High Points in High School 1953-57
It was almost four years ago that the now learned Class of 1957 began its gradual
metamorphosis. Thirty-three strong, that first year, it stumbled through such money-
making propositions as dances, food sales, and School Bazaar projects. It contributed,
also, a few budding "Bob Cousys" and "Ted Williamses. " It tried its inexperienced
hand at parliamentary procedure, thus selecting its president, Frank Woodard: vice
president, Leroy Kennedy: secretary, Jean Bemis: treasurer, Nancy Cahill, with Frank
Woodard, Beverly Paige, and Joe Daggett as representatives to Student Council.
Unfortunately, owing to a serious school bus accident in March, six of our class-
mates from "up river" did not return to a second year at B. H. S.
That following year, the executive committee performed an encore to some extent
with F. Woodard again as head man. He was supported by Vice President, W. Quintg
Secretary, J. Bemis and Treasurer, N. Cahill. Frank, Don Robertson, and Anita Beau-
doin were the Sophomores' contribution to the Student Council.
Financially, the outfit in 1954-55 was quite successful. Proceeds from various and
sundry dances plus dime-a-week dues fand a not-too-wallet-fattening food salej brought
in nearly S100 before June.
As Juniors, we started off our third year in September of '55 with fewer than 20
members. Later, Aurelien Roy came down from Aroostook, but the roll was still losing
its battle. F. Woodard repeated his role as President with his Vice Resident, J. Bemis:
Secretary, M. McLaughlin: Treasurer, K. Kennedy, and Student Council members
were Frank, Wayne and Nancy.
Last year, in working toward our goal - Washington - we did very well. One pro-
ject, though it gave us quite a bit of money, was not notable in its financial sense. It
was Bingham High's first "official" record hop. Radio Station, WGHM, in Skowhegan
seemed happy to oblige. And of course we were tendered the usual Prom, for which we
exchanged the Graduation Ball with the Seniors. That year, too, Bingham High welcomed
her new Principal, Mr. John Hall, now presiding.
September, '56, started its brand new Seniors off with 17 members. Drring the
first semester, the population did a bit of quick footwork fminus one, Phebe White: plus
one, Donna Ellisj. So the books balance.
This has been a busy year, as most Senior years are. Activities began with class
portraits and will continue through our Washington trip to Graduation. Those are the
big projects, very common to Seniors everywhere. Class parts have been awarded as
follows: Valedictory, Frances Durgin: Salutatory, Franklin Woodard: First Honor Essay,
Avis Belangerg second, Anita Beaudoin: Third, Mavis McLaughlin. Frederick McClintick
and Jacqueline Michaud have gifts, Donna Bennett, History: Jean Bemis, Prophecy: and
Nancy Cahill, Will.
Almost all the Seniors are planning to go to Washington. Accompanied by Mr. and
Mrs. Philip Knight, we anticipate a fitting climax to our four years at B. H. S.

i L During but Freshman and Sophomore years we lost W. Hunter, M. Cook, and L. Gleason.
We were fairly quiet and ended with 371. 02 in our treasury.
Now in our Junior year with that ever big Senior year right around the corner we are really
starting to roll - financially! From the popular Lone Pine show we cleared 597. 00 and with class
dues and dances we hope to end this year in a grand manner.
Opening day found us with thirty-five members, but since then we have lost B. Martin, P.
Cates, B. Harris, A. McLaughlin, and C. Hill. Officers elected at our first meeting were
President, P. Corbin: Vice President, D. Millerg Secretary, B. Paigeg Treasurer, B. Hillg Stu-
dent Council Representatives, B. Atwood, N. Belanger, and K. Davis. Our thanks go to Mrs.
Atwood, class advisor, for her advice and patience during our class meetings.

The ways in which the class of '55 earned money were the Harvest Dance, at which we made
a fair amount of money, and the Night Club Dance, which was quite successful. We also had a
pencil machine which helped increase our funds.
This year the Sophomore Class has earned money by a food sale, the pencil machine, and
cutting Christmas trees. We hope to have other activities later to earn more money. At the
beginning of the year the president of the class was Lester Beale. When he moved away, the
Vice President, Pauline Forrin, became president. Marie Wing was elected Vice President in
place of Pauline. The remaining officers are as follows: Secretary, ,loan McCollorg Treasurer,
Janice Lawerysong and Student Council Representatives, Charlene Waugh and Lionel Clark.

