The Abbot Circle 192 6 Mentor iWtbble $lap 9 Jfan anb too Canbiegtickg There is a witchery in swaying crinolines and in the shine of satin, in powdered hair and in the dignified measures of a minuet. This is the story of a young girl at a dance on St. Valentine ' s Day. She loses her highly prized fan, and two ardent lovers are eager to find it, for the reward is the last minuet, and the girl herself. Fair Nancy does not know whether she would have Hugh or Ralph, but Hugh, who has stolen the fan, returns it and wins a bonny bride. Nancy . . . . . . . . . Marjorie Knowlton Hugh ............

When convention, seconded by the King ' s great-aunt, drove a lovely queen away, and happiness could not enter the gilded palace because of propriety, little David became a friend of the Queen, and she, in return, knighted him " Sir David-Little-Boy. " The Queen returned to the palace and became the true Queen and counsellor of the King. As the play closes, Sir David-Little-Boy is not a rapturous prince, but just a tired little boy, sung to sleep by his mother, who sees a great future for her little son. Prologue .

The Abbot Circle 19 2 6 9 iou Hikt 3t " As You Like It " suddenly walked out " from between its leathern covers and became a true, tangible and delicious comedy, with that vivid sparkle of life that glows in an Arden made real after existing on a bookshelf only as a dream. Being a favorite plot and a familiar one, its ravelings and unravelings had a more fas- cinating touch because of our intimacy with them. In the castle, that old-time sense of chivalry was prevalent, and our sym- pathies were tangled up immediately in the irresistible love of Orlando and his beautiful Rosalind. Rosalind ' s banishment was not too pathetic, for we were revived by the eager and amusing jest of her leaving, dressed as a lad, with her cousin Celia as a peasant maid, for the fair forest of Arden. After all, they were having a wonderful time out of life. So we lived and laughed again with the charming Ganymede and Aliena, the heroic banished Duke, and the quick-tongued Touchstone, under the ideal shade of Arden ' s familiar trees, watching love blossom and tangle and finally end in lilting happiness, and satisfaction to everyone, not to speak of our eager, inter- ested selves. 75

The Abbot Circle 1926 W$t rpsitmg pace Coincidence made the lounge of a hotel a trysting-place for a mother, her son and daughter. We enjoyed seeing Mrs. Briggs finally married to a former lover, and her daughter successful in finding the one man. But how piteous is the sight of young Lancelot Briggs ' s shattered romance, when the attractive young widow, for whom he had a sudden " unexplainable feeling, " a " sort of don ' t you know, " and " he-would-make-her-happy-forever " feeling, is found, in the end, to be betrothed to another. Mrs. Curtis Lancelot Briggs Mrs. Briggs Jessie Rupert Smith Mr. Ingoldsby Mysterious Voice Persis Good now Harriet Nash Pauline Humeston Elizabeth Aller Lois Kimball Sydna White Alice Mitchell Celut ut Cpousia ne Jfemme Jffluette A fascinating bit of medieval France in song and drama was shared with us on April twentieth by the members of the French department. The well-known and long-anticipated comedy of " The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife " proved well worth waiting for. We smiled at the antics of Gille and Alizon ; we laughed at the doctor and his earnest little surgeon; we sympathized and suffered with the judge in his trials and tribulations. The fine synopsis and the splendid acting made great knowledge of French unnecessary, and the whole performance, as to both costuming and acting, was charmingly colorful. 77
