The theme of the Stephens Tribute selected by the Class of 1931 is the Town of
Rumford. The division pages picture some of its well known buildings, industries and
natural beauties. All quotations in the senior section are taken from poems written by
poets who at some time lived in Oxford County. Rumford, the largest town in Oxford
County, was founded in 1779. The Hrst settlers who came here from New Hampshire
called the place Rumford in honor of Count Rumford who owned many shares in the
township. Since then the town has grown until now the population is ten thousand
three hundred thirty-tive.
We sincerely hope that in years to come this book will help you to remember Rum-
ford as it is to-day and also the happy years spent at Stephens High School.

Rlummmm, ms: AND PRESENT
Before 1890, on the :ite where Rumford now :tand: there were only a very few hou:e:, not
over half a dozen at mo:t. Now Rumford, a to on of opportunity, :ub:tantial growth and enter-
pri:ing ambition i: one of the out:tanding communitie: of Maine. Rumford i: ideally located,
being acce::ible to :plendid water facilitie:, :urounded by :cenery of great beauty and directly
in the path of touri:t: and traveller: on their way to the White Mountain: or to the Rangeleyf
Lake:. Long before it began it: development indu:trially, Rumford wa: the principal route u:ed
by the:e traveller: to their vacation :pot:.
Indu:trially, Rumford i: an important community. Here the Andro:coggin River form: a
:teep fall:, furni:hing one of the large:t water power: in the United State:, ea:t2 of the Niagara
Fall:. The Rumford Fall: are far-famed, and he-re i: e:tabli:hed one of the late:t, large:t and!
mo:t powerful hydro-electric :tation: in New England. The potential power which here i: prac-
tically unlimited, make: thi: town one of real indu:trial importance. The fir:t important indux-
try to come to Rumford, wa: the International Paper Company, which :tarted it: paper depart-
ment here in 1892. The bag mill wa: e:tabli:hed here eight year: later and ha: :ince grown to
be one of the greate:t indu:trie: of the kind in the country. The Oxford Paper Company began
operation in 1901 and ha: today the large:t individaul mill producing book paper in the world.
The:e three indu:trie: are Rumford': large:t, but there are many other:, modern, progre::ive and
wide-awake, which are doing great work.
Rumford, a: the trading center of a large part of Oxford and Franklin countie:,'.1tt-raft: a
large buying public, and hence i: a town of thirving bu:ine::. U p-to-date :tore:, progre::ive bank-
ing in:titution:, excellent churche:, fine :chool:, all contribute their part toward the making of a
real town of which every citizen i: proud.
Rumford ha: won a ,place for it:elf a: a winter re:ort. lt: Annual Winter Carnival i: an
event which i: looked forward to by all New England. Since 1923 thi: event ha: been :tagerl by
the Chi:holm Ski Club of Rumford.
Rumford i: al:o fortunate in po::e:.:ing the Mechanic: In:titute, the Rotary Club, the Co:-
mo: Club, the Bu:ine:: and Profe::ional Men': A::ociation, the Bu:ine:: and Profe::ional W'omen':
Club, and a very attractive and modern Country Club, be:ide: other club: of different nature:...

'STEPHENS HIGH SCHHHL
The main part of Stephen: High School wa.r built in 1911 at a total coxt of 328,750.00. The
eight lotx upon which the fchool wax built were donated by the Rumford Power Company. The
building wax named after john E. Stephenx one of Rumford': moft prominent men. In 1915, the
.rchool wa: crowded, Jo the weft wing containing four new room.: wax added at a coyt of 319,500.
For more room, convenience and look: the eaft wing. In 1917 wax added at a coxt of 321,409.21
When fchool opened in 1911 Charlef Letter Smith war the principal, the total enrollment for the
jirft year wa: one hundred twenty-Jix.
Now a one hundred twenty-five thouxand dollar addition on the Penobxcot Street Jide of Step-
hen: High School ha.r been noted and agreed up on by the board of education and is awaiting cor-
rectionx at the Jpring seuion of Legi,flature,' the conctruction will be Jtarted ay .foon af the cor-
rection: are made.
The addition if to be one :tory higher and overlapping the prefent building. The jirxt floor
of the central .fection will be a completely equipped, Jtandard Jize gymnaxium fifty by eighty feet,
which will hold Jive hundred fifty people. There will be two entrancef to the gymnafium from
Penobxcot Street. Above the gymnafium i.r to be the aJ.rembly hall, with a .reating capacity of
.reven hundred people. There will be feven to ten clan roomf df needed. S
The new building will hold the junior High School which if compofed of the eighth and
ninth gradef, and the Senior High School, which ix made up of the tenth, eleventh and twelfth
The prefent high Jchool building haf proved very inconvenient for the pupilf. The lach of
a gymnafium hax made it neceffary for the girlx to hold their phyxical education clan in the bafe-
ment where the air if poor due to the nearneff of the chemistry and phyxicx laboratoriex. The bas'-
kethall Jquadx in order to train have to go over to the In.ftitute,' thi: makes it hard for both
boy! and coach. Our anembly room if hardly large enough to feat the Jtudent-body of the High
School comfortably, and whenever vifitorx come they have to Jil on folding chair: which are
none too comfortable or Jafe. ' . -
A new high Jchool would not only bring added beauty to the town, but would help .rtrengthen
the educational habitf of the pupilx.

