One morning in September, 1949, a company
of young people, 43 of us in number, set out on
a long journey in search of a high school educa-
tion. This company came from all the lands
around, from Grand Isle, North Hero, South
Hero, Georgia, and Colchester, because they had
wanted to join this good company who had start-
ed out to obtain a high school education. Soon
we reached the entrance of a great dark woods,
known as Freshman Lands. We wandered
through the trees with fear and trembling and
wished we could turn back or find a new way
out. After stumbling about in the dark and
brushing against the huge trees of algebra, we
found ourselves hopelessly tangled in the
brambles of English and science. A cold wind
scattered leaves of discouragement upon us in
the form of flunks and demerits, and we were
knocked down by the snubs of the upperclass-
man. Frankly we decided to elect class officers
to boost our morale. Judith Davis was elected
President, Betty Bushey, Vice-President, Jacque-
line Atwood, Secretary, and Jean Cabree, Trea-
surer. Along with many of us being lost in these
dark woods we were badly frightened by many
ghosts, which we found out later were merely
teachers, tardy marks, and Sophomores. For
nine long months we remained lost in this dark
OVER THE RIVER
Suddenly we realized we had reached a broad
and swift flowing river. It was the golden river
of our sophomore year. We gaily and bravely
went aboard our good ship, Soph-ship. Judy
Davis was the captain, and she directed the class
activities on the way across, Allen Beaupre was
our Pilot, and he assisted in directing the crew,
Ensign LeClaire kept the records, and Leo Pid-

