Here's to you... Mr. Anderson...and our best wishes go with you! THE EDITORIAL STAFF I-IAYDEN L. V. ANDERSON Prinripal of the junior High School Jn uqppreciaiion 0 gzolnle Setvice DR. WALTER EARLE RUSSELL "Gladly wolde he lerne and gladly techef' The retirement of Dr. Russell, for forty-five years teacher and principal of the Gorham Normal School, marks an occasion on which we pause, and with regret and pride, loolc back over the past, regret that a great active teach- ing career is over, and pride in the accomplish- ments of that career. The vision of a well-equipped school that would offer to its students better academic training and longer periods of practice teaching has been realized by Dr. Russell. Today the -C haucer educational program has taken on new color, adopting extra curricular activities that tend to make the "punishment of learningv not quite so foreboding. G. N. S. is the shadow of his service to youth. Here he has trained, inspired, and guided the young people who in turn have carried on that influence throughout the state of Maine and into other parts of the country. The influence of Dr. Russellas early home in the small town of Fayette, Maine, was imporm Qt. Waite? fgusself tant. Surely, this strong New Englander, has dedicated his life to generous and unselfish service, both in his profession and in the civic affairs of his community. The value of his early years of study and training must not be discounted. After attending Maine Wesleyan Seminary, he began to give serious thought to his choice of life work, which became teaching. Following his graduation from Wesleyan Uni- versity in Connecticut, he started his teaching career at Teachers Normal School in New Britain, Connecticut. His early years as a teacher at G. N. S. led him step by step to the position of principal. A Not the least of the many evidences of his good judgment is his choice of a helpmate, Winifred Stone, whom he married in 1896. In 1905, Dr. Russell became principal and the following year, the Russell family moved into the then newly erected principal's residence. The Russells have five children-Earle, Willis, Helen, Robert, and Celia. Who, of the hun- dreds of alumni of the school on the hill, does not recall with pleasure the many occasions upon which Mrs. Russell has added to the pleasure of the school's social events by her gracious presence? By virtue of her quiet dig- nity, she has endeared herself to the hearts of the many who have come in contact with her. Many interesting and difficult problems have presented themselves to Dr. Russell during his service here. These various experiences served to give him knowledge of the ever increasing theories of educational practices which have come before him during the last thirty-five years. In 1906, Dr. Russell assumed the position of principal, a position which by the very nature of the institution offered him the opportunity he desired-to serve youth. Under Dr. Russellis able administration, the school has grown and developed from a teach- ers' training school offering a two year course with an enrollment of ninety-eight to a state teachers' college with three hundred and seventy pupils. The school now offers four courses- kindergarten, general, junior high and indus- trial arts. Robie Hall, East Hall, the principalis residence, the Forge Shop, and Russell Hall, so fittingly named in his honor have been added to the now twenty-five acres of our beautiful campus. The number of faculty members has grown from nine to thirty-four. The period of practice teaching has been changed from a few weeks of part time training to eighteen weeks of full time training. An examination is now required for admission. Dr. Russell is a man of broad interests and tireless energy. In addition to his many school responsibilities, he has been very active in civic affairs. He is a member of the Methodist Church and of the board of trustees of the Gorham Savings Bank. He has been a past president of the Maine Teachers' Association and the Lions Club. His favorite sport is golf. Dr. Russell stands today at the very zenith of a highly successful career amid the respect and admiration of the men and women who know him for what he has done, what he is doing, and what he is. He stands before us exemplifying the virtues he has desired to in- still in the minds and hearts of the young people he has led-qualities which he has de- veloped from his own philosophies of life. Per- haps the stranger would see only his outward virtues-his quiet dignity, his cheerful opti- mism, ready wit and sincerity, but we who know him have been inspired by those deeper qualities and we honor him today as a man of vision, steadfast in his purposes and ideals, and to us all a guide, philosopher, and friend. .qjean mellie gofzcfan NELLIE B. JORDAN "The heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, the hand to executef' Miss Jordan,s retirement this June is taking