Basketball, baseball, debating, plays, prize speaking, when you hear these activities mentioned do you im- mediately look forward, with antici- pation, to your first trial or does a wistful longing arise in your heart only to be immediately smothered by that thickest and yet most cowardly of all fogs - - an inferiority complex? I say "cowardly" because once you set your mind on it, it's very simple and easy to defeat it. Here's how you go about it: Supposing the subject is basketball. You just go down to that first practice and watch the fellows shoot awhile, and then before you know it, you'll be saying, "Shucks, those guys are lousy. Let me down there: I'll show 'em how it's done." And your troubles are overg because once you get a taste of that cream of school life, you can't be bribed to quit it. And even if you don't always make the team, you can always say, "I did my best." In overcoming an inferiority com- plex you have to have an extreme su- periority complex at first as a shield: but after the battle has been won, that shield must be thrown away, be- cause with a superiority complex you will be much worse off than you were in the first place, as this condition hurts not only you but others. Be a self-made man, but heed Con- fucius when he say: "The self-made man should not take too much pride in his work." Kidciing Yourself Kidding yourself, or as it is com- monly called, Hputting something over on the teacher", has been, since the founding of our presentschool system, one of the students' most popular sports. It is usually a recognized fact, however, that those students who practice this fine art look upon themselves as very smart, tif one is smart enough to get away with ith and look down upon the rest of the school as being just too stupid. Don't you suppose we could put up with their very funny little tricks, much more easily though if they didn't go around telling how much special credit they deserve? With the sweet innocence of inexperience, they imagine that they are fooling the teacher, while in the first place, strange as it may seem, teachers are not so stupid as these clever students suppose: they hardly could be so simple and get along in this world to- day. In the second place, teachers give high grades because they want to give you the benefit of the doubt: many times probably when they feel reasonably sure that the work is not entirely honest. You are kidding only yourself, when you copy or otherwise cheat, because during this process of depending on someone else for the answer, your ability to find the answers, and your power to meet new situations is rapidly decreasing. Why not snub it now? Come! students, wake up! Snap out of this foolishness, and realize that after all it doesn't make any differ- ence whether you can fool the teacher or notg the important thing is that you're kidding yourself, you're weak- ening. Can't you realize for your own 6 ,W good that it doesn't make any differ- ence to the teacher, Cwhat gave you the idea that it did?J but that you are destroying your one great chance, one great opportunity? "Keep Sailing - - Never Drift" These four words, the molto of the class of 1941, constitute a very large meaning for you and me. You have doubtless heard the words of an old hymn. "Life is like a big blue ocean, we are little ships that sail." That is a very good way to describe life I think. We are all boats on the great ocean of life: and if we are going to win success for ourselves in this world, we must keep sailing through the storms and tempests that are for- ever rising. Not all of the waters are going to be smooth. You must build for yourself a boat to carry you over the roaring waves. This boat must be your character, and only a strong, sturdy character can see you across Life's troubled sea. Then make this your duty and your watchwords- "Keep Sailing - - Never Drift." .-li Three Factors of a Successful Nation There are three forceful factors that constitute a successful nation. The first of these is peace. Through the ages, Peace has been virtually un- known. Our age may certainly be designated as such. At present most of the world is over-run by marching troops. Nations are being over- thrown. Empires are toppling. War is rampart. Yet peace is stub- bornly clutched in a few places - - the --,.gi1igQ,, ,.r.. 1,1 THE LIVE WIRE Americas. The U. S. is still one of the nations where there is no fear of air raids and exploding bombs, no fear of death from the diabolical war machines constituted by warped minds. There can not be any denial for Peace. The second matter is Health. A country cannot be successful if its in- habitants are in poor health. During an epidemic or plague, prominent men and women die causing the country to lose great minds that have worked for mankind. In the result- ing confusion, progress often ceases in various fields of science. After the plague, progress ceases even longer during the period of recuper- ation, There can be very little argu- ment against Health. The third factor is perhaps the cum- ulation of the other two. It is Happiness. To be successful, a country must be happy. The people in the country must be happy. Happi- ness is rarely universal, for it seems that there is always some country where it is downtrodden. A positive example of a successful nation is the U. S., where the majority of the people are happy. Here again is a factor that cannot be denied. There are always some exceptions, but on the whole, Peace, Health and Happiness may be found in all success- ful nations. Any country that loses any of these, fails in its duty as a nation and may not truly be denoted as successful. A country that does give its citizens Peace, Health, and Happiness is by all means successful. The seniors of all high schools, soon leaving to become citizens of the U. S. will have a chance, to keep Peace, Health, and Happiness alive here. Seniors, try, won't you? 1 t 1xNEWPORT, MAINE ,lf .U JI J 15 ' IMS 1 fa! , VA jfx ,JJJ .

