And as weglance back down the hillside Far down to the depths of the vale, We notice a throng of successors Who follow our well-blazed trail, When yet the ascent was before us Life appeared narrow and small, For what we could see from the lowlands Was little or nothing at all. But now it seems to be calling- Life in its wondrous ,arrayg Now we're prepared to attain it On this transitional day. And with us we find a great meeting Of friends from all over the land, Who are bidding farewell to their classmates With a last, sincere grasp of the hand. Our journey together is ended, For the trails that we choose to pursue Will scatter us over the country And maybe across the sea, too. THE MERCURY 5 Once more we are all here assembled As the class of the year '34, And the memory of this our commencement Will live in our hearts evermore. MIRIAM Wise Class Poet SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Friends and members of the class of 1934, we are entering another harbor in our journey of life. Time is fleeting. It is probable that to most of us the day we entered first grade is fresh in our memories. The tide of time carried us swiftly through those eight years which followed and brought us safely into the port of the eighth grade graduation, from which we launched forth, four years ago, on the trip through high school. It would be impossible to touch upon the joys and sorrows of each one personally, but let us review some of the outstanding events of those four years. On September 9, 1930, we set sail. For the first few weeks we were tossed and jostled about. Then some kindly senior came to our rescue and suggested that we elect officers to man our ship. We considered carefully and chose the following, who steered us safely through the first year: Richard Raymond .......... President llluriel Palmer ........ Vice-President Madelyn Collins . . . ..... Secretary Robert Trombley .......... Treasurer Although we were only freshmen the upper classmen had to admit we had talent in our class, for when the Cast was announced for the Girls' Glee Club play, "College Days" the following were chosen from our class- Mabel Start, Rachel Cole, and Leila Ginett. Again in May of the same year, Robert Trom- bley, Winston Bevins, and Jack VVhite took part in "Hearts and Blossoms" given by the Boys' Glee Club. When the sophomores tendered our class a reception in February, it was the first one to be held in the new gymnasium. Something about the word receptions seems to abash the freshmen, and they never attend them well. Such was the case with us. Following this reception the days passed swiftly along with the usual ups and downs. We Houndered through two sets of examina- tions and with sighs of relief were content to spend our summer in as carefree a manner as possible. We lifted the anchor again in the fall of 1931 with the following staff to conduct our ship: - ' Robert Trombley . . . ..... President Mabel Start ...... . . . Muriel Palmer . . . . . . . . Vice-President Secretary Alan Sweeny ............. Treasurer We were sophomores, but we did try very hard to remember to speak to the freshmen and encourage them, for but one short year ago we had been in their places and knew what it meant to have someone take a little interest. During this year the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs decided to combine in presenting an operetta, and a very successful one was pro- duced in "Pickles". Those from our class taking leading parts were Robert Trombley and James Cioffi. Many others sang in the chorus. It was now our duty to give the freshmen a reception, and after some effort we staged a very colorful one in our school gymnasium. As sophomores we were just getting accus- tomed to the order of social affairs and school events. In our junior year we became more accustomed to attending to these duties. We 6 THE MERCURY carried on our activities under the following ofilicers: Alan Sweeny . . . ...... President Rachel Cole ...... .... V ice-President Miriam Wise ...., ...... S ecretary Adrien Trembley ......... Treasurer This year We had our first right to mem- bership on the "Mercury,' staff. The "Mer- cury" had been started in our freshmen year, and we had developed a great interest in its welfare. The following were named on the staff and they carried out their duties in a creditable manner: llflargaret Corliss ........ News Editor Alan Sweeny ........ Athletics Editor Miriam Wise ....... Exchange Editor Mabel Start . Ass't. Circulation Manager Richard Raymond Ass't. Advertising Manager VVe were "out of pocket", so to speak, when we began considering the Junior-Senior Ball. Cooperation on the part of the members of the class in the paying of dues and frequent food and rummage sales made it possible to raise the money necessary to give the seniors a brilliant farewell. On the Monday night following the prom eight juniors took part in the annual Junior Prize Speaking contest. There was some talk as to the advisability of having this because of the expense of a coach, but it was finally decided to charge a small fee at the door, which overcame this difficulty. lldiss Eleanor Royce kindly consented to coach us. First prize was