Last year "The Breeze" was published in Stonington, Maine, at the office
rf Penobscot Bay Press, publishers of the Weekly paper, "Island Ad-Vantages".
All advertising sales campaign led by Raymond Crozier '49, made possible a
,arge well-illustrated annual. This year a similarly successful drive Was led by
liithard Nash of the Senior Class.
The color of the 1950 "Breeze" cover was :elected by the high school stu-
Our 1950 "Breeze" is of special interest since it contains a very complete
and accurate listing of members of the Stonington High School Alumni Associa-
Brooklin High School
Your book has a very nice cover. We liked
the poetry section but the print seems blurred
in places. Your pictures were very clear.
Brooksville High School
Yours was a very nice job of printing, but
why was there no literary section? The cover
was pretty and has Worn Well.
Deer Isle High School
The literary and sports sections are very
complete and the informals are very nice.
We did not care for some of the group photos.
North Haven High School
We especially liked your Alumni section,
the letters from graduates were very interest-
ing. The poetry and jokes were nice but we
did not care for the placement of your adver-
"The Mountain Echo"
Blue Hill George Stevens Academy
The pictures are nice. A very nice printing
job, especially on the ads.
Beals High School
A very complete book. The Social section
is very interesting.
Ellsworth High School
The sports section is nice, the action shots
give added interest. It is a very good assort-
ment of pictures.
The print is not very clear. We liked your
Sullivan High School
An interesting sports write-up, also nice
pictures. The print is not too clear.
Bar Harbor High School
We liked your comment on exchanges and
would like to break an old custom and follow
suit. We would like to compliment you on
the excellent activities section.
Barbara Bartlett '51
I believe that the different activities in
which high school students participate are of
great value in their later life. As each person
grows older, he is forced to face reality and
to solve his own problems. If, in his child-
hood he has had no responsibility to speak
of, and has been used to having his work
done for him, he is certain to find things
much beyond his understanding.
In Stonington High School, students have
as their objective in many outside activities
the raising of funds for the Senior Class Trip.
At the food sales, plays, Town Meeting Din-
ner and various other events, students take
over the job of soliciting, selling, learning
play parts and learning how to take orders
from the supervisor of that activity.
Gradually the student finds himself tak-
ing the initiative to go ahead and to think
things out in a practical way. Any practical
suggestion from the student is always given
consideration. These outside interests pro-
vide needed experience in the handling of
funds, care of property, the need of coopera-
tion with others in all work, and the responsi-
bility of answering for all things under his
Students on the "Breeze" board have found
that in going after advertising they have en-
countered many different types of people and
have had to deal with many difficult situa-
tions. Each bit of knowledge gained in this
manner will stay in the person's mind for a
long time. On the trip which most of the
seniors take as a group, they find that there
are many things in this land of ours which
they might never have had the opportunity
to see if it hadn't been for the loyal support
of their friends in Stonington. Each person
who has graduated from our school has felt
at one time or another that he would like to
be back in school for a while. Certainly, the
people realize that practical experience and
knowledge gained from books are very
closely related and should both have a promi-
nent part in the education of children.

Junior Red Cross
Near the close of school in '49, I was given
the privilege of representing Stonington High
School at the junior Red Cross Conference
to be held during the summer, at Wellesley
College from August 2-12.
There were about 140 girls and boys from
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massa-
chusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New
York and New Jersey at the conference.
Twelve instructors and many speakers
made each day a memorable one. Classes
were held as in any school, assemblies with
demonstrations or movies, followed by snack
bar about 10:00 o'clock. Discussion groups
were active until noon. After dinner came
rest period and then classes until 3:00 p. m.
All kinds of activities made the afternoons
and evenings enjoyable. These included soft-
ball, tennis, baseball, volleyball, and swim-
ming, with races in the indoor swimming
pool to add to the fun.
Everyone enjoyed a play in which Sarah
Churchill and jeffrey Lynn starred.
It is easy to imagine how completely they
were surrounded by girls and boys clamoring
Before the conference ended all the par-
ticipants enjoyed a tour to many places of
historical interest, including Lexington, Con-
cord, Bunker Hill Monument, the "U. S. S.
Constitutionf' Lake Waban, and the Louisa
May Alcott House.
Before the girls and boys divided into
groups to return to their home states, many
new friendships had developed which added
lasting interest to a most worthwhile conven-

High School Building
The town of Stonington will soon be pro-
vided with a combined gymnasium and audi-
torium which will furnish adequate space for
important athletic and non-athletic events.
The new building will also provide additional
classrooms for the large increase in school
The first unit to be built will include a
gymnasium, industrial arts ship and two
In this building will take place all impor-
tant school events such as graduation, class
plays, prize speaking, and debates. For bas-
ketball games and the many other events
there will be seating capacity for 400-500
people. This will approximate the capacity
of the gymnasium at Blue Hill.
There will be two classrooms, that will re-
lieve that crowding of students, which is
growing more and more apparent in the pres-
ent school. There will also be a room for
home economics sometime in the future.
Our new school will be built close to the
present one so that the two can be used as a
single school unit.
One of the outstanding values of the new
gym and auditorium is that they will be used
by alumni and adults as well as young people
of grade school and high school age.
The building will be of wood frame con-
struction, and the gym will have curved walls
as they are the most economical to build.

Knowing that driving habits which are
formed by teenagers are carried over into
later life, Stonington High School obtained a
new dual-control, two-door Ford sedan, com-
plete with all accessories, before the opening
of school in September, from the Pittsfield
Motor Sales Company. The arrangement was
made possible through the courtesy of Eaton
Brothers, garage in Deer Isle, through whose
kindness we acquired the car without charge.
The only expense to the school for the entire
ccirrse has been gasoline, oil. grease jobs, in-
srrance, textbooks, and tests.
At the beginning of a course in driver edu-
cation, all pupils are given a complete phys-
ical examination. Not only are the students
taught how to drive a car properly, but they
also learn how to operate an auto in tight
situations, what the rules of the road are, and
a fairly thorough idea of how a car is made.
Initruction is given also in the layout con-
striction cf roads, pupils must be familiar
with the Uniform Vehicle Code.
Tyventy-one students enrolled for the
course during the first semester, of whom
three already had licenses. At the end of the
course, eleven students took the final test and
all passed it. It should be noted that the tests
given were more searching than the state re-
quirements. The road tests were given on
january 16, 1950, by Mr. Pray, the state ex-
aminer from Ellsworth.
In order to be licensed to teach the course,
Mr. Blaine Lymburner took, during the sum-
mer of 1949, an intensive workshop course in
Driver Education, provided by the Univer-
sity of Maine. The course is approved by the
American Automobile Association and the
State Department of Education.
The aim and purpose of the course is not to
make more drivers, but to make better and
more capable ones.

