MILTON REYNOLDS "Milt" has been a faithful workerand a grand friend to all of us at B, H. S. We have appreciated his hard work on so many winter mornings! He has also served the other two school buildings at the same time. Realizing what a big job this is, and all the labor it involves, we want to show our grateful appreci- ation and thanks. During the latter part of this school year when Mr. Reynolds became ill, we discovered what a vital part he had had in our program. We missed him very much, and we are certainly glad that he is back with us again. N. Macdougall '45 Pk Pls Pls PK OUR B. H. S. LIBRARY In the past few years at Bingham High School we have added many new books to our library. The town makes a certain appropriation each year, and out of this our library books are pur- chased. We are installing a new sys- tem called the "Dewey Decimal Sys- tem". The purpose of this new system is to help students get used to librar- ies. Even though our library is small, if we use the Dewey Decimal System, we shall feel "at home" in larger li- braries. The first .part of the system is to give each book a call number accord- ing to the classification under which it comes. These headings are : C13 General Works, which consists of books on library science, encycloped- ias, newspapers, and general periodi- calsg C25 Philosophy, classified as books pertaining to the human mind, Q33 Religion is compromised of books on all the different kinds of worship, C41 Sociology, which includes books on the study of humanity, Q51 Lan- guage, consisting of dictionaries, gram- mars of all languages, Q61 Pure Sci- ence, made up of books on mathemat- ics, astronomy, chemistry, and botany, Q71 Useful Arts, which includes books pertaining to daily living, C81 Fine Arts and Recreation, made up of books on landscape gardening, architecture, painting, music, and amusementsg C95 Literature, which contains books on poetry, essays, plays, oratory, and the like, and C101 History, which includes geography, travel, and biography. Fiction comes under a separate di- vision and is listed alphabetically by authors. Each book is marked with the first two letters of the author's last name and with the call number. The vol- umes of a set or duplicate copies are marked with the same call number. The books are arranged on separate shelves, the histories in one section, biographies in another, fiction in an- other, until all the books are grouped according to classification, Each book in the library, except fic- tion, has 3 cards which are filed or catalogued. One is called the author's card, another the title, and the third, the subject card. On the author card is first, the name of the author, next a little about the book, and the title and number of the book. On the title card there is first the title, then a sentence about the book, the author's name, and the number. The title cards are BOREAS 7 arranged in alphabetical order to make them easy to find. For the mak- ing of the subject cards the table of contents is examined to find the pro- per subjects, and references and cross references are made. Some books re- quire only one subject card, while others may need several. This system, we know, sounds rath- er complicated at first, but we feel that as we begin to use it, we shall understand it beter. The way the cards are going to be arranged and also the order in which the books are put on the shelves will make it easier to find the book for which you are looking. We feel that this system is a good one, and that, as our library grows from year to year, more of the pupils are going to use and enjoy it. Now let's all try to understand the new sys- tem of our school library and then use it! G. Goff '45 lk 1 1 K LET'S DO MORE READING How much reading do you do? What is your answer to this? We can never do too much reading so far as worth-while books are concerned. Very few of us realize the educa- tion a person can obtain in reading. Books increase our vocabularies to a great extent. They help us get ac- quainted with life itself, and with great writers. We learn the author's view on life and his experiences. If reading is taken seriously. The statement from Bacon "Reading mak- eth a full man" is true. The reader is full of ideas and his life is full of riches. Bacon's advice on how to read is also valuable. He suggests that you only "taste" some books, "swallow" others, and some few should be chew- ed and digested. The modern novel would be one to taste or skim through. Books with more depth in them should be read with more attention, while books of great value should be read wholly, and be given much thought and then reread occasionally. It has been said that movies have been more popular than reading. If this is true, something should be done about itg for something very precious has gone out of American life. We should consider many things. From what sources have many of the best movies originated? The answer to this is books. Stories have to be written for all movies. Fine as a movie may be, it can never be an adequate substitute for reading, We should be interested in the author of the stories behind the movies, and how the story came about. Enjoyment as well as finding an ed- ucation, can be found in reading. A better pastime or hobby could not be found. A person who becomes ac- quainted with books in early life will never be without a companion in later years when many of his friends have gone. Why don't you find out for your- self and read more? J.

