MARION WINKLEBLECK Chicago, III. 14 Class tstorp of 1915 It was with great awe that we took our places in Abbot Hall to hold our first class meeting to elect officers for our Senior-Middle year. It was hard to realize that we were at last a real class and having the privilege of voting, but when the meeting was adjourned we felt capable of conquering worlds. The most important events of the year were the play, which from our point of view was a success, and the class banquet, which was really the first time we were all together as a class. It gave us a feeling of union and made us realize just what it meant to be loyal members of the class of nineteen fifteen. The year was brought to a close by the gift of the Senior Parlor, on which occasion we for the first time received a sense of the significance and the deep solemnity of the Senior year. At the beginning of the year we immediately began to make use of the luxury of the newly-decorated Senior Parlor, in which our class meeting for election of officers was held. The next landmark of this memorable year was the never-to-be-forgotten Senior Picnic. After a wonderful spread a very select entertainment was furnished by members of the class, and a fitting close to a glorious lark was the moonlight and tuneful ride back to school. The time between this and mid-years was filled with good, hard work, but we received our adequate reward in the four days ' outing at Intervale in the White Mountains, which we have since relived many times and the memory of which will never cease to be an inexhaustible source of enjoyment. 15 Our Senior year has not been all smooth sailing. Our trials and tribulations came in ample quantity while rehearsing for the Senior play; however, the memory of the unpleasant past has been banished by the memory of the unexpected and overwhelming success which attended the final production. As the year approaches its close we stand for a moment and contemplate with grateful hearts all that we have gained and achieved in the time that we have spent at Abbot. There are a few more events before our year is concluded and then we go out in the " wide, wide world " ' , where we hope to make use of all that we have gained, and abide by the standards of our Alma Mater. May we all live up to our motto : " Be your best that you may give your best to a world that needs you. " 16 -fMt QMQ 4 i£?S If we have chosen to root you Up from the forest ' s heart, If Ave have elected to set you Here in a place apart. Think not, little tree, we lacked purpose- One we have had from the start. We wanted to make you the guardian Of all we have learned to hold dear; For to-day we must fare forth from Abbot, The school we have loved through the year, Loved with a love growing stronger As we felt separation was near. As dryads of old were embodied In trees, and sweet spirits in streams, The spirit of ' 15 we leave you, Little Spruce, when the moon ' s misty beams Or the sun ' s shimmering rays rest upon you, May we trust you to cherish our dreams!- ' Catherine C. Leach 17 Abbot Academy Andover. Massachusetts June, 19 5 Dearest Mattie: Such an inspiring time of year to be in Switzerland! You must be enjoying the gorgeous scenery immensely — and getting many sketches for the picture which you have long prom- ised us. We surely are proud of our famous lady — you do 1915 great honor — yes. you do; I can almost see that modest, self-deprecatory nod — but you know it ' s true. But now to tell you of the reunion — commencement, and how we missed you. Shall I tell you what everyone ' s doing first? Yes. you say? Very well. I suppose it would be a wise plan to begin with " String " — our lady president. My dear! You ' d never know her. She ' s grown very large and imposing-looking — a little awe-inspiring as of old. You know she ' s quite a society queen now — dances for all the smart charity affairs, and is a noted horse- woman, and they say she is going to marry a titled foreigner, but that of course is only hearsay. Such a startling entrance was made by " Mikey " Hamblet! We were sauntering slowly round the circle, when we heard a tremendous buzzing, and " Mikey " alighted from the sportiest monoplane that ' s been seen around here for a good while — quite characteristic of her? In the midst of all the excitement, a tall lady swathed in multitudinous veils entered. On her ankles and arms were jingling bangles, and a heavy, mysterious odor emanated from her garments. We didn ' t know whether we were being honored by the presence of a Hindu princess or whether it was merely a gypsy fortune-teller. While we were gazing m wonder, the vision let fall her mantle, and a willowy form emerged which we all immediately pounced upon — for it was none other than our dear old Patty Williams. But she is Patty no longer. 