We were now ready for our last year in Stephens High. On 'November 2nd the remaining five commercial seniors were initiated and what an ordeal for them! All during the day Faye MCKSUUH, Edna Mahar, Hazel Prevost, Mildred Blouin and Jeanette Vallee were so stunning in their upsweeps, and large red bows, large C's on their cheeks, books in pails, dark skirts, and red sweaters! No jewelry or makeup was allowed and to top it off, one short sock and one long silk stocking. In the evening, however, this garb was discarded and an enjoyable evening was had by all. Mrs Trafton, guest of honor, who was soon to leave us, was presented with gifts and our best wishes. On January 9, a banquet was held in the cafeteria, in honor of the incoming Juniors. There were eleven new members admitted to the club. Miss Lombard and Mr. Brennick were guests. Games and songs were enjoyed by all. ' On March 6th, the eleven highest ranking Juniors were initiated. For about one week here and there people were solicited for their John Hancocks to be signed on raw eggs, a custom of the club. Then came the day of initiation. They wore dungarees, pajama tops, one high boot and one moccasin, a stunning hair-do Cpin curlsj, no make up, and rings on all fingers. That night they went through the usual initiating procedure and became full-fledged members. A light luncheon was served. Irene Harpe and Irene Theriault, former Commercial Club members, were guests of honor. The officers are as follows: President ....., ...,.....

Miss Lucia Cormier, who for many years had served as our popular sponsor, resigned her post as teacher in S.H.S. Mr. Helie was selected as her successor and also the new sponsor of the club. To raise money for numerous activities, a fine social was held on May 3rd, in the Gymnasium. Music was furnished by Zenas Patrick and everyone voted it "the best social of the year." The officers who were elected for this year were: President, Pascal Richardsong Vice President, Gloria Paradyg Secretary, Vincent Morrisong Treasurer, John Dupill.

F.F.A The Stephens High F. F. A. started its activities in the fall by initiating its new members. During the evening refreshments were served. The other activities for the school year consisted of holding meetings one evening each month. In March, two of the officers attended a meeting of all fourteen F. F. A. Associations in this district at Monmouth Academy. This was an all-day meeting, and a good time was reported. In May, our chapter went to Livermore Falls to compete in an Agricultural Contest consisting of fifteen schools. After school closes in June, our F. F. A. Chapter will be represented at Orono at the State F. F. A. Convention. At this time a state-wide contest will be held also. .A team of four boys will be chosen to take part in this contest.

Eva Laurinaitis I By-laws were read and approved by members, of the club. Josephine Blunda and Ethelyne Broomhall were elected By-law members. ' The duties of the officers were read and approved. Colors of the Club were agreed upon, lavendar and white. Making of uniforms was discussed by the Club members. Lavendar skirts and white sweaters were made by the Senior Home Economics members. They were worn at the next meeting, and were very attractive. A Christmas party was held in the cafeteria, with an exchange of gifts, and the singing of carols. Many new ideas and suggestions were brought out to improve the club. It was also suggested and approved by the members to have club pins. The pins were to be worn by all Senior and Junior girls, provided they earned them. The Sophomore and Freshman girls were to wear ribbons of the club colors after one year in the club. W Under the supervision of Mrs. Fuller and Mrs. Barlow, much was accomplished. Next year, it ,is hoped that there will be more members enthusiastic about the club.

