In the next three or four years he will probably be preparing him- self' for his life work. Just what does he want for alife work? How will he prepare himself for it? I think the question "Just what does he want for a life work?" is the most difficult. I believe there are very few boys and girls just finishing high school who really know, without question, what they want from from life. I believe many boys and girls could get help and ad- vice on this question from a so- cial worker trained in vocational guidance. A boy has to keep in mind that what he chooses he will probably do for the rest of his life, and that he will have to draw enough money from his work to support himself and a family. The question 'How will he pre-- pare himself for the work he chooses?" is definitely one that he should have some help and ad- vice in answering. Perhaps he knows that the vocation he has chosen will require college train- ing. If he knows that much, he still has to choose the school from which he can get all of the education and experience that is necessary for the work he chooses. He also has to think about money. How much money will he have to go to school on, and how much can he work and still have time for study and recreation? Perhaps the student has chosen a vocation in which no education beyond high school is required. However, I feel that all students should go to school for at least a year or two after graduation from high school, if they are financially able. My reason for saying this is that that extra year or two of school will improve his personality and his ability to get along with people. It will give theundecided student another year in which to decide the im- portant questionof just what his vocation will be. MARY CUNNINGHAM 'Lia "The more aman knows the more he is worth,"-Robert of Gloucester THE REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL PRO: Will we have a regional high school? There has been and will be much discussion for and against the new regional school, and one of the most important factors of the discussion will be the expense of building it. Of course the costofthe building itself will beinproportion to the valuation of the property, regardless of where it is finally located, and is usually figured on the basis per pupil of capacity which is estimated at the cost of between one thousand and ten thousand dol- lars per pupil. Operating costs would be no more and possibly a little less than in the present small scale schools. Most ofthe Island towns are in great need of new and larger school buildings. For several years Northeast Harbor has been working on plans for a new high school. Southwest Harbor is in need of a new and larger elemen- tary school and the present high school building could very well serve for the elementary grades. Bar Harbor, likewise, would use its present high school building as an elementary school. Inalarge area school of this type we could divide into a jun- iorliigh school and a senior high school. H'l1'fC? we cotld have a large g'y'nna:1i'.1..:1, which could be divided intotwo sinallcr gymaasituns, one for the girls and ine for the boys. Also, there would be .fi large sci- ence laboratory, rooms for art and rusic, public speaking and dramatics, and a comprehensive course in industrial arts and other specialized subjects. 0 CON: In the last few months there has been considerable discus'- sion on the merits of a Mount Desert High School as compared to a Regional Island School. I should like to point out the objections which I think would be paramount against a proposed Regional school. If such a project should go through, what will become of the land which the town has pur- chased for fifteen or eighteen thousand dollars? What about the money which we have spent on plans, architect fees, and other acpenses? Why, after seven years ofplanning for a new Mount Desert High School, should some of the townspeople try, to stop it, now that we are all ready to build? Could it be that these are the same people who have tried to prolong this project, even as far back as when we were purchasing land for the School site? In line Mount Desert High School the people have the opportunity to raise or lower the budget to fit the conditions. This would notbesoin the regional school, as this :matter would be deter- min ed by the Trustees. If the Trustees were men who were con- cerned wi th the big taxpayers' pocketbook then the result would bevery:..1:atisfactory to a great many peopl e. The records of Gilman High School Alumni who have gone to institutions of high learning are sufficient proof that a small school can provide an adequate education. I think that this town needs a CContinuedl A wider athletic program could also be carried out, including perhaps football, track, and even swimming, none of which are now available for either the North- east Harbor or Southwest Harbor schools. In mybelief a regional school on this Island would promote much better sportsmanship among the students and adults of the dif- ferent towns, develop a more ardent school spirit, and an increased desire to learn and take part in all activities. Even if it were possible to bring the curriculum of the small school to the standard of the area school, the expense for the individual towns would be much greater, also competition and challenge among a larger group of students is always helpful. The matter of transportation for the pupils of such a school is another big problem, but can be solved, I'm sure. The buses could pick up the high school students mtheway to the central school and carry the grade school pupils on the return trips. This interest in area schools started less than ten years ago inthe State of Maine. One area school has been organized already and another is about to open. Six other locations are invest- igating the possibility of such schools. H Letfs have our regional high school the next on the list. ELEANOR MERCHANT 'LQ CContinuedJ building of this size for such things as dances, meetings, and other public functions, not only forhigh school students, butfor grade school students and the alumni as well. In such a build- ing you could have indoor sports such as tennis, badminton, and others. It would be extremely unfair to expect the parents who have children in the grade schools to wait for a regional school when they can have the benefits of a new school in a few years. I think the educators are unfair when theytry to convince us that wecan have a regional school in the very near future. Another reason for favoring the Mount Desert High School is that the students are more closely associated with their teachers and fellow students. I don't think you will find the different cliques that you would in a larger school. In the sports department of a larger school there could be of- fered a larger choice to pick from, but can each child be given as much individual attention as inasmaller school? I think you would be taking away a great deal of responsibility and leadership from the boys and girls by com- bining the three schools into one team or one group. Why haven't the other three towns made any concrete statements concerning the regional school. Is it that they aren't interested? Why doesn't the Regional High School Committee find out if the different towns are financially able to borrow a sum of money sufficient to build a building proposed by the state educators? CContinuedD To me it would be a mistake for the people of Mount Desert to delay in providing better school facilities for their boys and girls, especially after so much money,,time, and thought have already gone into the town project. Supporting the idea of the Regional School can mean nothing but delay and eventually failure, because there is not a sufficiently large number of people on the Island who think the plan a feasible one.

