So large is the crew, and so great the number interested that we have attempted to include all man- ner of material about the plane and its 1942-43 mission. 'l'he "Stearns '43" had its up and downs this year. No easy task is it to guide a huge airship in a ten-months' cruise! l'lans were changed. crew members insisted on arriving late, storms delayed, ditliculties arose-but, making the most of all these obstacles. we headed up in September with a load of ambition and good intentions. Each one was assigned to his particular task- often no more than taking care of him- self. and even that presented ditticulties at times. 'l'o otlset the strenuous work done on the part of the crew. many activities were provided. But activities alone were not enough. They also needed recrea- tion. for does not "all work and no play make .lack a dull boy ?" No place for dull boys in the world today! The "Stearns" prides itself 011 offering a well-balanced program in music, ath- letics, club work, and eontestsg and in this record we have tried to report on all manner of events that have taken place during the past year. XVe have also taken time to introduce you to each member of the crew individually. a line group indeed. Here and there we have inserted examples of their literary tal- ents. Even when their imaginations roam. they choose the field of the pres- ent conflict. Every crew member is earnestly bent on doing his part to help bring about a new world of peace where there will be no thought of, no interest in, war. llecause of war shortages we could not obtain all necessary materials to in- clude a complete pictorial section: never- theless, we have done the best we possi- bly could with the equipment at our command. 'l'o the previous crews of the bomber "Stearns" we express our thanks for enabling us to fly higher by tests they have made. 'llo the future crews we wish great success and clear flying.

Contact One good way to approach a new job is to contact someone who is already familiar with the workings of that par- ticular assignment. 'l'hcrcfore. we felt very fortunate while making last-minute preparations for flight to be able to hear from one who had had considerable ex- perience in the air. Un September 30, ",limmie" Regis. former member of fleu- eral Chennault's "Flying Tigers" in China. spoke to us at an assembly. 'l'he program took the form of an in- terview in which Mr. Regis was ques- tioned by Mr. llalc. Mr. Myers, aml Mr. NYitty. Xte heard something of the and adventures ligers from one make-up, maintenance, of the famous Flying who had actually been a part of the or- ganization. lt seemed to bring story- book excitement right into the audi-- torium, and we-marveled at the fact that Mr. Regis could speak so calmly of what mtist have been terrifying experi- ences. L Round Trip to Africa The weary postman of Richfield, Minnesota. trudged tip the long latte leading to the Collins home. 'l'he day was bleak and cold, and the mail car- rier's frosty breath rose in the morning air. ln his gloved hand he held only two things-the "Minneapolis Courier" aml a long letter bearing the postinark of the same city. Reaching the small front porch of the two-story dwelling. he de- posited the mail in the box and turned back towards the road. ln tive minutes he had disappeared behind the tall snowdrift formed by the country snow- plow. Over an hour later, young .lack Col- lins picked tip the letter addressed to him. lle had completely covered the sport and comic sections of the "Courier" --the front page held no interest for him, and was now staring meditatively at the letter. lle took his time about opening it: and he was not outwardly surprised at the missive's contents. 'lack knew that his draft number was up, aml with his classification of l.-X, he was not surprised to learn that he would be in- ducted and sent to lfort lleyeus. Massa- chusetts. in eight days. .Xfter all. what else could a person expect? x at -if wr " "l'en-shun Y" l'rivate -lohn l.. Collins. C. S. Army, snapped to smartly-he thought. "Not that way. you bone-headed jelly- fish!" roared Sergeant Mooney. Draw- ing himself tip to his full six feet. he informed this row of raw recrtiits that he-Sergeant Michael Mooney-was in the correct position. "l,ike this, sir?" one bright lad spoke up. "No talkin' in the ranks. you half- witted fugitive from .Xlcatraz. Now let's i so i try it again. Ten-shun! OK. Right face!" 'l'he thirty odd privates went into many interpretations of "right face". "Look, rlopes. when I say right face--." Ilere Sergeant Mooney went into an explanation of all phases of "right face" and related terms. When the meaning of his little speech seemed to be understood by all. he put them through a drill with a fair degree of suc- cess. llowever. the crowning Haw came as the squad was marching back to quar- ters. "On the double!" commanded Ser- geant Mooney. The privates looked at each other with amazement. All seemed at a loss to explain this command ex- cept Collins. Boldly he went up to the sergeant. "Pardon me. sir." hc stammered. 'ibut if you'll show me where the double is l'll he glad to get on it!" Sergeant Mooney was speechless. wk ir -is at jack Collins wandered aimlessly past headquarters after eating his evening meal. As he did so. his eye glanced at the large bulletin board hanging there. Out of sheer curiosity. he ambled close enough to read it. "Show tonight at eight for soldiers off duty-all interested in basketball please report to Lieut. 'lef- ferson-K. P. duty-all men in Company ll4 report to officers after supper for special assignment." XYhy. thought Jack. that tneant him! Bubbling over with ex- citement he rushed up to Sergeant Mooney's tent. All others in his squad were present and in the same state of excitement as -lim. "XYhat's up. sarge ?" "lley. quit yer shovin'. I wuz here fnst l" "Hope it ain't no hike!" Sergeant Mooney dispelled all this ex- citement by appearing. Xtith a sharp command he silenced the group: and then. in a very serious tone. he gave the news. "Look. yon bums, keep quiet. Every- one be at the dock in six hours in full equipment. Mere goin' across." Silence reigned for a moment. and then the men came to. Shouting and yelling. they hurried off to their pack- ing. 'l'hc time was short. but nothing could stop these Yanks. They were on their way now! lk Pk all is "Sh1. Quiet. now. Remember, guns out of water. no talkin'. and keep goin' no matter what. Oh, good luck!" One after another. the men of Coni- pany 114 silently jumped out of their barges and waded up to the noiseless shore. The first streaks of dawn were lighting up the dark sky. and in the dis- tance one's eye could just perceive the moon's gleam on the city of Algiers. It was the African Invasion! Silently the men reached the beach. Still not a murmur of life came from the shore. All around them. as far as they could see. men were landing in the same manner. Machine guns were hastily set up. scouts fanned out through the dense brush: in fact, every job was done to perfection. Pic. john Collins waded ashore. grim- ly carrying a box of machine gun bul- lets. He trotted over to the spot where his two mates were already assembling the weapon. and squatted down beside them silently. ready to start feeding the gun as soon as hostilities began. How- ever, nothing happened: and as the ad- vance units had already penetrated the thick sage to the coastal highway. the weapon was dismantled and, with his comrades, Jack made his way towards the distant city. I31l The sun appeared in full force as the :Xmericans entered Algiers. A few shots had been tired. but opposition was ex- tremely light. It seemed to be just an- other day to the native Nloslems. who were going about their business calmly. .lack Collins and his buddies looked up a narrow. dirty street and decided to investigate further. 'llhey had no busi- ness doing so: but, to tell the truth. they were quite disappointed at the lack of action and decided to find some if pos- sible. just as they entered the dark street. a fusilade of bullets niet them. There had been no warning. and thc Yanks had fallen into the trap neatly. Slowly they dropped. as if their bones had turned to jelly. Collins rolled over and lay still in the dust. Une. two. three hours slipped by. It was not until high noon that another tloughboy. yielding to the same tempta- tion that had enticed .lack to enter, made his way into the narrow street. Startled. he stared at the forms before him. lt was a gory sight. All three men lay in grotesque positions. sprawled in pools of their own blood. l'pon examination. the doughboy found no sign of life in any of the wounded Yanks: but. to be on the safe side. he sprinted out of the street and up to a soldier with a "walkie- talkie". Quickly a doctor was called for. As yet. few emergency cases had been reported, so it was not long before an ambulance rolled up. :Xttendants care- fully placed the three bleeding figures on stretchers. and within five minutes the ambulance was rolling towards the nearest field hospital. ll! 'lf lk Sli "Forceps" Quickly and silently the nurse handed the instrument to the white-clad doctor. "l'robe." With this instrument the doctor prodded with care for the bullet. He had already extracted four from the body of .lack Collins. and this was the last. Suddenly the doctor smiled under his mask. Taking the forceps. he got a good hold on the small lump of lead and brought it to light. He stepped from the room and removed his equipment. "Xl'ell. he'll live now." 'llhe surgeon breathed with relief. "Had quite a time of it. though. He should go back to the states. lt was too bad about the other fellows. wasn't it? They didn't have a chance." If if ii FY 'l'he small. gray steamer plowed through the calm Atlantic. Ou its sides and deck were painted brilliant red crosses. signs of mercy. Inside was the first contingent of wounded to return from the .-Xfrican front. 'l'here were l27 men. and among them was 'lack Collins. Still on his back. but cheerful as ever. he looked forward to seeing Richfield again. It was this thought that had kept him going through many dull days. All aboard the steamer were oblivious of the submarine whose periscope was a bare foot above the water 300 yards off the port bow. Inside the sub the cap- tain and mate were conferring in Ger- man. As the mate turned from the peri- scope. he spoke. "There is one there. and it has no guns. We could shell it successfully, llerr Captain." "Good Let me see. Yes, you are right. Give orders to rise." Silent minutes passed as the sub sur- faced. 'l'he captain and mate stepped out on the slippery deck with their binocu- lars. followed by the silent Crew. "She will make a good target. llerr Captain." Yes. Give orders to tire-but wait! What is that on the side of the ship?" lf?-'ll "It seems like a red cross, Herr Cap- Que of the tain." "So it is. Give orders to submergef' "Hut-" "Don't argue. Do as I say!" "Yes, llerr Captain." Silently the German reentered the sub, and in the Atlantic fog the slender craft silently disappeared in search of fairer game. nf wr 4- 4- Richtield's lone postman again went towards the Collins house, but this time his walk was lighter. It was spring in Minnesota, and everything seemed to know it. The singing birds, blooming flowers. and budding trees all appeared to be full of life. On his porch sat ,lack Collins, drinking it all in as if he'd never seen it before. "Good morniu'. jack. I got a whole bushel o' mail here fer ye'. There's a letter front Washington that looks like it might be important! Do ye want it now ?" "No, thanks, Mr. Ross. just set it down with the other letters and give me the C'01n'iz'r'.' Thanks." "Goodbye, jack. See you tomorrow." "Bye" ,lack Collins was already read- ing the sports. XYARREN DANIELL '43. 0 Teacher: "Give me a sentence with an object." Frosh: "Teacher, you are beautiful."

