She is one happy-go-lucky member that bucks up in the middle of class meetings and turns all our thoughts topsy-turvy in a whirlpool of mirth. But Helen has a serious side too: she puts all her Western enthusiasm into the business manage- ment of the Circle. MARY HAMILTON AYERS Akron, Ohio Connecticut Three years Class Treasurer ' 25 Arm Band ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Vice-President A. C. A. ' 27 Arm Bar ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 . Fidelio ' 26 Secretary-Treasurer Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Advisory Board ' 27 We usually think of Mary as one of our quieter members; we have heard, however, that when she and her fair " Coz " are together, there is no end of mirth. Mary is the dependable type, ever willing and glad to help a friend. She must be an excellent accountant by this time; last year she dealt with the class pecuniary affairs; this year she has been collecting dues and managing Philomatheia ' s financial ends. We will always remember your smile, Mary — and those dimples. 10 The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 BETTY LEE BURNS " Lee " Indianapolis, Indiana Two years Arm Band ' 26, ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Odeon ' 27 Head of Riding ' 27 Athletic Council ' 27 Lee — a little name for a little girl! But, what a dynamo is contained within that little self! Where she keeps it we couldn ' t tell you, we just cannot see where there is any room. When Lee is around, there is bound to be a ray of sunshine somewhere no matter how dark the weather or our mood. Her " heh-heh " can make anyone forget all her troubles. To see Lee sitting on a horse is a sight for sore eyes! It hardly seems possible that such a small person can manage a great big beast; but you should see her! Lee, with her purposely unpowdered nose, lighted the path of our endeavor all through the winter. PRISCILLA CHAPMAN ' ' Prip ' ' Winchester, Massachusetts Class Book Board ' 27 Spanish Play ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Fidelio ' 26 Odeon ' 27 Arm Band and Bar ' 26 Prip, how on earth can you always be so cheer- ful and have a pleasant remark for one and all. It surely is your outstanding characteristic and a fine one too. Next year the maids will be re- lieved not to have to trot so many special de- liveries from Hanover, N. H. up to the third floor. You will have to continue keeping track of Squint ' s wise cracks next year, and tell us about them at our first reunion. They are too good to loose rack of. 11 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 CHARLOTTE EVELYN CHASE Andover, Massachusetts Wellesley Four years Spanish Play ' 27 Charlotte is one of the girls whom nothing seems to worry. " Happy-go-lucky " surely ought to be her middle name. She loves flowers, especially when they are in the " bud " . Her favorite hobby is collecting pins of every de- scription. Whose will you wear tomorrow, Charley? When you leave Abbot we advise you to sign with the New York Giants for you surely ought to be able to knock plenty of " homers " ! MARGARET ANNE CREELMAN Laneville, Connecticut Vassar Three years Q. E. D. ' 26, ' 27 Honor Roll ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Vice-President A. A. A.

Play ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Chairman Merit Committee ' 27 Peg has the most dangerous job in the school — one that requires a great deal of courage and a never-ending sunny nature. She is really quite a heroine. Putting up the mail — yes that ' s it. Just try having one hundred and thirty odd girls watch your movements three times a day, ready to take the fiercest form of revenge on you if you do not hand them each a letter. See how long you ' d remain good-natured! Peg is a lady of letters, also; in the sense that she is a very active contributor to the Courant. In fact, the class boasts of Peg as one of its few intellectuals. 12 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 NATALIE CUSHMAN " Nat " Danvers, Massachusetts Three years Arm Band ' 25 Class Treasurer ' 25 Track Team ' 25 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Track Numerals ' 26 Second Hockey Team ' 26 Calendar Committee ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Why is everyone going to Nat ' s room? She has just returned with a home-made cake and, as usual, is sharing it with the corridor. Nat ' s just as ready to offer her services to her friends, as she is to share a piece of cake. And she is good-natured with it all. If anyone has need of Nat in the afternoon, she usually can be found in the Food Shoppe getting rid of odd pence and nickels. MARGARET THURSTON CUTLER " Peg " Andover, Massachusetts Wellesley Four years French Play ' 24 Spanish Play ' 24 Senior Play ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 25, ' 26 Peg seems to favor, or to be favored by, the letter " C " . Her ever changing style of hair cuts, her smart, modish clothes, and her two Cadillacs, as well as the initial letter of her name, certainly show a partiality for that third letter of the alphabet. She even had the name of Carlos in the Spanish play — to add another " C " to her collection — and in this role she was indeed a very romantic and bold lover. Al- though she is always scrapping with a certain blond haired, blue-eyed little girl, her disposition is very amiable and likeable. 13 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 LOUISE PIERCE DeCAMP ' ' Decern " Winchester, Massachusetts Three years Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Choir ' 26, ' 27 Treasurer A. A. A. ' 27 Athletic Council ' 26, ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Posture Committee ' 26 Baseball numerals ' 26 Basketball numerals ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 " Emma " ! Shortly after hearing this familiar name, we usually see Decern appearing in one of her frequent searches for Ruth. Decern does not, however, spend all her time hunting. Many mornings we hear her warbling forth from the music room, rehearsing for her next public appearance. We always look forward to her solo with great anticipation. But Decern has a tendency to contract a cold on the Friday eve- ning before the recital. The few times that she has failed to convince authorities that she had a cold, we have enjoyed her singing. We advise " Smith Brothers " , Decern! GERTRUDE HOLLEY DRUMMOND " Gertie " Bronxville, New York Three years Hockey numerals ' 25 English V Plays ' 25 Honor Roll ' 25, ' 27 Smith Vice-President Class ' 25 A. D. S. ' 26, ' 27 A. D. S. President ' 27 A. D. S.

Answer: Gertie. And we are seldom disappointed as she seems to have an endless supply of knowledge and skill. Gertie is also one of our tennis stars; it was with the help of her steady game that we were able to tie Brad- ford this fall. Her ambition is to become a surgeon, and, as she usually succeeds in all that she attempts, we are expecting great operations. Go to it, Gertie! 14 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 French Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27 HELEN DYER " Dyer " Brookline, Massachusetts Four years Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Secretary A. A. A. ' 27 President of " A " Society ' 27 Athletic Council ' 26, ' 27 Head of Riding ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 Calendar Committee ' 27 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Baseball numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Basketball Team ' 25 Volley Ball ' 26 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Second Basketball Team ' 24, ' 26, ' 27 " You can ' t come inside the rope, on pain of death, do you hear! " No, these were not the words of Charles, roping off the circle, but of our own Dyer in the famous role of a praetorian guard. We can never forget her successful pre- sentation of that role in the Senior-Mid plays and later in the Draper Dramatics. Helen has starred in athletics as well as in dramatics. As head of riding and of the " A " Society, she has been a capable leader. Favorite tricks of Helen ' s are hand springs, cart wheels and fancy skating — she does these admirably — much to the amusement of the spectators. Last, but not least, she is a member of the very exclusive " Bachelor ' s Club " . KATHERINE MAUDE FARLOW " Kay " " Tommy " Andover, Massachusetts Five years Arm Band ' 22 Hockey Team ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 " A " Society ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Hockey numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Captain Hockey Team ' 27 Athletic Council ' 26 Winter Carnival Committee ' 27 What? Did Kay go to that Tech dance last night! But she was always wide awake, es- pecially for hockey practice in the afternoon. Kay was one of our fastest hockey players as well as the captain; she is noted for her speedy dashes from goal to goal midst mud and puddles on the field. Kay kept up training by daily walking that mile — we do not doubt, some- times running it — between her home and Abbot. 15 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 ELLEN CLEMENTINE FAUST Jewett City, Connecticut Wellesley Five years Baseball numerals ' 23 Arm Band ' 23 Hockey Team ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Arm Bar ' 23 Hockey numerals ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Class President ' 25, ' 26 A.

