Some days they give a quiz, Other days it's a test, But why argue with a teacher ? For they always know what's best. Somehow they always keep you busy, But the subjects are quite fair, Geometry, Physics, English and French, They keep me in despair. When I think of all the work, There is nothing better for me. But to go to school for another year, And then join the Navy and go to sea. Paul Leonard ' 50 3 PHYLLE ARLENE BROOKS "Phyllis" "Modesty is the citadel of beauty and of virtue."

The Freshman Class received their final initiation to high school life. Ronellow Moore was Master of Ceremonies with Mr. Gibson serving as faculty advisor. Arlene Luce exhibited hidden talent in a harmonica solo. D. Day demonstrated the method of obtaining the latest hair style with Jeanette Upham as his model. Gordy Grinnell received a few bumps as he won over Sammy Watts in a handicap race. Gerold Torrey and Kenneth Bartlett resembled rabbits when they emerged from their marshmallow-fight. "Mutt" Payson was unsuccessful in proposing to "Ve1zie" Savage. She refused to submit to his pleas. Rachel Spear was a charming mother as she fed Buddy Williams coke from a nursing bottle. After being provided with suitcases filled with clothes, Otis Robbinson and Ralph Harford engaged in a race to see who could dress and parade around the gym quickest. Harford was the winner. Dicky Goff and Herbert Harding, dressed in old-fashioned bathing suits, were sole con- testants in a beauty contest. By choice of the audience, Goff was proclaimed winner. Suddenly disaster struck. Kenneth Bartlet "dropped dead" on the stage. Ernest Norwood served as min- ister in the solemn funeral service that followed. Faye Robbins proved to be a good sport when she was target for raw eggs dropped by a Sophomore standing on a stepladder. Lucky for her that none of them hit her open mouth. Duets between each act added greatly to the enjoyment. l C Clzrwtmaa Semi-gormai Our annual Christmas dance went over great this year. It was greatly enjoyed by everyone who attended. The Seniors did an excellent job of decorating the gym with red and green stream- ers, which formed a canopy over the entire room. There was a huge Christmas tree in the cen- ter of the floor and small trees in each corner. The gym was lighted by the Christmas tree bulbs. Everyone danced to Norman Moody's orchestra, which was very good. The committee was: Barbara Calderwood, leading the Senior class in decorating. The Junior class, under Buster Knight did the advertising. Sylvia Farris and Elaine Robbins were in charge of the refreshments, while Duane Rowell and Bliss Fuller were in charge of checking the coats by the Sophomore class. The Freshman class, under Gordon Grinnell were in charge of selling tickets. This dance was a big success this year, both socially and financially with Mr. Gibson being faculty advisor. Raising Money fn Senior Claw The Senior Class hasn't been able to raise tdo much money this year for our trip or grad- uation. Although this has been a poor year, we have done a number of things. As Juniors we had our class play on which we did very well. When we became Seniors we had to give it a hard thought and we had our Senior Class Play in the fall. During the winter we had a number of food sales and good suppers which received much favorable comment, We sold candy and soda at school every day and also at basketball games. We want to thank the student body, faculty, parents of the students and other citizens in the town that have helped us out. To every other class that graduates from U.H.S., we wish the best of luck in their ways of earning money. 14 SEATED: Left to Right: D. Harman, I, Luce, D, Ripley, R.

