The Abbot Cirrlrf 1920 After the majestic model had indifferently returned my salutation, I passed on, to find a long table holding food of many sorts: scallops, club sandwiches, steak, French pastry, and gaily presided over by Betsy Hawkes, who was running this so-called bread line for her sisters-in-hunger. Helen.Polk and Martha Stock- well were clamoring for lirst place, Agatha VVade and Muriel lvloxley patiently awaiting their turn, and Ruth Wiiiii bringing up the rear with a famished look. just beyond the group I saw Isabel Sutherland striding about and wailing, "Oh for a breath of air!" But Hades had no windows for her to open. I next came to a fetching little hairdressing shop, owned and operated by a perfectly marcelled blond whom I knew instantly to be Elsa Baalack. She was just putting the finishing touches to another faultless wave on the head of Lee XVickersham, and her assistant, jean Lyon, was standing by to stylishly coif l-ee's long yellow locks. In sad contrast to this picture of perfect bliss was a sight in one of the more retired corners, which was apparently the reducer's circle. Here I saw Edna Dixon and Peg Ackroyd going through the required but indescribable motions with set determined faces. Charlotte Vose, who kept a beautifully fitted Turkish bath near by, was cheering them on from the vantage point of her own desirable slimness. And Judy Abbe, clutching the little shades of "Sunshine" and "Shad- ow", the two cats known and loved at Abbot in the days of 1920, was classically singing to them in her coloratura soprano. It was pleasant to find Eliza Bailey as the much amused nursemaid of a troop of little devils, who disported themselves playfully about her. I recognized Alice Davis and Mary Bushnell as two gamboling imps, Lillian Grumman and Irene Franklin as others. Lucy Pratt was vainly endeavoring to bob their respective locksg she had evidently taken up the trade of barber and was advertising her skill on her own head. As I reapproached the gate I saw coming toward me Florence Matile, sad but blushing in the garb of a nun, and nervously telling over and over a long rosary of fraternity pins. VVandering about hand in hand I caught sight of two still-bewildered fallen angels, Jay Pearsall and Georgia VVarren. Unexpectedly I laughed, and awoke with a start to find myself contemplating a poem of Ros Patch's in a worn old 1919 Courani, and remembered that in the dream I had thought her very poetic-looking. As I slowly pieced together my dream-adven- tures I realized that Mary Delano and Kay Kinney had been the only missing members of the class of 1920. With a sigh I came to the conclusion that they only of that promising class had gone to Heaven. 73
