Among the teams played, only two, Pemetic and Ellsworth were able to beat us twice, which was justenough to keep us out of the tournament. We defeated all other teams at least once and held double wins over Bar Harbor and Sumner. We had an unusually fine group of boys on our squad. Capt. Peter Smallidge led us to many vic- tories with his adept shooting, steady ball handling, excellent defensive play and fine team work. Peter is headed for Maine Maritime Academy where I'm sure he'll have just as much success. Two other seniors that will be greatly missed come graduation are Pop Wallace and Gordon Gray. Both of these players kept us in the running all season with their accurate shooting and ex- cellent team work. Each boy averaged about 18 points per game. One game, I recall, we won by a score of 64-58, Gordon and Pop having a total of 53 points between them. Other seniors that gave a serviceable account of themselves when the need arose were Ray Smith and Dwight Carter. These boys always gave all they had and certainly pulled us through in many tight contests. Their rebounding cer- tainly was not unnoticed, especially during games with Sumner and Blue Hill. Underclassmen returning next season who have shown great promise include Jay Scribner, Gary Tyler, Ronnie Musetti and Lester Smallidge. Jay is as adept and illusive as basketball players go and should be a fine leader next season. With every game Gary Tyler showed great improvement and will be an alert center. Left-handed Ronnie Musetti has already proved his skill at hitting the net and will, undoubtedly, improve as the season progresses. Lester Smallidge began to show what he could do by out-rebounding Hampden and Lubec for two most important wins. Other prospects for the coming seasons are Bobby Smallidge, Maynard Pettee, Jim Hooper, Bryant Nicholson, Twins, Duane Jenkins and Jimmy Smallidge. Mgr. Henry Scribner accepted his responsibility sincerely and was truly a faithful servant for the team throughout the season. Hank will really be hard to replace. Finally, I should like to express my appreciation and offer my sincere thanks to all for a most co-operative and exciting season. I can truly say I'm overjoyed with the sportsmanship exhibited during the season. Let's all hope and pray that these attitudes will stay with us wherever we go.

Desert Junior High School and for Stetson fifth and sixth grades. Kelley Auditorium and the Stetson gymnasium were utilized. Games with Southwest Harbor, Ellsworth, and Bar Barbor were played. Although the season was not successful as far as won and lost games are con- cerned, the boys played hard and clean ball, practiced faithfully, and promise to be good material for future Mt. Desert High School teams. With each game came improvement from experience, with each practice, a greater understanding of basketball and the importance of fundamentals.

The two veterans are Gordon Gray and Pop fsneaking dustl Wallace. Although we have lost most of our team through graduation, this is the largest and youngest squad in recent years. All nine positions are open and there are twenty-two boys to fill them. Since we have had our new ball field, we have had the impressive record of eighteen wins and five losses. We reached the quarter finals in the semi- finals in the state tournament in 1951 and the semi-finals in 1952. With agreat deal of hustling teamwork and desire, a successful season should be evident in 1953. Those reporting with their spikes, caps, gloves, etc. , are as follows: Gordon Gray, Pop Wallace, Torn Conary, Tete Carter, Ron Mussetti, Gary Tyler, Hank Scribner, Steve Miller, Joel Atwood, "The Taylor Twins, " Duane Jenkins, James Hooper, Nick Nicholson, Dale Lurvey, and Dana Sherer. These players will provide our coach with nine starters, thirteen benchwarmers, and twenty-two "headaches . " WHITNEY'S ELECTRIC CO.

