THE QUILL MAIN ENTRANCE A GARDINER HIGH SCHOOL If the walls of our high school could talk, Many varied tales could be told Of the different personalities who walk Each year from its great threshold. Some have become known in the world of fame And are proud of their Gardiner heritage. Others have gone out and accomplished their aim ln the working world of this day and age. May we not only be proud of Gardiner High But may she be proud of us, as well. Our love for her will remain 'til we die And her praises we ever will tell. e Editor-in-Chief H-if'-E'Literary?-T+L-'J IMPORTANCE OF A HIGH SCHOOL TO A COMMUNITY Have you ever thought of what a com- munity would be like without a high school? Think how much the activities in any com- munity center around such an institution. Of course, this pertains particularly to small communities where there are not many clubs and other organizationsg but it also pertains to large cities to a marked degree. Sports, s u c h as football, basketball, hockey, baseball, and track, provide enter- tainment for hundreds of people. These activities in the school prevent juvenile delinquency, as they keep the students occupied. The parents, teachers, friends, and students are brought in close contact with each other, improving public relations. Musical groups of any high school not only furnish entertainment for the residents of the town, but they bring out the talents of the young people. Band, orchestra, and glee club concerts, minstrels, and operettas are given from time to time during the school year. In addition, the school band plays for civic organizations, parades, and special events. Dramatics, public speaking, and debating are other activities that are enjoyed and shared by the students with the people of the community. It is easy to see how the community is built around the high school and also to see how dull the life of the average citizen would be without this institution. - Alice Gray, '50 THIS IS IT Well, here we are! After all these years we've finally made it. As we look back over our school days, we think how fast the time has flown, but we also remember how very often we sat in school wishing the time away, little realizing how fortunate we really were. Now we sit back and recall the many happy times and experiences we have encountered in school. Each of us thinks of it in a different light, now as he begins to realize just how im- portant education is, and he asks himself, "Have I done my best? Am I ready for that which is ahead of me?" These questions dominate our minds as we leave school. We will now be on our own. Our success and happiness depends upon how we have developed our powers of con- centration and stick-to-it-iveness to aid us in our quest of the future. - Franklin Looke, '50 SPIRIT The word "spirit" has many meanings. In one sense it means a supernatural thing, a ghost. In another way "spirit" means a drink or medicine that stimulates. And in still another sense it means vitality and vigorousness. Yet there is still another kind of "spirit," a kind you cannot touch, but is very evident - School Spirit. School Spirit, as most people see it, is the cheering and encouraging that goes on while a school is competing with another school in some sports such as baseball, football, or track. But is that all that School Spirit means? I.,et's hope not!! Of course, that part is very important, but let's think of other places such as the dramatic club, the band and orchestra, the school dances, the tag days, the banquets, the school rules, the pupil's attitude toward their teachers, and- last but not least - the studies where it is equally important. School Spirit, therefore, is something that takes in all the meanings of the word "spirit." School Spirit is a little ghost that lives in each of the students. It is a stimulant and medicine to any person or organization inthe school that needs its support. It is vigorous and full of vitality at football games and other fields of competition. School Spirit is a thing that flows through 8 THE QUILL the corridors, into the study halls, into the minds of the teachers and students, down from the school, and along Main Street with a group of babbling young people, into the corner drugstore, out to the basketball games, into the school dances, and on into our homes. School Spirit is a living thing, and it is a thing that our school, Gardiner High School, has and always hopes to have. - Barbara Dessler, l52 RESPONSIBILITY IN SCI-IOGL Who is responsible for what we achieve in school? We ourselves are. Now is a good time to consider whether or not we are taking all the responsibility for our school work that we should. Let us all make sure that we get the most out of our work. Teachers give us assign- ments, and it is our reponsibility to master those assignments to the best of our ability. If there is anything we do not understand, we should go to the teachers for special help, as they are always willing to give it. It is very important that we give our atten- tion to the work in all classes. If we are absent from school at any time, we should report to the teachers when we return for make-up. We must not expect the teachers to look us up. We have many opportunities to accept responsibility in sports, dramatics, music and other activities in our school. If we take this responsibility upon ourselves from day to day, we shall be more successful in our school work. - Diane Robbins, '52 VOCATIONS The dictionary defines a vocation as "the work, profession, particular state or business for which one is specially fitted for a life work." We who are in high school should give more than a little thought to this definition, because most of us will soon come face to face with the problem of what our vocations are- for what life work we are best suited. This is the time when we should decide, at least tentatively, what work we are interested in doing. We who have ideas in mind should read about those fields which appeal to us to ascertain the opportunities for entering them, and should talk to people who are engaged in those occupations in order to see the actual work- ing set-up. Those of us who seem to have no definite ideas about vocations should read about and become acquainted with all the different fields in which there may be openings, and we should talk to people engaged in many different types of jobs. For any of us who expect to be able to continue our education beyond high school, thought about vocations now will help a great deal because it will enable