His death was a great loss to the class of 1941 by whom his mem- ory will be forever honored. NEWPORT, MAINE The Ordeal He was deathly afraid! His palms were wet, his brow was clammy, yet his eyes were clear. He knew the task confronting him, but he would face it like a man. His mother would be wait- ing tearfully at homey what would they tell her? To face this ordeal with a stout heart would make her a suc- cess as a mother: but if he failed, she failed too. But he wouldn't fail, he'd be brave! He did owe her that much before he started that long walk. During all his existence, hadn't she shielded and protected him from earth's trials and hardships? His father had died two years after the birth of his son, and his Polish mother had to be both parents. But she had done it! Even though she had slaved in a factory fourteen hours a day, she had provided him with all his needs. All this sacrifice and heartache! Was it to be of no avail? Fate is not al- ways kind to those mothers who suffer. And now ,........ Wouldn't it have been better to have had all the gang come and witness this tragedy? No! In life they had looked upon him as a hero and leader. He must bear this alone and bravely. They were all younger than he, and it would never do to have them see him afraid. His legs were unsteady, beads of sweat streamed down his strained features, and his hands shook as he raised them. There it was again! That awful throbbing pain: it kept pushing up into his throat. It threatened to choke him, and yet when he opened his mouth to give vent to his feelings, -V - W . . f.15 no sound came forth! He wanted to scream and cry and beat his hands on those massive doors he would have to pass, but no! His efforts to scream were rewarded with only a muted whimper, like that of a beaten animal. He sank to the ground on one knee, while tearing sobs wracked his frail body. He shook as if by the passing of a blighting wind. Suddenly his shoulder straightened, a look of rever- ence passed over his tearful features. Didn't God take care of all his earthy mortals? Of course! It would be all right, for, hadn't he prayed every night since he was condemned to this fate? He breathed a short prayer and then again raised his eyes to the frighten- ing spectacle before him. Here it was! Looming up like a monstrous rock of granite, it was an awesome sight to behold. It's great, grey structure, with window and wide massive doors, climbed three stories skyward and ended in a flat surfaced roof. "Give up hope, all ye who enter here." It was not printed over the door, why? It should be there, for there was no escape after he once entered. He was doomed to a life of hell under its stern keepers. But he could face it! He strode resolutely forward and stood in front of the grim portals with No. 1 labeled at the top. That was where they all started, No. 1. He was ready now, his courage returned, let them come! Just then a bell clamored through- out the building, there revealed, stood the head man. His great, cruel form approached. In a second, that fear was returning to the condemned. He turned as if to flee, but a heavy hand was dropped on his shoulder. Slowly 16T Y' ' WK' M' W' I ""' WY "" K wzn W THE LIVE WIRE he shufiied toward the dreaded build- ing. The head man said, "You'll be O.K. when you are inside for a while. " It was an attempt at gruff kindness, just to lighten the burden. At last the dreaded moment was here ......,.. lt isn't every day that a six-year-old enters public school! George Ernest Condon '41 Willoughby Reforms "What does the place look like? asked the little girl, Joan. "Oh, I don't know but they say he is awful mean and hateful." replied Billy. "Will he hurt us if he finds us here?" continued Joan. "I dunno." said Billy. Joan Thompson was an orphan, five years old, whose parents had been killed in an accident two years before: so from that time Billy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Moore of Sunnyside, had been taking care of her. The two children were close companions, and one day while they were playing to- gether, wandered farther than usual and finally arrived at Willoughby Hill. They saw the old house of which they had heard so much: and child- like, they were very curious. When they found a hole in the fence big enough, Billy helped Joan through. Now they were on John J. Willoughby's property. As the child- ren looked over the place they could see that the windows were shuttered, the doors closed and the old knockers rusty, the lawn unkept and a look of general neglect was over the whole place. They were just going toward the old fountain when someone called. They looked up and saw a tall, thin and rather stooped man. One could tell from his appearance that he had become old before his time. They stopped short, then as the old man spoke again and started to ap- proach them, they started to run to get away from him. Again he called - - more sternly this time. They returned at his command clinging to each other. In order to understand the circum- stances, the reader must go back a- bout thirty years to when Sunnyside was more thickly settled than it is to- day and John J. Willoughby came with his wife Margaret and baby daughter, Alice, to live at Sunnyside Heights, as they called their home on Willoughby Hill in Sunnyside, Con- necticut. The people of the town accepted them as neighbors and they had won everyone's heart before being there a month. Each person envied the one who was invited to Sunnyside Heights, and each one eagerly relished his in- vitation. But soon all joy turned to sorrow, as an epidemic of typhoid fever raged throughout the whole village. Then John and Margaret Willoughby were loved more than ever by the citizens, for with their wealth, more doctors and nurses were hired to take care of the sick. At the same time Margaret helped the other women of town as a nurse. Then one day Margaret was taken ill with the fever. Everything possible was done, but in vain, she was completely run down, and before long, died. Not long after Margaret's death Alice too was taken NEWPORT, MAINE g--in-f ff,,f nf---f-if-if-W... if T ff . H . W H ff -417 ill. It was pitiful to see John keep up his vigil beside her bed. But she went to join her mother, leaving John alone and heart-broken. From then on the house was closed. John stayed shut up in his house alone with only his memories. Now let us return to