In memory of Gardiner High School, which is now buried in the past of our
lives, we wish thus to express our feelings towards you:
You have given us a start on the road of life. YYe were not always eager and
anxious to do our part in gaining the necessary equipment for this startg but now
having lost the opportunity, we wish. just a little, that we had done more to help
ourselves and tried a little harder.
You have also given to us many good times and the chance to make many new
friendships. We remember the games. plays. dances, and club functions that we
have enjoyed because of you. With a little bit of sadness at the thought of them
behind us forever, but with the sense of gladness and thankfulness that we had
them to enjoy, we leave you.
Though you are now dead to our present lives, as we leave your doors and go
forth to open the new doors ol our lives, we will keep you alive forever in our hearts
as a living rrnr-mory.

6 THE QUILL
THE CHALLENGE OF TODAY
In each of the past twelve summers of
your life you have never had to wonder
what you would do the next year. You
always knew - go back to school. Now, you
are faced with the problem of deciding not
only what you are to do during the next
year, but what you are to do during the rest
of your life. It's your future and todayls de-
cision will mark the difference between suc-
cess or failure on the morrow.
The first question that arises is this: Are
you prepared to meet the challenge? You've
spent twelve years more or less going to
school five days a week, thirty-six weeks a
year, but have you gotten what you should
out of those years? I don't mean just
studies. Those are important, but so are oth-
er things. How about friends? Have you
tried to cultivate new friendships and to
learn something from them? Maybe you've
been content to go everywhere with the
same selected few, never going anywhere
unless those few are going. How about
habits? And manners? Have you tried to
dispose of the bad ones and to cultivate
better ones to take their places? Maybe
you've been one of those who have said,
Self the way I do things is good enough for
me, it's good enough for everyone else." If
you have, you had better make some
changes. And fast! Then comes the big
over-all question: What about personality?
Everyone has it, you know, even though
some have lots more than others. Thought-
fulness, kindness, courtesy, neatness, and
interest in others all come under this cat-
egory. So do many other things. If you have
an abundance of this combination of quali-
ties you have already started to pave your
Now that we have discussed your prep-
aration to meet your challenge, what about
your interests for the future? Hobbies, ac-
tive memberships in clubs and organizations,
and ability in special fields should help you
in your decision. No matter how much you
may think you would like some job or
field, a liking for the job will do you no
good if you have no ability in this line. If
you are well prepared, have ability in a
field with possibilities, and have courage
and perseverance you are ready to meet
the challenge of today.
-Anne Annas, ,52
YOUR COUNTRY AND MINE
This great land of ours is a symbol to
the world of the freedom we enjoy here.
To keep this freedom, we all have to work
for it. We can't sit back and let the other
person do it. Thousands of our sons, daugh-
ters, and loved ones are fighting and dying
in Korea for this freedom we take for
granted. We at home should do our part to
keep this country as free as it was when
the Pilgrims landed at Jamestown in 1607.
To keep it free, it takes work. It isn't just
going to the polls and voting every now
and then when we happen to feel like it,
but taking advantage of this great privilege
whenever it arises in our city, state, or
country and voting for the people we wish
to represent us. Taking part in community
affairs, knowing who our Representatives
are to the State Legislature and to Con-
gress, being familiar with the President's
Cabinet and what is being done, and voting
at every election are only a few things
we can do to keep our country free. There
are many more things just as important
as these that will keep this country the
greatest Democracy in the world.
-Mary Lasselle, '53
OUR CONFUSED WORLD
In this world of much confusion, we often
stop and wonder how it takes on the ap-
pearance of being such a wonderful place.
It almost seems that the inhabitants of
our earth have forgotten why they are
here. Some think only about themselves,
and all others have vanished from their
minds. Why do nations haggle and dis-
trust each other? Maybe it is because
so much destruction has befallen many of
them. The best remedy for this turmoil is
having faith in God and being willing to
This same world will soon be ours to
help govern. We should try to correct the
mistakes of the past and make a better place
in which to bring up our children. These
things can be done with a sincere effort
on the part of all.
-Cynthia Gove. '54
FREEDOM IS EVERYONE'S JOB
Freedom is everyone's job. S0 it was an-
nounced by a local radio station. Realizing
that I have not progressed very far in
formal education and admitting freely that
I am young, still it seems to me the phrase
has a very truthful ring to it.
I suppose freedom is a very difficult word
to define properly and have everyone agree.
The merchant in Gardiner, unable to park
in front of his shop because of parking
meters, compelled to take his car off the
street at night by city ordinance, burdened
by business and corporation taxes, forced to
post ceiling prices and to abide by credit
restrictions, may feel that he has little free-
The shoe factory employee, punching the
time clock each morning, forced to drive
to work at certain speeds, park in a certain
place and surrender part of his wage in tax
before he even receives it, may likewise feel
abused. And so even the lad a little older
than myself made to give up his home life
and join a branch of the service may have
lost sight of the true meaning of freedom.
Webster defines freedom in this manner,
"Quality or state of being freef' but there
is always a practical everyday meaning.
Upon careful consideration we are apt to
find that we are extremely lucky and very
The shoeworker is free to own a car he
drives at certain speeds because free men
protect other free men. He doesn't have to
be a shoeworker, he can work in a drug-
store, a service station, or a foundry if he
chooses. The merchant, after all, makes
some profit, he doesnit have to pay a c'mob"
for protection, he doesn't have to give "for