us to more intelligently choose a college or school and will prevent us from wasting time taking unnecessary courses once we are there. For those of us who intend to get jobs after graduation this realization of our own in- terests and knowledge of 'available opporf tunities will be of value in finding work in which we will be happy. - Jane Dineen, '51 UNCLE SAM Americans often ask themselves, "Who is Uncle Sam?" Ask anyone that question and what would you get for an answer? Some might say, "Why, Uncle Sam is our country, our government, and our armed forcesf' Others might respond, "Uncle Sam is the farmer, the men on the streets, the man in the oflice, and others who help to make up this country." I would say, "Uncle Sam is you and I and the hundred thirty million other Americans who are willing to do something for their country." - Robert Nixon, '50 MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT There were many presidents in our land, And every one was surely grand. But the one I liked the best of all Was the sixteenth one that took the wall. THE QUILL 9 He took on many noble deeds And saw our country finally freed, He wrote the most famous speech of all And saved our nation from a fall. And if I were to follow one Of all the presidents of our nation, Abraham Lincoln would be the oneg But I could never fill his station. - Richard Ayer, '51 STAGE FRIGHT The great day had come! I was to make a trembling debut on the public platform before a motley array of vociferous school- mates. The subject of my oration lay for- gotten in the cobwebby corners of my memory, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't brush aside the remembrance of the horrid, trembling fear which assailed me. The 9:30 assembly bell had rung. After having been arranged on the stage along with several seasoned victims, I sat stiifly on the edge of my straight-backed chair, fully expecting some hideous monster to leap at me from the yet unparted stage cur- tains. The several experienced members of our troop slid furtively to "peep-holes" in the curtain, out of which they cast appre- hensive glances at the auditorium which was being filled by a pushing clamorous onslaught of teen-aged humanity. Suddenly they scuttled back to their places. In my fear-stricken state of mind, I could hear the principal clear his throat - a bit too aud- ibly -to secure attention. I had only time to transfer a fingernail-gnawed hand to my lap before the century-old stage curtains lurched tipsily and opened. Our stiff, patrician principal, a member of the "get the worst over with first" school, smiled sanctimoniously at the massive sea of faces and pompously introduced the first speaker. The subject sounded rather boring, so I settled back in my chair. A titter of impatience ran nimbly through the audi- ence, and several motioning glances were directed towards our end of the platform. Huh? What? Oh! They were waiting for me! I had to speak first. I rose lumberingly, fearing my knees would give way any minute and proceeded cautiously to the center of the stage. At that moment I sincerely wished that the platform would open gigantic jaws and de- vour me on the spot. But the platform, although slightly rickety, had no intention of caving in now, after having endured several decades of trembling orators. Sud- denly the first words of my talk assailed my blank mind. Hesitantly I begang and as the titters faded into silence, I gained a little more confidence. Then, so quickly that I feared I had left something out, I reached the climaxg and after a final pun that no- body laughed at, with a deep sigh of relief, I settled back into my chair. Public Speaking? Nothing to it! -Ann Folke, '51 THOUGHTS "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know," I think of snow flakes tumbling through the still air of early evening and children with two adoring parents huddled around a cozy wood fire thankful for what they have. "Where tree tops glisten," I think of the unlighted tree with a shiny silver star at the very top, which to this family is as bright as the stars in heaven. "And children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow." I-Iere, I think of the children dashing to the window. They listen, quiet as mice, to hear the bells on the one-horse-drawn sleigh as it steals away into the silent night. x "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card I write." As I write Christmas greetings, once more my thoughts turn to the drifting snow and the humble country home. ' "May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white!" I think of the children growing up and having homes of their own. With them goes this wish. - Mabel Ash, '50 10 T H E A 1950 FIRESIDE JOURNEY Come with me if our country you would quickly scan while cosily seated by your fireside. In Boston town we'll take time for a Tea Party of our own, and before we leave we'll surely have codfish cakes and baked beans too. Then Plymouth Rock we'll view with awe, remembering well that First Thanks- giving Day. On we go to Providence, a lovely city in our very smallest state. Roger Williams, we are told, made it famous long ago. We visit New York City, the grandest in our land. Here we see the Statue of Lib- erty shining forth the light of freedom. Long days it would take us to see all the wonders of this great city. Next, proudly we scan the Midwest's largest city, Chicago, the city of much wind. Many hours here we spend at the Natural History Museum. St. Louis, Missouri, so rich in historical lore, holds us spellbound. We are told that years ago trappers used to come and go on that old Mississippi shore. But on we must hasten to Detroit, the pride and joy of our state of Michigan. Here we well know is manufactured almost every make of car. Cleveland, too, we must not skip on old Lake Erie in our great state of Ohio. This many a year great ships have in its harbor come and gone. In Milwaukee on Lake Michigan's shore we feast on many fine dairy foods, while historical facts about them are unfolded to us. Much Indian lore here can be learned. We spend a little time in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the beautiful story of Minnehaha and Hiawatha originated. CThis famous poem we all should read.j On, on we go, through Indianapolis, Indiana, to see that land so fair and grand where the Wabash River flows along. Now we are on the crest of Pikes Peak in Colorado, and towns and cities for miles around we view. At last, at last! We reach that great West Coast. On famous Puget