in the midst of the toilsome but rewarding hours of our col-
lege life, we should recognize, with a sense of gratitude, the many
benefits of education. By 'being grateful, may we be a more open-
minded, knowledge-seeking group. May we become better leaders
of communities and aid in building a better world.
By seeking higher goals during our four years at F.S.T.C., by
being grateful that our state, community, alumni, parents, and,
most of all, we ourselves can give the best for the cause for which
we are working, we may better appreciate and utilize the best for
The benelits of education are intangible but everlasting. Col-
lege itself acts merely as a priming device for further efforts for
acquiring knowledge. The foundations that we build for ourselves
in order to pass on correct ways of living to others consist of such
virtues as citizenship, unity, sportsmanship, aesthetic appreciation,
creative abilities, brotherhood, and cooperation, which are out-
growths of curricular and extracurricular activities. Developing
emotionally, physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually forms the
complete personality which is so necessary for a successful
Thus, may we portray the 1948-1049 life at F.S.T.C. with
gratitude. May memories be cherished and future hopes fullillled.

DR. ERRGL L. DEARBORN
DV. DQG1' OTWZE' Message
How much of that which we enioy we take as a matter of course, failing to think of
the great effort that has been made in the past by people who thought more of the happi-
ness of future generations than of their own immediate pleasures! Farmington, as a
town, and Farmington State Teachers College, as an institution of higher learning, owe
much to the contributions of such people. The majestic maples and elms which shade
our streets, the expansive lawns and attractive homesg the broad streetsg the fine public
buildings-all speak of the interest of former Farmington citizens in the Farmington of
today. The prized traditions of our collegeg its excellent reputation throughout much of
the country, the many contributions that have been made by its graduates-these indi-
cate the interest of its faculty and students of other days in the continued growth and
added service of this institution, so thoroughly dedicated to the work of teacher education.
It is well that we frequently take time to " count our many blessings H and give
expression to our gratitude for the contributions of those who have come before, of those
with whom we are presently associated, and even for those who give promise of perform-
ing outstanding service in the future. Farmington State Teachers College is certainly
blessed in all three ways, and may we who are here now feel truly gratified and, at the
same time, purpose to make a contribution to our college and to education that will give
future generations of Farmington students even more reason for desiring to express their
Dean of Instruction
The theme, "Gratitude," has a truly great im-
plication for future teachers. It points immediately
to a positive outlook, to a seeking out and an aware-
ness of those things that are right and good. A gen-
eration of teachers with "Gratitude U as a theme can
work marvelous improvements in our society.
For us who are working toward the goal of be-
ing responsible teachers, the following quotation is
" Two kinds of gratitude: the sudden kind
We feel for what we take, the larger kind
We feel for what we give."
This implies that we must be aware of our needs,
our goals, and of what situations we shall experience
in our college life. Here at college, we should express
our gratitude "for what we takef' But most im-
portant, as we search for truth, promotion of good
will, and democratic behavior, will be the " larger
Do you and I give freely of our time and experi-
ences and feel that we have a great job to do as teach-
ers in guiding American youth toward " responsible "
behavior in our way of living?

In our daily concern with the material and tem-
poral, we often lose sight of permanent values. We
would do well to remind ourselves constantly of the
many fine things that Farmington olfers us.
Only as we feel and express gratitude for the
opportunities that life here gives us, do we enrich and
deepen our capacity for new experiences.
In this my first year at Farmington State Teach-
ers College, I feel grateful each day for the oppor-
tunity of working with young people. It is such an
experience that makes life challenging and brings a
deep satisfaction that is the reward for those in the
teaching profession. For you who are nearing your
goal and will soon take your place in the ranks of
one of the noblest professions of our times, it is my
hope that you Find the same joy in working with your
students and fellow teachers that has been mine at
F. S. T. C. Then you can say with me, "I am truly
grateful I am a teacherf'

