In years gone by, we ' ve tried to hold The strong, straight course thou ' st led; In years to come, we ' ll still be true To thee, our Pilot-head. With loving, saddened hearts today, We plant this young spruce tree, Through future years to symbolize Unchanging constancy. In wind and storm may it grow strong And learn to love the fight, And so may we life ' s challenge meet And " dare be true " to the right. The passer-by, beneath our tree, Its restful shade will find. So may our lives b road shadows cast, To shelter wronged mankind. Oh Alma Mater, fare thee well, With courage we depart, To fill our place whate ' er it be, Thy love within each heart. H. D. 25 Class f tstorp Early in September we, the class of nineteen hundred and thirteen, elected the officers for our Senior Middle year. We had a very successful year in spite of the fact that we felt as if we had the burdens of the school upon our shoulders. Our Senior Middle banquet and play were undoubtedly the most important events of the year. The most impressive occasion, which touched the heart of every Middler. was our first invitation into the Senior Parlor after the Seniors ' banquet. We then began to realize our responsibilities for the coming year and wished that we could be as successful as the class of 1912. The next time our class met together was early in September in the Senior Parlor, to elect our officers, and we made an attempt to find a motto — but as we were unsuccessful we decided that our theory must have been " Better late than never, " as we have just accomplished that task. Of course we felt our responsibilities at the opening of the Senior year. Our minds were filled with dread at the thought of taking Psychology, Ethics, and Theism. As we look back, we hope that, whatever we may have failed to grasp in the wide range of the Philosophy course we have at least learned that the successful road towards happiness lies in the doing of the greatest amount of good for others. Early in October we went on a straw ride to the North Andover Country Club and there we had a very enjoyable time. Shortly after Christmas vacation, came the Senior dance for the Senior Middlers 26 and friends. Miss Bailey gave ns a delightful tea in her rooms the afternoon before the dance. Our greatest enthusiasm and excitement was shown when Miss Bailey told us she had planned a midwinter vacation trip for us at Intervale, New Hampshire. Our pleasure in all the winter sports was increased many fold by the proud feeling that we were the first Abbot Senior class that had ever had a midwinter holiday! It was at Intervale that we learned that we needed no tonic for our appetites. Our Senior play has caused us much hard work and denial of many hours of outdoor exercise, but we hope that its success was worth our labor. We shall have our banquet early in June which will be one of our last meetings as a class. The year is fast coming to a close and it is with sorrow that I write of it. The sad part of it is that no matter how many times we come back to our Alma Mater things can never be the same. We make our farewells regretfully, wishing that all the classes to come may feel that they are the heirs of all that Abbot has been, and that they have a part in all that she is to be. O. M.

Doubt- less they ma} 7 look far better on the friend. This will please the owner and show the dress off to good advantage. 2nd If your friend has a good looking diamond ring, why hesitate to ask her to lend it to you for a few days? Never mind if it is an engagement ring. Wouldn ' t a friend be glad to lend anything to a friend? 3rd What if you need a hat to match your dress and your neighbor has " just what you want " ? Of course borrow it. What if it is a rainy day? Someone will lend you an umbrella to protect it. (Doubtless someone has yours). 4th You are invited to a dance unexpectedly and " you haven ' t a thing " to wear. Your best friend has a new Paris dress — but she is away — . Go right in and get it. She wouldn ' t care even if she has never worn it herself. Just one evening ' s wear won ' t hurt it. 5th As for stamps, silk, needles, thread, ribbon, collars, ties, handker- chiefs, pins, candy, crackers, spoons, cups, plates, soap, paper, pencils, pens, magazines, twenty-five or (fifty cents ,and such trifles, take them at anytime and think no more about it. They are too small to return. So, girls, if you live in this way, your free and easy manner will charm all and you will be welcomed anywhere. 39 Miss Wilkins (Geology class): " What follows the ice stream? " B. S.

