Very soon the graduates of today will be active in various branches of the Armed Forces. In our four years at Fryeburg Academy we have enjoyed the privileges of our heritage. We have been free to read, to speak, to write, to work and to play. These privileges have been created and defended for us by those who have gone before. It is now our task to preserve them for those who will follow. Our responsibility demands courage, faith, sustained unseljish service and de- votion to the ideals of our land. To the work we must give our all. God grant that we will succeed. ANNE TEBBITT, ,SI A SCHOOL PRAYER BY MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR . CLASS Our Father, we thy children come before thee with humble hearts. We thank thee for all thy blessings: our homes, our church, our school, our great nation. Make us worthy of our noble heritage: to speak, to work, to play in a free land. Help us to be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, persistent in unsel fish devo- tion to our duty to restore to the world peace, unity, and brotherly love.

This concert was the great event of the year, and Peter Watson and I were to play a trumpet duet as the opening number of the program. My family was looking forward with pride to my appearance. They, poor souls, had endured my in- cessant practicing for weeks without too much griping. I had practiced nAmerica, the Beautifuln for the last time that morning when I decided to wash the trum- pet. I did a thorough job of cleaning it and finished by removing and wiping the three valves which are nearly alike. All was apparently in readiness for the after- noon. My new blue suit and the carefully pressed red and white jacket which members of the band wore had been neatly laid out on my bed. "Perhaps I'd better try it once moref, I thought, thinking of the trumpet, but just then mother called. '6You'd better come along to dinner now, Roger,', she said. "If you can't play that thing by now, you never willf, So I scurried along. The concert was to start at 3:00 and by 2:45 the bleachers and chairs which had been moved into the park were all filled. Sitting on the wooden platform in the center of the park, I looked out over a varied audience-elderly people sit- ting placidly anticipating the performance, small children scampering about or pouting to restraining mothers, worried parents, proud of their children's ac- complishments, bored parents who were sighing disinterestedly at the thought of the ordeal to which they would soon be subjected. Mother was obviously proud of her son, as she exchanged greetings with near- by friends, and father seemed pleased too. My whole family was seated in the third row so they could see and hear everything. Gramp, uneasy in his best clothes, bore the look of stubborn doubt which he had assumed from the first of my musical career as a trumpeter. My older sister Iane in her new pink taffeta dress was exchanging long and frequent glances with her boy friend Bob on the other side of the aisle, while Alice, the younger, when she wasn't making faces at me or tittering over some private joke with the girl behind her, was gazing listlessly about the park trying to catch someone's eye. MJ g4 The ef4C6Z6f611'ly 'Bell By the time the bandleader had finished his opening speech, the bright sun- light streaming through the trees had already forced all except the few who were lucky enough to be shaded for the moment to mop their brows and fan themselves with the printed programs. Peter and I walked forward and raised the trumpets to our lips. I could feel my legs tremble and wondered if Peter's were too. The slowly moving programs stopped, and all eyes were glued on us. We started to play our piece, "America, the Beautiful? The boomff-ruff-oof-blah-fff-brr-urr-ruff that emitted from my trumpet startled me and electrified the audience. They were too surprised to respond im- mediately with anything except a blank look of wonder. We started over again. This time all I could manage was a succession of squeaks amid muffled tones and blasts of air. A burst of laughter followed, and clapping and jeering greeted my efforts. Mine was the melody part, and I was on the verge of tears. Mother's eyes glistened sympathetically, and she dabbed at them with the corner of her green silk handkerchief. The expression on my father's face plainly showed his amazement at the unexpected turn of events, and Gramp was laughing heartily. Alice clapped and giggled with the others, but Iane did not look in my direction. She had a very vague, far-away look in her eyes, as if something beyond the limits of the park had suddenly commanded her full and undivided attention. She had obviously disowned me as any kin of hers. By this time I couldn,t muster enough breath to blow the trumpet at all, and I realized that the only way to avoid the catcalls was to sit down. I did so, my lips quivering, leaving poor Peter to carry on alone as best he could. I kept my seat throughout the concert staring Hxedly at the knot in the Hoof under the drummer's chair, not daring to look at my friends or relatives in the audience. It was not until afterward that I discovered I had put the valves in the instru- ment in the wrong order. I wouldnit tell anyone except my parents and teacher, but Alice overheard. So within a few hours all my friends had heard about it, and my mistake was the subject of much teasing for a long time to come. MAYNARD SEELYE, ,52 A DAY IN THE OPEN THERE was paper-thin ice clinging to the reeds along the weir bank the morning I slid my battered old canoe into the chilly river for the long trip downstream. Tom, my faithful old retriever, lay at my feet in the canoe. It was an early Oc- tober morning and the foliage was ablaze with red and yellow from lack Frostis palette. The air was clear and had the clean, tangy taste that only a fall morning can possess. Old Tom's nose was a-twitch with the wonderful smells drifting to him on the lazy breeze from the nearby uplands. We were after duck or snowgeese or the highly valued "honkers." Even as we dropped swiftly downstream in the early dawn light, there were large Hights The tffcadcnzy Bell 25 of geese in their true V -formation, winging their way toward the far distant southland's ponds and streams. Once, as we poked out around a bend, a half dozen blacks jumped into the air and hit for points upriver in a glistening harmony of white breasts and blackish wings. As the noble birds were wildly beating their wings for more altitude, I was mechanically following the lead drake with my shotgun. As the ducks wheeled over the tree tops directly to the port of us, I realized that they were too far out for my usixteenf' I wasn't disappointed. You wouldn't have been either if you could have witnessed the anxiety of those waterfowls in their struggle to escape the dreaded hunter. Soon we came to the grassy sleuth that was the inlet to the big marsh. As Tom and I stepped carefully ashore on the bank of the tiny inlet, a Hash of brown glory spiraled from beneath our very feet! The dog was immediately at atten- tion, but as for myself, I was too startled to do anything but gaze through the branches where the grouse had disappeared. Old Tom was rather disappointed in me, and said as much in his reproachful expression. We were soon settled snugly in the duck blind with our decoys floating around out in front. The day passed quickly with many flights of duck and geese wing- ing over us. At the end of the day, four ducks had fallen to my gun along with a giant speckled uhonkerf' Old Tom was quite pleased with himself, when we returned to our canoe in the late afternoon. The sun was settling down behind the sugar maples on the river bank as I guided the canoe to a landing in front of our pickup truck parked on the bank. I soon had the canoe and equipment loaded, and Old Tom and I turned back toward the river and the setting sun for one more look. There was never a sight more beautiful than that long V of Canadian Honkers dropping across the face of the sun, as with cupped wings they settled down toward the big marsh and a long, safe night,s rest and feed. I turned away with a glad heart. Never in