the story: "What's the matter?" the man asked kindly. "Are you afraid of me? Come, sit down and tell me your names." The children advanced slowly. "I'm Billy Moore and she's Joan Thompson," Billy answered. The man's heart was touched by Billy's protection of the little girl. As he talked all he could see was his daughter Alice, instead of Joan. As the weeks passed the three grew very friendly. They made visits to each other's homes and John became a changed man. Later Joan came to the house of John Willoughby to take the place of his daughter Alice. A- gain the old house was gay with the ring of children's laughter, and the people were welcome to Sunnyside Heights once more. Barbara Pennell '41 The Green Evening Dress It was a warm, sunny day, typical of spring days. But Susanne wasn't happy. She couldn't find one thing wonderful with the world. She sat at the foot of Mother's chair, sulking in a childlike manner, which didn't quite look nice for a girl sixteen years old. Suddenly she cried, "Mother, why can't I have just as many new clothes as Judy Ann Casey does? Why, when we came home from school today, we stopped to look at the dresses in Greene's Dress Shoppe and she said she was going to have that lovely green evening dress. Oh, mumsey, I do want it so." Mother was quiet for a few minutes, then at last she said, "Well, dear, maybe she will get it. You know how hard I try, but with Jimmy's crutches to buy, I don't see how we can sfford it. But we'll see, dear." "But, mumsey, Tommy asked me to go to the annual spring dance, and it's only two weeks off, and I can't wear that old blue dress. It just posi- tively looks horrid!" After Susanne had gone upstairs, little brother Jimmy wheeled in his chair over to his mother's chair. Jim- my had heard Susanne. He said, "Mom, maybe if I didn't get my crutches right now, Susanne could have her new dress, maybe - - huh?" "You little darling, you know how long you have been waiting for those crutches," said mother with tears in her eyes, so glad her boy was so un- selfish. "Yes, but now it's coming hot weather, I'll just feel lazy and won't feel like using crutches at all. And sis does want that dress so, Mom. Let's fool her and get it for Susanne. You can have the money in my piggy bank: I have 'most a dollar." "Well, we'll see, dear", said mother softly. "Here comes Dad now, go meet him." "O, K. Dad - - oh, Dad, what's in that box?" "Shhh," said Dad secretly, "it's a present for mother." "Goody, I know what it is: it's a box of chocolates. Can I have one?" "You little tyke, can't fool you, can a x 18-- I? Well, they are for you and Sis. I have great news for mother's present. I got promoted today and a raise be- sides. Hey, don't eat them too fast." "Oh, gee, Dad, that's great," said Jimmy, but I have something to talk over with you." And, in his own way, he told Dad the story of Susanne and the green evening dress. At school next morning, Susanne evaded the topic of the spring dances, but the same as usual talkative Judy Anne brought the subject to light. "Oh, Susanne, I just know I'm going to have that dress. Isn't it adorable? I want to look my best, be- cause Ralph, Che's going to take mel said that any boy likes to take a girl that he can be proud of." "What are you going to wear? The same old blue dress? Well, it's too bad you can't have the green dress. It would look lovely on you with your green eyes and auburn hair." "No-no, let's not talk about it, please," said Susanne. ' "All right, Imust go now, 'Bye" and Judy Anne ran off. The rest of the way home Susanne wondered how she could get that dress. Oh! how she wished she had saved all her allowances, but that wouldn't be enough anyway. With a forced smile on her face she greeted friends and at last reached home. Day in and day out she had to listen to Judy Anne's endless chatter. One day she walked by "Greene's" window to get one last look at the dress, and to her surprise it was gone. The green evening dress was gone!! With tears in her eyes she stumbled home and rushed upstairs crying. A few minutes later she opened her me ssss as if: THE LIVE Winn closet door to see the new shoes, rib- bons, and bag mother had purchased to go with her blue dress. She tried to imagine how beautiful they would look with the pale green dress with the tight bodice and just yards of filmy organdy fora skirt. But it was time to go to read to Jimmy now, so she wiped her tears and went down to greet Mother and Jimmy. At last the night for the spring dance arrived. Tommy had been talking to Susanne, and he told her not to cry, she looked all right to him anyway. But Tommy and Susanne had a sur- prise in store for both of them. During supper Mother hummed little ditties and Jimmy told his jokes, while Dad teased Susanne about Tom- my, Cas fathers dol. Tommy would be after her soon, and with all this hap- piness, she couldn't help but be hap- py. Because it really was wonderful. You know how spring nights are. After supper Susanne said, "Mum- sey, Tommy's coming at eight o'clock. Will you fix my hair in a pageboy roll? Please." I "Yes, dear, but first go up and get your ribbon. It's in the closet on the little shelf." "Yes, mumsey," and Susanne skipped upstairs to get her ribbon. , When she opened the closet door, she received the grandest surprise of her sixteen years. For there hung that lovely green dress she had missed from "Greene's" window the previ- ous week. With a cry of joy, she ran down- stairs and hugged Mumsey, Dad and Jimmy. "Ha ha ha ha ha! fooled you, didn't we, Sis?" said Jimmy laughing. 6WJ5f!3f6b,1H7 'il ry CW f NEWPORT, MAINE -DDD ..... . 