the good of the partyug his prices are limited
in order that other free men can buy on a
free market, and he can live, buy, sell, or
set up shop anywhere at all.
And the lad a little older than myself is,
in reality, certainly doing his part in actual
proof that freedom concerns everyone. These
lads are giving their time, courage, blood,
and in all too many cases life itself, that
they and we may remain free to be shoe-
workers, merchants, or students by our own
choice and not by decision of the state.
We should all praise Heaven that our
lives, our homes, and the air we breathe
are as free as they are and realize that this
government with all its faults is far better
than any other form known today.
Now these are the opinions of a student,
but I have tried to say that even students
should do all in their power by word, deed,
and action to preserve this word that many
older persons, all too often, kick around
but do nothing about. I honestly believe
that 'Treedom is everyone's job."
-Verdell Jones. '55
I am a drop of water, born out of the
sky, descending earthward with many other
little raindrops. Striking the earth I bounce,
land again, and run downhill with my com-
panions. There are so many of us that pres-
ently we make a brook, growing larger, as
we cavort and frolic over the moss-covered
stones. Often we slow almost to a stop in
the midst of a mighty forest. I remember
the times when everything is so peaceful-
squirrels at play on the mossy banks, deer
nibbling at twigs nearby, chirping birds
fluttering from tree to tree - all these
must be left behind as we go singing on to
Our number has grown so that we now
form a broad, deep river flowing through
the brightness and gaiety of the many cities
on our course. After a long time, we finally
reach the sea - there to remain and rest
until the mighty sun draws us upward to
start the journey anew.
Richard Harriman, ,52
VVITH WHAT WE HAVE
If I had wings and feet so free
As God has given bird and bee,
Ifd fly away to be alone W
To find a place all of my own.
I'd build a world up in the blue
With castles, houses, mansions, too,
For neighbors I would choose my own,
And only peace would make its home.
God gave no wings to you and I,
Only birds and bees can fly
So here on earth Weill have to stay
Until God calls us on Judgment Day.
And, since we have to live today
Upon this earth, in our own way,
Letfs do our best to maintain love
And hold our faith in Him above.
-Herman Seavey, ,54
IT'S UP TO YOU
A hot breeze whipped across the small
clearing, stirring up puffs of dust from the
ground. Dana scowled as he watched the
puffs slowly descend to their resting places,
from which they had been rudely lifted.
Dana had right to scowl, for this was the
dry month of August - which was an
invitation for the greedy fire? He looked
about him, at the tall stately pines, the
clear-cut mountains, the birds swooping and
gliding, and he smelled the tangy pine odor
and wild flowers. He tried to visualize what
this beautiful spot would look like if a fire
ever raged through it. No, it would be hard
once you get used to seeing tall, green pines,
instead of black poles of wood, stick up
right in the ground!
8 THE QUILL
Perspiration streamed from his face a.
the full force of the sun,s heat hit him
Dana brought out a handkerchief and
wiped away the perspiration, realizing he'd
better be moving on if he was to return
to his car by dusk. He shifted his fishing
pole to his other hand and with a medium
fast pace moved from the clearing into the
shady protection of the trees.
It was dusk when he returned to his
car, parked on the old dirt road. The night
brought small relief from the heat of the
day, for it had a dry warm breeze. Dana
finished lighting his cigarette, blew out
the flame of the match, snapped it in half
with his fingers and then ground it into
the dirt with his heel. He stood by the car
for a while watching the night cover the
forest. Far off he heard the screech of an
owl and another scream - the fate of a
rabbit - the balance scales of nature. The
stars were out in full array giving no hint
of a coming storm, a storm that would be
Dana, finishing his cigarette, which he
also ground into the dirt, slid into his car
and started on his way home with a satis-
fied feeling. He had good reason to feel
happy, for three large trout were resting
in his creel. He closed his eyes for an in-
stant and could almost taste the baked
trout. "Mom sure does a swell job on cook-
ing fish," he thought - with which he
quickly opened his eyes, realizing if he
didn,t stay on the job of driving, he would-
n,t be around to enjoy those fish.
Now it is the month of September and
Dana is returning to try his luck again in
the field of fishing. It is a typical Septem-
ber day, blue sky, a brisk breeze, and the
kaleidoscopic colors of the trees - when
suddenly the woodland silence is broken by
Dana's car bumping along the dirt road. He
had been delayed in making a return trip
to his fishing hole because of the start of
school. As Dana turned, or rather bounced
around a bend, he noticed a sudden change.
The shrubbery and pines were not as green
as they usually were. He slowed the car
and admired the autumn colors of the scat-
tered trees, wondering why the pines and
firs were so listless. An idea of what might
be wrong hit Dana like a shot, but then he
added that there was rain just last week!
However, as he turned around another bend
in the road, Dana saw that his uhunchf'
had been right.
Hundreds and hundreds of acres were
burned! Plant and animal life had perished.
Started by what? A match or cigarette
tossed by a careless fisherman, most likely!
Dana felt a sense of pride come over him.
He could feel secure that none of his cig-
arettes or matches had done this. He al-
ways made sure they couldn't.
Going on, Dana approached the spot -
here he had left his car. He could hardly
recognize it! Making his way carefully
among the cemetery of trees, for he realized
the danger of walking through a dead for-
est, Dana soon stood by the once cool
stream. All that was left was a stream bed,
the shriveled bodies of fish and a young
deer which had sought refuge from the
Dana stood there a while, hardly be-
lieving this was true. But it was! Who
could do a thing like this? He shook his
head slowly and just as slowly made his
way back to his car. As Dana started
towards his car, his eyes chanced upon
a badly burned piece of paper. He stooped
and picked it up. As the sun beat down
upon his head, Dana smiled wryly when he
realized what it had once said: 4'Break
matches," and '5Make sure cigarettes are