ing, under the direction of the Student Council with Leslie White, '30, as general chairman.
This was a real country fair with attractions for all, especially did the youngsters enjoy patron-
izing its many and attractively decorated booths. One could buy a live cent lead pencilor a chick-
en, a stick of candy or a dainty embroidered buffet set. Captain Kidd's treasure den offered deli-
cious refreshments, and the sweetest of cider could be bought at the booth of the Future Farmers

This year we held our chapels on Monday instead of on Tuesday as was the custom for
many years. The chapel committee is composed of Geraldine Farrar, '30, chairman, Marjorie
Latham, '30, Robert Wishart, '31, Lois Andrews, '32 and William Rowe, '33,
During the year several pay chapels were held. The money made at these was used for
worth-while school activities.
On April 28th, Kenneth Frost, Emily and Pauline Frost, Muriel Morse, Mary Searles, Myra
Hawkes, Beatrice Butler .and Arthur Fletcher, from Dixfield High School, furnished the pro-
gram. At the same time Frederick Niles, Teresa MacDonald, Frances McKenzie and Annie Du-
gan, from Stephens High School, gave a chapel program at Dixfield.
The following people have helped to make our chapel programs a success: Helena Bren-
nick, Mrs Carl Watson, Dollard Brosseau, Mrs W. L. Smith, Mrs Nathan Israelson, Clarice
Small, Mabel Marshall, Bradford Andrews, Al Melanson, Dana York, William Leader, Supt.
L. E. Williams, Matthew McCarthy, Mrs Patti: Mann, Mrs Howard Maxson, Mrs Anderson,

This list is incomplete we fear, for all the names were not available when the 'book went to
press, but we thank the people, one and all who have entertained us.
There have been very few socials held at Stephens High School this year. Most of the so-
cials have not been so successful as they should have been, for there were other entertainments in
town which drew the crowds. The following organizations have held socials this year: Sopho-
more Class, Pine Tree Library Club, Senior Class, Junior Class, Latin Club and Dramatic Club.

Rumfoirtll Mechanics Institute
The Rumford Mechanics Institute founded by Hugh j. Chisholm was completed in October,
1911. It was built in order that the wage earners of Rumford might have a place for recreation
after working hours. When the building was dedicated in November, 1911, the hall and corri-
dors were crowded with people from all over Maine. h I
The Institute has many educational advantages as well as recreational ones. Many lectures
which are both interesting and instructive are given there during the year. The library is open
to all memisers, and here, there are encyclopedias as well as magazines and papers. The main
lounging room is an excellent place for high school students as well as older people to spend their
spare time. There is also the ladies' parlor adjoining 'the lounging room, where the ladies may
have card parties or merely sit and chat.
The gymnasium which is equipped with apparatus for all sports offers to the boys especially
all physical advantages. There is a gym instructor to take charge. The billiard room is also a
favorite place for the boys and men. The fine bowling. alleys are open to both men and women.
Contests and tournaments are held in the various sports to further the interest in them. Free
dances and suppers are given during the year, and entertainments are given for the pleasure of
the members. The Institute is also open to out of town guests for a period of time, on request.
The townspeople are under no obligation in financing the institution. Stores are rented on
the first floor, and on the third and fourth floors are twelve suites of three rooms each, which are
let to desirable young men. Each member pays dues for one year to be allowed the privileges
of the Institute.
It is truly a fine Institution and one of which the town may well be proud.
It offers many splendid opportunities to the people of the town, and it is steadily improving.
It is directed by a very efficient board of supervisors who are doing their utmost to make it the
sort of institution that it was first intended to be, a place of recreation and instruction for every-
MARY BARKER, so.

