' 26 Advisory Board ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Philomatheia ' 25, ' 26 Class Book Board ' 26 Chairman of Merit Committee ' 26 When Adelaide first came to Abbot, she was so quiet that we didn ' t recognize her capabilities until she started taking care of Cynthia. On the strength of that we made her president of our A. C. A., and what a splendid one she has been! We all take off our hats to you, Adelaide, and at the same time wish we had the brains that lie under yours. We know that sometime you will be given a position right next to Saint Peter, so that you can ring the gong that calls the little angels to pray. BARBARA HARRIET BLOOMFIELD " Barb " Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts Four years Entertainment Committee ' 23 Arm Band ' 25 Class President ' 24 Athletic Council ' 26 Class Cheer Leader ' 24 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Fidelio ' 26 Hockey Team ' 25, ' 26 Spanish Play ' 24, ' 25 " A " Society ' 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Secretary-Treasurer " A " Society ' 25 Posture Honor Roll ' 25 President " A " Society ' 26 Senior Play Captain Hockey ' 26 Class Book Board ' 26 Second Vice-President Student Council ' 26 Everyone was a bromide until Barb came into the world. But who can help being a sulphite when she is around? It can be truthfully said of her: " Laugh, and the world laughs with you. " The third floor front will always echo with her hearty laugh. But taking into consideration Barb ' s real talent, we have overlooked a prom- ising basketball career. For not only can she shoot a basketball into a basket, but a lump of sugar into a full cup of coffee. Unfortunately the basketball season was over when we discovered this hidden talent in Barb ' s complex. 10 The Abbot Circle 1926 1 ANSTISS HOWARD BOWSER " Annie " Simmons Four years President Student Council ' 26 Arm Band ' 23 Class President ' 25 Draper Dramatics ' 24 A. C. A. Treasurer ' 25 French Play ' 24 Student Council ' 24 Advisory Board ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 25 Tennis Team ' 26 Northfield ' 24 Second Hockey Team ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Philomatheia ' 24 25, ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 " A " Society ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 23 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Tea Dance Committee ' 25 " Annie " is so versatile that it is hard to know where to begin. As Stu. G. President she has carried us through a most successful year. We should have suffered badly without her services on the tennis team, and can we ever forget the little costume of orange skirt, middy, black stockings and sneakers that she so faith- fully donned every time she appeared on the courts? Her outstanding gift, however, is her alluring soprano voice, which has held us spell- bound at two big recitals this year. One was at Intervale, where Miss Bailey was guest of honor, and the other in Davis Hall. Both times she was encored amid storms of applause. What a future!! EDITH BULLEN " Edie " Glencoe, Illinois Three years Business Manager Courant ' 25, ' 26 Advisory Board ' 26 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26; President ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 Odeon ' 25, ' 26; President ' 26 Senior Play English V Play ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 26 Edie is one of our most versatile members. Without her, Odeon would indeed be a ship without a rudder, and what would a Courant be, published without one of her poems? She is rather reticent about bringing forth her literary productions, but when one finally appears, it certainly is worth while waiting for. As " Celia " in the Senior Play she made the character lasting in our memories, and we can never forget how darling Edie looked in her little shepherdess costume. Just out of mere curiosity, I am won- dering how many candles were left lighted on your last birthday cake after you had given a lusty blow. We ' re betting on one candle, Edie! 11 The Abbot Circle 1926 f MARION ELIZABETH BURR " Burr " Manchester, Connecticut Wellesley Two years Arm Band ' 26 Though we consider Marion one of our absent- minded friends, that is quite natural, for are not all artists absent-minded? And she has a lot of talent, so it is perfectly justifiable if her mind flies away into the airy regions of dreamy art at times. But she can stay down here sometimes too, when she makes up her mind to it. We have found her very convincing and to the point in her arguments in English class. KATHARINE CLAY " Kay " , " Katie " Methuen, Massachusetts Five years Basketball Numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 26 Vice-President of Class ' 24 A. D. S. ' 26 Student Council ' 23, ' 25 A. D. S. Play ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24 Northfield Delegate ' 24 Advisory Board ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 25, ' 26 Chairman Entertainment Committee ' 26 Kay, our class athlete — what could we pos- sibly do without her? But if you should decide to follow the example of so many athletes and wend your way to Hollywood, as Red Grange did, do put it off until June, Kay! The " Lonely Knight " would miss you so much in choral. But when we get away from the irrelevant and come down to real facts, we unquestioningly recognize Kay as a girl who has done more than her best for Abbot. And we can ' t say anything more about her without adding that she is " divinely tall and most divinely faire. " 12 The Abbot Circle 1926 ALICE MARIS COLE " Coke " Duluth, Minnesota Five years Class Treasurer ' 24 Class Secretary ' 26 Arm Band ' 22, ' 23 Glee Club ' 22 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 " Coke " is another pillar belonging to the little cluster of " five-yearers " ; and what a good, substantial one she is, too! What could our class do without her faithful roll-calling and record keeping? Who was it who took the responsi- bility of the management of our Senior rings, and so painstakingly carried on the tedious business, with all the endless correspondence involved? And who will be missed tremendously when ' 26 has gone? Echo answers: " ' Coke ' . " RUTH LYMAN COPELAND " Cope " Michigan City, Indiana Two years A. D. S. ' 26 Entertainment Committee ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Basketball Numerals ' 25, ' 26 " A " Society ' 25, ' 26 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Basketball Team ' 25, ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 26 English V Play ' 25 Calendar Committee ' 26 Posture Committee ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Class Book Board ' 26 Although she has been at Abbot only two years Cope is among the best loved and most prom- inent girls. Sweet, harmonious sounds from up- stairs in room 53 are always a sure sign that Cope and Perk are at it again — singing as they used to do in Sherman last year. Besides being a singer, Cope is also a great athlete, an actor, and a frequenter of Cambridge. Yes, Orlando, you ' re a fine young fellow. 