Mapping a Course Surveying the Situation Looking Back WEDNESDAY, September 25th, found us hanging draperies, mov- ing furniture, and generally getting to work. We had our conferences with Miss Sweeney and were soon sitting nervously in our first classes. The first week we were busy making new friends on our picnic at Pomps Pond, at the Old Girl — New Girl Party where we danced an energetic square dance and were baffled by the faculty chasses, and at the Senior Tea which was held this year in the Senior Parlor. The fall days were lovely and we were busy riding and canoeing our time away over the week ends. We were fascinated by the prancings of Ferdinand t he bull, the puppet show, and the other antics of corridors and cottages on their stunt nights. We were delighted with the Hampton Institute Quartette and the beautiful program presented by Ella Belle Davis, soprano. We went to Boston in the rain but were fully rewarded by Helen Hayes and Maurice Evans in their unique rendition of " Twelfth Night " ; and some of us were lucky enough to hear Marion Anderson in Boston. During those early days we were taught what to do in case of fire, and with hilari- ous shouts we leaped from the window and wriggled down the outside wall, carefully Opening Out-of-Door Days: Above— Pomps.

LIFE is activity, movement, growth, change; at its best it blends them all and fires us with its own contagious spark. The spark may be the wisdom of our speakers, the skillful strokes of a painter, the catching lines of a play; or it may burst from within, kindled by fearful anticipation in a student recital, the exhilaration of canoe trips, rides or walks. It smolders, presently glows, flickers feebly, and soon burns brightly, and as it burns we are affected by its light. We change and grow as a result of that tiny spark planted within or caught from without. The Abbot year, with all its inspiration, sup- plies the spark for those who seek it; they may then look back and know that here they consecrated life to the best. Homestead Sherman Abbey

Then there were those sur- prising nights when we drilled with pallid faces and rolled-up hair. October ended with our exciting Hallowe ' en dinner and party which we attended dressed as adver- tisements. Remember " Toughie " and " Softie " — and the " Four Roses " ? At this time in our gay young lives came our long-anticipated week end, and there was a general exodus. Those who were left behind had no meagre excite- ment, however, for the Andover-Exeter Game was played and we were properly recognized by the Exeter contingent as it marched by our gates. Thanksgiving verses soon brought us back to normal. Bashka Paeff, famous sculptress, gave us a demon- stration of her technique, using Em as a model. On Thanksgiving eve we had our traditional service, and the next day, un- daunted by snow, we scattered about the countryside with relatives and friends having a marvelous time and consuming much turkey. The Song Contest between the various corridors and cottages brought forth our best home talent. Homestead with its " Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair " song and rendition was the winner. AJoud and energetic evening was had by all, topped off by a lively square dance which left us hardly able to whisper Exeter Passes Our Gates — Alas Exeter Cheering Section