Sound, in Oregon, Qs QUILL we stand and View with awe the mysteries of that vast state. Then, to see motion pictures in the mak- ing we gaily stop in Los Angeles and watch the stars of Screenland's fame. The brightest day we'd ever seen began at San Francisco's Golden Gate. The West we surely hate to leave, but other scenes ahead of us beckon and we speed along our way. Soon we are in the Lone Star State, Texas is so vast and great! CYou know the battle of the Alamo was fought here years ago.j Ere we realize it we are in the land the French and Spanish first did see-New Orleans - and just in time for the famous Mardi Gras. The beauty and gayety of this we'll never forget. Georgia peaches and cotton fields so white loom up in front of us, and yes, long our Gardiner boys do linger, gazing at the pretty belles of Tennessee. But time is switfly passing. Through to Florida vacation land we'd like to drift, still home is calling strong. In deep respect we pause to view our Capitol. Thankful are we in heart that Old Glory waves so proudly over this, our Land of Liberty. A quick stop in Philadelphia gives us sight of where the Declaration of Indepen- dence was signed by those farsighted men of old. But, when all is said and done, home is always best, and here we are again back in the good old state of Maine. -jane Whittier, '52 MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY I was born on a winter day among much celebrating and rejoicing. The announce- ment of my birth was published throughout the world. Although my youth and strength have passed away, I wish to recall for you a few interesting facts and changes which have happened during my life. My birth was not a matter of front-page concern. During my infancy society news was contained on one page of the paper. THE QUILL 11 Comic strips and sports events rated only one brief paragraph. At my birth, Maine was a land of livery stables, hitching posts, and muddy roads. Motor vehicles have brought vast changes to our way of life. School days of my childhood were very different. Old school districts have been abolished. Education no longer sticks to the three R's, but extra-curricular subjects add to the efficiency and happiness of the pupils. Among my acquaintances are famous writers such as Edward Arlington Robinson and Edna St. Vincent Millay. Kenneth Roberts is probably the out-standing Maine author of fiction whom I knew. Maine poets and playwrights have been numerous, and Maine literature has become best selling material. I have observed that fire and flood, the worst in generations, visited Maine, but she has recovered and built anew. Many saw- mills on river-banks have disappeared, but the water is being used to generate electricity for even small communities and provide power for industrial plants. Gasoline has played a big part in revolutionizing industry, agriculture, and transportation. Marked changes have been made in the political set-up of Maine. Direct primary law came into being. Women voters now out-number men and occupy key positions. In my youth, the mother's place was in the home. The shipbuilding I knew as a youth reached a grand climax in World War II. Bath Iron Works and the South Portland yard turned out destroyers and merchant ships. As I look back, it is with pride I recall the events of my life. Who am I? Could you guess if I told you that the fifty years of my life are at an end? Yes, I am Father Time of the last half-century. I wish to bequeath all of my experience to my heir, 1950. May he have a prosperous and peaceful life! - Lois Lackey, '52 IT'S COKE TIME The bell rings. School is out and all the gang is headed toward the drugstore. The door opens, then bangs shut. This goes on almost continually until they all arrive. The six stools covered with red leather are taken. Boys and girls are waiting almost three deep for a seat in order to get their after-school lunch of cokes and crackers. Troubles are hashed over and some are getting help on the next day's lessons. Plans are being made between some for a movie. The boys have a date with the cue and eightball. The basketball team is praised and criticized. Bets of ice cream sodas are being placed on the Cony- Gardiner game, and so it goes. The clock has swung its arms around until it's four o'clock and time to be getting home. Good-byes are said and off they go by twos and threes. So ends another day at the Manson and Church Drugstore. - Patricia Roberts, '50 A MEMGRABLE GAME It was a day in early November, And the sky was dark as night, When our team would clash with Brunswick, And our boys with them should iight. We left Gardiner quite early And cheered most all the wayg Our very hearts were with our boys On that important day. The game began - with cheers and songs - Our men went out to play, And play they did throughout the game, A long and bitter fray. We lost - but everyone declared Our men were not to blame, And after all it's not who wins, But how we play the game. - Pamelia Dick, '52 ANIMAL FRIENDS Life at five in the morning would be ex- tremely dull for me if it were not for my animal friends along my paper route. No other friends would be able to show so much enthusiasm at the sight of me at any hour of the day. . Y 12 THE jorky, a shaggy overgrown German Shep- herd pup, rushes at me as soon as I come into sight. He never barks but tries to pounce out in such a way as to scare me. He wants me to stay to play for a while but doesn't know quite how to keep me. Patsy, a black fuzzy dog of no particular breed, does her best to frighten me with her loud bark and toothless nips. I know she doesn't hate me but only tries to make me think so. Rocky is one of my most loyal pals, since I seem to be the only one who likes him. All the neighbors hope to have him move away. When he is in the best of spirits, I can- count on his company for the rest of the routeg but only because he wants to chase his favorite cats and squirrels. At one house Grandpaw, a big fluffy grey and white cat, comes out to be put in my paper bag for a short ride. He loves to be petted. My squirrel friends are always ready for games of hide and seek. One in particular calls me names nearly every morning for disturbing her plans. Even Mr. Woodman's house has a friend for me. Chippie, the chipmunk, who lives under the porch has many squeaks and chatters for me if I sneak up on him. Last but not least is my own cat, which waits on the porch rail. He always has a loud "Meow" - as much as to say, "Isn,t it about time to let me in?', I have