H. Smith College Two years Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 Baseball Numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 " Music can touch beyond all else The soul that loves it best. " When there ' s fun to be had you don ' t have to look far for Dottie. She lived in Sherman cottage last year and that ' s all I ' ll say except that if you want a good recipe for making fudge just ask Dottie. Better make fudge before " lights out " after this, Dot. Fudge making is a mere detail in her life compared with her musical ability. We hope she will continue with her music for we are planning on our Dottie being famous. DOROTHY ELECTA BARRINGER 11 Dottie " Canandaigua, N. Y. Syracuse Three years Hockey Numerals ' 23, 24 English V Play ' 23 Class Treasurer ' 22 " The only way to have a friend is to be one " " Say, did you hear — ? " Then there is much whispering together and all the latest gossip is transferred to the newest-comer. If you want to learn news just ask Dottie. She knows! She certainly does have a h ard time keeping her room-mate on the straight and narrow path. — Especially about bobbed hair! Dottie is going to Syracuse next year too. We know she ' ll make a success there because she knows just how to be a good friend. 14 r h e Abbot C i r c 1 19 24 LAURA PHILBRICK BLISS " Laurie " Burlington, Vermont University of Vermont Two years Arm Band ' 22 Clock Golf ' 23 Courant Board ' 23, ' 24 Bible Group Leader ' 24 Honor Roll ' 24 " Knowledge comes of learning well-retained " Cover up all of Laura ' s picture except the mouth, and could we fail to know her? But that ' s not the important part, — at least to us! Ask the College English class if Laura can write stories. Look in the Courant for samples of all her writings. Laura played Clock Golf for us on Bradford Day, and it ' s just like a lesson to watch her. And Clock Golf is not the only game she plays. If you are somewhat unexperienced in bridge, play with her, not against her! Laura is versatile and very lovable. PRISCILLA BRADLEY " Pris " Hartford, Conn. Art School Four years Fidelio ' 22 Q. E.

" Squeak, Squeak, Giggle, He-Haw! Here comes Pris. Could anyone doubt that? Never! There is a shirt-waist string, and here a hairpin falling out. Who is that? Pris! She ' s in the " A " Society, Q. E. D., Senior Play; is on the Student Council, Advisory Board, — Say is there anything she isn ' t in? 77 c A b b o t C i r cle 10 24 ELIZABETH KITTREDGE BRAGG " Betty " Portland, Maine Art School Two years Vice-President of A.

' 24 Chairman of Calendar Committee ' 24 " We must laugh before we are happy. " Giggle giggle! I wonder who that can be? It ' s not very hard to guess. That ' s Betty Bragg. How many times a day do we hear Betty ' s laugh run up and down the scale! But there is a great deal more to Betty than that. She can draw and sketch like " a real one " . Does she act? Think of the Senior Play!! POLLY ETHEL BULLARD " Pol " Elmira, N. Y. Smith Three years Student Government President ' 24 Fidelio ' 23, 24 Honor A President of Class ' 22 Hockey Team ' 24 Hockey Numerals ' 22, ' 23, ' 24 Arm Band ' 23 Glee Club ' 21 Northfield Delegate ' 23 A Society ' 23 Entertainment Committee ' 21 Honor Roll ' 24 " To know her is to love her. " Polly is our dignified President of Stu. G. She doesn ' t have such a hard job to keep us all good, because we like to behave for her. Pol is another one of our athletes, and plays hockey as though her life depended on the winning of the game. Pol has ambitions, but will she ever get to Ellis Island? 16 The Abbot Circle 1924 MARGARET BUSH " Peggy " Essex Fells, New Jersey Wellesley Two years Arm Band ' 23 Basketball Numerals ' 23, ' 24 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24 Basketball Team ' 24 " A " Society ' 24 Q. E. D. ' 24 Bible Group Leader ' 24 A. A. A. Treasurer ' 24 Senior Play ' 24 " There is great ability in knowing how to conceal one ' s ability. " Peg is one of our numerous athletes. She can do almost everything. We know because we saw her impersonating Ben Hur at Intervale, on the toboggan slide. Peg is a fine all-around girl, and can she laugh?! The rashest thing she has yet done is bob her hair!! Peg is chuck full of pep when it comes to fun, and determination when it comes to studies! NANCY CHAMBERLIN " Hefty " Windsor, Connecticut Wellesley Two years Class Book Board Arm Band ' 23 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 Honor Roll ' 24 Spanish Play ' 24 French Play ' 2 4 " Thumping, and plumping Bumping, and jumping. " Will we ever forget " Hefty " in Math class? I don ' t believe it ! When to our great delight and Miss Kelsey ' s chagrin, she would wave the pointer wildly over her head, trying in vain to explain her problem. What contortions " Hefty " did have to make to get into her clothes going down to breakfast! Her favorite haunt was the tea-room where she would indulge — -extrava- gant creature — in a cup of black coffee; but very reducing, eh " Hefty " ? T h e A b b o t C ir c I e 1924 LILA CLEVENGER Brookline, Mass. Smith Two years Basketball Team ' 23, ' 24 Arm Band ' 23 Basketball Numerals ' 23, ' 24 " A " Society ' 23, ' 24 Honor Roll ' 24 Captain of Basketball ' 24 " You are born to success and will achieve it. " What will the school do without Lila and Bobby? That grinning pair will be sadly missed. Lila will be missed in sports too, for there never was such a basketball player. We feel sure she could make a basket standing on one ear, she ' s so in the habit of making them. Judging from her facial expression during exams, Lila doesn ' t take them quite as easily. However, she is successful in them as in everything else she attempts. MARGARET COBURN COLBY " Peg " Claremont, N. H. Smith Two years Courant Board ' 23, ' 24 Baseball Numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Fidelio ' 24 Honor Roll ' 24 Student Council Secretary ' 24 " Whatever anyone does or says, I must be good. " " Peg " has surely lived up to her motto this year. In fact none of the " Preps " suspect that last year she played the leading part in all those fudge and pancake parties over in Sherman. We have