4 . "Oh, Mother, Dad, you sweet dar- lings, is it for me, really me? cried Susanne. "Well," laughed Dad, "It would look kind of odd on me, and it's a little too large for Jimmy, and Mother is getting just a little too plump," he teased. "But - - 'But - - Jimmy's crutches ?" asked Susanne sorrowfully. "Oh. don't worry about them, they are coming tomorrow or the next day," said Dad. "I got promoted and a raise a while ago." "And you didn't tell me?" said Susanne. But she was too happy to think any more about it. We can honestly say there wasn't a happier couple of "kids" than Tommy and Susanne that night, unless you call Mumsey and Dad "kids" - - - and little happy Jimmy. Margaret McGuire '43 Cousin Jean It was a very stormy day when Kay came plodding down the road. There was a foot of light, fluffy snow and it was still storming hard. It was bitter cold, and she still had a long walk to town. She had plenty of time to think of the Senior Hop. She wanted to go so bad, but she was afraid Hal would not ask her. There was a new girl in town and Hal liked her. Anyway, she thought he did. She didn't have much chance to see him because she lived in the country and while she was home he was out with that city girl. Kay's mother had gone to Bangor to get her an evening gown. She did hope it would be blue because Hal J ni' . """m' 19 liked blue with her brown hair and blue eyes. Kay looked up from the ground and saw Hal and that new girl, Jean, in a sleigh. "Well, of all things," she thought. "I wish the horse would run away." Hal drove up beside Kay and said, "Hello, Kay, get in and we'll take you to town." "Huh, I guess not. I'll walk thank you," Kay replied haughtily. "Well," returned Hal, "What's got into you?" "Who wouldn't get mad," delared Kay. "Are you mad because Hal is going out with me?" asked Jean. "Well I-er," stammered Kay. "If you are, cut in Jean, "I would not be because I am Hal's cousin." "Is that why you are mad, Kay?" asked Hal. "If it is, please get over it, because Iwant you to go to the Senior Hop with me." Dorcas Carsley '44 All ls Well That Ends Well Bud had just left Judith and was wandering homeward along a dark, deserted street. Whirling through his head was a very perplexing question. How was he going to climb through a window, climb a fiight of stairs, which had a very peculiar habit of creaking on every third stair and climb into bed without letting his father know what time he had come home? He remembered how earlier in the evening his father had very sternly said, "Bud, you must be in bed by "T T 'Tv' THE LIVE WIRE 20- ff - fi,.f ,.,. . .. ..-,...,fi. ten-thirty tonight." Here it was five minutes to twelve by the clock in the steeple. Who'd believe him when he said that Fred's car had been out of gas five miles from home? He came in sight of his home stand- ing dark and silent in the night. Bud quickly and quietly made his way to the rear of the house towards the pantry window, which had never been locked since he could remember. Care- fully pushing the window up, he was half way over the sill, when ugh! The window had come down with a thud, knocking the wind out of him. His feet and legs were , dangling in mid air on one side, and his finger tips barely reached the floor on the other. He couldn't move one way or the other. He was rather glad that it was dark and no one could see him. To add to his discomfort, Tippy, the cat which had awakened had climbed up and was tickling Bud's nose with her tail. "Down Tippy," he hissed and helped her with a swat of his hand. The cat wasn't easily dis- couraged. Climbing up again she stuck her claw nail into Bud's lip. With an exclamation, he dived 'after her. This was disasterous. The window had let go, and his body tumbled a complete somersault which caused his feet to come against the opposite wall with a terrible crash. He sat there listening, his breath coming in great gasps and his heart pounding. The house was silent. He slowly got to his feet, and mak- ing his way cautiously across the kitchen, he reached the living room door. He was half way across the room when smack up against a smok- ing stand, knocking it and its contents "galley-west." What a noise! An exclamation came from the room above and a startling voice thundered, "Who's there?" Silence. Again the voice and again complete silence. Bud carefully picked his way across the parlor and started up the stairs. One two, anda terrible cre-ee-ek. Hesi- tation. One, two, cre-ee-ek. Another pause. In this fashion Bud reached the fioor above without a mishap. Stealing through the hall he reached his door with only a groan from his father's room. He entered his room, quickly undressed, crawled into bed, and with a sigh of relief he turned over and went to sleep. All was well until the next time. Olita Goodnow '44 When Death Was Welcome Far away I heard the old church clock toll midnight. The very sound set me trembling. Two more hours of waiting ---- of horror - - - in the spookiest place possible, the grave- yard. I was propped up on a grave- stone with my shivering back snug a- gainst its icy coldness. There was no moon. The frogs didn't croak. The darkness hung like a blanket over the ground. Everything was deathly silent. Minutes were seemingly end'- less. Ten minutes went by - - - silence, fifteen minutes - - a cricket chirped, I jumped and then lit a match. I looked at the engraving on the stone back of me. The letters were twisted in a blood-curdling manner. When I fi- nally puzzled the mess out, I gasped. My heart make one mighty leap and had I not closed my mouth with the speed of lightning, I doubt if I'd be NEWPORT, MAINE A- -?.sA.-..-s..s. . I .-21 telling this tale today. The name on the gravestone was "Frankenstein The Monster." I was paralyzed. My fingers refused to move. My eyes popped. I stared at the stone. The engraving became luminous. I noticed a movement in the crease of one of the letters. A drop of glowing human blood splashed to the base of the stone. The light faded and I saw no more. When I came to, I was looking at the luminous hands of my watch. It was twelve thirty. I lit a match and noticed the engraving on the stone. I realized then it wasn't a dream. During the last dying flicker of the match I glanced at the gravestone opposite me. The letters on it were of the same fantastic design as on the one back of me. My match died. I continued staring at the dark outline of the stone. A silvery glow slowly formed at the middle ofit. The name "Dracula" appeared. Memories of a man who was dead in the daytime and alive at night came to me. Dracula could change himself into a wolf or a bat and killpeople at will. He was finally killed by driving agolden spike into his heart. And here I was sit- ting on him. For the next half hour I perspired beads of cold sweat. I didn't dare move. I heard weird sounds. Cries of agony. Peals of insane laughter. Screams of frenzy and even the howl- ing of a lone wolf. Suddenly I froze. A bat crawled up my sleeve toward my throat - - thoughts of Dracula - - I saw a hugh illuminated shadow walk slowly by - -thoughts of Frankenstein, Right there I awoke. I couldn't stand it any longer. I shook the bat from my