my life had I seen nature portray herself as gloriously as in that day afield. IAMES R. LACAscE, '52 THE HERO Two seconds before the final buzzer, Rickie found himself holding the ball about forty feet from the basket. Taking a step to the side, he Hung the ball desperately at the hoop. The ball sailed upwards towards the metal hoop and, as the buzzer sounded, dropped cleanly through the cords for the game-winning basket. Delirious teammates and spectators mobbed him, slapping him on the back and congratulating him. Some of the boys grabbed him and hoisted him to their shoulders while others sought out the coach. Rickie felt his heart beat- ing and knew he had experienced the greatest thrill in sports. He was the hero tonight, fighting and hustling throughout the whole game, and keeping team 26 The Academy 7361! spirit at a high pitch. Whenever they fell behind, it was Rickie who kept them in the game, either with a crashing lay-up or a sensational long-shot. To Paul Ramsey, the coach, it was an incredible feat that his boys had ac- complished by qualifying for the sectionals. His surprise turned to amazement when his relatively inexperienced team squeaked through the sectionals and thus earned a berth in the huge state tournament at Butler Field House. To- night, after watching his team defeat powerful Mt. Washington in the last two seconds, he was completely speechless. The 14,000 fans that were jammed into the huge field house, however, were far from speechless, and the place was a bedlam after the most exciting game in state tournament history. Slowly the noise subsided, as a tall, lean man made his way to the microphone to present the awards. He was chairman of the tourna- ment. The attention of the crowd was immediately centered upon him. He pre- sented gold basketballs to each member of the losing team, and each player re- ceived a strong round of applause as his name was called. Then the members of the winning team were awarded wrist watches that would be worn by every boy for many a year. A hush fell over the crowd, for there was one more award to be given-the most valuable player award. This award is the most cherished and sought after in the state basketball competition. It is a huge gold-plated statue of a basketball player and is given to the boy that is most valuable to his team. To win this award a boy must have unusual ability, sportsmanship, and teamwork. A hush fell over the crowd as the chairman held up the trophy and asked Rickie to step forward. Rickie was taken completely by surprise. He ac- cepted the trophy humbly amid the cheers of teammates, opponents, and spec- tators. lt was about fifteen minutes before Rickie made his way down to the locker room. He had been congratulated by everyone within shouting distance of him and numerous pictures were taken of him for the newspapers. As he entered the humid locker room, he was cheered and praised. Rickie sat down on the bench and started to peel off his gold and blue uniform. He was tired and sweaty but very happy. Taking some soap, he stepped into the shower and relaxed as the warm shower beat against his weary body. He became drowsy, and his eyes seemed to close. Suddenly he was jolted. He opened his eyes in amazement and stared unbelievingly at his mother. "Come, Rickie, time to get up! Remember, you play Mt. Washington at the field house tonight, and I want you to have a good breakfastf, WILLIAM NIEMAN, '51 THE GREAT MISTAKE THE game was almost over. To Ieff Hamilton it was the end of football as this was the last game he'd ever play. He was a senior at Eaton College, and besides The Vfcadcmy 'Bell 27 playing varsity football for two years and being captain third, he had played varsity baseball and basketball. He was an honor student, and well-liked on the campus. This game was the biggest of the year, the play-off between Eaton and David- son colleges for the state title. Both teams were undefeated and were crack foot- ball machines. The players, coaches, and even the managers, had been drilled with exacting precision into living and thinking football. The day was perfect for football, and of the many thousands in the stadium, almost everyone was yelling at the top of his lungs, but the players couldnit hear that. They were obsessed by the thought of winning this all-important game. The score stood 6-6 with the ball resting on the Eaton thirty-five. With only a few minutes of playing time remaining, the quarterback of Eaton decided to pass. The pass went to Ieff out by his left end, but he was hit hard by a would-be tackler and spun around. Somewhat dazed, he kept right on going toward his own goal! His teammates caught him and tried to bring him down, but in vain. He crossed the goal line, and a man from Davidson brought him down. There just wasn't time enough left to undo the terrible damage and Davidson won 8-6. The despair and desolation in the stands was depressing. In the dressing room Ieff, hurriedly taking a shower and dressing, could hear the vicious undercur- rents which were ripping him apart. He could well imagine what the players were saying, and he felt they were justified in saying it. Years had passed since that game, and Ieff had put on weight. He was grey- ing slightly, and he had an air of authority about him. The years had been good to Iefif, and he had risen to great heights in the transportation business. He was very well-to-do. Much of his money he spent on Eaton trying, by giving to his college, to compensate for his terrific blunder in that long-past game. He gave money for the new Held house and stadium and art building. He was President of the Board of Trustees. The year of his twenty-fifth reunion Ielf had returned to his alma mater for the big celebration. As he walked into the large reception hall, he was greeted by many friends and admirers, but his ears caught a remark that filled him with anguish. Someone had just greeted him when another man walked into the room, strolled over to a fellow standing by the wall and asked, "Who is that big wheel?,' The reply was, "Oh, that,s Ieff Hamilton, you know, the man who lost the game to Davidson twenty-five years agoll' IOHN FREIDAY, '52 WATCH THE BIRDIE AGTILT your head to the left, please. Tuck your right elbow in a little. Now you aren't as sober as all that, are you? How about a nice smile?" I promptly pasted a sickly grin on my perspiring face. There was a second's pause before the final 28 The Vfcaclcmy 'Bell execution, but in that split second the grin had faded. I shuddered to think of the results. But that was only one picture. There were still two more to be endured. Look- ing up, I was surprised to find that Mr. Davis was gone! Thinking that I could relax for a minute I heaved a deep sigh, slouched in my chair, and lowered my head. Suddenly a loud roar exploded in my left ear. Whirling around, I saw Mr. Davis towering in back of me. "Please, my dear, straighten up! What do you think this is, a rest hour?'I I straightened with the speed ofa Sabre Iet and tried to calm my jangled nerves. Suddenly a shiver went up my spine as a hot, clammy hand dropped stealthily on my shoulder. "Drop this shoulder down just a bit, pleasef' he said. I dropped it. Apparently satisfied Mr. Davis stalked across the fioor and crawled under the fiapping black cloth. Again my eyes became frozen on the camera. Out popped Mr. Davis. "Now look right at me, please. Don't look at the camera, or youlll spoil the picturef, I finally located the wiry little man about halfway between the camera and one of the glaring lights. I-Ie was staring wildly at me. Thinking I had done something wrong again, I quickly lowered my eyes. This brought another ex- plosion. "Will you please look at me? How can I take your picture with your eyes down?" Up went my eyes. Mr. Davis, while holding my eyes in a hypnotic stare, asked me if I liked fish. How was I to know that I was supposed to say A'yes" while he snapped the picture? This would have given the "illusion" of a smile! The dam- age had been done, however, as Mr. Davis had snapped the picture despite my negative reply. In desperation he agreed to take the next one in a sober pose. Thinking this one would be