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.

The Abbot Circle 19 GTfje Eose of ppmoutf) Coton A mighty shout! The warwhoops of Indian braves! The reverberation of beaten drums! 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

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.

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
