This question means not only get- ting through high school, but many other things. Strange as it may seem, others who have graduated always say they would like to go back to school once again. When it comes class day, and the chord is struck, down the aisle marches the graduation class led by their president. This is a very im- pressive scene to the spectators and to those taking part. Although it is a sad proces- sion, the destination of a hundred or more students has been reached after twelve long years of studying, physical training, athlet- ics, and social times with teachers and fel- low students. However, after the speakers and the class march out, graduation night is yet to come, when the class again gets to- gether. Soon the eventful night arrives. and the members no longer feel joyous but have all kinds of lumps in their throats. Laugh- ter, however, peals from the members when the class gifts are distributed and the proph- ecy is read. The minutes soon pass and the diplomas and prizes are awarded. Then comes the class ode which, on tbe last verse, is mingled with a few sobs from the girls. I shouldn't be surprised if the boys too became tender-hearted. But what is going to be done now that graduation is over? Some of you will go to preparatory schools, colleges, and training schools for nurses. When you are ready to go away in the fall, keep in mind that you are going to get all you can out of your training. lt will mean leaving old friends and making new ones. Remember, also that it will not be long before you are to be the citizens, and you will be the ones governing your community, state, and country. -The Editor 6 THE QUILL A ti ng-.- I n i llin z sl I LITERARY THINKING Once upon a time there was a family of big monkeys, a mother, Matilda, a father, Jeremiah, and three children, Henry, Pete and Hilda. Now, these monkeys had a lovely home on a branch of a tree, which all claimed as the ancestral estate. Nature fur- nished them with clothing Cthey grew their ownj, and food - sometimes. They all were happy and all day long chased each other up and down and dropped cocoanuts upon each other's heads whenever possible. But one day, Henry, who always was the intellectual child, wondered whether he could not see more of the world if he got up on his hind feet. He talked the matter over with his parents and brother and sister, but they all pooh-poohed the idea and said he would only fall down. Henry, however, was not easily discouraged, so he sat down and thought the matter over some more. He decided it 'would give him additional poise and make him stand above the rest. Also he could use his fore feet for peeling bananas as he walked along-a decided advantage. At last he attempted the great feat. He stumbled and fell several times, but at last got the knack of it. Finally he got this new- fangled walking down to a science and used it all the time. The W rest of the family would have nothing to do with it because it was not in style. To this day they still move by the good old-fashioned four-leg- ged gait. Henry taught all his children the new cult, and his later descendants thought up new innovations, such as using another animal's skin for clothing, living in a cave, and laying up a supply of food for the winter. Because Henry sat down and did some heavy thinking in those days of long ago, we are what we are today. Because of his individuality he was not afraid of the jeers of his fellows and invented a new method of perambulation. Unfortunately, however, about ninety- nine out of every hundred of Henry's de- scendants maintain the old family tradition of not using their heads. Today, one has only to look about him to see the people of the world, huddled to- gether like frightened sheep and folded and unfolded at the volition of those they chose to do their thinking. We hear of "enemies of the people." The people are their own THE QUILL 7 worst enemies. Did Hitler rise to power at the hand of thinking people? Can a thoughtful person today, and an intelligent one, subscribe to the heresy of Aryanism? Can the thinking person see a "New Free- dom" when his home is packed with secret dictaphones? When his every movement is under the scrutiny of secret police? While his life is endangered every movement by the firing squad and worse? While his son is taught to be cannon fodder and his daughter to bear more children of misery? To see the result of this lack of thinking we can recall the days of the late Republic and Early Empire of Rome. We see the Roman people, sterling and sturdy, as they lose their reasoning and morals, become a snarling pack of wolves, fed or starved at the whim of their leaders and ever ready to arise at the whim of a new leader to tear the old to pieces. For centuries the matter grows steadily worse until come the emper- ors who check the last powers of the mob and reduce them to basest slavery. In his "Man with the Hoe," Markham says, "Whose was the hand that slanted back this brow?" Whose hand, indeed! With his own hand and with the hand of his fathers the man hath slanted back his brow! His own empty mind and the empty minds of his forbears reduce him to the beast. They and they alone must account for it. Whenever we do as others because they do, we ourselves flatten our brows imper- ceptibly. As we allow that animal instinct to follow others and let the morrow take care of itself to hold sway, we regain, to a small extent, the unadmirable characteris- tics of our cousins, the monkeys. Can we in this country today believe that by destroying food we shall have plenty? That two times two equals ninety-nine and one-half? That a dollar worth fifty cents is as good in purchasing power as a dollar of one hundred cents, while in earning power it is worth fifty? That the fact that a thing is up does not mean it will come down? That black is white? To get closer to home, how can we expect to learn if we let others do the work and thinking? The way to settle a question is not to answer it the way "they" do. Do not be afraid to be in a minority. Go into your closet and coolly and carefully examine the question at length. Before making a decis- ion, weigh the factors as they stand and not as others dog to keep with the crowd is selfish to yourself, to your fellows, and to your country. The future of this country of ours lies not in talking and rushing hap- hazardly about, but in quiet, purposeful thinking followed in turn by cool and decisive action. -Robert B. Linsley, '36 PASSING THOUGHTS The attendance bell has just rung. The monitors are taking their seats and there is a general buzz of conversation as classmates exchange ideas, questions, and opinions on the day's lesson. Mr. Danforth rises, takes the attendance, then addressing the class he asks, "What are your questions on this lesson?" Questions always lead to discussions and before long our attention is centered on the subject, radicals. Today it is particularly the sulphate radical QS O4j, which plays such a large part in modern industry, that is up for discussion. Like all other classes and subjects chemis- try has its monotonous moments when try as one will, he cannot keep his mind od' the 8 THE QUILL discussion. Thus it happened that my thoughts turned from the chemical radical to the human radical mentioned in one of Herbert Hoover's recent radio talks. How similar the two are, I thought! Neither one can exist alone. The chemical radical immediately breaks down when sep- arated from its compound and refuses to serve, likewise the human radical is lost when it has nothing to cling to. The chem- ical radical, being very active, combines with practically anything near it and is al- ways in motion. The same is true of those people today who are called radicalsg they are always changing, keeping in motion, clinging to what is popular with little thought or reason. just how stable and worth while is such a person? You can never be sure of what his next move will be and under what condi- tions it will occur. Most experienced busi- ness and professional men will agree that it is not the radical type that gets the steady job and climbs the ladder of success. Are we going to think and reason out a move before taking it, or are we going to keep continually jumping from one thing to another? It is for us to decide whether the compound we are building of ourselves is going to be stable, endurable, and worth while. - Ruby Cottle, '36 BILIKINS One cold December day a friend, who lives near us, came over and told my sister and me if we wanted a lamb, to come over and he would give us one. The mother had died, and our neighbors did not have time to bother with the lambg so we took him. He was almost frozen when we got him home. We laid him on the furnace and every once in a while we gave him a tea- spoonful of milk. By night he was bleating and moving around in his box. The next day I built a pen for him and named him Bilikins. I had often heard of people bringing up lambs on a bottleg so I decided to try it. He used to pull the nipple off and lose most of the milk. I broke him of that by not giving him any more milk after he had taken the nipple off. I believe he decided he wanted the milk instead of the nipple. The day I got him he seemed to' be all legs, but in a few weeks he was plump and very lively. I shall never forget the first day I took him out-doors. He ran and jumped and rolled over and pawed the ground. Then he would bleat and smell of the grass and take a mouthful now and then. I did not dare to leave him out too long at first. I started to put him in his pen, but he had a mind of his own, and he had decided he wanted to stay out. We had quite a strug- gle before I could get him in. I used to take him out every day and play with him. I taught him to bunt, to my great sorrow. At the end of the summer I couldn't go out unless he would chase and try to bunt me. He was so large I was really afraid of him. The children in the neighborhood did not dare to come into the yard when he was around, unless they had a large stick with them. One experience I had with him stands out clearly in my mind. It happened when I was going to grammar school. I was walk- ing across the lawn when I heard something behind me. I glanced around and saw him coming with his head lowered. I dropped my books and dinner box and started to run across the field toward the woods. I didn't look back until I got over a fence. When I did look back, there was Bilikins THE QUILL 9 walking toward home just as unconcerned as he could be. He grew so plump, just before it was time to put him in for the winter, that we did not dare to make him run very much, but one day we had guests, and they got him chas- ing them all over the farm. The next morn- ing when my father went to the barn, Bilikins was dead. We all were sorry we had played so hard with him the day be- fore, because we felt we were the cause of his death. - Grace Williams, '37 TWILIGHT I was sitting by my window One warm evening just at dusk. The hovering shadows were creeping near, All tired birds had hushed. The flowers drooped their drowsy heads. Their petals all closed up. A butterfly was lingering near Perched on a butter-cup. The sky took on a lovely hue 'Twas white, and pink, and blue, It looked as if an artist's hand Had painted it a-new. We wonder how God made the world, His numerous gifts bestowed, But this we know, His loving gifts Help us to bear life's load. - Mary McCollett, '36 SPRING TRAGEDY I Bring the step ladder and bring the pail, Take down the pictures from the railg Take up each rug and carpet, Clean all the over-stuffed chairs. Then go and clean the attic - And scrub the cellar stairs. II Bring the soap and make some sudsg Wash the windows and curtain dudsg Tie a towel about your headg Take the clothes all off the bed, Beat the mattress spic and span - Find some more dust if you can. III All the family's in a stew, For mother finds so much to do: "Now, johnny, beat that parlor rug." "Now, dad, you must the ashes lug From out that dirty heater. I want my cellar to look nearer." Even the dog runs and hangs his tail Whenever mother comes with the cleaning pail. IV At night we all are nearly dead, Tired and cross and ready for bed -- But just as sure as Spring comes round, House-cleaning time is always found. - Mercedes Follansbee, '38 IO TI-IE QUILL RAIN LULLABY In my study room I listen To a lullaby of rain, Watch the tiny droplets glisten As they tumble down the pane. I cannot seem to fix my eyes Or mind upon my bookg Its dull facts cannot sympathize With weeping clouds. How gray look! I glimpse them through the leaves Of three huge trees without, The wind a moving pattern weaves Of boughs and tosses them about. And still the silver teardrops fallg , They seem to beat into my brain, Benumbing it until I cannot think at all- Can only listen to the falling rain. The rhythm, so monotonous and slow, Has linked itself with ticking of the clock Both seem to whisper secrets very low: l "Tinkle, tinkle," "Tick, tock, tick, tock,' they Now clock, now rain, now rain, now clock "Tinkle, tinkle," "Tick, tock, tick, tock.' Hear the ever endless beating - At this rate, I'll soon be sleeping. -Thelma Gillespie, '38 I Zin Qmentnrg nf I Zlirancia Elirnezi igffeszarh I fjanufxrg 30, 1515 mag 5, was T H E Q U I L L ll 1 I: Q I School- X T News f f L!

This change is being made because the stage in the audi- torium will not accommodate the exception- ally large class which is graduating. 12 THE QUILL SENIOR PLAY The senior class presented their play, "Mistakes At The Blakes," at the Gardiner High School auditorium on November 29, 1935. Gerald Mann and Robert Linsley had the male leads, while Irene Palmer and Jean Clark played opposite them, Although there was very little time for rehearsals, the play was a great success, Miss Anna B. Longfellow of the faculty directed it, and the stage and business management was well handled by John Long. The cast was as follows: Gary Blake Robert Linsley Tom Blake Gerald Mann Mrs. Perkins Edith Mann Herman Carver Wilder Purdy ' I "Ducky Lucky Larson" Irene Palmer Roberta Sims Jean Clark -f Billikins Dallas Edwards Mrs. Greengas ' Kathleen Daily Mrs. Carver Ruby Cottle Mrs. Pinkle Verna Troop A nurse Anna Ellingwood Ike and Mike Langdon Jamison and Morgan Bell Between the acts the Gardiner High School orchestra played selections under the direction of Miss Eva M. Towne. Estelle Boynton played a cornet solo, ac- companied by Veronica Gingrowg and a group of senior boys sang.

