The purpose of the National Honor Society is to pay tribute to those boys
and girls who are the real students and the leaders in our high schools. There
are four standards which are the basic qualifications of this society - Charac-
ter, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service.
The National Honor Society was organized in our high school in 1937 and
known as the Gilman High School Chapter. In 1949 the name was changed to the
Mount Desert Chapter. Our school enrollment is so small that, since member-
ship is based on a percentage basis of the total number of class enrollment we
never have been able to have more than four members elected from any one
class. One member is elected from the class in its junior year and three mem-
bers during the senior year.
In 1951 on Class Day of the commencement festivities the Mount Desert
Chapter of National Honor Society made its first public appearance in the form
of an initiation of its new members. An effective candle light service was used
and William Kimball, of the class of 1951, but who had been initiated during the
junior year, acted as master of ceremonies. Miss Charlotte Pressey and Miss
Norma Drummond, former National Honor Society members, assisted in this
program. Those initiated at this time were Ida Beale, Jean Graves, and Lillis
Joy of the class of 1951. The junior member was Anne Foster, class of 1952.
Those new members elected in 1952 are Norma Cousins, Sheila Graves,
and Sylvia Leland. The junior member is Raymond Smith.

The .Tumor Class as you can see
Is really very good
We have the best of boys and g1rls
As all the classes should
We have the best of talent
In basketball and plays
Our Majorettes and cheerleaders
Are all slulled 1n the1r ways
Before school 1n the Iumor room
There s many a shre1k and cry
But when asked for recmtatxons
You d tlnnk that we were shy
Then goes the teacher from the room
To get a drxnk of water
Someone starts a do1ng th1ngs
He knows he hadn t oughta
It s Just the same w1th all of us
We seem to squ1rm and w1ggle
We slmply can t control ourselves
When someth1ng makes us g1ggle
Now please don t take me wrong my fr1ends
It 1sn t that we re bad
It s Just that we weren t made to be
Metmculous and sad

BA EBALL SQUAD
Only one player was missing when the baseball went out
this spring. An all veteran nine will represent Mt. Desert
after a good record of eight victories and five defeats last
year. Since every player has had at least one year's experi-
ence at his position, a good hitting club is in evidence. Gor-
don Gray and Rodney Smith round out a two man mound staff
that compares with any in smaller school competition. They
will divide additional duty on the infield when not pitching.
Peter Smallidge has improved very much to make a good re-
ceiver. Dwight Carter will aid in this department. The infield
has .Tohn Walls returning at first base, Robert Fernald at sec-
ond, Barry ferrorlessl Wood at shortstop, and Robert Doritty,
utility. All are seniors and veterans. The outfield has Burnham
Wallace and David Hyde returning, two boys who form a nucle-
us for a good outer pasture. Other boys hustling to oust the
veterans include .Tay Scribner, Langill Stanley, Gary Tyler,
Ronnie Musetti, Robert Sangier, a transfer student, and helpful
Frank Manchester. Richard Kelley and Henry Scribner are the
managers. What record lies ahead? Hard work, lady luck, per-
centage, and the Louisville slugger will give the final answer.

GIRL ' BASKETBALL
The Mt. Desert Girls' Varsity Basketball squad was organized
in late November. Marjorie Gilley was elected Captain and Gertrude
Hamblen, acting Manager and Scorer.
The schedule for the season included two games with Ellsworth,
two with Pemetic, two with Blue Hill, two with Bucksport and one
with the Faculty.
After a total of three hours practice, the team were hosts to the
Ellsworth sextet. It was an all-around-well-played game with a
final score of Mt. Desert 54, Ellsworth 47. It might be well to men-
tion here that a score in the fifties in women's basketball is indica-
tive of considerable skill, since only three members of the team are
in a position to shoot. On Dec. 19, the team journeyed to Pemetic
and met defeat with a final tally of Pemetic 24, Mt. Desert 18. The
Pemetic lassies are to be commended for a well played, clean and
fast style of basketball. Jan. 10th found Mt. Desert at home to
Bucksport. Here again was an interesting game to watch. The teams
were evenly matched and played a similar style of ball which ended
in a tie -- 32-32. In women's basketball, a tie stands as such, and
in the case of tournament play, another game is arranged instead of
engaging in an overtime. Jan. 12th marked the game with the faculty,
the proceeds of which benefited the March of Dimes. The Down 'n
Outers produced such hot shots as Jowdry, Coates, Redmond, and
Carter -- not to mention high scorers as Potter and Stinchfield.

VAR lll CHEERLEADER
Eight cheerleaders made up the varsity group of the Mount Desert Pepper-
ettes this year. Anne Foster, head cheerleader, Nancy Allen, Sylvia Leland,
Marilyn Robinson, Nancy Leland, Wilma Walls, Helen Cameron, and Sandra
Adams. The first of the season Anne Foster had to drop out, so we again chose
a head cheerleader, Nancy Allen. This left us with only seven.
Six new girls were chosen this year by the varsity squad to represent the
Jayvees. The girls were Audrey Leach, head cheerleader, Helen Fernald,
Judy Jordan, Nancy Jenkins, Marguerite Ashley, and Claire Lunt.
The girls worked hard all year and were very co-operative in trying to
make the team a success. We were very fortunate in having new uniforms, blue
and white, the school colors. I hope the girls of the Jayvee cheering squad in
the future, practice, and have as much fun as we did.

