The Abbot Circle 1926 Three years Senior Play VIRGINIA SPEAR " Dinny " Chevy Chase, Maryland Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Dinny is one of the accomplished musicians of the class; she plays the piano and organ, and is one of the few strivers for the music certificate. Poor Dinny has such a hard time keeping her roommate and " Porkchop " on the straight and narrow that we wonder if she will fade away into thin air one of these days. But although she takes up less room than anyone else in the class, she will leave quite a space when she is gone. RUTH MOWATT STAFFORD Andover, Massachusetts Mt. Holyoke Five years Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Draper Dramatics ' 24, " 25 " Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Class Secretary ' 23 Ruth is one of the cute girls in the class, with her pink cheeks and red lips! But she is bright, too, and works hard on her lessons — really quite a model student. And she is well-known on our Abbot stage where she acts her parts to per- fection. " Thou tell ' st me there is murder in mine eyes — " Ruth is a murderess — of hearts, we hear. 29

The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 SYLVEA BULL SHAPLEIGH " Syllie " Andover, Massachusetts Smith Five Years Class Vice-President ' 23 Class Secretary ' 25 A. D. S. ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 25, ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 German Play ' 24 Arm Band ' 22 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24 Student Council ' 26 Northneld ' 25 Draper Dramatics ' 24, ' 25 Senior Play ' 26 Though her name be " Syllie " yet she is not always so. There are times when she can be very serious. But everyone knows " Syllie ' s " catching giggle, which sets everybody giggling without knowing why. They say that Syllie takes rhythmic this year because she gets enough of " gym " out of school. However that may be, she might prefer to have " gym " in school, too. CARLOTTA SLOPER " Carl " New Britain, Connecticut Two years Philomatheia ' 26 English V Play ' 25 Arm Band ' 25 Spanish Play ' 25 Honor Roll ' 25 Senior Play Bible Group Leader ' 26 Arm Bar ' 26 We have all made up our minds that some clay Carlotta is going to outdistance Eleanora Sears in her walking contest. But why limit her accomplishments to walking? She knows the heavens and all the stars, as well as the current political questions. So here is another problem as to what to write about. But we will leave that to her own dichotomizing of the cosmos. 28

The Abbot Circle 1926 MARGARET STIRLING " Peggy " Lakeville, Connecticut Class Secretary ' 24 Arm Band ' 23 Arm Bar ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 25 Three years Odeon ' 26 Northfield ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24 Meek little Peggy appeared quite unexpectedly in our class. She became too bright for her class, so she just jumped up and landed in ours. Al- though she may look angelic, beware! She ' s full of fun and mischief, and up to any wild prank which might appeal to her sense of humor. For references, ask Gage. MARY SUN " Sunny " Tientsin, China Four years Entertainment Committee ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 25 Mary, who was the adorable heroine, Kwenlin, in " The Turtle Dove " last year, brought the real oriental atmosphere into the play and her make-tip accentuated her native beauty. She was a wonderful sport up at Intervale, and al- though it was her first real taste of winter sports, she proved to be quite a skater and skier. Mary may seem to some people like a little angel, but in reality she ' s usually at the center of any mis- chief brewing on the second floor wing. Left at end of first semester. 30
