I would like to give you one quotation from the Bible for your consideration: "He hath shewed thee, O man, what is goodg and what doth God re- quire of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

STRONG Hi.lll7l',l' B.A. Bates College Service T0 serve is to find self satisfaction. Those who have achieved such happi- ness and peace of mind have given more than their share to benefit others. There are many opportunities for us at Fryeburg Academy to give gen- erously of ourselves each day. The school abounds in activities to which we can willingly serve beyond that which is required. All sports, Y-Teen organization, student council, F. H. A., F. F. A., glee club, the publica- tion of THE BELL, and classroom work provide a real challenge to work co- operatively and unselfishly. The interest developed in a subject should be pursued not for a grade, but for the abiding benefit each student derives from the intellectual experience. A genuine desire to serve should be expressed in every task we under- take in our summer jobs, in our relations with others, in our academic life, and in our recreation. The true meaning of service is clearly and beautifully expressed in the words of Harry Emerson F osdick, who said, "When this deep-seated urge in human nature, highly used, achieves its consummate expression, it pro- duces the world's saviorsf' Christ gave his life in service to the world. Only the lowest of mankind is he who singularly seeks his selfish ends.

V 'gig Poverty in Egypt Pascal Woldemariam is a native of Ethiopia, but spent most of his life in Egypt studying at a Jesuit school, where he learned of the agricultural course at Frye- bury Academy. He entered this school as a senior in the fall of 1952. The fol- lowing essay presents actual experiences. EGYPT is the country I know best, for it is there I passed nearly half of my life-Cten yearsl. It is there where I learned the great difference between the life of the rich and the life of the poor. In Egypt also I witnessed a riot instigated by the communists. Of these two events I write. During my long stay in Egypt I really learned the actual meaning of the word poor. I visited the richest Pasha as I visited the poorest laborer. In this country a middle class does not exist. There are only the fabulously rich and the downtrodden poor. Only the wealthy and the small group of intellectuals live normally. Out of the 22,000,000 Egyptians there are ex- actly one hundred families who have an extremely luxurious life, and among these families are the royal family and the Pashas. In the ancient time Pasha was a title of nobility, but in modern times it became in Egypt a title of wealth and of great land owner. The title, Pasha, could only be conferred by the king himself. The smallest fortunes pos- sessed by the Pasha were more than one million dollars. One of these great wealthy men had visited Ethiopia and had been re- ceived as guest by our Emperor himself. Consequently as a courteous ges- ture, he invited for dinner on a Sunday all Ethiopian students at Cairo. I accepted the invitation for I was eager to know the life of these rich men. We, of course, had a grand feast. After the dinner we went to the draw- 34 THE ACADEMY BELL ing room, and, as it was a bit cold, I stood by the fire talking with our host. Suddenly in the midst of the conversation, he took a cigar to smoke, but he could not find a match. I advanced towards him with a lighter, but he drew from his pocket a twenty pound note, put it in the fire, and with it lit his cigar. It would be impossible to believe that these rich men possessed each one more than six big and modern buildings in the center of the city and 40,000 acres of lands. All the factories and all the newspapers were in their hands. Each Pasha owned two or three villas, travelled in privately owned planes, owned at least ten automobiles, and had millions of dollars in the bank. I went each year with my teachers and my classmates to the smallest and poorest village of Egypt to spend my Christmas vacation. Actually we went to take food, drink, medicines, and books, copy books, pencils for the grownups and children of the village. No one could believe what I saw with my own eyes. All these farmers living in those villages were being ex- ploited by Pashas for whom they slaved. They were paid eighteen cents per day for working more than sixteen hours. Most of them used to sleep with- out eating. It was amazing to me that an Egyptian farmer could feed his family of four wives and sixteen children. Their dinner was a piece of bread with a plate of beans for more than sixteen persons. The farmer lived in a small hut of only one room made of clay that the Pasha had provided for him. In that one room slept the farmer, his four wives, and each one with her three or four children, the cow, the goat, the pigs, and a Hock of hens. Such living conditions will be quite difficult for Americans to believe. It was only last year in July, 1952, that the leader of the revolution, Gen- eral Mohamed Naguib, threw out the King and confiscated all the wealth of those Pashas. He abolished at the same time the title of Pasha, and put most of the Pashas in prison for having exploited the poor. All their lands were confiscated and distributed among the poor, and their fortunes were used to build new housing for the workers and raise their standard of living. Another experience was equally moving and left an indelible impression on my memory. I still remember. It was on January 26, 1952, when I was returning from Alexandria, where I had gone for the week end with some friends to play basketball. Upon my return I saw all the city of Cairo in flames. Being both curious and alarmed, my friends and I watched the rioters running in the streets, uttering most shockingly vulgar and traitor- ous cries, and breaking the windows of the first shop which fell into their hands. One was pouring gasoline on the door, another was lighting the fire, other smart rascals, having entered before the tire spread, were com- THE ACADEMY BELL 35 pletely plundering the shop by stealing suits, shirts, shoes, and piles of blankets. When we saw that things were becoming more and more serious and that the police instead of helping the people were themselves killing and steal- ing, Paul, one of my friends who was an English subject, being concemed for our safety, proposed that we go to his house which was the nearest to where we were standing. We made our way through the dense crowd. It was at that moment that I saw the most horrible things.that I never ex- pected to witness. In the broadest avenue of Cairo called "Soliman Pacha Street" where in a long line were the most famous and most beautiful theaters, the rioters were lighting them one after the other and burning them to ashes. All the people, surprised by this sudden attack, did not know what to do. Businessmen left their offices and ran to their cars to steal away as soon as possible, but they found them in ruins. It was on my way that I saw the famous Shepherd Hotel in flames. Tourists who were living there were jumping from the windows to escape the fire. Some of them landed badly and broke their legs, others, on the contrary, finding the height too great, let the flames devour them while uttering piercing cries. Not far distant Barclay's Bank, where many young European girls were working, was burning. The rioters jumped on the girls working there and beat them like dogs, and then burned them as if they were worthless wood. Repelled by this scene, we kept going. A few minutes later we reached my friend's house, but there too a terrible tragedy awaited us. Paul's sister was sobbing at the door of the house, crying to her brother that their father and mother were at the British Turf Club. Indeed, as their parents were leaving the next morning for Europe, they had been invited to the club by an Eng- lish family. We went rushing there like fools to see the building in ashes and dust. We came upon the bodies of Paul's parents at the door with their arms and legs cut oil and the flesh still smoking in the fire. At this horrify- ing sight, Paul crumpled on the floor. We picked him up, took him back home, and called the doctor to revive him and to take care of him. Later on we talked to the principal of our school about Paul and his sister, for they had no one to care for them except us. As they both had British passports, Paul and his sister were sent to London by the British Embassy at Cairo. A few hours later, about six o'clock in the evening, we heard gun fire. lt was the Egyptian army which had at last arrived to deliver us. Why hadn't the Government acted sooner? That was the question. The reason was that the Prime Minister was selling a twelve-story building in the middle of the city while Cairo was burning, and the Minister of Interior was having a 36 THE ACADEMY BELL pedicure. Actually it was the American Ambassador who saved the situa- tion by going directly to King Farouk and commanding him to send out his army and reestablish order in the city. Otherwise, I believe that the army would have remained inactive. Eventually peace was established again, and the city slept in silence as usual. Thus I was an eye-witness to the destruction, human misery, and bar- barous cruelty iniiicted upon innocent people by Communists. PASCAL WOLDEMARIAM '53 How Shocking Now this is a story, as you soon will know, That just up and happened, oh, quite long ago. A tale of a shapely young kerosene lamp And a candle, a handsome, romantic young scamp. This lighthearted couple took a stroll in the park, And when no one was looking they began to "spark." The lamp she felt "wick"-ed, and they both were well "lit." As they strolled on together they sang just a bit. Now along came the light-bulb and he was so bright, The lamp, at the sight of him, swooned with delight. So the light-bulb revived her, and the candle, in shame, Watched them "light out" together, leaving him an "old flame? CAROLYN BURNELL '55 A Pipe Dream DOLLY, my saddle horse, stood nervously prancing from side to side as she saw us lowering the shafts of the sulky over her back. It was the first time we had ever harnessed her, and I optimistically anticipated a successful trial ride. True, she did not English rein well, but with a sulky she could go round and round without turning it