Their "Ave Maria" was outstanding. The decorations for Win- ter Wonderland, the Christmas Social presented by Mr. Thibodeau and his "sophs", were the most artis- tic we have seen for some time. Do you recall how well the basketball team looked in their new uniforms at the first game? All eyes were on Al Philbrick, the new Mace." The team went to Boston during the Christmas holidays and commented on their trip during an assembly program. Seems to have been something they'll remember. When the first double-header was held at the Armory, featuring Stephens and Mexico each at scheduled games, it was some cause for excitement. Why did Stephens have to lose against St. Dom by one point? Excitement ran high when Stephens, after winning the last three games of the season, de- feated Cheverus in the play-offs and thereby won a tournament spot . . . for the first time since 1942. At the end of the season, Jim Orino was awarded the Fallon Trophy and acclaimed the most improved player and best sport of the team. Matt Clark, hav- ing been named the most valuable player, received the Redskins Trophy. Shortly after school reopened after the Christmas holidays, Ted Lamb and Ed Touchette were named student chairmen of the Winter Carnival, and they began at once to make plans for this gala event. As soon as mid-years were over. oueen candidates were announced in assembly and the campaign began. We ,seniors were backing Sylvia, and the next two weeks were busy ones. An outstanding event of those two weeks was our Seniors vs. Old Timers bas- ketball game. How could anyone forget thatl Among our other activities were a variety program and food, sandwich, and candy sales . . . and don't for- get those Dolly Duzits! Iiebruary 4 marked the cli- max of the campaign, and Pat Downing, junior, was crowned queen of the "Indoor Circus" Ball. Over this week end no classes met, because students and faculty were needed to assist in the FIS Worldis Championship skiing events. Even as early as February and March we seniors were already preparing for graduation. Cap and gown measurements were taken, bills for class dues arrived from Mrs. Anderson, and many plans were being made for the Washington trip. In March, honor students and members of the National Honor Society were announced, making graduation seem closer than ever. Wfe chose Fern Melanson as our DAR candidate and do believe that no one deserved it more than she. The most important dramatic production of the year, to us, was our senior play. The cast for Snafu was selected around the first of October. Presented on November 17 and 18, the play proved to be "dynamite" and a grand success. The Footlight Club's delightful ccmedv, You Canit Take It with You, was given in March. The district contest one- act plays were at Rumford in April,.Tl7e Finger of God being the Stephens High School entry. i Among the highlights in entertainment at Stephens during the year were several special assemblies. By arrangement with the Assembly Service, the talents of well-known artists were brought to the Abbott Auditorium stage. An "olden day" comedy was pre- sented by the Conservatory Players in October. In December, "Papa,' Cavalieu, the violinist who enter- tained, will always be remembered for his "Stardust", and we'll never forget Hugo, his pianist, for the "Minute Waltz." Ernest johnson, the negro singer, came soon afterward and was outstanding in his in- terpretations of "Danny Boy" and the "The Rosary." Diane Dixon, the Bird Girl, appeared in January and gave a clever whistling performance. The February guest artist, Grace Wolpert Keene, was really enjoyed for her dramatic sketches from I Remember Mama and Mamais Bank Account., Ar this writing, we look forward with anticipation to the gay dances which will be presented by the fresh- men, the junior high, the Latin Club, and the Glee Club, to Mr. Nicoloff's Band Concert, to a spectacu- lar Music Festival at Sanford, and, most of all, to an elegant and successful Senior Prom . . . a special high spot to remember. The concluding events of our days at Stephens will be held during the last week of school. We await the solemn Baccalaureate Services, the quiet Last Chapel, the happy Class Day, the jolly Class Banquet, and, last of all, the Graduation Exercises. As we leave to go our way into life, we know that whatever goal we may reach can be attributed to Stephens, and the happy days spent behind her doors will never be forgotten. THE TRIBUTE ,T- ,g,Yi4gf,ga- PagLTlvirty-:even SENIOR Looking back over the months, we see our first week as seniors. We recall how we then were looking forward to our last and happiest year at S. H. S. When our first "senior" assembly was held, all the underclassmen stood up for usl Mr. Niles spoke at that assembly and wanted to interview us regarding our future. It was a pleasant thought. The first football game was heldwith Livermore at the end of that week. Stephens