That means that this student publication is old. The 1955 issue is excellent and is a worthy link in the chain. I congratulate all the people who worked to make this issue a success. Keep your copy. It will be more valuable as the years go by. In a school, town, state, or nation each individual has responsibilities. The strength of the group depends upon the individual. Some years ago, even before my time, Plato said, "The strength of a democracy for a schoolj is judged by the quality of the services rendered by its citizens." 1 THE ACADEMY BELL 5 The Man and His School IN September, 1922, as Fryeburg Academy opened for its one hundred and thirty-first year, a newly appointed principal, Elroy O. LaCasce, greeted the students. An unprecedented era in the history of the Acad- emy began. The physical plant which was the Academy was unimpressiveg the main building, Webster Hall, consisted of four classrooms, an assem- bly hall, and an office. Commercial sub jects were taught in Gordon Hallg manual training in what was formerly the stable of the Alumni House, the Alumni House and the Frye House completed the Academy proper- ty and served as homes for the faculty and the few boarding students. The faculty numbered seven full-time teachers, including the princi- pal, and one part-time music instructor. One hundred fourteen students, most of whom were day students-many commuted daily by train- made up the school. In addition to teaching mathematics, directing the activities of the school, and coaching two sports, the principal also kept the books and wrote his own letters in spare moments. Football, long a forgotten sport here, was revivedg Mr. LaCasce worked diligently with a squad of perhaps seventeen or eighteen boys- a squad which surely deserved the appellation "green." The significant thing about this is that one characteristic of "Mn" may have been devel- oped or strengthened, at any rate his patience has never been more pro- nounced than it was as he labored to instill a little knowledge of football into this group. One of the first changes in the physical plant was the construction in 1924. of the Harvey D. Gibson Gymnasium, then one of the large basketball floors in the state. The acquisition of property and construc- tion of buildings has continued from that time to the present, as the needs of the school have dictated, and the end is not yet. As the Harvey D. Gibson Recreational Center nears completion, plans are being made for a new dormitory. Today's faculty, well-balanced and strong, numbers twenty-seven, the student body has increased to two hundred and eighty-eight of whom seventy-one are boarding students. Four buses daily transport students from a wide territory, F ryeburg Academy is definitely an area school. The college preparatory courses fit students for many colleges, the vocational courses are strong: commercial, home economics, shop, and agriculture give students a basic preparation for further study in those fields. The agriculture course affords much of practical value for those of its students who go back to their own farms, particularly in the dairy '6 6 THE ACADEIVIY BELL industry, since the school maintains a dairy herd of thirty-eight, home economics prepares for better homemaking. Most recently added are the driver-training and art courses. In addition to the usual classroom instruction, the many extra-curric- ular activities provided a Wide range of interests for the students. Ath- letics are for many students with varsity and junior varsity teams in all organized sports, music is an important activity-both in formal and in- formal groups. Dramatics also have a recognized place. Here is the shadow of a man, a man Whose patience, foresight, under- standing, and love, coupled with an intense belief in the innate good- ness of youth, has built F ryeburg Academy into an outstanding school. There has never been a path too long, a task too difiicult for "Mr." if it meant opportunity for some student. To those students and alumni with Whom he has been associated, "Mr.l' and F ryeburg Academy are synonymous. Now after thirty-three years of constant supervision, "Mn" retires. May he and "Mrs" have many richly deserved years of happiness and contentment in their new home on Main Street. As they leave the Acad- emy, the good wishes, love, and respect of hundreds of friends go with them. JOHN L. BERRY 1900-1955 A devoted teacher and 21 loyal friend RALPH M. LARRABEF S1'iz'71r'z' l3.S.

I arose as usual to get my breakfast and start the chores when suddenly from the nearby hen house an uproar cut loose. The noise ended as abruptly as it had be- gun. I decided it was only a watering fountain which had run over and frozen in an odd figure of ice that had frightened the birds. Upon entering the hen house later, I was stunned to find several dead and partially eaten birds scattered about the fioor. The remainder of the birds were huddled together in fright on the roosts. On circling the house, I discovered the sign of the marauder. Etched plainly in the snow was the large track of a dog fox. It was without a doubt the same wise old fox whose devastating sport had cost my neighbor nearly half his brood. The sight challenged me to instant revenge. I realized that my plan of attack should be subtly organized, for I was pitted against one of nature's most cunning wild, red foxes. To trap him seemed to be the best plan, but I was to learn differently later. The following morning, with the smell of snow in the air, I finished setting my traps baited with the remains of the dead birds. When I made my first tour the next day, walking through the small pines at the foot of Oak Hill, I observed with amusement a Snowshoe rabbit racing from his hiding place under a log and up the hill. When I reached the first set, I was dismayed to see it sprung and the bait gone. A small stick neatly dropped on the trigger had sprung the toothed jaws. Moving farther along the line, I found my second and third traps sprung and looted in a similar manner. 34 THE ACADEMY BELL For a full month the fox continued to outwit me by killing hens for pure sport, the cost of which had reached a total of one-hundred dollars or more. It was time to try another plan for Master Reynard's pelt. Only one plan of attack remained-the hunt. A hunt with hounds and shot- gun is a most thrilling pursuit, though often the most tiring for man and beast. The hunter must follow his hounds if he hopes for a kill. He must also try to outwit his prey, and this I chose to do. The trick would be, through woodlore and knowledge of surroundings, to determine the probable path of my quarry and there Wait to apprehend him. Early Saturday morning, just five weeks from the first onslaught, I was setting out in earnest for Master Reynard. With a brace of five hounds in one hand and a shotgun in the other, I came upon his fresh tracks. Releasing the hounds, I contemplated where my first stand would have to be. I headed for a narrow lane running through the meadow. As I sat hidden by a clump of gray birch on the leeward side of the lane, I slowly gained my breath. Shortly I picked up a movement of something to my right. Then like a flash it was gone, for my quarry had spotted me first. I headed for a deer run cutting through Red Brook Swamp. If there's one thing a fox doesn't like it's getting his feet wet in cold weather. I con- cluded that he would follow the ridge of high ground above the marsh. Concealing myself in a thicket, I waited again. The hounds turned in my direction, and I was expectant. Suddenly there he stood cornered by hounds and man, his hackles and brush spread in a defiant defensive stand. Curling his upper lip in fear and hate, he prepared to fight. I fired as he, looking for a means of escape, turned to the dogs. A feeling of joy and pity welled up in me simultaneously. The fox lay there in the prime of life, no longer to see the outside world with which he had been familiar. What had driven him against man? As I reached to examine him, the answer was apparent. An old bullet wound across his Hank showed plainly why he had turned against man and man's friends. GARY BARTON '5 5 Heel or Hero A CHILL wind blew sharply into his face as he sat on a ledge looking westward toward the camp. He was above the timberline where the wind is like a demon-cold, relentless, piercing. It lashed at his face, clothing, and limbs like a whip in the hands of a cruel master, THE ACADEMY BELL 35 chilling him to the bone. He laughed bitterly to himself, crushing his cigarette butt savagely with his boot heel. What would the men back at the club say now? They had always looked down their noses at him and had made him the butt of many of their jokes because he was the only member of the Sportsman's Club who didn't have a trophy of some kind hanging in the club-house lobby. To be looked down upon is hard for any man to take, and this was especially true with this man because he craved popularity. The steward of the club offered to act as a guide for him on a trip to the Canadian Rockies With the hope that he might shoot a mountain goat. He had dreamed of the majestic head of a mountain goat, his mountain goat, hanging over the great stone fireplace at the club which everyone would be sure to see and admire. But now he saw his dream slowly fading. He wished desperately that he might shoot a goat, but there was only one hour left in this last day of his vacation before he must return to camp. He laughed again suddenly and arose. The wind howled anew, blow- ing his hair in four directions, making him look like a war god as he stood silhouetted against the deep red of the late afternoon sky. As he paused there wondering which was the best way to descend the ice- coated rocks, he noticed a patch of snow far below him. Wait! Was it moving? It was! It was a goat! His heart leaped within him, and his throat felt dry. He rubbed his hands together briskly to rid them of their numbness and tried to see the goat through the scope. The wind rocked him back and forth making it impossible to hold his gun steady. He found a sheltered place behind a boulder and took careful aim. The stock felt like ice nestled against his cheek. The cross hairs again touched on the rear of the animal, moved up slightly, and came