Football 1 942 .-Xs Stearns lligh School preparecl to open its lt?-12 football season in Septem- ber, there was one big question in the air: Could Coach XYentworth again pro- tlnee :mother winning team tlespite the loss of better than one half of the pre' tions year's great elub?

Brewer's offense was practi- cally nil. Stearns 20 - Brewer O. Stearns' second opponent was Old Town. in a game played in the Canoe City. Taking advantage of a fumble, Stearns presented a versatile attack which saw Fitzpatrick spark a long march and carry over to give Stearns a 6-O lead in the first period. junior Luke scored the Minutemen's second touch- down on a beautiful eight yard buck and Warren .Xstle switched to fullback in the final quarter and completed the afternoon's scoring with a 13 yard jaunt into paydirt.-Stearns 10 - Old Town O. Un the following Saturday Stearns lost its first game in two years to Kicker junior College. The lioys from Iloulton were big and fast and deserved to win. The injury jinx hit the INlinutemen's line hard in the opening period. Ed Cyr and john Brown, the hest men Stearns had in its forward wall, were lost. Brown received a wrenched knee. which eliminated him from the picture for the rest of the season. But despite the loss of two key men. Stearns might still have had a tie hut for the heart-breaking 15 yard penalty which came in the final period with the score tied at o-0 innnedi- ately after Stearns had stopped a Ricker drive on their own 25. The penalty gave Kicker a first down on the l0 yard line and Brown crashed over from the two on fourth down. That was it-Kicker 12 - Stearns 6. Though the win streak was snapped. Stearns was determined to keep its high school record clear. Mario Dilirederico took l3rown's place at guard, Dave llonya replaced Cyr, and Red Albert took over at end, Stearns advanced a step nearer its oli- l 36 jective seven days later by whipping jolm Bapst. After a scoreless first pe- riod Bapst blocked a kick and recovered on Stearns' three yard line. They drove over on two line smashes to take a 6-0 lead. This touchdown. however, snapped the lethargic spell which had held the Minutemen. They took the ensuing kickoff and marched 62 yards to wipe out the liapst lead. Mixing tricky triple reverses with passes, Stearns moved from their own 38 to their opponent's tive yard line. Fitzpatrick went hetween tackle and end to tie it up, and St. jolm put Stearns ahead. 7-6, with a success- ful plunge for the extra point. jolm liapst was held in check the rest of the way, while Stearns scored in the third period on l.uke's dash from the eight yard line. and again in the fourth period on a llihrederico to Fitzpatrick pass from the ll yard line. Stearns 21 - jolm liapst 6. lliggins Classical Institute was met and conquered the next Saturday. The game was close for two and a half pe- riods. lwut the prep-schoolers folded up and Stearns won easily. Stearns 25 - Higgins 6. The final game of the season was played at Dover-Foxcroft. If Stearns won this game. it would mean two straight years without a high school de- feat. Stearns pushed Foxcroft all over the field, hut wasted many opportunities. The day was extremely cold and fum- hles continually popped up when Stearns threatened to score. Eight times Stearns drove within Foxcroffs ten yard line hut scored only once, The first score of a reverse. St. jolm to Fitzpatrick to Bur- the game came late in the first period on goyne, from the lf? yard line. The score remained o-0 until midway in the fourth period when Stearns recovered a fumlilc l on Foxcroft's one yard line and St. john cracked the middle for a T. D. Fox- croft threatened for the first time. but vainly, in the last moments of the game. Stearns 13 - Dover-Foxcroft O. 'l'hus another highly successful pig- skin year was completed by Coach NYentworth and his Minutemen. XVho would have thought it possible three or four years ago that Stearns High School would have two straight undefeated foot- ball years? 'l'he reserves performed very well throughout the year. 'l'hey say that any team is only as good as its reserves. The boys wiho did so well in this capacity were Hurgoyue, Gonya. M. Dilirederieo, Manning. Gagnier, Gould, Civiello, Di' Rlarco. Gates. and Goodwin. lf there is any football next year, Stearns should have another good team. john l,uke. Jimmie Dilfrederico, Dick llurgoyne and Charlie Civiello, all backs with some experience, will return, while in the line Mario Dilfrederico, Dave lionya, llarold lliggins, and Ludgie Cyr have one more year to go.

'l'he .-Xutumn I.eaf Cabaret was one of the greatest social affairs of the year. "Snigg" l.arlee acted as master of ceremonies for the Debate Club and there was never a dull moment. Four- sotnes were seated at decorated tables placed conveniently :trotmd the :utdi- torittm enjoying thc fun and frolic. First the majorettes went through a very interesting routine: Barbara -lame- son did a tap dance: Yeronica Mclnnis sang two popular songs, "just as 'I'h0ugh You Xtere Here" and "My Ile- votion", 'l'he Rhythmettes, or better known as the "Four liecs XYith l'lenty of Honey." contributed "I'll l'ray for You." lYant to be let in on :t secret? 'luhn .-Xliberti's chorus girls who did such a dainty routine were: "I lectoru Legassey, "Boom" lfolsom, "Hob" Manning. Con- rad Gagnon, "Dick" llourgoyne, and "Bob" Mcl.ean. Everyone had a grand time the re- mainder of the evening to music fur- nished by "tins" lilimas :tnd his Com- mandos. YY, U 11, . Interlude Music is a wonderful morale builder.

'I'he tllee Club that day presented a fine program of choral and solo work. 'llhe guest of the day was a local head- liner, Mr. tleorge "Scotty" Mcl.ean, who has always contribtited his Scotch songs gladly to town and school programs. Millinocket's llarry Lattder was re- ceived with great applause as he sang 'HX Xtee llouse i' the Heather" and "Roamin' in the tlloamin'." 'l'he girls of the tllee Club showed re- markable promise, which was later on fulfilled in additional programs. ,i,,, 0 i- W7 "The Invaders" Little old Miss Milton climbed onto the bus wearily. lt was crowded as usual. and the seats were full of defense plant workers. young and old. She stood in the middle of the aisle hesitantly, until a young lad moved over and motioned for her to try to squeeze her thin old body into the seat, Miss Milton sank down very thankfully. It was a pity. that's what it was! ller beautiful, serene city with only a few necessary industries was transformed into a steaming, bustling mass of fac- tories, shipyards, and dii'ty men and wontenl 'l'he lovely residential sections. flanked by spacious bottlevards. were rapidly be- ing ttirned into rooming houses, and large "for rent" signs stood in every window. 'llhe fools! The tittel' fools! thought Miss Milton, to permit this pack of ship- yard "morons" to trapse through their private homes and scar their furniture, burn cigarette holes in the rugs. leave grease stains in the linen---and for what? For a few more dollars a week and some "flag waving" idea of being patriotic! XX hy. it wasn't even safe to go out on the streets :tlone at night. NYith every- thing dimmed out the way it was, and so many strangers abottt, it gave one an uneasy feeling. Miss Milton shifted her cramped post- tion :tnd clutched her poeketbook tightly. l33l She would soon he home. Thank heav- ens. she had had the presenee of mind to keep her own colonial nine-room home free from "invaders". No "rooms to let" sign hung in her window. 'l'he hoy who had moved over to make room for her in the erowded bus was now grinning at her in a friendly man- ner. "Kind of a tight pinch, lmh he in- quired amiahly. "Yes, it is." replied Miss Milton prim- ly. She might have to ride with them on huses. hut she certainly didn't have to associate with them. 'llhe hoy was unabashed, however, and kept on talking freely. 'llhe hus was becoming unbearahly hot and Miss Milton found herself wishing fervently for the ride to end. Appar- ently the young hoy found the heat un- eomfortahle. too. hecause he was unhut- toning the collar of dirty "coveralls" with one hand and with the other slipped olii a tight titting cap which let loose streaming hlond hair ahout his-er-her shoulders! 'l'he girl, for it was a girl, looked utterly dittferent now. Miss Milton was startled! XYhy this girl was hardly more than a child! Her curiosity aroused, the little old lady yen- tured a question. "Do you live here with relatives, dear "No." she answered, "I am sharing a one room apartment with four other girls. I know it must seem terrihly crowded." she added, noting Miss Mil- ton's amazed expression. "hut you've no idea how hard it is to find decent living quarters. .-Ks it is. we are faring hetter than some folks." ".-Xnd your parents." inquired the old lady. "do they realize?" "'l'hey're dead," the girl answered simply. "I grew up in a small town in the middle west with an old uncle. I worked in a drugstore." "'l'hen why did you come out here F" "Well," the girl smiled, "I suppose mine is the same old story. '1'here's a hoy--he's in the navy now, hut we plan to he married some day." She looked up at the old lady earnestly. "I wanted to do my part. so I came out here and got a jolr in the shipyards. I'm huying bonds, too," she added. "I don't mind the in- conveniences: it will all he worth it some day." The hus had stopped and the girl rose to leave. lmpulsively. Miss Milton rose also and touched her arm. "What is your name, dear?" "XX'hy.--Celia Lawton." "Well, Celia. would you like to have dinner with an old lady ?'y Celia smiled slowly. "1'd love to," she answered. "You're very kind." Miss Milton chuckled. "I assure you. my dear. it's for purely selfish reasons: I'm lonely, and hesides," she added crisply. "I like you." "You're very kind," said Celia, "and I'm delighted." 'l'hey left the hus together, an old lady leaning slightly on the arm of a lovely young girl in dirty working clothes, carrying a lunch pail. They made an odd contrast. "Oh! how nice," hreathed Celia. "It's so cozy and homelike," "It's been mine for over thirty-tive years," stated Miss Milton, "and I like it." "And the tireplaeef' exclaimed Celia. "and the lovely curved staircase! Did you design everything yourself?" "XYell. I eontrihuted ideas, hut it was completed hy a distant relative. .-Xnd now l imagine you're hungry, so if you'll go upstairs you'll Find the hath to the left. and l'll have a rohe laid out for you 1391 to change. Dinner will be served when you're ready." .Xfter Celia had left, Miss Milton seated herself on a lounge before the lire. She was feeling faintly pleased with herself and the world in general. Funny how one could become attached to a "snip" of a girl in such a short tinte. Why, it was almost like having someone of your own. What a shame that Celia must work and associate with those barbarous males that crowded on busses and in restaurants attd rooming houses. She was such a sweet girl and hardly more than a child. Miss Milton confided her new-formed opinions to Celia a few minutes later in the dining room. Celia turned mildly astonished eyes on the old lady. "Whyl" she exclaimed. "l thought the residents of this city realized. as everyone else must, that we defense workers ltave only come to do a job that has to be done: not to wreck and destroy the peace and seclusion of your lives. If it were possible for the occupants of this city to do the job alone. do you think we'd be here? No. sir! 'Those barbariansf as you call them. are plenty homesick and just as soon as our fighting forces have assured permanent peace. we'll clear out only too fast! I. for one. ani heading back to Iowa. a hick town. and a corner drugstore. I never really appreciated them before." Miss Milton was completely shocked! This torrent of words had not come from a child. Celia Lawton was a young lady with very definite ideas. And she had just performed an excellent job of expressing them. "Well," chuckled Miss Miltott. "you certainly gave me a shock, but I daresay I needed one." "Yes. you did." admitted Celia, 'ibut l40 nevertheless I'm afraid I spoke out of turn. You have a perfect right to feel distresses about the conditions. I'nt not blind to the changes that are being made. but you should realize tltat they're abso- lutely necessary." The old lady reached across the table and covered Celia's slim fingers witlt her own wrinkled ones. "You're right, dear. and I have been blind. but perhaps it isn't too late. l've been stubborn and a little foolish. I want you to come and live with nie. Celia, you and those other girls that are sharing that one room apartntent. Will you, my dear?" Celia sprang up quickly and ran around the table to hug the little old lady. "Yott're a darling," she cried. "why it will be wonderful. A real honiel No more hard cots. cold lunches, and scanty washroom facilities. The girls will love it ltere. And so will I. But." she sobered. "are you sure you won't regret it ?" "Of course not," laughed Miss Milton. "Now run along and tell your friends. I'll be expecting you Saturdayfl After Celia had left. Miss Milton re- turned to her lounge before the fire. "XVhat a topsy turvy world it is." she mused. This morning, which started out like any other day, had proved to be strangely unpredictable. The "invaders" were coming and, oddly enough, she cottld hardly wait. RUTH Soren '43, - An Englishman was visiting this country for the first time.

