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
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
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.

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
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.
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
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-
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."

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-
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

TO TI-IE STUDENTS OF TI-IE
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
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.

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
And what about the satisfaction? A feeling
of growing power, of work well done, of
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
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
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.
This activity covered about four weeks. A
Part of every afternoon was set aside for its
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

General purpose is to preserve law and
order in and to guide dormitory life. 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.

The Menls Glee Club started the year by
welcoming new members and warming up on
some of the old tunes. 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 Women's Glee Club, under the direc-
tion of Miss Andrews, who knows good music,
ways of getting good results, and means of
spreading enthusiasm and cheer, is that digni-
fied group of fifty-Hve young women in black
dresses and white collars, who give pleasure by
their singing on so many occasions. There is
never a dull moment in the lives of the Glee
Club members. This year they have sung for
Superintendent's Day, made a joyous carol-
singing tour at the Christmas season, broad-
cast a delightful program over WCSH, pro-
duced in March a formal concert in which a
guest artist, Miss Marcia Merrill, added to
the enjoyment of their own finished work, and
have worked hours upon end to produce the
operetta "Briar Rose" for commencement time.
These accomplishments form only a part of
their successful year's work. The members also
enjoy to the fullest many good parties and
picnics, and altogether, life is a richer, more
joyous thing because of our Women's Glee

A group of our better known modern poets
has been the subject for the regular meetings
of the Poetry Club this year. 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
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. They are the Fall Stunt Party, an
Outing at Long Island, the Christmas Tea, the
Saint Valentine's Tea, the Saint Patrick's Day
Party, the Mothers' Day Assembly and the
Spring Initiation Picnic at Little Sebago Lake.

Have we accomplished our purpose and plan
of portraying the process by which Gorham

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

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-

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-
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.

Christian Peace Movement, under the Y. W.,

current events and problems informally, and has
become a particularly successful group. Edith

Freshman Murphy, acting upon doctor's
orders confined his efforts to the two mile
course and consequently to the junior Varsity.
He was outstanding in all of the meets.
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
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
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

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
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-

With the snow still on the ground, baseball
was ushered into G. N. S. last spring.
No sooner did the boys get out-of-doors
than they tuned up by slashing the Portland
Junior College outfit, 15-2.
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-

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 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
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
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.
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.
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
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
