When war came, troubled our peaceful habits, shattered our every dream, and moved us from our complacement, let-the-rest-of-the-world-go-by feeling, these lads did - I not hesitate. Bravely they answered the call to arms, and brave they were to the end, even in the face of death. Yes, they died that we might go on with those peaceful habits, dream those same dreams, live in that accustomed placid calmness. They died that we might go on living, loving, hoping, praying, learning, that we, our children, and our chi1dren's children might forever live as peace loving citizens of America. We are proud of the heroes, proud to call them our classmates. Let it be known that always they shall have the place of honor in our hearts, that all their toil, efforts, and superb sacrifice will not be wasted. To these, our classmates, and all others who, like them, have answered our country's call, we respectfully dedicate this edition. l i ' - -o f -A " 'MELQE " L N new P5 TRIBUTE STAFF lst row, left to right: J.

This year marks the close of four successful years of-well let us say-preparation as well as run. ' One of the biggest events,of the year was the senior social. The class decided to use a new and original idea suggested by our new class sponsor, Mr. Berrie. Results? Never before has the class undertaken a more successful or clever idea. The name selected for our dance was "Harvest Dance," and around this, plans were drawn up and preparations were begun. It was decided that a "Harvest Queen" and four attendants would be selected by popular vote of the senior class members. They were namely: Harvest Queen, Theresa Thibodeau, a well liked and successful member of the class. Her at- 'tendants were: Catherine MacFarlane, Elaine Wing, Louise Roderick and Lorraine Poulin. The refreshments consisted of cider, that the i"cider crew" eagerly made, and donuts solicited from the members of the class. Excellent music was provided by Ronnie?-Qhase and his orches- tra. More results? In ,our'.-estimation, the most successfuland profitable iiridegtaking ever cred- ited to our class. i " - I Many months later, half-yeaillaverages were given out and class'par'ts were decided upon. The year book washin full development and all preparations for 'graduation and'the Senior Hop were under way. Even then many of us did not realize that this was the- beginning- of the conclusion of four happy years as members of Stephens High. -L.

A DAY ON THE FARM Last November, the Sunday, before the Senior Harvest Dance, the members of the dance com- mittees went to Ernest Phillips' farm to pick apples and make cider to sell at the dance. , Robert Soucy loaded the "gang" on his truck at the school in the early afternoon. There was much singing and cheering as the truck went down Congress Street CS. H. S. had won the Armistice game, and many Mexico students were on the islandj. The truck stopped in front of Mr. Berrie's house in Virginia. "Yeah-Coach-Yeah-Berrien cheers from the gang brought him out. He was given a place to sit on the floor in the center of the truck, and was entertained with silly ditties all the way to the farm. Upon arriving at Phillips' farm, we learned that Mr. Phillips, Ernest, Elbridge Farwell, Robert Fleck and Cliff Wade had already begun to grind for cider. They needed more apples, so part of the "gang" returned in Soucy's truck and part in Fleck's homemade "jeep" fpictured aboveb, to the apple orchard. Anyone who rode with Fleck can tell you that they have experienced a real jeep ride, because his contraption is capable of climbing steep hills like a caterpillar, reacts to bumps in a similar manner, and can even Jump mud puddles. Several baskets and burlap bags were filled with apples and taken to the barn. - Later in the afternoon, another group of boys came up in Bill Leader's car, making the "gang" approximately twenty-five strong. Everyone pitched in, each taking turns at different jobs. Two girls were required to polish the apples and to throw them into the press, one boy to push them down with a stick, and two boys to grind them and to throw out the pulp. When a pan was filled with juice, a boy and a girl were needed to strain it twice and to pour it into the barrels. At the same time others were picking more apples, or eating them, while still others managed to pass the time by dancing in the barn. Of course we cou1dn't go without mentioning the haystack upstairs in the barn, which also fur- nished entertainment! Two couples were very quiet and unconcerned while "Mac" McLean and "Scotty" Batherson practiced Ju-Jitsu in the hay. Mr. Berrie, as sponsor and chaperon, made repeated trips upstairs, as much as he hated to do soQ??'?7 Late in the afternoon, the "gang" had an opportunity to sample the fruits of their toil as well as some of Mrs. Phillips' delicious, hot, homemade sugared doughnuts. Then everyone went home feeling tired, but happy. Of course a few members were covered from head to foot with hay that simply wouldn't brush off. You can imagine how plainly it showed up on Ella Gotto's black coatls In spite of the enjoyable time had by everyone, much work was accomplished. The boys contin- ued nights after school to make more cider, bringing the total to forty gallons. This proved delicious and brought in a good profit for the Senior Class. -IRENE HARPE, '45.

