THE YEAR 1939-40 A.D. We arrived September 27th and were terribly excited about being Seniors at long last — and,— our Senior privileges! First and foremost the Senior Parlor with its new radio bringing us football games, symphon ies and static; general meeting place for research work in studies and people (alias bull sessions) ; coffee on first Sundays; toasting ourselves by the fire or on the porch. Yes, the Parlor is one privi- lege we won ' t forget in a hurry. Next— Senior Saturdays in Boston; and — Senior lights! With Miss Hearsey at Pomps The first Saturday this fall was memo- rable. Pomps Pond was the scene of action, action consisting of picnicking, feeling the water and playing many unique games on the way home. Then Senior teas when everyone ate and ate and tried to see who had the best at whose tea. The teas cer- tainly filled the requirements -and the people. Then came corridor stunt nights when we Seniors portrayed Life advertise- ments (Duchess, the Ovaltine kid) and latest news flashes. Pinch me! Are we really going? It ' s wonderful! Our Senior picnic at Ipswich with cold, clear breezes, bright moon, Senior Parlor warm fire, cold white dunes, onions- hamburgers — onions — cocoa — more on- ions. At last we felt " Seniorized. " One day we heard a crashing above us and found it was the Fourth Floor leaving, bag and baggage, and they weren ' t even sore about it. We can ' t say we blame them, either. Abbey with ping-pong table, radio in the rec room, spacious laundry, blue- tiled showers, silent bells, teachers ' rooms with fireplaces and private baths, and a kitchenette for teas! Winchell says, quote, Abbey House and New Tennis Courts [79]