STUDENT The purpose of the Student Council is to support and sponsor all school activities that are given by the school. There are three representatives from each class, two being chosen by vote, and the third member being the president. The council was not so active this year as in the past, on account of the fact that it was started so late in the year. Our first meeting was held Sept. 26, 1944, and the following oflicers ll' COUNCIL were elected: President, Gerald Berry3 Vice-President, Nellie Macdougallg Secretary, Alvida Manchesterg Treas- urer, Sandra Keeneg and Faculty Ad- visor, Principal Perry. We planned to have a treasure hunt and Weenie roast for the following Friday night. The committee for the hunt were: Nel- lie Macdougall, Geneva Goff, and Al- vida Manchester. We voted to have yearly dues of S2 and tickets were to be bought before November l. We also 12 BOREAS STUDENT COUNCIL PICTURE Standing: J. Hunnewell, R. Quigley, M. Young, C. Brackett, W. O'Brien, A.

At our next meeting, held October 6, we voted for two one-dollar tickets for dues instead of one ticket a year. A committee was chosen to plan a schedule for assembly programs. Assemblies were to be held once a week, and would be given by the following groups: Student Council, 1 3 Classes, 45 Outside Speakers, 43 Junior High, 13 Departments, English etc., 33 and Faculty, 2. The committee chosen to make out the program was Ruth Boynton, Allen Goff, Gloria Cro- teau, and Geraldine Begin. It was also voted that the Principal should take care of all the bills. On November 7, 1944, another meeting was held to choose delegates for the Student Coun- cil Convention to be held at Cony High School, Augusta, November 18. Dele- gates were: Gerald Berry, William O'Brien, Nellie Macdougall, and Glor- ia Croteau. We voted 351.00 for regis- tration fee of delegates. The delegates did not attend the convention due to the gas and tire shortage. On January 15, 1945, We held an- other meeting, in which we decided that the contestants of the carnival should be required to have activity tickets to enter. The Student Council supported and sponsored the winter carnival and the carnival ball. The carnival was held at the school house and at Baker Mountain. The ball was held at the Grange Hall. Both were very success- ful. ITERARY IT HAPPENED TO OUR SON "No, it can't be true!" exclaimed Mrs. Duplesea as she read through the telegram just handed to her by her husband. "It couldn't have hap- pened to our 'Mike'." It was true, though, and no one could deny it. It had really happened to their own lit- tle 'Mike'. Wishing to calm his wife, Mr. Du- plesea replied, as he grasped the tele- gram from her hand to read himself, "It appears to be so, dear, although l can hardly believe it myself." Glanc- ing from the telegram in his hands, Mr. Duplesea saw tears in his wife's eyes. He did not have to ask her to know what she was thinking. She was remembering-remembering as far back as the day they had come to America from Switzerland in 1918. They had been especially happy to get to America. After living there a few months, they had decided to be- come naturalized and later were A- emricans and very proud of it. The first few years in America had been hard. They had had to finish paying for their voyage over and they had had to pay for their farm machinery which Mr. Duplesea had bought. They were poor people, but they got a liv- ing and paid for their farm also. Early in 1922 they were blessed with little 'Mike'. He was to be their only child and he immediately became the object of all their pride and devotion. They had made great plans for 'Mike' and had he had the time before going to war, he probably would not have disappointed them. Mrs. Duplesea was remembering Mike's first tooth, his first words, his first hair cut, and finally his first day at school. How proud he had been that first day of school as he marched down the road with his lunch box in hand humming an old Swiss song taught to him by his father. He never did care for school, but that first day had been quite an experience for him. A long sigh from her husband brought Mrs. Duplesea back to the present. It was nice to be remember- ing the past. She wished that she were back in those old days when 'Mike' was a little boy and her husband had been making a good profit on his crops each year. A remark from Mr. Duplesea start- led his wife, "Remember the day, when 'Mike' was in the fourth grade, that he came home with a black eye? That was the first fight he was ever in. Remember how shy he was to come into the house for fear that I would scold him?" As if in answer, Mrs. Duplesea smiled. Yes, she remembered it. She also remembered plastering a steak over his eye that night, when he went to bed, so that it wouldn't look too bad the next day. She had said, "Now try to keep that on there and your eye won't look too bad in school tomor- row." 