ERE Egg was
QODE was Sitka
At some time
A js nearly all
of us have had the privilege -or misery- of iiim
learning some Latin, and sooner or later we i
have come to three nnmortal words, Hvenig vidig
viciu seems to be a masterpiece of concise
statement. Forelulius Caesar, it summed up a
military campaign, implying that the whole
incident was as easy as rolling off a log,
HI came, I sawg I conquered!
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all'
dispose of our difficulties, our obstacles, so ,
easily? These girls who are about to be gradua-
ted would like a touch of such apparent genius,
Younger girls might perhaps appreciate some in
solving a matl problem or in getting those
French idioms. Others of us might use some "
when confronted with family problems, choices
in business, and any number of things, It
sounds so modern, too, rather like our push-
button may of life: UI cameg I sawg I pushed
a button, and presto! - victorgq
Rut I think that Caesar didn't know what he
was Sayingg that is, he didn't realize that
behind this expression of ease and militglwf' 9
prowess' he intended to show off, lay the nucleu
of a wh le way of life, and that way not one
that might be supposed fron a mere casual U
observation of the words.
in our school dai
I suppose it is rather natural for every-
one to want to conquer something - somethings
like those obstacles and problems I mentioned a
second ago. Unfortunately there,isLjust9no' '
Shortpgnappy way to evaporate allfthese. Ep one

,e ought many bitter ways. But in the Oth
two clauses,before he could say,HI conquegggu,
there is some guidance in steps preparatory
to becoming a conqueror. '
First of all, no victony goes to him who sits
down to wait for it. No student learns a lesson
by just resting'in class waiting for intellec-
tual dawn. HI cameu should be taken literally.
Mahomet went to the mountain, thereby proving
himself a wise man. To go out.to meet problems
is the beginning of solution.qTo comenmeans
reallyuto bring oneselfvto. In meeting any
problem that arises one must bring oneself
right up feee to face with it, sometimes
physically, always mentally, and often in both
ways. In this action one must give of oneself,
being willing and courageous enough to seek out
and confront the problem with all the awareness
and alertness of which one is capable. If you
must tackle a math problem, you must let your
..emind.come to the task. If, ou wish o
b sf ht 111311521 A
friend, you must ring yourself t e warm 4 of
your whole personality, to that person. He '
who sits in his corner waiting for friendship
often finds it a dark corner indeed. He must r
bring himself out into the light of friendly ' f
relations. We speak of meeting'the other fehlowf
half-way. Even this half-way mark is reached pf
only if one has initiative enough to come to itl
The first step alone is net quite enough to gi
satisfy'the requirements for victory. One more f
is Vitalsn I sawn- Seeing may be just what i
appens When Your eyes focus on an object
int seeing has another connotation in our, y
anguagez that of understandinv. The student l
who sits before her math book needs clear 5
comprehension of wh t
. f t - ' 5
what Skill In 8 ac ors are involved,
S She V111 need to use before she gets
an answer. This person who brought himgg?f to
meet his friend may find that unless he tries
to understand the friend,the relationshi 'L
cannot be all that he would desire. Kike the
student he ' 'ii
, needs to get to know the personf
ality, the feelings, the tastes of the'other
person,and just what knowledge of human nature
what sympathies, he himself will need to becom
a true friend. Vision, in its more abstracti
sense, is a possession to be highly prized if
it is the vision of keen insight, sympathy,
social concern, and understanding. Anyone who
can sincerely say,HI undersaandn is well on the
way to victory'because he has given of all
'Une human qualities within himself, and so is
Well on the way to victoryx
HI came, I sawg I conqueredn. The last
step is the goal, but attainable only by '
taking the first two speps. And the last may
be really not a step, for it seems that 'i'e '
bringing oneself sincerely and wholly to the
problem, gaining true understanding are really
the major part of.conquering, But again, this
whole sentence of Caesar's points to another'
lesson. Behind it lay struggle, expenditure of
energifsg of lives even. Yet the victory cry
of the conqueror is six simple words. I find'
that those people who achieve worthwhile things
who are able to conduct successful lives, are,
those who are modest about mentioning it, -

