As we plant the lasting emblem Of the years so richly spent, Years of striving ever upward, Years in gain of knowledge bent; As we feel the love and patience Of a mighty host gone by, Who a firm foundation builded, And upon this class rely; May we prove the worthy hold- ers Of the trust they freely give. May this world be fuller, richer For the lives which we shall live. Elizabeth Thompson

The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 Snterbale The pale moon shines on a fairyland of hills and mountain peaks, and the bustling wind in a hurricane makes the glittering snowdrifts deep, and all around the town is still, for the world has gone to sleep. But here we sit by the fireside in our cozy little inn, and rest and talk of what joy and fun our happy trip has been. Those silvery nights when the sleighbells ring and our voices join in their song, and we think of the trailing and skiing we ' ve done as we played the whole day long. How we climbed that steep cliff and tumbled and fell; but the things we ate make our mouths water to tell. Now the fire is low, but the dim cannot blur this vision that ' s all too true, for we ' re thinking and dreaming and yearning once more. For whom? Why, Intervale — for you. 37

The Abbot Circle 10 2 1 Qtt)t Jf able of tfje tratgfjt anb J arroto $atf) Once there was a Class, who had Hopes of Graduating in ' 21. The only Relic left of those who started away back yonder before an unprepared World was swatted simultaneous by Social Unrest and Nation Wide Prohibition and before this Exclusive Social Organization had enjoyed a fruity Reputation as a Nut Fac- tory, is Edith Page, a Dame endowed with that Art called Dramatic Instinct. She was joined in the following Year by Libby Weld, who was strong on back- to-nature stuff and Pete Weld, who before she was biting on a Rubber Ring was being coached to play the Part of our Class Comedian. Then, the next Year, arrived Florence Hinckley, she of the lengthy Pedal Extremities, and Marianna Wilcox, who cut loose from the native Shire, and Frances Keany, who made a long Trip from Bean-Town. And in 1919 with one fell Swoop the Grand Old School was hit by a Migrator with a flossy Label -- Sylvia Nicholson; one Miriam Bickford, who had not pro- gressed from Pin Feathers to the Age of Discretion ; Martha Smith, who wielded a very consistent Knife and Fork and whose Daily Demand was for Something that sticks to the Ribs; Dorothy Martin, whom it fussed quite a bit to be compelled to Feed Herself under the Scrutiny of Comparative Strangers; a Winifred Simpson, whose Painting suggested that in the Great Shake-Up of Destiny perhaps it was meant that She should be an Artist; Frances Howe, whose early training in a Cen- ter of Sociability prompted her to discuss the Weather with Total Strangers and likewise a little choice Scandal now and then ; one Frances Gasser, at whom every- one looked askance when she appeared in Morning Coat and Orchid, and that Narrow White Hickey inside the Vest, and the Spats and the Curly Hair draped over All; Beatrice GofT, whose dignified Suit of Quaker Grey, the chiseled sug- gestion of Patrician Reserve on her high brow, the wince of Pain and the up- lifted Eyebrow when someone indulged in a Cursory Remark — all these meant much to the Observant Faculty; it befell that Carol Perrin got in here sideways in spite of telling little tales about when Highballs were peddled over the Bar and Public Dancing was tolerated and Women wore four-inch Heels. In the Year following the Year 1919, which some People are wont to call 1920, we had so many Stars that even the Manager was Trembling. Dy ' a see that Bunch out on the Circle taking the Sun?