GIIHS' BASKHIlAll Early in November the girls became impatient for basketball, but practise didn't begin until the end of the month. Eleanor Reynolds was elected captain this year, and Helen Cameron, manager and scorer. The girls practised only a few times during Activity Period on Wednesdays before their first game, which was on December 31. Lacking a scorer and four players, Mt. Desert was defeated 52-51 by Sullivan. The team decided to get down to business on January 7, when they met Blue Hill here at home. The final score was 53-47, Mt. Desert's favor. On January 14, at Pemetic, a hard game followed. Our girls suffered a second loss, 26-21. No excuses this time, those Pemetic girls certainly have no flies on them! A week later, January 21, Mt. Desert made the trip to Ellsworth's gym to see what they could do. The team worked hard, but nevertheless were toppled 40-31 by the Ellsworth club. Ells- worth deserves credit for being such a speedy, smooth ball-handling club. Determined now to add another victory to their list, Mt. Desert invited Sullivan down for a return game on January 30. Mt. Desert came our triumphant, the score was 33-19. Pemetic came to Kelly Gym on February 4 and took the game 38-20. February 11 brought the big home game. The snappy Ellsworth club fought hard, but our own girls fought harder, and the score was 40-38 when the final buzzer sounded. The last game was a victory, making four wins for the team, leaving four losses. February 18 Bar Harbor was beaten 32-22. by the Mount Desert team. Miss Wood deserves a special "Thank You" for all her time and work, and the girls should rate our thanks, too. They really did work hard to hold the big teams, but all the team members will admit that it was a lot of fun. Compliments of BEAL'S JEWELRY STORE INC.

This year the new mem- bers are Betty Murrell, Elaine Higgins, and Crosby Fernald.

We have lost a few members by the wayside, but as a whole the interest has been high. Our first appearance of the year was at the first basketball game on Thanks- giving Eve, and we made our debut with all new music. At the next game we com- menced the procedure of marching in with the majorettes, cheer leaders, and the players. This innovation was well received and made an excellent impression on both audience and the visiting team. In addition to playing at all the basketball games the band played for several other occasions including the spring concert and also attended the Eastern Maine Music Festival which was held at Skowhegan, Maine, on May 23.

As a result, the shutterbugs have increased greatly since last yearg and we of the Camera Club hope they continue to do so. The subject of study for that division was picture taking.

Compliments of SACHMAN'S MEN'S STORE Bar Harbor, Maine J DRIVER IHAININII .X X.. M . gt' H Driver education has been in our curriculum for three years as an elective. It is a combination of road practice and classroom instruction, although the latter is limited because of the time allotted in the school program. It is taught during the activity period, five days a week, giving the twelve students enrolled each semester about fifteen minutes of behind-the-wheel driving. These students have the privilege of trying for a license at the conclusion of the course. Parents must remember that these students are not expert drivers when they finish the course, but they have received instructions leading to the development of proper driving habits and attitudes. When they leave the school car for the family car, they are, in most cases, going to an unfamiliar vehicle. Therefore, they need additional guidance and patience. There should be no night driving until more experience is attained. Most of us, after 100, O00 miles behind the wheel, are not experts. Please don't expect these students to be experts after eighty hours of practice. "If we are not turning out experts, then why have the course?" our critics ask. Any progress to cut down our accident rate in our 15, Z5 year old groups is worthwhile. The State of Maine records show that less than three-tenths of 1 per cent of all the students trained have been involved in any accident. Even with this record our insurance rates continue to rise. As long as our law allows fifteen year olds to drive, we must do all we can to save their lives and protect our property. The cost of the course is comparatively small. The cost per student will average about S5. A new Ford V-8 is furnished each year by the Morang-Robin- son Co. of Bar Harbor and the general care of the car is given by Manchester Bros. of Northeast Harbor at no extra cost. The facilities of the two establish- ments are available at all times. The course is sponsored by the American Automobile Association with an A.A.A. trained instructor. Compliments of A.E.

Music was furnished by our Stardusters and refreshments were served in the cafeteria. October 30-31, 1952 Ahh, two whole days off!

December 9 For this ball game we journeyed to Bar Harbor where we proved our skill by a score of 55-39. December 12 The juniors had a Christmas social with colored lights and a Christmas tree. December 16 Grab your hat and megaphone. We're on our way to Pemetic to battle the Indians. Quite a battle, too. Oh yes, the score: Pemetic 49-Mt. Desert 44. December 19 Bucksport came down to see us tonight. They gave us a tough time, sure enoughg but when that fateful fourth quarter was over, the score read Mt. Desert 61--Golden Bucks 54. December 19-28 Merry Christmas to you. Just think! A whole week off. See you next year--fget itl? December 31 We're on the road to Ellsworth to play Sumner High.