easier, I kept my eyes on Mr. Davis and followed him each time he moved. I was determined not to let him out of my sight. All went well until I detected a slight movement out of the corner of my eye. It came from the di- rection of the dressing room door. There was Marlene peeking at me through the half-open door. Her look of anxiety was too much for my over-worked nerves. Despite my efforts, I felt a grin creeping across my face. I burst out laughing. Too late I remembered poor Mr. Davis. The picture had been taken. With a very discouraged look on his face, Mr. Davis motioned for me to send in the next one. We lived in a mixed state of constant dread and anticipation for the next week. When our proofs finally arrived we tore open the packages and fearfully lifted out the folders. My first proof was the one that had the half-faded smile on it. I looked as if I had just swallowed a glass of lemon juice. With an agonized groan I picked up the second one. This was the one that had been snapped while The tficadenzy Bell 29 I was indignantly telling Mr. Davis I did not like fish. I appeared ready to tackle the heaviest guy at Notre Dame. With a shudder I put it down and started to pick up the next one. Then I remembered this was the one in which I had been laughing. I dreaded to look at it. Then Rae spoke up and said, 'IOh, that's good. Gee, that is wonderful? FRANCES BUSWELL, ,gr GRAMPA I VVANT to take you with me to an old-fashioned, fifteen-room farmhouse. Now probably you will say, "What in the world are we doing here?,' You will find this rambling dwelling occupied by a little old man with bright blue eyes and a head full of stories. He is short and' has a great shock of white hair. You can imagine his looks and appearance by recalling someone you know who is seventy-three. He greets you with a cheery "Hello" and invites you in. Before you can ap- preciate the man, I must tell you something about him. He never eats eggs, so he says, because K'Had Harmon ate so many eggs he Hew up in a tree and they had to shoot him to get him downf' He likes to smoke his pipe so well that he says he would go without eating his meals if he could have his pipe. He stays at home most of the time because Hthese cars they have nowadays are dangerous, make me feel like a chicken in a coop on the way to 'ailfi He thinks very much of children and does everything he can to help them. One day he was Working vigorously on something, but he wouldn't tell us what it was. When it was completed, we had a cute little doll's carriage made of odds and ends that Grampa had found. He has also made small wheelbarrows, axe handles, hammer handles, stools, and even baseball bats. i He has a perfect mania for picking berries. Every summer he takes his berry pail and starts out to pick all the wild berries he can find for miles around. Some- times he stays out all day. This story would not be complete without mentioning his dog. He thinks more of her than anything in the world. She stays with him day andnight. He has taught her to shake hands, and he talks to her as if she were human. Grampa is not famous, rich or handsome, but he is kind-hearted, thoughtful and helpful. He will do anything to help his friends and his family. He taps shoes and repairs harnesses. He is the general handy man for the town. But if a tool is lost or left in the wrong place he has a fit. His quick wit and bright sense of humor draw people to him and he is much thought of by everyone. They say to him, "I see you shaved this morningf, "Yep, shaved before lightf' His short gray beard makes him look quaint and distinguished. We are always amused by the countless stories he tells of what he has been 30 The Academy 'Bell through in the last seventy years. My family all say that the world needs more people with a twinkling eye and a kind heart like our Grampa. VIVIAN SEELYE, '53 A YANKEE CUSTOM OLD Ned Brown, the village blacksmith, lounged idly in the warm sunshine, chewed on a cud of tobacco, and whittled. Behind him in the shop were a broken carriage shaft, a pile of junk iron, an old carriage wheel, and many miscellaneous articles to be mended. He was not a lazy man, but he liked to sit and whittle and think, just like any good New England Yankee. It was to this quiet scene that Hank brought his automobile to a screeching stop. Bounding from the car, he spotted Ned and dashed up the drive. In his hand was a broken javelin shaft. "Mr, Brown?" he shouted. "Um?,' "Here,s a broken spear that's got to be fixed right awayf' Receiving no reply, Hank shoved the broken shaft into Ned's lap and said impatiently, "The coach has got to have this fixed before three o'clock. There's a meet this afternoon with South Paris, and we've got to furnish the javelin. This is the only one we've got, and we can't keep the whole team waiting. Can you do it?,' "Nope!,' "NOP But why?" stammered Hank. "Busyl,' "But please, Mr. Brownf, said Hank. Misunderstanding his silence, he added, "The school will pay you." "I said I couldn't do it for youf, growled Ned and kept on whittling. "They would have done it in the city where I came from,' said dejected Hank, as he retraced his steps to the car. South Paris had arrived, and already the people had begun to assemble to watch the meet. The coach and "Mn" stood at one end of the field when Hank stood up. "Coach,', he said angrily, "I can,t get anywhere with that old man! Honestly! When I took the spear up to him and asked him to mend it, he sat there and told me he couldn't do it. 'Too busyf he said! He was just whittling when I got there, and .... H The angry boy was interrupted by "Mr.,', who threw back his head and laughed heartily. Running his hand through his graying hair and mopping his brow, 'iMr." said, "Now Hank, you go back to Ned Brownis, and this is what I want you to do-.H The Hank who drove up to the blacksmithis shop the second time that after- The Academy 'Bell 31 noon was a very different boy. He slowly pulled his car to a stop and ambled up the drive. Ned was still sitting on the steps and whittling a pine stick. After Hank had sprawled on the grass near the steps, he opened a conversation. 'ABeen pretty cold latelyf, he ventured. "Going to be a whole lot colder," replied Ned sullenly. "It iS?,' "Can always tell when therels a cold spell coming onf, "How?" questioned Hank. "Corns!" They always ache when it gets colder. "--and they do now?" "Sure do. Can hardly walk on 'em any moref' "Golly, thatis too badf, "I'm not sorry for myself, son. Itis the farmers I,m sorry forf, Their corn, you mean?" laughed Hank. "Yes, their corn! Isnit funny either. Take Iim Hawkins, for example. Know lim?" Wishing not to appear too ignorant, Hank nodded. "Iim has worked hard this summer," continued Ned. "Had a big field of corn. Now Iim has a lot of kids to feed, and he depended on that corn. Well, we got a cold spell too early. Corn was just beginning to come." "Was it all killed?" asked the boy cautiously. "Most all. He got some to the corn shop, but nowhere near as much as heid planned on. But theyill manage. Might have to let the hired man go. Theyive got a good bunch of cattle. Won first prize at the fair this yearf' "Thais wonderfulf, said Hank enthusiastically. "Lot of competition these daysf, . "I should say there is competition! Used to be only a few folks would enter a cow or two, and it would be only those that lived quite close. Now every Tom, Dick, and Harry enters a few cows even if he lives fifty or a hundred miles away." "Guess the fair is a lot different, isn,t it? " "Differentl Why back when I was a boy, the fair was the biggest event of the year. The women would cook for weeks before. Everyone would take a picnic and stay all day. You'd see people you hadn't seen for years. The women would have pie and cake contests, and the men would see who raised the largest pumpkin. There would be oxen pulling, cow judging, and1.,' "Thais lots different than it is now!'l "There,s no comparison." "I would have liked to have gone to one of those fairs," said Hank truthfully. "That was quite a bit before you were born, sonf' said Ned. "But say, didn,t cs you have something for me to fix for the game this afternoon?"