The numerals are on the side of the ring,"19" on one side and "37" on the other. SOPHOMORE CLASS On September 1, 1935, the sophomores held their first class meeting to elect officers. THE QUILL 13 Those elected were president, Robert New- house, vice-president, Lawrence Gingrowg secretary and treasurer, Anne Pomerleaug and representative to the student council, Catherine Bugbee. The gymnasium was tastily decorated in blue, white, and yellow for the Freshmen- Sophomore Reception which was held on November 1. Members of the school board, faculty, the two class presidents and their parents were invited to stand in the re- ceiving line. Those present were Mayor Ladd, Mr. Woodman, Mr. and Mrs. Carter, Mr. and Mrs. Nivison, Mr. and Mrs. Emery, Mr. and Mrs. Church, Mrs. Houd- lette, Mrs. Harlow, Miss Newman, Miss Iewett, Miss Byron, Mr. Grant, Miss Weatherbee, Mrs. Newhouse, Robert New- house, and Donald Gould. The grand march was led by the class presidents and their advisers, Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Houd- lette. Mr. Danforth was in charge of the games, and during the intermission ice cream was sold, while the School Boy Syn- copators played for those who wished to dance. In spite of the date, Friday, December 13, the Athletic Fair was a great success. We were in charge of the cooked food booth and netted a profit of S32.00. The booth was decorated in blue and white. At the end of the winter term the sopho- mores have in the bank 375.00 towards graduation expenses. FRESHMAN CLASS The freshman class of 152 students held their first class meeting on September 16, 1935. The following students were elected as class officers: president, Donald Gould, vice-president, Katherine Buckley, secre- tary and treasurer, Leroy MacDonald, and representative to the student council, Jane Ward. The first activity of the class was the Freshman-Sophomore Reception held on November 1. The gymnasium was very prettily decorated in the colors of the two classes, yellow and white, and blue and white. Games were enjoyed under the su- pervision of Mr. Danforth, refreshments were served by the sophomores, and a good time was had by all. As usual the freshmen were very active in the Athletic Fair. They had an unusual booth in their class colors of yellow and white, which was made to represent a flower basket. Attractively decorated Christ- mas trees were used for the background. From the sale of popcorn and the "White Elephants" and postal card sale a profit of 5107.25 was made. On March 18 the assembly was put on by the freshmen. A one act play entitled "Hot Tip" was presented by the freshmen members of the Dramatic Club. The cast of characters was as follows: Mona Jane Ward Sally Natalie Cole Carroll Vanity Thomas Demers Between the scenes Julie Roberts, a Dra- matic Club member, gave a monologue en- titled, "A Mouse Trap,', and Kathleen Monaghan and Imogene Caney did a tap dance. Thomas Demers acted as the an- nouncer. This was not the first time the freshmen entertained at assembly, as Geraldine Mc- Grail and Natalie Cole sang the first of the year. The freshman class is represented in the Dramatic Club, orchestra, football team, hockey team, track team and baseball team. They have both a girls' and a boys' basket- ball team. 14 THEQUILL LONG ASSEMBLIES The chairman of the program committee was jean Clark. She appointed Kathleen Dailey, Dallas Edwards, David Jamison, Eloise Wood, and lane Ward as her assist- ants. The first long assembly of the year was an account by Miss Eva M. Towne of her experience aboard the fated "Dixie Liner." Miss Towne gave a vivid picture of the hardships the passengers were forced to en- dure. The following week the School Boy Syn- copators, with Frances Bond as vocalist, fur- nished a musical program of popular songs. Every member of the orchestra was a high school student. One morning we had the pleasure of hav- ing Mrs. Guy S. Holt on our platform. She gave many interesting readings on varied subjects. On one occasion Mr. Kenneth Lee, with slide pictures of the forestry department, furnished the long assembly program. A professional baseball player, Don Brennan, from Augusta gave us a few facts about the training camps of professional baseball players. A An instrumental trio, led by Mr. George E. Goodie, Augusta violinist, presented an enjoyable assembly. The other musicians were Mrs. Dorothy Nye Metzgar, piano, and Mrs. Lee Gorham, 'cello. A talk on law was presented by Mr. Paul Fitzpatrick. He explained the court system very clearly. At the last long assembly before Temper- ance Day the Rev. Raymond L. Hart spoke on temperance. He pointed out the effect alcohol has on human beings. Mr. Cymbrid Hughes, the pastor of the Green Street Methodist Church of Au- gusta, spoke very interestingly on "The Challenge of Youth." On two occasions we had the pleasure of having with us Mr. C. Harry Edwards of the State Department of Education. The pictures he showed are one phase of the nation-wide safety campaign. The play, "Hot Tip," was presented by three Freshman members of the Dramatic Club. The cast was Jane Ward, Natalie Cole, and Thomas Demers. Between the acts Julie Roberts entertained us by a mono- logue entitled, "Rats in the Balcony" or "An Exit on Two Chairs." The first time Mayor Edwin P. Ladd spoke to us he portrayed Gardiner as it looked when there were many prosperous mills and factories on the stream and river. In his second speech he told us of the different types of government through which the city of Gardiner has passed. After the members of the National Honor Society had been chosen, they sat on the stage at the next long assembly. The oath was taken by the new members. Under the supervision of Miss Eva M. Towne, the orchestra furnished the pro- gram at the last long assembly before class day. I THE ATHLETIC FAIR The Athletic Fair, held on December 13, 1935, was a great success. The fair opened with two plays presented by the Dramatic Club, "Not on the Programme" and "The White Phantom," which were enjoyed by everyone. After the plays everyone went down to the gymnasium where there were four booths, decorated in class colors. The senior class sold candy in a very smartly decorated booth of red and whiteg at the When the new Gardiner paper, the "Gar- THE QUILL 15 sophomore booth, very trim in blue and white, was sold pastry, the freshmen had a white elephant table decorated in their class colors, yellow and white, and the juniors sold ice cream and cool drinks, their booth being constructed like an igloo. joe Burns and his orchestra furnished the music for dancing. The cast for the play "Not on the Pro- gramme" was as follows: Elinor Hodglcins Mercedes Follansbee Anna Ellingwood Lawrence Edwards Arthur Tatlock James Foote The cast of characters of "The White Phantom" was as follows: Mrs. Murray Whitney Ophelia Johnson Mrs. jones Vincent Fielding Erastus Brown Officer Hogan Virginia Storm June Gallant Natalie Cole Anna Goodspeed Augustus Demers Langdon Jamison Mrs. Drexel Blake Marion Blake Evelyn Moore Mrs. Ogden Frazier Curtis Frazier Ethan Sharp The White Phantom ? ? ? ? GARDINER HIGHLIGHTS diner Enterprise," was started, Gardiner High School was offered a section for school news. This was a weekly publication in which all the news of the week was pub- lished. In this way outsiders might keep more closely in touch with what went on in high school. It was also good training for the members of the staff and gave an oppor- tunity for students to show their abilities in many ways. The members of the Gardiner Highlights' staff were as follows: Editor Assistant Edtior News Editor William Fish Richard Small Robert Gingrow Rreonrisas General Seniors Juniors Sophomores Freshmen ACTIVITIES Dramatics Girls' Athletics Boys' Athletics Debating "G" CLUB I Helen Morang lGerald Harriman fLangdon Jamison iBeryl Loring .j'Lawrence Edwards ljames Foote I Natalie Cousens l,Lawrence Caney Margaret Church Paul Fleming Rreonrens Freda Flanders June Gallant Lloyd Goggin Carol Storm MINSTRELS The second annual "G" Club Minstrel show under the able direction of David F Kelley was presented the high school auditorium. The chorus fifty pupils as race horse owners, a circle twelve girls as jockeys and six end men April 30 and May l in of of as stable boys formed a colorful setting. Coach Charles Hinds was the interlocutor again this year. The olio was very entertaining, the set- ting taking place in the office of the chair- man of the Talent Committee. Many who saw the minstrels said that it was the best amateur production of that type ever presented in Gardiner and vicinity. A dance in the gym followed the min- strels, joe Burns' orchestra furnishing the music. 16 THEQUILL THE DRAMATIC CLUB The Dramatic Club try-outs were held soon after school began. The new mem- bers brought the total membership of our club up to thirty-six. At the October meet- ing the new members were initiated. A box social and skit by seniors made up the No- vember meeting. ' At the December meet- ing there was a Christmas tree. Gifts were exchanged, and to each gift humorous lines were attached. One of the Athletic Fair plays was presented. At the January meet- ing the juniors presented two plays, and the p.rogram for the next meeting was spon- sored by the sophomores. A contest was held in connection with the annual play, "Cappy Ricks," to see who would sell more tickets, the seniors and freshmen or the juniors and sophomores. The losers were to furnish refreshments for the April meeting. The juniors and sopho- mores won. Along with the refreshments a play and monologue were presented. The juniors and seniors were to be in charge of the May meeting. The question of Dramatic Club letters was discussed several times through the year, but no definite conclusion was reached. Gardiner High School's contribution to the State One Act Play Contest was "The Last Flight Over." The district contest was held at Bath, March 27, 1936. The radio play entitled "lack Teer" was presented over WRDO by a group of the Dramatic Club members. The annual Dramatic Club banquet was held June 9, 1936, at the Johnson House. Robert Linsley, president of the club, acted as toastmaster. Toasts were as follows: "Benefits of the Club to its Members," Mercedes Follansbeeg "Duties of the Mem- bers to the Club," Anna Goodspeedg "What the Club Can Do for Gardiner High School," Anna Ellingwoodg "The Club's Who's Who," William Brann and Forrest Hubbard. DRAMATIC CLUB PLAY On February 12, 1936, "Cappy Ricks" was presented by the Dramatic Club in the Gardiner High School auditorium. Forrest Hubbard, taking the part of Cappy, stormed about the stage while Robert Linsley, play- ing Matt Peasley, kept him in check. Other members of the play were: Betty Pomeroy Robert N ewlwuse Natalie Cousens Augustus Demers Thomas Demers Anna Gooclspeed Merrill Cousens Ellen Murray john Skinner Florence Ricks Edward Singleton Cecil Pericles Bernard Lucy Ricks Brookfield Edith Mann and Elinor Hodgkins were business managers, and William Brann was stage manager. Between the acts the Gardiner High School Orchestra played selections directed by Miss Eva M. Towne.

