One thing which we hope they have not overlooked is the need of manual training. At present anything of this type has been done only in connection with the agricultural course, and has only been available to students enrolled in that particular course. lt had been entirely eliminated until the recent reintroduc- tio11 of agriculture as a course. Since those classes do most of their work in the building provided for it, the "workshop', in the basement of the high school is not utilized to the fullest extent. This room could be used as a manual training classroom and give students the chance to take the subject without enrolling as an uaggief, A class of manual arts, of course, necessarily needs material on which to work. Up to their capacity, they would be able to repair furniture and other wood-working projects brought in from the homes. Many jobs around the school could be used as class problems. The town pays out a comparatively large sum of money each year for the repair and upkeep of school property, much ot which could be done by a manual training class, if one were started. Cupboards, lockers, bookcases and many other things, made by the class, would greatly decrease the town's appropriation for that type of expense. It seems that a manual training class would be a valuable addition to our school. It would cut the sehool,s expenditures, make many helpful contrivances available for school use and would provide a new and instructive class for the students of Newport High School. Hadley Smith '47. THE LIVE XVIRE tri A EDITORIAL lVe, the class of 1947, have reached the last days of our high school career. lVe've had many good times in good old Newport High. All the fun, edu- cation, and friendships weive made can never be taken away from us. VVe can all remember the day when we were initiated into high school in the proper manner. Right then, we would have given anything to be "dignified" Seniors and not usillyn Freshmen. But then, one always has to start at the hot- tom and work up. ' The years soared by until, at last, we have reached our goal-we are Seniors! There is p1'ide and happiness in the word, yet it touches us with a hit of sadness. With only memories left, We go out into the worldito face life with the line and efficient background that we received at Newport High. Thus, underclassmates, we bid you farewell with the hope that you will make many friendships and have as many good times as we have had during the past four years. loyee Sheridan -it -tif rigiibkau naihkarr nQ,.f'4't9'gf'fC5F"w.9n svfmirfaffin v THE LIVE WVIRE L 9 l I CLASS PRESIDENT Hadley Smith "Smithie" College Course "Nature made him what he is and never made anotherv Mixed Chorus 2, 3, 4, Boys, Glee Club 1, Journalism ,Club 2, 3, Booster Board 2, 3, Editor-in-Chief 3, Live Wire Board 2, 3, 4, Assistant Editor 3, Editor-in-Chief 4, Student Council 1, 2, 3, 4, President 4, Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 4, Sophomore Speaking, Junior Prize Speaking, second best speaker, Audubon Society 2, "N" Club 3, 4, Vice President 4, Senior Play, Carnival Queen Candidate Manager 2, 3, 'Carnival King 4, Class President 4, Music Festiwal 2, 3, 4, National Honor 'Society 8, 45 First Honor Essay.

Our thoughts go back over the four happy years that we have spent here, and before us looms our Freshman year. Our class was led that year by Earl O,Farrell, Betty Turner, and Dorothy Garrison as class officers. Our class made a fine beginning in the participa- tion of school sports and activities. Betty Turner was our candidate for Carnival Queen at the annual Winter Carnival. ' We entered into sport activities with Joyce Sheridan playing basketball and Maurice Bradford participating in base- ball. At last we had made the grade into our Sophomore year of high school. We had become now fairly well established in N. H. S., and elected Maurice Brad- ford, Harold Condon, and Hanna Haap- anen as class officers. At Sophomore Speaking, held in the Newport Playhouse, Rosalie Jones won first prize for girls, and Dick Nason first prize for boys, with Lois Bryant as sec- ond best speaker. Other speakers were Joyce Sheridan, Wendall Braley, and Hadley Smith. Our candidate for Carnival Queen this year was Hanna Haapanen. The sports events at the Carnival were up- held by Joyce Sheridan and Maurice Bradford. THE LIVE WIRE "l17l Again, participating in athletics were Joyce and Maurice, with David Rowe and "Slug, Condon making promising Also Dick Nason, feats as beginners. Dana Small, "Slug" Condon and Dick Chambers appeared on the gridiron of the newly organized football team. The word and rank of "Juniors', was music to our ears. Our proud and am- bitious class elected "Slugv Condon, Hadley Smith, and Hanna Haapanen as class leaders. Ohl How we remember the night of our Junior Prom which was effectively combined with Junior Prize Speaking in the Town Hall. Our committee worked diligently in preparing and decorating the hall for this big event. Speakers chosen were Joyce Sheri- dan, Jean Finnemore, Rosalie Jones, Richard Nason, Hadley Smith and Jack Randall. Joanne Ballard, who was al- ternate, took Jeanis place that night be- cause of the latteris illness. Joyce and Jack were winners of the first prizes and Hadley was judged the second best speaker. "Dick', Nason, a top deba-ter, was an extremely active member of the Debate Club this year, having shown great in- terest in this organization since his Freshman year. Again our sports-minded students had taken their places in the field of ath- letics. The year passed quickly with many good times and friendships made by everyone. But there was great anxiety and excitement in our class, as We xi Y I kiwqm Q 'f ,W I 'Y 'K lrvtf Hndfwf A 'JL-.C ' is ' 2--,.:,:, r 5 f e J fi 4 5 I , 4 'M "vsif?"fitjt ' A wENdmll .