to rest on the right front shoulder. Wham! The rifle jumped like a thing alive in his hand. With two great bounds the goat was over a knoll and out of sight, leaving behind him a small cloud of rock dust floating in the air where the bullet had struck a foot above his back. The man stood up his hands shaking. What a fool he'd been! He had forgotten that a bullet will rise when fired on an incline. It was dusk as he neared the camp. His head was down, his feet dragged at every step, and his gun was slung carelessly over his shoul- der. As he rounded a bend in the trail, he caught a slight movement out of the corner of his eye. He stopped abruptly and brought his gun to bear Where he had seen the movement, but he saw nothing. Then, slowly he made out the form of a goat which, made bold by the semi-darkness, 36 THE ACADEMY BELL was watching him calmly from an outlook twenty yards ahead. Again the rifle jumped, once, twice, three times but, the third had met only with empty air. The first two shots had hit with a solid "whunk," and the goat, mortally wounded, had toppled over the edge in a death plunge for which these animals are noted. The man ran to the edge of the yawning chasm in time to see his quarry disappear through the ice of the small, deep pond far below. When he got back to camp, he was very surprised to find a mountain goat hanging up outside the cabin door. He ran inside and found the steward smiling at him. It seems that the steward had pretended to be sick and unable to go hunting that morning, but as soon as the man was out of sight, he had hiked three miles to an old Indian trapper's cabin. The Indian had shot two goats the day before and was willing to sell one for twenty dollars. The guide bought the goat and the trapper helped him drag it back to his camp. The man paid the steward for his trouble and the next day they were on their way home. Anyone sitting in the great club-house lobby looking at the mountain goat's head above the fireplace, might have noticed that its donor had very little to say about it. It seemed strange that this man, who was not of taciturn nature, should sit placidly by with downcast eyes while his fellow club members admired and exclaimed over his trophy. On closer observation one might have noticed that this man was sweating slightly under the collar and that his hands were never very still. These symptoms became aggravated immediately upon the entrance of the steward who knew something about the man that kept him constantly worried. A month later the seat occupied by the self-conscious man became conspicuously empty. PETER BOWIE '55 The Spirited Contents "OH, I do hope this cake will turn out well," Betty said, as she lined up all the ingredients on the counter. Betty was about to bake a birthday cake for her older brother, who was home for the occasion. After getting the bowl, egg beater, and measuring cup from the cup- board, she turned the oven on and sat down to read while waiting for it to heat up. She glanced over the counter again to be sure she had every- thing ready. Yes, there was everything, even the baking powder which she had unfortunately forgotten in her last cake. She returned to her reading as she sat by the stove and soon dozed off to sleep. THE ACADEMY BELL 37 The ingredients of the cake, which had been sitting obediently on the counter, took advantage of Betty's pan and soon became engaged in a lively conversation. At this moment the Sugar piped up with a haughty spirit, "I am one of nature's necessities, and I am a lover of all people. How many times has 'So and So' gone into a store to choose something which would otherwise have been off the list had I not been in its contents? I am sweet, yes, very sweet, and I consider myself more important than you minor ingredients." She then withdrew with a shrug. Butter then stepped in to have her say. "Indeed, haughty Sugar, you have a high ideal, I assure youg but mind me, don't you forget that mil- lions of faces glisten at the sight of me when I am about to be spread on a piece of bread or to be put into cakes or other foods. Ah! I know who the mischief maker is that drives humans to the dentist. Do you ever catch me doing anything like that? I guess not!" "That is right, my dear Butter," the Flour chimed in. "Sugar is a deceiver, and she should not be so high spirited. I mean to be just in say- ing we are all equal." "Ha, ha!" chirped the Eggs, nearly cracking with laughter. "You do make me laugh, Sugar. I agree with my friends, Butter and Flour, that you are too conceited. Don't I find just as important a place in the home as you? The menu generally calls for me in all lines. Adieu my pet, adieuf' "Tut, tut," sputtered the milk. "What would any of you do if I weren't here to unite you all? You would all be in a fine state of affairs I must say. I will not discuss my importance as you are so ignorant." The Baking Powder spoke proudly. "Betty knew that I was the aid to her success. Remember how her last cake fell because she didn't use me? What did any of you do to change the situation? I must admit you looked all but there. Remember? If I had been there, the cake would have been a great success. I would have raised it, but without me it was a failure. You see? Bec'ause you are all so indignant, I am going to say my say before I'm baked. You will see what I will do when I am baking. I will rise and rise until I take the conceit out of you." As the Baking Powder finished triumphantly, Betty woke up. "Oh, look how hot the oven is. I must get this cake baked." She went about mixing the batter. "There, have I forgotten anything?" Her eyes viewed all the contents and rested on the can of baking powder. "No, I guess I haven't forgotten a thing." As Betty greased the pan and put the cake in the oven, a little giggle 38 g THE ACADEMY BELL escaped her. "My," she laughed, "What an amusing dream I had. At least it reminded me to be sure to put in the baking powder!" BARBARA BROWN , '56 My Little Jeep My little jeep goes peep, peep, peep, As she carries me on my way. I run down the stairs, forgetting my cares, While she sputters and spurts so gay. I put in the clutch, she doesn't mind much, For she simply jumps at the start. With one blast of steam from dear old machine, She coughs and comes to a stop. I give her a chaserg shels oil' like a pacer, With a twist, a jump and a hop. Oh no! the school turn, I lean to the stern, I have made it with God to thank. Now, for the brake, take hold for Pete's sake, But I run head on to a bank. I jump, clear the mass, and make it to class, I go with a bound and a leap. When you see a flash, and then hear a crash, It'll be me and my little jeep. NANCY SCHILDBERG '56 Sylvan THERE he was! Sylvan was standing on the hill gazing intently down into the pasture. His neck was finely arched and the wind blew his sil- very mane askew. He was a picture of grace and beauty. His coat was as black as jet, and his mane and tail were silvery white like silken, silver threads. The delicate hooves shone in the sun like polished ebony. He was about sixteen hands high and slight in build, Which gave him a streamlined look. He had small legs which carried him over the ground at an amazing rate of speed. They were surprisingly strong and very deceptive in their appearance. His neck, forever proudly arched, THE ACADEMY BELL 39 gave him a decided air of dignity. His head was delicate, and he had a very wide forehead with big, velvety brown eyes set far apart. This was my Sylvan, five year old Arabian, out of Silver by the Black. MARGARET MARKIIAM '58 Ziggie AN experience which opened my eyes to the world around me began one summer when I landed a job with a construction company owned and operated by Polish workers. Most of the men who had been in the coun- try for a period of only two to five years had been in Poland during the oc- cupation by the Germans. By listening, I learned the tragedy of losing their loved ones, of terrible human suffering and the loss of their beloved country. Of the entire group the most outstanding individual was Ziggie Kuzak, a handsome, rugged, blond fellow. To work with Ziggie was a nightmare, for whatever you did he demanded more. Zig was the fore- man of a crew that everyone considered the best. The first day I worked with Ziggie I learned not to pay strict atten- tion to his orders but to analyze the situation, then go after what he wanted. The first thing he said to me was, "Go get some shovels," so I brought back two shovels. Zig had one pet phrase which he would shout when angry, "You are a banana head." When referring to the carpenters, he would say, "Just a bunch of shoemakersf' He liked to see you strug- gle with something heavy so that he could say in a sneering tone, "You strong like skunk." As time went by, I learned to accept his fits of anger, his tyranny over all of us, and to see the real man beneath this domina- ting exterior. I started to learn about Zig's life in Poland bit by bit. He would tell me a little while riding in the truck, or while eating lunch. Eventually I learned that he lived outside of Warsaw on a farm. He and his father would go into Warsaw to sell the produce from their market gardens. I knew Ziggie really loved his homeland by the way he described the mountains, the pastures, and the festivals. The festivals were the times Zig liked best, the brightly colored costumes, the fast polkas, and the vast and varied amount of Polish hams and bread. Ziggie told me how the war hit Poland in 1939, how one night he answered the door to find the Gestapo demanding to see his father who 40 THE ACADEMY BELL came out of the backroom only to be greeted by flaming pistols that ended his life. Zig and his mother were thrown into a truck. After three days of riding, they arrived at their destination, a concentration camp. Two months later his mother died from fear and sorrow. Zig finally broke out of the camp and escaped and later went into the black market by picking up a stray hen whenever the opportunity arose, then trading the hen for cigarettes, and in turn selling the cigarettes for outrageous prices. After the occupation of the American troops Zig got a job driving an officer around, and thus the opportunity arrived to come to America. He told me how excited he was to