Tinker Library between three and four some Thursday afternoon, you might hear the strains of a Beethoven symphony, or the music of Brahms, Bach, Rubenstein, Tchaikowsky, and many others. What you will be hearing is the Twilight Concert, under the direction of Mr. Blaich, who plays the records for us. Before Mr. Blaich plays a record, he gives us a brief history of the music and its composer, so that by the end of the year the compositions are not unpronounceable words with impossible spellings, but they are beautiful pieces of music, written by composers who will always be re- membered by the students attending these Twilight Concerts. BLYNN GARNETT, '52 CHRISTMAS VESPERS ON December I9 the Academy held its annual Christmas Vespers program. It was composed of a tea held in the Elizabeth W. Tinker Library, followed by a musical program and Christmas play in Curtis Hall. Mrs. Stella Gray supervised the preparation of the holiday decorations and refreshments. Members of the sophomore home economics class served, while Mrs. Hugh Hastings and Mrs. Iohn Weston poured. Many parents and friends enjoyed this part of the service. After the tea, everybody congregated in Curtis Hall to enjoy a fine musical program directed by Mr. Petillo. Songs were sung by the combined boys, and girls' glee clubs, a solo by Henry Anthony, two by the boys, double quartet con- sisting of Donald Coe, Alan Cotton, George Hinds, Donald Brown, Iohn La- Casce, Frank Cofsky, Donald Hale, and Henry Anthony. Also we heard a violin solo by Albert Gilpatrick, piano solos by Darla Iewett and Grace Weston, and a piano duet by Donald Coe and Darla Iewett. Beverly Stearns played an ac- cordion while Reba Nisbet and Nancy Stearns sang. The entire program was done well. 34 The Vfeademy 'Bell The final event of the afternoon was the dramatization of a one-act Christmas play, Under the Stars. The theme Of the play was that intolerance and prej- udices Of racial origin disappear as people share common experiences. The parts were played by Glenice Harmon, Priscilla Draper, Peter Hastings, Fred Wenzel, Robert Chadbourne, Iohn LaCasce, Ivan Curtis and Glenn Pitman. The pro- duction was under the direction of Miss Barbara Leighton and was a fitting ending for a full afternoon of entertainment. GLENN PITLIAN, '52 I SENIOR DRAMA-1951 ON the evening of Ianuary II, 1951, the annual Senior Drama took place at the K. of P. Hall. The crowded hall was full of bubbling excitement as families and friends came to see Oar Miss Brooks, a three-act comedy. Anne Tebbitt, who had the leading role as Miss Brooks, excellently portrayed a typical English teacher in an overcrowded public high school. From the moment the curtain rose, there were continual bursts Of laughter from the audience, which was led on by antics and lines of Owen Palmer, as the athletic director being chased by Miss Brooks. The efforts of George Fernald, as the school prin- cipal, to keep the atmosphere calm, ended inevitably in havoc, but Miss Brooks emerged victorious by presenting the school play and capturing her man. The entire cast deserves credit for the success of the production so ably di- rected by Mrs. Heartz. The characters were as follows: Miss Brooks , . Hugo .......,.. ..