Improving the School Program
NVe acquired an additional teacher this
year, Nlr. Blaine Lyinhurner of Brooksville.
Mr. l.ymhurner teaches the new course in
Driver Education, which is intended to pro-
vide ellicieut, safe, and practical instruction
in the operation of an automobile. Nlany
students have received licenses as a result of
taking this course.
Nlrs. Cllevelands Home Nursing course,
which is sponsored hy the Hancock County
Chapter. American Red Cross. has lxeen com-
bined this year with the Grade 9 "Science
ol' l.ix iugi' class. This course is now required
ol' all freslnnan girls.
N111 NVilson has promoted a valuable
audio-visual program in the junior High
School science and social science classes.
Many sound motion picture Iilms have been
shown, to clarify textbook materials. The
films have been used iu actual class Work.
Volleyhall was introduced last fall as a new
sport that soon may have varsity status.
Games were played with Brooklin and Blue
Hill, and although Il. S. lost all its games,
considerable interest was developed. It is
understood that attempts will he made to
form a volleyhall league next year.
An i'Open llousel' program was held last
fall to inform parents of the progress in vari-
ous classes. This time selected students as
well as teachers took part in the program to
help with exhihits and demonstrations. Re-
freshments were served in the school lunch
room at the close ol' the program.
Driver Training Class - Fall Semester
Stonington High School was the first
school in this section to begin its magazine
sales campaign. Mr. Sprague gave us a lively
talk and divided the entire High School into
two teams, the "Red,' and the "Blue", The
"Red" team included the Seventh ,Grade,
Freshmen, and juniors. The Eighth Grade,
Sophomores, and Seniors formed the "Blue',
team. In the exciting race that followed, the
Blue team was victorious. A profit of 8101.89
was made on the contest.
A visitor to the High School during the
week of September 19-23 might have Won-
dered at the deep thought that puckered the
brows of the Sophomores. It was getting
near the time for them to initiate Grade
Seven into full high school membership.
Donald MacKay was master of ceremonies
on the fatal 23rd of September. Traditional
stunts were performed by the thirty-five
quaking new students, to the great delight of
All were ready for the sandwiches and
punch and the dancing which followed.

stiflly starched aprons. The Seniors were

other things which they had solicited from

The girls showed versatility in type of
cheering displayed. "Cartwheels'l had no
terror for them.
They showed a high spirit and energy all
season, and hope that their efforts helped a
little in bringing the "Rockets,' to the semi-
finals of the H. C. S. S. A. Tournament.
A hum of activity constantly growing
louder, crepe paper in many gay colors, the
bustle of arranging Laoics, tubs and tacks
ushered in our Thanksgiving Festival.
It was all there: cooked foods, fancy arti-
cles, lunch counter, and raflles Watched over

men. The Eighth Grade pleased their cus-
tomers by selling them the chance to fish

was the museum which was constructed by
the Seventh Grade.
People came and went until nearly every-
thing was gone and it was time to close.
Tables were taken down and things put away
in preparation for the dance that would be-
gin a few hours later.
Nearly all classes added good sums to the
class treasury. to be used for future class

D. A. R. Pilgrim
Each year the teachers and students in
high schools all over the state choose a girl
from the Senior Class to be the representa-
tive of her school in the D. A. R. Pilgrimage.
The National Society of the Daughters of
the American Revolution sponsors a member-
ship drive each year. The candidates are
chosen on the basis of Service, Dependabil-
ity, Patriotism, and Leadership. The local
chapters of the D. A. B. send out ques-
tionaires to the candidates which are re-
turned and send in to the Regent Qhead of the
State chapterl. The girl submitting the best
paper is honored at the State Convention,

To decorate the Legion Hall for their an-

cedar backgrounds with occasional roses to
add bits of gay colors.
Music for dancing was provided by Cleve-
laudis Orchestra. As the first waltz began.
everyone waited more and more impatiently
for the highlight of the evening.
Then it came! The three finalists in the
contest to choose a Prom "Queen,', Barbara
Bartlett, Letha Barbour, and Patsy Filield,
took their places by the orchestra platform.
Richard Nash presented each girl with a cor-
sage, a gift of the junior Class. Geraldine
Davis, who was last yearis "Queen,', then
placed the pretty white crown on the head
of the new queen, Letha Barbour.
The Grand March followed, led by the
"Queeu,' and Class President Richard Nash.
Then everyone enjoyed a happy evening
Our classes became more and more rest-
less in December. The Christmas trees and
gay decorations distracted our attention. We
were eagerly awaiting the afternoon when
we could turn on our audio-visual uradioi'
and listen to the student body of S. H. S. put
on its Christmas program.
The script was about Christmases in other
lands such as Palestine, England, and the

University oi Maine
On Saturday, April 29th, twenty students,
accompanied by Principal and Mrs. Thurldw
Pitts, attended the "Open House" program at
the University of Maine.
Everyone returned with a much better idea
of what a college is like. There was a chance
to see samples of the work in different de-
partments of the colleges of Agriculture, Arts
visited. The girls enjoyed very much a gym-
nastic exhibition by girls in the physical edu-
There was also time to see a track meet

