The class of 1952, although not large, is a class with ability. It is my wish that each member of this class may have a useful and satisfying life. May I call your attention to a quotation from the Bible: "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required, and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."

SAVOIA Science B.A. Bowdoin College T An Appreciation As we approach our time of graduation, we pause to count our blessings -the blessings we have received during our years in high school. We, who have attended F ryeburg Academy, have been fortunate to receive our edu- cation in an environment of uplifting natural beauty. The school faces the ever-changing colors of the White Mountain Range with Pleasant Moun- tain, Kearsarge, and Baldface presenting intimate, colorful pictures. The mountain background accentuates the varying seasonal colors of the in- tervale bordering the Saco River. There is a warmth and friendliness in nature's beauty surrounding the village that reaches into every realm of our school life. The Fryeburg Academy BELL is a testimony of friendliness, of an ac- tive, creative school life under sympathetic, understanding faculty guid- ance. Here we discuss our problems with our teachers, knowing that they will make an earnest effort to help us. Every student of F ryeburg Acad- emy feels he is an individual who is contributing to the school community. No one is looked down upon because he has to work his way onward. No one is excluded because he is of a different race or religion. All belong to the school community, and each has his part to play. These blessings carry responsibilities. They are great responsibilities to- day. From Fryeburg Academy we carry with us courage, might, human understanding, and the will to play our part to help to create peace in our world.

