The Abbot Circle 192 5 Wfje Btarp of a jHemfoer of tfje Cla S of 1925 Apologies to Mrs. Pepys Sept. 1920-June 1921. Did arrive at school betimes feeling very sad and blue, wishing me back home with my family. Was made to feel very insignificant upon being addressed superciliously as a " Prep " by a Senior. Did make many mistakes known as " boners, " such as: (1) Not rising when guests entered the library. (2) Not stepping aside for Faculty and Seniors to go through doors. (3) Not bowing to Miss Bailey for the first week when leaving the dining- room. (4) Did walk on sacred circle and was made to feel decidedly small and minute. (5) Did speak to Jimmy Smith on street, who is from my home town and attends Phillips. Was duly informed that I must not speak to boys " on the hill, " by the president of Stu. G., of whom I was much in awe. I do not understand this, as my mother thinks him a goodly boy. By spring of said year did feel worn out and sadly in need of vacation. In June did travel to Boston with host of chaperons and dispersed to my home town to tell of my year ' s experience and advancement. Sept. 1921-June 1922. Did return to school as a Junior and did greet my school-fellows joyfully. Did feel mighty superior to " new girls, " having advantage of knowing some of the rules. Although did know rules did manage to break several during the year. Was brought before Stu. G. for having feast in bathtub, which seemed to me quite proper. Was placed " on bounds " and did promenade about the circle for one week. Our class did have a picnic at Pomp ' s Pond. Did fall in the water but managed to conceal the fact from the chaperons. Did part from my friends with great grief and wailing in the spring of said year. 29

The Abbot Circle 192 5 Sept. 1922-June 1923. Did arrive in Andover feeling much grown-up — in acknowledgment of which did spend my last half dollar on a taxi. Did talk all night with my friends on our adventures of the summer, suffering for it on the following day by being very hoarse and sleepy. Did feel a certain responsibility as a Junior-Mid and did instruct many Preps and Juniors on the ways of Abbot. Was invited to an Andover Prom by Jimmy Smith, but was unable to go, not being an upper class- man. This did hurt my pride, but I recovered as soon as I was able to see Jimmy every Friday night but for two weeks when I was on restrictions for writing said Jimmy a note. Did leave in June feeling very sad at never seeing the Seniors again. Consoled myself only by remembering that I should be a Senior-Mid next year and not miss them. Sept. 1923-June 1924. School did open as usual. Did arrive with much savoir-faire, not deigning to yell at the sight of old friends. Was very kind to new girls, telling them many strange tales, all of which were not strictly true. Did hold our picnic in the even- ing and Miss Bailey did attend. We did have coffee and I did lie awake all night, not being accustomed to it. Did go to Andover Prom with Jimmy Smith and did smile benignly on the under classmen that did hang over railing to see my dress. Did have many pangs and heart-throbs over mid-year exams, fearing I did flunk Physics as I was kept awake the night before by the sounds of rejoicing on the Hill where Andover did beat Exeter in swimming. Did attend our Prom, dragging Jimmy. Was amused and touched when I noted the under class girls in the organ loft. I did make Jimmy look up and wave, which I did think was big-hearted. Did attend the Senior Mid banquet which I did enjoy immensely. I do think it fortunate that no legs or arms were broken. We did receive the trowel from the Class of ' 24 and did begin to feel our responsibility as Seniors. Did find the speeches very touching at Commencement, and could not refrain a tear. Did part for the summer with many promises to write, and expostulations as to our positions next year. Sept. 1924-June 1925. Did arrive at school in downpour to usher new girls to their rooms. Did spend the entire day consoling weeping new girls, hardly having time to appreciate the front room which I did possess. Miss Bailey did greet me with a kiss which 30
