The Abbot Circle 1926 Snterbale " Oh, wonderful wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that out of all whooping! " — " As You Like It. " In this day and age it is said that the adjective " wonderful " is used for such trivial things that it loses the fulness of its meaning. But in Shakespeare ' s time, it was used only properly, so we turn to his quotation to be very sure you under- stand that in saying Intervale was wonderful, we mean it. No one could have wished for more perfect weather. Even Miss Bailey, that inveterate " Intervale-goer " , said that it was really all that could be hoped for. We felt the softness of Intervale snow as it came down, and we felt its softness when we fell off skis and toboggans. Between our " uprisings " and " down- sittings, " we ate — oh! how we ate! However, because we expect that you will be there some day, we will not try to describe in any kind of detail those three glorious days in the mountains. Descriptions of those days would be useless, for that matter, for they are a pleas- ure that must be experienced before it can be fully understood and appreciated. It was almost with tears that we said goodbye to Intervale, and to that most lovable of guides, Mr. Bassett. 38

The Abbot Circle 1926 Gret Vanderschmidt was our captain bold, Fonty, her staunch first mate, The log was kept by Alice Cole, Perk, our purser, kept books straight. Anstiss Bowser is the look-out, Who looks around to see Just what is going on about And wards off mutiny. The hard test came in the final stretch, When we really had to fight The heavy storms and rocky shoals, But — we ' re the purple and white. This fact alone can answer why The ship still rides in state It may be battle-worn and scarred, But it rides — awaiting fate. Its race is nobly finished now, With its colors floating high, Its spirit will live forever, The purple and white for aye. Above, when the bright sun has left us, And the sky is a grackle-head blue, There glows in the distant horizon A smouldering purple hue. M.S. L. 37

The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 Snterbale iking (Tune — " Jingle Bells " ) Oh, we have been away, And we would like to stay. But " B. B. " said " Oh no, no, no, " You must come back today. " We ' ve skied and skated too, And that ' s not all to do. But p ' raps that ' s all we ' d better say, For you ' ll be there some day. Intervale, Intervale, we are all for you! Coffee, pies and griddle-cakes, and don ' t forget those steaks! Intervale, Intervale, oh how we long for you. A comedown from those sirloin steaks to good old Irish stew! (Tune — " Three Blind Mice " — Round) No more Math, no more Psyc. We ' ve had a lot of fun, we wish you could have come. We didn ' t have room in our trunks for you, But if we had we ' d have brought you too. You ' re called the funny, funny faculty, But you ' re all right! (Tune — ' ' Solomon Levi " ) We are a bunch of Abbot girls, We ' ve come from Intervale; And if you ask us why in the world We ' re looking as thin as a rail. We ' ll tell you now we ' ve had a good time, We ' re back just for our mail. Of course we ' re glad to see you, Abbot, And thereby hangs our tale. No Lit or Psyc. Tra-la-la-la-la! No soup or pickles Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha ! 39
