They are of various sizes, the markings are different, unique, and distinctive. That you know. The shoes we choose make the difference. The shoes we choose to wear at work and play are important because they definitely express the kind of people we are and the positions we hold in life. They reveal our ideals, careers, achievements, and failures. They show something of our per- sonalities. Look at any manis shoes and you will know something of the man. Sherlock Holmes, no doubt, could read our footprints and write a biography of each of us. The shoes we choose may not always reveal our original hopes and dreams or the person we aspired to be, because circumstances sometimes prevent the realization of dreams. Millions of people may wear one kind of shoe even though they prefer another style and leather. There are many reasons why people are not able to choose their own professions, and thus they cannot be blamed for their choices. Perhaps at choosing time their choices were faulty or perhaps they did not persevere to achieve their dreams. Failure in perseverance would certainly lay the responsibility upon the chooser. But truly, we can say that the shoes we wear do indicate our positions in life, our wealth, our health, or our personalities. Our shoes leave their distinct markings upon the sands. Seniors, briefly, I leave you this chal- lenge. lf shoes mark the man, choose your shoes well. Take time in the choosing. Give the matter serious thought. Seek advice. Be careful that the shoes are suitable for your journey and that they will help you realize your dreams of happiness and success.

I would know their footprints anywhere-in Africa or Kalamazoo. And these tracks were made by shoes worn in service and useful activities. They come from the high school and lead out in the world. From the markings here l note they have spent much time in giving, not in receiving. Worn down at the heel, halfsoled-shows how busy they were. These seniors walked firmly, showing they knew where they were going. Say, folks, finding these brings back memories to me. I am reminded of the good old times we had as students of this high school. lill just have to tell you about our days here. Oh, we had the time of our lives-wish you had been here too. 9 FHESHMAN YEAR The first year of high school was a glorious one because it marked the great change from grammar school. There were 39 of us, all told, and we came from several different schools. That made it quite jolly and interesting as it gave us a chance to get acquainted with more boys and girls. We selected Barbara Peltier as class presi- dent, Dale Laughlin, as vice-president, Nancy Manley, as secretary, Norma Duffy, as treasurer, and Burton Wells and Tracy Ryan for our stu- dent council. Miss Holden was our class spon- sor. As all freshmen have to be initiated, we also had to make the sacrifice. On September 12, we were initiated by the sophomores. We were not too kindly treated by them but that night a reception, held in our honor, soon made us for- get our afternoon's difficulties. Dancing and re- freshments were enjoyed. We all felt more a part of the school after our initiation. mu L zkfo ry umummnmmm ammun-nmnmmuummmnmmn iniiuminiiiiiiiimmnnuuummiI1In11vvvu11a14nuunnnmunnmimniiIiIIiiiIIIiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIIIiiiiIII1in1unimvmwnnnm ln October we participated in the Hallowel- en Carnival. We had several booths and much fun. Nearly everyone in the class took part in the annual Minstrel Show either in the Clee Club chorus or a part in the show. In january there vias a sleigh ride for the whole high school, each class having its own sleigh. After the rides, re- freshments and dancing were enjoyed by all. Our class presented "Our Famous Ancestorsn in the one-act play contest. Those taking part were: Elaine Limoge, George VVhite, Norma Duffy, Burton Wells and Nancy Manley. Miss Day directed us and we won the trophy which had been donated by the class of '47, VVe didnit make much history our first vear as we were all too busy watching the clock.'But we had the time of our lives just being green and newish. 9 SOPHOMORE YEAR Our second year of High School we were more familiar with the task which lay ahead of us. The first day of school was a reunion with teachers and friends. The second day found us working in full force toward the goal we have now achieved. Class officers this year were president, Thel- ma Preston, vice-president, Shirley Hazen, Sec- retary, Nancy Manley, Treasurer, Ernest Dubu- que and student council members were Evelyn V arney and Dale Laughlin. As the days passed by, our first big event was freshman initiation, which gave us our CllZlIlCC to retaliate but we gave the freshmen a warm reception that night. Each class took charge of the booths at the "Fallowe'en Carnival. The Sophomore class had two, one was the baseball throw and the other the Tunnel of Thrills. XVe ended the nightis entertainment with a movie called "The Phan- tom of the Operaf, 1' Q 4 Blue and Gold Several members of our class took part when the band played at the Armistice Day Parade, and after the parade enjoyed a free turkey din- ner. The band also played Memorial Day for the Legion Parade. Since we didnit have any Minstrel Show that year, we started basketball practice very early. 'he girls, team had a very successful year. The girls from our class who played were Barbara Gonyeau, Barbara Sheperd, Barbara Peltier, Norma Duffy and Elaine Limoge, The boys, team carried twelve men and won twenty games out of twenty-seven enough to get into the "CU tournament played at Burlington, Our members who played were George White, Burton Wells, Dale Laughlin, Bernard Roque, Tracy Ryan and Henry Blow. That year there were six cheer- leaders and only one represented our class, Janet Fisher. About the middle of April baseball was well under way. The last of the month we played our first game defeating St. Anneis. We battled our way to a successful season. The members of our class who went out for baseball were George White, Frank Tourville, David Sweeney, and Tracy Ryan. On the afternoon of Memorial Day we played a double header. The first which was with the alumni, we lost 4-3. The second with Fairfax, we won 7-6. 