BETTY LOU DREXLER
N THE completion of our Hrst voyage, we End ourselves outward
bound once more, as we did twelve years ago. When we Hrst
came aboard Abington Friends, we did not know what lay ahead
of us. Most of the time we have had easy sailing, but now and then
there were storms. Before us lie the uncharted waters of the future,
and we find ourselves ready to set sail on our longest voyage. We do
not know what is in store for us, but we can't help realizing how valuable
the experiences here at Abington Friends will be when we are confronted
with the storms that are bound to arise. We decided that because our
school life has borne similarities to the voyage of a ship, we would use a
nautical idea as a theme for the 1951 GUTWARD BOUND. So welcome
HROUGHOUT our school life, the people who have had the deepest
influence on us have been you, our parents. It is now that we Wish
to thank you for all the things that you have done for us. For sendf
ing us to Abington Friends in the first place is something for which we
shall always be grateful. It has been here that we have found the friendf
ships and education that have been so important to us. We thank you
again for understanding usg and for being so wise, even though at times
we must have been very trying. We thank you for listening to our probf
lems, and for usually solving them. It is because of your love, patience,
and immeasurable faith in us that we proudly dedicate to you the 1951
OUTWARD BOUND. We only hope that we will be able to live up to the
standards that you have set for us, and that we shall be everything that
you hope us to be.
MARY HELEN BICKLEY s
Here in school, perhaps the biggest help We have had with our class
problems, as well as our individual ones, has come from Miss Bickley. The
friendly interest which she has shown in each of us, and her ready asf
sistance with all of our undertakings have been invaluable. Irreplaceable
also is her Warm sense of humor which has so often added a light touch
when things went wrong. We are deeply grateful to Miss Bickley for all
these things, but perhaps most of all, We Wish to acknowledge her Wise
guidance and true friendship which has guided us through our last year
at Abington Friends School.

"The two noblest things, which are sweetness and light."
If you want a job done well, just get Evie, for she
is by far the most conscientious member of the class.
Her continual good will and the cheerfulness with
which she tackles any joh, no matter how tough, is
amazing. As class treasurer and secretary of the A. A.,
Evie has shown her ability as an executive. Sports are
also an important part of her life, for when she's not
playing tennis or hockey at A. F. S., she is down at
Shibe Park watching the A's. Evie is a charter member
of the crazy remark department, and many of her un'
expected comments have lightened up a dull class.
As a matter of fact Cif it weren't for her spellingj,
we could say that Evie is tops in everything!

"Not by years but by disposition is wisdom acquired."
All of us realize today how lucky we were when
Margie entered our class. She had new and refreshing
ideas, a sincere attitude, and practical common sense.
In the years that she has been with us, she has im'
pressed us with these qualities along with her un'
paralleled enthusiasm. Margie adds zest to any
activity in which she participates. The Glee Club,
with her as president, has greatly improvedg Acorns

she captained was a successg and this yearbook
benefited because of her business abilities. Margie's

"lf must be done like lightning."
If you want to start the day on the right foot, just
look for Nancy. Her neverfending vitality, particf
ularly so early in the morning, is amazing, for what
would the locker room be like without her cheerful
"Hi" on those dreary Mondays? As a matter of fact,
Nancy has never failed to amaze us, for how she
manages that long trip to school every day, We don't
know. CMaybe it accounts for her having worn two
diiferent kinds of loafers one daylj In school Nancy
has been interested in the Glee Club and Acoms,
while out of school her main attractions seem to be
convertibles and the shore, where she spends her
summers. In whatever she does, however, Nancy's
completely unaffected personality is obvious to all.