It had been a routine trip for Uncle Joe and his men, but it was a new expe- rience for me. I had seen a lot of the sea in the past years with my father, but he had never taken me this far from the island. Ever since Pearl Har- bor Dad and Joe had been members of a secret organization under opera- tion "Watch Dog." Now a month after my seventeenth birthday I was a sworn member of the crew whose job it was to watch carefully for strange craft or suspicious characters while fishing about the island. The grey of dusk was swiftly turning into the black of night. We were now approaching the back shore of our island. Two miles further along the coast there was a sheltered harbor, my home, supper, and a warm bed. Then suddenly the unpredictable dissolved my dreams of comfort. The regular purr of the engine became broken and a few seconds later died completely. Our momentum and a swift current carried us around the point. Before anyone could say a word. I saw a big splash on the far side of the cove. Thinking it to be a whale, I pointed it out to the others. What I saw next made me freeze in horror. The spray subsided revealing a submarine. No one dared to move a muscle. as the sub moved slowly along the shore. Seconds passed like hours. Finally, we discerned that their desti- nation was about five hundred yards out from the middle of the beach. The hatch opened, and two men climbed out carrying a rubber raft with them. A third appeared to help them launch their craft, store supplies, and to watch for their safe landing. Five minutes later their raft had dis- appeared behind an abandoned cabin several hundred yards back from the shore. The sub made its way swiftly and silently from the cove and disappeared beneath the surface. The moonlight which revealed the whole operation was fortunately shut from us by the tall evergreens on the embankment to the left. We 26 The Academy Bell now anchored the boat, for it was dangerous to try the engine. We gave the sub time to get out of earshot, then through our ship-to-shore tele- phone Joe got in contact with the F.B.I. in Boston. Our membership num- ber and a few clear, concise directions were all that they needed. Four hours later, at approximately nine-thirty that evening, a navy patrol plane glided over the tree tops and landed not twenty yards from us. The plane was made fast to our boat. Three F.B.I. men listened to our story. With Joe and me as guides, the men went ashore and arrested the German spies. At ten-thirty the craft rose like a phantom from the smooth, glassy plain taking with it the biggest catch of my life. BENNIE DAVIS, '52 The Chase IT was a hot summer day. The sky was as cloudless as a clear blue pool. The sun seemed to be everywhere, creeping into the dark, shady spots and making them as hot as the rest of the world. The grass in our yard was burned crisp and brown, having been recently clipped short with a lawn mower. The temperature had sky-rocketed to 900, and to the poor animals it was misery. As l reclined in my much-sought-after hammock stretched beneath the only two trees in our yard, I gazed across the wide expanse of our pasture and wondered how it could still be green in spite of the hot weather. It was a deep emerald green with only a slight fading in color at the tips. It waved on like a painted sea walled in by the fence around it and was broken only by an occasional boulder. There was one huge rock at the west end which outdid all the others. It was gigantic and provided enough shade for at least two cows to lie in. As I dozed in my shady spot, there crept into my daydreams a picture which creeps into every young person's dreams, I am sure, at one time or another if he relishes food at all. My dream's intrusion was a huge wedge of strawberry shortcake, weighted down by juicy red strawberries and lit- erally buried in luscious whipped cream. On top of my dream dish perched a magnificent sweet red strawberry, large and round. My dream had been born as a result of the rock on the west side of the pasture, for it had re- minded me of my many excursions to it to gather the sweet, wild strawber- ries which grew around its base. As a result of association, I had created and gazed upon a dish of strawberry shortcake, too mouthwatering and perfect for words. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed worth the effort to again return to the boulder to pick more of the fruit with The Academy Bell 27 which my mother, with a little persuasion, might be willing to complete a reasonable facsimile of my dream. So, doubtfully, I ventured from my prostrate position in the shade, and having acquired a basket to put the berries in, I set out across the pasture. The cows who occupied it were nowhere to be seen, neither was the big black bull who also was a denizen of the pasture. I call him big and black because to me he was a thunder cloud of ebony muscle, gigantic in size, and he gave the impression that his personality was one of a devil who stalks his prey and corners it for the kill. This was what the bull seemed to me, but everyone else was perfectly brave about him and informed me again and again that he was harmless as a kitten. Not possessing the knowl- edge and courage of the matador, I usually kept my distance from the territories of the bull. However, on this hot day, he was probably smart enough to stay with the cows who were in the woods that bordered the west side of the pasture, where it was cool. When I reached the big rock, I found the berries thick and abundant and the picking was very easy. However, I had still retained my lazy atti- tude, and I soon found myself stretched out in the shade of the rock after picking a short time. The dreamy quiet and the soft, warm air dulled my senses until I resigned myself to sleep. It was a dreamless sleep, almost a stupor, and was of the type that can- not be interrupted too suddenly with good results, because full conscious- ness is very slow in coming. My sleep was disturbed very suddenly by the beating of hoofs nearby and a resounding bellow, and in my dazed state of mind the interruption did not take form very quickly. Finally I realized that the sounds I heard indicated that my enemy, the bull, was nearby and my brain told me I had better take flight. Take flight I did as no one ever took flight before. My legs seemed to be propelled by a hidden force, and I gave the pursuer a fine chase at first. I could hear his thundering hoofs behind me. They seemed not to sound any nearer as we raced on, but nei- ther did they sound farther away. Then I began to get tired, and my legs as well as my lungs were failing me. It seemed I could not go on. My breath was lost completely, the ache in my side was agony, and my legs would not perform their duty any longer. I gave up! I had rather die than continue in this terrible agony. I prayed like a hero for death to come quickly as I threw myself on the ground. I heard the sound of hoofs go by and felt the ground tremble as my killer wheeled to return for the kill. I shut my eyes and hugged the ground in one last desperate plea for life. There was absolute silence. What was he waiting for? Dare I look? Oh, Lord, why didn't he get it over with? Courage was fast returning, and I 28 The Academy Bell gathered enough to raise my head and see what was happening. As I slowly raised myself to see, I felt a rough, wet something sweep across one side of my face. My eyes came to rest on, not the bull, but old Buttercup, the faithful cow who had given me thick cream for many a strawberry shortcake, and who now was gazing upon me as a mother upon her child, with a soft, tender look in her bovine eyes, and who was reaching out her fawning, caressing tongue to me. ALFREDA DAVIS, '53 Mattie and Her Quilt FROM the very first Sunday Mattie appeared in church after moving to Duane, Bertha was jealous of her. Mother always claimed that Bertha envied Mattie her naturally curly hair, her winning smile, and her gift for making friends. Though Mattie had plenty of work to occupy her time at home, with four children and a rangy farmhouse to care for, she entered into the activities of the little town and took her share of the hard labor of putting on a food sale or a church supper whenever she was asked. Her lively spirit, tact, modesty, and willingness to work everlastingly won her friends, and before many months had passed Mattie was selected as head of the church guild, appointed to the school committee, and chosen to sing in the choir. In addition to her home and-community duties, Mattie was an expert with her needle. "It was naturalf, Mother said, "that Bertha should envy Mattie, for all that Mattie was Bertha had always hoped to be." I liked Mattie and remember her still as one of my mother's best friends. She had such a natural, kindly way with her while Bertha, who dropped in at our house, annoyed and upset Mother and me by her gossip. As time passed Bertha came to detest Mattie. Everyone could see that Bertha was determined to find some way to get ahead of Mattie, to triumph over her. That time arrived on the last day of the Cook County Fair. Bertha had talked around the town about the quilt she had made to exhibit. At the further end of the Exhibition Hall hung quilts of varied colors and designs. Among them and the most beautiful of all was Mattie's. Her masterpiece was of log cabin pattern in blue, green, yellow, and pink pas- tel shades, blending beautifully together. Mother and I stood and gazed in awe at the work that was so beautifully put together that even a magnify- ing glass could not reveal the fine, expert needlework, the stitches were so skillfully concealed. The Academy Bell 29 That afternoon we returned to the Exhibition Hall to hear the judges' decisions. Prizes were awarded for the clearest apple jelly, the best pies and cakes, and the finest apples and largest pumpkins. At last came the moment of highest interest-the judging of the quilts. Mother and I edged forward on our chairs eagerly listening for Mattie's name. We were as- tounded to hear the judges announce Bertha as the winner. Mother and I sat for a moment. As we started home, we saw Mattie at the end of the hall slowly and carefully wrapping her quilt. With tear-filled eyes we watched her as she descended the steps of the hall, got into her Ford, and drove away. Two weeks later it was discovered that the decision had been a "fixed one." Bertha was, of course, the perpetrator of it. Her daughter, a very pretty and popular girl, was in love with Edward Matthews, a young se- lectman of the town, who was one of the judges of the contest. Mazzie used all her influence to induce him to put his vote on her mother's quilt. It was his vote that determined the final decision in Bertha's favor. One Saturday morning about a month later, I heard Mother give an ex- clamation of great delight. She called me from the kitchen where I was washing dishes. I went into the living room to find her reading the Herald Recorder. There on the front page was a picture of Mattie standing be- side her quilt. Mother read aloud: "It was an exciting day in Boston at the Better Homes Exhibition Con- test for Mrs. Mattie Griswell. Her log cabin quilt won first place for a prize of SIOOO. Also as an additional award, Mrs. Griswell and her en- tire family are to enjoy a week's vacation in Washington for .pleasure and sight-seeing with all expenses paidf' "There,', said Mother, "that's the most wonderful news I have ever read in my life. I'll clip it out and give it to Bertha when she drops in this afternoon? - JEAN BAUCKMAN, ,53 ' A Day in the Woods THE early morning sun rose upon the forest, resplendent with its glitter- ing garb of frost crystals. A red fox, out late from the night's scavengings, started a drowsy snowshoe rabbit from under a hemlock. Off he went in pursuit, but the agile rabbit was too smart for the tired fox, who soon gave up the chase and resumed his homeward trail. Seeing a reckless squirrel frolicking beside the new silent brook, he stole softly within leaping dis- 30 The Academy Bell tance. The squirrel saw him and with a frightened squeak leaped for safe- ty. The fox was too quick for him and with a brief struggle, one of nature's numerous tragedies was over-tragedies which few know about but which strike fear into the hearts of the smaller animals of the forest. Now, after filling his stomach, Renard decided to explore a little. He trotted swiftly over the crest,of a hill and sneaked down into the hollow be- low. A family of partridge usually bedded down in a cluster of hemlock here, and he had hopes of a partridge dinner that day. Looking around, he did not see them and had almost decided to move on when the very snow in front of him exploded in his face. A very frightened fox scuttled to the safety of the nearest clump of bushes and looked around to see his partridge dinner winging its way to the top of a pine tree. All through the rest of the short winter day he kept playing nature's game of chance, sometimes winning, sometimes losing, until at last, perched on the tip of a rock by his den on the mountainside, he heralded the arrival of the new moon with that unerring instinct which has forced all foxes to bark at the sky during a wintry night. ANN MCKEY, '54 The Snow Storm Daintily at first each delicate flake Slowly settles to the ground. ' Then the Hakes speed up their pace As the winds die down. Swiftly adhering to objects below, The snow falls all the night. Sweeping across the countryside, It covers all in sight. RUTH LEWIS, '53 The Lesson IT was Saturday night and all the gang were going out to the Plaza to a dance. When Dad came home from work, I asked him to let me take the convertible, but when he learned where I was going he said, "That is no place for a boy of your age. You can't go." "But the whole gang is going. I don't want to be the only one left out." "I'm sorry, but I don't think it is the proper place for you, and you can't take the car." The Academy Bell 31 I knew he would never change his mind, but I still wanted to go. I ate my supper and then walked down town. A crowd of the fellows in the drugstore hailed me with, "Hey, Ned, aren't you going out to the Plaza?" I didnit want them to know that my father wou1dn't let me go, so I re- plied nonchalantly, "Oh, I may drive over later this evening." "You'd better come. We're going to have quite a time? Then I remembered. Mom