1.1111 1951-1955 ,,A In the year nineteen hundred and fifty-one, the S. S. Abbot left port with 26 aboard for a cruise through the Abbot years. During the first leg of our iourney we sailed through rough waters and calm seas, experiencing many memorable events. Of course at this time wel lived on the lowest deck, in compartment Abbey, traveling steerage and getting all the 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 entertainment 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 iourney. 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 -,,f'D 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. Entertainment 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 life, we take with us a rose and a diploma as symbols of our life aboard the S. S. Abbot. fff.-is-?Qw lf is -.-133