Like a ship emerging from a storm, we now beheld the beacon lights of completion guiding the way to the calm waters of graduation. We are Seniors! Our class officers were Had- ley Smith, Rosalie jones, and Hanna llaapanen. As always, it was our duty as Seniors to give the Freshmen a welcoming re- ception. Following the reception a dance was held, which made the eve- ning a com-plete success. Through the chilly days of autumn our energetic sportsmen, Condon, Na- son, Randall, Chambers, Small, and Reynolds, were back on our football field. Next year the basketball teams will lose from our class Joyce and Maurice, two of its most faithful players. jean Finnemore and Hadley Smith made our class very proud when they were crowned King and Queen at the XVinter Carnival Coronation. Our class was greatly honored in hav- ing had four of its members initiated into the National Honor Society by the charter members of the class of '46 at Baccalaureate Services in the Union Church. The students who received pins and certificates were Rosalie jones, joyce Sheridan, Lois Bryant, and Had- ley Smith. As day comes to an end at twilight, so comes the end of our perfect days at N. I-I. S., and we are looking forward to the happy and prosperous days of our future. Joyce Sheridan Rosalie jones UIHSS MUNI!

The members in our class participating in the winter sports were Marie Patchell, james Smith, Wendall Greene, Ivan Fletcher, Richard Williams, and Marilyn Rich. The assemhly sponsored by the jun- iors was a great success. Marie Patchell and Marilyn Rich gave readings, and the class as a whole put on a short humorous skit.

Friday, November 5, the Sophomore Class put on an assembly at the Town Hall which consisted of "Smoky -Ioels Fashion Show" and a one-act play. A successful nylon raffle was held in December. It was drawn off just be- fore Christmas and the lucky winner was Glen Richardson. In january tryouts for Sophomore Speaking were held. Those chosen were Eldora Wade, Olga Haapanen, Dori-s Kimball, Wilbur Miller, Allen Hubbard and jean Paul Fraser. The alternate was Beverly Seavey. On the 14th we chose our candidate for King and Queen for the XVinter Carnival. The candi- dates chosen were lola Gray and Pete Small, and their manager was lean Paul Fraser. Taken as a whole, the Sophomores haven't done too badly for themselves this past year. MES MIIJEN I NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL l 24 l ,ra ,,.V. V,,.. ,. K, FRESHMAN CLASS First Row-B. Cook, E. Garnett, L.

Candidates for King and Queen were Ernest Corten and Phyllis Batchelder. Malcolm Nlnllen served as campaign manager. The eighth grade sponsored the as- sembly at which the King and Queen were chosen by popular vote. During the latter part of january, preparations began for a spelling con- test. The team was made up of live members: Delina Paradis, Malcolm Mullen, Esther Pinkham, Nancy Tucker and Ernest Corten, and alternates George Finnemore and Beverly Sennett.

