" " Libby " looks so tall and stately, but you know that saying, " Looks are often deceiving " ? We think that it applies to her — and her room- mate verifies our statement. Haven ' t you heard " Libby ' s " infectious laugh rolling down the corridor? As for swinging a hockey stick, she does it with the best of us. In Psychology class her answers are always a help to the rest of us. In the Senior-Mid play " Libby " shone and we wonder if she isn ' t secretly harboring am- bitions for the stage — ?!

Oh yes, " Nattie B " , will you please tell us where you learned to say " He-ah " so distinctly? And also who dared you to write the original melody " Stumbling, " in musical appreciation?

But she ' s al- ways amusing, and if you need to be cheered .up, find her — if you can. BARBARA CLAY " Bab " " Babbie " Methuen, Mass. " A fair exterior is a silent commendation. " " Bab " manages Conrant very successfully and we wonder if she manages " Acy " , too. Her hair is always soft and curly — curly with assistance. Our fire drills — exciting things! — have re- vealed the " modus operandi " — shoe strings! " Bab " is very much interested in the drama — but she is an actress as well as a spectator; ask anyone who saw the English V plays. The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 BARBARA CUTTER " Barbie ' Dedham, Mass.

" Anne is one of our most doughty athletes and for her we are duly thankful; especially around Bradford Day. You see, she is quite the tennis player and besides that, she ' s been playing goal in hockey, for years and years and years — more or less. Her good fairy left her not only more than her share of athletic ability, but also a good- ly portion of histrionic ability; only recall num- erous English V Plays and the Senior Play.

" This is " Libby ' s " first year as a boarder and just to show how much we loved her we elected her president of our class, though we admit we didn ' t know her views about cigarette smoking at Abbot, at the time. She has high ambitions as the Third Floor Front corridor stunt showed. " Libby " may be a very dignified Senior Presi- dent — and she is, at times, but the rest of the time, — well, " Libby ' s " neighbors, situated any- where in Draper Hall, haven ' t listened to that ■ — shall I say " merry laughter " ? all year without divining something of her character.

Well, it ' s Ethel. She strums morning, noon and night — that is when she isn ' t studying hard at Psyc. or Household Science — and she always was strong for As- tronomy and Geology! Ethel has quite a bit of histrionic ability, too. Remember the Prologue in Senior Mid Play and the " wealthy .Hebrew " in Senior Play? Ethel is always cheerful and ready to do anything for anyone at anytime. r h e A bbot Circle 19 2 3 FRANCELIA ELIZABETH HOLMES " Fran " , " Franny " Brookline, Mass. B. S. P. E.

She also shines in the literary world and as for Stu. G. she certainly does make us walk the " straight and narrow " — just another accom- plishment to her list.

But that isn ' t all, — she writes the most thrilling and real- istic love stories ever conceived outside of the movies! Pretty clever girl she is! EMILY HOLT " Em " Andover, Mass.

" " Charlie " is noted for many things, but chief among them, her lovely voice, and along with her lovely voice, her blushes. The girls on the Third Floor Front know how peppy she is — and so does Bradford. " Charlie " is one of the latest and most efficient members on the Hockey Team. In fact, she ' s mighty efficient in every- thing. DOROTHY MILDRED KING " Dot " , " Dothe " Woonsocket, R. I.

" " Dottie " spends much of her time studying, but we hear she wants to go to Pembroke next year, and maybe that ' s the reason. And can she ride? Just go into her room some day and see all the cups and ribbons around — rather an at- tractive and novel form of interior decorating, we think.

With all her athletic interests we ' re not surprised that she ' s headed for B. S. P. E. Last year " Cal " used to spend most of her spare time knitting; this year she has added dress-making to her list of accomplishments. And of course, once in a while she does study a bit! LAURA LAKIN " Laurie " Miles City, Montana A. A. A. Treasurer ' 23 English V Play Author ' 23 Bible Group Leader ' 23 Arm Band ' 22 " Where do you come from, baby dear? " All aboard for Montana! This is the cry that sends our Western Laura into ecstasies. But it hasn ' t been hard for our cow-girl to become a part of Abbot ' s atmosphere; in fact, she has learned the great art of giving a regular Eastern marcel. We wonder if she ' s going to introduce that in Miles City? Laura ' s quite the little playwright too, but to all appearances nothing can swerve her from her determination to teach kindergarten. It ' s a mighty good profession, Laura, and here ' s wishing you luck! T h e A hbot Circle 19 2 3 ROSE LOBENSTINE " Brownie " Columbia, S. C.

