This twenty-second edition of the l'Black and Orange" is presented as the tangible consummation of our life at Thayer, and as a salute to those of Thayer serving our nation in the armed forces. lnspired by their record, we have worked with greater intensity and stronger enthusiasm toward our goal. lvhile they, in dillerent capacities, strive for victory, we at home, also, have en- deavored to uphold the Thayer tradi- tions. The entire Year Book Stall extends its warmest appreciation to the friends of Thayer, to the faculty, and to the members of the Student Body who have contributed their talents so unsparingly to the success of this publication.

For four years, from the morning chapel exercise, through classes, study halls, sports, till the bugle for the lowering of the flag, we have spent such happy, full days at 'llhzlyer that it hardly seems possible that the Freshmen of yesterday are the Seniors of today, looking to graduation with mingled feelings of regret and hope. The memories of our class play, "lXIilestones", the competition on the playing fields, the quiet of the library, and above all, the friendships made with the teachers and fellow-students, are now a permanent part of us all. It is hard for such a closely knit class to dissolve, each member going his separate, uncertain way: but the sight of one of our former classmates or a glance at this "Black and Orange" will always conjure up these indissoluble memories.

Because of wartime transportation difficulties. our schedule of live games had to be cut to four, cancelling the game with Portsmouth Priory School. The game that took us farthest from home was the battle with Tabor. The boys enjoyed it very much and, in addition, were hospitably entertained by the school. The team learned much from the splendid coaching of Leon Harvey and "Lone Star" Dietz. Although we don't know what the coming season has in store, we ex- tend best wishes for a victorious season to our next team, captained by Richard Clapp. Those awarded the Varsity Letter included Co-Captains Jack Harding and Dave Nelson, Archie Melville, Daggett Morse, Lee Barthold, Dick Thompson, William Spaulding, john Spaulding, Donald North, John Spang, Harris Ullian, Lynwood Sargent, Robert Kemp, Fred Aluisy, Roger Gookin, Roy Coleman, Williziin Hebert, Walter Adams, George Moore, Bill Owen, Earl Yetman, Thomas Clark, Walter Almeda, Richard Clapp, and William Barrows lhlanagerj.

A good schedule of games was carried out hut everyone was disappointed that the Tahor game, which has always heen enjoyed hy team and supporters alike, had to he cancelled. Although our practice season was seriously hampered hy had weather, the team rolled up impressive scores, such as the 14-1 victory over Governor Dummer, once they found their "batting eye."

Hats off to the Thayer Academy Basketball Teaml This group of players did much to advance the name of our school along athletic lines. Under the guiding eye of its coach, Leon Harvey, the team rolled up impressive scores over all its opponents with the exception of Quincy High, which proved to he a little too strong. The high point of the season was a 36-20 win over the Quincy Y. M. C. A. lntermediates. Although a majority of the team will he graduated, come June. there will he five stalwart men left who, we hope, will serve as a nucleus for another great team. This year's membership included Charles Wason, Dick Thompson, Henry Har- low, Bill Owen, Bob Wade, Fred Aluisy, Lynwood Sargent, Walter Almeda, Dick Clapp, Gordon Page, Roger Cohen, Bob Kemp, and Lee Barthold.

Under the splendid coaching of Chet Young, the Thayer Academy Tennis Team played a stiff schedule of eight games. The scores, however, do not truly represent the ambition of our boys who often took on teams out of their class. Hard at work day after day, our boys acquired co-ordination of mind and muscle and showed a do-or-die spirit. The team included John Tinch, Bus Chandler, Jerrv Geisler, Fred Aluisv, Bob Horowitz, Don Wales, Arnold Warshauer, and f The scores were: THAYHR Aeanamx' Russ Christopher. i o Moses BROVVN THAYER ACAIJEMX' o Mmmesex ScHooi. .

The 19-1-2 appeal for members for the Junior Varsity Baseball team produced fifteen spirited boys, ready to take on any team. Encouraged by their capable coach, lNIr. Maurice Seymour, the team put up a stiff opposition to teams which enjoyed the opportunity of picking their ranks from much larger groups of applicants. The experi- ence gained by our boys will prove invaluable as time goes on, especially when the call goes out for varsity material. lllembers of this fine team included Cameron Baird, Richard Thompson, Eddy Young, William Keefe, Robert Whitney, Sidney Lavine, Joel Gordon, Ronald Sleeth, Charles Hartford, Roger Nordblom, Leslie Claridge, Robert Clark, Robert Heald, Gordon Page, and William Delia. Page 38 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . 1943 ,. , . INTRAMURAL . . On returning to school in September, we found that an intramural sport program had been introduced by the athletic departments. All students were required to elect the sport of their choice. This program seemed appropriate in view of the demands made by government authorities for improved health and physical fitness among the high school students of the nation. 'Ilhe participants were divided into two teams, the Black and the Orange. The results of each game were carefully recorded. After a close contest the Orange team Came out on top. Directors for this extensive program included Coach Leon Harvey and Xliss Sylvia Gates, directors of boys' and girls' athletics, Grover Hanson, soccer: Ed Doolittle, track, Harold Lewis, touch football: Paul Warburton, tennis: "Lone Star" Dietz, football, Helen Seymour, girls, soccerg Klarion Hendrick, girls' soccer: and Helen Hixon, assistant in hockey. 1943 . .

Hardy 'l'his year, after electing officers and initiating new members, the boys immediately plunged into their project, which was to do all they could to improve the new recrea- tion room. Plans were made to give the floor another coat of paint and to put the ping-pong table into usable condition. The Hi-Y and the G. A. A. worked together, selling tickets to raise funds for some of the improvements. The "Rec Room" has been a big success, enjoyed by all the students. Because of transportation difficulties, the club was unable to hold supper meetings, as done in the pastg but weekly meetings were held every Friday, during the activity period. Through the efforts of lXIr. Hardy, the Hi-Y was able to get Klr. Brown to speak to the students. He gave an interesting talk on his experiences in Rumania, under the German rule and the Gestapo whip. The members wish to thank both lllr. Hardy and Xlr. Seymour for their very helpful advice throughout the year. New members include: Walter Almeda, Richard Clapp, lohn Day, Westtmn Durant Frank Foster, Robert Harvey, Robert Kemp, Donald-Lewis, Daggett hlorse, Rodger Nordblom, Charles Pillsbury, John Spang, John Spaulding, and Robert Wzltle.

