WE!-ITHEH FUHEIIIIST After picking up my reservations for my approaching trip from Marcia Cooper, I hur- ried to the Ritz Carlton Hotel where I was greeted by Mary Minard, a prominent New York socialite, who was giving a Bon Voyage Party in my honor. I noticed Kathy Stirling pre- paring to take a picture and realized why, when with a bang Diane Sorota iumped from a huge cake in the middle of the room. She intro- duced the "Harmonious Hoosier Hicks," Marty Clark and Karen Olson, who sang their own rendition of "CasuaIities." Amidst resounding applause I felt I should leave in order to make the early boat the following morning. I was awakened by Nancy Johnson, who presented me with a cold ice pack and in- formed me that the boat was leaving in half an hour. Surprisingly enough, I made the boat, and the voyage was very calm except for a, near collision with Betsy Beal and Sue McGuire who were sailing in the Newport to Bermuda Race-and numerous interruptions by Jean Donovan s twelve children. ' The last night on shipboard we were enter- tained royally by the Drapr r Dreams Gall Baldwin Jeanne Skillin Carroll Smith and Dee Fleming accompanied by Eleanor Easton on the keys I was proud of these five Abbot girls who had lust hit the million mark with their newest record Arriving in London the following day I hopp- ed a bus with Betsy Elliot as its guide While in one of the poorer sections whom should I see but Pam Carpenter conducting a sidewalk class in Spanish for the Cockneys Heading in the other direction I found Dee Duryee prac- ticing the organ in Westminster Abbey The next stop was Scotland Yard which I learned had Kathy Lloyd as its head Being a great sports enthusiast I traveled to Wimbledon to Gibbs was the timekeeper Since Scotland was so near I put aside a day for a visit There I was flabbergasted to see Libby Baldwin at 250 pounds the chief bouncer of Beth Chandlers School of Atlanta Bop for all Highland Flingers Marlena Comas was keeping the customers happy with Bacardi um After this exciting day in Scotland I took a clipper to Switzerland making a fast stop in Sweden to hear Anne English sing She is said to have taken Jenny Lunds place in unter national fame and I can well believe it Reaching Switzerland I immediately went to the Alps where I was greeted by Nancy East ham of the Swiss Ski Patrol and was later instructed by Mary Earhart and Mary Ann Yudlcky in their famous ski school With no broken bones I arrived in Rome lust in time to see Lyn Gardner in the opening of The Barber of Seville I met Debbie Green during the intermission and found that she was redoing the Sistine Chapel. We were suddenly interrupted by Juli Morellip who was selling her scrumptious Submarine Sandwiches. The next day I decided to check up on the Kremlin and its new faction, Clarkism, insti- gated by Ann Clark. I also found that Cookie Holden was taking inventory on the newly- introduced social activities. Tiring of the cold climate, I went to India where I met Carol Straton, who told me that she was Gretchen Jordan's secretary, Getchen being Nehru's famed psychoanalyst. I also ran into Judy Carpenter, who was engaged in charming snakes with her magic trumpet. After a quick trip to Slam, where I saw Sheryl Wormley, the renowned Siamese dan- cer, and Louise Stephenson training cats, I flew to Africa where I bumped into Ann Klttredge working on an important excavation She and Joan Lamprey who was the entomol- ogist in the group took me to the place where Jane Kent was teaching the natives to figure skate From there I took the next boat to Spain and hurried to the bullfights Liz Oppmann was the star toreador and between the fights I enloyed the entertainment of Mariby Burrowes and Heidi Angevine on guitars On the way to Holland I picked up a paper and read of a teachers convention where two of the main speakers were Sally Watrous teacher of agriculture in the Belgian Congo and Chris Maynard professor of mathematics at Heidelberg In Holland Sue Davis who was the chief operator of a windmill told me of Lee Smissaerts latest book on the psychology be hind the raising of tulips Needing a little relaxation I lourneyed down to the Riviera and stayed at a hotel into Nicky Knox in the lobby who told me that she was now Aly Khans stable boy I then went to Sue Appleton s School of Charleston I was driven to Paris by Alice Lawrence who was entered in the Monte Carlo to Paris sports car race I was greeted there by Starr Best the Ambassador to France Seeing the sights of Paris I arrived at Montmartre where I bumped into Louise Bell selling his paintings Also there was Ann Cleveland with her French Poodles with whom she was touring the con tlnent Back at my hotel I ran into Pegguns Holbrook with another exotic hairdo she had lust come from the establishment of Tucky Munroe the famous couffeuse She told me of Sally Graf s plans for an Abbot reunion of the Class of T955 to be held on its 25th anmver sary in the Sahara Desert On that note I left to prepare to meet all my old acquaintances once again X31 gg gf Q.. .