geon was the goodmate looking out for sand
bars and snags of school life. Below in the ship,
all the sophomores were passengers who were
busy with their daily duties, studying during the
day. Late in the day they often came on deck to
The first thing we did this year was to initiate
the incoming freshmen, although in the evening
we made up for everything bad we had done to
them by presenting them a reception.
After this everything was smooth until the end
of October when we took part in the annual Hal-
lowe'en Carnival, which turned out to be quite a
The minstrel show was held in November and
our class was again represented in both Glee
Club and the show.
The one-act play this year was "Triumph in
Ashes", with Judy, Charlotte, Shirley Breault,
Mary and Ellen Beaupre and Paul Robar taking
P In December, some of us took part in the
Christmas Cantata which was presented on the
21st and 22nd,
We closed our year's activities with the Ver-
mont Music Festival. Members from our class
taking part in All-State Band were Betty Bushey,
Judy Davis and Jean Cabree.
TH RO UGH THE MEADOW
As soon as we reached the shore, we saw a
lovely meadow before us, the meadow of Junior-
land. A long road wound like a silver ribbon
across the land. We set out happily on the road
because we were nearer our goal, High School
Education. With the goal ahead, we went
wheeling along. We hurried to elect our officers!
Florence Phillips was elected President, Judith
Davis, Vice-President, Doris LeClaire, Secretary,
Roger Conyeau, Treasurer, and Bernard King
and Irma Lombard were elected to serve on the
Blue and Gold
Student Council. Miss Kellogg was our class
sponsor. As we wheeled along we found there
were many rugged stones and rough places in
our way, like laboratory experiments, sociology,
and American Literature, but we managed.
At the beginning of our junior year, early in
September, we all received our class rings. The
Hallowe'en Carnival was again held in October,
we had the "Salt and Peppern wheel and the
"Baseball Throw". In November, many of us
took part in the annual Minstrel Show. The
Juniors taking part in it were: Betty Bushey,
Shirley Breault, Judith Davis, Doris LeClaire,
Mary Beaupre, and Charlotte Bluto.
On October 26, the Juniors presented a one-
act play, "None So Blindv directed by Miss Kel-
logg. The characters were Betty Bushey, Shirley
Breault, Judith Davis, Doris LeClaire, Allen
Beaupre, Bernard King, Leo Pidgeon, Robert
Limoge and Paul Dingler.
Judith Davis and Constance Jackson attend-
ed Girls, State. Paul Dingler and Leo Pidgeon
attended Boys, State.
Bernard King was chosen by the seniors for
Basketball started in November. From the
Ju11ior Class of Girls, there were Doris LeClaire
and Shirley Johnson on the team. Boys were
Bernard King, Allen Beaupre, Robert Limoge,
Douglas King and Leo Pidgeon. Shirley Johnson
and Douglas King were on the All-Tournament
Team. Both boys and girls won the class tourn-
The last of April baseball started. Leo Pid-
geon, Robert Limoge, Allen Beaupre and Bern-
ard King were players.
In May, We had the Music Festival. Betty
Bushey and Judith Davis were in All State Band.
Florence Phillips, Mary Beaupre, Lois Russell
and Leo Pidgeon were in All-State Chorus.
And at last we reached the roadis end, and we
came to a beautiful mountain. It was awe-in-
spiring, and we stood gazing upward at it en-
tranced with its beauty and possibilities, wonder-
ing what it was. Definitely and ultimately, we
had come to the end of Juniorland.
Just as in a dream, we found ourselves on the
top of this wonderful mountain, On The Skyline
Drive, Seniorland. We were at the top of our
high school journey. An exalted position, I'l1
assure you. The officers chosen for the year
were: President, Judith Davis, Vice-President,
Leo Pidgeon, Secretary, Doris LeClaire, Treasur-
er, Shirley Johnson. The two members chosen
to represent the student council were Connie
Jackson and Maurice Roussin.
While we spent nine months in this high at-
mosphere on the mountain, we won many honors.
Here are the activities of the year: We started
off by selling magazines. Profits were 8318.26
Irma Lombard sold the greatest number. On
October 8, we had a Senior hop with Al Cole's
orchestra for music. At the Hallowe'en Carni-
val, we took care of the cider mill and the paddle
wheel. Next came the Senior Play, "Spring
F every on October 24. Those taking part were
Betty Bushey, Florence Phillips, Constance Jack-
son, Judith Davis, Shirley Breault, Doris Le-
Claire, Leo Pidgeon, Allen Beaupre, Bernard
King, Paul Dingler, Maurice Roussin and Robert
We all had various parts in the Minstrel Show
which was held November 20 and 21 and the
Christmas Pageant held December 19.
Then came the long awaited New York Trip.
We left at 5:30 a.m. on April 6, accompanied by
Mr. and Mrs. Morris, Mr. and Mrs. Mayville, Mr.
Patton, Miss Meyers, Miss Kennedy, and Miss
Stanley. We also took Bernard Smith as our
class marshal. We all had a wonderful time.
In May, Betty Bushey was chosen for All-
State Orchestra, Judith Davis and Jean Cabree
All-State Band, and Leo Pidgeon and Florence
for All-State Chorus.
Now, we come to the final week of our Sky-
line Drive. What lies beyond depends on each
and everyone of us.

At New York City we find that Allen Beaupre,
who was once the quiet boy in the class, now is
assistant producer of the show in Radio City
Music Hall. After he graduated he went there
and acquired a job as an usher. When he was
thirty he had graduated to stage manager. Then
later Allen became assistant producer. We can
see that Allen will be top producer any day now.
After Lois Russell graduated from Milton
High, she decided to become a waitress in a
prominent Brattleboro hotel. It was here that
she married her high school sweetheart. He was
a very good chef so they decided to start a hotel
of their own. Lois and Ray have come home
every year for the Alumni Banquet. At the last
Banquet, Lois said that she and her husband ex-
pect to build a branch hotel soon. Since Milton
has grown in size, they intend to build one here
and return to their home town to live.
We found Shirley Breault in Cuba. You see,
she travels a lot since she married that certain
sailor. When he receives his discharge they will
build a new home in South Hero. They will also
have full interest in Breau1t's Beacon Market.
After Bernard King graduated from Milton
High he entered the United States Air Force.
He served three years, then when he received his
honorable discharge, he started work for General
Electric. He now has a wonderful wife, who
originally came from South Hero. He and his
wife are residing in Milton. Bernard isn,t the
noisy, carefree boy he was in high school nowg
he has settled into a quiet home-loving husband.
We find Irma Lombard has been in Chicago
working for a large law firm. Irma went to Al-
bany Business College after graduating from
Milton High. She liked her work very much and
planned to make a life career of it, but she
changed her mind and now resides in Milton
with her charming family.