from us another of the Normal School's ad- ministrators whose ideals have helped make this school what it is today. For eighteen years Miss Jordan has played an important part in the daily life of the school as teacher and Dean of Women. Miss jordan was born in Chelsea, Massachu- settsg she received her elementary education in the schools there. She graduated from Gor- ham Normal School in 1901, did graduate work at both Harvard University and Boston Uni- versity, and received her Bachelor of Science degree from the latter in 1927. She taught in the elementary schools of South Portland and of Hingham, Massachusetts, for nearly ten years, was history instructor at Aroostook State Normal School, and was instructor of physical education in the State Department of Education before she became a member of the faculty here in 1922. Among the subjects she has taught here are English History, History Methods, Maine History, and Penmanship. -funius She has also been adviser of the House Com- mittee, has taken an important part in the annual May Ball plans, and this year has helped to organize the Walter E. Russell Chap- ter of the Future Teachers of America. She has also taken an active part in the life of the town as a member of the Annie Louise Carey Club and the Cosmopolitan Club and has been a loyal and helpful worker in the Methodist Church. Among her hobbies are photography, fishing and music, she is an accomplished pianist. She also enjoys travel and has been to Europe twice, once as hostess for a special excursion of Gor- ham alumnae. Perhaps we will remember her most, how- ever, for her friendly helpfulness, her quiet force and her dignity. All who have known her will agree with Dr. Russell in saying, 'll-ler leaving will be regretted not only by her fellow faculty members with whom she has cooper- ated so cordially all these years, but also by hosts of alumni who loolc upon her as a friendly teacher and wise counsellor." Clifford o. .iz fuzeaeil CLIFFORD O. T. VVIEDEN At the end of the present school year, Mr. Wieden will sever his connection with the Gor- ham Normal School to become principal of the normal school at Presque Isle. During the sixteen years that Mr. Wieden has been an instructor, coach, athletic director, counselor, and friend at Gorham, he has con- tributed much of standing value for the beneht of the school as a teacher-preparatory insti- tution. Mr. Wieden was born in Wilmington, Dela- ware. When he was still young, his family moved to New Haven, Connecticut, where he began his elementary education. At the age of seven, he moved with his family to New Sweden, Maine. There he attended a rural school, and later' commuted to Caribou High School on the electric cars. He attended Colby College for one year and then transferred to Arcadia University in Nova Scotia. At Arcadia he majored in Biology and minored in Chemis- try. After receiving his B.S. degree from that school he became sub-master of Mapleton High School. He left Mapleton to come to Gorham. During his service here he has been furthering his own education by attending Bates College during the summer sessions, and there he earned his Master's Degree in Education. He has also earned credits toward his doctorate at Boston University, majoring in Educational Measurements and Social Sciences. This thorough training, together with six- teen years of service here at Gorham have placed him in an enviable position in the edu- cational field in Maine. Among the subjects he has taught here at Gorham are Economics, Sociology, Educational Measures, Political Sci- ence, and Introduction to Teaching. All of his classes have enjoyed his arguments, his inclina- tion toward statistical realities, his sly wit, and his invigorating manner. Besides his work in his classes, he has been coach of basketball, he has introduced and coached track, and has encouraged athletic com- petition between New England teacher training institutions. As athletic administrator, he has urged the adoption of a closer school-student financial cooperation in buying equipment. Cutside of his work here at Gorham, his talents as organizer and administrator have been recognized, he has been elected President of the New England Teachers' Athletic Con- ference and Secretary of the Western Maine Approved Basketball Officials. Mr. Wieden and Mrs. Wieden have taken an active part in the community life of Gor- ham. Mr. Wieden has been a past ofiicer in four lodges of the Masonic order, is a member of the Congregational Church, and has been interested in all town affairs. Mrs. Wieden is a member of the Eastern Star, has been Presi- dent of the Woman's Club, and has taken an active part in the Ladies' Circle, Cosmopolitan Club, Community Club, and Social Club. Gorham is going to miss Mr. Wieden greatly, but Presque Isle is benefiting by our loss. The whole school joins in wishing Mr. Wieden and his family best of luck in their future home!

