It is an old Indian name meaning the "hidden jewel", This may not be applicable to this yoarbook,' but it does have a pleasing sound, The members of the staff are: Editor in Chief ----------- - ---------------------- -Donald Freeman Assistant Editor ---------- -------------------- Sturgis Turnbull Literary Editor- ----------- -------------- - ----- ---Janet Freeman Exchange Editor ----- Alumni Editor---- Club Editor- --------- Drama Critie-- ----- we Photography Editors..

First of all, there is Mr. Ernest, our principal, whose idea of heaven is camping at his camp near Moosehead. He's quite a sportsman, we hear. Then, of course, there's Cecil nSqueakn Carter. CAsk him where he got that nickname.D He used to be a member of a hill- billy band, but he is now our music supervisor. We're glad he decided to be a music teacher instead of staying with his former nbandg. ' And there's Mr. Coates, let's not forget him and his nSopho- more Delightsu. COf course the rest of the school doesn't call them that.D He's had some pretty wild rides in Driver Training Class and he deserves a lot of credit for his unending patience. And we have Miss Walsh, our beautiful redhead, who might be Rembrandt's sister. She keeps Mt. Desert High gayly decorated, Also we have Mr. Redmond, Mount Desert's eligible bachelor. He keeps the girls sighing, our basketball team rolling, and we're wondering how much longer he can keep that Pontiac rolling. H. H. Carter is still with us and so far no one has been able to make him permanently forget his beloved Friday tests. But, tests and all, we'd hate to lose him. Mrs. Stinchfield is still nQueen of the Kitchenn. She's doing a good job of making cooks, seamstresses, and baby sitters from Mt. Desert girls. And then there's Mr. Jowdry, building the boys into Charles Atlases like himself. And there's Miss Wood who manages the girls in the field of physical education and she is well liked by everyone for her un- derstanding and fairness. A And Miss Ryder who is leaving us next year. It seems she has found a greater interest than Mount Desert High and has de- cided to have a June wedding. As nKing of the Workshopn we have Mr. Salisbury. We hope he never cuts his fingers off as some of the boys tried to do. Mrs. Herrick is still trying to teach us to say UI wash and uYou weren. The author of our English books ain't got nothing on her. This year we have Miss Drummond, our actress who really helped our Dramatics Club put over some good shows this year. Miss Pressey is also leaving us for outside interests, that is, she is leaving to become a Mrs. Miss Wing is leaving us, too. Where are we going to find another French teacher as good as she has been?

Its primary purpose was to stimulate interest and to reward scholastic or academic interest in secondary ed- ucation. Leading educators felt that there was a definite need for oromoting higher ideals of citizenship than were being re- alized by the athletic and social organization of that time. After analyzing the needs of training forgood citizenship, those responsible suggested four standards which they oroposed should be the basic qualifications of a high school honor .society-- Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service. This society at Gilman was never active to the extent of ever having participated in the formal induction ceremony. However, later in the year we hope to have such a ceremony for the new members and to try to make the society a more functioning group, even though our members will still be few. To be a member of the National Honor Society is considered one of the highest honors paid to an American high school boy or girl. William Kimball is the only active member, having been elected in his junior year. Those chosen for the year l95l-- Seniors: Ida Beale, Jean Graves, and Lillie Joy. Juniors: Anne Foster. STUDENT COUNCIL At the first meeting of the Student Council, the following officers were elected for the school year: President,John WiDs3 Vice-President, Ida Bealeg Secretary, Lillis Joy, Treasurer,Billy Kimball. The Student Couhcil is sponsoring the sweater program. Each senior who has enough points will receive a sweater. The money to purchase these sweaters was earned by selling potato chips, popcorn. hot dogs. and soft drinks at the basketball games and other activities. Two joint Student Council meeting were held during the year, One washeld at Pemetic High School and the other at Mount Desert High School. Schools attendingthese meetings were Pemetic High School. Mount Desert High Sohool,and Ellsworth High School. Problems of the student council werediscussed at thtle meetings. It is planned to hold these meetings regularly next year. A coke machine was purchased by the Student Council for use in the cafeteria. John Walls '52 NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Seated: Jean Graves, William Kimball, Ida Beale. Standing: Anne Foster, Lillis Joy.

