Seven New Teachers

ninth English and dramatics.
Among her likes, which are horse
back riding, swimming, knitting,
and music, knitting is her hobby,
although she is to begin a collec
tion of phonograph records as a
new hobby. Bette Davis, Norma
Shearer, Erroll Flynn, and Bill
Powell are her movie favorites.
Mr. M. J. De Lotto, the new
coach of A. H. S., is the next on
our list. He teaches physical edu
cation, and of course his favorite
sport is football. He also enjoys
He dislikes boys that think they
know how to play football and
can’t. So you boys who are going

hobbies, and he has no favorite

was principal of the Wiscassett
School. Among his many likes, he
places ships first. When asked
about his hobby he replied, “When
you’ve got a baby, you don’t have
time for a hobby. But if I did
have time, I would build ship
models.” He is going to get a pic
ture (of a ship, probably) for his
office to replace the one that now
occupies the space on the wall in
front of his desk.
He likes to watch football, play
tennis, and swim. He likes air
planes, Dick Tracy, reading, music,
teaching school, Gary Cooper,
Deanna Durbin, Washtubs and
Easy—in fact, he likes most any
thing. He dislikes “Bob” Taylor
and Richard Greene.
It gets his goat for the phone
to ring, six persons to come in and
ask for seven different things, the
express man to come with a pack
age, someone come in for change,
another person ask for the audi
torium, all at the same time. But
in spite of all that, he likes his job
