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 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 " ?

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
