" Kay " of the Psycho- analysis fame, breaking dishes on the stage, with as much gusto as she breaks hearts off of it. Kay and her roommate play at being Juliettes every Friday night. See the advantage of having windows over- looking the guest entrance, " Oi Oi. " That is the remark that issues from 22-24 most frequently. I tell you it ' s a saving grace these two have. If Europe doesn ' t look depleted after Issac gets through gyping it then someone will have reformed her in the mean- while. FRANCES ELEANOR ANDERSON " Fran " Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Wellesley Two years Odeon ' 27 Fidelio ' 27, ' 28 " Huh? Oh, I don ' t know. " Thus Fran, with a broad grin hides her knowledge of the scenes of Hamlet. But in Math she never does. Nine times out of ten she ' s the first one finished and the worst of it is, her answer is always right. She has the most wonderful hair. Technically, we suppose it should be called red; but it is really a wonderful golden brown. Perhaps that is why she is so good-natured, or maybe it ' s because in one year she changed from an inmate of Sunset to a full-fledged Senior. 10 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 CLARICE ISABELLE BARTLETT " Sis ' : Freeport, New York Connecticut College Two years Fidelio ' 28 Chairman of Entertainment Committee ' 28 Choir ' 27, ' 28 School Cheer Leader ' 28 Basketball Team, ' 27, ' 28 Class Cheer Leader ' 28 Class Track Team ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 28 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Sis is one of those lively little girls that makes us wonder if there ' s anything she can ' t do. When playing basketball she flies around so rapidly that we never know what it is all about until we find she has scored again. As Chairman of the Entertainment Committee, she has given us some pleasant evenings and one hair-raising experience at the Costume party. Added to the amazing array of accomplishments is her ability to swing a cheer leading stick. She can! CHRISTINE BLISS " Bunny " Burlington, Vermont University of Vermont Two years Senior Vice-President ' 28 Basketball Team ' 28 Class Book Board ' 28 Second Basketball Team ' 27 Editor-in-Chief Northfield Delegate ' 27 Senior Mid Plays ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 A. D. S. ' 27 ' 28 A. D. S. Plays ' 28 Hiking Leader ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Do you want to laugh? Go find Bunny, she will keep you in stitches; she is endowed with that rare quality which Miss Chickering defines as ' ' Bliss humour. " Being happily endowed by nature with a long and limber form as well as " smooth " looks she does active service on the Abbot stage as a man. Her ability to be at the right spot at the right moment while playing basketball is of great value to the fortunate Gargoyles. To the best of our knowledge this includes all of her most well known idiosyncras- ies except " Life. " Some day when feeling bold non- chalantly remark that " Judge " has it all over " Life. " H The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 KATHERINE BORNEMANN " Kay " Montclair, New Jersey Senior Play ' 28 Two years Kay is one of our class musicians and is among the few taking the music course. The practice rooms will miss her next year. We never yet went into the music studio without finding her there. Her room- mate and Louise Tobey testify that she ' s very kind hearted and easv to get along with. Quite a rep. Kay! RUTH ALLERTON CUSHMAN " Cusbie " " Rufus " Sharon, Massachusetts Wellesley Two years Fidelio ' 27 Sec-Treas Les Beaux Arts ' 28 Numerals ' 27 Class Book Board ' 28 Les Beaux Arts ' 27, ' 28 Class Treasurer ' 27, ' 28 Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28 Much rushing and perhaps a toothbrush skidding along the corridor — it is only Ruth and her room- mate running for room No. 36, as the lights grow dimmer. It is this nightly sprint that keeps Ruth in condition for spring track. Ruth spent the past summer in Europe and returned to school a week late, but, just the same, she made the Honor Roll — per usual. She handles our class monies in a way that seems to please Miss Mason and so, of course, pleases us. 12 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 DOROTHEA MAE DOW " Dottie " Montclair, New Jersey Three years Fidelio ' 26 A. S. D. Play ' 28 A. D. S. ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 Draper Dramatics ' 28 " Who is playing the lead? " Dottie, of course. What Abbot play is complete without her? Not the least famed of her performances was at the Senior Picnic. When we want a chaperon we will engage her. When looking for Dot Dow search first, last, and always in the Senior Parlor. Here she may always be found in the exact center of a circle of girls. We hear she ' s surrounded at home quite as much. LOIS ADELAIDE DUNN Laddie Lock Haven, Pennsylvania Wellesley Advisory Board ' 28 Two years ' Honor Roll ' 28 Laddie, will you please take your nose out of that Latin grammar long enough for me to do a write-up about you? That girl does study and the nice part of it is that she obtains the desired results. Once in a while, though, you hear that trickle of laughter run up the scale when she and Betty cavort together. And, she ' s the kind that will give you a cracker when you ' re just starving — pretty much all right. 13 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 JEAN OLIVE FREDERICK " Jean " Greenlawn, Long Island Noyes School of Rhythm Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Courant Board ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Editor-in-Chief ' 27, ' 28 French Play ' 28 Three years Senior Mid Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Senior Play ' 28 Fidelio ' 26 " Miss Hammond, don ' t you agree? " This is a sign to settle back comfortably for an early morning snooze while Jean and Miss Hammond discuss the relative merits of this and that. Ah Jean, how many predicaments you ' ve brought us out of by keeping our fair instructress thus engrossed. Quite seriously, however, you have something to talk about and your literary compositions show it. We shall expect to see in the next ten years a new magazine on the news- stands; and may it be as successful as our own Courant which you manage so well. Class Treasurer ' 25 Choir ' 28 Q. E. D.

