The Abbot Circle 1926 ADELAIDE VAN VOORHIS BLACK Zanesville, Ohio Two years Honor Roll ' 25, ' 26 Posture Committee ' 2.5 Student Council ' 26 Armband ' 25 President A. C. A. ' 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