" Miss Chickering Notice (to all who may be interested) : " Little Trix " is as able to take care of dogs (if they come by the string) as her sister was before her. We might add that this is the only kind of dogs she seems fond of. 45 aftbot Courant Alumnae Notes, 1919 Edna Francis and Edith Wade have both hung out their shingles as professional basketball coaches. Both girls were noted for their skill in this active female sport while members of this school in ' 13. Some very good articles have been appearing lately in the Good Housekeeping Magazine and the writer is an old Abbot girl — Hazel Smith. At last Abbot has produced a famous actress. Charlotte Amsden is starring in the Vermont Stock Company as " Sleeping Beauty. " The critics make one comment only - " Miss Amsden is still unable to control her violent sneezing. " The illustrious Olga Marie Erickson is still as fond of music as of yore, so having captured a drummer, she is now very busy leading a baker band. Beatrice Fairfax at last has an able helper in the person of Marion Gould. Miss Gould received her training in her several years as resi- dent in Abbot Academy. Our beloved schoolmate, Marion Martin, famous for fainting and all such ladylike accomplishments, has bravely cast aside these attract- ive yet frivolous charms and has become head of a large hospital. Ethel Rand has at last started to begin to commence to do life ' s work converting the heathen on Mouse Isle. Her classmates will appreciate her sacrifice when they realize that the isle received its name from its overrun condition by those animals known as the terror of women. 46 Our little golden-haired maid, Mary Helen Boyd, has opened a tlorist shop in Andover, running in competition with Mrs. Playdon. White roses, the emblem of maidenly purity, are the main product. A very interesting book entitled " To choose or not to choose, " or " B - B - G -, " has lately been published. This book discusses the merits, charms, and accomplishments of three interesting personalities. The authoress is Miss Crittenden. A noble cause has at last been espoused by a noble woman. Helen Danforth will fight for the Y. W. C. A. movement in Chicago, Germany, and Andover. Jane Newton is very energetically aiding Mr. Thompson-Seton in perfecting the plans of the Boy Scout movement in America. Enough said. Playing heroine with the Warren Carrigan Film Co. Inc. is an old Abbot girl, Helen Hersey. Although very quiet while here, her life is now one of motion. Marion Parshley is leading a useful literary existence which may puzzle her friends until they learn that she is contributing humorous selections to Life. A matter of great interest has been brought before the eyes of the public in the discovery of a method of talking exclusively with the eyes. Miss Day claims that its chief excellence lies in the fact that it saves the voice. Katherine Toye is very busy writing an improved Virgil translation for the use of future students of this interesting novel. Mary Peters is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Company. She is making a great success plaving in the role of " Walther " in " Wilhelm Tell. " 47 We have one sad report. Esther Pickles, after a brilliant career at college has disappointed all her classmates by quietly settling down and marrying a mere man. Isn ' t it interesting to note that Alice Harsh is at the head of an Inquiry Bureau. She received excellent practice in this art while a " stude " at the " fem-sem. " Mary Erving is superintending the new Andover Jewelry Store which is a branch of Tiffany ' s: Engagement rings are to be the specialty. Louise Coe, after many years of meditation and careful considera- tion, has at last consented to publish her revised edition of the Laws of Gravitation, in a book dedicated to her former teacher, Miss Nellie Mason. Our Dorothy Perkins rose three months hence to rival Mrs. Pank- hurst in valiantly advancing the noble cause of " Woman ' s Suffrage. " It is noticed that her chief conversions are among the opposite sex. Margaret Wilkins is still attempting to make the district around Mount Washington a second Switzerland for winter sports, Skiing being the most attractive feature. P. S. — H. D. spends her " long " here. Margaret Keane is planning to spend a charming summer as a guest of Frau Cramer. There is even a photographer, Enid Baush, in the celebrated class of ' 13. The inspiration came to her while at Abbot Academy, — how, I cannot tell. Her proofs are said to be excellent, but as yet have not been on public exhibition, due to the artist ' s shy nature. 48 tat is t its NAME O. Erickson H. Danforth M. WlLKINS E. Baush M. Martin D.