Another year has rolled around and here
it is time for a full grown owlet to bring you
greetings and the up-to-date events.
Having large eyes, and highly developed
ears, I see and hear a lot that most people
would know little or nothing about. Since
my plumage is soft, I travel noiselessly and
surprise my prey with considerable ease.
Why just the other day I saw Alvernon
Holland, otherwise known in my opinion as
"Romeo", giving Olive Barter the rush. I
don't know what else you would call it when
he looks at her-in that knowing way-tell-
ing her with his eyes that he thinks a lot of her,
even though he does chase the other girls
a little too much. They even had the story
going around that Olive spoiled Alvernonis
aim in the Penobscot basketball game. Will
someone kindly donate a picture of Olive to
post above the S. H. S. basket before next
As I was peeping around, watching this
one and that, I saw Mrs. Smith add five new
names to her registration book. M-m-m- well,
I see they are Olive Barter and Collie Mc-
Donald of Isle au Haut, Wallace Webb and
Kenneth Brimigion of Portland, and Maurice
Robbins of Deer Isle. I hope they will like
our high school and stay with us. Every little
owl in our family is appreciated.
Do I hear music coming from the new
piano in Mr. VVilson,s room or is it my over-
worked nerves hooting themselves to sleep.
No, lim sure it's the piano. I guess Iill do
a little snooping and see whatis cookini. Well,
bless my sharp ears. Am I glad I heard that
music! I do believe Iill hook my talons on
the back of the piano chair and get ac-
quainted with her. They say that a pretty girl
is like a melody and by gosh they are so right!
She tells me her name is Joyce Webster, the
new music teacher. She also says that she
is single. Wahoo! Oh, there I go again. Iive
just got to stop that slang talk that Helen
Steele and Erlene Pray taught me or one of
these days Mr. Pitts will catch me and give
me a slapping and a "Help Wanted" sign.
Speaking of winners, the junior Class must
have made coach Mrs. Smith very pleased at
junior Speaking. Natalie Rice,s version of
"Mary Ellenis Starv and the pretended puppy
was very well done. Barbara Bartlett pre-
sented a very impressive story about "Bobby
Unwelcomen. Barbara received 3rd prize.
Ruth Alley presented a very impressive story
of "Dog of Warn. She got a well deserved
2nd prize. Joanne Barbour received lst prize
for her speech, "Sing me to Sleep". Elwell
Shepard, Lorraine Morey, Donald Williams
and Loretta Lunt also participated in the
finals and offered stiff competition for the
winners. They were all awarded participation
medals. I wonder if I could have flown off
with lst prize? I would have told my ancient
history and about my Uncle Luie. I bet they
would like to know about him too. My, but
he was a grand owl!
Well, here I am perched on Mr. Lym-
burner's shoulder. He has just given some
last minute instructions to "Pee Wee" Walker
before she attempts to start off for the first
time in the shiny new Ford.
"Ouchl Oh! Hoot!" My poor wings sure
got a flapping that time. Oh, well I guess
I can't blame anyone but myself for getting
into such dangerous places as this. And yet
I,m sure the cover of their book stated plainly
that this was supposed to be "Sportsmanlike
Drivingv. Provoking isn't it?
Early one morning as I was flying around
trying to find some new excitement, I heard
a strange voice speaking within the walls of
Mr. Wilson's room. I flew quickly over and
crept in the door. Ah-hal who is this tall
handsome man speaking to this group of boys?
What is he saying? All the boys are blushing
like girls. VVait a minute! Eddie Holland is
getting up and addressing him as Mr. Mico-
pulous. It seems as if Eddie wants to ask him
a question about something. Oh, well, I know
who this gentleman is. I remember Mr. Smith,
our superintendent, speaking of him as the
lecturer on social, public, and personal rela-
tions. Our high school attended these lectures
100'Zr and everyone was very interested. I
guess I will make it 101921 by going to the
Bless my intelligent little brain. What is
this going on in Mrs. Smith's English class
room? A trial and a murder trial at that! Be
quiet Betty Gross, you annoy me with your
constant chatter. Whatis that, what did you
say, Betty? This is the Sander trial? Well,
tell me more. Oh, Herbert has just pounded
the gavel and threatened to kick me out if I
don't stop talking to Betty. After all, he is
the judge at this trial. Dickie Nash and Patsy
Fifield are in it thick and heavy with cross-
examining. Betty tells me they are the
District Attorney and Defense Lawyer. VVell,
I guess they are pretty hootingly good at it
too. This is just too much for my young mind
to follow. I'd better fly away from here be-
fore they get me involved. I don't like that
evil glint in Dickie's eye. He's desperate!
One night during basketball season I braved
the cold and went to the "Red Barn? to a
basketball game. l decided I could endure
one game if Miss Morey could after teaching
school all day. The hall was full, balcony
and all, but I was determined to see the game.
I hooked my talons onto a balcony rail an.!
prepared to hoot for good ol' S. H. S., but
I guess I didn't have to. A few of the girls
were yelling to the top of their lungs. Then
I heard someone yell "Swish, swish, junie,
swishf' I thought for one startling minute
they had seen me and were telling me in a
polite way to get out or junie would see to
it that I did. I almost flew away but then I
thought to myself, "That is no way to talk to
me. I am going to stay right here and hoot
for S. H. S." Then to my surprise I saw that
"Swish" seemed to be a magic word, and
every time they said it the S. H. S. team made
a basket. So, I joined in with the rest yelling
"swish!" Thanks to my added "Swish" they
won the game.
While I was out flying around in the corri-
dor I heard something that perked up my
ears. "Oohah, my love, he is stealing your
heart with that golden tongue of his". VVell,
well, well, I guess this is the place where I
belong. I peered in through the keyhole and
was I aghast! Natalie Rice was in Elwell
Shepard's arms! What revolting things are
going on in that room? And Ruth Alley is
standing there as if she was enjoying herself.
I thought Ruthie was Elwellis little Qahemj
shall we say "Lovebird"? And there is Miss
Rand of all people! Oh, what is she holding?
A book? I canit be mistaken, but yes, it isg
she is rehearsing the junior Class Play, "The
Twig of Thornv. I guess even owls can get
their reins crossed once in awhile. "Good
One fine day this week I thought I'd visit
the second year French Class. I have to pay
those little "Frenchies" a visit once in a while
to keep them in order. You might know that
I'd pick an exciting day. Mrs. Smith asked
Donald Williams to open the window a little
for ventilation. That poor young owl started
to stand up when rip---he was the one receiv-
ing all the ventilation! I couldn't help hoot-
ing at the look of astonishment when he
glanced down and found the tear in his pants!
I remember an old story Mammy Owl used
to tell us about a certain preacher who used
to put a "Lifesaver,' under his tongue when
he preached, so he wouldn't talk too long.
It seems that when the "Lifesaver" was all
gone it was time to stop. Well, I thought I'd
take the advice and do the same thing so I
wouldn't get to a jootin' and never stop. Since
I never eat "Lifesavers', I didn't know just
what to expect. Mine has lasted and lasted
and it is as big now as it was when I put
it in my beak. I flew over to mammy owl and
asked her how much longer it was good for.
Well! How was I to know a "Lifesaver" from