Last spring during Commencement Week, the chorus provided the music at the public speaking contest, baccalaureate, and at the graduation exercises. When we returned to school last fall, we began at once to prepare for the Christmas season. ln December, the entire chorus sang several selections for Christmas Vespers. Solo ,parts were sung by Ann Brown, Anne Tebbitt, Reba Nisbet, Nancy Stearns and Ioan Stacy. Henry Anthony sang "O Holy Nightf' Since Christmas Mr. Petillo has been drilling us for the combined spring concerts. We are proud of our glee club. IOAN STACY, ,SI BOYS' CHORUS UNDER the direction of Mr. Petillo, a boys' chorus was organized last spring to sing with the girls in the combined concerts with Bridgton and Gould Acade- mies. The success of the chorus is due primarily to the efforts of Mr. Petillo, who has succeeded where others have failed in building an interest in a boys' chorus. It is now composed of about thirty boys and meets once a week on Thursday. Besides participating in the combined concerts last year, the boys sang at Com- mencement and Christmas Vespers. At Christmas, there was a number by a double quartet of boys from the chorus and also a solo by Henry Anthony. We are now looking forward to the combined concerts which are set for April this year. lt is hoped that the chorus will continue to hold its place among school acuvmes- MAYNARD A. SEELYE, ,52 THE IOINT CONCERTS A NEW tradition has been established. Last year, for the first time, Gould, Bridg- ton, and Fryeburg Academies met on a cooperative rather than a competitive basis by forming a joint chorus. This group of approximately sixty voices gave three concerts, one in each town. These concerts provided an opportunity to be- come acquainted with the other schools, a chance to make friends, and enjoy- ment and pleasure for participants and audience. "lt's a Grand Night for Singing," under the competent direction of Frye- burg,s Mr. Petillo, opened the program. After several combined chorus num- bers, each school presented its own specialties. Gould's 'AKentucky Babef, Bridg- tonls "The Orchestra Song," and Fryeburg's special arrangement of "Are You Sleeping, Brother IohnP', Cwith sound effects by Peter Clarkj were hummed for many weeks afterward. Under the direction of Gould's Miss Griggs, the performance found its dramatic climax in the resounding trumpets and crashing chords of "God of our Fathers."