13 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 GERTRUDE BRESHEAR CRAIK Belize, British Honduras Two years Philomatheia ' 24 (Sec. and Treas. ' 25, ' 26) Class Book Board ' 26 Advisory Board ' 25, ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 English V Play ' 25 When you hear a soft, delightful Southern accent, somewhere in the offing, if you will follow it up you ' ll find Gertrude, oftentimes telling some fascinating tale about Belize to a group of enthusiastic listeners. If you ever want to know anything about Current Events or Euro- pean History, Gertrude ' s the person to ask. Not only does she take admirable, yes admirable care of Ruth, but also acts as our trusty Baby Ben on the third floor front. RUTH COLLEY DEADMAN Wakefield, Massachusetts Two years Fidelio ' 25 Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 " I think sleep will do me more good. " No, this isn ' t Rip Van Winkle, it ' s only Ruth. You can hear these words of wisdom if you come aro und during the cold grey hours of the morn- ing, just before a Psyc. or a History test. This doesn ' t mean that Ruth doesn ' t study, though. Just look at her English for proof of that. Well, Ruth, you say that you haven ' t decided what you are going to do next year? We all know that you can get a recommendation as private secretary anyway. You don ' t believe me? Just ask English V or your roommate. II The Abbot C i r c I 1926 JEAN JOHNSTON DONALD Andover, Massachusetts Spanish Play ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 24, ' 25 Jean is one of Abbot ' s male impersonators. First she appeared as a dashing young Spaniard and then again as an English country fellow. Jean has had a hand also at hockey, where her mighty hits are very dangerous looking. But she is of a gentle nature and not greatly to be feared. s 1 LOUISE CAROLYN DOUGLASS " Weedie " , " Doug " Guilford, Maine Three years Class Secretary ' 24 Vice-President Q.E.D., ' 26 Arm Band ' 24 Student Council ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Second Hockey Team ' 24, ' 25 Fidelio ' 26 Vice-President A. C. A. ' 26 Advisory Board ' 25 Q. E. D. ' 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Doug has such a satisfying personality, which is so characteristic of just Doug, that things don ' t seem quite natural unless she is around. Quiet though she may appear in Room 1, should one happen down on the second floor front after nine o ' clock (and possibly before) one might hear the infectious little giggle, running up and down the scale, reinforced by Flora ' s more substantial roar. Weedie is extremely capable, but the point is to make her think so too. When the latter is accomplished, beware! She may become a Mrs. Napoleon Bonaparte. 15 The Abbot Circle 192 6 RUTH EMELINE FARRINGTON Manchester, New Hampshire Smith Three years Arm Band ' 23, ' 25 Honor Roll ' 24 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Fidelio ' 24, ' 25 Odeon ' 26 Ruth is one of the few in Abbot who has a large vocabulary and uses it correctly. As a sonnet writer, and in fact a writer in general, she has made quite a name for herself. Although she is generally very quiet in English class, she comes out with fine marks, so it must be that she is constantly imbibing knowledge from the wise remarks of the rest of the class. FRANCES LEIGHTON FLAGG " Fonty " Andover, Massachusetts Mt. Holyoke Five years Senior Vice-President Draper Dramatics ' 24, ' 25 Student Council ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 French Play ' 24 " A " Society ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Hockey Team ' 26 A. D. S. ' 25, ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 25 Class President ' 24, ' 25 Arm Band ' 22, ' 24 Junior Glee Club ' 22 Posture Committee ' 24 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Posture Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25 Senior Play Honor Roll ' 22, ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 " Oh my dear! You ' re just wonderful! " Who is there in school that hasn ' t learned to know Fonty by that? Class officer, dramatist, honor roller and songster — she is all of these and what a lot of things besides! Courteous when she ought to be, and jolly when she ought, and a great party-giver too. We Seniors surely have had fun at the Baronial Hall! 16 The Abbot Circle 1926 % EMILY THORNTON GAGE " Em " Suffield, Connecticut Wcllesley Two years Conrant ' 25, ' 26 Secretary-Treasurer Odeon ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Basketball Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Odeon ' 25, ' 26 Secretary Student Council ' 26 Merit Committee ' 26 Prowess in the field of literature is greatly to be envied, especially such headway as has been made by Emily in her two years here. She ' s quiet, but oh! what a wealth of ideas lie hidden beneath that pretty hair until her ready pen releases them from its tip. She not only has given us a great pleasure with her literary ability but has aided others in doing so by her efficient management as Literary Editor-in-chief of the Courant. She climbs to dizzy heights too, on the Honor Roll. But there are times when she throws all her dignity to the winds as she tears around the basketball field. DOROTHY GILLETTE " Dot " Danvers, Massachusetts Two years Entertainment Committee ' 26 Fidelio ' 25 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Arm Band ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 From all accounts, Dot seems to be a live wire on the second floor wing and her room is a general gathering place on ten o ' clock nights. We suspect that Dot may some day found an orphan asylum in Danvers, and we feel sure that all the orphans will love her because of her kindly disposition, her love of children and her broad smile which is really quite winning. 17 The Abbot Circle 1926 EVELYN MAY GLIDDEN " did " Watertown, Massachusetts Wellesley Five years Honor Roll ' 22, ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Glee Club ' 22 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Hockey Team ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Q. E. D. ' 25, ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 24 Northneld Delegate ' 25 " A " Society ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Athletic Council ' 26 Sec.-Treas. " A " Society ' 24 Student Council ' 26 Class Vice-President ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Student-Faculty Committee ' 26 Posture Committee ' 26 President of A. A. A. ' 26 If only some of us could have just a scrap of Glid ' s brains, how clever we might be! Not content with the mediocre, Glid aspires to the highest in everything. She is not afraid of hard work, and she perhaps best fits, more than any- one else, the old adage: " Work while you work; play while you play. " Glid certainly does the latter on the hockey field and without her on the forward line — well, we just couldn ' t imagine it. She has great ability in all lines and we are ex- pecting much of her when she gets out into the cold, cold world. PATRICIA ALICE GOODWILLIE " Patty " Andover, Massachusetts Smith Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 French Play ' 24 Courant ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Student Government ' 25 Three years Honor Roll ' 24, ' 26 Senior Mid Play ' 25 Draper Dramatics ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Last year everyone stood a little in awe of Patty, as she was on " Stu.G. " But this year she has been just " Patty, " and everyone likes her. She spends many weary hours writing strange manuscripts, which nobody may see, but they aren ' t treacherous; they ' re only editorials for the Courant. Although Madame Craig has christened her " Patty-je-n ' ai-pas fini " , yet she always does finish finally, and even manages to get on the Honor Roll. 18 The Abbot Circle 1926 GRACIE GRIFFIN Winthrop, Massachusetts Boston Academy of Speech Arts Five years Junior Glee Club ' 21, ' 22 English V Play ' 24 Fidelio 22, ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 School Cheer Leader ' 24, Draper Dramatics ' 25 President A. D. S. ' 26 A. D. S. ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 A. D. S.

