Student Government The Student Government Association was organized five years ago. The activities of the school are governed primar- ily by thc Association. , The Student Government has sponsored activities similar to those of the past: it has accepted the constitution of the Nature Club, it has again sponsored the Saturday night movies, which have not been as profitable as last yearg it sponsored the Snow Carnival, which was a success, and the Jubilee. v Our Student Council went to Augusta on Friday, preced- ing the conference, on November 29, and stayed over night. Paul Sylvester who was the state president, had to contact the other officers and get the program in order. The conference was a great success with a record attendance from all parts of the state. In the afternoon session, Janice M. Gillis led a discussion group. It was very ably conducted. We hope that the council may go again next year, and bring back as much information as it did this year.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The National Honor Society, as the name implies, is a National organization, existing in the high schools through- out the United States. It corresponds to the Phi Beta Kappa Society of colleges and universities. The aim of the society is to encourage students to ex- cell in scholarship, leadership, character and service. The meanings of these words in regard to the National Honor So- ciety are clear with the exception of leadership, Leader- ship in this case does not necessarily mean a commanding personality, with the ability to inspire other people to greater effort, but rather the leadership of one's own mind and the courage of his convictions. Juniors and Seniors with a scholastic average of eighty- five or more, are eligible, They must be approved by the faculty and the members of the society before they can be initiated. These approvals must be unanimous. This year nine students were initiated, This is the lar- gest group that has entered the society at one time since its inauguration in this school four years ago. The new mem- bers are: Hattie Hevells, Lorraine Pettengill, Lawrence Small, Janice Gillis, Catherine Herrick, Lucy Herrick, Lois Cousins, Lillian Hinckley, and Florence Grindle, The large number of initiates might be taken as an indi cation that the Honor standing of the school has improved. H, William Emerson, Jr., Pres, BAND This is the third year of the band at B.G.S.A. With an increase in membership, the band now has thirty-five players, including six from the Consolidated School. One of the most enjoyable of our activities was the playing at Augusta in the Eastern Kaine Husic Festival, which took place on Hay 10, of last year, At this Festival the bend took both of the school busses, Besides marching in the parade the band received a good rating from the judges in their exhibition playing. The band continued to practice all summer and played at the Bluehill Fair. At Christmas time the band put on its annual Christmas concert. At the Jubilee held on May 7, the band took part in the Musicals that was put on in the evening, The band also took part in the Music Festival that was held this year at Bangor, Much praise for the showing of the band during the year goes to our band leader, Mr. Stanley Young, who has worked untiringly for the good of the band, ' Wilbur lntyre GLEE CLUB The Glee Club of approximately fifty members, has made several public appearances this year. The Junior and Senior girls and boys sang at the Fresh- man-Sophomore Speaking Contest, and members from all classes furnished the music for the Junior-Senior Speaking Contest. At the Assembly on Visiting Day, the Glee Club sang two numbers. During the Jubilee on May 7, the Glee Club gave an even- ing concert at the Town Hall. The rehearsals are conducted by Mrs. Jeanette Snowman, on Monday and Wednesday each week, and its members enjoy the opportunity for group singing. Lois Cousins NATURE CLUB Supper! Buy a ticket to the Nature Club supper. Wreaths! Christmas wreaths! Buy a wreath from the Nat- ure Club. Any old papers? Metal? Bottles? Clear out your attics and give the Nature Club your waste paper. A quilt? Yes, the Nature Club has made a quilt. It has a patriotic design. Why not try to get it? These were the calls of the Nature Glubbers all the year. The Club presented the boys' basketball team with a new medicine kit. They earned several dollars with waste pa- per and metal. The Clubbers have all been busy and this win ter, under the supervision of Mrs. n.m. Philips, have had a busy profitable time. Lucy Merrick LIBRARY The library this year has been re-accessioned, and the books not previously catalogued have been catalogued. We have had many gifts from friends interested in our library. Our staff consisted cf: Chief Librarian, Lucy herrlckg Staff Janice Gillis, Catherine Herrick, Mary McGraw, Lois Cousins, and Fred Snow.

