of the Big, Bad Wolf?
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
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."
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
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
"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."
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
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?

When the arrny- es get Fred,
We're sure he" duck all the lead.
To the late Clyde Drake, whose death during his Fresh-
man year was deeply grieved by all who knew him. His
death was a great loss to the class of 1941 by whom his mem-
ory will be forever honored.
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
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
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
"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
"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
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-
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-
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

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

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.

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-
"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
"O, K. Dad - - oh, Dad, what's in
"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
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
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
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?
I "Yes, dear, but first go up and get
your ribbon. It's in the closet on the
"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-
With a cry of joy, she ran down-
stairs and hugged Mumsey, Dad and
"Ha ha ha ha ha! fooled you, didn't
we, Sis?" said Jimmy laughing.
NEWPORT, MAINE -DDD ..... . 4 .
"Oh, Mother, Dad, you sweet dar-
lings, is it for me, really me? cried
"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
"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.

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

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.

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'-
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
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.

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
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.

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!

Floats high above the trees,

Waving out our liberty
For which the Americans stand.
Over peril and disaster
It stately holds its place

From steel gray clouds above:

Here at last is good spring weather,
No more snow for another year,
Flowers and trees all bud together,
Simply because good spring is here.
The birds all flit to and fro,
And little squirrels chatter,
The old hard earth softens up,
To see what is the matter.
The green grass shows its pretty self 3
Soft shines the good old sung
And soon appears spring's little elf,
To tell that winters done.
The snowflakes are a piece of art
Unequalled yet by man:
They fiutter down upon the ground,
As lightly as they can.
Now their construction is so fine,
The particles so small,
Without using the microscope,
Some can't be seen at all.
But in the spring when winter's done
And Old Man Sun comes 'round,
The snowiiakes then begin to melt

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

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

All's well that ends well, so all must

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.

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
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.

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.
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.

They continued on the Tobacco Road
until they came to the Rivers End at

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-

where the hurricane still raged. He
told Kitty Foyle that after The

Just a Dream. 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

In hot pursuit came Dr. Jekel and Mr.
Hyde. The Man of the Forest then
joined the chase. He said I want the