To be elected to the Student Council is on: of the greatest honors that can be bestowed on
a student. Membership in this council carries with it many responsibilities. The Student Council
consists of four members of the senior class, three members of the junior class, two members of
the sophomore class, and one member of the freshman class. At Stephens High School, the
Council is very successful and we are proud of it.
The Stephensville Fair was suggested and sponsored by the Council. Also it favors Al lorm

At the beginning of this school year the Student Council ruled that each club should be re-
quired to have a charter to be granted by the Council. Three clubs, the Commercial Club, the
Press Club, and the Mathematics Club failed to get these charters and so are no longer school
The Platonic Forum and the Ireland Dramatic Club have been combined and one new club,
The Future Farmers' Club, -has been organized, so now we have six clubs.
FUTURE FARMERS CLUB
' This club was formed during the second term of the school year and consists of eleven active
members and twelve associate members. Meetings are held once a week when reels of moving
pictures dealing with agricultural subjects are shown. Every other week a speaker who is inter-
ested in the club gives a talk for the benefit of the members.

S. P. Q. R. LATIN CLUB
Under the guidance of Miss Murphy the Latin Club has always been one of the best clubs
in school. In addition to fostering the study of Latin, this club is known throughout the school
for its service to others. It started this year with one hundred members. This year's meetings
started with a supper and dance at Rumford Centre, to which the faculty was invited. At the Step-
hensville Fair, held in December, the Latin Club Swan Boat was one of the most attractive booths
of the fair. The Club later sponsored a social which was very successful. In April the Club held
a moving picture show in the Study Hall, which was well attended. As the members of the sen-
ior class, are the charter members of the club, they were given a farewell party in the Municipal
Building on May 29th. The entire school was invited to this party which took the form of a Pop
Concert and added one more successful event to the history of the S. P. Q. R. Club.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
In 1924 Mr. Frank Carter, who was then principal of Stephens High School, organized
our National Honor Society. In order to be eligible for membership in this society a senior must
have a record showing high scholarship, ability as a leader, willingness to serve and a good char-
acter, only 1-8 per cent of a class may be selected. The emblem is the flaming torch and key-
stone at the base of which are the letters S. L. C. S., which stand for scholarship, leadership, char-
acter and service.
Membership in this society is one of the greatest honors that can be conferred on a senior.
From the Class of 1930 the 'faculty council elected the following students ,members of the Nation-
al Honor Society: Muriel Bessey, Ernest Canders, Greenwood Eaton, Geraldine Farrar, Irene Far-
rar, Frank Hanson, Rodney Macgregor, Alveniae Metivier and Ursula Weliska.

Although the orchestra, did not do so well in the Maine State Orchestra and Band Contest,
held in Lewiston last May, as it did the year before, it compares favorably with other orchestras.
The old system of classification in the state contest placed Rumford in a class with the largest and
best orchestras in the state, some of which were twice as large as our orchestra. This year the
new system of classification takes into account the number in the orchestra and the number of
years of experience each member has had. So it is expected that the Rumford musicians will do
far better in the State Contest to be held in Bangor this spring.
The orchestra plays at many school activities as well as for other gatherings. Franlt Hanson
was selected to play in the third All New England High School Orchestra Festival held in Boston
this spring. Mrs. Sweatt is director of the orchestra.

