Th-e. Abbot Circle 19 22 relief of her family, and bids the angry Guido " good evening " . He, however, very determined, rushes at her and she with his " gentle " aid discovers a diamond stickpin caught in the front of her gown. The pin is, of course, what Guido has come for and Margot, hardly believing that he has come for a pin instead of her, watches him, not regretfully, be ushered out of her life by Mr. Smythe and Austin. When father returns, he accompanies poor mother, who is quite over- come, to her room. Margot, still not understanding, reflects on the incident and immediately comes a blinding realization. Guido, of course, came after her but seeing her amid her usual surroundings could not presume to ask her to marry him and very cleverly used the pin as an excuse. " How perfectly simple! " The explanation is, however, perfectly satisfactory to her and she settles down for a nice long talk with poor old Steve, over the ' phone, while Austin appropriately closes the scene with a ceremonious " Amen " on the piano. " iou J2eber Can Wtll " By Marian Rugg Lillie went away for the summer engaged to two men because she felt she could not ruin either ' s life by refusing him. But during the summer she met Don who, she was sure, was the only man in the world for her. Now they both were home, at one of the dances, and Don insisted that they announce their engagement. Lillie was forced to admit she was already engaged to Jack and Dick. Don forgot his anger as he realized they were both at the dance, but demanded that Lillie break with them that evening. Lillie agreed hesitatingly, feeling she was about to give a death blow to two men she rather liked. But Jack entered with an indifferent swing and started to talk rapidly. He informed Lillie, without giving her a chance for a word, that he was really in love, for the first time in his life, with Eleanor Atkins. Jack left Lillie gasping as Dick entered for his dance. Lillie, this time, talked fast and furiously to prevent a similar disaster, but Dick interrupted her as she reached her crisis to tell her he loved another girl — Eleanor Atkins — and his feeling for Lillie was merely brotherly affection. Don returned to a subdued Lillie who tremblingly asked him if he knew — Eleanor Atkins!!? Lillie almost fainted as he drew out a letter from her, but it was just a note announcing her coming marriage to Billy Rowley. Lillie ' s spirits soared at this news — perhaps a little higher as she thought of Jack and Dick. So Lillie and Don, all their complications being settled, once more pledged their love and danced happily out of sight. 67

The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 " ftfje roobe " By George Middleton Sara had stayed at home with her mother while Connie, her younger sister, went to college. Now Connie had graduated and was home and Sara thought that she, at last, would be able to go away from it all, for she felt that she was getting into a groove and she had set her heart on being a nurse. But matters weren ' t just as she had expecte:! to find them, for her attractive young sister Connie had fallen victim to Cupid ' s arrow and it seems that her beloved Paul was going to Brazil within two months. He was most anxious to take Connie with him — and who could blame him for wanting such an attractive girl as Ruth Holmes made? But one of them had to stay with their mother. One must give up her heart ' s desire, and each unselfishly offered to do it. But Sara finally persuaded her younger sister that it was only right for her to go with Paul. Annetta Richards as Sara .made us feel with her how great this sacrifice really was and how little happiness the future held for her. ENGLISH V PLAYS " Jfflargot ' s little affair " By Mary Elizabeth Polk Margot Smythe, a very modern flapper, is " dragged " home by an hysterical mother, a furious father, and a cynical brother because she has turned a perfectly proper dance into a shocking and disgraceful affair by leaving " Steve " in the middle of the floor and dancing with a " common Italian saxophonist " , thereby lessening her mother ' s chances of social success and her brother ' s chances, which depend on " Steve " , of business success. Margot, merely having " expressed " herself, thoroughly enjoys her family ' s scoldings and threats. In fact, she con- siders the situation quite dramatic and further shocks the family by announcing her intention to marry the notorious Guido. She admits that he knows nothing of the plan, but is perfectly confident that he will force her to marry him. At the crucial moment of her startling announcement, a very furious and rumpled Guido enters, demanding " that w ' at ees hees " . Margot, seeing in him a very different person from her late dancing partner, changes her mind much to the 66

The Abbot Circle 19 2 2 Hall of Jfame We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Maxfield Parrish, because of the color of his drawings, because of their startling unusualness, but chiefly because an Abbot girl ' s room would not be comme il faut without one of his pictures. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, long hair, because it is " woman ' s crown- ing glory " , because it can be beautiful, but principally because it is such a rarity. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, the letter rack, because it is something we are actively conscious of at least three times a day, because it looks so nice on the wall in the office, but chiefly because from its bland surface we receive (or do not receive) the thing which we want most. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Friday night, because it is the climax of the week, because it is the only thing that enables us to exist through the other six days, and finally because it is the only appointment that Abbot girls never forget. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Charles, because he brings us our mail faithfully each day, because of his resemblance to Abraham Lincoln, but chiefly because of his unfailing cheerfulness and willingness to help. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, Dandelion, because he belongs to Miss Bailey, because he (Oh, green-eyed jealousy) has swam in the Frog pond, but above all because he is the only one in our midst who makes himself nonchalantly at home in the office. We nominate to the Hall of Fame, our floors, because they are a beautiful and remarkable hue of maroon, because they have an unearthly tenacity for catching and clinging to all kinds of dust, but paramountly because they SQUEAK. 68