"A little nonsense now and then."
Who will ever forget the class house parties at
Betty Lou's? Even if the sunburn was painful, Betty's
constant good humor and hospitality made the week'
ends at Island Heights unforgettable. Betty's crazy
antics have also kept the class laughing. One can
never tell what practical joke she is going to play
next. She can be very serious at times, though. Be'
cause she is willing to accept responsibility and is able
to organize, she was elected to act as hockey and
basketball managers, photography club president, and
photography cofeditor of the yearbook. Everyone has
confidence that any job placed before her will be
completed Well. Betty Lou has the ability of being
able to stay out of all arguments and for this reason
is a friend to all.

"She never found fault with you, never implied your wrong by her right."
For twelve years, Billie has been lending a helpful
hand to the class. We love her for her sincerity, her
tact, and her ability to get along with everyone.
Billie's talent for clever writing has been a great help
to Acorns, but for the best proof of it just look through
this yearbook. Because of her independence of thought
and her ability to present her ideas, Billie was chosen
to speak in a Junior Town Meeting debate. We are
proud of the job she did over the air, and we are proud
also of the job she has done on the basketball team.
Billie does indeed deserve a vote of thanks from all of
us, for she has been invaluable as a friend and helper.

Noisy? just listen. Hear that big racket up in the
Senior Room? That's Susie-as always, acting the
halffwit of the class. Because of her ready wit, many
a tense moment has passed off into laughter. Susie is
also known for her unique "sayings," and we don't
think that she is even sure what she'll come out with
next! Despite her love of fun, Susie is a hard worker,
and is found in many activities around school. Her
work as Art Editor of Acoms is proof of her artistic
talent, and her clever ideas for decorations have
helped make our dances successful. We will remember
Susie for her friendly ways and her love of life, for
where there's Susie, there's bound to be fun!

Galloping up the hockey field, dribbling down the
floor, or executing a beautiful backhand are all in a
day's work for Jane, our three varsity star. Ever since
she came to A. F. S., she has been leading the various
teams to victory. Jane has also been the able treasurer
of the school bank, and has shown her capability by
helping to balance the books each Friday afternoon.
She has again demonstrated her skill in handling money
by acting as treasurer of the A. A. jane's willingness
to do any job set before her is amazing. Whenever
work arises, she is the first to offer her services. Jane
is an outstanding member of our class because of this
willingness, her ready sense of humor, and her prac-
tical outlook on life.

jean is, without a doubt, the most frank and indef
pendent member of our class. Ever since she joined
us in sixth grade, we have received straight forward
answers and down to earth reasoning from her. Jean
is a hard worker, as can be seen not only by her success
as a student, but also in the Way she has tackled the
responsibilities of being class president. She has
added a great deal to the play production group too,
by proving herself invaluable both back stage and per-
forming. Unlike most of us, Jean knows what she
wants from life and how she is going to get it. Although
many of the standards that she has set for herself
are high, we are sure that she will find success.

"She is fhe dreamer of dreams."
Audrey is one of the oldest members of the class of
1951. She entered A. F. S, at the ripe old age of five
and throughout the years has helped to execute many
of our mischievous pranks. Even as a senior, she is
still as devilish as she Was in lower school. As presie
dent of the A. A. and vicefpresident of the class, she
has discovered how to combine good times and hard
work. Audrey's originality has culminated in various
parties and open houses that have been full of fun and
surprises. One thing that is unique with Audrey is
her carefree attitude. It seems that nothing can cause
her to worry. For this reason, she is one of the best
natured members of our class.