over. Many people had remarked on her remarkable racing qualities. Her long stride, arched neck, and deep chest were perfect, according to many horsemen who saw her at the fair last fall. They knew horses. These men had convinced me that I should train her for the races, and they had assured me it was not a difficult task. Golly, with the purses that they paid at the fair, how could I lose by trying. Even if she didn't win, think what fun I'd have driving her hooked to a wagon or a sleigh! THE ACADEMY BELL 37 With some difiiculty we finished tightening the cinch and fastening the trigs to the whilile. Then we decided that John would lead her a short dis- tance at first. As she was constantly prancing, he was afraid she would step on him with her calked shoes. He led her to the track, while I rode, smiling as I thought of the victories ahead. It was an indescribable thrill to be riding on a sulky pulled by an unbroken horse. Then John let go of D0lly's head. All hell let loose! I was taken off guard and became terribly frightened as Dolly bolted with a free head. J ohn's confused shouts went unheeded as my stunned brain told me to pull on the reins. Dolly was stretched out into a full gallop with her feet flying so close to my legs that she threw a con- tinuous shower of dirt into my eyes. Partially blinded by the gravel, I hadn't realized that she had left the track and had gone into the alleys that ran between the stables. My arms ached from the strenuous pulling on the reins. How long before she would stop! Ahead loomed the end of the alley. She had to turn! Fear paralyzed me as she entered the sharp curve. The sulky skidded despite my weight pulling her close to the shed doors. Then a wheel caught, spinning her against the wall, and wood and steel gave way to her frightened strength. My feet became locked in their rests by the mashed steel that encircled them tightly. My leg pained me so excruciatingly that I fell forward into a hunched position. Leather ripped as the sulky freed its last tying threads from Dolly's relentless pull. The loosened shafts caught in the ground propelling me up and over with the sulky close behind. I lay some moments still thinking I was iiying through air. I was stunned by the pains that stabbed throughout my body. Soon John arrived and, seeing me amid all the debris, endeavored to rescue me. Then Dad drove up in the pickup and took us home. My dreams of a fortune from horse racing were as shattered as the sulky. PETER HASTINGS '53 My Singing Career I HAVE always wished that I could sing, and so has anyone who has ever heard me. A friend of mine once remarked, "Paul couldn't carry a tune in a bushel basket with sideboardsf' How right he was. However, I have al- ways enjoyed music, and I could spend an entire afternoon listening to Pinza or Durante. 38 THE ACADEMY BELL During the earlier part of my school career I longed to sing. Whenever a school play was given, I would try to get the best vocal part, but the teachers never chose me. I often wondered why. Finally I was given the leading part in a Christmas play that required me to sing a solo. How proud I was! Now at last, I was to perform in public. The evening of the play I marched my parents down to the front seats where they would be sure to hear me. I walked proudly to the center of the stage and began singing, "Silent Night-Holy Night." By the end of the first line, I was singing in five different keys, and at the close of the first verse the audience appeared to have throbbing toothaches. However, they all had to agree that the song had never been rendered like this before. It was sometime before I received another opportunity to sing in public, but eventually the minister, who had never heard me, asked me to join the choir, and I accepted eagerly. For some strange reason, the congregation was very small that day. Suddenly in the middle of a song, I realized how terrible my voice sounded. It was like a roaring bellow that rose on several keys and drowned out all others. I stopped singing right then, and, as I did so, a sigh of relief passed like a wave over the small congregation. So ended my career as a singer much to the joy of those who were un- fortunate enough to have to listen to me. PAUL WATSON ,55 A Day in the Forest DAWN had not yet broken when the owl's cry broke through the gloom. Nocturnal creatures paused in foraging for food and then one by one van- ished into the forest depths. The eastern sky began to lighten. There was a tinge of violet, then a rosy flush. Aurora, daughter of the dawn, had opened the gates for Helios, the fiery charioteer and sun-god. The sky was dyed a heavenly blue, and cot- ton clouds appeared on the horizon. Suddenly, the sun burst forth, lighting the trees, and wherever a shaft found its way to the forest floor, a million twinkling diamonds of dew gleamed in response. The forest stretched and awoke. A squirrel chattered from his tree, the crows set up a raucous caw- ingg a jay shriekedg and the forest resounded with noises. Each creature began to seek his breakfast. Sitting upright, bushy tail rigid, the squirrel held a nut and ate busily. The birds searched for worms, bugs, and insects. A mother crow winged off to her nest and popped a worm into the wide- open mouth of one of her progeny. In a pool a grandfather frog croaked inquiringly from his lily-pad, THE ACADEMY BELL There stepped into view a fox, with reddish-brown fur, a bushy tail, and a face that was sly and cunning. Behind her was a den from which appeared four inquisitive faces. The old mother fox growled low in her throat, and they vanished. Then she loped away. In a little glade a doe slept with her speckled fawn. This little fellow awoke and lay still. He hesitantly got to his feet and took a few steps out of the glade. His soft brown eyes surveyed the glade curiously. He was not sleepy nor was he hungry. After a glance at his mother, he trotted out, throwing caution to the winds to wander up to the pool for a drink. At the same moment the fox appeared. She stopped abruptly at the sight of the fawn. Her eyes gleamed, and she cautiously crept nearer. A crow gave a warning. The startled fawn looked about, and observing the fox, he broke into wild llight. The fox promptly followed, and hunter and hunted flew over the ground. The fawn began to tire. More than once the fox nearly touched his flanks. Sharp boulders loomed up in the distance. As they neared them, the fawn saw a ledge and leapt for it blindly. He suc- ceeded, and dashed on. It seemed as if he was cornered for the ledge ended. A few feet away, and quite detached from the others, was another. For one instant the fawn stopped, then gathering together his forces and strength, he leaped again. Luck was with him. He landed neatly on all four feet, and with one glance behind him, ran on. The mother fox, close behind him, was not so fortunate. So sure was she of a tasty meal that she was not able to stop herself, and thus she tumbled end over end to the bottom of the boulder. Dazed, bruised, and disappointed, she trotted away in search of other game. The fawn's mother had already discovered his disappearance, and was conducting a frantic search. At last she picked up his trail and followed it eagerly. They met half-way, and there was a joyful reunion. The two trotted slowly back to the glade and slept soundly until once more the owl's mournful cry drifted through the forest. MARY WADswoRTi-1 '54 My Experience with a Dam, a Jackhammer, and a Rope I WOULD never have got up that morning last summer if I had known what was in store for me. Unsuspectingly I left for work as usual. The morning went smoothly until ten o'clock, when Bill, our boss, told me to get jack- hammer No. 1 and follow him and Roger. I didn't follow them very fast, as the hammer weighed about a hundred and sixty pounds. I staggered with it to the base of the dam where they were standing. 40 THE ACADEMY BELL Bill pointed to a crack 'fifty feet up the dam and told Roger and me to take the jackhammer up there and knock out some of the concrete around where the dam was leaking, bore into it, insert a pipe and drain, and plug the crack with cement. Roger and I with great effort hauled the hammer up to the crack by two ropes. He wrapped a rope twice around one of my ankles, as it is quite impossible to stand on the face of a dam fifty feet above the ground without such support. We finally jockeyed the hammer into a position where we could start knocking out some of the cement around the crack. As I was lowest on the rope, I held the hammer in place, much to my sorrow, while Roger operated the controls. This was a back breaking enough task. The vibration of the hammer seemed to be shaking my arms loose from my shoulders. Suddenly I felt the rope loosen about my foot. Because my hands were sweating, I started to lose my grip on the hammer. The rope suddenly slackened. I slipped and started falling backwards. As I fell, I thought of the rocks reaching up for me from below and of my chances of coming through alive which I felt were slight. Then I felt the rope catch and tighten on my ankle. I snapped around in an arc, and my back and head slammed into the concrete with the force of freight trains meeting head on. I backed out then. I learned afterwards that I hung in midair with only the rope coiled around my ankle for support and that my companions had lowered two ropes from the top of the dam, had tied one under my shoulders and around my waist, and had lowered me to the ground. When I came to, I was in the hospital. A doctor had looked me over and had taken X-rays to find that I was suffering from a sprained ankle, a dis- location of three vertebrae, a concussion, and a bruised body, and a bump as big as a football on the back of my head. After Dad had explained how I was injured, the doctor looked me up and down and said, "My son, you were born under a lucky star." ALFREDO VALLADARES '53 Skill or Luck SMILING Joe Hodges, coach of the Newtown Pistons, had received his nick- name from the fact that he was, contrarily, always worried and carried a perpetual frown on his face. This year, however, he had cause to frown, for he had lost most of his key players from the year before and conse- quently had to build a new team around his big pivot man, Connie Sim- mons. He then began the tough job of cutting down and