U A low hum hangs over the crowd seated inside, Seniors and un- derclassmen alike are moving about uneasily, waitingfru-the time to begin, v Then comes the words, MLine Up,n A line forms quickly with ev- eryone excited and a little nervous. suddenly a hush falls over the crowd and there is complete silence, Then softly, are E ard the first strains of the Graduation March. The batons start swisning up and downg the music swells loudly and we move forward. Slowly the long line moves Hxwmrd. We hear the ribbons slapping gently a ainst the staffs in perfect rhythm with the music. We see all around us friends and relatives, some with a slight trace of tears in their eyes. Next we mount the mmirs, march slowly on the stage and stand in our respective places, Then our Marshall signals us to turn and to be seated. The other classes have just marched in and a aseated, The music stops and the first speaker moves forward and starts to speak. We listen carefully to all the speakers, We listen intently to all the speakers, We receive our diplomas, after which we sing our class ode. Then Mrs, Herrick sits down at the piano and begins again the Graduation March. Our Marshall is ready and we begin to march. Once again we trace for the last time, that path vhere we have watched three other classes before us, Mr. Carter is once a- gain standing at the door saying, nDon't stop marching 'until you are out.H How welll miss that next yearl There have been many tears shed, but now it is over, and we, the class of 1949, are ready and willing to take our places in the worlds HARCLD COOVBS JR, 'QQ cLAss ygggg WTODAY DECIDES'TOMORROWu CLASS COLORS CLASS FLOWER Green and Silver Talisman Rose CLASS QQQ Melody: Sweet Dreams, Sw Farewell to you, Dear Gilman, wefre leaving, eetheart Farewell, dear school, to you.

We are proud to have Allan win the honorfor himself as well as for the school. He won, as a prize a trip to New York City where he wasenmr- tained for a week in a most entertaining fashion, Allan.has taken part in nearly all of the school functions during his four years here and he is graduating as valedictorian of his class. We wish to extend our most hearty congratu- lations to Allan on his many well-earned achiev- ements here at Gilman and to wish him much succ- ess for the future. Harold Coombs '49 ONE WORLD THROUGH WORLD GOVERNMENT Since the dawn of history man has continually clashedwiih man, tribe with tribe, and nation with nation. Indeed,it seems that war is inevitable, and is some- thing to be expected, like the sun's rising every morning. Oh yes, man has often signed treat- ies,disarmed, or displayed mili- tary might in an attempt to avert war, but the success, if any, of such amove has been short-lived. We are no nearer world peace today than we were when men beat each other with clubs and wor- shiped the moon. In all record- ed history we have advanced not on e iota toward world peace. No, that is not exactly right, because we should have learned what not to do to insure world peace. After a careful study of his- tory, we should conclude that every war has been brought about by similar circumstances and the n the so-called peace has follo wed a definite pattern, first between two individuals, and now between two camps com- prising the whole world. We should, therefore, say to our- selves, "If treaties, conces- sions and the like, made after a war, only lead to another and greater conflict, then have we any hope of a similar means of settling future wars?" You know as well as I that if treaties of all kinds a nd all sizes have failed, then the logical conclu- sion would be that ,treaties them- selves offer the wrong approach. This also applies to disarmament and rearmament policies, and all the other means the world's great- est statesmen have tried. To more fully understand why these conciliatory means always have and always will end in utter failure, perhaps we should dis- cuss the events leading up to war, and a possible solution to the problem. Whenever there is contact between two equal, or nearly equal sovereign nations, there is war. This is almost a fact of nature, an inherent trait. No amount of treaties can change this. Whenever any nation is sovereign,it will wage war with any other nation of nearly equal strength. Whether a nation be right or wrong makes little dif- ference. Its people will go all out for war spurred on by nation- al patriotism. This patriotism is a very important factor in human behavior. It brings every- one together in times of nation- al emergency and holds the state together. This same patriotism, once directed toward a unified world control, would serve as a powerful binding force. Thsresults of the war are also important. One nation will con- quer and after imposing drastic laws on the defeated nation, will thus grow in strength and impor- tance. All kinds of treaties may be signed, often in a sin- cere attempt to avert another war. But this nation, as long as it remains as such, will then fight with the next high social unit. This chain will continue until finally one nation will complete its .conquest and then reign supreme. This fact points to one definite conclusion, that the world is destined to see just one government. Our only choice is which way it will come about. Oneway, thru the process of elim- ination, now nearing its final stages, means only war until one nation survives, then probably a dictatorship. 