Stonington at 4:30 A. M. Sunday, April
23, and Stonington at 9:30 P. M. Sunday,
April 30--and between those hours eight
wonderful days in Washington, D. C., and
New York City, and Boston. Our trip proved
to be even better and more enjoyable than
our fondest dreams.
Sunday dawned fair and bright and we
were grateful for a nice morning to start our
journey. Everett Billings and Wendall Davis
"rounded upv the group, consisting of Betty
Cross, Erlene Pray, Letha Barbour, Helen
Steele, Dick Nash, Herbert Spencer, Donald
Cripps, Raymond Buckminster, and Miss
Morey as chaperone. NVe were in Bangor in
plenty of time to secure our train tickets, ride
over to see the ruins of the Windsor Hotel,
and to be among the first to board the train
so that we might all be together in the same
coach. At 7:35 A. M. we were on the way to
Portland where we arrived at 10:55. Lunches
were brought out and did those sandwiches
taste good! At 2:15 we arrived in Boston,
secured taxis and crossed to the South Station,
where at 3 P. M. we left on the 'fPatriot,' for
the nation's capital. By this time it was rain-
ing lightly, but since we would be on the
train all day, it failed to dampen our spirits.
At 6:00 P. M. we made our way into the
dining car where many of us enjoyed our
first meal in a train diner. At long last the
call came "Next stop is NVashington-WVash-
ington nextf, We weren't sorry to hear that.
At 11:45 P. M. we arrived at Union Station.
Oh, maybe our hats werenit on quite such
a perky angle, and maybe we had hard work
to prevent yawning, but we tried to look like
seasoned travelers as we walked across the
square to Hotel Stratford. We registered as
speedily as possible, found that our rooms
were all on the same floor, bade one another
a sleepy "Goodnight-see you at 6:30," and
we were off to bed.
The next morning we had breakfast at 7:15
at Child's Restaurant. Our first point of inter-
est was the Bureau of Printing and Engrav-
ing. We watched the printers and their assist-
ants as they printed sheets of paper currency,
watched the ladies who so competently ex-
amined the bills for defects, we saw the
sheets being counted and then wheeled away.
Stamps and bonds are also printed there.
Next we went to the handsome Congres-
sional Library. It is instinctive for visitors
to stop on the wide marble stairway and
glance about at the dignified beauty of the
building. After taking a peep at the original
Declaration of Independence, at the Con-
stitution and Bill of Rights, at a rough draft
of Lincolnis Gettysburg Address, and many
other historical documents, we saw a display
of early pictures of Washington now being
assembled in honor of the cityis Sesquicenten-
The U. S. Supreme Court was our next
stop. This beautiful building, completed
clurmg Hooseveltis administration, is just
:cross from the Capitol.
The Capitcil itself was next on our itinerary.
We joined a tour and were escorted through
the building by a very attractive guide who
lectured as we went from one section to the
next. The old Supreme Court room, Statuary
Hall, the Senate and House of Representa-
tives, the Dome, the worldis longest corridor,
the President's Room, came in for their share
of our attention. The Capitol located at the
end of Pennsylvania Avenue, surrounded by
its plaza and park, is beautiful to behold,
especially at night when the dome is beauti-
After a rest period of an hour at the Hotel
Stratford and luncheon at the Marlboro, we
went to see the White House, which is now
undergoing extensive repairs. Although We
could not see the interior, we walked around
the building so that we might see the exterior
from all sides. Opposite the North Portico
were two large round beds of bright pink
hyacinths in full bloom on the lawn. VVe
rode over to the jefferson Memorial, walked
around the Tidal Basin to the Lincoln Memo-
rial, followed the path by the reflecting pool
up to the Washington Monument, the View
from which is superb. If you don't like the
elevator, you can always climb the stairs, all
898 of them! Most of our group did sol We
did a little souvenir hunting there in a near-
by shop. By then we were ready to return
to the hotel to freshen up because we were
going to Baltimore for the evening.
We hear much about "Southern Hospi-
tality". I had never had the pleasure of sam-
pling it until we went out to Baltimore to
have dinner and spend the evening with
Dickie Nash's Aunt Iessie and Uncle Paul.
Now if that visit was a fair sample of south-
ern hospitality, then I am convinced that it
is all that it is said to be. From the moment
we enteredthe door, where we were greeted
by Dick and Herbert who had gone out
earlier in the afternoon, until we boarded the
bus to return to Washington, we were made
to feel "at home" and treated royally. And
did I say we were invited to dinner? I should
have said to a banquet, for that was what
we had. just to make your mouths water,
I'll give the menu-roast turkey, mashed
potato, dressing, gravy, green peas, glazed
sweet potatoes, the tastiest cold slaw, cran-
berry relish, celery, hot yeast rolls, mince pie,
lemon meringue pie, custard pie, coffee, tea,
hot chocolate, or milk. Sounds good? It
surely was, and needless to say we ate until
our "tummies" could hold no more. While
the seniors went out to some amusement parks
and a race track, Miss Morey stayed to visit
with Dickis Aunts fanother having come in
to spend the eveningj. The combination of
southern drawl and clipped Maine word end-
ings made an interesting chat. After a most
pleasant evening, we were presented with
a box of Martha Washington chocolates to
eat on the train and were escorted to the bus
terminal by Mr. Campbell and a friend. I
believe that we shall always think of that visit
to Baltimore with a real sense of appreciation
of southern hospitality.
Tuesday morning at 8:45 we were out to
Smithsonian Institute. A most interesting and
educational two hours was spent there. The
balcony with its story of the progress in
medicine, the cases of models gowned in
dresses worn by the Presidents' ladies, the
coin collection, the display of Army and Navy
uniforms of different wars, the government
military medals, the old bicycles, carriages.
automobiles, locomotives, steamboats, etc.
held us almost spellbound. And guns, what
a collection! We also roamed through the
building which housed the various types of
An exciting feature of the morning was the
FBI Tour in the Department of justice build-
ing. This should not be missed by any capital
visiicr. Their laboratory and legal library are
among the finest in the world. The shooting
demonstration by an FBI man emphasized
the uselessness of trying to get away from
such marksmanship as theirs.
Tuesday afternoon we took a four-hour
tour of Alexandria, Arlington and Mt. Vernon.
This tour never fails to please the senior
groups. We crossed the beautiful Arlington
Memorial Bridge, drove through the National
cemetery and close to the grave of Gen. John
Pershing. He rests on a knoll at the head of
World War I veterans in a spot that he him-
self selected. We were fortunate in reaching
the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in time
to see the changing of guards, which is done
in a brief but very impressive manner every
two hours. We visited the pure white marble
Amphitheater which is the scene of Memorial
Day services. We drove past many historic
places-the Lee mansion, Christ Church
where both VVashington and Lee worshipped,
the first public school founded by George
Washington and still being used as a primary
school, a cobblestone street on which many
houses still bear the plaque which indicated
that their owners belonged to a particular
fire department and merited help in case of
fire. We drove all around the Pentagon build-
ing, the world's largest office building, each
side of which is U5 mile long. We passed
the National Airport and noticed that Tru-
manis plane, the ulndependencev, was on the
field. Our second stop was at Mt. Vernon,
the beloved home of George Washington.
Situated on a hill which slopes gently to the
Potomac River, this is truly a delightful spot.
As one sits on the long front porch and gazes
across the fields and lawns, it isnit hard to
imagine the scene as Washington himself
liked to picture it-Home, prosperous farm,
family gatherings, slaves playing and singing
after their dayis work-the place where he
longed to be. Every foot of ground and every
dogwood tree was precious to him. An hour
spent there, and we were again on our way,
this time for our third and last stop-the
Masonic Washington Memorial, in one room
of which is the World's largest Persian rug.
Its soft, lovely colors are blended perfectly,
but as the room lights are changed the reds
and the blues seem to rise right out of the
rug, making it appear almost as a magic car-
pet. This building has no steel in its con-
struction, the entire weight being supported
by eight huge marble pillars.
Capital Theater with its movie and vaude-
ville was the attraction of the evening, and
it was our pleasure to see and hear Xavier
Cugat and his orchestra.
On Wednesday morning we visited the
Botanic Gardens and discovered that it was
just between seasons, and since the spring
was late, there were very few flowers in
bloom. However, the tropical garden is al-
ways a delightful spot and the orchid house
boasted quite a few varieties of blooms.
Since we didnit want to leave Washington
without seeing any of its stores, we spent
about three hours after lunch visiting the
various shops and five and ten cent stores.
The latter part of the afternoon was spent
in the Hotel Ambassador swimming pool.
That was a great treat and everyone came
back refreshed and uraring to gov. So we had
dinner and then went to see Van johnson in
"Battleground',, a very entertaining war movie.
We arose at 5 A. M. Thursday and were
soon on our way to New York, arriving there
at 12:40. We registered at Hotel Dixie. That
afternoon some attended a ball game, some a
show, and some of us attended two shows!
In the evening came Madison Square Garden
and that great spectacle, the Barnum Bailey,
Ringling Bros. Circus. What a treat! There
were trained bears, horses, elephants, ponies,
and dogs. There were long distance spring-
board leapers over the backs of massed ele-
phants, daring aerialists, bareback riders,
trapeze artists, clown pranksters, jugglers ani
high Wir: hazardists. The closing display was
a combination of pageantry, song and dance
features called "jungle Drums".
Friday we took a combined tour of down-
town New York, Chinatown, and the Statue
of Liberty. We went from the extremes of
Wall Street to the Boweryg passed City Hall
and Foley Square where thousands of stu-
dents were on strike, visited a Chinatown
Mission, a tiny Post Office C only 6' by 8' Q,
and finally were taken to Battery Park for
our boat ride to Bedloe's Island. An hour
there gave everyone an opportunity to climb
the stairs into the head of the Statue of
Liberty, get refreshments of hot dogs and
"coke", and watch a big steamer slowly wend-
ing her way out of the harbor.
That afternoon was devoted to the thrill
of riding by elevator to the 102nd floor of the
Empire State Building! We descended to the
eighty-sixth floor, visited the souvenir shop,
the restaurant, and the outside observation
platform. Then we were on our way again.
We walked along Fifth Avenue, stopping here
and there to window shop. We had consider-
able difficulty in hailing a taxi in the rushing
Radio City Music Hall with all its beauty
and comfort was our evening attraction. The
entire show was excellent, but the orchestra
and the precision dancers pleased our group
above all else.
No visitor to New York escapes the feeling
of wonder and awe when first he sees the
"Great White Way", and so it was with those
of us who had never before seen Times
Square with its myriad electric signs so
brilliantly lighting the area.
Saturday morning we left New York for
Boston where we arrived at 12:50. After
registering at Hotel Bradford, we went to
"O Sole Mio" for dinner. The minestromi
soup and Italian spaghetti and meat balls
were eaten with great relish. Then came
111: choice of desserts. The waiter received
Herbert's order for lemon meringue pie with
chocolate ice cream with a rather surprisei
expresgicn, and when Herbert added "and
a large coke" the poor waiter said nothing al-
though he looked rather flabbergasted. Re-
turning with the orders, he took the plate
containing the lemon pie and chocolate ice
cream in one hand and the coke in the other,
glanced around the table and asked "And
who ordered this queer combination?" As
we ate we reminisced about the many humor-
ous incidents of the trip, and Dickie's story
of the trip by subway to Yankee Stadium,
of their arrival at the bus terminal entrance
to our hotel--well, the whole story filled us
with such merrirnent that the meal will long
We decided on a light supper at the Met
Snack Bar, but I question how "light', it was,
for some of those three-tier sandwiches and
three-Havor ice cream banana splits didn,t
give the appearance of being too lightl But
they were goodl After satisfying our appe-
tites, we saw Marlene Dietrich in "Stage
F right" at the Metropolitan.
We had our Sunday breakfast at the North
Station, and three quarters of an hour before
train time we line up before the track gate
only to find that the 9:10 train to Portland
had already left. We had been given infor-
mation that the trains left on regular train
time. To us that did not mean daylight
saving time-but to the trains it did. Our
next best bet was to take the 10:58 bus on
which we used our train tickets, and we were
in Bangor at 7:50 P. M. where Everett and
Wendall were waiting to take us home.
When asked if they enjoyed the trip as
much as they had anticipated, the Seniors
agreed that they enjoyed it even more than
they had expected. That, Folks, is a resume
of the trip that you helped to make possible,
and for which the Class of 1950 wishes to
express sincere appreciation and thanks.