On October 11, the Seniors began Freshman Initiation. For two days at school we were
requested to dress as ladies and gentlemen. On the 12 in the evening at the official Freshman
Reception we dressed in outlandish costumes and reported to the Gym to be accepted to Bingham
High by the Seniors. Even though we had been ladies and gentlemen for two days, initiated on
Friday night in our outlandish costumes, we can really say we had as much fun as the Seniors.
On December 14, we held our annual Freshman dance. It was a Barn Dance effect with
tables around the floor to represent a night club. We had a floor show with the following par-
ticipants: Jena Bemis, Frank Woodard, Joan McGollor, Mary Wing, Rena Pelletier, Una Cyr,
and Michael Read. Our door prize was a large cake. A jitterbug contest and a waltz contest
were held, with bracelets for the girls and pens for the boys who were winners. Music was
furnished by the school orchestra. We made a profit of 840. We hope to have other activities
later in the year.
We should like to express thanks to Mr. Matheson who has helped us a great deal this year.

MUSIC in BINGHAM HIGH SCHOOL
This year there are 84 in our choir, which holds rehearsals each Thursday afternoon.
Our band has 39 members. For the first time officers were elected. They are: President,
Dale Miller: Vice President, Franklin Woodard: Secretary, Wayne Quintg and Reporter,
Io Ann Shaw. Dale Miller, clarinetist, represented Bingham in the Kennebec Valley
concerts at Skowhegan and Waterville.
The outstanding event of the year was the Eastern Maine Music Festival, held May 5
It was a distinct honor for our school and town to serve as hosts.
Sponsored by the Lions Club, with the assistance of practically every other organi-
zation in town, the Festival was a great success. For one day the population of the town
was doubled, with 2000 musicians and 1000 friends as guests.
After the 58 auditions for vocal groups and soloists in the forenoon, Qin which our
school placed well in its three selections, "Moonlight Bay, " Stout-hearted Men," and
"Bless This House"J, 25 band units, marshalled by Mr. Steven Shaw, paraded from Mos-
cow Elementary School past the Judges' Stand in Bingham. There were bands from An-
son, Augusta, Albion, Bingham, Belgrade, China, Dexter, Dover -Foxcroft, Fairfield,
Farmington, Freedom, Gardiner, Athens, Harmony, Guilford, Hartland, Madison, North
New Portland, Oakland, Waterville, Winslow, Greenville, Unity, Phillips, Skowhegan,
Solon, and Charleston. We were proud almost to tears to see our little Bingham Band,
led by its snappy Ma jorettes, swinging bravely along at the head of the colorful parade,
followed by much larger bands in elaborate uniforms.
ln the evening a composite chorus of 167 voices, under the baton of guest conduc-
tor, Dr. Pichierri, gave a concert at the Quimby School Auditorium. Students from
our school included in the chorus were:
Nancy Cahill Anita Beaudoin Kenneth Laweryson
Jean Bemis Theressa Lagasse Aurelien Roy
Janice Quint Douglas Cahill Merle McCollor
Jacqueline Michaud Dale Laweryson Keith Davis
David Read was featured as trumpet soloist.
This was a day we shall never forget, an event which happens once in a lifetime.
We wish to express sincere thanks to our director, Mrs. Marion Knight, for all she has
done for music in our schools.

A 17 win - 2 loss season drove the 1956-57 edition of the Bingham High School Cavaliers to
the school's first basketball championship. Winning all of our fourteen league games, we fattened
our win column with a hard fought victory over Pennell Institute and an all-important win over
Freedom in our first State Tournament battle. Losing only to a powerful UKVL All-Stars quintet
and to Winthrop, we compiled a most satisfying record.
On November 19, Coach Dingley called out the squad for the first practice. As usual, interest
was sky-high and the gym was invaded by one of the best turnouts in many years. After a week
of looking over all prospects, Coach Dingley cut the squad down twelve and began the long, hard
road to victory.
Scores of games were as follows:
OPPONENT SCORE BINGHAM SCORE OPPONENT SCORE BINGHAM SCORE
Athens 40 60 Athens 45 62
Anson 46 59 Harmony 30 89
Jackman 35 50 Solon 55 61
Monson 33 98 Monson 31 84