'Mike' complained, "Aw Ma, I ain't no sissy. What do I care if I have a black eye or not? Maybe the fellas will think I'm tough and leave me alone." Mrs. Duplesea had to get cross then 14 ' BOREAS and scold him or he would have teased her so much that she'd have given in to him and let him take the steak off. "Leave that on there, young man", she commanded, "and if you come home with another one of those black eyes right away, I'll have to speak to your teacher about you." With these final words, 'Mike' had rolled over and gone to sleep. 'Mike' had grown up fast. It had been hard to believe it when he had graduated from high school, He was a big boy then, larger than his dad. He had been a class officer nearly all the way through school, he was liked by all his comrades, he was good in his studies, and he was one of the best in the field of sports. His father remem- bered him as a quarterback on the school football squad. He was as good a player as was to be found anywhere around. After graduation, 'Mike' had helped his father on the farm with the intention of later going to the State University. He was a husky lad and two years ago he had been called for the army. He wanted to go. Mr. Du- plesea had not tried to keep him on the farm. The sound of the clock striking six reminded Mrs. Duplesea that it was nearly time for supper. "Thomas, I wish you'd go down to the well and get a pail of water", she said to her husband. "I'll have supper ready in a jiffyf' With that, she went into the kitchen and busied herself with the task of preparing supper. Later when they were seated at the table, Mrs. Duplesea repeated, "I just can't believe it's true about 'Mike'." She paused, then went on, "It certain- ly is wonderful, though." "Yes", replied her husband," it cer- tainly is wonderful that anything like that could happen to our son. To think that he's been promoted to private first class is almost unbelievable!" G. Croteau '46 IF 1 4' 42 THE LOST GENIUS Dr. Douglas Sawyer did not find the silence that pervaded the huge, dark- ened study so monotonous as many a guest surely would have done. He sat observing the small, child-like figure which occupied an equally small, straight rocking chair near the fire- place. The light from the dying fire showed the blank, thoughtless stare on the face of the unhappy little man. "How typical his expression is", thought the young doctor. "I have seen exactly the same helpless look with so many similar cases of amnes- ia, and yet I get nowhere with my study of him. The family will soon doubt that they have hired a trained psychologist, and I shall doubt it my- self." The doctor went on pondering thus, going over all the facts he knew con- cerning his host, who continued to stare indifferently to the familiar sur- roundings of his study. With wrinkled brow, Sawyer went over again in his mind the conversa- tion he had had that afternoon with Jean Anderson, the young niece of his patient. "By looking at Uncle Mark now, you can't imagine him as he was at the height of' his career. He was such a quick, alert little man, and so young for his age!" "At the height of his career?" the had inquired. BOREAS 15 "Yes, he was really just becoming famous, and no one knows what great compositions he might have written in these thirteen years!" "You were quite young when your uncle became ill, then?" "Only ten, but Uncle Mark had a personality that impressed even the smallest children in the family." "I take it he never married." "No, he has always lived alone, his music was his love, I guess." "Your family hasn't been much help to me: they don't seem to have any idea what caused his illness. They said he was proud of his music, but there must have been some great shock, or disappointment-haven't you some i- dea what caused it?" He had eyed her carefully, feeling more like a lawyer than a man of his own profession, but she had not re- sented his questioningg she seemed only anxious to help him cure her uncle. "It must seem strange to you that they have waited thirteen years before trying a psychologist to help him, but that was because my Uncle Oscar held no faith in your profession", she had smiled and gone on. "I can tell you everything that happened the last night I saw Uncle Mark before his ill- ness." Sawyer leaned forward eagerly. "Then somethin' out-of-the-way did happen!" "Well yes, although it seems a trif- le, even now, He had just completed a 'masterpiece', one he had worked on for over a year. He had gathered the whole family, along with a friend of his, a music critic, to hear it. I remem- ber it well, it was a stormy night and we hadn't wished to come out here. We were in the study and he