Wednesday, March 28 Not know
ing quite what was in store for
us, we thirteen Bermuda-bound
Salemites, with Mrs. Mary Louise
Lowe and Mrs. Pepper, boarded
the plane for New York. We had
a brief wait in Washington in

-After having arrived in New
York, we split into small groups

too early and boarded the PAA for
sunny Bermuda. We were all fas
cinated by the cocktail lounge on
the plane, especially Jean Stone.

our dates took us to hear the
Whiffenpoofs, and Calypso music.
Strictly Ivy League stuff.
The more adventurous of us got
our box lunches and set out for
Elbow Beach where we spent the

our first Rugby match — Yale vs.
Dartmouth. After cocktail hour
and dinner we requested “Dixie”

erners were around. If this brought
no results, our second tactic was

giving them the tie for second

As everywhere else, Saturday
night is a big night in Bermuda.
It proved disastrous to Jane though,

friends, got lost from her date.