Under the supervision of Mr. Hall a group of chemical-minded students struggled with ionization constants, cations, and anions, not to mention amphoteric hydroxides and solubility products, sometimes referred to as Qualitative Analysis. After a few sessions in the laboratory performing delicate manipulations with test tubes, filters, and wash-bottles, the mysterious ways of chemistry began to unfold for most of us, and Mr. Hall took pride in watching us change "unknowns" into "knowns". Members of the club were: Walter Almeda, Cameron Baird, Lee Barthold, Frank Foster, William Ingmanson, Robert Jacobson, Gordon Page, Elliott Shinn, John Spaulding, and Thomas Clark. .. ..

The members aff! Rita Bardetti, Patricia Dugan, Virginia Frederick, Nancy Higgins, Barbara Lynde, Cor- inne 'l'ill, Katharine Wetherbee, and Eddy Young. . .. ART CLUB ... An Art Club was established this year as a regular activity, and was held every Friday, during the activity period. The class was small enough so that individual attention could be given by lblrs. Louise Pennock. Short lectures on types of composi- tion, color balancing, and methods of drawing were presented, informally, by lylrs. Pennock at each class. lXIodels and still life groups were used to achieve better effects. Members were: Audrey Barrett, lwarie Catania, Stanley Colon, lklarjorie Doe- ring, Patricia Dugan, Bob Harvey, Shirlev Leavitt, Lois Leggett, Pauline McFarlane Jane Neubauer, Dorothy Papani, Phyllis Papani, Priscilla Webster, and Katherine Wetherbee. ...

The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 SINCERELY OURS Dear Alenibers of the Class of '43: It has been a pleasure through your years at Thayer to watch your growth and development from Freshmen to Seniors. Now, a new and untried way lies ahead of you. It seems beset with many un- certainties and perils, and what shall I wish for you? I do not wish you courage, for that you already have-it is an attribute of youth. What I wish for you is the power to discern the verities of life and, having made the right choice, the strength of will to keep true to your convictions. Sincerely, LUCY EDNA ALLEN Your note, asking that I write something for the yearbook, has the terrifying implication that my separation from Thayer Academy has somehow lifted me into another realm from which I can write words of great wisdom. This is far from the case- in fact if I were to write back some message to the students at Thayer which could be based on my work in the Navy-it would be a conviction, stronger than ever before, that some of the ideals I tried to instill in my pupils are still fundamentally soundg namely, to think straight, to learn to express your ideas in speech or writing so clearly that not only are you sure to be understood but you can not possibly be mis- understood, and finally to remember that mastery of any hard subject does require hard work, but the results are worth the effort, whereas the easy subject may not be worth even the lesser effort. CExcerpt from Letterj EDMUND RUGNAN JOHNSON To my frienfls at Thayer: It still doesn't seem possible that I am not a part of all those grand persons on the Thayer faculty. I enjoyed my life at Thayer so much that I do want to take this opportunity to send my greetings to everyone, especially to all the girls that I have had in my classes and on the playing fields. I now find myself in a town on Lake Erie, seventy miles east of Cleveland. Conneaut is the largest shipping harbor on the Great Lakesg we are looking forward to March fifteenth when they break the ice for the first boat to come through. The people have been most cordial but I think were a little disappointed that I don't talk with more of a New England accent. My days at school are busy ones, and I enjoy living in a new section of the country. Sincerely, SYLVIA W. GATES Congratulations to the Class of 1943. You have done a fine job in a hard year. 1 feel almost as though I were a member of the graduating class, too, for we were "freshmen" at Thayer together in September, 1939. In the difficult but exciting times ahead, good fortune. Keep one little corner of your minds for Thayer people and things, and wherever the tide of events may sweep you, it will give you pleasure. Good luck and best wishes! As ever, ROBERT PHILLIPS LANE A Pzfdm W' da 'W ,i 1 9' I q cv :x x Qi! ??

