THE MERCURY 15 Iviiitinliebioilbjoutidoioiaiesioiclithioiioiabitniariq at Ebitotial Ralph Beauregard The death of Ralph Beauregard created a loss felt most deeply by the students and faculty of B. F. A. It is more than the ab- sence of a teacher we feel, it is a friend who is gone. He was the friend of every boy and girl in the school. Friendliness was his pre- dominant characteristic. We can never forget Mr. Beauregard's classes. His sympathetic aid encouraged many to greater efforts. His stories interrupted the monotony of class work and made it more agreeable. The nature of his teaching inspired effort. It was like letting down a pal to shirk an assignment in one of his subjects. At the year's end in some strange manner you knew the subject and could remember only enjoying his class. He punished us at times but he was always justified. A week later we would be joking with him over the incident. At noon there was always a group of students rounding him at the end of the upper hall. He was always ready to help a student both in and out of school. He was one of the best- liked teachers in the building. To many he was the most popular. SUI'- -The door is closed between us now, but Mr. Beauregard's spirit will never leave our memories. It is bound there forever by the bonds of a hundred little incidents, in the classroom and out, which can never be broken.

The big diamond question seemed to be "pennant, pennant, Who's got the pennant ?" Nobody knew but everybody said he did. In some years a team of unquestioned superiority appeared, but these years were few. Usually two or three widely separated schools, with equally good records, laid claim to the mythical bunting. The unfortunate part of the argu- ment was that the only way of settling it lay in involved play-offs, and that distance or the closing of school prevented these. It was an unfortunate situation and seldom was satis- factorily disposed of. In order that Vermont high school teams should no more experience the customary pen- nant predicament, the Northern Vermont Baseball League was formed last fall. Not that the best team in this league will neces- sarily be crowned champion of Vermont, but the question will be settled among the north- ern teams at leastg and a championship game, it seems, could then easily be arranged with the southern leader. The Northern Baseball League, springtime approximate of the Northern Vermont Basket- ball League, certainly fills a long felt need in state schoolboy athletics. Comprised of seven of the largest schools in the northern territory, the league should furnish an undis- puted champion of northern Vermont base- ball. A play-off with the southern champion would establish the winning team in unchal- lenged possession of the interscholastic base- ball title. By settling the championship question, the league will end the yearly never-settled newspaper squabbles and should aid in furthering the feeling of good-will between the schools, by terminating the post-