"Order is a lovely thing."
Iona has the outstanding ability of staying out of
arguments, and she has been doing so for thirteen
years here at A. F. S. She may seem quiet, but when
you get to know her, you soon discover that she can
be a lot of fun. Through the years Iona has been a
loyal member of the Play Production group, and her
active participation has eamed her the position of
vicefpresident. Iona always seems to be busy at
something, whether it's working on a play, taking
minutes as class secretary, baby sitting Cat which we
understand she's an expertj, or merely chatting with
friends in Jenkintown. No matter what is set before
her, Iona responds with promptness and a ready smile.
"Blushing is ihe
Joan's wholesomeness, her ready blush, and her firm
ideas reflect the country life that is so much a part of
her. Speaking of the country, who will ever forget
those crazy parties at Schroeders' where we played
baseball in the graveyard? Joan can be serious though,
and has proven so by her work on Acorns and by the
faithfulness with which she has gone out for the
various teams. She has also been an active member of
the Glee Club, for music is her major interest and, we
might add, her future career. ,loans musical talent is
the envy of us all, and we are still wondering how she
ever finds the time to give piano lessons! Maybe
some day she'll be a second Rubinstein. W'ho knows?

"Thoughts are mighfier than .rtrengfh of hand."
Whether in school or out, Jo is always there to lend
a helping hand. Her genuine interest in others'
problems has helped solve many a classroom discus'
sion. Versatility also marks Jo, for she has been active
in Acorns and Glee Club, as well as on the hockey
and tennis teams. As vicefpresident of the Student
Council and president of the Dramatic Club, she has
also shown her interest in school affairs, and par'
ticularly her ability as a leader. We'll never forget
Jo's Current Events speeches, for Cthough rather
lengthy at timesD they are proof of her depth of
thought. We know that whatever she does in the
years to come, Jo will make a place for herself as she
has done in our hearts.

"God bless the man who first invented sleep."
When Paddy arrived in ninth grade, we thought,
"What a shy, innocent little girl." But after a few
class parties, we soon learned, for her crazy remarks
and wonderful sense of humor have helped to make
any class gathering a success. All of us appreciate
Paddy's genuine wit and ready retorts, which are
apt to pop up at even the most serious moment: at
a play production meeting, in basketball practice, or
even in class. One of Paddy's most admirable traits
is one that very few of us have: her ability to accept
her faults and laugh at her own mistakes. But perhaps
the most outstanding feature, and the thing that we
will remember the longest is her ha ppyfgoflucky nature.

"Hers is a service of people rather than of things."
Versatile is a synonym for Joan. She may be little
when it comes to size, but her many abilities certainly
make up for her lack of stature. Joan has a wonderful
sense of responsibility and an enthusiastic interest in
everything she does. Besides being an A student, a
hard worker on Acoms staff, a strong alto in the Glee
Club, and a participant in almost every other activity
in the school, she has done an exceptional job as presif
dent of the Student Council. In many ways Joan has