"Just a day for fishing," Tom had said when he awoke that morning. Tom was a small wizened-faced boy of about thirteen years, freckled, towheaded and barefooted. He was wearing a dirty calico shirt and torn britches supported by one suspen- der, the other flapping freely from his hip. His father was dead and Tom's mother made a scant living by taking in sewing and doing odd jobs for the village women. After eating his breakfast he had imrnediately set about gathering his fishing gear to- gether. There were plenty of worms in his mother's flower garden and an old tobacco can proved excellent as a bait bucket. Bidding his mother goodby and calling his dog, Bits, he commenced walking lazily across the old cow pasture. The brook could be reached by a short cut across the pasture, walking a piece down an old road and cutting through another pasture. The best fishing grounds were near the falls, so Bits excitedly led the way upstream. Alternately panting and whistling, the happy boy tried valiantly to keep up with him. When they arrived at the falls, Tom made himself comfortable in the soft green grass near the brook's edge. He baited his hook with a large worm and cast his line below the falls. Bits barked excitedly, and Tom urged him to be quiet. Not long after the cast was made, Tom's line jerked with a hard pull and a flash of gold shot above the water. Anxiously Tom began reeling in the big fish, which was now churn- ing up the swirling waters. Even Bits helped by taking Tom by the seat of his overalls and pulling with all his dog strength. After a hardfive-minute fight, Tom and Bits landed the huge fish. It was a beautiful king salmon and Tom measured it with tembling hands. "It's thirty inches, Bits," Tom exclaimed, "now Mon can have a good hearty meal with no skimping," "Say, that's a nice fish you've got there," a loud rasping voice boomed. "What?" Tom, startled, turned around and before him stood a fat, pompous man, decked out in the most elaborate fishing equipment money could buy. "How much will you take for it, boy?" the voice boomed again. "It-it's not for sale," Tom retorted, angry because his secret fishing ground has been intruded upon. "I'll give you five bucks for it, son," came a voluntary proposition from the stranger, "think of what you can buy with five dollars." Thoughts of the new catcher's rnitt Tom had always wanted flashed through his mind. If he had a new mitt, the fellows would let him be on the team and wou1dn't make fun of his being poor anymore. "Come, come, boy, I haven't all night," thundered the man, "here's your five dollars, now give me the fish." Again the thoughts of the mitt went through his mind and then he made his decision. "Yeah mister, I-I'll take your offer, here's the fish." "That's a smart kid," the stranger boomed out again, "thanks and so-long." The heavy man went tramping downstream. When he disappeared around a bend, Tom called to Bits and they both headed towards town. Running through the rough pastures and down the road left Tom breathless when he reached town, But not so much but what he immediately raced to the general store. He stopp- ed before entering and gazed through the store window at the mitt. Enthusiastically Tom called to Bits, " Look Bits, there it is! Just think it'll soon be mine and then I'll be top catcher on the team. Wait until Mom sees it, won't she be proud?" At the mention of his mother, Tom's thoughts immediately changed. "Golly, Bits, I for- got all about Mom and that big dinner we were going to give her today!" Z0 Tom stood there still looking at the mitt, but his face was sober now. Tom, deep in his thoughts suddenly broke out loud, "Gosh Bits, I'd still like to have that mitt though, but I guess I'd better think about Mom. After all I'm too good for that team anyway. I could play circles around them with my old mitt, even." He entered the store and reluctantly purchased with his five dollars groceries that would make a good meal for his mother. He had difficulty in holding back the tears when he quietly called, "Come on Bits, Mom is waiting for us and her dinner." Tom and Bits started trudging slowly home, neither one feeling as gay as the rest of the world sounded. But one in his heart was feeling proud that he had proved himself a man. You could not say Tom glittered, but he was worth pure gold. Vera Wentworth '49 np lie Big Chance The Xgirl sitting in the big spacious room was beginning to feel nervous. Why didn't they hurry up! I-Iadn't she rehearsed this enough? Why should she be nervous now? She wanted a cigarette, and leaning over, she asked the man who had been sitting across from her. With shaking fingers she lighted a cigarette. She could scream! if She inhaled on the cigarette and felt calmer. She asked the man sitting across from her fthat man with the perpetual smile, what the matter was. "A fuse blew out," he answered, still smiling. "Oh why don't they hurry," she yelled in a harsh voice. "Be calm now, Mrs. Kramer, it won't be long now." She sat there and let her mind drift back to when she had worked in the department store and had received S15 a week. She had saved half of each pay check by skipping break- fast, spending a dime for dinner and going on a splurge of spending a whole quarter on her supper. She had always wanted to be an actress and had done a little acting