The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 parting S ong O Alma Mater, as we part, Our hearts go out to you In firmer, stronger loyalty, And, hoping ever to be true, Because we have our thoughts of you, We go, with loving heart. But ere we turn, O school so dear, To go where new life calls, We leave this symbol of our love, That still within thy cherished walls There may be proof, whate ' er befalls, Of memories lingering here. Charlotte P. Hudson

The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 lilt Life ' s like a tapestry of Flanders, Threads crossing threads, Meeting and interlacing, Making a pattern Called character. Patches of red, and patches of gray, Red for joy, and gray for grief. Bound together with strips of brown; Bound together with strips of every day-brown, Bound together with the every-day brown of every-day duty. Adelaide Hammond

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 faces.it 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