Latin Club held the first meeting of the year. The gathering took place in the form of a Hal1owe'en party at the farm of Carol White's parents. The Seniors and Juniors were in charge of the evening's entertainment, the main attraction being the initiation of the Sophomore members. This took place in a room attractively decorated in orange and black. Mr. White was the "Ghost," and several gruesome figures had been placed in the halls where they startled the unsuspecting members. After a picnic supper and the initiation program, jokes and stories were exchanged before the clock showed it was time to start for home. Two weeks later the Sophomores, in return, prepared a chicken supper and an evening's enter- tainment for the Juniors and Seniors. Various contests were held, and pins showing membership in the Junior Classical League were presented to the third and fourth year students. The next event was the annual auction. The aim for this year was sixty dollars and each class had its own project. The Sophomores earned their quota with a chicken generously donated by Mrs. Christine Taylor. An attractive variety box, prepared by Louise Press was auctioned off by the Juniors, while the Seniors sold chances on two dolls. Mrs. Stewart kindly offered to dress the French doll donated by Miss Catherine Murphy, and the lucky winner was Mrs. Effie Warner. Mrs Yvonne Gillis received the chicken, and Shirley Poland won the variety basket. Books and other articles were donated by the teachers and townspeople, and through their aid the Club realized a profit of seventy-five dollars. - Through the Junior Classical League, the students purchased a Latin magazine, the Auxilium Latinum, in addition to several attractive posters which can be seen in Room 113f Sterling silver club pins were presented to the upper class members. Q, The members are now looking forward to the annual May Day breakfast and banquet. These Spring events are always as enjoyable as those which take place during the Fall and Winter. With a memorable year behind them, the younger members of the Club can look ahead to future years filled with fun, good times, and work well done.

A THE LIBRARY CLUB The sole purpose of the Library Club is to be of service to the school. Membership in the club is limited to students who are librarians in the school library. Without them the school could have no library, because funds are not suflicient to hire a full-time librarian. Pupils who wish to become members are trained outside of school time, for three weeks in the fall, by Mrs. Anderson, who received her library training at Simmons College. They are required to pass an examination, and then each pupil who is fully qualified, takes charge of the library for one period each day. Until this year, they have had full responsibility for discipline, keeping the library in order, and giving assistance to pupils. This year, with the larger teachng force, it has been possible to have a teacher in the library during several of the periods. This has been a help in maintaining order. It is hoped that by next year, the library will be enlarged by the addition of the adjoining room. Already a part of the wall has been removed and glass windows set in, making both rooms lighter. The large case containing minerals has been moved into the new room and a door cut through. When it is' possible to get lumber, shelves and tables will be built and the library will be more useful than now. The Library Club meets once a week through the school year, and holds two social affairs every year. These usually are tasting parties or weenie roasts. When a member has served for two years she receives a white felt "R" silhouetted against a white book. This can be worn as any school insignia is worn.

This society in high school corresponds to the Phi Beta Kappa Society in college. T Membership is based on scholarship, leadership, service and character as shown throughout a a studentis high school course. Selection is made by a board of four teachers and the principal. To be elected a member of this society is considered the highest honor that can be conferred cn a student. Gold pins are worn after initiation. ' . Each year at Last Chapel, an impressive initiation ceremony is held and a pledge to the society is given. One social affair, to which old and new members are invited, is usually part of the commence- ment festivities. Page Seventy-T11 ree Srqrnrggqs 'Closure S. H. S.

BAND - 1945-1946 The SHS Band, always a very active organization, has had an unusually busy year. Perhaps this is due to some measure to the eliminations of war-time restrictions. The happy advent of peace enabled the band to make the trips to football games. It traveled with the team to Augusta, Waterville and Biddeford, where favorable comments made our ears tingle. The band, while not as large as it was prior to the war, is gradually building up and what it may lack in size is more than offset by its quality. This is due to the higher require- ment standards for membership. The annual Band Concert presented on May eighth was a distinct success both musically and financially. Irene Beaudet, as the vocal soloist, was,very pleasing. The Band made a most creditable showing later at Sanford on May eleventh when the first Music Festival since the war was held.

