Campbell, Travis, Cross P. Williams, Parrot, Whittier, Finneran, Maytag The tremendous blizzard in February permitted the Gargoyles and Griffins to engage in their first combat, which was more on the amusing side of winter sport- ing than on the professional side. All kinds of ridiculous relays were run, and it was grand to see how well-matched the sides were. What points were won were few and hard to get. The second blizzard and the quarantine were the occasions which preci- s ' . Cole, S. Hamilton, Hall, Chase, Poore pitated the second Carnival. Bright colored posters announced its coming, and Taxi ' s artistic production garnered points for the Griffin Team. This time Miss Carpenter and the Council made rather elaborate plans, and it was truly the high spot of the season. It was of necessity restricted to the campus, and the grove became a strong- hold of wonderful ski trails, and overnight new hills seemed to spring up which had never before been discovered from the point of view of skiing! The ski contests took place on " Hearsey Hill " and included mainly form, judgment, dexterity, and long dis- tance sprints. This was a colorful sight with everyone sporting flashy ski clothes and team spirit reaching a new high. The snow sculpture was a new ad- venture but one which achieved im- mediate popularity. The most out- standing models were the Snow Queen, which won first place, and the Igloo, second. Great plans had been made for the Ice Events, but the heavy downfall of snow made them impossible, and the skaters [68]

doubles matches in which the Gargoyles outplayed the Griffins throughout, thereby winning all the points. The teams were as follows: Gargoyles Nancy Eccles and Andy Warburg against Griffins Mollie Chase and Marge Wick; Gargoyles Nadene Nich- ols and Nancy Gerrish against Griffins Taxi Littauer and Dotty Harvey. In the afternoon the ever-exciting championship hockey game was played. Time and time again the Gargoyles marched down the field and were repulsed by the Griffins who would capture the ball and head for a goal themselves. Neither team could get by the enemy goalkeeper, and when the referee blew the final whistle the score was o-o. The Varsity Hockey team, made up of the best players from each of the club teams, was announced as follows: Eleanor Balcke, Marie Bert- Connie Cross, Barbara Fowler, f " ยป!% ram, Dottie Garry, Betsy Lytle, Miggie Meyer, Julie Nelson, Mary Spaulding, Danna Whitlock, and Gitty Wind. But the day was not yet over. The November sun began to set quickly but both teams lined up eagerly for the traditional tug-of- war. The whistle blew, the rope was hastily Back Row: Eccles, Warburg, Wick, Chase Front Row: Gerrish, Nichols, Harvey, Littauer lifted, and the tugging began. One-pull- two-pull-and what is this we see? The trusty old rope parted company in the mid- dle, and the entire school was sprawling on the ground in a " down to earth " affair. And so, the Fall Field Day of 1939 ended. Back Row: Campbell, B. Wilson, Cowles, P. Williams, Spaulding, Bertram Front Row: Menschik, Waterhouse, Lytle, Howard, Meyer [67]

had to be content with being spec- tators and munching hot dogs. Prominent among the winter sporters were Sally Cole and Margi Hall, heading the list of skiers, and Gisela Bolten and Julie Nelson reigning as queens of the ice. Old Man Winter tended to hard- press the modern dance and basket- ball, for he gave us such perfect weather that we hated to concentrate on indoor activities. But modern dancing was more popular than ever and Miss Rhodes was overjoyed with some experienced girls to work with in her second year. Outstanding in dancing were Libby Travis, Con- nie Cross, and Phyllis Campbell, who amazed us all with their painless " falls. " Under Madame Miller ' s train- ing, fencing came into new promin- ence when Beverly Brooks, Miggie Meyer and Nadene Nichols went to Boston to take part in the annual contests conducted at M.I.T. by the Amateur Fencers League of America. Basketball moved indoors this year and the teams played hard and skilfully. When Nichols, B. Brooks, Meyer the total points were counted the Gar- goyles were five baskets ahead of the Grif- fins. The varsity team was: Betty Ellis, Betsy Lytle, Nadene Nichols, Adeline Waterhouse, Gitty Wind and Ann Zeitung. Riding was as much in the limelight as ever, and the Class A riders impressed us with their horsemanship: Priscilla Will- iams, Jane Parrot, Nancy Whittier, Betty Maytag and Mary Ellen Finneran.
