Elmer Gross '52 2 a 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- dents. 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- tion. Exchanges "The Tattler" 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 "Breeze" 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. "The Gatheref' 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. "The Pilot" 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- tisements. "The Mountain Echo" Blue Hill George Stevens Academy The pictures are nice. A very nice printing job, especially on the ads. "Ocean Breeze" Beals High School A very complete book. The Social section is very interesting. "The Jester" Ellsworth High School The sports section is nice, the action shots give added interest. It is a very good assort- ment of pictures. "The Gaugus" Cherrylield Academy The print is not very clear. We liked your cover. "Harbor Be1con" Sullivan High School An interesting sports write-up, also nice pictures. The print is not too clear. "The Islander" 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 EDITGRIALS Knowledge 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 care. 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. Betty Gross '50 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 for autographs. 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- tion. Lorraine Morey '51 The New 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 enrollment. The first unit to be built will include a gymnasium, industrial arts ship and two classrooms. 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. I Marie Robbins '52 Driver Education 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.

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 Magazine Drive 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. Initiation 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 the onlookers. All were ready for the sandwiches and punch and the dancing which followed. Town Meeting Dinner Girls came hurrying with their neat and stiflly starched aprons. The Seniors were buzzing in and out with cakes, pies and many other things which they had solicited from the townspeople. Yes, this was Town Meeting Day and the Seniors and their helpers were getting ready for another annual dinner at the I. O. O. F. Hall. g, Eleven-thirty came quickly. The girls rushed to and from the tables getting orders over the noise of this discussing important town affairs. L. Barbour, Steele, Barter, A Nash, MacDonald 0 0 c 0 Cheer Leading The cheering squad started with five mem- bers: Letha Barbour, Loretta Lunt, Elaine Billings. Erlene Pray and Helen Steele, cap- tain. Erlene, Loretta, and Elaine had to leave the squad for reasons of health. They were replaced by Olive Barter, Collie McDonald. and Annette Nash. Trim costumes of black and white hats. white turtle-neck blouses, black slacks and white sneakers were chosen by the group. 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. Thanksgiving Festival 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 by the Seniorsg NVhite Elephants guarded by the juniorsg punch bowl and grabs sold by the Sophomoresg butterfly boxes on tickets and canned foods, looked after by the Fresh- men. The Eighth Grade pleased their cus- tomers by selling them the chance to fish for or guess for a prize. Last but not least 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 trips. L to R: Billings, G. Knowlton, Morey, Steele, J. Barbour, B. Gross, M. Robbins, Pray Library News The Library got olf to a very good start this year under the direction of the new Chief Librarian, Betty Cross. Lorraine Morey was elected treasurer. Lorraine Morey, Cwenita Knowlton, Marie Robbins, Loretta Lunt, Erlene Pray, Helen Steel, joanne Bar- bour, Betty Gross, and Elaine Billings, are student librarians. Thanks to the help of many people, over two hundred new hooks have been added to tlu- Library. The junior and Senior "Bri- tannieaii Encylopedias, which were pur- chased by the Town, received much use. They are treated with great respect and are in very good condition. 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, a-.fiich was held this year in Portland. All candidates are guests of the local Chap- ter at a tea. Pins and certificates of member- ship are presented by the President of the Chapter. ' This year, Betty Cross was the "Pilgrimv from Stonington High School. She was the guest of the Frances Dighton Williams chapter in Bangor on March Srd. Students representing eleven other schools in this part ci the State were present at this meeting. Standing: E.

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 of dancing. Christmas Program 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 Netherlands. The S. H. S. chorus participated in the pro- gram. "Santa Claus" arrived to help in the distri- bution of gifts and presents and to wish everyrne a very "Merry Christmasv. Junior Speaking The preliminaries for Junior Speaking were held on February 15, 1950. There were eight finalists instead of the usual six. The finals were held on March 3, 1950.

The prize of a silver medal was won by Ruth Alley, and a bronze medal for third place went to Barbara Bartlett. The other speakers received participation medals. Joanne Barbour represented Stonington High School at the University of Maine Speaking Contest on April 22, 1950. She was accompanied by the speech coach, Mrs. Esther Smith. Merriam - Webster Spelling Contest The junior and the Senior High School spelling contests were held on the evening of April 12, 1950. Mr. Benjamin Carter pre- sented the words, while Mrs. Benjamin Car- ter, Mrs. Gordon Richardson, and Mrs. Ed- ward Blackmore acted as judges of the cor- rectness of spelling. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary was used as the final authority. In the junior High Contest eight members of each of the Seventh and Eighth Grades were entered. Prize medals were awarded as follows: Dawn Sawyer, first, Rosemay Crozier, second, Nancy MacKay, third. The Senior High contestants, four from each class, exhausted their list of words be- fore the winners were decided.

University oi Maine "Open I-louse" 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- cation department. There was also time to see a track meet hetween the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire. and Sciences, and Technology. The mechan- ical engineering laboratory at Crosby Hall was one of the most interesting places THE 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 year? 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 OWL 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 next one! 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 Luck, juniorsln 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 a button? THE CLASSES Seniors L to R: Buckminster. Nash, Pray, L.

March 3, 1950 was the date of the annual Junior Speaking Contest, won by Joanne Bar- bour. Second prize went to Ruth Alley, and Barbara Bartlett placed third. "Twig of Thorn", the Junior Play, was pre- sented on May 9th. It was an Irish folk play, quite different from the usual high school play. The Junior Prom will be held on May 19, 1950. There will be a "Prom Queen" chosen. Lorraine Morey '51 Sophomores L to R: Cousins, G. Knowlton, Barter, E. Joyce, H. Joyce, N. Robbins, E. Gross. MacKay, Freedman, E. Holland, june Snow, M.

