Here I am back at the keyboard, hoping I get a big response from our classmates for this column for the Class of 1948. Alas, the news is somewhat meager. However, we can all count on Elizabeth Dyer Brewster to provide news. She wrote that she’s still in Memphis but is planning her annual trip to Naples, Fla. She sees her brother, Richard R. Dyer ’42, in Fort Myers and her sister, Nancy Dyer Bacon, who attended Colby for one year before transferring. * I have a continuing correspondence with Howell Clement, who lives in Kalispell, Mont., and wrote that it was snowing there Nov. 30. We communicate about four or five times a year and it’s great to maintain contact with my summer-of-1944 roommate. Following that semester I enlisted in the Navy. * I called Frannie Hyde Stephan the other day and we made a tentative date to get together following the holidays. Frannie lives on Singer Island, about five or six miles from my home in Jupiter. Both of us were cheerleaders at the football games back in ’47. The team did not have a good season but we had a great time cheering them on to…a victory? However, I think it was 1947 that Colby upset a Bates team that had played in the “Glass Bowl” the preceding year. The post-game celebration was really fun with an impromptu parade through downtown Waterville. * Start thinking about writing to me for the edition of Colby Magazine that will follow the one you’re now reading. Thank you!