" An Abbot Rose from China with a fund of jolly Chinese tales, told with Abbot humor; this is our Rose and the kind we like the best. She leads on the Honor Roll; she can rouse a piano to most tremendous harmonies and incidentally writes delightful verse for her own amusement.

" How could we know a group of Abbot girls without Reddy ' s gorgeous hair to identify it? " Reddy " likes to spend her summers abroad and we secretly believe she had a great deal to do with ending the war — for how could Germany afford to lose so rare a visitor? And how that girl can pep things up around here, especially in her role as cheer leader - and her parties, too, are a little bit of all right! The Abbot C i r cl e 1 92 3 ROSAMOND MARTIN " Ros " Winchester, Mas Clock Golf ' 21 Three years Arm Band ' 21 Senior Play ' 23 " Frailty, thy name is Woman. " Who can think of bridge without recalling " Ros " and her " one no trump " bid? Perhaps she learned to play like that out in Winchester on her many week-ends. Quite the place, Win- chester — from all reports. She is skilled not only in bridge, but in drawing, too; in fact she has a secret ambition to be Miss Pooke ' s suc- cessor. ELIZABETH DUKE MAXWELL " Libby " Ardmore, Oklahoma Wellesley Two years A. C. A. Treasurer ' 23 Bible Group Leader ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Odeon ' 23 Class Book Board ' 23 " How sweet the fellowship of those who feel. " " Libby " is the girl from ' way out in Okla- homa. She has the southern drawl but we can ' t say she has the southern manner — slow and easy. Decidedly not! And when it comes to writing stories she was Miss Hendrie ' s pride and joy. Oh yes, she ' s in Odeon and everyone says she will be an authoress some day. We ' re mighty glad " Libby " decided to stay two years and graduate with us.

Once she made a monkey face at dinner and — but we will spare her blushes at the result. Yes, indeed, she can blush beautifully.

" " Skeedie " , can ' t you give us a hint of how you play such a good card game? Is it just plain good luck or hard thinking? We ' re making a good guess that it ' s your brains — for cards aren ' t the only things you win in! We all hope you ' re planning to take up music when you leave Abbot and don ' t drop dancing, either; we want to see you, our " petite mademoiselle, " take your place with the immortelles.

We wonder if those gloves helped her to keep her balance skiing at Inter- vale, or if she is just a natural born sport. And she can act, too. Remember the " ohs " and " ahs " when she appeared in that sequin dress in the English V Play last year? And she called forth the " ohs " and " ahs " quite as much in the part of " Antonio " as in the role of a flapper. All of which proves that there is more to " Mart " than most of us will ever know.