The fresh- men had been told to report to the gymnasium the third period.

At this point the fun started. We made attempts, but what clumsy efforts! Then she told us to find partners for our first solo. This caused more confusion than ever, a tangling of feet, and much laughter. That day the girls limped away from the gym, but after several sessions like this, we made the grade. By the night of the dance, We had confidence that We could take our places on the dance Hoof among our upper classmen. The class of ,54 Wishes to express its appreciation for the opportunity of hav- ing excellent instruction When it helped so much. IUNE WALKER, '54 FRESHMAN RECEPTION THE great eventful night had come at last-the night we freshmen had dreaded so long. The thought of Freshman Reception had sent chills up and down our 40 The Academy fBeZZ spines and had made our hearts skip a few beats because of the excitement. The members of the class of ,54 were to make their debut before a crowd of 450 who were eager to watch us perform our stunts which had been plotted by the juniors. We paraded fmore or less stumbledj into the gym, some of us rolling over and over and others walking backwards. The girls were dressed in shorts, shirts, and dungareesg and our hair-dos were ten pigtails tied with ribbons of all sizes. Some boys were clad in bathing suits, some in dresses, and one or two in diapers. My! We looked somber, for we didn't know what was to befall us. We were painted with lipstick and black stage make-up. We approached the platform with the boys going to the left and the girls turning to the right. The junior committee was waiting to welcome us to Fryeburg Academy, and what a wel- come it was! The high cost of eggs didn't faze the juniors, for they used many in a num- ber of stunts. There were egg and molasses shampoos, cold spaghetti luncheons, choruses of singers fwe sounded like night howlersj, barefoot walks over crack- ers and eggs, and two people feeding each other marshmallow Huff. After performing our stunts, we freshmen danced the first dance to the music of Donald Coe and his piano. Then we all went downstairs to dress and make ourselves presentable for the social dance which followed. It was a great deal of fun, and I know, speaking for myself and other fresh- men, that we really had no reason to fear the juniors. I'll bet we had more fun than they did. Our best wishes to the freshmen of ,52 and especially to the ones of '53 when we shall be juniors! DARLA IEWETT, '54 CHRISTMAS . DANCE WITH the absence of a football dance this fall, some of the student body gathered together enough initiative to create a very successful substitute which they called the "Christmas Dancef, Behind the whole idea and chairman of the working committee was our ingenious finance wizard, Ora L. 'APeter', Clark. The gym was appropriately styled with large, colorful candy canes and hr boughs. In the corner, completely decorated with bulbs, tinsel, and colored lights, stood a huge Christmas tree which certainly supplied the right atmos- phere for the night before Christmas vacation. And so it was to the welcome strains of Roy Horneis orchestra that a "just- righta' crowd danced away another delightful evening. "We salute you, Peter Clarkln ANN BROWN, '51 SADIE HAWKINS ' AT last the bell had rung and we all rushed over to the gym to see the basketball games which started the Winter Carnival. The girls and I.V. boys played Casco and both teams were victorious. The Vfeaclemy 'Bell 41 After the games a buffet supper, served in the Alumni House, was followed by a Moccasin Dance at the rink. However, it began to rain, so we took refuge in the Alumni House where we danced in the dining room. At 8:30 we all bounced back to the gym to watch the Varsity boys play Northeastern. It was an exciting and hard-fought game, but we lost by a few points. Friday afternoon there was recreational skiing and skating. As there had not been enough snow previously to practice on, the ski events were not held. How- ever, the skiers enjoyed themselves on Cranmore Mountain while the rest skated to music on the school rink. . Finally the night of the Coronation Ball arrived. As everyone waited breath- lessly for the queen, the attendants, Iean Eastman, Anne Tebbitt, Carolyn Gerry, and Iennie Davis appeared first, walking slowly under the arch made by ski poles. Next came the little crown bearer, Susan Harring. Last the very gracious queen, Ann Brown, made her entrance. When "Mister', had crowned her, she and her escort led the Grand March. After the Grand March the evening was danced away to the music of Art Turner and his orchestra. And so another suc- cessful and delightful Winter Carnival ended. DIANE EASTMAN, '53 ASSEMBLIES THE School Assembly Service has provided us this year with many enjoyable and informative programs. I should like to mention a few of these assemblies. The day we were to have Paul Burke, the cartoonist, Mr. Burke was ill and un- able to come, so he sent a substitute who did a very creditable job. Among his most interesting stunts was having one of the students come up to have his portrait drawn by the "rule of thumb" method. The portrait came out as a nicely executed picture of the artist's thumb. Our next speaker was Simeon Oliver, better known as Nutchuck, whom some of the older students remembered as having been here two years ago. His pro- gram concerned the different habits and living conditions of tribes of Eskimos and some of their legends. He also played some of his own compositions on the piano very competently. Pierrot and Pierrette fMr. and Mrs. O'Brienj gave a remarkable performance of roller-skating in the gymnasium on a portable 'Aroller-rink matv which they brought with them. Some of the students participated in the stunts, and each received for his bravery a medal and a book on roller-skating. On February 5, Lt. Iames C. Whittaker presented an astounding story from part of his book We Though! We Heard the Angels Sing. Lt. Whittaker was one of the men on the raft in the Pacific with Eddie Rickenbacker for twenty- one days. The story he told was of the remarkable birth of a faith which grew in his heart after the unbelievable events of his siege which seemed to point di- rectly to a higher power guiding and controlling his destiny during those un- forgettable twenty-one days. GEORGE HINDS, ,SI . Y-TEENS Prcsfdezzz IEAN EASTBIAN Vice PI'C'.YIidEI1Z EVELYN BARNES Secretary ciLENICE HARINION fldzfixor Miss P1usc1LLA HIGGINS Y-TEEN meetings IDUSI evidently be a lot of fun since the majority of the girls in the school belong to the organization. The group regularly meets every second and fourth Monday. Our first meeting in the fall was devoted to a scavenger hunt. This not only helped the new students get acquainted, but all seemed to enjoy bringing back some of the queer objects for which they were sent. At a later meeting, the olficers prepared and delivered talks about the great world-wide organization to which we belong. Prior to the Christmas season, the club sent chocolate candies to a Y-Teen group in Germany. The annual Christmas party for the girls in grades one to three was held in the Assembly Hall. From all appearances, the Y-Teen members enjoyed them- selves fully as well as the little girls. Working with the Girls' Athletic Council, we helped sponsor the annual Hawkins Heyday which was a tremendous success. At one meeting, Miss Lillian Swan, an alumna of Fryeburg, gave a very in- teresting talk on her work at the Western Maine Forestry Nursery. The edcczdemy 'Bell 43 VVe were very fortunate to have the privilege of hearing Mrs. Sydney R. Ussher talk on her experiences in Hawaii where she supervised a Y.W.C.A. group. Mrs. Ussher has had sixteen years, experience in this Held and besides her work in Hawaii, she has directed Y.W.C.A. camps in Michigan, Idaho, Pennsylvania, Turkey and Czechoslovakia. In looking back over all these events, we realize that we have had a successful year. Let's watch next yearis club grow and wish them at least a few of the good times we have had. IOAN STACY, ,51 HOME ECONOMICS "I'vE got a stack of homework to do tonight, girls. Oh, yes, I almost forgot, I've got to write up Home EC. for THE BELL. We've all been doing so many interesting things this year that itls hard to decide where to begin. "Did you know that the freshman girls have a new class this year called the Science of Living? What a help it must be to learn to know the school and your classmates before the year is entirely gone! Also, one of the girls told me that she had learned a lot of little things about improving her personal appearance. I understand that Mr. Blaich came in and explained the game of football to them. What a help that would have been when we watched our first game! "The sophomores are the only class doing foods this year. They certainly proved themselves with that wonderful Christmas tea. Those boxes of candy that they packed for gifts were out of this world. I tasted some! 'gWhat a lot of fun we've had working with our two new Singer machines. We should certainly be proud of our Home Ec. room. "Remember those adorable bouquets Miss Morrison, our student teacher, helped us make from popcorn and twigs. I'm quite sure that we got more paint on ourselves than the branches. "Pretty soon we'll start planning the banquets for the F.F.A., the A.A., and of course the Mother and Daughter banquet which welll enjoy the most. That brings to mind our annual Fashion Show. There's a lot of confusion with hur- ried dressing and late arrivals but it's still fun. "I guess noontime with the school lunch program is one of the Home Ec. room's busiest times. Of course there are other instances, such as preparation of snacks for football players and lunches for P.T.A. "The sophomores certainly did a wonderful job preparing the Honor Society banquet. Did you see that sweet little gingerbread house that was used as a centerpiece F "I think that we are extremely lucky to be able to set up our own standards and work as individuals under as considerate a teacher as Mrs. Grayf, LEITA MONROE, ,51 44 The Academy Bell LE CERCLE FRANCAIS THIS year the French III students, with the help of Miss Higgins, have organized a French club called Le Cercle Frangais. Meetings are held once a month from 2:00 to 4:00. Among the activities are playing cards, games, seeing Film strips, and making records of our voices while conversing only in French. The meetings are not only enjoyable but educational, since they give aid in French conversation. The group hopes to take a week-end trip to Montreal to hear French spoken. Our sincere thanks go to Miss Higgins for making the club possible. GEORGE FERNALD, ,5 I LITERARY CLUB THIS year for the First time the Fryeburg Academy students have a Literary Club with Mrs. Freeman as advisor. Members of the third and fourth year college English classes who write good good literature are qualified. George Fernald, as chairman, presides over the meetings which are held twice a month at Mrs. Freemanis. The members write essays and short stories which they read aloud at the meetings. Constructive criticisms, discussions, and suggestions for improving the work follow. In this way we are not only learning to write good literature, but to judge and appreciate it also. Our sincere gratitude goes to Mrs. Freeman for her help and the use of her pleasant home as a place to meet. GEORGE FERNALD, ,SI FRYEBURG ACADEMY FUTURE FARMERS LAST Iune, Clyde Woodward, Iames Hill, Chester Gilpatrick, Donald Quincy, Clayton Richardson and our advisor, Mr. Welch, attended the state F.F.A. con- vention at the University of Maine. Clayton received the State Farmers Degree and is the Hrst boy from our chapter to earn this degree. Clyde was awarded a Hfty dollar prize for his dairy project achievement. This fall we had a dairy and beef judging team at Fryeburg Fair. Iohn Chandler tied for first place in dairy cattle judging and won nine dollars for his effort. We showed four cows at the fair, taking Hrst place with one and second place with the other three in their respective classes. We worked outdoors this fall building a tool shed on the farm for housing the machinery. The junior and senior class went to the trade show at Lewiston this winter where we heard dairy talks and looked over the new machinery on display. We saw several new ideas in machinery and farm equipment. Last May, we held a Father-Son banquet which was well attended, and we plan to have another this year. The Meademy 'Bell 45 We have initiated the Green Hands and Chapter Farmers. Mr. Osgood of Springmont Farm sponsored an F.F.A. calendar this year upon which are printed the names of our officers and the other twenty-two members of the chapter. The officers are as follows: President DONALD QUINCY Vice President IAIXIES HILL Secretary CHESTER GILPATRICK Treasurer WARREN Cox Reporter IOHN CHANDLER Sentinel DONALD RosERs CHESTER GILPATRICK, '52 GREGG AWARDS EACH month the Gregg Company publishes a set of standard tests in shorthand and typewriting which are sent to teachers of those subjects. These tests provide much interest and enthusiasm among the students. Only one test in each sub- ject can be taken during a month. These tests are given in the classroom and are then sent in to the Gregg office where they are corrected by a Board of Exam- iners. If a student passes a test he receives a certihcate issued by the company. This certificate inspires the student to put in extra time and effort during the following month in order that he may earn the next certificate. The students' reward for their concentrated effort and practice is another Gregg certificate. The following girls have won awards to date: SHORTHAND O. G. A.