The season opened GHS Opp. with the team using the balanced line as Home O O they had the previous year, but this was Away ZO 6 changed for the unbalanced line, as the Home O 2 former proved less effective. Away O 34 The "35" squad made up in fight for Away O 6 what it lacked in weight. When given a Away 7 12 decent break, they proved that they could Away 13 O go places. Among the promising candidates Home O 6 were Co-captains Norman Ooggin and Bill Home 18 O Donovan, Harry Drisko, johnny Lasselle, 66 58 "Speed" Merrill, Dallas Edwards, and others. 18 THE QUILL G. H. S. O - ALUMNI O In their first game of the season, the lighter orange and black played a superb defensive game in holding the heavier Alumni team to a scoreless tie. The Var- sity forward-wall played a nice offensive game, but the backs could not seem to ad- vance into their opponents' territory. Don- ovan's punting and Edwards' tackling for the varsity and Kidder's ground-gaining for the Alumni were the outstanding events of the game. G. H. S. 20 - BRUNSWICK O Gardiner's fighting orange and black team, taking advantage of every possible break, won their first major game of the season. End-sweeps, blocked punts, intercepted passes, and line smashes, all combined, gave the team the game. 'Outstanding players for Gardiner were Norm Goggin, Cecil Smith, Vern Stuber, and "Speed" Merrill. For Brunswick, Estes and Pletts were the lead- ing ground-gainers. G. H. S. O - MORSE 2 The Hindsmen were opposed in this game by the Morse football team and Mr. Hard Luck himself. Several chances were mis-used as the Gardiner team lacked their punch of the week before. It was a hard- fought game until the last quarter when Edwards, Gardiner's center, made a bad pass over Bill Donovan's head, the ball rolling into the end-zone. Donovan made a good try at taking the ball out, but the Morse-men were on him before he could succeed. Donovan, Stuber, and Goggin were outstanding for Gardiner. G. H. S. O - WATERVILLE 34 The result of this game with Waterville was no surprise to the Gardiner fans. Al- though the orange and black played "heads- up" football all through the game, they were no match for the heavier, quicker, and smarter Waterville High Panthers. Tommy Cosgrove, Waterville's 136 pound substi- tute left half-back, was the outstanding per- former of the day, scoring two touchdowns. G. H. S. O A Skowi-IEGAN 6 Even though Gardiner lost the game by one touchdown, they pulled a surprise on the predictions of many interested specta- tors. This was a good game, very fast and at times very furious. The Skowhegan score came in the third stanza and was made by Oddy. G. H. S. 7 - BOWDOIN FRosH 12 Again Gardiner's football team was chased by the jinx when they were defeated by the Bowdoin Frosh team. The orange and black were the superior team all through the game and only two blocked punts and a lucky forward pass enabled the "Frosh" to win. Goggin, Donovan, Ricker, jordan, and Drisko were the outstanding players for Gardiner. G. H. S. 13 - ROCKLAND O Recovering their old-time fight and scor- ing punch, Gardiner's orange and black team fought their way into a victory over Rockland. Most of the plays were line smashes and always were successful for a good gain. Edwards was by far the out- standing player of the game on the defense. Hawkins played a beautiful game, scoring all of the points. G. H. S. O - HALLOWELL 6 Because of their victory the week before, the Gardinerites were expected to over- come Hallowell. But this did not happen on account of an unfortunate fumble in THE QUILL 19 last quarter of the seven-yard line, from which Vinal scored the only touchdown of the game. Hallowell used the air route throughout the entire game. Ballard, Vinal, Trial, and Vigue were outstanding for Hall- owell while Goggin, Donovan, and Merrill did fine work for Gardiner. G. H.S. 18 - CoNY O November 16, 1935, will have a long life in the memories of those who heard or wit- nessed the Cony-Gardiner football strug- gle. It was the date of the surprising victory of Gardiner's victory over Cony to the tune of 18-O. From the opening whistle un- til the final whistle, the orange and black unit was superior in all departments of the game and was at no time out played. The Gardiner backs fought through the lines un- til they were tackled by three or four Cony men. Wonderful spirit was shown by the spectators, who cheered the loyal orange and black team on to victory. The plays of the game were mainly line smashes and very seldom did Gardiner lose ground. Only one lateral play was attempted and that was unsuccessful, as was the Gardiner passing attack. The first touchdown was scored in the second quarter by means of an end sweep of Merrill's followed immedi- ately by Goggin, who rushed the ball over on a spinner through the line. The second touchdown was made when Killam inter- cepted a pass and ran 75 yards for a touch- down, aided, however, by the wonderful blocking of Dallas Edwards. The last touchdown was scored on a sweet trick play executed through the clever brain-work of our quarter-back, Norm Goggin. After working the middle of the line, Norm called on Bill Donovan to pull an end-around play. This resulted in the expected success of a touchdown. This game showed that Gardiner's football team still had some of the necessary spirit in it. It would be very difficult to pick out any exceptional player as the whole team worked wonderfully to- gether. Much credit is due to the boys who won the Cony-Gardiner annual game and also to the junior varsity who helped our successful varsity team. Although Gardi- ner won 3, lost S, and tied 1 they redeemed themselves in the eyes of all the citizens of Gardiner by winning the most important game, the Cony-Gardiner game. At a banquet given by the supporters of the football team the lettermen elected Harry Drisko and Robert Killam, juniors, as co-captains for the 1936 football team. The lettermen are as follows: Seniors: co-captains Norm Goggin and Bill Dono- van, johnny Lasselle, Keith Curtis, Walter Ricker, "Red" Lamson, Dallas Edwards, "Tubby" Jamison, Erland jordan, Vern Stuber, Carl Douglas, Ralph Clarke, El- wood Hawkins, Cecil Smith, "Speed" Merrill, and Managers, Frank Davis and Wilder Purdy. Juniors: co-captains-elect, Bob Killam and Harry Drisko, and Frank McNally. Sweaters, adorned with chenille G's, were given all lettermen as an extra reward from the citizens of Gardiner. These sweaters were given at a second banquet. The gift of the sweaters was made possible through the untiring efforts of three former G. H. S. athletes, Mike Jones, Joe Burns, and Cecil Smith. BOYS' BASKETBALL Although having only one veteran, Frank McNally, and a new coach, "Mike" ijones, Gardiner had good prospects for a successful season with the addition of sev- eral men who had junior-varsity experi- ence of the previous year. Among these were "Speed" Merrill, johnny Laselle, Bill Donovan, and Lorne Ladner. "Mike" 20 THE QUILL jones is a former Gardiner High athlete, and is well-known in basketball and base- ball circles. G. H. S. 31 - ALUMNi 26 Under fire for the first time the orange and black quintet edged out the "grads" in a fast game which looked like anyone's game until the final whistle. Merrill and McNally were high scorers for Gardiner, and Tyler for the Alumni. G. H. S. 26 - HALLOWELL 52 The fast black and white outfit led by Trial and Ballard swept to a decisive victory over Gardiner in spite of the latter's des- perate efforts to stop the attack. G. H. S. 22 - CONY 29 Although defeated, Gardiner fought des- perately, but the better marksmanship of the Cony basketeers proved itself. Merrill was outstanding for Gardiner, while Camp- bell rolled up the points for Gony. G. H. S. 54- WINTHROP 13 Having overcome a two-weeks' doze, Gardiner went to work on Winthrop and came through with an overwhelming vic- tory. McNally, Gardiner's flash, scored at will, rolling up 27 points. Even after the jayvees were sent in, the Winthrop team could not score. G. H. S. 17 - HALLOWELL 26 For the second time our boys were forced to bow in defeat at the hands of Hallowell's black and white flashy outfit. Although defeated, the Gardiner team made a better showing than in the previous game. G. H. S. 22 - LAWRENCE 40 journeying to Fairfield with high hopes, Gardiner found themselves greatly disap- pointed by a more experienced outfit which handed them a 40-22 defeat. Fairfield scored most of their points in the last half, out-scoring Gardiner in this half 22-11. "Mucker" McNally and "Speed" Merrill were high scorers with 9 points apiece. G. H. S. 22 - CONY 36 ln the game Gardiner started out by keep- ing close to Cony with the result of a tie score at the end of the first half 13-13. But the last half brought bad luck to Gardiner with Cony out-scoring the boys in the last half to the tune of 23-9. The final score was 36-22. McNally was high scorer of the game with 7 points. G. H. S. 28 - LAWRENCE 20 Disgustecl with 'themselves in their pre- vious showing with Fairfield, Gardiner went to work and cleaned up Lawrence High 28- 20. At the half Gardiner was leading 20-6 and at the end of the game 28-20. McNally, who was changed from center position to left-forward, was high scorer with 12 points. Peacock, the new center, played a nice game in that position, scoring 4 points. G. H. S. 32 - WINTHROP 26 ln their second game with Winthrop G. H. S. repeated their victory, winning by the score of 32-26. In this game Gardiner was sleepy and Winthrop took advantage of the break, but were not good enough to overthrow Gardiner. Again McNally was high scorer with 18 points to his credit. G. H. S. 43-M. S. C. 31 Playing a post-season game Gardiner easily defeated the Maine School of Com- merce with the score of 43-31. At the end of the first half M. S. C. was leading 17-15, but Gardiner began to click and finished with the game in their hands, the score be- THE Q UILL Z1 ing 43-31. McNally and Merrill were high- scorers with 17 and 11 points respectively. In looking over the seasons record we find that Gardiner won 5 games and lost 5 games. The following is a summary of the two leading scorers of the season. "Mucker" McNally 125 points "Speed" Merrill 52 points HOCKEY For the first time in several years Gardi- ner has a hockey team, coached by Palmer Hinds, who volunteered his services. The main purpose is to lay a foundation for fu- ture hockey teams. Most of the material is inexperienced and we should not expect too much of them. Fine spirit is shown, which makes it look as though hockey will become a major sport in G. H. S. G. H. S. O-CONY 5 ' In their first game of the season Gardiner was defeated by the superior Cony team, but they made a good showing as Cony had been defeated only once. For 26 minutes they held Cony scoreless but on account of inexperience the orange and black were forced to submit to a scoring attack. Bob Goggin, Gerald Harriman, and Dallas Edwards were outstanding for Gardiner. G. H. S. 2 - ROCKLAND 3 Encouraged by their nice playing of the previous week, the Gardiner "locals" went to Rockland and played a wonderful game. Although defeated, Gardiner showed their true Gardiner spirit and sportsmanship and only in the last minute of play were they de- feated. Harriman was the star, scoring both of Gardiner's goals. TENNIS With two veterans, "Speed" Merrill and Frank McNally, and about 20 inexperienced men working out daily, Coach Charles Arthur is looking forward to a very success- ful season. A fairly large schedule has been made up and it would not be surprising if our local boys should come through with a good number of victories. Charles Arthur, a former G. H. S. net star, is coaching the squad for his second year. TRACK Under the leadership of Coach Charles Hinds Gardiner is attempting to build up a track team to compete with other neighbor- ing schools. Many students from the four classes have reported for practice and are developing rapidly. The track team has a hard, long schedule ahead of them. In the first Colby indoor track-meet Gardiner earned 7 points in taking fourth place by the varsity, senior relay team, Sophomore relay team, Freshman relay team, and eighth grade relay team. The score was as follows: 4th Varsity team 3 points 4th Senior relay team 1 point 4th Sophomore relay team 1 point 4th Freshman relay team 1 point 4th Eighth relay team 1 point Total 7 points In the second meet Bill Donovan, Gardi- ner's flash, took third place in the 300 yard dash.

The Alumni players were Margaret Donovan, Katherine Grimes, Agnes Henderson, Chris- tine Donovan, Bernice Hewitt, Blanche Chase, and Frances Grimes. The Cony game on the home floor was the most exciting game of the season. The last minute of the game gave us our last basket, tying the score. The Gardiner girls spruced up in the sec- ond Hallowell game and gave their rivals more of a iight than in the preceding games. The team of '35-'36 has been practically a brand new set of basketeers. We lost nearly every game as far as the score was concerned but not one because of poor sportsmanship. Our coach, Miss Doris Newman, is a U. of M. graduate.

Now, you old scandal- lovers, as I'm about to emit what news I've been privileged to gather from my assistants and from my trusty telescope aboard the good ship, "Eavesdrop," I shall spring my can of gossip. Baker has returned from the boys' school which he was attending, presumably be- cause of the confinement prescribed there. But we notice he and his car are making up for lost time. Simply ask Ioan Norton If my word isn't sufficient - By the way, Verna Troop is still "Lost in a Fog."- We, the class of '36 believe we possess that cer- tain thing which the classes of the last ten years have been unable to secure - Gardi- ner-l8, Cony-O-Lyman Warren is still unknowingly cracking jokes. The other day Mrs. Harlow diagrammed on the board and explained the constellation of Orion and its nearby planets. Warren asked what two certain stars in the left were. After minutes of fruitless search by the teacher, our common-sense marvel - Dallas Edwards - made it known to the class that Mr. Warren's two stars were dots on the Z i's in Sirius! Recently Dave Hodgkins in one of his spells of gay hilarity returned home from school at 8:30 A.M. He was asked why there was such a short session today. "Well," he said, "no session at all. Couldn't find the teacher. She must be sick." "What seemed to be the complaint?" he was asked. "No complaint at all. Everybody's satis- fied. Let's go huntin' Baker!" - Probably many noticed, as did our prowling reporter, that the girls all spent their nights at home for a week last winter. According to refer' ence data, we find that the same week was 26 THE QUILL one which Dallas Edwards, jack Baker, and Co, spent in Boston - And speaking of Romance, we see that jean Clark and George Johnson are "that way" about each other - We have also noticed there is someone who can get a monopoly on Alice Sprague by the looks of things.

