... 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. "