She ' s only President of the " A " Society and Q. E. D. and Business Manager of the Class Book and Secretary of A. A. A. and in the Senior Play and a few little things like that — really nothing. Gee Gee and Jo Jo are an example to all roommates for their really remarkable dispositions. If they ever disagree we never know it, that is, of course, except on the subject of Harvard and Yale. Run down Harvard to Gee Gee and she ' ll not love you. Aside from that she ' ll stand almost anything! 14 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 FRANCES BRYDEN GOULD " Fran " Class Secretary ' 26 Q. E. D. ' 27, ' 28 Advisory Board ' 27 Merit Committee ' 27, ' 28 President Student Council Bible Group Leader ' 26 Hockey Numerals ' 27 Winchester, Massachusetts Three years Class President ' 26 Treasurer A. C. A. ' 27 Student Council ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 27 28 Senior Play ' 28 Hiking Leader ' 28 Second Hockey Team ' 28 What would we do without Fran? Who else could so successfully preside over Student Council meetings? Who else would receive fifty-three page letters and daily cablegrams? Who, other than Fran, could so determinedly defend the Gargoyles ' goal, as, almost hidden behind her enormous shin guards and armour she valiantly moves her hockey stick. Although Fran can look very dignified and solemn, anyone who lives on the second floor front can, perhaps, explain those undignified chortles that re-echo through the corridor occasionally. MARGARET GRAHAM " Peg " Andover, Massachusetts Mt. Holyoke Four years Arm Band ' 25 Entertainment Committee ' 28 Class Vice-President ' 26 Athletic Council ' 28 Baseball Numerals ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 A. D. S. ' 28 Hockey Numerals ' 26, ' 27 A. D. S. Play ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Carnival Committee ' 27 Head of Hockey ' 28 Third Vice-President of Student Government ' 28 Hockey Team ' 28 Peg does have such a hard time bringing up all the day scholars in the way they should go. Between that and being Psycho-analyzed now and then she ' s rather busy. Her front row seat in Chapel is very wearing on her, she says. We ' ve noticed that she often works off steam in English Class with Diz. Last, but not least, of her accomplishments is Hockey. Lead her to the Hockey field, hand her a stick, and watch her go! 15 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 ELIZABETH HOLLIS ' W Lynn, Massachusetts University of Vermont Baseball Numerals ' 25 Head of Volley Ball ' 27 Class Basketball ' 26 Head of Basketball ' 28 Entertainment Com. ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Four years Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 Class Secretary ' 26 Club Basketball ' 27 Odeon ' 27, ' 28 Advisory Board ' 27 Athletic Council ' 27, ' 28 2nd Vice-President Student Government ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Numerals ' 27 " A " Society ' 28 Class Book Board ' 28 Senior Play Did some one make a remark that thrills the school with its brilliance and wit? Diz, of course. We can count on her to liven up the deadliest moment in the Senior parlor. She coaches basketball most ably: she creates poetry, prose or what have you; she sports at the prom on the hill. How about. that, Diz? And as for any riding party — Diz may be found with her horse ' s nose one-half inch ahead of Mr. Phillips. We hear she advocates mud baths en route as a health cure and recreation. LOUISE HERMANCE HYDE " Weegie " Ware, Massachusetts Mt. Holyoke Four years A. A. A. Treasurer ' 28 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Sec-Treasurer " A " Society ' 28 French Play ' 28 Athletic Council ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Hockey Team ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Hockey Numerals ' 25, ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 25 Volley Ball Team ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Advisory Board ' 27 Fidelio ' 27 Arm Band ' 25 Bang, bang, shouts, squeals! If you open the door to number 53 you will probably find Weegie and others squatting on the floor playing " I doubt it. " This is often the case, especially when she comes to some- body ' s room to make a pie bed, or to hide alarm clocks set for some unearthly hour, or to turn the whole place generally upside down. And once in a while she is serious, too, for instance when she generously offers you a piece of bread spread with cheese and cold cream. But (outside of her playful moments) Weegie is a good sport and a fine friend. 