     I was Extremely surprised, but

very thrilled, to learn today that

I’ve received the $100 Elisha Parmele

Scholarship for the 1944-1945 Session

at W&M. It’s awarded so they say

to the highest ranking member of

the Junior class taking an AB

degree. It’s especially thrilling since

I didn’t work for it, and actually

had no idea I was in line for any-

thing like that. The honor is quite

wonderful. I must have a fairy

godmother lurking in the shadows!

     I met Mother and Dad for

dinner at the New Yorker to celebrate.