many other animal friends of different kinds and dispositions, but these are my favorites. Some fine morning I'm sure they'll all be glad to meet you if you care to come along with me. - M. Carlton Storms, '53 A DIME TELLS ITS STORY I am just a plain little old dime. I can't remember right where I came from, but here I am anyway -in an old lady's money box. I'm in here, tucked down with all the rest of her money. I don't have any fun any- more, just lying here day by day. I can remember how I used to enjoy life so much. QUILL There was the time that I fell out of jimmy's daddy's pocket and was given to jimmy for his piggy bank, then he sneaked me out and I went to the store to buy him an ice cream. Then once I was given to the Salvation Army where I helped buy some coal for a poor family down in the poor part of the town. I was very proud that time to think I could help out. I remember little Janie and Tommy Brown so well. They were the ones that took me to the fair that terribly hot day. Poor little Tommy couldn't ride on the merry-go-round because he lost me. I tried my best to cry out to him when he dropped me, but I couldn't make a sound so I just had to lie there in the dirt and dust and be walked on and kicked around. After the fair was over, two little boys found me and had a fist fight over who was going to keep me. It never occurred to them, I suppose, that they could share me. After a time a little old lady came along and ex- plained to the boys how they could share meg and taking me, she gave each of the boys a nickel. How happy they were! Well, I am still with that little old lady. I've been here for a long time now, but I hope that soon I shall be off to new adven- tures and that I shall be happy again. - Barbara Hamilton, '51 A POND MEMORY The moon was shining through the trees That brisk and silent night, And looking up and down the road Not a person was in sight. Suddenly a sound came to my ears, A sound of tinkling bells, And looking up the road I saw Two horses galloping pell-mell. Behind them was a sleigh Filled with many girls and boys Whose laughing, giggling, and talking Surely made a lot of noise. THE QUILL 13 The horses stopped And I climbed in Met by some cheery "Helloes" And many a friendly grin. The driver hallooed, The team started, And from that spot We soon departed. Over hill and over dale We covered the country ground, Over bridges and under the stars And everywhere - all around. As we grew tired of riding And our thoughts homeward turned, We thought of the "hotdogs" and marsh- mallows We'd roast over the fire that burned. When the sleigh had returned me to my home, I got out and called a cheery good-bye, And I knew the memory of that sleigh ride Would remain long after the sweet by and by. - Lois Danforth, '51 THE RICH MOUNTAIN The mountain loomed up in the horizon, barren and rugged, daring anyone to even try to conquer him. But there were always some who wanted to conquer him. Some were selfish and greedy for the fame and riches that they thought awaited them. They never made it. The mountain was unemotional to the shrieks and terror-filled voices of these people when they plunged to destruction. One day a stranger came and stood at the base of the mountain. He looked up, and as far as the eye could reach, saw a mass of rock, covered with living things, uncon- quered. The young man admired its beauty. Here animals and plants flourished, here loveliness was at its best. He wanted to climb that mountain - out of sheer joy! This was what the mountain couldn't seem to figure out. Whyjjustzfor the pleasure? Why? He had riches in his grounds, enough to make men die and fight for. So he watched this man and liked him, but he stubbornly clung to the promise he had made to himself. No one was to reach the top! The mountain played all kinds of tricks on the man. But he failed to stop this one. The mountain trembled in rage and sud' denly rocks came tumbling down upon the young man. Lying so still was the young man, the mountain thought he ought to feel triumph, but instead he felt sorry and ashamed. The man had done nothing! The wind became like the sound of whimpering. A light rain came down and then the sun came out, drying out nature's children, including the young man. He awoke soon, not feeling the worst of his fall, his head was not paining as much as before. He trudged on towards the top. This time the mountain was with him, watching him like a proud father. I The young man reached the top and looked down at the world bathed in all its splendor and bewitching beauty. He stood there and let the whistling winds cool him. As he stood there, he thought he heard a whisper, but no one was around! A slight trembling of ground -then a sign! He stood there amazed as he recalled the words he had seemed to hear. "You are my conqueror. Take good care of me and I will serve you well. The ways of the good will triumph." - Sally-Ann Forsythe, '52 IN MY DREAMS Where can I wander Free from care? Where can I hide From other's stares? IN MY DREAMS. Where can I wander By babbling brooks? Where can I hide I From books, books, books? IN MY DREAMS. - Patricia Buker, '50 14 T H E THE KID NEXT DOOR It's Saturday morning47 o'clock. I'm sound asleep with the covers over my head. Ring! I pull the covers closer R-r-r-ing! Might as well answer it! jumping up, I grab the phone and shout, "Hello!" "Frefud, c'n ya cum out?" That's HIM-the Kid next door! Four feet tall and almost as wide, he is, and six years old or thereabouts. His mother buys man's size pants and has to cut off the legs and put a gusset in the rear before they will fit him. This is his second year of school and he should be going all day now, but as his mother says, "They would have one session just when HE goes to school." His cat and dog probably feel the same way, because their lives are pretty complicated when the Kid is home. When I first knew him, he might have been a little smaller but not much, but any- way he was three years younger. That was about the time he started asking to borrow my football and bebe gun. I'd say, "No," and looking out the window, I'd see him hiking over the path toward his house with them. Qln 1959 his Pa hopes to see the Kid carry the ball for a winning touchdown for Gardiner High School.D He used the gun to ambush startled customers as they went to and from the neighborhood store. One school vacation he fell into the grease pit over at the filling station. After he'd been fished out, both the proprietor and his Ma wished school would