Be- fore my eyes stood the oldest civiliza- tion in the world, and the largest in all Asia. Confucius says its history reaches back for fifty centuries, and still old an- cestry worship reigns oier the land. Here in the Far East, as in America, the importance of rivers is very evident, and from the mountainous inland re- gions of China they flow straight to our own Pacific Ocean. My vision quite suddenly vanished, and I now gazed upon another corner of the earth, seeing before me the lofty Alps of Switzerland, the most magnifi- cent physical feature of Europe. The weather was a skieris dream. The weighted spruces cast blue shadows on the gleaming slopes and Swiss chalets, summer will come, bringing a great transposition. The slope, which once gleamed with snow, is now blanketed with famous Alpine roses and violets. Now and then a young mountain goat can be seen wandering in this field of rainbow colors, trying to reach the in- accessible rocks of the higher altitude. At night the stars seemed to crackle in the black infinity of sky, as I looked up- ward to the summit of a gracious, snow-capped mountain. There I stood- in the enchantment of this momentous twilight view, gazing upon the flowing, silver tributary o'f the Danube and Rhine as it took rise in the Alps, the pride of all Switzerland. I shall now proceed to tell you of Holland, the most important small country in the world, known principally for its dykes and windmills. The in- habitants of this little nation call them- selves "Nederlanders,v meaning Dutch. Though they have had their own dis- tinctive characteristics for centuries, manyfof them are rather like Germans, while others are like the English. Dutch folk are known the world over for the quaintness of their costumes, the wooden shoes and baggy trousers of the farmer, and the neat white caps and dresses worn by the women and chil- dren. Along the canals and o,er the low meadow land, bicycling is the modern mode of travel. As for history, Amster- dam is Hollandis largest city, the Hague is the nation,s capital, and Rotterdam the seat of authority. My next stop was London, a most beautiful old city of palaces, museums, and cathedrals. Yet I had seen so much of man-made beauty I decided to spend a day in' the English countryside, and observe the architecture of the "Old English half timbersf' as the country homes are called. They are low ram- bling cottages, and to the spectator the neatness of their shrubs and gardens in the misty early morn gives a calm and peaceful picture. For excitement and pleasure I went to Paris, the literary, artistic capital of France, and social capital of Europe since the decline of Rome. Because of its magnificent architecture, Notre Dame becomes the oldest, largest and most impressive cathedral in the World. Here in France there are ancient castles of every description, but the treasure of them all is the Lourve, a royal castle since the day of Philippe Auguste. Paris can rightfully claim the title of being the cradle of the newest fashions, the latest luxury, and the paradise of all pleasure seekers, who wish to glimpse THE LIVE WIRE l29l the most attractive jewel that glitters in the Coronet of mother earth. Paris became a thing of the past, as I journeyed through Italy, for my en- tire attention dwelled upon a White, circular tower in the distance. Some- thing seemed to tell me that it was the famed 'leaning Towerv of the cele- brated Italian city of Pisa, but much to my dismay it vanished from sight. I might have ventured to some other remote corner of the earth had I not been awakened by the strike of the vil- lage clock, reminding me to reopen the pages of a forgotten history book. I did this enthusiastically, for still fresh in my memory were the thoughts of that mo- mentous journey. But instead of finding the lesson to be full of Parisian adven- ture, I proceeded to read how Colum- bus discovered America. Rosalie jones '47 -u sf fu HIS LAST COURT Old judge Gibson, a justice of the Peace, was never known to smile. He came to Arkansas years ago, and, year after year, by the will of the voters, he held his place as magistrate. The law- yers who practiced in his court never joked with him, because everyone soon learned that the old man never engaged in levity. Every morning, no matter how bad the weather might be, the old man took his place behind the bar, which with his own hands he had made, and every evening, just at a certain time, he closed his books and went home. No one ever engaged him in private conver- sation, because he would talk to no one. No one ever went to his home, a little cottage among the trees in the city's outskirts, because he had never shown a disposition to make welcome the visits of those who even lived in the immedi- ate vicinity. His office was not given him through the influence of "elec- tioneeringf' because he never asked any man for his vote. He was first elected because, having been once summoned in a case of arbitration he exhibited the executive side of such a legal mind that the people nominated and elected him. One day a woman charged with mis- demeanor was arraigned before him. "The old man seems more unsteady than everf' remarked a lawyer as the magistrate took his seat. "I don,t see how a man so old can stand the vexation of a court much- lon-gerf' "I am not well todayf said the Judge, turning to the lawyers, "and any cases that you may have you will please dis- patch them to the best and, may I add, to the quickest of your ability." Everyone saw that the old man was unusually fee-ble, and no one thought of a scheme to prolong a discussion, for all the lawyers had learned to rever- ence him. "Is this the woman?" asked the judge. K'Who is defending herlw GI have no defense, your honor," the women replied. "In fact, I do not think I need any, for I am here to confess my guilt. No man can defend mef, and she looked at the magistrate with a curious gaze. "I have been arrested on a charge of disturbing the peace, and I am will- ing to submit to any judgment. I am dying of consumption, Judge, and I know that any ruling made by the law can have but little effect on me,', and NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL l30l she coughed a hollow, hacking cough, and drew around her an old black shawl that she wore. The expression on the face of the magistrate remained un- changed, but his eyelids dropped and he did not raise them when the woman continued: "As I say, no man can defend me. I am too near that awful separation of soul and 'body. Years ago, I was a child of brightest promise. I lived with my parents in Kentucky. Wayward and light-hearted, I was admired by all the gay society known in the neighboring town. A man came and professed his love for me. I don't say this, Iudge, to excite your sympathy. I have many and many a time been drawn before courts, but I never before spoke of my past life." S-he coughed again and coughed a flow of blood on a handkerchief which she pressed to her lips. "I speak of it now because I know that this is the last court on earth before which I will be arraigned. "I was nineteen years old when I fell in love with the man. My father said he was bad, but I loved him. My father said that I could never come home again, after we had eloped and had been married. I had always been his pride and had loved him dearly, but he said that I must never again come to his home, my home, the home of my youth. Hfow I longed to see him! How I yearned to put my head on his breast. My husband became addicted to drink. He abused me. I w1'ote to my father, asking him to let me come home, but the answer that came was 'I don't know youl' My husband died-yes, cursed God and diedl Homeless and wretched, and with my little boy, I went out into the world. My child died, and I blowed down and wept over a pauper's grave. I wrote to my father again, but he an- swered, 'I don't know those who dis- obey my comm-andmentsf I turned away from that letter, hardened. I spurned my teachings. Now, I am heref, Several lawyers rushed forward. A crimson stream flowed from her lips. They leaned her lifeless head back against the chair. The old magistrate had not raised his eyes. 'fGreat Cod!" said a lawyer, "He is dead." The dead woman was his daughter. Hanna Haapanen '47 1 4 -u MONDAY MORNING BLUES I lay in my cozy, warm bed and dreaded to throw back the covers. A persistent voice broke into my thoughts for a third time, calling "This is the last time I'm going to call you. What's the matter? Arenit you going to school this morning? I began throwing back the covers one by one and sat up. Why did they ever invent school, anyway. I got a glimpse of myself in the vanity mirror, and what a sight! I didn't know any- one's hair could stand up so straight in all directions, and my eyes were still heavy with sleep. With lagging motions I started to dress. I tried to remember where my blue sweater was. Good heavens, I had left it-yah, where? Finally, getting discouraged and giving it up as hopeless, I decided to eat my breakfast and dress later. Since I couldn't find my slippers, I paddled down stairs in my bare feet. I guess I must have been a little late for break- fast, for everyone had long since left THE LIVE WIRE l31l the table. The food was cold and the coffee was all gone. After burning my fingers four times, I got my breakfast. I glanced at the clock and decided it must be Wrong, it couldn't be that late. I made a scramble back upstairs and decided to put on the very first thing I found. It happened to be a pair of my father's size 40 breeches. They were a little long in the legs, so I turned them up a bit. The too large waist was easily fixed with a large safety pin. I decided I must have something to go with the pants, so I donned one of his best shirts. Even if the outfit was a little baggy, it didn't matter. I also noticed I had one red plaid sock on and the other was a brilliant yellow. I 'combed my hair, which had a slight resemblance to my mother's dust mop, and gave my teeth a glance of the toothbrush. When I tried to find my books I was thoroughly convinced that some kind friend had disposed of them. I heard an urgent blast of a horn that must belong to the school bus. I grabbed my brother's wool shirt that was close by and made a dash for the door. I arrived at the bus breathless, sleepy and played out. I wondered Why they ever had school on Monday mornings.