THE GOLDEN RULE
Norman Shields walked along in the
glare of the late afternoon sun. He walked
quickly and looked up at the tall buildings,
trying to forget how hungry he was.
Suddenly he slipped, and glancing down
to see what he had stepped on, saw a
small, blue purse. He picked it up and
looked at the identification.
Miss lVIary Anderson
46 Maple Street
He then took out the small roll of bills and
counted out twenty-eight dollars. For just a
moment he hesitated. Then he stepped de-
terminedly into a small restaurant and
ordered a full-course meal. When he had
finished eating, it was getting dark and
he had to walk four blocks to find a men's
clothing store that was still open.
l'Vith his purchases in his arms, he started
for the dingy, little room where he had
lived for the past three weeks. Tonight
he could face the landlady and would not
have to sneak up the stairs.
Norman Shields sat on his narrow bed
and looked at his packages. His stomach
was full, his landlady was paid, he had a
whole shirt, new shoes, and stockings with
THE QUILL 9
no holes in them, but something was wrong.
He got up, went out, and walked along,
not noticing where he was going. The
trucks. ears. and buses rattled along the
dark streets. One car went by, filled with
noisy. laughing, high-school boys and girls.
Those were the days! Then he had had
friends. fun, and faith. He was the star
football player. Probably everyone but him
had forgotten that day when they played
Cilecath High. The day he had run thirty
yards for the winning touchdown after play-
the last quarter with a broken wrist! But
what difference did that make now? He
had been a success then. In fact, he had
been a success until just a year ago. Since
then he had met defeat after defeat. He
had lost friend after friend by asking for
favors and for jobs.
Suppose IXIary Anderson' was like him.
Suppose she didn't have any friends or
any job. YVell, it was too late now. He had
spent the money. Wfhat about the social
security card and the picture of the little,
old man with the horn-rimmed glasses?
But no, if he took those back, she would
know that he had spent her money. She
might even call the police. Still .....
Norman Shields walked slowly, hesitating-
ly. Once he almost turned, as if to go back.
He kept on, however, and finally found
himself in front of a large, brown building,
which was obviously a rooming house - a
cheap one. He went up the walk and re-
luctantly rang the bell marked 'fAnderson.,,
He rang a second time, more firmly now.
Finally, on the third ring, the door opened
and an old woman peered out at him.
"Sorry, young man. You're about an hour
too late. Mary moved out bag and baggage
about ten o'clock. She got a telegram saying
her uncle died. Left her some money I
guess. IVhat you callin' on her so late for?
No, ainft got no forwardin, address. Did
ya. know ...... ?',
But the landlady was talking to thin air.
Norman Shields was already half way down
the walk. He quickened his steps toward
the little room that somehow didn't seem
as dreary as it had before. f'Do unto oth-
ers as you would have them do unto you."
Suddenly he smiled at an old man who was
passing by. Perhaps the smile had little
meaning to the man, but to Norman it
was the beginning of a new way of life.
Tomorrow he would get a job.
-Barbara Dessler. '52
All I can remember of the beginning is-
well, slowly rising from a dark mass that
covers me, rising into a strange warm light
that seems to be coming from a round gold
ball hung above nie. I feel as if I were just
A month, two months, I continue to
grow. Before me those of my kind grow
along with me, not moving, not speaking.
By Heaven! What is this? A monster -
a huge hideous monster 4 coming, coming
for us. Wfe stand silently, showing no sign of
fear, for we cannot. One by one we are
torn from our places. Almost a part of
us f- this refuge 4 the only place we've
known, but what cares this monster? Well,
today I was spared, a brother, a sister,
and many friends were taken by this friend.
Sparcd another day - another night!
Maybe tomorrow Ifll join the other un-
fortunates who have gone before me.
It is three or four days before the
uMonster" comes again. This time I feel
the pain of being ripped from my home,
thrown along with my kind into a round,
deep prison. After collecting all of us that
he wants, he carries us within his great
I remember being put, along with the