We find that Paul Dingler joined the Marines
after he got out of school. He enrolled in the
police squadron. He is now out of the Marines
and is one of the outstanding detectives in New
York City. Recently he cracked a large crime
syndicate, something no one has been able to do
for some time.
We see Judith Davis went to college to study
to become a good secretary. After she got out
of college, she became the indispensible private
secretary for a well-known politician in Wash-
ington, D. C. She takes trips all over the country
and often makes speeches at S300-a plate ban-
We see Iean Gabree in Hollywood after she
graduated from high school. After she arrived
in Hollywood she got bit parts in a movie. She
has now made a few very good musicals. She
can currently be seen in her latest film, "Life
With My Husbandsf'
After Connie jackson graduated, she organ-
ized a 4-H club with which she had great suc-
cess. Her club soon rated highest in the state.
After a few years that same friend who furnished
transportation to the members of the Senior Play
became Connie's permanent chauffeur.
We see that Doris LeClaire became a very
efficient secretary in an insurance company.
After working there a few years, she accepted a
permanent position as a homemaker on a nice
little farm in Georgia, Vermont. She also keeps
her husband's books for him.
We find that after graduating from Milton
High School, Roger Gonyeaa entered the army
and after serving twelve years, he received an
honorable discharge. Then he went into farm-
ing. When he was approaching thirty years old
he became engaged to a Burlington girl, whom
he knew when he was in high school. We see
that last week they were married.

We find that Joyce Scribner went to New York
City and took a job as maid at the Hotel Picca-
dilly. After meeting her high school boyfriend,
Jim, who was a bellhop at the hotel, she decided
to marry. They have been married for about
twelve years and are both employed at the Hotel
After Charlotte Bluto graduated from High
School, she attended Business College. She was
such a remarkable student that she was soon of-
fered a teaching position there. She accepted it,
but after a few years farm life in Colchester
seemed much more alluring.
When June Hayes was in high school, she
thought she wanted to be a telephone operator,
but a life of travel was more enticing. She join-
ed the Women's Air Force and enjoyed it so
much that she has made it a career and is now
stationed in the South Seas at Pago Pago.
After Florence Phillips graduated, Florence
entered nurses' training. She put in many hard
years of study and experience, and finally, was
rewarded by making a great name for herself in
this Held. She spent some years as a Navy nurse,
but has recently decided that one sailor needs
her undivided attention.
After Leo Piclgeon graduated from high school,
he entered the Army. He served his four years
and then decided to settle down. After arriving
in Milton, he found his girl hadn't waited for
him. He now is a wealthy bachelor in Grand
isle, since he has a monopoly on all the apple or-
chards in the county.
WVhen Robert Limoge graduated, he went to
work for his father, but this didn't work out so
well since Bob was supposed to be working in
Georgia, but was spending most of his time in
Milton. This was soon settled because Uncle
Sam put Bob to work for a while. After spend-
ing a few years in the service, he got out and
bought himself a farm. He married his high
school sweetheart and spent the rest of his days
happily listening to the cows and the saxophone.
When Maurice Roussin graduated, he headed
back to New York after being so impressed by
the city on the class trip. Maurice went to a
Mechanical Engineering School for two years,
and then Uncle Sam needed his service for a
while. After returning from the service, Maurice
took up where he had left off in his studies. He
later passed the course with high honors. Now
he has become one of the world's leading mech-
At first, Betty Bushey thought she would go
on to college and make herself one of the lead-
ing women of the state but little persuasion from
a farmer boy changed her mind. For a few
years, Betty played saxophone in one of the lead-
ing orchestras in the state. Now Betty, who
always wanted to have many farm animals, has
realized her heart's desire.
After graduation from high school, Shirley
johnson joined a famous girls, basketball team
and toured the United States and the rest of the
world. A few years later, Shirley came to be
known as one of the great women athletes. After
quite a bit of roaming around, Shirley finally
settled down and married a 1952 graduate of