played on his grand piano." "What was the matter?" "It was the piece," she answered oddly. "It was like none of the rest of his great works. It went on and on until I was quite restless, and the old- er company ready to leave. When he finished, he turned around to us, and he read in our faces the answer to his unasked question. The excited fiush drained from his face, he sat there only for a second, then he rose and left the room without speaking, and it was after that he became ill. He has never played, not one, since then." "How simple," Sawyer had remark- ed. "How very strange that such a great man could 'be affected by one small failure." "We tried every way, you know, to interest him in his music after he got well," the niece went on, "at first we believed him to be angry, but he con- tinued not to recognize us. He has lived on here in his own home, but he is like a stranger in it." Here Sawyer's thoughts ended as he suddenly became aware that the little man was leaning forward in his chair, staring into the darkness. The fireplace held only a red glow, and the ticking clock made a noise that shattered the silence. The young doc- tor was also aware of a low rumble of thunder and the sound of light rain against the windows. He started to rise and to turn on a light when a sudden tiash of lightning showed the chair beside the fireplace empty. In the darkness that followed, Sawyer strain- ed his eyes, and listened intently for some movement near him. A loud 16 BOREAS clash of thunder was followed by a brilliant Hash that revealed nothing of Markus Anderson. The rain drove against the window, and young Doc- tor Sawyer, rising from his chair, wished that the family had seen best to have someone else living with their lost relative other than the faithful Albert and the cook, who were both in the servants' quarters. True, he was quite harmless, but it would have been a bit more pleasant under the circ-umstances, not to be alone with this queer lost genius. The lightning no longer helped him as he groped a- cross to the light switch, it had lost its brightness, and came faintly and at long intervals. He was thankful that the storm was breaking so soon. He slid his hands along the smooth sur- face of the wall, feeling for the switch. A sound filled the room, that was not thunder, and he Spun around to face the piano, Dimly he made out the form leaning over the keys. The music filled the room and drowned out the noise of the wind and rain outside, it was a series of chords each one a deaf- ening sound. Sawyer found the switch, and the room was Hooded with light. The player did not notice the light. Sawyer thought quicklyg here was his chance. The storm had brought back a little of the memory. If only he could complete the picture! He was startled as Albert appeared suddenly in the doorway, staring in amazement to- ward the man at the piano. "It's the piece," he murmured to the young doctor. "Yes, I thought so," Sawyer whis- pered. "You must remember every- thing that goes with that piece. Every- thing! Who came to hear it that night?" Albert, bewildered, remained silent. "Quickly," urged Sawyer. "All the family? And the friend, is he living? The critic, I mean. Come Albert, think fast!" Finally Albert left to call those who were available and near at hand, as he had done thirteen years ago. Sawyer turned his attention to An- derson, who played on and ong and as he listened, he knew it to be the com- position that had failed. There was no theme or tune, but a series of notes that went on endlessly. The doctor watched his patient carefully. He showed no signs of fatigue. Sawyer crossed the room to see the musician's face. It had the same blank expres- sion as before. His eyes did not show interest. The young doctor felt that his scheme was hopeless. He went back to the door and called ffoftly to Albert who had finished tele- phoning in the hall. He talked with him in the doorway, together they ar- ranged the room as Albert remember- cd it had been thirteen years ago. The young doctor appealed to the family to help him, as they hurriedly gathered in the study. The playing ceased. They heard the clock on the mantle ticking, then ap- plause filled the room. Slowly Markus Anderson turned, and he looked be- wildered. Oscar Anderson arose, and all eyes watched him as he approached his brother. "Markus, that was a masterpiece!" he boomed. The musician's eyes grew bright at the familiar voice, and the longed for praise. He smiled. But when he turned BOREAS 17 to look at the rest of the group, a new bewilderment followed. He knew the room, his brother, but he stared at the rest. Then young Doctor Sawyer knew that the time had come. Now he could begin to work with the patient who found himself, but lost the mem- ory of thirteen years.

