To care for your boys we have thirteen senior councilors supplemented by ten councilors-in-training. There are only five of this group new to Hyde Bay.

Mr. and Mrs. Dick Carlton are returning for their fifth year along with Scott, our head UL and Susan. Dick is Assistant Director, and a very able one. Mrs. Canton is our storekeeper and laundry lady. During the winter Dick teaches the sciences in the Bridgewater—Raritan High School in Raritan, N.J.

Mr. and Mrs. Hunt Hilliard start their third season at Hyde Bay along with Mike, a camper this year, and Diedre. Hunt will again head up the crafts program along with assisting on many other vital parts of camp. His winters are spent teaching at Gilman School in Baltimore.

Mr. and Mrs. Barclay Feather are new at Hyde Bay and a very welcome addition. Their son, Robbie, is a camper and Mary resides in the cabin with her parents. Barc is our head councilor this year and will share in the responsibilities of the running of the camp. He is head of the history department at Milton Academy in Milton, Mass, during the winter.

Doug Coupe, who enters Springfield College in Mass, this September, will head up our trip program and will be coach of the varsity baseball team. His colleague in both activities will be Jock McQuilkin, a sophomore at