Changes In former years the teachers heard A most familiar plea, For when a girl was late to class, The hell rang early, you see. But with the electric clock in charge, That excuse is out of date; For if a perfect lady is slow Whom can she blame — but Fate? By social group rules we tried to live, We could not do as we would, But always tried our best to act As — " we of a family " should. Our group is wider now we find, From rules we ' ll never be free; We walk and talk as ladies should, We — " a community. " H. D. H. D. 50 (flpolofliej to St v. iftiplinfl) When every mid-year was written We said farewell to dull care, Met Mr. Seth Bassett and hied away To Intervale ' s mountain air. There we rested (and faith, we did need it,) For Rex was the man of all work. It was ice water here and hot water there, He certainly worked like a Turk. At the Bellivue we all were happy, Had the winter sports without end. We skied and we skated and snowshoed, Were so stiff we could hardly bend. Every bump, every bruise we acquired, From many and many a fall, Were on exhibition each evening — We were proud of them one and all. 51 There was no one there to sting us, And no one there to blame. We had no bells for breakfast, But we got there just the same. And now just a word to the Middlers — Pass your mid-years without fail, And next year when you are Seniors, Give our love to old Intervale. H. D. Oh, the way we spend our money It kind of strikes me funny, But by it comes the " ad, " So why should we be sad. J. N. 52 fRlOftV MIGHT Oh, you girls, Oh, you girls, With your straight hair that curls Whenever occasions demand; Each girl is so sweet, And each one looks so neat, Awaiting the Friday night " man. " He ' s a lad of sixteen As you doubtless have seen, But still he is bolder than brass; So he waits straight and tall, For his own baby doll, Entreating the moments to pass. 53 And the bell it will ring, And the maid she will bring Some cards to a very choice few. Each girl rushes in, The Alcove to win — What a shame that there couldn ' t be two! This half hour of bliss Not a maiden would miss, For isn ' t that plenty of time For him to tell you He ' ll always be true? Sufficient — I ' ve finished this rhvme. appreciation of Crtr ' s otcboofe Oh you notebooks, What would we do When exam, time comes If it weren ' t for you? We may laugh at your length And your minute detail. But when exam, time comes We know you ' ll not fail. M. M. 54 afternoon Brtgatoe Half a block, half a block, Half a block onward, All trudging down the street, A good half hundred. " Forward the Abbot Brigade ! Rush for the feed ! " she said. Into the department of food Strode the half hundred. " Forward the Abbot Brigade! " Was there a girl dismayed? Not though the stoutest knew She ' d gain a pound or two. Hers not to make reply, Hers not to reason why, Hers but to eat and sigh. Into the unwholesome food Dove the half hundred. Cake to right of them, Cake to left of them, Cake to front of them Beckoned and tempted; Urged on by cake so swell, Boldly they ate and well, Into their jaws it fell, Into their mouths quite well, Foolish half hundred. 55 J. N. l ljpmc Sing a song of ices And I ' ll tell yon where to go — Either to the Tea Room Or else to Mr. Lowe. Blessed be the candle That ever gives ns light. Regardless of electricity It burns through all the night. Speaking of mottos for the Senior class — " Do it now. " Popular, beyond comprehension Used more than dreamed of Cosy, as could be expected Yet silent with all its secrets. — The Alcove Brooksie has a conscience, Its influence is strong; For everywhere that Brooksie goes, That conscience trots along. Alice had a Billy-boy. With measles he came down, So Abbot had no gentlemen When Friday night came ' ronn ' . Martin and Perk went on a strike, And ate no thing at all, Till Perk nearly died, And down town hied, And said she ' d be eating till Fall. 56 attotce to Mentor jftititiiers Next year you ' ll study Ethics, Six hundred pages or so, And after you have finished The following things you ' ll know. Work for the good of others, Think not at all of self, Try to make others happy For your end do not take wealth. Always make your actions Those that could be laws, Never talk of persons Unless you have just cause. Never seek for happiness, Never strive for gain, Always look above this Your better self to train. However, Senior Middlers, Read your Ethics book all through, For besides these points I ' ve given You ' ll find some that are new. M. M. 57 a ££orti to tt Wist (?) Seek to profit by the example of 1913. Earn as good a reputation as ours for yourselves, if possible. Notice carefully the many points in which we excel. Imitate them successfully and your social standing is assured. Onward and upward toward 1913 ' s standard should be your motto; Remember that you can aim no higher. Many drawbacks will probably block your path. Immense obstacles must undoubtedly be overcome Discouragment you may meet more than once; Do not, however, ever abandon your high aims. Let this example be always in your minds. Even when you think you have surely failed, keep trying; Reward worth a great struggle will finally be yours. Success will mean that you have learned to remember your dickies, and not to chew gum, or eat on the street. 