won by Muriel Palmer, second by Rachel Cole and third by Edith Pattee. I think that most of us felt, at Commence- ment time last June, a sort of pride that we should be the graduates next year, however, we were, deep down in our hearts, glad that we had one more year to spend in B. F. A. and did not realize how swiftly that year would pass. When we entered school last fall, we felt like privileged charactersg for we commanded the respect due seniors and the right to just a little more liberty, just a bit more whisper- ing, because this was our last year. After two trials we elected officers to un- dertake the many responsibilities of the senior class on the last lap of its journey toward the graduation port. They were as follows: Robert Trombley ........... President Mabel Start ...... . . . Vice-President Margaret Corliss . . . ..... Secretary Alan Sweeny ............. Treasurer During this year the leading positions on the "Mercury" staff fell to the seniors. The following were chosen for these: Alan Sweeny ................ Editor Miriam Wise ......... French Editor Janet MacCal1um . . . Managing Editor Margaret Corliss ...... Alumni Editor Kathleen Smith ....... Literary Editor Robert Hodet ........ Periscope Editor Mabel Start ..... Circulation Manager On November the ninth we held our first senior supper. It was in the form of a banquet, and a delicious supper was served under the supervision of Miss Rich. The after dinner speakers were-Miriam Wise, Richard Ray- mond and Mr. White. Robert Aunchman played two violin solos. It was a success in every Way, and a great deal of credit is due our President and Vice-President, Robert Trombley and Mabel Start for the delightful evening spent by all. Christmas time rolled round and the boys were right on deck with a skit to be given the Friday before vacation. The harmony quartet, modern school, and instrumental pieces were a credit to the boysg and it certainly was enjoyed, especially by the freshmen and sophomores, for it was the first witnessed by most of them. After the Christmas vacation our attention was turned toward examinations and marks for the first semester. All seniors wished to do well in every subject and start the new semester with clear slates and a big chance of eliminating those final "exams" by attaining the required average. Soon after the mid-years senior meetings were held, graduation being the main issue. It was voted at one such meeting to wear THE MERCURY 7 caps and gowns. We are the first class to extend this dignity to B. F. A. Mr. Dickinson also presented the idea of "Ivy Day" and we immediately decided to include this ceremony among our graduation festivities. Probably some of you witnessed this novel program, given under the direction of a capable com- mittee, this afternoon. The senior girls laid aside debates and dis- cussions on these subjects long enough to get together and plan a delightful, original skit for the Friday before Easter vacation. A mid- night feast in a girls' dormitory was the scene. All sorts of goodies were enjoyed to the envy of the audience, especially when the members of the faculty were treated to delicious cakes. fhe time and effort of the girls were well spent, for the entertainment was received with praise. The last of April the class had its second senior supper. The secretary and the treas- urer, Margaret Corliss and Alan Sweeny were hostess and host. For this occasion the supper was served buffet style. Instead of some of the seniors helping as they have in previous years, lkliss Rich and her Home Economics class took entire charge and the seniors were guests. George Bevins rendered two harmonica solos, Lawrence Locklin played an original com- position, Adrien Tremblay did a tap dance and Rachel Cole, llflabel Start and Miriam VVise presented a humorous skit following the supper. Then songs were enjoyed by everyone with Mrs. Atwood at the piano. This was a carefree, happy time when the boys could shout all they wished Without being reproved by Mr. Dickinson. In the last part of the Spring term it be- came necessary, upon the resignation of our President, Robert Trombley, to elect a new one. Richard Raymond was chosen for this oflice. At one of our senior meetings Mr. Dickinson made it known that the senior class play was to be over before final examinations and gradu- ation activities. Complying with this mandate, "Husbands On Approval" was presented on May 24 and 25. The cast was as follows: Nancy Glover .... .... L ucille Daley Rita Glover .... . . . Pauline Barsalou Mrs. Glover ............. Muriel Palmer Catherine, the maid ..... Katherine Rooney Sam Glover ........ Warren Marchessault Dick Fitzgerald ............. John White Colonel Maynard Rowe ..... Edwin Pelkey Bob Devon ........ f ...... Richard Jeffrey Kratz .......... .... R obert Aunchman Hamilton Seaver ........ Robert Trombley Did you see it? lf you did not you don't know what you missed. If you did you know what a success it was in every way. The class of 1934 is fortunate in having some outstanding musicians. Rachel Cole, Mabel Start, Miriam Wise, Margaret Corliss, lVIuriel Palmer and Elwyn Abell have played in our school orchestra much of the time during the four years. This year Rachel Cole was chosen at the State Festival to attend the New England Festival. This is a credit to the school and our class. All in all, I think our class is the best one that has ever graduated from B. F. A. Of course, you are saying, that's what they all say, but don't you really think we have proved our worth and will you not forgive the mis- takes we have made and always think of us kindly as we journey nearer and nearer the harbor until We can see the lights glimmering in the distance. We are loath to leave B. F. A., Mr. Dickinson with his stern commands and funny stories, and the faculty with their friendly aid and sympathy. The journey has been swift-it seems as if our friendships are only begun, but such is this voyage of life. The poet alone has words to express this in- "Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, Only a signal shone and a distant voice in the darknessg So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence."

A. It is more than the ab- sence of a teacher we feel, it is a friend who is gone. He was the friend of every boy and girl in the school. Friendliness was his pre- dominant characteristic. We can never forget Mr. Beauregard's classes. His sympathetic aid encouraged many to greater efforts. His stories interrupted the monotony of class work and made it more agreeable. The nature of his teaching inspired effort. It was like letting down a pal to shirk an assignment in one of his subjects. At the year's end in some strange manner you knew the subject and could remember only enjoying his class. He punished us at times but he was always justified. A week later we would be joking with him over the incident. At noon there was always a group of students rounding him at the end of the upper hall. He was always ready to help a student both in and out of school. He was one of the best- liked teachers in the building. To many he was the most popular. SUI'- -The door is closed between us now, but Mr. Beauregard's spirit will never leave our memories. It is bound there forever by the bonds of a hundred little incidents, in the classroom and out, which can never be broken. U ill- 915 -If ik- The Northern League Every June for years past, Vermont's schol- astic baseball battle has taken place, fought ............3g-.-..--...-...--if 2 -r ' --.........-.l.......--l by the newspapers and cheered on by the ad- herents of a dozen championship-claiming nines. The big diamond question seemed to be "pennant, pennant, Who's got the pennant ?" Nobody knew but everybody said he did. In some years a team of unquestioned superiority appeared, but these years were few. Usually two or three widely separated schools, with equally good records, laid claim to the mythical bunting. The unfortunate part of the argu- ment was that the only way of settling it lay in involved play-offs, and that distance or the closing of school prevented these. It was an unfortunate situation and seldom was satis- factorily disposed of. In order that Vermont high school teams should no more experience the customary pen- nant predicament, the Northern Vermont Baseball League was formed last fall. Not that the best team in this league will neces- sarily be crowned champion of Vermont, but the question will be settled among the north- ern teams at leastg and a championship game, it seems, could then easily be arranged with the southern leader. The Northern Baseball League, springtime approximate of the Northern Vermont Basket- ball League, certainly fills a long felt need in state schoolboy athletics. Comprised of seven of the largest schools in the northern territory, the league should furnish an undis- puted champion of northern Vermont base- ball. A play-off with the southern champion would establish the winning team in unchal- lenged possession of the interscholastic base- ball title. By settling the championship question, the league will end the yearly never-settled newspaper squabbles and should aid in furthering the feeling of good-will between the schools, by terminating the post- 16 THE MERCURY season disagreements of supporters Of the Various trophy claimants. It would Seem the logical step now to estab- lish a Vermont football league. Although attended by more difficulties than the forma- tion Of basketball and baseball associations, a football league including only the largest schools and divided into. a northern and southern division with provision for a play- off seems practical. The papers and supporters wrangle just as long over the football cham- pionship as they do over the baseball. There- fore if the league system brings the baseball championship controversy under control, a football league should certainly be formed. Any way you look at it, the Northern Baseball League will improve the tenor of state high school athletics. We hail it as a definite step toward the goal Of perfection in the relations between Vermont high Schools. The staff of THE MERCURY wishes to ex- press its appreciation tO Miss Cross and the Commercial Department for their cooperation in making this year's MERCURY a success. We wish also to thank the proof readers, Marjorie Culver and Rachel Cole, for their assistance.