Page Seventy-F our Srl-Q,rHQNs 'Ckgnurr STUDENT COUNCIL At the first meeting, from a large number of contestants, the Student Council selected the cheer- leaders for the coming year. Then the body formally organized, choosing as their officers: E President ............................,...........,.........r..... Ruth Ahara Vice-president ...........................................,..,. Lorraine Fleck Secretary .,..........,..,..,..,..........,......................... Jean Thomas Treasurer ............,..,.........,........,............ : ..,..... Jean Constantine The main goal for the fall term was the opening of Teen Town. A committee was appointed to see Mr. Harold Noyes concerning the use of the Institute. The meeting was held and a tentative date for the opening night was set. It was agreed that the Institute would furnish music and a re- freshment booth, while the profits or losses and governing problems would be taken care of by the student body of Stephens High School. Only boys and girls attending the school were to be admitted, with special cards for visitors. After a week's postponement, the gala opening was held on De- cember l4th with a capacity crowd of one hundred thirty. Red and green Christmas decorations had been planned by the committee headed by Jacklyn Herbert. Mayor John Phillips was in charge of the refreshments. Teen Town continued to run successfully during the Christmas vacation, but when school started, changes had to be made. Each class was assigned the duty of running Teen Town for one week end. The arrangements for opening the club were made by the class presidents while it remained the duty of the Student Council to see that supervisors were present. Then the attention of the group was turned to the basketball season, and the Council assumed the responsibilities of the Athletic Association until the body should be organized. In addition to selling and collecting tickets, refreshments were served to the boys at the close of each game, fol- lowed by the work of the "Cleanup Committee". It was voted that students entering athletics should receive a red chenille letter the first time, and the regulation white following that. Music letters were granted to members of the band and orchestra who had served for two years, although those receiving them could not become members of the "R" Clubs. The Student Council wishes to thank all those who have given their time to make Teen Town and other activities of this school year a success.

The team as a whole consisted of very good material with veteran players in nearly every position. Losing only two players by graduation the Panthers anticipated a successful 1946 season. Returning this year was Gerald Gallant behind the plate for his second season. John Phillips returned for his third year on the mound. He pitched well last year and made a strong man for the team this spring. Ty Kaubris took over first base for his second year. Ted Clark, the key man of the Panthers returned as shortstop. He had the highest hitting average in the lineup last spring. McCleary gained much experience at third base and took over that position this season. In the outfield, three lettermen re- turned with previous exprience to their credit. They played their last season this spring. 'David Leclerc, Bob Watson and John Dupill, at right, center, and left Helds respectively. Besides these players mentioned, there are many more who displayed much ability in the past season and more- over earned their letters. They also played in many of the scheduled games. With all these potential players Coach Ryder produced an unusually fine team this spring. Raymond Baum, who has coached baseball at Stephens High School for the past fifteen years, resigned his post at the end of the 1945 season. His successor is Coach Joseph Ryder.

Mr. William Waldron, in his first year of coaching here at Stephens, brought many new ideas which as the season progressed proved to be helpful in correcting and guiding the players. ' The squad of boys which turned out at the beginning of the season was not very large and boasted only one returning letter-man, Bill Paterson, He was unable to finish the season which was a setback for the team. John Phillips returning for his third year on the court, played a great floor game throughout the season. Ted Clark was another strong man on the lineup, averaging 20 points per game. He was elected honorary captain of the team. , The Panthers opened their season on December 7, with a fast alumni team which completely outclassed the boys in the opener.. The team went on to lose to a strong Cony tive with a 74 to 30 score. Aroused to a fighting spirit, the team came through with a substantial 44 to 26 win over Livermore Falls. Laurence High School, with a heartbreaking last minute spurt, beat the Panthers 39 to 30. The team then came back with a 39 to 20 win from Wilton. The Panthers lost two decisive games to Thornton and Deering 48-23 and 49-18. Not disheartened, the Stephens Hve beat a good Berlin team to a 34-33 score. The Panthers came out of their slump winning the firstof their rival games with Mexico 40-37. In a topsy-turvy game, Lewiston edged a 33-28 on the stubborn Panthers. The Panthers then lost to Edward Little 48-32. In a see-saw return game, Laurence edged a 41-37 win over the Panthers. In the Lewiston game the Panthers restored some of their spirit with a 37-25 win. Berlin won their return game 46-32. A fast Thornton team won again. The highlight of an otherwise not too successful season came when the Stephens team fought the outstanding Edward Little team to a 48-45 score. Edward Little went on to win the State Championship. A rejuvenated Panther team finished their season by beating Mexico, Livermore, and Wilton in consecutive games. . The next years' basketball team will be somewhat stronger with 8 out of 10 varsity men returning and a number of experienced players. ' The Freshmen, under supervision of Coach Leonard, and the Junior High, coached by Mr. Hillman, have come a long way in the past year. The Stephens teams of the future certainly should do well and the Senior class of 1946 wishes them the best of luck. Page Seventy-Nine STQPHIQNS 'CIQBUTE - BOY'S HR" CLUB ' Front row:AR.CMe1anson, D.