Play ' 26, ' 27 Northfield delegate ' 25 Advisory Board ' 26 Class Cheer Leader ' 26 Fidelio ' 24, ' 25 First Vice-President Student Council ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Choir ' 26, ' 27 Ellen is one of our five year girls. This year, as vice-president of Stu. G., she helped Mini make the school run smoothly. Ellen sings well — few people realize this fact, for she " hides her light under a bushel. " For three years she has played wing on the hockey team — it won ' t seem the same without her. Ellen is going abroad this summer with Emily Lyman — that is a combination that needs no explanation! We know they will have rare experiences. JANE DARE FITCH New London, Connecticut Connecticut Three years Class Basketball Team ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 26 Secretary-Treasurer Les Beaux Arts ' 26, 27 Jane is a portrait herself. Just look at that face. Then look further; you will find that she can draw portraits too. How many pieces of charcoal has Jane transformed into striking likenesses of the girls? Go into the homes of Abbot girls, and count the neat drawings framed over their mothers ' tables! We ' re look- ing forward to a rare exhibition in the John Esther Art Gallery, Jane! 16 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 DOROTHY LILLIAN FRENCH " Dot " Waterbury, Connecticut Wellesley Two years Advisory Board ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 26 Arm Band ' 26, ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 27 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Odeon ' 27 Prom Committee ' 27 Everybody loves Dot — how could one help loving such a sweet, smiling, dark-eyed Dot? We know that this love for her has even extended as far as the frozen north! Room 36 is always a welcome gathering place where its frequenters are often entertained by the daily " Dart- mouth " ; Dot says she cannot imagine who the sender can be — we can easily guess! PERSIS CHRISTINE GOODNOW " Puss " Keene, New Hampshire Wellesley Two years Q. E. D. ' 26, ' 27 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Vice-President Q. E. D. ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Honor Roll ' 27 Class Hockey Team ' 27 Arm Band ' 27 Carnival Committee Indeed she is beautiful, but not at all dumb! Just ask her to show you her Math marks. Puss is one of the most versatile members of the class. She shines in her studies there; when the day ' s work is over, she shines in athletics. Those pigtails, bobbing up and down the hockey field, are unforgettable. Then, again, she shines socially. What would a prom be without Puss? Another one of Puss ' s charms is her delightful, incomparable laugh that runs up and down the scale, then suddenly stops. And, Puss, why do you get so embarrassed? 17 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 JANE PHILLIPS GRAVES " Red " Concord, New Hampshire Wellesley Two years Baseball Numerals ' 26 Philomatheia ' 27 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 Jane is our one and only senior who has a crowning glory of soft red hair — not too red, but just enough to make her different. In oppo- sition to the rule that a bad disposition is the ever-present attendant of red hair, Jane has one of the mildest, best dispositions of anyone in the class. Philomatheia must be proud to have such a brilliant physicist in its roll. RUTH EVELYN HARVEY " Emma " Medford, Massachusetts Three years Arm Band ' 27 A. D. S. ' 27 Class Hockey Team ' 27 A. D. S, Play ' 27 Posture Representative ' 26, ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 To Ruth we owe any amusement that crops up from the class. Hardly a day goes by that Ruth doesn ' t make a remark that convulses the entire class. She is quite an accomplished actress, too, and we shall always remember her in the Senior Play as Miss Phoebe; Phoebe of the ringlets. She played her part extremely well, and seemed to enjoy doing it. Although Phoebe scorned follow ers, we are not so sure about Ruth. From what we have heard, we are pretty certain that her followers are numerous. 18 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 JUNE MEREDITH HINMAN Andover, Massachusetts Wellesley Arm Band ' 23 Class Treasurer ' 24 German Play ' 25 Five years Elocution Plays ' 25, ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Prom Committee ' 27 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Third Vice-President Student Council ' 27 June, another one of the five-year girls, is quite intimate with the Honor Roll. She has a tendency to favor insects, especially mosquitoes and grasshoppers. Have you ever asked June why she buys Judge so faithfully? She reads it too. We will always have to stretch our imagina- tions as to June ' s boyish bob — she never did come to the point of shearing her hair all off. June, when you do cut it, won ' t you send us your picture, so we will know just how it does look? MIRIAM HOUDLETTE " Mim " Melrose Highlands, Massachusetts Two years Odeon ' 26, ' 27 President Student Council ' 27 Head of Volley Ball ' 26 Hiking Leader ' 27 Hockey Team ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 26, ' 27 Hockey Numerals ' 26 Arm Band ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 What ' s the drumming? Oh, that ' s Mim. She is just letting off steam by drumming on her practice pad — a sign of an urgent Stu. G. meeting coming soon! It would be hard on us if she didn ' t have that pad. Mim ' s skill in drumming is no greater than her skill in managing heels, sleeves, and silk stockings. Mim is interested in writing- — -off and on; but, between you and me, those curls are too rare to waste on any such drab existence. In case she finds trouble in choosing her life work, as she did in choosing between her beloved basketball and hockey, we won ' t worry about her, as she does everything equally well. 19 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 EMILY LOUISE HOUSE South Manchester, Connecticut Two years Arm Band ' 26 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 Arm Bar ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 " A friend in need is a friend indeed. " Emily is all of that. If we ever need anything, we are always sure that Emily will gladly supply our wants. At Intervale, how many of us were saved from disgrace by being able to darn our torn stockings. with cotton that Emily had re- membered to take along! If, in a few years, we pass a small, cozy house with flower gardens on all four sides, we may be almost certain that Emily lives there, happily settled, with flowers in every available vase within. PAULINE HUMESTON " Polly " Huntington, Long Island, New York Wellesley Three years Arm Band ' 25, ' 27 Advisory Board ' 26, ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 25 A. D. S. ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Class President ' 26 A. D. S. Treasurer ' 26 Class Book Board ' 26 A. D. S. Play ' 26, ' 27 Choir ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 English V Play ' 25 Fidelio ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 26 Posture Honor Roll ' 26 A. C. A. President ' 27 Polly looks and often acts like the kid brother, and a clever one at that. Just watch her twirl a lasso, and slide across the floor on a rug. Then, too, she ' s " Billy Sunday " . In between times, she is a most desirable young woman, yes even at eighteen; you should hear her talk! Running beneath all these personalities, as the connecting links, are her enthusiasm and de- termination, ever ready for the battle, pleasant or otherwise, accordingly acting as her sense of right demands. We are sure that the Hindman School enjoyed its Christmas box much more this year because our president of A. C. A. packed so much of her enthusiasm into it. 20 T h Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 KATHARINE JOSEPHINE KEANY " Kay " " K-K " Andover, Massachusetts Vassar Four years Posture Committee ' 24 Class Secretary ' 27 Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Odeon ' 26, ' 27 Class Secretary ' 25 Arm Band ' 25, ' 26 Posture Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25 Senior Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 President Odeon ' 27 If you should happen to pick up anyone of the many books which lie in the cloak room of Mc- Keen, it would probably be Kay ' s. She has so many, all of them bulging with papers and notes. They look very businesslike, but they are there for a purpose; Kay is the secretary of our famous class, and she is also president of Odeon. Although she does not take up very much room, Kay will leave a large gap next year. LOIS ISABEL KIMBALL " Lo " , " Loco " Summit, New Jersey Two years Basketball Team ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27 Basketball Numerals ' 26, ' 27 Fidelio ' 26 Class Treasurer ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Class Book Board ' 26 Les Beaux Arts ' 26, ' 27 Secretary Student Council ' 27 Senior Play 27 Editor-in-chief of Class Book ' 27 President Les Beaux Arts ' 26, ' 27 We ought to call her " Hi " , instead of " Lo " , as she certainly rivals the South Church steeple in being up among the clouds. This distinctive characteristic is exceedingly fortunate in basket- ball. Weren ' t we thrilled when Lo got the jump unfailingly last Bradford Day! " Among the clouds " is no phrase to apply to Lo ' s tempera- ment. She is right down to brass tacks. The class of ' 27 is grateful for this fact, as the Circle is partly due to Lo ' s executive ability. Witness the drawings of this book and judge for yourself Lo ' s artistic skill. She is an ideal founder of " Les Beaux Arts " . What would we do without her? We wouldn ' t! 21 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 NANCY PAGE KIMBALL " Nan " " Nance " Waban, Massachusetts The Nursery Training School of Boston Two years Fidelio ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 26 Arm band ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 President Philomatheia ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 27 Class Book Board ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 27 Little Miss Nancy is all " whys? " and " hows? " but that is why we like her. Always the same is our Nancy, never cross or grumpy. And she is conscientious, too, in everything she does from studies to going to play rehearsals. One morning we heard an odd squeal from the Chapel steps; it was only Nancy, who suddenly read from a letter that she was to go abroad this summer. We wish her the best of luck, and send her forth with our love. We only hope that she will put off falling in love until she returns, for fear that she may live abroad forever. MARY ROE KNIGHT " Sis " Monroe, New York Vassar Two years Arm Band ' 26 Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Advisory Board ' 27 Mary Roe may be quiet — but isn ' t it some- thing to have a quiet person around for a change when one is among girls who are, for the most part, at the gushing age? And what counts most is that inside Mary ' s head is a brain that many of us would like to have. It not only issues forth poetry, but a rare wit at all times. Betty says that you just can ' t quarrel with her — for the main reason that she is always right. Many have not stopped, even yet, to look up surprised when she walks into the Senior Parlor. It is only when the Courant comes out or she makes some wise remark that we realize that she is a far better Senior than a lot of us. Be sure and have a funny poem ready for us for our first reunion, Mary Roe. 22 The Abbot C i r c 19 2 7 MARJORIE KNOWLTON Wellesley Class Treasurer ' 24 Spanish Play ' 27 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Andover, Massachusetts Five years Arm Band ' 23 A. D. S. ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 A. D. S. Play ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Peg is " Crazy over Horses, Horses, Horses. " She is not terribly domestic, but she does like to cook. As for acting — Peg can impersonate any character from an innocent little girl to the in- quisitive Mrs. Stubbs. Rumor says that she was an awfully good roommate up at Intervale, and that she helped make her own bed the first night — it was pretty cold that first night, too! Next year we certainly shall miss the sight of Peg, before the mirror in the dressing room, arranging the front part of her crowning glory. EDNA LOUISE MARLAND Ballardvale, Massachusetts Jackson College Five years Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 26 Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 27 Edna is one of the old standbys of our class, always doing her work so diligently, as an Abbot girl should, a quality which many of us lack utterly. She will do anything for you, and can be found, when needed, holding down one of those big comfortable chairs in the Senior Parlor. She has also been seen on the Abbot stage, wrapped in a cloak of mystery. We wish you all kinds of success, Edna, next year at Jackson — we mean Tufts College. 23 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 SYLVIA PARKER MILLER ' ' Jerry ' ' Germantown, Pennsylvania Philadelphia School of Occupational Therapy Three years Fidelio ' 25, ' 26 Basketball Numerals ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Choir ' 27 Basketball Team ' 26, ' 27 Arm Band ' 26 Captain Basketball ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27 A.