This form of government, now in its second year, is a revised Student-Faculty Co-operative
Government. This plan was initiated in order to center the government of the school in the
hands of the presidents of all the recognized school organizations on the campus.
At the head of the government are the student officers who are elected each spring by
the student body. '
The Co-ordinating Council is the main council in the organization, and its membership
includes the four Student Government officers already mentioned, the presidents of all recognized
college organizations, the presidents of the four classes, four appointed faculty members, and the
president of the college, who is an ex-officio member. This group studies student problems and
appoints committees to be in charge of such things as the school calendar, class elections, social
functions, charity drives, and other projects of interest.
To attain the best possible co-operation between the administration and the student body,
the council feels free to make recommendations for changes in school policies or for improve-
ments around the campus when they seem to be for the good of all.

cil. The other members of this-committee are the student treasurers and faculty advisers of all
classes and of all student organizations receiving allocations from the student activity fee.

The freshman class has enrolled this year one hundred Fifteen members, thirty-four of whom
are home economics students, and eighty-one, elementary-junior high.
We took great interest in the musical organizations, and many became members of the glee
club, choir, band, and orchestra.
Several of the students took part in the comic opera, " The Chimes of Normandyf' and many
are eagerly awaiting participation in the three-act play to be sponsored by the Plays and Players
Although amateurs, some of us found journalism to our taste and joined the staffs of the
Mirror and Ejesteeo.
Several of the freshman boys starred in basketball, while all of the cheerleaders except two
Both boys and girls became active in the Outing Club.
On February 12, in conjunction with the Outing Club which held its annual Winter Carni-
val, we sponsored a Coronation Ball with a Valentine motif.
We, the freshmen, feel that this has been a prosperous year, -and we are eagerly looking
forward to the next three years here at Farmington State Teachers College.

The sophomore class returned this fall with seventy-three students. Fifty-four were en-
rolled in the elementary-junior high course and nineteen in the home economics course.
A joint meeting of both departments was held at the beginning of the school year to elect
ollicers and make plans for the alumni dance, which completed the activities of Home-Coming
Day in October. Keefe's orchestra helped to make this event a successful one.
The class chose as its faculty adviser Mr. Robert Bigelow.
As in the previous year, we entered into many different activities, including the musical
organizations, Plays and Players, the Mirror and Ejeszeeo staffs, and many of the clubs and
campus committees. One of our class, Wilhelmina Knowlen, was chosen editor of EgE5l6C0.
On the Field of athletics, we also starred. Five of our class were members of the 'varsity
basketball team, while still others played on the I.V. team. The cheerleading squad boasted
of two members of our class. -
We, the sophomore class, pride ourselves in having taken an active part in all school activi-
ties, and we look forward to the year to come.

which was attended by many. The theme, "Sleighride Frolicf, was carried out in favors and
Many of us are eagerly looking forward to our student teaching which starts this year on a
new plan whereby we teach nine weeks this year and nine weeks our senior year. We have
had the need for more teachers strongly impressed on us, and we are ready to try to prepare
ourselves so that we can help fill this need.
We, the class of 1950, strive to prepare ourselves better for a future of teaching.

Both the home economics and the elementary-junior high departments of the senior class
held a joint meeting and elected officers at the opening of the school year.
Throughout the year, the activities of the senior class have been numerous. The home eco-
nomics girls have enjoyed experiences in the home management house and in student teaching
centers throughout Maine, while the elementary-junior high students kept the home fires burning.
The class has been well represented in college activities, such as Plays and Players, -musical
organizations, student-faculty government, sports, and school publications.
A highlight of the year's activities was the graduation dance held in the gymnasium during
commencement week and sponsored by the senior class.
Living at the home economics cottage
comprises nine interesting weeks of the senior
year. The freshmen look forward to this ex-
perience, and the seniors never forget it.
The philosophies of peaceful and demo-
cratic living are realized by cooperative W0-rk
among the girls. They practice efficiency in all
duties such as nursing, cooking, Waiting on
tables, general managerial duties, and house-
keeping. All skills and techniques learned in
this experience of group living can be practi-
cally applied in both classroom and home.
Improvements in the cottage this year have
included a new freezing unit, new kitchen cur-
tains, inlaid linoleums on two floors, and addi-
tions to the book collection for the library.
The values of these instructions are guided
by Miss Helen Wehling. Also aiding in the
utilization of all theories is the presence of a
lovable infant. '

