The Abbot Circle 19 24 JSraMorb Bap The night of the sixth of November, thv re was an air of suppressed excitement throughout the building. 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