One of the most frequent and scathing criticisms of high school pupils today is that they are lacking in "school spirit." This accusation is especially prevalent dur- ing the football season. After a victorious game, it is not a rare sight to see an exuber- ant supporter of the winning team push back his hat and exclaimf "What, no cele- bration or snake-dance? Where is all your school spirit? " This kind of remark certainly does not sound very complimentary to the school and is often embarrassing to nearby stu- dents. I wonder if those critics really ap- preciate the subject about which they are talking. Do they consider the changed con- ditions of school life, different methods of teaching, and different aspects of school loyalty taught to the students of today? Perhaps in the school days of those gradu- ates of Gardiner High School, they urged on their teams to victory by a giant rally and bonfire in the public square the night before and celebrated a hard-won victory by a winding snake-dance through the streets of the city. 6 THE QUILL All this is well and good. But stop and think a moment. Do we not have rallies before games? Are not the teams sup- ported by an enthusiastic cheering section and school band? Are present conditions in the city suitable for a long parade through the streets? When Father went to school, it was a simple matter for a policeman to di- rect horse-drawn vehicles or a few automo- biles in another direction. But now the streets are filled with a busy stream of auto- mobiles dashing here and there. Indeed, a parade of boisterous students constitutes a virtual menace, not only dangerous to themselves, but to other pedestrians and drivers. It would seem to the editor that the number of automobile accidents is large enough without contributing any possible additions to the list. However, this is only one phase of the question of school spirit. Aside from ath- letics, I think that one would find just as much, if not more, response to the various organizations and school affairs, as in the past. Today there is hardly an activity of the Gardiner schools in which the pupils of the High School do not do credit to themselves and their school. If the words "school spirit" carry to the public the impression of vehement oral sup- port of one's school and team, combined with a lusty, disrespectful heckling of all rival schools and teams, then we students of today are sadly lacking in this respect. If, however, school spirit means the loyal support of all the school activities to- gether with the ability to act as ladies and gentlemen and the virtue of good sports- manship, then I believe that it is safe to say that the present generations of High School students have their due share of school spirit. -The Editor AVERAGE OR BETTER? After reading James Truslow Adams's essay, "The Unknown Soldier," I won- dered if almost all of us are not content to be just common men. Very few of us do anything in our lives to make us uncom- mon. We do the things before us just well enough to get along. How many of us do the things we do not have to do? Are not most of us content with mediocrity? We do our school work from day to day just well enough so that we shall be able to recite in class the next day or so that we shall be able to pass our six weeks' exami- nations. We may be doing as well as the next fellow, but to succeed should we not be doing better? How many of us volun- teer to do a little extra work, or how many of us do outside research work to make our- selves outstanding in some subject? To be a success one has to be better than the average - one can not be an ordinary person. Napoleon, one of the greatest gen- erals the world has ever known, was un- common. Shakespeare, who has never been surpassed in playwriting, was not content with mediocrity. We must have some particular thing at which we are aiming and the ability to achieve it. To succeed we must have high ideals and have strength of character enough to live up to those ideals. -Charlotte A. Fogg, '37 ON COCPERATION The word cooperate is derived from the Latin words con and operare. Con means together and operare, to work. It is by com- bining the two that we get cooperate which THE QUILL 7 means to work together. Cooperation is its noun. Notice closely that the meaning is to work together. The partnership of actions is the whole idea. Each one of a group may work like a Trojan, but unless each is aim- ing for the same goal in a similar manner, all is lost. Yet again, one or two persons may work for a single purpose, but if there are one or two who should be helping but who are doing nothing, the effort of the whole is retarded and the results, less grati- fying. A Often there are members of commit- tees who have seemingly the best interests of their organizations at heart but who can- not release their pet ideas and compromise. In that case the work of one may offset that of the other and no point be reached. As I write, it seems to me that compromise and cooperation are closely interwoven terms. In recent months we have had many sit- down strikes. These strikes illustrate viv- idly the value of cooperation. They illus- trate this in two ways. The effect of coop- eration is shown by the halting of industry when united forces work together for this end. Then the need for compromise in at- taining an objective is also illustrated. When two classes, capital and labor, have differences, nothing is accomplished by each side pulling its own way without help of the other, regardless of methods. Compromise should come first, that the two sides may decide on a common objective and then comes cooperation to help them reach their goal as quickly as possible. Another phase of cooperation is seen very vividly in sports. In this field, how- ever, it is known as teamwork. Any sports fan knows the importance of it. It has been seen and felt that the lack of spirit or of full attention to the matter at hand of one player has lost a game, thereby spoiling the wonderful work of the rest of the team. Lack of cooperation is fully as detrimental in all matters, but in some cases this defic- iency is not noticed so easily. Lack of cooperation is very often evident in large group organizations. Each mem- ber seems, and feels himself, a very small part of the group. Because of this idea one stays away from important meetings, re- hearsals, and the like thinking, "Oh, well, I haven't anything important to do, so they can get along without me." We can all see the harm to the group and disappointment to the leader resulting from many members having this same thought. These are only a few of the instances which we have all beheld or experienced. Yet I think I have here a solution to the problem. Let all the backsliders and the discontented lead and have the responsibil- ity for the success of certain projects. After several experiences such as I have related, those persons will have become ardent sup- porters of their various organizations. -Richard Small, '37 IS THE WORLD GROWING BETTER If this discussion were an inquiry into the pocket book, the library, or the factory, we could answer that the world improves. It must be so. Look at all the work that is go- ing on today to educate people and help them to better ways of living. All this cer- tainly must count for something. Think how much better women are treated than in the days of Shakespeare. No longer does the husband consider his wife as a piece of property as he would his cow, his fields, or his house. No longer can a man treat a woman or her children in any way he wishes. Think how much the world has advanced 8 THE QUILL in its viewpoints of justice. Think how much the world has advanced in knowledge, in science, in industry, and in a hundred different ways. But just because john James possesses three million dollars, does that make him any nobler, more dignified, or better mor- ally? Does the fact that james John is a great student, supposed to have forgotten more than most men ever knew, make any difference as far as his kindness, love or judgment is concerned? Of course not. Some of the forces are tending to make the world better, but a great many appear to be pulling the other way. Who can tell beforehand which way a tug of war will go? The common man would say that the world was of course growing better, but this ques- tion in the hands of three college professors would cause considerable debate. On going through a large American city I see a liquor saloon on every block - and all are busy. The news-stands are full of placards announcing articles in magazines, such as graft, slaughter in Spain, divorce suits, breach of promise cases, cheap love novels, and much other unnecessary trash. I think we can say that our American lib- erty is a tonic that proves too strong for some of us and thereby dulls our senses. I-low are we going to avert war? We have tried conferences, leagues and all sorts of propaganda, but what have they accom- plished? Practically .nothing. I am not pretending to offer any remedy, for I am too young and immature to have but the slight- est understanding of the seriousness of this problem. But I do believe, sincerely, that there is little hope for the destruction of this menace unless it be through the souls of men. This one way and one way only can we proceed with any success. When we say a man grows better, we mean that he is more willing to do the right thing, to control his desires, to sacrifice his wants for the general welfare, to be more helpful, that is, he shows more justice, kind- ness, and more self-control. So I ask is the world growing better? -Forrest Hubbard, '37 THE QUILL 9 ,gym V J g ,K Lil if g rj Q- c.-QM ch xg f "' dpi' T- ' . In the grey winter afternoon, patches of melting snow, like cotton tufts, flecked the open spaces of the dreary marshland. The cold wind blew fitfully inland from the At- lantic and playfully flirted with Virgil Took- er's rags and tattersg but the boy and the dog huddled together on the brow of the hill overlooking the wastelands seemed im- pervious to the elements. True, every so often the brown eyes were raised beseech- ingly to the face above as if to say, "C'mon, we've been here long enough now, let's go home," and the scrawny little black body shifted nervously, but that face above- vacant as an empty eggshell-stared un- seeing, with the stare of an idiot, across space into the horizon. They sat thus, the half-grown ragged sim- pleton and his pathetic, trusting companion, as was their usual custom, motionless through the waning afternoon and short twilight. Presently through the growing dark a single ruddy square of light appeared at a short distance some where in the vicin- ity of the bottom of the hill. The spark of life was instantly rekindled in the silent watchers. They became attentiveg the idiot's gaze was riveted on the light, fasci- nated. After a while they rose, the boy slowly, the little dog springing quickly to his feet, shaking himself and joyfully trott- ing off into the darkness. The idiot fol- lowed dreamily, slowly feeling each step of the way with stumbling feet, keeping his squinted eyes on the reddish orange oblong of light. The vivid color against the velvet background of the night drew him on as a magnet, it was for these few moments of joyous, dazed fascination at the end of his useless day that he spent his whole after- noon waiting and watching. "Poor Virgil, he ain't got the sense he was born with," Jotham Tooker would say, shaking his grizzled head. "Can't even teach him to rake grass, he'd set right down in the middle o' the swamp, he ain't got no git up like th' rest o' our kids, he ain't never 10 THE QUILL bin right, he's a real trial to me and ma.

