19 34 The Abbot Circle Intervale On the bright Monday following mid-year exams a train pulled into Intervale. We, the 1934 Senior Class of Abbot, crowded out of it and made a dash for the sleigh. Although there were thirty-five of us, we squeezed in somehow; and as two big horses drew us along the snowv road to the Belleview, we looked at the countryside and breathed in the clear cold mountain air. Running into the hotel, we glanced around, warmed our fingertips over a crackling fire, then scrambled after our baggage and hurried up to find our rooms. No time was lost in changing our clothes. The quiet valley of Intervale soon had Abbot girls shuffling about on snowshoes or gliding along on skis, poking into all its nooks and crannies. We slid quietly along on skis through beautiful woods. The trees were very tall, old, and stately. Long shafts of sunlight coming down through the lacy roof of needles touched the snow here and there to a diamond-like brilliance. The following morning we experienced a typical Belleview breakfast. It consisted of fruit, cereal, muffins, double orders of steak, potatoes, and coffee and triple orders of griddle cakes. However, after a morning of skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and skating we all seemed to be able to manage double orders of everything for dinner. That evening we went to a flapjack party in the Cathedral woods. It was cold, very cold, — eighteen below, in fact. The sky was filled with stars and seemed exceptionallv black because of the contrasting snow-covered countryside. When our guide had led us across the tracks and into the pine woods, an indescribable eerie atmosphere closed in about us. The trees were nearly the same size, rising some thirty feet to the lowest branch. There was no underbrush, just large tree trunks here, there, and over there — nearly artificial in their evenness. When we looked overhead the stars seemed entangled in the lacy branches. And the cold was the biting kind that makes one think of the wolf ' s dismal wail, and a lone trapper lost in the woods, — perhaps in a place like this where all the trees are the same for miles. The cheerv fires certainly were a welcome sight and we ate our pancakes with gusto. On the third morning a light snow fall veiled the mountains. But that afternoon as we assembled to say " Good-bye " to Intervale and mount the train, the clouds suddenly parted, allowing the glorious sunshine to flood the valley. It was all so wonderful; we had ha ' d such a marvelous time; and we did hate to leave. Di in hi H u.i. 39

19 34 The Abbot Circle Intervale Songs (Tune: Shanghai LiP) Last year we heard them talk about it We knew that it would be such fun And now we ' ve been and know What fun it is to go, for Winter sports at Intervale. What glorious skating! Exciting sleigh rides! Skiing and moonlight walks Flap-jack parties at " ZERO " weather All at Intervale. We ' ve memories that will last forever Remaining fresh down thru the vears Reminding us anew Of friends and frolics too In ' 34 at Intervale. (Tune : A Little Bit of Heaven) Sure a little bit of heaven Fell from out the sky one day, And it nestled in New Hampshire Not so many miles away; And when the angels found it Sure it looked so sweet and fair Thev said " Suppose we leave it For it looks so peaceful there. " So thev sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pine trees grow, They ' re the finest ones that can be found No matter where you go. And thev placed the mountains round it Just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished Sure thev called it Intervale. 41