The supporters of this type of taxation say that taxes should be based upon Uabilitytolpayn. WThe rich can afford to pay the taxes for all of usn, they chant. UWhat's another million to the Rockefellers?U at first glance, this seems to be a reasonable tax policy. After all, a million- aire could nay a thirty-thou- sand dollar income tax more easily than most of us could pay thirty dollars. And even if it lisn't exactly fair, shouldn t the middle and lower income groups supnortthis pro- gram?' Let us see who favors soaking the rich. First and foremost, there is the politi- cian. He wants to get the most tax revenue from a minority of the voters. He expects the lower income sroups to keep him in office outcm'sratitude. Also, the very low income vot- ers favor Utaking it out of the richu simply because they want to reduce everybody to their own level. The social- ists favor taxing the rich out of existence. Today, our tax orosram is in between thatcH'our 1900 tax fvery low taxes for richJ and England's present tax system fvery high' taxes for, richl. Let us suppose that we yielded to 'the labor leaders and socialists and really soaked the rich. what would happen if we taxed away 991 of every- thing over Sl0,00C? This wouldn't be a hardship for ihe rich. You can still live com- fortably on 3l0,000e:year, and most of us do not make that much money in two or three years. One of the first things to happen would be a stock market crash. This would re- sult from the sudden lack of capital. The income over ten thousand is that which is invested fin stocks and bonds and mortgages and lent to small businessmen. This extra income is normally put to work providing jobs and products and services. - So we should all go about happily with our tax money jingling in our pockets? We could buy more things, and we could .laugh at the rich who could no longer afford to run mansions and yachts. Ne should indeed by very happy -- for a while. But then the day of reckoning would come. Someday you might want to borrow money to start a business. Without venture can1tal,you1would have to wait until you had saved up all the money yourself. Indust- rial progrcss would have to stop. Progress takes genital, and capitml means capitalists. When the tools wore out, and the factories needed new smokestacks, who could afford to replace them? You guessed it -- the government. when the president of the corporation sees .his 3200,000 salary dwindle to 811,900 after taxes he begins to wonder why he's knocking himself out to manage a whole -corporation when he can get Sl0,000 for a job with a fraction of the worries and responsibility. Another effect of this radical tax program would be the reduction of all salaries to the level of ten thousand dollars. Since hisher salaries would offer practically no increase in real wasfs, cor- porations wouldn't pay them, and executives wouldn t demand them. Thus the government would get no revenue at all from income taxes. Here in a resort area, we can feel the pinch of Usoaking the richu taxes more painfully than in many areas. When their taxes are high, they don't have so much to spend freely. This hurts every businessman and wage earner on the island. Anotherincidental feature of a tax program such asllhave outlined would be theimmediate retirement of all successful movie stars, baseball players and other high-income enter- tainers. They would rather retire on' their fortunes than work for 510,000 a year. Roy Rogers and Trigger would hang up their boots and saddles forever. No, soaking the rich is not the answer to our tax pro- blems. Nhether we like it or not, in our way of life there must be the opportunity to make moneyg as much money as anyone has energy and talent to earn. When you discourage wealth, you encourage poverty. Donald Freeman Editor-in-chief Truman-Acheson Politics The recent oustingof'Gen- eral Macarthur as supreme com- mander of the forces in Korea was purely a political move, motivated by Dean acheson and carried through by Harry Tru- man. Tthaslong been Acheson's goal to remove all those per- sons from his path who might serve as obstacles to the ful- fillment of his present polit- ical aspirations. He and Tru- man and the rest of the Demo- cratic clique in Washington are no more than politicians, completely uninterested in what the american people want. They serve as the puppets of England, France, India, and several other European coun- tries too weak kneed to stand up to the communists. They think that they can appease communism. Have they not com- mon sense enough, after two world wars, to realize that they cannot appease dictators. Then only way to make the world safe from communism is to des- troy it and its adherents. Now that General MacArthur has been removed, Acheson has a free rein in determining our Far Eastern policy. He can do practically as he desires. He and the Washington clique who refuse to believe that the Far Eastis of any sreat importance may now proceed to forget all about Korea, the ten thousand Americans d'k1lled there,,and the many thousands who will be maimed for life. Just how are the soldiers fighting there soing to feelwhenTruman tries to make peace with China? By making peace with China, if such a thing is possible, Tru- man is signifygng that the United States has lost the war in Korea. If he makes peace with China it will mean that we will have to reorganize the Chinese communist government. Recently it became known that England has quietly been insisting to our State Depart- ment that it let China in on the Japanese peace treaty and also turn Formosa over to the Rode and allow the communists a seat in the U.N. The americans have no in- terests in the Far East except from the standpoint of Demo- cracy, whereas England has large investments in Asia. Englrnd would much rather see a stalemate in Korea than an open war with China. We have over 200,000 troops in Korea. They have l3,000. We are bear- ing the brunt of the war, and yet do wedo as we think should be done? Of course notg we let England tell us what to do. We supposedly are fighting under the banner of the United Nations. They are not united, and they will not asreecnmwhat to do about China, whether to blockade it, or to impose ec- onomic sanctions. They persist in believing that they can successfully appease China. The very name is paradoxical. It's the most divided group of nations in the history of the world. When General MacArthur was made U.N. commander in the Korean War, he started out with one hand tied behind his back, and when he spoke out against it, he was dismissed because his policymms contrary to that of the government, but it certainly was not contrary to the peoples policy. It was simply contrary to. left-wing Europe. N The American people are unfortunately burdened at this time of world crisis by the most greedy, egotistical eroup of politicians inthetwentieth century, who lack both the morality and the brains to manage our great country pro- perly. The removal of General Macarthur was typical of our Ucocperate with the Redsu policy. We have not one real red blooded american in the high positions of government who dares to oppose the Reds. On Formosa Chaing-kai-shek has 900,000 troops with which he could start a second front in China, relieve prfssure on the American troops, and liberate his homeland. But President Truman said recently that any such thing might hastena third World war. what stupid reason- ing! If Stalin intends to start a war, then the invasion of China would not affect it one way or the other. Certainly in 1952 the peo- ple will be wise and fortunate if they get rid of the weak kneed Truman - Acheson admin- stration. H. Sturgis Turnbull Assistant Editor Lines Written on the Fine Art of Political Debate Those who debate en politics, And laws and taxes too, Remind me of the animals That jabber in the zoo. They start out diplomatically, But as arguments go hy, They wish that theirantagonist Would just curl up and die! Lillie Joy TO THE SENIORS.... As the hour is drawing near for you Seniors to graduate, you are about to assume responsibility. I would like to leave with you the following thoughts: UThe Things Money Can't Buyn Money can't buy real friendship- ---- friendship must be earned. Money can't buy a clear conscience---square dealing is the price. Money can't buy the glow of good health---right living is the secret. Money can't buy hapoiness--happiness is a mental atti- tude and one may be as happy in a cottage as in a mansion. Money can't buy character ---- -character is what we are when we are alone with ourselves in the dark. ff-Wgewwak Princ al N ai ' a . . 1 Y . Q V 4 Fl Q 1, . 'ft rw r .1 4 .