Which will it be, Gracie? Are you going to take your contagious laugh to the comedy stage, or are you going to make your reputation in Shakespeare, and show people what a " heavenly Rosalind " you can be? Whichever it is, we know you will shine and carry the same pep to the stage that you gave to us on Bradford Day. SAYE-KO HIROOKA Hyogo-ken, Japan Two years " A " Society Senior Mid Play ' 25 Basketball Team ' 26 Advisory Board Basketball Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 25 Little Saye is quiet until a hidden spring, somewhere within her, is pressed, and she ' s off — all mirth, and just bubbling over, and her little giggle is positively contagious. She streaks around the basketball field, dodging in and out, and if the ball is anywhere in Saye ' s vicinity, she will get it. We ' ll never forget her as the indif- ferent " Property Man " in the Senior-Mid Play, and we wonder if the newspaper she so studiously held before her face was really right- side up. 19 The Abbot Circle 1926 JANE RUTH HOVEY ' ' Pork Chop " Melrose, Massachusetts Boston Academy of Speech Arts Two years Draper Dramatics ' 25 Arm Band ' 24, ' 25 A. D. S. ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 " Pork Chop " has got real ability in dramatics and we wonder what A. D. S. and the Seniors would do without her and her talent. We think she has a great future ahead of her and ' we wish her all luck. A fellow Senior entering the Senior parlor is almost always sure to find Jane re- clining. Studying Current Events? Maybe so, but she ' s smiling in spite of it. She ' s always on the broad grin! CYNTHIA HUNT " Cyn " Attleboro, Massachusetts Smith Two years Arm Band ' 24 Draper Dramatics ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 French Play ' 26 Although " Cyn " is not our class baby in age, she surely is in looks; for what could be more adorably infant-like than her wide blue eyes and closely cropped hair. In order to live up to her looks she is constantly effervescing, and has also won for herself the name of " peace-maker " on the fourth floor. And, oh Cyn! Although you may not know it, we have found out about that sweet-tooth of yours, too. Does anyone want Hershey bars? Go to Cyn, she won ' t fail you. 20 The Abbot Circle 1926 EDITH KIMBALL IRELAND " Edie " Newburyport, Massachusetts Two years Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play Edie has such a bubbling-over and cheerful disposition that it is hard to imagine her cross and irritable. Maybe she does get that way, but we have never seen her. Per haps it is because she pours out her wrath on the heads of the members of her nursery and menagerie, and has none left for us. At times we notice that the bunny and puppy are sitting up rather straight, and have a crestfallen air about them. Also — (don ' t tell anyone) three of her goldfish were found dead one morning. RUTH KATZMAN " Kitty " Hyde Park, Massachusetts Three years Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Secretary A. C. A. ' 26 Secretary Class ' 24 English V Play ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Senior Play ' 25 Ruth, like her roommate, is another one of the quiet members of the Class of ' 26, but it is the silence of knowledge, not of ignorance. She says so many things that are worth-while that she is a more than admirable Bible Group leader. We did not know that she had such latent dramatic ability either, until she appeared in that charming English V Play last year. 21 The Abbot Circle 192 6 HELEN ELIZABETH LARSON " Bud " Kansas City, Missouri Two years Hockey Team ' 26 " A " Society ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Class Book Board ' 26 In our encyclopedia of names, H. Larson should stand for pep, ingenuity and all that is gay. When we hear her coming down the corridor, we forget our worries and try to look cheerful. " Now I ask you, " what would we have done on the Class Book Board without Bud ' s able assist- ance? When she got on the job the ads just came rolling in and the money too. We always did insist that she could sell an ice cream cone to an Eskimo! LUCIE VIRGINIA LOCKER " Locker " Wellesley Tennis Team ' 24, ' 25, Tennis Numerals ' 24 Captain Tennis Team ' 26 " A " Society ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Athletic Council ' 26 Senior Play Duluth, Minnesota Three years Fidelio ' 24, ' 26 26 Q. E. D. ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 French Play ' 24 Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Posture Honor Roll ' 25 For three years Lucie has been a prominent figure in the tennis history of Abbot. She has conquered many foes, not only on the court, but in the class-room, for she takes the Honor Roll as a matter of course. When Lucie graduates, the Western Union will go into a state of insol- vency; Miss Jenks ' s time will hang heavy on her hands; Miss Bailey will forget how to read, and the messenger-boy ' s bicycle will grow rusty with disuse. That ' s all right, Lucie, we all can ' t have Ernies for brothers. The Class of ' 26 claims Lucie and Edie as worthy upholders of the United States motto, " United we stand; divided we fall. " 22 The Abbot Circle 1926 MARIE SUZANNE LOIZEAUX " Suzzy " Plymouth, New Hampshire Prince School Two years Treasurer Athletic Association ' 26 Q. E. D. ' 26 Hockey Team ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Fidelio ' 25 Class Book Board ' 26 Athletic Council ' 26 " A " Society ' 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Entertainment Committee ' 26 Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 The Class of ' 26 without its Suzzy would be like the proverbial — or nearly proverbial — ship without a sail. Who else could settle the affairs of the nation quite so satisfactorily? Who else could pour just the right kind of oil on troubled waters? Who but Suzzy, mighty as to determination and shinguards, could so nobly guard the hockey goal? Who in the Senior class could write one song without her cheerful and substantial aid? Suzzy trails behind her a long list of accomplishments, one of which is playing the jew ' s-harp. EMILY LOUISE LYMAN " Emilee " Mt. Kisco, New York Four years Arm Band ' 23 Advisory Board ' 25 Fidelio ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Secretary A. C. A. ' 25 Q. E. D. ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 President Q. E. D. ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Class Vice-President ' 25 1st Vice-President Stu. G. ' 26 " Laugh and grow fat. " Emily is probably the exception that proves the rule. If she were not, she would have joined Barnum and Bailey ' s long ago. Room 30 undoubtedly has enough laughter filling its cracks and crannies, after two years of Emily, to tide it over till she comes back for her fortieth reunion in 1966. De spite this, Emily is capable of being quite serious-minded at times; as, for instance, in the heated Q. E. D. debates, when she expounds her theories in no uncertain terms. Some day Abbot may be proud to claim her as one of the leading stateswomen of our country. 23 The Abbot Circle 1926 FLORENCE WRIGHT MacDOUGALL " Flop " Newton Center, Massachusetts Three years Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 24 Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 24 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 We are quite sure that sometime soon Flop will be taken in as Mr. Bassett ' s assistant, to point out the wonders to be seen on the tours. If anyone is in doubt about this, let her ask the History of Art class about the time Flop took us through McKeen hall and expounded upon Greek goddesses and Roman edifices. Whenever you are in need of this expert person, you had best look in Dot ' s room, for you are sure to find her there. ELINOR COLBY MAHONEY Salem, Massachusetts Wellesley Two years Vice-President A. A. A. ' 26 Honor Roll ' 25 Athletic Council ' 26 Arm Band ' 24 Student Council ' 26 2 Arm Bars ' 25 Baseball Numerals Posture Honor Roll ' 25, ' 26 Here is another of our outstanding walkers, and to keep account of Elinor ' s arm bands and bars one would need the head of an adding machine. Sometimes she quickens her pace into running, and we know how well, by her ribbons and the way she upheld the honor of the Senior- Mids last spring. But Elinor does not confine her accomplishments to the mere physical, for if you peep between the blue covers of the Conrant, you are sure to find some of her exquisite work. 24 The Abbot Circle 192 6 FRANCES McDOUGALL " Fran " , " Ft " , " Frazzie " Rockland, Maine Four years Q.