18 You have heard of Mme. Zula Vachesky? Well, it ' s our Patty — a world-famed clairvoyant. Not the least among the celebrities present were the two authoresses — the Leach twins. They have just published a book on " Correct Dancing " , and it has been very highly com- mended by the Outlook. You have heard of Madame Sontemorri, the eminent authority on Child Education. Dear Marion Barnard is in her element with all the children to experiment on she could wish for, since schools founded on her method are established in every part of the world. Our dear little Sarah is now appearing as Cassandra. The success with which the pres- entation of this role was greeted has rendered it impossible for her to be with us. Rumor hath it that the coronets of Dukes and Earls are lying at her dainty little feet. Have you heard of the exalted occupation of Gertrude Shackleton? She is running a jitney line de luxe, between Abbot and old P. A. Needless to say she has an overwhelming patronage and we understand that she is worth a small mint. Muriel, otherwise known as Mme. Yaleska, gave us a free demonstration of her special dance, which has made her queen of the cabaret dances. And dear old Aurelia has been an efficient member of the staff of St. Bartholomew ' s Hospital, New York, for over three years. From all accounts she is the most popular and best-beloved woman in her profession. Her unselfish devotion to her patients has won her the esteem and regard of a great many people. She has been called a second Florence Nightin- gale. Our bouncing Shelly is now bouncing around in China. She is teaching calisthenics to Chinese ladies, and her success is amply demonstrated by the sudden elongation of Chinese feet. Well, my dear, you can guess how excited we were when the " First Lady in the Land " joined our circle. Imagine it! Dear old Norm, the wife of the President of the United States! However, her exalted position apparently made no difference — she was the same old Norm 19 we felt we couldn ' t do without at Abbot and her dimples were deeper than ever. What do you think she brought!- ' An invitation from the President for the whole class to come down to the White House and meet all the celebrities. You will simply have to get back for this! Jessie, our class bride, is as coy as ever. However, she is not so secretive as of yore, about the immortal " Fritz " — in fact, it is rather hard work to get her to talk on any other topic. She is a truly inspiring example of blissful domesticity. We were all delighted when Betty Gleason was able to obtain a leave of absence from the school where she is teaching in Bingville. Texas. She had many amusing stories to tell us of the children ' s devotion to her. However, we were glad to find that the ardors of teaching had not deprived her of her girlish giggle. While we were still greeting Betty, we heard the clatter of hoofs on the newly -concreted circle and on rushing forth we perceived a vision in gauze and spangles poised lightly upon a horse ' s back. When the " vision " had approached nearer we discovered it to be none other than Helen Bruce, whom you remember to have been so demure. You remember little Bun Allen? Well, she has married the famous modern exponent of the Pre-Raphaelite school and she now poses as a model for innumerable madonnas and saints. Not t he least among our celebrities is one who has explored realms far beyond our ken at Abbot. Professor Winklebleck. You would never recognize our one-time " Winkie " in the grave and distinguished scientist, who has achieved undying fame by discovering the ultimate atom. You remember our " good kid " ? Well, my dear. Eleanor is now a scientific farmer, es! After taking a course in Cornell, she bought a farm in New Hampshire and is making a go of it. She now talks nothing but rotation of crops, milk and cream separators, to say nothing of roosters and " hawgs " . " Phillis " Brooks, my dear, is the Republican candidate for the governorship x f Massa- chusetts. The evidences are all in favor of her having an easy victory over her opponents. We girls heard one of her platform speeches — and she actually moved us all to tears. 20 Wasn ' t it the most fortunate thing you ever heard of, about " Lam " ? Imagine it! This was the only time she would have been able to be with us for ten years more anyway. She and her husband, Dr. Thomas Jackson, have returned for six months in order to get more supplies and money, so that they may extend their wonderful work. They have gone farther north than any of their predecessors, and they now number eight thousand Eskimos, whom they have converted. Our college beauty, Arline, is now travelling through the West as an advance agent for Billy Sunday. Her methods of arousing enthusiasm are so successful that at times she is in danger of being mobbed by over-enthusiastic members of her audiences. Rena and " Migie " , as you perhaps know, are starring in the " Follies of 1925 " . All New York is wild about them. " Migie " was wearing a bunch of fifty orchids and Rena was radiant in an ermine coat. Ada looks charming and more fascinating than ever in her widow ' s weeds. She is ex- tremely popular in Pittsburg, and between you and me and the gatepost, there are at least two distinguished personages who would give much for the privilege of wiping the tears from her blue eyes. I almost forgot to say that her mouth still crinkles at the corners when she smiles. And our dear old light-headed Si! Impulsive and versatile as ever! A book of charming love songs was immediately followed by an amazing record; yes, she came in first in the big International Auto Race — to our delight and to the horror of all those good, romantic old souls whom she pleases with her poetry. She looked simply stunning, with those golden locks in a perfectly fiendish twist — quite new, but, oh my! And now I believe this completes the list. Don ' t you think you owe it to us to write the latest and fullest particulars concerning your own dear self? How is the young German officer