Marilyn Chase ,48 an 4: an LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP Perched ion a ledge ten stories up on the front of a hotel, Ken tried to mus- ter enough courage to leap to his death and end his miserable life. Ann, his young wife, was gone, his job lost, and the future held nothing but wretched- ness. He had done much thinking while in the balance of life and death on that afternoon. Ken and Ann had been mar- NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL l32l ried for a year, and they were to have a baby. Now he would never see his child. He had been drunk for two weeks, ever since he had lost his job. Ann had left him in a drunken stupor, as she had threatened many times to do. When Ken awoke he found a note telling him his wife had gone. Then he realized how wrong he had been. In his opinion, everything was lost. There was nothing in the future for him. How he longed for another chance. From the street there arose the soft, murmurous noise of milling, gathering excitement seekers. To Ken there were a thousand intimacies in the sounds. Brakes screamed somewhere. From far away came the sound of music very faint and uncertain. Often he heard horns blast. The street shimmered in the baking sun, and perspiration ran down the young man's face as he watched the police trying vainly to dis- perse the crowd. A group of firemen with a large round net had been stand- ing all afternolon Where they thought the suicide would land. Other policemen and firemen were stringing a net across the front of the hotel a few stories below the ledge, and still others had been talking continu- ously with him, trying to discourage him in his attempt on his life. Meanwhile, a search was being made for Ann. VVhen it began to grow dark the crowd broke up and shuffled away in different directions. Ken would get it over with now. He must delay no longer. He leaned out, far out, and closed his eyes, but he caught a glimpse of a woman leaning out a window in an apartment across the street. It was Ann! But what could he do? It was too late, he had lost his balance. He went careening down, down toward the side- walk. If only he had been sensible. Perhaps that net stretched across the front of the building was secure enough to save him. Thank God! He landed in the middle of it. He was saved. As he scrambled to a window and was helped in by two policemen he gazed down to what would have been a certain death. Soon Ann was there and explained that she had only meant by the note that she would be gone until evening, visiting with a friend across the street. The judge heard the story and ar- ranged for Ken to be given a job. Ken was more than thankful and learned to use liquor more wisely. Jack Randall ,47 at nf -0- THE STREAM Between a break in the forest Ran a cool, blue stream. Over the rocks and through gullies It ran as if in a dream. It passed the tall, white birches, And floated noiselessly by. It served as a home for the sly ones Below the azure blue sky. No one knows where it is going, As it quickly winds its way, Through the deep, dark forest As endless as the day. It seemed to flow on forever, As the clouds float up above. "Could it be, my friend, That this stream is seeking its love?" Jean Finnemore '47 THE LIVE WIRE l33l HOME-BOUND Kathy sat on the edge of her suitcase and tugged. There! The locks had finally clicked shut. She looked up into the smiling face of her nurse, Miss Evans, and her heart sang. Tomorrow she would be going home. Home! Home, which meant everything to a six- teen-year-old girl. Her mother would welcome her with open arms and her father would smile and nod understand- ingly. Her brother Jim would grin and say: "Gee, Kathy, itis sure great having you back homef or "Did I tell you the Johnsons have a new colt?', They were all so dear to her, espe- cially Shep, her -beloved dog Whom she had found in a bllizzard. Her mother would have her room all ready. Crisp, white, ruffled curtains would be g1'aceful1y looped back with red ribbons at the windows, her little dressing table with the gay white skirt and red bows, her rugs and her book shelves would still all be the same as when, Kathy had left them two years before. 'Kathy lay on her bed, tired from the strain of packing, and thought back two years ago when she had been brought here to Spencer's Sanatorium in Warm Springs. It had all seemed so unreal and strange. She recalled overhearing the doctor tell her mother that she would never walk again. But, some- how, Kathy began to get well, under the doctors, and nurses, care. She was still a little lame, but well enough to go home at last. That afternoon Kathy said agood-byv to her special little friend, Randy Owens. He, too, like Kathy, was an in- fantile paralysis patient, looking for- ward to a quick recovery. Seeing Kathy grow so well and strong seemed to fill him with courage and hope that some day he would be well and going home again. Finally, it was time for her to leave. Her folks would be there to meet her in the familiar little station. Perhaps Shep would be there, too, jumping up to lick her cheek in remembrance of his beloved mistress. It was good to be going home. Olga Haapanen ,49 IF if HF NEWPORT If you want a rest or change of sport just come to the town they call Newport.

