Most bomber tlights are condensed
into one newspaper article or editorial.
lint we feel that the bomber "Stearns
'-l-3" has made such an important flight
this year that a whole book can be
written about it. 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
'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
'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
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
'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.

llome room groups sponsor programs
of interest and benefit to their members.
Guest speakers, discussions, projects of
various kinds satisfy these interests.
'l'his year many projects were under-
taken for the benetit of service men-

Different vocational opportunities were

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
ligers from one
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-

The weary postman of
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-
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?

"Not that way. you bone-headed jelly-

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
"No talkin' in the ranks. you half-
witted fugitive from .Xlcatraz. Now let's

'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-
"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 Mooney was speechless.

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
"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
"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
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.
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-
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
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.

"Forceps" Quickly and silently the
nurse handed the instrument to the
"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

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,
"Good Let me see. Yes, you are
right. Give orders to rise."
Silent minutes passed as the sub sur-

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

might be important! Do ye want it
"No, thanks, Mr. Ross. just set it

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
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-
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
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 -
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
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-
'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

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

necessary industries was transformed
into a steaming, bustling mass of fac-
tories, shipyards, and dii'ty men and

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!

Miss Milton shifted her cramped post-
tion :tnd clutched her poeketbook tightly.
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-
"Kind of a tight pinch, lmh he in-
"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,
"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
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
The hus had stopped and the girl rose
to leave. lmpulsively. Miss Milton rose
also and touched her arm. "What is
your name, dear?"
"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
'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

"and the lovely curved staircase! Did

"XYell. I eontrihuted ideas, hut it was

go upstairs you'll Find the hath to the

.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
"Well," chuckled Miss Miltott. "you
certainly gave me a shock, but I daresay
I needed one."
"Yes. you did." admitted Celia, 'ibut
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-
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
"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.

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.

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.

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-

said before, it was disgusting.

She could have eloped. She could have

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

had gone and got herself lost. Oh, what's

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
'llhis day -lack was especially anxious
to see the Colonel. for he had wanted to
ask his advice on a problem that was
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
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
"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.
"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
"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.

'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
and Miss Levine. We owe a lot to them,

tion this year and proved to be a success.

"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
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

plex problems which arise as a part of

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

was going to hear the decision. It had
seemed quite easy to him and he was
sure he passed it all right.

he heard lXla's voice from the kitchen.

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-
"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,"
"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
"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
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
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
'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

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
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

jimmy lowered himself into the water
and felt down 'llOlll.S legs until he came
to cold steel. Satisfied. he shot up to the

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

f"llhe only way we can get him out is

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

started to run the engines. jinnny ex-
plained his plan to the other men.

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

"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
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
"You're okay. kid," he said, and
walked over to his engine.

The feminine erew on the Stearns '43

with the help of Miss Chandler evolved
some xery satisfactory results.
They worked hard making dresses
from the latter part of Septemlmer until
the tirst of the year. All work was done
during school hours.
For the benetit of their parents and
the faculty. the girls sponsored a fashion
show in the auditorium on -lanuary l2.
The stage was etifectively set with two
spotlights and a soft-colored haekgrouud.
As two girls walked slowly onto the stage
from opposite sides. low music was
played olifstage. They displayed their

The atmosphere was that of the show-

to show their work and at the same time

work that was heing done.
After the dresses were modeled, a tea

to XYaterville, but the Minutemen re-
fused. 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
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

Brooks. the only sub Bob Boynton. The
new coach. Mr. Friedl. will have to de-
pend a lot on the upcoming jayvees. Bur-

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

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.
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

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

"The Best Laid Plans-"
Corliss Iiartlett dropped to the small
stool beside the telephone. She was
speechless. 'l'o think that she, a senior
in high school. had been invited to one of

Later that afternoon Corliss. attired
in a blue sailor dress which made her
hair almost auburn, rang Mrs. Ashley's
"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,

"'l'here you are. my dear." An elderly
lady approached her. "l'm at my wits'

you could help in the kitchen? The
cook could tell you what to do."
"l might have known." thought Cor-

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

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.

she found herself explaining to him. but

of his mission for Mrs. Ashley.
Corliss watched him leave the kitchen.

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-

and tell him that he could ski better than
all of us and that he could do anything

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
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
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
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-
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
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
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."

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
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
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.
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
".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

Teachers and the War
The teachers who have gone into the
arnied services from Stearns might ap-
propriately he called our casualties. 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
'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.
"I lalt. who goes there?"
".'Xdvance and recite the second verse
of the 'Star Spangled liamier'!"
"1 don't know it."
1Yhat are you going to do after you
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
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
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-
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.

Cause for Divorce
The police had finally arrived to find
lilrs. Culpeper, third wife of Amos T.
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-
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
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
: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. The inspector, in spite

couldn't have been tired when she baked
those cookies and knit those socks: it
will only take a few minutes." His bet-

were gathered around wishing him luck.

Stearns students are notoriously fond
of dancing. Start the music in the audi-
torium any time of the day or night. and
a crowd appears as if by magic. 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. Stearns, dance.

lle felt as if some momentous act were
about to happen. .lim didn't know why
he felt this way. llere he was: pfc. jim
Rucker of the United States Signal
Corps, lying on top of a sand dune which
overlooked the peaceful-looking jagar
Oasis. The .-Xllies had taken over here
nearly a month ago and had pressed on
for nearly tifty miles, so there was no
immediate danger. -lim relaxed and
tried to feel calm, but nothing seemed
to relieve his tense nerves. llis job was
to be a lookout for the big -lunker
bomber which bombed the oasis every
other day. lt was just a token raid: the
plane usually had time to drop only one
or two missiles of destruction before
fleeing: but the camp had to be warned
-and they depended on .I im now.
-lim started. lYas his nerves betraying
him? It seemed as if he had been doz-
ing. lle glanced guiltily at his watch-
7:30. Good. he hadn't been sleeping at
all. In thirty minutes he would be re-
lieved: then he could really sleep. But
what was that? The noise was uninis-
takeahle-planes. There seemed to be
many. In the gathering dusk they were
hard to discern. Peering upwards. he
suddenly saw a Hash of white-'another
-and still another. Suddenly he real-
ized what was happening. The Germans
were attempting to land parachutists he-
hind the lines! .lim grasped his portable
telephone and contacted headquarters.
:Xfter giving the necessary iuforina-
tion. .I im looked up again. The sky now
seemed full of red. green. and white
parachutes. Some troopers had already
landed and were racing toward their
equipment. -lim was lightly arinedfhc
ever have suspected a raid like this? lle
emptied his gun at the nearest lleiuie
and had the satisfaction of seeing him
cruinple slowly to the earth: but as he
was reloading, 'lim felt a heavy blow on
the back of his head. lt was in reality
an explosive bullet tired from the rear.
.-Xll of a sudden, .lim felt light. lle was
going up . . . up , . . up . . .
The next day there was peace again at
'lagar Oasis. The invaders had been
iuopped up with few casualties. A
funeral was held, and an address was
given by the commanding olheer.