The members of the Dramatic Club wish to thank Mrs. Hinckley for the time and interest she has so 'unsparingly given us. Vilma Collins, '45 HOME NURSING Twelve girls formed a home nursing club this year, and under the expert supervision of the district nurse, Mrs. Cross, we gained the practical knowledge that a home attonw dant should have in order to take care of the sick, We have studied problems related te community environ- ment, home environment, communicable diseases, babies and their care, care of older children, convalescents, chronic patients, and aged people. We each had a chance to give the baby a bath, by prac- ticing on long-suffering dolls, and to make a bed with and without the patient, It has been a very pleasant year for us all and we wish to thank Hrs. Cross for her very helpful lessons and her patience in teaching us the fundamentals of home nursing, F. Grindle, '42 RIFLE CLUB This year, under the expert supervision of Victor Anderson and Bob Duffy, members of the town team, our marks- manship, though still far from expert, has greatly improved. We have shot only one match this year, with the Stearns Rifle Team of Millinoeket, whom we defeated, The members of the club are: President, Walter Bissetg Vice-President, Walter Butler, Secretary, Fernald Robertson, Treasurer, William Snow, Dana Conaryg Donald Bissetg and Godern Emerson, We receive not only good training in marksmanship, but training in the safe handling of firearms, W. Butler, N44 AHERICAN PATRIOT'S CLUB The Terpsichorean Club was organized again under the supervision of Miss Jean Hilliard. The officers were elect- ed as follows: President, Lorraine Pottengillg Vice-President Lillian Hinckley, Secretary-Treasurer, Margaret Grinnell. Under Kiss Hilliard's leadership we learned to do many beautiful folk dances, They proved to be both educational and recreational. The only public appearance which we made was at the Band Concert on December 19 in the gymnasium, At the end of the first term we were very unfortunate in losing Miss Hilliard. Consequently the club was discon- tinued, When school began again Miss Phyllis Chase took the Terpsichorean Club and reorganized it into an American Pa- triot's Club. Our club periods were spent in making N4 by 4'sN, surgical dressings, for the Red Cross. At the Jubilee, Hay 7, we ran a fortune tent, The girls proved to be very clever gypsies. D. Pierce, '44 DRILL TEAM This year a group of twelve girls organized a drill team with Lorraine Pettengill as head majorette. This number de- .ereased to ten girls within a month. The members now are: Grace Hinekleyf.dGerald1ne Candage, Margaret Grinnell, Hattie Nevells, Lillian Hinckley, MarytkGrsw Dora Veazie Mar Bladh and Dawn Pierce. 9 r l, yv Mr. Davies of Brewera Our We obtained instruction from first lessons were in twirling and later we learned to strut, Owing to the rainy day on May 7 we had to postpone our performance until May 15, When we did perform everything went off well. The band played on the town hall lawn and the drill team exhibited its twirling talent in the town square. Our uniforms are very Snappy! They are maroon end white with Philip Morris hats. Lorraine Pettengill is distinguished by her white uniform and high white het.

R. R, Robertson The Canoe Wreck Bill looked at the far off shore, then. atf. the 'gray clouds blowing across the sky. With renewed vigor he put all his strength to the paddle, sending his canoe swiftly toward the island. Although an expert canoeman,he knew it would be imposs- t was about to break. Al- nearly swamped the canoe wind lifted the water in clouds of driving spray: ible to stay afloat in the gale tha ready the wind came in gusts that with water. The storm broke, the short jets and sent it hurtling in With an angry gust it lifted the canoe high in the air and, dropping it suddenly, smashed it to bits. Bill felt himself slide down into the deep water. His lungs nearly bursting, he swam for the surface. It was almost impossible to breathe the air which was filled with spray. Keeping afloat was equally as hard. Luckily, Bill was nearly ashore when the storm broke. In a few minutes, althoumh it seemed like hours to him, his feet touched bottom and he crawled out on a larva sand beach and more dead than alive he lay on the warm sand and slept the sleep of the weary. When he awoke, the sun was shining brightly and the wind had stopped blowing. The water was nearly dead calm. Looking at the sun he judged it to be about two o'clock. The summer storm passed as quickly as it had come, and the sky was clear ence mere. ' Then horrible thoughts began to pass through BillB.head as he realized he was 'maroencd on a deserted island. He saw his bones streehed out on,the sand, to be found by some later visitor to the island, bleached and white. Uncon- sciously, he began to whistle.

This cheered him up and he took an inventory of his pockets, His matches were soaked with water, so they were no good, but in another pocket he found a compass with a magnifying glass,a twenty foot piece of twine and three big bass hooks. Taking his magnifying glass he set about to build a fire. In a few minutes he had a fire going. Tying one of his hooks to the piece of twine, and baiting it with a clam he found, he soon caught several sunfish. After cleaning the fish with his pocket cooked them over his fire. To Bill, hungry as these half burned sunfish tasted good. After gathered some wood and, putting several large fire, he covered himself with sand and was soon Bill was awakened next morning shoulders.