won, and we cel- ebrated at the dance which we seniors sponsored afterwards. At the second game of the season, we put up our food concession. Remember how the new teachers, Mr. Thibodeau and Mr Niles, helped us sell? Mr. Brennick also offered his services. No wonder we sold out so quickly! Boy! How the band strutted in their new uniforms! Our "Pre-Football Social" was among the high- lights of the first month, and do you remember how it rained on that night? However, we were a grand success. Could this have been because the Junior and Senior Varsity Panthers were our guests? We wondered. The Junior High and Freshman Reception was another highlight. As these boys and girls paraded in the gym with stuffed dolls and green bows, we seniors found it hard to believe that we were once as young as they. The month of October brought the Noontime Recreation Program, sponsored by Mr. Negratti. Everyone was interested in this new feature, which began on October 3. The Tribute was off to an early start with the first meeting on October 4. Editor Richard Schwind and many committee members began to get busy on our yearbook. Remember the day,ilate in November, when the entire school arrived in "Sunday Bestv? Group pictures were being taken for our Tribute. Weill never forget Open House at the Oxford Mill, which was held on October 5. This interesting, educational tour lasted three class periqds, with re- freshments and souvenirs awaiting us at the end. Important games of the month were with St. Louis znd Bangor. Coach Ryder's 'QSt. Louis Blues? were certainly well illustrated by Michaud and Dohertyss skit at the rally before the St. Louis game. The MEMORIES Men's Glee Club cheered the students up a bit, and we know that no one will ever forget Mr. Thibodeau's "Allouette." Do you recall how the Bangor team stayed to celebrate their victory at the Debaters' Social following the game? Hmmm. In accordance with tradition, the last game of the season was held with Mexico on November 11, and Stephens came home with the victory ball. Rudy Gauthier was named the most valuable player of the season. At a special assembly on October 10, Mr. Howard started the magazine drive off with a joke. Soon after, the Hallowe'en Art Contest was previewed by Mrs. .Seneshal and Mr. Thibodeau during an as- sembly program. Faye Holt, our artist, won first prize. Soon after Paul Guay and "Skip" Lyons started taking orders for name cards, the Loring photo- grapher began taking pictures . . . the colorful parade of neckties certainly vierified that! Our proofs came around the' first of November, and all the pictures and retakes arrived in time for Christmas. The Teachers' Convention began the day after the magazine drive ended. A well-earned vacation? A cute skit was given by Mr. McGorrill at that as- sembly that marked the end of the drive. Remember his cheer? Y The American Education Week assembly was one of the finest. Mr. Thibodeau was the perfect MC, and with the Glee Club songs, movies by Mr. Hill- man, and pep talks from Mr. Ryder and Mr. Zollo, the program was complete. Stephens High Open House was held during this week. Everyone enjoyed the many demonstrations, as well as the refreshments served at the close of the evening. Wasn't the Juniors' Harvest Ball a grand way to start the Thanksgiving recess? It was an active evening when the Dramatic Club, the Latin Club, and the Commercial Club all hield parties at the high school. Remember? In spite of the fact that Stephens's rivals, Mexico, overscored the team at their basketball court just a few days before Christmas, everyone really had the Christmas spirit after the assembly on December 22. The Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Murphy, Page Forty 1 . . THE TRIBUTE iii, miiin Mimi i Winm f wi PagiTlvzrty-nnfer Page Forty-two A ,EFHE TRIBUTE CLASS OF 1951 For the juniors, this year has certainly been full of excitement. We started the year by getting our class rings. At long last we were able to flash them around. The next junior event was the Harvest Ball. The gymnasium was beautifully decorated, and Tim Stearns and Fay Allen were chosen king and queen. We again had Gordon Howe's Orchestra, and all who attended enjoyed themselves. During the Winter Carnival session we juniors again proved that we were "go-gettersv and that nothing but tops would satisfy us. For the second time our candidate was queen. Surely Stephens High has never had a prettier queen than Pat Downing. We have, so far, a record to be proud of, and we cer- tainly plan to keep up the good work. As far as sports go, the junior boys have certainly distinguished th.emselves. We are all eagerly wait- ing for next year to .see what they can do for us. Many of our class members participate in the T1 CLASS OF 1951 First Row: G. Anten, K. Gill, R. Gillis, S. Holland, M. Carrier, I. Cormier, J. Burns, J. DiConzo, A. Clark, W. Doherty. Second Row: 1.

