The Broadcast is a mimeographed newspaper published semi-monthly by the stu-
dents of Stephens High School under the supervision of hir. Reginald Chamberlain.
The paper stresses news and current events of interest to the student body. This year
a Lost and Found Department has been established, a teacheris page containing tidbits
of faculty news has been inaugurated, and individual pages have been devoted to class
The Exchange Editor has had a busy year. The Broadcast has been sent to schools
as far away as Texas and Idaho. In return, we at Stephens have had the opportunity
to read interesting papers from these many far away schools.
Profits from sales of The Broadcast are used to expand the mechanical facilities
of the Commercial Department. A mimeograph machine has been purchased this year.

Mr. Gagliuso, conductor and director of the Stephens High School Band, swept
his files over the football field at half time this year with flashy marching drills ranging
from "Hokey Pokeyi' to "The Man Upstairs." The many hours of after school drilling
showed in the precision with which these snappy drills were executed.
In addition to marching at football games in the fall, the band has supplied musical
entertainment at all assembly programs. It has added pep to the many football and
The band also participated as a guest in a joint concert at Dexter High on March
20. This followed a joint concert held last year in Rumford when the Dexter High
Band was guest of Stephens! Westbrook was invited to Rumford for a similar exchange
concert on March 26.
The band took part in the Western Maine Music Festival held in May at Sanford.
The annual town concert presented by all the musical organizations of the Rumford
schools was a high spot of the spring term.
The Rumford Music Boosters, an organization of townspeople interested in the
music program of the Rumford schools, aids in sponsoring many of the band's activities.
They participated in fund-raising drives and gave support to band activities.
Donald Rand of the sophomore class, and Donald Young of the freshman, have
efficiently served as band managers.

Catholic Women at their regional meeting in
Mexico. They also delivered selections at the

provided background music for the National Edu-
cation Week assembly, presented by members of

Initiation of twenty-eight members into the S. P.
Q. R. Latin Club was unusually interesting this
year. Each prospective member brought an object
which corresponded to a Latin noun. Unique and
clever articles filled the receptacle in the Latin room.
An elaborate banquet was prepared by the Dorcas
Society of Virginia for the initiation ceremonies on
February 17. Forty-eight members competed in
games of mental skills, forfeits were demanded of
the unsuccessful. The Latin Club auction to which
all Sophomores and Freshmen contributed defrayed
the expenses of the banquet.
The study of mythology will again be the theme
of Latin Club meetings.