Even-ybody's sister-that's Barhs. Helpful-but argumentative: humorous-but stubborn, wonderful singing and speaking voice-all in one girl. She plans on being a nurse and with that helpful attitude and conversational ability I'm sure she will be a success. I can see her now walking down the hospital corridor with a hint of jive in her step. meeting a young intern, and whispering in his ear "Le's Dance!" ALEC AGOSTINELLI The fellow who was always getting himself in hot water doing things that only he could think of! With that wolfish grin and that teasing manner of his no one could help but like him. He was active in school activities, and always managed to get elected to at least one office in every club he joined. No matter what he does he's sure to be a success. RACHEL AUSTIN "Ray" has always been known to be an honest and conscientious student. She possessed a winning smile and was pleasing to all her classmates. Her sense of humor won her many friends, in and out of school. LORRAINE T. BAKER Just this year Lorraine came to join our class. She's a true "Jersey girl" with her quiet way. Beneath her quietness we've learned that there's a mischievous way. You're a fine girl and grand company, "Rusty." Be yourself always and you'll be happy. ANNIE BARNETT To have her around makes every one happy. Her smile is so bright and her personality pleasing. She is always ready to help a friend in need, and she is a friend indeed. We know she will have success in her future work. H BARBARA M. BARTLETT K Whatever impression she may give. I think you'll find her talkative. The flashing brightness of the eye, '- Shows that nothing's getting by. STELLA PATRICIA BATHERSON Stella could very well be classified as an all around girl. She has participated in many sports and extra- curricular activities. Always ready to give anyone a helping hand. This together with her pleasing person- ality will do much toward the successful career she rightfully deserves. 1 LORRAINE BELANGER We will always remember Lorraine for her pleas- ing personality. She's a small girl but she has big ideas. We know she will succeed in her future life. ADELIA BESSEY A gay and friendly girl is she. Always has a silly giggle, and is noted for the gleam in her eye and her eye on the men. She always got what she wanted. and may she always get what she will need in the future-Luck. K PAGE EIGHTEEN JOYCE BUOTTE "I'm not fooling" Joyce is a little ray of sunshine that will never be dimmed. The phrase "Small but Mighty" was composed for only her. She is clever but is not too clever to be loved, and her zest and character serve as an inspiration to others. As for "Love's young dream," "Runt" is just "Bugs" about a certain little sailor. RAYMOND PAUL CARIGNAN A Another one of those boys who left a trail of broken hearts! If there were more real "regular fel- las" like "Moots," life would be a lot more fun! He was also quite smooth on a dance floor and possessed an infectious smile and good personality. We're all .sure he'l1 be a great success in the Navy Air Corps! DANIEL H. CASEY Dan is the big. strong silent type! He doesn't say too much but has the best developed "line" in the class. Seriously, though, he is the reliable, friendly and good natured sort of guy. Popular with both tflelllfmwinanti girls! The type that anyone could like- a 's an. LEITH CALDEN Clap hands for here comes Leith, the dr? land sailor boy from West Peru. The lad is one o those individuals with a winning smile and a sense of humor in a happy combination. To see him is to be one of his host of friends. We shall miss Lee but our loss is a certain party's gain and we wish him loads of luck in his chosen profession. CECILE CANTIN "Ce's" is a rather quiet but friendly girl. She has many friends in school and is always ready to lend a helping hand. She writes a lot of letters-especially to that certain soldier. We know, she will be suc- cessful in whatever she attempts. We hope she is especially successful in Washington. PHYLLIS CHAMBERS Phyllis is a swell gi.r1. No matter what is wrong, she always has a merry twinkle in those sparkling brown eyes of hers. Besides her famous twinkling eyes, one may find her always with a ready smile. Another trait of hers is blushing. Keep it up "Phyl" for it adds to your sparkle and charm. MARY CLOUTIER The girl with the beautiful blue eyes who is quiet in ways but equally gay, likes.a good time, and is always ready to laugh. Just another one of those telephone operators, but this doesn't mean "mum chums" as Mary's not that type. Here's one girl who will be a success due to her pleasing personality and friendliness. BASIL CORNISH His silent manner and friendly smile make him an enjoyable companion, well liked by all his classmates. We think you deserve the very best life has to offer. so here's luck to you. Basil. LEON DAVIS "Sonny" will always be remembered for his eagerness to help other students, for his wit and laughter, and for his ability to make friends. May your life in Uncle Sam's big family be as successful, because the class is rooting for you Sonny. l it e A i 'if . 1-ei fi' G .. 1 ff.

