Scenes from the “Courtship of Miles
Siandish were remarkably well present
ed by Russell Knight as Standish, Charles
Buzzell as John Alden and Helen Foster
as Priscilla Mullens. John and Priscilla’s
happiness and Miles’ wrath and later con
gratulations were evidently understood
by these little folks.
Little Miss Eileeu Fernald as Betsy
Ross, was most attractive and sweet,

as Washington, Norman Elliott as Major
Ross, Carl Colcord as Robert Morris and
dai,n,ty Elizabeth Webb, as the “little
?>r'. ,wh. e the chorus sang “Fling Out
the Flag.”
The costume dances, The Virginia Reel,
the Maypole and Sellenger’s Round dances
by the McLellan school, were attractive
features, held the closest of attention and
were cordially applauded.
franklin’s first and second entry into
Philadelphia featured the difference be

by Mrs. Sumner C. Pattee and danced y
members of the B. H. S., Elizabeth Hit
tridge, Elizabeth l)oak, Olive Morse and
Ruth Dinsmore, Carroll Parker, Austin
Vaughan, Ashley Mathews and Bartlett
Whiting. The young ladies wore silk
evening gowns of Colonial style and had
their hair powdered. The young men
wore the Colonial uniform and gray wigs.
It was a very pretty feature.
The Boston Tea Party (the original dia
logue written by Miss Mildred Black) was
of unusual merit. The meeting was pre
sided over by Orland Orchard and the
speeches were made by other members of
the High school, Hermit Nickerson, Ed

While Miss Gladys Keene in a Colonial
gown read Paul Revere’s Ride, Albeit
Morey as Paul Revere and Charles Swift,
his friend, in army uniforms, illustrated
the points, including Paul setting out to
hang the lantern in the tower of the old
North Church.
Other historical events well featured
were the Declaration of Independence,
the Surrender of Yorktown, the Lincoln
Family Migrating to the West, the Lin
coln and Douglas Debate. In the migra
tion scene Herbert Black’s experience in
driving oxen seemed to be the only thing
that kept that feature from accident, as
the team was driven through a crush of
people and autos. In the debate Hillard
Buzzell as Lincoln and David Moody as
Douglas did remarkably well to keep
their composure while facing an audience
gowned in such curious Colonial rigs.
The Columbia Dance by Doris Sweatt
and Olive Morse was a most attractive
feature anu very gracefully done.
The wars from 1812 to the present
World War were well featured. That of
1812 was symbolized by tne chorus song,
The Star Spangled Banner, with Evelyn
Knowlton as the Goddess of Liberty. The
Mexican by Miss Knowlton as Columbia,
the ocean maidens led by little Charlotte
Cooper, Ruth Foster, Anne Cooper and
Drusilla Roderick of the Peirce school,
the Pilgrims from all the Grades; Liberty
by Mildred Heald, soldiers from the Gram
mar school, sailors and garland bearers
from the Peirce school; War by lone Jud
kins. The Civil War was symbolized by
the chorus singing a group of the patriotic
songs of those days. The Spanish War
and the World War, representing the Al
lies and victory, were in tableaus.
America closed the program.