My Summer Home
My summer house is a remodeled aircraft
carrier. It measures about 750 feet in length
and its beam is 100 feet. It draws 20 feet of
In the middle of the flight deck near the
island, is a regulation football field. Below
decks I have plenty of footballs and other
On the "after deck" between the football
field and the stern is another grassy section
fthe football field is covered with grassj.
Here are planted shrubs, flowers, bushes, and
small trees. It is my garden, where I spend
Between the football field and the bow is
the "sun-deck", where I spend my mornings.
In the middle of the sun deck is a large swim-
ming pool, with a springboard at one end. It
is supplied with fresh water from the distilling
machines below. For those who like salt-
water swimming when the boat is not moving
you can lower a platform to within one foot
of the water, and dive off this.
Below the flight deck, on the hangar deck,
are two regulation basketball courts, a dance
hall, five bowling alleys, a library, ten ping
pong tables, a gymnasium which is separate
from the basketball courts, and a lot of empty
space for doing anything you like.
On the third deck are the rooms for my
guests, and in the middle of the deck there
is a dining room and a soda fountain. The
soda fountain is used mainly for social gather-
ings however, for all the rooms have faucets
out of which run milkshakes, sodas, and soft
Below there is the necessary machinery to
keep the boat running. The laundry, the
kitchen, the crews quarters and the ship's
doctor are also here.
In the summer I like nothing better than
taking fifty or a hundred of my friends and
just cruise around. The only drawback is that
I have to spend one or two million dollars
every six or seven years to dredge out East
Penobscot Bay so I can bring my ship into