rest, into another dark place. Slowly I
notice that it is getting warmer, warmer,
my body is wet, the heat is becoming
unbearable. Then darkness, deep, sweltering
Then after an eternity I awake. I can
hardly see or think - my body is drenched.
Through the steam-filled prison I can see
that awful face. My companions, some of
whom seem to think no more in life, lie
amid the steam.
One by one our wasted bodies are taken
into the open air again, but not to free-
dom, for we are placed on a flat hard sur-
face before another great giant. He lifts
me up. I see the great powerful jaws widen
and then feel the excruciating pain of hav-
ing flesh ripped, literally ripped, from my
body. Again and again relentlessly the mon-
ster tears at my body.
I can not think very clearly. All I can
see asI lie mangled is the grinning, drool-
ing jaws of my assistant.
Again my mind stirs as I lie upon the
ground, dying, lost to the world.
And then in a flash, through half gather-
ed thoughts I see the world before me.
I'm well and fresh and yellow, but low, itls
true, this ordeal I must go through. It's a
shame that such should happen to a lowly
ear of corn.
-Erwin Houdlette, ,53
The sunshine poured through the win-
dow. A peaceful air prevailed and the
teacher's voice made a soft, drowsy back-
ground for it all. I saw a big bug rise,
shake itself, stretching one leg - then an-
other, till all sixty-odd were unkinked. It
crawled across my desk, but the little crea-
ture was unable to climb upon the paper I
spread before it. So it just sat and looked
comically surprised and with a deep sigh
it took up life's burden and moved on. I
was at this time very interested in what
it would do if I tickled its ribs. It just
looked at me, being used to such things
from its long experience as the mascot of
f'What was Caesarls next move, Dick?"
the teacher broke in.
c'He stretched his leg and winkedf, I
replied promptly, watching the little fel-
low. I didnlt think it was a bit nice for
the teacher to send me out of the room.
-Richard Groder, ,55
THE LIGHT BULB
The light bulb is a ball of glass
That hangs down from the ceiling.
It,s quite important in my life
Though it hasnlt any feeling.
When I come in real late at night
And the house is all so dismal,
I fumble round for this small ball,
Hoping that I won't trip and fall.
When at last I find the thing
And think I've been so quiet,
Out calls my mom with words that sting,
4'Can't you be more quiet?,,
I yank the string,
The light goes "Zing."
Oh, heck, I broke
The gosh darn thing!
-James Ronco, '53
I walked into my room
Without a worry or a eareg
I took my seat, put up my books
And-oh, I just sat there.
My teacher looked around our room,
Her eyes, they shone with glee
And then she came, right up the aisle
And-handed it to me.
'fFailure Notice" was what it said
Right at the very top-
I wished the floor would open up
So through it I could drop.
But what was this I saw! I
To me it looked so fine-
It didn't belong to me at all
But to the boy behind.
-Harvey Mason, '52
THIS IS BASKETBALL
I had been out of school for a week and
my gym class had started playing basket-
ball during the time of my absence. When
I returned I was pushed onto the floor
and informed that I was a forward. I
guess that I must have been more back-
ward than forward, but someone kindly
told me just to shoot the ball into the
basket. "Justl" the girl said. Whenever I
tried to do this little thing a guard would
jump in front of me and start imitating
During the first two weeks of playing this
game I never scored a basket. In despair,
the instructor finally made me a windmill
-er, a, I mean a guard. I was doing all
right until suddenly there was a mad scram-
ble and somehow I ended up holding the
ball. My old forward days came back to
me! I tossed the ball up, and it went through
the basket beautifully. The world fell on
me when someone told me that that was the
other team's side. Everyone started asking
me why I did it and what side I was on.
All I have to say is that it is only human
to make a mistake, and how can I help it
if I'm more human than most people?
Margaret Bull, '55
THE LONELY SUBSTITUTE
On a long cold bench-
As hard as can be-
That's where they'll always put
A little "guy" like me.
All alone-without a friend-
It's just a mystery
Why they never want to play
A little "guy" like me.
But I wonlt quit, no siree-
It's against my constitution,