Poor Virgil, in intlect he's small pertaters an' few in a hill. Yes, me an' ma has our trial in that young 'un." And so they did. jotham, a poor, simple, hardworking fellow, had all he could do to keep food in the mouths of his six growing children and the roof of their miserable hovel over their heads. He and his family Cwith the exception of helpless Virgili worked early and late, and yet they barely kept body and soul together. But they'd not had to accept charity from the town. As Virgil's lagging steps drew him nearer home, the pleased look began to fade from his face and the vacant stare returned. He reached the door, where the little dog had been waiting impatiently, pushed it open, shuffled across the noisy kitchen to the round table in the center, slumped into his chair between two of his younger brothers, and began to eat ravenously. That night, the family asleep, the idiot rolled out of bed and on hands and knees crept slyly over the floor. Entering the kitchen, he crawled more slowly, his gaze riveted on the rosy fingers of light showing in the open slits in the front of the stove. Creeping as near as possible, he crouched on the floor in the dark, fascinated, his hands working convulsively. Since the night two weeks ago when by chance he had discovered this new pleasure, he had come stealthily, keeping his secret locked in himself, to satiate his lust. Through the slits he could see the living, twisting flame and his small eyes lighted up with joy - a leering grin of pleasure spread slowly over his vacant face. He turned his head now and then to watch the dancing shadows on the wall behind him. He went as near as he dared. Each night for a week he had crept nearerka little nearer. He was losing the last bit of fear and becoming less awedg heretofore he had not been within touch of the objects of his fascination - the bloody sun of summer sunsets, the orange moon high in the skyg a square of light in the darkness, and he was always kept from bonfires by his father or brothers or not allowed to see them. But now, huddled before this fire, he wanted to touch, to seize the live waving color. The idiot rose slowly and with the instinctive cunning of his kind noiselessly lifted the lid from the stove. For one instant -joy Supreme - he seemed to be taking into himself the purr and flutter of the flames, the licking tongues reached higher, grasped the sleeve of his old-fashioned cotton night- shirt, ate up along his arm before he knew what had happened. Even when he real- ized he was being hurt he hadn't wit enough to call out, but backed helplessly into the window. The flimsy curtain caught in- stantlyg he shrieked wildly in inhuman agony as he started to run across the kitchen and almost collided with his startled father, who was followed by the rest of the family tumbling into the room wide-eyed. The roaring heat of the flames was by this time unbearable, and Virgil, overcome, dropped to the floor while vainly struggling to follow the rest of the family. Dragging his dog by the neck, they staggered out into the cold night air and stood huddled to- gether shivering silently, watching the bon- fire made up of all they held dear. In their state of sleepy amazement they did not miss the idiot Cseldom with them anywayj but supposed he was with them and made no effort to hold the faithful lit- tle pet who, wriggling free, trotted to the , THE QUILL ll edge of the flames, paced back and forth once or twice whining piteously, and then dashed headlong into the flames to his master, where a falling timber mercifully obliterated him. Poor Virgil! If he and his pet could but have seen the glorious flaming color of which they were a part, which they helped to make.- But I'm sure they knew and were happy together. -Ann Pomerleau, '38 SPRING As March gives way to April, after a long cold monotonous winter, the thoughts of all mankind turn to spring. Spring is the most interesting and, to me, the most im- portant season of the whole year. This is the time that our minds begin to brighten after a winter of dull sleepiness. Everybody feels that he must be up and doing some- thing. Of course we are hindered slightly by a disease known as spring fever, but this does not last long and we continue to pro- gress in the brightening of our minds. Let us stop a moment and see what these spring feelings are. To the baseball coach, spring means another season of swishing balls, plunking as they strike the catcher's mitt or cracking as the bat sends them fly- ing our into the field. How successful a season he will have and many other ques- tions flash into his mind from time to time until at last he can issue the "first call." Now we leave the noisy baseball field and retire to the quiet study of the poet. Spring has inspired many poets, and about this season beautiful poems have been written. Wordsworth's "Lines Written in Early Spring," and his "To the Cuckoo," and Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" show indi- rectly the beauty of this season. Of all people I think the school boy suf- fers the most from spring fever. There is a period each year when he feels low, disagree- able, and unhappy, and he can't under- stand how the older people can be so full of joy and happiness. As a matter of course, however, he soon snaps out of it, and there never was a happier boy than he when it is time for the first fishing trip. Spring to the young man brings but one thought, and as I know nothing about this subject that is so important to him, I will leave it without saying any more. Let us for a moment look at the more humble side of life. Imagine the joy of the tramp when he realizes the long drudgery of winter is over. The barn will be warm again, he can enjoy the scenery as his freight train speeds across the country, and soon there will be more to eat. We see now that in one way or another we are all affected by spring. In closing I wish to quote the words of the immortal Milton. "In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant, it was an injury and sullenness against Na- ture not to go out and see her riches, and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth." ' -Augustus Demers, '37 A SOPI-IOMORE'S AUGURY Sometimes we get tired of our present sur- roundings and long for unusual sights, new faces, and different scenery. One day while feeling in this mood I walked into our Gar- diner High School for another day of work and pleasure. The assembly bell rang as I was sitting in my seat trying to vision where I would be ten years from now. I watched my class-mates come in. Why, what was that behind Roberts? It was an 12 THE QUILL actress playing hostess in a beautiful house in Beverly Hills. fShe always did have a part in the plays at G. H. SJ R. McDonald walked in, smiling as usual, but beside her I could see a young woman wearing a stiff, white uniform. Her dreams had come true, and she was now superintendent in a large hospital. R. Dunn, the tallest woman in the world, was playing in the Ring Brothers' Circus. Leading a well known orchestra was L. McDonald with A. Goodwin as pianist and R. Rines as violinist. Special features were K. Monaghan and I. Caneyg they had tap- ped their way to fame, while N. Cole crooned the latest hits. C. Flarity, the boy who always knows the answer, supervised an Information Bureau and S. Potter asked the questions. CI guess she never got away from that habit.J J. Ward, known for her distinctive voice, recited R. Wheeler's latest poem. Over the next station came the voice of Thomas Demers, agreeing with Governor New- house's latest ideas. The bravest lads of "39," 1. Cobb and P. Leighton, had gone to explore the North Pole. Babe Ruth, once known as D. Gould, was waiting for the next game, when he would play the famous feminine team star- ring K. Goggin as pitcher, and K. Buckley as catcher. C. Pickering and his bed-time stories made the children behave for fifteen min- utes. Their fathers behaved rather different after being lectured by M. Morgan, our Secretary of Labor. - E. Ellingwood- My adventures were interrupted as as- sembly closed and the pupils prepared to leave. Maybe my class-mates wondered why I looked at them so queerly, but, of course, they couldn't understand that I had journeyed ten years into the future. They had satisfied my wants for travel that day. -Jacqueline McCollet, '39 A WALK IN THE wooos Summer was just fading into fall, the tourist season was beginning to ebb. But at Fir Lodge, a select summer resort in New England, business was at its height. Every- where striplings might be seen, usually arm in arm with painted, giggling girls, all evi- dently from the same mold, all individual- ity smothered with artifice. The dark cur- tain of night was drawing across the bright day. The sun was setting, glorious and stately, gathering the soft, billowy clouds to her, like a worried mother herding her off- spring home. A squirrel jabbered excitedly at a young man strolling through the woods. The throaty croaking of the frogs came across a field from the reeds in a dismal marsh. The young man hurried past the disorderly, variegated cluster of flowers, in- terspersed with grotesque, ludicrous fanta- sies of shrubs so popular now, then he turned into the woods. He strolled down a path, expertly dodging the roots which lurked here and there to catch careless feet. Walter Glcott was a smart young lawyer. He was a popular fellow, good-looking, and he had a wealthy clientele. It might have been for any of these reasons that Mrs. Theobald Rupert Tyndale, of the Tyndale Spool millions, had invited him to accom- pany her party to this sylvan haunt. left the rest to go for a he left, the servants had Mrs. Tyndale had seen Olcott had just walk. just before been in an uproar. a fly, and all the servants, cook to errand- boy, were running about, all heavily armed with fly paper and fly swatters. Why, Ol- cott asked himself, did she come here to the THE QUILL 131 woods. She had servants galore, in fact, she had all the conveniences of the city. Olcott rambled along only a few hundred yar:1s and then sat down on a log, listening to the birds. He had begun to doze, when a sound made him start. He looked up, and saw a girl. She was just the girl he had dreamed of, young, fresh, beautiful. "Hello" he said, then swore at himself for frightening her. "Er, beautiful evening, isn't it?" "Why-er-yes, isn't it?" she answered. Fighting to avoid an awkward silence, Ol- cott said, "Won't you sit down?" "Why, yes. Thanks," she said, sitting primly on the opposite end of the log. "Er- are you in Mrs. Tyndale's party? But no, you couldn't be. Neither am I. I am here- er-incognito," she gushed, as if to relieve her feelings. "Oh, are you?" he asked, plainly inter- ested. "Yes, I'm an heiress, the only daughter of - oh, the name makes no difference. I come here once in a while to get away from it Wall, the money, great mansion, cars, clothes, shows, yacht, summers on the Gulf. It gets tiresome, you know." "Oh," he said, with an inferior feeling. "Well," she said, rising, "I must go back now. I may go in and see Mrs. Tyndale. She will be glad to see me. Well, goodbye." Olcott watched her go around a bend in the path, started to get up to follow her, then dropped back on the log. Anyone following the girl would have seen her go around the bend, stop, and look behind her. Seeing him still there, she hurried to the clearing, and went around to the rear of the building. A girl in a wait- ress's costume shouted, "Maisie! Come on, you got to take my place!" And the sylvan nymph, disguised in an ugly, gray uniform, began to run errands. She happened past the door of the room in which Mrs. Tyndale was holding sway just as Olcott came in. Mrs. Tyndale cried across the room, "Oh, there you are, Wallief' Deeply humiliated, Maisie hurried on, her cheeks flushed. before Olcott went to That night, just bed, he said to his mirror, "There was the girl I would like to marry, but she isn't for me. She is entirely out of my class. Now, if only she were a poor girl, even just a waitress in this place ..... " -R. Leighton, '39 TALE TOLD BY A SILK STOCKING I was born in a large factory in Maine. This was long before the world had even heard the word depression, so I was a very superior product to the sleazy, cheaper stockings of today. I was woven of pure silk with double re-inforced heel and toe. For a long tiresome month, I lay in a box, waiting for some attractive young lady to come and get me. I dreamed of the good times I would have with her. We would go to dances and movies, where other girls would envy my mistress her sheer, smooth stockings. But, alas! My pride and conceit were shortflived. One day, a tall, angular old maid with a sharp face and bargain-hunting eyes, came toward the stocking counter. Confident that she would choose some of my low-grade sisters, I paid no attention. I was not accustomed to the ways of this cruel world. Suddenly, the sales girl advanced toward me, clutched my box, and passed me to the customer. My heart sank! I-Ier sharp little eyes gleamed. She poked me with a chap- ped, rough forefmger. -1 In a daze, I felt myself being wrapped up 14 THE QUILL and then carried a long distance, bumping around in the bottom of a musty basket, with a bunch of celery for a companion. On arriving at our destination, I was rudely jerked out of the box and held up to the light. Then I was ruthlessly pulled over a bony, skinny foot. A heavy black shoe, with a crumpled, soiled lining was pulled on. We walked down stairs and into a room that was nothing else but a kitchen. Bing! My dreams crashed to the floor. My ideal girl faded away and a hook-nosed, hawk- eyed cook took her place. Ah, but there must be some escape. I, who was descended from a long line of no-run-no-darn hosiery, would run a mara- thon. But, here begins the tragedv of my life. For, no sooner had I started to run than that eagle-eyed woman snatched up a needle and caught me. But that was not the end of my misfortunes, that clumsy shoe wore out my patient soul completely. So, now, my pious soul is humiliated by the numerous "Dams" that pierce it. But, soon I can bid good-by to the old black shoe. Old age is creeping upon me and, before the next trumpet call, I shall be reclining in the beautiful old red rag bag, happy at last. -Kay Buckley, '39 SOME LINES ON LINES This isn't a protest-I realize the utter futility of any such action. And it isn't a petition-I recognize the equal hopeless- ness of such a proceeding. It is a lament and a condolence meant for fellow sufferers from an apparently necessary evil. I mean evil in the sense of Cwebsterj an "unfortu- nate, disastrous afflictiong a calamity." Bookkeeping students will know to what I refer - balancing lines! These, surely these, are the root of all Commercial misery. It isn't the lines themselves I object tog it's drawing them. It cannot be denied that they look charmingly decorative, done in red at the end of a generally blue account. Also they foretell the approaching end in a long set, showing the Assets, Liabilities and Proprietorship of John Jones, whom you don't know, and don't want to know, and if you ever met, would probably shoot on sight. Also they're necessary. This last should be stressed, because it's true. I don't know why, but it must be, because the book says so, and the teacher says so, and other indi- viduals whom you may ask will say so, even though they may be as vague about the rea- son as you are. And if all this doesn't prove it true, what are you going to do about it? And who are you to gainsay it? However, I can sympathize with you. I can express compassion and commisera- tion. And if you like, we can have a good cry together somewhere, sometime. And I'll tell you about the dream I had. After one has spent half an evening, or less, drawing two parallel lines in sections at the end of about forty or more accounts it is no wonder they haunt bedside. They appeared to me as more three one's regiments of little demons, all in red, march- ing against a white horizon, climbing num- berless little blue fences in perfect rhythm. Their ranks seemed endless, their double line indomitable. And they were endless, and they were indomitable, and they marched straight through my head. The horrible details would give you similar night- mares, for they succeeded in chasing Mor- pheus so far away that I never caught up with him again all that wretched night. But not only do they ruin one's sleep. They consume more time than seems rea- sonable for one thing. I spend more time THE QUILL 15 drawing balancing lines than I spend on all the rest of the set - or so it seems. I draw till I've almost as much red ink on my fingers as there is left in the bottle. I draw till I'm green in the face and blue in the mind. Or at least, what I am pleased to call, and a few others are kind enough to call, my mind. I draw till bell-time or bed-time, depending rn whether I'm in school or at home. And then, by the bones of Michelangelo, I'm probably not finished! Well, I'm not the girl I used to be, and maybe I never was. And tomorrow will follow today, and honesty is the best policy, and murder will out, and Gabriel will find me drawing lines - double-lines, in three sections. -Thelma Gillespie, '38 OUR VISIT TO THE TELEPHONE OFFICE 'One fine day in February we were notified that the Ofiice Practice Class would visit Gardiner's new Telephone Building. No doubt all of us are acquainted with the outside of the building - but how many have seen the large plant in operation? When I entered the operators' room I was immediately attracted by the swiftness and accurateness with which the girls work- flying fingers traveling over the switch- board, plugging in wires, then one hears a soft voice saying, "Number, please." Upon close observation I found that sec- tions of tiny numbered lights lined the switchboard, each one representing a tele- phone number. The person who interested me the most was the toll operator. She not only takes the call, but keeps a record of the person calling or the phone number, the time sent, the charge, and the date of the call. After leaving the operators' room we were escorted to the two rest rooms, one be- ing a kitchen equipped with many convenf iences and the other an artistically arranged parlor. From here we went down stairs to the plant. On one side of the room were wires strung through a steel frame - these come in from the various lines. If for any reason the wire is out of order, a small metal tab snaps out to designate the trouble. On the opposite side of the room the toll wires are visible. These are somewhat dif- ferent from the local wires as they are en- cased. Some were connected with several different radio stations to test the clearness of the wires. After observing this apparatus we were taken to a room containing many large bat- teries, and from here we went to a long vault containing pipes through which the wires run. Upon the completion of our tour we asked the guide questions. He told us that in the fall the hunters shooting birds often hit the cables causing them to become in- active. While we were walking around, one of the girls discovered a filing cabinet. As we were studying filing at the time, we decided to investigate the new system recently in- stalled at the Telephone Office. Were we not surprised to find the filing cabinet con- tained nothing more than several pairs of old shoes and overalls. -Donna G.