XVanda Greene HK Bk QF A MEDAL F OR MOTHER The time was late afternoon. The place was the junior English room of Parker-ville High School. At the present time, lean York was very busy day-dreaming and looking out the window. jean's face could not be described as peaceful, for she wore a rather disturbed look. Ieanis thoughts were of her mother, who had been taken ill early that morning and rushed to the hospital. The doctor had said that Mrs. Yorkis condition was very serious and that it would be quite a while before she would be entirely well again. These thoughts upset Jean greatly. jean was not what you would call a model child, but would more likely tit under the title of a problem child, the reason being that jean did not like work, at every chance she could she would find some excuse for getting out of it. Regardless of this, however, she just took it for granted that her mother would do the work, therefore, why should she worry about it? And so Jean went on in l1er own gay, carefree way, while her mother worked and slaved at home. jean hadnit even noticed how badly her mother had looked the last few days before she had been taken to the hospital. But then, why should she? She had only been home long enough to eat, and sleep, and also make sure she had her allowance on time each week. However, at the presen-t time, Jearfs conscience was bothering her rather badly. What if her mother didn't get better? NVhat would she do without her? It her mother could only get bet- ter, she would work so hard to make up for her selfishness. No, her mother couldift die, not when jean had just come around to realize the mistakes she had made. As these thoughts ran through JC3.l1,S head, she was suddenly brought back into the surrounding again by Mr. White, the English teacher. "Miss York, it is your turn to suggest a topic sentence for our written compositions next week. Have you any?', asked Mr. VVhite. "Yes, Mr. XVhite," answered jean, "I would like to suggest the topic 'All Mothers Deserve a Medailfv Eldora VVade '49 THE LIVE WIRE !35l GRIN AND BEAR IT "lIello, Connie.