Permell Inst. 48 63 Solon 45 61
Harmony 49 67 Freedom 29 48
Jackman 38 42 Winthrop 60 42
UKVL All-Stars 55 53
Total score 842 1, 191
Average score per game 44. 32 62.69
The Cavaliers employed a zone defense throughout most of our games. Using a "two-one-
two" most of the time, we alternated with a "one-three-one, " a "three-two, " a "two-three, "
and a "flatiron. "
Although our closest final score was that of the All-Star game. 55-53, our tightest game was
at Jackman. Our highest score for one game was compiled against Monson - 98 points. Our
lowest score came as a result of the Jackman game - 42 points.
The team elected Frank Woodard captain for the eventful year. Bartie Hill represented us
at the regional foul-shooting tournament at Farmington. Losing only three men via graduation,
Coach Dingley anticipates a great '57-'58 season.
The '56-'57 Cavaliers thank Coach Ed Dingley for all the time and work that he has put in
with us. We also thank managers Gary Tibetts and Dick Rollins for their fine job.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL 1956-1957
The girls' basketball team of 1956-1957 had a fairly successful year. They won eleven out
of fifteen games. One game that we won was a real victory. We beat North Anson by '7 points
which was their first defeat in two years. Our talented guards held them off while our forwards
showed their skill at rebounding, passing, and quick shooting, bewildering the North Anson girls.
Avis Belanger was captain of the team and Mavis McLaughlin served as Manager. The team
chose Avis Belanger and Frances Durgin to represent Bingham in the All-Star game held at North
Anson. The All-Stars put up a good fight but lost by a wide margin.
The girls' basketball team wishes to express its thanks and appreciation to Mr. Hall for the
patience and time he gave in coaching them this year.

Our winter sports team looks very successful this year. We have most of our veterans back.
Among them are Barton Hill '58, Paul Corbin '58, Keith Davis '58, Jean Bemis '57, Nancy Ca-
hill '5'7, Clyne Bigelow '58, Frank Woodard '57, and Betty Bigelow '57, Our new additions are
Betty Atwood '58, Joyce Lagasse '60, Michael Read '60, Eugene Hunnewell '60,
We participated in a Ski Meet at Guilford, Saturday, February 23. We showed up very well
in this meet collecting 14 points as follows: Keith Davis '58, first Downhill: Paul Corbin '58,
second Jump and Frank Woodard '57, first Jump and third Slalom.
We hope to better this record in future meets, especially in Cross Country. We still have a
meet with Monson. We shall be host at our Winter Carnival on March 9.
Mr. Matheson is again our coach. He has stood by us through victory and defeat and has
never given up. Interest in winter sports could be better and we wish more students would come
out for this activity.

Bingham had a new addition to its sports activities this year. Cross-Country was offered for
the first time in ten years. Most of the boys on the basketball team went out for it to get in con-
dition before the season.
We did well considering our inexperience and late start. We did not win any meets, but we
showed up well against schools that placed high in the state meet. We ran in six meets in all,
two with Madison, two with Guilford, and two with Phillips. One was a tri-meet against Phillips
and Guilford, held here at Bingham.
Mr. Dingley was pleased with the turnout and results of our first year and hopes that next
year we shall be better. We hope to see all the veterans turn out next year and also new mem-
bers who are swift and interested. Let's have a, good year.
Paul Corbin - '58
The 1955-56 baseball team wound up its spring campaign sporting a four-win-five-loss rec-
ord. A late spring made it impossible for the team to get in much practice before the first few
games, a problem common to all national pastimers throughout Central and Northern Maine. '
Lack of bull-pen depth can also be taken into consideration when examining the won-lost col-
The Cavaliers dropped a tough one to Central in an exciting opener 13-12, but bounced
back to whip the Monson Slaters 8-5. Baftled by the polished pitching of "Bunky" Davis, we
took a 5-0 loss from Solon and continued the slump through the next two games in a non-league
contest, and a 14-1 setback at the hands of Somerset Academy. Coming back strong, we dealt
North Anson its first defeat of the season in a 10-3 contest. In a series of non-league games,
we took a 15-2 trouncing from Skowhegan, but rallied to down that same club 7-6 in an error-
less thriller. We proceeded to wind up the season with a satisfying 28-8 beating of the Harmony

This year the Masquers, under the presidency of Nancy Cahill and the direction of E. H.
Matheson, decided to profit by the Western vogue and chose as their three-act play, "Arizona
Dude Ranch" by Wilkinson. The choice proved wise, the audience laughing hilariously at the
funny parts and duly shivering when suspense and gun-play entered the picture.
Jean Bemis and Don Robertson, playing opposite each other as the "love interest, " repeated
their triumph of last year in "Old Doc": Robert Bossie and Frank Woodard displayed hitherto hidden
talents in comedy parts. Frances Durgin, Nancy Cahill, and Betty Bigelow were their dependable
selves in the parts allotted to them, as were Keith Davis and Paul Corbin. It was to be regretted
that the script had no parts really worthy of the talents of Wayne Quint, Jacqueline Michaud, and
Nancy Belanger, whose performances last year contributed so much to the success of "Old Doc. "
Mike Read proved the dark horse of the season, turning in a sparkling performance as Wild Bill
Plans are under way for a spring production. So with a growing tradition and plenty of en-
thusiasm, the Masquers face a bright future,
Sad farewells to all our Seniors, who will not be here to bolster and encourage our club next
year. Good luck to you wherever you go.