sorting out his players, and he was soon pleasantly surprised to discover that he had the THE ACADEMY BELL 41 material for a great team with skill, spirit, and drive such as he had never seen paralleled. To these essential qualities Joe, through his great coach- ing Wizardry, added the polishing touches that are necessary for all win- ning clubs. From the very opening of the season they overpowered most of the com- petition, and it soon became apparent that they had only one team to com- pete with, the powerful Bethel Wildcats. An intense rivalry developed, not only between the two teams, but also between Simmons and Johnson, Bethells high scorer, for the leading scorer's title. The battle for the dis- trict championship was a tough, grueling grind for both teams, with the lead changing hands like a hot potato. The battle lasted to the final game when, with the two teams all knotted-up for the lead, they were scheduled to meet head on at Bethel's home court. This all-important game decided not only the championship but also the coveted title, high scorer. From the opening whistle the teams gave all they had. Simmons and Johnson put on a spectacular shooting exhibition that left the crowd breathless. The half ended with the score 52 to 50 in favor of Newtown. In the second half, however, Carter, Bethel's great set-shot artist, started hitting from the outside, and coupled with Johnson's steady shooting from the bucket soon built up an eight point lead. Smiling Joe could see the title that he and his club had scrapped and worked so hard for all season slip- ping beyond his grasp. Then as so often before, the team caught lire. Little Johnny Foster, their great play-maker, soon had them fast-breaking. Some sensational all-round team shooting quickly put them back in the game with only two minutes left to play. Johnson was fouled and sank both shots to give Bethel a one-point lead. With ten seconds left to play, Newtown called time out. It was decided to pass the ball to Simmons for the final shot. Play was resumed, and the ball was thrown in and quickly whisked into the pivot to Simmons for the final and last shot of the game. But Bethel had anticipated the play and had him double-teamed! Without time enough to pass off, Simmons, in desperation threw the ball up over his head toward the basket. It arched. The crowd held its breath. It dropped cleanly through the basket for the biggest two points of the season. Thus Simmons won the high scorer's title as well as the championship for the team. FREDERICK WENZEL '53 42 THE ACADEMY BELL The Big Drive THE day was bright and raw, for spring had not yet taken away the bite from the wind. The swollen river was at full from rushing and eager spring freshets. The skidways were slipping on the thawing banks. A cry rose from the densely wooded ridge above. The drive was on! Woolen pants chopped off at the knees were slipped on, and spiked river boots were dragged from duffels. Each man selected a satisfactory newly made peavey from the stack, for he knew that his peavey and the inch long spikes in his boots would be his providence and efficient support through- out the drive. He then dashed to the river bank to receive orders from the boss. One man was distinguished from the rest by his steel gray eyes and rippling muscles suggesting power, litheness, and quick superiority. His features were hardened and bronzed from winter blasts and Canadian sunshine. This lumberman of striking appearance was Mark Galloway, a foreman for Camp Six. Mark Galloway stepped into the knot of motley log drivers and without a word picked five expert peaveymen who stepped out to stand beside Mark as the boss assigned the rest of the men to their jobs. Some rolled logs on the skidways while others gathered the logs into loose groups. Mark and his five crewmen hurried across the leading edge of the gigantic swiftly moving mass of ever increasing logs. Galloway and his five river stars darted swiftly to and fro across the rolling and tossing billets straightening them and keeping a formation in front. Occasionally a log closely pressed would shoot from the water and land with a boom. The mumbling motor of a bateau sounded far up-river. The crew dislodged logs from snags and sent them racing down the roaring torrent. In two days of hard driving with no accidents they covered a distance of fifty or sixty miles behind the speeding logs. Around the next bend was a long cataract which was the portal to Grizzly Falls and the Whales Mouth. The latter was a boiling and gigantic pool surrounded by sheer walls of granite hundreds of feet high. Into this seething caldron poured Grizzly Falls, a waterfall 175 yards wide and 423 feet high. The brink was an underwater ridge from which granite teeth pro- jected above the water level. It was necessary to have an exceptionally high water to drive effectively five and one half million feet of lumber in the rough over the Grizzly. All the river men left the logs at the cataract and ran to the cliffs above the Whales Mouth, where they watched with crowds of spectators from the THE ACADEMY BELL 43 nearby town. Leaping and booming in clouds of spray, the logs shot the cataract and rushed for the falls. Suddenly without warning seven or eight logs boxed and rammed on a rock jamming the drive into a tight wedge fifteen feet high. A hasty conversation between the boss and Galloway led to a danger- ous decision. Dynamite! The log jam was too close to the edge of the Whales Mouth to use a peavey crew. Mark quickly ran across the jam with a box of caps and dynamite under one arm and a coil of fuse around his neck. He expertly and quickly set it and cut five minutes of fuse. Leaping with speedy agility, he started back to safety. Suddenly a log teetered and rolled throwing him on his knees. A glance toward the dynamite told him there was no time left. He dove far out across the pool below as the jam let go. With an ear splitting roar it broke. Logs filled the air. To the crowd on shore the possibility of anyone getting out of that hole alive seemed be- yond hope. Mark hit the water cleanly and was propelled beneath the water's sur- face for ten or twelve yards. The sense of danger urged him on to swim beneath the water until he could reach a rocky wall. Galloway climbed upon a narrow projection of rock where an overhanging cliff shielded him from the flying logs which filled the pool in their rush to get through the opening into the river. Galloway, with an exultant cry, ran across the giant raft of tossing logs through the opening in the high rock walls to the safety of the river banks. Great shouts of joy greeted him. A tearful girl ran to him bursting with gladness as he took her gently in his wet powerful arms. CARL LUSKY '54 Hot-Rod Racing Limerick Hot-rod racing is a lot of fun. You put 'er in gear then "give 'er the gun." Speed up in second and "floor it" in "high.,' But you've got to be careful or you're sure to die. Now I once raced a "Hot-rod J oe," And his old car could really go. When up beside me came a cop, Who pulled me over to a stop. The other car he could not hail, So here I sit, thirty days in jail. ROBERT CLOUTIER '5 5 44 THE ACADEMY BELL Devil Wind THERE was snow in the air that fateful day the three boys started their hazardous climb up Mt. Washington. The north wind was blowing with such terrific velocity it seemed to be trying to tear the mountain from its mooring. In the hut at the base the wind howled and screamed around the windows, and the hutkeeper shook his head in despair, remembering that too many times foolhardy fellows had started up the mountain on such a da . lllearing the headwall the boys struggled upward. The wind played dis- mal tunes around them and turned their faces and hands to ice. Already experienced climbers, today would prove whether they had the skill to overcome the terrific odds against them. Chet, the lead man on the rope, was the oldest of the three. Their lives were in his hands, forif he fell the others would follow. He reached for a hold, and, as he did so, a swirl of snow blocked his vision. For a minute the boys seemed to be hanging in mid-air on a white cloud. Just in time the flurry abated, and Chet reached the jutting rock and pulled himself and his buddies to safety. They rested for a moment. The wind suddenly became powerfully strong. They were nearing the top of the headwall when it happened. The rocks were icy and the wall was practically at a ninety-degree angle. A tre- mendous blast of wind struck the boys as they struggled for a toe hold. Chet had clasped with his right hand the jagged rock at the edge of the summit when a final terrific blast tore him and his comrades from the trail and flung them below on the mountain side. The rocks were coated with ice and snow so slippery that the boys rolled for some distance down the sharp incline. Chet felt the horrible sensation of motion he was powerless to check and the searing pain of the crampons ripping the flesh on his face. Finally they stopped at the brink of a snow precipice. Chet, exhausted from pain and fatigue, was overcome by blissful unconsciousness, not knowing that his friends were hardly injured at all and that Joe immediately had set out for aid. Bob remained with Chet while the storm wind increased its ferocity and dark, ominous clouds gathered above them. Chet awakened gradually. He thought he could still hear the wind moan- ing about him. Slowly his eyes focused on the strange surroundings. Then the full force of its implication struck him. He was in a hospital. Now he remembered it all. The last struggle to reach the top and the gale of wind that had lifted Bob, Joe, and himself from the mountain side. A terrible thought assailed him. Was he the only one who had survived? His left leg was in traction and his face was so bandaged that only his mouth was THE ACADEMY BELL 45 visible. Horrible memories crossed his mind as he lay there. The whole ac- cident loomed as a terrible nightmare. More dismal thoughts continued to torture him. Suddenly his heart was warmed when he heard the familiar, kindly voice of his father, who said, "Everything will be all right son. Don't worry." ANN MCKEY '54 In Tribute Up here in the north we are terribly proud Of a state that's known to you all, For her rocky coast, her many lakes, And her pine trees standing tall.