The accommodations are not attractive, but remember you are living at least three thousand years ago. With your parents and sister, you reside in a dwelling some seven or eight feet square surrounded by similar homes. A family of four is consid- ered large.

The town site is chosen for protection from in- vading peoples as well as from the elements. The city council is composed of the heads of the families, the men, and it meets in a kiva. Kivas are circular, suterranean rooms which are also used as churches and game rooms. When the men retire to the church UD, each is left unmolested by his spouse.

Also during this period the woman begins to erect the house which may become hers. The man has nothing to do with these tasks. If the man tires of his mate, he takes his belongings, and throwing his. blanket over his left shoulder, leaves the house, and re- turns to his own people. lf it is the woman who becomes discontented with her partner, she piles his possessions outside the door with the toes of his moccasins pointing from the home. The man, on his return, packs all his belongings and steals silently away. No delay, no expense in their divorce cases, as the house is owned by the girl to share with her second husband when he presents himself. The basis of this description is the talk of a Federal Ranger who acted as our guide on the tour of the ruins. As the marriage cus- toms seemed most interesting for recounting, they are the only ones presented. However, none of the customs have completely dis- appeared, for the Hopi Indians are the mod- ern counterpart of the cliff-dwellers. -Richard Small, '37 THE QUILL 17 ENGLISH KINGS Unwise Richard second, a king much de-It Oh, lyilliam the Norman, the first English I figgeilgst his throne and Pm not sur-f ing, . Tiidaaigncgntral government to England Nextpllffjriry the fourth, usurped the good Thellesglfus his son' who made people Whliihvnniade people afterwards mutter Was William the second, let's skip to the and frown' next. "A Lion of justice" was Henry the first, He wasn't so good, but he might've been worse. The weak hand of Stephen just had a bad time, The Treaty of Wallingford it had to sign. Henry the second, the first Angevin, Over the nobles a few wars did win. He then had a quarrel with clergy and church, But clergyman Becket left him in the lurch. Now Richard the first, with the great third crusade Comes next in turn to the good Chris- tians' aid. ' Then bad John the first, the worst king of all, Did the wrong things, which caused his downfall. Henry the third, a king false and weak, When fighting the barons, seemed very meek. Next Edward the first, we all should admire, Who for a good parliament had a desire. Poor Edward the second, we'll pass sadly by, To find Edwards third and fourth in the pie. They both fought in wars, bold, grim, and great, just to make bigger their army and state. Good Henry the fifth, is next on my mind, He was a smart king as you'll always find. But his easy son king Henry the sixth, Put the poor kingdom into a fix. King Edward the fourth just had to com- pete,- And give Henry fourth a cruel defeat. Let's pass Edward fifth for Richard the third Who was a bad villain and pretty low bird. But he was soon slain and trampled to earth, Then Henry the seventh, gave Tudor kings birth. Now whom do we see but the eighth Henry grand, He was all the time asking for a queen's hand. ' Young Edward the sixth comes next for the task, And only six years did he rightly last. Queen Mary, a woman of strong Catholic rule, Was followed by Bess, an Anglican cool. Next, Jamie the first, threw his hat in the ring. He was the first Stuart to ever be king. But Stuarts come from Scotland, a land of the foeg And English and Scotch all tight, dont' you know. 18 THE QUILL Next Charlie the first tries holding the reins, But he had rebellions for all of his pains. And Oliver Cromwell, a man you all know, To set himself up just wasn't so slow. Costly Charles second, the king who comes next, Sometimes unwisely made people vexed. Next jamie the second, a king autocratic, Was thrown out of office, in a way diplo- matic. To take his soft place in wealth and degree, William of Orange and Mary we see. Then Anne follows after with all of her skill, To put Whigs in office against her stormy will. George first, it does seem, was a German of style, He didn't think English a bit worth his while. Then came a great war 'twixt France and John Bull, To make George the second have trouble in full. Root George the third mixed up with the j stamp tax, Found parliaments with their opinions weren't lax. And soon far-off colonies on the new shore Started to fight and make their guns roar. l And as you all know the colonies won, john Bull's poor redcoats just had to run. He gave independence to all of the states And left them alone to their worldly fates. Low George the fourth, always in debt, 4 Had dissolute habits, and that's a sure bet. Next William the fourth who ruled with a j will, A l Had to help pass the "Great Reform , Bill." Good Queen Victoria next comes to viewg She was Empress of India too. Of Edward the seventh a little l've read, But I can imagine he wasn't so dead. Parliament now says most for the land, But l'll always think that king George was grand. He married a lady, the best at the time, And all of her subjects know she is fine. Next Edward the eighth a pretty smart fellow, Who always is smoking a pipe soft and mellow, Wanted to marry a cute charming lass, But parliament said she wasn't the class. So Edward surrendered his throne and de- gree, just to be free, like you and like me. And now over England, just whom do we view, But good George the sixth, a king very new. -Fred Lake, '39 LUCKY BREAKS Many people put too much faith in what they call "lucky breaks." Some even think that without an unusual "break" they would never get a chance to succeed in life. Henry Ford as a young man started work in a power plant at eleven dollars a week. john D. Rockefeller started at only five dollars a week. These men were not born with silver spoons in their mouths, but they went out on their own initiative and made themselves a chance. They not only fought against handicaps and overcame obstacles but accomplished what they set out to do. It is said that Alexander Graham Bell was laughed to scorn by neighbors when the THE QUILL 19 first time he attempted to demonstrate his telephone to a group of scientists it did not work. Paul Whiteman, for many years called the "Jazz King," was once rejected because he could not play jazz. Did these men wait around for some lucky break to come their way? No, they started working harder than ever. Dis- couraged, perhaps, they may have been, but not defeated. You have probably heard the old saying that luck is a very good word if there is a "P" put before it. Now don't misunderstand me. I don't mean that a lucky break does not help to some degree, because it does, but no such break will ever help anyone who has not the power within himself to take advantage of it. Perhaps it has often happened that some such lucky break has landed many a soft job, but no person will keep a job unless he is equipped with the skill and the knowl- edge that will enable him to make good. Perhaps my point can best be illustrated by the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson when he said, "Shallow men believe in luck and circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect." -Richard Pierce, '37 EVERYDAY RHYMES He who walks with upturned nose Always treads on others' toes. Stuck-up folks with heads on high Will get stepped on by and by. Don't forget, for pity's sake, It takes a while to cook a cake, And if you have remarks to make, Wait till they have time to bake. -Loretta F. Beckwith, '38 TAKE A GUESS Quite the rage are the various "brain teasers" in the current publications. Not to be outdone 'by our contemporaries we submit our contribution to the national headache.

Richard Pierce By Leslie Grafam Larry Edwards THE QUILL 21 School News SENIOR CLASS As the good ship "37" entered the Straits of the Senior Year on its way to the port of Graduation we picked as our officers: president, Gerald Harriman, vice-president, June Gallant, secretary-treasurer, Claire Buckley. We were very glad to welcome some new members to our crew. They are Jeannette Robertson of Skowhegan. Ivan Little from Martha's Vineyard, Mass., and Cornelius Bushnell from Cony High. Richard Gin- grow, who moved to West Virginia after his freshman year, also returned to our crew. The members of the "37's" crew who col- laborate with the high command, Mr. Woodman and teachers, and are known as the Student Council are Robert Goggin, president, Forrest Hubbard, Claire Buckley, Anna Goodspeed, Betty Pomeroy, Barbara Hubbard, Robert Killam, and Gerald Har- riman. The first event in which the senior class figured prominently was the senior play. This play, "Guess Again," was adjudged the best senior play in years. A capacity audience told the rest of the story. The cast, under the excellent direction of Miss Longfellow, responded with a show that will be long remembered. A delicate mixture of mystery and comedy gave the play its plot. The cast of characters was as follows: Olive Ordway, Geraldine Betts, S. H. Pratt, David Jamison, Mrs. Skinner, Betty Pomeroy, Dora Mae Skinner, June Gallantg Sol Messer, Larry Edwards, Mr. Grimes, Augustus De- mersg Bertie Blodgett, Forrest Hubbard, Lord Wiggleton, Richard Small, Renee Lamour, Claire Buckley, Waldo Fitts, James Foote, Lucy Perkens, Anna Goodspeedg Bill Doug- las, Richard Pierce, Janet Moore, Garnet Peterson, Marcella Jenks, Betty Hooper. The senior booth at the Athletic Fair was prettily decorated in a plaid pattern of the class colors, green and white. The decorat- ing committee included June Gallant, Ger- ald Harriman, Larry Edwards, Louise Astle Richard Pierce, Elmo Clough, Lucille Mac- Donald, and Freelan Nelson. Anna Goodspeed, one of the most popu- lar seniors, was elected as the representative of the school for the annual D. A. R. pil- grimage contest. Although she was not fortunate enough to win, Anna was pre- sented with the Citizenship Award by the local D. A. R. chapter. The award was a bronze medal with a bas-relief of George Washington on the front and a place for the engraving of the recipient's name on the reverse. A representative of Westbrook Junior College spoke to the girls and gave them all catalogues of the school. We voted to wear caps and gowns for our graduation. A few of the musical-comedy minded girls wanted to have white caps and gowns for themselves. Of course, a loud protest rose from the boys, and Mr. Wood- man agreed that the idea was very imprac- tical. The class feels proud to have advanced money enough to facilitate buying an am- plifying system for the auditorium and gymnasium. As graduation draws near we find that the following people receive our highest honors: Valedictorian, David Jamison, Salutatorian, Frances Welch, Class Essay, 1 Z2 THE QUILL Betty Pomeroy, Class Oration, Richard Pierce, Class History, Anita' Dale, Class Prophecy, Everett Bowie, Anna Goodspeed, Alice Lowell, Class Gifts, Gerald Harriman, Chestine Soper, Arthur Tatlock. JUNIOR CLASS The first meeting of the junior class was held in October to elect the class officers for the coming year. The following were elected: Robert Newhouse, president, Dex- ter Fowles, vice-president, Ann Pomerleau, secretary-treasurer, Hattie Dodge and Wil- bert Eastman, representatives to the Stu- dent Council. All gold with a small strip of black onyx were the colors chosen this year by the jun- iors for their class rings. The ring has the raised letter "G" with "Gardiner" on the small black strip just below. On the sides of the ring is the date, 1938. Ar the annual Athletic Fair held on December 18, 1936, the junior booth was attractively decorated in the class colors, blue and white. Thanks goes to many stu- dents for their aid in decorating, soliciting, and to those who worked on the booth. The total profit was 51565. The junior play committee, consisting of Ann Pomerleau, Kathleen Luttrell, Hattie Dodge, Hazel Clough, Lawrence Creamer, and Carroll Grady, with the aid of Mr. Danforth, chose the humorous play, "O Clarissa." The cast of characters was as follows: Q. Norris Weatherbee Lawrence Caney Q. Norris Weatherbee, Sr. Herbert Fish Clarissa Weatherbee Natalie Cousens Verona Weatherbee Mercedes Follansbee The Weatherbee's Cook Virginia Turcotte Robert N ewliouse Roscoe Downing Lawrence Creamer Eloise Wood Elwood Church Louise Quinn The Swami-B'Hhami Windsor O'Reilly Eleanora Cabot-Lodge Reginald Cabot-Lodge Mrs. Cabot-Lodge SOPHOMORE CLASS The following oilicers were elected by the sophomore class at their first meeting: Car- roll Newhouse, president, Leroy McDonald, vice-president, Margaret Church, secretary and treasurer, Katherine Buckley, repre- sentative to the Student Council. On October 9 the freshman-sophomore reception was held. There were twenty-six people in the receiving line, which was an unusually large number. The gym was gaily decorated in the two class colors, red and white, and yellow and white. During the evening refreshments and games were enjoyed by all those present. At the Athletic Fair the sophomores had an attractive booth of yellow and white at which home-cooked food was sold. y The sophomore class is well represented in football, basketball, track, debating, dra- matics, and all musical activities. ln Dra- matic Club plays, G-Club Minstrels, and prize speaking, sophomores have played important roles. FRESHMAN CLASS ln September the freshman class held their first meeting and elected the following officers: president, William Norton, vice- president, Helen Gallant, secret:ry-treas- THE QUILL 23 urer, Lois Farrell, representative to Student Council, Gloria Norton. At the Athletic Fair the freshman class had a White Elephant table which, to- gether with the cards, brought in i'p98.25. On February ll, 1937, a class meeting was held and Roland Hopkins was elected president of the freshman class for the re- mainder of the year. OUR NEW DEPARTMENT HEADINGS We are fortunate this year in having at- tractive new cuts for the heads of two of the departments in the "QU1LL." The drawings for these cuts were made by students of our school, the cut heading the Jokes Department was drawn by Hilda johnson, of the freshman class, and that of the Literary Department by Grant Staples, of the senior class. LONG ASSEMBLIES The Wednesday assemblies have been very interesting and educational this year. The programs have been varied, consisting of speakers, motion pictures, and musical entertainment. Some of the speakers were exceptionally instructive as well as interest- ing. Dr. Charles Barker of Grand Rapids gave a very impressive talk. He pointed out the fact that we must train our minds to do work whether we want to do it or not and we must learn to think things through for ourselves. Another Wednesday we were delighted in having Mrs. Guy Holt give a number of readings for our entertainment. A very striking thing was her rendition of "The Highwaymanf' This same day Miss Betty Curry gave a tap dance. Other instructive speakers were Mr. Harvey R. Pease, clerk of the House of Rep- resentatives, Mr. Samuel Slosberg and Mr. Ernest L. Goodspeed, prominent lawyers in our city, and Mr. E. E. Roderick, Deputy Commissioner of Education, who spoke on the federal and state governments and their work of the legislative, executive, and judic- ial departments. Also the U. S. Constitu- tion and the Supreme Court were subjects much discussed. The Rev. Ruth Walsh gave a very inter- esting demonstration and discourse on al- cohol education. She pointed out that al- cohol is indispensable in industry but that its effects on living tissues are narcotic, de- terrent, and habit-forming. C. Harry Edwards, Director of Physical Education, stressed the fact that we must exercise physically as well as mentally. He recommended hiking as a very fine way to exercise. The Rev. Tom G. Akeley commented on the fine way in which the students conduct themselves on the school grounds. n He said, "You students have been very fine neighbors to me and I certainly appre- ciate it." Motion pictures on safety on the high- ways have been shown and education films on physics and chemistry were presented to the much interested students. The glee club furnished a fine program of selections. DRAMATIC CLUB Under the able direction of Miss Anna B. Longfellow, dramatics coach, the Dramatic Club has been a success in very fine produc- tions. The oflicers of the Club are as follows: President Forrest Hubbard Vice-President Robert Newhouse 24 THE QUILL Secretary Anna Goodspeed it was well received by the student body and Treasurer Priscilla Chadwick the public.

