19 3 2 The Abbot Circle Intervale Intervale! The very word makes anyone at Abbot who ever has the chance to go there sit up and listen! Going to Intervale for three days after the mid-year exams is the Seniors ' privilege at Abbot each year. Sometimes, just before we leave, some few girls think that perhaps they would rather not go. They usually do go finally (they are unluckv if they don ' t!) and would they have missed it? Just ask them and I can guarantee a very decisive " no " ! From the moment that we get on the train to go, until we get off when we come back to Abbot, excitement reigns everywhere and everybody is supremely happy. This vear we didn ' t think there would be much snow, but when the train drew into the Intervale station we knew that we would have plenty. In one day, in fact, almost six inches fell! As usual we began our fun by driving to the " Bellevue " in a huge sleigh drawn bv four horses. From that moment on we were busy at all times doing many and varied things. The skating, sleighing, skiing, tobogganing, " cuttering " , and trailing were all enjoved by everyone — especially by those who had never before been in a place so well suited to winter sports. We had the annual climb up Mount Surprise, and also the " flapjack " party in which there was a race to see who could eat the greatest number of " flapjacks " . Are we or aren ' t we surprised to find that Helen won the race? But then, it would never do to single poor Helen out! What about all the rest of us who had nothing less than steak and fried potatoes for breakfast? or two or three helpings of pancakes and sausages? We just couldn ' t help being hungry and, as far as I can see, no one so much as thought about calories — they just ate and ate! We were obliged to retire at eleven o ' clock and, after a busy day out in that famously invigorating mountain air, no one objected strenuously to going to bed. There is nothing much more thrilling than was the walk to North Conway after supper for a soda — especially when it was snowing hard and the world was covered by a thick white blanket. This sight, those of us who saw it would say, was one of our " big moments " . Another sight, never to be forgotten bv those who saw it, was the sunrise up over Mount Washington. Miss Bailey brought the attention of all of us to this magnificent picture, and the memory of it will remain with us always. We Seniors want everyone of you under-classmen to be sure and take advantage of these three days full of fun and overflowing with good cheer and surprises next vear. Don ' t miss the experience because it comes only " once in a life time. " 49