After some fourteen weeks of training in New York City with a class of about thirty others se- lected from colleges all over the United States, I crossed the continent to sail from San Francisco, Oct. 15, 1929, by the Dollar Liner 'President IVIcKinley,' in company with five of my classmates. "Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, was our first sight of land after a pleasant week at sea, and we all went ashore to stretch our legs, rest our eyes with the beautiful verdant scenery and enjoy the surf of Waikiki Beach. Then there were a couple of stops at Yokohama and Kobe in Japan where we got our first taste of the Orient, had our first ricksha rides, ate of the famed sukiaki, and for the first time felt ourselves as foreigners, with a language not our own spoken all about us, "The large and busy city of Shanghai was our first Chinese port of call, and those of us who did not have orders to stop there were just as well pleased-there was too much of the hurried air of New York there to suit us. "We steamed into the entrancingly beautiful harbor of Hongkong in the evening just as the sun was setting and the very blue waters were reflecting its red and gold. On Victoria Island, opposite the Kowloon docks, the lights could just be seen picking out the Corkscrew road to the summit of 'The Peak,' habitat of Hongkongys elite. "I was sent to Amoy, a seaport some four I. me rum- hundred miles north of Hongkong for my first year. Amoy was famed in the days of the clipper ships as the packing place for Formosan tea, my own impression of it now is that it is an extremely pleasant place to live in since most of the Europeans, numbering some three hundred, live on the pretty little island of Kulangsu in the harbor. I 'fDuring the next eight months I was sta- tioned at Swatow, another Chinese seaport which is now growing in commercial impor- tance, about midway between Hongkong and Amoy. The last year and four months of my term was spent at Singapore, Straits Settle- ments, where I had an opportunity to do a great deal of travelling throughout the Straits Settlements, IVIalaya, Sumatra, Borneo, and into Siam. Singapore, though situated but seventy miles north of the equator and having a very warm and humid climate, is, never- theless, a beautiful and healthful place in which to live. Besides being the maritime 'crossroads of the world', that city gives one the immediate impression of the most cos- mopolitan spot on earth. "After completion of my services with the Standard Oil Co., having plenty of time to come home via Europe, I spent six months doing that in company with some friends, ar- riving home about the first of June, IQ33.H Recent marriages among the alumni are: lXIiss Dorothy Heffion '21-John W.