had mentioned at supper that they were go- ing over to the Browns' to play cards later in the evening. "That's only a couple of houses away," I thought, "and they won't be driving. If I go up the street and then cross over they won't ever know I have taken the car." Realizing my plan could easily work, I dashed home, being cautious not to hurry too fast by the Browns' house. When I reached home, I found a note saying where my parents had gone. I rushed upstairs, changed my clothes, got into the car, and drove off. It was quite late, so I began to pick up speed, for I didn't want to miss all the fun. Suddenly I found myself behind a big truck and on a hill, too. I decided to pass it, thinking, 'fOh heck, I've never had an accident yet. I won't this timef, With this thought in mind I swung out to the left. As I came abreast of the truck, a car loomed upon the hill. I tried to cut in quickly, but I couldn't make it in time, and we collided. I had been going so fast that when we clashed, I was thrown clear of the car into the ditch. It was my ill-fortune to fall between two huge rocks, and I was knocked out cold. When I regained consciousness, I was in a hospital bed. My mother and father were standing by me. "What happened?', I asked. "You broke your leg," replied my father. "You will be all right. Don't worry, but you will have to wear a cast extending to your chin for eight weeks." That was all that was ever said about the accident. It was an unbearably hot summer, and the cast made me wretchedly miserable. Mother and Dad waited on me "hand and foot." They got a lawn couch for the car, so they could drive me about with them. They were wonderful to me, getting me anything they thought would make me more comfortable. What created the greatest impression on me was the fact that they never made any reference to my disobedience, to the trouble I had caused them, to the burden of the enormous expenses my selfishness and foolishness had placed on them. They tended me all through that painful summer as though nothing had ever gone wrong. Through their kindness, unselfishness, and patience toward me I learned forever the les- son of fair play. DIANE EASTMAN, '53 32 The Academy Bell The Wreck of the Oakey Alexander IT was the disastrous storm of forty-seven. Not many people remember it, but to me, a green sailor on my second big shipping, it was the most powerful and terribly cruel display of nature I have ever experienced. I was on the Oakey L. Alexander, a collier out of Providence to Portland, Maine, serving as a lookout on the bridge, for the storm had overtaken us before we could make our port. ' A mountainous sea was running. Waves towering twenty feet and more, driven by the screaming wind from out of the driving, howling rain and darkness broke continually over the laboring Oakey. For four hours the ship bucked along her course, heeled under seventy-mile-an-hour gales, plunged deep in a surging mountain of green water, then rose high to the flying spume. At three in the morning the captain ordered all on the bridge to keep watch for the beacon of the Portland lightship. About quarter past we sighted its feeble ilash and corrected our course accordingly, little realiz- ing she had been driven five miles off her position. Shortly we sighted the Two Lights beacon-six short flashes, a pause, and again six short ilashes. We knew that we were off our course and had run into shoal water where the waves had made up much more. I was on the bridge beside Captain Stevens at the time. He ordered a change in our course. There was visibly more force to the wind and waves, and the air outside roared like the stampede of angry cattle. The ship shook and trembled, then heeled even more to the eighty-mile-an-hour gale. It was impossible for anyone to sur- vive out on the slanting and plunging deck, for one moment half the ship would be lifted clear, to be engulfed again in a mountainous sea. Waves the size of the ship itself broke on and over the Oakey, sweeping her en- tire length. Then two mountainous swells surged aboard, pounding the ship and heeling her hard over. For a moment the entire bow ahead of the bridge was lifted from the turbulent sea. The sea broke on the deck house and bridge, spume rained on the ports, and once more the Oakey shook and trembled. Suddenly a horrifying, unbelievable spectacle occurred which threat- ened the ship and the lives of all the crew. With an ominous, thundering roar and screech, one hundred and seventy-tive feet of the bow twisted and broke from the hull of our ship and plunged out of sight. Fortunately the entire crew was in the stern at the moment of this great disaster, for the watch was just being changed. While I was staring, transfixed, the captain called below for a report on leakage, for we all expected the re- The Academy Bell 33 mainder of our ship to plunge under the seething waters with us all trapped on board. The bow had split off just forward of number four bulkhead, and the bulkhead was holding with little leakage. Immediately Captain Stevens ordered reduced speed, and then he ad- dressed the crew. I can still hear his courageous yet solemn voice. "Men, so far we are water-tight, but that bulkhead wonlt hold forever. We can abandon ship and try our luck in the small-boats, or we can head for Crescent Beach, about two miles port of Two Lights Station and there beach her out if she stays up that long." I remember my terror and dread as though it were happening now. Captain Stevens was thoroughly familiar with the waters all along the eastern seaboard. He had a map of the shore, and every shoal was en- graved in his mind. So placing our faith in him, we all assented to his plan. Then began the most anxious moments of my life. Would the bulk- head hold? Would we run on the rocks? Would it be possible to beach a broken ship in such a storm? A million fears assailed me. Captain Stevens ordered the distress signal sounded continually, and with each series of five long blasts of the whistle, I prayed it would penetrate the horrible din and reach the men at Two Lights. By four o'clock we were taking in more water, but were much nearer shore. Then the entire crew believed we would be saved. But as we drew close, we saw not the regular rolling of an angry surf on a sandy beach, but the fury of mountainous breakers and swirling white, grey foam and flying spray on a jagged, rocky, barren shore. With water gaining in the hold, we cruised parallel to the shore un- til Captain Stevens sighted a slick among the breakers. Sounding the dis- tress signal for the last time, Captain Stevens brought the foundering Oakey about and headed her in. All hands were called to the bridge, and steam pressure was released. We all prayed as the twenty-foot surf swept us swiftly toward the ledge. A thundering wave took us in its grasp and swept us to safety. The sound of rending metal and bursting bulkheads rose from below, as the fangs of the ledge tore at her bilge. The Oakey listed hard to starboard, and I could feel her settling under me. More seas broke on us, sliding us higher up on the ledge, but she still pitched to the pound of the surf, and we feared she would swing broadside and capsize, but she was driven on fast and sound in her last berth, settled in about fif- teen feet of water about one hundred yards off shore. Twenty minutes after our brave captain's skillful beaching, the rescue crew from Two Lights appeared on top of the cliff, and in a moment the lyle gun was fired, and the breeches buoy was hauled aboard. Captain Stevens had led us all to safety without the loss of a single life. 34 The Academy Bell Undoubtedly there have been others who have accomplished deeds at sea as heroic as that of Captain Stevens. But I shall always remember the way he shouldered the responsibility for the lives of his crew and, with miraculous skill, guided us safely ashore. I shall always remember and ad- mire his modesty in refusing all publicity and tribute. JOHN BELL, '53 The Snow Storm It was early in the morning, When I woke and saw the snow. I The snow was falling fast, And the wind began to blow. I pulled the covers o'er my head, And curled up into a ball. As into slumberland I crept, Someone raced down the hall. "We're maroonedg it snowed all night!" They yelled from door to door. And then a sleepy teacheris voice: "Of this we'll have no more." 'Tm sorry for the rumpus made, I really couldn't help it. Look out the window over here And see what made me yell it." I dragged myself from out my bed, In blanket wrapped from toe to head. As to the door I made my way, Someone yelled, "No school today!" Kids screamed and yelled with great delight And danced around from mom till night. NANCY TAYLOR, '53 The Hit THE bright August sun poured down upon the Springfield Baseball Park. It was just another baseball game to most of the fans, but to Jack Robb, rightfielder for the Springfield Cubs, it was more than another ball game. The Academy Bell 35 To him it meant his future-everything, for in the stands today was Bruce Dudley, a baseball scout for the parent Chicago Cubs. .lack knew he had to make good in this game, for another year would be too late. He had a wife to support now, and with the baby coming in December he had to have the extra thousand dollars a year that a berth in the majors would provide. The game with the Syracuse Reds settled down to a tight pitchers' duel. The Cubs scored once in the third on a single by Jack, a walk, and an er- ror by the Reds' new and inexperienced shortstop. The Syracuse club countered with one in the seventh on a round trip clout by Steve Long, their powerful third sacker. The home half of the ninth was coming up, the score tied. Jack, thus far, had had no spectacular chances in the field, only a couple of routine fly balls which he had handled easily. At bat, other than that run-produc- ing single, he had gone down on strikes and had grounded sharply to third. He knew now he must prove he was a better hitter than this, for the Cubs were looking for a hard-hitting outfielder to replace Jimmy Demart, popu- lar Cub star for many years, who was retiring at the end of the season. He was due up first this inning. As he stepped into the batter's box, he realized it was now or never. The first pitch broke outside. The second was also wide. Jack got set for the next pitch as the pitcher wound up, watching carefully as the ball broke in toward the plate. He stepped forward and swung with all the strength in his powerful shoulders and arms. He felt the tingling shock of ball meeting bat solidly. As he looked up and saw the ball soaring high over the left field fence, a thrill of excitement swept over him, for he knew now that he had won the berth in the majors. WILLIAM TRUE, '52 It's Good to be Home "BERT Johnson, aren't you ever going to get out of that chair?" "Wal, Hannah, I'm a-iixin, to," and Bert settled deeper into the com- fortable recess of his rocking chair and gazed contentedly over his clut- tered front lawn. Hannah sighed resignedly, "He's been a-fixin' to for the past ten years," and with a determined air, she attacked the dirty dishes in the sink, made the beds, and hurried into the garden to weed the onion patch. She pulled the weeds savagely, thinking of Bert with each tug. The weeding finished, 36 The Academy Bell she then fed the hens and gathered the eggs. It was then time to start dinner Hurrying to the porch, she walked around Bert, who was placidly smoking his pipe and talking to his dog Shep. He looked up and said ami- ably, "Sure is a nice day." "He certainly has time to enjoy it," Hannah thought, as she cooked dinner. After gorging on his wife's good cooking, Bert strolled back to his chair with his Hayesville Gazette and digested the news of the nation as seen by the editor, Cyrus Jones. His neighbor Zeke dropped by, and the two had a heated discussion on the approaching presidential election. Zeke was all for MacArthur while Bert was an avid Taft supporter. In the midst of the political discussion, Hannah appeared, beneath the weight of a basket of washing. "Mighty line wife you got there, Bertf' "Yup, Zeke, Hannah is one in a million? This was Hannah's life. Gardening, hens, chickens, washing, canning, and cleaning day after day. One Saturday morning, as she was feeding the pigs, Hannah gave up. She was all through! f'I'm goin' to my folks, Bert, and you can shift for yourself!" Bert stared in amazement, as Hannah sailed down the road, her old felt hat bobbing astride her braids and her old straw suitcase tied firmly with a rope. Bewildered, Bert turned to Shep for consolement, "How will we manage without Hannah?" For two weeks Bert dined on soup, beans, and various other canned goods. He was utterly helpless-the house was a mess, the nests overflowed with eggs, weeds choked the garden, and Bert drew his belt a notch tight- er day by day. Meanwhile Hannah was miserable. Her sister nagged at her constantly, "I told you Bert was lazy. You never should've married himf' At least, Hannah thought, it's peaceful and quiet at home. So one sunny morning Hannah returned. Bert was still sitting in his chair as she had left him, but as he saw her approaching, he walked quick- ly down the road to greet her. Shep ran around in circles, barking his welcome. Hannah entered the house-the bed was unmade, dust was inches thick, the sink was stacked with dirty dishes, and Bert's soiled clothing adorned the furniture, Hannah removed her hat, rolled up her sleeves, and delved into the stack of dishes. "Wal," she said, "Bert will never change, but my! it shore is good to be home!'i ELAINE ANDERSON, '52 The Academy Bell 37 When Fryeburg Vanished! A wall about the countryside, a wall of hoary white, A fortress binds the little town, a flaky show of might. An awful plight, the mood defeatg the cry, "What shall we do?" All this made up the memorable day of the storm of '52. The open walks, the broad highways, are things of distant past. We saw them in September, but they were not to last. They're in another world today, a world that sank below- That life we lived, those walks we walked-beneath this pile of snow. We've worked all day, the sun has set, the drifted roads are past. The prediction: snow tomorrow-Oh, I do so hope I last To see this end, to sit around with nothing else to do But think and talk of all the snow in the storm of '52. ROBERT CHADBOURNE, '52 .. ....

