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.
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
Dramatics, public speaking, and debating
are other activities that are enjoyed and
shared by the students with the people of
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
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
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
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
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
Americans often ask themselves, "Who
is Uncle Sam?" Ask anyone that question
and what would you get for an answer?

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.

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
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
"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

"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

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

every Christmas card I write."

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
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
The shipbuilding I knew as a youth
reached a grand climax in World War II.

yard turned out destroyers and merchant
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
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.
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
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
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.

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.
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-
We'd roast over the fire that burned.
When the sleigh had returned me to my
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

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
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
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
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."

Where can I wander

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
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
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.

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.

THE QUILL ' 15
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.

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
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
"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.

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-
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

only freshmen but other classmen have

Band now includes ten clarinets, two bari-

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.

As we listen, while we are walking down
the corridor after school, to the strain of

since it started in September. Supplemented

a better balanced orchestra. It has played
for assemblies, the Freshman Reception,
and class plays. A concert this spring is now

of the music festivals. New music folders

well as the Band.

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-
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.
The Cony High School Girls' Athletic
Association sponsored a Play Day held in
the gym of their school. Various schools
were invited, one of which was Gardiner.
Three girls were sent from each class. They
were as follows: Seniors -Evelyn Woods,

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.
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

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