start up again - quick! Last summer the Kid's Pa was painting inside the piazza. He had a big gallon can of red paint on a little stand. All was going well until the Kid wanted to help and reached for the brush. His foot kicked the leg of the stand, upsetting the red paint on the gray floor, which wasn't supposed to be painted at all. Also upset was the somewhat strained humor of Pa, who promptly gave his pride and joy something to remember a long time. Then there was the day he called on the phone and I asked, "Whatcha want?" and he said "Pre-ud, I got a surprise for ya," and I said, "Oh, all rightf, In a minute the door opened and in he QUILL came with an envelope. Inside were two pennies wrapped in tissue paper. "You keep 'em, Fre-ud," he told me. Now the Kid says he is going to take violin lessons. This reminds me of the time when, after sitting long and patiently while I practiced, he finally whispered in my ear, "I..et's sneak out." Maybe it'll be on the football field, or it could be at a school concert, but in about ten years from now you'll be seeing a lot of "The Kid Next Door" -and I'll be right there, clapping as hard as anybody. - Fred Anderson, '51 CRIME DOESN'T PAY The night was dark and dreary. Only nocturnal noises were audible to ears perked to canine alertness. The house was quiet as the family slept. But in the stillness of the night lurked two figures, each un- aware of the other. Suddenly furtive steps sounded as they made their way toward a corner of the dining-room, where a table stood veiled in the gloom of the semi-darkness. With an expression of shamelmore than, malice, the intruder reached for' a diminutive object with nervous fingers. Suddenly, he heard running footsteps descending the hall stairs. Forgetting his loot, he dashed away before he was dis- covered. No sooner had he disappeared when a small boy entered the room. Going directly to the table,Ahe took tenderly in his arms the object of the intruder's atten- tion. With it clutched in his chubby hands, he mounted the stairs. Then the house was quiet again as the two people recalled the episode of the night. The boy held his piggy-bank tight in his arms as he lay with exultant mind, thinking of how he had saved his precious "Porky" from the hands of a dangerous criminal. just a few doors down the hall, the "dan- gerous criminal" was crawling into bed, abashed and grinning sheepishly as he thought of his 'vain attempt to borrow some money from his son's piggy-bank. - Faye Hayden, '51 THE QUILL ' 15 WHA' HAPPEN? My father and I were coming back from Brunswick one afternoon when I got up my courage for the first time to ask him if I might drive the car. Much to my surprise he said, "Yes." First he had to tell me about the mech- anism of the car. "Oh, how interesting!" I thought. I had always wondered what made a car tick. After explaining the position of the different gears and the running of the .car in general, Dad asked if I understood what he had told me. "Yes," I said, although he could have been telling me how to make the Atom Bomb for all it meant to me. He told me how to start and stop. Gh, how easy it all sounded! But when I got behind the wheel and tried to do what Dad told me, it didn't seem so easy. After stalling it a time or two, I finally got going. "Gee! this is fun," I said. "Nothing to it." By this time we had reached Gardiner. CI really did make it.J ' I came to a sharp corner, Dad was trying to help me. "Wha' happen'Z" I didn't quite make it and we went into the ditch. Dad took over then. . What can you -expect? I am one of those "Women Drivers." , .

I've writ and writ but only proved to waste a lot of time. 'Course I could write 'bout the fall, or flowers in the spring, Gr somethin' 'bout the wintertime, or some such foolish thing. Or I could write 'bout the weather, or the brand new dress I bought, Gr 'bout my r'mantic love life -- now that's some food for thought!

The beauty of the earth shone in all of its delight, And the diamonds of dew sparkled on the grass so nigh. The silence soon was broken by daily ex- citement in the citiesg Women worked about their homes, hum- ming simple ditties. Men were rushing to their work to do their daily duties, Noticing the huge, vast earth in all its hue and beauties. But soon the silence did return as the evening drew near, And people rested in their homes with the ones that they held dear. The clouds were floating gayly past and the stars were twinkling bright, As the man in the moon winked his flirty eye and wished them all "Good-night." - Mabel Brewer, '50 ALMOST THERE Before my mother passed away she would often sit beside my bed at night and tell me short stories and incidents. Cut of all those stories there is one I hold closest in my heart. A little winding railroad out in a western county ran through a town called Tripland. The trains were small and dim in com- parison to the large New York cars. But to an old man who sat cramped in an uncom- fortable, untidy coach the defects were nothing. For many years the trains had passed the small farmhouse where he had lived with his wife, Thelma. How proud he had been of her when he had brought her to this home to live with his father! Here they lived for many years, going to town on Saturday and to church on Sunday. It seemed that it had happened just yes- terday. But his husky boy did not come to meet him today and his wife's rocking chair was still, with dust undisturbed. The old man choked a little at the thought and wiped his eyes with a grimy handkerchief. Somehow Tom had persuaded him to come to live with him, but it was all so strange in this new place, which was very unlike he had pictured it. He had said nothing, but one day his son saw his wistful and pathetic face and was disturbed. "What is the matter, dear Father? Tell me." "Well, it's this way, Son," he said. "I want to go back home. I've never been away before and - well, she's there, Tom." Today he was going back home-back to the place of running brooks and dripping waterfalls. He didn't have far to go and he was almost home. As the noise rang through- out the car, the old man slowly closed his eyes. Somehow he was coming home over the hill and down along the lane. As he drove home the cows, his son Tom came running to meet him. Red with berry stains and face dimpled with mischief, the boy approached. Somehow he could see his Thelma by the gate - the girl he had loved and would love forever. "Well, I'm late tonight, dear," he said, "and weary." "Come," she said, "you're home now. Come on up the steps and rest." With a long and happy sigh he climbed the steps and- "Oh, what a relief to be homelw The train slowly sped to the station with a loud rumble. When the conductor spoke to the old man - no answer. - George Bailey, '51 GOOD-BY GARDINER HIGH Our high school days are almost goneg They seemed to go so fastg But here we are all ready now To graduate at last.