The driving colors never at a stay Run here and there, and flush And fade away " X X October, nine- teen six, we, the class of nineteen hundred and eight, elected the officers for our Senior - Middl e year. We were proud of our class, in the first place, for their good acting in the play, " Who ' s to Win Him. " Later on, in March, we showed our spirit at our class spread. All winter we worked hard at athletics and in the spring, though we lost in the Indoor Meet, we had the crowning triumph of beating the seniors on Field Daw We did not feel apart, however, from the seniors because of this pleasant rivalry and we worked and ushered our best for them at their play. When the spade was handed to our president at the close of the year we had a feeling of the coming importance tor our class, though we hated to see the old class leave. •9 When we gathered together again in the following September, this time in the Senior Parlor, we found that our numbers had diminished from twenty-five to nineteen, in spite of which fact we are the largest class in a number of years. We elected our officers for our Senior year and talked over the things that we could do to show what a wonderful and original class we were. Our first inspiration drew our class nearer together. We had a jolly straw-ride to Haggetts Pond. Up to Christmas vacation our work kept us very busy, but in January we started up again with new ideas. We had a moonlight skating party on Foster ' s Pond and a theatre party over in Lawrence. We gave a very successful tea to the faculty, but our great idea of the first of the year was our dance. Instead of the regular Senior Reception we gave the school a dance after the Senior Middle play Later, in February, we gave a dance ourselves. Until the Spring vacation we were very busy on our play, Shakespeare ' s " The Tempest " , but we did not mind the hard work or the giving up of the bright afternoons when everyone thought it was such a great success. We won in the Indoor Meet and on Field Day, dressed to represent our class flower, the daisy, we again won, though not until after a hard struggle. On May 19, the Trustees and the Principal gave us a very enjoyable time at a dance 20 Miss Mason and Miss Kelsey gave us a picnic at Alderbrook Farm, and on May 26 we had a delightful time at the home of one of our number in Winchester. We are looking forward to our class supper and the many things we have still to do. Then comes Commencement and then the World, but we are all sure that, with such a training as our Alma Mater has given us, we shall be ready for it ; and we are even more sure that through the years our class motto, " Unity and Ambition " , will still hold us as it has during our life in the class of nineteen hundred and eight.

Sh ! " Ladies — it will be a great pleasure to escort you around to see the rooms of our most illustrious class of 1908. This way first, if you please. That noise is all right — it is the usual thine in these rooms. We will stand in the doorway a moment — as there seem to be about as many as could get in all rea ly accommodated. That large girl who is the centre of the group is Edith Gutterson. She is quite an old story at Abbot — but is always ready to do her full share of work or entertainment and that at a moment ' s notice. The girl at your right, trying hard to read " John Percyfield " in the noise is Mary Howell. She is, with out exception the greatest reader in school. See — even now she is putting that up to go down in the reading room to find out how the hats are to be worn next fall. Xow, if you will follow me down this corridor to the stairs, yes. they are pretty steep — well, we ' re up at last. Here is a room which has a great many advantages. Oh ! They ' re both out. Florence Blystone ' s the only Senior who occupies this room. The chief beauty of it, is that a teacher rooms directly across the hall — so that they never have any difficulty in getting permissions and excuses — except, of course, in study hours. Straight up the hall, ladies, no — this door. This is Katharine Raymond ' s room. She isn ' t here either, but we will probably see her later. Yes, this is a very nice sunny little room and if Katharine would only stay here it would be more useful — as it is, she sleeps here, and it is convenient for that. Yes, if you please — straight ahead — now. this way; here are the rooms of .two very influential members of the class. Dorothy Taylor, the president, is not here this minute — she is probably consulting Miss Means about some wild scheme such as having school close a week earlier for the Seniors than for the rest of the school or the probability of the 62 trustees giving the Seniors a dance every other Friday night throughout the year. But Marion Allehin. the great basketball player — yes — manager of the team — and president of the V. W. C. A., you know, will be very glad to receive you, I ' m sure. Won ' t you step in? You see they have a very fine view from these windows — especially from the front one, where they have the double advantage of being able to see the expressman as he come- in, and the top of the girls ' heads as they walk around the circle. Well, perhaps we had letter not stop any longer. This room here is very nice — Esther Parker is the only occu- pant at present — her room-mate is out sewing somewhere. Esther i- making bra- ' - candle shades and blacking her shoes at the same time although it is long past time for her to be dressing for dinner. However she will get down after a while — not irry late. I don ' t be- lieve we will venture in across the way — Esther Stickney and Thirza Gay are having a party. Beg pardon ? I can ' t hear. Xo, the noise is not unusual — but it is startling, i- it not? Xext door rooms are also vacant — Isabella Seaton and her room mate are apparently at the party — but — well, if here aren ' t their neckties. No, they aren ' t finished yet. but they will be sometime. P ack again across the hall — Marion Towle is executing a skirt dance for the benefit i everyone in general and no one in particular. Her room mate is out. That desk is where -he sits and writes letters and the bunk by the window is where she lie- when she read- her ten daily ones. And now if you will step down the hall a little way we will come to the bay window room. Ah girls! don ' t get up you see. ladies, this bunk is a favorite lookout — yes, I thought we should find Katharine Raymond here, the little one over there in the corner. This room really is (iertrude Caunt ' s — but there are always a good many girls in here to see her. What does she do? Why, she has a great deal to do to keep track of Katharine — and then, besides, she has to see what everyone wears who goes by — either on the circle or in the street, and that takes quite a while, you know. Well — we won ' t disturb them any more. Xext door are the rooms of the famous Marys, Mary Cheney and Mary Elliott. There they are in the window but they are too busy to notice us, they really mustn ' t have their attention taken from the street. 63 Now if you will come up these stairs and turn down the hall to your right — there, yes — the left hand door — this is Mary deWindt ' s room. How do you do, Mary? Yes, cer- tainly go right on — puffs are hard to get on just right. You say your roommate is not there? May we just step into her room? Thank you — I just want to show these ladies the books. She says she knows them all through and through — it doesn ' t seem possible does it? but then, you can believe almost anything which Katharine Wurster says — blushing so divinely. The next room, ladies, I ' m sorry to see, has a sign on it " Please do not disturb - — asleep. " Yes, Jean Dascomb usually is asleep to all the world but a few chosen friends. I ' m sorry though— as I would like to show you her pretty room. This next nice corner room is Frances Skolfield ' s. What ! No one here — that is un- usual — Frances very seldom leaves her room except at stated intervals for recitations. This last little room belongs to Winifred Ogden, the Class Baby. I ' m sure she must have been put to bed long ago — so we won ' t disturb her slumbers. Why not at all — it was a pleasure. Good afternoon, ladies. " W. O.