The twilight concerts are under the direc- tion of Mr. Blaich who plays the recordings for us. Mr. Blaich, before playing a record, gives us an outline of the music and its composer, and by the end of the year he has made available to us much valuable infor- mation in regard to the music which, though old, is still popular today. The students attending these twilight concerts greatly enjoy them, and they will remember them for years to come. GORDON PAGE, '54 Senior Play-1952 ON December 20, 1951, the K. of P. Hall was once again filled to capacity for the senior drama. "The Ghost Train," a mystery which kept the audi- ence either full of suspense or in gales of laughter, was this year's pres- entation. As the play opened, six people were stranded in a small railway station near Rockland, Maine. The nearest hotel was several miles away, and the station master urged them to go to it because he had no intention of remaining there with them. Upon asking him why, they found that at 12 o'clock that night a train would come roaring by, bringing death to any- one who looked upon it. The people decided to remain, however, and at midnight the train screamed by the station. Through the clever work of the detective who previously had seemed such a silly fellow, they found that the old legend of the phantom train had been used by smugglers to help carry on their work. The cast of characters as they appeared is: The Academy Bell 41 Mention should be made of John LaCasce and Nancy Stearns who had very difficult parts which they did extremely well. Also the excellent act- ing of Leita Fuller and Glenice Harmon made the play much more re- alistic. The manner in which the characters exempliiied their parts is direct proof of the untiring efforts displayed by Mrs. Heartz in making this play a success. Richard Winthrop ....l.,.,....,......,.l....