Everyone instinctively waits for that on the end of Fi ' s little giggle. It always comes, but it wouldn ' t be Fi if it didn ' t. They say that every genius has his own peculiarities, so this must be one of Fi ' s. (For a complete list, see Gret.) Music is her medium, and Abbot, as well as ' 26, is proud to have so able a musician among its members. Frazzy stands out, too, as class and school cheer leader. She organized and led a splendid basketball team with the finest of spirit, and much credit is due her. We might add that another of her peculiarities is snakes. If vou doubt it. temnt her with one! FRANCES ELLIOT MERRICK " Fran " Andover, Massachusetts Radcliffe Five years Honor Roll ' 22, ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Fran is one of the chosen few who has saved the reputation of her class by " getting on the Honor Roll. There is scarcely ever one upon which her name does not appear. And although there is room on it for everyone, we are sure that it is a very honorable list. 25 The Abbot Circle 1926 PRISCILLA PERKINS " Perk " Salem, Massachusetts New England Conservatory of Music Two years Class Treasurer ' 25 Senior Treasurer ' 26 Philomatheia ' 25, ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 President Philomatheia ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Editor-in-chief of Classbook ' 26 Choir ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 25 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 English V Play ' 25 " Perk, " besides having a song-bird in her throat, is the very able editor-in-chief of this book. Oh! to be blessed with a lovely voice and eyes to match, and the brains necessary for doing business in this world. As if this were not enough, she guides Philomatheia with one hand and, as she puts it, rakes in shekels with the other, as class treasurer. And she puts mere man to shame in the art of making love, as was proved to us when she took the leading part in " The Turtle Dove. " MAUDE ALICE PERRY " Grendel " , " Maudie " Springfield, Massachusetts Two years Arm Band ' 25 Spanish Play ' 25 Fidelio ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 In addition to the above accomplishments Grendel has the distinction of being " The bony priser of the humorous duke, " and we judge from all the shouting that she must have been some wrestler to down. She showed her strength to us again when she packed our trunks for us, in preparation for our trip to Intervale, and what didn ' t she get into them !