We have some very good talent and certainly hope that they will be able to continue in this field. , One of our most prominent boys, Bob Parent, was elected president at the recent annual meeting of Maineis Student Council Association. This is an or- ganization in which representatives from student coun- cils throughout the state meet and discuss student government for the high school students. They cert' tainly made a wise choice in electing Bob, because he is very capable of fulfilling his job satisfactorily. In the field of dramatics and public speaking the juniors have taken an active part, many appearing in the Footlight Club play, You Canit Take It Witlr You. Junior Prize Speaking was another highlight of the year. All in all, this year has been very successful for our class, and none of us will ever forget it.

Decorated with huge wreaths and Christmas trees, the gymnasium represented a Winter Wonder- land. At one of the first meetings of the year, the class elected Mr. Louis Thibodeau as its sponsor. He has done a wonderful job this year, especially during the Carnival campaign. The sophomore queen candidate was Janet Davis, with Theodore Fraser acting as her manager.

Since the bankruptcy of the printed paper early in 1948, the publication has been successfully mimeographed. This year, each issue averaged more than twelve pages. An inexperienced staff with a new sponsor pub- lished the first issue last October with great results. Since that time, half the students have subscribed to the paper, and practically all the students have read each issue. Next year, the school may try again to have a printed paper.

Une of our most active groups, it has done a great deal for the school this year. In addition to presenting the three-act comedy, You Can't Take It with You, and several short plays, it is acting as host for the prelim- inary contest for the State of Maine one-act plays. One of our best socials this year was that sponsored by this group. Besides entertaining, the Club has spent more than one hundred dollars this year for such additions as a French door and a window for our stage. It has also presented to the library three books on make-up and costumingg to its own library it has added numer- ous plays. The oflicers are: Co-Presidents, Eleanor Peters, Robert Rubino, Treasurer, Paul Jones, and Secretary, Mary Ann Dyer. During the meetings, aside from the business, the members participate in readings, plays, and pantomimesg and several have also di- rected plays for assemblies. It can easily be seen by the fact that fifty of the Footlighters have been cast in the plays this year that the Club has been successful in teaching the funda- mentals of good acting.

A. is one of the newest clubs in Ste- phens High School and is the largest chapter of the organization in the state. The purpose of the club is to further the members' interest in homemalcing. The first meeting this year was a picnic at Stearns's camp at Worthley Pond. In December, at a candlelight service held in the gymnasium, the new members were initiated and the new oflicers were in- stalled. At Christmas time the club sponsored a party for pre-school children. This spring they are planning to attend the State Convention and to give a dance. The oflicers are: President, Mildred Fisher, Vice- President, Barbara Noonan, Treasurer, Catherine Mehigang Secretary, Carmella DiConzog Song Lead- er, Barbara Gamble, Historian, Avis Chilclg Reporter, Joyce Gamble.