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is our most im- portant organization. The officers and rep- resentatives of the Council are elected by the students with the approval of the faculty. The members strive for the benefit of the students and the school. The aim of the Council is to protect the school and neighboring property, supervise student activities, and encourage high grade work. The officers this year are Franklin Looke, Presidentg Henry Atkins, Vice-Presidentg and Barbara jones, Secretary-Treasurer. One of the most important committees working under the Council is the Halls Committee. Mrs. Helen Harlow is Faculty Advisor and Harry Bolster, Chairman. The monitors meet the first Monday of every month. There are twenty-three regular monitors and fifteen substitutes. Because of the many activities during the day it takes many monitors from their postg therefore the sub- stitutes are just as active- and important as the regular monitors. lt is their duty to carry out the aims of the Student Council and enforce the rules of.the committee. The monitors are on duty at the beginning and end of each period during the'day. Another important committee is the Locker Room Committee. This committee is comprised of two departments, one con- sisting of girls and the other one boys. Priscilla Messenger is chairman of the Girls' Locker Room Committee, and Richard Shepherd is chairman of the Boys'. There are two girls and two boys on duty during all periods of the day and at noon- time. It is the monitor's duty to see that all the students obey the rules of the Locker Room Committee. 44 T H E ASSEMBLIES This year Gardiner High School has had a variety of assemblies, all of which have proved to be very interesting and enter- taining. The assembly is opened by Russell Christensen, Chairman of the Assembly Committee. At each assembly, Lois Dan- forth or Fay Hayden has read the scripture.

James Wright .lures Qyrcmca-.H HISTORY OF MUSIC Music, which is the universal language of the world, has played its part in the history of our school. The first event of any im- portance was the Mandolin Club which was formed in 1907 and gave its first public appearance at a concert in 1909 to raise money for new instruments. This continued until the early part of the twenties when Miss Eva Towne came to the school to be the first Supervisor of Music in Gardiner. The Mandolin Club was changed into the Orchestra, which remains a part of our music program today. ln 1936 a Band was formed under the direction of Miss Towne. It consisted of thirty-five members and gave its first public performance at a football game, which- by the way-Gardiner won. The second year the Band raised money to purchase capes. In 1940 new hats and trousers were bought. In the last of the thirties Fred Kelly, a faculty member, took over the Band, which was proving its worth to the school at games and school functions. In the spring the Girls' Glee Club, which is now the largest music group in the school, was organized under Miss Towne's super- vision. In 1940 Miss Ethel Brown became Super- visor of Music in the schools. Under her direction the Orchestra and Girls' Glee Club grew and advanced further in the field of music. Mr. james Bates, called "Uncle Jimmy" by his beloved pupils, conducted the Band from 1940 until he was forced to resign be- cause of illness in 1944. He gave his time without pay. It was with sorrow that the Band saw him leave. Miss Blodgett, our present Supervisor of Vocal Music, came to Gardiner in 1943. Under her able guidance the Mixed Glee Club and the Boys' Glee Club were started. Working with all of the musical groups in the school and putting in much of her own free time, she built them into fine organiza- tions of which we are proud. She took the vocal and instrumental groups to the State Festivals. To raise money to meet the ex- penses she gave concerts. She sent repre- sentatives for the first time to the all New England Orchestra, Band, and Chorus held in South Portland in 1948. She, by sheer diligence, helped the Band achieve a long- awaited prize - new uniforms, which were purchased in 1947. The Orchestra under her direction played for many important functions of our school life. Last fall Mr. Chester Hammond came from Presque Isle to take charge of the in- strumental groups, while Miss Blodgett re- mained in charge of the Glee Clubs exclus- ively. Mr. Hammond also gives instruction on instruments during school hours to students who are interested in learning to play. 56 THE QUILL Front row, left to right: Anne Peacock, Clifton White, Dorothy Betts, Roger Frey, Helen Blouin, Arthur Tracy, David Fields, Norman Marrow, Thomas Loughlin.

CZBan0l The Band is on its way to becoming one of the finest bands in the state under the direction of such a fine conductor as Mr. Hammond. The Band has grown from the original 16 members who were veterans of last year's band to a band of 35 pieces. Not only freshmen but other classmen have taken up the study of instruments until the Band now includes ten clarinets, two bari- tones, three trombones, five trumpets, two horns, two bases, three saxaphones, two flutes, and eight members in the tympany section. The Band not only has played for many of the asemblies this year but has given two concerts proving that it is rising to a strong and well-balanced band. It also played for the last few games of the football season. As the Band grew during the year new uniforms were needed. These were pur- chased with the help of the Music Sponsors Club. A new base and baritone have been bought forthe Band by the city. Much new music has been bought. Five of our members were sent to the Kennebec Valley Band. Ann Reed, Barbara Hamlin, Bertha Christensen, Roderick and Frederick Potter were the ones chosen. Bertha Christensen is representing the school in the Band section at the New England Festival, which is to be held at West Springfield, Massachusetts, in April. in TI-IE QUILL 57 Front row, left to right: Dorothy Hammond, Roger Frey, Arthur Tracy, Frederick Anderson, Patricia McLaughlin Evelyn Woods, Alma Moreshead, Priscilla Potter, Sylvia Slosberg.