F AY HODGDON ,54 The Twilight Concerts AT least once a month, and usually weekly, for an hour following after- noon classes, we students who enjoy classical and semi-classical music gather in the Elizabeth W. Tinker Library where Mr. Blaich conducts "Vic" programs for our instruction and enjoyment. They are instructive in that Mr. Blaich, before he plays the selection, ex- plains its background, its nature, age, composer, story perhaps, history, and any and all facts pertaining to its background. The better acquainted we become with the selection, the more we appreciate it. These concerts bring together those who love musicg and from the group who attend these programs, we discover the Students with whom we may discuss music. These programs are adding their bit of culture to our lives. Thank you, Mr. Blaich. THE ACADEMY BELL 49 Senior Drama-1953 ON the evening of January 15, the K. of P. Hall was filled to capacity as the members of the class of '53 presented their senior drama. The large au- dience of families and friends greatly enjoyed the three-act drama, "Seven- teenth Summer." Angie, just graduated from high school, finds the start to a new life in that "seventeenth summer." She meets Jack, her first boy friend, and learns how much happiness a boy can bring a girl. However, she also is forced to learn the heartaches that so often go with that happiness. Angie grew up that summer! Nancy Taylor, as Angie, made us laugh when she laughed and cry when she cried. Her interpretation of the part was indeed excellent. Special mention should be made of that vivacious freshman, Nancy Schildberg, whose enlivened pranks contributed greatly toward the suc- cess Of the play. The entire cast should be congratulated for a fine performance, and Mrs. Heartz for her excellent, patient direction.