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The purpose of the Athletic Associa- ciation is to promote school spirit and sportsmanship, to systematize athletics, and to place these athletics on a sound financial basis. The A. A. Council consists of ten members: the principal, the athletic di- rector, the officers of the Association, the faculty manager, and a representa- tive from each of the three lower class- es. The Council acts in an advisory ca- pacity. It also has the power of award- ing all letters, letter certificates, and sweaters to those who have earned them. The oflicers of the Athletic Association Council for 1949-50 are: Rudy Gauthi- er, Presidentg Tim Stearns, Vice-Presi- dent, Rita Polero, Secretaryg Joan Pui- ia, Treasurer. FOOTBALL The Stephens Panthers experienced in 1949 their least successful season since Coach Ryder took over the coaching reins in 1944. Lack of experience and constant injuries proved costly to the team. Rudy Gauthier and Bob Marchisio were the only returning regulars. Coach Ryder was assisted by Mr. Ralph Parmigiane, who did a fine job in getting the team in the necessary condition for the rugged schedule. The Panthers opened the gridiron season by taking Livermore 19-0. Rudy Gauthier scored on the first play from scrimmage. The play covered 67 yards. Norm Theriault and Turk Evanoii' scored the other touchdowns. The Rydermenithen played hosts to St. Dominic's. The game was marked by good running and tackling. Evanoif, Mayo, an.d Gauthier tallied for the Panthers, the final score being 19-7. Lewiston was the first to halt the Ryder charges, taking them 27-0. Pass interception and hard-driving Lewiston backs paved the way for this victory. The next game found the Panthers from Rumford battling the Panthers of Waterville. Rumford com- pletely dominated the field of play but was held score- less by a scrappy Waterville team. Most of the game was in Waterville territory. The St. Louis eleven, in quest of the state cham- pionship, came to Rumford still smarting over the 14-6 defeat received last year. The Saints and the Panthers fought on even terms in the first half, but St. Louis took command in the second half and went on to win 24-0. The Rydermen traveled to Augusta to take on the Cony Rams. The Panthers' first score was made by Gauthier, recovering a blocked kick for a safety. While holding the Rams scoreless, the Panthers scored two touchdowns to assure themselves of the victory. Bangor, which was another strong contender for the crown and was also smarted over last year's defeat, gained revenge on the Rumfordites by the score of 39-7. Bangor scored in the opening minutes, only to have the Panthers come right back to tally. The Rams then used all their power and assortment of tricks to go on to win handily. The Edward Little charges stopped the Panthers in the next contest, scoring a 33-7 victory.

Coach N cgratti g BASKETBALL Under their new coach, Mr. Negratti, the Stephens Panthers had a fairly successful season on the basket- ball court in 1949-50. Built around three lettermen including newcomer Al Philbrick, the team had dif- ficulty getting on the winning trail for the first half of the schedule, but hard work and fine team play showed results in the latter half as the players hit their stride. By virtue of wins over Edward Little and St. Louis, the Panthers were selected for the tour- nament. In the play-offs they overpowered a favored Cheverus team but were then defeated in the quarter- finals by Westbrook, the seeded No. 1 team of the 7 tourney. Coach Negratti did a splendid job of bringing the boys along. He gave many underclassmen the ex- perience needed to produce winning teams in later years. John Morton, a freshman, and Matt Clark, a junior, were among the starting quintet. The Panthers will lose Doug Morton, Al Philbrick, Jim Orino, and Ernie Steele via graduation. Dick Orino, Gerard Patrie, Bobo Martin, Saul Schwind, Paul Theriault, and Ronald Rouleau, along with Clark and Morton, will be among the candidates Coach Negratti will have to work with next year.

The Panthers showed their spirit, however, by scoring in the last quarter. In the last game of the year the Rumford Panthers and the Mexico Pintos met in their traditional rivalry game. Both teams were held scoreless in the first half, though Rumford had possession of the ball most of the time. In the second half, Norm Theriault and Evanolf scored for the Panthers to give them the nod, 13-0. Ronald Rouleau kicked all the extra points for the Rydermen. He made an average of fifty per cent, booting six out of twelve tries. Nineteen forty-nine was Coach Joe Ryderis last year as football mentor at Stephens. I-Ie resigned from both teaching and coaching. Mr. Ryder coached two championship teams, and another squad had a claim to the title. We are indebted to him, therefore, and wish to express our appreciation to him for thus bringing Stephens into the limelight. Page Seventy-Iwo TI-I E TRIBUTE BASEBALL First Row: J. Curato, R.