Orchestra As we listen, while we are walking down the corridor after school, to the strain of some selection we wonder, "ls this our school orchestra?" It has certainly improved since it started in September. Supplemented by the addition of new players it has become a better balanced orchestra. It has played for assemblies, the Freshman Reception, and class plays. A concert this spring is now being planned in order to meet the expenses of the music festivals. New music folders have been purchased for the Orchestra as well as the Band. The Orchestra includes five violins, two cellos, one base viol, two flutes, one oboe, four clarinets, three trumpets, two trom- bones, two saxaphones, two horns, two taritones, three drums, and a piano. The Orchestra has had a very successful year under the careful guidance of Mr. Ham- mond. Fred Anderson, Priscilla Potter, Dorothy Hammond, Roderick and Frederick Potter are representing the Orchestra at the New England Festival this year. STRING QUARTET A String Quartet has been organized from members of the Orchestra. This group played at the Methodist Church Fair in December and is planning more perfor- mances for this spring.

The Girls' Glee Club has met on Monday and Thursday each week. Because of the size of the Glee Club it is divided into five divisions. Miss Blodgett has worked all year with the Club and we shall appreciate the results when we hear the concert in the spring. The Club also is working on music for the Festival to be held in Augusta this spring. The Boys' Glee Club has met on Thursday and Friday each week. This group is di- vided into three divisions. The boys are now practicing for the spring concert and the long-anticipated Music Festival. Clubs The Mixed Glee Club, a combination of the best of both the Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs, has met each Monday after school for rehearsals. A concert, which was en- joyed by all present, was given at the Meth- odist Church Fair in December. The Club is now working on music for the concert. and the festival which culminate the activities ofthe Glee Clubs in the spring. Those representing the Choral groups at the New England Festival are Erna Dela- ware, Phyllis Campbellton, Rose Watson, Gerald Moody, Ernest Hopkins, and Alton Morgan. iL'r+-ml Girls' wfltlmletics '-Q GIRLS' ATHLETIC COUNCIL Front row, left to right: jane Dineen, Priscilla Roberts, Pamelia Dick, Genevieve Brown, Faye Hayden. Second row: Shirley Rogers, Mrs. Gipson, Bertha Christensen, Evelyn Woods. Lo and behold! A new gym floor!! It's a beauty too! Although quite a time passed before it was ready for use, it was well worth the waiting. No more do we fall on broken boards or get wet and cold feet. We have a whole floor now, and we have been using it for a great many activities. To celebrate, the Girls' Athletic Association sponsored a Halloween Dance, which was a great suc- cess. The Girls' Athletic Association, known as the G.A.A., holds its meetings once a month in Mrs. Gipson's office. The girls on the Council are President, Bertha Chris- tensen, Vice-President, Evelyn Woods, Sec- retary, Priscilla Roberts, Treasurer, Bunny I-Iayden, Senior Class Representative, Gen- evieve Brown, junior Class Representative, Jane Dineen, Sophomore Class Representa- tive, Pam Dick, Freshman Class Representa- tive, Shirley Rogers. Again the G.A.A. is sponsoring the Cheerleaders, who have done a fine job in cheering. These girls attended all the foot- ball and most of the basketball games. This year each class held auditions for cheer- leaders. The following were chosen: Seniors -Barbara jones, Priscilla Messenger, Ev- elyn Woods, Juniors - Beverly Brown, Lois Danforth, jane Dineen, Sophomores - Barbara Dessler, Diane Robbins, Gerry Merrill, Freshmen -Diane Turner, Dorna Hall, Dorothy Barnard. The G.A.A. has been selling candy in the corridors at recess, and from this a good profit has been realized. From this money letters have been bought for the Cheer- leaders. Also numerals and letters have 60 THE QUILL been purchased for the girls who have par- ticipated in the various sports. Besides the various awards some equipment has been bought for the girls. Our point system requires activity in a number of games, each game granting some credit. Those receiving fifty points get letters. One hundred and fifty points means a seal, while two hundred entitles the girl to a state seal, the highest award given. This year's gym classes are quite different from those of last year. We have fifty-five minute periods now that we are on a rotat- ing schedule. This gives the girls longer and better gym classes. lt also gives every girl more of a chance to participate in the different sports. The classes are as a whole this year extra large, many having more than fifty students in them. Each class is divided into squads with a leader for each. The girls have blue suits while the leaders are dressed in white. There are twenty-four leaders. They are Lois Danforth, Betty McLaughlin, Joyce Ware, Pat Morven, jane Downton, Priscilla Mes- senger, Ruby Seigers, Fay Hayden, Evelyn Woods, Mary Morang, Bertha Christensen, Gee Gee Brown, Erna Delaware, Gerry Goggin, Barbie jones, Connie Lessard, jane Bull, Joyce Kendall, Nancy Brown, Doris Crockett, Diane Robbins, Evelyn Brooks, Darlene Huntington, and Helen Macomber.