OLIVE ROGERS West Roxbury, Massachusetts Advisory Board ' 26 Fidelio ' 25 Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 Olive has always been an unobtrusive little person and we hardly were aware that she was around unless we caught sight of her unmatch- able rosebud complexion. But when we went up to Intervale, she seemed to have found her native haunt, for Olive, with her soft white sweater and toboggan cap, was the center of all eyes. Also she has an irresistible giggle, and if you happen in that secluded little nook on the second floor front, you will be certain to hear it. 27 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 SYLVEA BULL SHAPLEIGH " Syllie " Andover, Massachusetts Smith Five Years Class Vice-President ' 23 Class Secretary ' 25 A.

But why limit her accomplishments to walking? She knows the heavens and all the stars, as well as the current political questions. So here is another problem as to what to write about. But we will leave that to her own dichotomizing of the cosmos. 28 The Abbot Circle 1926 Three years Senior Play VIRGINIA SPEAR " Dinny " Chevy Chase, Maryland Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Dinny is one of the accomplished musicians of the class; she plays the piano and organ, and is one of the few strivers for the music certificate. Poor Dinny has such a hard time keeping her roommate and " Porkchop " on the straight and narrow that we wonder if she will fade away into thin air one of these days. But although she takes up less room than anyone else in the class, she will leave quite a space when she is gone. RUTH MOWATT STAFFORD Andover, Massachusetts Mt.

MARY SUN " Sunny " Tientsin, China Four years Entertainment Committee ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Mary, who was the adorable heroine, Kwenlin, in " The Turtle Dove " last year, brought the real oriental atmosphere into the play and her make-tip accentuated her native beauty. She was a wonderful sport up at Intervale, and al- though it was her first real taste of winter sports, she proved to be quite a skater and skier. Mary may seem to some people like a little angel, but in reality she ' s usually at the center of any mis- chief brewing on the second floor wing.

As Class President she has shown great executive ability in handling every situation, and in putting things through. The Abbot stage will indeed be forlorn without her, for she has con- tributed much in the way of fine acting. We will not soon forget her as Touchstone. Although studious and thoughtful at times, she can always find some humor in the most serious situation. Leavenworth, Kansas, is a long way off, and is, perhaps, " one of the little country towns along the way, " but if Gret is a typical specimen, Abbot says " Come on, Leavenworth!!