arm and ran for home as fast asIcould go. One fact was settled in my mind. I'd rather not be a Future Farmer than go through with any more of that initiation. Warren Brawn '42 The Last Mile The warm spring air was still, ex- cept for the rhythmical click-clack of the track spikes as they tapped lightly on the cinders. It was late, nearly time for supper at the dorm: yet, one solitary figure still remained here on the track. The ease with which those long even strides carried him forward showed the perfection which comes only from years of practice and de- velopment. And such it had been. For seven springs, three in high school and now the fourth in college, Dick had been dreaming of what would really happen tomorrow. To- morrow at the inter-collegiate meet Dick would run his last mile before he hung up his spikes and entered, as his father had so firmly insisted, into the business of banking. But he was not pleased, at least not as he had dreamed of being. He had always dreamed of Winning: but now he would not wing that was certain. Never before had he realized the change it would be to settle down to the life of banking. Now, all these things sped through his troubled mind as he ran. As he lay in his bed that night, tossing in restlessness, once more that picture ran through his mind. All those meets in the last four seasons seemed to drift before his eyes. Each time, he saw himself, as he had been beaten, sometimes only by feet, 22- Y - - V Yrff - H -W--nf--4, W-he--in We-f-+l THE LIVE WIRE but always by that same one, Martin. Always he had gone on, hoping that sometime he might speed past Martin in that last stretch of a mile, and hear those cries of praise which always greet a winner. Now the last chance had come. He had trained as he had never trained before until now he was in the peak of condition and his hopes the highest ever - - until - - today Coach Morse had called him to his office and said, "Dick, tomorrow is the National Championship meet. If we can take the mile we've got a very good chance to win. Now, I've been looking over the competition and it's pretty tough even for Martin. Now here's the way I've got it figured. If you were to run and set a very fast pace, it would be necessary for the whole field except Martin to stay with you. Thus Martin would be able to conserve his power to the last quarter mile and as the others are exhausted from following you, he could win the race easily. I realize this race means a lot to you: therefore you can do as you like: but if we lose the mile its foutsb for us. But as I said before, make up your own mind, and don't do it if you really d0n't think it's the best idea. Of course he had agreed, but with it had gone his last chance. What an end after four years of struggling! The next day dawned warm and pleasant. The field which was so quiet last night now was filled with a milling crowd of spectators fighting their way to the fast filling bleachers. Dick sat slouched on the bench, mech- anically watching the events until the call came. "First call for the mile!" Slowly he rose, removed his warm-up suit and took the usual warming-up exercises ending with one slow lap around the half-mile track. "Last call for the mile!" the an- nouncer called outg and a group of men representing colleges all over the nation took their respective positions at the starting line. After the usual confusion of arranging the runners, the starter raised the gun. "On your marks: get set," and they were off at the sound of the gun. The crowd roared hysterically as Dick sprinted out for a twenty yard lead and set a killing pace. At the quarter mark, he led thirty yards and at the half, by fifty. Then, as if some of those muscles of his shapely legs had run out of fuel, his pace began to slow and the length of those bouncing strides shortened. At the three- quarter mark his lead was even less. His lungs burned like two furnaces within his chest: the muscles of his legs pulled and knotted in pain from overworkg and a pain like the cutting of a sharp knife ran through his right side. Behind him he heard, a- bove the distant sounding cries of the crowd, the pounding of feet. Soon Martin would speed by, winning again. Dick cast a glance over his shoulder and what he saw sent a tingle of surprise through his body. It was not Martin! It was Jones from Boston! He must run, not only for himself, but also for dear old Trilon. Ahead loomed the finish line: behind him the pounding of feet drew nearer and nearer. The pain in his side grew sharper and sharper. He gritted his teeth and closed his eyes to fight it off, yet, with each step the pain grew greater. Then something with- in him seemed to snap: the cries of the crowd seemed to fioat away into NEWPORT, MAINE Y Z.. ig 1 " 23 silencep and everything went black. It was the end. Everything around him seemed to swirl and go black. He took a few faltering, stumbling steps and fell to the ground with a numb thud. His last thoughts, as the pain in his side seemed to pull his weary body into knots of pain, were that he had at least tried. Although Dick would never know, those last stumbling steps had carried him across the finish line. He was the winner and establisher of a new national record for the mile run. At Trilon they no longer use the cry, "Do or Die for Dear Old Trilon-" In memory of one who did both, there stands a marble monument in front of the Memorial Gymnasium. Leon Gray '42 ...i Villll Out Where The Daisies Grow Last night I thought I'd take a walk Out where the daisies grow. The moon was shining brightly down: The field was white like snow: And as I tiptoed softly round With shadows at my side, I saw the little fairies run To find a place to hide. One little fairy lost his cap QA little golden thingl Another fairy in his haste, Dropped a dusty wing. I picked them up and brushed them off, And tucked them both away Until some night that I'd return To watch the fairies play. And then I gently tiptoed off To let each daisy rest And let each little fairy climb Out from his daisy nest. And when the morning comes again, Each daisy will arise And lift her little dewey head And open wide her eyes. And then each little fairy runs To find a daisy white, To sleep all day beneath the shade And wait until the night. Then out again each fairy comes Beneath the moon's bright glow. It's really very beautiful Out where the daisies grow! Alice M.