For twelve days now, I had read and heard nothing else but the story of the strange disappearance of Miss Penelope 'l'hatcher, daughter of J. P. Thatcher, multi-millionaire. -I. P. 'l'hatcher, the great international financier, P. 'I'hatcher. the tnan who talked with presi- dents and entertained kings. P. 'l'hatcher. who was left his millions by a shrewd father. and who in turn spoiled a perfectly good American family by lavishing too much tnoney on it and try- ing to btty happiness. 'l'he front page carried headlines on the 'l'hatcher Case. Penelope's mother, the socially prominent Mrs. P. 'l'hatcher, was prostrate with grief and under the care of several specialists. ul. l'. had ot'fered a 2510.000 reward for safe return of his daughter. The police of three states expected to break the case within twenty-four hours. -I. l'.'s own private investigators were certain that at last they were on the right track. Many suspects had been questioned and pictures of the 'llhatcher mansion. the family and even the dogs were plas- tered in the inside of every paper. As I said before, it was disgusting. l found myself thinking. "If it had been plain Mary jones or Sally Smith, the case wouldn't even have drawn a two-inch space on the hack page." llere was a girl who had disappeared. Noth- ing to show that she had been murdered. She could have eloped. She could have run away frotn all that sickening wealth. l'm not so crude as to be uusympathetic with the family, but l'll be blessed if I can see making such a fuss about it at a time when there is so much for everyone to think about-a world war going on and everyone trying to do something to help-just because Penelope Thatcher 145 I l had gone and got herself lost. Oh, what's the use? 1 threw my paper aside and turned on the radio. The voice of lYal- ter Xtinchell snapped over the air. "And now, ladies and gentlemen, I interrupt this broadcast to make a special au- llO1lllCClllCIli-YAIISS Penelope 'I'hatcher, missing daughter of P. Thatcher, has been found-she is well and in very good hands. I quote a telegram received by her father less than an hour ago-'Dear Pop, Sorry to cause you and Mom so much worry, but I think it will do you good stop Give my best regards to your private investigators and the police stop They weren't even warm stop I aiu free, white and twenty-one and was never so happy in my life stop I knew you and Mom would never let me do it so l took matters in my own hands stop Give the 5510.000 to the U.

" Rosftrui G,n.v1N '43, 0l The First Battle .lack tflirien was one of the few peo- ple who remembered that it was Colonel Brady's birthday. Today the Colonel wottld be ninety-seven years old. 'llo jack he was one of the most admirable persons who ever lived. 'lack had known the Colonel all his life. He had often taken 'lack upon his knee and told him daring tales about his experiences dur- ing the Civil XYar, for he had been a captain in the United States Cavalry and had seen action in all the major battles fought arotind NYashington and Richmond. 'llhis day -lack was especially anxious to see the Colonel. for he had wanted to ask his advice on a problem that was l bothering him. Each time jack went to school he ltad to pass Danny Foster's house and Danny never lost an attempt to try to tight jack. .lack was very much afraid of Danny and always ran away. Ile wanted to ask the Colonel if he was a coward for this. To many people this would seem a silly question, but 'lack was a queer boy in some respects. All his life he had read about great soldiers and the brave things they did. and he was always afraid that he would appear cowardly to others. This thought kept preying on his mind until he just had to ask the Colonel's advice. for he knew that he would understand. The Colonel was in his usual place under the old maple tree behind his large brick house. To him this morning na- ture seemed especially beautiful. The little stream bubbled gayly along, remind- ing him of the laughter of a troop of gay girls running through the meadows. He kept raising his head and seemed to be listening for some special sound. "-lack is late." he kept saying: and as the minutes went by. he began to get worried. Finally the Colonel heard run- ning steps, and .lack burst around the corner at a dead run. When he saw the Colonel he stopped short and began to advance slowly. The Colonel looked sharply at the boy and saw that he had been crying. This surprised the Colonel very much. for as long as he had known the boy he had seen him cry only a few times. The Colonel was very anxious to know the reason for this. It turned out that .lack had been chased again. He told the Colonel his problem and then seated himself at the foot of the Colonel's chair. The Colonel leaned back in his chair, closed his eyes and was silent for so long that 'lack thought he had gone to sleep. Finally the Colonel opened his eyes. and ,lack thought that he had never I seen him look so solemn. The Colonel looked down at jack. then smiled. "No, -lack." he said. "you were not being a coward by running front Danny. Some- how you have the idea that Danny can beat you. Well. maybe he can. but you have thought of his beating you so much that without even trying to tight him you run away. Your case reminds me of myself in 1862 when I fought in my tirst battle. You always thought I first fought at the battle of Manassa .lunc- tion. didn't you? That is not so. My tirst battle was a little skirmish in the Shenandoah Yalley. I was then a lieu- tenant under Captain hlohnston of the Slst l'cnnsylvania Cavalry. ll'e had been camping near Xtinchester when the scouts reported enemy cavalry advanc- ing up the road from Aquila. The cap- tain immediately ordered the troops to mount. and we started to advance. Now. ever since I had been sent to the Army of the Shenandoah, I had been learning about how great the rebel army was and how fierce they fought so that 1 was convinced that it would be impossible to beat them. "Now the time had come and we were advancing. My heart seemed to be beat- ing so hard that everybody could hear it. We advanced down the road and our Scouts reported that the rebels had taken up a position facing us with the Shenan- doah River on their right protecting that flank. The captain immediately de- cided to attack. He ordered Lieutenant Kelly and me to attack their left flank while he attacked the center. To me it seemed that the world was coming to an end: I found it hard to breathe. I was shaking like a leaf caught in a light breeze. I tried hard to control myself. but I kept thinking of all the stories I had heard of how fiercely the rebels fought and how invincible they were. 461 "That day I was riding a horse named Blue Devil. The boys had named him that because he really was a devil, and at twilight he looked sort of blue. To- day he was especially devilish. He kept dancing around, trying to throw me by some trick. Blue Devil had never been in battle before and had never heard gunfire so near. XYe reached our posi- tion and at the appointed time got ready to charge the enemy. I had been search- ing my mind, trying to find some excuse so that I would not have to charge. just at the appointed time one of the boys tthey were all pretty nervousl fired his gun by accident, Blue Devil seemed to jump at least ten feet into the air and dashed straight ahead with such fierce- ness that I could not control him. Be- hind me came the whole troop. He dashed straight towards the enemy, and I could do nothing but hold on to keep from falling. To make a long story short. we broke the rebel's left flank and turned their retreat into a rout. All dur- ing the battle lilue Devil dashed wildly about the field. After a while I quieted him down. and to this day I thank my lucky stars that I was riding that horse, for if he had not dashed towards the rebel line carrying me with him, I surely would have found some excuse and not taken part in the charge. Because of this I would have been disgraced by my fellow officers. I also learned another thing. Although you may be afraid of the other fellow, he usually is afraid of you. "Now, hlack, why don't you try stand- ing up to Danny once and you may find that he is just as afraid of you when you are ready to tight as you are of him." -lack sat a long time in silence think- ing it over before he started home. But instead of cutting across the meadow towards the stream, he started up the road toward Danny's house.

