The .flhbof Cirfic 1920 other desperately as the little Ford whizzed along. Farther on we crossed the winding Styx and I watched a graceful dive made by Polly Parrott, who seemed to be in bathing all by herself. On the bank of one of the deep pools sat Dot Fisher, raptly casting and re-casting, and apparently being laughed at by all the little fishes present, as her basket was empty. I was first ohf when the little conductorette called out "The Abbot Circle", and the first thing I saw was a huge gate of dark green marble, its white marble letters spelling out the class motto HTarry On". It didn't seem quite right, I thought even in my dream, but I forgot it promptly as Carrie XYilkinson peeped beguilingly out of the door, offering to sell me the necessary sight-seeing ticket. Naturally, I hastened in, to find Paula Miller, whom Carrie slangily remarked. was "handing out her dizzy line" as a general introduction to the attractions of Hades. The first thing I saw was a neat information bureau, with a beautifully printed sign saying "All Questions Answered " and behind it sitting Kay Green- ough, who, besides giving spicy bits about Hades to all newcomers, was also lec- turing in the afternoons on many interesting subjects, it seemed. Sounds had already met my ear, and I was looking around involuntarily for Hope Allen who ought, of course, to be leading. I found her soon, the conductor of the Hades jazz Band, enthusiastically on her tip toes, and ably supported by Ginny Miller, the Vice-President. I realized how I must have neglected the musi- cal talent of Abbot 1920, as I was surprised to see Marjorie Miles playing the guitar, Dorothy Tyler playing the Xylophone and Helen VValker, the trombone. I also noticed Vivien Gowdy off by herself desperately tuning her ukulele. The entire result was so inspiring that it seemed very natural to see Hilda Heath and Marjorie Downs dancing together with languid grace. VVafted onward by these rhythmic strains I next halted before the great central throne, on which sat the queen of all, the majestic Satana, whom I recog- nized with interest as my erstwhile pupil, Sue Dodge. She appeared cool, self- possessed and possibly a trifle bored. Edith Adams, the court contortionist, was feverishly exerting herself to charm her indifferent ruler: Betty Babb pranced about waving her jester's bauble and coxcomb beguilingly, but all in vain. How- ever, when I saw Helen Thiel painstakingly reproducing on a large square of paper the regal form and features I appreciated the pose of the Queen. Margaret IYor- man was sitting on the lower step of the throne mending the hem of Susan's purple velvet robe. If I had not caught a glimpse of Lyd McCreary's yellow hair I might have missed her altogether. She was curled up in the midst of countless cushions on the bottom step of the throne dreaming with blissful serenity, and apparently unceasingly. I missed her conversation: sleep only could silence it, I gathered. 72
