. ' September of '49 meant to most of us the beginning of another year
Va classes, homework, and those dreaded exams. However, as a supple-
Ulik' ment to this none too cheerful outlook, September also brought the
l,2,Qlvleerful class of '53 to Madeira. The girls of this class spent the first
A art of the year getting acquainted with the school and with each other.
oon they were as much a part of Madeira as the older girls. Several
VYXE-fo' of them even began to make names for themselves. Ann Spicer and
innie Adams became the Misses "Comic Books in Study Hall" and
allie C'Texas"J Dewar made sure everyone knew where she came from.
p-U,-was wie house girls as well as the day girls got to know Ceci Dixon, since
' s e lived in the iniirmary part of winter term. Jenny Lee's dramatic
ability was recognized in her amazing portrayal of the small boy in
"Happy Journey". Maria Grasselli was acknowleged as one of the seven
wonders of Madeira because of her fluency in every language from
German to Pig Latin, and the whole school was overwhelmed by tales
of Nancy Ball's and Anne Howe's fabulous grades. The athletic prowess
of Carol Funkhouser and Poppy Hamlin began to come to light, as did
the beauty of Ceres, Sukie a11d Joan Harjes.
Then came the acid test of all freshmen, the Christmas play, which
the class of '53 performed admirably. Priscilla Woods made a very
convincing Zachary, and it would be hard to forget Hilles and Gay as the
two little children. So good were those two, in fact, that everyone was
glad to find them together again as "Frankie and Johnny" in the Fresh-
man skit. More talent was displayed in the skit through "Dangerous
Dan Magrew" sung by Susan Alexander, Betty Heap, Priscilla Woods and
Deette Pierson. Jenny Molloy showed us some mighty tricky Hungarian
dancing, and her roommate Wickie proved that there's more than one
talented Cheatham. Speaking of talent, it's been rumored that Jane
Humphreys is also quite the dancer.
And so in view of past performances, we are sure these Freshmen
are headed for a great future. They certainly have the brains, brawn,
beauty and talent to be a really great class!