Hereunto we set our hand and seal this fifteenth day of June, 1951.
THE SENIOR CLASS
S li li Zkrli lk Zi li ZR Zi Zi yi 2
The class of 1951 was initiated into school life back in 1938, whereupon we took Miss Ingram through
her paces. Falling blocks, scattered chairs, and paintfsmeared faces were not extraordinary scenes. Even
then we were members of what we thought was a super May Day. But that year, we must admit, the May
Day flowers were quite heavy, for they consisted of Aud, Evie, and Iona.
First grade was one adventure after another. Miss Jones had quite a time keeping peace in the class,
which also had young gentlemen as members. Ask Billie, for we believe one of these young men was the
cause of her loose front tooth. joan Williams, along with Billie, entered our class this year, but the harmony
between them was noticeable by its absence. It seemed that Joan often had the urge to pull Bil1ie's long curls,
bringing about nothing but loud bellows and tears.
Paste-that strikes a familiar note. Why, yes, second grade was the year Evie was to get her fill of
eating paste. Perhaps she thought it contained some vitamins. That year the room was heavily guarded by
Joan, who spent most of her time on the bench outside the door. Could it be that she had been misbehaving?
Across the hall we moved with leaps and bounds, for at last we were in third grade. One problem
that year was to learn to write long hand, so with pencils clutched tightly, tongues out, and Miss Etris to
guide us, we began our task. We made great progress, but since then it has been hinted that along the way
we must have lost our acquired ability. Eh, Audrey?
When we reached fourth grade, we decided that we had great dramatic talent. We set out to try our
luck behind the footlights by producing Hansel and Gretel, a puppet show. We made several blunders, but
our appreciative audience, consisting mostly of mothers, still applauded'
We felt quite stylish as we entered lifth grade, for we were now grown up enough to wear sweaters
and skirts. We once more tried our hand at acting by giving our version of Little Woinen. The play was
saved by Sue Janney, who ad libbed while Iona dashed upstairs to get the letter from "Father."
During our la st year in the Lower School, we had our first money ma king project when we published
Little Atoms. We also acquired two new members: Jean, who amazed us by being so outspoken, and Jane,
who immediately demonstrated her unusual athletic abilities. When at last we reached the end of sixth
grade, we had happy expectations for our next six years in Upper School.
Our first memories of seventh grade were the experiences at hockey camp. Most of us attended with
the hope of making first team Cnone of us didl. Susie entered the class with a bang that year. Her blonde
hair brought her many admirers at those G. A. dances. As most seventh grades, we were very confused in
passing from class to class. Carrying so many books was certainly tiring, and we finished seventh grade
feeling very old and very weary. '
Eighth grade found us in the study hall. There was never a dull moment in class meetings. Susie was
lined ive cents each meeting for talking out of turn. In the middle of the year, Nancy joined our class. We
were all amazed at the distance she traveled each day. The big problem that year was to wear or not to wear
lipstick. We said we should, but the faculty didn't agreeg consequently, we spent part of each day in the
locker room, removing the war paint. Mr. Scull spent a great deal of his time telling us that we were young
ladies, not hoodlums. We proved him wrong, though, when we played followfthefleader in the store rooms.
When we at last reached high school, we had three additions to the class: Paddy, with her long blonde
gyg zgyg yy Jx fx yy yy Jx JX ,X I
braids around her head, joannie Schroeder, who liked to ride on busesg and Betty Lou, who was double
jointed. From the very first day of school we began to work on Freshman Day. It seemed when the day
rolled around we were permitted only two requests, however. It has been hinted that this was because we
were unladylike to Mr. Smith, but we still claim we were only having fun.
With Jo and Margie, who joined us in tenth grade, our class was complete. From the very first, we
were fascinated by Barrel's ability to talk in current events, and Margie was quite an asset to our class for
whenever medical advice was needed, our Margie knew all the answers.
As Sophomores, our studies kept us busy. We discovered that Chaucer had written "Whanne that
April with his shoures sotef' Diane took it harder than most of us because one day we heard a thud on the
floor where she was out cold. The task of getting back to work after Christmas vacation was eased by var'
ious things. Remember the window cleaner in Religious Ed. class? With spring just around the corner, we
often found our minds wandering from work. We all tried faithfully to get sun tan on the tennis courts.
Almost before we knew it, we acquired the tan for should we say burn?j at Susie's as We celebrated the end
of the term.
As juniors we had the thrill of receiving our class rings at the unforgettable Ring Dinner. Our class
decided to go into the business of selling stockings as a means of fattening the treasury. We succeeded in
doing that, but why must nylons run so? Plans for the Junior Prom got under way. By January we had
decided on green and white balloons for our theme, but somehow by June we found ourselves in the cooking
room surrounded by hundreds of sea gulls. The Dramatic Club play and dance was our pride and joy. By
giving speeches and working hard, we made a success of the dance and proved that we could really work
together. The Biology class will never forget their visit to New York's Museum of National History with
Miss Tees. Neither will the poor fellow they called George.
June came quickly, and it seemed a thousand and one things still had to be done. Luckily Betty Lou had
the class down to Island Heights where we could recuperate from the Commencement mosquito bites and
where no daisies were visible.
When we returned to A. F. S. last fall, it hardly seemed possible that we were actually Seniors. Miss
Bickley tried to impress the fact upon us, but for most of us it was hard to realize. The school was having its
face lifted and continued to do so throughout the year. Everyday we would look to see how the gym was prof
gressing. At the beginning of the year we were also confronted with the problem of no class secretary
because of Sue Lapp's absence. After Diane received the job and then left us too, We began to think the
position was a jinx. Time was never so scarce as in the senior year. The Ring Dinner showed us immedf
iately how necessary it would be to work quickly and get things done. There was also the Senior Prom to
work on. For weeks we planned on a merryfgo'round of candy canes, but by the evening of the prom our
contraption was unanimously christened "The Thing." Ads and writing of this yearbook kept us busy from
midfterms on, along with Arbor Day and Commencement plans. '
We will always remember our Senior year as being one full of hard work, but one of innumerable good
times. Now as we are outward bound, we will often look back and remember the happiness that our days
at A. F. S. have given us.

