" A Little Bit of Heaven ' After all the patient (?) years of waiting — Intervale! Will we ever forget it? The suspense of that four-hour trip would have killed us if it hadn ' t been for the popcorn and the crazy bridge hands plus the fact that each hill got bigger and bigger ' til finally (ranmore raised its vicious head. (Oh! little did we know!!) And by the time we ' d relayed our- selves to the Inn, we were more than ready for the first of those many divine, enormous meals. Then Cranmore!! All of Miss Carpenter ' s assurances back in the comfortable Claremont flew out of our heads. We were weak! Jaws dropped, goggles were ad- justed, and some frantically bought tickets for the " half-way mark. " But it looked cruel and wicked! They certainly loved us that day — sprawling forms clut- tering up the slope and sitz-marks dotting the trail. We had fun, but don ' t forget those fabulous les- sons from the tall blond — not that they helped ! ! ! The movie that night was good for laughs — Twinkle Watts et al. Then bed — with the day-scholars ' hair in rags and Bee ' s frantic gong ringing through the halls. Then quiet??? Wednesday: Esther ' s pick-ups, Miss Hearsey ' s evening reading, the marshmallows and Levi ' s col- lect telephone call. And Thursday morning Miss Hearsey saying that she " ' had meant to ski, but the snow and wind were just too much! " At least the storm was a blessing to somebody! The trip back was hyste rical : bridge again, making and frantic learning of our songs, and the mad rush to get off the train. No, we never will forget Intervale ! [30]

WEATHER Hurricane fol- lowed by a col- lision of Saturn and Mars. THE FUTURE TIMES ABBOT ALUMNAE EDITION Vol. 19, No. 45 AXDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS May 21, 1965 FLOODS OVERRUN HOLLAND Reported by Correspondent Mitchell Joan Mitchell, foreign correspondent, reports that as soon as she set foot in Holland all the dikes broke and the country became flooded. They are investigating the causes of this phenomenon, and Miss Mitchell has been recalled, as it is believed that the future safety of Hol- land hangs in the balance. BIG THREE ASKS: WILL HERMIT MAKE ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE? The official spokesman for the Big Three announced today that the Conference has placed an appeal in Theater Arts to hermitess Esther Bufferd, requesting her not to forego her annual appearance in civilization. In past years she has abandoned her cave in Lonely Valley only at the spring equinox, leaving a trail of poetry and paintings behind her. The Conference feels that her cul- tural information will prove invaluable. Last March recluse Bufferd was quoted as saying, " Theater Arts is my only communication with the outside world. " FLASHES FROM ABROAD Reported by Correspondent Boynton Today, in Sing Lo, China, history was made as Miss Cynthia Smith, that patient lady from Wellesley, Mas- sachusetts, converted her 1500th Chinese woman. At the ceremony honoring Miss Smith was an Abbot class- mate of hers, Miss Holly Welles, another missionary, whose courageous work in bringing musical and the- atrical art to the Chinese has been hailed from all quarters. FLASH: Miss Elizabeth Dickerman, after digging for fifteen years in Crete, has unearthed the original snake goddess. Wise men from all centers of learning are rush- ing to see this famous wonder. LATEST NEWS FROM THE PEACE CONFERENCE Reported by Boynton President Paterson and Secretary of the Navy Two- mey admit that they are disturbed about the recent revolt staged in Guatemala. The instigator of this revolt is Ami Persson. Heated discussions are being held at the White House. Paterson is setting a new precedent by insisting that she will run for only one term. The soul retainer of Law and Order at the Conference are the hysterical remarks of Robbins the Cabinet jester. THE WORLD OF SPORTS A list of the United States Olympic teams for 1965 was released this morning. Women seem to be in the lead. Two well-known sports women, Mary Taylor and Sally Spear, took the honors in basketball. Barbara Ball is the trainer of these two girls. Both of them got their start at Abbot Academy. The track team is well taken care of, for it consists of Joan Holdsworth, who will be re- membered as the young lady who broke the records at the IT2A Meet. In a furiously played singles match, Andree Luce conquered a jinx and won the U. S. tennis nationals. Miss Luce played a fast, loose game, which might be called the most spectacular of her brilliant career. Yesterday afternoon at Falling Downs Helen Xorris won the annual steeplechase. The race was close, until Miss Xorris, abandoning her mount, cleared the last hedge to come in several hundred yards ahead of her closest competitor. Advertisements Have you lost your ring?