9 JUNIOR YEAR In September of 1949 the class of ,51 once again gathered with old and new students to be- gin a new chapter in our lives. That year study hall was known as our home room, with Mr. Morris taking charge. He was also our class sponsor. Time for the choosing of class officers came. Barbara Gonyeau was elected president, Ernest Dubuque, vice-president, Barbara Shep- ard, secretary, and Burton VVells, treasurer. Members on student council were Janet Fisher and Dale Laughlin. We received our class rings on September 8. We were then in the best of spirits. First came the Minstrel Show with practically everyone taking part. VVe repeated the show at North Hero Community Hall a week later with another capacity audience. Then came the Operetta with Virginia Adams, Evelyn Varney, Elaine Limoge, Janet Fisher, Carol Vantine, Claire Roussin, Burton Wells, George White, Frank Tourville, Ernest Dubuque, and Bernard Roque taking part in the cast while the others were in the Glee Club Chorus. In March for the one-act play contest we pre- sented "The Bishop's Candlesticks" with Carol Vantine, Nancy Manley, David Blatt, Bernard Roque, Frank Tourville, Yates Rousseau, and David Sweeney participating. We won first prize. Basketball season opened with a great num- ber of new players. Those who made the boys, team were Bernard Roque, Burton Wells, George White, Dale Laughlin, Henry Blow, and Tracy Ryan. Those who made the girls' team were Barbara Gonyeau, Barbara Peltier, Barbara Shepard, Elaine Limoge, Norma Duffy, and Ruth Villemaire. Cheerleaders were Janet Fisher, David Blatt and Yates Rousseau. In late April we organized a girls' softball team. Ann Spears was chosen to be our captain. Others taking part were Norma Duffy, Janet Fisher, Joan Granger, Madelaine LeClaire, Betty Scribner, Barbara Shepard and Ruth Villemaire. In May we decorated the gym for our Junior Prom in a Dutch Holiday fashion. Again in May our class was well represented at the Music Festival. Taking part in All State Chorus was Janet Fisher and in the All State Band were Nancy Manley, Barbara Shepard and George White. Ruth V illemaire played the Graduation Processional and Recessional. George White was chosen as Class Marshal. Barbara Gonyeau was chosen to attend Girls, State at Montpelier last June and David Sweeney and Burton Wells to attend Boys' State at North- field. 4-P SENIOR YEAR But time, that thief, stole our eleventh year in school, and at last we became Seniors. Folks, have you ever been a Senior in high school? You say you have? Well, then I know you will enjoy hearing about the times we had. Good times were had by all, studying, taking part in sports, and carrying on our other activities. We elected the following officers to S6l'V6 us. Burton Wells was our president, David Blatt was our vice- president. We then voted for Ernest Dubuque Blue and Gold 5 as secretary and Ruth V illemaire was our treasu- rer. Our two student council members were George White and Bernard Roque. The student council then elected George as president. Miss Holden was our home room teacher in our 12th year. That year we also had Doris Jackson join us. One of our means for earning money for our class trip was to sell magazines. Out of our sale of 35935.20 we made a profit of 832672. One of our annual events was the Minstrel Show in which most of the Seniors participated. Dancing chorus was composed of eight Senior girls who were Norma Duffy, Claire Roussin, Janet Fisher, Virginia Adams, Barbara Peltier, Nancy Manley, Carol Vantine, and Barbara Shepard. Four of our Senior boys David Blatt, Burton Wells, Ernest Dubuque, and George White were endmen while Bernard Roque acted as Interlocutor. During the intermission the chorus girls went among the audience selling fudge and made 3510.00 toward our class trip. At the Halloweien Carnival we had two booths. In one we had a Paddle Wheel and in the other we had a Baseball Throw. We all had our turns in working in either one booth or the other. On November 17th the high school presented four one-act plays. The seniors put on a play called "High Windowv. Those in the cast were Dorothy Dubuque, Carol Vantine, Joan Granger, David Blatt and Ernest Dubuque. This play won high honors but the class of '54 had the plaque presented to them. The Christmas Pageant was presented on two nights, the evenings of the 21st and 22nd of December. The Glee Club proceeded in with a candlelight ceremony from the back of the Au- ditorium. They sang the Seraphic Song which is sung every Easter time at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Ten boys "Walked for the Kakeii that year. This was the first time Milton High had such an event. The Seniors who "Kake VValked,' were George VVhite, David Blatt, Yates Rousseau, Burton Wells, David Sweeney, and Bernard Roque. The gym classes, both boys and girls, gave a very nice tumbling act. David Blatt was the only senior who took part in that act. Under the direction of Miss Holden the Senior Class three act play, "June Madf, went off suc- cessfully on March 16th. The Seniors who par- ticipated were Carol Vantine, Betty -Scribner, Norma Duffy, Janet Fisher, Nancy Manley, Vir- ginia Adams, Tracy Ryan, Burton VVells, George White, Dale Laughlin, Frank Tourville, Wayne Steady, and David Blatt. After much planning and waiting March 24th finally arrived. This was one of the biggest days in our four years of high school. Most of us were up bright and early that morning, as that was the morning we left for New York City. The Vermont Transit bus met us at school at 5:30 A. M. Soon we were on our way, 28 seniors, Mr. and Mrs. Patton, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Mayville, Miss Swindell, Miss Kellogg and two juniors, Wayne Lafayette and Jerome Limoge. We stop- ped in Glens Falls for breakfast and Reinbeck for dinner. WVe stopped at Hyde Park for an hour after dinner and visited the late President Roosevelt's home, museum, and library. We ar- rived at the Hotel Piccadilly at 4:25 P. M. We were assigned to our rooms and then we went to a broadcast that night. Easter Sunday we went to Church. Some of us went to Riverside Drive and others to St. Patrick's Cathedral. That after- noon we had a tour of Rockefeller Center includ- ing a trip to the Observation Tower. Then in the evening we went back to Radio City Music Hall saw a magnificent stage show and heard the Seraphic song which we had sung at the Christ- mas Pageant. Monday morning we had a Down- Town tour of the Bowery and Chinatown. In the afternoon we went for a boat trip around Manhattan Island. In the evening we enjoyed a play called "Happy Timev. After the play we were entertained with a dinner and floor show at Wivel's Restaurant. Tuesday morning wc -.vent to the Empire State building and shopped through Macyis. At 2:00 that afternoon we left for home, a tired but happy group. of students. We chose blue and gold for our class colors, and the yellow rose for our flower. Note how it grows on our garden wall. The Senior Ball was held May 30th. This was the last big event of the year before Gradua- tion.

