Intervale On February fourth of this year, a beautiful new world was opened up to us Seniors. We came to know truly what previously had been a mere vague impression. We began on that day to dis- cover the magic behind the word " Intervale " . We felt the atmosphere immediately upon arrival. A huge sleigh drawn by four horses conveyed us to the " Belle vue " . The sign " Welcome, Abbot " which first met our eyes made us feel at home at once. Within an hour we were all arrayed in our sport togs, and ready for anything. Thus began four days in which we tried every imaginable type of winter sport. It was wonderful having the toboggan slide and skating rink right outside the door. In the wee, small hours of the morning we watched the sun color the mountains with a crimson hue. It was our loving com- panion, Miss Bailey, who divulged this early morning secret. At night our main amusement was a walk in the pitch black to North Conway. Will we ever forget Betty Mac ' s wild tele- phone call? We were so surprised to find we had a Sue Carroll in our midst. One of our chief pastimes was posing in front of numerous cameras. One of the photographers called Jo-Jo the " Abbess of Abbot. " What could he have meant?? Speaking of pastimes, we can ' t afford to leave out the food. Kay Bowden and Jarman took prizes in that line, ' though we all were close on their heels. The last night we were there, snow began to fall lazily. We all made our way through the " Cathedral " woods to " Wyehut " where we sat around four crackling fires. There we ate delicious flapjacks and sang every song we could think of. The next morning the snow was still falling. This time the Merriman Woods was the scene of our activities. We snowshoed and snowshoed with Miss Bailey, who later took more pictures of our wet, bedraggled selves. A strange sadness came over us all when the time for departure drew near. It was hard to leave the place we had grown to love, the place that had bound us more firmly together, not only as a class, but as a group of true friends. We will cherish forever the memory of those four marvelous days.

Intervale Softness — of dusty, olive-green, scrub pines and lavender-mauve birch twigs against the dark sombreness of cedar and hemlock. Softness — of pale-green lichen-moss on the smooth, mottled-gray, masculine-sinewed bark of blue beeches. Softness — of powdered-snow baby-pillows tucked in the gnarled elbows of old oak trees ; and fluffy cloud-reflections in the polished-blue steel of a stream. Softness — of a lazy faintly-whimsical curl of train-smoke against periwinkle-gray dawn-touched Mt. Washington. Mary Roys