Many people have reverted that they have given Snick a ride home from Somesville cor- ner at late hours. We wonder if he'd he interested in the estahlishment of a busline. Weell know John Smallidge plans to attend the Maine Mari- time Academy and we would like to give hima little parting ad- vice. Remember to stay out of trouble,John, while in Castine, as the friendly lawyers livein Ellsworth. Since Lillis has returned from her Boston trip,she seems Can this be especially happy. staring fever? Y.'.'e'll keep a close watch of her on the sen- j.O1" tripo Acertain senior got her lic- ense this year and seems to be making good use of it. Jean, why is it we see the "sixty" Over around the "Westside" so much? Better going? As everyone k'1ows,Billyis a great dancer. It seems he has found himselfapartner, a pop- ular lassie from the"Sophomore Delights." After all these years to- gether, Jack has discovered an interest in our own class.Does this mean youfll he 'making fre- quent :trips to the Freeman hme. Jack? It seems that Don has some trouble in catching the girlhe wants. Tell us, Don, can'tyou keep up with her or isn't she very co-operative? Tell us, Polly,what is at the roller skating 'rink that entertains you so completely? Some of us have heen there,but we don't see any future in just going around in circles. Is it just the skating? Why is it we sec Ruthie and Sis at the mail every night? Everyone knows they've got their men. Those letters must be worth waiting for. It seems that there .are a couple of seniors interested in the Westside. It's the same family too. I wonder if Jean fixed Johnny F. up over there, or if that's just a friendly family. ' I According to all resorts, Shirley K. has been seen rid- ing around with a certain "Crockett" frcrm Southwest. Now Clayton seems to be spending most of his time around Ellsworth. What seems to be the attraction, "Croc"? Since Marie got her license she has been driving all the time. " .l'. e would suatgest that she watch out for policemen, especially in Southwest. Barbara seems to like the bowling alley pretty well. We sometimes wonder if it's just the bowling. 'Jfe hear Sturgis likes to watch the stars. I don't be- lieve he can be doing it all by himself.

Helen Robinson'sinterests all lie in the service but we don't know if it's the Army or the Navy. John Walls has developed an interest in thefbller Rink. What's the reason, John? Barry, how are your all night parties and why doesn't anybody come to school thenext day after you have them? Who is the 1LovsreBoy the Junior class? Right now seems to be Bob Doritty. of it Bobby Fernald has lots of interests and they all lie in Otter Creek so we hear.Is that right? Another one has beenadded to the ones who hang aroundthe postoffice. How does he like the service, Sheila? We are all wonderingwhere Marge went on a certain nnonn hour when Rat appeared home. That would be telling wouldn't it, Marge? Now who does Isky like? Whoever it is, he keeps it a deep dark secret. SOPHOMORES So Jean-Pat has taken the road to Bar Harbor. Take it easy, Jean. Someone said that Pop thinks it's pretty good loving up in the Balcony of B. H3 movie theater. How about it, Pop? Blaine Haynes must like the drive to Beech Hill, as his car isseen parked in front of Lenora Wallsvg house almost every night. Now we know why Clara Kelley always likes to go to school on the bus. Ronnie Musetti is quite popular up at the Sound. Bobby Dodge's legsnust be getting weak from walking to Somesville so much. We suggaw that Doris buyfa car, Bobby. A little birdie told us about this new romance in Seal Harbor. Pat Jordan and Tom y Conary. 4 What attraction do you Who isit that keeps study rind in Menuet, laloniev In it Donnie Uoed's good build or what! what is the attraction at the west Side? We hear Marilyn singing USonny Boy' all the time now. Whatis it that the Junior girls have get that the others haven't, Peter? I wonder if Sheila and Marge could tell us any thing about it. Vcnnie must be one of the roving kind. We don't know if she prefers Ellsworth or Bar Harbor. Mr. Redmo nd certainly gets around. Every time we see him he is with a different girl.

I guess maybe Paul could give us some information. FRESHMEN Nancy is the changeable type. First it was Brownie, then Oliver Spear, and then Eddie Paine. who will it be next, Nip?