THE QUILL 11
PICKING A FOOTBALL TEAM
FROIXI THE HEROES OF FICTION
To pick a football team from the heroes
of fiction was not a job for one man. To
do this job. a group of "experts" was
chosen. Everyone knows, of course, that
there is no one alive today who is as smart
as a football player thinks he is. To aid
these gentlemen in their task a secondary
group was selected to choose and submit
names of likely candidates to THE "ex-
perts". Careful consideration was given by
these professionals in the game of second
guessing to all candidates. For a player to
be selected to the team a three-fourths ma-
jority was needed.
Now that we know how the team was
chosen, let us look at some ofthe players'
names and the reasons of the "experts" for
selecting them. Letis look, first, at the
names of the backfield men, better known
in football circles as the uglory boysn. At
left-halfback is the fabulous Frank lVIerri-
well. No explanation is needed for this
man's presence on the team. At right-half-
back the hexpertsn, believing they would
need more speed in their backfield, selected
the Roman God Mercury. For a fullback,
after careful consideration and considerable
discussion, the Uexpertsf, picked Hercules.
The quarterback, and also captain, was a
unanimous choice. To the task of guiding
the backfield presented above was named
Captain Horatio Hornblower.
Now let,s take a quick look at the line.
The usuper brains" were able to agree on
only three candidates. Two of these are
tackles and the other is the center. First the
tackles: at left tackle another unanimous
choice is the great Paul Bunyan, the giant
of the North Woods. After receiving the
announcement of his being chosen to the
team, Paul said he was very flattered but
that he would not leave home to play ball
without his Blue OX. Discussion among the
Hexpertsi' was heated, but they finally
agreed that Paul was too valuable a man to
lose, therefore Paulis ox was given the po-
sition of right tackle. After the selection
of the tackles was completed, the search
for a center ended almost as soon as it
started with the choice of Pecos Bill. The
Hexpertsi' believed, and most people will
agree, that with three such players in the
line there wouldnit be need or room for any
With the completion of the team, the
"brains" began screening the names of like-
ly candidates for the position of coach.
These men worked night and day for weeks
without leaving the conference room but
could never agree on a candidate wort-hy of
the job. At length, the list oi nominations
from the second group produced no one and
the "experts" could think of no one. The
only alternative was to turn to the common
people to help. The call is still out, so if
you have any ideas for a worthy man,
please get in touch with the "experts" im-