I47l gin! ,,. ,, Emmhrr Concert 'l'he annual combined concert of the band, orchestra, and glee club took place in the high school auditorium on Decem- ber l, 1942. A very good crowd enjoyed the program, which had many varia- tions, Miss Levine, Mr, 'l'sika. and all students who participated outdid them- selves, and the whole program went oft without a hitch. Many audience mem- bers complimented the directors on their tine work, and the general opinion was that this concert was the finest to be presented since the music clubs were or- ganized. A program like this needs a great amount of preparation, and the concert would not have been possible ex- ct-pt for the untiring eH'orts of Mr. 'l'sika Glam illqatq and Miss Levine. We owe a lot to them, and the large audience certainly showed its appreciation, Solo work was included as an innova- tion this year and proved to be a success. Some very line performances were turned in. and it looks as if the future will hold more concerts of this type. l., 0 Future Eagles of America "1 JIT we go into the wild blue yonder!" This may be the theme song of the Army Air Corps. but it also represents the am- bitions of the Stearns boys who started out on a new trail this year. the trail of the skyways. Aeronautics is another new course included this year, which has di- rectly prepared rt crew to handle the l45l Stearns Bomber through N42-43. The boys were held back at the first of the year for lack of textbooks, but not for long. Mr. Witty, now Second Lieutenant "Hrnd" Witty of the United States .-Xir Corps. started thetn in im- mediately learning the new terms con- nected with the modern air age until the books arrived. Then the boys were given training in meteorology, dead reckoning, pilotage. radio navigation. and celestial navigation. The course also included types. structure. and recognition of air- craft. Operation of aircraft instruments and factors dealing with lift. drag, and thrust were studied. along with types. operation. and positions of engines. cowlings. and nacelles. Stearns was very fortunate to have Xlr. XYitty as a beginning instructor in the course. He had taken government training in aeronautics and majored in meteorology. He was commissioned a second lieutenant for his efforts, and while he was here. he had to be prepared to leave at a moment's notice. Finally, near the end of Ilanuary, he was called to serve as instructor of meteorology in the .Xir lforce. Though Xlr. Xtitty was sorely missed. Mr. I'ratt ably filled his shoes. His ex- tensive knowledge of physics is a definite help in figuring out many of the com- plex problems which arise as a part of the work. .-..-0H....... The Science Club Science is used in making the ma- chinery and fuel for airplanes. and so in V237 Nlr. Russell, ottr far-sighted science instructor at that time. got to- gether a group of boys and girls inter- ested in science and that fall the first meeting of the Science Club was held, the constitution was drawn up, and offi- cers elected. The club is usually limited to fifty members. but at one time there were more, The requirements for membership are that a person must have a general average of 85. if no science is taken. or an average of 85 in some science, such as chemistry, biology, or general science. ln previous years the club has gone on trips to liangor. the University of Maine, or to a mill or factory of some sort. but with travel restricted this year those projects were temporarily dropped. The Science Club has at its disposal all the science equipment. including microscopes. laboratory equipment and the microjector. which is an instrument similar to a tnicroscope in that it not only enlarges but also projects onto a wall anything placed on the slide. The object of the Science Club is to promote an interest in science. to be use- ful in school affairs. and to promote friendship among sttidents.

Pop Concert XYhile the pilot was contacting the home base, he suddenly came across an annotmcement of a pop concert that was being held in the attditorium of Stearns High School. The pilot fixed the needle of' the dial and called to his crew to join him in listening. as they had been work- ing hard lately and were not due at the base for at least an hour. "lilashl The pop concert. of which the radio audience has already been in- formed. is about to begin. There is a large crowd here at the auditoritttn. The majorettes are running around waiting l49l on people and seem to be satistying the wants of all. 'l'he orchestra is now play- ing a number. Arthur Gallagher, Allan Gilchrist, Robert Gates and Robert Simpson really do very well as Stearns' new musical clowns in the next selec- tion. "We will now hear a monologue by Howard Gould. Ile proves that it is pos- sible to change character in an instant when he plays all three parts of a heart- breaking melodrama. "Next we will take a trip to the Old South to hear a skit by the three "nig- gersf' Earl Wingate. Robert Reed. and Warren llaniell. "'l'hc incidental music by the Stearns' band under the direction of Mr. 'l'sika certainly deserves high praise. "Stearns entertains next 'The Four Bees'-Phyllis Campbell. Lucille Nod- din, lrene Klcfluskey. and Barbara janieson. "After this applause dies down. a young 'lewish gentleman relates his ex- periences at a recent wedding. lint wait -that's no 'lewish gentleman: it's l'a- tricia llarrigan. "The great Santini closes this program with some of his mystical deceptions- you know, pulling flags from empty jars. drawing wands from his coat sleeve. and painting tnagic pictures. "Signing off-llope you all enjoyed this program," 'I'he pilot continued his journey. ..,.,+ 0 - . Majorettes 'l'he whistle blows! lt's the "half" and the spectators relax, bitt not for long. ,-Xnd no wonder. for amid coinplimen- tary whistles from the sidelines and an accompanitnent by the band the major- cttes are performing-with emphasis on the form! lt may be any one of the three majorette groups-senior, junior, or a combination of these two and the juveniles. The total number on the com- posite group is about twenty-five. lt is an inspiring sight to see those girls strut about and suddenly, almost miraculously, emerge in a complicated design. Their tine satin unifomis-some red. some white, and some blue-blend especially well in the formation of pa- triotic symbols. The climax of each per- formance by the entire corps is a huge Y and the national anthem-truly stirring. Roses to the whole troop and espe- cially to lietty l'errow for her expert leadership. Betty has been head major- ette for three years. This sason she has taken under her "wing" a large group of small pupils between the ages of six and thirteen to teach them to twirl like veterans. We all know the patience and time it must have taken to teach and guide these youngsters through dif- hcult and complicated routines. ltut lletty, with the help of her own senior troop. did it with gratifying results. Congratulations. 'l'he 'lunior Nlajorettes, who will take up where our Senior Troop leaves off, have also had a successful year. llere's wishing them lots of luck in the coming season. .imnl 0 .- Mrs. Thorne entered the butchcir's shop with the light of battle in her eyes.