TO TI-IE STUDENTS OF TI-IE GORI-IAM NORMAL SCI-IOOL You came to the Gorham Normal School to train for teaching. What the Gorham Normal School can do for you is limited by the personality you brought with you. It could do nothing for you had not several other agencies prepared the way. Not only the present world by which you are surrounded but also all time has put you under tribute for your training to teach. Your ancestors contributed the gifts with which you were endowed at birth and all your world of past and present has stimulated the development of those gifts to Hr you for service. Some of the elements in this world of yours to which you are most indebted are your homes, your school, your church and your community, perhaps in the order named. The part of your community that has effected you most, for good or ill, consists of your personal friends and playmates. The Gorham Normal School has been only one agency in the process of making you a trained teacher. Its part has been to take the personality you brought and to help you to broaden your cultural foundation, to elevate your character and to acquire the skills to use your personality effectively as a teacher. In spite of all your rich gifts of nature and in spite of the stimulating influences of environ- ment, if you become a well-trained teacher the credit will be chiefly due to your own effort. Accept the responsibility, be undismayed, keep persistently trying to improve. Never be satis- fied with your attainments. w A.,,.a,z5 WAL'TER EARLE RUSSELL, horn Fayette, Maine.

DO-MI-SOL-DO CLASS AND PRACTICE THE TRAINING SCHOOL You canit become a good teacher without first practicing the arts and crafts you have studied as theories. Therein lies the reason for practice teaching. So all of us, somewhere in our courses, have a chance to try ourselves out in actual teaching situations. But weire not left to our own devices, we're helped and en- couraged every step of the way by a wise teacher-in-charge, who saves us and our charges from too much blundering. Miss Hastings, as Director of Training, is one guide and friend during those weeks of practice teaching. She knows what she wants, and she knows how to get us to give it to her. She has wisdom and patience, fgoodness knows, she needs it!j and humor and good common sense. We leave her care with courage and enthusiasm to take up the problems of our schools when we have graduated. Are there any troubles in this fascinating business of practice teaching. Just ask those who've tried it! Plans, and more plans, play- ground work, discipline, programs and parents, measles and mumps, blackboard calendars, pro- grams-what a miscellany of matters we find we must deal with if we are going to be teachers! And what about the satisfaction? A feeling of growing power, of work well done, of SOCRATIC METHOD laughter that cheers the dullest day, of increas- ing interest and confidence, and finally a glori- ous glimpse of the rewards that come to the real teacher-these are the things that blot out all the little worries. TYPICAL UNITS IN THE TRAINING SCHOOL A more realistic South American Jungle and garden just couldn't be found! That is what the members of the fourth grade thought when they Hnished their South American activity under the direction of Miss Peabody. Every article in the corner devoted to this activity was designed and made by the pupils. Green construction paper furnished the ground work. A brown paper Amazon River upon which there was a dug-out canoe, flowed through it. The Jungle was very realistic with its odd shaped trees and leaves originally designed by the pupils. Three types of South American houses were situated at intervals throughout the jungle. Banana trees and pineapple plants grew in a garden beside one of the houses. The banana trees were cleverly designed with long leaves and a bunch of bananas ready for picking. Pine cones covered with orange crepe paper served as pineapple plants. Page Sixty-lwo SANDTABLE PLAY This activity covered about four weeks. A Part of every afternoon was set aside for its supervised construction. Another of its units in the course of study for the fourth grade is the study of Vikings. Under the guidance of Miss Jean Pride, their student teacher, the children suggested many interesting ways of creating the Viking atmos- phere in the schoolroom. By far the most pop- ular suggestion was the making of a Viking ship. The children eagerly brought cardboard boxes, orange crates, sheeting, tacks, hammer, saw, scotch tape and any other materials which they thought might be helpful. The boxes were taken apart and the sides of the boat made. Sheeting with crepe paper stripes pinned on made an ideal sail and the seats were converted orange crates. Like all good Viking boats, this one had a green serpentis head on the prow and tail on stern. After many struggles to get it tilted realistically, this awesome figure was erected. The flaming mouth and glaring eyes were the creation of the best artists in the grade. At the conclusion of the project, the fourth graders were glad to welcome the many visitors who came to view their work. STUDENT COUNCIL - TRAINING SCHOOL President MALCOLM BRXDGHAM Secretary-Treasurer PAUL HAMBLER The three upper grades of the Training School, which constitutes the Junior High grades, are under the guidance and open to the Page Sixty-three NATURE STUDY recommendations of the Student Council for the second year. The Council, made up of the presidents of each class, two elected members from the seventh and eighth grades and three elected members from the ninth grade, often meet without the presence of a member of the faculty and try to propose ideas for improving conditions around the school. This year their chief aim has been to publish a Handbook independent of the other school publications, which would include the revised school rules, explanations of certain school prac- tices, school songs, calendar of school events, and the purposes, objectives and news concern- ing the various clubs of the Junior High School. Besides publishing the Handbook the Stu- dent Council has planned an assembly, given a May Dance for the members of the school, and have taken a trip to Augusta for the Con- vention of High School Senate where there is always a mutual growth with the exchange of ideas involved in student management. It is by participating in such types of activi- ties as the two listed above that the student in training receives the many-sided preparation for success in his profession. In the small space we have to give to so large a part of our training in Gorham, we cannot adequately cover the Held. So we have chosen, from our own Training School on the campus, two of the most interesting phases of the school year, one a report of some units carried on in the Fourth Grade, and the other, a pupil-controlled project worked out in the Junior High School. SOUNDING BRASS AND TINKLING CYMBAL GRCHESTRA The orchestra under the direction of Miss Andrews meets Friday during the club period. It plays an important part in our school life. The orchestra, an indispensable part of any school, makes us more appreciative of what is the finest of the arts-good music. No other art has led men to such noble aspirations, to greater peace and solitude of soul than has good music. Good music like all other valuable things, is not to be had for the wishing. It takes work, persistence and the joy of accomplish- ment to transform the printed page to beauty of sound. To Miss Andrews and these members of the orchestra, we give credit and acknowl- edge our gratitude for their line job.