the Classes? VVe have changed the editorial page so that it now has five columns instead of
the usual four. Nearly all of our issues have included either an insert of one page or two extra

Activities of the Home Economics Club this year have been conducted under the coun-
sel of Miss Helen Wehling and Miss Iulia Ksionzyk.
' The formal initiation of the largest Home Economics freshman class to be admitted to
the college was an impressive candle-light ceremony.
Betty Connors and Virginia Stevens represented the club at the Home Economics Work-
shop at Keene, New Hampshire. Plans are now being discussed for the workshop of next year,
which will be held in Maine.
Among the several interesting guest speakers was Ruth Webster, a student from Nasson
College, who gave a report on the National Home Economics Associations Conference that she
attended last summer.
In addition to the regular monthly meetings, the club has had a fashion show and silver
tea, a welfare clothing drive, two picnics at Craig's Ledge, and the annual spring banquet.

This year, the Agnes P. Mantor Chapter of the Future Teachers of America has under-
taken a more varied program of activities. The First event of the year took place in October
when this organization, in collaboration with the other F. T. A. chapters of the state, took part
in a conference at the State Teachers' Convention.
Week-end entertaining of students from various high schools throughout the state was an-
other major activity, as was the newly formulated plan of exchange students. The teachers
colleges of Plymouth, New Hampshire and Fitchburg, Massachusetts cooperated with us in
carrying out this activity.
In February, the annual banquet and initiation were held jointly.
ln the spring, a Conference-Day was held for all high school students within a radius of
seventy-five miles. The object of this clay was to show high school students something about
college life and to acquaint them with the college campus.

There are two kinds of membership: the active and the inactive. Those in the active
group take part in presenting the monthly meetings, and the members are assigned to the com-

ness, functional growth, publicity, and hospitality. The inactive members are invited to meet-
ings, but they do not participate on different committees.

The Newman Club, under the direction of its officers, has had a successful year. It has
sponsored a program that has been both social and religious.
Its Communion Breakfast was well attended, and it was voted to have this an annual
project. Mr. Neil Sullivan, superintendent of schools of Wilton, was the guest speaker.
Delegates were sent to the University of Maine, where the State Conference of Newman
Clubs was held. They brought back new ideas and plans for the future of the club.
The second meeting of the year, open to the whole school, was held in Mallett Hall,
where Frank Hilferty, faculty adviser of the club, entertained with records from his collec-

combined efforts of Miss Virginia Mills, our new adviser, Miss Ruby Blaine, the music director,
the musical organizations, and Plays and Players, represented the policy instituted two years
ago of presenting a bi-yearly operetta.
Following the operetta, we initiated six new members into our organization, since they
had earned their eligibility points by working in productions.
The new policy of two initiations a year, one in February and one in Iune, was adopted.
Two chapel programs were presented. One consisted of a talk by Norma Littlefield ex-
plaining how she earned her membership entirely through backstage work. The other was a
comedy version and parody of " Iulius Caesar," presented to the faculty and students in February.
A three-act play was presented in the spring, this completing our activities of the year.

for the college. lt endeavors to select programs that will supply entertainment as well as educa-
The student council body usually elects four or five persons to serve on this committee,
and their duties commence at the beginning of the new year. This group functions up to the
month of Februaryg then it is relieved by a newly elected committee which carries through
the work the remainder of the school year.
With the aid of a faculty advisory group, this committee investigates all possible sources
for varied chapel presentations for Wednesdays and Fridays. The several school organizations,
besides outside speakers, are contacted for these programs. This year We have had several
interesting presentations in the gymnasium by Mallett School groups. These have proved both
entertaining and educational.