PRIZE SHORT STORY FLIGHT It was hot in the swamp, hot and sweltering. Swarms of unseen insects hummed and whined in the still air. The sun beat down in merciless rays. Heat waves ob- scured the vision, and over it all hung a deathly hush. A figure lay huddled under a large nondescript bush that partially concealed it from the probing rays of the sun. Now and then it would stir, only to freeze into immobility at the slightest sound. The sun sank slowly behind the tangle of trees that formed the impenetrable center of the swamp, as the lengthening and deepening shadows spread a foreboding gloom. Now and then, the scream of a hunting panther or the hoot of a lonely owl drifted through the silent dusk. lt was not until the moon idled above the treetops, that the waiting figure bestirred itself. Slowly, ever so slowly, it rose, first to its knees, and then, awkwardly, to its feet. An involuntary gasp of pain escaped its lips as cramped muscles were put into play. A nearby cypress shadowed the intruder as it stood motionless, listening. Then, slowly, it began to move out into the moonlight, a girl, a young Negress, tall and lithe. As she moved along an obscure path, she constantly threw fearful glances over her shapely shoulder. She moved silently, like a wild thing, and held her head cocked in a peculiar listening position. Once, she shied like a nervous colt as a small denizen of the swamp scurried across her path. But whom was she fleeing, and why? Why had she lain-but bark! From somewhere behind her came a long mournful howl. What did it mean? But she had started to run now, prompted by the sound behind her. Dogs! They had come upon her scent. Sobbing with fear and lack of breath she stumbled on, tripping over roots concealed by the surrounding shadows. Once She splashed through a small tumbling stream that soothed and cooled her bare, aching feet. Abruptly, a comforting beam of light pierced the surrounding tangle, beckoning her on. Heading toward it, she continued in her headlong Hight, like a Hitting wraith, dodging from shadow to shadow. Spurred on by the howls that seemed to grope blindly through the moonlight behind her, she at last burst gasping and sobbing into a littered clearing. The light was filtering through a large crack in the wall of an ill-used shack on the other side of the clearing. The fugitive stumbled up to the very door, and, finding no support, fell up against it. The flimsily-latched door flew open, and the girl was deposited unceremoniously on the floor of the cabin. An old colored woman sitting in front of a feeble blaze, leaped to her feet and whirled to face the door. "Who's there?" she quavered. Then, noticing the heaving form on the floor, she hurried over to kneel beside it. Seeing that she was a mere girl, she helped her to her feet and half carried, half led her to the comforting warmth of the fire. Together, they sank to sitting positions, the older woman with her arm encircled protectingly about the sobbing girl's shoulders. Softly the old woman bummed a lullaby, till the sobbing slackened and ceased. For a moment they sat there staring wordlessly into the fire. Then, gently the old woman asked, "What's th' mattuh, honey? Why wuz you runnin' from dogs?" At the sound of her voice, the girl started guiltily, then relaxed. At first it seemed the girl would not answer. Then, tonelessly, she began to talk. "Dey's after me. Dey got dogs. Dey been searchin' for me all day!" She turned terrified eyes to her hostess. "You mustn't let 'em get me. You gotta hide me! Please!" "But what did you do, honey?" The girl returned her eyes to the fire. 1943 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . Page 61 "I killed a man. A white man", she added for clarification. She plunged on before the other could interrupt. "I didn't mean to do itl He made me!" She again fell silent. "Who, chile?" prodded her benefactress. The girl took a deep breath. "lNIistuh Crockett. I work at his place as maid. When he come in last night, he was drunk, awful drunk. I seen him like that before, but nevuh so-so bad. I was in the kitchen fixin' me a bite before I was to go up to bed. I live in a room in the attic," she added unnecessarily. "I heard him come in, but I didn't pay much attention cuz he almos' allus drunk when he come in, ev'nin's. Sides, his wife nevuh mentions it, so I figgered he was harmless. Harmlessf' She gave a short laugh and continued. "I hear him come into th' kitchen where I was working. I was kinda late cleanin' up, else I nevah would'a seen him. l had my back to him on account I was leanin' ovah the sink. I nevuh heard him come up to me, and th, first thing I knows, he grabs me and starts kissin' me. He was horrible drunk. Smelled as if he spilled a whole bottle of gin on his coat. "Well, he grabs me like I say, th' dirty-I" She was interrupted by the omni- present howl, much clearer this time. She blanched, and continued hurriedly. "I fought like everythin' cuz I was afraid his wife would come down an' find us an' then I'd lose my job. I finally got free and grabs up a knife an' points it at him, an' sez, 'Go way, hir. Crockett, cuz I don' wanna play', but he jes laffs an' sez, 'You would'n hur' me, Beshy, I love yuh.' Nen he makes a grab for me. I slashed at him with th' knife an' den dere's blood all ovuh, an' he lying on th' flo' with his face all covered with blood and he's makin' funny bubblin' noises in his throat, den he kinda shivers and den he lies awful still, an' I knows I'se kilt him, an his wife comes in an sees us an she screams and I run out the back do' an' hide in th' swamp all day. 'Nen when th' moon comes up, I stahted back, but they bin cold-trailin' me all day an' now they got my trail an' if they catches me, I gotta go back to hang, so you gotta hide me, cuz if you don't, I gotta go back inter th' swamp an this time I-aint-comin'- out. The dogs' voices were much louder now, and the trembling girl could hear the men calling to one another. Frantically, the young negress cast about the cabin for some type of hiding place, however small. But there was none. Not even so much as a cupboard. By now the men's voices were very clear, so, with a last trapped glance around, the fugitive ran out into the night. She back-tracked for a few yards, and then cut sharply into the underbrush. The men's voices died behind her, and soon she was in silence, broken only by her crashing progress through the undergrowth. Abruptly, she broke into a clearing, and stopped short. Before her spread an expanse of wet sand, gleaming in the moonlight. Behind her, the dogs' voices were again raised in excitement. A large buck, roused out of his bed by the approaching clamor, trotted out of the bushes, paused, regarded her in- differently, and then, without hesitation, trotted out onto that treacherous bog. The negress winced, expecting to see him be sucked in by the quicksand, for that was what it was. It was the famed Murphy quicksand bed, known throughout the state as hav- ing claimed many known victims, and probably thousands that will never be known. But the buck hopped blithely from spot to spot till he, with a derisive glance over his shoulder, was safely on the other side. He looked at her as if it say, "Come on, what's keeping you ?" and then bounded off into the safety of the brush. It was then that she noticed spots of firm ground interspersed throughout the mire so, with heart in mouth, she followed the buck's example. Twice her foot slipped into the sandg once a piece of ground sank beneath her, causing her to leap wildly for the next spot. She reached firm ground, and turned in time to see the dogs, four brutish mongrels, crash Page 62 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 through from the other side. Sighting their quarry, they, as one, leaped at her. How- ever, they were not so fortunate as the buck, and they were dragged to the murky depths before their masters arrived on the scene. The girl was standing in the shadow of a sheltering cypress, when the men burst into Sight, so she was not noticed. Their resultant conversation carried clearly to the girl. "My Aunt Hannah! Murphy'sl" "Boy, d'ya think she got through it?" "Don't be dumb. How could she? Nothing could get across that." "Yeh, guess you're right." "Let's go back. This place gets me." With that, the men slowly returned the way they had come. The girl watched them out of sight with bated breath. Free. She was free. Ex- ultant, she turned and started off along a faint trail leading into the brush. The men had not been gone long, when one of them gave a whoop to an old fel- low just emerging from the undergrowth. After an exchange of greetings, they asked where he had been. "Well, fellers, y'know the path on the other side of lVIurphy's? The faint one that goes through the bushes? Well, sir, I figgered out a way to catch old 'Nero', that panther that's been raisin' so much heck with our livestock. A little way in from the bushes in the path, I've just dug a fifteen-foot pit, with sharpened stakes on the bottom pointing up 'bout a foot and a half. Well, sir, l've covered that pitfall up so good not even a panther'd know there wan anythin' there but good solid ground. But boy, when he steps on that coverin', whaml I got him. I tell you it can't fail. Nothing alive could fall fifteen feet, get impaled on them stakes, and live. Not-l" Here he was interrupted by a horrible rasping scream that echoed throughout the silent swamp. The old fellow cackled merrily. "Heh, heh, heh, l knowed l'd get 'iml" And when one of the men suggested going to get the quarry, he said "Don't need tuh. Heh, heh! l'll get him this after- noon. He won't get away. Not fulla holes, he won't. No, sir! Plfhatewr is in that trap is good and dead! Heh, heh. heh, heh, heh!" The other men congratulated him, and one suggested a drink when they got to town. They were surprised to learn, at the tavern, that Nero had been shot the night before and was even now hanging. up at Ed Barton's place.