This year's initiation proved to be as tough as any previously held. However, the paddling, the stunts and humiliating forfeits found the initiates equal to the occasion, though pretty sore in some spots after the session. During this day of the initiation the female impersonations of our athletic males are really sumpin'. This fine group of huskies is composed of Jim Boyle, Dick Shea, Ty Kaubris, Vinnie Morrison, Tom Dyer, Bill Paterson, Dick Melanson, Melvin Aylward, Albert Cyr, Richard MacDonnell, Walter Pillsbury, Whitey Roy, Mike Lavorgna, John Lapointe, John Free- man, John Rowe, and Dom Gaccetta. These new members bring the club membership to twenty-seven which is the largest member- ship for several years. , The second big event is the annual banquet held at the Methodist Church dining-room. How the ladies produce food in such abundance has always been a mystery-but produce it they do and serve us a bang-up good meal. At this time officers for the ensuing year ,are elected. Fine talks by men who know sports entertain all fortunate enough to attend the aifair.

They are: President-Ruth Scrone Vice President-Barbara McKellick Treasurer-Marjorie Jay , Secretary-Isabelle Garneau The question of earning money was discussed and a Mystery Box was voted as the best means to raise funds. , The members decided that they should first initiate the Senior girls who made their letter in basketball last year. Those initiated were: Barbara Arsenault Sally Rowe Anita Carrier Claire Steele Jean Gammon Barbara Stewart Frances Martin Jean Thomas Pauline Martin . Shirley Thorne ' June Pretty Jean Whyte Some of their initiation stunts were to attend school dressed in overalls, colored blouse, hair in pigtails, and odd, very odd accessories. That same night the real initiation was held in the cafeteria where each new member earned her membership through a painful process. ' ' Regular meetings were held 'the second week of each month. After the business was concluded, a social hour and refreshmentrwere enjoyed. Hikes, a bicycle ride and a picnic were included among the activities. C Many members ordered "R" Club pins in April and sported them the rest of the year. New members, having earned a letter in softball, will be initiated next fall replacing the graduating girls.

GIRL'S BASKETBALL CHAMPS This picture of the basketball girls represents last year's group, however most of the girls turned out again this year to help maintain the senior girls' high standing as champion hoopsters, Although Stephens High girls have no outside games, much enthusiasm and rivalry is shown in the interscholastic tournament. Last year this group, then juniors, much to the chagrin of the upper class were the champions of the tournament and were presented letters. This year, after three hard-fought games, the seniors again came out on top to prove to all that they were still the superior players. Girls' basketball should be outstanding in Stephens and these "Champs" sincerely hope that in years to come they will be able to return to the Alma Mater to watch and cheer for a united basketball team. b Page Eighty-Two S'l'.E.l'HQNS ICRQBUTQ CHEERLEADERS Cheerleaders, left to right: Joan Leader, Ruth Broomhall, Viola Theriault, Pauline Martin, Miss Lombard fsponsorl Isabelle Gallant.

