The Abbot Circle 1924 istorp as tubteb in 1935 It was bedtime — Mary Ellen, an adorable child with blue eyes and golden curls, said her prayers, and scrambled into bed, awaiting her mother ' s goodnight kiss. " 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.

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