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- nial celebration. 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- fully illuminated. 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 airplanes. 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 trafhc. 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 be remembered. 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.

It measures about 750 feet in length and its beam is 100 feet. It draws 20 feet of water. In the middle of the flight deck near the island, is a regulation football field. Below decks I have plenty of footballs and other equipment. 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 my evenings. 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 drinks. 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 Barters wharf. Don MacKay '52 Gold 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 fish. We had the hole cemented and cleaned and used it for a well. Kenneth Allen '51 Surprised 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 the streets. 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' - Joanne Barbour and Barbara Bartlett '51 Scared To Death One hot summer day last year, a group of us girls went for a walk. We headed for Goose Cove. We were onto the wood road when we saw a house. Joanne spoke up, "I know who lives therev. "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 I couldnit. "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. Faye Barbour '53 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- giving Festival. 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 years. 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 me. 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 had sold forty tickets on the cake and four on the turkey. The pleased expression on "Clams, face was really worth seeing, for he had done his part for the Class of 1950. Betty Gross '50 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. Anita Cousins '52 A Night 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- self. With no companion, I began to get a little nervous. Iid never known a night could be so deathly still. An owl broke the silence with a mournful "Whoo-whoof' 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 home. I can still hear my shrieks echoing through the hills like phantom voices whispering to long-departed friends. Since then I have taken pains to invite my friends to accompany me on my evening strolls. Rose Stinson ,53 Skiing 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. Rebecca Knowlton '53 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 the floor?" "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!" jean Shepard '53 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 game. 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 janet. "Guess so,', murmured Helen, intent on watching a certain Vinalhaven player coach third base. "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 on strikes. Finally our team was up at bat again. Up jumped janet- "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. Margaret Walker '53 "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- motion?', "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 skating. "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- joy ourselves. Oh, but it was cozy when we were all grouped around the Hre, roasting mashmal- lowsl Dark wine-colored curtains hung at the V1f-1llC'v'J.S, with white ones over them. Lolling on the couch was Patsy, dreaming of the time when- she would have a house of her own. 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. Erlene Pray '50 Troubled Conscience 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 earthly happenings. Again came the muffled sound of steps moving across the upper drive and onto the terrace. 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 her. A piercing scream seemed to tear the black silence to shreds. Then came a sickening thud. 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 something. 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. The "man in the moonv had nothing to smile on that night as the slight form in its ruffled robe made her slow journey back to her room. Betty Cross '50 Fishing Boats The fishing boats are splinters of surf That make no movement toward the distant shore. So still, they lie like wind upon the water, So white, like gulls that dip and soar. Richard Spencer First Prize State of Maine Poetry Contest- Winter The winter elm is a spider skeleton, Reaching, grasping for webs of sunshine. james Clark '53 Worthy Mention State of Maine Poetry Contest Driver Education 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 like foolsl Then much too soon, it came my turn. Mr. Lymburner said, quietly "You'll soon learn." 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 of oil. Then to Hx everything, the radiator began to boil. "That's enough!" said Mr. Lymburner, "Someday you'll get ahead, "But by the time you do, I'll long be dead!" Faye Barbour '53 Winter Time The snow now covers the earth With a blanket of white. The children in their mirth Squeal with delight. Anita Cousins '52 The Islands We'll explore the islands, Each one a new adventure. And when the journey's over, We'll be tired-I bet'cha. Anita Cousins '52 My Brook The brook rushes babbling over slippery stones, Dashing frosty ships of ice against the lacy edges. Joanne Barbour '51 A Tree 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 By Moonlight 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 Pussy Willows In the spring, the pussy willows offer Their tufts of ermine fluff, And wait gracefully for someone to Spy their woodland treasure. Elwell Shepard '51 Winter When icicles hang from the trees And waterls like ice in the well, When snow fills the sky and our roads, We know that winter is here! Patsy Fifield '50 A Ship At Sea Out on the ocean blue, Over the waves so deep, Sailed a sturdy boat and crew A brave new land to seek. Storm clouds in the sky- In this tossing, stormy scene Forecast a blow nearby, The waves are lashing green! The crew with fear is stirred, Their captain heeds them not- Sail onl his only word- Thus all new alandsi' are sought. Lorraine Morey '51 The Sky The moon is held on a string at night, T0 Play Where Soft Sea breezes blow- Ahd is pulled to earth by the hand of light Barbara Bartlett '51 Ground Swell Restlessly, the liquid mountains roll on to the shore, To be dashed in foam asunder, with a cease- less roar.

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. Our schedule was as follows: Q' denotes home gamesl May 4 Stonington 5, Blue Hill 1 10 'Stonington 16, Brooksville 14 13 Stonington 4, Penobscot 1 17 'Stonington 7, Penobscot 1 24 Stonington 10, Brooksville 5 30 'Stonington 11, Pemetic 10 Iune 2 Stonington 10, Eastport 15 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 Webb and Richard Spencer broke into the infield at the close of the season. We lose Dick Nash by graduation. He batted .471 this year and will be hard to re- place. Standing: Coach Wilson, A. Holland, W. Shepard. MacKay, Webb, Nash: Seated: S. Gross, Spofford, E. Holland, Austin, Brake. Boys' Basketball This has also been a rebuilding year for the ullocketsi' basketball team. Coach Wilson lost four valuable players last june: Erwyn Eaton, Raymond Crozier, Dick Stanley, and Donald Billings. Donald MacKay, C., Ed- ward Holland and Sidney Cross, forwards, and Alvernon Holland, guard, won starting positions along with Dick Nash, the only veteran. Raymond Buckminster was appointed manager for the second year. The team started poorly but improved quickly during the year, thanks to the splen- did coaching of Coach William Wilson.