DIANE EASTMAN, '53 Glee Club THE Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs meet once a week under the competent direction of Mr. Frank Petillo, through whose patient cooperation the glee club has attained success in its public concerts. The high point of last year's season was the "Hallelujah Chorus" di- rected by Mr. Petillo and sung by the glee club at the Fryeburg Spring Concert. When Christmas Vespers were held in the Congregational Church last fall, the glee club played a larger part in the program. In place of a Christ- mas play a nativity pageant was given with music by the entire glee club. Soloists were Sally Reynolds and Christa Brown. A special chorus from the glee club sang with the Eastern Slopes Chorus of Conway and North Conway in their Christmas concerts this year. The special chorus also presented music for the Fryeburg Women's Club. 42 The Academy Bell Mr. Petillo is now preparing us for this year's spring concerts which we hope will be even more successful than those of last year. MAYNARD SEELYE, '52 Joint Christmas Concerts IN order to aid the Eastern Slopes Chorus in presenting their two Christ- mas concerts, Mr. Petillo selected a group of boys and girls from the glee club at Fryeburg Academy. At first we rehearsed alone, and then, when we were more familiar with the songs, we rehearsed with the Eastern Slopes Chorus at North Conway every Friday evening. Although great emphasis was placed on diligent and careful rehearsing, our rehearsals were also social, and laughter was always at hand. Our concerts were scheduled for the sixteenth and seventeenth of De- cember. The first concert was held in the Congregational Church at Con- way, the second, at the North Conway Congregational Church. The selections that we sang were as follows: "Silent Night" ..,....,..,,.,.,,.,......,....,...... ......................., G ruber 'LShepherds! Shake Off Your Drowsy Sleepw ....