MOUNT DE ERT BA D
We have a growing band at Mt. Desert High. Though it has been organized
only a few years, at the present time we have about forty members. Many of
the children in the elementary schools are being trained for band work when
they enter high school.
Mr. Paul Leeman is our new band instructor and under his leadership
we feel that much progress has been made. The band has played at all pro-
grams presented to the public, and as an added attraction has played at all
home basketball games.
For the first time band-officers were elected this year. They are as
follows: President, Jane Brown, Secretary and Treasurer, Lester Smallidgeg
Librarian, Steve Miller, Manager, Ernest Coombsg and assistant manager,
The members of the band want to express their appreciation to the com-
munities of Mt. Desert for their interest in helping raise money for our uni-
forms. They have been ordered and though they have not yet arrived, we hope
to have them for the Music Festival in May.

directed by our new music teacher, Mr. Paul Leeman.
On December eighth the glee club presented an operetta, 'The White
Gypsy." The operetta was much more effective, because of the bright-
colored costumes which were made by the Home Economic girls under
the direction of Mrs. Stinchfield. Much time and hard work was spent
We prepared a musical program for Parent Teachers' Association
meeting held at Mount Desert in May for all the associations of Mt.
We also participated in the Eastern Music Festival held at the Uni-

went to help some school projects. The club plans to spend its money in the
treasury for stage equipment, and especially lights. Altogether the club has
had a very successful year.

CAMERA CL B
After a year of being handicapped by the lack of adequate facilities, a newly
decorated and thoroughly equipped darkroom has stimulated interest in the Camera
Club. Membership has gradually increased to twenty-three students. The Club
meets regularly each Wednesday to carry out a course of instruction in Photo-
graphic Techniques based on a series of lessons developed by the Eastman Kodak
Company for the use of school clubs.
The subjects covered in the course are, the Camera and its use, the processing
of the negative, printing both contact prints and enlargements, the light meter, color
film and how to use it, and the finishing and mounting of prints. Each member is
expected to develop his own film and from it make and finish both prints and enlarge-
The appreciation of the Camera Club is extended to Mr. Jerome Knowles and Dr.
G. Merrill Haskell for their interest and personal efforts in making our darkroom
facilities equal to, if not better than those of any High School in the State.

My uncle' my dear deported uncle
Long years behlnd bars he has spent
And stlll he stralns h1s weary mmd
And wonders why he was sent
I know he s lonesome though he looks
As cheerful as can be
He says he can get out on ball
If someone should raxse the fee
My uncle' my poor deluded uncle
H15 halr 15 almost gray
For cr1me commltted by someone else
Why does he have to pay?
They say he stole one brlght June day
H15 slster s household deed
But how could he know what he'd done
If he couldn't even read?
The Jury heavens' forgxve
Thls errlng l1p 1ts smlles

Wlthm a hundred mlles
They sent h1m to a secluded spot
"Twas ln h1s thlrtleth June "
And gave to hlm as the rules requlred
' strlped sult and a roo
To make h1m confess It all
They penned h1m up they chamed hlm down
To keep hlm wlthln the wall
They took hrs clothes they shaved h1s halr
They even took hls gm
Oh never mortal suffered more
In penance for a sln
Day after day wh1le the sun was hxgh
They kept hlm as busy as could be
When mght t1me came they locked hmm
Afrald that he mlght flee
Ah saxd my uncle as he took
The hammer ln hxs hand
' What a way to end your l fe
In th1s so called free land '
Alas nor charlot nor barouche
Nor bandlt cavalcade
Could tear hmm lose from out th1s Ja1l
In any kmd of rald

BIOGRAPHY OF THE SOPHOMORE
You've all heard of
but have you ever led one? No' Well
then you don'tbelong to the Sophomore
Class of Mt Desert Hmgh If thls keeps
up much longer we'll all start barklng
In fact we have every reason to belleve
there s a plan afootto put us m akennel
It's a rule ln our school that each
class takes 1ts turn bemg flrst mlme for
the lunch room Week by week day by
day we have the honor but a satls
factxon to the 1nner man as well
Yes many tlmes we've looked for
ward to thattlme when we shall stand 1n
the front ranks only to dlscover that
our much antlcxpated week 15 that of
Vacatlon 1s over We came back to
atlong last' When the noon bell rmgs we
race to the door fxrst ln lme only to
be pushed back to the very end by the
was last week Smce that was vacat1on
Freshmen come to the front Sopho
ores go to the end of the lme "
Dejected we obey orders at last
everone else IS served and wlth what
strength we have left we pass over our
bowl What ms that we see? Is lt?
Can xt be? It ls! A whole pea flotamng
around ln that watered soup' And yes
one whole sllce of bread left on the
table Everyone sples It at once wtth
revenous growls we all swoop down up
on lt at the same tlme and each comes
up wlth nothmg but scratched Imgers
Some clever dog succeeded ln p1efer
1ng 1t rlght out from under our noses
How much longer can thxs go on? If we
could only fmd a master-'P
It was on that memorable day that
Mount Desert H1gh School was dedn
cated After the ceremonxes were over
I strolled mto the corrxdors to see what
I could glean from the Lmpresslons and
comments made at random by the many
guests who swarmed over the entlre
bulldmg At the trophy cabmet near the
front door was a young mother and her
Small son peermg very lntently at the
photographs there many of whlch were
of the 1919 vmtage In a moment the
mother tn a most enthuslastlc manner
and tone urged the lxttle boy to take par
t1cularnot1ce 'Look saxd she "the
IS a pxcture of grandpa when he was ln
hxgh school Doesn't he 1O0kI11C67" Aft
er a momentof snlence came the rather
nalve reply "He may have looked good
then but he doesn't look so good now
op What would you do 1fI'dk1ss you'?'
Martha I'd yell
Sxlence Aklss Sxlence
Martha 'I'm stlll hoarse from last
School g1rl ' I wonder what's the matter
wlth our star basketballplayer 9 He looks
Frxend "It's because hxs father IS a

