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 RUTH MARGARET NASON Medford, Massachusetts Two years Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Arm Band ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Fidelio ' 26 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Secretary-Treasurer Odeon ' 27 French Play ' 26 Odeon ' 27 Advisory Board ' 27 Prom Committee ' 27 Ruth is the one and only violinist in the class, but, even with this distinction, she rarely plays for us. 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 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. A. A, ' 27 Student Council ' 26, ' 27 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Third Vice-President Student Council ' 26 Class President ' 25 Class Vice-President ' 24 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Senior-Middle Plays ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Lucy is our class mystery. 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! FLORA ELLIOT SKINNER " Flo " , " Flori " Wakefield, Massachusetts Mount Holyoke Four years Class Vice-President ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Athletic Council ' 26 Head of Baseball ' 26 Hockey Team ' 24 Second Hockey Team ' 25 Hockey Numerals ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 French Play ' 26 Advisory Board ' 26 " A " Society ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 24, ' 25 Bible Group Leader ' 24, ' 25, ' 26 Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Vice-President Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 Isn ' t it usually true that the pleasingly plump are exceptionally good hearted and merry? 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