The first chapel was conducted by the Com- mittee as usual. Bertha Bourne and Wilmer Van Blaricum spoke for the students concern- ing the extra curricula opportunities, and Dr. Russell gave a short talk on the more academic side of school life. In November, the Committee supervised and made arrangements for the students to enter- tain at Superintendents' and Principals, Day. This year, it divided Citizenship Week by considering those topics dealing with citizenship generally, and those dealing with formal eti- quette, the latter will be presented in the spring previous to the May Ball. The third Back to Gorham Day was held in February. Many of our recent alumni attended, and the work of the Committee received much praise. Other functions are holding freshmen elec- tions and supervising their elections for repre- sentatives to the Committee. This Committee handles the selection of all candidates to the Boston and New York Con- ventions and submits their preferences to the student body for final voting. The delegates to the New England Teachers' Training Associa- tion at Boston were Edward Race, John Greer, Ray Austin, and Laura Meserve, with Miss Harris as faculty representative. Miss Lewis and Mr. Cilley represented the faculty at the Eastern States Conference in New York in April, and the student delegates were Paul Roberts, Thomas Corrigan and Catherine Lewis. Members: W.

Aided by Miss Jordaifs helpful guidance the Committee quietly carries out its duties. Every Wednesday night they meet to discuss ways and means of improving conditions in the dormitory. Occa- sionally, they call all dormitory girls together for a student Council meeting for the purpose of suggesting that rules be more carefully ob- served and in the second quarter to elect a new committee. Quietness during study hours and lights out rules along with the work of collect- ing mail are factors forming a large part of the House Committee,s duties. Not all of the Committee's time is spent in the carrying out of its governing rules. Early in the year they entertained the Rhode Island basketball team. At Christmas time they pre- sented a very attractive and typical chapel pro- gram and followed it up with a Christmas tree in East Hall dining room for the students. The new year was started off with the custom- ary banquet for the new members. When the Outing Club sponsored their winter carnival, committee members were active proving their ability as sculptors.

Soon it was busy pre- paring for Superintendents' and Principals, Day, at which antiphonal singing was intro- duced. The following month found them getting a thrill from seeing candles in the townspeople's windows inviting them to sing a carol. They were grateful to Miss Keene,s large basket of candy which was carried to Lowlecrest, where the evening was polished off with light refreshments and more singing. Their harmony had so improved that Miss Andrews decided that they were ready to give a concert for the public. They worked hard to present Q'An Evening of Musicl' with the Women's Glee Club and Orchestra. The following week a portion of this concert was repeated on a Sunday afternoon radio program.