For I on the shore can feel it, too- That presence of an omnipotent hand, That holds the wind that holds the waves That toss the boats on the sea. R. E. D., '43 Page 64 . .

Lois Ellgner, '43 THE TRAGIC COMICS lt has often been said, "Childhood days are the happiest." That saying must, however, have originated before the modern "funny papers" reached their present state. How ironical is this cognomen, "funny papers". lf the humor of the small minority of "comic" strips which are really humorous is compared with the abounding tragedy of the great majority, the result is impressive. We have our American news- papers to thank for this. ln spite of the horror, fear, and sadness, or maybe because of it, strange as it may be, the American child of today devours each drawing, each mur- der, each word with increasing avidity. Take for example "Dick Tracy", the great detective. At present he is involved in tracking down a man who seems to have murdered his father while preparing deadly poisonous gases for sabotage. His "boss" is a terrible-looking creature by the name of Boche. This episode has been started when Junior, while sleeping in a hay- stack, goodness knows why, suddenly senses a bloody hand grasping his leg in a deadly clutch. All, of course, is very realistic. We would naturally expect bloody hands in deserted barns, or if we had not up until now, we shall be sure to have fear of it in the future, thanks to Dick Tracy. Of course, there is always a happy endingg justice and right always overcome crime, but that is the uninteresing part. The interest of our American youth is centered upon the crime and bloody murder. More satisfaction appears to arise when the criminal escapes, than when he is caught. Then too, to satisfy those precious youngsters who like to feel independent and domineering, we have "Little Orphan Annieu, truly a miracle child. Of course, in the past ten years, the period of my acquaintance with her, she has not grown an eighth of an inch, nor has she worn a different dress, and she is still surviving all sorts of scourges, accidents, kidnappers, and similar "happy" encounters. Right now she is revolutionizing the nation with her "Junior Commandosu. So far the real HJ. C's" have not attempted actually to copy her actions. Heaven help us if they do! 1 certainly do not look forward to the day when l shall meet a nice little girl who can, without a moment's hesitation, knock out ten of the tough boys, two with her feet, three with her fists, four with a fence picket Cwhich loosens miracu- lously at her touchl and the rest by the general commotion. A sweet child! There are those strips, also, in which the tragic note does not prevail, but which, nevertheless, obviously lack humor in any true sense of the word. Among these, the most oustanding is "Terry and the Pirates", truly a masterpiece. This absorbing strip caters to the older, more emotional and romantic youth. No murders, no fighting is found here, but instead, sweet, syrupy, romantic heroism. The drawings abound in beautiful women and handsome men, appealing to certain types of readers. Of all the 1943 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . Page 65 cartoonists that of "Terry and the Pirates" is the only true artist, but how many of his gasping, throbbing readers appreciate this? l must confess, however, that the first page to which I turn in the newspapers is invariably the comic page. Esther Kaplan, '43 THE EXAMINATION PERIOD The air is tense! The hum of voices fills the room like so many angry hornets. Suddenly, an expectant hush fills the room as a dignified personage crosses the thresh- old. With firm and martial steps he strides to his desk, master of all he surveys, for he is a teacher, and it is examination time. All is deathly silence now as papers are passed around the class room. Each pupil, once a happy, carefree youth, receives his paper and, with an air of signing his own death warrant, he puts down his name and class and begins the test. Some faces reflect an attitude of grim foreboding, while hysteria claims many more victims who are in the toils of mental anarchy, from which there is no escape. A typical pupil's thoughts at this stage of the test are interesting, though perhaps alarming. One thinks the whole test is preposterous, while another is already forming explanations for unprepared parents, who, it as a personal insult. Suicide is contemplated is wondering how to explain the new mark he The next trend of thought is resentment, toward teachers in general, and the specimen seems, take any mark lower than a lll by one unfortunate, while still another will receive, a VI, to the home front. closely followed by a homicidal yearning of the species down front in particular. However, no one need worry, for these thoughts are easily forgotten when, and if, the test is passed. But now the test is over, the bell rings, and the victims file out, with an outward air of confidence, and an inward feeling of sheer horror. Some pupils assume an air of bravado now, but these are the ones who most surely fail, and we let them strut while they may, for the day of reckoning is near. From this description one might think, come report card time, that the red ink is going to How in rivers, and surprisingly enough, this is sometimes true. However, at the risk of being called a rumor-monger, l wish to point out that, in some few instances, courses have been passed, and honors attained, and diplomas given, absurd as it may sound to some, myself included. Nelson Jrn1itr1ge, '44 MUSTANG You fascinate men With your untamed beauty. Perhaps that is why they cannot stop Till they have quenched you, spirit of Fire ll-Iade you broken, one of the herd. Lois Ellgner, '43 Page 66 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 THE NIGHT With a start I awoke! What was it, that eerie wail that had jolted me out of my peaceful slumber? Sitting bolt upright, hearing nothing but the palpitating of my heart, I peered into the shadows. My eyes, unused to the darkness, could discern nothing at first. Gradually I was able to make out the dark forms of the furniture against the paler walls. What horror might be lurking out there enveloped in the blackness! I waited, terror-stricken at the thought of what I might see, yet unable to close my eyes. Some horrible fascination forced my gaze to remain on the corner where huddled a livid object. With the wisdom of my years, I knew that ghosts did not exist: but could I be sure? Could I? I sat there, shivering with cold and fear, every muscle tense. To my straining ears came only the sound of wind and rain, and the dismal ticking of the clock down- stairs. I had not noticed this before, but now it seemed to obscure all other sounds. Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock! Slow, heavy, rhythmic, like the steps of a ghost. Tick, tock! Tick, tock! Shrill, blood-curdling, chilling, came the awful sound again! For an instant I was petrified with fear, but after a second or two I regained control of my limbs and dived beneath the covers-head and all. Lying there, trembling, with my throat constricted with fear, I waited for the feeling of cold, murderous hands that I was sure would soon follow. I lay awake for the rest of that fearful night, listening to the howling of the wind, the drumming of the rain, and the mysterious creaking of the house. The morning was cold, gray, and cheerless, but it was a welcome sight for me. I am not ashamed to say it. After all, the night can be rather terrifying when you are only six years old! Lois Leggett, '45 A PILOT You are living for freedom, yet you're ready to die Fighting for our country-up there in the sky. Like an eagle, you zoom Over snow-capped peaks and painted deserts, Above blue mountains and canyons where gray waters windg O'er tangled swamps and dreaded jungles, where wild beasts congregateg Above the wind-lashed ocean, and the white-capped sea. You fly by sun or starlight, through static, ice, and rain. Always poised for swift action, ready to strike at the foe. You watch our islands, guard our shores, And soar over horizons to distant lands. Oh! There must be solitude in an airplane Where a man can commune with God. He may curse his follies and ease his heartache Through this lonesome high patrol. Illarjorie B. Bishop, '43 1943 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . .

