Perrault, the only teacher with the distinction of having taught continuously at Bellows Free Academy since its doors were first opened in 1930. During that period she has contributed much in time and ejort for the betterment of the school. The Student Council is indebted to her for valuable guidance and advice on hnancial problems, and as a result of her similar duties as business adviser of the Mercury, ufe are able to finance our school publication. Above all, Miss Perrault has built up and maintained the high reputation of the business course of our school and has proved her sincere interest in her students by helping many of them to find good positions after graduation. .mr 0wl'lf-Ishlv IZ 1 B If ,,.. , ..A.Mnl1,u . , ,....-ww MERCURY STAFF Front row: Kerr, Kalahan, Collins, Greene, Gregoire, Lacoste, Audette, Picard, L,Ecuyer, St. Amand, Wilson, King, Lemnah, Myott Second row: McMahon, Wirnble, Kenyon, Luneau, Casavant, Benson, King, Hermann, Whipple, Bombardier, Butler, Shepard, Bliss, Buckley Back row: Francis, Lampman, Berryman, Livingstone, Richards, Barker, VVebster, Dacey, Winner, Dcsautels, Rheume GOOD CITIZENS Joyce Newton and George' llfoozf F A Mercury Giving Our Best KK DD Boys and girls may not have the physique, the ambition or the will to work, yet We are like a group of track men. There are some of us who are always victors and a certain few who Hash through with an occasional triumph. Then, as in any race, there are those of us who are "also-ransv and the ones who had to stagger to reach the finish line. As the track men at present are training for their biggest race, the Olympics, so We have now completed preparation for our big race, the race of life. Our training will determine how we shall fare in life unless we get a sudden surge of energy. But where are we to get this immediate force? The only solution is by directing our own studies and bettering ourselves to a point where we are satified or very nearly so. How do we study alone? There are perhaps two chief methods that we can try, by observation and by reading. Scientists through the ages have made startling discoveries which have revamped the world. We do not claim to be honored with future Pasteurs and Edisons, but there is a great deal that we can study and understand. Abe Lincoln is perhaps the greatest example of what reading can do for a man. Deprived of school, he educated himself on borrowed literature and went on to become our great sixteeth president of the United States. Now we are about to leave our high school days behind us and go out to make our place in the world. We may wish that we had worked harder and ac- complished more, for it is understood that a task well done at the appointed time makes later responsibilities easier and prepares us to grasp opportunities when they come. However in spite of our failures and weaknesses we know that we of the class of 1948 will give to the world the best that we have and the best will come back to us. s i W x q , M I ' 'I A . W . .

F.A. Mercury , da L5 Claes History -S., ,,, lg f. , ' VO 3 l k By Norma Jeanne lVilson There we were, little frightened freshmen who were finally in high school! Not just any high school, but Bellows Free Academy. Eager and confused as we were, we registered in the gym and excitedly compared our registration cards. The next day we tore around the bui-lding looking for room thirty-one downstairs and twenty-three upstairs-thanks to the misguiding upperclassmen! But soon we secured our books and loose-leafs, and within a week we were off to a fiying start. Of course, we claimed Mr. Sun- derland as a member of our class, for it was his first year as principal of BFA. First we chose Frank Horan, joyce Newton, Betty Ann Ladue, and Maurice Chevalier as our class officers. Electing officers was all new and thrilling to us, and we felt pretty big and impor- tant, instead of the lowly frosh that we were. Then we were the guests of the sophomores at the Freshman Reception. We really felt honored, for juniors and seniors were not allow- ed to attend. In fact, this was our first chance to get acquainted with our new classmates. The Freshmen Class proudly stepped forward in its first dramatic appearance and presented the play "Elmerv in the junior jamboree. Miss Marion Curtis was the director. Those participa- ting in the cast were Bill Tuscany, Betty Ann Ladue, Nancy Kern, Norma Wilson, Donna Kerr, and Susan Hermann. Needless to say, we walkell off with the plaque in an easy victory over the sophomores. After all, weren't we the most talented Freshmen Class ever enrolled in BFA? After a busy year, it was soon time for our final exams. We had already suffered once before when we took our mid-years, but scared as we were, most of us came through with flying colors. And so we looked forward to our