The Round-up was over, but the relief usually felt by the cowhands had disappeared. Still, in the air there was something which COl1lCll1,t be seen or heard. One couldn't feel by the touch of their hands, but its icy fingers of ex- pectation chilled their spines. Each of the cowhands went about his own work as usual, but with a nervous glance cast over his shoulder. Little Perry came out of the ranch house in search of something more in- teresting. His playthings, which meant so much to him, no longer held his at- tention. He wanted his daddy. He would be home that night, but it was now that he needed the big rugged fig- ure, who always served as a helping hand when things werenit as Perry would have liked. Slowly, Perry walked toward the coral, taking each step as though it were a task to pick his little feet up. Although Perry was only six years old, he knew. He knew something was wrong. Nobody had said anything, not even his mother, who usually took care of such things when his father was away. This morning when he had asked for a se-cond help- ing she seemed slightly irritated. Oh, yes, he knew. As Perry approached the coral, he inet Ned, the foreman, and said: "Ned, daddy is coming home from XVashington today. He,s been there for two weeks. Iim glad heis coming home. Arenit you and mommy glad, tooiw "WVhy, Perry, of course we are glad. Very glad. Your dad is a wonderful man and friend. lt's iust that . . .that . . "just what?

There is actually nothing wrong, but people let their imaginations annoy them. What say we forget it and go in the house to get ready for your f3.th61',S arrival? We are going to the airport to meet him, you knowf' No sooner had he finished than there came a heavy roll of t-hunder in the dis- tance. Instantly, everything deadened. The cattle stopped their lowing, the hammering of a cowhand ceased, the flies quit their buzzing. Suddenly, the sky blackened, a crash of thunder, fol- lowed closely by a huge streak of light- ning, broke loose. "Come quickly, Perry, we'll get drenched if we stay heref, The 'thunder and lightning were now taking turns. Barely had they reached the house when the rain came down in torrents. Amid the tumult, Perry sat wondering. How long will this last? When will I see Daddy? Oh, when will it s-top? After what seemed hours, it cleared off as quickly as it came. The sky light- ened. But the room was quiet, while Perryis mother sat with an unhappy, ex- pectant look on her face. Ned looked sullen. Perry didnit dare move. Sharply the 'telephone cut the silence. Perryis mother hesitated, knowing not why. Finally, as though making a serious de- cision, she picked up the receiver. "Mrs Theodore Webb? This is the United Air Lines, Inc.

The place where he was going to cut was a long distance from home, so he and his wife gathered together all of the dishes, furniture and other things that they needed and moved to the camp near the wood lot. The cabin was once owned by a wealthy couple who lived in the city and came to this sporting camp a few months during the summer. The camp and wood lot had been sold to a farmer. All this occurred forty years ago and the camp had never been used until now. In front of it, there was a well which had fallen in from the lack of use and care, and was now nearly sur- rounded with bushes. The small bushes had grown to be large trees and were ready to be cut for pulp. They moved in on a Saturday and got the bed and stove set up. Most of the day, Sunday, was spent arranging things as they should be. As the wife was putting a few things into the cup- board, she found a notice which read, "Whoever finds a platinum ring with side diamonds will receive a 31,000 re- ward upon return to the owner. Lost near camp. Signed, Sir Thomas Gil- man." Evidently someone, long ago, had lost a ring and had tried to End it by post- ing a notice that had finally found its way into the cupboard. As a matter of curiosity, she read it to her husband and put' it in her pocket without further thought. The only way in which the couple could get water was to haul it, so the husband decided to dig out, as soon as possible, the well which had fallen in. The next morning he started digging. The work was slow and tedious, because there were many rocks in among the clumps of dirt and gravel which had filled in the shallow well. When he had dug down about five feet, his shovel turned over something that looked like a small box. At the first moment, he thought it was the ring which had been lost so long ago. ln great excitement, he ran into the house and showed it to his wife. To- gether they hurriedly opened it and found a note which read "Kilroy was heref, - James Smith '48 lk ak lk NEVER CHEAT jack lived on a large farm in the country.