Beryl Leach '43 The Snow The snow silently, slowly, easily drifts Downward from gray clouds, Like miniature parachutists, invading the earth From some yet undiscovered universe. Slowly, quietly, but surely, it covers . everything, Carpeting the roads, trees, rooftops and fields With a blanket of unbroken whiteness, How different this from the blizzard, when the winds, driving the tiny flake Like miniature bullets into the faces Of those unlucky enough to be abroad, Shows us that even these Tiny, harmless-looking flakes Can be cruel and cold. S Barney Piper '44 A SEA YARN The fog rolled thick and heavy about the small steamer as she slowly made her way to the opposite bank of the Saint Lawrence River. The wind whistled and mourned and the whole atmosphere of the night seemed to effect tho captainYs mind as he stared through the small porthole and watched the roll- ing sea, listening with dread lest he should not hear the floating bell buoys ringing through the dense fog. I Although the cabin was warmly heated by a small stove, which stood in the corner, a shiver stole up and down the captainlg back. He jumped up, startled, as a knock sounded on the door. Frightened and nervous, he arose and opened it. In the doorway stood the mate, Thomas Weed, with the usual hearty grin on his face. HCome in, Tom ---- I think I could do with someone to talk to right now. Sitting here watching the wind blow the waves and fog about, has brought back memories---horrible memories! Yes, I can tell you a true story that will make your blood run coldi' Sit down. Here, have a smoke---the matches are on the shelf behind you. nYes, it was on just such a night as this, gloomy and weird. And in just about the same place, I should say, that we picked up a man who had apparently been shipwrecked. Well, he told us an unbelievable yarn. It was so impossible that we thought him to be insane. After resting a bit and having something to eat, he began a tale that ran something like this: - HI was a member of the crew aboard the HSea Sprayn, which is floating somewhere in these waters. About two weeks ago, one of our crew disappeared. We thought maybe he had fallen overboard in the heavy sea, but after that a man dis- appeared every day until I was the only one left. One day during this nightmare, a hysterical sailor tried to tell us the water had turned a bloody red, and when we looked we found it only too true. Well, I guess I was so scared I didnft know what I was doing--I just grabbed a life preserw ver and jumped. Thatfs all, but--but youYve got to get out of these fogs or that invisible thing will come aboard this ship and-- and--in Hwell, of course we didnft believe his story. We thought that being alone in the dense fog had made the.man crazy, but the next day our mate disappeared and was later found dead, leaning up against the rail, his face was a slimy green, indicating his watery death. HEven so, we did not yet believe in supernatural powers. By noon the next day we were to have been out of the fogs but we werenit. And late that afternoon a terrified sailor came to me and said that the surrounding water was a deep redg he also stated that we were in the same position as the day be- fore although we had been going under full sail all night and that day., HThe next day the crew abandoned the ship but I hoped to find a logical answer behind all this so I stayed, and was greatly relieved when a member of the crew volunteered to stay with me. We remained below deck most of the time so as to avoid if possible the strange death of the mate. eFi- nally, about noon, three days later, we drifted into a small harbor and were safe. nnowever, we never heard from the rest of the crew again and I never did find a logical answer to the situa- tion. I wonder whether it would have ended differently if we had abandoned the ship too.n The captain's voice trailed off into nothing and he rose and shook the ashes from his pipe. He glanced out the porthole, and as he did so, the fog silently parted and the moon flooded the misty sea with sudden radiance. The wind had shifted and the boat was now riding smoothly. And the stars, twinkling out, one by one, seemed to wink at the cap- tain, until finally he winked slowly back. - When he turned back to the mate, his face was relaxed, and he returned the mate's smile: Uwell, I guess we're going to have good weather tomorrow---wind seems to be dying down. Guess I'll turn in ---- Good night.H Sheila Babson, WU-L ,U .f Song ffx l r our of the night came the East Nina. whistling through the trees, .

He wouldn't have been taken for an 'honest man. An honest man has a clear eye. He didn't. Sweat gllstened like tiny beads on his forehead around the turndown brim of his hat. Plainly, he was very nervous. As the light changed to green, the coupe pulled away from the line of waiting cars as does a horse eager for the signal to start a race.