sophomore year, with our chests thrown out and our heads held just a little higher than usual. After an all too short summer vacation, we were back in school again. The routine and cus- toms were old to us now, and we actually looked down on the little freshmen! Then Maurice Che- valier as president, Douglas Godfrey as vice- president, Edward Brooks as secretary, and Alan Ferguson as treasurer, were elected as our class officers. After the previous yearls training, we were ready for anything. Why, some of us even dared to speak to Mr. Comi! Now it was our turn to give the freshmen a reception. Once again we enjoyed the usual stunts, races, and contests. In short we gave the newcomers to our school a cordial welcome. One of the special attractions of this year was the Dr. Maxim show which was given to raise funds for repairs on Coote Field. 'ijohn Henryv is still trying to figure out how to do some of those tricks. VVe are proud to say that when we were juniors, we were the first class to make a contribution to the Coote Field Fund. XV e were very glad when we heard that Mrs. Bachmann was going to direct the music classes, for we wanted to take part in the State Music- Festival which was to be held again after being discontinued for two years. YVe all enjoyed tak- ing part in the programs. except maybe Betty Martin. This year we presented 'Une jump Aheadv in the Jamboree. The cast, under the direction of 16 - g Wwfwg W Miss Dorothy Thayer, consisted of Ann Kalahan, Graeme Francis, Maurice Chevalier, Alan Fer- guson and Jimmy McTiernan. Something terrible must have happened because quite by accident we bowed down to the freshmen, who won the plaque. The Hrst Student Council was formed dur- ing our sophomore year. Most of us were in the dark about how it was operated or what it was for, but we all knew it was for our benefit, so we immediately accepted it. Our spirits and hopes were a little higher with the ending of the war, and we entered our junior year without a care in the world. Of course we all vowed to turn over a new leaf and study just a little harder, which was the same vow we had made the year before. As always, we upheld our reputation in the sports field, when the "Comets" walked off with the State Championship. Betty Martin, Susan Hermann, Donna Kerr, Joyce Newton, Pat Pud- vah and Anna King were the girls from our class who helped win the championship. And now we successfully sponsored the Junior Jamboree. For our play, we presented "Sugar and Spicev, under the direction of Miss I-Iortense Beeman. Those in the cast were Joyce Newton, Donna Kerr, Nancy Kern, Louis Dwor- shak, and Robert Lampman. Lady Luck must have turned against us, because this time the seniors copped the title of winners of the Willson Cup. Our Prom, we knew was the best one yet. To begin with, the gym was beautifully decorated in two tones of blue, supplemented by stars and birds with Weedis Imperial Orchestra at its best and one of the largest crowds ever to attend, we felt that this was indeed a gala occasion. Nine members of our class were fortunate in being chosen to go to Boys' and Girls, State. Those who went to Boys, State were Eddie Brooks, Bud Lampman, George Wood, and Larry Larrow, while Anna King, Celeste Gage, Betty Martin, Joyce Newton and Rose Luneau attended Girls, State. And now the most glorious year of our school career-the year none of us will ever forget-our senior year, lay before us. Up to now, it hadn't seemed possible that three years could pass so quickly. Um' senior class officers have been Eddie Brooks, Joyce Newton, Anna King and Paul Cha- B.F.A. Mercury bot, as president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer, respectively. The first big event of the year was the hila- rious Senior Play, "Come Out of the Kitchen". It was a smashing success, with our own Miss Beeman directing. T he members of the cast were Joyce Newton, William Tuscany, Susan Her- mann, Maurice Chevalier, Donna Kerr, Graeme Francis, Nancy Kern, and Louis Dworshak. The prompters were Betty Martin and Mariette"'St. Amand. In the Junior Jamboree, which came ,earlier than usual this year, we presented "Luncheon For Six" with the following cast: Larry Larrow, Norma Wilson, Celeste Gage, Rodney Mears, Nancy Newton, Alden Richards, and Robert Lampman. Miss Beeman directed the play. Once more we stepped back into the limelight and won the Willson Cup. For the One-Act Play Contest, which con- cluded our plays for the year, Miss Beeman directed "To The Lovely Margaretf, Members of the senior class that took part in the play were Susan Hermann, Donna Kerr, and Louis Dwor- shak. This was only the third year that our school had participated in this activity and we are proud to say that BFA was chosen as one of the six high schools to compete in the state contest. Certain