'Ihe alternative is a peaceful transformation coming about by each nation' s willingly delegating certain powers to a strong central government. This nationalistic outlook fails in another sense too. It is that each nation through its economic setup visualizes itself as a static point, arounvi which all other nations and their problems revolves systematically. Each nations being sovereign creates for one nation an outlook that seems just, by considering only its relationship to the problem. But, assuming an entirely differ- ent hypothesis,every other nation gains a distorted view of the same situation, but gives a con- fused overall picture. This could be overcome, however, by each nation's pledging its allegiance to one central government, in which everyone has a voice. One of the main arguments raised against such agovernment is that it would not function at all, unless we developed a uni- versal language oracommon econ- omic system. This is a misin- terpreted fact, because such a change as this never has and never will come about, unless a world government is in operation to supervise it. A great many people believe that such a world would bedoomed because there would be no fear, no danger to bind it strongly together. Actually we have such a source of danger in atomic energy, he fears only what anation with imperialistic ideas might dowith such a weap- on. A strong unified control would insure to everyone the peaceful use of atomic energy, and its possible use as a .var measure would quell any thoughts or acts of rebellion. Therefore, atomic energy control should be vested in an international body. All the nations should dele- gate simultaneously certain pow-A ers to a world government, but this being extremely unlikely, the uniting of any two nations b y peaceful means would be a beginning, however humble. Once started, the task would grow immensly easier. In conclusion I would like to say this. The choice is not whether or not we shall have a world government, but how it shall come about. Shall we sit idly by and watch war eliminate all but one nation, which will then rule supreme, or shall we now, while there is still time, for- get our national pride and all pull together to create a world government that will work? It must be founded on law, for law alone can establish peace. Its framework must be strong and durable, yet flexible and able to be adjusted to changing sit- uations. Above all, it must be done now. Not to act now is to help establish a world govern- ment through conquest. It may be debated and amended after the machinery is in operation. It will be a tremendous undertak- ing. However, we can succeed, we will succeed, we have to suc- ceed.

JERRIE MERCHANT 'SO SECRET or CAVE Rock A Very few people d?this gen- eration know the legend af Gave Rock, but I'm sure your grand- parents must have heard of .it and its hidden drgerso It is hid that six boys were known to en- ter the cave and only one boy came out. That man was my grand- father. He, too, might have dis- appeared if a sprained ankle had not forced him tostay behind and wait for their return. As he sat there waiting for their rehnn.he heard and felt the vhole cavetran- ble and quake and then silence. His ccmrades never returned. ihese young boys were the caves first victims. Not even a cave-in or a disturbance of any kind wasev- er found. All that remained 'was a jack-knife with a broken dudes Then, four years later, the same disaster happened again. Three girl scouts disappeared in the same way. This time nothing was found totell what happened. Now, I had rediscovered the very cave andthen and there I vowed I would learn its secret. I would start tomorrow, alone! It was a beautiful morning on this morning of all mornings. This was going to be the big GHZ Today I am going to explore the cave, The legendary cave dfrock. No one could know, or possibly guess, the excitement and joy in my heart as I left the field to follow the trail higher andhigh- er into the very heart of the mountain. The ever forbodhgxmmn- tain which held its secret so vell from all the outside world.Ckm1d I compete with it? Little did I know of what dangers lay aheadcf me. I climbed on. I could seethu bay far below me and the mmndain high above. Ohl I was so tired, so very, very tired. My arms and legs ached and blrnw ed as'I pulled my body over 'the ledge, A sheer drop of two-hun- dred feet lay on one side of me, the hard chest of the mountain on the other, I crawled along on my hands and knees pulhng myself along by my arms. One false move and the jagged peaks below would claim my life, It seemed' I wuldnft go a foot farther when, suddenly looming lbw the jaws of a gigan- tic' grizzly bear waiting to be fed, 'was the cave. I was cold with fright, Did I dare enter those gaping jaws? Yes. Curiosity was ferstronger thmithe sense afdana gero I could stand upnow and the relief of my weight from my huns to my feet was almost dizzying, I pulled myself together mmldg-1 ed nearer to the cave, There was an old steel plate andre outside which gave the names of the boys and girls and when the accidents occurede Itwas seventy- eiivghtyears ago, I entered the cave, It was dark and clammy inside, Thewalls were damp and smooth, On onewall was a depression that held clear bubbling water that flowed into nowhereg the other was cracked and crumbled and all moss from water dripping from the ceiling, Strange how dm9KmIlwas'so smooth and the other so rough. The fkmm was strdnge toog it'was soft and cmshdonyq I wondered, nwhat about the knife blade that was never found." 