Jack had no trouble in catch- ing it. A few days later, he decided he would like to ride the colt again. He thought it too much bother to get the grain and carry it to the pasture. He said he would wave his hat, the colt would think it was grain, come after it, and he would catch him. The colt came up to NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL the hat, took one smell, turned around, and ran as fast as his legs could carry him. Jack thought perhaps he could catch him by chasing him. But the faster jack ran the faster the colt ran. F inally, jack gave up and Went back to the house.

But they are both quite forgotten when Kip gets ll glimpse of Andrea. THE LIVE WIRE Andrea, for a good publicity story, tried to play the game fairly in en- tangling Kip into a fake love affair. However, by 'the time Kip leaves for camp Andrea has ureallyv promised to wait for him. Paula and Coralie are willing to set- tle for Phil and Chub, two old "stand- bysf, thinking they are quite -nice after all.

A successful football dance, spon- sored by the Council, was held in thc Town Hall November 15. 'Several members of the Council and their adviser attended the State Stu- dent Council Convention, which was held in VVaterville 011 November 28. The convention was made up of sev- cral sessions, held in the VVaterville High School, which discussed teen age cantcciis. social functions in schools, and changes in curricula. One of the outstanding topics discussed was, i'Does Your Student Council Live Up to Its Itesponsibilities?" The kllllllllll VVinter Carnival was next on the Council's age11da. A new and dillerent program was planned for this year. Seven candidates for King and Queen were Cll0SCI1 by their re- spective classes and tl1e student body at large. Each school in the Central League was invited to participate in the winter sports and to select two attend- a11ts for our King and Queen on the night of the Coronation.

McDonough, Where the olli-' eers for the eoining year were chosen, Plans were made for several outstand- ing features presented by the club, which have proved to be both educa- tional and entertaining. The first of a series of programs was a lecture by Ralph E. Gould at the High Street Union Chureh. Mr. Gould is a Maine author, and one of his best-known novels is 'iThe Yankee Storekeeperfi Our next event was the Creek Ortho- dox Choir from Bangor. This was also held at the High Street Church and was most entertaining. The String Trio, 1-pciisniatl by lin' Sclnnnann Club ot Bangor, was another highlight of the year. The school library, now under the direction of the English Club, is being developed a great deal. The club gave ten dollars, which has been used for the purchase of magazines, books also have been donated by the club.

This year the number of students par- ticipating in the Glee Club and Mixed Chorus has greatly increased, due to the fact that a very Wide interest has been shown in fine music. Our sincere appreciation is extended to Miss Thorne, our loyal director of music, who has supervised the respec- tive Glec Clubs and Mixed Chorus for years. These musical organizations have provided our school with enjoyable se- lections and entertainment at several social functions. A new idea introduced in 1946 is again being carried out this year. A "Musical Quintetf composed of five girls from the Clee Club, has recently been formed. They are: Joyce Sheridan, Hanna Haapanen, Phyllis Ramsey, Marilyn Rich, and Jean Rich. The greater part of their selections are folk songs and classical music. This spring at the animal "Music Festivali' the quintet will make its first public appearance.