be going to America, the land of the bountiful, where everyone was rich. Zig said he often pictured himself driving his own car, owning a home, and bringing up his children as Americans. After Zig's long voyage across the sea, he began to work for a farmer in Texas who had made this trip possible. After serving his time for the farmer, he came north to work in a bakery until he saw his chance to make more money by working with the construction company. Zig started at fifty cents an hour which he thought was marvelous. He learned the work fast and after three years became foreman of his own crew. Today he makes two dollars and ten cents an hour. During these years all was not work. He began going to dances and getting dates until he finally met the right girl and married her. After only five years Zig had achieved what some men with greater advantages wouldn't attain in a life time-a nice wife, a wonderful baby, a car of his own, a home of his own, and real happiness. Zig's hopes have come true. ANDREW BOYLE '55 Ringy I FIRST met my little friend on a warm night in August. As I lay in bed, I heard the rattle of a trash can. All summer I had been bothered with pests, so I immediately seized my gun and Hashlight, stepped from the house, and snapped on the light. I first saw a bushy, black and white ringed tail, then a thickly built little body covered with long, coarse, grayish-brown hair, and last of all a pair of brilliantly shining eyes. My supposed enemy was nothing but a small raccoon. I was so angry that I could think only of removing this pest from existence and getting back to my bed. Standing there, the rifle leveled at the tiny head, my heart suddenly softened. Was I the one to put an end to this little crea- THE ACADEMY BELL 4-1 ture because it was creating a disturbance outside my home? I lowered my rifle and waves of shame and pity came over me. Then with the ut- most care, I lifted the little fellow from the ground and carried him into the house. Almost immediately I noticed that his leg was badly twisted. Having had some experience in the care of animals, I was able to straighten, set, and splint the leg. As the little fellow hobbled around on three legs, I became very fond of him. By that time I was tired, and after making sure my friend was comfortable behind the stove, I went back to my bed. When I awoke the next morning, I thought I must have dreamed of my encounter with a raccoon, but as I entered the kitchen I found it was a reality. There was a rustling from one of the cupboards and peeping from the door were two brilliant eyes. He was so playful that from that day on I called him Ringy. Then began a real friendship. I built a large pen for Ringy so he might have room to exercise and play. I soon learned that I did not know half as much about raccoons as I had supposed. My first blunder was to wash Ringy's food for him. The animal must have sensed this, because he would not even touch it. Ringy preferred to catch his own food and carefully wash it, and so I allowed Ringy to wander around as he pleased and to forage for himself. It was a great joy to watch Ringy standing on the rocks in the brook clawing among pebbles and sticks in search of food. How the little fellow could move his paws so fast was a mystery to me. As time passed, Ringy grew rapidly. At the end of a year he had reached full growth. Many children from the neighborhood used to come to see and feed Ringy. In our small town Ringy became almost as famous as Ted Williams in Boston. Ringy was famous not only because he was a domesticated raccoon, but because of the hilarious situations he was always creating. The day the minister came to call, we were having a friendly conversation when all at once I saw a little head peering at me from between the minister's legs. Suddenly the minister let out a terrified cry and jumped from the chair. As I watched the man thrashing about, I could not control my laughter. The minister looked down at his attacker, and suddenly stood there laughing also as Ringy wrapped his tail around the minister's leg. From that day on the minister and Ringy were the greatest of friends. Another incident still very clear is the day Ringy invaded my neigh- bor's flower garden. I was sitting on my front porch when I noticed Ringy disappearing around the corner of my house. I took little notice and continued to read my paper. A few minutes later I heard my tele- 42 THE ACADEMY BELL phone ring. A neighbor down the street wished me to come to her house and take my pet home. When I arrived at the house, I needed no explan- ation. It was very obvious. The air was full of petals from roses, poppies and petunias, and a familiar little form was rolling in the flower garden. Quickly I scooped up Ringy, offered to pay for the damage, made my apologies, and hurried home. As the years went by, I formed the habit of always taking a carrot out to Ringy's pen before going to bed. One night I called his name, but there was no response. As I entered the pen, I saw Ringy lying in a far corner and thought he must be sleeping. So I put the carrot beside him and prepared to leave, when suddenly I heard a faint cry. As I stooped down beside him, Ringy nestled his head in my hand and passed away into an endless sleep. Seated there, the little body nestled close to me, my mind wandered back to an August night years before. ALFRED EDGECOMB '56 Nature's Beauty and lVlan's Destruction ONE of my fondest joys as a child was skipping and hopping through the green fields and woods exploring and discovering things which were new to me. One particular place I have loved and will always remember is a moss-covered path which leads from our cattle yard into the thick forest. This place is the most beautiful when autumn is in all its splendor. To reach my secluded spot, one must go through the barnyard and cross the fence leading to this place which nature has made rarely beau- tiful. Overhanging the path is a gigantic beech with leaves as yellow as Bessie's butter, and if you take heed you will notice the maple with its flaming leaves as red as fire. There are many specimens of wild life to observe as one proceeds on his way-the chipmunk's chatter, the quail's flutter, the fleeting deer that pauses for a moment and then is gone like a flash of white lightning, the frightened rabbit that scurries when you approac'h, a tiny fluffy ball of feathers belonging to a baby rob- in that had attempted flight and failed, and flitting bluebirds that swarm around you when you leave the shadows and appear in the sun. After passing numerous knolls and bends, one will approach a brook tumbling and laughing over the stones. On the other side is a bubbling spring which seems to emerge from nowhere. Up and over the bank lies a green pasture, an ideal spot where a child can romp and play. The pungent fragrance of honeysuckle is everywhere. Almost as far THE ACADEMY BELL 43 as the eye can see is tall grass intermingled with flowers swaying and bobbing in the breeze. In the background rises the majestic mountains wearing clothes touched by Mother Nature's wondrous hand. This place so beautiful and peaceful has been a haven for my family and other dear ones as a favorite picnic spot. On a hot day lunching be- neath the trees on the soft, cool moss is a delight. But the whole scene has changed. Because of greed for financial gain, man has ruined a great deal of the perfection and beauty. The timber has been cut, and the little path and brook are filled with sticks and un- derbrush. The wild life still inhabits the woods. Even the pasture that used to be so unspoiled is now filled with underbrush where grass can no longer sprout from the earth. It is both alarming and tragic that nature's forests can be so rapidly destroyed by the timber saw, one of the woods' greatest enemies. Now as I wander over this devastated by-way, the animals look at me with sad little eyes and seem to say, "Oh dear! Such a terrible thing has happened to our homes and forest! Why must men treat us so un- kindly when We would never dream of harming any thing that they hold dear?" SYLVIA SNIITH '55 The Typist I know that I will never be, As fine a typist as Marie. Marie whose nimble fingers fly As I sit by and sadly sigh. Her accuracy is hard to beat, Watching her type is really a treat. She seems to know just what to do, I really envy her, don't you? She types with ever growing speed As vainly I my copy read. She never falters her hurrying pace, It seems as though she is running a race. She quickly does her lessons daily, Then glances at us all quite gaily. And I-, I know I'll never be As fine a typist as Marie. BEVERLY MILLS '56 44 THE ACADEMY BELL A Trip Through Storyland HAVE you ever been to medieval England, to ancient Rome, to Rich- mond, Virginia, during the Civil War, or to the top of Mt. Everest or Annapurna? I have-many times. Books have taken me there. Through books I have met many interesting people and learned of many adventurous periods and colorful places. Come with me while I take you on a trip through storyland. Let us go to medieval England. In Ivanhoe I saw the splendor and cruelty of the Middle Ages when love flamed at the point of a sword. I have seen the pageantry and magnificence of a thousand knights in shining armor jousting on the lists. Here is the brilliant and stirring love story of Rowena and Ivanhoeg here is the throb of battle when Robin Hood led an attack on the castle of Front de Boeuf. In Kenil- worth, I pictured the castle as a mighty citadel overlooking the hamlet. Here, too, is a love story-the heart-warming romance of Amy Rosart and Michael Lambourne. If you want a portrait of 19th century England, look into Pride and Prejudice. Here is the life that a young, unmarried girl led-decorous and dignified, proper and delicate. Where in the modern-day girl will you find the qualities of Elizabeth Bennett? Now let us skip across a continent to ancient Rome to see the cruelty and barbarism of a conquering nation, to see the early Christians strug- gling against an overpowering might for their very survival. I have seen hundreds of Christians herded into the arena and the hungry lions turned upon them. I have seen the survival of the fittest as gladiators battled for their lives in the