tWith Apologies to Kiplingl
If you can keep your thoughts when all
Are whispering, fooling, and distracting
If you can trust yourself when teachers
But make allowance for their doubting
If you can speak, but not with fear and
Or being laughed at, check the urge for
Or being witty, donft give way to bragging,
And yet go on, work hard till all's well
If you can the names and dates of battles
And in memory the Constitution retain,
If you can meet examination and disaster
And feel about these two things just the
If you can in chemistry worry each day
And not nblow-up" in that heated atmos-
Or you can 'iparlez-vousn and Hcomprenezu
Without insisting your classmates must
If you can force yourself to sing do-re-mi,
For it will be sung long after you are
And hold on to your temper when you get
Saying to yourself-HI Will Stay Oni",
If you can overcome a common temptation,
Especially with a diamond in view,
To put an end to all this meditation
And say, "Adieu," and again, HI do",
If you can read of the great literary men,
Historical biographies and such,
And dream of ancient kings and queens,
knights, brave men,
Nobility-nor lose the common touch,
If HVeni, Vidi, Vicin you can say and also
As Ceasar did of old and without fear,
Yours is G. H. S. and everything that's in it,
And-what is more-you'll graduate, my

Girls' Athletics, under the direction of Mrs.
Anne Gipson, girls' physical education teach-
er, has had a busy and pleasant year with
many and varied activities.
Physical examinations were given the first
week by the school nurse, Mrs. Ladner, and
Doctors Ivan McLaughlin and Hugh Mat-
thews. 294 girls were examined and out of
this number only 27 were physically unable
to take gym.
After a period of conditioning exercises to
enable us girls to get over our summer va-
cation, we started the volleyball tournament.
Inter-class games were played during gym
classes. After school three classes-Sophd
mores, Juniors, and Seniors-were divided
into teams to play for the class champion-
ship. There were three teams for each class
with approximately ten girls on each team.
First of all the three teams of each class
played to determine a class winner after
which the winners played for the champion-
ship. The winners of the Senior class were
the final champs. With Nancy Loughlin's
height, Evelyn Brooks' swiftness, Connie
Howard's jumping, and 'cBucky" Downton's
"noise", there really was quite a bit of ex-
citement during volleyball.
Next came basketball, the sport to which
almost everyone looks forward. This was set
up the same way as volleyball. Again the
Seniors won the championship of the classes,
although the Juniors gave them a rough
time. Priscilla Sparrow's team was the win-
ning Senior team even though it took them
quite a while to get it. VVith Pat Rogers,

Winslow G. 13-W. 0.
George Heselton, in the fullback slot for
the first time, certainly made a good im-
pression for the first game of the season by
slanting off the ends for both Gardiner
touchdowns. The line play was strong and
evenly matched on both teams. Senior Al
Seymour, better known in baseball for his
pitching ability, and playing football for the
first time, started a Gardiner drive by cutting
off right guard for 18 yards.
A 63-yard Winslow thrust was halted
abruptly as Dave Trask intercepted a Wins-
low aerial on his own 20 yard stripe.

Heselton, Tibbetts and Seymour, Morse was

Both teams played hard clean ball.
Skowhegan G. 7fS. 12
Gardinerls Quimby Field was the scene of
the typical hard fought battle with bruising,
blocking, and tackling as the Indians and
the Tigers clashed. The game was high-
lighted by Heselton's interception of a pass
on his own 4 yard line and his sprint to the
Skowhegan 20. However, Gardiner was un-
able to score from there.
The long Gardiner tally came in the third
period when the Tigers seemed to catch fire.

curate passing kept Gardiner in the game as
he hit Tom Seavey with a short aerial, and
Seavey promptly stepped off 60 yards for
the first Gardiner score.
Another Heselton-Seavey pass put the

in their hard tackling and blocking.

Tibbetts ended a Gardiner drive by smash-

running hard all game, scored early in the
second stanza following a blocked punt. Tib-

a 61 yard march to the 5 where Seymour
took over to score the third Gardiner marker.
The Tigers last score came when Walt
Nixon, Gardiner smooth ball-handling quar-
terback, unleashed a 16 yarder to Tom Sea-
vey in the end zone.
Brunswick G. 20-B. 14
A much surprised Gardiner team went off
the field at the half of the Gardiner-Bruns-
wick game. The Tigers, strong in their last
few games, expected a breather but found
the Dragons breathing down their necks. It
was Dave Trask, always a stand-out on both
offense and defense, who intercepted a Mun-

Gardiner took over on a Madison fumble
in mid-field and marched to the 4. Heselton
crashed over, on the fourth Tiger attempt,
for the first score of the game. Quick-step-
ping Lonnie Tibbetts climaxed for Gardiner
as he drove over from the 6 yard line. In
the last period Madison rallied her forces
for a 75 yard march.
Steady Ed Hanley stood out on both
offense and defense with his hard blocking
and tackling. Dave Rogers, the Tigers' ran-
gy guard, was smashing down Bulldog back
throughout the afternoon and was big cog
in the Gardiner defense.
The Gardiner-Waterville game was can-
celled on account of the heavy weekend rain.
Rockland G. 34-R. 6
George Heselton's passing sparked the Ti-
gers to a 34-6 victory over Rockland. The
first Gardiner score came when Heselton hit
fast Tom Seavey on the 40 with a third
Sic Seymour skirted the end for 45 yards
after a Rockland punt. Tibbetts bucked

The next Gardiner marker came after a
Rockland punt was downed on their own

jaunt off the end. Walt Nixon went straight
up the middle for 17 to the 11 and a first
down. Gardiner moved to the one where
quarterback Walt Nixon bucked over. It
was Heselton-Seavey again in a 30 yard pass
with a sensational catch by Seavey.
Gardiner got a safety as alert Gump An-
drews covered a blocked punt in the end
zone. Gardiner scored its last touchdown
when Pete Hinds hit Rankin with a 20 yard
bullet on the five.

