INTRODUCING XX hen first you touch this surpassingly fine ex ample of the silversmith's art - thrill to its superb design, sense its charm and distinction — you will know in your heart that Princess Ingrid is truly a royal possession .. .destined for you. For there s a regal splendor about this newest Frank M. Whiting creation which speaks of old-world craftsmanship . . . and whispers of candle-lit ||f banquets at the court of kings. Corner Front & Market Sts. ‘Cynthia Reports” By CYNTHIA JOHNSON Snowball fights and sleigh rides reigned supreme again this past week-end when the snow fell al most continously from Friday night until late Sunday afternoon. The snow of the past weeks had almost melted, but this recent snow replenished the supply and afforded newly iced driveways anjj streets which were soon turn ed into runways for sleds guided by warmly clad boys and girls. At intervals along the blocked off streets, fires blazed, providing warmth for the sledders between rides down the hill. When your turn comes to ride, you flop down on the sled give a little push with one foot and speed away to the sound of the ice crunching be neath the slick sieel runners. As you fly down the hill, the wind whizzes past you, and the flying particles of powdery snow hit against your cheeks and catch in your hair. The ride ends at the bottom of the hill, but there is the climb back up to the top still to be considered. After a deep breath, you gather up the sled, and, shaking the snow from your hair, start for the fire and friends that wait for you atop the hill. The stars twinkle brightly above you as you trudge back to the crowd, and the moon beams down, making the road ahead of you silver in its frosty light. Win ter nights may be cold and brisk, but they are also the most beauti ful of the whole year. But, winter will not last for long, and already we at Webster are preparing for the pageant to be presented on May Day. It is to be a dramatization in dances ol Ihe music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Bess Lundeen from Atlanta, Ga., has been chosen for the queen, Sylvia Goebbel for Oberon, and Bettie Payne for Puck. Members of the dancing classes will take the parts of the fairies and mechan ics while the part of Bottom, the comic, will be Taken by Eleanor Hyatt from Maine. The festivities will take place on the front cam pus in front of the throne tor the May queen and her court. The queen and her attendants have been voted on by the student body, and will be announced a few days before the festival. When I think of May Day, I re member what a wonderful time NHHS had at one of their cele brations. Dot Romeo reigned as Queen while Jay Carter was King. Some of the attendants were Ann Adams and Jane Head, who were freshmen at that time. Each homeroom set up a booth, and changed the park into a colorful gathering of products and people. Miss Dunham's homeroom won the prize with their hot-dog stand built in the shape of a large wein er roll with the weiner protrud ing a little on each end. Those were some mighty fine times. Don't guess anything can take the place of days spent as a student at New Hanover. At one 01 our recent assemblies, we had the privilege of hearing a talk by Mrs. Lilian Mowrer. the wife of Edward Mowrer who is a Pulizter prize winning author. She is of medium height, had dark hair, and very piercing but un derstanding eyes. As she began to speak, almost everyone found themselves smiling because her words were delivered with a very pronounced but pleasing English accent. She told us of the Wom an's Action Committee a commit tee that has been set up to study and more fully understand the United Nations. It is composed o( women, young and old, who want to do their part in helping to es tablish lasting peace. Many of the students here at Webster joined, and besides having a cfiance to do what they can in, solving prob lems confronting the United Na tions, they received the following invitation: Mrs. Harry S. Truman requests the presence of all the members of the Woman's Action Committee at a tea to be given in their honor at the White House on the evening ot March 27. Need less to say, we are all going to lake advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Music lovers had a chance this past week-end to sit and swoon, or 1 should say, sit and sway,4o the smooth rhythms of Sammy Kaye. He played a personal ap pearance at Loew’s Capitol, and really afforded an interval of su per swing — and melodious mel odies. The Kaydets were on hand for the vocals, which were in tip top older. Not so very long ago, there was another artist in the singing world on hand to bring you tunes of the times. She was Bonnie Baker, well-known singer of the old-timer. “Oh, Johnny.” When you see Miss Baker, you can understand why her voice re sembles that of a rather young person. She is very small, blonde, and wins her audience immediate ly -u ith a warm, welcoming smile. P. S.—She sho’ can sing! That's about all the notes in my little black book for now, to I’ll close up my typewriter and vcall it a day. I'm marking off the days till March 28—reason, that’s the beginning of our spring holidays, end I’ll be headin’ for home—and my folks. So long! * * * S. F.