Is this Such was the conversation that came to jimmy's ears as he lay lazily in bed. 'l'hey were the voices of his Irish land- lady and the IQCIIYCI' and VVestern's call boy. "I'se okay, Ma," jimmy called out as he heard her climbing the stairs. "I heard him." Of course the landlady was not really his mother, but she always looked after her boarders as if they were her own sons, and, though jimmy had been here only two days. he already felt at home. "All right, me son. but ye'd better hurry," came the answer from the top of the stairway. excited now. Ile had taken examination and now he jinnny was his tireman's was going to hear the decision. It had seemed quite easy to him and he was sure he passed it all right. Now he was dressed and ready to leave. As he rushed through the door he heard lXla's voice from the kitchen. "Good luck to ye, son," she called out. "Thanks, I can use it," jimmy an- swered. As he came up to the dispatcher's of- fice. he glanced up at the schedule chalked up on the wall. The names of the engineers. firemen, and their respec- tive engines were posted. His name was written above 'llom lilakely's, so he knew that he was in, and he was going to make his student trip with Tom. The next instant he was in the ofiice, his hand clasped warmly with the dispatch- ers. "Congratulations, Ryan. You passed your examination with almost a hun- dred per cent mark." - "Thank you, sir, and thanks for ar- ranging my student trip with Tom," jimmy said. "Well, everything's all set. Get a bite to eat and report back here in an hour," the dispatcher told him. jimmy was back before the hour was up. .-Xs he approached the engine, which was over the cinder pits, he saw VX'indy O'Hara oiling around his engine. He was the engineer with whom jimmy was going to make his student trip. "Hi, there," jimmy called out. Windy just glanced up and turned back to his work again. jimmy won- dered if he had done something wrong. jimmy was seated on the fireman's box looking out the cab window when 'l'om came up. Tom was a stocky man of about thirty years of age. He had known jinnny since he was a child. and had been friendly to him ever since. He had often taken jimmy up into the powerful engines while he was working. Thus through the years they became fast friends. "Well, here you are." Tom said, mounting the cab. "l've been looking all over for you." "Hi, Tom," jimmy replied. "Yes, I've been here quite a while. llow long be- fore we start F" "Anxious, huh?" Tom said. "XVell, it won't be more than a half hour." "Say, Tom, there's something 1'd like to know. VVhat's the matter with that guy XYindy jimmy asked. "Well," said Tom, "XYindy never makes friends with anyone until he finds out what they are. Once you get ac- quainted with him there's no one like him. And as far as talkin' goes, he's been on the road for twenty years and l51l never was known to speak a word after we was started on the run. 'l'hat's why we call him Windy." lt wasn't more than a half hour. but it seemed like ages to jiimny. Looking back he could see the yard switeher making up their train and the helper en- gine taking in water. Xl'indy was in the cab now, He motioned to Tom to come over and they stood there talking for about tive minutes. jimmy knew by their glances that they were talking about him. Finally Tom climbed down out of the cabin on NX'indy's side and then was out of sight. jimmy leaned far out the cab window and looked to the west. 'llhere was a sudden flash of lightning. but no tlmnder was heard. In a few minutes he felt scattered drops of rain strike his face. At last they were ready to start. The conductor climbed in, talked with Vtincly for a minute, synchronized his watch with lYindy's and then climbed down just as 'I'om came back. jimmy felt a sudden lurch as they connected with the train. 'l'he helper was on the rear. Windy suddenly reached up to the whis- tle cord. He blew two short blasts which just about raised the scalp on jimmy's head. 'llwo blasts came from the helper engine. then two from the conductor's caboose signifying that everything was in readiness. ltindy blew two more short blasts and then they started to roll slowly. 'l'he rain was coming in torrents now. 'llhey were shooting down into a canyon beside a stream swollen with the muddy waters of rivulets coming down the steep cliffs and slopes of the Rockies. 'llhere were places where the water was How- ing an inch or so over the tracks. It had been two hours since they started the trip. 'l'om had beckoned to jimmy at in- tervals to take the shovel. jimmy had become quite nervous. because he had never seen anything like this. so he wel- comed the chance to go to work and have something to occupy his mind. During the intervals that he was hr- ing the massive engine, jimmy would glance up at Windy O'l'lara now and then. lle was wondering why such a good-natured-looking man would give him the cold shoulder when he hadn't done anything. liesides that, he hadn't even said a word to him or 'l'om since they started. At any rate. jinnny thought, he conldn't complain about his work. llc had kept the pressure gauge at the lop all the time. jinnny was sitting up at the cab win- dow again as Tom took the shovel. In spite of his slight nervousness because of the storm. jimmy really felt wonder- ful. lle was a part of this enormous machine with the seemingly unlimited power surging from its pistons. Suddenly jimmy awoke from his day- dream. lle jumped to his feet with a start. closed his eyes and then opened them again. lle saw clearly now. It was real! Un a wide bend before them the rails were twisted and turned down into the madly swirling stream. A landslide caused by the unusually heavy rainfall had come down froln the steep slope and forced the roadbed into the stream. "jump!" yelled jilniny at the top of his voice. "jump!" he cried again, and he did so as he saw NVindy shove the throttle home and set the brakes and then jump himself. jimmy was thrown into the stream. He struggled valiantly as the merciless current tried to draw him out and under towards the middle of the stream. lie fought with all his strength in an effort to reach shore. The distance slowly shortened until nnally he could feel the rocky bottom. lle climbed up onto the l52l roadbed. For a minute or so he sat down exhausted. After he had regained a little of his strength. he got up and trotted slowly along the tracks. A short distance ahead he could see the red and green lights of the caboose. Finally he reached the scene of the wreckage. The engine and tender were both partly sub- merged in the swollen stream. One car was overturned at the end of the tracks. 'l'he rest of the train had been snapped free and was still on the rails. .Ns be approached, he saw a group of the men standing around on the side of the overturned tender with a lantern held so that the dim glow was directed down below them. "lYhat's the matter?" jimmy asked as he climbed up over the side. "'l'om lilakely's pinned in here," one of the solemn faced men replied. "llello, son," 'llom said as jimmy peered down at him. "llow'd you make it "No bones broken, 'l'om. llow about you "l ain't sure yet, but my feet don't feel as though they're still there." "XX'hat's holding you, do you know F" jimmy asked. "l think my legs are caught between the tender and the edge of the cab roof" 'l'om answered. jimmy lowered himself into the water and felt down 'llOlll.S legs until he came to cold steel. Satisfied. he shot up to the surface again. "You're caught between a tender lad- der rung and the cab roof." jimmy said. "l guess you'll have to do the best you can until the wrecker crew gets here, 'liOlll.n ltindy said speaking for the first time. "l'm afraid it'll be too late then," the conductor said. climbing up over the slip- pery side of the tender. "At the rate l this river's risin', 'l'om'll be under be- fore they get here." Only too well did every man present realize that. and especially jimmy. How- ever, there was nothing they could do but wait. ln the meantime jimmy dived down again and felt around the bars that were holding his only real friend pris- oner. Desperately he tugged at Tom's legs in an effort to loosen them. lle tried again. this time with a quick pull, and they gave a little but caught again at the ankles. jimmy pushed himself to the surface, gulped a mouthful of re- freshing and invigorating air, and went down to try again. llis efforts were in vain. XYhen jimmy came up again he saw that the water had risen considerably. Somethi ig must be done and soon' i ..,.. f"llhe only way we can get him out is to move the tender," jimmy said finally. lle looked around and wondered if there was any way they could possibly hoist that tender--even an inch. He turned to the conductor quickly. "Have you got a length of chain in your caboose jimmy asked suddenly. "'l'here are some chains there, but they're just short pieces that we use for temporary repair-sayl Come to think of it. there's a seventy-five foot steel cable still in there that we used the other day!" "Well. go get it, and quick! And somebody go back to the other engine and back up a few feet. Be prepared to follow signals. and for Cod's sake. take it easy!" jimmy was excited now. As NYindy started to run the engines. jinnny ex- plained his plan to the other men. "llc can throw the cable over the overturned car and hook one end to the train and the other to the tender. 'l'hat way it will pull up on the tender. or 531 let's hope so, anyway. It's our only chance." After wl1at seemed like an eternity. the men came back with the cable. Some- one had to hold Toni up now and keep his head pulled back so he could breathe. Xthatever was done had to be done in a hurry. jimmy took the end of the cable with a hook on it and descended again to the lower depths. He felt around to find something on which to hook it. There was a loop on the side of the tender used for towing: lle slipped the hook through this, pulled it tight. and the11 swam to the surface again. XYhen l1e came to the surface. tl1ey were just connecting the other e11d. "1 Dkay, signal to XYindy to back up," jin1111y yelled through the noise of the mad rushing river which was doing its utmost to take the life of a man in its mad desire for destruction. jimmy was stationed in the cab win- dow with his arm around Tom in such a way as to be able to pull at the first sign of release. Tom was coughing now after swallowing so much water. His face was ghostly white with a tint of red-orange from the dim light of the lantern. Now the cable was tightening. jimmy could hear it scraping over the side of the overturned car. .Xs it tightened, the sound changed to a piercing screech above the noises all around them. The cable pulled tighter and tighter. and even seemed to be stretching. The tender quivered slightly, but held firm. It seemed as if the cable must break any minute. Then suddenly there came a great upheaval! jimmy pulled franti- cally as he felt 'liOIl'lvS body give. The same instant he heard a loud report and then felt the water rush up around him. He reached above and grabbed some- thing solid. Hands were reaching down to aid them. First Tom was pulled out, and then welcome hands reached down to aid jimmy. jimmy was sitting 011 a railroad tie watching the wrecking crew go to work as the first rays of the sun found their way down into the canyon. He watched the huge derrick lift the tender up and lower it slowly to the rails. Then a tap on his shoulder caused him to turn around. Windy was standing there with a hand out-stretched. jimmy rose to greet him. "You're okay. kid," he said, and walked over to his engine.

