in The Blueprint T HAD been bright and sunny, that summer's day two years ago. I had arrived on the beach a little later than the rest of the crowd. Not that I really had any reason toi arrive late, but I always did. The crowd used to kid me about never being on time. Upon my arrival, I had been so busy straightening out my beach paraphernalia and answering remarks about being late that a few minutes had passed before I noticed a new addition to the crowd. Someone, I don't remember who, had. mumbled some sort of introduction, and so I learned that his name was Mike Grady. Mike wasn't the type of fellow who would make you think of Peter Lawford, but he didn't remind me of Frankenstein, either. He was just sort of average. After the iirst hasty introduction, we talked a lot. I dis- covered that he was four months older than I, the same year in high school, liked to dance and skate, was star halfback on his school football team fthis fact, he was reluctant to admitj, and that we thought the same way about lots of things. The after- noon was almost over before he got around to asking me for a date. By Catherine Moylan, '49 Our first date went off smoothly. It was one of the few times in my life that I was on time. After that Mike and I dated a lot and had lots of fun together. Soon, I became known as his girl. That summer went faster than any other I've ever known. During the winter, although Mike and I lived seventy miles apart, we saw each other about once a month. He took me to his Prom and I took him to mine. We didn't go "steady", because both of us felt we were much too young. Since we were seniors, with lots of extra activities, the winter didn't take too long in passing. So, as easily as counting one, two, three, another summer arrived. Mike and I arrived at the seashore with it. Things easily fell back into their old pattern. And thus, another summer sped past. Still there was no mention of the future because we felt too un? certain about our respective careers. Winter came upon us once more, and our distance of seventy miles in- creased to two hundred miles because Mike went away to college. Naturally we saw each other less and less. I became interested in someone else. I couldn't write the news to Mike. I

THE 1949 SILVER SANIJS thought it better to tell him when I saw him again. Two months ago when summer arrived, I had my chance. Once more I made my way to the shore. Mike, who had arrived a week ahead of me, met me at the station. While we were driving home, I tried to get up enough courage to tell him, but I just coulln't do it. When he asked me for a date that night I said yes, and when we reached home I told him. At first, he was very surprised, then he told me he was very glad for me. Then he said, "Carol, I've some news for you, but please don't tell anyone else. I want to keep it a secret for a while. I'm interested in someone else, too." So, the summer once more passed away. Mike and I remained very good friends. Perhaps that explains why we're traveling together on this train. But once this trip ends it will be a long time before we see each other again. Tomorrow I'm entering the Convent of the Holy Angels as a postulant, and Mike is starting his first year in the seminary. That someone else we're both 'interested in is God. The Luck 0f The Irish A-S' I WALKED down the street I wondered, "Is it worth it? Y es," I con- :luded, "it certainly is worth it, but I can't seem to make other people think so." As I turned these thoughts over in my mind, I was getting nearer and nearer to my destination. "Would this be like all the rest?" I asked myself. I supposed so. I was gradually becoming very disgusted with my own little campaign. I turned the corner. Only one more block to go! Could I take another disappointment? I must! Soon I was standing in front of my goal- Crane's Grocery Store. "I'll turn back now," I thought, but no-I must go through with it. Summoning all my courage, I entered the store. I closed the door with its tinkling bell behind me. There was no turning back now! "May I help you?" asked Mr. Crane from behind the counter. I was half tempted to pretend that I wanted to buy something but I couldn't. Swallowing the lump in my throat, I asked the oft repeated question. I couldn't even bear to look directly at Mr. Crane, for I knew only too 'well what the answer would be. I turned ot last-could I be dreaming? It wasn't possible but yet there it was. A smile was upon the kind, old gentleman's face. A ray of hope reached my sunken heart. At last my hopes were realised as Mr. Crane turned and said, "Sure, Dottie, I'll be a patron to your Senior Play." Dono'rHY McCoMBEs, '49 ' 68 O