All In a Few Minutes Crash!!!! when I finally came to, I d1dn't know where I was. I looked around meg as far as I could see there was nothing except the remains of some kind of rocket. Slowly it came back to me in vague pictures, of how for months Professor Zurrell had been pre- paring for this trip to the moong of how I accidentally got trapped in the spaceship a few hours before it was sched- uled to besin this history making event. There were the Professor and his wierd look- ins companion, Dr. Finsky? I got up, dizzily, to see if they were still inthe ship. I Jumped overairock and sailed six feet into the air, coming down at my destination. I found the door and finally got it opened. I climbed in and looked around. The boxes of food, clothing, and equipment didn't seem to be badly damag- ed. Thank heaven for that! I went on to the cockpit and the sisht I saw turned my blood. This ship had landed on its nose and the front was com- pletely shattered, the Pro- fessor and Dr. Finsky still at the controls. I went out, shutting the door behind me. I was all alone! The onli liv- ing soul on the moon, 2 0,000 miles from any other human be- ing. I sat down to think. If I ever wanted to 'get out of this alive, I would have to start repairing the ship at once. AI least the back part of it hadn't been damaged. But first I'd have to set rid of the two bodies in the cockpit so I would be free to work there. A grim thought, but it had to be done. I went into the shattered cockpit again and nearly fellover'backwards. The bodies weren't there! I shut the door quickly, shaking all over with fright. Finally I composed myself and tried to think thinss out. what kind of creatures had taken those bodies? There must be some- thing around besides me. I de- cided I would wait until morn- inr before I went out asain, as it would probably soon be niiht. I looked at my wrist- watch, but it wasn't going. If I had to stay here long, it would be easier if I had some kind of order and schedule to go by. Sp I began to unpack the many boxes scattered arolnd. In one I found a couple of pillows and a variety of blan- ketsg in another canned goods, some flour, cornmeal, salt, a supply of' water, and a few fresh fruits, which would last for a few days. In another box I found a hammer, saw, screwdriver, pliers. and a few other tools, plus a dozen pen- cils and notebooks in which I could keep account of the time and my progress on the repair- ins of this metal tube which was the cause of all my trou- ble. In an third box I found some matches, flashlight, can- dles, some sort of hot plate fwhich used oil and was fill- edl, and just what I needed, the plans for runnimgthe ship, pictures and explanations, of the controls, etc. Professor Zurrell was well prepared. I wasn't hunsry so I made a fairly comfortable bed and tried to sleep. Surprisingly enough, I did. I awoke in .the morning feeling somewhat better. I hopped out of bed and went about getting something to eat. Then I wrote in my diary about the preceding night, which I had failed to do before I went to bed. I also wrote the date, from which I would be able to keep track of the time. I found apair of overalls in one of the few remaining boxes, nut them on and went out to explore. I foundtracks, suite large. I shivered and decided I wouldn't FO far a- way. Suddenly I heard some- thing. A wild screechingnoise, and then moaning. It sounded suite dfar away, but it was close enough for me. I decid- ed to work on the engine, so as to keep my 'mind' busy. I got my tools and set to work. My pounding was the only sound except for the occasional screeching and moaning. I must have worked all day, because when I set hungry and stopped workire, it was setting chilly and dark. So I picked up my tools and went into my new home and shut the door. I get some food into me, then stud- led the plans of the ensine. They weren't too comolicatedg possibly I could complete my task before my supplies ran out. I wrote in my diary and went to bed. Thus passed my first day of life on the moon, uneventful, as were the days and weeks that followed. The weeks went by. I kept account of the time and my progress in my diary. I had grown used to the strange noisesg to the fresh tracks outside my door. At last I finished the ensine. Whether it would run or not, I didn't know. I checked my supolies and found I had enough to last for a few more days. For the many, many, days I had been here I had done no exploring. I hadn't dared go very far from the ship, and I didnft want to do anything else until the spaceship was ready for its return flight to Earth, anyway. New was my time. I found a knapsack and put a few thinss into it and set out. I closed the door behind me and gazed about. Everything was perfectly still. Where were those crea- tures who had been around cvery nisht, and who had taken Professor Zurrell and Dr. Fin- sky from the cockpit? I wan- dered on, looking at the crat- ers, until finally I was out of sight of the spaceship. Suddenly, way ahead of me, I saw cueer shaped trees. I thought it funny that there should be these trees, and ab- solutely nothingazwwhere else. I kept setting nearer and nearer. When I was within six feet of the grove of trees a blood-curdling scream arose, followed by groans. I was petrified! as I stood, rooted to my tracks, the trees slowly parted, and, in the center stood ---- the Thing! I turned and ran as fast as I could. Panting, I climbed into the spaceship, shutting the door hard behind me. Pull this lever - - push that one - - push the green button - - would the ship so? - - would it land safely on Earth? It rose slowly - - four feet - - six feet - - eight feet. Thud! I was on the floor beside my bed. Norma Cousins '52 ,Thoughts on Security I think I'll go to Thomaston And live a life of easef I'd rather eo to Thomaston Than do just as I please. For in my free, unfettered state, Although I still can get up late, I must look forward to the day - When Uncle Sam will pay my way. The draft will catch me when I'm through With high school in a month or two. Do I intend to meet my fate In Russia? Ho, I'd rather wait.

Qcon'tJ we are seniors at last but at Mount Desert High. We have left you, dear Gilman, behind. We'll grieve for you not, but remember you well AB we leave here our future paths to wind. One year has sped by but the building still stands Lonely, forgotten, but true. But somehow old memories linger still Paying silent homage to you. Air The small three letter word air does not seem like very much when you first look at it. But as you think, you realize how important it is. If the air should suddenly disappear from around The earth everyone would die within a few minutes. Our engines would not run because the air nec- essary for combustion would not be there. All the air- planes would crash not only because of their engines stop- ping but because the air that holds the plane up would be gone. There would be no sense in trying to parachute out for you would come down just as fast as you would Without a parachute because the air that holds you back would be gone. Wind driven tools wouldlxeuse- less. All fires would go out immediately for lackcu'oxygen. Even if it were not for the fact that we would suffocate, all of our modern equipment would be useless, and the life we have known would be done. Rudolph Musetti '52 Julie Ells' Father The rain was beating fur- iously against the windows of the small Cape Cod cottage, located in a small village on the coast of Maine. A young Lillie Joy '51 girl was sitting by a window with her nose pressed hard against it. She was thinking and wondering. Her name was Julie Ells. She and her mother lived together in this little cottage by the sea. Her mother had gone out for the afternoon, so Julie was alone. g Julie was wondering what she often wondered, where was her father, what had ever hap- pened to him? Julie had never seen her father but she had heard people speak of him in hushed tones and when she came near to them they stopped talk- ing. Julie and her mother were very close and very devoted to each other. Julie had often asked her mother about her father, but her mother always quickly changed the subject. Julie knew her mother just didn't want to talk about him so Julie had given up asking about him. Maybe she'd tell Julie when she got older, but Julie d1dn!t want to wait, she wanted to know now. Julie stared out of the window for what seemed like hours to her. She'd forgotten about her father and was now trying to think of something to do. Suddenly she thought of some old games that she used to play with on rainy afternoons. She remembered that her mother had packed them and had put them away in