They justifiably felt that they were on top and it was up to Waterville to come to Millinocket. The Elm City boys refused. so the Minutemen agreed to go halfway. to play on a home-and- home basis. for some benefit organiza- tion. but Waterville refused again, and no game was played. The team was magnificently balanced. No one man makes the team. If one man had an oli night, there was always someone else to take up the slack. junior Luke at one forward was a fast, tricky, and a good ball handler who averaged 10 points a game on shots from mainly around the foul circle, At the other for- ward lioom Folsom was a hard worker and steady scorer. Scoring almost all his baskets from underneath, he averaged 12 points a game. high for the team. At center Bob Fitzpatrick was one of the greatest playmakers in the state. His passing and rebound work were excel- lent and to top it otf he averaged ten points a game. At the guards W'arren Astlc and -Iohn Brooks teamed tip nicely. .-Xstle is undoubtedly one of the top guards in the state. Fitzpatrick and he almost always controlled the defensive backboard at least three quarters of the time. Besides being a bulwark on de- fense, he dropped in an average of eight points a game. As the guard john lirooks was an important cog in Stearns' fast breaking attack. He had one instruc- tion, "Get that ball down the Floor, and fast." He did this job well all year, though it was his first crack at varsity ball. With such a tirst string aggrega- tion there was little use for subs. Rob Boynton. however, did play an important role. As second string forward Hob averaged live points a game and saw a lot of action. The only other subs were Gates, Albert, and Terrio. These boys always saw some action and gave a good account of themselves. This team was a product of three years of hard work and building by George Wentworth, who for six years was one of Maine's most successful high school coaches. Though he had produced many great athletic teams, this year's Stearns basketball team was his best. In the opinion of most referees and coaches the Minutemen are just about the best Eastern Maine high school team ever to show up in team work, passing, the fast breaking attack and all around smart heads-up ball. There are many incidents which proved the Minutemen's greatness. For example, Coach Wentworth received a commission in Naval Aviation and had to leave the team after a dozen gamesg but instead of cracking up, the boys con- tinued their successful campaign under Frank Myers. Une more example was the Old Town game, the last high school game of the year, on which depended an undefeated season. Old Town was the most vastly improved club in Eastern Maine. which Stearns was forced to play without the regular live for the first time, as Boom Folsom. highest scorer on the team, was over age. But, Bob Boyn- ton stepped iu and played a magnificent game, considering it was his lirst full as- signment, and Stearns won 54-39. Yes, there is no doubt about it. "The team that George built" will go down in Maine basketball history as one of East- ern Maine's Greatest. Next year Stearns will have to start all over again. Fitzpatrick, Folsom, Astle, mainstays of two great Stearns teams, will definitely be gone. along with subs Albert and Gatesg and in all prob- ability -lunior Luke will be in the service before another year rolls around. Thus, the only regular to return is -lohn l57l I t -I Brooks. the only sub Bob Boynton. The new coach. Mr. Friedl. will have to de- pend a lot on the upcoming jayvees. Bur- goin, Goodwin, Higgins, DiFrederico and james Brooks. Post Season Games . . . Four post season games were sched- uled by the Minutemen against three of the toughest teams in the state. Two were with a soldier team of former col- lege stars, one with the Western Maine High School Champion, and a fourth with the State Prep School Champions. The tirst two after-schedule games were with Dow Field of Bangor. Every one of the visitors had had college varsity experience, and in the tirst tilt they held a 18-32 lead in the third period. It looked then as if Stearns had gone far out of its class, but a spirited rally closed the gap to 36-39 at the gun. The Minute- men were anxious for revenge, and a re- turn match was arranged one week later. The Boys in Blue hit their peak. and led by Astle and Fitzpatrick they romped over the soldiers 45-24, far better than Colby, Bates, or Maine had done. But the following week they traveled to Portland to meet the Western Maine Champions, Portland High School. The teams were evenly matched, but the home tloor advantage gave Portland the edge and Stearns lost a hard fought bat- tle. In the last few minutes Stearns got desperate and Portland piled up a 36-23 margin. which made things look a lot worse than they actually were. When two teams as evenly matched as Portland and Stearns met, the home floor crowd was bound to make the ditference. It did. Stearns came back from the Portland defeat to close the season with a 32-29 win over the State Prep School Champs. Higgins. Fitzpatrick was the big man in the win. Astle, Luke, and Folsom also played a big part in making their last game for Stearns a winning one. The Higgins game drew to a close one of the most successful sports eras any school has had. Over the last two years under George 1Yentworth football. baseball, and basketball teams had an all around record of 51 wins against 10 losses. Stearns hasn't lost a basketball game to a high school on her home floor since December of 1941, when Bangor won a 28-24 decision. Stearns teams of the future will have no easy time duplicating the feats of Astle. Luke, Fitzpatrick, Folsom, Ed Cyr. 'lohn Brown, and the many other boys who have combined under the coaching of George Wentworth to put Stearns up at the top of the eastern Maine sports picture . . . Basketball 1942-43.

BUY! BUY! Junior Red Cross To prove to ourselves that we are not selfish in our interests, in january we took on a definite junior Red Cross plan. Representatives were chosen from each home room and at the second meet- ing otiicers were selected from the group. The object of the program in the school is to interest students in putting their spare time to good use doing things for others. This took the form of writ- ing letters to servicemen, making scrap- books for the children's hospitals, and bringing books from home for the school library and Army camp libraries. Then, too, Home Nursing and First Aid classes were organized. lloys and girls are writ- ing to students in England, and are bringing old games and other needed articles from home to help entertain more servicemen in their recreation centers. CT- 0 Cheer Leaders Swish--they're on. "Fight blue! Fight white!" The gymnasium rocks and sways with the boisterous cheers from loyal rooters clapping their hands and stamping their feet. urging their team to victory. As soon as the referee blows his whistle. off they scamper to do the rest of their cheering from the sidelines until another time-out or period. The cheer leaders. Muriel llavis, Ruth Soper. lluska Hatfield. lrene Campbell, and Vivian l'lourd added to their little group, in the middle of the season, two boys, "Holm" Mcbean and "lIector" Le- gassey, who showed equal brawn, brain aml spirit in leading cheers. They proved their worth at liangor, the only trip which they had the opportunity to make this year. when the opposition was really tough. "Forward, March!" "By the right Hank, march! To the rear, March! Company, halt! About, face Y" Not a military training camp, but an- other new war-time feature at Stearns. lYe can't forget the elementary training for the crew of our bomberg so in jan- uary as a part of the Victory Corps, which was formed this year, voluntary military drill was offered to the high school boys. Ninety-six boys were regis- tered in two weeks, ready to receive their training every Monday night in the auditorium. Officers of the Maine State Guard. under Captain Thorpe and Lieutenant Oberg. started right in or- ganizing and drilling the boys. Some of the boys had joined the Home Guard and. having had some experience, were placed in command by Captain Thorpe. "Hobby" lilanning was placed at the head of the company. which consisted of two platoons commanded by Platoon Sergeants Earle Boutaugh and Bernard l.arlee. Three corporals were appointed tcmporarily for each platoon. and later these were replaced by those who showed superior effort for ability. The boys went at this seriously and showed much interest. They considered it as fun, and yet they understood the purpose of it and went at it as true sol- diers. There were a good many who turned left at the command "right face," and a good many who went "by the right flank" when told to go "by the left Hank." But after some practice the boys began to get the hang of it, and it wasn't long before they were performing their commands with reasonable precision and alertness. Having this training now will save Uncle Sam quite a sum of money and put the boys that much farther ahead when their time comes to enter active service. l59l i IiIIfl.I l.I.l li luxl H1111 II Il.1l--.

She was speechless. 'l'o think that she, a senior in high school. had been invited to one of Klrs. :Xshley's teas for boys in the ser- vice. tlolly. what girl wouldn't jump at the chance. She'd meet lots of interest- ing boys, and-oh, what would she wear! .Xroused into awareness of her pres- ent surroundings, she turned to go up- stairs. only to tind that she still held the telephone. Later that afternoon Corliss. attired in a blue sailor dress which made her hair almost auburn, rang Mrs. Ashley's bell. "Good afternoon, miss." A perfect model of a butler opened the door. Corliss walked boldly into the beauti- ful room. and attained a pose that she had long practiced before her mirror. She hoped she would be noticed by someone. The room was full of sol- diers. "1 would wear a sailor dress, wouldn't ll" thought Corliss. "'l'here you are. my dear." An elderly lady approached her. "l'm at my wits' end. 'l'he maid's sister had an accident and she had to leave. llo you suppose you could help in the kitchen? The cook could tell you what to do." "l might have known." thought Cor- liss. "l'in hookedg l can't say no." Hut aloud she said very sweetly. "I'll be glad to help you, Mrs. Ashley." XYell, it was one way to hide her sailor dress-under :Ill flllrllil, 'l'en minutes later she was busy slic- ing bread for sandwiches. Through the kitchen door she could see Louise Lan- ders. a beautiful blonde, talking to a few soldiers. Corliss viciously attacked the loaf of bread, determined not to look through the door again. She gave so much attention to the bread that she did not notice the tall. young soldier who had entered the room. "l'ardon me. but Mrs. Ashley sent me for a glass." Corliss swung around. She could feel the blood rushing to her face. She was thinking that this tall, blue-eyed young soldier was easily the answer to any tnaiden's prayer. NYhile she passed him a glass from the old-fashioned cupboard. he introduced himself. Private Robert Lock of lies Moines, lowa. And what was she doing out here in the kitchen? Surprisingly she found herself explaining to him. but linally she forced herself to remind him of his mission for Mrs. Ashley. Corliss watched him leave the kitchen. She liked the way he walked and the nice way he smiled. "1 hh. what a dope l am!" she told herself. "l guess l'll do the dishes. l'd never dare to go out there now." "May I help you with those F" l'rivate Robert walked into the kitchen and smil- ingly picked up the dish towel. "Arial by the way, l dou't believe you told me your nanicin "1 th, happy day." thought Corliss. ".-Xren't l the lucky girl! l guess Mrs. .Xshley knew what she was doing when she sent me out here." lEI,l.l-IN Nlclaaxx '43, ,,,.,7, Y U Repentance Robert Rhinehart was the outcast of our gang. lle was the so-called "dope" in our estimation. the one who was never included in any of our plans. lle was rather tall. but he had a little stoop as though he was carrying a heavy load. flis face was ashen gray, and his hair l61l W- ll 4,----.-Y 41 Q was cut in the 'German bob fashion, which gave him the appearance of a wax mummy. He was always regarded as different from the rest of us. There was something about him we did not under- stand. He so longed for friends, that any time one of us would go around with him, he would do anything for us to show his appreciation. I remember one time he wanted des- perately to get into our club. but we re- garded it as a joke and told him if he wanted to join our club he would have to jump from a tall pine tree to the ground bare-footed. Of course he de- clined. Another time we began to praise him and tell him that he could ski better than all of us and that he could do anything on skis. We told him that he could even jump over the ski jump we had made. which no one dared to try. NYe got him so pepped up that he tried. As he pre- pared to go down. we knew he was scared stiff. lt was a pity to make him do it. because he was sure to get hurt. Ile tried it, and as he went over the jump. he was just a maze of skis. He landed in a cloud of snow, and we rushed down to see him, knowing that he was hurt. lle looked at us with a proud smile on his face and passed out. ll'e brought him home only to find out that he had broken three ribs and his right leg. We did not even go to see him during the three months that he was recovering. We figured it was his tough luck. lle liked to hunt and fish because he could do that alone. He was evidently our superior in both of these sports, though we were ashamed to admit it. He was also superior in his school studies. There was not a question he couldu't answer. He read extensively because of his loneliness. lle would go fishing l every day during the summer perhaps just to catch one white perehg he would get his long before we would get ours. One of the ways he used to try to get our attention was to tell us some dra- matic lie. He would tell us that some- thing had happened, and we would get all keyed up and full of questions. That would make him seem important, and it would please him tremendously. NVe would arrive home all excited. only to find it was a lie which would greatly disappoint us. Une day he got in a fight with one of the boys. We used to like to beat him fiercely. 'l'his time the boy practically killed him. Robert was covered with blood: his clothes were torn ragged. He just got up and walked away grimly, amidst our incessant jeeringg but he would not say a word. We never took him on any of our trips or hikes. XYe always left him at home to sulk around by himself during the hot summers. The only ones that would play with him were the young children. He would be seen many a time walking with little children around him, and then we would call him a sissy. a coward and a "no-good-for-nothing chis- -v lei' As time went on, he grew to be more isolated from us. He read more and stayed off by himself. We got so that we just disregarded him. He grew to be quite tall, but still with his tell-tale stoop. We thought of him as a miserable dog, that would sulk around the gutters. We did not hate him. We just felt like kick- ing him and picking on him. When he grew to be twenty-one we started to wonder if he would be called for the Army, but we were mistaken be- cause he enlisted in the Marines after l'earl Harbor. 621 XYhen he left no one paid very much attention to him. A few months after he left. I got a letter from him. He said that he knew that I understood him and that he forgave the boys for what they had done to him because he knew that they did not know what they were doing. lle said: "I expect to be called into ac- tive service immediately and I'm going to tight hard so that I can help to pre- serve the America that has raised such good men. 'l'hey are the men that will make the backbone of our fighting forces. l never held them in contempt any of the times that they played any foul tricks on me. I want them to join the service and tight their best, and l know they will. God bless you and good-by." NVhen l read this letter to the boys they broke down and cried. A'Good ol' Hob. Good ol' Hob!" was all they could say. .-X month later his mother received this telegram: "XYe regret to inform you that your son. Robert K. Rinehart, has been killed in action." Later we learned that he was killed while storming an enemy position which had greatly hindered the allied advancement. lle was found near an enemy machine gun with his head blown off. So the boy that we called a coward had turned out to be more of a man than any of us. lle had given his life for the America he so dearly loved and for the people who had caused him so much pain and suffering. When the boys heard of this they all enlisted to pay back Bob for all of the suffering they had caused him. They could at least do this for him. It was his only request. 'l'he boys have now seen action in all of the branches of the service and in all corners of the globe. Three have gal- lantly given their lives in action to pay back the huge debt they owe Bob. Two have won Congressional Medals of llonor. 'l'hey have all fought heroically so that they may deserve Bob's words: "l forgive you." Emu, l:lIll,"l'AL'Gll '44. .0l, "liar Mc and My Gal"-D.