The glee club sang several selections at the Christmas Vespers, held in the Congregational Church, and supplied the musical background for the Christmas pageant. In December, a special chorus from the glee club joined with the Eastem Slope chorus to present a Christmas program in Conway. Mr. Petillo is now preparing us to sing several selections at the annual prize-speaking contest, and we are rehearsing for the spring concert. Thank you, Mr. Petillo, for your efficient instruction. MOLLY MANSUR '55 Combined Christmas Concerts AGAIN this year Mr. Petillo selected a special group from the academy glee club to join the Eastern Slope mixed chorus in the annual Christ- mas concert in Conway. First we practiced the songs in school until we had become familiar with them, then we attended the Conway rehearsals, wherein there was a period for work and also time for a social hour. The concert was on December 18, in the Conway Methodist Church. The selections were as follows: "Now Let Every Tongue Adore Thee" .,.,.. .....,.. J . S.

JUNE WALKER '54 THE ACADEMY BELL 51 Third Annual Concert- 1 95 2 THIS year there were but two schools participating in the joint Christmas concert instead of the usual three. After many months of practice, the Bridgton Academy and Fryeburg Academy glee clubs combined to pre- sent the Hrst concert in Bridgton on April 27, and the second one in Frye- burg on May 4. The Hrst two selections, "In These Delightful Pleasant Groves" and "Panis Angelicusf' were sung by both choral groups. Fol- lowing that, Albert Gilpatrick played a violin solo, "Romance," with Donald Coe as accompanist. The Bridgton Academy Songsters certainly put lots of pep in their three selections-"Winter and Spring," "Blue Room," and "Star Dustf' The Fryeburg girls' sextet sang "Tune-Up Time" and "Because You're You." They had rigid competition when the Bridgton Academy boys' double quartet sang "My Lord, What a Momingf' "Lindy Lou," and "Shinef' Fryeburg's individual selections were "The Modern Choir," which was very humorous, and "L'e tanto tempo che." We are all very proud of Miss Leighton for her excellent accompani- ments, and we take our hats off to both her and Mr. Petillo for their pa- tience and instruction.

Boy, were we scared! I guess it was just thinking about it that was so bad. Anyway, our knees were knocking to- gether. There they sat ready and waiting to tell us what we would have to do. Bill Texido gave us a speech on what our initiation would be like and then presented us with blue beanies and name tags so we wouldn't be con- fused with upperclassmen. We were given a list of things to do, and each day something new was added. The girls wore no make-up, skirts were turned wrong side out, and we carried teething rings. We looked as though we were having a second childhood. The boys wore neckties, their pantlegs Crolledj to the knees, and carried stuffed animals. Imagine a real he-man freshman carring a tiny pink elephant or a fuzzy little kitten. What a sight we made going through the halls! The boys were excused from wearing their beanies in class, but the girls were not. We felt downright picked on. Monday, the first day of our initiation, went nicely with all the fresh- men looking and feeling equally foolish in their little beanies. Tuesday, however, proved a slight change. A bus student forgot her beanie, and since she lived quite a distance from school, it was impossible for her to walk home and get it, though she probably would have liked to. The girls 56 THE ACADEMY BELL in homeroom didn't help matters any as they dreamed up all sorts of hor- rible things the student council would do to her and by making such re- marks as, "Oh, well, you can only die once." She somehow managed to bear the next few hours, though every time she passed an upperclassman he had an amused smile on his face as if to say, "Oh, what you're in for." At noon she was told that her initiation would be extended another week. By Friday there were about a dozen other unfortunates who had received the same punishment. Thursday and Friday we were supposed to line up after lunch and bow to teachers and upperclassmen as they returned to school. At live minutes of one a very sloppy bunch of freshmen were gathering around the front door. They were wearing their clothes wrong side out, and the stuffed ani- mals they carried were looking rather bedraggled. We finally were herded into a straight line by the student council members, and the bowing com- menced. The student council kept a close watch over us to see that we bowed constantly. What a queer scene we must have made for people passing by! Friday finally came and with it the end of our initiation. That night there was a square dance which freshmen were required to attend. Many of us looked and felt very clumsy at first, but after a few dances we were all having fun. We were all glad the initiation was over, but even so, we look back on it as the highlight of the freshman year. Our thanks to the stu- dent council for making our initiation so much fun. BEVERLY MILLS '56 Fall Sports Dance NOVEMBER brought the annual Fall Sports Dance. A group of eager A. A. girls, along with a few senior boys, decorated the gym with colorful leaves, pumpkins, hay, and balloons bearing the names of the varsity players. Everyone enjoyed dancing to the music of Roy Horne's orchestra. J udged by attendance and festive spirit, the Sports Dance was a successful affair ending much too soon. ANN NORTON '53 Sadie Hawkins- 1 95 3 THURSDAY afternoon found Fryeburg Academy in an excited state. At two o'clock school was out, and everyone rushed to the gymnasium to see two thrilling games with the Kennett girls. We were victorious in both games. THE ACADEMY BELL 57 That evening we found ourselves enjoying a buffet supper served to us at the Alumni House. A moccasin dance with recorded music followed on the skating rink. At 8:00 we all tripped to the gymnasium to watch our jayvee boys meet Casco. Our boys played an excellent game but lost by a few points. Thus ended the first day of festivities. Friday afternoon the seventh period was omitted, and everyone went to the Congregational Church for an assembly. Mr. George Campbell, a humorist, entertained us with his witty remarks. He also led the audience in singing. Everyone enjoyed this program immensely. Skiing at Starks Hill and skating at the academy rink followed and were enjoyed by all. Ski races were held with Alice Breen and Beverly Stearns taking first and second prizes for girls. Peter Bowie copped first place for boys with David Bowles in second place . That evening the Coronation Ball was held in the Gibson Gymnasium. The decorations were very effective and attractive with paper snowflakes overhead, and huge, white, paper bears with blue ribbons around their necks as wall decorations. Light refreshments were served during the evening's festivities. At the chosen time the way was cleared for the entrance of the lovely queen and her attendants. Diane Eastman of Fryeburg was crowned queen by Mr. LaCasce. Her crown was borne by four-year-old Betsy Oliver. The queen's attendants were Allison Bailey, Beverly Osgood, Shirley Greene, J oline Edwards, and Christa Brown. The queen presented her attendants with gifts and gave out the ski awards. The queen and her escort then led the grand march, followed by her attendants and others. After this, dancing was resumed to the music of Oscar Andrews' orchestra. Once again another very successful Sadie Hawkins is but a lingering memory' JUNE WALKER '54 Assemblies THIS year the sound of three bells meant we were off to the Congregational Church for enjoyment of another assembly program. Our first assembly was a concert by the Petillo family. Each selection revealed a particular talent of one of the three who participated. The fact that we have heard these musicians before in no way detracted from our enjoyment. George Mathews, an outstanding tenor, gave the student body an emo- tional experience from his singing, especially of the spiritual nature. I'm sure this presentation was inspiring to everyone. 58 THE ACADEMY BELL Duke and Myrnella Montague performed many astounding feats known as "magic,,' and she demonstrated an unusual ability by memorizing in- stantly and repeating correctly a list of twenty articles in order, jumbled, and backward. "On the Bottom of the Sea" was the topic of Robert Zimmerman, a noted swimmer and deep-sea diver. His exhibition of curiosities from the floor of the ocean was educational and amazing. His way of relating his experiences while he was under water for many hours turned horror into humor. Our next program was a Musical Roundup of 20th Century B.C. J. Phillips Robertson presented many ancient instruments from countries all over the world. He explained their origin, use, and correlation to our instruments today. The audience was held in awe when its ears actually perceived a melody from such weird appearing instruments. Mr. Robert- son, a baritone, also accompanied some of his music in native dialect. The Professor of Public Relations from Boston University spoke to us on finding a suitable vocation. Roland Darling stressed the importance of a wise decision in choosing a profession or deciding on courses for further study. During Sadie Hawkins week end we enjoyed an informal and delightful program. George Campbell led the student body in popular and folk songs and told several entertaining stories. Thus far, you can see, our assemblies have proved greatly varied, as well as educational and interesting to the students. They are a welcome change from the daily routine of our school days. VIVIAN SEELYE '53 Y-Teens President ALICE BREEN Vice-President NANCY TAYLOR Secretary MARILYN MCALLISTER Treasurer DARLA JEWETT Adviser Miss PRISCILLA HIGGINS THERE was an air of excitement in the halls. The Y-Teens was having its first meeting for this school year. The girls rushed to the library, eager to meet the old and new members. We had a "get-acquainted" party, which was enjoyed by all. The Y-Teens is composed of a majority of the girls in the school. It meets every other Monday and is entertained by its own talent or some- THE ACADEMY BELL 59 times by outside talent. The Y-Teens also is ready to help others at all times. Our first program was an interesting talk on astronomy by Mrs. Ernest Richardson. She explained some of the "wonders" of the sky that were unknown to us. Later girls from our group related their experiences in looking over col- leges for their future education. Also we heard reports on a religious con- vention and a student council convention. At another meeting, Mrs. Carolyn Perkins, a recruiter of nurses at the Maine Medical Center, explained the process of entering the nursing pro- fession. Mrs. Perkins also showed interesting slides on the work and social life at the Center. Before Christmas the Y-Teens sent "Chocolates for Christmasn and scrapbooks to the Philippines and Germany. We held the annual Christ- mas party for the girls of the first three grades of Fryeburg Grammar School. Everyone enjoyed the program of a movie, carols, and refresh- ments. One of our fellow students, Pascal Woldemariam, spoke to us on cus- toms, education, and social life in Ethiopia and Egypt. We helped sponsor the Sadie Hawkins Heyday and all the Y-Teens helped with the decorations for the Coronation Ball. Later Mrs. Doris Ebel gave an interesting and informal talk of her ex- periences and of the social life ir1 Germany. She also explained how she be- came an American citizen. As we review the events of the past year in Y-Teens, we see a happy and successful year. We wish many good times to the groups following 0 . urs ELIZABETH WALKER '54 Future Homemakers of America IN the spring of last year sixteen girls attended the State Future Home- makers of America Convention held in Portland, Maine. Our past presi- dent, Priscilla Lamb, was a candidate for a state office at the convention. Although she was defeated, it was a great honor and privilege to be one of the few chosen as candidates. A Mother and Daughter Banquet was held in the latter part of the school year, and it gave us a chance to get to know each other. It was an event we all enjoyed. The Fryeburg Chapter of the Future Homemakers of America is only ir1 its second year, but it has made great progress toward becoming a well- 60 THE ACADEMY BELL organized and efficient group, thanks to Mrs. Gray, our friendly and help- ful adviser. We started the year off with the installation of the new officers and the initiation of new members, This year the Fryeburg Future Homemakers of America have accom- plished many projects. We served a very successful dinner to the Kiwanis Club. We had charge of the annual Thanksgiving Tea. Each class has had a class project. The senior and junior group made Christmas cookies for the Sunday School children. The sophomores dec- orated the Congregational Church for the annual Christmas Vespers. The freshmen made Christmas tray decorations for the Memorial Hospital at North Conway. We have also joined the Red Cross and have contributed to the 1953 March of Dimes drive. We also made valentine cookies to sell with a chance for a valentine cake. The profits went for the new gymnasium toward which we are all striving. The sale was successful.