JU., '43 BRIDGTON'S SPORTSMAN'S EXCHANGE The Sportsman's Exchange is just what its name implies. llly first association with it was when l was ten years old. One fine summer morning I proudly marched in with my hard-earned dollar and fifteen cents, to buy my first fishing license from Edward J. Smith, the proprietor. QI save a great deal by not buying fishing licenses anymore.J Ever since then, however, that store has acted as a magnet upon me. The store itself has two show windows. The left window is filled with rifles, glit- tering salmon spoons, and folding canvas camp stools. The right window contains a few second-hand outboards, some nineteen-twenty-three sun goggles, and a badminton set. Inside at right angles to the show windows are counters. The left counter begins with fish-nets, and holds everything from Hies, worm boxes, and jackknives to spoons and flashlights. It is here that I spend long half-hours gazing at all this and dreaming fish stories impossible anywhere except in my imagination. The right counter used to be a bar, a very prosperous place on Saturday nights. But now it has been converted into a rack for displaying outboard motors. ln the center of the store some kind of portable light canoe or boat is always shown. All around the room mounted on the walls are deer, moose, and bear heads, fish and pelts. For each one there is a story, usually altered or exaggerated to suit the narrator's taste. "Ed" Smith himself is about sixty years of age and now heads the local ration- board with his "spouse Bessyu as he calls her. He owns a wonderful Irish Setter called "Pixie" who last year offered him seven puppies. In the back room of his store con- taining an oil lamp, a wood stove, and smelling of leather, cedar shavings, and tobacco, his old cronies gather by the hour and exchange yarns as old as our country. On cold October evenings, when the lamps are lit, and the stove's puffing away, and when hunters from all over the state bring in their game to be licensed, it is the most roman- tic place on earth and typically American.

One shining, beckoning star gleamed in the wide clear sky-Venus, leading Adonis straight to her soul. There was a strange singing in my heart when I sur- veyed the scene of contentment about me. I sank into the cool grass, enjoying the delicious odor of violets, half hidden in the grass like little purple shadows. Beside me was a stream, and the sound of the clear green water tinkling was more beautiful than Bach or lylozart. It flowed along happily, gurgling and protest- ing merrily against the stubborn little rocks that blocked its way. The trees formed a protecting circle about me, whispering soft secrets and sigh- ing sadly-rustling their green leaves in shivering ecstasies. Their shadows were re- flected in the stream-vague, shimmering outlines, dancing sedately. The birds chirped their goodnight and slept peacefully, dreaming, no doubt, of the coming day. Mother Nature unfolded her blanket of darkness and drew it over the country- side, then, as an afterthought, set out the stars to shine as a mother puts a candle in the window to guide her loved ones home.

Lois Ellgnrr, '43 PORTRAIT He was a kindly-looking old man. His clothes were old but neat, and he was impeccably groomed, from his head to his shiny worn shoes. Anyone would know that he was a gentleman. His bright eyes beamed from under a misty halo of cloudy white hair. He sat quietly, even disinterestedly, and once or twice that gentle old head nodded, as if he had an urge to doze. He had the browned skin of a man who had spent most of his life in the open: perhaps he had a garden, or perhaps he enjoyed fishing. I could close my eyes and visualize him holding a swaying pole, with a small boy hanging over him asking silly questions, to be answered patiently. He was the sort of man whose pockets should be filled with toys and candy for his countless small friends . . . He looked up, then returned to his meditation. 1943 ..... The BLACK and ORANGE .... Page 69 He had said that his name was Jonathan Elliott, a name that seemed to fit his personality perfectly. I was awakened from my reverie by a solemn voice. "Jonathan Elliott, the state has proved you guilty of murder in the first degree. Have you anything to say before sentence is pronounced upon you ?" "Only that I have killed, and will kill again when I escape I" snarled the old man. The Judge's voice rang out in righteous fury. "I sentence you to be hanged by the neck until dead."

