Confident but Drooping Santa Merry Christmas to All Vacation s Here! Above: Midyears Ahead Below: " Frisky ' as Ever packing was done, we sang our Christmas table songs, and finished the celebration with our customary carol sing in the Mc- Keen Rooms. Next day, after we had slept a mite and had been awakened by the chanting choir, we crammed into buses and cars, and deserted our dorms as we headed for home ! January seventh we came back to earth again with much to be done before mid- years. We were voluntarily " at home " because of the flu epidemic which, to our amazement, even kept us away from church! High on the P. A. hill there was a flu epidemic also, and calling nights and the Fidelio concert and dance had to be cancelled. But the Curtis Beach Marion- ette show with the big bad wolf and the mysterious smoking hero cheered us up, and Margaret Payson Bliss had us almost rolling in the aisles or reduced to tears as she gave her monologues. Then came that fearsome week of midyears after which the Seniors took off for Intervale and those who were left behind were allowed to go to the movies at night, and attended the Kirsten Flagstad concert in Boston. To the Seniors, on their return, we sang " Here they come! Week end spent at Intervale And now they ' re back To classes, books and morning mail, And then exam returns When each one learns — the worst! [65]

through our dry throats. A.D.S. enter- tained us royally with three plays — " Cath- erine Parr, " depicting the stormy temper of Henry VIII, " Men Folk, " telling of the tragedy of the sea; and " The Travelers, " full of flickering lights and weird sound effects. Christmas was now creeping upon us very rapidly, and Fidelio piled off to Law- rence to broadcast British carols for the benefit of the Bureau of Medical Aid to China. Many were doing their part for other charities too, by knitting on Friday nights in chummy circles in Sherman or Abbey, sewing on squares for Red Cross baby afghans in Homestead, and making would-be dresses for Hindman dolls. Fri- day night callers continued to arrive amid squeals and groans over the appearance or not of those significant little white slips. The vie played and the sound of masculine voices drifted up from below, mingled with feminine giggles. A.C.A. had its annual Christmas party for many local children who threw bean bags, ate ice cream and sandwiches, and were wide-eyed at the presents handed out by our competent but drooping Santa (Fferbie). Mrs. Gray read Dickens ' Christmas Carol, always our favorite, and on Sunday we presented our own beautiful Christmas service.

Hurdling Hearsey ' s Time Out Cocoa and Weenies i We wish you luck, And hope you passed without mistake All those exams, And awful tests you had to take, From Latin, Chem, and French To History through the cent — uries. You ' ve had a great big week end With skiing and skating and such, And having no rules, and no thought of school And certainly eating too much! So here you are, Back again with us to stay — For one more term Together we will work and play, We ' ll sing your praises all O class of Forty-One! " The second semester brought Miss Friskin back to us, much to our joy. She delighted us that first Saturday with one of her exquisite concerts. Winter was really here now; the blizzards came and went, but we plowed on, over and under. Many mornings we found Mr. Robb slaving with a tired mien — and a snow shovel — as he dug out Abbot Hall, or we were awakened by the scraping of our friend the snowplow as it groaned around the circle. There were those Saturday after- noons when brave A. A. A. members stood shivering by the laundry to sell us hot Above: Tea Totaling Below: Cozy Wednesdays [66] ¥
