FACULTY MEMBERS RELATE EXPERIENCES OF CHRISTMAS TRIPS
By Ann Mereness
Two members of Montreat’s
College faculty visited places out
of the ordinary this past holiday,
’ri.ny wore Dr. Reeves who visited
rel itives in California and Miss
Watkins who took a flying trip
to Cuba.
Dr. Reeves first went to St.
IjOu’s, where she was met by a
friend of her teaching days in
Ching Yu College, China. From
St. Louis she boarded a plane for
Los Angeles where she arrived
that evening to spend ton days.
She said that Christmas was a
memorable day since all members
of the “Reeves tribe’’ were to
gether.
Before leaving California, how
ever, Dr. Reeves was present at
the tournament of Roses held an
nually at Pasadena, just preceed-
ing the Rose Bowl game. She en
joyed this spectacle of color im
mensely, hut what seemed to
please her most was the opport
unity to see again so many of
' er friends that were connected
with her work in the Orient.
Miss Watkins was also enjoy
ing herself this Christmas. She
went to Cuba! On her trip, she
was fortunate to see friends and
former alumnae of Montreat. On
the way down, she visited Miss
Mary Lander, a Montreat music
teacher; at the Mantanzas Semin
ary there was the president to
welcome her, uncle of EMILITA
RODIGUEZ, alumnae, and the
aunt of MARTHA WILLIAM
SON. She was told that Martha
is now married and has a child.
Having flown from Miami to
Havana, Miss Watkins was met
by Miss Allie May Arey, a teach
er at La Progressiva, a school in
Cardenas. One of the most inter
esting .sights was the Tree of
Fratern'ty, growing in soil
brought from each American re
public. In the capitol building in
Havana are hung pictures of great
•Americans, the two of most inter
est to North Americans being
Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt.
Prom Havana the group travelled
to Cardenas and then on to the
Vara Dero beach where they en-
oyed the December bathing. Be
fore leaving. Miss Watkins met
the family of NELLIE GARCIA
and visited in the home of CON-
SUELO ROBLEDO.
There were many rainbows on
the trip back which were espec
ially beautiful when viewed from
the air. Miss Watkins in Miami
saw HELEN HARDY Smith and
met B. A.’s charming mother and
sister. She also spent part of her
time with DOROTHY HAMBRICK
Moore, now the wife of a doctor.
Although the mission field in
which she worked for three years
was further inland. Miss Watkins
felt her trip to Cuba a delightful
and rewarding one since she en
countered so many old friends and
made a great many new ones.
