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.

The crowd around the bulletin board had meant just one thing — the Senior Play! Night after night our indispensable man- ager, Connie Cross, made us jump verbal hoops in the speech room. It didn ' t seem any time at all until the costumes had ar- rived and the night of the dress rehearsal was upon us. That dress rehearsal! It was, just as we expected, a nightmare. Strains of a minuet in competition with the " Big B.G. " from Ellie ' s portable, lines re- peated over and over, furniture shifted, stiff collars cutting into the necks of un- fortunate gentlemen, people sleeping any- where — so the night went. Yawning stars were glad of the cocoa and sandwiches before the final lap — and so to bed. Saturday came too fast! The time was almost at hand! A breathless hush, and slowly the curtain rose on our Duchess as Hill, the correct butler, and J. Cowles, simply nifty as Mr. Bennet. Things began to happen as fluttery Mrs. Bennet, per- fectly played by Jacquy Proctor, pattered onto the stage. Enter Lady Lucas and her daughter Charlotte, splendidly done by SENIOR PLAY Ellie Balcke and Barbara Brown. It seemed as though Webster hadn ' t made any adjectives good enough to describe Gitty, Sally and Libby as the three charm- ing Bennet girls. They were all superb! There were some especially outstanding bits, such as the entrance of Gisela, divine as Darcy, and Andy looking too smooth as Bingley, and both of them worthy of the highest possible praise. Mary Spaulding as Lady Catherine did beautifully, as did Doris Sawyer as Miss Bingley. And who will ever forget " Hill, take your mother upstairs, " or the lovely cold tea? Special credit goes to all the girls who had small parts but who were as necessary to the whole as were the leading characters. The curtain call, so well-planned by Mrs. Gray for the benefit of audience and pho- tographer as well, found the curtain balky and we were left stranded but tired and happy as the welcome applause echoed in our ears.