We have truly left our "Footprints on the Sands of Timev, but we know well that no other class can hope to step exactly into those amazing tracks. Some of you may be pondering mentally just why no one can do it, but you are all wrong in your conclusions. It is not because the tracks are too big, it is not because they are perfectly plain to the naked eye, it is not because they are crooked and straggling, and it is not because they wander aside into paths. How our hearts swell with pride when we consider the real reason. Do I need to put it in words? Is it not sufficient for you to gaze in soulful admiration upon this extraordinary class of 1951. Is it not written upon our extraodinary faces, all over our brachycephalic heads and even in our graceful and commanding poses. Let us now bring our minds to gaze on "Foot- prints on the Sands of Timev, in the year of 1961. I am a member of the F. B. I. Do you know what that means? You don,t know ? VVell, it means FOOT- PRINTS BEING INVESTIGATED. Here on these sands are deep impressions of footprints. The seniors of 1951 have passed this way. They have been making tracks, important tracks in the last ten years. Their impressions are traced on the sands and cannot be erased. They show that the seniors walked here with an upward look and a firm tread-going places. They are unwaver- ing and true. They point toward progress and achievement. They lead to the right places, the true goals of accomplishment in all the fields of activities. You know, I can tell something about cach senior by the tracks he makes. Each ex- presses the individual and his achievement and what he is doing today. I see this in their foot- nunnuunnmmnmnnnnummmunuun mmnanuIuuu1uunu1uunununnnnIInnnnnnunnnunnnnnnnnmnnunnnnIunnnnnnI1InummIIInnIInummmmnmnn.- 5 mnnmuunnnunnnn1unumunnmmm nnuuIIsuInnnnnuuunnununnnnnnnuIanInn1InvnnnnunnuIImmsu1nnunnnnnnnnnIannumuuIuuuInuu1numunnnummf prints. They are all successful, MAKING TRACKS. First we start with the footprints of our class president. Burton Wells-Burtie enjoyed New York so much when he was there that he returned four years later and bought a business around the cor- ner from Hotel Piccadilly. If you should ever go to New York, stop at the Opera Inn where you will obtain immediate service. Next we see Yates Rousseaufs footprints in the sand. Following in his brothers footsteps Yates joined the Air Force. He now is mechanic of his brotherjs plane repair shop and is stationed in Washington, D. C., where "Dollyv is close at hand. Whose prints do we have here? They look like a nurse,s print. Oh yes, they are Claire Roussinls. As a nurse, graduated from the Fanny Allen Hospital, Claire has done well. She joined the Air Force, and after her discharge she return- ed and is now Supervisor of nurses at the Fanny Allen. Betty Scribner-Betty attended johnson Teachers, College immediately after school. Af- ter completing her studies, she became a teach- er in King High School where Willie Morris is Principal. Doris Jackson-Doris graduated from nurses, training at Dr. Mann's Hospital.