heard she is a wonderful cook and would like to prove it; but alas! Stu. ( . has ended her escapades. And how " Peg " can ski! We discovered that at Intervale. Indeed " Peg " is one of the best all-round sports we know. The Abbot Circle 1924 ELSIE DRAPER Canton, Mass. The Garland School Three years Class Treasurer ' 22 Class Vice-President ' 23 Class Secretary ' 24 Bible Group Leader ' 24 Hockey Numerals ' 24 Senior Mid Play ' 23 Entertainment Committee ' 24 Arm Band ' 22 " But Art, O man, is thine alone. " " That red-headed gal " — yes it ' s Elsie; but we all like red hair even if she doesn ' t. Her hair is somehow always waved, even in stormy weather. You ' d almost believe it natural if you didn ' t live on her corridor and see her continually armed with her curling iron. Elsie is very deceptive with her calm blue eyes and angelic expression, but if you will just visit at Scituate in the summer, you ' ll find she ' s one of the liveliest there. PRISCILLA WARREN DRAPER " Scilla " " Pris " Canton, Mass. The Garland School Three years Croquet ' 24 Captain of Croquet ' 24 Arm Band ' 22 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 " I chatter — chatter as I go. " Whenever you feel blue, go to see " Pris " . Whether it ' s turtles, or a letter from Eddy, or goldfish in a cracked bowl held together by " Pris ' s " favorite " Beeman ' s " , you ' re always entertained. There was always a noise from " Pris ' s " room up on old fourth floor — but then that was to be expected. Though even from room 22 we occasionally hear wild noises. That jazz whistle has somewhat replaced the " uke " . We don ' t know whether to be glad or sorry. And " Scilla " , how about monkey fur on women ' s dresses? 19 The Abbot Circle 1924 HELEN C. EPLER ' ' Eppie ' ' West Boylston, Mass. Two years Student Council ' 24 Vice-President A. A. A. Basketball Numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Class Book Board ' 24 " Good humor is always a success. " That minister ' s daughter! Enter Helen. Little naive Helen with her quiet, simple and unassuming manner, her sweet smile, portraying absolute innocence. Exit Helen. Enter Eppie, the clown, or " funny " girl. We can never forget Eppie as the ardent feathered lover of the fourth floor corridor stunt, as the clever imper- sonation of " Chick " , or as the chief mourner for the deceased turtle; and her Sunday night talks never failed to inspire some poor failing souls and send them on their way rejoicing. The evening serenade on the fourth floor was never quite complete until Eppie ' s melodious voice blended and soared above the rest. Eppie will always claim a big place in our hearts. RUTH JOSEPHINE FLATHER Nashua, N. H. Three years Q. E. D. ' 23, President ' 24 Eidelio ' 23 Baseball Numerals ' 22 Advisory Board ' 23 Hockey Numerals ' 21, ' 22, ' 2i " And still her tongue ran on. " " O — o — o-o — . Who ' s got those tubs now. And I jumped out of a warm bed just to come down and get them! " Too bad, Flather — Better try getting up at 6.00 o ' clock tomorrow morning. About the only thing that worries this flighty-headed person is math, and yet with that new compass, Ruth, you really ought to be able to get " A " in every Monday Test. 20 The Abbot Circle 1924 CAROLINE BATES HALL ' ' Carol ' ' Plymouth, Mass. Music Conservatory Two years Senior Play ' 24 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 English V Play ' 23 " He does much who does a thing well. " " Carol Hall " did some one say? Ah yes! if you want a soloist or even an accompanist, just call on Carol. She can do both to perfection and is always willing to help you out. And we also hear that Carol is quite popular — how ' bout those Andover callers and all those letters that come in ' most every mail? And did you see Carol in the Senior play? If so, you know that music isn ' t her only strong point for everyone was most enthusiastic about " Miss Barbara Pennymint. " DOROTHY MAY HALLETT ' ' Bobbie ' ' Bangor, Maine Two years Fidelio ' 23, Secretary ' 24 Hockey Team ' 24 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24 " A " Society ' 24 Calendar Committee ' 24 " Could I love less, I ' d be happier. " " Bobbie " is the one who has such a lovely voice and is so full of pep — and she ' s gay and cheerful too. And can she play hockey? Why of course — she ' s from " Bangoah " . She ' s always on the watch to guard that goal; and she ' s always ready for some fun! We wonder how she happened to be called " Bobbie " — can anyone enlighten us? But no — we ' ll spare her blushes this time. Next year, Bobbie ' s going to be in Boston. Bangor is all right but when one ' s namesake is in Boston, Boston goes it one better. 21 T h e A bb o t Circle 19 24 ADELAIDE PEARSON HAMMOND " Almond " Shrewsbury, Mass. Radcliffe Two years Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24 Courant ' 24 Odeon ' 23, President ' 24 Arm Band ' 23, ' 24 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 " My mind is my kingdom. " Enter " Almond " — another renowned mem- ber of our illustrious class. Adelaide is our Odeon president and she ' s on Courant board too — for her strong point is anything along the literary line. And she ' s always ready with a bit of helpful information at the critical moment. Not only do we hear her fame now but sometime in the near future we ' ll be hearing of Adelaide as an " architectress " — perhaps she ' ll draw the plans of a new Abbot dormitory some day — without squeaky floors — who knows? ELIZABETH HARRINGTON " Betty " Andover, Mass. Skidmore Four years Student Government ' 23, ' 24 Honor Roll ' 22 Arm Band ' 21 Class President ' 21 Baseball Numerals ' 23 Senior Play ' 24 " She ' s pretty to walk with, witty to talk with And pleasant to think of too. " Well, how ' s Betty — just as gay and vivacious as ever — and athletic, too. When Betty ' s at the bat, it ' s a case of watch out, you ' d hardly believe that she could get around the diamond so fast without wings, perhaps she has ' em tucked away somewhere. Betty lives on the Hill, too — we wish that we all could live where she does, and go to all the Proms and things, but — such is our fate! And when Betty acts, well, I ' m sure that we all agree that she ' s just the best little heroine ever! 22 The Abbot Circle 19 24 KATHERINE H. HART " Kay " Chelsea, Mass. Secretarial School Two years Fidelio ' 24 Arm Band ' 23 Croquet ' 23, ' 24 Arm Bar ' 24 " A merry Hart maketh a cheerful countenance. " " Katherine Hart, you ' re a wonder. " Tell us how do you play croquet? Kay just looks at the ball, smiles, and presto — there it goes! Way down to the other end of the field, hitting Brad- ford ' s ball with a bounce that means she ' s out to win. And Kay ' s laugh — whew. She showed us a fine sample of it the other night. Between her and Hefty the whole dining-room was disgraced one night. But when Kay is by herself and not under such bad influences, she ' s an awfully nice quiet girl — . RUTH TALBOT HAWLEY " Hawley " Baldwinsville, Mass. Smith Two years Class Book Board ' 24 Advisory Board ' 24 Arm Band ' 23 Honor Roll ' 23 " In the jetty curls, ten thousand cupids play. " We ' ve heard that there was once a song about a girl who, came along and stole all hearts away, and her name was — Ruth, of course! We wonder why she doesn ' t tell the author ' s name, ' cause of course he just must have written it to her — we ' re not quite so easily fooled! And with the " Jolly " , too — well, doesn ' t she make you think of a Christmas girl on the cover of a December magazine? Ruth can do math. Why, her eyes fairly twinkle on Monday morn- ings! We think her bobbed hair ' s a great suc- cess, if only we all could have a " permanent " like hers! 23 The Abbot Circle 1924 ALICE HOBART " Allie " Boston, Mass. Two years Q. E. D. ' 23, ' 24 Bible Group Leader ' 24 " Steadiness is the foundation of all virtue. " Alice skates divinely, Alice rides expertly, who wouldn ' t be satisfied with these accomplish- ments? But those are just two of the many things Alice can do. Q. E. D. would dissolve P. D. Q. if Allie were not one of its main sup- ports. You ought to hear her tell stories. We recommend that you write a book, Allie, called " How to Improve One ' s Memory by One Eve- ning with Me, " because you surely can unravel the " yearns " . ELEANORE ARGERSINGER IRELAND " Elly " Johnstown, New York The Katharine Gibbs School Four years Arm Band ' 20 Bible Group Leader ' 23 Arm Bar ' 23 Fidelio ' 23 Northfield Delegate ' 23 Program Committee ' 24 (A. C. A.) " Her mode4t manner and graceful air Show her wise and good as she is fair. " Well, if here isn ' t one of the well known com- bination of rooms 26-28 — but — what ' s in a name? In spite of the orange curtains amid green rugs, couch covers, and pillows, Eleanore is a true bonny lassie all the same. As to her special hobby — well, it ' s hard to tell — but we ' ve watched her when the mail comes in — " Oh, it ' s from Fort Plain! " We wonder why she has taken Household Science for so long when she doesn ' t like to cook — and why she doesn ' t bob her bonny locks again — but, of course — she ' s going to Katharine Gibbs next year — so we ' ll have to wait! 24 The Abbot Circle 19 24 HELEN KEATING " Keats " Mansfield, Ohio Two years Class President ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Entertainment Committee Chairman ' 24 Basketball Numerals ' 23 Conrant Board ' 23, ' 24 Fidelio ' 23 Senior Mid Play ' 23 Bible Group Leader ' 24 Senior Play ' 24 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24 Author English V Play ' 24 A. D. S. ' 24 " ' Tis no task for some to shine. " Here, there and everywhere. That ' s our well- known Keats — Is there anything she can ' t do? She ' s chairman of the entertainment com. and looks after all our parties where we have such a good time. And now she has written that darling play — we all loved it so, and were very much relieved to know that everything turned out happily after all. Keats hasn ' t any special talent she ' s such a jack of all trades. And even if we do get somewhat envious of her at times we all love her just the same. RUTH HUBBARD KELLEY " Ruthie " , " Scoops " Newton Highlands, Mass. The Katharine Gibbs School Three years Arm Band ' 21 Fidelio ' 24 Bible Group Leader ' 24 Class Book Board ' 24 Arm Bar ' 23 Author of English V Play ' 23 " She is gifted with genius that knoweth much of natural talent. " Ruth is one of our playwrights. We expect to see her name in " Who ' s Who " first of any of us. We ' ve been wondering how it is her room smells so of tobacco. Does a room in Dartmouth smell of the pines at Intervale. And then there ' s " Bevo " . Bevo may be a drink to some of us but to Ruth—! Nuf said! 25 The Abbot Circle 19 24 MARION KING ' ' Men ' ' Janesville, Wisconsin Two years Class Treasurer ' 23 Numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Spanish Play ' 23 Calendar Committee ' 24 " A merry heart goes all the day. " What is that funny little rumble in the back of the room? Men laughing of course! The queer thing about it is we always want to laugh, too, when we hear her giggle because it ' s so conta- gious. With " Shryock ' s " jokes and Men ' s giggles it ' s a wonder room forty-nine is ' ever quiet! Then that funny little nose, it just symbolizes Men; she is so chipper and cheerful we ' re proud to have her in our class. BARBARA ANTOINETTE LOOMER " Bob " Ballardvale, Mass. Wheaton Two years " Her steady soul preserves her fame In good and evil times the same. " Who is the girl who has that stunning brown car? Barbara, of course! You know when to use it, too, don ' t you Barbara? How about Bradford Day? We sure all got a thrill when we saw our big Abbot banner on your car in Haver- hill. Some of us would have had to ride on the trolley-car if it hadn ' t been for you. And did you ski, toboggan, and snowshoe with the rest of us at Intervale? We ' ll say you did! Never mind if you never get to class meetings on time, Barbara, we know your heart is in the right place. 26 The Abbot Circle 1924 MARGARET MARY MacDONALD " Peggy " Duluth, Minnesota Smith Four years Student Council ' 23, ' 24 Senior Mid Play ' 23 Advisory Board ' 22, ' 23 " A " Society ' 23, ' 24 Senior Play Business Manager Senior Class President Q.

