T110 .flbbof Circle' 1923 1Burtiun at a Iliaisturp In 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 discoyerers. Une 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 classof '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 'A Intervalef' 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. ll Nov. 1918199-Only eight in the class, but although we're a small class in num- bers, our minds are 'most as big as the Seniorsf Four of us got on the Honor Roll. Ll May 1919: 9 - Our elocution class spoke pieces before the school. iYas scared to death but the congratulations afterwards were fine. " f Jct. 1919: A - juniors now. Elected our first officers. A great, exciting occasion! Vhose our class colors and flower, too. 'fNov. 1919: 1- Had our class picnic at Pomps. Hot Dog! Sang songs and walked around the pond. Swell eats. 38
