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 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 g f)otoer part) Were it not for the delightful reaction experienced, I should absolutely refuse to take the compulsory shower bath after " gym " , for there is a repelling coldness and utter disregard for my comfort which makes showers most unappealing. 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! Cljasie The King, Chamberlain, and all the Lords and Fellows and other Folk Rudd into a Littlefield where DeCamp was located near a Fountain. A Small Bird was Chickering over head, a cheery Piper of Bliss. The Chase began with much Noyes. The Fox kept searching for Marland up and down the Vail and Ling between the White Graves where the Stone- brakers were at work. Oh! Howe the King swore in French and put on Ayers! Never was there Bornemann Osgood a shot as he. Levering his gun, he fired, the Fox Ross and fell in the Mead. " Sherman " , said he, " The Pope will Eaton that Cunningham! " The Page carried the animal to the Stewart at the House, where they began to Skinner, and then Brown it, and Baker on a Blunt Spear. When it was Dunn, the Pope asked, " Watson, are you Shaw you didn ' t Burnham? " " Nay " replied the Butler, " Houdlette it cook till it Burns? Then his Highness and everyone Ellis began to Rockwell and let out a Goodell of laughter. 66