The port in view was ' 26, Four stops before the end. But what a lot there was to do, ' Til " No more sails to tend. " It meant building Caesar ' s bridges, And counting lobster ' s toes. It meant constructing queer-shaped figures, And reciting English prose. It wasn ' t all good sailing, though, There came many a wintry squall, But it gave the crew fine training, Which we know counts most of all. Midyears and finals were " on deck, " As we anchored at every dock, By some they were hailed as a beacon-light, By others, a dangerous rock. Thus on we sailed for five whole years With ' 26 in view, Sometimes the sky was a dubious grey, But it often cleared to blue. The ship changed hands at every port, And officers chosen by all, They guided us with a steady hand Through many a stormy squall. 36 The Abbot Circle 1926 Gret Vanderschmidt was our captain bold, Fonty, her staunch first mate, The log was kept by Alice Cole, Perk, our purser, kept books straight. Anstiss Bowser is the look-out, Who looks around to see Just what is going on about And wards off mutiny. The hard test came in the final stretch, When we really had to fight The heavy storms and rocky shoals, But — we ' re the purple and white. This fact alone can answer why The ship still rides in state It may be battle-worn and scarred, But it rides — awaiting fate. Its race is nobly finished now, With its colors floating high, Its spirit will live forever, The purple and white for aye. Above, when the bright sun has left us, And the sky is a grackle-head blue, There glows in the distant horizon A smouldering purple hue. M.S. L. 37 The Abbot Circle 1926 Snterbale " Oh, wonderful wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that out of all whooping! " — " As You Like It. " In this day and age it is said that the adjective " wonderful " is used for such trivial things that it loses the fulness of its meaning. But in Shakespeare ' s time, it was used only properly, so we turn to his quotation to be very sure you under- stand that in saying Intervale was wonderful, we mean it. No one could have wished for more perfect weather. Even Miss Bailey, that inveterate " Intervale-goer " , said that it was really all that could be hoped for. We felt the softness of Intervale snow as it came down, and we felt its softness when we fell off skis and toboggans. Between our " uprisings " and " down- sittings, " we ate — oh! how we ate! However, because we expect that you will be there some day, we will not try to describe in any kind of detail those three glorious days in the mountains. Descriptions of those days would be useless, for that matter, for they are a pleas- ure that must be experienced before it can be fully understood and appreciated. It was almost with tears that we said goodbye to Intervale, and to that most lovable of guides, Mr. Bassett. 38 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 Snterbale iking (Tune — " Jingle Bells " ) Oh, we have been away, And we would like to stay. But " B. B. " said " Oh no, no, no, " You must come back today. " We ' ve skied and skated too, And that ' s not all to do. But p ' raps that ' s all we ' d better say, For you ' ll be there some day. Intervale, Intervale, we are all for you! Coffee, pies and griddle-cakes, and don ' t forget those steaks! Intervale, Intervale, oh how we long for you. A comedown from those sirloin steaks to good old Irish stew! (Tune — " Three Blind Mice " — Round) No more Math, no more Psyc. We ' ve had a lot of fun, we wish you could have come. We didn ' t have room in our trunks for you, But if we had we ' d have brought you too. You ' re called the funny, funny faculty, But you ' re all right! (Tune — ' ' Solomon Levi " ) We are a bunch of Abbot girls, We ' ve come from Intervale; And if you ask us why in the world We ' re looking as thin as a rail. We ' ll tell you now we ' ve had a good time, We ' re back just for our mail. Of course we ' re glad to see you, Abbot, And thereby hangs our tale. No Lit or Psyc. Tra-la-la-la-la! No soup or pickles Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha ! 39 The Abbot Circle 1926 We ' ve been way up to Intervale And now we ' re back to you. And if you ' re good and study hard Some day you ' ll get there too.

We ' ve been way up to Intervale — etc. Tune — " It ' s a Long Way to Tipperary " ) It ' s a hard grind to be a Senior, And to get to Intervale. But when Midyears were past and over And we looked so thin and pale; We packed up our good old woolies In our little steamer trunks. And we rode the engine to the mountains. And forgot about our flunks. Then it ' s a great life to be a Senior, And to play the whole day long. We go skijoring and bacon-batting, And we take the food along. And then it ' s time to pack up our woolies; So we throw them in our trunks. And back we come to dear old Abbot, With a smile to face our flunks. 40 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 Sure a little bit of Heaven Fell from out the sky one day And it nestled in New Hampshire Not so many miles away. And when the angels found it Sure, it looked so sweet and fair, They said, " Suppose we leave it For it is so peaceful there. " So, they sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pinetrees grow. They ' re the finest ones that can be found No matter where you go. And they placed the mountains round it Just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished Sure, they called it Intervale! 41 The Abbot Circle 1926 abbot Vignettes — abbot Jfflatl JloxeS Characters Mail box — No. 13 Mail box — No. 14 Scene Abbot Academy Time March 25th, 1926 No. 13: The black looks I get these days are simply unbearable.

No. 13: You know, my owner persists in not only opening, but in poking her hand in me, everytime she passes. Queer! No. 14: Why don ' t you ask her doctor to prescribe spectacles for her?

There certainly is a tumult now, though.

No. 13: Oh! — that sends the shivers up and down my back. I suppose I should be glad to give the poor dears something to do. It must have been very dull, only to look at the mail rack and not have a private box to open and shut. No. 14: There ' s always something to be thankful for. It ' s great to feel important.

The first of February I had packs of postcards for her ' — pictures of snow and mountains. Guess my owner ' s rather popular. On the fourteenth all I heard were squeals of joy, and I can ' t imagine why I was so laden down then. She ' s really spoiled.