Charlotte P. Hudson T h e Abbot C i.rcle 192 3 portion of a J|t£torp Tn the year 4023, a party of explorers, headed by the heirs of the Houses of Holmes and Flagg, noticing a queer mound in the vicinity of the city of Andover, dug away a castle and excavated a long sought hall of learning, called Abbot Academy. The structure was of brick, still in good condition. To all appearances everything had shrunk but there was still to be seen a queer circle which identified the place to the discoverers. One building was entered by a winding staircase, from which extended many narrow hallways. It was finally judged that the earth had covered the buildings in the year 1923 after the departure of the noble class of ' 23. A number of queer relics were found in one part of what was once the main building. A number of odd figures on presumably stiff paper representing females standing on queer boards, caused much puzzling. Under the pictures in hiero- glyphics was written " Intervale. " Nothing was gained by studying these prints except that the queer boards were a part of some ancient sport and that by the ex- pression on the was surmised that much enjoyment was had. One of the adventurers found an ancient journal, unfinished, yellowed and faded by age, which was written by a student at the institution during the years 1919-1923. Much time was spent in attempting to decipher the hieroglyphics and only after much difficulty, were certain parts translatable for the language was very queer and little understanding could be gained by perusing the sheets. A few extracts are here quoted : " Sept. 1918: — Registered today. Saw loads of girls, but don ' t know yet who ' s in my class. Funny looking bunch, it seems to me. " Nov. 1918: — Only eight in the class, but although we ' re a small class in num- bers, our minds are ' most as big as the Seniors ' . Four of us got on the Honor Roll. " May 1919: — Our elocution class spoke pieces before the school. Was scared to death but the congratulations afterwards were fine. " Oct. 1919: -— Juniors now. Elected our first officers. A great, exciting occasion ! Chose our class colors and flower, too. " Nov. 1919: — Had our class picnic at Pomps. Hot Dog! Sang songs and walked around the pond. Swell eats. 38 The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 " Nov. 1920: — Now we ' re Junior-Mids, and are slowly advancing in classes, but seem to diminish in respect to knowledge; when we were Preps, the less we knew, the more we thought we knew — now the more we know the less we think we know. It ' s tumble! Had our picnic again at Pomps. Saw a snake climb a tree. " Jan. 1921: — Sleighride to Corner Cupboard. Late back at school. Fun. " Oct. 1921: — Our class is huge, this year. The picnic was at night — " mirabile dictu. " Ate lollypops most of the time and old and new girls gave stunts. During study hour we surprised the Seniors and sang to them under their windows. Thrills galore! " June 1922: — Our class gave three plays; comedy, fairy story, serious scene. Seniors invited as our guests and sat in front rows. Much singing back and forth. " May 1922 : — My first Abbot Prom is over! and it was grand an ' glorious. Jim was darling! Our class decorated the hall with streamers and festoons. Much gaiety. Carried chairs back and forth until my back was about broken. Sympathized with poor, underclass kids who had to sit in the organ loft. " May 1922: — Never dreamed a Banquet could be so marvellous. There were loads of toasts. " B.B. " and " Kit " were darling. Seniors came and sang to us. Most of us wept buckets. Senior Parlor given to us! It was too sad for words! Much weeping and wailing! We ' re almost Seniors, now! " Oct. 1922: — Senior privilege of going on our picnic in trucks was fully appre- ciated. Grand food and many stunts. We came back by moonlight and sang. " February 1923: — Intervale is over! Our tired brains are rested. Much food consumed and we nearly broke our necks skiing and trailing. " Here all decipherable extracts ended but here and there were found such strange expressions as " the play was scrumbunctious " and " that secret, sacred banquet will. never be forgotten, " and " every Prom gets better and better ' ' . Then at the end of the journal were found these words " I ' ve graduated — but can ' t talk about it. Words fail me. " . It was decided, upon consultation, that this document be placed in the City Museum as the portrayal of boarding school life of the time is considered of value. Many other relics were found which are all carefully preserved. A book will soon be published telling of this famous excavation, which will be of interest to many descendants of Abbot Academy alumnae. The Abbot Circle I Efje Class! Will We, the class of 1923, will our good behaviour, our smiling- faces, our dignified bearing, our scholastic ability, and our profound wisdom to the Senior Middle class who are sadly in need of these qualities, and whom we ardently desire to ponder on these same bequests in their usual solitary manner throughout the tedious summer vacation. We leave the Faculty of Abbot Academy our appreciation of their good will and cooperation, and offer our best wishes for their success in the years to come. We leave the Senior Parlor, the front seats in chapel and our unfailing atten- tion in classes to those who will in the future, tread the same, silent, Senior corri- dors that we have tripped o ' er so lightly during the past year. Student Government leaves its cigarettes, collected by President Flagg; to Miss Kelsey. The Athletic Association suggests that its keen and ardent desire for a bub- bler on the hockey field, be kept close to the hearts of all the Athletic Associations to come. We leave our collection of side-pieces to Gretchen for use when she gets her permanent. Those among us, overburdened with more than brains, leave our reducing records to Marion Shryock. " Reddy " Lundin leaves her efficient baton to " Pat " Robbins. Ruth Holmes leaves her calm bearing and love for the Green Room to " Becky " George. " Dee " Osborne leaves her pep to Margaret Wilson and Alice Wells. " Nattie " B. leaves her drag in Psychology class, along with her melancholy class demeanor, to " Ginny " Gilmore. The Thompsons leave all their twin dresses to Caroline and Grade. Martha Snyder leaves her P. T. to Jane Allen. Charlotte Hudson leaves her rare collection of slang expressions to Adelaide Hammond who, we are trusting, will write a sonnet to said expressions entitled, " The Modern Girl and How She Does it. " " Woodie " bequeaths her Detroit drawl to Frances Howard. " Libby " Maxwell hopes that Florence Prickett will appreciate her gift of Miss Hendrie ' s affection and will profit by it as well as " Libby " has done. " Dotty " Taylor wills her prodigious stature to Genevra Rumford. The Class Book Board leaves its remarkable ability, its unfailing sarcasm, and this, its last and only literary masterpiece, the Class Book, to the memory of the students, hoping that the afore-mentioned academicians will recover in time lo reap the benefits bequeathed them in the above manuscript. Signed and sealed as and for its Last Will ami Testament, in the presence of us, who, by request, did sign our names as witnesses thereto. The Class of 1923 The Abbot Circle 1923 S. 9.