DARLA JEWETT, '54 The Academy Bell 43 Annual Concert AFTER many months of individual rehearsals, chorus groups from Gould, Bridgton, and Fryeburg Academies combined to present three separate concerts in the following order: at Gould Academy, April 293 at Bridg- ton Academy, May 2, and Fryeburg Academy, May 6, 1951. The choruses consisted of small groups chosen from the Glee Clubs. Two of the selec- tions most enjoyed by the choir and by the audience were "Sanctus" by Gounod and the novelty tune "Dry Bones." Bridgton Academy won ac- claim with its fine baritone, Robert Nelson, who sang "Agnus Dei" and "Yours Is My Heart Alonef' Fryeburg was well represented by Donald Coe's and Albert Gilpatrick's performance of the "Sonatina for Piano and Violin." Of course everyone enjoyed the Fryeburg Academy Boys' Sex- tet. They added a very bright note to the concert when they sang. But Fryeburg is proudest of the entire Fryeburg Academy Glee Club for its superb presentation of the famous "Hallelujah Choruslv from the Mes- siah by Handel.

They had exactly two minutes in which to reach the gymnasium. Arriving at the gym they met Mrs. Feeley of Lewiston, Maine, who was to give them ballroom lessons. As soon as the music started, everyone be- gan keeping time to it. The instructor demonstrated the basic steps of a waltz. Until this time the entire class had thought it could dance, but now this opinion was changed. At the end of the first period of dancing the freshmen were just about ready to give up, but for the next few days the lessons were continued. When the night of the dance finally arrived, the freshmen took their places on the floor as if they had been dancing as long as the upperclass- men. Success at last! The class of '55 wishes to express its thanks for the helpful instruction it received and hopes the next class will have the same opportunity. EUNICE RILEY, '55 ill Student Council. 123 Varsity Basketball. Q33 National Honor Society. 48 The Academy Bell Freshman Initiation BECAUSE of the large class which entered F. A. this year, the freshman initiation was not so bad as usual. There was to be no freshman social, news which we were very glad to hear. The first three or four days we were not bothered too much, but finally after we got to know our way around we were "invited" to the assembly hall. There we were told what we would have to do. We were given green caps to wear outside of school to let everyone know that we were green- horns. We were also given name tags to wear so that we would not get mixed up with the upperclassmen. Everything went along O.K. for a few days, and some of us thought that this was all there would be to it. Then one morning when we came to school, we saw a notice on the bulletin board that read something like this: "All freshman boys wear neckties for the next three days. All fresh- man girls wear no make-up of any kind. All freshmen line up for three days at the main door and bow to upperclassmen as they march in." We looked funnier than ever then, especially the boys who had their neckties on over tee-shirts. When one of the students got caught without his name tag, he had to pick up all the paper in Room 5 after school. When some- one asked him how he liked it, he said, "I think that they emptied every wastebasket in school on that floor? There were only one or two others who got caught. After about four weeks the initiation was ended with a square dance. Even though we were glad it was over at the time, I think most of us look back on it now as a lot of fun. PAUL WATSON, '55 Football Dance NOVEMBER brought the return of the annual Football Dance, replaced last year by the Christmas Dance. A group of eager A. A. girls, along with live senior boys, decorated the gym with colorful footballs, hockey sticks, track shoes, and megaphones, each bearing the name of a player. Every- one enjoyed dancing to the music of Ray Horne's orchestra. Judged by attendance and festive spirit, the Football Dance was a successful affair ending much too soon. ALLISON BAILEY, '53 The Academy Bell 49 Sadie Hawkins-1952 IF you had dropped in at Fryeburg Academy on the dates January 31 and February 1, you would have seen that the school routine was all off. Why? Sadie Hawkins was here again! At 2:00 Thursday afternoon we all breathed a sigh of relief knowing we were being dismissed from the seventh period, and all trooped to the gym to see our J. V. basketball girls victors over Casco and the J. V. boys lose to Casco. In the evening we all enjoyed a buffet supper served in the Alumni House and then danced to recorded music on the skating rink. At 8:00 we all went back to the gym to see our varsity players vs. Northeastern. Our team made an excellent showing in losing by only a few points. At noon Friday a bus full of skiers "tooted" off to Cranmore to spend the aftemoon while the skaters enjoyed music on the rink. At last the night of the Coronation Ball had arrived, in the middle of the evening everyone stopped dancing to see Helga Osgood crowned car- nival queen with her attendants: Evelyn Barnes, Merilyn Norton, Leita Fuller, and Glenice Harmon. After "Mrf' had crowned Helga, she and her escort led the Grand March and everyone danced away the remaining evening hours. Thus we take with us memories of another eventful and successful Sadie Hawkins. ALICE BREEN, '53 Assemblies THE school year of '51 and '52 has brought a great variety of assemblies. I would like to mention a few. The year began with a concert by the three Petillos: Frank, Alfred, and Ralph. This family is very talented, and we feel exceedingly fortunate to have Mr. Petillo as our music director. Three solos were the favorites: "The Hot Canary," played by Ralph, on the violin, "The Swan," by Al- fred, on the viola, and the ever-popular "Rhapsody in Blue,', performed by Mr. Petillo on the piano. We have had two dramatic assemblies. The first was Chrystine Cole- man in her one-woman portrayal of "Life with Father." Her ability to mimic and to change her voice and facial expressions kept the room rock- ing with laughter. The second production was the famous 'tOur Ameri- can Cousin," presented by the Conservatory Players. They gave two acts ill Varsity Basketball Girls Q23 Girls' Athletic Council 133 J. V. Basketball The Academy Bell 51 from back stage and two acts on stage as it was enacted on April 14, 1865, in Ford Theater, Washington, D. C., the night that President Lincoln was assassinated. One of our most recent assemblies was a surprise. Mr. Stanley Perham, the well-known mineralogist from West Paris, talked to us on the great mineral wealth of New England. With the help of his stone cutter, Mr. Bean, Mr. Perham displayed beryl, topaz, amethyst, and quartz-smoky, rose, and clear white-while stone cutting was demonstrated. We have enjoyed these assemblies and we have increased our cultural wealth through them. These assemblies have been as much a part of our school days as our classes, and we attend them with the idea of not only enjoying but learning. NANCY STEARNS, '52 Y-Teens President EVELYN BARNES Vice-President HELGA OSGOOD Secretary PEGGY ANN MCDANIELS Treasurer MARILYN NORTON Advisor Miss PRISCILLA HIGGINS TI-IE Y-Teen group, composed of girls from each of the classes in school, meets every other Monday. In the past after the business meeting, pro- grams or entertainment have been furnished frequently by outside talent. This year most of our programs have been provided by those within the group. As our first meeting was not a regular business meeting, We had a uget acquainted" party for the new women teachers and the new girls. A program consisting of a shadow skit on good health, under the di- rection of President Evelyn Barnes, was presented by members of the group at one of our October meetings. We also enjoyed musical selections played by other members. Our advisor, Miss Higgins, showed interesting and helpful film strips on the subject of boy and girl relationships. More recently Mr. Blaich spoke to us on the subject of marriage. Mrs. Eliopoulos was the guest of the group at our first November meet- ing. She spoke about "World Fellowship," explaining to us the importance and need for it. Prior to the Christmas season, "Chocolates for Christmas" were sent L6 W We Sig A The Academy Bell 53 to two different Y-Teen groups in Germany. The annual Christmas party for the girls of the first four grades of the Fryeburg Grammar School was fun for all. A program of games, carols, and refreshments was enjoyed around the Christmas tree. Our advisor, Miss Higgins, President Evelyn Bames, and delegate Alice Breen gave an interesting report on their trip to the Mid-Winter Y-Teen Conference in Augusta. They brought many suggestions of activities that have been successfully tried by other groups and that might be of interest to us. A skit, "Low Bridge," was presented by members of the group at a later meeting. Those who took part were Mary Lorton, Jean Bauckman, Ann McKey, and Molly Mansur, with the help of their committee chairman, Alice Perreault. Working with the Girls' Athletic Council, we helped to sponsor another successful Hawkins Heyday. In reviewing the events of our work and play as a group, we have had a successful and happy year. Good luck to the group of '53! PEGGY ANN MCDANIELS, '52 Home Economics Activities "We sing the praises to 'Home EC., so dear, And the joys it has brought us throughout the year." HEY, girls, remember the Penny Carnival and the jolly time we had yelling, "Get your ice cold drinks, ice cream, hot coffee and hot dogs here." It was so much fun to imitate the side show barkers at the fair. We really sold all our products, too! On a more serious note we recall our Mother and Daughter banquet, served to the junior and senior f'Home Ee." girls and their mothers by the sophomore "Home Ec.'ers." What a spring feeling was in the air with all the fiower decorations and the gay pastel colors! We'll never forget the Fashion Show afterwards where, for our mothers, we modeled our own creations made in sewing class. The freshman Science of Living girls have fun, too. They discuss their problems and those of school. One of the classroom events was the visit of a beautician, Mrs. Barker, who told the girls how to care for their hair. The junior and senior girls, while studying the preservation of food, made a trip to see the International Harvester freezers here in Fryeburg, 54 The Academy Bell At that time Miss Jean Collins, a student teacher, was here at school, and she accompanied us on a visit to the North Conway meat locker where we learned many facts about meat. At Christmas time we made attractive boxes of homemade candy to take home. We were really proud when we saw how fast our families de- voured the fudge, fondant, and other varieties of candy. Also at Christmas the freshman girls had fun wrapping very pretty Christmas gifts and mak- ing Christmas ornaments. They learned some new tricks and certainly made some beautiful things. Some of the other things included in our activities are: the Thanksgiv- ing and Christmas teas, feeding our opponents in hockey, making sand- wiches for the football and basketball players, Honor Society supper, F. F. A. banquetgserving hot lunches to the students, and many others. All those in favor of future years in "Home Ee." as happy as this one was, say "Aye!" ALFREDA DAVIS, '53 Future Homemakers of America WE have a new association at Fryeburg now. Our Home Economics de- partment has started a Future Homemakers of America organization. Mrs. Louise Fettinger, an itinerant teacher-trainer from the State Depart- ment of Education, gave us advice and aroused our enthusiasm for this club. The purposes of F. H. A. are: 1. To promote a growing appreciation of the joys and satisfactions of homemaking. 2. To emphasize the importance of worthy home membership. 3. To encourage democracy in home and community life. 4. To work for good home and family life for all. 5. To promote international good will. 6. To foster the development of creative leadership in home and community life. 7. To provide wholesome .individual and group recreation. 8. To further interest in home economics. The emblem of the F. H.