'The knife was found but the'broken blade was still miss- ing. I wondered where it was, It must be here, I began to humifnw ther and farther from the front of the cave. It got spookier and wierder the farther I went. Sud- denly I thought of a story I had heard about the Indians building rooms that hid vast trcasurosand for burying their dead. This was the idea I would work on. If I tapped along the bottom of the smooth wall Iwondered what would happen. I tried it. I'd gone about fifty feet from the mouth of the cave when suddenly Ifelt the floor shivers little when I pressed my foot on a small raised rock yet when I removed my foot the trem- bling stopped. Ididn't know how or what to do, because I didn't know how it worked so I decided to do all my exploring from the cave mouth safe and sound. I rig- ged a rock weighing about twenty pounds over the one I had step- ped on and raised it up about two feet. Ifzlxed a spring under the rock and tied a rope to the string. When I pulled the rope the rock would drop. I went to the mouth of the cave and then pulled. I pulled that rope with all my might. The rock fell and sudden- ly the whole wall and floor fell down about ten feet and the sight I beheld was the greatest I had ever' seen. A little world vas there before my eyes. A valley and a stream and forests green as em- eraldsand lo! avillage. So this is the life the eight victims of the cave had been living. There was no way for me to reach them so the cave still holds its se- cret for as I left the cave the walls slowly moved back the way I had found it . The Mystery of Cave Rock will remain so forever. HARRIETTF7 HIGGINS ' S1 THE FRIENDLY SKUNK 6nce upon a time there was a little skunk. His namewas Per- fume. He was no ordinary skunk because he likedto have friends. Almost every dayhe went into the Park on the edge of the forest to smell the flowers and forget his troubles. And did he have troubles! He was very friendly and everybody was friendly to him until they found out that he was a skunk. Perfume lived on :the edge of the deep, deep forest. One day he decided to go into the forest and hunt for friends. As our little friend walked among the pines he heard animal voices raisedin dis- agreement. There around the next bend wa s practically every ani- mal in the wide woods. And it sounded as if they were all talking at once. Brother Rabbit was sitting on a stump trying to quiet them down. Perfume put m his most grown upair and inquired in a deep voice, "What's the trouble men?' ' "Beat it, you little stink- er," snapped The Old Fox and em- phasized his words by plantinghis foot on Perfume's back end. Depressed andalittle hurt, Perfume snuck off into the forest. But just as he was deciding to gn home he heard a few voices quietly talking. As he listened his curi- osity got the better of him and he crept under the bushes to see what was going on. "Won't you join us," boomed the friendly voice ofMr. Squirrel. "Anybody know what the ex- citement is about in the clear- ing?" quired Perfume in a faint voice. "We're having aprivate dis- cussion over the same thing," cawed Mr. Crow. "We'd better tell you the whole setup," hooted Mr. Owl. "It all started when Brother Field Mouse woke up one morning and found his hole was gone. As he scouted around he heard some men planning to build a hunting lodge in the field. We've got to do something or the humans will shoot us." "Let's take time out to think it over," suggested Rabbit. "Agreed , " everybody n o dded in unison, Now Perfume had avery strong v imagination, so he thought and thought and thought until at last he had a plan. "Everybody gather quick," exclaimed Perfume. 'Her-els what we dQ. Psssssssssst, Pssssssst. "'Good idea," agreed every- body. "Get all the skunkg togethv- er tonight 'at nine by the old hollow tree." Elated by his own idea lit- tle Perfume raced through the forest to tell his mother. Boy was she proud of little skunk, At nine that night every woods pussy for miles around was gathered around the old hollow tree, Also Judge Gwl was there because he' was the dignity of the forest.. "The meeting will now some to order," rapped Old Judge Swl., "We are gathered here tonight to try to rid our domain of hunters. But Perfume Skunk has a plan so Iill let him e::plain.,d Perfume stepped up all rel splendent in a new white stripe. "I have a plan to rid this for- est of unwelcome marauderss Hereis what we do." And they agreed as readily as the others had that afternoon. "Now remember everybody," cautioned Perfume. "We meet to- morrow night at eleven on the edge of the clearing." The next day was spent in preparation as little skunk and Brother Crow went over theirplens of action for the coming night. By eleven oiclock .that night about two-hundred skunks were gathered on the edge of the clear- ing. "Here'are the plans," smt- ed Perfume. "Rastus Skunk you you take fifty friendsg when the crow caws three 'times, you 'eit- tadc Dom thenorth. Brothers Jonas and Horatio take fifty 'frienrds each and, when the crow caws three timesfattack from 'the east and south. The rest of you come with meal! - " Okay , Bro-tha' Crow, oaw three times," As the crowis signal drifted tree,tops, two hun- across the dred white streaks dashed across the clearing and surrounded the large tent of the humans, "Everybody fire," 1151219.13615 fumeis voice'pierced the darkness of the night, When' the smell of the bat- tle rose, the men were hurriedly packing their equipment andnnk- ing ready to abandon iheir lodp pl.:-ns Q The next day there was 'a big celebration in the forest. It seemed as if every aniznalin the whole wide world was there to celebrate. At noon there were speeches and the mayor invited Perfume up on the stage and ev- ,erybody was cheering for 111111 and from that day on Perfume was never lonley again, LAWRENCE coUs INS '50 NECESSITY Miss Ryder made me write this verse, And all my jokes and fun disburse. She makes me type and she wonft let me erase, She made me write this foolishness tofill up this space. DALE D. SOMES '50 BUTCH I'm my mother's little lamb, Yes, by golly, guess I am, I help her every single day By putting all my toys away. I dust the floor up with my clothes, And stamp upon the kittens toes, I wipe my feet on mommy's couch, And when she spanks me hollers ouch. That's why my mother named me Butch, As you have guessed, by now, no doubt Yes, Iim my mother's little lamb, Especially when my dad's about. GERALDINE MERCHANT 'SO' WILL THEY LET ME PLAY IN HEAVEN A little boy was standing on the outskirts of a crowd, Watching