by imitating the big stars like Garbo and Hepburn, Everyone told her she had real talent. It took her a long time but she finally got that precious S500 to get to Hollywood. She went to all the casting offices and left her picture and address. They told her they would let her know if anything turned up but she never heard from them. They got mad because she was so persistent. It wasn't long before she was right back where she had started from, working in a de- partment store, going without her meals and never having any new clothes. lt was at the department store that she first met Morris Kramer. He was fat and ugly looking and she cou1dn't stand him. But he was rich and knew the right people to get her into the movies. So she started running around with him. He was a real estate agent and said he was the best of friends with all the big shots in Hollywood. One morning she woke up with a big head and a husband, sheawas now Mrs. Morris Kramer. It was then that she learned the nearest he had ever been the the Hollywood big shots was the tenth row back in the movie house! She got angry then: and really blew up! She told him what she thought of him! "What do you want to get int.: the movies for, baby?" he had said "you and I can get along okay together." Oh yes, she had really got hooked but not for long if she could help it. When she heard of his insurance, it made her dizzy just to think of all that money. You could really go places if you had that much. 515,000 dollars! It scared her when she began to wish that something would happen to him. 21 But here she was at last, her big chance. She knew just what she was going to do. She would face the camera and say her lines perfect. But she was beginning to get the jitters again. She couldn't remember her lines. They were all ready now. She took a last puff from her cigarette and with shaking fingers she stubbed it out in the ashtray. "Mrs, Kramer, you understand don't you, that anything you say here can be used against you?" "Yes," she answered meekly, not at all the way she had planned. "All right, Mrs. Kramer," the district attorney boomed, and with his best news-reel smile, "tell us how you killed your husband." Phyllis Wentworth '50 euenge ill: Murder The story I am about to tell is a story that took place in a little town on the West Coast named Evensburg. It involves two main characters, John Field and Henry Jones, who were at one time partners in a profitable restaurant business, until one day Henry was taken in by the police and questioned for rearranging the books. Henry was proven guilty and sentenced to eight years in prison. As the story begins it is now ten years after this event. A sharp and loud shot rang out on the busy streets of Evensburg. It came from the di- rection of J ohn's Restaurant. Everybody immediately rushed toward the place, but were stop- ped by policemen who algo had arrived at the scene. Entering the restaurant, Lieutenant Morgan found the body of John Field lying on the floor, he had been murdered. By whom and for what no one had the least idea. John was always a respectable citizen and seemed to be liked by everyone. A After the crowd had left, Lieutenant Morgan ordered the body taken to the morgue. It was impossible to have a funeral because as far as anyone knew, John had no relatives, at least not in this section of the country. Detective Moore was assigned to the case and investigations began. The detective learn- ed by checking with the police files that John Field and a person narned Henry .Tones had once been partners in a profitable restaurant business, until one day Henry had been taken in by police on the grounds of rearranging the books. He was convicted and sent to jail for eight years. Detective Moore also learned that Henry Jones had been released from jail two years before and, for all anyone knew, he was living a respectable life in a little town about twenty miles from Evensburg. This seemed to be the only possible lead of the killer. Maybe, for some unknown rea-son, Henry had not liked John and had decided to kill him. Henry Jones was picked up a couple of days later. Upon questioning from the police, he said he had been at work, but had no alibi to prove the fact. Although the police still held some suspicions about Henry's story, they released him with the order that he stay around town un- til this business was cleared up. Although Henry didn't know it, Lieutenant Morgan had sent Detective Moore to trail him constantly just in case he should unconsciously reveal any condemning facts, Trailing a man for days is no easy job, but Moore did an excellent job in keeping within sight or quick reach of his opponent. On the third day of trailing Henry, the detective saw that Henry seemed to be getting quite nervous. He hung out in saloons, and drank most of the time. Days went by and still they had no evidence against Henry Jones for the shooting of his partner, John. However, the police were quite certain now that he had been the murderer, be- came as the days wore by it was telling on him. He was just about a complete nervous wreck. Why he had committed the murder still remained unsolved. ZZ Detective Moore finally received the break he was waiting for when, on the evening of February l0, 1941, two shots rang 'out in Henry's apartment. He immediately summoned the police