In some places his tears had blurred the writing. Parts of the letter were unintelligible, but it did not matter. He knew it by heart and could fill in the missing words. "Dear Dad: I am going to slip this letter in among your handkerchiefs so you'll not find it until I have left. I can't go away without trying to explain some of the things which I have wanted to get off my chest for years. It was always hard for me to talk to you for I'm slow and sort of tongue-tied, and you seemed too busy to listen most of the time. I'd get tangled up and fumble my words, and in the end I didn't get it over. You probably thought I was practically half-witted. But I thought you were wonderful. And all the trophies in the library, the cups for golf and tennis, the guns on the wall, the photographs of your polo ponies. You did everything so well, and I never hoped to come up to your expectations. From the beginning you counted on my following in your footsteps, but I knew it wasn't in me. I wasn't made of the same stuff. Mother understood that I was different. She worried because you and I didn't get along better, so she tried to be a buffer between us. That must have been why you sent me off to that boys' camp when I was only nine, against her wishes. You thought that I was a sissy but I had never been taught to defend myself. Those big boys scared the daylights out of meg that's why they picked on me. You expected me to go back, but Mother put her foot down. After that you let me go out to the farm for summer vacations. I loved the farm -the horses and the colts and the peace. The smell of pines and the sound of the wind-I liked to sneak away and lie on my back in the pasture by the brook and watch the birds. I don't believe you can understand that, can you? That was when I began to think of flying. The birds all looked so happy, so free. They'd loop and dive and sing their little hearts out up there in the blue sky. By the time I was sixteen I knew I had to fly. You talked about my coming into one of your plants when I finished college, and I didn't argue. Luckily, an engineering course was necessary for flying, too, so we didn't need to argue over my schedule. I was too light for football, which disappointed you. I wasn't so hot on the golf course or the tennis courts either. Because I didn't go out for athletics, you couldn't under- stand why my grades were so low. I didn't dare tell you, because, you see, I was spend- ing all my spare time out at the airport. I managed to get by in all my classes though. I had it all figured out carefully. Put the heat on the courses that would matter later and donlt waste time on things that wouldn't be important in flying. That brought my average down, of course. Mother knew about it. I am sure she was terrified at the idea of my flying, but she encouraged me just the same. She realized what it meant to me. I never asked her not to tell you, but I'l1 bet she didn't. When I first went off to school, she used to call me long distance. Sometimes she would call me to ask if I had gotten my feet wet, or, if exams were approaching, to assure me that I'd come out all right. Quite often she rang up for no reason at all-just wanted to talk to me. That always happened when I was sort of low in mind. She could always tell in that uncanny way of hers. Honestly, she could read my mind, high or low. After Mother died, I had a bad time. I wanted to come home and stay with you but you didn't ask me. I suppose it was awful for you, too, alone in this great house. If her going left as big a hole in your life as it did in mine, it must have been horrible. You adored her. We had that in common, at least. 1943 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . Page 71 I missed her letters and the telephone calls and I hoped you would fill in once in a while for her, but you didn't. The only letters you wrote were those you sent after my reports were sent home. Those weren't the kind I needed. By spring I soloed out at the flying field and for the first time felt really alive. It's a thrill, Dad, I can't explain it. You feel a relationship with the birds, a freedom from the earth. It's lonely, flying, but I think I've always been kind of lonely and don't notice it. It makes you conscious that you're master of your fate. By June of 1941, when I graduated, things were all mixed up all over the world. We fellows talked seriously about our futures. We were all rather unsettled and up- set, I suppose. Some of the men were already drafted. So then I went right out and enlisted in the Air Corps. I did it right after graduation and before I came home. It was the only way, because I had made my decision and I was afraid you'd be able to change my mind if I came home first. While I've been here waiting for my orders I've been doing a lot of thinking. I haven't been loafingg I've been growing up. It has suddenly dawned on me that I am of age,-I am a man and I can decide for myself. I am a good flyer-an exception- ally good one, they tell me. I am glad that I can do this job well, that I have found the one place where I can be tops. I could never have been that in your factories. I'd just have been the big boss's son. That isn't enough for me. lf I stick my neck out in this flying business, it will be my neck and my responsibility. Listen, Dad, I want you to be as proud of me as I am of you. I want you to be able to say, 'My son,' some day and get a thrill out of it. I want you to be able to say, 'Well done, flyer,' and mean it. That's what lVIother would say if she were here. Flying is fun, Dad. I love it and am incomplete without a plane. Try to under- stand this, and when I am gone, remember that I'll be fulfilling my destiny. I'm going to succeed in my way as you have in yours. Goodby- Your son." He folded the letter gently and got to his feet. Crossing the library he stood before his desk looking down through a mist at the portrait of his son. The firelight cast a lifelike glow on the handsome young face, the steady dark eyes seemed to watch him, and the lips seemed to be on the point of smiling shyly. He picked up the bronze cross, hung from its bit of bright ribbon. It felt cold, and he warmed it between his hands. Then he wrapped it carefully in the creased letter and replaced it in its box. He heard again the Hne high-sounding words: "Dis- tinguished Service Cross-posthumously awarded-conspicuous bravery in action against overwhelming enemy aircraft-beyond the call of duty." "And now it's too late to tell you how I loved you." His voice shook a little. "How proud I was of everything you did. I knew a lot more about you than you real- ized, Son, but like you, I couldn't get it out." He raised his hand slightly in salute. "Well done, flyer," he said softly and he thought he saw the corners of his boy's mouth turn up in response. Kenneth Ill. Bishop, '44 Page 72 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 DADDY GETS IN THE SCRAP My daddy is a saving sort of man. He is always tucking away some sort of gadget because "it may come in handy some time." And so it was a momentous day when he joined the town scrap committee. After a meeting or two we noticed a peculiar gleam appearing in his eye as he wandered around the house, poking here and there. Came the next week-end. On Saturday Daddy disappeared completely, but ham- merings in the barn told us that the casing of an old motor was soon to be among the missing. Then an old galvanized barrel appeared, and soon we heard the clank-clank of metal against metal. By night it was full: old golf-club heads, steel bars from under the barn, five pieces of bronze from a former boat, an old axe head, a trailer hitch fit must have hurt a bit to toss that inl-these are only a few items which suddenly became "handier" for the government than for us. Daddy had been saving a few lengths of old pipes of various sizes. "Excellent for use as rollers, if for nothing else," said Daddy. They all went in, and even our neigh- bor's suggestion that one piece of each size be saved for future need, did not slacken the newly acquired ardor which had gripped the head of the house. Then all became quiet. Mother, nobly co-operative, had sacrificed an old Hat iron, an electric clock, a loving cup, a candle holder, and various semi-precious kitchen utensils. Our house, it seemed, had produced its last ounce of scrap. The next day was Sunday, a day of rest. But not for Daddy. He had learned that a farm nearby had lots of old metal. We missed him that morning. ln fact, we had to call him to dinner. Then we learned that he and the neighbors had been burn- ing up three old horse-carriages and putting the metal bars in the pile. We saw that none of our possessions would be safe until after the collection day. Nlother feared for her lamps and bed springs. But the crowning touch came on the long awaited collection day when Daddy was scheduled to go with ten other men to help with the collection. To everyone's dismay, he was suddenly confined to his bed with a severe case of the grippe. Eleanor Dawis, '45 POSSESSION "VVhat a homely thing," l cried Flicking a contemptuous finger at its pot-bellied side. Her voice loved and caressed its squat ugliness Like a tender and protective mother: "lt has a great historyn- "So has everything-that makes it no better."