Shea BASEBALL 1949 The Stephens Panthers, fielding a veteran nine plus another veteran pitcher, opened the 1949 season by defeating Morse of Bath 4-3, in ten innings. The Rydermen then defeated Brunswick 5-4 in another ten-inning contest at Rumforcl. With two victories, the Panthers traveled to Lewiston, where Paul Clifford broke the string by shutting out the Rumford boys 6-O. Rumford then played host to the Eddies and was defeated 5-3 in twelve innings. St. Dom made it three straight defeats for the Panthers by eking out a 2-1 triumph. The Panthers must have been saving their batting power, because they banged out twenty hits against Mexico and won easily, 19-8. Morse was on the short end of a 2-1 score, then the Panthers lost to Brunswick 8-3. The Lewiston Blue Devils visited Rumford and clouted their way to a 9-1 victory behind the 3-hit pitching of Paul Cliiford. Ioe Curato banged a home run in Stephens's 4-2 win over Edward Little. The Panthers then wound up their baseball season by trouncing Mexico 14-1. Louis Morin was the standout hurler for the Panthers, winning four and dropping two. Dick Melanson took batting honors with an average of .325. Others batting over .300 were Wayne Ruif and Carl Gallant. The season consisted of six wins and five losses. DiConzo, Mayo, and McKenna will be the only let- termen returning in the Spring of 1950, but Coach Baum, who succeeds Coach Ryder, hopes that capa- ble ballplayers such as Matt Clark, Doug Morton, Ernie Steele, Wes Scrone, C. Martineau, and Mor- ton will help bring the Panthers a successful season. THE TRIBUTE, g g Page Seventy-one FRESI-IMAN BASKETBALL From a group originally coached by Mr. Negratti, two squads were formed, the Jayvees remaining under his direc- tion and Coach Parmigiane taking over the freshmen. The Jayvees had a fair- ly successful season, and most of the boys played at some time or other on the varsity. All are groomed as good prospects for years to come. The squad consisted of Saul Schwind, Paul Theriault, Gerard Pa- trie, Leon Poirier, Joe Morrison, Ed Belanger, Gerald Marchisio, Ronald Rouleau, Robert Morrison, and Diclc Orino. Eight of these are freshmen, Rouleau and Orino are juniors. The FRESHMAN BASKETBALL First Row: E. Belanger, L. Theriault, R. Marcellino, L, Poirier, A, Boudreau. Second Row: G. Lafleur, Mgr., D.

They certainly succeeded in choosing a very PSPPY SYOUP- The cheerleaders were very fortunate in being able to accompany the boys on all the football and basketball trips, in- cluding that to the basketball tourna- ment. They drew up a new constitution which was approved by the Student Council. This states that a cheerlead- er has to serve two years on che squad in order to earn a chenille letter. This year the seniors are receiving little gold megaphones. Page Seventy-four THE TRIBUTE TRACK First Row: Mr. Leonard, Morrison, T. Grace, W. Rulf, E. Carrier, A. Sarle, R. Seymour, M. Phclps.