President 3 Address
Classmates, we find ourselves here on this mountain peak of our lives, The
Skyline Drive. In our dreams and in reality we are up in the sky because being a
senior is sublime, something not of this earth. From this exalted place, we can
look down on the years of the past, our former years in high school. Truly we are
among the rosy tinted clouds of our dreams. A high school education has elevated
us. Actually we have climbed many feet above the level of the unlearned and
untrained. We have grown, relatively, in stature and wisdom. In our climbing,
we have breathed the fresh air of new truths and doctrines and principles, con-
stituting a better way of living. We have elevated our minds-minds that can
distinguish between the rights and wrongs in our national and social situations.
And here we have a World View. From this point, we have a panoramic
view of opportunities and adventures waiting, spread out like an open map before
us, challenging us to seek and find and possess. It's a wonderful view, the world
at our feet! As seniors we feeluthat we can achieve and accomplish almost any-
thing. And perhaps we can. The picture before us is heroically and boldly
etched to attract us. We like this world view. It is inspiring.
And then, classmates,'tlJ1ere are trails.
Yes, we have reached this high elevation, and we have this inspiring view of
the world from the Skyline Drive, but we cannot linger here contentedly, merely
satisfying ourselves with what has been and with what is. We must go forward
with our elevation and our view. We must use our training and our knowledge.
Do you see what I see? Look down yonder. Trails-trails, many of them, twenty.
Twenty trails winding about all through the valleys and over the hills below us,
going in all directions. These trails wind their ways into all the professions and
trades and occupations known to man. Each of you must take one of these trails.
Each has a different destination and a different goal at the end. One trail is yours
-your pilgrimage, your endeavor to live a good and useful life in this world down
below our Skyline Drive. May you each find happiness as you make your way
down your own long, long trail.
And now, in closing, I would like to extend the sincerest thanks of the Class
of 1953 to parents, teachers and friends, who have helped us through these past
four years of high school. Without you the climb to our Skyline Drive would
have been even rougher.

We, the class of 1953 of Milton High School,
being of sound mind and in excellent traveling
condition, willingly make the following bequests
to our beloved school, faculty and classmates.
REWARD 1. To our faculty, we hereby will and
bequeath all the amazing knowledge and start-
ling information that we have furnished them
from time to time in our various examination
papers. We know that much we have impart-
ed to them in this way must have been entirely
new to them, as well as to all the teachers and
students everywhere. If the faculty see fit,
they are hereby authorized to give out such of
this information to the world as they may feel
the world is ready to receive. This, of course,
is left entirely to their personal discretion.
REWAHD 2. To the Junior class, we give and be-
queath all such boys as were not able to keep
pace with such brilliant girls as compose the
majority of our class, trusting that the junior
girls may be able to hold firmly to them and
steer them, next year, through the gates of
REWARD 3. To the Sophomore class, we will and
bequeath any stubs of pencils, erasers, or
scraps of paper that we may inadvertently
leave behind us in the excitement and haste
of gathering up our cherished treasures for the
last time. May they feel free to use them, and
sense, perhaps, that they may, in some mystic
way, gather some of our great knowledge from
ltizwanu 4. To the Freshman class, we will and
bequeath any overlooked cuds of gum we
may have left adhering to the underside of
desks, bauisters, assembly seats or any likely
or unlikely places. VVe have sometimes had
to rid ourselves of these in too much haste to
be able to pick and chose the most desirable
means of disposal.

XVhich henceforth we must tread.

These school days will be held dear-
The wonderful times at M. H. S.,
And the lessons we have learned here.
Nor shall we forget our teachers,

As we become older and Wiser,

Then wc'll each go our own wayg

Not weaken the ones of today.

For we know it has barely begun.