One day I decided to go fishing. I went
out into the backyard to dig some worms. I
dug until I was so tired that I couldn't dig
any more and I hadn't found a single worm.
But, I didn't give up that easily! One of my
friends came down the road. I hailed him
and told him that I had discovered that there
was gold on my land and if he helped me
dig for it I would share it with him. He dug
until he was worn out and then he went off.
I told him to come back when he had rested
but he didnit want to. I got two more boys
working for me by telling them about the
gold and still I got no worms. By that time
we had dug fifteen feet under ground and
I decided that there were no worms there.
I went to another spot and I found some
worms. I went fishing but didnit catch any
We had the hole cemented and cleaned
and used it for a well.

One evening after returning from work at
our offices in the warehouse, Barbara and I
suddenly realized we had left our wallets
behind with all of our wages. We grabbed
a bite to eat at our boarding house and then
ran to catch the bus for the waterfront. We
dreaded returning at dusk because there was
always a gang of hoodlums prowling around
A drizzling rain had started and the wind
was beginning to howl. We took our Hash-
lights from our raincoat pockets and tried
to pierce the gloom of the night. We fumbled
around the side of the building until we found
the door. Upon trying the door we discovered
to our amazement it was open. As We crept
in, the door creaked sharply. We hesitated
and then edged slowly forward.
Finally, after what seemed an eternity, we
found ourselves in what seemed to be an
unfamiliar part of the warehouse. Our flash-
lights made the shadows of the different
sizes and shapes of boxes dance weirdly
against the bare walls. "Joanne',l It was
Barbara calling my name. I answered as
calmly as I could. She informed me that her
flashlight was going to go out very shortly.
I also had a startling feeling that mine was
going to fade also. In what seemed only
seconds, Barbara and I were left alone in the
opaque blackness of the night.
Barbara and I were almost hysterical with
fear. I groped uncertainly around the wall
for a light switch. My hand struck the switch
button and to my overwhelming surprise the
lights did not go on!
"For heavens sake where are we?,' asked
Barbara. I could not give her any information
as to our whereabouts. I sat down on the
cold cement floor and tried to figure out
where we were.
The rain had stopped outside and the moon
was coming out. Suddenly a booming, angry
voice pierced the obscure atmosphere which
sent shivers up our spines. "What do you
think you are doing anyway?" I tried to
answer but my voice only came out a hoarse
whisper. Barbara, who was never at loss for
words soon found her voice and said in a
saucy tone, "I might ask the same of youfw
"Is that you, Miss Bartlett? came a surprised
cry. "Yes, of course it's me, and Joanne is
here, too, for your information? I kept behind
Barbara as she stepped out into the open.
"VVho are youfy' she asked. "Who am I" came
the surprised reply. "Well, I should hope I
was Mr. Peck your bossu. "Mr. Peck! Bosslv
we both cried! "VVe,ll be fired for sure now
after those saucy things I said,', whispered
Barbara into my ear. "Well, girls what are
you doing down here after dark?" demanded
Mr. Peck. "We came after our wallets and
all our pay that was in themf' I said. Mr.
Peck laughed a long hearty laugh while Bar-
bara and I exchanged puzzled glances. "Oh,
those! I sent them to your boarding house
by special delivery right after you left. I just
came back to lock the door. I forgot it when
I leftf' -

Scared To Death
One hot summer day last year, a group of
us girls went for a walk. We headed for
We were onto the wood road when we
saw a house. Joanne spoke up, "I know who
"Who?v asked Rose.
"A half-witted manf said Joanne.
Well, we discussed it and finally decided
to explore it. We had just gotten in when
we heard a thud, then another thud. Each
time it got louder until finally we saw a man
come around the corner with a huge log. He
was dropping the end at each step because
it was so heavy. We quietly slipped into
another room where we saw a big pile of
logs. We then knew the old man would
bring the wood into the room, so each of us,
scared to death, hunted for a hiding place.
I darted behind the wood pile. There was
Priscilla. I jumped on top of a sack in a
corner and there was Joanne. Everybody had
had found a place except me.
I heard the man coming: thud, thud,
thud, each getting louder as he drew nearer.
Just then my foot fell into a hole in the floor.
I tugged and tugged but it wouldn't come out.
At that very moment the old man came
around the door. I wished I could faint but
"What are you doing here?" he shouted
angrily. "Don,t you know I live here?v
"Yes,', I replied weakly, "but-but, well I
just--well, I was just wondering who lived
heref' speaking faintly. "Please don't hurt
me, mister," I pleaded.
"Did you come alonef' he yelled.
"Y-yesf, I stuttered, not wanting to tell
him about the others.
He pulled my foot loose, tied, gagged me
:ml 1h"e'.v mg into ill: cc,rner on top of
joanne. She made a grunting noise, but he
didn't hear her.
"You'll stay there until I get ready to move
you," he said.
As he said this, he walked out the door
after more wood. The girls lost no time in
getting me loose. We ran as fast as our feet
would go and never went 'round there again.