February 20 The annual Sophomore Hop was held tonight in the Auditorium. Music was furnished by the Coasters. February Z0-Z7 Vacation, vacation! Another one is here! Gee, we must work those poor teachers to death. March 6 Tonight the Hi-Y Club played the faculty in a spectacular game of basket- ball. Proceeds of the game went to the Polio fund.

Vonnie Cousins '53 46 lllll-Hlllllll Slowly, slowly as if knowing that something was wrong, I opened my eyes. Eyes that had been closed for, for how long? I did not know. Had it been seconds, minutes, days, hours, years, centuries? I had no way of telling. Nevertheless, I opened them, or, else should lsay, they opened. I seemed to have no control on them. I looked around me. It was dark. Not a clear black dark- ness, but a haze, a dim foggy haze. Not knowing, or caring, what to do, I lay there until my eyes, sore as they were, grew accustomed to the lack of light. I looked up, straight up, and saw--nothing. Nothing but blankness. I tried to turn my head a pain shot through my skull and neck. My next move was to sit, or to try to sit. I did, however, succeed in getting my- self into a pose similar to an upright position. So, balancing myself on two extremely shaky and bruised arms, I swung my legs, which up until now, had been extended flat before me, around until they were hanging in mid-air. I bent my knees and let my feet drop. Again a pain consumed me, this time from my toes to the very tip of my much matted hair. Being careful to move with strict caution, I slowly massaged the mus- cles in the back of my neck until I could move my head with ease. I looked around me. Where in blazes was I? Nothing seemed fa- miliar. How did I get here? ? There were lots more questions in my mind, but loudest and foremost was, . . Where am I? At this point, I got the bright idea in my much rattled brains to get up. That is, if there was any floor in this , . .this, what! My body, however, had other ideas, it wanted rest. Ilayback down again trying to think, to figure things out. Where was I? ? ? ?I-low did I get here? ? The more I puzzled, the more tired I got. My ears buzzed, my limbs dropped numblike lead weights, into their proper places on the table top. My head throbbed. Instinctively, my eyelids closed. No! I couldn't rest until I found out. Where was I" How did I get here? I HAD TO KNOW! But I couldn't re- sist. There was some strange power over me. Without warning, I became tired, so tired that nothing mattered any more. All I wanted to do was to sleep. I needed peace. Sleep. . . Sleep . . . . . . the eternal peace. Slowly, steadily, it engulfed me. Sleep, how restful, to both mind and body to sleep, to sleep how long? Forever? Vonnie Cousins '53 SKATING The sky is black as velvet cloth, The ice is smooth as glass. Each lad glides by and on his arm, A sparkling little lass. The screech of skates, the crunch of ice, The crackle of the blaze, The laughter of the girls and boys, the "hooplas" and "hoorays". The roasting hot dogs o'er the flame, The sturdy fire of oak. The clinging scent blends with the night, The smell of woody smoke. These senses of the skating pond, Could never quite compete, With the startling, painful accident Of landing on your seat. Sally Scarborough '55 WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS Your name is Nick Kent. You are an F. B. I. agent, and you're scared to death. You crouch behind a tombstone in the city, cemetery, waiting, watch- ing, fearing---fearing, the horror that's sure to come. Suddenly, you hear a sound in the sky. Soft, steady, like the droning of a thousand bees. And then it comes into sight. You know now it was nota dream - it was not a hoax. The flying saucers are real, because youlre watch ing one with your own eyes! You'll be the first man on earth to prove flying saucers exist. Your hand trembles as you grip your revolver tightly. Deep down in heart things bullets cannot harm. Silently, the black ship lands only a few feet from where you crouch. A huge heavy door ponderously swings open. Your heart forgets to beat as you realize that you are about to set eyes upon the creatures who man the flying saucers. And then you see it! A sight almost too horrible to bear. You jam your fist into your mouth to choke the cry you dare not utter, but can't control. For the things that emerge from the strange ship are the most loathsome apparitions your mind can conceive.