Colosseum. The Robe portrayed the begin- ning of the early Christians and the hardships they endured. The story of Marcellus and Diana and Simon called Peter is interwoven with Biblical history. In this you shrink with fear as the sun is darkened and winds rise on calvaryg you feel pride in your heart when Diane denounces the kingdom of the hated Caligua. In The Silver Chalice you feel the joy that Basil experienced when the Chalice was finished at last. You share too, his bitter disappointment and sorrow at the disappearance of the Chalice. In The Last Days of Pompeii you cringe and shrink in hor- ror as molten lava pours down the mountain-side over the undefended town. Ancient Rome was both wonderful and cruel. France and romantic Paris! But there was a time when Paris was any- thing but romantic. This was the period of the French Revolution when THE ACADEMY BELL 4-5 blood ran like wine. This was the time of the guillotine when nobility was killed like so many flies. In The Tale of Two Cities remember the angry crowd storming the Bastille and thrilling in Wondermentg hear the conspiracy of the "Jacques,' and ask yourself if anyone can be so cruel, see the heads of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI being paraded around the streets and gaze appalled at the spectacle. See the audacity of the Scarlet Pimpernal as he furtively eludes the guards at the city gates of Paris. Here is a tale that makes your blood run cold-a tale of nobility who tried to escape the clutches of the rabble who took over the govern- ment. To see Paris in this period may make you change your mind about its being romantic, but I hope not. We go now to see the South before the Civil War that broke its heart and spirit. Gone With The Wind is a dramatic way to become acquainted with the South. Here we observe the utter destruction of beautiful plantations by the Yankees, and many families dying of starv- ation. House Divided portrayed the anxious feelings of the families at home. This is the Currain family, Southern aristocrats who discovered that they were relatives of Abraham Lincoln. Some of the Currain fam- ily had sunk to degradation and poverty. Here we feel the anxiety and worry of the Womenfolk left at home. Here are the fetid, stinking hos- pitals of the South Where men screamed in bodily pain because there were no anesthetics, and Wounded soldiers waited for hours in the hot sun while the flies gathered because there was not enough room in the hospital. The chivalry of the South is gone-"gone with the wind." If you love adventure, then come with me and I will take you to the top of Mount Everest or, if you Wish, Annapurna. You will scale a perpen- dicular Wall of ice with Hillary and Tenzing. You watch Herzog's mit- tens slide down the mountainside and sense the excruciating pains of frozen limbs. Here is excitement at its highest pitch as Hillary and Ten- zing climb the last few yards to the summit of the highest mountain in the world. Here are nerves taut and strained as in Annapurna the expedition races against the forces of nature to descend the mountain- side before the monsoon strikes. Now let us go 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea into far-reaching depths to explore the sunken city, Atlantis, to fight with Captain Nemo and his men against an onslaught of octapi. We are enraged by the ruthless destruction of ships at sea by the "Nautilus," Perhaps you prefer your seafaring adventures to take place on the surface of the ocean. If so I think Kon Tiki will interest you immensely. These are the 46 THE ACADEMY BELL men under Thor Hyerdahl who crossed the Pacific on a raft. Their adventures, both serious and humorous, are gripping stories. Good reading of romances, realistic novels, tales of adventure, and historical narratives are realms of gold because they open doors to new worlds, new friends and new and valuable ideas. PHYLLIS WARREN '56 The Chase IT was midnight. The bright, clear, silver moon rode high in the sky casting a silver brilliance over the pine studded hills and the rangy New England farm house and out buildings. All was peaceful. The c'attle were asleep in the pasture and Don, the collie, lay relaxed at the porch door. It was at this door that Jack, the rabbit, decided to leave Molly and their six bunnies at home to forage for a snack in farmer Currie's gar- den. He sampled the turnip, the little beets, and the Swiss chard. While munching on a delicious tender carrot, an unmistakeable scent of his terrible enemy, the weasel, came to him. He leaped over the stonewall and, like a dart, drove across the field toward the road leading to the tim- ber lot. When he reached the low barbed wire fence, he squeezed cautiously through and looking back apprehensively sighted the enemy hot on his trail. Now Rack, being a small bodied, ferocious, bold, and bloodthirsty creature, would like nothing better than to sink his sharp fangs into J ack's throat and suck his blood. So Jack again lit out across the fields toward the brush in great leaps trying to loose his scent. He ran through Endove Bay and on to the wood road. There he scrambled through a thick brier patch emerging somewhat winded. To his dismay he saw the weasel was gaining on him. The distance between them began to lessen frighteningly, and Jack became really desperate. Thoughts fiashed through his mind of Molly at home with the children, of how it would feel to have Rack's teeth sink into him. Then in his extremity he re- membered that in the north orchard in the stonewall where he used to play was a hole with only one entrance and loose rocks balanced delicate- ly over it. The weasel was a mere ten yards behind him when Jack came in sight of the one chance to save his life. He scaled the wall in one terrified leap and with his heart in his mouth performed a backward summersault THE ACADEMY BELL 47 and dove into the hole, at the same time hitting a rock which rolled across the aperture. Jack was now trapped safely inside. Soon he be- gan to dig his way out to return home to Molly and their bunnies. Rack, however was not so lucky. He couldn't stop at once and the roc'k fell on him crushing out his life. "This is the last time," Jack said to himself, "that I'll ever go out on a moonlight night." JAMES CURRIE '55 Comeback THIS is the training quarters for professional boxers. Here in the great city gymnasium there are youths in their late teens, eager, ambitious, not knowing what lies ahead of them but hoping to net the huge profits which go to a few representatives of this business. They are busily en- gaged in jumping rope, sparring sessions, or punching the heavy punch- ing bag. On the sidelines watching is the man commonly known as the "has been," the once great fighter now almost blind with a definite sense of futility about him. His ears are cauliflowered and his nose flattened. If somebody were to talk with him, he would find his vocabulary limited and augmented by numerous oaths. The steady rat-tat-tat of the light punching bag may be heard as some future Joe Louis bangs enthusiastically at it. The place reeks with per- spiration. Many types of spectators may be seen on the sidelines. Some of them are perfectly respectable according to modern standards. Others compel a person to wonder from where in the slums they emerged or how many sentences they have served in a penal institution. All appear to have one bond in common-the desire to observe, to engage in, or to make profit from boxing. Two men Walk through the gym-one tall, lean, athletic and about thirty-three and handsome but for a deep scar over his left eyeg the other short, robust and fifty years of age with the definite air of a veteran in his field. The older man has a kind face, but there is an extreme aggres- siveness in his eyes and manner. They enter the private ofiice at the rear of the gym. "I have got to have some money, Frank," exclaims the younger man. "You know what happened to the other great ones that tried to come back. Look at Louis. Just last week Robinson took a beating at the hands of a 'second-rater.' Take my advice and stay in retirement," counseled 48 THE ACADEMY BELL Frank Martini, the older man and the former manager for his companion and ex-boxer. Tony Barbello had been the light-heavyweight champion of the world for six years until his retirement three years ago. He had remarked at that time that he was one of those who was clever enough to retire while he was in good condition physically, mentally, and financially. Tony had been as clever in that respect as he had been in the ring. It was thought that he would become a success in any business venture that he undertook, but complications arose. His wife Maria had been at- tacked by one of the most treacherous of all diseases, cancer. Displaying its ugly forces shortly after his retirement from the ring, it spread rapid- ly causing great physical and mental pain to his wife. Tony had been deeply affected by his wife's illness. Besides causing him great mental anguish, it also cut into the funds that he had saved. Medical bills soon wiped out his savings and left him stranded. The only means of acquir- ing aid quickly that he knew of besides c'harity Was the prize ring. Thus he had decided to resume his ring career. After a long deliberation Tony turned to walk out of the ofiice. As he did so, he turned again and said, "Okay, if you won't manage me, I will get somebody who will." "Just a second, Tony. If you are determined to fight again, I will man- age you." Thus the ring career of Tony Barbello was resumed. He trained ear- nestly for several weeks. Each evening he visited his wife at the hospital. Each evening she tried to persuade him to give up his plan to return to the ring. Each evening he was polite but firm in his resolution. He posi- tively refused to surrender his idea. The several weeks of training in the local gym passed rapidly, and the date of his first fight along the comeback trail arrived. It was obvious to those about Tony that, although he had remained in good condition during his period of ring in-activity, he was not the boxer that he once had been. His reHexes were not so sharp, his foot action was slower. A solid punch is indeed helpful but not a necessity. His opponent was to be Clyde Koback, an