VALEDIC T UR Y BY BETTY
Parents, Teachers, Classmates, and Friends:
Tonight is a night of farewells. Our little
boat is resting at the bend in the stream. We
have reached the Commencement, or turning
point in the deep and unknown channels of life.
We are pausing here at the bend to bid farewell,
and to muster our strength for the work ahead.
The voyage of life has many windings and
turnings, and it is sometimes difficult to realize
just how many more obstacles we must face. As
we row through the waters, it seems like a long
course to follow, never knowing what is around
the next bend. We are frequently tempted to
let our little boat drift wheresoever it may.
It is pleasant to pause here at the bending of
the stream, and recall the calmness of the school-
ripples through which we have been rowing.
We cannot linger here long, however, for already
the noise and roar of life's larger waters are call-
ing us. We know that we must row ahead out of
the peaceful, shallow current of our young life,
where we have been so ably guided, and pull
hard through the deeper and rougher channels
of future life.
Tonight marks the end of formal schooling
for some, while for others it is just a pause before
going on to a higher education at college. In
the former case, it does not mean that the devel-
oping of the mind through learning must stop.
We must keep alive the urge to learn and never
become so contented that we consider ourselves
fully educated. For those of us that are going
on to college, we should only have thanks in our
hearts for those who have made this possible.
Before we leave these protective portals to-
night, we wish to thank our parents, guardians
and friends. For many happy years, our parents
and teachers have carefully sheltered us from
adverse wind. They have warned us of the evil
rocks and shoals or tangle of sea-weed that we
will be sure to meet in our onward course. If
they had not given us this guidance, our start on
the voyage of life might have been saddened by
many disasters. We want you to know how
much we appreciate your loving thoughtfulness
before we sail onward to the sea of larger life
And thus classmates, we linger at the bend
of the stream-the end of our course. So far,
we have pursued our course together, but now
we must row forth alone into the deeper chan-
nels to come. Let us, as the billows of life force
us apart, keep our Blue and Gold ever flying at
the masthead. We want to face these deeper
channels bravely and boldly. We want to hold
our principles and honor high. With the help
of our parents and friends, we feel quite capable
of accomplishing all the tasks that we shall meet.
YVe will show the world as we step out into its
fields of endeavor that we are the materials of
which the best citizens and truest patriots are

AL T A T UR Y BY
Friends, it is my privilege to welcome you
here tonight to see us graduate. I am very grate-
ful for this honor given me. It is a great pleasure
for us to see you here and to know that you care
enough to come and see us embark in that world
in which you are veterans. We hope you will
be as happy to see us join you outside our nar-
row walls as we are to do it. We have enjoyed
high school but know that life is not static. There
are more experiences awaiting us.
To thine own self be true, and it must follow
as night the day. Thou cansit not then be false to
any man! What straight forward and worthy ad-
vice that is! Shakespeare gave that advice to his
son. Surely advice from such a great man to his
son might well be worth while for us to consider.
Can there be any more worthy advice for a high
school graduate? In my opinion there canit be.
Let us go into the subject a little. just what does
this mean? Of course, it will not mean just the
same to everyone and might not even to any two
of you, but I think it probably would bring to
each some measure of self-confidence.
How often we plan to do something which
we know we should do and find ourselves influ-
enced otherwise by a friend who cannot know
how much it means to us that we follow our con-
science! That is not being true to ourselves is
it? A little later we begin to think of the job
which ought to be all done-maybe it is a bed-
room which needs cleaning or an apology which
should have been made-whatever it is, it both-
ers our conscience and brings our irritable side
foremost. We snap at a friend and hurt his
feelings. One cross word may bother him more
than we know-maybe just enough to put him
too into a vile mood. What a succession of in-
stances could occur. This is just one example
and may wander a bit, but think-if in the first
place we had kept our own council-all that
might have been omitted. Isnit it better, if we
have convictions and believe them to be good
and sound, to follow them and not let a chance
word of a friend or acquaintance lead us astray.
Faith in oneis self is the root of all other
faiths. The lack of it can paralyze a life. Of
course, it is natural to have nervous moments.
Everyone who has spoken in public knows the
panic that occurs just before the occasion, and
we are told that the best actors are those who are
most nervous before the curtain goes up. There
is always the fear that lines will be forgotten,
that something will go wrong, and yet the play
goes on, usually without a hitch. The same
preliminary lack of confidence attends accomp-
lishment known to man. But if we all succumb-
ed to such misgivings, nothing would ever be
done. The best way is to forget doubts and set
about the task in hand. If you are doing your
best, you will not have time to worry about
What is more necessary to a human being
than self-respect and how can any person have
self-respect unless he is true to himself and his
fellow men. Only if we keep our morals high,
our minds clean and our brains at work, can we
respect ourselvesg only if we respect ourselves
can we respect others. Without respect for
others, how can we live with them happily and
usefully on this earth.
"To thine own self be true-Thou cans't not
then be false to any mann. This seems to me im-
portant advice to follow as we begin our lives
outside the protecting walls of school. Now we
must meet our problems by ourselves without the
kindliness and guidance of our parents and
teachers always at hand. Following this advice
of Shakespeare, we might be a little less apt to

