The Abbot Circle 19 22 jWtrror of Jf acultp Eoto Miss Bailey Her clear understanding and ready sympathy have safely tided all of us over our rough places. We all, and Seniors especially, realize what beautiful ideals she stands for, and know that her great influence has so awakened us that the good we may accomplish in the future will be largely due to her. Miss Kelsey and Miss Mason They seem to belong together — and to Abbot. No other combination could be considered! Patience is ever a virtue, and Miss Mason has shown, from chemistry classes to managing a Senior corridor, that hers can ' t be ruffled. Miss Kelsey shares honors, for giving, without showing us up, permission to buy toothpaste Saturday afternoons, and to make fudge " for the first time in ages " on Wednesdays. Miss Chickering Miss Chickering, whose astounding memory of facts and other things keeps us blinking all the time, is one whom we would like to have with us permanently, because of this, but chiefly because of herself. Miss Howey Perhaps if we can ever learn to grasp every opportunity as Miss Howey does, and to keep our eyes open to everything as she does, we shall be on the way to acquiring her contagious wide-awakeness and alert enthusiasm. Miss Bancroft Miss Bancroft is notorious for her baby talk, one of those outlets for a bubbling good-nature. Miss Marceau Her sweet and charming manners and speech are constant examples for Abbot girls to follow. Miss Matthews Miss Matthews has become most famous to us because of " Henry " . She and Miss Marceau have given us a few informal but delightful serenades. 42