the children at their play in which he was not allowed. He leaned heavily on his crutches, loneliness flooding his heart, Wishing, greatly wishing he could also take a part. But when he'd ask them once again they would always say, UNO you cannot play with us, you're only in the way. Then tears would flood his bright blue eyes, and he would softly say nMom, when I go to heaven will the angles let me play?n Uwhen I arrive in heaven, will the angles to me say UNO you cannot play with us you're only in the way?H Then his mother would tell him softly to wipe his tears away For when he went to heaven with the angles he could play. Then one night he joined the angles to really hear them say, The words his mother told himg to run, to jump, and to play. These words they echoed softly among the children at their play, And always they will remember the little boy that was in their way. Now they're really sorry they'd made him stand outside, But his spirit is always with them and in their heart it will reside. SHELIA CARTER 'SO' TO HER SON In the little country church a wreath sadly hung, The words slowly echoed from the song that had been sung, The old parson stood there, And ofre that flag-drapped casket prayed That was the last tribute as they left for his grave, Though you wonft see him tonight'mom, to love and caress, You know he died for his'country, now youlve laid him to rest, Those flowers around him, Are treasures unknowng For tonight hels with Jesus around the bright throne, He fought for his country on the battlefield in France, He gave up his life and took a last chance, The shells burst around him, Like great arching domesg And Jesus called silently for him to come home, After six years of waiting, Mom, he came home today, The bells started pealing, and the parson began to pray, And you saw'all those flowers, You were oh, so brave, As you saw this last tribute, as they left for his grave, CHARLENE CARTER '49 THIS HUSPITAL MATTRESS Oh, this hospital mattress, Iill never forget There's a place on my shoulder that hasnlt healed yet, I twist and I turn, but whatever I do, I still get that bump where the spring comes through, live turned it and pounded, enclosed it in braces But itls bound to get me in the funniest places, I think I'm all set when something goes nbinglu And Iim held good and fast with my toe in a spring, As soon as Ifm free from this terrible trap I try settling down for a much needed nap, But, then the nurse my intentions disrupt' The day has begun and itfs time to get up. DANA SMITH 150 MOST HONORABLE SENIORS We, Freshman class of '52, Are new and kind of green, But when you Seniors say, HSaluteU, We know just what you mean. We know what you expect , 1 When you give us a com and, ,.,, So we'll always answer with respect And try to understand, And when your graduation nears, " Youfll surely remember then, ' . While youire pondering back across the years How loyal we have been, A '. When your high school days are through And we're coming up the line, Many memories will be of you Dear class of 149. A FRANK MANCHESTER '52 THE JUNIOR TYPING CLASS I sit in the second seat up from the front, Where all the girls start to begin their stunts, Kay usually starts us off with a merry little tune, Which in my estimation lasts until noon, Next is Ruthie, whols always late for class, But we donlt mind for shels quite a special lassg Jerry talks about Bobby, morning, noon and night, But we just ignore her, hoping sheill see'the light, Polly pretends she is as quiet as a mouse, While we sit around, hoping she wonft tear down the'house. Barbara has to go out as soon as the bell will ring, To calm down her Sonny and listen to him sing, Mary will do her assignments and type a note, And then off to Bar Harbor she will float, Nancy is as good a cheerleader as you can find, And in typing she is far from behind, Last but not least is Ida, off gossiping with her friends, And believe me, they sound like a bunch of cackling hens, We mustnlt forget Miss Ryder's never on time, To give us our speed test and make us climb, I1d better warn you then now, so you wonlt fear, For they will be the Seniors coming up next year. Well, Iive sum ed them all up, and as far as I can guess, They are as bad as the best and as good as the rest. MARY GRAVES '50 THE FISHERMAN Down over the hill and onto the dock Then off to Bakers or maybe the Rockg He loves the sea, the fresh salt air, And with a boat can go anywhere. Year in, year out he has sailed the ocean And follows his trade with loving devotion Come rain or fog or sleet or snow, He never gets lost but knows just where to go. Now, of whom I speak you can almost guess, For as a lobster fisherman he's one of the best. With a pipe in his mouth and a deck under his feet This great old guy can't be beat. If you yet don't know the name of this old I will have to bring this poem to a halt. So, heave to, lads and lasses, and haul in It couldn't be any other than Captain Bill NANCY salt, the slack, Black. C-RAVBS 'So SONG REVIEW Dear uMargien, ULilletten and I left on a HSlow Boat To Chinan at nThree O'clock In The Morningn on Tuesday. On the boat we met UJudalineu and her fiance, HRag Time Cowboy Joan. There was a lot of entertainment. NAlexander's Rag Time Bandu, was playing while nTeresan sang about the nBlue Texas Moonlightn. We stopped at NManagua Nicaraguan for a day. We saw nThe Spanish Cavaliern doing the HSpanish Two Stepu. Back on board the ship we had nTea For Twon. Finally after ten days of sailing we reached NHong Kongu We met many of our old friends such as nLindaN, uFrankie and Johnnyn, NMaryn, HPeggy O'neiln, and USweet Georgia Brownn, who were also seeking to see HFaraway Placesn. After a few days of exploring, we found things weren't much different from HAmericaH since China has been modernized. ,Gee, nLife Gets Tedious, Don't Itn?