FOOTBALL SUMMARY The Stephens High School Panthers closed its football season November 11, with an unblemished record of eight wins and one tie. For the first time in several years, the Panthers were acclaimed the State Champions. Besides being undefeated, the gridders set another record, being the least scored- on team in the state, with only 25 points scored against them, while as an offensive team they scored the second highest, a total of 192 points. Under the expert coaching of Joseph Ryder, assist- ed by James Connors, the Panthers were able to attain this record. With two victories acquired, Rumford felt secure to meet the heavy Lewiston team. Blackie Bernard of Lewiston was the main threat to the Stephens gridders, but with the help of expert blocking and passing, Rumford came out on top, with the score Rumford 145 Lewiston 12. This hard-fought game helped to strengthen the Red Panthers for the most important game on its card, held on the following Saturday at Waterville. After three scoreless periods, a long pass from Shiro to Marden converted, and Waterville streaked ahead, 7-0. Then Rumford opened up a barrage of passes midway in the period and Phillips finally connected with one to "Spike" Theri- ault, who ran from the thirty to score. Melanson rushed the extra point to knot the score 7-7. A few minutes later the game ended. The result was a tie for the second consecutive year. On October 20, 3,000 fans saw one of the best high school games in the state for many years. This was the contest between Rumford and Cony at Augusta. The score was tied until the fourth period, when a Cony kick was blocked by a Panther linesman. The ball bounced out of bounds in the end zone, registering 2 points for Rumford, and thus an unforgettable game ended. With but two more games to be played to claim the State Championship, the Panthers trav- elled to Biddeford to play the Saint Louis eleven. The powerful Stephens eleven held the Saint Louis team to no downs, the game ending with Rumford at the top of a 14-0 score. At the end of the season the Chamber of Commerce honored the team with a banquet. The entire football squad, the band, and the cheerleaders attended. John Dupill was elected hon- orary Captain of the team. Page Eighty-Four V S-rqrugqs 'Clqnurr GIRIBS SOFTBALL TEAR! Front gots: gatricia McHale. Gloria Carrier, Beverley Delano.

D TRACK SUMMARY The 1945 track team coached by Joseph Ryder had a comparatively good season. They entered four meets throughout the season. The first meet was at Bates Field in Lewiston between Edward Little and Stephens and the former won. Next came a triangular meet at Bethel between Gould, Stephens and Fryeburg. Stephens took a second place and Gould came out on top. In the third meet between Wilton, Farmington and Stephens, the Panthers took a first place. The last and most important meet was the State meet. Here Tom Burgess, a veteran trackrnan, now attending Gould, took second place in the 440 yard dash. Don Curley took a second place in the discus throwing event. The 1946 team should have a favorable season this spring with such veterans as: Boyle, Meehan, Cyr, Curley, Alyward, Perry, Gamache, McCarthy, Crawford, and Puiia. The meets on the 1946 card include one at Lewiston, Edward Little, Wilton, Farmington, Gould, Fryeburg and the State meet. - The list of the 1945 Team is as follows: Burgess-220 and 440 yard dash Meehan-Shot Put and Discus Boyle-Broad jump and High jump Dennis-Javelin and High Jump Casey-100 yards, low hurdles and shot put Jones-Mile Morrison-Pole vault MacDonald-Pole vault and High jump Cyr-Javelin, 220 and low hurdles Freeman-Broad jump, javelin and low hurdles Curley-Discus and 100 yard dash Manson-Shot put Alyward-440 yard dash Other members Were: MacLean 8803 Puiia the mileg McCarthy 4405 Gamache 8805 Perry 440 and discus, Crawford 440g and Oldham 880.

Winter Sports team had a late start they, nevertheless, made a fine showing this winter. After very little practice they completed in a meet at Edward Little of Auburn, and took over a fourth place. The next trip was to Bethel for the State meet. Here Stephens made a good showing with a fourth place with nine schools competingf Melvin Aylward took a first place in the jumping events and thus gained the honor of being the State Schoolboy Champion in jumping. Robert Nadeau barely missed a first place in the downhill event. The following week the team returned to Bethel and took a second place in a triangular meet. The Hnal meet on the S. H. S. card was held in Rumford on February 23. Six schools competed in this carnival. Edward Little took over the first place and Stephens a fourth, However, Rumford won in the jumping contest, with Alyward leaping 122 feet. . ' I This winter Stephens was especially strong in jumping, and next year they will improve in the other events, as the majority of the team are underclassmen. Mr. Brennick, the Winter Sports Coach, should be congratulated on the fine work he has done in reviving the Winter Sports at Stephens.

Shall we meet as Classmates Forevergin that land beyond the blue? The years that we spent at old Stephens, will they seem like yesterday? The hours that now are laggard, will they then seem fleeting and gay? Shall we talk of days that were happy and the kindness that prevailed? Shall we mention our disappointments and the times we almost failed? Yes, each will tell what happened after Stephens' halls were left, What joy, success, or griefs were ours when of High School friend bereft. Though now the parting is bitter, there is a future, when, With mortal toil and sorrows o'er, we all shall meet again. Srqrl-mNs .'Cxgnuz'Q SUCCESS TO THE- CLASS OF, 1946!