Why was she not a blonde! Her " a-haw " in Quality Street will be an amusing memory of Jerry ' s many funny acts of fame. Another memorable deed is her able captaincy of the Basketball Team this year. For one who lives so far away, Jerry certainly knows an astonishing number of our neighbors on the Hill — would that more of us were as easily befriended! HARRIET ESSELSTYN NASH " Hen " Washington, D. C. Two years Captain Tennis Team ' 27 Tennis Singles ' 26, ' 27 Tennis Doubles ' 26 School Cheer Leader ' 27 Athletic Council ' 27 Class Cheer Leader ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Hen can really do almost anything with superlative ability. Her capacity for activities extends from cleaning a room to playing the piano. Her particular hobby is tennis, and collecting tennis trophies. Hen ' s mind involun- tarily turns every thing she does to music; as a result, she can write the most eloquent poetry. What would Abbot have done without Hen to write new songs and often even the music! We question whether she will continue a musical career, or give up that achievement for the life of a poetess and author. 24 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27 French Play ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Q.

Such modesty! As the dashing Mr. Brown in " Quality Street " Ruth made a regular hit. Such proposing as she did do — and how the ladies fell for it — such a quiz! Ruth is a great walker too, and as our hiking leader, has lead many a band of Abbot girls over rough Lovejoy Road and mountainous Mill ' s Hill. MARGARET NAY Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts Four years Class Treasurer ' 24 Baseball Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Northfield Delegate ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Class Vice-President ' 26 Q. E. D. ' 26, ' 27 Second Vice-President Student Council ' 27 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Student Council ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Many have envied Peg the lofty lookout from her bay window where she may view, undis- turbed, any visitors to this cloister, and she was very generous in loaning her window seat to others less fortunate when Andover swooped down on us last fall. Peg has caused many a questioning look when her hair began to branch out — no she was not letting it grow; she merely insists on her special barber in Wood ' s shop in Boston. Peg ' s frequent sojourns home on pre- tenses of illness seem to replenish an already overflowing wardrobe. When Peg gets out her typewriter, dons her glasses and starts ticking off sheets of theses, we begin to believe she ' ll be a stenographer — but time alone will tell. 25 The Abbot C i r c 19 2 7 RUTH MASON PERRY Andover, Wellesley Arm Band ' 23 Arm Bar ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, Massachusetts Five years Class Secretary ' 24 ' 26 Class Vice-President ' 25 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 French Play ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Hockey Team ' 27 Conrant Board ' 27 Class Hockey Team ' 26 " A " Society Wide spread footprints extending toward Abbot on a road of newly fallen snow, are merely signs that Ruth has just completed her final dash for Chapel — she rarely fails to beat Father Time too! This is only one of her victories. Her marks rise like a perennial thermometer — every June we look back upon Ruth ' s record of grades above the 90° mark — right at the top of the Honor Roll list. Ruth, do you gain wisdom on your jaunts about Andover? ALICE ROGERS " Squint " Winchester, Massachusetts Three years Arm Band ' 25 Les Beaux Arts ' 26, ' 27 When loud bursts of laughter are heard coming forth from a table or from a classroom, nine chances out of ten, Squint is there. She has a faculty of making very naive, and, shall we add, unintentionally naive remarks. But they cer- tainly have broken the monotony of many reci- tations, and we are grateful to her for the many gloomy moments which she has made cheerful. We do not mean to insinuate that all her remarks are simple: she certainly can be brilliant when she stops to think about it. Squint, we really do envy you for your unusual wit. 26 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 LUCY COBURN SANBORN Andover, Massachusetts Bryn Mawr Five years Hockey Numerals ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Arm Band ' 23 Hockey Team ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Croquet Team ' 27 Arm Bars ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 " A " Society ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Posture Committee ' 27 Athletic Council ' 27 President A.

How she can per- fect herself in all sorts of sports and yet keep her marks above the Honor Roll line is completely baffling! She has proved, however, that she is our champion sportswoman. As president of A. A. A., Lucy has helped start a fairer point system; instigated a winter carnival and kept up a live interest in all-year sports. As for her other activities — her long list speaks for itself!

This certainly is true of our honorable vice- president. Flora is always doing something for someone else — " an ever present help in time of trouble. " She finds life a jolly affair, and is famous for her management of a successful " Bridge Hall " in her suite. She delights in scaring, almost to distraction, the unwary with a certain little stuffed alligator that made a mysterious appearance not so long ago. 27 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 VIRGINIA WILLISTON SMITH " Gin " , " Ginnie " Westfield, Massachusetts Two years Entertainment Committee ' 27 Fidelio ' 26 Arm Band ' 27 Class Hockey Team ' 27 Choir ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Oh, Ginnie, where did you get those eyes? Not to mention all the rest of your charming person! Ginnie is a very suitable buddy for Lee. They are both at their best when with each other. We will never forget the joyous sounds that issued forth from Room 69 and 71 in the wee small hours when their imaginary, big parade goes by. Ginnie is another cheerful person who is welcome wherever she goes. If you hear Ginnie laugh, something inside of you goes off — you have to laugh with her. DOROTHY FARWELL SPEAR " Dot " Bangor, Maine Bible II Play ' 25 Three years Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 Senior-Mid Plays ' 26 Ah! Our Intervale song, " So we could read all night, not Math, or Psyc, but romances galore. " This surely rang true with Dot and Flora — one, and sometimes two mails a day! But Dot ' s all right, and we hope that she will be very, very, happy. We could not do without her either, for who would turn pages for all the recitals without jerking the music? None other than Dot. She ' s from the cold and " frizzily " north, too, but anyone who needs help will find that Dot ' s heart is from the sunny south. 28 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 AYLMER STANTIAL Melrose, Massachusetts Two years Ficlelio ' 26, ' 27 Choir ' 26, ' 27 Arm Band ' 27 Almost every one is " at home " doing one thing or another, but Aylmer is very, very much at home on ice skates. Not only does she like the sport and balance herself well, but she is very sure and graceful while doing fancy skating. It is a joy to watch her. This is not her only accomplishment for she is one of " Mother " Burnham ' s devoted pupils and has sung for us well several times. Your constant good humor is another asset, Aylmer, and it will help to bring you happiness in life.

She has never been known to disappoint us, no matter how many other things there are that she would rather do. This is just one example of her amiability and good nature. We have never seen her out of sorts or heard her say a cross word. Her aesthetic tastes are proved by the fact that she shines on the Courant Board, and by the picture gallery which she has in her room. We might add that pictures of the opposite sex appeal to her most.