old atrialhorsev of thirty- six years who had long before lost much of his ability. All that remained of him was a sharp punch and a knowledge of the boxing style of many fighters. This had aided him in withstanding some terrific battles. He had fought Tony ten years ago and was promptly knocked out in two rounds. Tony at fight time was a solid four to one choice to beat the aging THE ACADEMY BELL 49 veteran. He was expected to knock out this hulk of a former prominent boxer in less than seven rounds. He felt as confident of himself as the sportswriters and fans at ringside felt upon entering the ring. After a few brief instructions from his manager, Tony heard the Warn- ing buzzer. The second slipped his mouthpiece in place, and the bell rang announcing the start of the first round. Tony met Koback at the center of the ring, threw out a series of light left jabs, and clinched. After the referee broke them, Koback threw a punch which Tony found impossible to escape. The punch connected with the point of his chin. This was to form the pattern of the remaining part of the round. Tony was bleeding from a cut over his left eye when he returned to his corner following round one. His manager, usually calm, was excited. He cau- tioned him to avoid Koback's dangerous blows. Even at this early time it was evident to the fans and experts alike that Tony was not the boxer that he was previous to his retirement. His "ring-rustiness" was apparent. In the next round Koback shook him with another vicious punch. By this time many of the fans were favoring Koback to win the bout. Some of the "fans" at ringside were screaming for blood, his blood. By the end of the fourth round his manager had now turned against him. Realizing that the days of the "Navyboat ride" were over, he was angry with him. Many of the fans, remembering Tonyls need to win and accumulate some money, remained with him in spirit. They regarded him as their "sentimental favorite." Tony was knocked down for the second time in his career in the seventh round. The previous time had been as a young boxer when he had been overmatched and yet had managed to win. He heard the referee count over him, "Six, seven, eight." He started to rise. He managed to assume a vertical position. Koback was immediately in pursuit. Before the round ended, he was down again. This time he was up at five but took a compulsory eight count. At the end of this round even the "die- hard sentimentall' fans had turned on him in their pursuit of a victim. Only his sec'ond remained to attend him, and he was there only because it was required by rule. In the eighth round, Tony observing the preceding developments, be- came angry and proceeded to attempt to win this bout by a knockout. As frequently happens when a prize lighter becomes angry, he was totally ineffective. Koback, tiring and showing his age, clinched regularly and by this action was able to escape all of Tony's dangerous blows. The fight ended in much the same fashion. When the decision was an- 50 THE ACADEMY BELL nounced, it was a unanimous verdict in favor of Koback. The wall had been too high. Tony, tired, discouraged, and defeated, returned to his dressing room. He took a shower, had his cut attended, and left the auditorium alone. No reporters were pursuing him to obtain a statement. They were all in the dressing room of the other contestant. As he left the auditorium and walked along the cold winter street, he heard the newsboy calling out on the corner directly in front of the building. "Extra! Extra! Rocky Williams to make big comeback." He bought a paper and read the beginning of the article. It stated that Rocky Williams, former great heavyweight champion, was to make a come- back after a year and a half of retirement. After reading this, he folded the newspaper, dropped it into the nearby waste can, and proceeded homeward.

We students seem to realize the value of these concerts, for the attendance has increased over the last year. We also enjoy hearing clas- sical music and comparing it with popular music. It is amazing how of- ten a theme is heard from a classical or semi-classical recording which is familiar to all through popular music.

When Laurie Hunting- THE ACADEMY BELL 55 ton, a college sophomore taking a psychology course, comes home and declares her family ua bunch of psychological knots," things start boom- ing. Her father, played by Ed Hammond, usually very jocular, has be- come touchy and petulant under the tension of losing an automobile dealership to his hated rival, Ted "Deadwood" Wood. Mrs. Hunting- ton, portrayed by Molly Mansur, is over anxious and nervous about a tea to which she had invited Walola Breckenridge, Joyce Cram, and sev- eral other important ladies from the community. Wally, Laurie's young- er brother, is in the dog house because he insists on going "steady" with cute Joan Wood, "Deadwood's" daughter. Laurie, confident that she can straighten out her family's lives, sends them all scurrying about looking for their "energy peaks." The house be- comes a jumble of notebooks, and everyone is taking psychology tests of every degree.

PAUL WATSON '55 Glee Club THIS year the boys' and girls' choruses met in the library for glee club once a week. They worked under the superb direction of Mr. Frank Petillo. At the Christmas Vespers they sang a few numbers preceding the traditional Christmas pageant and furnished the musical background for the pageant. Mr. Petillo selected a special chorus to combine with the North Con- 56 THE ACADEMY BELL way Choral Society for a Christmas concert in December. I am sure We will all agree that beneficial experience was gained by the Friday eve- ning rehearsals and the performance itself. The Glee Club is now preparing for the annual spring concert. The choruses of Bridgton and Potter Academies will join ours and will aid us in making it a grand success. Thank you, Mr. Petillo, for your efficient supervision. ETHEL BRIGGS '56 Combined Christmas Concert THE Selected Chorus of Fryeburg Academy, combined with the Eastern Slope Chorus, gave its annual Christfmas Concert in the Conway Metho- dist Church on December 20. As in years past, this concert was under the able direction of the Academy's music instructor, Mr. Petillo. Some of the selections sung by the choristers were "The Hallelujah Chorus," "Christ was born on Christmas Day," "Carol of the Bells," and "Veni Emmanuel," plus the traditional Christmas carols. The girls' sextet, singing, "Peter go ring dem bells," was a delightful addition. The group would like to express its appreciation to Mr. Petillo for the opportunity of participating in this inspirational program. ANN BUCKLEY '55 Prize Speaking THE annual prize speaking contest was held in the Fryeburg Congrega- tional Church at 8 P.M. on February 25, 1955. The program contained selections of satire, humor, mystery, sympathy, and loyalty. Inter- spersed with the speeches were songs sung by the boys' quartet and the girls' quintet. Nancy Shaw entertained the audience with "A Theme from the Warsaw Concerto" and "Penthouse Serenade." The speeches were as follows: Boo! Hoo! I Want My Mom ..... ....

MARX' Lou DALL1 NGER '56 Fifth Annual Concert-1954 THREE schools again participated in the combined spring concerts this year, as Potter Academy of Sebago joined Bridgton Academy and F ryeburg Academy. The concerts were presented May 2 at Fryeburg, May 5 at Potter, and May 9 at Bridgton. The first two songs, sung by the entire choral group, were "For All the Saints" and "Holy Lord of All." The Fryeburg Academy girls' trio- Darla Jewett, Sally Reynolds, and Elizabeth Walker-then sang, "Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes," "The Alphabet," and finally, "Kentucky Babe." Next in the program came Potter Academy's mixed chorus with, "Hear My' Prayer, O God" and "The New Ashmolean Marching Society and Student's Conservatory Band." Following Pot- ter, came the popular Bridgton Academy "Barbershoppers" who sang, "Sweet Adeline" and "Floatin' Down to Cotton Town." After the "Bar- bershoppersv came "By the Bend of the River" and "My Bonnie Abroadl' by the entire choral group. After intermission the entire choral group sang a very impressive selection, QA Tribute to Rombergf' The Frye- burg Academy band played "Eh, Cumpariw and "April in Portugal." The B.A. songsters sang "Song of the Swampsw and "Dry Bones." Fol- lowing, came the Potter Academy boys' chorus with "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" and "Let All Things Now Living." The concerts closed with "God of Our Fathers" sung by the entire combined chorus. We are all extremely grateful for the privilege of the excellent in- struction of Mr. Petillo. We thank you, Miss Leighton, for your fine accompaniment.

DUANE WATSON '57 Freshman Dancing OUR three dancing lessons, supervised by Mrs. Alice Dudley, were con- cluded with a dance in the gymnasium. The music by Mrs. Dudley was for square dancing. Refreshments of coca-cola were served. Initiation of the freshmen which was held before the dance was viewed by most of the students. A good time was had by all. The chairman of the dance committee was Robert Solari, assisted by Ann Buckley, Helen Leavitt, Martha Gerry, Robert Graustein, and James Osgood. The chaperones were Mr. and Mrs. Berry, and Mr. and Mrs. Jerome. STEPHANIE COUGHLIN '58 Sadie Hawkins Heyday SADIE Hawkins got off to a good start Thursday when the varsity and junior varsity girls both won over Bridgton High School. Thursday evening a buffet supper was enjoyed by the Fryeburg Academy students and their guests. After supper the moccasin dance was held on the Acad- emy rink. Following the moccasin dance the varsity boys played St. Patrick's High School at the gym. Unfortunately, we lost that game. Friday, school closed at noon, but because of a lack of participants the ski races were postponed. The skating thrived, however, and for the first time an ice show was held on the F. A. rink. The show, under the direction of Gail McSherry, and with Stanley Fitts as Master of Cere- -monies, was composed of five acts, all of which were performed by Academy students except for one specialty act which was figure skating by a grammar school eighth-grader, Lorraine Kenerson. 111 Ski Team. 121 Freshman Basketball.