The programs have included a discussion of the life of the poet, a reading of some of his works, and, often, an appropriate musical selection. The club has contributed to the cultural en- richment of all by bringing Mrs. Dagmar Potholm Petersen to Russell Hall for two readings-Abe Lincoln in Illinois and Life Witlr Father. There are several events which members of the club have come to regard as uannualsn and these are looked forward to with pleasant anti- cipation.

It served as a tie-line to a greater cooperative and enthusiastic spirit in this club. From it devel- oped greater practice and theory work in the art of makeup, manufacturing of scenery, costuming and coaching. Mr. Sloat took the lead in presenting this instructive material. The program committee, during the last quarter, presented some scenes stressing many acting problems fundamental to directing any dramatic production.

Throughout the year they have been on a weekend outing at Douglas Hill, a picnic at Watchic Lake and had a party in the recreation room. Of great interest to its members were the trip to Portland to see Mrs. Roundy's dis- play of candles and a visit to the Art Museum and the handicraft exhibit of the workers at North Jay. At meetings the members have made Christ- mas cards for their own personal use and also cards which the club sold, made various gadgets using leather as a medium, studied the mechan- ics of marionettes and made their own puppets, and have made various decorative utensils for household use.

DEEP VERSED IN BOOKS Page Seventy-one THE ORACLE This year the Oracle has tried to report the incidents of school lifeg those incidents of the students in the classroom, as participants in sports, as promoters of special activities, and as schoolmates. The faculty were brought nearer to the stu- dents by the informal treatment given them in the interview and succeeding write-ups. The Oracle Board has tried to include more pictures of student activities and of individuals prominent in Gorham's scene. When unable to do this, they presented personality columns. In the Exchange the Oracle staff often printed views and happenings, both informa- tive and humorous, of other normal schools and teachers, colleges. ORACLE STAFF FOR 1939-1940 Editor-in-Chief H.

Have we accomplished our purpose and plan of portraying the process by which Gorham Normal School makes its teachers? We hope so. It isn't formal, you notice. We thought a change of heart would do it some good. Our hope is that it will remind you from time to time, in your own vernacular, how this year of yours in Gorham Normal has added to your growth and experiences. There was plenty of fun working it out for you. But all the fun did not come from work done. That annual brainstorm of our adviser, Miss Lewis, better known as the "Murder Party" furnished the high spot in our recrea- tion. The wind and rain adding plenty to the darkness and eeriness of that vacant South Street house we utilized. We're even planning another one, only the right one will be "mur- dered" this time! Chief purpose of the GREEN AND WHITE Board is to prepare and present a yearbook to the students and faculty. This year the Board has endeavored to por- tray the progress by which Gorham Normal School makes its teachers. . We have tried to present a yearbook that is in no way formalg this is the result of a dis- tinct change in form from the previous GREEN AND WI-IITE. We hope that this book will remind you many times of the experiences that had im- portant hearing upon your training at Gorham. Editors T. CORRIGAN I. PIKE Assistant Editors M. DOE B. ROBINSON M.

OFFICERS President JOHN GREER Vice President PAUL ROBERTS Secretary-Treasurer EDWARD RACE The Y. M. C. A. is made up of a group of students who enjoy good fellowship, good dis- cussion, and good fun. The various fields of this group's work and play combine to empha- size in the minds of the members the value of acknowledging the other fellowis point of view, the brotherhood of man, and the worth of realizing how God can influence the thoughts, ideals, and purposes of a man's life. In striving to attain these ends, the Y. has moved in a new direction this year. The popu- larity of the radio program "Town Hall of the Airv led to the adoption of this method of discussion of topics of the day. The subjects chosen were always the same as those heard on the radio the same night, but the time of the Y. discussion preceded that of the broad- cast. Don't think these boys are always serious. They roared with joy the night that pictures were shown of life on Gorham hill fifteen years ago-can you imagine it? Then, too, the out- ings and hot dog jaunts led by Pack's new Pontiac are among other memories that will remain their pictures of life at college. Members: R. Neal, M. Davis, A. Wakeneld, E. Ogden E.