Eddie Towne '41 I V' THE LIVE WIRE The Qld Elm Tree A sudden thought once came to me As I looked at the old Elm tree. It's branches almost touched the ground, So still, so still, not e'er a sound. I looked at it and thought in vain, I thought that I would call its name. "Oh, Mr. Tree, do speak to me." He smiled and said ' 'Do you inean me?" "I am so lonely, Mr. Tree, Won't you please come play with me? I have some dollies and dishes you see, A table so they can all have tea."

Student Council The Council this year has been most active in the supervision of school ac- tivities. It also provides opportunities for student participation in the con- trol of the school. It sponsored the purchase of a metal stamp with the school seal upon it: has been the back- er of many other worthwhile projects: sponsoring the annual Winter Carni- val, which was a great success.

Debate Club With the induction of debating into the regular school curriculum, the debate club met but once a month. The debate teams of this year at- tended tournaments at Cony, Orono, and at Foxcroft. The varsity team met very good competition in all these tournaments but managed to emerge from all three tournaments with an undefeated record. With the added interest in debating we found an extremely large amount of material available and twelve de- baters actually earned letters. We found our second teams defeating first teams of other high schools - - a not- able example was our second afiirma- tive team defeating Hartland's first negative team. In the triangles although we out- pointed our rivals, our affirmative 1. .-. NU. i.12,.-.-2'. . t"S. team lost to Winslow 2-1, Leon Gray winning best speaker. At Foxcroft our negative team beat Foxcroft affirmative team 3-0, Waldo Pray getting best speaker and thus completing an undefeated season for the Negative. Special recognition should be given to Leon Gray and Waldo Pray, who won Best Speaker decisions in all their debates, 7 for Gray and 8 for Pray. These two boys also did good work as our representatives in the Bowdoin League in December.