Fortunately, she is very good-natured and accepts the wrong name with a patient smile. She is the songster of the corridor; she sings whenever she is happy. Her favorite song, we judge, is " Tenderly " — and the far-away look in her eyes hints of whom! Correspondence is one of the twins ' favorite sports. It is serious enough so that we virgins, who have neglected to replenish our supply of stamps, are always able to buy them from the maidens across the way. To whom do these many letters go, Al? ELLA HEARD STONEBRAKER Hagerstown, Maryland Two years Hockey Numerals ' 26 Class Hockey Team ' 26 ArmBand ' 26 Fidelio ' 26 Track Team ' 26 Sisters are renowned scrappers, but Ella and Alice are exceptions. They even roomed to- gether for two years, and did not separate at Intervale. We began to miss our gemini dressing alike in the Senior year, but we suppose that Alice is showing her authority as the elder. The Manse will always remember the Stone- brakers — their feet just couldn ' t resist turning right at the corner of Locke and Main Streets. 30 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 HARRIET SULLIVAN " Hat " New London, Connecticut Six year s Junior Glee Club ' 22 Fidelio ' 23, ' 24, ' 25 Class Secretary ' 25 Class Vice-President ' 24, ' 26 Class Treasurer ' 27 School Cheer Leader ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 26 French Play ' 26 Arm Band ' 25 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Class Book Board ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Tea Dance Committee ' 26 " May I have the next dance, Hat? " " No, I ' m sorry; but the fourth? " Hat delights in dancing, and is a most sought-for partner. A familiar sight is our neat little treasurer, clad in a gray coat and red hat, sprinting down, at the last minute, to the Bank — to deposit belated class dues, no doubt! She has the distinction of being the only six-year member of .the class of 1927; how many friends she ' s made during those years! We shall always remember the surprise that Hat gave us, as well as herself — instead of being utterly bored with the four days ' Intervale trip, she had a perfectly glorious time. She almost made reservations for the entire winter at the Hotel Bellevue. SYDNA VICTORIA WHITE " Syd " Waban, Massachusetts Two years A. D. S.

We all look up to Syd, — to where she reigns over our class from her elevation among the clouds. 31 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 0nt Pear trte HELEN CONNOLLY Newburyport, Massachusetts Smith One year " Helen Connolly wanted on the telephone. " What a familiar call this is on the second floor front! If she ' s not wanted on the telephone, someone is waiting to see her in the Drawing room. Such a popular young lady ! Helen is the class song-bird — she is always gay, and takes delight in making others happy. She and " Squeeze " are noted for being model room- mates. We are wondering if Helen will follow in the footsteps of her distinguished French- scholar sister. MARY BELLE MAXWELL Ardmore, Oklahoma Wellesley One year Honor Roll ' 27 Q. E. D. ' 27 Mary Belle who had never seen any snow before! At least not in a great quantity! And what do you suppose she did? She came here as a one-year girl; worked very, very hard, and is actually going to graduate! That shows fine will power, and we are as glad as she. But she did not spend all of her time studying; some time must have been spent in being kind and thoughtful, for she was among the commended ones for conspicuous school helpfulness! She will always be happy in life if she continues helping others that way. 32 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 LOUISE POPE " Squeeze " Cleveland, Ohio Wellesley One year Basketball Team ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Arm Band ' 27 One would never suppose Squeeze would be afraid of anything. Squeeze, who dauntlessly shot baskets on Bradford Day be afraid? But girls are cruel — Squeeze has all but cultivated grey hairs from hallucinations she has had in the corridor at night. She even has been heard screaming. Squeeze has become so attached to our canine friends that she can hold conversa- tion with them in inimitable yaps. We are think- ing of presenting her with a real waggly-tailed puppy — a compensation for our cruelty. % mm r f 33 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Calenbar for 1926=1927 September 22 September 26 September 28 October 3 October 5 October 16 October 17 October 19 October 26 October 27 October 30 November 6 November 7 November 9 November 10 November 17 November 28 November 30 Andover flourishes once more.

He rattled his scales of worry and care And breathed the smoke of stress. A Knight, to kill this dragon fierce, Set out on a five years ' quest. Flying his colors of red and white, He girded himself for the test. Clasping his belt of forty odd links, He hung thereto his sword, Sydna its light, his guiding force In which his faith was stored. Placed he then his silver shield, Flora, on his wrist; Clanked his spurs with grim intent — Girt for speed, I wist. Over his shoulder his trumpet he slung, Kay Keany, to herald the deed; Hat, as his purse, to gain him supplies; So — mounted his dappled steed. Started he in ' 22 The journey ahead of him rough, By ' 27 the den was in sight — He hid not his courage in bluff. Dauntless he rode to confront the beast Which heaved in convulsive start. Foiled him the Knight with rapier swift, And lunged at its evil heart. 36 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 One by one its scales clanked down Lifeless, conquered, to earth — The dragon of work was defeated quite; Sir Knight, our class, proved his worth. This valiant Knight, careworn, yet brave, Will ever be famed for his skill ; He ' ll add to his score other victories bold — More disturbing monsters he ' ll kill. The waving banner of Knight ' 27 Now hangs in a hall of fame; Each flap a sign of lusty toil — It carries on his name! 37 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 ClafiS wax We, the Class of 1927, Abbot Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, being of moderately sound mind and pleasant memories, do hereby bequeath our worldly possessions as follows : First, To the Class of 1928: 1. The joy of cutting pies into ten pieces, one of which must be small. 2. Daily inspirations for conversation with the faculty escorted from dinner. 3. The short-cut through the Senior Parlor to the Basketball court. 4. A key that works for the Senior Parlor door. 5. Knee screens for those in the front row in Chapel. Second, To Individuals: 1. To Miss Chickering we leave an extra window to open. 2. We leave an extra bowl of gravy for Miss Johnson ' s private use. 3. Foot stools for the Faculty in Chapel. 4. Percussion with traps to Miss Friskin as a preservation for the Music Bay floor. 5. Mim leaves her Stu. G. gavel to the next Stu. G. President with the hint that a torpedo beneath its thump will be more effective. 6. Decern leaves an unsound-proof wall to the next occupant of Room 52. 7. Lee leaves her evening dress to Mary Piper. 8. Ellen leaves a few curls to Kay Bowden. 9. Dot French leaves her talkative nature to Jane Linn. 10. Lo leaves her front seat in the Episcopal church to Emily Sloper, with the hint not to stand on the cushion. 11. Nancy leaves Box 82 to Gwen Jones for it brings an endless supply of mail. 12. Hat leaves her great big voice to Anne Miller. 13. The Stonebrakers leave the example of their sisterly affection to all room- mates. Third, To the School: 1. " Lazy Susans " for the dining tables. 2. A fireman ' s pole for the tower stairs, so that the faculty may go down to meals unmolested. 3. Escalator to replace Chapel stairs. 4. Wicker chairs for Room 1 in McKeen. 5. Mail chutes from all floors. 6. A davenport outside Miss Bailey ' s office. 38 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Claste ropfjecp Weird notes squawked their scaley succession through the open door of a garret studio in the Latin quarter of Paris. As I passed the portal, whom should I spy but Ruth Nason! I dragged her to my room, disregarding the offending violin, and we commenced a tete a tete. Ruth told me that she was practicing a difficult passage in Hen Nash ' s recent composition, a symphonic opera, Coleopterus. " What " , I exclaimed, " one of my classmates so illustrious? " Mim has an important part on the kettle-drums. Hat is the leader! She is noted for her trim appearance in a feminine cutaway, and her well-trained pompadour. Of course Hen played the piano. Sydna has the leading part, and Ellen supports her admirably as the second lady. Ruth insisted on my going to the opera that night, then having a dinner afterwards with my old classmates. The opera was beautiful, strangely suggestive of McDowell. At dinner I learned the whereabouts of the other members of ' 27. Ruth heard that Aylmer has gone to Japan with her twin to do missionary work. Mary Roe has written a clever parody on the Odyssey. Hen amused us all by saying, " No kidding, Amesse is corrupting the whole western U. S. A. with her views in her lectures on the uselessness of Sunday School s! And, listen, Puss has found a duke for her third husband; she wasn ' t satisfied with an earl! " Hen also revealed Decem ' s whereabouts in New Hamp- shire, where she runs a Girls ' Camp. Edna Marland is the mother of three little redheads. Peg Nay has some marvelous Kentucky racers in her riding establish- ment. Squeeze provides hounds for fox-hunts, but she explicitly demands that they have special attention. Mim had just been to an Olympic Meet where Lucy Sanborn was the head coach in all sports. Kay Farlow is their hockey coach, and Jerry is head of basketball. Helen Connolly is president of Boston ' s Women ' s Bridge Club. Hat gave us the news that Mary Ayers has been soliciting for the Y. W. C. A. in the state of Ohio. Dot Spear is in her element, running her own company of sightseeing busses for touring Maine; her central office is in Bangor. Squint and Prip have started collecting all species of goldfish; when they complete their aquarium, they will exhibit it in all the important cities. Harvey is a duchess, isn ' t that just what we expected? Polly wrote Syd that Dot French and Emily have started a kindergarten department at Abbot. One evening Polly tuned in on station W E A F, she heard Dyer ' s voice announcing a lecture to be given by Peg Creelman, who is now 39 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 an eminent authority on sciences. Syd ran into Paton ' s one day and almost collided with Peg Cutler, who is the shop ' s head model. Peg had news that Peg Knowlton, an actress in one act plays, produced by an exclusive Boston Theatre company, fills the house every evening with ardent admirers. Jane Graves is the president of a scientific society in Concord, New Hampshire. And June Hinman is married and lives in a cozy little appartment on Beacon Street. Ellen heard from home that Jane Fitch ' s paintings were being included in a revised edition of Gardener ' s Art Through The Ages. Gertie has performed miraculous operations in a New York hospital. Lee, who came through a serious case of appendicitis under Gertie ' s care, continually philosophizes on the value of women surgeons. Before Ellen came abroad, she went to see Abbot once more, and, en route, stopped in at the " Sign of Castor and Pollux, " a tea shop on Salem Street, run by Ginnie and the Twins. When Ellen bought her travelling clothes, she discovered Bea ' s exclusive gown shop on Boylston Street. Kay Keany ' s poems in the Atlantic Monthly have attracted the notice of many of our class. Ruth Perry has become so expert at the revived game of croquet, that now she translates Greek passages while playing professional matches. Flora expects to celebrate her fifteenth wedding anniversary by a Mediterranean trip. Mary Bell is spending every winter at the Lake Placid Club. Nat has entered her daughter in Abbot for 1943. Nancy, although mar- ried, has kept up her interest in Pre-school education, and lectures on its value in Boston ' s vicinity. " Well, what are you doing in Paris, Lo? " asked Syd. I concealed a protruding paint brush in the lining of my threadbare coat. 40 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Clasa g tattettc (As voted by the Class) Best dressed Infant prodigy Most influential Most capable Cutest Best natured Prettiest .

