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 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 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
