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 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 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