the attic. So Julie hurried to the attic. This was' theffirst time Julie had been in the attic for a long time and she saw many things which she'd never known were there oefore. She was very interested and excit- ed about the things she'd found. It seemed like a game to Julie, she was having a wonderful time. Julie had found a Dig boxful of lots of different things which she was now looking through. As she neared the bottom cf the box she saw a book marked UPhoto- graoh Eooku. Julie loved to look at oictures so she hauled it out from under a bile of paoers. When she did some newsoaner clinpings flew to the floor beside her. As she oicked the clip- pings un, one caught her eye. ROBERT J. ELLS KILLED IH GUN BATTLE WITH POLICE. I Julie read on and she learned that her father had Killed a man and wounded another one while he and another man were trying to escane. They had robbed many olaces and had finally been caught. Julie was numb from the shock:H'reading about her father. She managed half consciously to put the things back in the box the way they had been. U Julio hurried downstairs because she didn't want her mother to Know she'd been in the attic. It was hard for her to believe the story about her father but ncwit all added up. She understood now why her mother didn't want to talk about him. Julie was glad she had found out the way she had because it must have been so miserable for her mother. ask Julie would never about her tether again and her mother wouldn't know that she had found out about him. Sheila Graves '52 The First Settlers Of Mount Desert Island On September 5, 1604 a big oben boft, fitted with a lateen sail and.witk1oars sail- ed from the mouth of the St, Croix, westward along'Gracoast on an exploring voyage. Aboard this shin were two famous men De Konts and Chamolain.Cn this same day Champlain and bei-lonts discovered and island which Ghamolain named UIsle des Monte Deserts.U Centuries ago,th1s beaut- iful island of rugged cliffs, mountains towering into the heavens, and waters of the ocean hurling a spray into the air was a favorite resort of the Indians. When Champlain came here there was a tribe of Abenake Indians whom he later called the W3tcheninsU, ,which meant UPeople who live in canoes.W They crme to the island on sumser fishing trips. They dug clams, and tranved Jbeaver, later returning to Penobscot. The chief olnae of the Iniian resort was at hanchester's Point at the entrance of Somes Sound. In 1613 white voyagers landed on Mount Desert called by the Indians, Pemetic. There was a settlement made at Fer- nald's Point. The site of this settlement was called Saint Saveur. Nearly three centuries ago, came the French Jesuit missionaries. The first church on the Island was organized October 17, 1792. The first known settlers were Abraham Semes and his family. Sylvia Leland '52 The Solitude of Donald Freeman I In this modern world, desert islands are few and far between, but I might just as well have been on one last summer. After school closed, I get a Job in the New England Canned Foods Division of the A and P. This is down in Con- necticut, and all the A and P canned foods are stored there awaiting shipment to the local Uhed Frontsu. My duties were simple. I was to out the canned foods into boxes and stack them in a elle. I don't know how the canned foods get in the ware- house, but ltwasfull of them, piled almost to the ceiling. As I entered theplace for the first time, the supervisor said to me, UYou can see that this is an easy job, you just keen busy andrn:one'w1llbother you. But I must warn you -- you are the third person to take over packing the cans into the cartons. The other two workers mysteriously'disappean ed.U ' I walked into the long building and began work. At ten o'clock, I had packed 7000 cans of lima beans into 250 cartons. The supervisor had left me, and I was alone in the warehouse. Since I had worked for three hours, I thought I'd go outdoors and have a smoke. Imagine my con- sternation when I discovered that I eouldn't find the door! As far as I could see there was nothing but cans and car- tons. It was easy to see that I had covered up the wall and door with full cartons of lima beans. I started moving the cases from one place to another, trying to find the door. I moved the cases and stacked them up behind me, but though I worked feverishly for a half hour, I could see nothing but more cans and more cartons. I must have started in the wrong direction, and was working my way toward the center of the twelve acre building. I get panicky, clawing at the stacks of canned goods in an effort to find the right direction and get out. My arms were tired and my back was bent with lifting the cartons of lima beans. I was wet with oerspir- ation and completely t1red.out. II I stayed in lima beans for the first week. Luckily, I carried a boy scout pocket knife with a can opener blade. Each day, I moved cans and cases, slowly methodically. The second week, I moved to eorned beef. I also ate corned beef. I now hate corned beef. I also hate lima beans. In a monthcu-two, I stum- bled upon a clever idea: I kept several cans of each food with me. This provided some variety. I also stumbled upon the body of one of my predeces- sors. He didn't have a can opener. He did have a bottle opener, however. I remarked to myself on the strange fate which gives some of us bottle openers in the midst of cans while others of us set can openers for usein a 'bottling plant. III I'm out of the place now. I'm not in the canned foods division of the atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, Incorpor- ated, in the Connecticut ware- house where all the cans go that are kept before' shipment to the Red Front stores in New England. I'm out. I'd like to tell you the thrilling story of how I escaped from- my prison, my modern desert isle. I'd like to tell you how I used my boundless ingenuity and superhuman intel- lect to device a fiendishly clever way to get out of my land-locked Alcatraz. I'd like to tell you how I thousht of my fellow humans as I lived alone all last sum- mer. I used to stare for hours at the picture of a cow on the It was the only milk cans. other animal in the place. If I owned a real cow for milk in that every can of place, I would have a lot of cows. More cows than anyone else, probably. Or at least nearly as many. The only reason I'm not in that warehouse today is the fact that even twelve acres of food docsn't last forever. I ate up all the food, flattened all the cans,wa1ked.outthroug1 the door and had that smoke that I started to have back in June. Donald Freeman '51 The Red Rose Plant rich girl Once a very received a red rose plantfbr-g It looked birthday present. very pretty,but the girl dkkvt had many care for it. She presents which she liked better: She dldn't wate1'and,look after her plant. Finally the blos- soms faded and the housemaid picked up the red flower-pot in which the rose lived and tossed.it1nto the rubbish can. Shortly afterward a man came and emptied the rubbish from the can into his cart. Then he emptied his cart on a rubbish heap outside the city. That very day a boy came to the rubbish pile, saw the flower pot and thought, UI can sell the potn, so he picked It up and took it home. when he reached home he cleaned out the not and sct it in the yard. Then hr washed the pot and sold it for a penny. New among the faded flow- ers was a ripened seed. after it had fallen to the ground the boy stepped on it and all winter the seed slept. when spring came,the seed had grown into a plant. This yard was cluttered with all k1ndscu'rubb1sh. A very untidy house stood by in which lived a boy and girl. One day they ran into the yard and saw a pretty plant growing in the yard. They let it grow and each day the girl dug around it. Then one morning they saw two beautiful red roses. They called their father, who came to see it, and as he looked at the plant he noticed all the rubbish in the yard. UHow untldy it 1ooks'herejnhe shid. The Qirl told her mother to look out the window and see the lovely rose. The mother tried to look, but the glass was so dirty she could not see through it. uwhy, I never noticed how dirty and untidy this house 1s!n she said. when the father and chil- dren came home the next night, the house was clean and bright. After supper the boy and his father eleancd un the rub- bish from the yard. From that time on the house was kept clean, the chil- dren ware clean and tidy, and the yard was kept free from rubbish. And it all happened bs- cause of the little plant with its green leaves and pretty red roses. Judy Jordan Grade 8 Maine Winter Give me the snow, the deep white snow I can erunoh beneath my feet.

