The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 " E )t Jflortst Mop By Winifred Hawkridge In Mr. Slovsky ' s flower shop many little romances and long love stories come to an end, and Maude, the saleswoman, romantic and sympathetic, takes a real personal interest in each one, planning engagements and weddings as if they were her own. To put a personal interest into the business, Maude, with the consent of Mr. Slovsky, who has great faith in her, and the aid of Henry, the little clerk and general utility boy whose admiration for this young lady makes him a willing listener to the long flights into the flower histories of many of the old customers, has sent to each one complimentary bouquets according to the size of their bills with the shop. On the list appears the item " Orchids for Miss Wells, " an old spinster, whose flower bill with Slovsky ' s had been limited to an Easter lily every spring, which she sent to the fiance, Mr. Jackson, to whom she had been engaged for fifteen years. In order to bring about the marriage Maude has sent them without a card, and Miss Wells, when she appears wearing the flowers, is excited and mystified to find that, according to Maude, they have been sent by some tall, dark man without " dear Mr. Jackson ' s " knowledge. After Miss Wells has gone on into the shop to indulge in some bulbs Mr. Slovsky discharges Maude because of her foolish extravagance in sending his precious orchids to such a customer. Just as she is leaving Mr. Jackson enters to inquire about the flowers which his fiancee is wearing and Maude again comes to the rescue and mysteriously describes the unknown suitor. Miss Wells re- turns from the other room, and a very humorous scene follows, in which Maude is reinstated once more, and receives a large order for white roses and lilies of the valley for the wedding of Miss Wells and Mr. Jackson. Who would believe that Jane could be the important, smart little Henry whom we all loved, and Alex, the gesticulating, business-like Mr. Slovsky? Or that Sandy could become an egotistical, fastidious Mr. Jackson, and Laura the sweet, hopeful Miss Wells? Last but not least there was Maude, whom Miss Morgan played, as only she can do, in the absence of Ruth Hill. Each one did so well that the flower business will always be absorbing, appealing and twice as entertaining as usual. 77

The Abbot Circle 192 1 " Wfje J2eigporsf By Zona Gale This play deals with a typical group of country folk. The plot is simple and it is the actress ' interpretation of the characters that gives the life and humour to the play. Who ever thought " Van " Lamb could draw such a long face over her " ailments, " or that Florence Phillips would get so shrilly excited over a " Buffalo Bug, " or Helen Goodale over " a cord of wood. " But they did and made Mis ' Moran, Mis ' Trot, and Ezra Williams " real folks, " as Granny would say, that little old lady whom Elizabeth Whittemore made us all love, with her dislike for carpet rags and longing to do something. Janet Warren was a delightful Mis ' Abel, ruling over this group with her sharp tongue and warm heart. Last but not least, her daughter, Inez, where C. P. Damon was just lov- able, and Peter, the long, lanky, young man, who plainly agreed with us about Inez but to such a degree that he lost his tongue (who ever heard of Mary doing that) as well as control of his limbs in her presence. And only Mary Polk could have been that Peter! All these people found they could, in spite of many personal difficulties, plan and contribute towards a shower of food and clothes for the poor sweet neighbor that Muriel Moxley made in the part of Mis ' Ellsworth, who unexpectedly learned that her nephew was coming to live with her. In this neighborly preparation Peter " forgot himself " and the love story ended happily. Though the little boy did not come, we are gladdened and refreshed by the kindness and sympathy of this group of real neighbors. 76

The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 " 3t ftappeneb " By Jessamine Rugg Jane is beautiful and Jane is — well, Jane is quite a truthful portrait of everything that ' s sweet and good and she loves her best friend ' s fiance because — well, she just can ' t help it ! What a com- fort to have a friend who understands and sympathizes as Louise does and who can be trusted to keep a confidence. Gwendolyn Bloomfield as Louise made us feel sure that Jane ' s secret was hers too and that Jack would never know how deep an affection Jane had for him. And now, does a girl who dotes on jazz and cigarettes and her own good time first, last and al- ways, deserve a fine, clean-cut young man with high ideals? Of course not ! That ' s why Jack was left alone heart-sick and disgusted when Anita eloped with a football star at the Yale Prom. Lou- ise Mount played the part of scatter-brain Anita and very cleverly told us of " a honey- moon on Honolulu Bay. " Olive Howard was her prize husband and we could not help laughing at his indifferent manner towards his kidnapped bride. Jane ' s mother was the real life of the play, a fashionably dressed and gossipy bridge fiend, whose nerves must be stimulated by parties and news of other people ' s affairs. Vera Barnett made a stunning mother and her wit and by-play fascinated the audience. So " It Happened " that Jack had an awakening and realized he had been loving a sweet little girl who was always kind and thoughtful and always understood, and she wasn ' t Anita, she was Jane! We do not blame Elizabeth Thompson who played Jane for holding Jack up as her ideal. Elizabeth Hutchinson made a perfect lover and who couldn ' t be happy for ever and ever with him? The cast was completed by Alice Hallett, who made a charming little French maid. " Pucfeskin nne " By Edith Page Charles Bradshaw Anne Darling Buckskin Anne Susanna Welborn Sir Kenneth Gwynne Margaret Ailing William Gwynne Lydia Kunkel Servant Natalie Page Whoop -ee-e!! A flash of brown — a jingle of beads, then a laugh! Thus did the wild nymph of the woods, Buckskin Anne, make her entrance upon a very interesting scene — a rather vitally interesting scene, as it concerned this young lady ' s ( !) future life. Her father, Charles Brad- shaw, had just finished making plans for her marriage to a perfectly strange, perfectly handsome young Englishman, whom she soon found was the son of her father ' s friend of by-gone years. Both father, Sir Kenneth Gwynne, and son had just arrived in America from England, and because many things had gone wrong with them in their old home were to live here. The whole thing had been very sudden, but Buckskin Anne rose to the occasion and treating it all as a huge joke set about to shock and fascinate her future lord and master. William went through several stages of shocked- ness and then fell completely in love with her. But entirely contrary to her plans Anne was not only strongly attracted by this young Englishman, but with overwhelming suddenness felt her childish- ness, her crude unconventional mode of living and dressing. With one quick, mischievous smile, a bound — and she was gone! William, who hadn ' t seen the smile, was unconsolable. There was a rustling in the doorway. It was Anne — but oh, so different. Gloriously beau- tiful in her mother ' s wedding gown — tremulously conscious of her love — this new something that has come over her. She timidly questions their approval. William says nothing, but his heart is in his eyes — her father boisterously enthusiastic — Sir Kenneth honestly admiring. Anne is deliciously happy. With a quick, impulsive movement she grasps a tomahawk, leaps upon the table and is about to utter another of her blood-curdling war hoops, but her gaze en- ( ounters William ' s. " William, wouldst kiss my hand instead? " 78
