Languages THERE have been those tables that make the dining room sound like a foreign-relations club, for issuing from them were heard queer conversations in French, German, and Spanish. These were just an overflow from the bubbling class rooms where we struggled with grammar and reading, from the rudiments up. Rules and idioms galore filled our brains along with the complexities of Latin. All these, no matter how bewildering, have left us dropping a " merci, " " gracias, " or " danke schon, " as the case may be, with the great- est of ease. Hilda Ruby Baynes, B. es L. French Weather forecaster, " bonne nuit, " friendly hospitality, reliable Repub- lican, afternoon coffee. Helene M. Crooks, A.B., M.A. French Literary sleeping potions, hair styles, daily jaunts downtown, " Vive la France " . Anne Rechnitzer, Ph.D. French, German Hilarious tables, unrivaled sense of humor, excels in languages and ski- ing, parties plus personality, mod- ernistic room. Harriet McKee, A.B., M.A. Latin " Little girl " of the faculty, wonder- ful sense of humor, always smiling and gay, daily treks around the circle. :: A: Helen Dunford Robinson, A.B. Latin Friendly felicity, promptness and neatness, " Let ' s have a little fresh air, " Boston expeditions. Justina Ruiz Spanish Resplendent with mantillas and maracas, chuckle, trips to the fourth floor, humor a la Espana. [15]

I ¥ Math and Science HILARIOUS classes in which Miss Tucker brought to life molecules and their little playfellows, the atoms, consumed two periods a day. Scientific theories as well as brand new nylon stock- ings were unraveled before our very eyes. Physics class, with Mrs. Poland in com- mand, wrangled theories and laws. The mysteries of plants, stars and electricity were revealed. Hyperbolas, parabolas, tri- angles and polygons formed a maze of math, but guided by Miss Hancock, all found their proper places which we hope they will keep. Wf ' %■ ft Isabel Maxwell Hancock, A.B.

" Mrs. Roberta Gilmore Poland, A.B., M.A. Physics, General Science, Mathematics Mentor through Math maze or Physics haze, the eternal case of the window-stick, inexhaustible pa- tience, clad in beige polo coat.

DOWNSTAIRS, Tuesdays and Thurs- days, a number of students sat around two long tables, learning the fun- damentals of art and architecture. Upstairs in spick and span studio, many young artists sketched while Miss Hatch kept busy running to John-Esther and back. Or- chids to her for the grand exhibits this year.