' Love nAlwaysn, Nninahll GERALDINE MERCHANT 'SO PLAY BALL I chanced to pass a ball park on my way the other day, The last place you'd expect to find advice given away, 'Twas from an old time catcher, many a game he'd saved, And to his pal in trouble, this advice he gave-- nKeep 'em over the plate, Tex, keep 'em comin' low, Watch that double windup, Kid. Sure, thatls right, you know, Watch that man on second and the one on first is fast? This game ain't lost, Kid, 'til you come to the last.' From that roughest bunch of players came a lesson 'oft forgot That to help a pal in trouble can often mean a lot, All the fans that were standing and clamoring for an out, Can learn that greatest lesson when this old timer shouts-- nKeep your feet on the ground boy, don't go up in the air, Keep 'em over the plate, Tex, keep 'em comin' fairi Many a game has been landed when it looked in doubt, This game ain't lost, Kid, 'til the last man's out.

A., in high schools large and small the National Honor Society remains to be the society of the highest standards and respect. There are four factors of which the Society demands the stu- dent to have in order to become a member of the National Honor Society. These factors are Character, Leadership,Co-operation and Scholarship. In our small school each year we are unable to have an active Society because of the small number which belong to it. In the Junior class only one is usually elected and in the Senior class only three are elected. Although we are not active we realize the honor bestowed upon us and shall carry it with us wherever we go. ifilbli N...-OSE On November 22 at the Seal Harbor Neighborhood House the an- nual senior play was presented. nShiny Nosen,a three-act comedy by Christopher Sergel, was chosen by the seniors this year. It is a play well adapted to a teen-age group. Janey, the leading charac- ter, is played by Jeanne Coston. As the curtain rises Janey is primping for her most important date. But her family has decided she's too young to Ngo steadyn, and that this is to be her last date with the handsome George Anderson, none other than Niffy Smallidge. Janey rebells, but the parents, Mrs. Marble, a most sympathetic and pacific character played by Mary Cunningham, and Mr. Marble, in civilian life Donnie Grindle, an ardentcinms player who hates noise and music, just say she's too romantic and Hsees too many moviesn. Janey drags her younger sister, Zip, away from her sling records to help her plan to make an everlasting impres- sion on George. Meanwhile, Helen, who has quite a way with the men, played by Eleanor Merchant, tricks George into going to the dance with her, and Janey makes her grand entrance with no one to see it. At this point Janey decides to capture an ex-boy friend of Helen's, Allen Rogers,a part well portrayed by Paul Richardson. In a hilarious scene Janey attempts to make George jealous. This backfires, and, with everything gone wrong Janey decides to nrun awayn from hone. Then when she asks her father if he doesn't want to 'reasonn with her, and he just says, UWell, good-byeu, she's in a worse fix. Peggy, who is mighty intrigued with it all, was well played by Isabelle Pinkham. Madge, who almost upset Helen's plans with her man Allen, is rather nicely done by a newcomer to the Gilman stage,Carolyn Buzzell. Coach Brown,who hates alumni, played by HaroldHSonnyHCoombs, is always popping in at the Marble's look- ing for his star player, George. The final happy twist of thefiot that solves everything made the play one enjoyed by all. NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY SEATED: Harold Coombs, Jr., Mary Cunningham, Allan Cousins.