BEATRICE TRAUTVETTER GRACE MARY TEES JEANNETTE NELSON HENDRICKS
I was peacefully sleeping when a large ripple
of water lifted my left eye lid. I blinked twice
and then rose and grabbed my trident. Since
this was the time of day for the ocean to be calm
so I could take my nap, I was furious at the dis'
turbance and started out immediately to stop the
tumult. You see, I'm Neptune, god of the sea, and
when things don't go as I plan, I take my trident
in hand and alter the situation. When I reached
the core of the perturbation, I wasn't surprised to
see a boat, because they're the worst and most
frequent violators of my laws. I swam to the surface
and almost died, because there rocking tempesf
tuously in the water was the Betty Lou V. This
wasn't the first time I'd had trouble with that
boat, no sir, every year that Neptunefraising class
of 1951 comes out here and has a wonderful time
reminiscing and making plans. After Hftyfnine
years, I've grown fond of these ladies and look for'
ward to their coming. Without further delay, I
wrapped myself in a wave and washed myself
When I lifted my head, I found myself at the feet
of Iona Sanders and Jean Nicholas who were
talking about some department store to be built in
Jenkintown. I had been hearing a great deal about
Nicholas's new stores. This would make her tenth.
Gosh, I'1l never forget when she made all those
trips to Europe while her London store was being
built, everyone thought she was getting a divorce
from John-Hal I noticed a badge on Iona's coat
that said: Mayor of Jenkintown. Then I remem'
bered that about three months ago I heard the
fish remarking that if you know the right people
you can go places. It seems with Iona that first
it was the police chief, then the fire chief and on up
until she was elected. I suppose I should have conf
grarulated her, but I was still sort of mad at the
whole bunch for disturbing my nap.
I started to lie back so that I could sleep awhile,
but my head hit something hard. It turned out to
be one of Margie Craigls oxfords which she had
kicked off so as to talk more easily. Brother, was
she talking with all her might! She was giving the
gory details of a brain operation she had performed
on Monday, to Nancy, Evelyn and Audrey. Before
Margie finished, Nancy asked her just what she
had been doing the last few years. An immediate
reply came from Audrey, "You sure have been lost,
Dopeyg didn't you hear about Marg's appointment
as head 'of jefferson Medical College?" This
conversation seemed to quiet down, and I had just
closed my eyes when Paddy came strolling up and
slapped Evelyn on the back. She asked Evie how
the team was making out. I had to listen to this
because, you see, I just love water polo and was
hoping that Evelyn's team was a water polo team.
But no, they were only talking baseballg how dull.
It seems Evelyn's nine sons have become very
famous as the junior A's. After listening for a few
sentences, Nancy, surprised to hear that Evelyn
had married Connie Mack's grandson and had nine
sons, remarked, "Nothing has happened to me
since I left A. F. S. All I did was marry the boss
and settle down to spending my Hvefthousandf
dollarfafweek allowance. Life is so boring for me."
"If you want something dull," Audrey bellowed,
"just try owning twelve ranches and about five
hundred cowboys. All I do is sit all day on the
porch and wait for the sun to set. But I don't
really think I'd change places with anyone on the
boat if I had the opportunity."
The noise got too much for me, so I went to a
dark corner of the boat and once more tried to shut
my eyes for a few seconds. Everything was going
nicely until I heard a mumbling over in the corner
next to me. I opened my eyes upon two rather
familiar faces, but I couldn't quite place them. Then
I remembered those two fools who sat out on the
deck the iirst time they all came to Island Heights.
Boy, had I had fun drenching them that day! As