Tinker National Honor Society President Omcers JOHN LACASCE Vice-President PETER HATHAWAY Secretary NANCY STEARNS Treasurer EVELYN BARNES THE B. W. Tinker Chapter, 3010, is part of the National Honor Society, a society based on scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The membership consists of juniors, seniors, and graduates only. Our initia- tion takes place twice a year, once in February and once in June. At the initiation in February, 1952, eight new members were inducted, making a total of seventeen. The following students are members: John LaCasce, Peter Hathaway, Nancy Stearns, Evelyn Barnes, Phyllis Chapman, Bennie Davis, Maynard Seelye, Peggy Ann McDaniels, Glenice Harmon, Fred Wenzel, Jean Bauckman, Marilyn McAllister, Shirley Greene, David Bowles, Frank Kinnelly, Mary Lorton, and Diane Eastman. We meet on the first and third weeks of the month. Our projects con- sist of being in charge of the school publicity, and preparing a scrapbook which contains newspaper clippings of school activities, activities of the students, and activities of the alumni and teachers. We have prepared a service list of the Academy alumni who are in the armed forces. This year we are having two plays, "Jezebel," by John LaCasce, and "Let's Make Up? These plays are for the purpose of raising money to buy the B. W. Tinker freshman scholarship medals, which are awarded at Commence- ment to the highest ranking boy and girl in the freshman class. During this year our varied program has been very interesting to the members. Our speakers have been Mr. Blaich, Mr. Higgins, and Mr. Phil- lips. In addition we have had several films on etiquette. In January we had our annual Christmas banquet in the Home Eco- The Academy Bell 59 nomics Room put on by the Future Homemakers of America under the direction of Mrs. Stella Gray. This banquet is given us as a Christmas gift by Mr. Tinker for whom the Chapter is named. Our year closes with a banquet in June for the members, faculty ad- visor, Mrs. Heartz, the faculty council and their wives and husbands. NANCY STEARNS, '52 Student Council President HELGA OSGOOD Vice-President WILLIAM TEXIDO Secretary JOLINE EDWARDS Advisors MRS. WELLS and MR. HIGGINS MEMBERS of the Student Council are elected yearly by popular vote of the students. The members serving on the Council represent the classes, busses, town, dormitories, and new students. The Student Council has continued the f'Big Brother and Sisterv pro- gram, with the purpose of orienting the freshmen and new students. This year instead of the annual Freshman Social we had a four-week initiation period climaxed by a square dance. We are now in the process of plan- ning the Talent Show for the third consecutive year. The Council headed a Curtis Drive in the fall, with the purpose of raising money for an elec- tric scoreboard which has since been installed and is now in use in the Gibson Gymnasium. , The Student Council carries out many other activities such as selecting the school assembly program for the following year and sponsoring the March of Dimes and Heart Disease drives. Four delegates, Helga Osgood, William True, Diane Eastman, and William Texido, were sent to attend the State Student Council meeting at Portland to acquire new knowledge and ideas to better the Council.

JOLINE EDWARDS, '53 60 The Academy Bell The Annual Penny Carnival ONCE again we had our Penny Carnival in the Gibson Gym. We all had a merry time, everyone strolled around the gym participating in the various amusements. Throughout the gym the voice of Peter Clark was heard as the auction- eer. Many of us bid on the pandas and baby dolls which Peter auctioned. As we patronized the various booths, we bought hot dogs, soda, pop- corn, we pitched pennies for prizes, we could guess the mystery voice of the National Honor Society's booth. Cheers came from the boxing and wrestling show as another knockdown was scored by a hopeful boxer. Before we knew it, closing time had come and the crowd trekked out of the gym. Some were disappointed at not winning a prize, some were hap- py, but we all had a good time. ROGER LEWIS, 953 Graduation Exercises TOWARD the end of May and the beginning of June, the air is filled with excitement, for this is the commencement season. Around the campus, most of the students can be found memorizing the parts they are to play in the ceremonies. The exercises open with the prize speaking contest. Last spring the contest was held on June 11 in the Congregational Church. The prize winners were Lemmie Coombs and Diane Eastman who won first prize, and Priscilla Draper who received honorable mention. The Congregational Church was also the scene of the Baccalaureate Service which was held the following day with the Rev. Alexander Win- ston of the First Parish Church of Portland as speaker. On Monday, June 13, the annual Class Day was held on the Academy lawn. Participating were Ora Clark, the senior class president, Richard Libby, class chaplain, and Carolyn Gerry, class historian. The prophecy was given by Jennie Davis and Philip Kenerson, and the will by John B. Douglas. Jean Eastman presented the gifts to the boys, and Frank Cofsky gave the girls their gifts. Tuesday, June 14, was the day of the actual graduation ceremony. Last year Communism was the main topic of the speeches. The com- mencement speakers were Donald Hale, Anne Tebbitt, Owen Palmer, Ann Brown, and George Fernald. After the speeches Mr. LaCasce award- ed the prizes and Mr. Hugh Hastings of the Board of Trustees presented the diplomas. Another group of students had now become alumni of Frye- burg Academy' BLYNN GARNETT, ,52 The Academy Bell 61 Prizes and Awards EVERY year on Graduation Day numerous prizes and awards are pre- sented to the most deserving students.

GRAY Manager: ROBERT CHADBOURNE THE 1951 baseball season was a year of considerable rebuilding and was fairly successful in view of the number of freshmen and sophomores which made up the squad. Of the starting nine there were only three seniors to provide the experience to the team. Under the patient tutoring of Coach Gray, the boys showed considerable individual improvement, and with a year's experience behind them the boys should show the Fryeburg fans a snappy brand of ball another year. The bulk of the offense was shared by Mac Burnell, Al Stearns, and Jimmy Hill. Perley Thompson carried the greater part of the pitching duties, with Waine Bartlett and Billy True showing great improvement. The two best showings were made in defeat- ing Gould Academy 12-6 and Holderness 13-73 Holderness had to this point a seven-game winning streak.

GRIERSON Manager: BENNIE S. DAVIS THE Junior Varsity baseball squad of 1951 met with great success. Losing their initial game at the hands of Bridgton High on the neighboring field, the freshmen and sophomores came along fast under the advice and "know-how" of "Pop" Grierson and the team began to move. They were undefeated over the rest of the seven-game slate. "Gibby" Delisle carried the bulk of the pitching duties with big righthander ".Tiny', Pitman help- ing out. Fred Wenzel and Jerry Ward were standouts afield. The showing made by the J.V.'s this year will be good news for the varsity in another year. THE SQUAD 3b.-F. Wenzel s.s.-P. Kenerson 1b.-G.