One of their most popular activities were the doughnut sales, they had one once a month. This year the Student Christian Peace Movement, under the Y. W., has initiated a discussion group with Miss Wood. This group met weekly to tall: over current events and problems informally, and has become a particularly successful group. Edith Lerrigo, of the Boston ofiice, was honored at a tea February 15, in the Robie reception room. Among the programs of the year, Miss Eames has shown colored movies: "Sandy" fAllister Grantj has come out from Portland to play. Miss Murley talked on Alaska: Mr. Dubbs, on Old Books, and Miss Frost read poetry. The regular activities of the Y. W. included selling candy and Christmas cards.

The clubls aims are first to work for the welfare of the commuters irrespective of their membership to the club itself and second to provide a nucleus for social activities around which the Commuters, build their program. Next year the club hopes to build a cafe- teria on the third floor and with this purpose in view they have applied themselves whole- heartedly to the pie sales and weekly ice cream Page Seventy-seven sales.

Mr. Packard expresses his hopes for an excellent team next year. With all of the fine material that will he available, we're sure it will he a team to watch. CHARGE OF THE WHITE BRIGADE Page Eighty-three BASKETBALL Gorham opened the 1940 season with a fast home game against Rhode Island, taking the floor before a large opening day crowd, in the role of defending State champions, boasting five lettermen plus seven squad men. This opening game against Rhode Island turned out to be one of the best of the season despite the fact that our boys dropped the contest by the small margin of four points against this tall, rugged, veteran quintet. Ray Austin, joe Castellucci and some of the reserves gave our Gorham fans promise of an exciting season. The following week found our boys on the road for their annual game at Salem plus a return engagement at Rhode Island. The Salem game proved a jinx because Gorham not only lost a heartbreaking decision by one point after leading all of the game, but also lost their mainstay for the rest of the season as Ray Austin went out of the game in the last twenty seconds with a chipped bone in his elbow. This defeat and unfortunate incident was climaxed by a second defeat at Rhode Island as the RICE boys went on a scoring spree in the last half to change what had originally loomed as a close game into a one- sided contest with our boys getting the worst of it. After a week of hard practice periods in the gym during which time Coach Jensen sought to fill the vacancy made by Austin, the Gorham team won their first victory of the season over Keene Normal School by a large margin. Despite this victory Gorham felt the lack of reserve strength and in the next game against the friendly, but rival, Farmington team, they were drubbed unmercifully in another second half decision as Gorham wilted under the pace. Farmington displayed scoring power, height, and smooth working quintet which was strong enough to keep Gorham from even getting started. Third ROW-Manager G. Parritt, Asst. Coach C. Gilley, G.

BASKETBALL SQUAD Page Eighty-four New Britain, Conference champions six times, were the next quintet to defeat Gorham, but the old fighting spirit of the Green and White was still there, and before the game had finished our loyal fans had witnessed the best exhibition of basketball this season. Charl- ton set the pace, and the game was a toss-up from the start, with both teams providing their share of thrills. From here on the inspired Gorham quintet were hard to stop. They prepped for their game with Madawaska, and though the up-state team took over Farming- ton on their way down to Gorham, the Jensen- coached quintet was undaunted and much to the amazement of all started the second team known as the "Shock troopsv against Mada- waska. These boys were relieved by the stream- line first team, and the game ended in a vic- tory by two points for Gorham. This exciting victory was soon followed by another over Salem in their return game. These two wins raised the Gorham hopes for another season. Weakness on the foul line cost the Gorham team their game to Hyannis and though this defeat again blemished the season's record our school turned out strong for the Farmington trip where the last scheduled game of the season saw our boys lose again to their arch rivals. As a fitting tribute to a fine athlete, and as a fitting climax to what started as a poor season, the Gorham basketeers won a smashing victory over Northeastern Business College in a post season benefit game at Gorham, the proceeds of which went to defray hospital expenses of the injured Ray Austin. Considering the season as a whole it was far from discouraging though our standing in the Conference was a bit more disappointing than in past years. It is consoling to know that next year,s squad will include all the lettermen in addition to junior varsity veterans, and fresh- Page Eighty-fve STRUGGLE WITH FARMINGTON men neophytes.

This victory was only an indication of the great interest shown in the game. One of the largest squads of veterans and a host of new- comers led the team to a good season of 6 wins and 4 losses-two of these by teeth-slcin- ning margins. The pitching staff consisted of Red Austin, Wayne Bowie, Sheldon Porter and on occa- sions Tony Peccoraro who also played the in- field along with Joe Castellucci, Capt.