C. A. ' 23 " Her value is much more than 1 can tell. " Is there anyone who has not heard of our Peggy Mac? The girl who lives on third floor front? She ' s the one whom everyone likes and who enters into sports with such vim. And as class president, too — why, she just " can ' t be beat! " We wonder what ' 24 would do with- out our Peggy. MARGARET AYRES McKEE " Peggy " Paterson, N. J. Three years Katharine Gibbs School Senior Play ' 24 Hockey Team ' 24 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24 Advisory Board ' 23 Baseball Numerals ' 23 A. C. A. Treasurer ' 23 Calendar Committee ' 24 " A " Society ' 24 " Then she will talk! Ye gods, how she will talk! ' ' " Oh, I know it — Wait a second! " That is only Peggy speaking to Miss Bailey or Miss Howey. Miss Bailey and Miss Howey will probably not rush away before you ' ve finished, Peggy. We ' ve been sort of wondering, too, how it is you get so well supplied with pencils, and letters! Is it another case of saying, " Let George do it! " 27 The Abbot Circle 19 24 ELSIE MAE PHILLIPS ' ' Else " Southwest Harbor, Me. Wellesley Three years Advisory Board ' 23 Arm Band ' 24 English V Play ' 23 Calendar Committee ' 24 " True to her word, her work, her friends. " What, Elsie, another " A " in math? You ought to be spanked; you bad child, always getting " A ' s " when the rest of us poor mortals are working our heads off and only succeed in getting " B ' s " . We ' d sort of like to acquire the habit. Can ' t you show us how? Yet that ' s you all over, Elsie. You don ' t say much but you walk out of those Monday Algebra exams first just the same. But in spite of this we don ' t blame Ruth for liking to be with you so much. RUTH ADA PRITCHARD Andover, Mass. Skidmore College Three years Class Vice-President ' 22 Arm Band ' 22 Basketball Team ' 22, ' 23, ' 24 Senior Play ' 24 Basketball Numerals ' 22, ' 23, ' 24 Odeon ' 24 " A " Society ' 22, ' 23, ' 24 Spanish Play ' 23 Student Government ' 23 " One man in his time plays many parts. " Ruth! Visions of a tall, slender figure in a palm beach suit. Remember our dashing hero in the Spanish Play? That was Ruth — even to the white canvas shoes. Undreamed of talent was discovered when she played the violin in the Senior Play, merely another accomplishment of hers. But either as a Spanish senor or a bashful violinist she took her part equally well. Basket- ball? V ' oughter see her play. She ' s here — she ' s there — where? Everywhere on the field. Wonderful! Nuf sed! is The Abbot Circle 19 24 ELEANOR MARIE ROBBINS " Pat " Bay Shore, Long Island, N. Y. Syracuse President of A. A. A.

" Can you imagine Abbot without Pat? We most certainly cannot ever want to. She ' s one of Abbot ' s staunch pillars. " Five years isn ' t very long in a place you love, " says Pat and we agree with her. She ' s a wonder when it comes to hockey and most everything else. Just take a look around her room and see all her trophies — pictures as well. She ' s an animated, enthusiastic, effervescing, peppy bit of humanity. She leads us in everything, songs, dance, yelling — sh! you ' d never guess it — she ' s our cheer leader! GENEVRA CAROLINE RUMFORD " Gene " Wilmington, Delaware Two years Arm Band ' 24 Senior Mid Play ' 23 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 Bible Group Leader Senior Play ' 24 Author of English V Play ' 24 " Nothing is impossible to industry. " Genevra reminds us of the tortoise in the story of the " Hare and the Tortoise. " She has a sort of Southern slowness about her but she sure gets there just the same. She is another of our class playwrights! And she not only writes plays but she acts in them. As for those marks she gets in all our difficult classes she makes us all envious. T h e A b b at Circle 1924 LAURA SCUDDER " Scud " New Brunswick, N. J. Oberlin One and one-half years Arm Band ' 23 Fidelio ' 24 " A " Society ' 24 Tennis Team ' 23 Odeon ' 24 Doubles Tennis Champion " With her whole heart ' s welcome in her smile. " Hi! There ' s Laura! Can she play tennis? Well, you should have seen her Bradford Day! She certainly showed those Bradford girls what good tennis is! We ' ve been deeply interested in Laura ' s hair, too. Why, she does it up now with the utmost ease and comfort. She ' ll be sitting on it, soon. And those eyes! My goodness, they ' re so big and brown and bright, you ' d think they were just full of electricity! MADELYN SHEPARD " Mad " , " Shep " Williamantic, Conn. Mount Holyoke Two years Arm Band ' 23 Arm Bar ' 24 Posture Committee ' 24 " Daughter of the gods, divinely tall, and most divinely fair.