Cahill '48 4: ir as xr WHAT A LINE! It was gossip all over town by now. Peg Hardy had a black eye! She had been down town when she got it. But then, let's start at the beginning, The rumor had started Saturday morning when Mrs. Avery had called Peg to tell her the news. "Did you know they really have some at Brown's? I got some myself this morning and then I sent John down to get me some more. But you'll have to hurry, Peg, because they won't last long," said Mrs. Avery. "Oh, have they really? I'll go right down. Thanks for telling me. Good- bye," replied Peg. She slammed the receiver and hur- riedly dried the rest of the dishes. Snatching the coat nearest her, she ran out the door like a whirl-wind. When she got to the corner, the bus had just left and she had to wait fif- teen whole minutes for the next one. Finally the bus arrived and Peg board- ed it, but there were so many people already there that she had to stand. At the next stop Mrs. Green got on and made her way toward Peg. "Hello, Peg, Did you hear about that awful Clark girl? She was over to Jean's party last night and she act- ed so nice and polite, but I didn't let that fool me. I know her type. Why, when they started dancing she just hung on to that Batcher boy. She wouldn't let go. He likes Jean, you 18 BOREAS know, but he just couldn't get rid of that Marcia Clark. He had to dance every dance with her. She does that at all of the parties, and she even asked him to take her home! Jean told me so after they left. Oh yes, did you heal' about JeE Corners? Why he is going over to Mrs. Grey's every Saturday night, and her husband's only been dead a year. I'd be ashamed if I were she, wouldn't you? I never saw such goings on. Why this town will ruin all of our decent young people." "I know," said Peg as the bus stop- ped, "but I really have to go now. It was nice to see you. Do come over some evening." "Oh thank you," gurgled Mrs. Green. "I surely Will." Peg got off the bus and hurriedly went into Brown's. She saw the crowd ahead of her, several lines. There must be at least fifty people. She elbowed her way through the crowd and joined the shortest line. She waited for some minutes. Finally she was fifth in line. Five minutes later she stood at the counter. She looked at the clerk a- mazed. On the counter were several different kinds of cigarettes. "VVhat brand, Miss?" asked the clerk. "Why-oh-er-oh my goodness! I'm at the wrong counter," mumbled Peg as she turned away. She made her way to another line, her face red with embarrassment. In practically no time there were several people behind her. Someone pushed, and Peg fell forward. She stumbled and hit the lady in front of her. "Well, what do you think you're doing? You're not going to push me around. I'm staying right here. Don't you have any decency?" asked the old lady crossly. Peg straightened up and Bang! the lady's elbow hit Peg squarely in the eye. "I guess that'll hold you," grumbled the old lady, Peg's eye was swelling and she could feel it getting sore. She glanced at a mirror near her. She had a beauti- ful scarlet eye. In a few minutes it would be a marvelous "shiner". The crowd moved slowly on. Exact- ly thirteen minutes later Peg emerged, battle-scarred, from the throng with her box of Kleenex tucked safely un- der her arm. B. Lane '46 PK Dk Ik PF WOODLAND STREAM I have a favorite spot in the woods Where I always like to go. It's beside a bubbling brook Where the water is extra low. It seems as if all the animals Like to go down there to drink And there are a few who live there Such as the slippery mink. My favorites though are quite timid That is, the doe and her fawn. I hardly ever see them Except in the early dawn. 'lhere is also the large racoon. With his paws he catches fish. Although I should not prefer them raw, He thinks it a tasty dish. There are many other animals Who this quiet pool like to view And I like to go there best of all When I am feeling blue. J. Palmer '48 BOREAS 19 PRIZE SPEAKING PICTURE Standing: G. Croteau, R.

Junior High expresses appreciation to High School We, the boys and girls of the Junior High, wish to thank the High School for including us in their activities. ATll-lllLlETllCS ' BASEBALL For the second successive year our baseball schedule was small consist- idg of only four games, two with Madi- son and two with North New Portland. Although we were victorious only once, we were highly successful in both the team and by participation, the school supporters. Bingham's schedule was as follows: Bingham 4 Bingham 3 At Bingham At Bingham Plans for At N. New Portland 5 at Madison 4 11 N. New Portland 9 5 Madison 6 this year's teami have shown that we will base the schedule on a broader scale, playing more and better teams. It is hoped that the teams of Upper Kennebec will form a league. The main idea of this year will be to have fun and acquire experience. Ik HF ik if FOOTBALL A new type of football was intro- duced at Bingham this year. Instead of the usual touch football, we played regular tackle football. We were handicapped in that we had no uni- forms, and had to practice without the benefit of this equipment. But we played two games, with Skowhegan second team and Dexter, and they were very obliging in furnishing us with uniforms. We were successful in both games, conquering Skowhegan, 7 to 6, and Dexter, 7 to 0. A good percentage of the players will be back next year and it is hoped that we will have more equipment. This will enable us to play more games. BASKETBALL After several years, basketball was resumed at Bingham High. It was a very successful season considering that none of the boys ever saw a bas- ketball game before. We were handi- capped by the lack of a place to play our games and we even had to practice in out-of-town places. We split even in our games with So- lon and North New Portland and won three games from Harmony. These games although not played in town drew large crowds with many supporters from Bingham. The games served as fun and ex- perience for the boys, who will all be back anxious for another attempt next year. We are in hopes of playing more games next year and we would like to find a place in town to play some of these games. HK HK Ik if WINNTER SPORTS Bingham High School participated in four winter carnivals and with sev- eral trips to Baker Mt. enjoyed a good season. Starting off with an intramur- al carnival in which there were 35 contestants, we opened the season. Gerald Berry and Evelyn Bigelow were King and Queen, being high point winners. On Jan. 27, Bingham entered the Kents Hill Carnival and in competi- tion with Kents Hill, Wilton Academy, Jay, and Winthrop High School. We made a fine showing. Kents Hill was declared the winner but Bingham was a close second. Outstanding in this 26 BOREAS .- .--..W. . .- . . .. W. .... .. .WW ...WB H ,,,.,,' .. - is L,, WINTER SPORTS PICTURE Back Row: L.