The Haunted House It was a dark foggy night as George Black was driving to Saintsville to have his new book published. As he neared the outskirts of the villaae, he noticed that the gas gauge resistered nearly empty, but itwas late and the gas stations had closed for the night. It was only a few miles to the next village, so he drove on, hoping he could make Saints- ville before he ran out of gas. As he drove on, the road appeared dark and the trees cast shadows across it making it appear spooky. It sent a shiver up George's back. There were street lights scattered here and there. There were no houses in sight. George, thinking of what he would to if he should get stranded on this lonely road, he pressed his foot down, the car jumped ahead, coughed, and then stopped. He was out of gas! The only thing for him to do was to start walking to the next village. It had just started to rain. He could hear the clash of thunder in the distance and knew that a big storm was com- ing up. Sally Scarborough Grade 8 ns he looked around for some kind of shelter he saw a large brown house off in a field by itself. as he neared the house he could see that no one had lived thfrc for a long time. The glass in the windows had been broken out, the wind was blowing the shutters against the house, making loud bangs. As he neared the door he saw a sign that said, UBEWARE, KEEP OUTN. He opened the door and peered inside. Then he slowly felt his way along what he thought was probably the hall- way. He came to a doorway, and then lit a matchgit cast weird shadows on the wall. All that was in the room was a huge box covered with dust. It reminded him of a coffin. as he stood looking at it, the lid slowly began to rise. At first he thought that he was just imag- ining it. when the lid flapped open, a huge man steeped out. His clothes were ragged and worn. He was thin and pale. He looked just like a ghost. He started for George but then changed his course and walked right past him and outdoors. Aft0T the door closed, George ran back into the room to inspect the box. He noticed at one end of the box a book. On the cover' was marked "Diary" . He opened it and inside it read, UI have only one more body to get before my plan-is a success.U George became frightened and startedto run. As he stood up he heard a noise. He looked. The huge monster was behind him ready to stroke him with an axe. Just as the monster made one blow with the axe and missed, he woke up. It had been only a dream. Anne Foster '52 Racing Day ,During the summer I often go to Rockend Dock on racing day to watch the contestants of the picturesque sailooat races return. The peonle look as though it were hard-work, but loads of fun. They return with red but smiling feces and wet clothing. Most of these neople are summer residents, however, some are people who assist with the sailing les- sons, or the children who are instructed. The neonle step on the dock with bundles of clothing and left over food. Most neo- ble who race stay for two or three days, sometimes more. Just as all the beautiful white sails annroach the dock it makes you think of seagulls floating through the sky.Some- times if there is enough wind, the sails tipso much you think they are going to be horizon- tal to the selashing waves. The beautiful blue-green color of the water makes a wonderful contrast with the many differ- ent roolors of the hulls of boats. Some are yellow, red, blue and many other different shades. This sight is espe- cially beautiful at sunset or when the wind is blowing very hard and the surf is stronger than ever. People who do not live near the ocean are missing one of nature's most beautiful scenes. Betty Earls Grade 8 Mother Nature Mother Nature has a won- derful and very strange way of keeping thlngs as they should be. Not only must she think of the nresentg but, more im- oortant still she must and has to think of the future. What would hannen if Mother Nature were not wiser than we? So many seemingly unimnortant thingsrmzdo Mother Nature takes care of. Think of all the trees which are cut down each year and of all the forest land which is unnecessarily burned. How much thoughtckawe give to reforestation? Look at our beautiful island which was ravaged by fire a few years ago! Isn't Mother'Nature trying hard to make up for man's thoughtlessness? Mother Nature has many ways in whichshexnay reforest. One useful little helper is the squirril, Particularly the grey squirrel. He is some- what like a dog. He buries his over sunoly of seeds, acorns, and nuts. Very often, he does not find his food again or perhaps he never comes back to it again. The seed stays in the ground and new trees will grow. The grey squirrelis a builder of trees, even if he never knows it, These are just Q few examples of Mother Nature's alertness. How thankful we should be. Robert Fernald.'52 What Time is it, Anyway?