Next we discover you are an artist, that you decorate everything from pillow cases to door knockers. And how about those vases you told Miss Bailey you made? Susie loves to " wal- low " . At Intervale she wallowed so we thought she ' d soon be a shadow and were getting worried.

If you don ' t believe it, ask someone who saw her tearing around the field on Bradford Day. Carol must be a mighty good actress because last year she was the heroine of our class play, and, strange as it may seem, she is the hero this year.

She also played the part of the Rev. Jacob Sternroyd, D.D., F. S. A., in the Senior play and a very good " reverend sir " did she make.

In fact you could go on thusly for quite some time and still not have told all that Mary Harvey can do. Not only is she very clever in studies and the like but her debut on the stage was most successful as you all know. And she ' s almost the best-natured girl in school. Besides all this she has the fame of being the one and only girl at Abbot who succeeded in breaking the ice at Pomp ' s Pond this year.

At Intervale she skied and slid around twice as fast as any of the rest of us, but that ' s because she is so small. You know, she ' s the baby of our class in stature.

" Goodnight, mama, " she whispered. " Kiss Daddy for me, won ' t you? " " Goodnight, darling, " replied her mother. " Yes, I will, " and after turning out the light, she left the room. " Cooh, Mama, you forgot somepin! Honest, Mama — you forgot to put on my — my earphone. " " Oh, I ' m sorry, dear. Mother can ' t seem to remember them, can she? But you know, when I was a girl, I had to go to school, instead of learning all my lessons while I was asleep, as you do. We used to talk about those little ear- phones in our psychology class, but we never thought that our baby daughter would be using them, did we dear? There! Is that all right? ' ' " Yes, Mama. It talked all about the Great War last night, and Pershing, ' neverything. Do you member him, too? " " Yes, dear, goodnight! " " Goodnight, mama! " (The voice): Tonight you are to hear the history of the class of 1924 at Abbot Academy. Because the members of this class so distinguished themselves, their name and fame has gone down in Keating ' s " History for Tiny Tots. " In the year 1919, two theories were prominent among a tribe of people who were known as Preps, distinguished by the extreme novelty of long hair, which was done in pigtails, a style common to that period. The first theory was: ■ — 1) That the ice box, located on the second floor of Draper Hall, was ex- clusively the property of Miss K. R. Kelsey, used for the storage of her Eskimo pies. 2) That the elevator was used nightly by Miss Bailey, who went on pil- grimages to the fourth floor, to kiss her youthful charges goodnight. The year 1920 was not so eventful as those which followed, so we shall hasten on to the more important parts. In the following year, the members of the class were known to the world at large as Junior Mids. At their first class meeting, Marjorie Moon was elected president, and at this time, Dartmouth green was chosen for the class color, much to the secret delight of several members. The underlying idea is too deep to be discussed at this point. In June of that year, Rally night was held, a date of much 40 The Abbot Circle 19 24 importance in the history of Abbot. All members wore class colors and marched about a large circular spot of ground known as the Circle. Great excitement ensued when men from the neighboring institution of Andover marched in to celebrate the winning of a famous battle with Exeter. The event was distin- guished by white uniforms and torchlights. October 9, 1922. Date of Senior-Mid picnic. Members journeyed to the land of Pomp, where, beside a famous body of water, the ceremony of toasting marshmallows and hot dogs was held. January 3, 1923. A date of great importance. Members entertained men who journeyed on the Great Hill to a tea dance. The consternation of the younger classes was most apparent at this period. June 12, 1923. Senior class presented ' 24 with spade. September 19, 1924. Members returned for their Senior year, and an at- mosphere of great dignity (?) was prevalent at this period. Peggy MacDonald was president of the class. October 2, 1924. A gathering known as the Senior picnic was held at a beautiful spot many miles from school. Strange looking conveyances carried the members to and from the meeting place, and various ceremonies were conducted. It should be noted here that the group returned by moonlight, which was con- sidered a great feat, for they seldom braved the danger of the night. February 4, 1924. Group migrated to the Great Northland called Intervale, where sports were engaged in with much enthusiasm. Although the members became greatly fatigued, it is noticed that even now, when one of them perceives a flake of snow, the name Intervale is recalled with great agility. March 6. Class received Senior rings, which were sacred to them as bands of friendship between one another and all previous graduates. March 11. Members presented a play known as " Pomander Walk " , to which people journeyed from far lands, in order that they might see the remark- able talents which the class possessed. May 10. One of the greatest ceremonies in history took place, namely the Abbot Prom. The event was distinguished and crowned with glory by a group of undergraduates who were seated in the spacious organ loft of Davis Hall. June 10. Commencement. Members received rolls of parchment with strange writing thereon, known as diplomas, and soon afterward the group separated to all parts of the world. Their history, however, does not stop with this event, for they distinguished themselves in many ways thereafter, and the name and fame of the class of 1924 will never perish.

