entertained and led the traditional carols. 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
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-
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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

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.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The Student Council is the student
lawmaking body of the school. There
are fifteen members of this organiza-
tion, the junior high having a represen-
tative this year for the first time. Ofli-
cers for the year are Fernande Melan-
son, president, Robert Parent, vice-
presidentg and Marjorie Ahara, secre-
tary and treasurer.
Various committees have been ap-
pointed, among them an assembly com-
mittee, a general improvements commit-
tee, and a welcoming committee.
Members of the group have received statewide recognition. On December 17, 1949, at a Student Council
Convention at Augusta, Robert Parent was chosen president for next yearis convention. At the Western Maine
Student Government in Portland, on January 21, 1950, Fern Melanson served as president and Eddie Tou-
chette as a member of the executive board.
One of our former activities, debating, has been very successfully revived in the last two years. This year
the club added another cup to the school's collection by winning the Novice Division of the Bowdoin Inter-
scholastic Debate Forum. Ted Fraser was chosen as the best speaker in this group, while Natalie Stearns was

The Footlight Club, which was organized in 1946,
now has a membership of over sixty students. 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

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.

The F. H. 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.

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

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
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. The Ryder-
men couldn't get their offense started, and the defense

Coach N cgratti
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
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.

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
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.

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
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

The Stephens trackmen took part in
seven meets in the spring of 1949. 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.
The Stephens cross country team
wound up a good 1949 season by de-
feating the Dixfield Harriers on the

POEM FOR COMMMENCEMENT
This is the year at last, and the yearis bright day
that marks the proud fulfillment of our dream.
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.
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
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.
