"l+alian Nigh+s" of which she had charge. She
lives in her own home, a new one, in New

fen-year old daughfer is her chief ioy. Music
she loves, especially 'lhe opera. Our dear Mrs.

She has fraveled widely, and she helps us

worked so hard wifh us. She says she enioys
being a guidance counselor. She 'lhinks fhal'
Seniors are easier fo handle fhan freshmen
because 'lhey have a sense of responsibilify
and of honor. However, she is fond of all
Evanderifes. She is herself a graduafe of Evan-
der as well as of Hunfer. She has always