honors were given to individuals in our class. George Wood and Joyce Newton were elected Good Citizenship Boy and Girl. Betty Martin was chosen as an All-State Basketball guard. Anna King was the soloist to represent our school at the State Music Festival. Because of her high standing in the preliminary tests Charlotte Towle qualified as a finalist for the Pepsi-Cola Scholarship. Larry Larrow was pres- ident of the Student Council, with Louis Dwor- shak as vice-president. Also Larry was elected "Mayor,' of St. Albans during National Youth Week. And Germaine Gregoire, as one of the four delegates from Vermont, will leave on June 15 for Washington, D. C. to attend the National 4-H Club camp. Germaine also won a prize of fifty dollars for her essay about the Teen-Age Center. Continuing a long established custom in this school, we enjoyed two Senior Suppers this year. The first one, with Eddie Brooks and Joyce New- ton as host and hostess, was celebrated in true Christmas spirit iust before the holidays. The second one was held on St. Patricks Day and B.F.A. Mercury 17 Paul Chabot and Anna King were host and hos- tess. The "Mercu1'y', was successfully managed by John Berryman. Other senior members of the Mercury staff were Donna Kerr, Ann Kalahan, Kay Collins, Germaine Gregoire, Mariette St. Lemnah, Leah Whipple, Susan Hermann, Anna Amand, Marilyn King, Colleen Myott, Marilyn ing, Rose Luneau, Norma Wilson, Graeme Francis, Bud Lampman, David Livingston, Al- den Richards, Paul Desautels and Roger Rhea- ume. With so much activity and so many impor- tant events coming rapidly one after the other, the end of May and those last Iinal exams sud- denly sneaked up on us. The moment when we ,-1IInmmmunuuunu looked anxiously at the list of those who were exempt from their exams was at hand. It meant for some of us freedom from classes for a week and a half while others were in school. That ex- tra hour of studying was really paying off! And now, like a Hash, graduation week is upon us. Even though the word ualumnii' excites us and makes us more anxious, the thought o Halma materv slows down our pace and the cherished memories of the past four years fill our minds. Now we realize that We have com- pleted our high school career. Now we must say good-by-"Good-by, a word that hath been and must be, a word that makes us linger-yet good- by 9 Z J V .pwrflg if E Class Song Our graduation day is here, And we must bid adieu To the friends we leave behind us And the things we used to do, The trials and joys that we have known VVill always be with us, When We've left our Alina Mater And weive done the things We must.

Mercury 19 Advice To Undergraduates f,,1 The class of 1948, one of the most dignified and brilliant classes ever to pass through the por- tals of Bellows Free Academy, is now in a posi- tion to give some sound and helpful advice. Dur- ing our four years here we have played hard an Ll worked harder. Although we have many times "rushed in where angels fear to treadf' we have taken the consequences in a creditable manner. However we have learned by experience and have proved that we are a capable, a progressive, and a worthy group of citizens of Bellows Free Academy. So rest assured that you will be fol- lowing no will-o-the-wisp when you consider seriously our admonitions and heed our warn- ings. Listen carefully! VVe advise the class of 1949 to follow in our worthy footsteps and to uphold all the principles that we have established in the past four years. VV e would remind you also that it is your privi- lege and duty to help Mr. Sunderland keep the underclassmen in hand. VVe advise the class of 1950 to excel in sports, not forgetting studies of course, so that they may maintain B. F. Afs honor in the sporting worlf! XVe know that you will have excellent coaches, and the rest is up to you. We advise the class of 1951 to take good care of the freshmen coming to our school next fall. We have heard that they will need direction and encouragement and surely sophomores will be able to fullfil that assignment with thoroughness and diligence. To the students of B. F, A. as individuals we advise: That Ronald Blouin seek instruction from Xlr. Massa on how tie a Windsor knot before he tries to tie it on any more of the dignified seniors. That Arnold Iacobs and Janet Brooks study Louis Dworshakis dance technique and learn to put into practice the Gilmore-Dworshak stroll- so youthful, friendly and dignified you know. It might spare the B. F. A. halls next year one more starry-eyed, lovesick couple. That lohn Webster settle down to one girl and not change every few months. After all there are not that many girls to go around. That Carroll Salls, when he plays ball in Barre again, watch the ball game and not the girls. That the person with the long geared stride and