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 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 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