A good sportsman, with a good disposition, and 'well liked by all his class- mates. He has chrsen Engineering for a career. We all hope he makes it. You're O. K. Bob. WILFRED FRANCIS DROUIN A quiet lad who did his work conscientiously. He had a smile for every occasion, and a pleasing person- ality. We know he will be successful in the years to come. TERESA DUCASSE The girl who has been going around with stars in her eyes all year! She's the one who always could make a joke out of anything and who was always willing to have a good time. As for her ambition, I think she is most serious about being a housewife. Here's hoping she'll be very happy. JOHN DUMAS Johnny who joined our class this year was a wel- comed addition to it. A very clever and courteous fellow, whose ambition is to be a doctor. He has wavy hair and that come hither look in his smile that would bewitch any maid. HENRY WILLIAM DUPILL "Dupe" is an all-round fellow and good companion. We have only begun to know him as he truly is, for up to this year he was so quiet and reserved. We are all glad of this change, for we find him full of fun. RONALD F. EIVIERY Ronald is one of those quiet fellows that always is busy at work, but finds time to joke with his class- mates. We all believe that he is versatile and know he will succeed in anything he tries. VADA EVELYN ENMAN "Squink" is very friendly and very nice to get along with. She is very helpful. She gets teased a lot in 108, but takes it with a smile. She writes many letters to a certain soldier in Germany. I Wonder what she puts in them. We all know and feel she will be a great success in what field she enters. We all hope she makes a success at Washington, D. C. CAROLYN FAULKINGHAM This person's resourcefulness and dependable characteristics make her a true friend and an excel- lent scholar. Because of her studious qualities she is destined to achieve her goal in life. JEANNE FISHER Jeanneiis a very quiet girl while in school. How- ever. when out of school, she is exactly the opposite. She, like other girls of the Senior Class, likes to go out with a group of girls and have a good time. MARGUERITE A. FISHER "Marg" is a versatile girl who is, strange as it seems, mischievous in school and rather quiet out- srde. In spite of this, she is fun to be with at all times, fcr she is a good sport and companion. ROBERT HUGH FLECK ' On the surface "Bob" is a quiet fellow but not to those who really know him. I'm sure he'll be a suc- cess in whatever he undertakes for he is wise. Good luck and lots of happiness for the future. EVELYN - F. FLOYD Evelyn is a quiet person. She is always busy at her school work and never has an idle moment. She is friendly to all and always ready to help a class- mate. Hereis wishing her good luck in her career. PHOEBE MARGARET FRASER "Mornings at seven--all's right with the world" and all's right with Phoebe, too. Her smile is as bright at seven o'clock in the morning as it is at eleven o'clock at night. We shall miss your good- natured, easy-going personality. We wish you the best the world has to offer. ' DORIS GALLANT ' We will always remember Doris for the friendly smile and laughter she had for everyone. Although her interests were chiefly about Mexico, we know she had time to concentrate on her most loved 'subjects ot shorthand and typewriting. I-Ier melodious voice of "Number Please" kept us on the alert for secretive conversation. GLORIA ANN GALLANT Gloria is a classmate who is willing to lend a help- ing hand to anyone. She is always smiling no matter how glocmy the outlook is. May good fortune be with her in her future career. MARY ANITA GALLANT Whenever you hear a long, shrill wolf call you can usually find Anita at the end of it! One of the most active girls in the class, she is a good leader with her fine speaking voice and her remarkable sense of humor. She now works in a corner drug store as a step to realizing her ambition of being a pharm- acist. With a sparkling personality like that she will certainly be a big success. . BARBARA GARRIGAN Barbara is conscientious and quiet. She is very willing to help her neighbors with their work. She looks upon the world with understanding and a smi e.

