SENIOR MIDDLE YEAR Sc. 1 Election of Officers in Abbot Hall We enter the new year rather timidly, feeling awed by the presence of the dignified and original Seniors. Sc 2 Hockey Game with the Seniors Enthusiasm and pride exhibited as we led our girls to battle, although we brought them back with a tied score. Singing rather weak, lacking the confidence that the Seniors had. Sc. 3 Senior-Mid Play Comments left to be made by those who saw it. Sc. 4 Banquet Hilarious excitement! It was the first thing that really brought the class together as a whole and it was also the first class banquet that Miss Bailey had attended at the school, and we felt highly honored. 23 S( . 5 Introduction to the " Senior Parlor " The Seniors welcome us into the " Senior Parlor. " It was at that moment, and during all the Commencement Exercises, that it swept over us that the Seniors were going: those girls who had helped and encouraged us all that year, and inspired in us real Abbot spirit. We had to brace our shoulders against that fact, however, and live up to the traditions they had given us. ACT II. OUR GLORIOUS SENIOR YEAR! It came upon us before we knew it. and now it is almost gone, we know not where. . 1 Election of Officers It was a joyous meeting, our first one. and after we had elected our officers we tried to plan all that we wanted to crowd into one short year and what that year would mean to each one of us. We arranged a series of teas for the new girls, to show them the Senior Parlor and the fine victrola. for which we thank 1913 and wish that they could realize all the pleasure it has given the whole school this year. Our class rings came early in the fall and we were very much pleased with them. Sc. 2 Frolics: — Although the day for the straw-ride was rather gloomy, it did not dampen our spirits as we drove over to Mrs. Boutwell ' s barn, where we had a great deal of fun. It has been the wish of every Senior to keep the class as united as possible, so we have had several gatherings during the year around the fire in the Senior Parlor, where we have toasted marshmallows and sung our songs, or else we have all come together for a chafing-dish supper. These have added much to the year ' s happiness! Sc. 3 Intervale — Four Days of Fun! It will always be a disputed statement, whether our class had the best time, or 1913, the first class to enjoy this privilege. Of course we each have our opinion on the subject. May 1915 have just as good a time, and better, if that is possible. 24 Sc. 4 Senior Play This scene required much hard work and the denial of many good times, but we were glad to do it for the school and for our class. We gave " The Winter ' s Tale. " Sc. 5 Spring Term and Commencement Is it possible that this is our last term of school-life at Abbot Academy ' i It grows harder to realize it every day, now that the end is so near. When our Senior Banquet is over and the Commencement Exercises are through, we will go out to take our places in this big, interesting world, with our hearts and minds made broader, more sympathetic and intelligent by their contact with this school, its teachers, and pupils. We can never forget the happy days spent here, and may we ever strive to " live in the large " and be loyal daughters to our Alma Mater and the Class of 1914. 25 The day has come when we depart. Stand free from all that ' s gone before, When each of us goes out alone. And trembling knocks at Life ' s great door. And lest we be forgotten quite. When we have travelled far away. We leave behind a birch-tree white. In sacred memorv of this day. Oh. little tree, so small, so thin. May ' st thou grow tall and straight in form. And may ' st thou stand for many years And long endure both wind and storm ! Oh, may we straight and steadfast grow. And learn, alone, to fill, like thee. The place that Fate shall make for us, And sail, victorious, Life ' s rough sea! — E.

They are strangely like the girls, Their hair is plastered down so slick, Yet round the edge it curls. And maybe if you look quite close You ' ll see that their back hair Goes down below their collars, Or perhaps is twisted there. Then, too, their feet are very small, And shod in English cut, And their hands are always soft and white, And free from stain or smut. Their tones are low and musical, Yet ' twould hardly be the case That one of them could win a prize For skill in singing bass. 37 But any such deficiency, They make up in their ties, The colors are so bright and gay The styles so very nice. In fact, thei r clothes, these men of ours, Are very up-to-date, Their suits look like their brothers ' The models just as late. Exclusiveness marks all our boys, Notoriety they fear, They scorn the day-time function, And at eventide appear. We ' ll ne ' er forget those boys of ours. They ' re the nicest ones we know, And to find out their equals We ' ve very far to go. L. L. 38 " Cfje ©erm " Beware the German measles! They ' re really dangerous, dear!

She said that for her part she just loved those cavalry cloaks, but some people preferred khaki. The Young Lady Across the Way heard that they were going to forbid spreads at Abbot and after thinking it over she said that of course spreads were all right but that for her part she thought after all comforters were warmer. I asked the Young Lady Across the Way, after she had returned from a visit to Abbot, if she had heard any of the serenades of the Phillips students. She said that she did go to the Inquiry Social, but that for her part she always found the syllables hard to guess. The Young Lady Across the Way was asked if she approved of Student Government in boarding schools. She replied that for her part she thought it was w ise to give the news, but she didn ' t believe in some of President Wilson ' s theories. I asked the Young Lady Across the Way whether she thought the period of isolation for scarlet fever was unreasonably long, and she said that for her part she thought vaccination was a great safeguard but some people preferred to have it young. 48 (But 9lrt (gallery D ance of the Nymphs Prudence The Broken Pitcher Mona Lisa Age of Innocence The Helping Hand The Sewing School Song of the Lark " Wake Up " Aurora School of Vestals The Sowers (Sewers) E.