Carol Vantine-Having received high honors from Columbia University, Carol is on her way to becoming famous in the scientific world.

After completing the course he took a position in California. He now is back East Where he owns his own restaurant, which has the advertisement slogan, "Stop in here to take a rest. Weill serve you nothing but the bestfi Ann Spears-After leaving school Ann at- tended Boston Beauty College, where she re- ceived high honors. She has now set up her own beauty salon in the village of Grand Isle, which has a slogan, "If your Harris-Hazy, Come to Annieis Beauty Salonf, David Sweeney-David is the one who really made good in our class, for he struck upon the bright idea of inventing what he could have used in high school, an atomic-operated type- writer which doesnit make mistakes. Dorothy Dubuque-Upon graduating from High School, Dorothy was undecided whether she would be a teacher or bookkeeper. Her mind was made up for her, for she now has a full time job in the Beaupre Production Co. Frank Toaruille-Since he had been a farmer in his earlier years, Frank entered U. V. M. where he took up Agricultural Engineering. He now has a full time job keeping the Island Farms in condition. Barbara Gonyeau-It wasnit hard for Barb, since she had such a knack for office work, to obtain a good position in the General Electric Plant in Burlington. But she found her work much more exciting when, within a few years, Paul Bobar took a desk next to hers. George l'Vhite-VVe hear that George could not settle down in any one college so attended four different ones. Finally he graduated from the University of Maine. He is now basketball Coach at U. V. M. Nancy Manley-VVe received word that Nancy attended Burlington Business College. She didn't work very long for she soon married a U. V. M. graduate and is keeping up his books on their farm in Grand Isle. Maflelaine LeClaire-N'Iadelaine attended Wilfred Beauty Academy in Boston. From there she went to Florida where she obtained a good position. Now she has a husband and children who have curly hair. Maybe it's natural! Bernita M artin-After graduation, Bernita entered Burlington Business College, but her Mother decided she needed help in the store, so Bernita went only a few months to College. After about six months in the store Bernita got tired of working, so she married a young farmer and moved to South Hero. We now End her caring for twin boys and trying to do her house- work at the same time. Laurette Boussin-Laurette did almost the same as Claire, as both graduated from the Fanny Allen Hospital. But Laurette decided to make her future a little different from Claireis. She is now married to Maynard, lives in Swan- ton, and is doing part-time nursing. Barbara Shepard-Graduating from High School, Barbara decided to follow in her sisters, footsteps and take up nursing at the Mary Flet- cher Hospital in Burlington. Her studies there helped her in caring for her children for they often become ill while following their father from port to port. While following her husband, who was in the army, from port to port, Barb took odd jobs here and there nursing. Wayne Steady-Wayne always had the skill for doing hair. Therefore he went to a Beauty Culture School in New York. He now is Chief Make-Up and Hair Artist for a large Broadway Production in New York City. David Blatt-He always had a hand for making small children behave, so David attend- ed U. V. M. for training to be an elementary teacher. He now has a job of Principal and teacher in Blatt's Elementary School. Bernard Roqua-Being a lawyer was easy for Bernard. He attended St. Michael's College in VVinooski and then went to Harvard Law School. Having set up his office, he is making an attempt to settle the Case of Smith vs Iones. Norma Duffy-Poor Normal She just couldnpt hold back a giggle, therefore she lost her job as secretary, for the boss always thought she was laughing at him. She finally gave up and mar- ried Doug. They are now settled on a farm in 8 Blue and Gold Milton. Milton High School hasn't lost Normais giggle, for if you look in the grades you will soon see that her giggle must have been inherited. Dale Laughlin-After three years in the Ma- rines, Dale took over a farm in Milton so as to support his wife and children. Since Dale al- ways loved children, he now has five. Ruth Villemaire-Ruth was the second dieti- tion in our class. She received her dietetics course at U. V. M. For her future career she de- cided to work in a largeschool in New York. She must have liked this future for we still find her here. Tracy Ryan--The bravest of our class- Tracy, was called by Uncle Sam. We hear now that he has taken the Footsteps of many famous Generals. He now is Supreme Commander in Russia. janet Fisher-She planned to go to Becker junior College, but one of her many boyfriends stepped in and spoiled her plans. If you're ever down to Rockefeller Center, stop in and visit her, and she Will show you the place for she is a guide there. Nancy Barrows+Soon after we graduated, Nancy, who had taken a very active interest in a certain Marine, married him. Their time is tak- en up almost entirely by their big family-of some three thousand chincilla rabbits. Ginny Adams-After graduation Ginny went to Sheldonis Beauty Academy for a year. She worked at Wilfredis Beauty Shop for three years then she married one of her high school friends. She has two children and she is now living on the U. V, M. Campus Lot. As I told you in the beginning, I am with the F. B. I. FOOTPRINTS BEING INVESTI- GATED. But just now I feel like a heel investi- gating and telling you all about the private and professional lives of the senior class of 1951. So if you'll excuse me now, I'll be making tracks away from here.