witty tongue, the one who is forever playing the grantlstand, try to stop acting like Iohn Barrymore and start acting like Iohn Berryman- serious, quiet and businesslike. Of course this person couldnit be Simon Winner! That VVilliam Bingham remember that his motorcycle is not equipped with wings, but if he isnit careful, he will soon have wings. That Iim VVallace when he goes to the Music Festival next year, kindly remember that there is a music festival. That Earl Poland ask permission to go bare- foot when he walks the halls with his girl. It isnit the ten miles a day he covers, but the price of shoe leather is going up. That somebody remind Roy McMahon that the parade is at eleven oiclock. Do I need to say more? That Alice Harvey come back to school even though a certain Tommy is leaving. That Furman Pryme try to remember that Mr. Comi's name is not "Hey there!,, That Ruth Bailey find the way to school next year even though Stinky wonit be around to es- cort her. That all the junior and sophomore girls de- cide with whom they want to dance before the last piece in a set. ,That VVilliam Bartlett try to pass history next year. The class is already overcrowded with vets -history vets, that is. That Duane Burnor gain control of his fast ball next year. He's got a big job cut out for him. That john WVood observe Gaye F rancisis technique and especially his ability to acquire a bright smear of lipstick just before the opening curtain of the Senior Play, You might need that technique some day, john. And last but not least we advise Geo. Dacey to try to stay as perfect as he already is. Enough said! The time has come for us to say good-by. We hope our advice will be taken with great earnest- ness. If by any chance it is not followed. the great door will be wide open for you. Do we need say what door? Class Will We, The Class of 1948, of the Ci-ty of St. Al- bans, in the County of Franklin and the State of Vermont, being of sound mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this our last VV ill an Testament, in manner following, tha-t is to say: FIRST: We do give and bequeath to the junior Class our great wisdom, fondly hoping that with what little knowledge they already have they will know enough to use it well. To the Sophomore Class we leave our out- standing personality and superb manners, as they will find these qualities valuable assets in their junior year. We do leave to the Freshman Class this for- mula: Hard work + concentration - loaiing in study halls : I diploma at the end of the next 3 years. Any failure to comply with the pro- vision of the formula may result in an extension of the time alloted to receive said diploma. SECONDLY: The boys of the class of 1948 will to the boys of the lower classes their own edition of "How To Win Friends and Iniiuence Peoplef, so that they too may get on the right side of the teachers. The girls of said class of 1948 leave to the girls of the three lower classes their sophisticated ways and ideas so that they may acquire a more ladylike appearance. THIBDLY: To deserving individuals we do make the following bequests: Item I Betty Martin wills her basketball uni- form to jane Wood with the under- standing that it will be cleaned and pressed before each game. Item 2 Graeme Francis wills Wayne Harvey some of his height so that he m-ay he seen as well as heard. Item 3 Frank Horan wills his swiftness for chasing fly balls in right field to John Walsh. Item 4 To Priscilla Smith, Joyce Newton wills her dramatic clinching ability. Item 5 Leslie Williamson leaves Rocky Houle his ability to get by with a minimum amount of effort. Item 6 To Tommy Greenwood, Robert Lampman leaves his round sense of humor. Item 7 David Livingston leaves' the maunv 5 4 'good jokes that he didn't put in the Item Item Item Item Item Item Item Item I tem Item Item Item B.F.A. Mercury Lawyer: Maurice Chevalier Periscope this year to his successors. Susan Hermann wills to janiee Bell her outstanding ability to bluff her way out of any situation. john Comstock leaves his many ideas about running the school to Simon Winner. VVilliam Tuscany wills to George Dacey his ability to do a good jobof entertaining behind the footlights as well as behind the scenes. Nancy Kern leaves to Pat Vinal her well-known giggle so that she too may attract attention in assemblies. Tommy Swainbank leaves his girl- charming blush to Clifford Sargent. To Fenton Horan, Alden Richards leaves his best Toni Wave Set. Pat Pudvah leaves her many unused locker room jokes to Claire Maynard. Edward Brooks leaves his love of gos- sip to Sylvia Shepard. Celeste Gage leaves to Carroll Salls a generous portion of her musical ability so that he may concentrate on some tune other than "I love coffee, I love teav. To Jean Buckley, Betty Bard leaves her "quiet dignityv. Clarence