Pupils from thirty-three schools entered this contest in which a first prize of S150 and a second prize of S100 were awarded for the best essays, short stories, and poems. Miss Field's short story which won first prize was, "Wanted-A Maid." Mr. E. H. Royce has presented to the school a silver tennis trophy in memory of his father, Mr. S. F., Royce, a former chairman of the board of trustees of this school. A singles tournament will be held each season limited to students of B. F. A. and the winner's name will be engraved on the cup. A dance was given in the gymnasium Friday, April 20, to raise funds for the tennis team. Henry Press' Geometricians furnished the music. Dances on Friday, April I3 and Saturday, May I2 were sponsored by the Mothers' Club of Bellows Free Academy. Twenty-one juniors, all of whom had in some way taken part in the Junior Jamboree, enjoyed a dinner party in the private dining room of the Cafeteria, Saturday, April 14. After dinner impromptu speeches were given by Eliot Tobin, class president, and Rhoda Fogg, vice-president, and a brief financial re- port was given by George Bryce, treasurer. Lee Whitcomb was master of ceremonies. The final examinations for seniors will be given from May 29 to June 4, and for fresh- men, sophomores, and juniors from June 4 to 8. The program for graduation is as follows: June 8 Junior Prom June IO Baccalaureate sermon at the Epis- copal Church Junior Prize Speaking June II June I2 Class Day June I3 Graduation June I4 Alumni Banquet June I6 Senior Class Ride Alan Sweeny, class treasurer, and Mar- garet Corliss, class secretary, were host and hostess at the senior supper Thursday eve- ning April 26. The decoration of the dining room was under the supervision of Miriam Wise and was artistically done in pastel colors of spring. After supper the following pro- gram was enjoyed: harmonica solo, George Bevinsg tap dance, Adrian Tremblayg piano solo, Lawrence Locklin, who played one of his own compositions, and finally a short skit entitled "The Triangle," which displayed the dramatic talents of Mabel Start, Rachel Cole, Miriam Wise, and lVLiriam's dog "Skip," Following the entertainment a dance was held in the gymnasium, THE MERCURY 19 E- . l V J!f'ig , FL t ' "-:V ,.!A-: -b ' r A G ' . ,.- R 1 i '11 NJf'l,- - 1-A - was- '.

May I extend my best regards for a suc- cessful year to my predecessors. We learn by secret channels, not the English channel, that Johnny Willson has accumulated a telephone bill amounting to 51.40 by calling Highgate. It seems that Eddie Simpson is going to the minister's house quite a bit lately and it is not to see the minister either. Seeing that the Senior class is going to wear caps and gowns why not have them striped and with numbers on the front? We hear rumors that a certain young man of the Senior class by the name of White is very much interested in Florida, Miss Florida to be exact. We've heard that Southern girls are very attractive and interesting. There must be something to it or Jack wouldn't over-look the girls of B. F. A. for a girl from far away Florida.

That Shakespeare was named after Miss Cunningham. That every time the telephone rings Lu- cille Daley starts for the oflice. It's become that much of a habit with her. That many students would like to slay the goose that lays the monthly goose-eggs. That John Hojaboom is a member of the English IV Commercial Class.

F. A. We picked these up in the corridors. Favorite songs are very prominent, especially "Waiting At The Gate For Katy," sung by Dick Jeffrey to Kate Stone. "What's Sauce For The Goose is Sauce For The Gander' is Dutchy Aunchman's favorite. Then "Pretty Polly Perkins" fwhich we changed to Barsalou, is dedicated to Polly Barsalou who certainly can keep 'em "Stringin' Along On A Shoe String." We're singing "The Last Round-up" for our dear little freshmen whose meetings are just as the song indicates. When Mr. Papineau says "Write 200 French rules for tomorrow," the inevitable result is a chorus of "Oh, You Nasty Man!" Tensy Marchessault's favorite is "There's Something About A Soldierf, Warren is always telling Katherine that "Your Time Is My Time." Lolly and Babe-we're that surprised! "So At Last Its Come To This." Our advice to Janette Regan-"Keep Young And Beauti- fulf' Bob Deso regards a certain street as his "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams." I wonder if itls Cedar Street? When Miss Cunningham says to Shorthand Ill classes "Take these letters and transcribe them,', among a number of "Oh's,' and "Ah's" we find our favorite song to her, "You're An Old Meanie." Fortuna has changed hunting grounds. Winooski is the honored place now. Perhaps some of the rest will have a