The ' Abb-ot Circle 19 2 7 QTfje Mentor Eettect BEFORE AND AFTER — A Play in Two Acts Dramatis Personae A Slim Miss A Buxom Lass Fairbanks Scales Scene: The Corrective Room containing a pair of Fairbanks Scales flanked by a chair and a full length mirror. 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