Our programs, including refreshments, are typical of ancient Rome. THE ACADEMY BELL 61 Our first skit, to interest the new members, pertained to the former activi- ties of the club. Other programs have included a Christmas play in Latin, the origin of our modern calendar, the exchange of valentines, a valentine pantomime, and an Ides of March program. We also enjoyed colored slides of Rome with accompanying talks to further our knowledge of the Roman people and their surroundings. Our guest meeting was very successful. Our last program will be either a trip to Portland to see a movie with Roman background or a club ban- quet.

Manchester of the University of Maine as speaker. The F. F. A. dairy Boat, representing the interests of the Saco Valley Dairy Farmers, received first place at both the Maine Dairymen's Association parade in Auburn and at Fryeburg Fair. The float showed that the cow consumes grass, hay, and grain to produce milk and cream to be made into by-products such as cheese and butter. We had judging teams that attended both Cumberland and Fryeburg Fairs and did creditable work at both. Again this year we showed cattle from the academy farm at Fryeburg Fair and had experience in showing and training. Eight boys attended the State F. F. A. Convention in Orono where they participated in judging and other activities. At that time Donald Quincy was awarded a State Farmers' Degree. We also had boys in our chapter who attended the distrizt convention in Livermore Falls. Last year Donald Quincy was lirst place winner in the Electrification Contest in the county. He also received honorable mention for the state award and won an electric clock. Springmont Farm, for the third year, has promoted our chapter by the distribution of F. F. A. calendars.

These tests are sent to the teachers of these subjects, who super- vise them. A great deal of interest is shown by the commercial students. Only one test in each subject can be taken during a month. After the pupils have taken the test, they are sent to the Gregg office where they are cor- rected by a Board of Examiners. As soon as the student passes a test, he receives a certificate issued by the company. The certificate inspires the student to put more time and elfort into his work that he may earn the next certificate. The following students have won awards to date: 0.G.A.

