SENIDR PRDM With Gretchen Jordan as our chairman the prom weekend was a great success. On board the S. S. Abbot Saturday night we danced to the music of Georges Trudeau. On land, at the Sea Inn, we were surprised by an array of sea horses, ancient maps, and brightly colored fish. We were pleasantly entertained by the Peadquacs and the Blue Octave. We hated to see that last car pull away from the campus Sunday afternoon. 39

INTERVALE The wind whipping fresh snow against us, the skimming of skis on a slope, a fast turn and that exulted feeling or a tumble— we were at Intervale. A fireside and the relaxing companionship of " Pooh " , burnt marshmallows and a feeling of con- tentment-Intervale— three days of fun and a united class.

LOG 1951-1955 In the year nineteen hundred and fifty-one, the S. S. Abbo t left port with 26 aboard for a cruise through the Abbot years. During the first leg of our journey we sailed through rough waters and calm seas, experiencing many memorable events. Of course at this time we lived on the lowest deck, in compartment Abbey, traveling steerage and getting all rhe bumps. In living quarters such as ours we often had difficulties— such as the morning we awoke to find a flood which was caused by leaking accomodations. On weekends we looked for- ward to visits from the crew of the S. S. An- dover. Although our time was limited, we managed to dance a few hornpipes around the deck. After three months ' shore leave, we returned to the S. S. Abbot with new crew members for another lap of our voyage. Some of us bunked in Abbey, the rest of us in Sherman and Homestead, on the tourist deck. Here we provided entertai nment for the whole ship by producing The Tempest. Later, during the cruise, the deck-hands of Homestead provided us with a change from the usual galley " vit- tles. " During the Spring of this year, the crew of Homestead started the epidemic of " sea- sickness " which spread from deck to deck. Recovering from the epidemic, we were able to hold several after-watch parties before end- ing this leg of our journey. Resuming our journey after another shore leave, our crew was increased by 17 new members on Second Compartment Draper. Our bumps from previous decks healed, we now sailed a smoother course. We celebrated at the bazaar this year the 125th Anniversary of the S. S. Abbot. Although it was held below deck, we came closer to our goal for the gym fund. With all good wishes for the departing mid- shipmen we bade them good-bye with our Commencement Play. To complete our crew, now quartered on First Deck, Compartment Draper, we added five midshipmen and sailed forth, gradually ap- proaching our last port. For the remembrance of all our wonderful years on board the S. S. Abbot, Miss Hearsey presented us with our rings. During Deck-Cleaning Week, while most of the swabbies were hard at work, we took a shore leave to Intervale. " Up to the snow slopes, The high and the low slopes, We hurried without delay. With help of instruction, We had no destruction, Though we fell most of the way! " Back on board ship, we held the S. S. Abbot Prom in March, with dates from surrounding ships. With permission for a shore leave we went to a near-by tavern, " The Sea Inn, " for refreshments. Enterta-nment was provided by the S. S. Exeter " Peadquacs " and the " Blue Octave. " During our last days on board ship, we docked at Ipswich for our last midshipmen pic- nic. The hot dogs and hamburgers from the galley were the best ever. We will never forget all our experiences on the S. S. Abbot, but the most memorable of all was graduation, June 6, 1955.— And now as we set out on the sea of lif°, we take w ; th us a rose and a diploma as symbols of our life aboard the S. S. Abbot. 40