They lived around the edges of Noyes Fond and at the foot of Blue Hill Mountain. The largest of the little village of wigwams was that of the Chief Thundercloud. This was larger than the others. It was made of skins stretched over poles. It had a bear-skin hung over the doorway. Inside the floor was covered with skins, and the walls were covered with bright beads and fea- thers. A fire burned in the center of the large room. Here the chief was having a meeting with his warriors and medicine men. The chief was dressed in skins with beaded moccasins and a headress of numerous colors that trailed on the ground. Around him were fathered the medicine men and warriors, their faces hideous with blue and red paint, the tribal colors. This was the most important meeting of the year. Chief Thundercloud stated that the warriors must choose different tribal colors. The present colors were out of style and had been copied by the other tribes. He said that the colors must be changed to maroon and white. The warriors murmured among themselves. Maroon could be made easily: gust mix blue and red together and it would be- come maroon. ut where could they get the white? Chief Thundercloud said that whoever presented him with maroon and white warpaint before sunrise would become the husband of his glamorous daughter Crane. When the meeting was dismigsed the warriors scattered far and wide. Old men, young men and middle-afed men combed the nearby country. One lazy, but handsome, warrior refused to search. He stayed in town and went fishing in his canoe instead. While he was fishing, a turtle came up out of the water. His back was covered with white mud. Hoki, for that was the warrior's name, took a sharp stone and dug in the shallow water until he found a lot of white matter, He called it Hchalk.U He filled the canoe full of chalk and returned to the village. Ho bleached the chalk in the sun until it was pure white and then he mixed it with water. Then he went out and fathered blueberries and raspber- rics and squeezed out the juice and mixed the two colors. Just before sunrise he brought a bowl of white paint, and a bowl of maroon paint to Chief Thundcrcloud. The Chief was delighted and presented Hoki with his beautiful daughter Crane. The tribe held a large celebration and Hoki and Crane were married and lived happily ever after. Lillian Hinckley, '45 and Little John Robin hood one day, he confided with his men, and they decided 'X To hunt for a rich man and dashing ' To whom they could give a good thrashing. Bold Robin then set out For any sport that he could rout. A man soon he met half across a streamg Neither would give way for passing it would seem. Robin Hood Xgfijirx So Robin then said, Ulf you'll not give way, I'll show you some fancy cudgel play. . After the man hit Robin with what seemed like a beam, Bold Robin found himself sitting in the stream. He straightway got up and blew his horn, And his men did spring up like the thorn. They seized the fellow and started to duck him, But Robin said, NNo, he's as stout as a limb.n So into the forest they took John Little, They clothed him and fed him the choicest of vittle, He will ever be there, from night until morn, From that time on, they called him Little John. Dana Conary, 'M5 Values The room was still. To the young nurse sitting by the side of the bed, it had seemed an eternity since the still form of the little boy had uttered a sound. Where was his mother? Even if her boy had been sick for two months, didn't she realize that he had been growing weaker every day? Why, even the doctor had told her that the crisis would come this afternoon. now could she be so unfeeling? Her only son, four years old, looking like a beautiful wax doll, his curly yellow hair lying on the pil- low, contrasting strangely with the small white face on which the dark lashes lay so still. The nurse hastily blinked her eyes. Even in her pro- fession, where one had to be hard, she couldn't stop feel- ing. The child's lon: lashes fluttered. Hmother H he mur- . e , mured, his voice a mere thread. The nurse bent over him. uShe's coming, dear,U she said, and tried to smile brightly at him, but the child's eyes were puzzled and hurt. The door opened noislessly. Another nurse stole in. WWe've tried every rlece,U she whispered, NShe went to some luncheon or teaparty.N Suddenly down the corridor came the sound of heels clicking and a high, angry voice. I NI tell you this is outrageous. That child is not sick enough to drag me away from the teaparty. What do you think I hired a nurse for?H A nurse could be heard pleading with her to be Quiet. The child's eyes flew open and he murmured, Ukother, and sighed, a small weary sigh, and then was still. Anxiously the nurse bent over him. Then she straight- ened up as the door of the room opened and a tall, scornful- looking woman entered, leaving behind her a trail of expen- sive perfume. She addressed the nurse standing by the bod, holding a limp little hand. UW1ll you have the goodness to explain---W She stopped short, startled by thc expression on the nurse's face. UYour child is deed,U the nurse said coldly. They led the hysterical woman away, weeping tearfully and heaping threats upon the nurse, while the little boy lay quietly, a faint smile on his face.