Ah, yes, they are youngsters " prepping " for Abbot at a boarding nursery. Aren ' t they a jolly lot! There seems to be one little girl, extremely tall for her age, and rather thin, but quite a ring leader. Oh! it ' s Sydna! Who are these two rolling pudgies underfoot, quarreling lustily over a ball? Surely not Dyer and Amesse! Here ' s a sociable group by the little piano in the corner. Now that ' s a child with real talent — see, she even plays with all her fingers. Did you say she was called " Hen " ? That active young miss dancing from side to side is certainly rapid in turning the pages of that upside-down hymnal! I think she is Dot Spear, if I am not mistaken. Here comes little Mim with a hammer! Can she be a disturber of the peace? Why, the little dear, she is merely tapping every hard object with a gentle rap-rap-rap! But no! she mustn ' t hit that bottle of red ink! Stop her! — It ' s too late! Look! we must stop that reddish stream from dripping on baby Jane Graves ' head! Her mother will be hysterical to find a red-headed infant on her return! Now here ' s a dear, with an alphabet book on her lap; listen to her lisping " I. O. U., U. O. I. " ! Little Hat has no idea how much she ' ll have to do with these three interchangeable letters! Look at that bunch! If it isn ' t pretty little Ruth Harvey and Puss — yes, and I believe I see Prip and Decern, dressed up in the nurses ' hats and coats, playing papa, mamma, and family on the window-seat. Just listen to those blue- eyed Twins cooing on the same note of delight! And young Lee and tiny Ginnie giggling as much as they can! And now, did you ever see such charming sport? See little Gertie rocking contentedly on that hobby horse, and Squeeze " woofing " her toy terrier at the stirrups! There ' s Jerry tossing a rubber ball, twice as large as she, into the scrap- basket. This is rather a dangerous sport — That is wee Peggy Creelman behind the gate on the stairs playing post office. My! isn ' t that other child happy to receive so many letters! Did you say she was Bea? So this is Lucy jumping from design to design on the rug. Isn ' t she an active youngster! Why look at little Nancy flirting with Phillip out the window! But see! some youngster is banging the dinner gong in the hall! Well, if it isn ' t Polly, just able to reach it! Watch them all rush down to their luncheon. This little dawdler will surely miss the blessing ! You ' d better hurry, Ellen ! 43 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Snterbale What fun to recall some of the amusing memories of our four days spent at Intervale! This gay time of reaction is our best Senior privilege. One of the best memories, and yet sometimes, when we ' re about to starve during the fourth or fifth period, the most aggravating, is that memory of the delicious food which came in endless quantity for the mere asking or writing. Then, too, there was time to sleep if the funny snow implements for the hill or skiis or toboggans held no enticements. The best fun was the bacon bat with three roaring bonfires beneath cathedral woods, bacon, cheese and toast with other tempting things, followed by songs. Then there was the memorable " trail- ing tour " with its dumps and slidings, and the affection of stray hounds for the last trailers! Between eating, sleeping, and playing we managed to find time to learn our songs to tell the underclassmen what was in store for them under the wonderful management of our friend, Mr. Bassett. 46 T h e A b b o t Circle 1927 Snterbale S ongg Medley (Tune — " Tonight ' s my night with Baby " ) We ' ve been away, we ' re back once more, We ' re cut and bruised, and dreadful sore. But with it all we ' re happy! We ' ve skated, and we ' ve snowshoed, too, We fell till we were black and blue. But with it all we ' re happy! Every night was daytime, The day was such a gay time, Both night and day were playtime. No thought or care was found up there! And if you study hard next year, You ' ll get there too, so never fear, You ' ll shine in every mid-year. (Tune — " You gotta know how to Love " ) But you gotta know, you gotta know how to pass them, You gotta know, you gotta know what to write, You gotta know how to string your teachers a line, They ' ll think it ' s fine, Give you an A+ every time. You gotta know how to keep out of mischief, You gotta smile and always do what ' s right. And we can say that if you follow this rule, You ' ll be the first class in school To do it. (Tune — " Carry me back to Old Virginny 1 ' ) Carry me back to Intervale There ' s where the cookies, steaks, and pies and waffles grow. There ' s where the bells never call you to classes, There ' s where the lights in your rooms will ne ' er burn low. 47 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 (Tune — " So We Could Dance all Night " ) So we could read all night, Not Math or Psyc, But Romances galore. The chef was new, An improvement too O ' er the years that have passed by. The stars were bright, Oh what a sight! For you a treat ' s in store! Oh! boy! what fun! But now it ' s done. Oh! how the time did fly! (Tune — " But a Half Moon is Better Than No Moon " ) But a short time is better than no time, If it is spent up at Intervale. No scruple or moral, No wearisome choral, No gym or rhythmic, No studies at all! Oh! what fun we ' ve had at Intervale! Teachers, teachers, tell to us Why you all make such a fuss; If our lessons we don ' t do, What ' s the difference to you? We all go to bed at night, While you freely burn your light. Why oh why, cannot we, too, Burn the midnight oil like you. You can eat whate ' er you please, Go to town for all your teas. We consume a fruit or two, And then starve the evening through. 48 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 We all shun the trousered sex, Complications thus complex. You can speak with whom you meet, Even men upon the street. But in spite of all our woes, And the absence of our beaux, Though you rarely think we ' re bright, We will say that you ' re all right! (Tune — " A Little Bit of Heaven ' ) Sure, a little bit of Heaven Fell from out the sky one day And it nestled in New Hampshire Not so many miles away. And when the angels found it, Sure, it looked so sweet and fair, They said, " Suppose we leave it For it is so peaceful there. " So, they sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pine trees grow. They ' re the finest ones that can be found No matter where you go. And they placed the mountains round it Just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished, Sure, they called it Intervale! 49 Grow, Golden Beech, Our bonds to hold together. Grow, Golden Beech, Grow to spread your circling shadow. | Raise up your head and grow ; See fair fields spread before you ; The heavens urge and call to you. Grow, Golden Beech, Grow to spread your circling shadow. 1 1 Upward forever, To breathe the wind of living. Upward forever, Lift and spread your branches outward. II Fear not, if storms blow hard; See old boughs there bent skyward ; Then onward grow where skies are starred. Upward forever, Lift and spread your branches outward. Lois Kimball ' 27 50 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 parting ilpmn Father, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me; The changes that are sure to come : I do not fear to see; : But I ask Thee for a present mind Intent on pleasing Thee. I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise. To meet the glad with joyful smiles, : And to wipe the weeping eyes; : And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am, In whatso ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts : To keep and cultivate; : And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord, on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength, To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life : While keeping at thy side; : Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified. 51 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Mentor jffitbbie Cla£ President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer K.