She is a good sport in basketball, softball, and in other sports. She has a grand soldier to whom she writes regularly. He sends her pins and kerchiefs. Why don't you ask her to show them to you.

PA GE TWENTY PHYLLIS HUSSEY During our four years at Stephens High School, Phyllis was not heard from very often. thus many of her classmates do not know her true character and personality. She is very loyal to her close friends and always has a good word for everyone with whom she is associated. She has hilgih ideals and strives constantly to maintain them. owever. her greatest assets are her smile and sense of humor. With all these admirable traits, Phyllis is destined to become successful in anything she attempts to undertake. HERMAN JONES , He is a boy of fine character.

Hiking into the woods is one of his great pastimes. JAMES B. KELLY ' A cheerful and happy-go-lucky lad. Many a day was heightened by his Irish smile. The only thing that he lacked was leisure time, for he was always busy. Jim was one of our best athletes, particularly in basketball. MARIE LANDRY The happy-go-lucky type, that's what "Bubbles"' is.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council of Stephens High School met for the first time during the second week of school, at which time the officers for the coming year were elected. They were as follows: President Irene Harpe Vice-President Beverly Bronstein Secretary Jack MacDonald Treasurer Viola Theriault It was voted that Royal Attractions be held during the coming year. In addition to this a football banquet was planned in recognition of the splendid work our boys had done. This was held at the close of the football season, with members of of the football team, Home Economics Club, and Student Council attending. The supper was highlighted by the main course which was chicken. Mr. Ryder announced that all who deserved them would receive red letters this year instead of white. Other speeches were given by Mr. Peakes and Mr. Hunt and toasts were made by members of the football team. Afterwards games were played and an enjoyable time was had by all. To the good fortune of all present, a Rotary Club program, featuring the Ostas was being held in the Auditorium that night and all who wished to attend were admitted free of charge. Following this event, most of the Council's time was spent planning for our Teen-Town. It was suggested that an article be put into the paper explaining the situation to the townspeople. The result was gratifying as the opinions of the older people were secured in so doing. A committee consisting of one person from each class and the president of the Student Council was appointed by the Council and they have indeed obtained fine results. With their help, the students have secured the backing of the Rotary Club and various other organizations. Besides these functions mentioned, questions have been settled by the Student Council. May it continue to carry on its line work! -B. BRONSTEIN, '45 PAGE TWENTY-THREE ju, ie 41" '-9' . ,. . f' .i - -.Fr . L , r Pierce- .. ' fife-1-iii I LATIN CLUB , ' ' lst row, left to right: E.