chance in Swan- ton. White is quite taken up with his bicycling. Think of it-down to the lake and back every Sunday. Is it just for exercise? Pelkey's favorite sport is fishing. And in Alburg-- tsk-tsk! The Senior Play "Husbands On Ap- proval" is creating a sensation with regard to its title. Some members of the B. F, A. faculty fthe fair sexj refuse to let us put the stickers on their cars. Causes them too much embarrassment when they go out of town! That's enough for now. LUCILLE DALEY ,34 THE MERCURY 21 This story Won the S150 scholarship offered by the University of Vermont for the best short story submitted by high school students of the state. WANTED-A MAID llIary Ellen sat dreamily in a garden chair, watching the butterflies in the bright garden. All during the winter months Mary Ellen was an instructor in English in a co-educa- tional college in a distant part of the state, but when summer came she put all thought of work behind her and settled down to enjoy herself. Suddenly she was aroused from her happy thoughts by quick steps coming through the hall. Then a voice called, "Mary Ellen! Oh Mary Ellen! Where are you?" Before Mary Ellen could answer, the owner of the voice appeared in the doorway leading from the porch to the house. She was an attractive girl, several years older than Mary Ellen, but now she was frowning, and spoke in a voice filled with exasperation. "Well, Nora has gone!" she announced, as she dropped into an easy chair near her sister- in-law. Mary Ellen regarded her visitor rather absently. "Why make such a fuss about it. she aksed. "You and I can get along until you can find someone else." "Is that so ?" said Marion Leslie. "That's all you know about it. Have you forgotten that Dave is bringing a man home with him tomorrow to stay several days? If it were pos- sible for us to get some one out here-which it isnlt today, how could We break her in by lunch time tomorrow? Do come out of your dream and try to figure some way out of the awful mess we are in." Mary Ellen was in a dream no longer. She had forgotten all about her brother's friend, this noted scientist he was so anxious to please. "Why in the world had Nora taken this day of all days to leave? What could be done ?" P77 For some minutes there was silence. Then, suddenly, Mary Ellen gave a little cry and began to giggle. She sat up, her eyes dancing with fun. "I have it! Oh I have it! Marion. What a lark! Behold in me the new maid of all works!" she said between giggles. Marion looked at her laughing sister-in- law. "It's no laughing matter to me, if it is to you," she said, sharply. "Dave is so par- ticular about this man that I can't tell him not to have him come out. I might have known you would see only the funny side of it." Mary Ellen stopped laughing, but her eyes still sparkled. 'Tm not making fun, Marion, Dear," she said quietly. "I mean it. Why not let me be cook and waitress until this man has gone? He doesn't know that Dave has a sister, and you know I really can cook. It would be like a play. Oh, I'd love to do it! Why not ?" Marion Leslie sat looking at Mary Ellen, too astonished for Words. Then she said, slowly: "Mary Ellen, I believe you could do it. I don't know what Dave will say, but I can't seem to see any other way out. And, after all, it's only for two days!" "So you do think it will work?" "Yes, I believe it will." The next morning when David Leslie and his friend arrived, they were met at the door by Marion, cool and charming in white linen. As she kissed her husband, she managed to whisper, "Don't ask any questions." David was puzzled, but he followed in- structions g and when the guest had been shown to his room, Marion rushed him to the kitchen. There his startled and surprised eyes saw! a trim maid, in a neat black dress, a tiny white cap and a wisp of organdie that answered for an apron. Suddenly the maid burst into laughter, and then, for the first time, he realized that he was looking at his sister. "What in thunder--"he began, but Marion let him go no further. She quickly exf 22 THE MERCURY plained the situation, watching him carefully as she did so. "Some jokeli' he said, almost helpless with laughter. !'Oh, what a joke! But I'll have to hand it to you, Sis. You are some looker in that outfitf' A step on the stair sent David out of the kitchen followed by his wife. But Mary Ellen stood where she was, her eyes on the door swinging shut after her brother and Marion. "Hm-m-m-!" she said at last, slowly and thoughtfully. "I donlt like the way that boy acted. There is something fishy back of that laugh of his, and I am going to find out what it is, too." She did-much sooner than she expected! When lunch time came around, the family seated