Time: Any day at Abbot. Act I Two giggling girls heard outside. Scales Hello! I wonder who ' s coming now to get weighed. I ' ll be glad when sum- mer comes; then I ' ll get a good long rest. I ' m almost worn out now from being stepped on by all these heavy people. The Slim Miss and the Buxom Lass enter gayly. Slim Miss hastily steps on the scales, with coat and hat still on. Adjusts balance. Scales (Click, click!) What a relief! Would that all my young lady customers were as light and gentle as this one. Ah well, such is a scales ' life. Slim Miss (To Buxom Lass) : Oh, isn ' t this discouraging! I spent all last summer trying to gain ten pounds, and I ' ve lost five of them already. What will my family do? Steps slowly from the scales, and sits down on the chair, a very unhappy Miss. Buxom Lass with hat, coat, and shoes removed, steps clumsily onto the scales. Scales (Clank, clank;) Ouch, ouch, I wish I ' d never been born. Whew! Buxom Lass (To Slim Miss) Look! I ' ve lost a pound — just because I ' ve given up eating potatoes. Isn ' t that wonderful! I ' m never going to the Food Shop or the Manse again. I ' m determined to lose. It must be marvelous to be as thin as you. Slim Miss Oh no, it ' s not. You wouldn ' t like it because your family would always be complaining, and making you eat fattening things. I know, my family is always nagging at me. 57 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Buxom Lass (Now in front of mirror viewing herself). Well, anyway, I ' m going to try to lose; then I ' ll see what they say. Scales I agree with you, Buxom Lass; it would be better all ' round for you to lose weight. The Slim Miss and the Buxom Lass go out, leaving the Scales to suffer in silence. ACT II Scene : The same. Time : Three iveeks later the same young ladies enter. Scales Good, here comes that cute young Miss again. She looks just about the same as she did three weeks ago. Slim Miss Daintily steps on the scales and weighs herself, and happily discovers that she ' s gained a pound and three -quarters. That ' s a bit better, but I have a long way to go yet. Scales But I hope you will always be as gentle. Buxom Lass Again with hat, coat, and shoes removed, and looking somewhat thinner, but who will always be awkward, jumps onto the scales. Quickly pushes the weight up the scales. Scales Oh dear, some people always rub me the wrong way. They are so annoying. Buxom Lass Tipping the scales at six pounds less than the time before. I knew I could lose. Oh, I ' m so thrilled! Jumps up and down on scales. Scales (Badly bruised and shaken up). Goodness, gracious me! Thank goodness she has lost a few pounds, at last, for if she weighed much more, I ' m sure she would have trampled me to pieces. Oh, we who suffer in silence! Nancy Kimball ' 27 58 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 " Jfistf), SceCream anb . . . " A suppressed feeling of excitement pervades the atmosphere of Draper. As the hands approach nine o ' clock general unrest spreads like wild-fire through the building. The door bell buzzes, and an instant later the bell announcing the end of study hour rings. A door slams, a sound of running feet, a triumphant laugh, an excited giggle, and the filtering up from below of a faint, disquieting odor of Lucky Strikes. As the maid rushes along the hall calling out one name repeatedly, I settle back with a relieved sigh to steady work on Latin prose. With slow com- prehension I realize it ' s only Friday night — and callers! Pauline Humeston ' 27 Ccstaap Sunday evening — girls chatter down the steps of Abbot Hall after chapel. I cannot speak. The inspiration of the speaker has lifted my thoughts from their prosaic path. I dream. I soar — . The fresh snow has piled in deep rolling swerving drifts. The bare dark trees are outlined with it. The circle is a huge birthday cake — all frosty white ; the snow is squeaky under our feet. The beauty of it all leaves me breathless. I am opposite the lovely gate with its soft light; I look back at Abbot Hall — white columns — round shining light — snow- covered steps. The frail feathery birch tree is silhouetted against the black sky. The diamond stars — the little dipper — they make my heart almost burst. My precious little time is going — I am almost to the door. I never am able to com- plete the magic circle. I am dismayed. The spell has gone. More inspiration — more changing shadows on snow — more stars — next Sunday night? Mary Belle Maxwell ' 27 W t Cfjapel Pell There ' s a bustle in the morning That starts the busy day; There ' s a hurry-worry atmosphere That drives all thought away; There ' s a bell that clangs its warning To those who loiter late; Who can forget the chapel bell That rings as sure as Fate! Helen Connolly ' 27 59 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Refugee $arabe A gong sounds and crowds of people pour forth from the big brick building. They shove and jostle each other in a useless attempt to hasten the leaders. A fitful murmur of conversation arises. One hears various languages: French, German, Spanish, and even English. The bent figures with heavily laden arms toil painfully over the icy pavement. Progress is slow. The wintry blast chills them; they shiver and gather their shawls more closely about their heads. One wonders how many nationalities are represented — in Abbot ' s daily refugee parade. Miriam Houdlette ' 27 Btet anb ftealtf) It seems, as I look about school, that the girls are a particularly nice type. On the whole, they are a good-looking group, well dressed and of about the same conventional personality. I personally think, however, that dieting both of food and of people, when not required, is rather obnoxious. Cocoa, toast, soft boiled eggs, half an orange for breakfast ; creamed chicken on toast without mushrooms and peppers, custard pie and lettuce for lunch; tomato bisque, mashed potatoes and veal, creamed canned peas, and Washington pie for dinner, do not impress me as particularly enjoyable. I am in favor of a few green peppers and caraway seeds. When letters are given at the end of the athletic season, the speech, for which we clap until our hands are raw, is " I ' m glad to have played for Abbot " . All very true, and nice — but rather a tame speech to hand out to such enthusiastic rooters. Why not be generous to these poor unfortunates who beg for cake? " Oh, I ' m afraid of making a fool of myself! " Why not play the fool occasion- ally if it means a sign of self-development. Everyone, who is interesting, makes mistakes — if only to prove he is not a machine. After all, if we never put on the new shoes until we ' ve walked in them, are we ever going to put them on, let alone walk in them? Sydna White ' 27 jfflardb WinH March winds blew me into the world — perhaps that ' s why I love them so. When I am feeling blue and useless, a mere, unnecessary bit of dust, a cold, vigor- ous blast of wind lifts up my spirits as surely as it lifts my skirts. I sit on the hot, familiar radiator thinking, wondering, puzzling — I step out the door and a sudden gust releases a hidden spring within me so that, jack-in-the-box-like, some- thing breaks loose. Ella Stonebraker ' 27 60 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Great drifts of soft blue rain Young lovers, arms entwined, Beating ' gainst the gray stone Whispering in the shadowed depths Of age-old churches. Of dim, leafy parks. Uneven roofs of broken slate Calm river flowing slowly Dripping down upon the din Watching ever o ' er the city And hurry of the City. Settled in sleep. Gertrude Drummond ' 27 an " » " Jfor abbot trte {With thanks to the inspiration of Kipling s " If " ) If while you are at School, you always proffer Your friendly, helpful spirit at its best, Not only to your roommate, also offer The same to all your teachers and the rest; If you can take a pleasure in successes Cf all your fellow classmates, without guile, Then you ' ll be better able, when woe presses, To take your bumps and bruises with a smile.