Gardiner scored first in their traditional
hard-fought game with Gony. Taking the
ball on his own 39, Sic Seymour drove off-
tackle for 16 yards and a first down. It was

in the first game of the season. The Tigers
grabbed an early 23-10 lead and the fighting
Lawrence team was unable to catch up.
Tom Seavey fired this early lead by pushing
in 16 points in the first period. Hinds and
Griffin both came through with 10 points
Cony G. 46-C. 43
The Gardiner Tigers distributed the
points well in winning over the Cony Rams
at the Gardiner Armory. Seavey and Grifhn
were high for the Tigers with 15 and 11
respectively while Hinds and Heselton gar-
nered 9 and 8. Paul Trask, Gardiner re-
bounding ace, was sorely missed when he
went out on fouls.
Gardiner took a 20-8 lead in the first
stanza. The second period was quite the
opposite when Cony could not miss and
Gardiner could not hit. The period ended
with the Tigers 23 and Gony 20. A similar

boards helped the Tigers to an 11 point lead.
A fourth period splurge saw Hinds' dead
eye shooting and GriHin's driving layups pull
the Gardiner team way ahead. Other scorers
besides Heselton and Trask were Nixon,
Seymour and Jones.
Hallowell G. 60-H. 30
Gardiner played a tight man-to-man to
down Hallowell 60-30 in a ragged game at
the Armory. The Tigers led Hallowell 41-13
at the half and the game developed into a
routine. It was the smooth fast passing and
sharp shooting that made the difference. Sea-
vey was high with 23 points to make his
four game average over 21 per game. Grifhn
scored 14 with Heselton, Hinds, and Paul
Trask 7, 6, and 4 points respectively. Other
scorers were Nixon 4, and Seymour 2.
This win marked Gardiner's fourth in a

Gardiner lost its Hrst game of the season
to a hustling Winslow club at a packed
Winslow High Gym. The Black Raiders
drove a 17-9 lead in the first quarter. Gar-
diner was having hard luck as the ball, many
times, rolled around the rim and out. 1Vins-
low held a 10 point lead at the half C31-211
and went on to win the game 57-48.
Seavey was high man for Gardiner with
21 points while Griffin followed with 11.
This win left Winslow the only major Gen-
tral Maine club to be undefeated.
Madison G. 58-M. 48
The Tigers whipped the Madison Bulldogs
58-48 in a game where all the Gardiner play-
ers rolled up admirable individual scores.
Seavey was top man, however, with 20
points, followed by Paul Trask and Al Grif-
Hn with 12 points each. Hinds and Hesel-
ton came up with 10 and 4 points respec-
Gardiner took an early 21-17 first period
lead and never was in danger from then on.
Brunswick G. 65-B. 58
Tom Seavey netted 32 points for the Ti-
ger cause as Gardiner downed Brunswick
65-58 in a hard-fought tilt at the Armory.
Gardiner was leading 14-10 at the end of the
first quarter, assisted greatly by Al Griffinls
driving one-hand shots. Griflin tallied 12
points throughout the tilt.
It was Seavey assisted by Trask and Hinds
who pulled the Tigers way out of danger in
the second period. Seavey scored 14 points
while Hinds and Trask notched 10 each.
George Heselton, though not high in the
scoring column, was a bulldog on defense
and set up numerous plays.
Rockland G. 58-R.34
The Gardiner High Tigers spanked Rock-
land 58-34 at Rockland. Tom Seavey paced
the Tigers by netting a neat 32 points. Hinds
and Heselton were next in line with 15 and
9 points respectively. Al Griflin and Paul
Trask, although not scoring highly, played
key parts in the man-to-man defense. Speedy
Sic Seymour hit for 3 points.
Lawrence G. 61-L. 41
Gardiner was able to whip Lawrence 61-
41 after a doubtful Hrst half. The Tigers
were able to grab a 12-6 edge in the Hrst
period, but poor team play and being off
in their shooting allowed Lawrence to cut
down their lead to 2 points at the half.
Lawrence suffered when two of their start-
ers were injured. Norm Gould went out
with a wrenched ankle and Ray Evers bang-
ed his head in a struggle for the ball.
Tom Seavey, who kept the Tigers in the
ball game, when the going got rough, scored
19 points followed by Griffin 1171 and Hines
1131, who sharpened their scoring eyes.