who stayed at your hotel, and which is to come off first, the exhibition of your master- piece in the Royal Academy, or ! With oceans of love and a kiss on every wave from all of us, Your devoted " Chum " 21 Siatbrxitt 5Vi «rus ' ■Blitillis ISrtJuks -SJ»«»rali (Cxtclmtu jflottif %txrrni te (Chariot! jRorris ;Dt Totliu " JHllsburri T£sH tr M htlb«n n ni FROM THE VIEW PUNT - kWI full He I B Rebekah of Sunnychick Farm In plot and characterization it is unique, a law unto itself. It is not the sort of production that holds you spellbound, but nevertheless it has a charm all its own. The play is one which no one can afford to miss because of the inspiration it affords. Peg 0 ' My Heart The heroine is a winsome and charming lass from Buffalo, who immediately captivates all hearts. The play does not contain a great number of clever lines, neither is it intensely dramatic, but no one who sees and hears it will regret that delightful experience. Patty Long-Legs This is a play which has not as yet received its just dues. It has many merits which have evidently been overlooked. It is a play which is perhaps better appreciated the second or third time which one sees it than on the first occasion. It is to be highly commended for its unexpected flashes of wit and the na ' ive originality evinced in both plot and construction. Without the Law The cast of this production is composed of quite a number of distinguished celebrities; not the least among these are Julie Sherman, Betty Bissell, Ruth Moore, Marie Gardner, and a number of others equally famous. This play is rich in both excitement and amuse- ment, but after one has witnessed the performance, one can ' t help regretting that the un- deniable ability of the cast should be wasted on a mediocre piece. 25 Under Cover The direct opposite of the play just criticized. At first, it has a very strong appeal — hut one soon finds oneself comparing it to II iihout the Law, and the comparison is immensely detrimental to Under Cover. The amusement and excitement afforded by the daring plots are greatly impaired in the latter play by the lack of frankness, openness, and spontaneity which constitute the chief merit of the rival production. It is a play which we should hesitate to pronounce worth while. The Beauty Shop Some extremely popular actresses appear in this comedy. The leading lady is Miss Esther Davis. A peculiar thing about this actress is that she always reserves her really best work for " ' Christmas time " . The part requires quite an extensive make-up, and she has been known to take over two hours in preparation for one of her appearances during one of the " Christmas " holidays. The Shadow Miss Brooks, an actress of unusual charm and quiet dignity, who appeals alike to all classes, is practically the whole show. The exquisite finish and technique which are associated with her presentations, should place her on a level with Sarah Bernhardt or Mrs. Fiske, were it not that she never quite forgets or loses herself in her part. But while this actress has not great genius, she most certainly has great talent, and a most successful futur e may be safely predicted for her. Grumpy Another misleading title — nothing could be further removed from a gloomy effect than the whole atmosphere of this play. From beginning to end it is one long laugh, although here and there a serious note creeps in, which, however, does not at all mar the artistic worth of the play. We extend our heartiest congratulations to Miss Sheldon for an excellent bit of work. 26 The Smart Set This is an amusing little farce which, while it never touches bottom, nevertheless pro- vides a certain amount of entertainment. The costumes and staging are particularly note- worthy. They are in some instances most elaborate. The most popular members of the cast are Miss Butler, Miss Weber, Miss Ferguson, Miss Erickson, Miss Balfe, and last but not least, Miss Warfield. Banty Pulls the Strings It appears that this play was produced a couple of years ago in Davis Hall, and, on account of the success with which it was attended it has been decided to revive it, although under entirely new management. If you have not already made its acquaintance, you undoubtedly will soon do so, as it was and still is immensely popular. A great treat is in store for those who have not yet made its acquaintance, while those who already know it will count all praise too weak. The Quaker Girl If one wishes to be genuinely amused and at the same time have all of one ' s senses cap- tivated by delight, do not fail to see this deliciously original show. The name is misleading — though Miss Wilkey looks the part to perfection. As the play advances we find that the seem- ingly demure and modest little heroine is in reality far from quakerish. There is quite enough spice in this piece to satisfy even the most blase habituees, and yet it is of a quality so re- fined that it should not offend, even the ultra fastidious. 27 — •Jntttattons Oh young, fair youth upon our green, Whence came ye here? Whence came ye forth with joyous mien To gaze upon our scene? Alas! we hear a woeful sound, He ' s opened wide his mouth. And forth came " One, two, three, " in tones That waken all the house. And soon our friend spies on the street A mooly cow! He leads her by one dainty horn. And round the path they speed. The Abbot girls from windows lean. The sight ' s too good to miss, — To see a P.