The skating, skiing, and snowshoe- ing events were held on Lake Sebasti- cook. The ski-jumping was held at Tip Top. N. H. S. won the carnival cup from Hartland by a score of U4-81. Rebecca Rediker of Hartland and Elton Nason of Newport, won the in- dividual cups. Other stars in the carnival were: Edwin Towne, Fred Witham, Leon Gray, James Christie, Evangeline Gray, and Barbara Pennell. After the sports events in the after- noon, a supper was served at the Grange Hall under the supervision of Miss Seferlis. ln the evening, a pro- gram and dance were held at the town hall. After the program, Josephine Varney was crowned Queen, and she awarded the medals and cups to the winners in the afternoon events. Two weeks later, Newport went to Hartland to participate in their carni- val, and again we won the cup by a score of 10-1-68. Again, Miss Rediker and Elton Nason won the individual cups. gawaa t I .L M..

Derby On the Friday before the Christmas vacation, Santa Claus favored East Corinth and they won 27-19. The game was fairly even the first half, but in the last half a sudden surge of action won the game for the visitors. Work was resumed after vacation with the result that a winning spree was opened by a real thriller with Hartland when the boys in blue won 24-23. Following this the boys trav- eled to Corinna to win both the J. V. and Varsity games by safe margins. The scores were 20-10 and 35-15 re- spectively. They chalked up another easy win when they traveled to Car- mel. The final score was 30-12. It . . IVIN, '. l lllll . was in this game that "hitch-hiker" Witham acquired his fame! On January 24, the winning streak was momentarily halted when they were defeated by the visiting Hermon team in the year's second real thriller, the final score being 27-26. Two more wins over Corinna's J. V. and Varsity teams in the return games in which the scores were 26-13 and 26-22 respectively, and the boys were rarin' to go - - to go to East Corinth. They were out to get revenge for that first game, and Boy! did they get it. It was probably the fastest and rough- est game of the season and although Frazer and Davis both got fouled out early in the last half the boys went out to win 26-22. However, I fear I must say that that game was a glori- ous finish to a great winning streak because the next three games were 38 i- f W V fe H-f THE LIVE WIRE BASEBALL Back Row, loft to right-Coaoli Hatfield, ll.

Fraser lost to Hermon, 34- 20, Hartland 26-20 and Hampden 32-24 respectively. All's well that ends well, so all must be well for Newport High School he- cause the final two games of the season were victories over Hampden 33-32 and Carmel 35-18. But although the season was ofiicially closed, there was still more fun to be had - - fun in the form of All-Stars vs. Coaches. This game was played at Hermon. Representing Newport men are Clem- ent for the coaches and Ernie Condon and Freddy Witham for the All-Stars. Under the coaching of Mr. Hatfield the All-Stars won. Letter men include: Capt. D. Frazer LG. E. Condon RF, F. Witham LF, P. Carter RG, K. Davis C, W. Pray, J. Christie, E. Nason, and Manager W. Brown. Baseball The sore arms came and disappear- ed early last year as Coach Hatfield, apparently affiicted with spring fever, got practices under way early in the town hall. It consisted of throwing, base running, bunting, and methods of playing the ball and base runners in the field. It was a considerably green team that started out that Tuesday after- noon for their first game of the season at East Corinth, but the boys were rarin' to go and the game was a real thriller even though we did finish on the short end of a 5 to 4 score. The climax came when in the last inning men were seemingly stealing every base on the diamond and successfully, too, until Pray got caught at home ending our remaining chance to score. NEWPORT, MAINE QT. iran. e -- .. 1-was If a shadow of Coach Hatfield's pre- season pessimistic attitude still linger- edit was soon to be completely van- quished because the boys turned in a real performance the following Tues- day when they defeated Corinna, here by a score of 8 to 3 and then went on to Hermon the next Friday to chalk up one of the seasons highest scores in downing Hermon 22-9. Their winning streak was halted momentarily when they were edged out by a strong Hampden team in the years greatest thriller by a score of 10 to 9. However they again got back on track on Tuesday of the next week, defeating Hartland 8 to 1. An excel- lent pitching game was turned by both Condon and Davis as was true in all the previous games. Apparently enraged by the victory they had dropped to Corinth in their first game, the boys from N. H. S. on Thursday of the next week handed Corinth, in the return game, a beating which will not soon be forgotten, by either team. The final score was 26 to 4. The pitching staff, Condon, Davis, and Mullen far outpointed their rivals. It was apparently an "off" day for the boys when they met Hermon on the home grounds the next Tuesday and by one run lost for the 3rd and last time during the season. However, they came back strong on Friday of the same week to defeat the league-leading Hampden team at Hampden by a score of 15 to 11. This was indeed a glorious finish to a brilliant and invigorating season-in- vigoratoring because nearly every member of the team will be playing again this spring. In addition Condon and Davis who also played shortstop the remaining members of the team were: L. Rober- son, Cg E. Nason, IB: P. Carter, 2Bg D. Fraser, 3B: W. Pray, LF: J. Christie CF, and D. Clark, RF. Intramurals The intramural program was made larger than usual this year by the fall softball, touch football, and volley ball. The teams in this race were the Tigers, the Eagles, the Hawks, and the Pir- ates who were captained by Paul Car- ter, Freddie Witham, Bub Davis, and Jimmie Christie respectively. The final winners were Carter's Tigers, however they won only after a long nip and tuck battle with the Eagles. Although the Hawks got off to a very bad start they came back later to play a very important and decisive part and the Tigers have them to thank, some- what, for their victory, The Pirates apparently were shipwrecked early in the season, either that, or they chart- ered the wrong course: however they were always in there fighting. This program served quite wellits intended purpose of counteracting the inability of having football. The basketball intramurals this year were exceptionally interesting and close, the Commanders and Midgets waging a great battle. The race was quite similar to that in the fall intra- murals as the Skulls, like the Hawks, got off to a poor start, but later played an important part in determining the winner, the Commanders.