third period saw the lead shift time and
again. The Tigers were down 1 point with
two minutes to play. Heselton tied it up with
a good foul shot and Hinds tossed in the win-
com- G. 46-C. 40
Gardiner's Tom Seavey set the pace as the
Tigers beat the Rams for the second time
this season. Seavey came through with 21
points followed by Trask, who played a terri-
fic defensive game plus notching 10 markers.
The closely-called game saw three Cony
players and one Gardiner starter removed
from the game on fouls. Gony led the scor-
ing at the half and at the beginning of the
third period. Paul Trask swished the win-
ning basket from the corner to give the
Tigers a 41-40 lead. Gardiner then froze the
ball, until, with about a minute to go, Seavey
hit with two quick ones.
The smooth ball handling of George Hes-
elton and scrappiness of Al Grifiin. along
with the playmaking of Pete Hinds, all com-
bined to give Gardiner its twelfth win.
Hallowell G. 61-H. 38
Pete Hinds scored four quick baskets to
start the Tigers oFf right as they downed
Hallowell 61-38 to make it thirteen wins in
fourteen starts. Seavey notched 14 points
and Heselton netted 10. Gardiner controlled
both backboards, and had too much height
and speed for the Hallowell team.
Madison G. 74-M. 51
Gardiners players won their fifteenth game
in sixteen starts as they downed Madison 74-
51 at the Armory. The Tigers had difficulty
hitting in the first period but were able to
hold an 18-12 margin at the buzzer, It was
Gardiner's second quarter that put Madison
out of the ball game. Heselton started it off
with a corner shot and at the half the Tigers
held a comfortable 41-26 lead.
Tom Seavey hit 31 points for the Tiger
team and Hinds followed with 14. Paul
Trask and Al Griffin accounted for 10 apiece
and playmaker George Heselton came
through with 6 points.
The third period saw Ed Hanley, Dave
Trask, and Ranny Lewis shine for the Gard-
Rockland G. 48-R. 44
A hard-Hghting Rockland team, looking
for a tourney bid, lost to a cool Gardiner
five 48-44 in the Gardiner Armory.
Rockland led all the way until the Tigers
surged ahead in the fourth period and put on
a freeze. Tom Seavey, who always comes
through when the going is tough, scored two
quick baskets and a foul shot to pull Gardin-
er out in the fourth stanza. Fighting Al Grif-
fin and steady George Heselton hit 13 and 7
points while Hinds and Trask netted 6 and 4
St. Dominicfs G. 65-S. D. 47
Gardiner won its second game in two
nights by trouncing Dom's 65-47 in the Lew-
iston Armory. The Tigers were even with
Dom's at the end of the first quarter and one
point behind f30-291 at the half.
The Tigers went on a third period spree,
scoring 19 points and allowing the Saints
only 3 points. Tom Seavey paced Gardiner
with 30 points in the Dom's game and just
the night before 18 points in the Rockland
tilt. Pete Hinds accounted for 13 of the
Gardiner points, while Griffin and Trask
contributed 10 each and Heselton 2.
Fort Fairfield G. 38-F. F. 41
The Gardiner Tigers, winners of 17 out of
18 games, were picked to play Fort Fairfield

The Gardiner team set many records in the
The Tigers had the best won-lost record in
Central Maine, the longest win streak with
fourteen games, and Tom Seavey was the
schools' highest individual scorer with 423
The Tigers and the Fort Fairfield five were
tied up 9-9 at the end of the first quarter.
Fort Fairfield led at the half 24-20. It looked
as if Gardiner was on the way to a comeback
as the third period score ended 31-30. It was
point for point most of the fourth period,
C4 T H E
but the Fort pulled to a three-point lead and
froze the ball for the remaining time.
Fort Fairfield definitely was having a good
day, hitting from all over the court.
Pete Hinds was the sparkplug of the Gard-
iner team, scoring time and again on driving
jump shots and long sets. Hinds was hot
from anywhere on the court and could not
seem to miss as he notched 22 points for the
Gardiner cause. Tom Seavey, although not
scoring heavily, turned in an outstanding
floor game. Trask and Grifhn played a Hne
game, but the Tigers just were not destined
to win. George Heselton was strong on de-
fense and fought hard all the way.
Fifteen cross eountry men responded to the
call of Coach Gordon Hutchins in the fall.
Long striding Harvey Mason made a name
for himself when he defeated the Rockland
star. October 30, the Gardiner team won a
27-28 cross country meet over Lincoln Acad-
emy at Gardiner. Harvey Mason was the
Hrst under the wire. His time for the 2.7
mile course was 14 minutes and 34 seconds.
Others from Gardiner High taking part in
this meet were Alphie Watson, Frank Camp-
bellton, VVilfred Bolduc, Paul Hunt, James
Burns, Malcolm Watson, and James Christ-
This year when Coach Gordon Hutchins
called his track men together he had six
Seniors, eleven juniors, twenty Sophomores,
and twelve Freshmen. Each class will have

Indoor Relay Meet. Practice is being held
each night after school.
