" The Cradle Song " Stars hearsed like fury to become pious nuns as our play " The Cradle Song " took shape. Adie, Jo, Janie and Nancy were just a few who succeeded in bringing tears to our eyes. Then with hopes and fears, we prac- ticed Frannie ' s keen Ring Song which we sang to the school in the McKeen Rooms on the momentous night when we received those long-anticipated heralds of gradua- tion. These we displayed boastfully to the " young ones " and twiddled them with pride in English class! That was really the beginning of the end so soon to come. Close on the heels of spring vacation came the Prom, and we kept Western Union busy arranging for our " Toms, Dicks and Harrys. " Our young hopeful Romeos started shining on Friday night at a super-long calling hour, and on Satur- day we treated them to a luncheon at the Andover Inn. We observed tea time at Sunset, guests of Miss Hearsey, and then came dinner and the dance in the cleverly and beautifully camouflaged gym. " May I introduce — ? ' Hearts and Flowers [75]

CABLE SKI TOW .INTERVALE V N. H. . TWO TRM1 %N SLOPE " Here it comes! ' Intervale at Last " Shall we try it! ' sell ' s slope where with Miss Carpenter ' s help we learned additional technique for the harder slopes to come. Sue ' s ring, lost in the snow, caused much commotion and emotion. Next was the excitement of the skimobiles on Cranmore, and the heights to which they rose! We were breathless! What a thrill we had skiing down from the halfway point to the foot! And re- member the movies on Saturday night when we were packed sardine-like in the tiny bus while Sherman, drive r with the quaint chapeau, bravely endured our ren- dition of " Gee it was swell! " Winnie the Pooh waddled in and out among the shad- ows as Miss Hearsey read his adventures after our hymn-singing session. Our feel- ings a mixture of joy and sadness, we com- posed praises of Intervale to sing to the underclassmen on our return to Abbot. In the spring we reveled in the new freedom of unchaperoned Saturday leaves and late lights, as well as peanut butter and jam at Baronial! What bliss! We re- Safely Down There We Go [74]

We were very proud of our " brighties " when they shone at the Cum Laude meet- ing, and never to be forgotten was the Senior Banquet, followed by the turning over of our beloved parlor (sans porch!) to the Senior Mids. After a quick change we warbled our " Where, oh where ' s " all over the Abbot world, as did our long line of Senior predecessors. Desperate cramming with confusion could mean only one thing — final exams. Then in rapid succession came rally night, anxious chapel awards and announcements, balancing of cakes and plates at our garden party, Draper Dramatics, Bacca- laureate, the last chapel, and our imminent (and eminent) graduation. Is it possible that a whole year has passed since the Class of 1940 planted its tree and marched so solemnly in blue caps and gowns to South Church? One of these days, perhaps for our fiftieth reunion, the Class of 1941 will be hobbling back with canes and grandchildren to dig up our treasure and to reminisce about these our " memories dear. " 1941 ' s Growing Responsibilities Good-bye to 1940 — We ' re Next 1941 in 1951 THE Bronx local was late as usual, so we wandered over to the information booth to ask plaintively how long we had to wait. The encyclopedia on duty an- swered, " You just missed it, child " — an inner chord responded and we lifted startled eyes to behold Polly Packard, run- ning Grand Central, and who should be handing her special bulletins but Secre- tary Knox. A voice boomed " Intervale Express leaving, track 18. " Straining our eyes, we recognized through their ski paraphernalia Grieco, Little, Mary Martin, Moody, Selden, Campbell, and Tyer. As they passed, Conductor Mamie Martin told them where to get off. Close on their heels come Biart and Bondy, arguing for the seat by the window on the Taft Special. " Ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience " — Perkie ' s bell-like tones an- nounced to the listening world the big event of the day: " Miss Beverly Brooks, ac- companied by Stott, is leaving on her fare- well concert tour before switching to art — or is it literature? " Not to be gut- done, Sue Long on Glamour, arrived from Hollywood, and with her was little [76]
