“This is our year for the amphi
theater,” laughs Mrs. Frances W.
Stevens as she prepares for May
Day 1969. According to her the
weather has alternated between
fair and foul for the last few years;
and since last year was foul, this
year has to be fair. Anyone who
has walked around the lake recently
realizes what a beautiful setting it
will make for the May Day festivi
ties and surety is hoping that Mrs.
Stevens is right.

senior May Queen and Maid of
Honor and the senior, junior, sopho

was limited to Meredith students
and was by advance ticket sales

Perry had the following comment

we tried to plan something new and
different for this year. We hope we
