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 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 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
