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 rr.id-year 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 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 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
