Page Six THE QUODDY TIDES, Eastport, Maine 27 December, 19eml SCHOOL NEWS On Thursday, Dec. 19, the music de- partment of S.MH.S. presented a concert, "Christmas Greetings" for the enjoyment of the public. During the program, Mrs. Brown, the music director, was presented a Christmas plant in appreciation for her time and effort by band president Betty Humphries. Friday, the 20th was a busy day at Shead. Students were naturally excited about the closing of school for Christmas vacation. In the afternoon the National Honor Society and fellow students pre- sented a Christmas Assembly which was highly amusing and entertaining. There was a simulated version of a television- show, including an updated production of "The Night Before Christmas" and a live, unrehearsed broadcast from the North Pole. The program concluded with a mu- sical selection by Vina Ramsdell and a Christmas reading by William Altvater. Others taking part in the program were Tom Baxter, Lorraine MacNichol, David Ray, Beverly Newman, Philip Mathews, Karen Bishop, Jo Ann Ray, Frances Mil- iano, Ken Moholland, Bill Dougherty, Betty Humphries, Reid Gray, and Bob Burr. Principal, Gene Wilbur, has announced that three Shead students have been cho- sen as Outstanding Teenagers of America by the Outstanding Americans Founda- tion. Teenagers are chosen on the basis of ability, accomplishment, and service. Those commended were Betty Humph- ries, Bob Burr, and Frances Miliano. The Senior Class has presented the stu- dent body with a new grill for the conces- sion stand in the auditorium. This will be used to cook the hot dogs at the home basketball games. Grand Manan Versus McAdam "On November 29th the McAdam girls were defeated by the Breaketts. Everyone could tell that it was to be Grand Manan's victory all the way. The final score was 69-46. The following day was the Breaketts off to Black's Harbour and to St. George. These games turned out to be very unfortunate for our girls But, they made a comeback at home on December 6th, against St. George which ended with a score of 58-34. SHEAD SPORTS Since the last edition of the "Tides," The Tigers have been defeated twice-by Sumner and by Jonesport-Beals. Both teams held a large margin throughout the games. The Shead Tigers gained their first win of the season on Friday, December 20, in a game with Lubec. The Hornets had a 3 point lead at the end of the first quarter but Eastport took over and remained on top throughout the game. The final score was 64-46. High scorer for the Tigers was Reid Gray with 21 points. Shead's J.V. team have really given a fine showing thus far in the season. They have been defeated only once, by Sumner. These boys have really done some hustling this year. Don't forget the game, Saturday, the 28th, when the Alumni will play Shead's Varsity. The Tigrettes will also be playing. Remember the Varsity Club is still selling fire extinguishers. If interested in purchasing one, contact any player or cheerleader. BASKETBALL SCHEDULE GRAND MANAN SCHOOL NOTES We were delighted to receive the "Grand Manan School Post"-a news- paper published by and for the 600 stu- dents on Grand Manan. It is published monthly during the school year, and the Editor-in-chief is Robert Griffin. The following notes are excerpts from their very attractively printed Dec- ember 1968 issue. "Last year the students of G. M. H. S. undertook to support an orphan from Viet Nam, through the Foster Parents Plan. The name of their orphan is Ngu- yen Van Nam." Grand Manan Sports "Action Again" On November 29th the McAdam teams visited Grand Manan. It was the Breakers game all the way. The final score was 81-50. The next day the Break- ers travelled to Black's to have a game there and then one at St. George. The Breakers also won at Blacks with a score of 46-40. Following the game the team was taken to St. George where they fell. The score was 63-42. The Breakers played hard in all the games." Fri. Jan. 3 Sumner at Lubec Sat. Jan. 4.
