It was hilly and green and very humid, but it was hot!” she laughs. Barbara was enrolled in nine different classes including radio and television, creative writing, feature writing, editorial writ ing and news writing. “I enjoyed the radio and TV class very much. I wrote and directed my own radio script which was later broadcasted to one of the dormitories. “I also worked on the Summer Session Kansan which was pub lished twice a week. Our adviser was very funny and he enjoyed sending us to places declared off bounds for campers to get a story.” Classes were usually held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sometimes it was so warm that they would hold their afternoon classes at night. “Although our dormitory was described as “one of our loveliest scholarship halls,” it was very old and had no air conditioning. There were only 24 girls staying there while about 800 were housed in one of the modern and air condi tioned dormitories around the campus. “We were kind of isolated from the other girls and all of the boys which had its disadvan tages, but we became better friends with each other because of it. “The students came from all over the United States. I was the only one in journalism from the Pacific Northwest, but oth ers came from California, Flor ida, Connecticut, Illinois, Texas and many other states.” No classes were held on week ends, so the campers had plenty of time for sightseeing. “Besides learning more in the field of journalism, I learned more about people and the Unit ed States. I had no idea that peo ple and their ideas could be so different. I certainly enjoyed the experience,” she concluded. Europe, Orient, Alaska visited by wandering faculty members Rock-climbing in the Italian Alps, photographing grizzlies, and sampling gourmet foods of Europe were some of the activi ties of our traveling teachers. Others scuba dived and climbed mountains in Greece and Cana da. Miss Gail Wright picked up her new Volkswagon in Europe. She drove through the Netherlands, Switzer land, Italy, Belgium, Great Britain, Austria and Ger many. “Scotland is the most beauti ful part of Britain, with the downs and all,” she said. “We stayed in private homes there advertising “Bed and Breakfast,” (similar to boarding homes) as we did throughout the trip.” “The most thrilling part of the trip was the hiking and rock- climbing trip in the Italian Alps. The Sierra club sponsored three weeks of hiking in the Austrian, Swiss and Italian Alps,” she said. Clarence Beyer took his family to Alaska. For a week they lived in a remote Forest Servicce cabin on a small lake. “We had to take a seaplane into it,” said Mr. Beyer. “I lost count of the fish I caught.” They also toured Alaska while camping out in tents as they Department stores choose hi boards Hi board members for many of the department stores have been chosen for the 1966-67 school year.

Miss Wilma Crabtree also •' visited Alaska. “We saw mountain sheep, grizzly bear and elk,” she stated. “The highlight of the trip was the visit to Dawson City.” The deserted parts of the city reminded her of a ghost town. In Dawson Miss Crabtree saw the annual celebration of Robert Service’s poetry. “The Crema tion of Sam Magee” and other poems were acted out. Miss Dorothy Johnson also was in Alaska this summer. She taught at Alaska Meth odist university in Anchor age, and traveled about the state when the term ended. “I have a pin certifying that I’ve crossed the Arctic Cir cle,” said Miss Johnson. She visited an Eskimo village, Mendenhall Glacier, and Nome. “You had to fly everywhere,” she stated. “There are very few roads in the state. It was quite an experience,” she concluded. Mrs. Elva Newcomer toured the Orient, visiting Taipee, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Angkor Wat, Bangkok, Singapore, Man ila, Melbourne, Sydney, Aukland, Nandi, and Hono lulu. “We have a beautiful grand daughter!” exclaimed Mrs. New comer, who saw the child for the first time on Taiwan. “Spending time there with my son and his family was the best part of the trip.” “We enjoyed every place, we were. People look, dress, and drive differently,” she stated. “They were very nice and cour teous. The language barrier was no problem.” “We saw Christina Lim, our 1964-65 exchange student, in Singapore. Her family was very nice to us.” Miss Mary Rask attended school in Mexico. She stud ied Mexican conversation and culture, and took trips to interesting spots. “One weekend we visited Puerto Vallarta, a seaside town where “Night of the Iguana” was filmed. The water was very warm, and the sounds at night were weird,” she said. “We also visited Guantajuato, an old Spanish colonial town. It was like old Spain,” she com mented. “I attended a birthday party in the home village of one of the maids in my house. We danced, ate and sang. It was really fun,” she added. Miss Janet Jack drove through the Canadian Roek ies. “I was thrilled by the mountains, especially when climbing Mt. Whistler and Mt. Sulpher,” she comment ed. “We visited Lake Lou ise, Banff, and Jasper.” Mrs. Marjorie Prendergast drove through western Europe. “I got a Volvo in Brussels,” she stated. Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Yugoslavia, Belgium, Germany, Holland and Sweden were visited. “I tasted everything I possibly could, except escargot (snails). I also collected pastries!” she ex-! claimed. “We did an awful lot of shopping,” she continued. “We even scuba dove in Greece.” DICK CARVER'S Majestic Drive In Cleaners Deep Cleaning Draperies OPEN TUESDAYS THROUGH THURSDAYS AND SATURDAYS — 9:30 - 5:30 East Side Hollywood District 281-2404 3801 N.E.