RUMFURDQS WINTER CARNWAL
The winter of 1924 marked the jir:t of the now farnou: "Annual Winter Carnival:." From
a very :mall beginning in 1924, when the Carnival con:5:ted of :kiing alone, thi: annual event
ha: grown to be the premier winter Jport: event in Maine. A
The art of :kiing wa: introduced in Rumford by Mr. Nat Nil:en. Intere:t in the :port in-
crea:ed rapidly, e:pecially among the younger people of Rumford. However, :oon the older peo-
ple became intere:ted and thu: the Chi:holm Ski Club wa: formed in 1924. Mr. Hinnie wa: the
hut pre:ident of the club and Mr. Arthur Landry wa: cho:en a: the !ir:t "Chairman of Winter
S port: and the Carnival."
The Fir:t Annual W' inter Carnival arou:ed very little intere:t. The next Carnival wa: bet-
The Carnival of the next year, 1926, wa: con:iderably more of a :ucce::. In :pite of the
hitter wind: of that winter, the crowd wa: much larger than tho:e ofthe previou: year:. A large
rink which greatly increared the member:hip of the Club, wa: built by the Club that year and
profe::ional :kater: were engaged for the Carnival.
The next Carnival in 1927 wa: a decided :ucce::. Thi: year, Mi:: Pen:iero wa: ch o : e n
Rumford': Snow Queen and wa: crowned by the Governor of the State in the "Ice Palace." The
be:t :kiir: in New England participated in thi: Carnival and e:tabli:hed :everal recordx. Be:ide:
the :kiing, :now:hoeing and hor:e-racing were added attraction: of thi: Carnival.
The Carnival had become an e:tabli:hed event by 1928. Thenthe United State: Amateur
Snow:hoe Union race: and the Inter:chola:tic Meet made the Carnival an event not to be mi::ed.
In 1929, the Ea:tern United State: Ski A::ociation Meet wa: held during our Carnival.
The leading :kiir: of America participated in thi: meet. The Inter:chola:tic Meet wa: al:o held
at the Carnival thi: year. '
In 1930, the Carnival far :urpa::ed any previou: Carnival ever held in Maine. Rumford
had become noted all over New England for it: wonderful Carnival:. A: a re:ult of thi:, there
were many out of town vi:itor:. The :ki jumping, :kating, Qhor:e-racing, lnter:chola.rtic Meet
and junior Event: all were e:pecially good thi: year. The :now:hoe race: under the direction of
the local Snow:hoe Club and participated in by Club: from all over the State, were the be:t ever
:een in Runzford. Thi: carnival wa: a :ucce:: from it: jir:t event, a concert by the Rumford
Community Orche:tra, to it: final event, the Snow Queen Ball, on the la:t night.

Back in the dayx of '85 where the power xtation ix now located wax a grixt mill, run by a
water-wheel which wax built for the purpoxe of grinding the grain for the farmerx in' thix xec-
tion. It ix amazing to note that then not a perxon dreamed of having a power plant located in
itx place in the near future.
It happened that Hugh Chixholm, while on a buxinexx trip, xaw induxtrial poxxibilitiex in
building a dam here. Mr. 1Valdo Pettingill who wax a friend of Mr. Chixholm agreed that the
community of Rumford would proxper if xuch a dam were built. The yirxt xtep that Mr. Pettingill
took wax to buy up all the land along the river and xome away from the river. He divided the
bznd into xectionx and xold it to the people who weregoing to make great uxe of the power. In
order to make uxe of power it wax necexxary to have a mill here xo Mr. Pettingill and Mr. Chix-
holm xucceeded in getting the International Paper Company to come to Rumford and build a mill,
where then a xmall axe handle factory wax run by a water-wheel.
A dam wax xtarted juxt ax xoon ax notice wax received from the paper company that they
would build a mill here. The height of thix dam, which wax located where the lower fallx ix,
wax fifty feet from the top to the bottom, with enough water to furnixh the mill. In 1900 an
electric plant wax built and at the xame time the Oxford Paper Company extablixhed a mill here.
About three yearx later the Paper Bag Mill wax aided to the International Company. Now the
people realized that they had to have a greater power plant. So in the year 1909 a wooden dam
wax conxtructed about yifty yardx away from the prexent dam,' the height of thix dam wax ninety-
xeven feet. It wax in the xame year that a generator wax put in the power xtation having five
thouxand horxepower and in 1910 another wax added.
But ax time went on there wax not an abundant enough xupply of water power and again
the people realized that another dam muxt be built, xo in the yearx of 1916-18, the new dam wax
built which xtill remainx. In the xame year two new generatorx were added to the electric plant,
each having a ten thouxand horxe power. Ten yearx paxxed and in 1926 a third generator wax in-
xtalled having a ten thouxand horxe power.
t 'In a period of about twenty yearx the water power of Rumford hax been greatly increaxed,
until today it ix the xecond in capacity and xize in the State, but it will be third juxt ax xoon ax the
power plant at Bingham ix completed. A
Rumford furnixhex not only itx own electricity, but alxo it furnixhex many near-by xmall townx
Think of the great part electricity hax played in the development of Rumford. All thix ix
due to the Power Company which ix backed by loyal xupporterx. Do you realize that if it had
not been for the Power Company Rumford would not be what ix ix today?
In prophecying for the future it ix xaid tha! the water power in Rumford will not increaxe
irzlexx water ix xtored in the lakex to be releaxed when needed.