58 Cable JHanners to be a opitrj at abbot The bell will ring twice when the meal is ready. This does not mean yon must hurry. Continue your toilet in a leisurely fashion and when ready go to the tower. If the elevator is not working, slide down the bannisters. This hasty descent may slightly disarrange your costume but do not hesitate to arrange it after entering the room as this is considered good form in all public places. Hurry to be the first one seated and then attend only to the work at hand. As the time is short and the chief reason for coming to the dining room is to eat, and the secondary reason to improve conversa- tional ability, it is well to do both at the same time. Choose your topics carefully and with regard to the company. While some may be in- terested in nature, we must remember that all are not. In a large school, laundry is always a troublesome item. It is therefore considerate to aid the laundress by spilling a glass or two of water on the table cloth. When you do not like the food set before you express your ideas in loud tones. This will probably make everyone dissatisfied with the food and will help to make the meal pleasant. Never pay attention when those at the head of the table are serving. This gives people the impression that you are greedy. Eat as fast as possible, for although we have never known the food to give out, we never can tell when it may and don ' t wish to get left. The table is the place to give a detailed history of your family ' s doings. Omit no detail, and dwell especially upon the unpleasant parts. When through, fold your napkin and look around in a bored way. This will apprise others of the fact that you are through, and if they are considerate, they will stop eating immediately. Leave the dining-room as noisily as possible, for if you are quiet you will be considered depressed, and others will think you have not enjoyed the meal. jy|, jyf. 59 jfatrfajr My dear Miss Fairfax, I am greatly worried, and I want to ask your advice. I will tell you about my case. I am twenty-one, and for several years I have been engaged to a young man, a few years my senior, who graduated from Law School last year and has an automobile. My parents are very fond of him, and his parents, too, are perfectly willing for us to marry. Soon he will be making enough so that money need not hinder us. There is no obstacle in our way, and that is what terrifies me. I have always heard that " the path of true love never runs smooth, " and I fear that ours cannot be true love since it runs so easily on. What shall I do? Help me, dear Miss Fairfax. I am, gratefully yours, . . H S. Reply My dear, I do not wonder that such a situation as yours causes you much worry and anxiety; it is indeed a serious one. I have a suggestion which may help you out. Why not quarrel a little with him? It would be an easy matter to quarrel in a sweet way, and rouse his anger very gently. You can easily control him, and this would keep your " path of love " from being too smooth. Dear Miss Fairfax, I am in a most peculiar position. I have three eligible suit- ors, all young and charming. I am unable to choose between them because they all have the same name; George. I lie awake until late every night, thinking about it; how am I to choose? Anxiously, C. Reply Why, my dear, your problem seems to me comparatively simple. Choose the last name which best suits you. Of course you could not be happy with a man whose name did not appeal to you, so seek happiness with him whose last name is pleasant in your ears. fto CJ)e istutient Council The Student Council of Abbot Academy was formed in 1911. It is made up of representative girls of the school and strives to keep up the good reputation of Abbot in all ways. This holds for matters both outside and inside the school, but does not affect the keeping of study hours, tardinesses, spreads, etc. The student body gives its word to report to the Council any actions of any girl, or group of girls, that are bad for the school. In this way the matter is quietly settled. 61 %Mm L STUDENT COUNCIL Olga Erickson HlLDEGARDE GlTTEGSON Ethe l Rand Marion Gould Frances Jones Jane Newton Mildred Home Cornelia Crittenden Charlotte Amsden Dorothy Perkins Helen Burke President Secretary COURAXT BOARD Literary Editors Dorothy Perkins Barbara Hadley Elizabeth Bartlett Mary Sweeney Helen Danforth Ruth Jenkins Business Editors Margaret Wilkin s Mildred Horne A.

By the advice of Miss Bailey a committee was chosen to draw up a constitution, which was afterwards voted upon and adopted by the girls of the school. This constitution will help, it is hoped, to meet all the needs of the athletic side of Abbot. 68 WW I tf HOCKEY TEAM Phyllis Brooks, Captain E. Allen D. Perkins H. Hamblet E. Parks E. Sheldon K.