themselves at the attractive table. The guest looked with pleasure at the sight of the dainty doilies, the crisp rolls, the fruit cocktails in tall amber glasses. Out in the kitchen Mary Ellen had the lunch all ready to serve. She washed her hands and powdered her nose, then tiptoed Over t0 the door for one look at the guest. She swung the door open a bit and took one peep-and jumped back her face filled with horror. What in the world should she do? Perhaps she had been mistaken. She would look once more. Again she opened the door a crack. No, she was right the first time, and her brother's guest, was no other than Dr. Ernest Allen, the head of the Science Department at her own college, a man she had always admired and worshiped at a distance. That was why Dave had laughed! He knew and yet he had let her go on! Ah, he'd PHY for this! But just then the buzzer sounded, and setting her cap more firmly on her red head she opened the door and entered the dining room. As Mary Ellen came toward the table Dr. Allen looked up from his cocktail. For a moment he sat there, spoon in hand, his startled gaze on the maidg then he regained control of himself and returned to his lunch. But he closely watched Mary Ellen as she capably removed the cocktail glasses and served the rest of the meal. When at last she left the room he turned to his hostess. f'Rather unusual type of maid you have, Mrs. Leslie," he said easily. "Has she been with you long ?" "Oh, yes, indeed. She has been with us for years,', she answered rather quickly. "Do have another roll, Dr. Allen." For some reason or other David Leslie kept out of his sister's way that afternoon. He saw to it that Dr. Allen was always in sightg and he chuckled wickedly when he saw Mary Ellen shake her small fist at him from the kitchen door. He could not let a joke like this go by him. Dinner passed off smoothly, and with a and sigh of relief Mary Ellen saw Marion David with their guest disappear into the living room. As she cleared the table she wondered if he had recognized her. She had not been able to tell by the few glances she had managed to steal. Ah, What a mess! Out in the living room the men were smok- ing. What could three people do? How llvlarion wished for lllary Ellen to make a fourth at bridge. At length, Dr. Allen threw away his half- smoked cigarette and said, "I believe I'll wander about the garden a bit, Leslie, if you don't mind. It looks inviting." "Why, we'll all go, Dr. Allen," said llflarion. "This is the best time of the day." "Just a minute, Marion," said David quick- ly. "Run along, doctor. We'll be with you presently." "Well of all things!" exclaimed Marion when the doctor was out of earshot. "David Leslie, you are positively rude to let Dr. Allen go off by himself like that." "VVait a minute, honey," said her husband. "Wait a minute! Unless I am mistaken our honored guest is at this moment at the kitchen door talking to our new maid." Out in the kitchen Mary Ellen had just finished her dishes. "Good evening, Miss Leslie," said a voice from the doorway. "I hope your mistress fContinued on Page 24, - s S fq.

Never had she looked more attractive, with her flushed cheeks and moist curls framing her face. Dr. Allen stood in the doorway, his black eyes laughing in a way Mary Ellen, the teacher, had never seen them do. An imp of mischief peeped out of the girl's eyes as she said, de- murely, "Oh, no, sir. She even lets me take my followers into the dining roomf' "All right, go ahead, for I'm following right behind," said the doctor, smilingly. "But I don't understand how you can be so different," he remarked some time later, after explanations had been made. "I guess I'll have to ask your brother to let us come up here for a week-end, once in a while," sug- gested the doctor eagerly. "I don't like the idea of losing the real you, now that I have found you.'7 Mary Ellen blushed delightfully, as she slid down from the kitchen table where she had been sitting. "Well, I might, perhaps, forget, once in a while, that I was a teacher," she said en- ,couragingIy. "And now, don't you think you'd better go back and prepare your host and hostess for the appearance of the "help" in their midst? They'll wonder what has become of you." But Dr. Allen lingered, "You'll be right along?" "Give me fifteen minutes," answered Mary Ellen, with a laugh. Left alone in the kitchen, the girl stood for a moment gazing dreamily into space. Ah, he was wonderful, much nicer than she ever thought he could be. She could hardly wait to get back to college. She took off her apron and hung it behind the door. Then seeing a bowl of prunes on the table she absently salted it liberally before putting it away in the refrigerator.