Newly reorganized, the club had, as the attraction at its first meeting, the initiation of the sophomore members. Two weeks later, those worthy members avenged themselves when they initiated the officers, both juniors and seniors. . The officers, previously elected from the upper classes, are the following: Robert Roche, emperor, Ruth Ahara, empressg Shirley Thorne, scribe secretaryg Diantha Taylor, scribe treasurer. Since there are no dues, money had to be raised. The fall auction of books, food, candy, and miscellaneous goods showed the enthusiasm and generosity of both members and parents. The club was amply rewarded for the time and effort spent as a profit of sixty dollars was realized. Interest at the auction centered around the chicken donated by Scribe Taylor, for which apples and a lucky number were sold. Miss Cormier received the lucky number in the first drawing, but graciously returned the bird. Mrs. Frank Ross took home, not the bacon, but the poultry. The Scholastic and Latin Clubs combined to sponsor a valentine social on February ninth. This also was a financial success, a total of forty-one dollars 'going to the Latin Club and twenty-three dollars to the sister club. The gym was attractively decorated with hearts and cupids, while valentines were distributed during the Grand March. With the treasury thus bulging, the members felt that the time had come to spend some of that money. The result was the Saint Patrick's Day party which was held in the cafeteria, kitchen, and gym. The tables were attractively decorated in green and white. Since the ladies kindly agreed to cook the delicious supper, the members consented to wash the dishes. Afterwards, a program consisting of a little truth and a lot of consequences was held. A pleasant evening ended when the janitor announced "Lights Out!'l Plans for our spring banquet and annual May Day breakfast at the Ledge are in the making as this is being written. Social activities are not our only concern. The club has voted to join the Junior Classical League which furthers interest and information in cultural subjects. We believe that ours is the first Chapter organized in the State of Maine and in this we take pride. If this year is any indication of what the future of the Latin Club will hold, we honestly believe the club has been reorganized with great success.

' SCHOLASTIC CLUB The need of a club Where current events could be discussed informally caused the seniors of the Social Problems class to form a new club this year. The name "Scholastic" was chosen from the magazine "Scholastic" which is the basis of classroom work. The purpose of the club is to discuss up-to-date topics for which there is too little time during class period. The programs have proved that the club is Worth .while among our Varied extra curricular activities. During the year meetings have been held every Wednesday. Current topics, debates, discussions, educational games and talks by guest speakers have been both entertaining and instructive. The social side has not been neglected. A Christmas party was held in Room 113 which was planned entirely by the members of the club. A Valentine Social was sponsored jointly with the Latin Club when about sixty-dollars was realized. The Spring activities included a sunrise service and breakfast at the open fireplace on the Giguere Farm on the Isthmus Road. The closing event of a successful season was the banquet held during Commencement week. I The club is grateful to Rev. Hazel Kirk of the Universalist Church, Mrs. Lettie Huston and Miss Lucia Cormier of the faculty and Dr. E. A. Sheehy for their enlightening talks. , The oHicers are: President, Mary Anita Gallantg Vice President, Tom Ronang Secretary, Barbara Adleyg Treasurer, Theresa Taylorg Sponsor, Miss Julia Murphy.

This course covers cataloging, classification, charging and discharging of books, reference work, etc. Candidates receiving the highest rank are chosen for school librarians. These students work one period a day in the library and attend a weekly meeting at which library problems are discussed. For this service they receive two Academic credits each year, and the completion of two years they earn a white "R" outlined upon a book design.

BAND Although the Stephens High School Band has lost many members recently due to war conditions it has not suffered in regard to quality. At the beginning of the school year the band was immediately called together to play for assemblies and football games. A little later in the year it played for the Four-H club which was held in the Municipal Building. Armistice Day the band marched and played for memorial services at the Greens. During the activity periods, the band practices very conscientiously. During the Easter Season Mr. Harry Cohen, our leader, became ill and the band played Easter Sunday under the capable direction of Mr. Peter Beeaker. Since the absence of Mr. Cohen there have been no band practices, but we are looking forward to even more successful year next fall. New members will be needed as we will lose some members through graduation. One of the Band's former members, P. F. C. Norman Roy, who left school to join the Marines, was killed in action on Iwo Jima. - Next year, Mr. Cohen plans to bring to the band many new members whom he has been instructing this year.