Compliments of LUCHINI'S RESTAURANT For a few moments a deadly quiet fills the graveyard, and only the sight of the waiting saucer con- vinces you that you really saw what your stunned brain refuses to be- lieve. Then,slowly, the ground begins to rise over each grave. You know the climax is at hand! Where the slimy creatures from the saucer had sunk a moment before, men and women rise up, bathed in the eerie light of the midnight moon. They slowly make their way to the gaping mouth of the waiting ship. In that split second you know what you have to dog there's no time for hesitation no time for turning back! You say to yourself, "I've got to enter that saucer with them." You gamble that you won't be noticed. It is a desper- ate gamble for your life is at stake.

Sally Scarborough '55 Compliments of FREEMAN'S STORE Southwest Harbor, Maine IKLLSND UK ENEMY The moon rose large and threat- eningly over the tree:-tops. Its full- ness resembled an ominous balloon sailing over the country as if it were hunting for danger. And as it rose higher and higher, the trees seemed to take on immense, grotesque shapesg shapes of weird skeletons waving their bony arms around. Only occasionally was there a slight murmur of abreeze. Or was it that these horrible forms were real, not jgust the trees, and that the sound was their moaning, their way of telling the woods that they were boss? Jeannie wondered as she slowly made her way homeward. Why oh why had she stayed so late? Why did she have to walk this long threatening path alone? She thought of these as a form of relief to keep her mind away from the wind, the trees, and the moon. What was that noise! Jeannie stop- ped short. Listen, there it is again! Slowly it came again -- a LONG shrill noise similar to a scream. Jeannie felt a tightening in her throat as she looked around her. The sound continued for only a moment, then silence. Then pat, pat, pat, pat. She turned first to the right, then to the left. Suddenly she gasped, for be- hind her she could see a shadow ap- proaching. That could mean only one thingg she was being followed. Should she run? She tried to scream but some- thing stuck in her throat. No, No. The only sensible thing to do was to remain calm and walk on as if she suspected nothing. She tried this. For a while it was MAURICE J. FINESON all right. Then, gradually, she began to walk faster. When she realized what she was doing, she slowed down. She noticed that whoever or whatever was behind her sped up or slowed down as she did. Fear mounted anew in her. Finally, when she could remain calm no longer, Jeannie started running. The thing behind her started running, too. But, after experimenting, she found relief in the fact that her follow- er remained the same distance behind her ----- speeding as she ran, slowing as she walked. This was encouraging. If she reached home. If-if-if ........ Again she ran. Ran on and on, hearing the coming footsteps behind her, but not daring to turn around to look. After what seemed like ages, she saw the lights of town ahead. Now to make it home. But she was so out of breath, she had to stop to rest. She stopped, held her breath for an in- stance, and listened. She looked be- hind her. Wait, something about that shadow looked familiar. So, as if she had been told that her fears were foolish, she stood and waited. She was right. The mysterious approacher was still coming. When it came into view, Jeannie gave a cry of both surprise and relief. For what should be follow- ing her but Jiggers, her own pet dog. So, feeling greatly relieved and somewhat ashamed of herself, Jeannie trudged along toward home. However, for the rest of the journey, her mys- terious follower was by her side as if he were protecting her against some unseen enemy. Vonnie Cousins '53 WARREN KAY VANTINE STUDIO "The Class Ring Man" 51 132 Boylston Street 374 Center Street Bangor Boston Massachusetts T RAPPER AGAINST WOLVE RINE Jacob's lead dog, Jack, had al- ready started to bark as they approach- ed the trapline. Jacob was a Danish trapper who was trapping on a north- ern trapline in the mid-eastern part of Greenland. When they drew near enough to the trap to see it, the only thing that were visible were bits of fur and spots of blood. When Jacob saw this, he muttered disgustedly to himself, "It's that wolverine again. I'll have to hunt him down and kill him or I'll be much in debt from the loss of my fur." You may think that this would be like hunting a deer, but you would be mistaken because all a deer will do is run. A wolverine, on the other hand, especially one with cubs, will fight to the death. It was a cold winter day as most mornings are in Greenland, and Jacob was setting out to kill the wolverine with grave determination. Jacob had a definite, although dangerous, plan in his mind this morning. He would go to the area of his traps which were being most frequently robbed. The one thing he did