I Never Realized--
I never realized what advantages I have had and do have by being a member of a
large family. lt is true that there is a squabble now and then, but with fourteen in a
house you can't expect it to be heaven all the time.
Many people, especially my schoolmates, say that we must have a very difficult
time keeping up on our school subjects, sports and work at home. l have to admit that
it isn't what anyone would call a picnic.
Growing up in a large family has made us more appreciative of our parents, who
try to satisfy everyone at all times gon achievement which is highly impossiblej, and
more appreciative of our friends and neighbors, who always help when help is needed.
We are better able to adjust ourselves to the simple ways of life. My sister and I, be-
ing the oldest children at home, have the responsibility of the younger ones, by no
means an easy task. When sickness comes to our home, everyone, aged one to eigh-
teen, has some way in which he can help to make everything easier.
With the help of God and with the blessing of such wonderful parents we shall al-
ways succeed in having a happy home.
We may not be rich as far as money is concerned, but we are rich in happiness.
Nancy Belanger, '58
How Dead Is Shakespeare?
Many people doubt that William Shakespeare ever wrote the plays that are attri-
buted to him. They give the credit to Christopher Marlowe, the Earle of Oxford, Sir
Francis Bacon, or possibly even a group of these men writing together under the pen
name of Shakespeare.
Anyway, no matter who wrote them, they are definitely a living and colorful in-
fluence on our English language of today. Even so, the plays as plays could have died.
Why didn't they? What is there to the work of this man that makes it as popular now,
four hundred years after his death, as it was when it was written?
For one thing, Shakespeare was a poet and his phrases are so beautiful that some of
them are unforgettable: but even more than that, he was a psychologist - he understood
Even the least of Shakespeare's CHARACTERS is very real and human. Great actors
and actresses are proud to play even such small parts as that of the nurse in "Romeo and
Juliet' because these parts contain so much opportunity for characterization.
Ithink that my brother summed up the answers you would get pretty well, when he
said, "Well, fellow cats and teachers, Ithink Shakespeare was a real gone kitty cat. I
mean most, real cool, "
Well, cats, I'd say Shakespeare is still kicking mighty hard, wouldn't you?

THE MODERN GIRLS' DILEMMA
The average girl of today is being put to a severe test by modern machines. It is
a general assumption that a girl sometime during her life is going to be married, the
recent fad being more than once. Due to the fact that a man no longer needs to get
married in order to have a well-run home life, it is rather difficult landing a husband.
l'm making this statement on reports of others as I, personally, have not as yet pursued
A man today can choose a new model "housekeeper" every year at his local hard-
ware store or from the yellow pages of his mail-order catalogue. There is even an in-
strument fnow being distributed by the Bell Telephone Companyj that will answer all
his telephone calls while he's out. Moreover, it will record any message the caller
wants to leave and will give the caller whatever recorded message its owner has prepared
I am not ready, though, to accept the theory that the housewives should be assigned to
the ranks of the technologically unemployed, because after all, there are still some
functions at which a flesh-and-blood wife can't be beat: for example: I've yet to hear
of a gadget that can change diapers.
This subject of new devices was brought to my attention as I was looking through a
magazine which pictured many of the newest gadgets. One in particular that caught my
eye was the latest cigarette-vending machine. As you feed the coin plunger, a battery-
operated record player goes into action, and a metallic, but courteous, voice booms out:
"Hello! Don't run short! Better buy two packs while you're here. " Other machines
pictured sold everything from milk to life insurance. There is even a device that di-
spenses a 10-second whiff of faure oxygen upon receipt of a quarter. This, is said to be
a sure-fire cure for a hangover.
I add a last suggestion for the girls. When competition from machines seems too
threatening, perhaps you ought to reflect upon the recent words of a New England con-
gressman. He had been listening for hours to an irate club woman's complaint about the
"vicious" influence of television on children. After a particularly forceful outburst
against crime, sex, and violence, she would up by demanding that the Congressman tell
her exactly what should be done about "these horrible programs" on one of our recent
gadgets, TV. "Madam, " he replied blandly, "did you ever think of turning the darned
thing off 7 "
