While visiting New York, Bill and I had
the privilege of seeing the new Broadway
hit, “New Faces.”
We were taken with Barbara and Ray,
a cloud, to a land of dreams. The fir.=*
melody was, “I’m In Love With a Wonder
ful Guy,” sung by a group of girls mak
ing their debut that night. As we observed
Barbara and Ray exchanging their senti
ments of this tune, we found ourselves
doing likewise, because, I, too knew what
a wonderful guy Bill was.
Then, the new starlet, Janice Blackburn,
danced a ballet to “Younger Than Spring
time.” As Thelma Grant sang the words,
we recalled the springtime that we first
met. This has been our theme song, too.
Hearing “I’m Gonna Wash That Man
Right Out of My Hair” brought to my mind
the time he gave me a baby rattler for
my birthday and told me to act my age.
I Was all of 18 years old, too! I felt like
washing him out of hy hair, just as B. J.
Zeigler did on the stage.
Quincy Bault performed a most dra
matic dance, while Barbara Hill accompan
ied her as soloist in “Bali Hi.” It seemed
to cast a spell over us—as though we had
been carried to that sea island, also.
Genevieve Landrum sang “Make Believe,”
e perfect name for the dream land we
Rill,” sung by vocalist Joan Hill, ex
pressed the very words that I had always
Wanted to say to my Bill, but I had lacked
the courage. I’ve never been good at ex
pressing my feelings.
Martha Stone not only was dramatic, but
also lived every word of the “Riff Song”—
^ song so like the desert land in which
she was raised.
No truer words were spoken than in
tha vocal and dance routine “You’re Just
m Love” by Berky Jo Cooper and Sandra
rye. Ray first told Barbara of his love
or her while they listened to this song.
It Would soon be time to leave this
ream land that had enraptured us, but
0 performance would not have been com-
P eie without Margie Blackstone singing
You Never Walk Alone.” These words
applied to Barbara and Ray, Bill and me,
and every other couple in love. There is
another meaning, deeper and richer than
e love a couple have for each other,
is the assurance of God’s great love for
*^s. While He is in our hearts, we never

Dear 14 Wonderful Seniors:
I’ve heard about how unique and talented
you are, and also that you are whole
some, effective, charming, and winsome
girls! So, I promise to try my very best
to get the things you’ve requested.
Good luck to each of you—

While you go around to make everyone
happy, tell all my friends Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year for me. Also I wish
you would fix the cameras so that the pic
tures next year will turn out, and please
bring me a “roller-skate-escalator” combi
nation so that I can get around this camp
Hello, friends! My name is “Blugo” and
I visit Montreat each year during the soc
cer tournaments and, believe you me, I
always look fonvard to this time.
Here are the highlights of the two
tournaments between the Blue and Gold
During the first quarter of the first
game. Broom cleverly scored 1 point; by
half time the Blue team had a total of
4 points. In the third and fourth quart
ers Gillespie recovered the ball and made
3 points while Blackburn scored 2. Bishop
in her gentle manner, during the third
quarter, triumphed for only 1 point for
the Gold, ending the game with a score
of 9-1 in favor of the Blue.
The second game was livelier for the
Blue team, but was without points during
the first half, while the Gold team had 4
points made by Landrum and another point
by Bishop. During the third and fourth
quarters. King quickly scored 2 points,
while Gillespie gracefully hurled in 2 more
points, along with points for 2 penalty
kicks, thus ending the tournament with
a G-s’ score. Blues the champions.
Goodbye until next year. Congratula
tions to both teams for their fine spirit!
Since my elves tell you’ve been quite
good, I’ll do my best to bring you a roles-
cator (my own invention.)
P. S.—I’ll deliver your messages too!
Please bring Betty Raye a guy from Fort
Dear Betty Raye:
Don’t ask me, ask the General!

What will you do with those cities?
Would you settle for one person from each?
The situation sounds drastic! Look for me