not like about his plan was that he would have to leave his dogs be- hind, therefore, gun in hand, he set out across the snow. He almost felt happy because he loved nature very much. When he reached the trap, he intended to try to kill the wolverine. He took out of his pack a squirrel, UNIVERSITY CAP 8: GOWN CO. 486 Andover Street Lawrence Massachusetts 52 which was in a small cage, and was to be used as bait for the wolverine. Jacob then padded the jaws of the trap with cotton, for he didn't want the squirrel to die before that night when the wolverine came out to hunt. Jacob then prepared for the night by setting up a small blind a little way downwind from the trap. M Since the Arctic night was almost as bright as day, Jacob would have no trouble seeing the wolverine. He wait- ed about a half hour before he saw the wolverine. It looked like a large fox except that it was heavily built and had heavy paws and long claws. Its jaws were rather large with shark- like teeth. The squirrel, which Jacob had attached to the trap, tried vainly to escape from the wolverine. In the meantime, Jacob was taking careful aim .with his rifle. This was very dangerous, for if he missed the first one or two shots, he might not get another one. He knew that if you only would the wolverine, it will attack you. Jacob had the wolverine lined up in his sights now and his gun went off with a sharp crack, which broke the stillness of the Arctic night. Quickly, he saw that he had only wounded the wolverine. He grabbed his knife from a stump which he had put there as an extra precaution. In an instant the wolverine was upon him. He felt a Compliments of LAKIN'S EXPRESS Ellsworth, Maine sharp pain as the wolverine sank his teeth into his shoulder. He plunged his knife again and again into the wolverine as he fought for life. Fin- ally, the wolverine fell limp. Jacob discovered that his shoulder was numb and his left arm was broken. He knew if he did not get warmth or food some- how, he would soon freeze to death. Therefore, he got to his feet and start- ed to stagger towards his cabin. Jacob fell and stumbled many times on his way home, but finally made it. The cabin was dark as he approached, but the dogs were barking loudly. It was very cold as he went into the cabin, but he did not bother to light a fire, he just crawled into his sleeping bag and went to sleep. The next morning Jacob felt very stiff and his arm was badly swollen. Jacob managed to turn on his short- wave radio which had a sender and a receiver. He turned on the sender and called a flying doctor who said he would come to help him. He somehow felt better after that and although he had lost his rifle he knew that wolverine would never hunt another animal nor steal from his traps. Yes, trapping would be much better in the future. Steve Coffin '58 THE SAD SURPRISE As our story begins, we find Mrs. Hilton talking with her neighbor, Mr. Green, who is working in his garden. She is talking about the girl who lives down the street, the "bad girl" who drinks, had wild parties, and does all the things that "nice people" don'tdo. "I'm telling you, that girl ought to be run out of town. She is a disgrace to our community and is setting a poor example for our children." No- sooner has she said these words when she sees her young daugh- ter running down the hill to meet her. She starts to cross the street at the foot of the hill and does not see the large truck rushing toward her. The driver sees her but not in time to stop. The mother screams but can do nothing as she sees her child meet what is sure to be instant death. Sud- denly from the sidewalk near the child comes a girl running to push the child to safety not a minute too soon. Then she stumbles, and she herself falls before the on rushing truck. Mrs. Hilton runs to her child and embraces her happily laughing and crying at the same time. "Who was that dear brave girl who gave her life to save my child"? Her neighbor shakes his head sad- ly as he covers the poor mangled body of the heroine. "That was the 'bad girl who lives down the street. !" Ellen Gonzales '54 A SECRET REVEALED When the new, ambitious young minister, the Reverend Mr. Buck- minister, arrived at his new parish in the 'small village, he was very curious and eager to learn just what kind of people he had inherited as a parish and just what would be expect- ed of him. There wasn't too much to be told, the parish had carried on for the past twenty-five years in much the same way, with little change. Will Jones, nearly seventy, had been su- perintendent of the Sunday Schoolever since anyone could remember. Will Jones had taken the offering in church ever since anyone could remember. Come to think of it, Will Jones had also been treasurer of both Sunday School and the church ever since any- one could remember. Mr. Buckmin- ister decided Will Jones was the man to meet. He learned he was also cashier of the one and