Page 73 EXIT BANCROFT The cry died out, leaving dreaded silence-a stillness so dense and oppressive that I longed to break it by a word, but could not force my lips open. I knew by whom the cry had been uttered. Abel Bancroft had been my best friend. He had never wronged me by word or deed, yet-I knew I must kill him. I could not stand his cultured conversationg his politeness irritated me. Bly dislike grew and possessed me, till there was but one thought in my mind-death for Bancroft. I planned carefully. Bancroft suspected nothing. Each detail was planned and replanned. Some would have said I was mad. Mad? Who, I? No one took more precautions in a plan. No, I could not be mad. I planned with cold realism. I invited Bancroft to walk with me and gave him no time to inform his family. We were to visit the new steel mills in the vicinity. We walked up on the catwalk. I knew every move. The machines were quiet. The workmen were sitting in small groups in the welcome shade of the firs. Bancroft leaned over to inspect the depths of a seething pot of bubbling molten steel. It was but the work of a second to grab his feet and throw him over the rail. His cry froze me in my tracks. I had not expected him to cry out, but my heart rose as my enemy vanished in a sheet of Hame. Ah, his scream had been heard. What! I had not though of that. I could see him looking at me out of the cauldron. But, he could not! He was dead! He must be dead! I, myself had seen him perish in a sheet of Hamel But! There he was. The face was laughing at me. I heard footsteps running on the catwalk. The face seemed to beckon. Bancroft! I stepped over the edge of the catwalk.

My fingers, nipped from frosty bite, Pain me less than heavy heart. The world is dismal, sad, forlorn- The life, the light, the love depart. Then, all at once, in glancing up, I see a vase, a single flow'r, Not lovely in itself alone, But in its symbolism, a power To face the strife, the world's despair, There's love, there's light, there's God, there's Prayer. Norma Roelflad, '43 Page 74 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 TOLERAN CE When I look back on what you taught to me, Remembering how I once looked up to you, I chuckle at my blindness not to see The barrenness that others could look through. You tried to chain my feet so they'd not stray Upon the primrose paths of love and hate. You preached the safety of the middle way, And from emotion held me, celibate. You hoped that I should never learn at all To love to do as well as just to gazeg But, luckily, somebody made me fall- And now I look on tolerance as a phase. Lois Ellgnrr, '43 A PLEASANT SATURDAY FOR THE MORANS Uncle Joe was always reluctant to stir from his tulip bed on Saturday afternoons, so I knew that there was a major battle of wills in order when Aunt Ethel suggested that we drive up to visit the Hartons. Uncle Joe immediately came forth with a thou- sand and one reasons why we would be better off at home. He predicted that we would have a flat tire, that I would be ill on the way, that we would run into con- struction work on the road, and that the Hartons probably wouldn't be at home. Aunt Ethel, of course, had an answer for everything. She was so sure of victory that she sent me upstairs to prepare for a drive. As I left the dining room where my relatives were arguing, I heard Uncle Joe say that he wouldn't go and that was final! Thirty minutes later we were rolling merrily along the road to Granville, where the Hartons made their home. My uncle was in a surly mood which was not at all enhanced by the fact that the driving was made difficult by construction work. We jounced about so wildly on the unfinished surface that my head soon began to ache intolerably. When I asked Uncle Joe to hand me the aspirin box, Aunt Ethel snapped at me, saying that I was not to bother my uncle. just as we passed the gate at the other end of the construction work, I noticed a peculiar sensation, seeming to have its source somewhere beneath me. Uncle noticed it, too, for, stopping the car, he got out. "Oh, dear, don't tell me it's a puncture," wailed Aunt Ethel, as she opened the door. She soon discovered that her fears were justified. Uncle Joe, strangely enough, did not seem much perturbed as he went about changing the tire. When we were on our way once more, my uncle began to whistle a merry tune. Because of the delay, we were a little late in reaching Granville. lt was almost dark as we turned into the Harton's driveway. Imagine our consternation when we saw that our friend's car was missing from the garage! My uncle backed the car into the street, but in doing so he dented the fender on a tree. Aside from this mishap we arrived home safely. Hungry and tired, we made our way to the house, but at the front door we discovered that Uncle had forgotten his key. This was the last straw. A 1943 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . Page 75 "What a terrible day this has been!" exclaimed my aunt in a peevish tone. Uncle Joe took a deep breath in preparation for a short speech, but Aunt Ethel didn't give him a chance. "lt's all your fault, Joe Moran," she cried. "If you hadn't thought of that dreadful trip, we'd be eating fried chicken in front of a warm radiator! On account of you, we have to buy a new tire, have the fender fixed, and the car springs replaced! Well, don't stand there grinning like an ape! You should be ashamed of yourself." Uncle Joe went to the garage for a wrench, smiling sadly.

Robert Jacobson, '43 THE RETURN He looked in the living-room window. There they were, just as they had always been: she, knitting by the fireplace, he, browsing through the evening paper. The fire was taunting him, daring him to come in. lf he went in by the front door, they would hear him on the porch and be on guard, but if he slipped around to the back of the house and through the kitchen into the room, he would catch them by surprise. With one last glance through the window, he crouched, and glided towards the back porch. Opening the door with just the amount of upward push necessary to prevent it from squealing, he entered the dark- ened kitchen and headed for the door 'to the living room. He had remembered little details in order that nothing would spoil his plan, accordingly he carefully sidestepped the stool placed near the sink. With trembling hand he quietly grasped the knob of the door, tensed his nerves, and flung it open. Startled, they looked up, and suddenly they were upon him.