Some sort of entertainment precedes the business meeting, which is followed by games and refreshments. At present the membership includes 16 seniors, 12 juniors, 8 sophomores, and 4 freshmen. Tryouts are held each fall for those wishing to enter this organization. The two one-act plays presented at the fair this year were "Kidnapping Betty" and "Memory Rose." They were both very fine plays, well-presented by 11 of the talented members of the club under the direction of Miss Longfellow. The casts of these plays were: KIDNAPPING BETTY Thomas Demers Charles Pickering Paul Fleming Mercedes Follansbee Geneva Mann Barbara Bourassa Maude Rice Dan Fielding Nat Meadows Bud Simpson Betty Meadows Mollie Fielding Joanna Fielding Sally Perkins MEMORY RosE judge james Cary Richard Small Dr. Frederick Irwin Robert Newhouse Mary Uudge Cary's former wifel lane Ward Lois CMary's daughterj lane Ward On January 2 the club presented to the public a costume lecture by Mrs. Esther Cunningham of Waterville assisted by 25 of the fair sex of the club and the school. Although it was the iirst of its kind, The annual Dramatic Club Play was pre- sented on March 5 at the high school audi- torium. "Big Hearted Herbert" was the choice of the club and a very fine cast was chosen. This play was well presented and it turned out to be a financial success. The cast of the play was as follows: Bic- HEARTED HERBERT James Foote lulie Roberts Augustus Demers Thomas Demers Jane Ward Robert Newhouse Richard Small Mercedes Follansbee Kathaleen Luttrell Lawrence Creamer Marguerite Waller Roland Whittier Natalie Cousens The club also competed in the one-act play contest held at Augusta on April 10.

ATHLETIC FAIR This year the fair was held December 18. The gymnasium and booths were attract- ively decorated in the class colors. The fair started off with two one-act plays "Memory Rose" and "Kidnappin' Betty" presented by the Dramatic Club. Music was furnished by the high school or- chestra between the plays. Afterwards most of the audience went down to the gymnasium where fancy work, novelties, cooked food, candies, and other refresh- ments were sold. Later in the evening a dance was held with music furnished by Gordon Howe and the Blue Romancers. All who attended voted it one of the best fairs ever held in Gardiner. The seniors made a profit of 526.27 on their candy boothg the juniors, 51165, on ice cream and soda pop in their unique "igloo"g the sophomores' total receipts on their cooked food booth amounted to fB24.4Og and the freshmen realized a sum of 398.25 on their white elephant table. The general profits amounted to 57910, which gave 5244.27 for the total amount earned by the classes. "G" CLUB MINSTREL SHOW A fast moving minstrel show, "julia's Wedding," directed by David F.' Kelley was presented on February 8 and 9 by the "G" Club.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL AND COMMITTEES On October second the Student Council had its first meeting, at which the following officers were elected: president, Robert Gog- ging vicefpresident, Robert Newhouse, sec- retary, Wilbert Eastman. The members of this governing body had been previously chosen by the faculty and the members of the various classes. Those from the senior class were Robert Goggin, Gerald Harriman, Forrest Hubbard, Betty Pomeroy, Anna Goodspeed, Barbara Hub- bard, and Robert Killam. Those chosen by the other classes were Robert Newhouse, Wilbert Eastman, and Hattie Dodge, jun- iorsg Carroll Newhouse, and Katherine Buckley, sophomore, and Roland Hopkins and Gloria Norton, freshmen. Many of the seniors in this I body are chairmen of the various committees which conduct a great deal of the more important and necessary duties and activities of the school. Each chairman is supported by a group of the students of the four classes. Probably the most important and most numerous of these committees is the Halls Committee, of which Forrest Hubbard is chairman with Mrs. Helen Harlow, teacher advisor. The monitors this year were the following: regulars, Ruth Berry, Priscilla Chadwick, Elmo Clough, Augustus Demers, james Foote, June Gallant, Robert Goggin, Anna Goodspeed, Gerald Harriman, David Jamison, Hope Long, Lewis Lozier, Lucille MacDonald, Freelan Nelson, Betty Pom' eroy, Richard Small, Grant Staples, and Elizabeth Webber, substitutes, Everett Bowie, Claire Buckley, Anita Dale, Harry Drisko, Thelma Drisko, Naomi Dunton, Arnold Hall, Louis Hanley, Betty Hooper, Barbara Hubbard, Yvonne Pellerin, and Carol Storm. The duty of this group is to keep order in the halls at all times. Another important group is the Public Service Committee at the head of which is Claire Buckley under the guidance of Miss Mildred E. Coombs. The able assistants of Miss Buckley are Betty Hooper, Thelma Drisko, Eva Smith, James Gordon, Paul Morse, Natalie Cousens, Louise Quinn, and Kathleen Luttrell. These students serve as ushers at school activities. What would the long assemblies be like without the Program Committee to find talented students and interesting speakers? This capacity has been very well filled by Barbara Hubbard with the fine assistance of june Gallant, Laurence Edwards, Ann Pomerleau, Kay Buckley, and Lois Farrell, under the guiding hand of Principal Orlando C. Woodman. Student Welfare has been well looked after by a committee under the guidance of Miss Charlotte jewett. This group is com- prised of the following students: Chairman Anna Goodspeed, Lucille MacDonald, Rich- ard Pierce, Eloise Wood, Thomas Demers, and Ellen Pomerleau, The Girls' Lockers Committee consists of Betty Pomeroy, chairman, and Betty Webber, Yvonne Pellerin, Ruth Brown, Eva Whittier, and Natalie Goodspeed, with Miss Doris Newman as advisor.

Gn March ll, both our teams partici- pated in a practice debate with Cony at Gardiner. The following Saturday, March 13, our teams went to Augusta to take part in a practice debate with different Cony teams. The negative team travelled to Winslow on Friday afternoon, March 19, where they defeated Winslow High School by a 3-O decision. In this debate Dexter Fowles was chosen best speaker. Our good fortune also included the affirm- ative team, which defeated Waterville High School the same evening by a 3-O decision. Thomas Demers was chosen best speaker at that time.

Neverthe- less he would still be of the faculty and hold the position of Director of Athletics. Lancelot Cooper, a graduate of Cony High School in 1931 and of Springfield College in 1935, was chosen as the succeeding coach. Since that time we of Gardiner High School have come to know and like Coach Cooper and hope that he will hold the position as coach for many years to come. FOOTBALL SCHEDULE G.H.S.