'liwo objectives of the high school's war-time program to which the victory Corps is related are: t l J 'l'he training of youth for that war service that will come after they leave school: and 129 the nation-wide active participation' of youth in the cominun- ity's war etlort while they are yet in school. Xthether curricular or extra-curricular in character. some of the objectives of the high school's war-time program which the Yictory Corps will foster and promote are: war-time citizenship, physical Iitness, military drill. compe- tence in science and mathematics, and community services. The requirements for general mem- bership arc: l. 'l'he student should be participat- ing in a school fitness program. 2. 'l'he student should be studying or have studied a prescribed course of study appropriate to his age, grade. and abil- ny 3. 'lxhe student should he currently participating in at least one important continuing or recurring war-time activ- ity or service. such as air raid messenger. Red Cross services. model airplane building. farm aid or salvage campaigns. General membership will have meaning only if it represents active student par- ticipation in the war effort. ln order to qualify for membership in the ,Xir Service Division of the Yic- tory Corps the students must be plan- ning and have begun preliminary prepa- ration lor service in the armed forces as aviation cadets or as aircraft repair and maintenance workers. Nlemhers of the Production Service Division, under the direction of Miss Comstock. have begun preparations for service in war industry, agriculture, or other essential civilian productive occu- pations. as distinguished from service occupations. Alr. Cohlfs Service Division will pre- pare members for service in some branch of the Navy or Nlerchant Marine Qother than Naval .Xviation,J. 'lille Land Service Division is under the direction of Mr. .-Xkerley.

I fan l Outdoor Sports Another bit of recreation engaged in by the crew took the form of a winter sports meet at East Millinocket. Under the direction of Mrs. Pierson and Mr. Rosebush, the skiers left early Saturday morning on the twentieth of February to participate in what promised to be a great event. liecause of melting conditions and other catastrophic events the day was greatly marred by Stearns' loss and Schencles victory. llowever, we took it in good part. Richard Boynton and Atlee Goodwin were high scorers of the day from our crew and saved us from being completely outclassed. There was a coronation dance affair in the evening. The crew had a fine time. but about dance-time crew mem- bers had to leave to catch their bus. Everyone agreed that it had been an ideal way to spend a Saturday. Our thanks to East Millinocket entertainers for their hospitality-and their baked bean supper., De-dah-di-dit! No, it's not baby talk. These are the sounds that were heard just after the February vacation, as some of the boys and girls entered into another new field as a result of the war. For no bomber crew is complete without its radioman, and this is just another step in outtitting Stearns Bomber. The U. S. Army Sig- nal Corps has prepared a complete course for learning to send and receive telegraph messages. In order to main- tain its reputation as being o11e of the best equipped schools in the state. Stearns has made this course a part of its curriculum, open for boys and girls who are interested. The complete course has been made tip and recorded by the Signal Corps and consists of seventeen twelve inch two- sided records. It was made out to be a half-year course, but it was not possible to get the records at the half year. How- ever, under Mr. Cobb's capable guid- ance. the class got right down to busi- ness and proceeded comparatively well. The objective at the end of the course is to be able to receive ten words a minute. Our school also has the equipment for sending messages, so if there is time the class will also be given training in this. 0 11 Visiting Day The great day had hnally arrived, The pupils of Bliss Ross's fourth grade were so excited they could scarcely sit still. This was the day for which they had been planning and waiting for over a month. Today was visiting day. Every pupil's mother had been invited to come to Kent Street School at two o'cloclc to visit for the afternoon. Little lirisco Savaneo, who had been in the Lfnited States for less than a year, was more excited than the rest of the students. This was the first time his mother had ever visited school. He was anxious to show her what it was all about. and how he got along with his American playmates. ".Iimmy." said Miss Ross to one of her pupils, "you must stop teasing lirisco. You must remember this is the first time he has ever heard of or taken part in Visiting Day. Briscof' she continued. "you must try to be quiet for about ten more minutes. Then you will be able to show the guests all your treasures." "O, Teach'. we really gonna hava da ica-krem?" asked little Brisco excitedly. At this moment there was a knock at the door: a few more of the mothers had arrived. Miss Ross was kept busy for the next ten minutes answering the door. At last she said, "XYe are now ready l67l to st:11't our t-xt-1'ciscs.

So far, they number eight. The loss of that number of connnissioned otlicers on any stall' would be keenly felt, .Xnd so it is with ns on the "Stearns '-TS." lfive of these were called last vear: Nlr. Rollins, Nlr, Nlcklilliain, Blr. Hall, Nlr. Crocker. and Nlr. l'atten. Three more. Coach Xlientwortli. Mr. .'Xliberti. and Nlr. lX'ittv, have been called recent- ly. All of these teachers were well liked at Stearns. ln fact, most of them were extrenielv popular with the student body. The teachers who remain here. how- ever, have not been inactive in the war etlort. Nlost of the work of issuing ration books has been done by thein. They worked very hard on this, and there are no complaints coming about their services. Sonic are on duty as air raid wardens. airplane observers, and home nursing attendants. The teachers have also helped in other ways, lfor instance. there was a war stamp drive and the teachers heart- ily endorsed it. The drive was quickly organized into a competition among the home rooms. The one selling the most for a vveek would receive a Hag, donated by the student council. They could keep the Hag until someone outdid them in buying stamps, U01 Evacuation 'I'he fit'st of March found a marked falling-off in numbers at Stearns. Only the observing noticed at the beginning, but gradually vacant seats could not be overlooked. And what was robbing Stearns? The outside world in the guise of N. Y. A. schools had cast its spell over many seniors. Quoddy posters and advertisements flooded senior home rooms. and for a time indications were that the class of '43 was about to dis- solve. Anyone eavesdropping around senior girls' home rooms heard first the questions. "What uniforms do we wear?" and "How many dances a week are there ?" but those who were truly in- terested chose a particular branch of work. and made the change with the idea of actually accomplishing something. When the initial excitement died down. many had chosen the field of war work to formal education. N. Y. .Y schools offered a variety of courses in shop and airplane work. plus very attractive living and financial ar- rangetnents. Students leaving Stearns in good scholastic standing were al- lowed. on the satisfactory completion of their N. Y. A. course. to receive di- plomas with their class here. 'I'he course was worthy. and those who took advantage of it obtained additional training which Stearns is still unable to furnish. Reports from Quoddy students were enthusiastic from the beginning. Stearns congratulates those who were successful both here and at the Quoddy X. Y. QX. center. ii OH? "I lalt. who goes there?" ".Xmerican." ".'Xdvance and recite the second verse of the 'Star Spangled liamier'!" "1 don't know it." "l'roceed. pXmerican." The Future 1Yhat are you going to do after you graduate F This is the question which every high school student is asking himself and others. 'llhe seniors are particularly in- terested in the problem because they have less time in which to plan. 'llhe war has made this question even more confusing and undecided. Many students who in 1940 and 1941 already had ideas for the future have had to change their plans. Some boys who have reached the eighteen year draft age may not even have the opportunity to finish their senior year. lf these boys had by any chance planned on college, the idea is definitely out. As for the girls. they feel that they can do more for the "war effort" by speeding up production in a defense plant. Hut on the other hand. there is the opposite opinion that if they can't get sotne specilic training in another field of work, they will be out of a job after the war. 1t is a vital question and sotne will not have any choice, but for those who do, we know they'll realize that at this period in our lives our country's need is more urgent than our own personal se- curity. After the war, we tnay not have jobs waiting. security and well planned or- derly lives. llut wc'll have our free- dom! And as long as we have that. we can go on-we have before.