and broke into the apartment. There on the floor lay the body of Henry Jones with a .45 revolver laying beside him. However, as was supposed at first, Henry was not dead but very seriously sick. I-Ie was removed to the General Hospital where he received very careful attention. After about a month of treatment he had recovered enough to be questioned by the police. When questioned, he broke down and told the whole story in front of the police. It seemed that about ten years ago his partner John, had rearranged the books and as he was the secretary, he was convicted of it, leaving a very prosperous business to John. He said he had hated John for doing this and, while in jail, he had planned how he could kill him and get away with it. He said he had spent months planning it, but that he had not planned on one thing, his own peace of mind. Outside of that it would have been a perfect crime. This all goes to show "you can't right one wrong by committing another." Henry Jones was proven guilty by a jury and sentenced to jail for life. Donald Cramer ' Sl 23 ournament The lights were shining brightly, Across the basketball floor. Our hearts were thumping lightly As we thought, "What'll be the score?" The referee's whistle is blowingg The game is about to begin. The townspeople's hearts are glowing, For they all expect us to win. The first quarter is now over, And we take a look at the slate. We're ahead, but not "in the clover," For the score is ten to eight. At the half we still were leading By a very slim margin of three. "Let us keep that lead," we're pleading: "Let us take home a victory." In the third quarter we lost our showing: We just couldn't seem to click, And the officials' whistles kept blowing, Those referees really were strict. The minutes are rapidly flying, We need just four points to win. We keep on frantically trying But our shots just won't go in. The final gun of the game now bellows, Our opponents have that margin of three! We're a disappointed group of fellows As we leave the Armory. This is my last year of high school ball, And I could not restrain a tear As my teammates began to cheer and call "Oh, well! We'll do it next year." Robert Day '49 Z4 - he . When at night the wise owl hoots Out in the woods so thick and dark, Srnall creatures run for safety's shelterg ' Even a fox will quiet his bark. The owl is master of the forest, Everyone obeys his say. He swiftly glides from tree to tree Until the dawning of the day. After awhile he starts his hunt, Searching for some tasty prey: Field mice who do see his shadow Scatter and scamper from his way. The little ones who are not so fortunate Feel the clutch of his talons strongg They are lifted high in the clear, cold darkness, When the huge bird attacks, he seldom goes wrong. Older animals tell their wee ones, Whenever far from home they stray, "Be sure to get shelter before the nightfall Or the owl will come and take you away." So when you travel along a woodsroad And hear the foxes cease their howl, Wait awhile in the silent shadows: Maybe you'1l see the majestic owl. Sylvia Farris ' 51 ur gint Jaya ah union .High On our first day at Union High, We were so scared we wanted to hide, All we Freshmen stood aside, While the upper-classmen strutted with pride, Not daring to whisper, not ask any questions, We picked up our books, and studied our lessons. The third week we all did dread, With Freshman Reception night ahead, They dolled us up as they had said, And then we wished that we were dead. If they had needed a very good clown, We could have gone right to town. 25 They painted a checker board upon our face, Marched us far at a rapid pace. Our feet were srnarting and burning like fire, And we were glad when we could retire. But we didn't mind, the Sophomores paid, too, They had to stay late after school. Now all these days have gone past, We're very sorry they cou1dn't last. But next year we'll be very cunning, And make those Freshmen look quite stunning This year has been loads of fun, From starting whistle to final gun. Arlene Luce '52 flag ellealqal With our eyes stinging 'cause the stove smokes, We wait a minute for the few slow pokes. Then starting play practice, feeling silly, We think the play will be a "dilly." To begin with, Bus forgets to snore, Then the whole place is in an uproar. But just as the coach has settled us down, People show up from all over town. This is nothing, compared to the next, Which can not be found in any text. We took three chairs to make a couch, And they always cause someone to holler, And for the pants on the floor, you'll never Cause all we could find in that awful mess, Was a pillow, old and badly battered, But at that rehearsal nothing mattered. When Eddie calls for Ann, his girl, Miss Norwood's hair begins to curl. "Speak louder, Eddie," is all you can hear, But Eddie's loud voice doesn't seem to be near. As for J'oe's singing, I've heard there's none fine From here way down to Carolina. But when trying to sing, while waiting for Paul, He's just as quiet as a basketball. From way back, at least since last December, Paul can never seem to remember Which is left and which is right, Cause he exits wrong every night. Miss Norwood is doing her very best, And I'm sure the cast can do the rest, To make this play turn out swell, And help us make much money, as well.

