[42] 9niesuMiL e 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, They said, " Suppose we leave it, For it looks so peaceful there. " So they sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pine trees grow; They ' re the finest ones than can be found No matter where you go. And they placed the mountains ' round it Just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished, Sure they called it Intervale! February 4-7, 1939, Intervale, New Hampshire [43] Abbot, Abbot, I ' ve been thinking What a fine world this would be If you could all spend your week-ends Up at Intervale with me. Jleaswl m PaAMwa Lush (appropriately shocked): Sadie, did you eat without your shoes? Sadie (unabashed ): I certainly didn ' t eat with them! Connie described the lights in a theatre as " gondoliers. " Maybe it was the company! " Fish, " singing lustily, " Sam and eggs for breakfast! " Nannie (on viewing Intervale ' s male contingent): There ' s your chance to go steady! Mr. Emerson (as Annie returned from a " quick one " on the twister trail): Been snowing in them thar hills? Continuous performance — daily through midnight: " Happy birthday, dear Mooney! " Annie: Bo, Bellows and I have bunks. Bobo: Hm — furnishings to fit the personality at Maple Villa! een in Connie late-ly learning subtle fascinations of — poker. Riddle — guess who! Sitting on the back wall in the movies, reminding us of six black cats on Hallowe ' en. Answer — Ca, Bellows, Bonnie, Leland, Hill and Waugh. Miss Hearsey catching on, oh so quickly, to the art of tipping one ' s sugar into one ' s tea. Significance — he really cares. Roger defending himself against a literal bombardment of snowballs on the station platform. Fishie, Kiki, and Mac on snowshoes for the first time — and to their horror Miss Hearsey ' s camera catching all the downs. (There were no ups!) Nimble dancing feet in ski boots until the novelty wore off, or maybe it was the strength. Then came socks! Connie and Sadie in circles to ' ' Hold Tight. ' ' And Well Aeu i tf-QA fd The thrill of seeing feet of snow — and Intervale. The beauty of the mountains in the bright sun of Saturday morning. The excitement of the ski tow and the heights to which it could take us. The brilliance of the moon as we rode to the movies. The Sunday night supper under the pines and stars, with an open fire and frankfurters to cook. The peace of sitting together before the fire as Miss Hearsey read aloud and Woodie played the " Moonlight Sonata. " The ties of friendship made and strengthened by our days of common experience and comradeship. The mingled joy and sadness of returning to familiar faces and places. [45] 9ritesw.ale M(ma£ Tune: Sweet Rosy 0 ' Grady I once knew an Indian Who exclaimed to me, " I don ' t get this skiing game, It ' s foolish as can be! Woosh! you go, then climb a mile! " Well, maybe he ' s not wrong, But if I could stay at Intervale I ' d ski my whole life long. Tune: Take Me Out to the Ball Game Take me back to New Hampshire, Take me back to The Inn, Give me some skates and skis and poles, Give me some snow to fill up the holes Where I fell while doing the Christie; Think nothing of broken knees ! For we ' ll soon be back to our books And to memories. Tune: Merry Widow Walt% We ' ve been skating, we ' ve been skiing, We ' ve had. fun, Broken bindings, aching shoulders, Now it ' s done; Though we ' ve left no broken limbs Up among the hills, Ne ' ertheless we ' ve left our hearts Where we had spills. Tune: The Old Apple Tree There ' s a little old Inn in New Hampshire Which will live in my memory, Where we had flapjacks for breakfast, Where we shared our Simmons mattresses, Where we skied on our pants and our knees. Say good-bye, say good-bye, Say good-bye to the swift Twister Trail, We ' ll remember when we ' re eighty How we coasted down at sixty ' Round the pines and the peaks of Intervale. [46] More good food and lots of fun, Good ski trails and lots of sun, Snow-mobiles and ski tows too W ith toboggans there for you. Have you done your English? " Ugh! A French test!

Though soon our paths will lie apart Though new careers for us will start, We, unafraid, Hopes, unimpaired, Can face whate ' er the years will bring Because we have our Senior ring. May this reminder keep us true To our ideals, and hopes renew; When doubts invade And we have dared To falter at life ' s unkind sting, May we be strengthened by this ring. Charlotte Skinner j nee a cma Recall, O Tree, more than this sheltered life When shortly it is done. Recall that here we half-perceived the heights Awaiting to be won. The careless days of childhood lie behind; Our lives stretch on before. We glimpse new realms, and our untried, young minds Would hasten to explore. If visions, touched by Truth ' s harsh breath, should fade, If Wisdom proves unkind, Destroying that sweet, blissful, trusting faith Which lulled the dormant mind, If, facing light, to a far kindlier shade Our aching eyes would turn, Recall to us the will which here was ours To live, and living, learn. Marjory Hill [51] tluMmfiA-ufi RING SONG Years rilled with loveliness of life, Of work, of play, are centered ' round These walls, tradition bound, here where Deep-reaching happiness was found. Days spent in following visions bright, Days rilled full of sun and laughter, Of learning how to live with life — These will stay whate ' er comes after. These years will be within our hearts, A heritage we ' ll not forget. Our gleaming rings reminding us Of standards high, which here we set. Mary Woodman TREE SONG Live and grow O thou, the noblest of nature ' s peers, Reminding those to come of conquered years, That they, through love of thee, new faith may know, Live, and grow. Live and sing, Thou minstrel of the winds, new tales and old, Of work accomplished and of joys untold. To those of future years our spirit bring, Live and sing. Live and pray, Spread out thy sheltering shade for great and small, And with thy benediction bless them all. Retell the treasured meaning of this day, Live — and pray. Mary Adams Koch [52] . . . Q.E.

Think how our impressive hero must feel when his lines and his actions de- mand the withdrawal of the ring and the license from his pocket and he discovers too late that he has forgotten both! What happens when a barrel is to be rolled out from behind a screen, but after a feverish search it is discovered, to the horror of all con- cerned, that it has been standing in full view of the audience all the time? And then to have the onlookers find to their great amusement that there is no bottom in the barrel ! Even if this incident has long been forgotten by the audience, we doubt if it has left the minds of the cast of — oh dear, we forget — was it one of the Senior-Mid Plays? We know there are at least two Seniors who remember a sudden crash in the mid- dle of their heavy love scene. It was only a picture off the set falling onto a table, but it must have seemed like the crash of the whole performance to those involved. It ' s always encouraging when the main character makes his grand entrance and all the decorations fall dramatically on his head! Why do telephones and doorbells always ring long, painful moments too late when the lines make a big issue of them? Or brother fails to indicate departure until sister sets him off with a start toward the nearest exit with the unexpected question, " Where are you going? " There are many accidents that are amusing to look back upon, but oh, how tragic they seem at the time!

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles, And to wipe the weeping eyes, And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am In whatsoe ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts To keep and cultivate; And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life While keeping at Thy side; Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified.