Beefsteak for breakfast, coffee at night, When you go to Intervale, you ' ll know we are right! Intervale without the Seniors Is like a meal without the eats Is like a mail without a letter Is like a cook-book without receipts Is like Wednesday without a roll Is like a stocking without a hole But there ' s one thing worse in this universe. And that ' s the Seniors, we say the Seniors, We mean the Seniors without Intervale! Sure, a little bit of Heaven Fell from out the sky one day And it nestled in New Hampshire Not so many miles away And when the angels found it Sure, it looked so sweet and fair, They said " Suppose we leave it For it is so peaceful there. " So, they sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pine trees grow. They ' re the finest ones that can be found No matter where you go. And they placed the mountains round it Just to keep away the gale And when they had it finished Sure, they called it Intervale! 48 The Abbot Circle 19 24 Would you like to hear the story Of a day at Intervale? It ' s the place you know the Seniors go to ski and slide and trail. It ' s way up in the mountains and It ' s buried deep in snow, And it ' s Oh So Cold There Way up at Intervale. W T e go to bed so late at night And sleep the whole night through We get up late next morning, don ' t You wish that you could too?

We were all waiting expectantly for the next day, but when morning came it held only a rainy day and classes for us. After being postponed a second time because of bad weather, Bradford Day really came on the fourteenth. We arrived at Bradford in high spirits, with everyone determined to do her best. When we had sung our greeting song, we all went to the tennis courts. Owing to Elizabeth Burtnett ' s illness, Lucie Locker substituted in the singles. She certainly played a remarkable game and came up in the second set, following Abbot ' s custom, although she lost by a score of 0-6, 4-6. In doubles Betty Lincoln, substituting for Doris von Culin, and Laura Scudder won by a score of 6-0, 6-4. After the honors of tennis had been evenly divided, the croquet match was played. Despite the skill of our team, the Collieson sisters won with the utmost ease. It seemed miraculous for any one to play the way they did. By this time we were all very ready and eager for luncheon. We felt more enthusiastic than ever after it and sang our songs with the greatest fervor. Before we were tired of singing it was time for clock golf to be played, so we hurried out to watch it. The nearness of Bradford ' s mascot, a goat with a gold ribbon ' round its neck, we are sure helped Bradford to win. We then rushed to the hockey field. There the closest, and perhaps the most exciting match of the day took place, with Bradford coming out victorious with just one goal more. Last, but far from least, was the basketball game. It was a glorious, wonderful one. We had never seen our team play so well throughout the fall and we were certainly proud of it. The victory of 36-14 made us so happy that we didn ' t mind losing the day so much. Now it was time to leave. When we had sung our good-bye song, we scram- bled into our cars, each one thinking what a great day it had been and what great girls Bradford girls were. 68 The Abbot Circl 1924 $H . W " 8 K H i 1 !

Such is Pomander Walk, a little suburb of London that has its share of joys and sorrows, humor and pathos. When Act I opens Sir Peter Antrobus, king of the walk, and Mr. Brooke- Hoskyn, " a gentleman of distinction, " are playing quoits under the elm. The game finished, Mrs. Poskett, an elderly widow of youthful actions, Mr. Pringle, a violinist, also Misses Ruth and Barbara Pennymint, two rather elderly sisters, join in a friendly chat. Into this group comes Madame Lachesnais and her daughter Marjolaine, preceded by the maid, Nanette, on their way to market. The Eyesore, the Walk ' s disgrace, is seen to throw away his pipe which, in the horrified silence that follows, is picked up by the Reverend Doctor Sternroyd who believes it to be an early Elizabethan tobacco pipe. No sooner has he left than the Honorable Caroline Thring appears to " give advice and distribute alms. " The next arrival is Lord Otford who has come to consult Sir Peter about his son, Jack Sayle, whom he wishes to have marry Caroline Thring. Sir Peter agrees to try to influence Jack about the matter. As Sir Peter and Lord Otford leave, Marjolaine seats herself under the elm and is interrupted by a young man, who introduces himself as Jack Sayle. Marjolaine offers him her mother ' s claret to 76 The Abbot .Circle 1924 quench his thirst and their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of The Muffin Man, making escape impossible as the entire Walk is awake. Jack meets Sir Peter who recognizes him and presents him to M adame Lachesnais who faints at hearing the name, Jack Sayle. At the beginning of Act II in a monologue by Brooke-Hoskyn to his wife we learn he has written to Lord Otford telling him of Jack ' s visit. Madame learns from her daughter that she is in love with Jack, the son of the Lord Otford Mad- ame loved years ago, and makes her promise to forget him. Lord Otford visits the Admiral in a towering rage. He has received an anonymous letter telling of Jack ' s visit to the Walk on Saturday and of his affair with Marjolaine. Sir Peter leaves Lord Otford sitting in the gazebo where Madame encounters him. The cool conversation terminates in the discovery by Lord Otford that Madame is the Lucy Pryor he loved. Jack Sayle returns disguised as the Eyesore and a charm- ing love scene ensues between Marjolaine and Jack presenting the puzzle as to how they are to be married. Dr. Sternroyd appears at the psychological moment and is persuaded to get them the desired license. At this point the Eyesore angrily throws Sempronius, the precious cat of Mrs. Poskett ' s, into the river for eating his fish. Sir Peter rescues him and Mrs. Poskett falling on his neck loudly acclaims him her " hero " . Act III displays Pomander Walk, at its best, having tea. Sir Peter is prac- tically ignored, Mrs. Poskett in a tearful condition, and even a song from Barbara fails to bring back the customary happiness. Mrs. Poskett, with the help of Jim, " the son of a sea cook, " servant to the Admiral, makes her final attempt to " get her Peter. " She succeeds. Lord Otford returns wishing to see Madame Lachesnais and the reconciliation ends happily with future prospects of their own marriage and that of Marjolaine and Jack. The curtain falls with the announce- ment of the new