Tinker Chapter of the National Honor Society brought its IQSO meetings to a close with a very enjoyable banquet at Ye Olde Inn in Fryeburg. Before the banquet, a private ceremony was performed and loan Stacy was in- ducted into the Honor Society. The Honor Society meets twice each month. At some of our meetings Mr. Larrabee, Mr. Petillo, and Mr. Cornee of the Portland Press Herald have spoken. At the other meetings, the members have led discussions on such subjects as manners in public, dating, and table etiquette. Through the kindness of Mr. Tinker, a Christmas dinner was enjoyed by the members in the Home Economics room. On February 16, IQSI, an induction of the following members was held in the Assembly Hall: Glenice Harmon, Nancy Stearns, Helga Osgood, Peggy Ann MeDaniels, Evelyn Barnes, George Fernald, Iohn LaCasce, Maynard Seelye, and Bennie Davis. Q At the first September meeting, the ollicers were elected as follows: president, George Hinds, vice president, Carolyn Gerry, secretary, Iohn Stacy, and Leita Monroe, assistant treasurer. School publicity, keeping of a scrapbook of school activities, awarding medals The tffeddemy 'Bell 47 for the freshman boy and girl who maintain the highest scholastic average, and locating alumni are the major projects this year. Since the induction of new members in February, the group is now composed of fourteen members. It is hoped that many more students will show the in- centive and ability to meet its requirements of character, scholarship, leadership, and service. LEITA TVIONROE, ,SI THE CAMERA CLUB THE Camera Club is organized for juniors and seniors who are interested in photography. It is directed by Mr. Blaich who lectures on different uses of the camera. An attempt is made to teach the fundamental rules of composition and the common errors to avoid in taking pictures. Stress is laid on having some- thing to say with your camera. The meetings are held on Tuesday at 2:50 P.M. in the drafting room. We have learned how to take indoor pictures using artificial lighting. Most important of all, we have learned some of the facts which will enable us to get better results with our cameras.

ANNUAL PENNY CARNIVAL P1.EAsE come with us to the Gibson Gym to our annual Penny Carnival! As we go through the door directly to our left is a huge platform surrounded by every- thing from "bobby" pins to men's overshoes. We hear the auctioneer, Ora fPeterj L. Clark shouting "Who'll give me 45 cents, over there, now 50 cents, Who,ll give me 55? Is that all? Iust a small 50 cents for a dress you could buy in a store for iS5.oo? This pretty dress going for 50 cents? 50 cents, is that all? 50 cents once, 50 cents twice, and sold to that lady down theref, Peter carries on all eve- ning until all his Wares are sold. ' We try to follow the crowds just getting out of the Fights, who are hurrying right past and on to the Home Ec. hotdog stand. By the time We reach the stand all the hotdogs and coffee are gone, so we settle for a hamburger and a cold drink. While eating We watch some boys trying to get a basketball into a bucket which has a hole through the bottom. I-Iow about seeing the movie? All right, letss Wait until the second show. As we walk along the hall, we see stands selling balloons, taking pictures and selling candy. "Guess how many beans in this jarf, reads one sign. Pitching pennies seems to be one groupls enjoyment, as they are all clustered about the water- filled tub. 'LSee how strong you are, try our machine," reads another sign. "Have The tffeaalemy 'Bell 49 your palm read, see Madame Zaroola,', reads still another. Next is the Honor Societyis booth Where all can win a prize. Fights? Letls go! This time wrestling is on. Last time they had boxing. Downstairs, beano is being played with Mr. Larrabee calling the numbers and Miss Leighton assisting. Prizes of all types are being Won. The evening is gone before we realize it. At the close of the carnival the win- ning numbers are announced and answered by shrieks of, 'gThat,s my number,', or groans, "Only a couple of numbers offf' Everyone chattering happily carries off his winnings, if not, well, a good time was had by all. OLIVE DESCHAMBEAULT, ,51 GRADUATION EXERCISES 1950 ON Sunday, Iune r 1, 1950, the graduation exercises began with the Baccalaureate Service held in the Congregational Church. Albert R.

BROWN THE Fryeburg Academy,s varsity nine finished its year with a seasonal record of eight wins, seven losses. The varsity was a hard hitting ball club which showed fine teamwork throughout the year. Donald Leach carried most of the burden in the pitching department with a 7-3 record. Three of his victories were shutouts where Hne performances were displayed by all the players. Francis Hartford showed his ability behind the plate on many occasions. He did as well in the batter,s box, having nailed down the cleanup position. Franny was awarded the Richard C. Turner trophy for the most valuable player on the Fryeburg team. Much credit is due Coach Gray for his excellent handling of the team. Also his expert training of individual players proved invaluable to the varsity,s success. THE LINE-UP C. Hammond-2b. I.

After a discouraging first game, the team with its high spirit went on to win its second game. The I.V.'s suffered a loss in their third game which proved to be their last defeat of the season. We finished our season with a close contest of pitchers with Stephens High. In this game Libby of Fryeburg and Morton of Stephens pitched on a hot day in May. Two consecutive hits in the last inning produced the winning run for a 2-I victory. Q Throughout the season timely hits by Iohn Douglas and the fine performances by the pitching staff enabled us to have a respectable record of five wins, two losses. It was under the fine coaching of "Pop" that we rapidly progressed in hitting, fielding, and teamwork. THE SQUAD L. Bixby-2b. W. Bartlett-p. I. Douglas-Ib. P. Hastings-c. I. LaCasce-3b. Subs.: D.

FOOTBALL Coaches: ROBERT S. WELLS, CLIFFORD L, CiRAY Manager: ROBERT CHADBOURNE THE 1950 football season showed improvement over the 1949 schedule. Coach Wells was again on hand to pilot the eleven with Mr. Gray assisting as line coach. In the seven-game season the Fryeburg eleven managed to cop two games highlighted by a 20-0 win over Hebron Reserves. The season began at the Academy field with a win over neighboring Bridgton High. Bridgton proved more diflicult than expected and held Fryeburg most of the way before the locals pushed across two touchdowns to nail down a 12-6 win. Next Saturday saw Fryeburg bow to a strong South Paris eleven by a score of 21-o. Hale and Hedges played good games in a losing cause. The hrst game away took place the next weekend as Norway High played host to Fryeburg. Both teams played hard, but Fryeburg could do nothing against the Norway gridders, and the game ended in a 32-0 defeat. Kents Hill invaded Fryeburg for our last home game. Fullback Mike Collins, playing his first game at Fryeburg, scored our lone touchdown as Kents Hill led all the way to win 25-6. 56 The Academy fBcZZ On the following weekend Fryeburg again took to the road to play the best game of the season in defeating the Hebron Reserves by a score of 20-o. Holmes, Don Hale and Al Cotton all scored for Fryeburg. A new opponent was added this year as the Bowdoin Frosh second team played host to Fryeburg at Brunswick. This proved to be a very good and very close game, with Bowdoin winning 12-6. With a full week of training left, spirit was high for the Gould game at Bethel. The game was hard fought all the way, but again our opponent proved too much and Gould went on to win, 36-6. Next year will see most of the squad returning, but several of the outstanding players of 1950 will leave gaps diflicult to fill.