Tinker Chapter of the National Honor Society is a student or- ganization consisting of juniors and seniors who are elected on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. There are now seventeen members in this chapter of the Honor Society. It is hoped that in forth- coming years many more students will attain the high standards set for membership. The Honor Society closed its 1952 activities with a private initiation, in which Janet Bradeen and Jackson Perkins were inducted as members, fol- lowed by an informal luncheon in the Home Economics room. For its 1952-1953 year, the Honor Society has brought to the bi-monthly meet- ings many interesting speakers, who, without exception, have given enter- taining talks as well as educational ones. On February 18, the annual win- ter banquet was held at Ye Olde Inn. For this banquet, the Honor Society is indebted to Mr. Tinker, whose generosity made it possible. D Sludcnl Council Latin Club Cilee Club Y-Teens THE ACADEMY BELL 65 At a ceremony in February, performed before the student body. the following were inducted as members: Nancy Charles, Brian Dolley, David Harriman, Faye Hodgdon, Darla J ewett, Carol Leavitt, Ann McKey, Mary Wadsworth, Elizabeth Walker, and June Walker. A square dance, with Mrs. Alice Dudley calling the steps, will be held on April 10. The proceeds of this dance will be contributed to the Gym- nasium Fund. The presentation of two one-act plays has been planned for later in the year, the proceeds of these plays is to be used for the purchase of the National Honor Society awards, which are given to the boy and girl maintaining the highest scholastic average in the freshman class. As one of its annual projects, the Honor Society has been endeavoring to complete the alumni list. Other projects have been the reporting of school events for the newspapers, the keeping of a scrapbook of school activities, and the awarding of the freshman scholastic medals. FRANCIS KINNELLY '53 Student Council President WILLIAM TEXIDO Vice-President DIANE EASTMAN Secretary NANCY CHARLES Adviser J oHN BERRY THE Student Council is made up of three representatives from the senior class and two from each of the junior, sophomore, and freshman classes. Those of the senior, junior, and sophomore classes are chosen by popular vote of their classmates in May. The representatives from the freshman class are chosen the following September. The Council has continued the "Big Brother and Sisteri' program, for the purpose of aiding the freshmen and new students. Again this year, in- stead of the freshman social, we had a one-week initiation period climaxed by a square dance. The Student Council selects the school assembly program for the follow- ing year and collects for the March of Dimes and the Heart Disease drives. It also headed a magazine drive to start a fund for a new gymnasium. Four delegates, William Texido, Diane Eastman, Raymond Sawyer, and Nancy Charles attended the State Student Council Convention in Auburn to gain new ideas to improve the Council. The Student Council is ready and willing to help overcome any prob- lems or difficulties that arise among the student body. The members for this year are: William Texido, Russell Linkenbach, 66 THE ACADEMY BELL Diane Eastman, Raymond Sawyer, Nancy Charles, Robert Solari, Kay Femald, Fred Whitaker, and Barbara Brown. NANCY CHARLES '54 Annual Penny Carnival TIME for another Penny Carnival started many students frantically rack- ing their brains for new and original ideas to raise money and still give the patrons something in retum, whether playing a game just for fun, Watching a good boxing match, or winning a prize. As a result, all head- aches and pains suffered putting this carnival into motion were rewarded well. As usual a big crowd gathered when the doors were opened, and from all reports on receipts, everyone had fun. Another proof of this is the con- tinuous joyous laughter and broad grins on almost every face. Mr. Walker made another of his magnificent cedar chests, which is an- nually given away to the lucky person holding the chance with the number that was drawn. Mrs. Robert Wells was the lucky lady this time. If you have never seen or attended one of our annual Penny Carnivals, you are really missing something, for there is never a dull moment, and I think everyone goes home happy and very much satisfied when the last gun is fired. Also when you see the work the students have put into it, you will see why there is always a big crowd, and people talk about it for so long after.

GRAY Manager: BENNIE DAVIS THE '52 baseball team proved itself to be a spirited, well-coached club with its 6-4 record. The club started out well by trouncing Kents Hill and then taking Hebron in a thriller with Bartlett's grand slam in the ninth. How- ever, Bridgton turned the tables by bumping us soundly. We had split the next four games for a 4-2 record when we met Gould on our own field. This was another breath-taker with Bartlett and DeLisle holding the show. lt was a see-saw game throughout with our club scoring three in the eighth to win. Our games weren't won on just game day, though. lt was our long, daily practices and Mr. Gray's patient coaching that gave us the indescribable "umph', that made us click so efhciently. Waine Bartlett should also be acknowledged for his powerful pitching which downed so many of our op- ponents. With so many of the squad returning, the school should look for- ward to another successful year in '53.

GRIERSON Manager: FRANCIS KINNELLY UNDER the able coaching of "Pop" Grierson, a well-balanced and hustling jayvee baseball nine was formed in the 1952 season. Although its successes were not great, the squad compiled one win and one tie against Casco and Bridgton Academy respectively, as against two losses to Bartlett High. Joe Locklin carried the bulk of the pitching load with Bob Wilson and Jay Pit- man helping out, while Tufts and Barton supplied most of the offense with some timely hitting. THE SQUAD 3b.-H.

SAVOIA, ROBERT STRONG Manager: FRANCIS KINNELLY THE start of the 1952 football season produced a large, eager group of boys, and under the capable hands of Coach Savoia and Assistant Coach Strong, an able and well-balanced team made up of about half seniors and half underclassmen, was soon developed. Those out for their last year and sure to be missed next year were Gibby DeLisle, Ralph Moore, Bill Texi- do, Dave Harriman, Azel Littlefield, Paul Hurley, Jack Shand, Freddy Wenzel, Pete Hastings, Bob Mooney, and Russ Linkenbach. With only two weeks of practice Fryeburg played its first game against Bridgton High and came off with an 18 to 6 setback, mainly through the lack of time for practice. Our next game was against Brewster, and again we lost by the count of 14 to 0 when Brewster threw two touchdown passes in the last half. The Fryeburg eleven broke into the win column the fol- lowing week when it came out on top with a 19 to O victory over the New Hampton J ayvees. The next game was a heartbreaker as Kents Hill scored a touchdown in the last two minutes to beat us 7 to 2. The team traveled to Hebron the following Saturday and beat their Reserves 13 to 7 with two touchdowns in the last quarter. Gould, our traditional rival, was the next stop, and the team as a whole gave all it had, but the breaks were against us as they had been all season, and we were beaten by a touchdown in the last quarter after we had out- played them most of the game. Next year promises to be more successful, with several of this year's key men returning to form a nucleus around which a team can be built from the many promising candidates coming up.

HEARTZ THE cross country team of 1952 enjoyed one of Fryeburg's most success- ful seasons in quite a few years. In the initial meet against Gould, Fryeburg took its only set-back by the score of 22 to 37. Payne, however, took first place, Palmer sixth, and Hamilton seventh. Fryeburg emerged victorious 29 to 30 against Hebron in its next meet when Payne set a new course rec- ord at Fryeburg. Palmer took second place and he was followed by Hamil- ton for third. In the retum meet at Hebron, Fryeburg came out victorious by the count of 28 to 30, when once again Payne came in first and shaved I minute and 14 seconds off the course record at Hebron. Hamilton also broke the old record to take second place and was followed by Palmer for third. The squad traveled to Orono on November 5 for the prep school cham- pionship meet and returned with the title. Payne once again set the pace, while Hamilton followed him for second place. Palmer came in fourth, Eastman eighth, and Kelly eleventh. Next year promises to be even better with only the loss of Kelly at grad- uation. The squad was composed of Rayfield Payne, Lucian Hamilton, Ronald Palmer, Robert Eastman, Dennis Payne, Scott Kelly, Francis Wacker, and Walda Woodward.