Roberts wills to john Muril' his mania for chasing after the fire engines. The Five Year Boys leave-with smiling faces. LASTLY: we do hereby appoint the faculty of Bellows Falls Academy executors of this our last Will and Testament, hereby revoking all former wills by us made. In Witness Whereof we have hereunto sub- scribed our name this 14th day of Iune in the year Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Eight. THE CLASS OF 1948 C D XVITNESSED BY: Mrs. Luna Tick, residing at Bellevue Hospital, New York City Mrs. D. Ranged, residing at Nuthouse Lodge, Plc-alsanlntville, N. Y. Miss NI. I, Wright, residing at NVaterbury, Vt. B.fF. A. Mercury 21 Class Prophecy Nows ours is only one more of the many classes that have graduated from BFA. But in twenty years when we recall those who have completed their education in this institution, the class of 1948 will be known as "the famous class". I-Iow do I know. I have that prophetic power given to every senior who writes the class pro- phecy. Suppose you take time now to share with me this power. On a day in june, 1968, I was idly drawing on a piece of paper when my boss entered and exclaimed with excitement, "I have it, I have it, I have discovered the model city from which to gain facts. And you are to verify my findingsf, Heluctantly I left the building to go to the airport. My assignment I felt would be another uninteresting experience. But at the airport I was greatly surprised to find everyone going to this model place named "Success,'. I secured my ticket with difficulty and finally boarded a plane. As I was settling down, the pilot went thru the plane. I felt that he was someone I knew, yet I could not place him at once. Later I recog- nized him as Lloyd jacobs. He told me he piloted his plane to Success daily. After a short visit he left and I settled down to think about what I might see. Awakening the next morning, I glanced down to catch a glimpse of my destination, a group of ultra-modern buildings surrounded by well kept farms. Trees of unusual proportions and beauty covered the small hills surrounding the city. Be- fore I could see more we landed on a huge run- way. A porter took my luggage and directed me to a waiting car. And what a carl It was so streamlined that I just stared. At last I looked at the driver and there was Norma Wilson. Norma, who I knew had wished for a '48 Cadillac back in high school. was now designing and manufacturing her own cars. She drove slowly through the city so that I might look around. We passed several interesting places but one 'fi particular interested me, "Swainbank's Old and New Carsf, Norma was just telling me how well Tommy did in this business when I saw a crowd of people before a store. Clancing up at the top of the building I saw two stout posts By Nancy Newton which held up two barrels. A sign swung be- tween them. It said "Roberts Barrel Companyf' Stinky himself stood outside watching the crowd enter. Other important places of business were Bucklandis Dress Shop, Morseis Milking Ma- chine Manufacturing Co., and Crossis Modeling Agency. The last of these three I recognized as the one which sent such beautiful women all over the world. Coming down the street was a man whose gait and bearing indicated prosperity to the nth degree. Could that be another of my classmates? Why, yes-it was Raymond Beauregard. Norma said he had become a millionaire by striking gold on the banks of Lake Champlain. This dis- covery led to the beginning of the now model city, Success. Two other progressive citizens were Gerald Tromblay and Catherine Berger, who had run a filling station and a hot dog stand respectively to gain their fortunes. At one intersection we were halted by a pa- rade marching up the street. The drum majors and majorettes were trained by Betty Bard. Norma said that she was an instructor at the near by college which was run extremely well by the master mind of Susan Hermann. Norma pulled up beside a beautiful hotel building situated on a hill overlooking the city. Roland 1fEcuyer, the manager of this impressive building, hurried over to my car. He talked with me several minutes and then personally con- ducted me to my room. Shortly after he left, a knock at my door indicated that I had a caller. I opened it to find Patricia Pudvah, president of The Chamber of Commerce, who I learned was to conduct me on a tour through the city. "We shall begin by visiting the mayorf' she said. Immediately I suspected it was Larry Lar- row. But Pat told me Larry had become bored with politics and was now a veterinarian. When we arrived at the city hall, we were conducted to the mayor's office by his very able recep- tionist, Mariette St. Amand. The mayor, who turned out to be Edward Brooks, had aged so much that I did not recognize him at first. No doubt