March 2. 1947 Dear Miss Dyer: I am sorry that I could not comply with your request for reply to yours of February 22 before February 27 owing to holiday delay in mail delivery and error in address. With the subject mat- ter which you suggested, perhaps it is just as well. I do not think I could write anything which would be of in- terest to readers of the school magazine. I have spent the greater part of my life in Newport. And it has been made up of the duties of the ordinary New- port housewife with the joys and sor- rows that come to the average woman of my age. You ask for a photograph of myself for publication. I have had none for Best wishes to you in your task of editing the school's annual book. Cordially you1's, Charles M. Barbour, jr., M. D., D. A. B. it 6 it years and I fear there would be few who would recognize it. I have always been very much inter- ested in the town schools and especially in the school magazine. My son and my grandisons were among the con- tributors of t'he earlier editions. I think I have a copy of nearly every issue. I regret that I cannot grant your re- quest for a biographical sketch. HOW- ever, I thank you for the courtesy of your inquiry and wish you and other members of the editorial staff all suc- cess in your work. Sincerely yours, Theo jose Barrows, N. H. S., Class of 1885. 0 ii 5 NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL I78l 8th Weather Detachment Chanute Field, Illinois February 17, 1947 Dear Joyce: I recently received your letter and I am deeply honored, that I may have the opportunity to contribute to the Alumni section of the "Live Wirev. I will try to do my best in giving a resume of my time as an alumnus of Newport High School. Shortly after graduation from high school I enlisted in the Army Air Forces. Naturally, the following months were merely routine-Reception Center and basic training. Upon completion of basic, I was assigned to the Air Weather Service. My first objective now was Weather Observer School. This consisted of a ten-week course at Cha- nute Field, Illinois. For several months after this I was retained at Chanute Field as an observer in thc Weather Training Command. In july of last year I applied for scr- vice with the Sth VVcathcr Squadron, to which I am now assigned. Upon reaching my new headquarters at VVestover Field, Mass., I was as- signed for detached service at Goose Bay, Labrador. There, I served in the Radiosonde Observatory of the A. A, F - R. C. A. F. Weather Station. Undoubtedly you are unfamiliar with Iiadiosonde. It is a method of obtain- ing wind speed and direction, tempera- ture, and relative humidity of the at- mosphere at all heights by the use of a radar set. After several months at Goose Bay, I was recalled to Westover Field, where I was informed that I had been ac- cepted to attend the newly opened Weather Forecaster and Analysis School here at Chanute Field. I have recently completed the first half of this school. Upon completion of this course, roughly the last of May, I will return to 8th Weather Headquarters for re- assignment. This about covers my activities of the last few years. I think the fact that I have a high school education has helped me a great deal in the weather service, especially in being eligible to attend Forecaster School, which is the most advanced technical school that the WVL-ather Service offers. I am enclosing a small photo that was taken recently and hope that it will be satisfactory for your purposes. Sincerely yours, Howard L. Shapiro. THE LIVE WIRE ITSJI Dear Miss Dyer: It made me happy to hear from a Newport High student. Itl has sheen some time since I left, hut I have not lost any interest in the school. My achievements since graduating are not outstanding. I attended the University of Maine for three years and spent nearly four more in the Army. My combat time was with the First Armored Division in Italy. At the war's end I was sent to Army schools in Eng- land and returned to Germany to organ- ize and instruct in "G, I." schools. I returned to the States December 9, 1946, in time to begin serving as Repre- sentative from the Detroit, Palmyra, Pittsfield, and Cornville district in the Ninety-third Legislature. My best wishes are for the success of your annual. Sincerely yours, Elton M. Rich. 0 Q H' NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL l80l 3 it 'XVWXV-fff' WAAXYWAAX' V54 AAXWXVW ' M146 Vfffffff ' 0 'AIYAXVVVVVW ff-Af-A Crimson Crier, Orono High School A very fine yearbook. I liked the way your print runs. Why not enlarge your Literary section? Messalonskee Ripple, Oakland High School An interesting yearbook. Your Lit- erary section is excellent. Why not have class pictures? Academy Review, Dover-Foxcroft A nicely arranged yearbook. I like your idea of having individual faculty pictures. The Rostrum, Guilford High School I like your flyleaf pages, sports pages, and informal service pictures. The Microphone, Hermon High School Yours is a good book. VVhy not have the faculty pictures nearer the front and the write-ups and other sections more distinctly separated? I also think that you should have a larger Literary section and an Exchange column. Lever, Skowhegan High School An excellent, well planned, and writ- ten uip annual. I think, however, that the book would be more effective if the Editorial Board and School Board write- ups and pictures were nearer the front. The Muse, Corinna Union Academy Your book shows a great deal of work. The Literary and Poetry is the outstand- ing feature of your line book. Bulldog, Madison High School Very good pictures and a V6l'y well planned book. The Scroll, Higgins Classical Institute, Charleston, Maine Your pictures would be more effec- tive if they were the other way around. The Literary section is good and the whole book was well done. You could do with more Locals. The Ripple, Hartland Academy Your book was well done, but a change of the layout from that of former years would begmore attractive. E. C. A. Rocket, East Corinth Academy Why not enlarge your book and have pictures taken inside. A good book. The Rocket, Carmel High School Yours is a good book, but the ar- rangement could be improved. 8 6 6 ADVERTISING INDEX Atlantic-Clarion Stove Co ......., 89 American Gear Co. ...,......,. 100 Abbie's Esso ..................,.......... 108 Andy's Dairy ...,.............,.......,... 111 Atlantic Restaurant, The New ...,..,. ,, .,.. 113 Barrows 8: Barrows ......................... 106 Bijou Theatre .,........,........ 107 Bangor Furniture Co. ....,.. 108 Broclcway's Flower Shop ...,. ,. 115 Bryson, I.