FOOTBALL - On August 23 Coach John Hawes issttql the first call for football. Ninety-five con- tenders turned out. Among these were seven lettermen - Bud Weston, Gene Ni- chols, Bob Cressey, George Heselton, Mitt King, Jug Gingrow and johnny Christop- oulos. Bob Cressey and Mitt King were elected Co-Captains. Coach Hawes had just three weeks to weed out the large number of candidates and have an efhcient eleven on the field to meet Winslow. Winslow G. 26 - W. O After a scoreless first half, the Tigers caught on fire and blazed on to win by four touchdowns. The first tally came after a 40 yard drive on seven plays, Cressey romping the remaining 17 yards. The second touch- down came on a 36 yard march with Cressey lugging through tackle 20 yards to score. Sophomore George Heselton passed 'to Cressey for the third. Minutes later Center Bud Weston set up the fourth by intercept- ing a Winslow pass with Heselton carrying the load for the final score. -1 Skowhegan G. 12 - S. 6 Trailing at the half, the Tigers came back to score twice in the final twenty-four minutes. Heselton intercepted a pass, set- ting up the scoring drive. The Tiger quartet, behind a hard charging hard blocking line, marched 55 yards up field and converted end. Bob Nixon scored from the right half position. Heselton tossed to end Tom Seavey and Cressey took a lateral pass to the thirty. Heselton bucked to the nine where Nixon took over for the final score. 62 THE Morse G. 18 i M. 0 Capitalizing on the running and passing of Sophomore George Heselton, the Tigers racked up their second victory. The first score crossed the goal in the second period on a forty yard pass from Heselton to end Bob Nixon. After the kickoff and seven downs Heselton crossed the goal from the five. The final tally was scored by Co-Cap- tain Bob Cressey. Lawrence G. 15 - L. 6 The Tigers completely outplayed Law- rence, racking up 14 first downs. It was all Gardiner's game after Manzer Doody left the game with a severe head injury. With Cressey doing most of the carrying, the Tigers with precision play took the ball from their 18 to Lawrence's four from where Cressey scored the first 6 points and booted for the extra point. On the next drive Nixon and Heselton ripped and slashed to the Lawrence 37 and Cressey scored on end sweep. Weston added two more points when he nailed Nelson in the end zone for a safety. Over the whole game Lawrence was baffled by our defenses for their straight T. Lawrence lost a total of 75 yards by rushing and had a net gain of 18 yards for the after- noon, a tribute to Gardiner's smashing game. John Bapst G. 32 -J.B. 7 The Tigers played the first game in their history under lights and also their best game of the season at Bangor. Outstanding from start to finish was the thin orange forward wall, which turned in a hard charg- ing and tackling game. Heselton scored the first touchdown around right end from the four. Nixon lugged the second score around right end. After the Tigers had ground out a 50 yard scoring, Cressey converted. The third touchdown was set up by Left Guard, Spike Gilson, who ripped through the line, blocked and recovered a punt. Hinds passed to Cressey for the score. The next tally came when Seavey made a fingertip catch on the 50 and flipped a lateral to Cressey, who raced for a score. The final scoring QUILL drive got under way when Cressey inter- cepted a crusader's pass and ran to the 30. Hinds then flipped to End, Mitt King, in the end zone and the big Co-Captain made a sensational catch, surrounded by three Bapst players. Madison G. 13 - M. 6 After being held scoreless for three periods, Gardiner rebounded for two touch- downs in the fourth to break a Bulldog seventeen-game win streak. The opening of the fourth period saw Gardiner take posses- sion of the ball on the Bulldogs 30. Against stiff opposition the Tigers pulled a stunt play that left Madison standing flat-footed. Heselton passed to Seavey, who pivoted with a lateral to Cressey, who scored the first seven points..A minute later Gardiner recovered a fumble on the 17 and lanky Bob Nixon took over to score around left end. Brunswick G. 6 - B. 14 Brunswick set the Tigers back for the first time in six starts. Brunswick had an unimpressive record for the season but com- pletely outplayed the Tigers. The Brunswick line was beating the smaller Tiger line to the punch on every play. Although Bruns- wick won on points, the team took a severe physical beating. No less than seven men were laid on the Greensward during the game. The only Tiger score came in the third period on a 54 yard drive with Cressey scoring from the three on a pass chucked by George Heselton. Rockland G. 32 - R. 13 The Tigers netted 208 yards rushing, Nixon racing 90 of it for the first score. Stinging from their .defeat of the previous week, the Tigers ripped into Rockland to make up for their loss. On the first kickoff Bob Nixon, a track star, ran wide to score. Nixon intercepted a pass to set up the sec- ond. After a 62 yard drive Heselton passed to Seavey on the three yard line from where he scored easily. Cressey cracked the middle to score the third after the Tigers had recovered the ball on the 18. On the first THE QUILL 6 COURTESY OF MR. CLARENCE MC KAY. KENNEEEC JOURNAL l. Gardiner Madison. Z.

One minute later Hinds intercepted a pass on the 50. The Tigers then went to the four on Heselton's passing, and from there Cressey went over. Cony G. 0 K C. 13 Over four thousand fans saw Gardiner lose its second game of the season. The loss of Bob Nixon and jug Gingrow took the aggressive punch from the Tigers' backfield. Twice in the game the Tigers threatened, only to be bogged down. Cooper, a Ram standout, took the ball over from the 45 and Ed Pickett converted making it 740. Dunn recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for the final score. The game ended with the Tigers in possession on the Cony thirty-five.
