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

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 1926 GRETCHEN GARDNER VANDERSCHMIDT " Gret " Leavenworth, Kansas Five years ' 25, ' 26 Glee Club ' 22 Hockey Team ' 26 " A " Society ' 26 German Play ' 24 Student Council ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 25, ' 26 Senior Play ' 26 Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 22, ' 23 Senior President Class Treasurer ' 25 Class Secretary ' 24 A. D. S. ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Sec.-Treas. A. D. S. ' 25 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Program Committee ' 25 Chairman Tea Dance Committee ' 25 Choir ' 26 English V Play ' 24 Draper Dramatics ' 24 Class Book Board Ex-officio Northfield ' 25 Gret is one of the pillars of our class, and the success of our Senior year has been largely due to her. As Class President she has shown great executive ability in handling every situation, and in putting things through. The Abbot stage will indeed be forlorn without her, for she has con- tributed much in the way of fine acting. We will not soon forget her as Touchstone. Although studious and thoughtful at times, she can always find some humor in the most serious situation. Leavenworth, Kansas, is a long way off, and is, perhaps, " one of the little country towns along the way, " but if Gret is a typical specimen, Abbot says " Come on, Leavenworth!! " FUKI WOOYENAKA Tokyo, Japan Wellesley Two years Arm Band ' 25 Courant ' 25, ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Odeon ' 25 O Fuki, Fuki, why can ' t you give the rest of us poor struggling creatures just a tiny bit of the ability that is so natural to you? For, know that Fuki, although she comes from far away Japan, is a member of Odeon, and writes the loveliest imaginable poems for the Courant. But ' she does not confine herself entirely to sober, study moods, and pensive, poetic ones. Not at all. Just listen to her giggle, or see her ski, and know the contrary. 31