The decorations-snowmen, candy canes, and a ceiling of snowflakes-were designed by Sally Reynolds. Just before intermission, the coronation was held. Donna Rogers was crowned queen by Mr. LaCasc'e. Her crown was carried by three-year- old Spring Page. The queen's attendants were Sally Reynolds, Kay Fernald, Patricia Madsen, and Ann Buckley. After the Coronation, the grand march was led by the queen and her escort. Then the dancing proceeded to the music of Lloyd Rafnell's orchestra. In charge of the activities were the G. A. C. members with Mrs. Nickerson as adviser and Donna Rogers as chairman, and the Y-Teens with Mrs. Merrifield as adviser and Molly Mansur as chairman. GAIL MCSHERRY '56 Assemblies IF you should happen to be driving past F. A. when all at once the doors burst open discharging a happy brigade of Academyites, you can decide that the students are on their Way to an assembly program. The Student Council selects six assemblies from the School Assembly Service for each school year. To date we have had only two of these programs, but we are anticipating the four which will follow. The first assembly this year was William Lloyd Davis, ventriloquist extraordinary. He gave a masterful presentation of ventriloquism and humor. His talking doll, Sammy, gained the love of the students, while Mr. Davis amazed them by drinking a glass of milk and throwing his voice at the same time. In the middle of January the students were entertained by Hamish MacGregor and Catherine MacFarlane, a husband-wife team both born THE ACADEMY BELL 65 in Scotland, Who presented a program they called, "A Wee Bit of Bon- nie Scotlandf' Mr. MacGregor charmed us with humor, folk songs, bal- lads, the violin, and bagpipes, and his Wife accompanied him on the piano and in the traditional Highland Fling. Everyone greatly enjoyed this talented team who gave us an assembly which was historical as well as enjoyable. The students appreciate these assemblies, for they break the monot- ony of regular classes day after day and provide excellent entertainment. KAY FERNALD '55 Art THE art class proved so successful last year that many of the old mem- bers returned to continue their study under the ample direction of Mr. Jerome in an Art II class this year. The second-year class has Worked entirely on projects of their own origin which proved very interesting and offered a Wide variety of mate- rials and media. Some of the materials used which were not introduced last year were oil paints, wood prints, plaster casting, and sculpturing. The Art I class was introduced to the basic fundamentals of art much the same as last year. Both classes continued their ideas and introduced a nativity scene on the campus at Christmas. This scene consisted of three shadow boxes depicting the story of the birth of Christ. The boxes were lighted at night and added much to the Christmas spirit. We ex- tend our thanks to Gardner Norton and Mr. Heartz who worked long hours to help prepare the scenes. Under the careful guidance of a competent and unusually patient in- structor, both classes have been very successful this year, and it is hoped that this success will continue in future years. PAUL WATSON '55 Y-Teens President MOLLY MANSUR Co-Vice Presidents SALLY REYNOLDS SUSAN WEIST Secretary GAIL MCSHERRY Treasurer DONNA ROGERS Adviser Mus. PRISCILLA MERRIFIELD Y-Teens, the teen-agers of the Young Women's Christian Association, 66 THE ACADEMY BELL is the largest girls' organization at Fryeburg Academy. The meetings are designed to instruct, as well as to entertain, the members. For the first meeting of this year, Mrs. Merrifield, our adviser, spoke to us about the meaning of Y-Teens and the opportunities offered us as members of this world-wide organization. During the football season, Mr. Brown attempted to teach us the tech- niques of football. He explained the various signs and penalties and ex- plained also the field. The remaining games were much more enjoyable as we had an idea what was happening. Our next meeting was an exciting swap and auction event. Each mem- ber made a swap with another if she wished to, acc'ording to the value of the article. The few remaining items were auctioned off by our marvel- ous auctioneer, Mary Lou Dallinger. For Christmas we gave potted plants to the hospital, to local shut-ins, and to our council member, Mrs. Elroy O. LaCasce. We also had a par- ty for the girls of the first three grades of the Fryeburg Grammar School. We joined the children in games and Christmas carols, but the greatest moment of the program was the visit from Santa Claus, alias Sheila Buckley. Each child expressed her Wants and wishes to Santa, who presented them with ice cream to complete the party. The Y-Teens and the Girls' Athletic Council sponsored the annual Sadie Hawkins Heyday. Everyone worked hard on the appropriate and Very attractive decorations. Recently We have been working on a panel discussion with boy and girl relations as the subject. Along with this discussion we are making plans for the annual Penny Carnival. Remembering our past years as Y-Teen members, we have had many enjoyable and happy times and have learned to understand better the meaning of democracy. HELEN LEAVITT '55 Future Homemakers of America Future Homemakers of America Fryeburg Academy Fryeburg, Maine February 18, 1955 Dear Helga, Your very interesting letter about your F. H. A. activities in Belgium THE ACADEMY BELL 67 was read to our members at the last meeting. They were very anxious to let you know about the work We are doing as you requested. We elected our officers in the spring, and they were installed at the first meeting of the new year. They were: President PATRICIA LEAVITT Vice-President JAN ET GRAY Secretary KAY FERNALD Treasurer DONNA ROGERS Historian DIAN MORGAN The classes also elected girls to represent them in the meetings. They are: Freshman SALLY MURRAY Sophomore SHIRLEY SKINNER Junior SUSAN DOUGLAS Senior ANN MCDONALD Under the direction of these girls and our Chapter Adviser, but with all the sixty members participating, we began our Work for the year. We had our goal clearly in mind. It was: To learn to live better today so that our family life might be better tomorrow. With the Christmas spirit in our blood, we assembled gay packages to send to Korea in hopes that someone's Christmas would be happier. Twelve of our members went to District E meeting in November. We made a creditable showing, and everyone had a very enjoyable eve- ning. Another trip which we look forward to is State Convention in Augusta in May. About thirty-five of our members plan to attend. To add money to our treasury, a week was spent by the junior and sen- ior girls in making pretty organdy Christmas aprons to sell. Another project was selling chances on a Valentine cake. Both these projects were successful and our treasury expanded. Some of the money was donated to The March of Dimes, Gym Fund, and Red Cross. During National F. H. A. week each woman teacher was given the flower of our order, the rose. Also a display was placed in the library. To impress safety on the student body, February 14--18 was set aside as school safety week. Many attractive posters were put in the corridors, and a tric'ky slogan was put on the morning notice each day. On the night of Open House, there will be a Mother and Daughter Banquet for the junior and senior girls and their mothers. Another ban- Student Council Girls' Chorus Y-Teens Latin Club THE ACADEMY BELL 69 quet which many of our boys and their fathers look forward to with de- light is the Father and Son Banquet. The sophomore girls cook and serve both these meals. We all wish it were possible for you to be our guest for a week. You would never have a dull moment with all the classes busy. The fresh- man girls are learning to be better family members both in actions and appearance. The sophomores are sewing beautiful wardrobes which they will model in the Style Show. The junior and senior girls are talk- ing a course in Home Improvement. You would be very much interested in the furniture they have refinished. Your noontime meals could be eaten in the Home Economics room where about fifty students are served each day. Good luck in your future Belgium F. H. A. activities. Your pen pal, PATRICIA LEAVITT '56 Debating Club LCDEBATING club-they didn't have a debating club at F. A. last year did they?" you ask. No, we didn't have a debating club last year. But under the able di- rection of Mrs. French, one was formed this fall. Full of enthusiasm we set out to "face the music." In our case it was a table in Mr. Blaich's office piled high fit seemed to usj with reading material. One November afternoon found sixteen debaters and chaperones on the way to Bates College in Lewiston. Here we attended panel dis- cussions, learning much from them. In the evening we attended a debate between Bates and Bowdoin. This proved to be the highlight of the day. We later had some practice debates among different members of the club. Then came preparations for the big event! These were tryouts for the team. The question for debate is: "Resolved: that the federal govern- ment should initiate a policy of free trade among nations friendly to the United States." A debate open to the public is to be held on March 24- in the library. Although we have done no debating with outside schools this year, we hope to next year. -3. . of--5' . , .N Y V F tx, YV T R T4e-'1..-7i.?1N- if gg. WN "ff be-sk - agp ,, HX X, 0-1, ,- V C w - A. f .