Lois Kimball ' 27 61 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Hfymtibap, December txteentl) Clang, clang, clang. The rising bell starts on its daily 6.50 time. It doesn ' t ring once, nor twice, but three times, for that is its special privilege. As I rub sleepy eyes I wonder why it seems less mournful than usual — it is on the verge of being merry. Surely it can ' t be the weather for, unless my eyes deceive me, it is black and dreary, exceptionally cold, and rather hazy. What can be the occa- sion for all this mirth? Then suddenly I recall a few incidents of the previous evening ' s occupations. " Taking down all banners and leaving nothing but framed pictures on the wall " , wildly cramming the bureau drawers into the closet, and finding " just one more thing " that must go into the trunk, finally closing the trunk only to think of numerous articles that were forgotten. Why, of course! How could I forget? This is the day we have all looked forward to for so long. We are going home for Christmas vacation! Before Jack Robinson himself could have uttered his name, I am out of bed. None of the usual excuses are offered for remaining in that warm spot. Down goes the window and on go the lights (if we are fortunate enough to have them). Dressing hastily, I put the last things into my suitcase and call someone in to sit on the top while I endeavor to close it. Then the breakfast bell and one hundred and fifty girls, all dressed in their very best, flock to the dining room where there ensues a hectic twenty min- utes. I try to eat but find most of my time occupied in watching the hands of the clock " jump " . At last it is ten of, and there is much pushing back of chairs; the " good morning line " forms and in two shakes the dining room is empty. Next comes chapel; twenty minute classes (which seem like twenty hours); and finally at ten-thirty we hear the last bell we are to endure for three weeks! There is a rush to rooms for suitcases, hats, gloves, and pocketbooks. At the radiator stands Miss Bailey — shaking hands with all the young ladies as they troop past her to the waiting Morrissey busses which are to convey them to the 10:52 train. It would be hard to find a happier group than these homeward-bound Abbot girls.

And there through the midnight hours, With laughter of silvery bells — (As they sip from their acorn cups The wine the humming-bird sells) — They scatter abroad sweet dreams On the wings of the wee fire-fly. Or sprinkle star dust around From their airship, a dragon fly. And when the dawn comes stealing, To their flow ' ry beds they creep And under a rose petal cover They pass the day in sleep. Louise Pope ' 27 £f)e H acreb Circle Do you wonder what that little old man walking down School Street and look- ing this way is thinking? Let me tell you. He is thinking what well-behaved, perfectly-trained, and considerate girls the Abbot girls are. He is watching us pour out of chapel and turn to the left, following the drive which circles around to the McKeen building. Not one girl has attempted to cut across that wide expanse of green lawn in front of chapel and yet it would be much the quicker way. just to " dive " across there to McKeen. Xot " since his day " has he seen youth so faultless. Can it be a mighty aversion to getting to classes? Some possibility in that, but little does the old man realize that that circle of grass is sacred, never so much as set foot on except on very, very gay occasions. Perhaps if he had come a little nearer he would have felt the hallowed atmosphere about it, for I think it is noticeable. Unaware, however, the old man goes on. feeling that. perhaps, after all, there is a little hope for the coming generation. Beatrice Stephens ' 27 63 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Jllarfesi Marks are perfectly awful things! Just when I think I ' ve been quite wise, In happy mood, — heart in the skies With lifted chin, and haughty eyes Then, marks are perfectly awful things! When I have worked both hard and long; With care composed a theme or song To get a C seems truly wrong. Yes, marks are perfectly awful things! Are we now working just for A? And does this kind of study pay? Let ' s work for knowledge day by day, For marks are perfectly awful things! Ellen Faust ' 27 $arabi£e 3n 2000 J3. S. Charon jingled his golden oar locks in my face. " Now, where did you come from, Mortal? " " From Abbot Academy, " I replied meekly. Airplanes having been perfected, I had a notion I should like to fly in one to visit the Elysian Fields. Charon, upon hearingthat Abbotwasmy AlmaMater, im- mediately guided me safely across the miry horrors to the gate. There, I beheld all the faculty, angels, everyone of them! But, no, Mr. Howe was denied ad- mission for he had forgotten the name of the school; therefore Charon, in a state of suspicion, sent him away. Just within the gates sat Miss Baynes going over the heavenly allowances, and Miss Hopkins correcting the gold leaf file of inmates and visitors. Upon per- ceiving me, she exclaimed, " Why, are you here? What a surprise! " " Oh, no! Just visiting, Miss Hopkins. " Then my guide led me further into the great Paradise where Miss Johnson appeared and grasped my pulse in greeting. " I must see that you are carrying no evil into our land. You seem quite all right, but I shall give you a golden pill as a safeguard. " We left her regarding my rubberless feet skeptically. My guide threw a cloak over my shoulders, thus rendering me invisible. I was then left to wander about the cloudy vault at will. Suddenly Miss Bailey floated around a golden pillar. 64 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 " Good morning, young ladies! " Circling the group, I discovered Miss Mason parting the cloud beneath her. I gasped. She dropped her spectacles through, and timed their downfall until they plopped into Pomps ' Pond. She beamed upon Miss Kelsey in triumph. " I knew it increased thirty-two feet per second, per second! " But Miss Kelsey heard not a word. She was absorbed in following the records of her first Abbot class since their arrival in the heavenly altitudes, and was quite delighted to find that one of the class had just been awarded an Honor " H " . Passing on, I heard a familiar phrase. " How many of you are quite sure, " and surely enough, there was Miss Ham- mond philosophizing in the midst of a group consisting of Miss Chickering, Mrs. Craig, Miss Burt, Miss Baker and Miss Robinson. These five then pondered on their own feelings. Miss Chickering was mumbling rather vacantly, " Was I, or was I not? That is the question. " Mrs. Craig was crooning French poetry to a golden furred pussy. Miss Burt, looking amongst the clouds, suddenly upset Miss Baker ' s golden easel, and cried, " Look, isn ' t that just like the sea? " Immediately, Miss Baker commenced to transform the top of the South Church into a foamy sea of azure blue. Gazing across a cloudy plain, I saw Miss Carpenter and Miss Ling aesthetic- ally interpreting some heavenly strains produced by Miss Friskin at a solid gold piano, and by Miss Nichols and Miss McDuffee bowing on their ivory violins. Mrs. Burnham was humming as she watched. A little aside Mrs. Van Ness was painting the dancing figures with the brilliant addition of fiery wings. Madame Riest was discovered, entirely happy that she had found some one who could understand her rapid loquacity. About noon, I came across Miss Butterfield and Miss Putnam preparing a gorgeous luncheon of golden baked beans and brown bread, with a goldfish salad as a relish. Miss Jenks, who forgot that animals have no souls, was searching every where for Pegasus before Miss Moses should find him. Faint aromas of coffee drew me to a choice spot where Miss Grimes was drawing buckets of coffee from a hidden well. At a tinkle on the dot of five o ' clock, the angelic host of faculty gathered around this grove, and were served all the coffee they could swallow. The sun had gone down so that the golden pillars lost their brilliant lustre. I knew I should be departing. At the gate, Miss Bancroft was sorting over the spiritual messages that were ready for flight. As I turned to get a last glimpse of those celestial fields, Mr. Scannell switched on the stars. L.

The rubber sheets which refuse to swathe my natural modesty, the cold and slippery marble partitions and the slim serpent-like pipe which rears its flat round head over my quivering body are all to be avoided if possible. The first spurt of icy water which juts from the serpent pipe stings like an arrow and awakens me to shrieking dancing activity. Back and forth I jump, first pressed flat against one marble side, then clinging madly to the rubber sheet, vainly trying to escape the frozen stream. Not until reduced to the state of an icicle am I free and allowed to skip away, still shivering and rejoicing even in the comfort of a starched towel. Margaret Cutler ' 27 HL )t king ' s!

T ' s and donned white sweaters and skirts and Abbot blue ties to wave in the frosty breeze. A great swarm of little yellow and white caps heralded the Bradford girls ' arrival across the circle. After the welcoming songs, each girl found her guest and rushed for bank seats at the tennis match. Both singles and doubles were tense and close. Gertie and Jean backed each other into a victory for Abbot. After croquet and clock golf, we went to Davis Hall where we dined in royal style. Before basketball and hockey, each school sang outside to Miss Coates and Miss Bailey, getting primed for the afternoon ' s contests. The basketball game was swift and well-matched. Abbot was thrilled with her third victory of the day. Later came the hockey game. The teams flew, first toward one end of the field, then to the other! Everyone, even the P. A. boys, waited breathlessly for the final score — the last goal made the victory for Bradford. The total score for the day was a tie! When Bradford left, there were many of us who wished they were not going to leave Abbot the coming June, for they wanted to compete with our sister school once more — Bradford Day is such fun ! 73 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 t 1 Frances Flagg Saye Hirooka Adelaide Black ftonor " J8 " -1926 74 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Frances Gould, Treasurer Margaret Nivison, Secretary Mary Ayers, Vice-President Pauline Humeston, President gtobot Cfjrisitian tesiociation 75 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 L.