I-luman Interest Notes On
The Thanksgiving Festival
As I was standing at the door of the "Red
Bam" on the day of the Thanksgiving Festi-
val, I had a good chance to observe many
people. I was selling admission tickets.
Some seventh grade children were outside
the door selling tickets to their "Museum',.
As the people came in from outside, they
passed me the museum tickets and then I had
to explain what those tickets were for and
that they had to pay a ten-cent admission
fee to get into the "Barn", A most disgusted
look would come over their faces, but they
all paid without hesitation.
Later in the "Festival" I was watching
people fish in the "Fish Pool". A boy came
up, paid his ten cents, and started fishing.
In a few minutes he got a piece of wood
with a number on it. He was given a present.
As he ripped off the wrapper, the scent of
bath powder could be smelled. The boy was
cross to think he had bath powder-but not
quite as disgusted as when he pulled the top
off the box which was upside down. With
a disgusted look, he went to his mother and
gave the empty box to her.
Donald Cripps '51
A crowded public place is the best spot
to meet an outstanding person. I met such
a person Friday afternoon at the Thanks-
The person of whom I am speaking is a
woman of about sixty-Eve. She has enough
money so that she will never have to worry,
but she usually is very mean about spending
it. She has few clothes and a house badly
in need of repair.
As she went from table to table buying
nothing, she looked like the unhappiest per-
son in the world. Then as the little children
came in, she watched them carefully as their
eyes lighted when they bought a "nickel's
worth" of candy. But presently she noticed
three small children looking at the lunch
counter with hungry faces and bright, watch-
ful eyes. She presently knew that they didn't
have any money and she suddenly felt
ashamed of herself. Quickly reaching into
her pocketbook, she pulled out three one
dollar bills and gave one to each of the child-
ren. The look on the children's faces was
worth many dollar bills. And the old lady
went home looking younger than she had in
Richard Nash '50
Last Friday we had our Thanksgiving Festi-
val. I was on the selling committee and it
was very amusing to watch some of the child-
ren buy things.
As I was standing there, something attracted
my attention. It was a little boy. By his
clothes, he had come from a poor family.
He had five cents and was trying to find a gift
for his mother.
After a while he came over to my end
of the table. I think I would have given him
anything he asked for, but I had no right to
do that. Then he picked up a plate and
bought it. His face lighted up as he showed
the rest of the children what he had bought
for his mother.
Ruth Alley '51
As I sat at my table at the Thanksgiving
Festival, I watched for some interesting inci-
dent to write about. But the crowd seemed
to fade when an old friend of mine came
over and asked if he could be of any help to
I knew that "Clam', was not at all bashful
and that he would be apt to ask more people
to buy tickets, so I told him to go ahead.
Sccn Wayne Spofford came to assist him.
In fifteen minutes, those two helpful people

At the Festival, little Paul Creenlaw was
just a little bit afraid of all the people around
him. Miss Morey remedied that situation by
robbing the Seniors of a molasses "ginger-
bread mani' which she gave to him. At first
he wasn't going to take it, but all of a sudden
a broad grin appeared and a hand reached
out for the cookie.

On A Country Road
It was a cool, dark summer evening when
I decided I would take a little walk. While
ambling along at a moderate pace, I stumbled
onto an old road in the Woods.
"Guess I'll follow this,', I muttered to my-
With no companion, I began to get a little
Iid never known a night could be so deathly
An owl broke the silence with a mournful
Because I was really jumpy then, I began
to walk faster and faster. Suddenly I tripped
on a root and went flat on my face. I was so
startled that I just lay there a few seconds.
Then to my horror I felt something cold and
clammy on my leg. With a gasp of fright
I reached out, all ready to fight a tiger. My
shaking hands came in contact with the
monster-an innocent little frog!
I jumped up and ran like mad for home.
Bushes cracked as animals scurried out of my
Way. Bats darted among the trees. I imag-
ined all sorts of ghosts after me all the way
I can still hear my shrieks echoing through
the hills like phantom voices whispering to
Since then I have taken pains to invite
my friends to accompany me on my evening

The first time I tried to ski was last winter,
in an orchard, on a slope behind my cousin's
house. There we found four or five friends
who could already ski. I had no skis so one
of them loaned me his. At first I had difficulty
getting the skis on. I could get one on, but
when I tried to don the other, I'd start down
hill. Finally someone stood on the back of
the skis to hold me there while I put them
on. I started down the slope, I looked up
suddenly to see, just ahead of me, an apple
tree. I didnit know how to turn, so all I could
do was hope I wouldn't hit it. Luckily a good
trail had been worn and the skis automatically
stayed in the tracks. My skis got into two
opposite tracks at the end of the field. Each
ski went in a different direction-an unhappy
ending to my first attempt. V
A while later, I decided to try the ski jump,
which was about four feet high. 'When I
came to the jump, the first time one of my
skis went off over the side. The second time
I went over the jump, but I didn't land in
the usual way! The third try I made it over
the ski jump all right. My trouble started
at the end of the field. I couldnit stop, so I
ended in a patch of blackberry bushes. Ski-
ing isnit easy, but it is exciting and great fun.

At The Basketball Game
"VVhat's that man with the whistle' doing
out there on the floor?" asked a wide-eyed
girl, looking puzzled.
"He's the referee, and they're going to
start the game now,', he replied shortly, with-
out looking up.
If 113 Llfefve Cllly' one player in the
middle, I thought there were two teams on
"There are, but only one person can play
in the center, so the visiting team starts,"
replied the escort.
"Well, whatis everybody making such a
noise for? Did somebody get hurt?" This
interested member of the audience is trying
in vain to gather some information.
"No, nobody got hurtl Our team made a
basket!" His patience is wearing thin.
"Oh-why is the man blowing the whistle
and holding up his fingers?"
"Because one of the players charged another
fellow and they call that a foul-and now let
me see the rest of this game in peace!"

Our Part In The Game
When Vinalhaven was playing baseball
with Stonington one bright September after-
noon, the pupils of Stonington High School
were let out in activity period to watch the
janet, Helen, Rebecca and I were sitting
over on the rocks by the baseball field, de-
vouring a bag of plums which Helen had so
thoughtfully brought to school that morning.
"Helen, can I have another plum?" asked
"Guess so,', murmured Helen, intent on
watching a certain Vinalhaven player coach
"You,re outli' yelled the ump.
"Heyl" bellowed someone, "how much are
you paying that ump?,' That burst was from
a Stonington fan, as you may have guessed,
for one of our boys had just been called out
Finally our team was up at bat again. Up
"Oh, boy!" she screamed, "come on Edward,
oh, that's wonderfulf' Incidently, our hero
was on third base.
After a while Stonington took the field.
Someone hit a grounder and our hero failed
to catch it, allowing a base hit. janet jumped
up again and hollered-
"Edward, you foollv Isn't it odd how
women change their minds so quickly?
The game ended, and Stonington was de-
feated, but I guess we contributed our part
to the game.