X KARNIVAL Friday, March 18, l9h9 On this date the big event of the year took place, the annual School Karnival. This was the second karnival of this sort which Gil- man has sponsored. Lastyear,iJ1the spring, the idea of having a karnival was intro- duced to the students for the first time. The idea was met with approval and, since the Athletic Fund needed more money in order to carry out its functions, it was decided that the profits should be put into the Athletic Fund. This karnival was a huge success and greatly replenished the Fund. This year's karnival was run in much the same manner as that of last year. Each class chose booths which were operated once again for the Athletic Fund's benefit. Around the booths were many posters and signs advertising the various games and lunch booths and the gym of the Neighborhood Hall was decorated in a colorful fashion. Crepe paper streamers all about the room represented the blue sky and a paper hoop, lighted by electricity, represented a moon- Finally the zero hour arrived and the doors were thrown open to admit the crowd of fun seekers. Soon the hall hummed with activity and the booths were doing business at top speed. Many people bought hot dogs and pop along with ice cream. They played ring-toss, ping-pong, threw darts, bowled and learned their future from the mystic fortune tellers. They were also able to re- fresh themselves in the attractive Spanish tea room on the second floor. But all good things must soon come to an end and the afternoon was no exception, so the crowd left and the clean-up crew took over. In the evening the hall was reopened and a miraculous change had taken place. The booths were gone and in their places were neatly ar- ranged chairs and the hall was in readiness for the Klassy Karnival Dance. After quite a crowd had gathered, and the orchestra was ready, the music started and the candidates for king and queen promenaded the length of the Neighborhood House. In the line were Val Frye, Mary Cunningham, Helen Robinson, Lillis Joy, Ruth Chase, Thomas Graves, John Smallidge, Paul Richardson, Frank Manchester and Stetson Carter. This line was followed by the crown bearers, Sylvia McPheters and Du- ane Smith. After the candidates were all lined up and the crown bearers were in their places, the king and queen Don Grindle and Bet- sy Bryant entered. The Coronation was performed by Father Kiqnney, after which the king and queen ruled the Ball for the remainder of the evening. The dance which followed with the music su plied by George Fish- er's Orchestra was very enjoyable. Thus,the 1959 Karnival was br- ought to an end. HAROLD coomss '49 THE GLEE CLUB Our Glee Club started this year with an enrollment of fourteen, twelve girls and two boys. It has been said that it is quality not quantity that counts and that seems to apply to our glee club, espe- cially to the boys. We made our first public appearance at the Senior three act play, and since then we have sung at assemblies and the one act play con- test. Since thebeginning of the year we have recruited many new male members, but much to our sorrow, have lost some of the fair sex. DALE SOMES '50 ONE ACT PLAYS The one act plays, "I'm A Fool" and "The Bathroom Door", were sponsored by the class of 1950 this year. They were first present- ed as a preliminary contest at the Northeast Harbor Neighborhood House forthebenefit of the class fund, with, "I'm A Fool" a dramatization of the story of Sherwood Anderson declared the winner. On March 27 this group of Gilman actors journeyed to Southwest Harbor to compete in a- contest against Pemetic and Bar Harbor, but Bar Harbor High School withdrew its entry, leaving Gilman and Pemetic in the running. Themembers of the cast want to congratulate Pemetic on their excel- lent performance. The characters of "I'm A Fool" consisted of George, played by Donald Grindle, who was a stable hand who had three twenty five cent cigars and was all duded up, when in came his mother, played by Mari- lyn Jordan, and his sister, Mildred played by Ida Leonard, who told himhe was always bragging himself up. The dude, who was at the races, was portrayed by Frankie Manchester. Burt, who had a hot tip, was played by Ronald Dickey. Wilber, played by Paul Richardson, Lucy, the admirer of George by Geraldine Merchant, and Elinor played by Ida Beal, were the characters who came to see the races. 'lhe time setting of this play was back in the l900's. All wore costumes of that period which added local color to the play, and en- hanced the humerous quality of the lines and situations. 'ihe characters of "The Bathroom Door" consisted of a young man, played by Dale, a young lady, no other than Valerie Frye, old gentle- man, Ralph Tracy, Jr., elderly lady, Harriet Higgins, prima donna, Lillis Joy and the Boots by Dana Smith. The plot of this little English comedy by Gertrude Jennings was laid in a corridor of a large hotel and portrayed all the difficul- ties of these certain guests who all arrived at the bathroom door at eight A.M. The plot was climaxed when the Boots announced that the lock was broken and then revealed that the bathroom was empty instead of containing the dead body of prima donna's ficticious husband.

EM fl of U f' J VARSITY BASKETBALL WRITEaUP The Blue Streaks of Gilman High School finished the season with a tally of 5 wins and 15 loses. Although we havenft won many 'games, I feel that we have had a let of fun, because we have learned winning isn't the important thing in sports. Sportsmanship is the highest value to be derived from any game. ' The first game .of the season found us engaged with Searsport at the local nets on November 25. This first encounter brought out some of our abilities, but it took a few more games to test our strength. The outcome of the game was Gilman 423 Searspert 24. - December 5 found us at Bucksport to play the strongly favored Golden Bucks. Ora Gott turned in a hard fought backboard game as the Bucks trounced us 49 to 50. Football season opened December 10 at Northeast Harbor Negpbonnood House, at least we all thought so after the Husson game. We played a rough, hard fought game, with Husson winning 41----56. Captain Smal- lidge was high scorer with 15 pointi On December 15 the Blue Streaks on the Southwest Harbor Cami ph ? ed Blue Hill. I think they still had some of that champion iblood in them as they pinned our ears back with a score of 44 ---- 55. Smallidge and Walls were high scorers with 15 and 15 points respectively. 'We arenft doing so well are we, but the season isn't over yet, On December l8Nwe were at Southwest again to play Dexter. What a game! Dexter set the pace all the way, but we turned the tables on them in the last quarter enough to nose them out by one point. At the final whistle 'the score was Gilman 55 ---- Dexter 54. Niffy again was high scorer with 12 points. Speaking of class,.that's what the Ellsworth Eagles had when they troundcd us 65 ---- 25 at Southwest Harbor on December 22. January 4, new year, new punch for the basketball of the Blue Streaks. If you den't think Bar Harbor was scared, you ought to fhave seen Coach Mansfield. Gilman really played a swell game but Bar Harbor won after trailing for three periods by a score of 48-42. Donald Grin- our fish nets. Boy, were dle played a fine defensive game and tossed in 9 points :while Smale lidge was high scorer with 16 points The night of January 7, we cruised to Blue Hill to take grcvenge for our first game. They were tournament bound and we couldnft step them, They took command after the half time rest and won by 44---52. John Wallsand Richardson lead the losers with 10 and 8 points respec- tively. January ll we added a new team to our was a long ride but was a high scoring contest which we lost to Smallidge lead again Our next encounter was with Belfast at roster, Winter Harbor.