A Gretefull Senior. Miss B Many years ago when I was in high -School, I wmrkdd nights sfter school and Saturdays for an old lady who lived on the outskirts of town. This old lady was of a very mys- terious character. It was rumor vt,. d among the youth of the village that sho practiced witchcraft. This rumor probably was caused by her appearance. She did look like a Witch. She had the nose of a hawk and her cold blue eyes seemed to freeze anything they gazed at. Although she was kind enough to me and paid me well I could not bring myself to meet that stare. I went in and out of the house freely while doing the chores and I noticed that there were many shelves of volumes of occultism but I never dared to look mt any of them. After grsdu ting from high school, I left home and went to the southern countries to work. After ten years had passed I managed to save a modest sum. For ten years I had not seen my parents, so I decided to make a trip to my home town. It was a bleak November afternoon when I stepped off the train at the nearest station to my home village which had no railroad. As it was only about three miles from the station to my home, I decided that I would have time to walk the distance before nightfall. It was still dim twilight as I approached the village. The lamps were being lit in the windows. A crack of light appeared in the dim outline of a house to my right. I remem- bered that it was the home of my old employer and I said to myself, UI guess I'll drop in and see her for a few moments just as an act of courtesy.n A strange feeling of fear came over me as I went up the pathway to the front door and I was angry with myself for it. I knocked at the door and opened it as I had been ac- customed to doing ten years before. As I stepped across the threshold, I heard a low far away voice say, HIs that you, William?U I looked up the long dim hallway and stood rooted to the spot. The vision of those horrible eyes staring at me will follow me to the grave. It seemed that her head was suspended there in mid-air, hor face ghastly pale, her thick white hair piled high on top of her head. I was paralyzed. Then her faraway voice said, HCome in, W1lliam,N and some of my courage returned. A I managed to go toward her up the hallway. As I came nearer, I perceived that she was dressed entirely in black, which accounted for her appearance wt a distance. She led me into the kitchen and got me some tea and cakes. She ate nothing herself. Soon we were discussing old times. I told her what I had been doing for the past ten years. She asked many questions and seemed to be inter- ested ln my position. All during our conversation, however, her voice seemed miles sw y, and I could not look into those eyes for more than a second at a time. Finally I got up and said, Uwell, I must be going now. You know, ten years is a long time to be away and I am an- xious to see my family.U She made a mild protest about my leaving so soon, but I insisted. She walked to the door with me. As we passed out of the lighted kitchen into the dim hallway, that strange feeling of fear again camo ovor me. nt the door we shook hands and she said, HI'm glad you cwlled, William. I know that you will be with 'me again, soon.n I happened to glance into the full length mirror in the hull standing beside us. My own reflection was dimly visible but there was absolutely no reflection of her in the glass. nIt's that confounded black dress,U I thought to myself us I closed the door. I went the remaining distance home in very short time. I burst into the room and the family was very glad, as nat- urally they would be, not having seen me for ten years. After the excitement of my arrival had died down somewhat, I remembered :HI stepped on the way up to see Miss B 5 she seems remarkably well preservtd.H The sudden silence of the whole family amazed and frightened me. After what seemed an eternity my mother said slowly, HSen, you must be ill, Miss B 's body has lain in the family vault of the tomb for nearly ten years. She died only a few months after you went away.H William Emerson, '42 N ' ' fu. y. fo me - 'L " ., Bullfrog saline K KR W' :lk ajsisgizi' " A big bullfrog, may his tribe increase, Awoke one morn from a sleep of ptace. Lord and master of all the bog He crawled out on his private log. He blinked his eyes with a grunt of wrath At what had disturbed his sunny bath, For there on the end of his private leg Squatted another big bullfrog. New Mae, as we will our hero call, Didn't take kindly to this at all, For he was king, this log his throne, And he meant to keep it all his own. New the stranger frog had his own ideas Of kings and rulers and lordly peers, And on this log he meant to stay And bathe himself in the sun's warm ray. By this time Mac was very sore. He uttered a wild, unfrogly roar. In fact he nearly threw a fit At the frog who on his log did sit. What happened next I won't relate, But the stranger frog received the gate. Poor Mac was little better off--- He was so lame he could not cough. Old Father Time all hurts doth heal, And soon poor Mac did better feel. And now securely on his log Sits Mac, our hero, Lord Bullfrog.