We didn't have a very
spectacular season this
year, but a good time
was had by all. We
played hard games, but
when the final score was
tallied, it often appeared that the opposing team
had found our little weaknesses and capitalized
All members of the team received individual
trophies for the effort they put into playing to
make it as good a season as possible.
The coaching was handled by Mr. Patton and
Mr. Morris with the assistance of Bernard Lareau
and Alden Iones as managers.
Four members of the team are graduating
this year. They are Allen Beaupre, Leo Pidgeon,
Bernard King and Maurice Boussin.
A Banquet was held for the teams at the Uni-
ted Church a short time after the season was
over. It was sponsored by the P. T. A. and was
appreciated very much by the players.

Ifnglislz I-lfreslnnan English seeks to de-
velop a fundamental knowledge of applied
grammar and some skill in speaking and reading.
l'llI!Lflf.S',l Ilffllhe aim of Sophomore English
is to give the student a liasic appreciation of the
history and types ot literature. Plays, short
stories. poetry. essays and novels arc analyzed
for construction and appreciation. There is an
emphasis upon graunnar in oral and Written re-
Iinglislz Ill-The student in lCuglish Ill gains
a detailed knowledge and understanding of
.-Xmeriean literature from Colonial days to the
20th Century. XVriters who were merely names
on a title page hccoine a reality through a recog-
nition of the importance of historical movements
upon literature. 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
Er1gli.s'll IV-English literature from Chaucer
to the twentieth century is studied in detail. An
attempt is made to give the student a concep-
tion of the changes in literature as the result of
social, economic, and political changes in the life
of a people. An intensive rather than extensive
course ol' study is emphasized.