They were Muriel Patenaude, Phyllis Chambers, Theresa Theriault, Irene Beaudet and Julia Perry. A spaghetti supper preceded the initiation. ' During the basketball games this winter the Club sold refreshments and earned money for a trip to Boston in April to witness an American League baseball game. A second initiation was held late in April to welcome the Junior girls who were the '45 champs in basketball. Those initiated were Jean Thomas, Shirley Thorne, Viola Theriault, Sally Rowe, Barbara Stewart, Anita Carrier, Pauline Martin, Frances Martin, Jean Gammon, June Pretty and Claire Steele.

COMMERCIAL CLUB The Commercial Club, with Mr. Baum as sponsor, started the school year with thirteen Senior members who had been initiated last year. The 1944-45 officers, chosen by last year's Senior members were President Irene Harpe Vice-President Phoebe Fraser Secretary Doris Gallant . Treasurer Adele Ploplis Plans were immediately started to initiate the rest of the Senior members of the commercial class. Initiation was held in October and was followed by a snack of cider and doughnuts. The initiates were Gloria Gallant, Thelma Trenoweth, Cecile Cantin, B. Morrison, Irene Theriault, Theresa Theriault, Vivian Tremblay, Margaret Fisher. Robere Lantagne, and Alfred St. Cyr. A Christmas party was held the week before Christmas vacation. The Junior commercial students who were to become members had been chosen according to the club qualifications but had not been initiated. They and Mr. and Mrs. Hunt were guests at the Christmas party. A chicken dinner with all the fixin's was served in the school cafeteria. Names had been drawn previous to the party, so each member received a gift from the gaily-decorated tree. Mr. Hunt was a good sport and took the part of Santa Claus in distributing the gifts. This was followed by group singing, forfeit stunts and "A Bit of Nonsense," read by Mr. Baum. The club is proud to have one of -its Senior members in the service of our country. Alfred St. Cyr left in January to enter the Navy and is carrying on with his commercial work as a yeoman. The averages in commercial studies were so close that seventeen Juniors qualified as members. They were initiated in February and proved to be good sports. Those initiated were Joyce Spencer, Barbar McKellick, Joyce Dolloif, Joan Annello Isabelle Garneau, Eva Cormier, Pearl Martin, Viola Theriault, Betty Constantine, Shirley Fitzmaurice Genevieve Dalton, Muriel Cummings, Rose DeSalle, Claire Goudreau, Ida Mae Lefebvre Frances Serafin, and William Ball. The initation was followed by a'social gathering and lunch in the cafeteria. Mrs Trafton helped with initiation. Mr. Trafton and Mr. Berrie arrived just in time for lunch and proved very enjoyable with their views on women. The Commercial Club activities will be closed this year by an outdoor meeting and the elec- tion of the 1945-46 officers. PAGE THIRTY-TWO ' BOYS "R" CLUB I ' lst row, left to right: A. Melanson, H.

They sponsored the first social of the year which was a tremendous success financially and socially. The social took the form of a Canteen. While a nickeodeon fur- nished music for dancing in the gymnasium, pool, badminton and ping-pong were enjoyed in the cafeteria. One of the features of the eve- ning was a floor show which was enthusiastic- ally received. Committees were chosen to plan a gala Junior Prom but after canvassing the upper classes to determine how many boys Uncle Sam had not yet summoned, the idea was dropped. Too few were available to make such an enterprise worth while. They are, however, looking for- ward to an unusual Senior Hop in 1946! . In athletics the Juniors were outstanding. On the gridiron we single out such stars as J. Dupill, C. Chenard, P. Richardson, J. Meehan, J. Gelinski, P. Theriault, D. Gacetta, R. Simboli, T. Burgess and M. Aylward. On the basketball court the Junior Class was equally well represented by W. Paterson, C. Chenard, and J. Phillips. The Girls Interscho- lastic Tournament was won by the fast, well- passing and alert Junior girls' team. The next event sponsored by the Junior Class was the traditional Prize Speaking Contest held in April. A fine class spirit was exemplified when boys as well as girls turned out for the try-outs. The speakers were as follows: Jean Thomas, Ruth Ahara, Elinore Hinckley, Muriel Cummings, Priscilla Marceau, Manley Irish, John Phillips, Richard Works, James Meehan, Donald Gillis. - Many boys from the Class of '46 are missing from the class roll. They have answered their country's call and are either on the battle field or in training. Many more will answer this same call unless conditions change. Depleted ranks Miss Lucia Cormier Jean Thomas Claire Goudreau Betty Constantine Pearl Martin are a testimonial to the spirit of self sacrifice. May we, the remaining members of the Class of '46 be worthy of our classmates who have shown this spirit.