The curtain parts and we find ourselves in the early colonial kitchen of the home of Miles Standish, Captain of the Plymouth colony, in the summer of 1622. Peering anxiously out of the door is Barbara Standish, the Captain ' s wife. A terrified cry calls our attention to a newcomer, Miriam Chillingsby, the Cap- tain ' s cousin, a dainty, demure and wholly captivating Puritan miss. Closely following her, enters Aunt Resolute Story, a typical, fussy, irresistible old lady. Gay laughter is heard outside and presently Rose, a merry French lass, enters with her brother, Phillipe, and John Margison, a sullen-faced young man, obviously in love with Rose, and scornful of Miriam who really thinks herself in love with him. Rose is left alone to prepare breakfast and suddenly an armful of green corn flies through the open window and after it tumbles Garrett Foster, of Wes- ton ' s men, a well known young daredevil, who seeks a place in which to hide. He conceals himself behind a settle just as Miles Standish in military garb and of a soldierly bearing, enters. After breakfast Captain Standish discovers the corn, which Rose claims she plucked, whereupon Garrett rises from his hiding place and states that he is the real thief. During the summer, Garrett is a frequent visitor at the Standish home, and has almost succeeded in obtaining Rose ' s promise to marry him, when a chance remark causes her to change her mind. She then turns her attentions to Margi- son, and before long the two jealous and enraged rivals, Foster and Margison, en- gage in a duel, during which Phillipe, seeking to protect Rose, has intercepted a sword thrust and is wounded. The Captain enters and banishes Foster upon Margison ' s assertion that Foster began the duel. During the period of Foster ' s absence Miriam, in spite of her intense interest in Margison, is won by Phillipe and Rose is unhappily betrothed to the scoundrel, John. Garrett risks his life to bring news of the approach of the Indians and in the ensuing battle saves the settlement. The credit for this brave deed is taken by Margison, until Rose, by means of an old red coat, proves that Garrett is the " better man " — and the " only man " for her. 68 The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 fje Cftotce By Laura Lakin Sally Mrs. Stone Mr. Henderson Bill . Barbara Clay Bessie Korst Sally Finch Carolyn Lakin All summer long Sally, an attractive university girl, has helped her mother take care of boarders at their Ranch Home out West, while Bill, a young cowboy and college graduate, very much interested in her a year ago, has turned his attentions to a young Eastern girl, Dorothy Bradford, a visitor at the ranch. Sally returns from a long ride to the Valley Ranch and finds Mr. Henderson, a neighbor- ing rancher, talking to her mother. He had been asking Mrs. Stone about Bill, and to his utter disgust finds that Bill is engaged to that Eastern girl. When he leaves Sally breaks down and in a burst of passion tells her mother just what she thinks of Dorothy. Mrs. Stone tries to comfort her but she runs away as she hears Bill ' s voice in the yard. A very much dejected and disheartened Bill enters and tells Mrs. Stone that it is " all off " between him and Dorothy, and that he really loves Sally. As he talks, Mrs. Stone quietly leaves the room to send Sally in. She comes just as Bill is about to go. Bill tries to explain, to tell her that she is his only love, but Sally is relentless and takes him to task for playing around with Dorothy all summer. Bill feels there is no hope and turns to go. Sally calls him back to tell him that he has forgotten his hat, and then to add, " But, Bill, I do love you. " With a strong, swift motion Bill places Sally on the table, too over- come with joy to say anything further. Mrs. Stone en ters, sees the lovers and quietly leaves with a happy smile. S. E. F.