I walked over, I heard Io telling Billie about her
latest book, Your Neighbor the Negro. It seemed
Johanne had made some sort of resolution that once
a year she would publish a book that would better
world relations. I don't see where she finds the
time between the hospital and the insane asylum.
Billie said this was the first time she had been
half warm in fourteen years. You see, Billie had
been in Alaska and hadn't been able to make these
trips to Island Heights, the lucky girl! Ever since
Billie had taken that newspaper job in Alaska I
think she regretted it. Now they were talking about
what was to go into the next editorial. Those two
never could stay on one subject.
Suddenly thirsty, I started below for a drink of
water. I almost fell over .Ioan Williams perched on
the steps surrounded by food. I jumped over her,
landing on a bunk next to Paddy Stull who was
smoking a sixteenfinch cigarette, her latest inf
vention. I inquired after Joan's diet, but all I got
for an answer was a few munching sounds. I then
asked her how Hollywood was. She gave me an
icy stare and with the oddest accent replied, "I
have come east to rest." Not quite understanding,
because that didn't seem to answer my question, I
just looked at her questioningly. "I needed a rest
after my fifth divorce," she continued. "You know,
Neptune, some things done to excess can be very
tiring." just as I was taking in and digesting fIoan's
last statement, a cloud of smoke came soaring in my
direction, practically smothering me. I climbed
my way out of the stuff and went over to where
Paddy was still pufling away. Before I could say
boo, she asked me if I drank. "Sure," I replied,
"water every three minutes." "No, no," she
screamed. "I mean that hard stuff." Then she
continued frantically to tell me how wonderful
it was to be a prohibitionist. I stepped back slowly,
In my rush, I tripped over something and fell
flat on my face. I picked up the odd object and
discovered it was a green rubber tulip with a worm
in it. I knew right away to whom it belonged bee
cause about five years before, I had met a swimmer
who shook my hand with a handfshake buzzer.
Sure enough, there was Betty Lou sitting at the
steering wheel, looking every bit the part of Queen
I continued up to the deck and sat down to rest
in the sun while jane came galloping up with joan
Schroeder trailing behind. I yelled for them to rest
awhile, and the two plopped down beside me.
jane immediately took out a wad of thousand dollar
bills and began counting. I looked wide eyed for a
minute then asked just where she got all the money.
She smiled then went into great detail to tell me
all about her bank chain. While I talked with
Jane, joan was in some sort of daze, humming a
queer tune. I always knew Joan liked music but
not that slow and morbid stuff. "Hey, joan," I
called, "what is that you're humming?"
"VVhy that's the first movement of Beethoven's
Sixth Symphony. Do you like it?"
"Oh, oh yes," I replied. Jane then informed me
that Joan had just been appointed director of the
Philadelphia Orchestra. I jumped up and shook
Joan's hand while she blushed her usual coral pink.
While I was listening to the end of B's Sixth, I
heard a loud banging below me, a steady pounding
which was enough to drive a body out of his mind,
or should I say a mind out of its body. Well any'
way, I most willingly excused myself and went
exploring below. I suddenly bumped into Susie
who was hammering two boards together. I
asked her what she was doing. Then she told me
that after she had her thirteenth little boy she
quit teaching first grade and started working for
her father building Better Built Bulkfheads. It was
then that Betty Lou turned the boat around and
headed back toward shore. The entire group began
to sing as Susie strummed on her uke, so I decided
it was time for me to go. I rolled into the ocean
and went back to bed to finish my wellfearned nap.