SOPHOMORE CLASS ACTION Sponsor Mr. James Connors President William McCarthy Vice-President Thomas Marchi A Secretary' Gloria Parady Treasurer Janice Ruff After an inauspicious beginning the Sopho- mores eventually got underway and are now sailing smoothly along towards a bright future. Four meetings have been heldg the first to elect a new sponsor. Here after much difficulty, three teachers were selected and a vote cast. Mrs. Halliday was elected, but war conditions changed matters and she left to join her hus- band, who is in the U. S. Airforce. However those same war conditions brought us Mr. Con- nors, an ex-Naval Officer, who joined the fac- ulty as an English teacher. He was soon elected to be our sponsor and guide us in what Destiny held for us. At the third meeting a date was selected for the Sophomore Dance. This was set for Wednes- dy, April 18th, the eve of Patriots' Day. Because we believed this to be the last school dance of the year, we decided to have an orchestra. Practically everyone agreed on Ronnie Chaseis orchestra which was well known and very pop- ular. The Sophomores know that this will be one of the standout socials of the year. Many plans were made at our fourth meeting and preparations are now underway to make it just that. Athletically the Sophomores have contrib- uted no small part. Besides being well repre- sented on all varsity teams, the boys have won the Interclass Basketball Tournament. They de- feated the Freshmen 36-22, the Juniors 43-30 and the Seniors 39-38. All games were well played and showed a great deal of promising material in the class. The players for the Soph- omores were Richard Shea, Vincent Morrison, Stanley Kaubris, John Freeman, Ray Theriault, Joseph DeSalle, Thomas Dyer, Don Curley and James Crawford. Most of these boys repre- sented the Sophomore class in Football, Basket- ball, Baseball and Track. Others worthy of mention are Ted Clark who accounted for him- self very well on the-Varsity Basketball Team, and Melanson, Gallant, McCleary, who did very well in Football. - The Sophomores are a fine group of school- spirited students who will undoubtedly be heard from favorably in the future. After a 10072, collection of dues during Freshman year they are well on the way to reaching the same goal again. With this spirit and willingness for work 'there is no question about their outcome as a class for their Junior and Senior years. We wish to thank Mr. Connors for the splendid coopera- tion and help he has given us this year. -W.

After the ballots had been counted, we found that our officers were Robert Saisi, presidentg Einor Wulff, vice-presidentg Betty Smith, secre- tary, Nancy Schwind, treasurer, and Shirley Gauthier, representative to the Student Coun- cil. Mrs. Taylor was chosen for a sponsor. As far as athletics were concerned, our great- est showing was in basketball. However, two boys, Tim Perry and Roger Petrie, went out for football. When basketball season rolled around, there were about fifteen boys who played, some of whom showed great promise. J Approximately twenty girls reported for basketball. After many practices with Miss Cormier, our coach, we were ready for the tour- nament. We played the sophomores, but met with defeat. ' We all agreed that it was a good game and are anxiously awaiting next year so we can try again. Our social was held on January twelfth. The theme of our decorations was the United Nations and the gym was decorated with flags of many Allied countries. The heads of the committee were Shirley Gauthier, decorations, Joan Lundy, ticketsg Cynthia Letteney, refreshmentsg and Jack Pretty, nickelodeon. The social started out with the Grand March, as usual. In spite of the fact that two tubes in the nickelodeon burned out, the social was a success and the profits were large. -B.

