The Abbot Circle 192 FRANCES ANN MCCARTHY " Frances Ann " Duluth, Minn. Smith One year Honor Roll " All good things come in small packages. " Frances Ann is another of our wild and woolly westerners. She ' s just one more proof of western ability, and we feel that our class has been benefited by her coming. 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. We think that she has become a twin since she came to Abbot. Aren ' t she and Connie just inseparable? It is true that they are room- mates, but that doesn ' t always follow! CONSTANCE MOORE TWICHELL ' ' Connie " New Britain, Conn. Wellesley One year Honor Roll Arm Band Odeon " A good name is better than precious oint- ment. " Well, if here isn ' t Connie — another of our well known Twichells! Honestly, we just wouldn ' t know what to do without one! She can do everything from math to English, too — in fact, we know that if her name should be missing from the honor roll (and we ' re quite sure it never would) the list would rise up in protest right in Miss Bailey ' s hands, and she couldn ' t read another name till she ' d added Connie ' s. She can ski, too, thanks to Intervale — just ask Frances Ann! 37

The Abbot Circle 1924 0nt §ear trte ELISABETH KNIGHT BARSS " Barss " Windsor, Connecticut Mt. Holyoke One year Honor Roll Philomatheia Senior Play French Play " Her pure and eloquent blood spoke in her cheeks. " " Barss " is the girl who came to us right from Loomis and she is one of those clever girls who are called " one-year girls. " In spite of the fact that she was only with us one year, she gained a warm corner in the hearts of all and made a mark for herself by getting elected to " Philo- matheia " . 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. At Intervale she gained fame through her skiing which was truly remarkable! MARY HARVEY " Pete " Chicago, Illinois University of Chicago One year Odeon Fidelio Senior Play Honor Roll Entertainment Committee Class Hockey Team " Good and true, and jolly too. " It ' s Mary Harvey who gets such high marks. It ' s Mary Harvey who is the shining light in most any class. 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. Isn ' t this quite a rep to have to live up to? 36