Beside the regular after school hilces, the Outing Club has been active in many other ways. Its mem- bers have enjoyed theatre parties, and the Club has sponsored a Christmas dance. It has or- ganized and directed the Winter Carnival, at which time Mary Read was elected carnival queen, and Constance Cullinan, Geraldine White, Marjorie Howland, and Elizabeth Leach were her attendants. The award for snow sculpture went to the Art Club. Members: F. Andrews, D. Armstrong, A. Barstow, C. Bearce,, P. Bent, M. Burnell, C. Campbell, F. Coombs, Clark, E. Corliss, B. Crowley, P.

Cullinan, G. White, M. Read, M. Howland, B. Leach Page Ei ghty-:even TQZIP g9.Wt..,,... HOCKEY Hockey is the first fall sport, and every Tuesday and Thursday during the season there is a rush from the gym to the field so that not a moment of play time may be lost. GREEN AND WHITE teams were chosen, and the games re- sulted in a victory of the Greens by the close score of 5-4. This year the Hockey trophy was awarded to the class of 1942, and the season closed with the Green team having won seven games and lost two. BADMINTON Badminton is a favorite indoor sportrduring the winter months, and the rush of students to the gym during the noon hour is a proof of its popularity. It's a lot of fun and excite- ment, too, for there,s plenty of rivalry. The sounds of cheering from the onlookers and the swish of racquets never stop during that hour, and birdies go over the net with feathers fiying. There is always a long waiting line for the courts, for badminton is the sport of many students. George Albert ably assisted the fans by directing special classes on Mondays and Wednesdays and the annual singles and doubles tournament climaxed the season. Among the chief racquet swingers are Phyl- lis Hodson, Josephine Irving, Ruth Patch, Bar- bara Doherty, Beverly Lunt, Phyllis Wfambolt, Pearl Libby, Catherine O'Donnell, Sally O'Toole, Mary McGinty, Lynedon Eaton, Robert Vaughan, Alfred Cereste, and Russell Martin. SOFTBALL Softball is another of the sports sponsored by the Women's Athletic department, and one which is the special favorite of the Sopho- more gymnasium classes. There is plenty of activity on the held when softball starts-balls, bats, and mits are hustled out of the little white storehouse, plates are put into place, the captains at the ends of the field give last in- structions to their teams-the whistle, then hits, catching, balls over' the plate and a homer -and before we can believe it, the hour is gone, equipment is stored away, and we're all back to the gym for showers, and the fun is over for another day. The trophy this year, was awarded to the class of 1940. Players are E. West, C. Henry, E. Hadley, M. Smart, R. Bishop, I. Hamblen, A. Dale, P. London, B. Moulton, Farwell, D. Meserve, J. Brown, B. Allen, R. Davis, B. Leach, M. Storer, Ashby, A. Barstow, and C. Lewis. VOLLEYBALL HOCKEY STARS Page Eighty-eight BASKETBALL At 3:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays the basketball enthusiasts rush over to the gym, don their colored gym suits, white blouses, and sneakers. Ar 3:45 these players from all three classes are busy at play. Substitutes may be seen on the sidelines waiting to make a basket or two. Basketballs are everywhere. Whistles scream. Score keepers are busy at the table. The timekeeper has her eyes on the watch. The play is intramural competition. The third year class won the cup this year. They didn't taste defeat once. I Class teams are composed of the best players of each division. The various classes play each other and alternate until the team which wins the most games is declared winner. The Green and White teams are composed of players of all divisions. This year the Green team was victorious, the captain being Mildred Doak. The third year class captained by Ida Hamblen won the trophy this year. Those on the winning team were M. Buck, C. Furbush, R. Edwards, H. Brown, M. Conwell and E. Ward. SQCCER Soccer is played by the freshman and sopho- more classes in the fall, and is a sport entered into with enthusiasm by them. From the moment the girls start running to the field to 'A the return to the gym and showers, the scene is an exciting and active one. Supplies are rushed out of the little storehouse, leaders are chosen, colored pinnies distinguish the teams, and the game is on. Goal keepers are quick and alert, the centers kick and rush, substitu- tions are made in a flash, and almost before we know it, the whistle blows, and the games are over.