COACH REDMOND SPEAKS J The 1950-51 basket ball season ended with a record of 7 wins and 10 losses. On paper this record doesn't appear to be very good, 'Howovor, taking everythink into consideration, I firmly believe that the team improved tremendously and did much excellent playing during the latter part of the year, We defeated two of the strong- est teams in Eastern Maine by beating Belfast andBarHarbo I' after having suffered fr-om their onslaughts the earlier part of the season, Many factors should be taken into consideration as far asthe season was concerned, First of all, we have a large new beautiful gym, which, at the first of the year, was as new to us as to the visiting team. Next season this hand- icap will not be evident, See- ond, the team was young, -with only two seniors matheroster, John Smallidgo co-captain and an outstanding rebound nan,and Snick Damon, who was onecf the better players on the squad, Sniek would have been of un- questionable value to the team had he not wrenched his knee early in the year, This fact was evident in the first Bluep H111 game whenho was only able to compete in one quarter, at which timewo were leading L5-5 With Sniek out Blue Hill ro- bounded 10 points to our three for a 16-13 half time score, Most of the boys on the squad are Sophomores and the rest Juniors. Juniors w he played good ball were J o11n Walls, truly a forward butoon- vorted tozivery superior guard John should really roll next season. Bob Doritty, a fast improving center was hot and cold all season and should be mostly het next season. This is only Bebfs second year at basketball. Barry Wood :and Bob Fornald were as unpredict - able as the weather. Barry started eff doing a good Joh in his guard position but ltill needs a little polish. Bob Fernald, a scrapper from the word ge, performed very well throughout the season but will improve with the passing o f time, Rod Smith camo out for the team late and should give the squad much needed support in the forward wall another season, Sqohomo res on the team me Gordon Gray, Peter Smallidge, Pep Wallace, Ray Smith, and David Hyde, Gordon should have two great years ahead of him. His height handicap is easily overcome by his accurate shoot- ing. Gordon averaged over 16 points a game this season and will do better next. The other Sophomore regular, Peter smauf idge, got off to a slow start but proveds his adeptness for ball handling and performed smoothly from his guard post. Peter and John should be noth- ing less than spectacular next season. Ray Smith, Pop Wall- ace and David Hyde all played well and with some much needed poise will give the squad a great boost.- Freshman, Lester Smallidge will give a few of the upper class players much competition in another year, Perhaps another factorthat should be considered is the change from the miniature gym with fish nets to the spacious new gym. During the earlypart of the season the boys didn't drive in for layups due to so many practice sessions on the Neighborhood floor. This fanpr should be no handicap when an- other season rolls around. All in all, I truly believe we had a successful season. The boys always played each game for all they were worth, which is all one should expect. How- ever, next season with goo1d luck we'll be rolling mOI'6 baskets through that 18 inch ring. My sincere thanks to Man- ager Frank Manchester and to Assistant Manager, Dick Kelley for their find and thorough co-operation through.out the season. Each performed his duty in a loyal manner and I'm sure this is truly appreciated by the squad members. Coach Redmond THE MUSTANGS OF MOUNT DESERT HIGH We started basketball practice the last of October in preparation for the opening game. Our new coach,B1ll Red- mond greeted us eighteen boys in our spacious new gym. Our season opened with a round robin. Competing in the event were Bucksport, Ellsworth, Pemetic, Bar Harbor, Stonington Brooklin and Mount Deser-t.Th1s was a good way to get acquainted with the other teams in our county.It was very successful. We started our schedulem November 28, Hampden Academy the opponent. The new gym was broken in the right way with a U2-26 victory. Our ncxt game was with George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill. We played one of our better games that night both defensively and offensively. When the final buzzer sounded the score stood 30-26 with us on top. ' The next game showed us with one of the better seams. we played all year. A fast and accurate Belfast team hande d us our first loss, 58-29. Our third victory of the season was over Dexter. In order to win this one we had to play an overtime period. In the overtime John Smallidg e poured in 5 points to pull the game out. I+?-Nfl. The next game we journeyed to Bar Harbor, only to be bad- ly defeated. It seemed a s though the Bar Harbor boy s couldn't miss as they piled it on 70-I-LO. We entertained Aroostook Gentral Institute ofMars Hill. This was a new school on our schedule. We took the game 46-37. At this point we hit a mid-season slumpbylosing five games in a row. Milo 47-25 Hampden UO-39, Buexepert 145-uf: Ellsworth 41-35, Pemetlc NQ4EL This Just about ruined our tournament chances. A determ1ned'hnmh of boys headed for Belfast to see if something could be done about the one sided U-7 record. We succeeded in beating Be lfast 48-32. Still hot from the Belfast victory we pulled one of the greatest upsets for many years. We took Bar Harbor High School 48-30. Everyone in the town of Mount Desert got a thrill out of this. Still pushing our luck we traveled to Blue Hill and came back with a hard fought game, 46-42. Almost a thousand people flocked to the crucial game with Pemeticg this one of the closest and hardest foxzght games on our schedule. It was a tough one to lose. The final score was 38-37. The last gameof the seaan was the return game a Milo. The eastern Maine cham ions gave us a shellacking, 6ELh8. Our final recordof 7 vic- tories and 9 defeats was not good enough to Het us a tourn- ament berth.