Chemistry Driver Training
A student must take four years of English. Sociology and United States History are required
Civics and Ilome Economics CGirlsl are required as Freshman or Sophomore subjects.
Glee Club, Band, Physical Education and Music Appreciation are offered to both girls and
boys for which one-half credit is received.
Subjects preceded by an f'l receive credit for college entrance. Those preceded by a ffl
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. On 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 freedom
of choice among studies called 'electives'. All
students who expect to enter college, however,
must make a selection from those electives which
are preceded by an asterisk UD 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 attempt
will be made to remedy the difficulty.
Blue and Gold
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
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 constmc-
tion and show their practical application.
Algebra II-This is a review of elementary
algebra plus a sufficient amount of advanced
material to prepare the pupils for college.
The aims of this course are: C11 To present
mathematics as a practical subject arising from
the life situations of ordinary people, C21 To
give an insight into mathematical principles
necessary to understand our increasingly compli-
cated environmentg QSQ To provide an explora-
tory course in mathematics.
Students who have a fairly good average in
English may elect a language course. Those who
are planning to enroll in college or nurses' train-
ing should take two years of one language to ful-
fill the requirements of those institutions.
Latin I-lt is the purpose of this course to
endow the student with the following: flj The
fundamentals of Latin grammar to permit the
student to continue Latin Ilg 12D A correspond-
ing knowledge of English grammar, QSJ An
acquaintance with derivatives and related Latin
words, f4Q Sentence writing and translation of
Lating f5j The meaning of a word in its sur-
rounding contextg CGD The historical and cul-
tural material available in Latin I, and 17D An
acquaintance with mythological material.
Latin II-The aims set up for the first year
are continued and enlarged upon, with more in-
tensified study. The studentls power to translate
should become increased. There is continued
opportunity to become acquainted with the his-
tory of Rome. Caesar proper is not encountered
until late in the year and then in simplified form.
French-A study of this language aims at
giving the pupil an understanding of the French
way of life and an appreciation of the contribu-
tions of France to the modern world and in part-
icular to Amercian life and culture. In the first
year of study emphasis is placed on oral French
along with those fundamentals of grammar which
are necessary to make it possible to carry on
An average of C must be obtained in French
I to continue with French II. In the second year
the main emphasis is on reading French culmin-
ating in the translation of a French novel.
General S c i e n c e-The composition and
changes in matter, control and use of fire and
heat, cause and prevention of diseaseg food, our
water supply, weather, harnessing our energy,
use of machines, electricity and light, methods
of communication, and transportation, the heav-
ens, the earthis surface, and plant life are topics
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
quantitive 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
contributions to society, to plant and animal life,
all are stressed. Mathematical solutions to chem-
ical problems are required. Laboratory periods
for student experimentation average two periods
Blue and Gold
Social Sczence Department
Civics-This course deals with the meaning
of American democracy, the major problems of
our government, and the obligations of the citi-
Vocations-This course is given to help young
people to understand the workers of the world
and the kinds of work they do.
When the right time comes, the pupils will
need to make their own choice of work, to decide
how they are going to earn their living and how
they are going to prepare for success in the call-
ing they have chosen.
Sociology and Problems of American Democ-
racy-Sociology concerns itself with problems of
modern social living and how these problems
are being solved by our democratic system of
World History-The course attempts to give
an understanding of how our present civilization
developed from the past and what the different
ages and peoples have contributed to the present.
United States History-The objective of this
course is to furnish a background of ideals, strug-
gles, victories, failures, and compromises Which,
viewed objectively, impress our country, force-
fully and favorably on each high school student.
Home Economics Department
Home Economics is required of all girls in
grades 7, 8, and 9. There is an advanced course
which can be elected by upperclass girls.
This year, for the first time, boys could take
Home Economics. This class met twice during
the band period. The boys made chefis aprons,
sport shirts, and learned how to care for a sew-
ing machine. They proved that boys, as well as
girls, can be good cooks.
The Freshmen studied units on good groom-
ing, getting along with others, textiles, clothing
construction, nutrition, and meal planning and
service. In addition to these units, the advanced
class studied interior decorating and caring for
children. This class was responsible for making
twenty-three new choir robes for the glee club.
They also rearranged the Home Economics room,
so that we now have a separate kitchen and a
classroom with a family living center.
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
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
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 student to type accurately at the rate of
forty words per minute. The various letter forms
are studied with special emphasis on attractive
placement. This includes carbon copies and en-
velopes. Much time is devoted to personal typ-
Typewriting II-Objective: The ability to
type accurately at the rate of fifty 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 stensils and instructions are given in the
use of the duplication machine.
junior Business Training-The objectives of
this course are: to provide a background of eco-
nomic education such as should precede any vo-
cational training and to lay a firm foundation for
the achievement of economic security.
Ofice Practice--This course provides inten-
sive pre-employment training. The objectives
are Cll to aid the student in mastering office
skills such as filing, duplicating, keeping payroll
records, and operating calculating machines and
Q25 to develop the personal qualities and traits
that are essential for success in a business office.
This is a course in woodworking, using com-
mon tools, power equipment and lathe.
gl Blue and Gold
Admission - Any pupil having graduated
from the eighth grade is admitted to the high
school. 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
95225.00 for year 1953-54.
If a pupil lives in a Vermont town which does
not maintain a high school, his home district is
legally obligated to pay this fee.
Marking System-The marking system is a
standard one used by most high schools.
A Q92-1001 excellent workg B Q85-92D very
good Workg C 177-855 good workg D C70-775
poor workg F Cbelow 701 no re-examination
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 suggestions may help in
keeping cut' 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
Parents and other adults are welcome at the
school at all times. We invite any intelligent
and sympathetic criticism.