Dolores Osborne Ethel Thompson Madeline Howard Ruth Hunt Caroline Hall 1 Dorothy Barringer Elsie Phillips Mr. Van Astor, connoisseur of valuable Indian scarabs, has forbidden Philip Maynard r a friend of Betty Van Astor, entrance to the Van Astor home because he thinks Maynard is " a worthless young man who thinks of nothing but theatre parties and dances. " Maynard,. unknown to everyone except Betty, has taken the position of butler in her home and is there during the visit of Mr. Vance, an esteemed friend of Mr. Van Astor. The former is very much interested in Mr. Van Astor ' s collection of scarabs. Mrs. Van Astor enters to tell her husband that she is going to a bridge party, and is going to meet Mrs. Johnson ' s charming husband, " who is really a Count, you know! " After she leaves, Van Astor and Vance set out for the Club, leaving Betty and James, really Philip Maynard, to themselves. In the middle of the night Mr. Van Astor hears a rumpus in the room where his scarabs are locked up, and rushes down to find James overpowering Mr. Vance. As James turns around Mr. Van Astor realizes he is Philip Maynard and demands an explanation. At this point, Mrs. Van Astor comes in and rushes to her husband for protection. Then comes Maynard ' s explanation : he was detailed there by the Secret Service to watch Mr. Vance who is in reality Jack Mason, the notorious New York jewel thief. Maynard calls headquarters and officers are sent over and " Mr. Vance " is taken away. Mr. Van Astor- realizes Philip ' s worth and the latter ' s love for Betty. He and his wife go out, leaving Betty and Phil for the final happy ending. 70 The Abbot Circle 19 Ha proma by Ruth Henry Carmen Luis Aguilar Don Antonio Dona Ana Pepe . Music o joven Musico ciego Adela, Carmen ' s maid . Miriam Sweeney Ruth Pritchard Kathryn Wallace Bessie Korst Marion King Betty Bragg Octavia Matthews . Martha Buttrick " La Broma, " a one-act Spanish comedy, means " The Joke. " In the opening scene Don Antonio, the father, is very nervous and excited and tells the maid that he is called to the office — a little later he tells his daughter that he is going to the station to meet " his new secretary. " On leaving, he promises to return in a few moments. Carmen and the maid, not understanding his extreme nervousness, compare notes and, with the aid of a telegram which Don Antonio has dropped in his haste, they realize that he is bringing home the son of an old friend, hoping that his daughter, not suspecting the young man ' s identity, will fall in love with " the new secretary. " Both girls think it an ideal opportunity to play a joke on the father and they decide to exchange identities, Carmen donning the maid ' s cap and apron. When Don Antonio returns he absent-mindedly introduces the maid as his daughter and Carmen as the maid. In the conversation which ensues between the disguised Carmen and Luis he confesses to her that he is really the son of an old friend and that the two fathers are anxious to arrange a match between their children. By a chance word that Carmen lets slip, Luis realizes that this charming sefiorita is really the daughter. Just as he takes her hand and is about to confess his love for her, Don Antonio, followed by his wife and the maid, Adela, enter. It proves to be " love at first sight " and in a few moments the matter is satisfactorily explained. M. C. S.

" 78 The A bho I Circle 1923 Ufa etiquette Jioofe {Special Abbot Edition) For the convenience of those who are not acquainted with the standards and customs of Abbot, the Class Book Board publishes these few suggestions. Class room demeanor should be governed by the same rules of hilarity and inattention that are in use in the Congo. If you chance to linger on the way to class so that the class room is not reached until after the second bell has rung, ask the teacher if she will excuse you ; she will gladly let you return to your room at once. If you have the misfortune to sneeze during Hall Exercise, rise quietly, be recognized by the speaker and apologize courteously for the inadvertence. The correct hours for receiving callers in one ' s room are between 9.30 P.M. and 6.50 A. M. The best means of announcing this arrangement to your friends is to notify them through your corridor teacher. She will be very glad to oblige you. Both Seniors and Faculty will greatly appreciate your discourtesy if you rush in before them on the stairs down to the dining-room. They will also appreciate it if, when you see them approaching far down the corridor, you form a little blockade and allow them to pass through the " dry sea " unmo- lested. Never cut your steak with a knife — use a saw; and never, under any cir- cumstances, cut your lettuce with a knife. In the dining-room, if the maid stays in the kitchen for an apparently in- definite period before clearing the table, it is quite proper for the whole table to rise, at the signal of the teacher, gather together all used dishes and take them to the kitchen. To avoid confusion right of way should be given always to the table farthest from the kitchen. Be sure to express to all members of the Class Book Board, your unfailing, bad opinion of their attempted humor and your scathing remarks about their badly directed sarcasm. This do, and thou shalt be forever blessed. 79 T h e A bbot Circle 19 2 3 abbot Ulcabemp Comprefjensribc examination (Emphasis on the " Comprehensive " ) Keynote: " Those who do not wish to know, ask of those who cannot tell. " Directions: 1 . If you do not know any facts, disguise your ignorance in a wealth of words. 2. Remember that it is untidiness, not information, that is sought. 3. If you can ' t spell a word, use its antonym. 4. Quantity, not quality is what counts, especially if the examiner is tired of correcting. 5. Don ' t sleep the night before an exam, you must be thoroughly awake for it ; but if you feel sleepy during it, lie at full length and breathe in the West Point manner. 6. Don ' t feel obliged to answer any question; it was only asked because the teacher couldn ' t think of anything else. 7. Tell all you know, if you feel so inclined, and let the teacher pick out what she wants. Musical Appreciation, June, 1923. I.
