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