"The Log Cabin Club"
Upon entering the schoolhouse Thursday
morning, I heard the hum of excited voices
coming from the main room. I wasted no
time in finding out what was going on.
"Say, Raymond," I hollered, to get my voice
above the noise, "what's causing all the com-
"Let me tell youl' piped Helen, from the
center of the crowd. "Herbert and Dick were
out walking through the woods, when they
discovered an old log cabin that they thought
would make a wonderful club house."
"It's near a small pond where we can swim
in the summer and skate in the winterf,
This bit of information was given by Letha,
whose only thoughts are of swimming and
"We thought it would be nice to have a
group get together and Hx the place all over,"
murmured Donald, wishing that he were
sitting beside Letha.
It was evident that they all wanted to iix
the cabin for a club house.
At 9:00 Saturday morning, everyone met at
the schoolhouse with tools, rags, brooms-all
the necessary paraphenalia for cleaning
house. Herbert and Dick led the way through
the woods, with our chaperon, Mrs. Smith,
stumbling along faithfully behind us.
By Saturday afternoon we had the place
well cleaned. We had some furniture, but
not enough to accommodate all the club.
While we were pondering what to do, a knock
came at the door. Some of the townspeople
had brought their old furniture, couches, and
even a stove. Now we were all ready to en-
Oh, but it was cozy when we were all
grouped around the Hre, roasting mashmal-
Dark wine-colored curtains hung at the

on the couch was Patsy, dreaming of the
time when- she would have a house of her
Betty was musing, too, wondering what
her future husband was going to look like.
She was brought back to the present by the
sight of her poor burnt-up marshmallow,
dangling dolefully on the end of her stick.
It was her last marshmallow, too!
In the next room the pool table, ping-pong
sets and other games had been pushed back,
and there were couples dancing to the music
of the phonograph records.
If everyone only knew what wonderful
times were had by the group enjoying that
cabin, every town would try to have one. It
not only keeps young folks off the streets, but
gives them a place to go where each will be
in a group and out of trouble.

Do you often think of moonlight and then
different moods which it causes? This story
may bring about thoughts concerning your
role in life.
The crunch of gravel in the drive woke
Elin from a restless sleep. The eerie pattern
of moonlight through the trees spread an un-
earthly glow over the fur of her pet Angora
who was contentedly snoozing on the foot
of her bed. He seemed blissfully unaware of
Again came the muffled sound of steps
moving across the upper drive and onto the
Elin made no sound as she slowly crept
tc the open window. She was actually afraid
to look out. Cigarette smoke drifted lazily
by. The silence was overpowering.
A sudden' thought gave Elin courage to
look from her window. To the left of the
house grew a hedge of almost impenetrable
cedar trees. Away into the night stretched
the spacious lawn with its wall of fieldstone.
No sign of life.
Could she have imagined things? Was
there a person down yonder? Why had her
mother left her alone in the house? WVhy,
she might even be murdered in her sleep.
A cripple has almost no Way of defending
herself. These thoughts filled Elin's mind
until at length she 'cried out at the top of her
voice "Get a doctorlv thinking to scare the
person into leaving.
There was a sudden harsh grating noise,
as though a chair were being pushed back.
Then a crashing, as a figure Went scurrying
through the hedge. -
Clutching a robe about her, Elin reached
for her cane and started through the house.
lf only she were able to walk like a normal
girl! The suspense was beginning to upset
A piercing scream seemed to tear the black
silence to shreds. Then came a sickening
In an instant, Elin realized what had hap-
pened. It seemed like years before she could
get the door to the ocean-path to open.
Slowly, painfully,ishe made her way to 'the
edge of the precipice.
Elin looked down at the dreadful sight as
though she were dazed. The glassy eyes
staring up at her seemed to accuse her of
ln one glance, Elin saw that the person
whom she h1d tried to send on aevain errand
of ,mercy was her mother's new gardener.
She had. killed him as surely as though she
had shot him. The man must just have
arrived, then been really startled by her cry.

smile on that night as the slight form in its
ruffled robe made her slow journey back to

On the very iirst day of Drivers' Education
The most of us thought it was just recreation,
With nothing to do but just ride around,
And just get used to the "lay" of the ground.
To each of us a book was passed,
And next day some questions were asked.
Within a week many pages we knew,
The next thing was an exam or two.
Then before we knew it, we were on the road,
With all of us kids, there was quite a load.
We had learned by heart all the rules,
But when we got out there-well, we acted
Then much too soon, it came my turn.
Mr. Lymburner said, quietly "You'll soon
I then jumped quickly into the front seat:
And stepped on the starter with both feet.
The 1'.IClC-' raced, the wheels spun,
And everyone in the road did run.
Suddenly I came to a screeching stop!
Then, by gosh, things began to hop.
The tires smelled of rubber and the engine
Then to Hx everything, the radiator began to
"That's enough!" said Mr. Lymburner,
"Someday you'll get ahead,

Above the timbered woodland
The forest monarch stood.
Its leaves were of a golden hue,
Its trunk, the toughest wood.
For long, long years it had stood there,
Guarding the wooded hill,
When a band of woodsmen cut it down
And hauled it away to the mill.
The whole forest mourned its passing
With many a shudder and sigh,
For they knew they would never see again
A tree which stood so high.
Richard Nash ,50
The stars twinkle down on the sleeping town.
Snow glistens on the roof-tops and trees,
The moon shines brightly through the sky,
And lo! Fairies dance with the breeze.
To and fro the fairies go
Tripping gaily through the snow
The moon sends down its mellow ray,
To guide the fairies while at play.
The town in peaceful slumber dwells
As wee folk pirouette in dells
And on the moon-bright slopes-but day
Sends a golden haze from far away.
The fairies see the light, and soon
Trip gaily off thru the fallen snow.
But back theyill come, 'neath the mellow moon
In the spring, the pussy willows offer
Their tufts of ermine fluff,
And wait gracefully for someone to
Spy their woodland treasure.

Their captain heeds them not-

Thus all new alandsi' are sought.

Last spring Coach Thurlow Pitts had an
extra fine team. They won the H. C. S. S. A.
League championship and were undefeated.
This was the second time in three years that
the baseball trophy had been won by Stoning-
ton. The "Rocketsv went into the State Base-
ball Tournament for "Mn and "Sv schools.
Before a huge crowd at Stonington last Mem-
orial Day they defeated Pemetic High of
Southwest Harbor 11-10, coming from behind
in the last inning. The second tournament
game was played with Shead Memorial High
of Eastport at Ellsworth. After holding a 7-2
lead we lost finally 15-10.

By graduation we lost some fine players
in Raymond Crozier, Erwyn Eaton, Richard
Stanley, and Chester Carter. Last fall Wayne
Ciomei played first, Sidney Cross shortstop,
and Wayne SpoHord went into the outfield.
We lost to the locals and Vinalhaven but had
hopes for this spring as we still had our fine
battery of Dick Nash and Randall VVelch.
But Randall developed a bad sore arm this
spring and could pitch less than 5 innings.
We won 1 game, lost 5 in the League, finish-
ing last. However, Norman Wood got some
valuable experience pitching, and VVally