Our high school days are of the past. It's time to leave this dear old school, so it's time to read our Last Will and Testament and distribute our gifts to the class. During our stay here, we collected many material and in- tangible possessions which we cannot take with us. We would grow footsore on our march if we were weighted with too many earthly posses- sions. They would be a burden as We tread the sands of time. We think it wise to dispose of our possessions to those who will follow in our foot- steps, namely, the juniors and other school fel- lows. Also, there are certain concessions which we make to the school and faculty. Therefore, we make this Last Will and Testament: We, the class of 1951, of Milton High School, realizing we are setting out on the sands to make our footprints indelible and to set examples for future generations, do hereby, will and bequeath the following: FIRST: We order and direct that all just debts be paid, namely the expenses of com- mencement which have been deep impressions on our pocketbooks and mental capacities. SECOND: To our school, we leave Father Time with hopes that he will continue to make notable history after we have gone. Blue and Gold 9 THIRD: To the principal and teachers, we leave our promptess and wasted time with hopes that they may distribute them among those they teach in the future. VVe also convey our ability to know a good thing when we see it. As this ability has been largely created by their instruc- tions, we are merely returning to them their own invaluable gift. FOURTH: To the rising Seniors we leave our shoes of righteousness, our high grades, and our good times. WVe also bestow on them all our laughs and giggles, unsolved puzzles, tardy and absent marks, all the unchewed gtllli, apple cores and cold lunches, all the volley, basket and base- ball scores, all the broken jack-knives and un- sharpened lead pencils, half-filled note books and all other unclaimed properties of no value whatever. FIFTH: To the rising Juniors, we leave our timely sayings and quips, and our good disposi- tions. SilXTH: To the rising Sophomores, we will our right to go barefooted and our clever tongues -minus shoes. SEVENTH: To the janitor, we will and be- queath the undisputed possession of our indivi- dual desks and bottles of ink to be at his disposal forever. EIGHTH: Our understanding and compre- hension of Ancient, English and American his- tory we consign to no-one, but leave it in the air, to be confiscated by whosoever deserves it. We also make the following individual be- queaths: To Claire Therrien and Phyllis Everest, the quiet ones in the Junior class, we will and be- queath Norma and Nancy's ability to giggle. To Roger Giffin, we will and bequeath Bur- ton Well's ability to act up in class. To Harold Blair, we will and bequeath Miss Holdenls rubber heels so that he Wonlt disturb others when he walks down the hall. ' To janet Granger, we will and bequeath some will power to carry out all the tasks that she un- dertakes. To Jerome Limoge, we will and bequeath the right to visit a certain house on River Street at any time after dark. To Ecltlie Grout, we will and bequeath the right to go to a garage and get all the used oil for his car.

To lVayrie Lafayette, we will and bequeath a picture of janet and also one of Norma, so that you may be able to make up your mind during the summer. To june Ann Baker, we will and bequeath the right not to miss school on account of sick- ness while workin f at the doctoris home. E To jack Fienemarm, we will and bequeath Burton Wellis seat at Miss Stanleyis desk. Be sure to keep out of her desk drawers. To Dawn Holcombe, we will and bequeath a prescription to get some tablets to quiet your laughter. How about trying sleeping tablets! To Harold Legacy, we will and bequeath the right to keep your trousers out of trees on Hal- lowe'en. To Carol Martel, we will and bequeath the right to hitch-hike across the country to see what the army is doing out in VVashington.

And now, letls open up the shoe box. I have here the Shoe Box, number 29. A very good size shoe, you must admit. You see we have as a class a large foundation, solid, substan- tial, so we are bound to make big impressions. This box holds some our possessions which we have accumulated, and now I want to give them to the individuals who own them. Mr. Patton, we give you this horse whip to use after we are gone!