The two varsity members Ida Beale and Marilyn Robinson were acc- ompanied by Ruth Frazier, Anne Foster, Persis Cunningham, Sandra Adams, Wilma Walls, and Nancy Leland. It was decided that a girl once elected to the squad should automatically be a member as long as she is in school. The peppcrettes wercclad ins appy new uniforms of blue wool skirts and white sweaters with the initials M. D, on the front. New mcgaphones were also boughtthis year. They wish to thank the spectators for their co-operation. BATON TWIRLERS This year for the first time the school had a corps of drum majorcttes. Miss Ann Whitley from Bangor instructed the girls. The girls made their own uniforms, with the help of Mrs. Stineh- field, and had them finished in time for the last two games. The following girls were with the majorettes all year: Nancy Allen, Ellen Gonzales, Norma Cousins, Yvonne Cousins, Doris Nickerson, Marilyn McKay, Wilma Merchant, Jean Doritty, Marilyn Robinson and Leah Blanchard joined later in the year. Nancy Allen was elected drum majorctte for the band. Jean Pat Doritty Head Majorette BAND The band has shown remarkable improvement since its organ- ization last year. We have added several new members and play much more difficult music. This year the band played for all home basketball games. s This was greatly appreciated by the spectators. The band also played for the majorettes at several basketball games. On March 16 there was a combined concert of the band and chorus. At this concert,the advanced band, composed of the more skilled players, played several selections. The band played for thededication of the school on April 8, and for the one-act plays on April 13, and January 19. At present there are 32 members in the band: 13 brasses, 13 woodwinds and 6 percussions. On May 12, the band went tcB ewer to theEhstern Maine Music Festival. Therewe marched andpdayed in the parade with our staff of majorettes. We alsoperformed before the judge, on thereview- ing field and in the auditorium.

As we go along it is hoped that we may add the parallel and horizontal bars, which are great body builders, as well as a great deal of fun to use. There seemed to be a keen interest in intramural sports this year, and with another year coming, we may be able to arrange our time so that all who want to may participate. The year's program has consisted of conditioning, testing and such seasonal sports as softball, baseball, touch football, volleyball, basketball, and soccer. During the winter, the boys made good use of the new gym with apparatus work, stunts, tumb- ling, games, relays, and combatatives, as well as indoor sports, and ballroom dancing with the girls. Mr. Earl Jowdry PHYSICAL EDUCATION FOR GIRLS q The physical education program for girls has been organized and undertaken with emphasis first upon those activities and sports designed for the individual girl, and secondly, upon those activities and sports involving the group. Every girl has had an opportunity to obtain some measure of skill in the following inf dividual activities: golf, tennis, archery, apparatus work, bad- minton, shuffleboard, social dancing, and square dancing. In add- ition, all girls have had the opportunity to participate in team games, such as basketball, softball, and volleyball. There has been an intramural as well as a varsity basketball and softball program. Healthy mental and physical diversion, as well as skill in performance have been the outstanding aims of the Mt.Desert girls during this year of activity in physical education, In addition, however, they have sought and found a better understanding of the meaning and practice of tolerance, integrity, and sportsmanship, Miss Suzanne Wood PHYSICAL EDUCATION EXHIBITION On Friday evening, April M, students from all classqs pres- ented a physical education exhibition. The girls and the boys held separate programs, each one being divided into three partsg group exercises, demonstration of the use of the gym apparatus, and sports, i The girls marched in firstto martial musiq and went through precision exercises, led by Misslwood physical education instruc- tor. After the girls had left the floor, the boys ran onto the floor, and demonstrated the workout that they do each day at the beginning of their physical education classes. Then the girls displayed the usecM'the flying rings, travel- ing rings, and horse. After they had finished, the boys gave a tumbling exhibition, which consistedof forward rolls, headstands, head springs, and high diving. . The firls then played badminton and volleyball, and the boys played basketball. - The good work done by the students reflects the excellent training which they have had from Miss Wood and Mr. Jowdry, William Kimball ..... uw...- X! ff w I " f X1 fl .ff X X ff?

Mrs. Herrick: Now, Bobby, donft tell me you don'teven know Lin- coln's Gettysburg Address. ' Bobby D.: Honestly, Mrs. Herrick I didn'tpoven-know- he lived there. Upon eating at a Senior turkey supper, Austin Walls was offered more stuffing.' ' UNO, thank you,n Austin replied and then added,u and I don'tsee why the turkeys eat it either, Mrs. Herrick: Barry, what 'is the matter with you lately?' You haven't been doing any'work, I guess you haven't any spunk. Do you know what spunk'is, Barry? ' Barry W.: Why sure, it's the past tense of spank. Young John Walls was lost once in Bangor, nThere, there,n said'a passing lady, nTell me your name and I will tell your mother.n Then John cried all the harder, HCome now dear,H she said, nWhy won't you tell me your name, so I can tell your mother?n ' nThat won't do any good,U he sobbed, nShe already knows myrame.n Frank M.: Ulfm often'compared with Gregory Peck.u John W.: That's'nice.U ' ' Frank: Not very, it's my girl friend, she much prefersGregory.u It isn't that Mr, Ernest is worried abouthis past, it'sjust that there is so much of it. Mr. Coates says that he once knew a boy who was a driver that liked to weave skillfully in and out of traffic on Sunday after- noon. He was,a good boy, a fine neighbor, .and will be greatly missed. Some authority on good taste says wellqreared women do not wear slacks, but according to our observations, theyare just the ones who do wear them. ' c One day Snick Damon came to school with his hand bandaged up. Clayton asked what had happened. ' ' UI was sitting on the sofa,n said Snick, ntalking to Persis,when some kids threw a'stone right through the window, and it hit her right in the ribs H Clayton: 'Did it hurt her?n ' Snick: UNO, but it broke three of my fingersen 3 7 QgEiQQ2YfNlINAAIQQiI.QIIAIEI.'QI-,AQQIQ7'yTIg IifQgffII1 -A 1 L-I "' f-Ter-I""'7S " 'R ig '5lfffQ.RQ T -g....j I SONG HITS WORDS OR TITLES 80 LONG IT'S BEEN GOOD T0 KNOW YA ------------------ - ---- SENIORS YOU'VE BEEN GOOD TO ME ------ MR.