the anxiety of his office had caused the gray hairs, or had he been experimenting with 22 peroxide again? After a short talk he turned i1n- mediately to the urgent business matters which awaited him. As we left, the chimes in the tower of the Episcopal Church, which I learned were rung hy john Berryman, warned us that it was near noon. We stopped to eat at a smart restaurant. Un the outside I noticed a sign which said, "Try Bronson's Baked Beansn. Then I knew that joe Bronson was the owner. The head waiter who greeted us was Dennis Coon, part owner in joe':, restaurant. The entertainers during the after- noon and evening were Nancy Kern, jeanne Perron, Colleen Myott, and that famous voice teacher, William Tuscany. All together they formed an interesting team. As We were sitting there a young man snapped our picture. Pat said it was the famous photographer Leslie William- son, who was known to us in school days as "john Henryf' Ever on the alert for new and in- teresting subjects, he and his trusty camera traveled near and far. After we left the restaurant I was conducted to a group of modern buildings which I recog- nized as Sue Hermanxfs college. Wandering through the halls we read some of the signs on the doors which indicated professors. They were Lawrence Richard, History, Arlene Sheehan, German, Robert Denio, Chemistry, and Donna Kerr, Mathematics. I found that Maurice Cheva- lier was the college football coach while Rodney Mears handled baseball and Graeme Francis, basketball. Celeste Gage was the music super- visor and Leah VVhipple was her accompanist. As we left the school I noticed several people gathered around a platform on which stood Clif- ford Chagnon. He was talking politics while Rose Luneau, news reporter, took his speech down at the rate of 150 words a minute. Clifford was hoping to succeed Paul Chabot as city treasurer. Paul was about to assume his new du- ties as city postmaster. Next we went through Robert Lampmanis printing office. Here we saw Monica Bashaw acting as fashion editor, Paul Denner as car- toonist, and Paul Desautels as editor-in-chief The press was now publishing besides their daily, Success Sentinel, George Wood's recent hook, THE MYSTERIOUS BLONDE. I noticed that Germaine Gregoire was Budis secretary an business associate. As we were leaving, we ran smack into Betty Niartin. who was chasing a small eollie. Betty, who as I remembered had not liked dogs, was p B.F.A. Mercury now the cityis dog catcher. The motor of her large red truck was being repaired by Roddy Corrigan with Andre Demers as his assistant. My attention was sidetracked by a huge bursf of applause which came from the cityis Sport. Arena. Pat pointed out the great ping-pong player, Bud Saurwein and his opponent, th famous detective, David Livingston. In different sections jacques Chabot and Frank Horan were engaged in hockey and baseball games respec- tively. It Was here we ran into three famous men named Roger Rheaume, john Comstock, -an 1 Reginald Yates. Roger was the city's well known skier, john the best fisher and Reginald the 'fa- mous hunter. We left hurriedly, for it was getting late. WVe passed a modern theater whose neon lights said: "See Marilyn King in her latest sensational role." Below I saw a notice which read: "Coming soon, Pascal St. Pierre, the great cowboy croonerf' Pat hurried me up a big hill which overlooked th'- entire city. On the way up we met janet Shepard who had become well-known in the art of more tain climbing. Pat told me that the trees we could see scattered throughout the town were planted by Louis Dworshak, who was an e pert in landscaping. The view also overlooked Paula Partlowis horse ranch. In the distance we eould see the large progressive looking farms o Stanley Webster and Malcolm Ladd. Pat sail Malcolm and Amos were arguing over thc boundary line between their farms. Representing them in their case were George Harmon and another lawyer. Georgeis secretary was Betty Ladue. The next stop was at the four-story hospital which was situated on the outskirts of the town Of course we met the two pretty medical secre- taries, Ann Kalahan and Kay Collins. The doc- tor who was conferring with some nurses was none other than Robert Saunders. The nurses were Anna King, joyce Newton, and Charlotte Towle. We passed two doors on which we read: Dr. Monica Marshia, Brain Surgeon, and Dr. Al- den Richards, Dentist. We peeked into Alden': office and saw Marilyn Lemnah busily writing. I concluded that she was his secretary. It was dark when We left the hospital and glancing at my watch I knew I had just time enough to go to my hotel, make my report, anl catch a plane back to my work. I was hoping im' hoss would he pleased with the survey that I had just completed. l certainly was, for l had seen .:Q. my classmates. T!! 23 F.A.