ROBERT CHADBOURNE, '52 CROSS COUNTRY Coach: ELDON W. HEARTZ THIS yearis cross country season was a year of rebuilding. Hampered by the loss of experienced runners, Coach Heartz led a team composed for the larger part of freshmen and sophomores. These boys, up against the heavy competition offered by such teams as Gould and Hebron, were not yet developed to the point of emerging victors. The season was made up of four meets. Our opponents were Hebron and Gould and two meets with Bridgton Academy. The 1950 cross country season displayed great interest and determination, so the hopes of future cross country successes are high. The squad was composed of Iohn Bell, Kendall Harris, Wayne Bartlett, Wal- ter Woodward, Henry Anthony, Donald Palmer, and Donald Fox. The schedule: Gould I5 Fryeburg 40 Hebron I5 Fryeburg 40 Bridgton 21 Pryeburg 34 Bridgton 2I Fryeburg 34 ROBERT CHADBOURNE, '52 The tffcadcmy 'Bell 57 TRACK LAST springis track team was fairly successful. The first attempt was a triangular meet with Mexico and Rumford. The scoring ran, First-Fryeburg, second- Stephens High, Rumford, third-Mexico High, Mexico. The second meet was another triangular with Bridgton Academy and Kents Hill School. The scoring ran, first-Bridgton, second-Fryeburg, third-Kents Hill. Where Fryeburg had the majority of Firsts, it held few second or third places due to lack of depth. Next came the Bates relays in which the team found keen competition in teams from Kennebunkport and Skowhegan. It placed fourth behind Gould Academy. In the Oxford County meet Fryeburg placed second behind Gould, and in the state meet we placed fourth among the class B schools of the state. Don Brown scored high for Fryeburg, soaring 20' 6" in the running broad jump and taking a close second in a very fast 440-yard dash. The team was satisfied only because it placed ahead of its rival Gould. DONALD HALE, ,5I SKIING ALTHOUGH we had no ski team this year, we did have a ski club, and the oflicers were: co-presidents, Iohn LaCasce and Alan Cotton, secretary, Alice Breen. Sev- eral excursions were made to Cranmore Mountain, and every other afternoon in- struction by Miss LaCasce was given at Pine Hill. Due to the lack of snow on Starks Hill, the annual ski races during Sadie Hawkins were not held. A bus took a group of skiers to Pinkham Notch Ski Lift one Saturday, but longer trips such as this were not planned because of the poor skiing conditions. However, on the weekend of March I7, a trip is being planned for Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch. If there are as many students interested in skiing next year as there have been this year, Fryeburg Academy will have another ski team yet! ALICE BREEN, ,53 BOYS' BASKETBALL Coach: CHARLES A. COTTON Manager: WILLIAM ALEXANDER, IR. HAVING dropped out of the old league composed of all high schools two years ago, the Fryeburg Varsity entered its second season of the stiffer competition of- fered by prep schools and college freshmen. The team showed much improve- ment over last year's squad by copping four wins to double the 1950 mark. BOYS' BASKETBALL FRONT Row, left to 'riylrff Philip Hedges, John Freiday, VVilliam Nieman, Michael Collins, Donald Brown. BACK Row: Ronald Novak, Kendall Harris, Colby Knight, Peter Hathaway, Manager VVil1iam Alexander, Ir. Under the able coaching of Mr. Cotton, Hve boys who had never before played together took the Hoof against such teams as the Bowdoin Frosh and Portland Iunior College. Experience came fast and had the team had longer to work to- gether, it might have been a stronger team. The top offense this year came from Bill Nieman, a P.G., and Don Brown. Toward the end of the season Mike Collins, continuing to play his usual good floor game, became one of the big scoring threats. The scoring of these men plus the Floor work of Phil Hedges and Iohn Freiday provided the nucleus of this yearls team. Others on the squad who saw service were Colby Knight, Kendall Harris, Ronald Novak, and Peter Hathaway. The highlight game of the year came as we defeated Holderness Academy of Plymouth, N. H., a new opponent this year. The entire team played well to- gether and proved beyond doubt the capability of the squad. The 1951 squad was made up of five graduates and four juniors. Next year should see much of the First team returning with a yearis experience behind them. With a good break here and there 1951 should see a strong team in action.

BASKETBALL THE I.Vfs played a seven-game schedule, netting three wins and four losses. Al- though the losses exceed the wins, most of the reverses came up on unfamiliar courts. They split with Casco, Bartlett, and Holderness, with a lone loss against Norway sandwiched in. Several of the boys played exceptionally well and should prove to be an asset to next year's varsity.

FRED WENZEL, ,53 SOFTBALL U OVERCOMING the miseries of sunburned arms and faces and long practices, the Varsity nine started for Bridgton last May ninth full of spirit. They won not only this one, but all that were to follow with the exception of one unscheduled game with Sanford at the Deering Playday. The most exciting game of the year 60 The Academy 'Bell was the Final one when We played Bartlett. At the end of the Fifth inning the score was II-2, Bartlettls favor. The imperishable spirit of the Fryeburg nine brought a speedy recovery. As a result Fryeburg Won I3-I2. The Iunior Varsity Won two out of three games.

Once again the girls' athletic field is bustling with activity as the hockey season begins. Under the supervision of Coach Killman and Coach LaCasce, varsity and junior varsity squads, made up largely of veterans, were assembled. The first event of the season was the annual playday held at Deering for both varsity and junior varsity teams. The Fryeburg girls brought home a win of 4-0 against Edward Little and two losses of 3-1 to Deering and Wilton. Other schools at the playday were Waynflete, Cony and South Portland. Following the playday the scheduled games started. The first games were played at home with Waynflete. Our junior varsity won 1-0 and the varsity team tied 2-2 after a very well-played game.

The Varsity was less fortunate with a two-point defeat from the old rival, Bartlett High. This was a hard blow but, undaunted, the girls began to settle down for some rugged practices followed by a hard-earned, one-point victory over Bridgton Academy. The,Varsity finished its season with six wins and three lossesg the Junior Varsity finished with live wins and one game lost.