'Olympians are made, made in places just like Newport High. And the track team sure did look and act like champions last spring. At the first meet at Charleston on May 2, they were edged out of first place by a strong Higgins team but very easily put Dexter N. Y. A. into the back- ground. The following Thursday the boys traveled to Pittsfield where they again took second place, this time to M.C.I., and forced the N.Y.A. of Dexter into third place. Saturday, May 18, the boys traveled to Greenville for their first meet with high school competition and came out victors of the closest and hardest fought meet of the season. The final score was 52-47. NEWPORT, MAINE izm ' "W P -, ,.., . . . , ,, ,'..,,,, , , ' """41 I iI,S' 4. SKI'l'l'H. I. I ,,. X- -I 1. w u , . V v. ,, .. L I1 I X K I Bark Row, Intl to right-ll.

Girls Sports The girls got a better start in sports this year. After the first few weeks we were really progressing. In the fall on Mondays and Thursdays girls participated in volley ball, soft ball, bowling, and hiking.

'Hand Frances Frances at guard has been a star. A girl with high spirit who will surely get far. One great disadvantage with the team next year Is that fighting Frances won't be here.

'Twitchell Grace Gracie a guard next year will be here, And with her help we need have no fear. She'll iight to the finish and never givein. With her, we'll be sure of many a win. Wade Opal Opal the girl who plays and cheers: With she and her mascot we had no fears: But next year when she is not here: Whoever fills her shoes, her task, she will fear.

One great qualification of a good athletic is that she must be a good loser as well as a good winner and that is one qualification the girls certainly had. The team fought their games through with vigor and vim and next year we hope to turn in more victories. Z..-..giQjKSg.......

Gilman, Mrs. Tinnie Littlefield, Mrs. Perley E. Cary, Arthur Holbrook of Guilford Mrs. Dinsmore l-lilliker, Corinna. Principal Stanley Clement spoke about the high school of today and expressed the plea- sure of having an alumni organization.

THE LIBRARY CLERK'S NIGHTMARE As Rebecca and Kitty Foyle walked along The Good Earth and over Green Pastures on the Path to Home, they agreed that Pride and Prejudice should never have kept Ramona and The Country Doctor on a One Way Street until the Hound of Baskervilles gave his Call of the Wild echoing be- yond Lost Horizon. They continued on the Tobacco Road until they came to the Rivers End at the foot of Wuthering Heights. Here they found the Yearling headed for Jamaica Inn to Escape the Sea Hawk and the Hunchback of Notre Dame who had violated the "Ten Com- mandments and had an Appointment with Death.

He then had to follow the Solitary Horseman through Un- charted Seas and across the Garden of Allah. Rebecca then gave him the Dark Command for silenceg she said We are not Alone. The Yearling then lamented sorrow- fully, In the Good Old Days, we could have had All This And Heaven, Too. But:now, the Light of Faith has Gone With the Wind and all we have left is The Light that Failed. Just then, Believe It Or Not, Tarzan of the Apes was Coming Through The Rye with the Housekeepers Daughter. In hot pursuit came Dr. Jekel and Mr. Hyde. The Man of the Forest then joined the chase. He said I want the Housekeeper's Daughter, Dead or Alive, even if she does claim to be The Bride of Frankenstein! Freckles then appeared on the scene and told Tarzon of the Apes that there were Two Keys to a Cabin down in Mulberry Square and that he had better get them be- fore Sunrise so that he would be Out Of The Storm, He could rest there until Dawn of the Morning and Escape with the Sea Wolf and The Bat to Wild Horse Mesa. Here the Substi- tute Guest would gladly cover their Trail Dust with Swift Waters. But, alas! Just now asl lifted my eyes from this paper, my characters have made a complete Escape.
