Tl1cAbbn1fC1'1'rIe 1920 Jiaistutp uf the lass of 1920 ln the beginning there were only seven, lVho came from far and near to be at Abbot. lfour of these maidens lived at Sherman Cottage, Xvhcre most amazing times they had together In playful, child-like sport, for young they wereg And truly they longed more for Teddy-bears, And other things to lightly, freely play with, Than yearned their hearts for Algebra and l.alin. The other three, day scholars happy were, And home they gaily tripped at half-past threeg At night they could be tucked in bed by mother! Well, time just skipped and jumped and danced along Until Commencement came, and then the summer, XVhen all the seven returned from whence they came. Now in the season of the falling leaves They all came back again to be at Abbot. But "Pea-green Preps" they were no more, no longer The H jolly juniors" now their schoolmates called them One day they gathered in old Abbot Hall. Straight, tall, before them stood the Senior Leader, VVho words of wisdom spoke throughout the stillness And said that now we too might have our leaders. VVe chose for our first president Catherine Greenough, W'ho proved throughout the year a leader strong. VVe worked: and played at hockey, basket-ball, And tennis: happy Juniors eight we were! And then the time came for another leader, And "Jamey" Prescott, lover of all sports, The chief of all high jumpers then we chose. Quick sped the days along until the night Came when the Abbot Prom so grand was held. O night, O night of nights it seemed to us Because we could not go, we were too "young",' But in the organ-loft we took our places, And with our eyes all bright, intent, and eager, XVe hung with beating hearts adown the railing, O'er which we well-nigh fell in ecstasy. Before we knew it almost came again The summer, with its days of warmth and gladness: Away we sped to all our happy homes. As junior-Mids we met in autumn time, And joyfully we greeted our new members. To lead our bonny class for half a year XVe Helen Vedder chose: we called her "Chick", And sometimes lengthened out the name to H Chicken ". She was a strong and steady hockey player, And also knew the art of making baskets. Soon came a day which we had long awaited, M The day of our most glorious Class Picnic Beside the shining waters of Pomp's Pond. And of that very jolly, dear occasion VVe memories have of songs beside the fire, Of sandwiches, and "hot-dogs", and marshmallows: Of merry laughs all ringing out of tune, And rhymes and jingles written to each other. The next event which we enjoyed together A straw-ride was, and out at VVilson's Corners We sipped good chocolate hot, adrink most warming VVhen Christmas holidays were quite all over, And mid-years, too, those thrilling small Hadventures' We chose for our fair class another leader To pilot us along uncertain ways, - Louise Robinson, who was oft called " Robby", A tennis-player matchless in her day.