The Phi Mu Sigma Sorority started its year by working with the other sororities in school
in sponsoring a dance during Orientation week.
In October, Five new members were initiated into the sorority. .
Everyone worked on the Christmas project for the state children. Toys and clothes were
collected from the different stores in town. The members wrapped the gifts in Christmas wrap-
pings and gave them to a social worker who distributed them to the children for Christmas.

ln the tall of 1937, Zeta Chapter moved into its own house and, since then, it has devel
oped into one of the strongest chapters of our national fraternity. The chapter has had trying
times, especially during the war years, but, through close co-operation among its loyal members
and friends, it managed to survive.
Today, an old fraternity member would see many line improvements that have been
made both in the house and within the chapter itself. Much praise should be bestowed upon
our loyal, energetic members of both yesterday and today who have volunteered their time and
attention to bring about these constructive improvements.
Our chapter added to its national strength when it initiated twenty-two new members in
the fall. .
Along social lines, our fraternity played an active part during the year. It held various
activities-informal sings, open-house parties, dances, and Wiener roasts. All these helped in
promoting good-will among our college students.
Once again, our fraternity sponsored the annual Franklin County grammar school basket-
ball tournament, which created the customary amount of interest and enthusiasm.

One of the largest organizations of our college is the Women's Athletic Association. lts
varied schedule serves not only as a means of recreation and development of physical and mental
health but also as a teaching function.
The student-faculty volley ball game was our First function during Orientation Week in
A play day was planned for the first Saturday of the year, but rain prevented this activity
from taking place.
The remainder of the program throughout the year consisted of three major sports and
several minor sports, such as tenekoit, volley ball, shuffleboard, and archery. The program also
included special consideration for the physically handicapped and for those not able to partici-
pate in a rigorous program of sports.
The fall months brought soccer into the spotlight. This year's championship was awarded
to the freshmen fDivisions I and HID. Those not participating in soccer mastered skills in
archery or tennis.
At the end of the season, shuffleboard and newcomb tournaments were played off in the
minor sports Held.
As winter approached, all thoughts shifted to basketball. After several weeks of con-
centrated practice, the interclass tournaments started. The girls in the physical education de-
partment took a local ollicial's test in February. Those who passed are now qualified to oflici-
ate in inter-scholastic games in this vicinity.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there were skating at George's rink and skiing at the Titcomb
Memorial ski tow.
As spring approached, our thoughts turned to softball. We practiced, formed teams, and
During the school year, we held a couple of play days in Farmington and attended one
ourselves. During the first part of the winter, the annual high school play day was held-the
main theme stressed at this time being "interpretation of new rules."
In March we went to a University of Maine play day which proved to be most educa-
tional and recreational. In the spring, we invited the Gorham girls to Farmington.
These play days gave us a chance to acquaint the high school groups with the college
program, and they provided us opportunity to acquaint ourselves with other college athletic
Under the direction of the Women's Athletic Association, a capable cheer leading section
was formed to promote school spirit.
The final activity was the annual june breakfast, at which time the new oflicers for the
following year were introduced and athletic awards were given to those fulfilling the require-
ments of the organization.

The Men's Athletic Association, with a larger subsistence than it had last year, dropped
both cross-country and baseball from its schedule.
President " Bud " Rand felt that more could be accomplished if all of the state allow-
ance were put into the " big " sport-basketball. The move, at First, was met with disap-
proval, hut, after several voting sessions, it was finally approved.
By dropping the fall and spring sports, the Men's A. A. was able to buy an amplifying
system for use at home basketball games. The amplifier will also be used as a ITICHDS of HHHHCC,
as plans are already being made to have it available for rent.
The A. A. surprised many with its announcement of a tentative program for a football
team for next year.