Takes the Cake HMV ,amily thinks there's something wrong Withlgie simply because I like buckwheat cakes," th woman complained to the psycho-analyst. ,..f9But there's nothing unusual about liking 'buckwheat cakes," the puzzled doctor said. "I like them myself." "Oh, you do!" the woman exclaimed. "Then you must come up some day. I have ten trunks full." "Miss Alice ain't home," said, the colored maid to a caller, "she's done gone down to de class.'f "What class?" asked the caller. "Miss Alice gwine to be married, you know, an' ,she's taking lessons in domestic silence." Quiet, Please Neighbor Smith: "I'd like to borrow your radio tonight." Neighbor Jones: "Having a party?" Neighbor Smith. "No, Just want to get some sleep." Nothing New Susie Q.: "Could I see the captain?" First Mate: "He's forward, Miss." Susie Q.: "Oh, that's all right. l've been out with high school boys." Post-Mortem This is the story of two privates who paused to puzzle over a dead animal they saw at the roadside. "It has two stripes," said one. "That settles it," said the other. "It's either a skunk or a corporal!" The following ten-word telegram is said to have been sent by a canny Scotsman: "Bruises hurt. Erased afford. Erected. Analysis hurt too. Infectious dead." Received by an equally canny Scot, the telegram was decoded: "Bruce is hurt. He raced a Ford. He wrecked it. Aunt Alice hurt too. In fact she's dead." Eighteen words in all. An Irishman, who was very fond of his in- telligent nephew, wrote the youngster when he heard that he had entered a seminary: "I hope that I may live long enough to hear you preach my funeral sermon." The man who found a valuable pearl in an oyster stew in a night club the other evening almost broke even. Oops! A young man entered a florist's shop and or- dered two dozen roses sent to his fiancee on her twenty-fourth birthday. On the card he wrote, "One for every year of your life." After he had gone the proprietor said to the clerk, "He's a good customer, send three dozen." There was no wedding. ' Ripping, Eh What? "Really, old chappiej' said the Briton, "I need not hesitate to depart from your presence be- cause of this drizzle. I'm coated for it. As you can see, I have on my waterproof, besides a pullover beneath my waistcoat. I should have been home long ago, but I stopped at the kiosk for a sheet and as I pranced past, thought I might fall in for a chin with you. Thanks for the sweet. It was really pipping of you. Chee- rio." The American managed a faint goodbye but not until much later did he figure out what the Briton had meant. "Really, my friend, I shouldn't hesitate to leave you just because it's raining a little. I'm dressed for it. As you see, I have on my rain- coat, besides a sweater under my vest. I should have been home long ago, but I stopped at the newsstand for a paper, and, as I walked past, thought I might as Well stop in for a chat with you. Thanks for the lunch. It was really nice of you. Goodbye." Moe Is No Moe A whimsical bugler named Moe, Who thought it was funny to blow His horn at eleven Is now up in heaven, Which ainlt where they told him to go. Two negro soldiers stoodpn the deck of their ship -at sea, looking out over the expanse of water. Said one, "That's the mos' watah I evah see in all mah life." Said the other, "Brother, you ain't seen nothini That's just the top of it." "Father," said the young hopeful, "What is a traitor in politics?" - ' "A traitor, my son, is a man who leaves our party and goes over to the other one." "Well, then what is the man who leaves his party and comes over to yours?" "A convert, my son." Salesman: "I say, sonny, is your mother at home?" Small Boy: "Yes, sir." Salesman Cafter knocking in vainbz "I thought you said she was home." Small Boy: "Yes, sir, but I don't live here." Cure "I understand that Mimi has cured her Scotch boy-friend of stuttering. How did she do it?" "She called him up long distance collect." ' And Dry? Waiter: And what will you have to drink? Bill: Ginger ale. Waiter: Pale? ' Bill: Oh, goodness no, just a glass. Insignificant Mother: Tommy, don't give the baby money to play with. He might swallow it, and anyway money has germs on it. Tommy: Not this money: germs couldn't live on my allowance.