Gibson Memorial Recreational Center ALUMNI, students, and friends of Fryeburg Academy, during grad- uation week 1955, will be privileged to visit and inspect the latest addi- tion to the many line facilities which Fryeburg Academy has to offer. This is the new Harvey D. Gibson Memorial Recreational Center which has been erected this past year on Bradley Street. The Center was built by a fund provided during Mr. Gibson's life- time. The contributions of students and alumni will be used to furnish the structure and to renovate the former gymnasium as a recreational center for the girls. Now for a tour of the building. As one enters the glass doors, he steps into a lobby, on his left is the music room, strikingly enclosed by glass and brick with a fireplace on the back wall. Off the music room is a kitchenette which will be useful as a refreshment stand. Entering the huge gymnasium, one sees immediately the thirty-foot stage at the further end. Roll-away bleachers on the left wall face the main court with the two practice courts across it. Locker rooms, showers, store rooms, first aid room, referees' room, and an office for the athletic director complete the Center. THE ACADEMY BELL 71 To appreciate the true beauty of the Center, one should pay a personal visit to it. We are proud of this Center and hope the future students of Frye- burg Academy will be as proud and appreciative in using it as we have been in Working for it and watching its progress. HEI.EN LEAVITT '55 MoL1.Y MANSIYR '55 Latin Club Consul DUANE WATSON Consul Secunda MARIl.X'N BENNETT Scriptor JUDITH STEADMAN Quaestor CURTIS IVEY Consiliaria MISS INcAI.Ls THIs has been another busy year for the Fryeburg Academy Chapter of the National Junior Classical League. Perhaps the outstanding new feature of the year was the International Relations project. This was stimulated by hearing Jimmy Kim, a Korean boy who is attending Bow- doin College, and Rev. Tjaard Hommes who spoke to us on Italy. These talks influenced us to send boxes of clothing, play equipment, and school supplies to both Italy and Korea. Nearly all the members have subscribed to the "Torch" and the "Auxi1ium Latinum" periodicals. The first club meeting was initiation. During the day the initiates Wore a huge earring in the right ear to signify the rank of a slave. Dur- ing the meeting they Wore towels instead of togas. Some of the stunts were: illustrating a Roman Wedding, Perseus rescuing the maiden by killing the dragon, Daphne and Apollo, a gladiatorial combat, Daniel and the Lions, Medusa with snakes for hair, Caesar's remains, and such. After the humorous part of the program, the impressive J. C. L. candle- light initiatory ceremony was held. The second regular meeting, the Christmas program, conducted by the Latin I class, was very impressive. Against a mural of the city of Bethlehem, the students in costume portrayed the Christmas story in pantomime with readings from the Bible in Latin by Curtis Ivey, in English by Frankie Buckley, and a chorus singing Christmas carols in Latin. 72 THE ACADEMY BELL At the February meeting, the Latin I class showed a beautiful movie in color of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. This was followed by a TV pro- gram, Grauchus Marcus in "You Bet Your Togaf' At another special meeting we heard Miss Alice Colby of Denmark, Maine, speak on her travels in Italy when she was a Fulbright scholar attending the Sorbonne University. It is a precedent now that our March meeting be a Circus Maximus in the gym, open to all students in school. This includes a processional of consul, senators, and slaves, sacrificing an animal on the altar, juggling, wrestling, chariot racing, fighting with nets, and other games based on Roman customs. During Open House at the Academy, the parents and friends are given an opportunity to view an exhibit of the many projects that the Latin classes have developed during the year. By means of these, the students become more interested to learn of various phases of Roman life. A Roman banquet in May, with all members in appropriate costumes, climaxes an interesting and distinctive program for the year for the members of the J. C. L. DUANE WATSON '57 Saco Valley F armers' Club THE Saco Valley F armers' Club, formerly the Future Farmers of America, has had an interesting and profitable year. Last May we held our annual Father and Son Banquet. A most de- licious supper was served by the Future Homemakers of America. Mr. Allen W. Manchester gave a very interesting talk about Iran. John Palmer and Gregory Fowler represented our chapter at the annual Gorham Father and Son Banquet. The junior and senior boys participated in the annual spring c'on- test of the Southern District at Monmouth and did creditable work. Seven boys from the chapter attended the State F. F. A. Convention at the University of Maine last June. Last su-mmer George McKeen, Chandler Buzzell, Philip Emery, and David Wadsworth helped serve a chicken barbecue, put on by Waldo Chick at the Oxford County Soil Conservation Field Day at West Paris. Judging teams did creditable work at both Cumberland and Frye- THE ACADEMY BELL 73 burg fairs. The Academy cattle were shown at Fryeburg Fair. The boys trained, prepared, and showed the cattle. One afternoon was spent at Robert Pikels farm at Cornish, where the boys attended a Jersey sale and looked over Mr. Pikels milking par- lor and pen stabling arrangement. Paul Lusky won first place in the Electriiication Contest sponsored by Maine Utilities Companies. This year, as usual, the sophomore, junior, and senior boys attended the annual Trade Show at Lewiston. The boys looked over the newest in farm machinery and attended dairy and vegetable meetings during the da . ,We took part in the winter meeting of the Southern District at West Buxton. David Wadsworth had a perfect score in the rafter cutting contest. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Mr. Earl P. Osgood of Springmont Farms for the promotion of our chapter through the dis- tribution of F. F. A. calendars.

HEARTZ 74- THE ACADEMY BELL OUR chapter, presently consisting of nineteen members, is one of 5 ,064- chapters in a nation-wide organization of Honor Societies. Qualiiications for membership include character, leadership, scholarship, and service. In February and June of each year, juniors and seniors are chosen for membership and initiated. Sylvia Baker, Euleita Barker, Anne Bradeen, Ethel Briggs, Carolyn Clemons, Mary Lou Dallinger, Lorraine Danforth, Charles Flagg, Patricia Leavitt, Gail McSherry, Beverly Mills, Allan Trumbull, and Susan Weist were elected this year. Older members are Gary Barton, Kay Fernald, Gwendolyn Hughey, Helen Leavitt, Molly Mansur, and Paul Weston. Meetings are held twice each month, when the program is provided by a member of the group, a faculty member, or an outside speaker. A picnic or a banquet in June closes the year. The society contributes to the school by preparing school news, work- ing on the alumni list, keeping a school scrapbook of the year's activities, and contributing to various school and local drives for funds. The group was saddened by the death of Mr. Tinker for Whom the Fryeburg chapter was named. He was always genuinely interested in our activities. GARY BARTON '55 Student Council President STANLEY FITT'S Vice-President JAMES OSGOOD Secretary PHYLLIS WARREN Adviser JOHN L. BERRY THE Student Council is made up of nine members who are elected by popular vote of their classes. This year the members are seniors: Stanley Fitts, Edward Hammond, Kay Fernaldg juniors: James Os- good, Phyllis Warren, sophomores: Asa O. Pike IV, Shirley Skinner, and freshmen: Beverly Kenerson and Fred Rogers. The Council directed freshman initiation. This was held over a period of a week, and was climaxed by a square dance. The school assemblies for the next year were chosen by this Council. Collections for March of Dimes and Heart Fund were taken up by the Student Council. THE ACADEMY BELL 75 The annual Talent Show is always sponsored by the Council. This year the show was held in the Gibson Gymnasium on January 1 9. It was very successful and highly entertaining to the student body. This year the Student Council headed the magazine drive. Our goal was to get enough money to buy' an electric scoreboard for the new gym. We are Well on our way with S3 10. 1 8. The Student Council is willing to help the school in any way possible. PHYLLIS WARREN '56 Penny Carnival THE 1954- Penny Carnival was made successful by the combined ef- forts of the faculty and students under the direction of "Pop" Grierson. Great anticipation mounted as the evening of the carnival arrived. The gymnasium took on a new appearance as the numerous booths went up. There were games of chance, a refreshment booth managed by the Home Economics department, and a ring where the Fryeburg muscle bound exhibited their boxing skills. The Student Council held a "cake walkll at which beautifully decorated cakes were awarded to the winners. The Honor Society awarded coupons which could be redeemed at the local places of business for ice cream, gas, etc. Chances were sold on a cedar chest made by Mr. Walker, and it was won by Mrs. Steven Heffner of F ryeburg. The highlight of the carnival was the variety show given twice dur- ing the evening under the direction of Robert Solari, Judith Lloyd, and Beverly Gunter. Faculty advisers for the show were Miss Ingalls and Mrs. French. The Penny Carnival will always be looked forward to as a good time for all. STANLEY Firrs '55 Prizes and Awards EVERY year on Graduation Day numerous prizes and awards are pre- sented to the most deserving students.

GRAY Manager: P,w1.BuuxuAm THE varsity squad had a very unsuccessful 1954- season. The almost constant rain prevented many practice sessions, when the weather cleared, we played our games. In spite of the obstacles, the team had good spirit and good courage. Probably the best example of spirit and fight was shown in an 11-10 victory over So. Paris. We fought from behind in the ninth inning to score 4 times. We won only three games, Norway, So. Paris, and the Alumni. We lost two games to Gould and single games to Kents Hill, Hebron, Nor- way, and Bridgton Academy. James Harvey Won the Turner trophy largely as a result of his stellar play in center field. The 1955 season should be much better as most of the team returns with more experience behind them.

