Carmichael ' 06 jforeiDort) WE who have edited this book have thought to thank you who have helped us, and to appeal to the interest of you who will read. We do thank you, we do appeal to your interest and fellowship ; but when we attempt to measure our gratitude — to tell you definitely whom we have to thank, and for what, we find the task too hard for us. It is not we of nineteen five alone, it is not only you who are in Abbot now, in whose hands the production of this book has lain : as we ourselves have been influenced by the generations before us, so this Class Book of ours is a product of the years and the classes that have gone before. We who owe so much to the history and the traditions of this school of ours must acknowledge this debt too — that in our Class Book, as in all else, we have drawn, unconsciously and inevitably, help and guidance and inspiration from the lives that have been lived in these halls before us. Not to us only, not alone to you who are our teachers and our schoolmates and our friends, does this book belong. A token to you it certainly is, but it is none the less surely a tribute to the classes that have been, and a hope for the classes that shall come. The Class of Nineteen Five.

Our Senior Mid. spread was our first gathering, when we felt ourselves a class and bound together by class spirit. But with the beginning of the Senior year began the struggle for supremacy. The competition for the Indoor Meet and Field Day was carried on with the Senior Middlers in friendly rivalry. After an exciting combat the Senior Class won. Early in the year we gave our Senior Reception, which made us feel the dignity of our position and that we were a very important factor at Abbot. The Senior Play caused us much hard work and the denial of many hours of outdoor recreation and indoor amusement, but brought with it the greatest success and satisfaction. The Seniors ' Banquet showed our class spirit and unity. It was good fun, as well as the most important affair of the year. As a crowning event the Trustees intend to give a party for the Seniors, to which we look forward with lively interest and appreciation Our days at Abbot are nearly over, and they have been days of great pleasure. As we look back over them we see that they were more than pleasure, because we know that what we have learned will help us in that real life which we have only begun, because, after all, it is " Ad vitam non ad scholam hoc discimus. " Lila Mae Shirkie. 12 Boofitng QJJacfixoarfc anl jjforxoarb IT is good for us to look backward over the seventy-five years since Abbot Academy was founded, and to realize that we are about to join the number of splendid women who have graduated before us, and that our love and enthusiasm for Abbot will be united to their constancy. Through the years there have, of course, been many changes, but the Abbot spirit will never change ! Looking back over the past we see that we have had many advantages which former classes did not know. The McKeen Memorial has been a source of great enjoyment, with the finely equipped gymnasium, the stage where the day scholars and seniors gave their plays, and the Day Scholars ' Room which made such a splendid " Green Room " for our dramatics. Then there is, last but not least, our Senior Room, bright and sunny, where we conquered our fears of Psychology. It is, undoubtedly, so steeped in the excellency of the class of nineteen hundred and five that the following classes will absorb great inspiration from it. But it is as well to look forward as backward when there is so much to look forward to. The pleasures taken in our new building have just begun, and then we have hopes of an Art Museum soon to be built upon the Circle. Surely there are glowing prospects for the girls who are to come, and we hope that they will have as many good times and love Abbot as heartily as the class of nineteen hundred and five.

Chorus — So they love thee, dear old Abbot, So thy memory they bless, Thro ' the world a band of women Abbot ' s fellowship confess. When they ' ve said good-bye to Abbot, When they ' ve done with days of school, Still thine influence shall guide them, All their lives thy spirit rule. But we who are Abbot girls today, With all our lives before us, All deeper meanings put far away From the banner floating o ' er us. The message to us of the Abbot blue, Our school girl eyes discerning, Is of rare good times and friendships true, Things that are worth the learning. 26 Chorus — So we love thee, dear old Abbot, So the Abbot blue we bless, In thy halls a band of school-girls Abbot ' s fellowship confess. Yet we know that when we leave thee, When we ' ve done with days of school, Still thine influence shall guide us, All our lives thy spirit rule. Vet, ' neath the fun and the rare good times, ' Neath all our girlish dreaming, Lies — and we think of it of t-times — A hint of a deeper meaning. Dimly a myst ' ry we understand, Half blindly drawing near it, That ' neath our love for it all must stand The worth of the Abbot spirit. Chorus — So we love thee, dear old Abbot, So the thought of thee we bless, All our lives shall we together Abbot ' s fellowship confess.

Take up the Seniors ' burden — The toil ye dare not shirk — Fill all your hours with labor, Learn what it is to work ! Learn this as we have learned it, O check your longings wild ! O new-made, fluttered Seniors, Half woman ? No, all child ! Take up the Seniors ' burden — In patience to abide, To veil desires for power, And check the show of pride. Give to the College Seniors The honors ye prize most, Nor speak too much of Ethics, Lest people think ye boast ! Take up the Seniors ' burden — No tawdry life of ease, But toil of weary student, And dread of direful E ' s. Worse than the themes that try you, Worse than Church History, Before you stands the spectre Of James ' Psychology ! 28 Take up the Seniors ' burden — Ye may not stoop to less, Nor call too loud on Privilege To cloak your weariness. Still shall there be to guide you Those same rules ye have known, — Ye may not e ' en go driving Without a chaperon ! Take up the Seniors ' burden — Our senior days are o ' er, Because we must, we give you What we may keep no more. Yet come, to prove you Seniors, Strange things of dreadful sorts, From Faculty relentless, The marks on your reports ! M. K. W. 29 $0j cMogg O the Seniors ' world is a world of strife And weariness for us all, For we ' ve said farewell to the simple life, Forever farewell to the simple life, And to all its tasks so small. We have entered upon the life complex, We must study our insides, Strange Latin names must our tired brains vex, And knowledge abstruse must our tired brains vex, And wear us out, besides. Our Psychology lessons we all must know, We must throw away other aims, And all that is easy in life must go, And all that is happy in life must go, And may leave — only William James. M. K.