Oh, well, thank goodness, she ' s going away. Now we can have some peace. Goodbye. No. 13: Goodbye. Hope you enjoy your rest. Adelaide Black HmttcaSesi, ftere anb W$txt As I sat in the station, waiting for a train, I observed suitcases — big ones, little ones, shiny black ones, and old straw ones. And how characteristic they all were of their owners! An Italian immigrant went by, tugging a dilapidated straw suitcase which bulged at the corners. It probably contained all the poor woman ' s wordly possessions, and, like her, needed repair. Next came Mr. NouveaU Riche with his suitcases plastered with foreign labels which he had bought at home. I glanced up. What prima donna could this be? There was a porter, struggling under the burden of hatboxes, suitcases, band-boxes and a tennis racquet! Fol- lowing, was a young lady clasping an exotic little Parisienne doll in one hand, and a bunch of roses in the other. Her fame was all to make, however! it was just an Abbot girl back from a long recess. Ruth C. Deadman ftatrptnsi There was a time when the hairpin played an important part in keeping milady ' s hair handsomely in place. It is untrue to say that it doesn ' t do so now, but certainly its use has decreased, even in the last ten years. I wonder what the hair- pin thinks about it. It must be quite distracting to lose one ' s place in society. Of cou rse it can be put to other uses besides holding up milady ' s hair. Indeed, the hairpin makes a fine buttonhook, when such is missing. But alas, that usage is dying out, because we haven ' t the button shoe as of old. Here at Abbot, we have a tree within the famous circle, which is called " The Hairpin Tree. " Off and on we have individual contests to see who can find the most hairpins to hang upon the tree. Today the tree is quite a curiosity. It contains hairpins of many varieties of size, shape and color. As long as our famous " Hairpin Tree " lasts, no young lady at Abbot will ever fail to know what a hairpin looked like.

Some walk serenely and sedately; others hurry with short, quick steps, or some jauntily, yet with deliber- ation. Some have a wilful tossing of the head ; some barely turn a serious, pensive 44 The Abbot Circle 1926 profile, and yet others smile benignly and move unconscious lips. Some stand and gaze intently in one direction, and then, suddenly jerking the head, move as suddenly onward with an expression of intense relief. Here is where each indi- vidual is individual — during the matin salute to Miss Bailey in the dining room. Emily Gage W$t 3nbt£pen£able Who can imagine a recital at Abbot without Charles? Often he appears before the performers themselves do, to give the note for the tuning of the violins behind the scenes. Later he comes in to close the piano; then he reopens it. It seems frequently necessary to exchange the stool for a bench, or vice versa. If a group is to play he carefully brings in chairs and music-racks, and arranges them with absolute precision. The air of naturalness and perfect ease with which he goes through his part of the program is truly remarkable. His amused grin when we applaud him by mistake is most infectious, and makes the time between the numbers go much faster. Margaret Stirling ZEfje Jfrtenblp IXabtator Of all the friendly objects about Abbot, there is none quite so warm and delightful as the hall radiator. Its warmth after the bitter cold of outdoors is soothing; while its magnetic personality draws you to it, and its cosy and cheery heat makes you reluctant to leave its intimacy. What a popular meeting place the radiator is for all! It hears strange and conflicting gossip, but never starts trouble by breathing a thing it hears; and what a comforting glow it sends through you when you are waiting in fear and trembling to enter the office on a perilous errand. How strong and patient the radiator seems when you come to it in a frenzy over an examination. It is entirely passive, yet it quietly sends out its protective warmth to calm you. Changes of many sorts take place, but this warm, faithful friend, the radiator, remains the same throughout them all. Jane Ruth Hovey abbot S all You are very stately, my friend, with your slim grey columns, and cool stone steps; your dome from which we may watch the heavens at night is imposing, too. You are grave and impassive, but I know that you are full of knowledge, and often your chambers echo with sweet harmonies. Your ivy mantle is full of cool shad- ows in summer. As your square window-panes blink contentedly at the sun, what do the pigeons confide to you ; what tales have the sparrows under your eaves to tell?

It is only a week since he took to wife The fairest of rosy-cheeked maids. Oh master! We Have struck a stone — That ' s right — pull slow, Now lift, Now turn, We ' re free!

Bamboo leaves stir with cool wind-songs And shadowy pine-trees croon. A night-hawk moans in a distant shade (Low, sad and tremulous its song). I slip away to the edge of the pool And await the rising moon.

" She made no Ripley, but began to Monan Nash her teeth. Then she sobbed : " This afternoon I was Friskin down the Lane, and a Bullen a cow began to Chase me. I ran into some Burrs and tore my Bloomers and scratched my Hyde and now it Burns. " Just then he came. I was so happy that I thought I ' d Dyer faint, but he was in a Gay mood and wanted to take me out. " Watson tonight at the Colonial? " he asked my sister. " Don ' t Kidder, " I Warrened him. " She ' ll think you want to take her along. " " I ' ll Skinner and Locker up if she comes, " he said. She turned White and ran away. " I ' m Amesse, " he said. " I didn ' t mean to frighten her. By the way, I haven ' t eaten yet. " So I brought him some Hammond French Pease. Then we went off in his Rolls Roys. " We ' ll Parker here in front of the theater, " he said. " Abbot she might be stolen, even Marceau because she ' s new. There ' s Bean a lot of trouble about such things down here. Let ' s go out in the country. The fresh Ayers Braced us and we whirled off. " I felt like a Deadman before I met you dear, " he said. " Burt now my heart is Hovey with love for you. Would Gillette me kiss you?

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise. To meet the glad with joyful smiles, || : And to wipe the weeping eyes; : And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am, In whatso ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts 1 1 : To keep and cultivate ; : 1 1 And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord, on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength, To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life || : While keeping at thy side; : || Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified. 52 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 Mentor JffltbMe Class Class Colors — Red and White Let ' s give a cheer, girls, for twenty-seven, We ' re the class of the red and white.