arrival of Brooke-Hoskyn ' s son. The Abbot Circle 19 24 | IE 1 - - ' -3 n ■ .» — — W M , . .. ■ : QL )t Jfar ump nntebs All her life Princess Von Yeldern had been kept away from the world in a lonely palace. Her life was an unhappy one. She was destined to marry an old German count, many years her senior, and about whom she cared nothing. One day the princess stopped at a little mountain inn to pass the afternoon quietly and obscurely with her guardian. After she had been sent to bed, she crept down to the veranda to get some air. She met there a young poet who was gazing through a telescope in search of his far away Princess. The two commenced a conversation in which the princess took a great delight since she was never allowed to converse with people in such an unconventional way. The poet told her his secret, that he was madly in love with a princess; a real princess! Every day he saw her in her window in her lonely, isolated palace by gazing through this telescope. The young man, completely ignorant of the identity of his young friend, raved about his princess. Oh! He knows this girl had never known a real true princess as he had. It was very amusing to hear the poet rave, to see the poor astonished girl while the audience knew all the time thai the ideal princess of the poet was only two feet from him. Baroness Von Brack, having discovered that her precious charge was not soundly asleep but missing, came out on the veranda. The Baroness, shocked and terrified, ordered the Princess to go inside and the poet to leave immediately. It was really sad when the two young people were parted for the poet had begun to love the princess for her own sake, and the poor princess had been happy for one of the few times in her life. The Abbot Circle 19 24 ' ®p ' -ffltHL )umb As the curtain slowly rose, we saw before us a laundry, and seated on various chairs, tables, and stools were some of its busy workers. After the first few sentences we knew we were in London. Mrs. Plun, Phyl Yates, told us about the weddin ' s and funerals of all her relations, and the girls talked about their beaus. Soon the conversation turned to Maudie, the poor girl who was working with them. They made fun of her imagination and her shirt. A year or more ago a man had left a shirt there, and Maudie had carefully washed and ironed it each day. While they were talking, Madeleine Howard as Maudie came in. Maudie busied herself with her work and, when asked where she was going on the holiday, and who was going to take her out, had to confess that she had no one. Poor little thing, she was a workhouse orphan, and had never known love and care of any sort. The girls, Celeste and Rose, twitted Maudie about the shirt, and learned that the owner ' s name was Mr ' Orace Germsmith. Maudie wove a tale about him as a fairy prince. The girls refused to believe it, and decided to leave their work for the day. Maudie was left alone, and while working around the laundry, who should come in but our A. D. Estes as Mr ' Orace. After much boasting on the part of the hero, and pleading on that of the heroine, Mr. ' Orace consented to take Maudie out. But she felt that he was ashamed of her. And as her sense of pride would not allow her to accept his invitation, she suddenly refused to go and ' Orace, offended, left. As he went out of the door she sank to the floor in a sobbing heap, all her beautiful hopes dashed to the ground. As the curtain dropped we felt the sense of admiration she had awakened in the hero, but we saw that she could never know of it. 79 The Abbot Circle 19 24 Wi)t Host g ilfe ftat " The Lost Silk Hat " is a one-act comedy with a very subtle and amusing plot. The curtain rises; enter Lois Babcock as the hero. The young man has just quarrelled with his sweetheart and has sworn " to join the Bosnians and die in Africa. " He fi nds that in his haste he has left his silk hat behind him and then follow several amusing incidents resulting from his attempts to find some one to get his hat for him. First enters Mary Simpson as the laborer, but in vain does the young man beg him to enter the house and recover the lost hat. The laborer " doesn ' t like this job " and slouches away. Then comes the clerk, Peggy Wilson, but he too refuses to take any part whatsoever in helping the now frantic hero to recover his hat and he passes on. Now comes Migs Hawkes as the poet with his many flowery and eloquent speeches and he offers gladly to be of assistance if only a suitable plan can be devised. But none of the schemes thought of seem to be of use and so at last, the young man decides that he must get it himself. The poet remon strates profusely but to no avail, for the young man " can not be seen in the streets of London without a hat " and since no one will get it for him, he must get it himself. He enters the house and the poet waits outside to see what will happen next. Soon the labourer, the clerk, and the policeman, Virginia Thompson, come on the stage and are just in time to hear the strains of a duet. The poet declares that " romance is dead " for in his opinion to marry is much less romantic than to go and " die for a hopeless love in Africa. " Htgfjtfjousie 208 By Genevra Rumford David McGregor, lighthouse keeper . . . Elaine Boutwell Bess, his wife ....... Gretchen Vanderschmidt Peterson, an inspector ..... Melinda Judd As the curtain rises, we are confronted by the scene of a small but well-kept interior of a lighthouse, situated in Boston Harbor. The furnishings of the room are rather meager, a table on which there rests an old-fashioned oil lamp, a small fireplace surmounted by a mantel containing a few books, and a few chairs placed about the room add to its atmosphere of comfort. 