Z8 5054 , J3a.4fzet6all Although four members of last year's championship team were lost, Coach Kenoyer took the boys in hand and rolled out a bang-up ball club. They got off to a rocky start as Thomaston edged them Z8-27. The Kenoyermen then snap- ped back to whack Rockport 39-Z8 and trampled Waldoboro 42-23. At Camden the Union team met with grief as they were soundly whipped 37-Z1. In the return engagement with Thomaston, the Eagles held out and won 34-30. A The boys took their next three games by big magins as they laced Erskine 54-243 South Bristol 72-293 and Appleton 55-16. Union took over the sunbirth of the Bulwer League by edging Wiscasset 37-34. This game was witnessed by the largest crowd of the season. Waldoboro then came to Union to avenge the beating they received earlier but were turned back Z7-24. The Eagles then beat Rockport 39-26 and ran through a heavily favored Camden five 38-31 Erskine was then pasted by the Kenoyermen to make it nine wins in a row with the score being 56-23. In an important league game the Wiscasset Redskins walloped Union 44-25. This tied them with Union for this division of the League. Two more wins were chalked up as Appleton and South Bristol were whipped 44-Z8 and 55-Z4 respectively. Because of an excellent record Union was asked to take part in the small school tourna- ment at Lewiston, There they were edged by New Glocester 43-39. At the play-off for the championship of the Eastern Division of the Bulwer League Union rode to victory as they defeated Wiscasset 44-40 in overtime. Union High School and Litchfield Academy, winner of the western division, met at Cony High Gym in Augusta to decide who would have the trophy this year. It was one of Union's bad nights and the outcome was disappointing. Litchfield won 39-Z9. League Standings Eastern Division Union ................ 6-1 Wiscasset .......... 5-Z Rockport ........... Z-4 6 South Bristol...... 0- 96111 Jiaieball Sloppy fielding was chiefly the cause of the two defeats which Union High's fall baseball team suffered at the hands of Rockport last September. At Rockport in the opener Ralph Harford, Freshman right hander, twirled a five two hitter but, because of poor fielding, lost the game 5-Z. Union out-hit the winners in this six inning contest. In the return game at Union, Harford once again was the victim of several fielding lapses, both in the infield and outfield. The Union nine led 5-3 but lost the game, while rain threaten- ed in the last inning 6-5. 29 girls lsoflbalf quad FRONT ROW: Left to Right: F. Austin, V. Savage, V. Wentworth, P. Wentworth, P.

The girls' basketball season, although not impressive in the ratio of wins and losses is considered quite successful in light of the fact that we were mostly "greenies." We had a lot of fun and the close scores testify to some exciting games. goul Shooting In the High School foul tournament, held during the month of March, Buster Knight, '50, and Marilyn Payson, '49, emerged as the winners. Knight, regular center on the boys' team, hooped 38 of his first 40 attempts and followed this up with seven of his last ten to wind up with a 45-50 record, giving him a percentage rating of ,900. Marilyn Payson scored Z8 out of 50 to win the girls' honor. Her percentage was .560. Runners up to Knight were Neal I-Iilt, Bob Day, and Bob Leonard, while nearest to Marilyn were Phyllis Wentworth and Ann Calderwood. Earlier in the year in another contest Bob Day won the honor of participating in the State Foul Shooting tournament held in Waterville late in February. 31 Cheerleaders FRONT ROW: Le!! to Right: Sandra llnrine, '53: Grace Calderwood, '53.