SAvoIA, CLIFFORD L. GRAY Manager: DAVID R. BowLEs THE 1951 football season was a year of considerable rebuilding and a great deal of team spirit was displayed in fighting to correct the mistakes that are bound to occur in an inexperienced team. Along with many new faces, a new coach, Mr. Savoia, appeared as a result of Mr. Wells' being recalled to the service. Mr. Gray was again on hand as line coach. The vet- erans, Al Stearns, Jim LaCasce, Tiny Pitman, John Freiday, Don Quincy, and Pete Hastings showed themselves as the leaders and balance of the squad early in the season. The first game of the season was a hard fought battle with Bridgton High on the neighboring Bridgton Field. The boys worked hard but fell on the short end of a 7-6 count as a result of two last quarter penalties. We played the next two games with teams which were far out of our class. We took a drubbing from both, falling on the short end to Brewster 42-0 and Norway 34-0. Brewster proved a double loss as veteran left end John Freiday returned to Fryeburg with a virus infection which ended his play- ing for the season, and veteran right wing Don Quincy suffered a back in- jury which side-lined him for the year. After the Norway game the Fryeburg eleven caught fire and on the fol- lowing Saturday rolled past Kents Hill with a 20-0 victory. To prove this was not luck, the team continued to move and on the following week end emerged on the long end of a 26-0 score over the Hebron Reserves. On Novmber 10 we played our final game against our traditional foe, Gould Academy. It was in this game that the team to a man gave all that it possessed only to lose 26-19 despite a thrilling fourth quarter. Much credit is due Coach Savoia for an excellent job of instruction in his Hrst year of coaching. Next year will see a great many of the boys re- turning. With the experience already present in many of these cases, Coach Savoia should field an improved team in the fall of '52, D at .i ... .L FOOTBALL Fuoxfr Row, left to r1'gfl11.' Paul Davis.

HEARTZ UNDER the patient tutoring of Coach Heartz Fryeburg Academy watched a team composed of freshmen and sophomores work and train to produce a strong group of competent runners. The team concluded the season with an even split of their four-meet schedule. A sweep of the two-meet series with Bridgton Academy provided the win column while the losses were to Gould and Hebron Academies. A freshman discovery, Rayfield Payne, proved most consistent by finishing first in three of the four meets. The squad was composed of Rayfield Payne, Louis Drudi, Wayne Har- mon, Albert Gilpatrick, Maynard Seelye, Francis Wacker, Richard Bone, and Walda Woodward. The schedule: Bridgton 40 Fryeburg I9 Hebron 40 40 Gould 20 43 Bridgton 32 23 ROBERT CHADBOURNE, '52 Track THE 1951 track team, though unsuccessful in winning any meets, never- theless had several fine track men in its line-up. Mike Collins took first place in the shot and discus throwing in every meet he entered, and Don Brown did almost as well in the broad jump and the 440-yard dash. Don Hale and Al Cotton were also extremely helpful, Hale having copped first place in the state meet and Cotton, an all-round man, taking many of those valuable second and third places during the season. In the first meet of the season, a triangular event with Rumford and Mexico, Fryeburg placed second behind Rumford. In the second meet, this time with Hebron and Kents Hill, Fryeburg came in last. The next meet, our most successful of the season, was with Tilton, Brewster, and New Hampton. Fryeburg placed second behind a powerful Tilton team. Strong Gould and Rumford teams forced us to take third place in the county meet, and in the state meet, Hale and Brown combined to earn ll points for Fryeburg. DONALD Coe, '53 70 The Academy Bell Skiing THE ski activities this year centered around the Ski Club and its officers: Alice Breen and John LaCasce, co-presidents, Allison Bailey, secretary, Phyllis Chapman, treasurerg and Miss Higgins, the advisor. With the aid of instructors Peter Bowie, Alice Breen, David Bowles, and John LaCasce, classes were held each afternoon at Starks Hill. Several Saturday ski trips to Mount Pleasant were taken, as part of the Sadie Hawkins activities, a trip was taken to Cranmore Mountain, and a week-end trip for the most loyal members is being planned for March 1-2. We have been very fortunate this year in having excellent snow condi- tions, and we have used them to full advantage. JOHN LACASCE, '52 Varsity Basketball Coach: CHARLES A. CoTToN Manager: ALBERT Hp STEARNS THIS year the Varsity compiled a record of two wins and eleven losses. The team had none of the expected holdovers from last year and was once again forced to start from scratch. The Varsity was composed mostly of juniors which is a good sign for the future. As the season progressed, the boys improved rapidly in shooting and ball handling. With practically the same team returning next year our win column should increase despite our stiff competition. The 1951-1952 season went as follows: F ryeburg Opponent 26 Norway 62 27 St. Francis 70 34 Northeastern 5 2 22 Bowdoin Frosh 61 53 New Hampton J.

Under a new coach, Joseph Savoia, these boys showed a great deal of improvement toward the latter part of the season. The J. V. schedule was as follows: F ryeburg J. V.'s Opponent 35 Bridgton High J.

"I heard your varsity was undefeated except for that game with Deering at the Waynllete Play Day. I was disappointed when you didn't come out on top after winning that hard-fought game with Sanford, whom everyone expected to be the victors." Six members from the team graduated, but with the experience and ability of the remaining players, we are looking forward to another suc- cessful season.

Although we lost the game, the team gained valuable experience in playing together for the first time. By the end of the season we had a record of four wins and six losses, a good record for an inexperienced team. The junior varsity girls had a fair season, with a record of four wins and three losses. The team bowed to Sanford 41-20 in its first game, but it recovered its spirit and had a victorious season. All in all, both teams enjoyed the entire season. VARSITY LINE-UP Forwards: H. Osgood, D.

Under the excellent direc- tion of Coach Killman and Coach LaCasce, the girls were drilled every aftemoon. As a result, the varsity was undefeated and the junior varsity showed great improvement. The season opened with the annual Play Day at Deering High School. Approximately thirty girls, both varsity and junior varsity, made the trip. The Fryeburg girls came home with three ties and one loss. The teams they played were Deering, Cony, South Portland, and Waynllete. The first scheduled game which took place at Kents Hill resulted in a 4-0 victory for the Fryeburg varsity and a 5-0 defeat for the junior var- sity. The next game was at Waynflete where the Fryeburg varsity was vic- torious in a 3-2 win and the junior varsity, in a very well-played game, tied 0-0. The first home game was played with Brewster Academy and Fryeburg won 4-0. The games with Berlin were both in Fryeburg's favor with a score of 7-0 for the varsity and 5-0 for the junior varsity.

The squad elected Leita Fuller and Helga Osgood as co-captains. The cheerleaders, in their uniforms of blue skirts and white sweaters, have done much to keep up the spirit in sports at Fryeburg Academy.
