ncr have Ken carrying on a "pen
friend" correspondence with Eng
lish girls and recently a letter came
from 15-year-old Eileen Margaret
Cooper of 5 Yewlands Cottages.
Park Road, Banstead, Surrey, which
has been left with the Gazette
Times for publication because ther
is much of interest to young and
jld alike. She writes:
Dear Penfriend: You will, no
doubt, forgive me if this letter
should be uninteresting and boring,
as I know nothing of you or your
interests, also there is always so
much to tell a person who knows
nothing at all abou you. In this
letter, therefore, I will keep main
ly to my every day life.
I am fifteen, have light brown
hair and eyes, am about five feet
one inch tall and although not re- I
ally ugly am quite plain. If I can I
gi t any photo taken soon, I'll send
you one and then you'll be able to
see for yourself.
Our house is not very modern or
very large but as our family has
increased during the war years we
hoped to be able to find a bigger
house when the homeless have all
found places to live.
My mother and father are both
short, with black hair and dark
brown eyes. I have three sisters.
Dawn, a plump, attractive girl of
17, with dark brown hair and eyes:
Janet has fairly light brown hair
and dark eyes. She is nine. The
youngest is Felicity, aged six, who
has very dark hair and almost
black, mischievous eyes.
The house is in the suburbs,
about 10 or 11 miles from London,
but I've only been to London once
other than to change trains when
going down to the country for hol
idays. Banstead is quite a large
village, wih its main street about a
mile long consisting of all kinds of
shops, garages, hotels, banks, the
school, church and the institute
which serves as a concert hall, club
room, welfare center, dance hall
and anything that needs a stage or
floor. Local whist drives are there
and its walls are lined with cup
boards containing the books of the
county library which is open Mon
days and Fridays. The population
of Banstead is 28,000.
It is shut olf from the rest of Lon
don to the north and Surrey to the
south by extensive downs. The
countryside is lovely and I just ad-
niversary Monday evening. They
had a pleasant social evening with
refreshments of cake and ice cream.
Tom Caldwell got back Monday
from the Willamette valley where
he spent some weeks with his sons
and their families.
Mrs. Nona O'Brien and daughter
Thclma of Menlo, Wash., arrived
Monday to visit her son Glen and
family and look after property in
terests. Martin Abken, Clarence Rucher
and Wayne Swaggart returned from
a trip to the mountains Monday.
The student body cleared $200
for the student body fund with the
carnival that they held Friday eve
ning. They had a good program.
ore the fields and woods that give
me such a chance of outdoor life.
We live on the highest point of the
north downs. From our house you
go down in all directions. The
downs dip gently down to London
and steeply down to the rest of
Surrey. Its loveliness is spoilt only
by the Londoners who flock down
from tlte city at week ends and
holidays to spend the day in this
beauty spot so close to the roar and
bustle of town and yet so aloof and
far off in its peace. The road across
the downs to the nearest town, Sut
ton, is only three miles long and
after that the houses and shops are
continuous right up and mingle into
the London buildings.
Croydon airport, although eight
miles away by road, is not far be
hind our house and we can watch
planes landing and taking off. It is
not a very big airport but I am
sure you must have heard of it, as,
until recently, it was London's airport.
Well, I hadn't meant to describe
the place in such great detail so
now I'll get on to what I did want
to tell you.
I spend very little time at home
as"I leave for school at 7:30 a. m
and return about 5 p. m.
The school is named Nonsuch af
ter the park in which it stands. The
school itself is a very modern build
ing built only two years before the
war, but the park and its ancient
palace have a history. It's the one
that Henry VIII, gave to his second
wife Anne Boleyn, and is very
much the same now as then. The
trees are very old now of course
and many have fallen, as soldiers in
battle. The palace is repaired as
it decays and the gardens are mar
velous. It is only a girls' school and is a
county or secondary school I used
to go to school in our own Main
street until I won a scholarship in
1941. Then I came here. That was
long ago now and this year I am in
5B so I will take my matriculation
next June. The mistresses are all
very kind and teach with great con
sideration for the pupils but I will
explain the democratic lines on
which it is run in my next letter as
it would take too long now.
When I arrive home at night I am
very tired. It takes me about an
hour and a half to get home. I go
by train from Cheam to Sutton,
change trains, catch the Epsom
Downs train to Banstead, then take
a bus to the main street and walk
the rest. After tea I have to do my
home work and I very rarely go out
in the evenings except Thursdays
I go swimming and Friday nights I ,
go to Guides. j
At Guides I am P. L. of Bluett ;
Patrol. It used to consist of 10
girls who I have trained from
tenderfoots, but they have nearly
all finished their second class now.
Tonight, however, I will have a
new patrol as some of the older
girls, mostly the old P. L.'s, have
gone to Rangers now and so we
have to choose new patrols to even
things out a bit.
Easter this year three of the P.
L.'s. Marjorie, Shirley and myself,
went to Mickleham to camp with
captain and lieutenant. The wea
ther was fine and we had a good
time. We managed to plant pota
toes for the farm as well.
Whitsun we camp at Blackland,
West Hoathley, near East Quin
stead in Sussex. This is a lovely
site right in the Weald and if only
the weather had been kinder we
could have done quite a bit of
worthwhile sightseeing.