Cfjeer Heaberg 72 The Abbot Circle 192 6 prabforb Bap The height of our training-table careers was reached on November 4th, when we awoke to a bright, sunshiny morning, which seemed to be made to order for us. Our enthusiasm was at a high pitch, and even the donning of the " P. TVs " didn ' t serve to dampen it. Four special cars awaited our arrival at Morton Street. At last, the long-heralded day had come, and we were off for Bradford. The Bradford girls, dressed in yellow and white, with little yellow and white caps, presented a very picturesque appearance, banked up on the steps of the big main building. After the usual welcome songs, we were borne by our respective hostesses to the tennis-courts, where we watched two very exciting matches: " Annie " and Lucie played a superb game of doubles, and it was not until the last point of the last game was played that we knew who had the victory. After croquet and clock golf, we were escorted to the gym, where a royal feast was awaiting us. Gathered outside, with Miss Coats and Miss Bailey as our inspirations, we sang lustily to each other. When Bradford had given us a very admirable exhibition of archery in some interclass contests, we walked through the woods, and came out upon the hockey and basketball fields, where we watched two well-matched teams make some good plays. The basketball game was nip and tuck up to the moment when the last whistle blew, which signified the end of our day, with a score of forty-five for Bradford, against our five. But as the goodbye songs were sung on the big stairway, we realized what fine spirit existed between the two rival schools, and what true and lasting friend- ships we had made that day. 73 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 9 iou Hikt 3t " As You Like It " suddenly walked out " from between its leathern covers and became a true, tangible and delicious comedy, with that vivid sparkle of life that glows in an Arden made real after existing on a bookshelf only as a dream. Being a favorite plot and a familiar one, its ravelings and unravelings had a more fas- cinating touch because of our intimacy with them. In the castle, that old-time sense of chivalry was prevalent, and our sym- pathies were tangled up immediately in the irresistible love of Orlando and his beautiful Rosalind. Rosalind ' s banishment was not too pathetic, for we were revived by the eager and amusing jest of her leaving, dressed as a lad, with her cousin Celia as a peasant maid, for the fair forest of Arden. After all, they were having a wonderful time out of life. So we lived and laughed again with the charming Ganymede and Aliena, the heroic banished Duke, and the quick-tongued Touchstone, under the ideal shade of Arden ' s familiar trees, watching love blossom and tangle and finally end in lilting happiness, and satisfaction to everyone, not to speak of our eager, inter- ested selves. 75 The Abbot Circle 192 6 Mentor iWtbble $lap 9 Jfan anb too Canbiegtickg There is a witchery in swaying crinolines and in the shine of satin, in powdered hair and in the dignified measures of a minuet. This is the story of a young girl at a dance on St. Valentine ' s Day. She loses her highly prized fan, and two ardent lovers are eager to find it, for the reward is the last minuet, and the girl herself. Fair Nancy does not know whether she would have Hugh or Ralph, but Hugh, who has stolen the fan, returns it and wins a bonny bride. Nancy . . . . . . . . . Marjorie Knowlton Hugh ............ Dorothy Spear Ralph ...........: June Hinman i£ tr IBabib Wzav a Croton Let us hope that we are not too old to enjoy the sight of Kings and Queens, and of a little peasant boy, crowned as in the good old fairy tales. When convention, seconded by the King ' s great-aunt, drove a lovely queen away, and happiness could not enter the gilded palace because of propriety, little David became a friend of the Queen, and she, in return, knighted him " Sir David-Little-Boy. " The Queen returned to the palace and became the true Queen and counsellor of the King. As the play closes, Sir David-Little-Boy is not a rapturous prince, but just a tired little boy, sung to sleep by his mother, who sees a great future for her little son. Prologue .

We enjoyed seeing Mrs. Briggs finally married to a former lover, and her daughter successful in finding the one man. But how piteous is the sight of young Lancelot Briggs ' s shattered romance, when the attractive young widow, for whom he had a sudden " unexplainable feeling, " a " sort of don ' t you know, " and " he-would-make-her-happy-forever " feeling, is found, in the end, to be betrothed to another.

The well-known and long-anticipated comedy of " The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife " proved well worth waiting for. We smiled at the antics of Gille and Alizon ; we laughed at the doctor and his earnest little surgeon; we sympathized and suffered with the judge in his trials and tribulations. The fine synopsis and the splendid acting made great knowledge of French unnecessary, and the whole performance, as to both costuming and acting, was charmingly colorful. 77 The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 W )p tfje Cl)tme£ Hang When A. D. S. presented " Why the Chimes Rang, " we witnessed a very charming, well interpreted little play, which contained mingled laughter and tears. Laughter for Steen and his unsatiable appetite; tears for Holger and his sweet unselfishness in staying at home to care for the old woman when he wanted so very much to go with Steen to the great cathedral service on Christmas Eve. As Holger at last reached the cathedral, the chimes, which had remained silent as the many rich gifts were laid on the altar, burst forth into tumultuous, glorious music when the boy presents his mite for the Christchild.