Coach Fox put us through hard practice sessions, and we were ready for the first game despite only three weeks of practice. The team played excellent ball against New Hampton junior varsity and won 24-O. The following week we went to Hebron and won 13-6. The next week proved to be a tough one. We played Kents Hill here on Parents, Day, neither team was able to break the tie of 6-6 despite a 95-yard run by Fryeburg which was nullified. The Norway game brought gray hairs to Coach Fox. Norway was leading 12-6 in the waning seconds of the final quarter. Fryeburgls ball with one second to play-Co-captain and quarterback Jim Osgood threw a long pass to end Stan Fitts for a T.D. Another pass to Fitts by Osgood on official time clinched the game 13-12. Next we went to Ber- lin where the team suffered its first defeat. In the rain and in a mud- covered field, Berlin came out on top 13-6. The season ended with the traditional Gould game at Gould. The boys prepped for the game and seemed ready for it. From the opening seconds to the final whistle, we were in the hole. On the records it shows eleven first downs for Fryeburg, six first downs for Gould, 24 points for Gould, and none for Fryeburg. A quote from Coach Fox, "The boys were over-anxious, but from the records it seemed to me as though We were the better clubf' Out of 34 players only seven are leaving. This year three of our group THE ACADEMY BEITL 83 were mentioned for the All-State squad, they were Stan Fitts, end, Jim Osgood, quarterback: and Jim Currie, center.

We won all the six meets, two of them by perfect scores. Payne has run his last cross country race for Fryeburg this year. In all the four years he's been running cross country, he has been defeated only once, and that was in his very first race. Ever since then he has placed first and broken numerous records. Our own QM mile course record is 10: 59.2. On November 4-, nine fellows went to compete in the State Prep School Meet at Orono. Due to the tremendous rainfall of the preceding days, the course had to be altered and no chance of a new record was possible. Even then the course was very wet and muddy, but regardless of the conditions, our team easily won the third consecutive Prep School Championship title. After the race started, due to a misunderstanding, Raylield went off the course by 20 yards causing him a slight delay in leading the pack. Our team Finished as follows: Ray Payne, first 113: 2.613 Robert Payne, third: Ronald Palmer, fifth: Steve True, sixth: Robert Eastman, seventh: Thomas Saunders, sixteenth: and Charles Reed, seventeenth. Final score: Fryeburg 22, M. C. I. 53, Kents Hill 69, Corinna 85, and Hartland 128. The squad consisted of Ray Payne, Ronald Palmer, Robert Eastman, fi :SQ Q? kk?

Rayfield Payne copped first place in the mile in the dual meets with Kents Hill and Mexico, placing 1 st in the county and state meets. Robert Jones was also a valuable man. In the county meet Jones took first in low hurdles, third in the shot put, second in the javelin throw, and first in the broad jump, accounting for 21 out of the 37 points that F ryeburg made. This meet was held here in Fryeburg. Jones did his best in the javelin throw which was 142 ft. 2 inches. We also won our meet with Mexico. The track team was wholly suc- cessful. The boys did a great job with plenty of spirit. Members of the team were R. Payne, B. Payne, J. Leeman, R. Saw- yer, R. Sterling, E. Buzzell, C. Reed, P. Dussault, W. Harmon, and D. Carlson. RICHARD WITTICH '56 Tennis C 19543 THE Fryeburg Academy tennis team had rather a bad season with a record of three defeats and no wins. However, the team gained a much needed factor, experience, toward the end of the season. This should 86 THE ACADEMY BELL prove very valuable this spring when the team again returns to the clay courts. Under the able coaching of Mr. Larrabee, the team was composed of James Harvey, Marcus Avellon, Robert Solari, and Allan Burroughs. This year the services of Harvey and Avellon will be lost, but a new crop of underclassmen led by veterans Solari and Burroughs should bring a successful season to the record book. Mr. Larrabee deserves a great deal of credit for his hard work in shaping a team for the school. In the first match against Portland High School, Harvey won the only match for F ryeburg. Against Bridgton Academy, Solari and Bur- roughs teamed together to cop their doubles match. In the first match, again with Bridgton, Avellon defeated his opponent in a hard-fought match. Two other matches were scheduled, but rain and lack of time forced cancellation of them. THE RESULTS i F. A. 1 Portland High 5 F. A. 1 Bridgton Academy 5 F. A. 1 Bridgton Academy 5 BRETTON RUSSELL '56 Skiing THIS year skiing activity started early in the fall with frequent trips taken to Stark's Hill for clearing and cutting. A new scenic trail located through the woods has helped to relieve the congestion on the main slope. In addition to this, a slope was also cleared at the bottom of the ledges. Much credit goes to Peter Bowie and his crew for this work. Many enjoyable trips have been experienced on weekends to Cran- more Mountain and Intervale Ski Area. Instruction was given at Cran- more to everyone, racer or beginner. This could not have been experi- enced had it not been for "Mn" to whom our gratitude goes. The varsity ski team has competed in three meets, and a fourth was postponed, the cause-too much snow! In the first race against Dixfield High School, Captain Peter Bowie led our boys to their first victory. Winning the slalom and placing third in the downhill, he set the pace for the rest of the team. Brett Russell copped the downhill and the cross- THE ACADEMY BELL 87 country to take skimiester honors. Skip Eastman placed third in the cross-country, and Dick Breen, Al Burroughs, and Al Thomas showed well in the downhill and slalom. The next race was the State Class "B" Championships. Again led by Peter Bowie, who took both downhill and slalom, the team placed second in the final tally. This was extremely good because we just started nordic events this year. Bruce Bowles was runner-up in the slalom and Brett Russell placed third in the jumping. Dick Breen and Al Burroughs in the alpine events, along with Al Thomas, Skip Eastman, and Dana Dudley, showed well in the nordic events. Lack of experience and illness caused us to make a poor showing in the class "A" Championships as we finished sixth among seven schools. Next year should prove very successful for the team. The loss of Captain Peter Bowie and Allan Burroughs will be a heavy blow, but many under- classmen are rising to fill the gaps. Our success could not have been, however, if it were not for Mr. Jerome, who has done his utmost to aid the team and the club in every way possible. BRETTON RUSSELL '56 Varsity Basketball Coach: CHARLES Fox WITH the return of but three regulars from the last season, Coach Fox, faced his second season as basketball coach with the "sophomore-jinx" leaning and luring and looming all about him. But the good "Doctor" from Lynn, mixing a bit of new material with his own lettermen and adding u dash of that 'fwonder-drug" from Con- necticut and Rhode Island, cured the "jinx" and ended with an almost split season. Those 'fwonder" boys from southern New England, Tom, Jim, Andy, sc'ored, together, 500 of the 789 points compiled by the team in thirteen games. Andy Boyle, to the delight and pleasure of F ryeburg fans, his coach, and fellow colleagues, ran, faked, dribbled, and shot his way through eleven of the team's games for an average of 24.9 points per game. Jim Photopoulos, previously an expert swimmer, earned himself a starting spot by working hard in his first year of basketball. Junior Varsity Softball, 1954 .I unior Varsity Basketball Varsity Cheerleaders Junior Varsity Field Hockey THE ACADEMY BELL 89 "Osgood's Best," Jim, surprised many of his bigger opponents with his ability to cover the backboard so well. "Trotting" DiMauro and Stan "The Man" Fitts, unmindful of score- boards and clocks, were the "never-say-die" boys of every contest. Bob Jones held down the center spot in veteran fashion. As the magician needs his bag of tricks, so a coach needs a "bench" on which to start his "extras" and "show-stoppersf' Filling this order adequately were Jerry Leeman, Steve Doane, Bob Kiesman, Peter Sprague and Bob Edwards. And not much further away than the score book on occasion was "ever-reliable" Bob Solari, senior manager. Bob was considered a real "family-man," his family being those boys proudly wearing the blue and white of Fryeburg Academy.

Throughout the entire season, both teams showed an abundance of 94- THE ACADEMY BELL spirit, sportsmanship, and stamina. Thanks to the excellent direction of Coach LaCasce and Coach Nickerson, both teams had a very successful season. The varsity won three, tied one, and lost one. The junior varsity won two and lost two. At the end of the season, three varsity players sadly put away their sticks and shin guards for the last time. With eight of the varsity eleven returning next year, the prospects for another successful field hockey season at Fryeburg are very good.