There was a look of intense pride on Janey's face as she spoke, rather loudly, for the benefit of several passers-by. "Oh, isn't he marvelous, Janey? just look at those shoulders. Do you think you could introduce me to him?" sighed Betty, looking longingly after the tall figure. "Of course, Silly. I'll do it right now," exclaimed Janie: and the two girls raced down the corridor. They came to an abrupt stop in front of the hero, and Janie said, breathlessly, "Hi, Eddie. I want you to meet my best friend, Betty Breckenridge-Betty, this is-" She was interrupted by a murmur from the stricken Betty-"You don't have to tell me who it is. My goodness, I guess Eddie Jordan is about the most famous foot- ball player in Massachusetts. Youlre a wonderful player," she breathed, turning on all her so-called charm. "Oh, I wouldn't say that," modestly replied Eddie, secretly agreeing with her completely. "I just haven't any good competition." He straightened his tie and smoothed his hair, beaming down on his admirers. "l've got to run now. Be good, Janey-nice knowin' you, Betty-or is it Bar- bara? Well anyway, see you around." He disappeared in the direction of the girls' gym class. After a moment, Betty squealed rapturously-"Did you hear what he said, Janey? He said he'd see me. I wonder if he wants a date. Isn't he marvelous?" Phyllis Jllen, '44 QUESTION Did it ever seem to you That we are just intruders In a strange and hostile land, You and I? Do they look at us and grin?

There was Fred A. in actor garb Who swayed the world with his wit so suave. Professor Clark with his flirting way Still loved the girls, though his waves were gray. And over there from the cheering stand, The crowds shouted at Webby, the Big League Nlan. Right next to me stood a scientist noted, 'Twas our own Bob VVhitney o'er whose fame we gloated.

He argued to himself that nothing could happen now . . . everything was finished, and just right, too. John was proud of himself for the way he had carried out his plan. "Not a slip," he exulted. 'No one will ever know what went on in that room. Now all I have to do is wash my hands and sit down to wait for her to come home. l'm safe, now ....

But, strangely enough, it didn't seem to be so comfortable as it formerly had been. After about an hour, he got up to look at the clock . . . why. it said only ten minutes from the time he had sat down. "The clock must have stopped l" he thought despairingly. But no, the clock was still ticking, as steadily as the rain beating against the windows. All of a sudden, John felt a horrible fear come over him. What if she should find outl But she wouldn't. He had hidden all traces completely. "lmpossiblel" he said aloud, yet his heart was still gnawed by a tiny grain of fear. He sat down in front of the clock. The minutes seemed like hours.

Riclinrzl Clnflfr, '44 MOUSE IN ROOM THREE Oh, tiny, timorous little mouse, Why do you make this room your house? lt's not a crumb-filled destination- So you must be seeking an education. Norma Rofblrul, '43 1943 The BLACK and ORANGE . . Page 81 HOW TO FLUNK A COURSE There are various and innumerable ways to Hunk a course, but the most positive method is to incur consistently, the antagonism of the faculty. Here are some sure-fire recipes: Always be late for class, and try to time your arrival to coincide with that psycho- logical moment, when the class has settled down and got under way, and the teacher is explaining some problem or assignment. lt will distract the pupils, who undoubtedly will appreciate the situation. Be on the alert to disagree with the teacher on every possible point, and ask questions of an embarrassing nature, which will advertise your profound ignorance. Never have pen, pencil, or paper ready, and always neglect to bring the correct book to class. When asked a question concerning the lesson of the day, be sure to shout, "l don't know: I didn't do my homework." Hold frequent conversations with pupils around you so as to disturb the rest of the class and harass the teacher. Never pass a theme or project in at the designated time. In fact, you might as well forget it entirely. When the teacher tells one of his pet jokes, be sure to utter a dry cackle, and mutter, "ls that supposed to be funny?" Display a preoccupied countenance, and assume an air of ennui, when the teacher is enlightening the class on some important detail of the homework for the next day. To ascertain your flunking the course, a little gum snapping or candy chewing, or perhaps a few barn- yard imitations, would prove of value. Vigorously protest your marks, and attempt a show of righteous indignation that your -Vs and 5's are not l's and 2's. lf these suggestions are meticulously followed, the Hunking of the course is in- evitable, and you will be acclaimed by faculty and student body alike, as the academyls prize failure. flliriam W arrl, '44 We go to school each day, to learn The things we'll sure forget, And when each term-end comes around, We fuss and fume and fret. But when, in later years, we're asked just what we learned at Thayer, We'll tell them that we only learned What we forgot while there. Time was When we could cruise around ln auto cars and such. But now that gas cannot be found VVe really don't care-much! Jllary Rivers, '43 Page 82 . . The BLACK and ORANGE . . 1943 THE DUDE Wally Hickok, young Easterner, grandson of "Wild Bill Hickok," was vacation- ing at a "dude" ranch in the Black Hills of Dakota. The foreman of the ranch, Tex Dallas, entered the room where Wally lay sprawled, dozing, on a couch. Tex drawled: "Wally, the fellows hev bin awondering how yah were with a six-gun ?" "Well, to tell the truth, I never"-- "Never thought you were any good? A grandson of 'Wild Bill' oughta be purty good. The fellows will be awanting to see a sample of yore shooting down at th' corral tonight. I'll tell 'em yu'll be there. l'll see yah then. Adios." After Tex had left, Wally sat pondering for several minutes. Suddenly his face lit up and he vaulted out the open door. The evening meal was over, the cowboys were gathered at the corral, their voices loud in anticipation of seeing an Eastern "dude" make a fool of himself. Three figures entered the scene through the bunk- huuse door- Wally, Tex, and Pedro, the lwex cook. Taking a tin can from his pocket Wally quickly threw it into the air. Six shots rang out in staccato successiong the punctured can dropped to the ground-riddled six times! The stunned cowboys were open-mouthed as they examined the shattered can. Wally strode toward the bunkhouse, his smoking gun jammed in his holster. A smile wreathed his face as he came up to where Pedro stood. Pedro chuckledg "l'm seeing heem happen, eet was wonderfull 'OW come you to hit dat leetle can, hah? l'm knowing dat you nevaire fired a six-gun before een your life." "Wal," said Wally slowly, imitating Pedro's accent, "ze can, she already haw .fix hole in heem!!!"