Man Recovers ldentity! Amnesia Victim Returns to Arms of Familylv Red and black headlines scream forth the glad tidings, and readers throughout a commu- nity let out a sigh of relief. For, of all the mala- dies that can befall mankind, none is more shock- ing to the victim than sudden loss of memory. VVithout a past and robbed of identity, he is the epitome of despair. I can think of no more dramatic illustration of the vital part that a knowledge of the past plays in our daily lives. VVithout it, we are as a new-born babe dependent upon instinct, with no experience on which to base sound iudgment, no understanding of cause or effect, no fact on which to guide our future. In this light, history is not a by-product of civilization. It is a sixth sense without which we cannot function! Ralph VValdo Emerson has declared that 'fthe use of history is to give value to the present hour and its dutyf and pithier words were never phrased. Noah Wfebster, or one of the heirs to his magic with a dictionary, defines history as "a narrative of eventsv and, armed with this defini- tion, we come to see that all of us are alternately reading and writing history every day of our lives. Today we are again defending our freedom extends across our land on a battlefield that "from sea to shining seafp lt reaches to every doorstep where communist propaganda in all its insidious forms and under the most artful dis- guises is seeking to destroy our freedom by un- dermining our faith in the principles on which our government was founded. How grave is the danger of this all-out attack against us is best told in the words of Bernard Baruch. bersonal adviser to our presidents through six administra- tions: "If we lose, we lose foreverf, KVe can best combat this attempt to destroy our freedom by gaining from our American his- tory a clear understanding of the principles on which our government was founded, by learn- ing of the long struggle, the privations and hard- ships that had to be endured before those prin- ciples could be established. Then we will have a true appreciation of the freedom we enioy, and we will be of a firm mind to defend it. And only the staunchest firmness will match the fanatical determination of the plotters who seek to under- mine us. So let us turn to the history of the United States as the effective antidote for the poison of communist propaganda. And while we are about it, letis read again the Declaration of In- dependence and the Constitution of the United States to remind ourselves that "All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happinessf, Letps not wait until our apprecia- tion of these inalienable rights is tempered by the despair of losing them. Letis bear in mind that once again Uthese are the times that try menis soulsf, and that the enemy who would des- troy those rights is one who denies the very exis- tence of the soul. Thomas Paine's prophetic words should be written today across the blackboards of every schoolroom in our country. Then we need not fear that these propaganda attacks will ever sub- ject us to the humiliation of having our speech dictated by the group of ruthless political plot- ters whose sole aim is power for themselves and slavery for the rest of the world. So it is that the events of yesterday and today will guide to- morrow. Therefore we need a knowledge not only of the past but we need to give our best to today. VVe are drawn together here tonight to say "farewell,'. And, departing, leave behind us. footprints in the sands of time. 14 Blue and Gold 'mm' nmuumumunmn mnmunuum unmnl nmnmuuuuuuuu nmnunnunn umumuu I mnnmmnnn uumnmummnnnnu mumnunummu nunumnunumunun- mm nnnunmnnn Szzlumiofjf E, THE graduating class of 1951, welcome you here tonight to our Commencement exer- cises. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to our parents who have undergone various sacrifices to start us on the road to success. We wish to thank our teachers for the patience and encouragement they have given us. We wish to thank the School Board for providing us with a varied program of studies. Last of all, we thank our friends who have been good in helping all of us to complete our twelve years of school. As we leave this school tonight we become a part of the future of tomorrow. VVhat this future will be depends largely upon what we make it. As citizens of this country we will do our utmost toward making the best possible world. Now let us look back to our school and one important subject that we have studied-namely Sociology. People who have never been to school and also many of those who have been, never stop to realize that man is custodian of culture. This, from a sociological sense means, civiliza- tion or the man-made environment. We are influenced at all times by a culture environment which is made up of material and non-material traits. Many people never stop to think of its consistency. VV e have many culture traits which have been handed down to us from other generations and we just carry them on without the slightest idea of what they are and how they came about. A man tipping his hat, whenever he meets a woman, is a custom which is performed but many do not realize that it was once customary for a knight in armor to raise his visor when speaking to a lady, as an act of courtesy. Customs ought to be the outgrowth of intelligence and of the careful planning of what is best for society rather than the chance by-products of trial and error. Man alone is a culture-builder because he has four distinct physical advantages which help to accomplish this. He has an,upright position, free hands, a vocal apparatus, and an excellent ummm umnnmuummmnmumm 4unnIInInunnimnnnnvnnnnniunmu11nI1InnuIinni1IInin1nIiiI111InuImumnnmumnumm mumnnnunIinuInn11n111111nunnnI-uuIIInuimIIiInnnInn1iIIII111IvInIInnnnIIInInIunn1IIunn1nnnmmm1InnnInunnnnIInnn1IIunn1u111u1Iunmuummuunmunu mm . brain structure. With these advantages man is superior to animal. Every individual acquires a culture heritage as he grows up. Man profits through this as it improves. He brings all the past to bear upon his present, and will bring the present to bear upon his future. Each generation has the ad- vantages of what the previous generations learn- ed, because of the power which man has to teach his offspring the things that have been learned through trial and error. Children fall heir to the methods, to the tools, to the religious beliefs, and to the forms of social organization which have been developed. Man is so de- pendent upon his culture heritage that were it taken from him, he would be left almost as help- less as an infant. People of other races seem peculiar to us be- cause different surroundings make different human beings of us, as far as personality traits and behavior patterns are concerned. We often think of the Chinaman as being peculiar be- cause he uses chopsticks, without realizing that he thinks we are peculiar using knives and forks. The reason for this is that people fail to appre- ciate the background of those from other en- vironments. The culture environment in which one grows up is mastered naturally and without too much effort, but learning to live in a new environment is a more difficult problem. As time goes on, our culture changes, and we adopt new traits which spread rapidly in the United States. As these change, our personality must be adjusted also. It has no doubt become clear that man is first of all a social creature, depending for his very life and growth upon others. It is evident also, that he is dependent upon the culture ac- cumulated by societies past and present. As we leave this school tonight we will take over by doing our part in carrying on the culture traits and trying to make our world a better one in which to live.