SAVOIA FRYEBURG,S 1952 track season was not wholly successful. It had some very strong points, but there were also some very weak points which tended to slow down the team. The boys that did the greatest job by taking first places were the fol- lowing: John Conway in the shot, John Freiday and Henry Anthony in the javelin and high jump, Louis Drudi and Roger Lewis in the dashes, Alex deRenzy in the discus, Robert Sterling in the hurdles, and Rayfield Payne in the long runs. The team finished second in the triangular meet with Rumford and Mexico, placed first in a meet with Bridgton Academy, and lost to Kents Hill. It dropped to third place in the Oxford County meet against power- ful teams from Gould and Rumford. A few boys went to the state meet but were not very successful. Members of the team were J. Conway, J. Freiday, L. Drudi, R. Mooney, W. Texido, H. Anthony, R. Collins, R. Lewis, P. Davis, A. Gilpatrick, A. deRenzy, R. Sterling, W. Woodward, B. Bell, R. Payne, and R. Solari. HENRY ANTHONY '53 Skiing SKIING this year was made easier by the bulldozer hired by "Mr." to clear Starks Hill for us. A Ski Club was organized, and the officers were as follows: Peter Bowie, president, Alice Breen, vice-president, Beverly Stearns, secretary, and Miss Marion LaCasce, adviser. A race was held among the skiers of the school as a Sadie Hawkins event. Peter Bowie took first and David Bowles second for the boys, while Alice Breen took first for the girls, followed by Beverly Stearns for second place. Medals were awarded to these people. Five pairs of cross country skis were purchased and they have been fitted and finished by those using them. The boys who went to the state meet at Farmington on February 20-21 were Peter Bowie, David Bowles, Francis Wacker, Breton Russell, Allan Burroughs, Robert Eastman, War- ren Cressy, and Eugene Tufts. We have made several enjoyable trips to Pleasant Mt. this year. DAVID A. Bowuas '53 Baseball, 1952 Football Varsity Basketball Cross Country THE ACADEMY BELL 75 Varsity Basketball Coach: ROBERT STRONG Manager: DAVID HARRIMAN WELL, King basketball rolled by a couple months ago and took some good bounces as well as bad for a change. With the loss of Collins, Conway, and Hastings, Fryeburg looked for another rough season under its new coach. Surprisingly enough though, Coach Strong's team downed a couple of clubs for upsets. The Fryeburg squad came out with a 6-9 record, best in recent years. With six seniors leaving the squad this year, Kelly, Wenzel, H. Ward, Lewis, Bartlett, and Texido, next year should prove to be another year of molding for Coach Strong. Jim Harvey, a hard-driving guard, will be back from this year's first five. But let us look at this year's team. First, and most important, they showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the sea- son. Second, was their willingness to never give ground right down to the final gun. Although not too impressive at the start, the home team picked up mo- mentum, in the way of winning games, and finished with a fourth place berth at the State "Prep" School Tournament at University of Maine. There they fell before a strong M. C. I. quintet which went on to cop the championship. The season was highlighted by a 52-50 win over Kents Hill, there, and with a close win at Tilton Academy 44-37. The local cagers were con- stantly hampered by the size of the gyms and players but showed their ability against New Hampton by hitting 97 points on our own small floor. Much credit is due our new coach, who molded practically Eve strangers into a well-coordinated quintet. His capable job also brought many re- serves into action during hard fought contests. One of these reserves was Jabie Ward whose retum from Germany was greatly welcomed. Con- gratulations to a great coach and person, Bob Strong, and his manager, Dave Harriman. The individual scoring of the Hrst five was Kelly 199, Texido 120, Harvey 109, Wenzel 92, and Bartlett 85. Season's results: Fryeburg Opponents 37 Gorham J. V.'s 60 52 St. Francis 58 58 Tilton J.

They won only one game, but, led by Wilson and Hammond, they made impres- sive showings against a strong Casco team. The 1952-53 schedule was as follows: Fryeburg J.

The girls gained much valuable experience during the season and had a wonderful time in the process. They attended the annual softball Play Day at Waynllete. Fryeburg had an easy 9-0 win over Greeley Institute but lost to Sanford 11-3 in the semi-finals. Although three players of the three-year-undefeated varsity squad grad- uated, we are looking forward with eager anticipation to another success- ful season.

Coach LaCasce formed a hard-working, capable varsity team from only a few girls who were left from last year's varsity squad and a few girls who were moved up from the junior varsity team. Although we lost our opening game to Bridgton High by a score of 36- 28, the girls, playing together for the first time, gained much experience. The girls competed in many hard-fought games with schools from far and near and compiled a record of 4 wins, 6 losses, and one tie. The junior varsity squad was made up of practically a whole new group of girls. Although they got off to a bad start, they gained much valuable experience to carry over into next year's varsity sextet. They bowed to Bridgton High 33-19 in their opening game and ended the season with a record of 2 wins and 7 losses. Both teams had a good time playing throughout the season, and both showed excellent sportsmanship on and off the fioor. VARSITY LINE-UP Forwards: D. Eastman, J. Edwards, C. Brown, V. Payne, E.

The veterans, as well as the newcomers, had much to learn. "Keep that stick down, slant that pass." Similar phrases could be heard throughout the first few weeks of practice. Finally the players were in condition and awaited patiently the day when the list of the varsity and junior varsity teams would be posted. Once chosen, the squads found hours of practice were necessary to get ready for the big hockey Play Day at Deering. Both teams had good luck, with the varsity winning four and losing only the final game with Deering 0-1 ir1 a hard-fought game. The junior varsity lost two and tied two games at this Play Day. In our other games scheduled, we did as well with the varsity winning two, tying one, and losing one. The junior varsity tied all four of its games. At the end of the season the sticks and shin guards were sadly put away, sixteen of the players laid theirs away, never again to use them for "good old F.

The varsity squad consisted of: Shirley Brown, Christa Brown, Jeanne Calley, Betty Weyand, Darla Iewett, and Alice Zigenfuss, along with co-captains Priscilla Draper and Beverly Stearns. We instigated some- thing new this year-a junior varsity squad who led the cheering for junior varsity games and who willingly acted as substitutes among the varsity group. These girls, headed by Betty Weyand, included Ann McKey, Molly Mansur, and Grace Weston. New uniforms added to the appearance of the groupg some new cheers along with the improved old ones promoted school spirit. Miss Lekousi, a very able supervisor, was a vital member of this group.