80 The Abbot Circle 10 2 4 In a low rocker a woman is seated, with her head in her hands. Presently she sighs and walks over to the window, looks out, and returns to her seat beside the table, just as her husband, a jolly-faced sea captain, enters the room. He sees at once that something is wrong, and proceeds to ask his wife what is troubling her. In a few words she tells him how discontented she has become with life at the lighthouse, and how she wants him to resign his position, that they may go to the city. There life would be far more attractive and Dave could secure a much better position — why he might drive a milk team, or even become a brick layer! Although Dave does not approve of the idea, he finally consents, and proceeds to draw up his resignation as keeper of Lighthouse 208. They are interrupted by Mr. Peterson, the inspector, who has come to bring their mail. In the course of the conversation, he learns of their intentions of going to the city, and informs them of a friend of his who would be glad to accept the vacancy. He is, however, very much surprised at their plan, and asks how they are going to get along without the cheerful boom of the sea, which has been a friend to them for so long, and the beauty of their surroundings, which they have always enjoyed. Then Bess thinks of Rover — what will they do without him? And the chickens — why, she just can ' t leave them! Finally they decide that they cannot leave after all, and Mr. Peterson goes out, leaving Dave and Bess looking out of the window, their arms around each other, assured that, after all, there is no place like home. He little ®i tau By Helen Simpson Keating The curtain rises on a charming scene in the home of Bill Martin and his daughter Venda. Breakfast is just over, and as Mr. Martin starts off to business, Venda asks him as a special favor, to bring home a voice record for the new victrola. This makes him very angry, and here the suspense begins. For why should Mr. Martin, who loves to please Venda, so hate singing? But Venda, who has a lovely voice, may not even hum, while doing her household tasks. After Mr. Martin has gone, Venda busies herself with the dishes, until a knock is heard at the door, and in walks Monsieur Courbert, manager of the Golden Peacock, and possessor of a most astonishing French accent. He offers Venda the title role in " Ze Leettle Oiseaux " — a singing and dancing part. She hesitates to sign the contract without consulting her father, but there is to be no time lost, and she starts to sign. However, she does not have time to finish before The Abbot Circle 19 24 Bill Martin comes in. He is furiously angry, and sternly reprimanding Venda, forbids her to take the part. She tries to be cheerful and starts to hum a tune which has been running through her mind. Her father seems to have a particular aversion to that tune. Finally, he is forced to explain that her mother, who left her home and family to sing in grand opera, used to sing it to Venda as a lullaby. Soon, as Venda is dusting, alone in the room, the tune is heard from outside. It grows nearer and nearer, until the door opens and Bianca Martinoli enters. Bill comes in, and the husband and wife recognize each other and explain to Venda. At first he is very angry, but Bianca explains that " home ees best " and the play ends happily, as all plays should. Haragueta Again the talent in the Spanish classes blossomed out. This year they de- lighted us with an amusing comedy entitled Zaragueta. Not many of us really understood the things the characters said to each other, but there is an old saying that " actions speak louder than words. " The story centered around the nephew, Corlos, of an old Spanish family. He had been sent to Madrid to study, and while there he had gotten himself greatly in debt to a certain Zaragueta, a Jewish money lender. Carlos wrote to his aunt and uncle telling them that his health had given out, and that he must have money in order to go to Paris for a necessary operation, and telling them also that he was coming home first. Carlos arrived and with him the Jew. The boy became so scared that he took his cousin Maruja into his confidence. She very easily fooled the old aunt and uncle, and when the deaf Jew came to demand his money, all kinds of misunder- standings arose, making it screamingly funny. Finally Carlos and Zaragueta met. Carlos shut Zaragueta up in a woodshed at the back of the stage. Through the mistakes of every one the aunt and uncle thought that Carlos had become crazy, and that he was shut up in the woodshed. They thought that the best thing to do was to cover him with cold water. This was done, and after much screaming and yelling on the part of Zaragueta, the door of the woodshed was opened, and the wet Jew came out. Carlos confessed and all was satisfactorily explained. 82 The Abbot Circle 19 24 " §iui£ ttgess IrTor etdben " On the eighth of April, some of the students from the German Department gave a very amusing and charming little play called " Giinstiges Vorzeichen " . The story centers around an old German who is very superstitious. Herr Rillberg, as he is called, has a daughter, Karoline, and a niece, Brunhilde, who is also his ward. The father wishes to have Karoline married before she is twenty to some quite well-to-do young man. His friend, Professor Rantenstrauch, tells him that a young friend of his has seen Karoline and wishes to marry her. Herr Holdhans, the suitor, calls to ask formally for Karoline and finds that he had seen and fallen in love with Brunhilde, not Karoline. He finds out, however, to his great relief, that Karoline is in love with a poor man and will not marry him. Then Holdhans is free to ask Brunhilde to marry him. When Herr Rillberg finds out that Hold- hans is going to marry Brunhilde he is, at first, very angry. But at last he is reconciled to the situation and everything ends happily. Sylvia Shapleigh, as Karoline, was just as modest and submissive as a daughter is supposed to be. In contrast, Hildegarde Mittendorff, as Brunhilde, was very lively and coquettish. Gretchen Vanderschmidt made a splendid old, superstitious, polite German father. Herr Holdhans was supposed to be very embarrassed and ill-at-ease in the presence of ladies. Ruth Davies, in this part, made us fully appreciate his many qualms. The lovely German songs gave an additional touch of color to the whole gay evening. l e Jfrenci) Cbentng The long expected " French Evening " was most pleasantly spent on May thirteenth, and the large French Department widely represented. All about McKeen Hall, pretty French Peasant girls in native costumes, and wearing the head dresses of many provinces wended their way between tables selling boutonnieres or light refreshments, while on the stage a few of the best scenes from Moliere ' s " Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme " were played with much " entrain " , succeeded by others from " Monsieur Perrechon " byLabiche et Martin. A short modern sayuete depicting the Christmas difficulties of a young Parisian couple in their gift-giving was also presented. French Rounds, Songs and Fables held the audience captive and elicited warm applause, the while a delightful French atmosphere pervaded the entire evening which was a great artistic and linguistic success. 83 AA jMJ nJZ rud The Abbot Circle 19 24 A is for Abbot whose fame we can tell.