How- ever, after a few practice sessions last Sep- tember the coach didn't seem too greatly worried about our prospects. G.H.S. 27 - WINT1-mov 0 With Co-captain Drisko leading the way Gardiner High successfully began the sea- son by handing a weaker team from Win- throp a 27 to O drubbing. Drisko scored two of the four touchdowns, one of them after a 29-yard gallop in the third period. Speedy Bob Newhouse accounted for the third in the second and Pete Lozier for the fourth in the third period. G.H.S. O - BRUNSWICK 6 A sixty-five yard march in the second period, terminated by a 25-yard dash by Estes, Brunswick halfback, gave the visitors the edge in a closely fought game. Three different times Gardiner was in the shadow of the Brunswick goal, but each time they lacked the punch to put it across. How- ever, the Gardiner defense looked good and the opposing team found it to be anything but a pushover. G.H.S. O - Moizss O Despite the fact that the game was played on a slippery, muddy field, a stubborn, hard- hitting Gardiner eleven held the Ship City boys from a more or less conceded victory, four times repelling the Morse drives that reached deep into our territory. Drisko, although a marked man, was easily our out- standing star, while the entire fighting, driv- ing line was something to marvel at, with McNally, Gould, and Creamer most out- standing. G.H.S. O - WATERVILLE 22 Only a very few loyal orange and black rooters braved the downpour to see a pow- erful purple or rather muddy brown eleven 60 THE QUILL take the local boys to the tune of 22 to O. Quimby Field was a veritable lake when the two teams waded onto it to begin the game. flncidentally it was in this game that Gar- diner christened their new jerseysb. The "Windy City" lads carried the game from the very beginning, and although they had as many bad breaks as we did, they seemed to have little trouble in running up the score in their favor. G.H.S. 20- Bownom Fnosu O Led again by Drisko, who carried the ball on practically every play, Gardiner High whitewashed the Bowdoin Frosh B team 20 to O. Before the first two minutes of play, Drisko tallied the first touchdown, and then proceeded to score again in the same period. The Bowdoin coach used practic- ally three whole teams in trying to stop the onslaught of the Gardiner eleven, but it was of no avail. Only once did the Polar Bears threaten, that being in the second period and the half ended to stop the advance. G.H.S. 32 - ROCKLAND 6 This was perhaps the most surprising game of the season, when the boys in or- ange and black from Gardiner completely put to rout a team from the "Lime City" who had only one defeat before in this sea- son. When on the opening play, Skinner, Rockland half-back, loped wide around right end for 52-yards to a touchdown, our prospects looked none too good. However, then more determined to win than ever, the locals began to go places and when the half ended the score was 18-6 in their favor. In the second half the same good work was carried on and ended in a margin of 21 points for the home team. Bob Killam, Gardiner right end, played an exceptionally good game. G.H.S. O - CONY 6 A blocked kick early in the first period gave the red and white team a chance to score, and although they threatened several other times, a hard hitting, determined Gar- diner team held them to the single touch- lt is best to say that the game was a down. typical Cony-Gardiner clash. There were several outstanding players on each team but the teams as a whole were ones of which their respective coaches could well be proud. Perhaps the encounter was a bit more dramatic than usual because of the fact that Coach Cooper of Gardiner and Coach Mendall of Cony were class-mates at Cony High School and have been the greatest of friends since. G.H.S. 6 we HALLOWELL 33 This was probably the worst licking that a Hallowell eleven has ever handed out to a Gardiner team. The fact that it happened only four days after the Cony game is per- haps the best explanation of the defeat. To add to all this the field was wet and slippery and there were many spills and fumbles. The third period seemed to be our Water- loo when the "Granite City" boys scored a total of Z1 points. Bob Newhouse, speedy Gardiner half-back, prevented another score for Hallowell in the third when he out-ran Vigue, Hallowell full-back, and nailed him on the fifteen-yard line after Vigue had intercepted a Gardiner pass. G.H.S. 6- SKOWHEGAN 13 This defeat should not be blamed en- tirely upon the players, but partially upon the fact that this was theithird game played within a period of seven days. However, in spite of this fact, the locals were tied with the Skowhegan club at the end of the third period. A recovered fumble in the final THE QUILL 61 period gave the up-river lads the ball and a chance to account for the winning score. LETTER WINNERS Seniors: Harry Drisko and Bob Killam, co-captainsg Larry Edwards and Richard Pierce, managers, Richard Dill, Bob Goggin, james Grimes, Lorne Ladner, Lewis Lozier, Frank McNally, and Freelan Nelson. Juniors: Louis Bryant, Lawrence Creamer, Bob Newhouse, Lauriston Rice, and Nor- man Rogers. Sophomores: Donald Gould and Ernest Dionne. BASKETBALL The hoop season was inaugurated this year with a series of class games. In the first two games the seniors and the juniors won from the sophomores and the fresh- men respectively. Next, the juniors took the seniors by one point to win the cham- pionship and the freshmen beat the sopho- mores to take third place. VARSITY SCHEDULE G. H. S. Opp. Jan. Waterville Away 6 54 Ian.

Waterville Home ZZ Feb Hallowell Away 26 Feb Fairiield Away 13 Feb Cony Home 21 Feb. 17 Oakland Away 19 51 G.H.S. 6 - WATERVILLE 54 The orange and black hoopsters started the season off very poorly by losing to the boys in purple and white by the decidedly one-sided victory of 54-6. It may be inter- esting to know that Gardiner did not score one basket from the floor, the six points all being foul shots. The Panthers seemed to score almost at will with LaFleur, right for- ward, leading the way with fifteen points. G.H.S. 26 - HALLOWELL 25 Showing surprisingly different form from that in the Waterville game, the Gardiner boys, led by Rogers' and Foster's shooting and McNally's brilliant offensive passing, completely put to rout the Hallowell team for three periodsg however in the fourth Dick Ballard, Hallowell forward, unleashed a furious attack to bring the score within one point of a tie at the final whistle. G.H.S. 38- OAKLAND 19 Again led by McNally, Rogers, and Fos- ter the local club took a powerful team from Williams High by the comfortable margin of nineteen points. Rogers and Foster took the honors in points, each with a total of twelve. This was a rough but fast game and proved to be very exciting. G.H.S. 29 - CONY 27 This was doubtlessly the fastest, toughest, and most exciting game of the entire season. During the first three periods the lead see- sawed from one team to the otherg how- ever, in the last of the fourth the local quin- tet staged a rush and overcame the Rams by two points. Captain McNally, lanky center of the Gardiner team, led his team not only in tallying but in both offensive and defensive work. He scored a total of fifteen points. G.H.S. 35 - FAIRFIELD 24 This game was of special interest at the time because Lawrence was in second place in the Northern Division of the League, 62 THE QUILL whereas Gardiner was in the same position in the Southern Division of the League. Norman Rogers' faultless shooting played an important part in the Orange and Black victory, the speedy forward accounting for nineteen of the locals' points. McNally played his usual fine game and he and Rogers and Foster were without doubt the most outstanding players of the encounter. G.H.S. 22 - WATERVILLE 25 Proving to be a far better team than in the first encounter with Waterville, the local club caused the up-river quintet a great deal of anxiety when the half ended with Gardi- ner leading by three points. The Rogers- Foster combination clicked well as usual ac- counting for the majority of our points. However, Waterville proved themselves su- perior and won by a margin of three points, gained early in the fourth period. G.H.S. Z6 A HALLOWELL 31 Although the Hallowell outfit led all the way, the battle was a close one with Gardi- ner threatening several times in the course of the game. The failure to sink shots in the final period lost the game for Gardiner as well as the fact that Hallowell was thirst- ing for revenge. G.H.S. 13 - FAIRFIELD 21 Accurate shooting and a consistent pass- ing attack on the part of Lawrence gave them an early lead which they kept through- out the game. ' Our own attack noticeably showed the loss of Rogers, who was ill at the time. G.H.S. 14ACoNY 21 The Gardiner team, greatly crippled by sickness, was outplayed by the Cony boys and taken finally by the score of Z1 to 14, None of the Gardiner boys played their usual good game with perhaps the excep- tion of McNally, who played a fine game even though he was suffering from a back injury received in the Fairfield game. Had they beaten Cony, the Orange and Black would probably have been invited to the tournament at Skowhegan. G.H.S. 19 - OAKLAND 51 Williams High surely gained revenge for the beating that they took on the Gardiner floor. Their accurate shooting and knowl- edge on their own floor was greatly to their advantage. In this as well as in the two previous games with Cony and Fairfield the crippled condition of the Grange and Black aggregation was a great factor in determin- ing the defeat. LETTER WINNERS Captain, Frank McNally, Manager, Rob- ert Stultzg Arnold Hall, Lorne Ladner, Richard Dill, Harry Drisko, Freelan Nelson, Richard Pierce, Norman Rogers, Joseph Foster, Carroll Grady. HOCKEY Even though this year was not very suc- cessful as far as the winning of games was concerned, it served to show the local fans and others that the Gardiner boys, still green at the game, will develop teams in the near future that will probably elevate hockey to a major sport in Gardiner High School. Since this is only the second year at ice hockey for Gardiner, Coach Hinds was greatly heartened by this season's showing. G.H.S. O - CONY 4 The Orange and Black sextet, although outplayed, presented an aggressive combi- THE QUILL 63 nation that kept the Cony boys on edge most of the game. In the first period Cony scored once, but from then on until the final period the two teams battled it out with neither scoring. However, in the final our boys could not stop the onslaught of the Cony veterans, who slipped three more by Drisko, Gardiner goalie. G.H.S. O - CONY 4 In what proved to be almost a duplicate of the first ice encounter between these two schools the superior endurance of the Cony club finally overcame the Gardiner sextet in the final period. Drisko's fine stopping kept the score down to a low margin. G.H.S. 1 - WILTON Z Coming out from a one to nothing lead taken by Gardiner in the first period, the Wilton Academy boys took charge of the last two periods by playing deep in the Gar- diner territory and finally coming out on top with a one point lead. G.H.S. 1- KENTS HILL 5 Despite the fact that the local team was taken by a much better team from Kents Hill, they played one of the best games that they have played this season. Their pass- ing and defense work showed wonderful improvement over previous playing. G.H.S. 8 - SO. PORTLAND 3 This game showed the outstanding abil- ity of several of the Gardiner players, espe- cially that of Gerald Harriman, Robert Gog- gin, Donald Gould, and Harry Drisko. Harriman and Goggin formed a passing and scoring combination that kept the visitors on the go every minute. Gould's defense work and Drisko's goalie stops marked their abilities many times in the duration of the game. GIRLS' BASKETBALL ALUMNAE 21 - GARDINER 7 With the old combination of Grimes at guard and Donovan at forward, the Alum- nae kept in the lead throughout the game. Captain Hubbard and Rachel Rines were the only scorers for our lassies, while Mar- garet Donovan and Beulah Baker gathered up the goals for the graduates. HALLOWELL 38 - GARDINER 16 Hallowell's team continued adding an- other win to their string of victories by over- taking our lassies in a well-fought game. Leading practically from the first quarter on, our girls did their best to stop their op- ponents. Captain Hubbard did most of the scoring for the Orange and Black. OAKLAND 10 - GARDINER 24 Conquering the jinx that had been hov- ering over them for the last two years, the locals showed what they really could do, by overcoming the visitors with a surprise victory. Capt. Hubbard led her girls' ag- gregation by scoring 15 points. MacDon- ald played her usual steady game, stopping many a Williams basket. CONY 32 - GARDINER 4 Slipping back after their win earlier in the week, the locals failed to come through to gain another victory. Cony used three teams, but Gardiner was unable to take ad- vantage of this. Captain Hubbard and Hooper each scored 2 points. 64 THE QUILL FAIRFIELD 38 - GARDINER 9 Again our lassies could not get away from their bad luck and were defeated again by the visiting Lawrence High from Fair- field. Although a string of substitutes were used, Gardiner was unable to come through. HALLOWELL 32 - GARDINER 11 The Hallowell team again overtook our girls in a one-sided battle. Claire Buckley showed up well in this game, being the high scorer with 8 points. FAIRFIELD 37 - GARDINER 9 Gardiner was unable to put a stop to the everlasting basket-dropping of Levesque, clever Fairfield forward. Claire Buckley, using her left, was again high scorer for our team. CONY 28 - GARDINER 7 Using practically every player on the team, Cony again won from Gardiner in a hard fought game., The visitors played a good game, as did our fighting sextet. WILLIAMS 48 - GARDINER 18 As the last game of the season came round, much hope by the girls for a win was displayed. Lucille MacDonald started the game as center forward, playing a good game at her first try at forward. Every girl played a hard game and did her best for a victory, but did not succeed. This ended the basketball season for our girls. Basketball letters were awarded to the following players in assembly by our Coach, Miss Doris Newman. Captain Barbara Hubbard, Lucille MacDonald, Mary Cox, Claire Buckley, Betty Hooper, Kay Buck- ley, Deanie Ulmer, Gloria Norton, Mar- garet Dunn, Manager Leona Etycheson. TENNIS With 3 veterans and about 17 new play- ers working under the coaching of Miss Doris Newman, there are good prospects for a successful season. The experienced players are Anna Goodspeed, Lucille Mac- Donald, and Margaret Dunn. These girls competed for the championship of Kenne- bec Valley last spring and should be right up in there this year. ANSWERS TO TI-IE TEST ON PAGES 19-20 1. Lewis Carroll 2. Thirty 3. Athletics 4.

BETTER VISION brings Happiness! Good eyesight is essential to the real enjoyment of life. Eyestrain and poor vision cast a shadow that can seldom be completely erased. You wouldn't take a million dollars for your eyes, yet only a few pennies' worth of cheap electricity will provide the right amount of light nec' essary to protect them in reading, sewing and other seeing tasks. PROTECT PRECIOUS EYESIGHT WITH BETTER SIGHT LAMPS Better Sight Lamps bring joy to those who appreciate and value their eyesight. The I E S tag on a lamp assures sight-saving light. It is your protection, because these lamps provide proper light for seeing tasks.
