Christine Robinson as the Aide du Docteur almost stole the show without uttering a single word! These were supported by Mollie Chase and Jane Littauer, whose performances and voices were rare. Mimi Shields was the charming " narrator. Con- gratulations to Mile. Baynes under whose direction the play was produced. Senior-Mid Plays Hats off to Joan Waugh who in Bargains in Cathay played the sales girl who had her troubles with the book department. Also to Sue Woodman, the smoothie lover who makes a very handsome man, we should say! Betty Mayt ag did beautifully as the guardian of the book department, and deserves special credit because she took the part at a very late date. Eleanor Knox as the floor walker, Helen Stott as the delivery boy, Dotty White as the " lady with memories " and Nancy Gerrish, as the unexpected gentleman from New York, gave excellent support to the leads. In Joint Owners in Spain we were very conscious of heckling hags played by Jo, Hartwell, Ginny Gourley and Mimi Scam- mon. Dorie Jones as the steadying in- fluence was more glamorous than guard- ing, but she somehow managed to get them all living happily together in the Old Ladies ' Home. Then came The Princess Marries the Page and Jane Towne was the loveliest princess we ever hope to see, while Beverly Brooks of the leaping ability was her piping page. Rabling, hiding behind a perfect disguise, played the part of the bouncing, irate king- father, and Mimi Calder the Lord High Chancellor. Beautiful scenery and ex- quisite costumes on principals and soldiers, made this the perfect fairy story.

... in which we present a few choice bits worth remembering. Our picnic began dismally when Jacquy took to the rec room floor with a thud be- fore we had even left the place! It was ex- cess jitterbugging, and her progress from large supporting cast to clubfoot type of shoe, and from wheels to crutch . . . was eagerly cheered by her classmates . . . Soon our byword " Done move a ting " came into being when the photog- rapher arrived to take Senior pictures and we posed as glamor girls with flowing tresses and downcast eyes, or as coy cuties with curls . . . We sang gaily on all bus rides anything from " Aunt Demetri Is a Pismire " to " He Leadeth Me " ... Came Noel and we sent each other Taxi ' s waif angels and came back to talk about our vacation escapades ... At Intervale much curiosity was aroused by Tene ' s man at the movies and Mollie ' s unfortunate landing. We missed Ferdinand, who ambulanced off to an appendectomy just as midyear exams were beginning. Dottie Schwiebert forgot her ski boots, Marge Wick her suit- case, and Danna had a bit of difficulty getting down Cranmore . . . We gleefully SENIOR-ITY and MEN-IORITY bounded into Boston without repression and drowsily tried to keep awake through Senior lights . . . Mary Dean caused us all to be Schick-tested until we were veritable sieves . . . Sue and Mari flew home on Alpha weekends and Wils faithfully drank her evening orange juice... Some ad- venturous and ravenous ones cooked hot dogs in the Parlor although we found Baronial the better way. Riv and Barbara Fowler did a mean jive and made foul faces. Gitty gave us the Griffin entertain- ment with beach umbrellas and musical scores a la Broadway. We ate the alumnae office out of doughnut holes and looked uncomprehendingly at our new caps and gowns . . . We all went on diets that fell by the wayside with chocolate steamed pudding and lush brownie jobs tempting us too often . . . All year we haunted down- town, drank our cokes, exchanged con- fidences, and were constantly " Sister Goons " singing " Near. . .near. . .near. " [75]
