To the Editor:

If your innards could stand drinking until past 1:30 a.m., a sure return home port from Bennett College, Smith, et. al., the Yankee Doodle could put lining on your belly round the clock with its iconic pig-in-the-blanket, getting you home and allowing you to crawl out of bed the next aft. She was our American ambience — really greasy fries, a slightly burned dog, and super hot coffee to sizzle you until you made it back to your college. Conversation was unrecorded, yet all the world’s problems were laid out and resolved — the biggest being how to get the hottest date at Bennett.