Cabree GIRLS' SPORTS Our record this year was not too spectacular, but basketball is not all win and no lose. This year was just the lower part of the swing of the pendulumg and as such consisted ol' many hard fought but losing games. However, our girls' team enjoyed success in other ways besides Win- ning. The cooperation of the girls and the sports- manship was of the best quality. The 1950-51 season will be a pleasant memory to many of our future alumni, Some of the outstanding players of this yearis team were Barb Sheperd.

During noon hours this winter we had class grnies in which the Seniors carried off most of the victories with the Sophomores, juniors and Freshmen following in order. These games were enjoyed very much by all. There was no softball team this year due to so many other outside activities. and the girls wanted to attend the baseball games which would not be possible if we had to play the same days as the boys.

One of the numbers which the chorus did was Fred VVaring's arrangement of "The Battle Hymn of the Republief, The chorus presented a Christmas Pageant on Dec. 22 and This was something dif- ferent. lt was in candlelight and very beautiful. The opening number was the main feature. lt was "The Seraphic Song" which Mr. Patton got in New York. This song is sung every Easter at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Fol- lowing this the band played for the Kake YValkers. The number was "Cotton Babes" which is used at the U. V. Xl. Kake YValk's. Mr. Bevins did a good job of transcribing all music for each instrument from a sheet of piano music, that was obtained from U. V. M. This is not a published song. On March sixth the band played for Town Meeting. Together the band and glee club presenled a spring concert on April 27th. This helped to buy additional uniforms for the band. Five members were chosen to attend All- state chorus at the Music Festival. They were Bernita Martin. janet Fisher, Burton XVells. Ernest Dubuque and VVayne Lafayette.

In the study of drama, poetry, novel, essays and short stories the importance of character development is stressed. Oral and Written reports are an integral part of this course of study. English IV-English literature from Chaucer to the twentieth century is studied in detail. An attempt is made to give the student a concep- tion ot the changes in literature as the result of social. economic. and political changes in the lite of a people.

Clee Club, Band, Physical Education and Music Appreciation are offered to both girls and boys for which lla credit is received. Suhiects preceded by an Cui receive credit for college entrance. Those preceded by a dagger are essential to sound business training. No attempt is made to arbitrarily divide the curriculum into "Courses,' so-called, calling one the college preparatory course, another the com- mercial, or another by some other name. Ou the contrary, it is our purpose to leave the pupil as unhampered as possible. Certain subjects are required of all pupils. Aside from these, pupils are given wide free- dom of choice among studies called 'electiyesf All students who expect to enter college, how- ever, must make a selection from those electives which are preceded by an asterick CU except that for some colleges, courses in Latin are not required though it is highly desirable. Either two years of Latin or two years of French are essential. In cases where any doubt exists in the minds of parents or pupils as to subjects to be chosen, advice should be sought from the office. When- ever it becomes evident that a pupil has made a mistake in the choice of his studies, an at- tempt will be made to remedy the difficulty. 3:2 Blue and Gold MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT Algebra I-The aim of this course is to teach the language and the science of the simple equa- tion, to emphasize the importance of the equa- tion and its application through the solution of practical problems. Plane Geometry-The aims of this course are to teach the pupils to reason rather than to ac- cept statements as true without proof, to use geometric tools accurately in simple construc- toin and show their practical application. Algebra II-This isa review of elementary algebra plus a sufficient amount of advanced material to prepare the pupils for college. GENERAL MATHEMATICS The aims of this course are flj To present mathematics as a practical subject arising from the life situations of ordinary people, f2j To give an insight into mathematical principles necessary to understand our increasingly com- plicated environment, To provide an ex- ploratory course in mathematics. LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT Students who have a fairly good average in their English courses and who are planning on attending college should fulfill the usual require- ments of two fat leastj years of foreign lan- guage. The two year language requirement must be made up of two years of the same language. Latin I-lt is the purpose of this course to endow the student with the following: Clj The fundamentals of latin grammar to permit the student to continue Latin II, 12D A correspond- ing knowledge of English grammar, An ac- quaintance with derivatives and related Latin words, Q41 Sentence writing and translation of Latin, 155 The meaning of a word in its sur- rounding context, Q65 The historical and cul- tural material available in Latin I and UQ An acquaintance with mythological material. Latin II-The aims set up for the first year are continued and enlarged upon, with more intensified study. The studentis power to trans- late should become increased. There is con- tinued opportunity to become acquainted with the history of Rome. Caesar proper is not en- countered until late in the year and then in simplified form. French I--To as great a degree as possible, the beginning student in French will be de- veloped to understand the spoken word, to speak it, to read it, and to write it. For the most part the reading deals with modern French life. The course tends to break down the studentis shyness and self-reserve by having him read and speak French aloud. Occasionally dictation in French is given and corrected by the pupil that he may better comprehend his weaknesses. French II-A student should have a C aver- age to continue in French II. For the majority of the students this will be the extent of their French course. Consequently, the skills attain- ed during French I are incorporated into French II but more intensely. Besides a completion of French grammar, one or more interesting works are read. SCIENCE DEPARTMENT General S c r e n c e-The composition and changes in matter, control and use of fire and heat, cause and prevention of disease, food, our water supply, weather, harnessing or energy, use of machines, electricity, and light, methods of communication, and transportation, the heavens, the earth's surface, and plant life are topics generally studied. Biology-A course designed to give a more thorough systematic knowledge of the living things on this planet. Much emphasis is placed on the relationship between hitherto unfamiliar organisms and everyday routine of life. Physics-The course helps to develop the ability to observe facts accurately, to record in an orderly fashion the data obtained, to set up apparatus correctly and expeditiously, to make quantative measurements, which may be used to solve a physical problem and most of all, to make accurate computations and to state results in good English and in readable form. Chemistry-This science deals chiefly with the changes in the composition of matter, the practical application of chemistry to everyday life, human health, in the home, in industry, its contribution to society and the progress of civilization, its relation to plant and animal life, all are stressed. Mathematical solutions to chemical problems are required. Laboratory periods for student experimentation average two periods per week. Blue and Gold 33 NIILTON BASEBALL TEAM Standing: XV1-lls, Ryan, Lafayette, Sweeney, Jones Kneeling: Pigeon, Blow, Tourville, lloque, Horican, Laughlin, Boudreau, Blair, Coach Patton HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT Civics-This course deals with the meaning of American democracy, the major problems of our government, and the obligations of the citizens. Vocations-This course is given to help young people to understand the workers of the world and the kinds of work they do. lVhen the right time comes, the pupils will need to make their own choice of workg to de- cide how they are going to earn their living and how they are going to prepare for success in the calling they have chosen. Sociology and Prololems of Amcriczm De- n1ocrucy-Sociology concerns itself with prob- lems of modern social living and how these prob- lems are being solved by our democratic system of government. W'orlcI IIi.s'fory-Tlie course attempts to give rn understanding of how our present civilization developed from the past and what the different ages and peoples have c o n t r i b u t e d to the present.

SOCIAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Home Economics I and II-Home Economics l is required as a Freshman or Sophomore sub- ject. Home Economics II is elective to all upper classes. The State Course of Study is followed which states: Mlihe homemaking curriculum in the Ver- mont secondary school is based upon such im- mediate objectives and activities as will provide training to enable the student to QU benefit from opportunities for self-development which a course dealing with these personal and social problems can give formulate desirable ideals end standards in regard to personal living, home and family life. appreciate the worthwhile function of a home, fail learn the pleasures that can come from homely tasks well done for the 34 p Blue and Gold welfare of the family members or of the family as a whole, Q52 experience the challenge of homemaking responsibilities as is done through the home project, Q62 understand the contribu- tions of science, social science and art to solving the problems of personal living and of home and family lifef, 6-P COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT Shorthand I-Aims: to train students to read shorthand notes fluently and to transcribe them accurately, to develop habits which make for efficiency in taking dictation and to build up a vocabulary usable at the rate of about 80 words a minute. Bookkeeping-Aims: to teach the elementary principles of accounting and routine of book- keeping, and to develop an appreciation of busi- ness situations and problems, sole proprietorship and partnership. Typewriting I--The objective of the course is: mastery of the keyboard with the formation of correct habits and techniques which will en- able the students to type acurately at the rate of forty words per minute. The various letter forms are studied with special emphasis on at- tractive placement. This includes carbon copies and envelopes. Much time is devoted to person- al typing. Typewriting II-Objective: The ability to type accurately at the rate of 50 words per minute and set up attractively the following: manuscript typing, copying from rough draft, payroll, bills, invoices, statements, tabulations, and other business forms. Some time is spent in cutting stencils and instructions are given in the use of the duplication machine. lun-ior Business- Training-The objectives of this course are: to provide a background of eco- nomic education such as should precede any vocational training and to lay a firm foundation for the achievement of economic security. Ofice Practice-This course provides inten- sive pre-employment training.

Other pupils are admitted upon presen- tation of an officially signed statement of proof that equivalent work has been completed. Tuition-All students whose residence is out- side the School District are charged tuition of 35175 for year 1951-52. If a pupil lives in a Vermont town which does not maintain a high school, his home dis- trict is legally obligated to pay this fee. Marking System-The marking system is a standard one used by most high school. A Q92-100D excellent work, B Q85-92, very good work, C C77-85? good work, D Q70-77D poor work, F Cbelow 70D no re-examination given. Report cards are sent home six times each year for parents, examination. While the teachers and principal appreciate the prevailing good will and cooperation of the parents, the following suggestion may help in keeping our scholarship standing high: Good attendance is fundamentally necessary for a successful school. Satisfactory work in the high school requires regular home study on the part of the average student. Parents and other adults are welcome at the school at all times.