' The first game of the season Was a non- scheduled game with Gardiner High, Class B Champions, after only two weeks' practice. Although we lost by a score of 13-6, the Garnet already was showing signs of becoming a power- ful team. , Following the Gardiner game the Garnet and White journeyed to' Lewiston and for the first time in several years we proved superior to the "Devils" as We beat them on their own field by a 14-6 score. Waterville High was next on the Panther schedule and after forty-eight minutes of hard playing the score was deadlocked at 6-6. We proved to be the only team in the state that was a match for the Elm City eleven as they went on to win the State championship. Berlin was then invaded by the high-liying Panthers and on a very Wet and muddy day the Garnet came through as winner once again by a 12-0 score. The next week-end saw the eleven head by car and by train to Bangor to play the "Rams', on another very wet and dreary day. The fourth Saturday in a row the team played excel- lent football and downed Bangor 13-7. On Friday night following the Bangor- Rumford tilt the Garnet and White iourneyed to Auburn to play the Red Eddies in what proved to be one of the top games of the year. Although playing under the arcs was something new for the team they did superbly well in holding the fieet "Eddies'-' to twelve points. Final score was Edward Little 12, Rumford 7. The next two games were played at Hosmer Field. The first was with the Wilton Eagles which we won easily by a 26-12 score. The sec- ond and last game of the 1944 season was with Mexico which we won from the scrappy Pintos by a score of 14-0. The team turned in grand performance this past year, due to the excellent coaching of Mr. Ryder. This was Mr. Ryder's first year at Stephens High, but we surely hope not the last as he has taken the first steps in putting Steph- ens High back on its feet where it belongs. After several years of just mediocre teams the Garnet and White of SHS are now back-in the running for future State honors. -William Leader, '45 LETTERMEN Dennis, Dupill, Normando, MacDonald, Richard- son.

It was the type of team that played exceptionally well one week but the next week they would seemingly collapse. The team this year was headed by high- scoring Bob Dennis, who in many games scored as many as 25 or 30 points. This was Dennis' last year and he left a sizeable scoring record, one which future centers of Stephens may find difficult to surpass. Dennis was ably assisted n the front court by James Kelly and Clarence Chenard, the latter of whom after the last game entered the Coast Guard. Chenard, who was shifted to forward after playing guard last year, proved himself a very good floor man as well as a sharpshooter. The backcourt, which is the only part of the team returning next year, was young and inex- perienced at first, but towards the end of the season showed veteran form. Ted Clark and Bill Paterson made up the backcourt. Clark, only a Sophomore, played a great floor game all year and towards the end' of the year contributed his share of points. Patterson, playing his first full year of high school basketball, broke into the starting lineup shortly after the season had PAGE FORTY-TWO begun. Patterson, although doing little scoring, was a splendid guard and team player. He and Clark at guards made a strong defensive com- bination, which will be the basis of next year's team. We wish them and their associates the best of luck. . The starting five had as replacements such competent players as Gilmour, Leader, MacDon- ald, Manson, Kaubris, Shea, Phillips and Theri- ault. Of these, the ones to see the most action were Leader, MacDonald and Manson, all three of whom are seniors. Leader and MacDonald combined at forwards and were two "dead- eyes" on their favorite shots, which were taken from the side just over the mid-floor line. Two better forwards could not have been found to replace the starters. They were not only good individually but they worked together perfectly. Manson subbed at guard and occasionally at center and did a creditable job. The other replacements were mostly underclassmen and, of course will be heard from again next year. May they have a successful season. We also would like to express our apprecation to Coach Berry for all he has done for us this year. A -JIM KELLY, '45. 2b-5 - i.. I4 XXL!

GIRLS' BASKETBALL The girls of Stephens have had a very suc- cessful 'season in basketball. Although they do not play interscholastic games, much enthusiasm was aroused at the interclass games.