The play is perfectly suited for girls, acting of both men ' s and ladies ' parts, and those particu- lar parts seemed to be conceived just for the girls who played them. The play is of some very sweet ladies who lived on the most genteel street of the town, at the time of the Napoleonic wars. It is Susan Throssell ' s ambition to have her adored younger sister, Phoebe of the ringlets, wear the wedding dress which Susan made in high hopes for her own wedding, but which never was used. Valentine Brown, the man of Phoebe ' s heart, enlists for nine-years ' service in the army, thinking that it will thrill the sisters. He calls to tell his " great secret " and bid them farewell. Unfortunately, the sisters have guessed that this secret is that he loved Phoebe, and, in short, he is going to propose. Valentine, however, unaware of Phoebe ' s love for him, and of the heartbreak which he has caused, takes his leave. As the sisters ' money, invested because of Valentine ' s advice, has been lost, they open a small school for genteel children only. We find, to our dismay, nine years later that Phoebe has become old and weary. Valentine Brown, now Captain Brown, returns in hopes of taking the sisters to the ball. Saddened by Phoebe ' s age, and, of course, thinking that she would not care to go to the ball, he leaves the house. Phoebe, weary of being prim, dons a party dress; holds a ball of her own in the school room, when — Brown returns. As Valentine does not recognize her, she introduces herself as her own mythical niece. Valentine, having fallen for her charms, whisks her away to the ball. While Phoebe, or rather " Livvy " , arouses " frenzy in the breasts of all the males, " Valentine discovers, in watching Livvy, that he has been in love all these nine years with Phoebe, who is so lovely, a " modest violet " in comparison with this flaunting flower, " Livvy " , and sternly informs Phoebe of his discovery. Weary of this deception, Phoebe hides " Livvy " in the bed-room on pretense of being ill. Because of the watching of the neighbors, " Livvy " seems to be a fixture, for they cannot send her home. Valentine, to the amazement of the sisters, who think that he does not guess that Phoebe and " Livvy " are one, re- moves " Livvy " by packing a dummy in his carriage with the maid to deceive the watchers across the street — so, " gets rid of ' Livvy ' . " To the satisfaction of 87 T h Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 all concerned, Phoebe Throssell becomes Phoebe Brown and they all live happily on. Ruth Harvey, portrayed Phoebe of the ringlets, Phoebe the school marm, and Miss Livvy the flirt, with equal distinction. She was adorable as Phoebe; weary- hearted as the mistress; a vivacious flirt as Livvy. It is hard to say which Phoebe was best played. Ruth proved her skill by sustaining throughout the play, the true Phoebe at heart. Susan, played by Persis Goodnow, captured our hearts quite as much as Phoebe. We loved her confusion and quick exits when perplex- ing problems faced her, and her conscienceless stories toward the end of the deception to protect her Phoebe. A very fine performance, Persis! Ah! That Valentine Brown — The dashing Mr. Brown. We congratulate Ruth Nason on conquering a difficult piece of characterization. She was one of the most successful " men " we have ever seen on Abbot ' s stage. And as for the Misses Willoughby and Turnbull, they were perfect as the old maids. Mrs. Gray, with her record of successful productions, enabled the Seniors, through her tireless coaching, to present a thoroughly enjoyable play presented in a thoroughly enjoyable way.

Jfflotfjer On Tuesday evening, January 18th, the Senior-Middlers presented, in honor of the Senior class, three one-act plays. As usual, Mrs. Gray ' s choice of plays was well made. The first play Pierrot ' s Mother by Glenn Hughes, as its title suggests, is a quaint fantastic sketch, giving us a glimpse in the candlelit hours, of a misunder- stood Pierrot and Pierrette who wander apart in search of ginger-cakes and feather-beds in which to sink their heavy hearts. Fortunately for them, they both wander, quite unknowingly, to the same house for shelter. Pierrot ' s mother reads between the lines, and the curtain drops with Pierrot and Pierrette happy once more, and setting off to cheer the world with their song and dance. Elizabeth Jackson, the mother, made us all wish we could have her tuck us into a feather bed and feed us ginger-cakes and tea. Pierrot, played by Christine Bliss, was so charming a figure, that we could hardly understand his dear Pier- rette ' s falling out with him. Pierrette, played by Dorothea Dow, was a half- fairy-like creature who realized our imaginary ideal of Pierrette most delightfully. The Cast: Pierrot Christine Bliss Pierrette Dorothea Dow Pierrot ' s mother . . . Elizabeth Jackson 89 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Mite Citation The second play, Miss Civilization by Richard Harding Davis, proved to be a modern comedy which kept us shivering with thrills and shaking with laughter. In order to keep her invalid mother from having a shock, and three burglars from escaping with loot stolen from her house, Alice Gardner, an at- tractive young girl, known to us as Jean Swihart, entertains three uninvited ruffian guests until the police arrive and arrest them. The burglars were not the sort of men you would like to meet on a lonely road. They were played with much dash and color by Josephine Paret, Virginia Gay and Katherine Willauer. We were so sorry when the play was over! The Cast: Alice Hatch . Harry . Reddy .

Here the Senior-Middlers cleverly acted a rather difficult play — for amateurs. The odd situations, and twists and turns of a superstitious royal court, caused by the innocent child ' s play of two youngsters was very aptly presented by a well-picked cast. The cooperation of this cast should be applauded ; it was one of the finest points of the evening. The Cast: King Chief Prophet First Prophet Second Prophet First Sentry Second Sentry Boy Girl Chamberlain Stranger First Spy Second Spy . Third Spy Boy Attendant Eleanor Leech Louise Hyde Emily Sloper Susan Ripley Katherine Ross Janet Cunningham Louise Anthony Constance Rundlett Eleanor Gordon Jean Frederick . . Nancy Sherman Katherine Adams Priscilla Whittemore Elizabeth Hollis 91 The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 a. 20- A. $laps t£tng of tfje jHoon Lady Gregory ' s Rising of the Moon was impressively presented by the Abbot Dramatic Society. How the sergeants prowled about in search of the criminal who, in the guise of a ragged man, diplomatically swerved the head Sergeant ' s lust for reward to sympathy for the criminal, thus enabling the man to escape. Mary Alice Mcintosh, as the chief Sergeant played her part well and with a zest. Ellen Faust, the Ragged Man, brought out all that character ' s shrewdness and wit. The Cast: Sergeant A Ragged Man Policeman B. Policeman X Mary Alice Mcintosh Ellen Faust Gertrude Drummond Sylvia Miller mMm Wimt The audience was transformed from an uncanny suspense in The Rising of The Moon to a state of delightful amusement by the comedy, Tickless Time by Susan Glaspel. The absurd fancy of Ian Joyce was comically and cleverly acted by Sydna White as a most realistic fanatic inventor of a sun dial. Ruth Harvey as his wife, whose pet clocks, watches, and even her cook ' s kitchen alarm clock were buried by Ian, was charming. She was finally contented with her restored treasures. The Cast: Ian Joyce, who has made a sundial Eloise Joyce, wedded to the sundial Mrs. Stubbs, a native Eddy Knight, a standardized mind Alice Knight, a standardized wife Annie, who cooks by the Joyce ' s clock Sydna White Ruth Harvey Marjorie Knowlton Sylvia Miller Pauline Humeston Gertrude Drummond 92 FEATURES T h Abbot C i r c I e 19 2 7 Ad A ms McIn T osh Nas H Mil L ers Sh E rman Houdle T te Pop E S ANBORN Whi T e Sh U ltz Gordo N Niv E son Na S ii S T EPHENS Tob E Y R IPLEY Na S on Goo D now Ha R vey F A ust Dru Mmond A nthony Knowl T on M I LLER McInto S h WhiTe Hume S ton Cree L man Sn E ll S A NBORN Pe R ry Drummo N d Fr E derick Goo D now 93 27 ' s Cross Wat $u??le DBS El (E I u g 1 V leI BaLaJ H |e| 7 c | H | A | s | E.