Culpeper of llighland Avenue, sprawled on the dining room floor. Although it look them three hours to find the dining room in the huge mansion, the investi- gation began as quickly as could be ex- pected. lnspeetor Philo T. llawkshaw. the super-sleuth, was in charge. He was told that Rlrs. Culpeper had keeled over on her face at lunch, after drinking a slightly bluish cup of coffee. The other members of the family had merely thought that she was a little sleepy. Therefore two days had elapsed before it was discovered that it was something more permanent. The questioning started in the usual manner with the butler lirst. lle was a tall. thin-faced. beady-eyed individual with a furtive. uneasy manner. In the course of the cross-examination it was revealed that he was a convict on parole from a life sentence. The police had a long list of his achievements. lle seemed to be a jack of all trades-pickpocket dope peddler, stick-up man, murderer, saboteur. and general dirty guy. lle was above suspicion. however, since his third cousin on his father's side was a friend of the mayor. The only other servant in the house was the maid. She was a dark, power- ful woman with a wild look about her, eyes that apparently did not focus on anything in particular. ller questioning was rather difficult to carry on because of the fact that she could not talk. l-ler only replies were half animal sounds or childish gibbering accompanied by ges- tures with a heavy carving knife. They soon learned that Mr. Culpeper had hired her a few night previous when he was feeling a bit sporty and then did not know how to hre her. During this inquiry she was obliged to hide for a few minutes while six men in white quietly ransaeked the house. They said they were attendants at the insane asylum and were looking for a dark. heavy-set woman, carrying a large carving knife. :Xt about this time two officers were busily dragging out the body of a plain elothesman for whom the maid had re- cently poured a cup of coffee, They were accompanied by the butler who was guiding them out to the front door. The suave Klr. Culpeper was next. lle was a porlly. fat-faced man with thick lips twisted in a perpetual sneer. and heavy dark eyebrows. lfor some nn- known reason. the butler always called him "Chief" The inspector could easily imagine how broken up he must be, since this was his third wife that had died in the same way. Hy a strange coincidence, Mr. Cul- peper had a hobby of catching poison- ous snakes which he kept somewhere in the house. Even the butler had been un- able to locate them. although he had spent considerable time searching. junior Culpeper was then questioned. For the first three hours all they could extract from him was a lot of shouting for his lawyer. The inspector quieted him. however, by patting his head with a handy bookend. junior resembled his father in regard to his thick. loose lips and dark com- plexion, but lacked even a reasonable facsimile of a chin. Freshly arrived from his third term at reform school. .lunior knew all the answers, lle admitted that he had three bottles of arsenic in his room. hut claimed that he kept those for food tlavoring.

LEND UNTIL IT HURTS-THE AXIS 1751 Revelation lVhaml Hob dropped his other shoe to the floor and stretched full length upon the narrow army cot. His con- science was having an 'argument with his half that was not so righteous. This is how it went: "I suppose I ought to write that letter to Nana" "Gee, I'm uruful tired though-" "I suppose she couldn't have been tired when she baked those cookies and knit those socks: it will only take a few minutes." His bet- ter half having won, llob started put- ting on his shoes when the door of the barracks closed with a slam. and he looked tip to see 'lled XVilliams, his best pal, breathless and excited. running to- ward him. "Hob, you lucky guy! lint you don't know about it." 'lled exclaimed. panting, ".Xbout what? Say. what's up any- way?" llob asked with a puzzled expres- sion on his face. "XVell, it's like this." 'l'ed explainedg actress whose pic- ! lVhat's her "you know that movie ture you always go to-oh name ?'l "Von mean Velma Ross," liob hur- riedly supplied the name of his favorite actress. "Yuh. that's her. XVell. anyway she's coming to camp for the big hop tomor- row night, and she needed an escort. S0 they put all the names in a hat, and she drew---yours Y" For a minute llob was too surprised to speak. 'l'hen, "lVowl Say you aren't kiddin'---are you? Gosh! Isn't this won- derfull l've been dreaming about her since my freslnnan year at school." "lt's the truth all right. 'l'he Sarg just sent me over to tell you. You lucky stiff! XVell. I gotta go Iind a date for myself. Fo long." "So long, 'l'ed. See you later." For the second time he stretched full length upon IT 9 his cot. only this time to dream-not to sleep. :X small voice deep down inside him whispered, "Letter to Nan." "1 Jh, well. that can wait until Monday --after all-," and Bob's mind drifted ott into dreams. Nine o'clock Saturday night had finally arrived. and all of Bob's friends were gathered around wishing him luck. llob strode out of his barracks looking very handsome in his dress uniform and feeling very proud. lle reached the home of the Colonel where Velma Ross was staying. lle rang the bell, and as he was admitted, Velma slowly came down the curved stairway. "Heel She's beautiful," was his first thought as he saw her. 'llhe Colonel in- troduced them and Bob was shocked to tind himself thinking. "XVhy. she must be almost thirty. Oh well, what's eight years ?" 'llheir entrance to the hop was cer- tainly spectacular. Bob felt that every eye in the room was turned toward them. He had the first dance with Velma, but after that it was a real achievement to take two steps with her without having the whole stag line on his neck. During one of these said achievements Velma said she would like some air, and they started for the terrace. "Velma! Velma Ross, what are you doing here ?" They turned around and with a squeal of delight Velma took the outstretched hands of the approaching officer. "XVhy, jim Shawel l didn't know you were sta- tioned here. 'llhe last I heard of you, you were stationed at-oh 3 Bob, you know Captain Shawe, don't you F" "Yes," Hob replied. Captain Shawe was one of the older othcers of the base. "Yes, I know l'rivate Carton." Shawe spoke up. "You see, Bob, Velma and I l went to school together. It sure would bc nice to talk over old times, wouldn't it, Yel "Uh, yes, -lim,--that is, if liob wouIdn't mind," Yelma turned to Hob questioningly. "XYent to school together," Rob thought. "Good Lord! She must be at least forty!" llc turned to Yelma. "Mind? Uf course not! You two go right ahead. lk-sides, l've got a very spe- cial letter that l'd like to write tonight."

Fortu- nately we have an excellent place to hold our dances, and not an opportunity is lost. l'ractieally every club sponsored at least one dance during the year and in addition many private club parties were held. lfriday night basketball games were always "topped off" with at least one hour's dancing. This year there were a few formals: the Sophomore class held one in December. and the Senior Prom was in February 'f"- -and, of course. the Graduation liall is coming up. During l,ent the auditorium was noticeably quiet on week-ends. but the crowd was right on hand after Easter. l'ractically any Stearns student is ready to argue at the drop of a hat that danc- ing is healthfulgand certainly it fur- nishes exercisel llance.

Coming to a hill of boulders, llead-Eye decided to make camp for the night and continue his search for XYarm Mattress in the morn- ing.

"Now listen. Marshal," said Dead-lfye. "XYhy not give me a fair and square chance?" 'lihe shadow said nothing, but just kept on coming forward, slowly but surely. lleail-Eye continued, "When l count three we'll both draw. and the one who's got the fastest draw will leave alonef' Still the shadow said nothing.

"Should I . . . or should I not?" 'llhat was the question liuteh kept ask- ing himself. "If I don't do it. someone else will find out about it and get around to it before I can. lt will be a very important mis- sion, and news of it will soon attract many. bolder and more courageous than l. Of course. courage and boldness aren't all it will take. I'll have to know how to go about it. liven after the pre- liminary details have been removed. it still requires an artist, who knows the game, to carry on and get the most out of it. What am l when it comes to that? lYhy. I don't even know how to plan it out. In the Iirst place, there's the time to think about. l'll have to plan it so there'll be no one around. tif course, I know the neighborhood quite well. and what time most of the people are coni- ing and going. 'l'hat will help some. "'l'hen there's the angle of attack to consider. lthieh door would be least conspieuous 'l'hough it wasn't a very big building, there were three possible entrances lluteh could consider. ttf the three, the side entrance. he thought, would be best. be- cause it is partly hidden by a big garage. "Xow. if I take the side entrance. I can go up over Chestnut Street hill. 'l'here's no houses there. because it's too steep," This wasn't the tirst time Iiuteh had thought of this: he had often come near getting up the courage many times, and had been in the neighborhood quite often for that reason. "Now," Ilutch continued. "there's a eluster of trees extending up to the rear of the garage. where I can stay and watch for the old man to leave. Getting in will be easy. but . . ., after that . "Uh, what's the use! I can never get up the nerve, anyhow, even after I get in. .Xnyw1ty. why should I risk it? l've got along okay so far without that. I guess I can manage a while longer. And besides. coineidenee. or something or other. has got me this far: maybe l'll get the chance without doing anything myself. Iiate gave me the information by getting me on the committee and letting me invite all the socialites. ll'hy should I take advantage of what's been done for me in good faith? If Fate got me this far, after all, I guess Fate can make the rest of the good fortune come my way." And so lfate did help Iluteh out. 'l'he rest of the committee, knowing Butch to be very shy and basltful, had already in- vited lflizabeth Yan tlotehac. who lived at the top of Chestnut hill, to go to the Senior I'rom with himl S'r.vx1.iiv Lvoxs '-13. ,, .. !4,,.,T.
