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.

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 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 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