Niffy and Johnny were high SCOPGTS. football pads when we journeyed to Bangor toplay were hot and ran over us by a score of 49 ---- 29. We all took our Husson College. They QI'm taking the record from a new score book now, but the scores are still against us.J Bucksport journeyed on January 26 down to Southwest Harbor to play a final game with us. We sure missed Capt. Smallidge mrBucksport ran over us 59----29. Walls was high scorer. February 1 found us again in Southwest to play a return gamevdth the Pemetic Indians. We took their war paint and tomahawks and scared the daylights out of them, but in the final frames they mxovered dyjr weapons and chased us home to the tune of 51 ---- 55. February Qiwas another long journey to Belfast but it was surely worth it oven thouih we were exhausted after a strenuous evening. Two overtime periods and a rough house made the game exciting. All the boys played a hard fought game which abounded in good team work.J6hn-- ny and Niffy lead with 21 and SO points each. Gilman 59---3a1faSt'53, February ll found us at Northeast playing Winter Harbor but this time we were the victors. Another game which showed that the team was playing together and in good form. Gilman 46 ---- Winter Harbor 56. Bar Harbor again, the jinx team! We, of course, lost, but it was a well played game. Suminsby played a hard game and accounted for 14 points while Niffy had the sane number, Our last game was a close one in which Searsport was the victim on their home court. We lead all the way but we played a cageyvgamei we thought, We won 45 ---- 40. To all you underclassmen, the Seniors and I would like to wish the best of luck and much success for the coming season. We shall miss being with you when the autumn rolls around, but we shall be watching for and interested in your prowess and good sportsmanship in this game we have enjoyed playing together these past four years.

CHEERLEADERS Three new cheerleaders, Ruth Frazier, Barbara McCrae, and Ida Beale joined the veteran cheerleaders and head cheerleader, Nancy Graves, in steady practice to make this a successful year. The cheerleaders made uniforms of royal blue trimmed with 'white. The girls had sandwich and candy sales to earn money with which to pay for their uniforms, At a recent meeting it was decided to have the same girls cheer next year as did this year. Letters with gold megaphones were awarded to the girls. NANCY GRAVES 'So THE GILMAN ARMY The Gilman Army was all ready to start. At last the orders came through. Gilman was on a secret mission. I say secret be- cause no one knew who would win. The first order was to move to the lines to hold back Searsport. They were strong, so as a result we were defeated and driven back 20-31. We learned a few points from the last mission, so we were ready for the next. Our crew was ready to go back to the lines to fight. We took on Sullivan. Once again we were defeated 19-22. Nevertheless we were enthusiastic and ready to embark on our next mission which was with Husson. Again we were defeated in bat- tls 28"3M-0 Back home once more we were calm and waitingfbr our next ord- ers. When they came we were again tramping over dangerous ground to Blue Hill. It was certainly dangerous because when they opened fire, we fled defeated 18-36. Still we weren't satisfied, so we went back again to attack Blue Hill at Southwest Harbor, only to get trounced again 20-32. At this point we Hiizthat we were more organized and that the crew was in good condition. We had a little encouragment so we ended in a tie, 31-31. With this experience we went into conflict with Ellsworth. We battled long and hard, and got results. We beat them hh-29. Now we were waiting for the day when our orders would say to take on Husson. We marched into Bangor with our flags flying, only to be driven back 23-26. Now we had to take care of a few spys in our own town, those alumnae, but it turned out they took care of us 16-19.

We were ready for Pemetic now. Our men were camoflagued and our firearms and troops were marched into Pemeticfs midst. Posi- tions were taken but we got a licking 20-51. Still all these defeats were not enough to discourage us, so we took on Sullivan, We took for our slogan that night, Uwhere therefs a will there's a wayu, and we took them 59-54. But again our courage was built up on false alarms. When the air-raid signal was giwmiwe went into action against Ellsworth. We were beaten 28-57. Ohl well, you canlt win all the time so when our orders came through we left to take on Winter Harbor. Our crew was pretty good that night and we hoisted our flag to celebrate a 54-17 victory. Once our flag was flying, our hearts were' proud. So we marched into Pemetic, but we came out under fire with Pemetic 44, and Hornets 21. It was a bloody battle. Well this one was the wind-up. Our troops were ready and this was our last battle so we invaded Searsport. Our company got defeated 29-42. In behalf of the girl's basketball team I would like to thank Coach Ryder for all her patience, time she has spent with us, and help she has given us.