The net proceeds for the school building
fund were $300, and from a scenic point

Frank E. Clark, one of the city’s most
highly respected citizens, died at his

He was born in Prospect, the son of

General Pershing in Belfast
Speaks in the Rain to a Large Crowd
Gen. .John J. Pershing, commander-in- i
chief of the American Expeditionary
Forces in France, was a guest of our city
for only a few moments last Saturday
afternoon. It was with regret that the
plans of entertaining Gen. Pershing, Gov.
Carl E. Miiliken, and their party at lunch
in Memorial Hall were given up on ac
count of the change of plans for his Maine
visit as the special guest of Gov. Miiliken.
Mayor C. W. Wescott, Ralph A. Bram
hall, Commander of Frank Durham Haz
eltine Post, A. L. of H., and Albert E.
Andrews, Captain of Co. F., Third Maine
Infantry, went to Bangor Saturday morn
ing to escort the party to Belfast. They
arrived at 12.1U, shortly after the rain be
gan and earlier than the advertised time.
Frags were floating everywhere in honor
of one of our country’s greatest men and
since early morning people from all over
the county had been collecting. Some on
account of the rain had remained at home
until the time announced for his arrival
and did not see the party. The Belfast
Band played patriotic selections during
the hour.
The autos stopped in Post Office square
when Mayor Wescott stood bareheaded
in a downpour of rain to introduce Gen.
Pershing. His address was necessarily
brief but rang with the true spirit of
patriotism that has characterized his re
marks and deeds during and since the
great war.
Gen. Pershing’s smile as he arose to
address the large audience indicated that
our country’s leading fighter also had a
gentle side to his stern character. He
“Mr. Mayor, your Excellency, ladies
and gentlemen, girls and boys, including
a few babies. I told the Governor when
we started out on this trip that we would
have two days of good weather, and I
would guarantee it if he would guarantee
the balance. Furthermore, I assumed no
responsibility of the weather, so today it
is all on the Governor’s shoulders. I
don’t know whether I am going to talk
through those umbrellas or not (the great
majorit) of the umbrellas went down at
once) but it will spoil a lot of spring hats
I tear.
“I am very gla indeed, to be here, to
include this historic city as a part of the
very brief itinerary which the Governor
has prepared for me during my visit to
the State. I will say that the visit is all
too brief, and I regret more than you
know that the original program of six
days was not carried out.
“1 have had a delightful time in every
respect. Your mountains and lakes, your
rivers and valleys are very attractive, to
say nothing of your roads. (Laughter) I
am now getting even with the Governor.
“But most of ail I am grateful for this
opportunity of seeing the people of this
great State, whose ancestors meant so
much to the early history of the State,
and to the early history of our country,
and who, themselves, meant so much to
the armies abroad. We felt your im
pulse, we realized that you were behind
us with your patriotism, with all of your
money, loyalty and prayers, and these
things together gave to the armies, espec
ially to those who re resented you di
rectly, an impulse that carried them
through with valor and with gallantry to
the end, and enabled them to bring back
lo you the victory. I thank you for hav
; ing sent to me such men. I am honored
to have commanded scch men. You, in
turn, should be proud of your sons, your
husbands and your brothers.
“I thank you very much, and the rain
doesn’t stop. I have lost my power over
ii, so I am going to bid you goodbye, and
thank you for this reception, which I ac
cept not in my own name, but in the
name of the splendid manhood who rep
resented our country abroad and brought
back to you the victory.”
Before his car stopped he said hello
1 kiddies” and soon as he was seated a
■ dozen or more small boys and one little
girl reached up over the side of the car
and he shook hands with them even when
the car was moving and left saying:
“Good bye kiddies, good bye.”
It would have been a pleasure to the
audience to have heard Gov. Milliken
and Adj. Gen. Presson, but time would
not permit.
Among the newspaper men with the
party were If. M. Bigelow, Portland
Press; Sam E Connor, Lewiston Journal;
O. L. Hall, Bangor Commercial; C. W.
Richards. Kennebec Journal; J. C. Mur
phy, Associated Press.

Belfast High School Week.
The Baccalaureate Sermon.
A very impressive Baccalaureate ser
vice of the B. H. S. class of 1920 was
held in the Unitarian church Sunday at
10.45 a. m. The church was simply and
effectively decorated in red and white,
the class colors. White lilacs and nar
cissi and red tulips and gladioli being
used. Suspended between the pillars in
the rear of the pulpit was the class motto
in red letters on a white surface, “Build
for Character Notfor Fame.” The Seni
ors, led by their class marshal, Maurice
Cobb, were ushered in by the Juniors led
by marshal Bartlett Whiting, the Sopho
mores by marshal Orland Orchard and
the Freshmen by marshal Granville Hof
fess, having seats reserved for them by
bands of their class colors. The teachers
occupied seats in the rear of the school.
Excellent music was furnished by the
regular church choir with soio parts by
Mrs. C. W. Wescott and A. P. Goodhue.
Rev. Arthur E. Wilson preached a very
helpful and appropriate sermon on “To
the Testing,” taken from St. Paul’s'let
ter to the Corinthians, featuring the life,
death and teachings of Christ, the good
foundation. The superstructure is for the
individual. The testing of lives in made
on the foundation furnished by the
school, the church and the home, wheth
er perishable or imperishable. Opportu
nities should be made use of in lives as
in buildings and ships should use only the
tested materials. He urged the youth
before him to play fair and not cheat, to
meet every temptation with the light of
conscience, to avoid egotism and false
pride, to be religious and make their B.
H. S. motto their life motto. His sum
mary was addressed to the seniors stand
ing as a class. He also read from The
Builders by Longfellow. It was a sermon
as helpful to his adult audience as to the
The Prize Speaking Contest.
I he second annual prize speaking con
test open to the entire school for the $20
in awards offered by the City National
Bank of Belfast took place in the Armory

cal selections were given by the school
under the direction of Miss Margaret M.
Mitchell with Miss Elizabeth Hills at the
piano. The judges were Rev. A. C. El
liott, Ralph A. Bramhall and Miss Grace
A. Lord, and their decisions met the ap
proval of all. The chairman, Mr. Elliott,
remarked as he announced and distributed
the prizes that where the enlire program
was of unusual merit it was somewhat
difficult to discriminate and each pupil
should be commended for good work. The
prizes of $5, $3 and $2, were awarded to
the following boys and girls in the order
named: Miss Black, Miss Dutton, Miss
Stackpole, Master Meservie, Master

Give the kiddies
a real Victrola
Why not place an inexpensive, small
type Victrola in the nursery or playroom
for the children’s very own? Think of the
great delight it will add to their playtime
A Victrola will bring them music and
songs to love and memorize; music to ac
company their plays and pageants; singing
games, folk and interpretative dances, and
fairy stories of the kind the little folks adore.
Both the Victrola IV and VI are ideal
instruments for children. They play all
Victor Records perfectly. Come in and
hear some of the many records made ex
pressly for children.