They won one of three dual meets and placed second in a triangular meet with Frye- burg and Mexico. In the Androscog- gin Valley League and County Meets the Rumford boys ranked fourth and third respectively. They did not place in the State Meet. - Stephens had outstanding perform- ers in Donald Agostinelli, Jim Brown, and Ashley Clark. The last, plus such capables as Tom Grace and Joe Mor- rison, will ,spearhead this spring's edi- tion of tracksters. Although there will be few returning veterans, Coach Leonard and his able assistant, Mr. Hillman, are ex- pecting many hopefuls, who in later years will no doubt prove as capable as their predecessors. CROSS COUNTRY The Stephens cross country team wound up a good 1949 season by de- feating the Dixfield Harriers on the home trail. The Panthers won a four- way meet at Dixfield and a triangular encounter at Andover. Lettermen for the year include: Gil Roderick, Bucky Broomhall, Ashley Clark, Bob Goudreau, Tom Grace, an-:l Ed Boulanger. With the exception of Roderick and Broomhall, both of whom are seniors, all of these boys will return next fall. The sport was in its third year at Stephens, and already the Panthers have proved themselves. With a nu- cleus of four lettermen, Coach Leonard is looking forward to another good sea- son on the trail. CROSS COUNTRY First Row: T. Fraser, Mgr., A. Clark, G. LaFleur, E. Broomhall, E.

GIRLS' SKI CLUB Approximately thirty-six girls answered Miss Apruzze,se's call for a girls' skiing group. I-Iowever, there proved to be only nine active members. They skied three or four nights a week at the Spruce Street slope and GIRLS' WINTER SPORTS occasionally at Scotty's Mountain. They traveled to Buckfield for a meet with the Buckfield High School girl skiers. Stephens won by 9.9, a feat which showed excellent training. The Kentis Hill Academy girls came here for another meet. The score was closer than the previous one, Stephens win- ring by 1.4.

They did not receive red chenille letters, as it is necessary that they win 80 per cent of their games to do so.

We smile and have but few halt words to say to one another, these last hours seem too glad, too brief, too tremulous for speech. The four years rich with fellowship are gone, and we are here, our goal within our reach, with work and laughter to look hack upon. Forward we gaze beyond this houris pride, forward to life and greater work and faith, and we, who strove and failed and fought and sighed, stand here with valiant hearts and shaken hreath. Half-sad, half-gay, we know one battle done, and set our courage toward the morrow,s sun. FRANCES FROST THE TRIBUTE! Page Seventy-:even TI-IE WINTER CARNIVAL Our annual winter sports event, the Carnival, was more successful this year than it has ever been. This great success was due primarily to the presence of the FIS ffiederation of International Skiersj . They were forced to hold elsewhere their cross country meet pre- viously ,scheduled to be held at Lake Placid, New York. The skiers had been practicing here in Rum- ford and had found the conditions to be excellent. After much discussion, the officials finally decided to conduct the event here. The FIS bought a large number of tickets to our Carnival. Some of the men even took part in our skiing events by doing exhibition jumping, after the Stephens boys' team had succeeded in winning its meet with Kents Hill, Andover, Norway, and Lewiston. The contest for queen was close. Patricia Down- ing, the junior candidate, received the honor of being crowned at the Carnival Ball. Much credit, how- ever, is due to the remaining classes for the splendid efforts they made to bring their candidates out on top. The "Indoor Circusi' Ball was the highlight of the entire Carnival. As the name suggests, the gym- nasium was decorated like a circus tent. There were cages containing lifelike monkeys, elephants, giraifes, and all sorts of animals that one might see at a real circus. At approximately 9:30 p. m., two heralds blew trumpets in the center of the gym. Members of the Ski Squad formed an archway with ski poles on each side of the throne. Then the spotlight was turned on, and the procession began. Patricia Macphee of the junior high class led, followed by Janet Davis, soph- more canclidateg Esther Gallant, freshman candidateg Sylvia Schwind, senior candidateg and the queen, Patricia Downing, escorted bv Mr. Finn Sorensen of the Chisholm Ski Club. Each of the queen' s at- tendants was accompanied by a flower girl who marched in front of her. The throne, in the form of a swan boat, was set on a colorful platform resembling a merry-go-round. After Miss Downing was seated on the throne, Mr. Sorenson gave a brief address and then crowned her queen of the Carnival. The queen, her attendants, the flower girls, and the heralds received gifts. Coach Hudson Brennick made awards to the ski team. The grand march, led by the queen and her partner, then introduced general dancing. The fun and pleasure everyone present experienced will be remembered by all in future years.