The annual carnival with Monson on Feb. 10, was won by the Monson boys and Bingham girls, A Corona- tion Ball featured the meet, being splendidly done by the Monson boys and girls. The following Saturday at Bing- ham Carnival held on Baker Mt. it was our turn to be jubilant. Both Bingham boys and girls easily defeated the oth- er competition, consisting of Monson, Skowhegan, Hartland, and Winthrop. Bigelow, Durgin, Macdougall, Heald, Lane, Cahill, and Hunnewell perform- ed well for the girls and outstanding for the boys were Gordon, Berry, Goff, Bridges, Wing, and O'Brien. A trophy was awarded to the winners, having been sponsored by the Student Coun- cil and purchased through the gener- osity of the merchants and friends of the school. Many ribbons and prizes were won by our boys and girls and all are anxiously awaiting next year.

Due to the manpower shortage this was very helpful to the local farmers. PHOTO CLUB We plan to organize a photo club sometime before the end of the school year with Miss Russell as leader, Our school is greatly indebted to Mr. Allen Quimbey who gave the equipment which has made this project possible. SKATING RINK Much work was done during the fall and early winter in building a skating rink which was enjoyed by many of the students. It was used in our intramural carnival for several events. RED CROSS During the Red Cross Drive last spring, the high school went over their quota by 317. This drive lasted about two weeks in the high school and 90 percent of the students contributed. STAMP SALES Bingham High School was honored during the year by a presentation from the Maine State War Bond and Stamp Committee, with Mrs. Lydia Hall Ber- ry, chairman, presenting a certificate of merit and a gift of a copy of the original Bill of Rights to Gerald Ber- ry, president of the Student Council. This award was given for our sale of bonds and stamps of 33562 during 1944, which purchased nearly two field ambulances. Capt. F. P. Ball and Sgt, H. Goodrich were present at this assembly. The sale of war bonds and stamps this year has made it possible to fly the Minute Man Flag continually. LIBRARY By purchase of new books our li- brary has been enlarged to where it was thought necessary to use the Dew- ey System of cataloging. This difficult job was done by Mrs. Hannay. PURCHASES The Student Council purchased a microphone and phonograph turn-ta- ble during the year. These will be a great help at school socials and has solved our music problem for future parties. NEW SHOP EQUIPMENT The Industrial Arts Department was very fortunate this year in obtaining some new power machinery and num- erous hand tools. These are on loan through the State Department of Ed- ucation and greatly facilitates the work in shop classes. It was necessary to enlarge and rewire the shop to ac- comodate this equipment and the boys in these classes have done a line job and gained valuable experience in this project. HOT LUNCHES During the winter months the Home Economic Department, under the di- rection of Miss Elsie Hight, sponsored a hot lunch program for the many pu- pils who came from outside of town. These lunches were started in Decem- ber and lasted until March. The girls planned, prepared, and served these lunches, and also did the cleaning up and sweeping afterwards. This is the first time such a program has been tried at B. H. S. and it has proved a great success. HUMO WOULDN'T IT BE ODD IF: Mr. Perry didn't talk so fast? Miss Emery had returned mid-year exams?