Mr Redmond Th1s sure IS a n1ce llttle

The U N sent an army
Of those men we hold so dear
Across the wrde Pacxflc
To a country named Korea
Why was an army sent there
To thxs land across the sea'7
What IS the cause of th1s new
What can the reason be?
Shortly after World War Two
Wlth much left undeclded
Koreans d1d not get along
So North and South dlvlded
Stmll searchmg for an answer
Was the reason Soclallsm
Usual d1fference of op1n1on
The threat of Commun1sm'P
Some thmk they know the answer
It's not for me to say
I rn sure we'll all know more
Ten years from today
Regardless ofthe causes
We're now engaged ln war
Wlth more and worse atrocltles
Than the last world confllct saw
Who are flghtlng slde by slde
Unlted toward a common goal
And to thrs goal ablde
The navy standlng by off shore
The army on the land
The alrforce flghtmng 1n the sky
All vltal for our stand
Over hllls and down through
On through drlvlng ralns
Fought our troops wh1le hopmg
Success1ve worthwh1le gams
Forever flghtmg through the day
Toward the goal ahead
Often sleep1ng through the nlght
Among those who are dead
We'd forced back the
We'd blocked the Russlans too
Then came the Chmese Communltst
Who sent our ranks askew
Next came unmerc1ful wmter
Came also heavy snow
Our brave men suffered mlserably
As temperatures went below
I seems that peace talks"
W1th leaders of the natlons
When somethmg always happens
Whlch stops negotmatlons
Dear God we pray protect
Whom to th1s war we send
And also may eternal peace
Arrxve wlth thls war s end
Flrst It rams and then It snows
And then the sun shlnes br1ght
The afternoon goes very fast
And then dear me 1t's n1ght

MEMORIES OF A TELEPHONE
Belng a telephone operator can be an
eXC1t1I1gJ0b as well as a tlresome one
I soon found out that xt works both ways
especxally 1n a small town off1ce For
example take that day when I had Just
learned to operate a swrtchboard It was
about the flrst tlme I had ever been left
alone I was belng really busy wlth
the average one call an hour but even
that one made me nervous as I hadn't
had any exper1ence

Fmally I quleted down and began
handlmg that one call an hour rather con
fxdently Thls d1dn't last long how
ever I got a slgnal and answered the
call to hear an exclted woman's volce
yelllng at me to call the flre department
qulckly because her ch1ldren had set
the curtalns on flre I never knew those
words flre department could be so ex
cltmg I rushed from my chaxr to push
the button to the flre alarm then I started
answermg call after call By the tlme
everybody mn town had hxs cur1os1ty sat
1sf1ed I can truthfully say thatI had had
exper1ence 1n telephone operatlng
As I look back I th1nk of the f1rst
tlme I worked all nlght 1n the telephone
offlce It d1dn't seem funny that nlght
but I laugh when I thmk of lt now Ever
yone kept askmg me mf I would be scared
to stay alone atmght andl bravely sald
'Not at all After the calls for the day
had subslded to a mlnxmum lt seemed
tlme for me to make the necessary prep
aratlons to go to bed In bed I began
thlnklng about what would happen and
how scared I would probably be nf the
mght alarm suddenly boomed forth 1n the
mlddle of the nxght Agaln I can truth
ful say that that was the flrst day that I
ever stayed awake for twenty four hours
Then I thmk of the txme I had wltha
French woman over the telephone One
would never guess that she had been ln
the Unlted States for slx months by the
way she talked Wlthout any exag
geratlon I know I asker her fwe tlmes
what she wanted She became more and
more Lnfurlated and I became more and
more exasperated trylng to understand
what she was talklng about Fmally
she asked me 1fI was stupxd and I told
her we d1dn't have that lnformatlon I
wangled my way out of that sltuatlon and
many more afterwards and as a result
I have learned that experlence xs the
Mrs Stmchfmeld But I 1ns1st It was
Mr Coates 'No my dear lady It was
my fault I could tell your car was bemg
drxven by a woman at least 300 feet a
