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 " .

Their Boston ex- cursions were foiled at every turn with the exception of our one fascinating venture to the silversmiths. Mary Elaine Dodge, A.B. Household Science B.H.S. Wavy hair, jade ring, green and red sweater, brave " fixer upper " of our cooking mishaps, " What I mean to say is. . . " gg Mrs. Eunice Murray Campbell, A.B.

House Superintendent Connoisseur of the better things in life, buzzing here and there, wel- come rec-room crasher, always hap- py- Health and Physical Education AFTERNOONS find us scampering to gym and rec room or in all directions, by car or on foot, for sports with Miss Carpenter and Miss Rhodes. Good posture, poise, grace and coordination come, in varying degrees, as a result of our efforts. Casualties, colds and cuts are mended and healed up quickly by our indefatigable Mrs. Duncan, who is so on the job that our ills are mostly gone before they come. I Mary Carpenter, B.S. Physical Education Friend in need, skiing and riding ex- pert, nicknames, popular table, absent-mindedness and surprises.