only bank in town. Upon meeting Will, the new minister, taking a mental inventory, decided it was time for a change. When he went home, he told his wife his project was redecorating the church from beginning to end. Itin- volved not only new paint, new lights, and new organ, but also replacing some of the moveable two-legged fixtures, beginning with Will Jones. Yes, he had found Will a friendly, kindly, likeable old soul with one of those faces that seem to reflect spiritual goodness. But when anyone tells you he's been Sunday School superintendent for thirty-three years and expects to round out forty, it is time that something should be done, particularly when you find that the Sunday School is being carried on as it had been when Will was a little boy in knee breeches. However, as time went on, this well-meaning young man found it was easier to formulate his plans than to carry them out. After all, all the parishioners, though the number was much smaller than it should have been, were quite happy under the old leader- ship. Everything went along in an easy kind of way without any bother to them. Besides, who in the world wanted to be superintendent of the Sunday School? That meant getting up on Sunday morn- ing. Also, it had been rumored often that the janitor sometimes didn't ar- rive, whereupon that service fell to the superintendent. When Mr. Buck- minister inquired into that, Will tried to quiet any rumor by explaining Ben was getting old and sometimes wasn't able to get there, but that he needed the job. From the financial point of view they couldn't very well take this away from him. That was dropped until old Ben started ringing the bell on Saturday instead of Sunday and starting the furnace anytime dur- ing the week. The tolling of the bell was a bit confusing to the community, and starting the fire was a little hard on the church budget, and even Will agreed it might prove disastrous to the church some day. So it was de- cided Ben would have to be retired and Will would take over. This was indeed puzzling to Mr. Buckminister. He de- cided Will was greedy and a miser. He had to admit he had no idea whom he could get to take the janitorship, but why should the cashier of the bank have this pittance they paid? Miserly! He'd never heard of his doing anything for the community in a charitable way . . . . . . and another thing, the slipshop way the finances were handled! Never any real accounting for the funds. Will handled them all, and everyone had accepted the figures he had given them without question. Mrs. Buckminister came home one day, after making her rounds, with astounding information. She had discovered this village had its share of poverty, but when she inquired about charitable organizations, she found there were none. The people felt few improvements could be made. When the needy got to rock bottom, the grocers seemed to take over and no one went hungry, the old cobbler didn't do good enough work for the elite, but he took care of the less fortunate, cheaply and well enough. The young minister had been there six months and there were no notice- able changes. He was hiding his time. Accounts couldn't go unaccounted for indefinitely. Some day he would burst like an atom bomb in that little com- munity. QA Sunday morning dawned bright and beautiful. Time for Sunday School found the children in their places at the church. The teachers were there, but no superintendent. Where was Will? Come to think of it, they didn't believe they'd heard the church bell. One of the teachers rose to the occa- sion and carried on the ChurchSchool. After it was over and just before the service began, the place was filled with an atmosphere of awe. It seemed impossible but it was true. Will Jones had suddenly passed away that morn- ing. As time went on, his place in the various church offices were filled by men to the liking of the minister. Will had been looked upon as indispensable by his friends, but they were learning no one was indispensable. The min- ister was proving his point. , But one day someone looked in on Old Ben at Home. What? He was there with no food, no money. What had hap- pened? Then the mystery began to un- ravel. Will had done the janitor work but had given the money to Ben. Gro- ceries stopped being delivered to the needy. Will had been ordering them and paying the bills. Children could no longer go to the old cobbler and have their shoes mended. Will was not there to make up the deficit. So that was the secret of what the min- ister had fingermarked as miserly? That was the reason Will had never owned a car. That accounted for the fact that he'd worn the same shiny threadbare suit ever since anyone could remember. Will had been taken for granted. No one had ever done anything for Will, and only a few knew Will had ever done anything for anyone else. This little village had a rude awakening. Somebody was going to have to get to work.