16 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 ELIZABETH MARSH JACKSON " Betty " Springfield, Massachusetts Pratt Institute Two years Fidelio ' 27, ' 28 Choir ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 " I tell you, you cannot force me to do it: " Betty isn ' t defying Miss Bailey, only practicing her favorite elocution for the week. The masterful tones ring out over the transom and we wonder if poor Laddie isn ' t getting killed in the excitement. Never mind, Betty, if we practiced as much as you do we might get a " Sir Andrew " and do it as well. nt mgr-. :!: , h9 DOROTHY LOUISE JENNINGS " Dot " Andover, Massachusetts New England School of Design Two years Volley Ball Team ' 27 Dot Jennings is famous for those curls which so gracefully adorn her head. She seems rather quiet and demure, but with those whom she knows she is very talkative and amusing. Being a day scholar she has not has a chance to know many of the Seniors intimately, but at Intervale we all came to know her better. We hear she was one of those who went on the wild escapade across the river. Isn ' t that proof enough of her endurance? 17 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 BEATRICE LANE " Bea " Fitchburg, Massachusetts Lesley Three years Fidelio ' 27, ' 28 Track Team ' 26, ' 27 2nd Basketball Team ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Arm Band ' 26 Numerals ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Of Bea ' s accomplishments three predominate. First, her athletics, second, her singing and third, her roommate. Her proficiency in track is shown by the fact that she broke Abbot ' s record in the broad jump in ' 27. As for her singing, she has favored us with many a solo in Davis Hall. Finally she is seldom, if ever, seen without her roommate and where one is there the other is also. Although they really do not look alike Lane and Leavitt are often mistaken for each other. We have no fear for Bea out in the cold world, but we do wonder what she ' ll do minus Helen. HELEN ELIZABETH LEAVITT " Helen " Haverhill, Massachusetts Three years Class Book Board ' 28 Senior Play ' 28 Aeolian Society ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28 Arm Band ' 26 Numerals ' 27 Helen is one of the " Strong Silent " members of our class. In Class Book Board meetings where the rest of us talk all the time she gives her valued opinion only when asked for it. The faculty think that ' s a quality others of us might cultivate. Helen is a competent member of our infant Society and she cer- tainly deserves the honor. How fortunate that she and Bea are on the same page! 18 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 ELEANOR LEECH " Wheech " Providence, Rhode Island Three years Odeon 78 Choir ' 28 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Calendar Committee ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 Eleanor ' s favorite spot is a corner of Mrs. Burn- ham ' s studio, but that is not remarkable when one has as fine a voice as Eleanor. We always look for- ward to a Students ' Recital when we hear she is to perform. Eleanor is invaluable as hostess to the returning D. O. G ' s of recent years. She makes them feel at home again in our low-heeled, cotton-stock- inged midst. We hear she ' s one of the shining lights of Odeon too. MARGARET BOE NIVISON " Nivvy " Waterville, Maine Wellesley Baseball Numerals ' 25 Fidelio ' 25, ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Advisory Board ' 27 Volley Ball Team ' 27 Aeolian Society ' 28 Sec-Treas-Aeolian ' 28 Choir ' 26, ' 27 Arm Bars ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Bible Group Leader ' 26 Four years Honor Roll, ' 25, ' 26 Class President ' 26 Secretary A. C. A. ' 27 Posture Representative ' 28 Northfield Delegate ' 26, ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Arm Band ' 25 Numerals ' 27 Posture Committee ' 27, ' 28 Nivvy has the cutest clothes and never a wrinkle or a pleat out of press. She certainly dresses with distinction, and, speaking of distinction, she ' s our star organist and music is her chief interest. She plays an active part in Aeolian and is busy every minute because, aside from her music, she ' s preparing for College. We know she ' s going to be a wonderful organist someday. We have great hopes for you, Nivvy! 19 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 JOSEPHINE GILBERT PARET " Jo " Moorestown, New Jersey Smith Three years Class Treasurer ' 27 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 French Play ' 26 Choir ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 28 Dr aper Dramatics ' 27 Head of Croquet ' 27 French PJay ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Abbot Birthday Committee ' 27 Arm Band ' 26 Archery Team ' 28 Athletic Council ' 27 " Oh my dear, I ' ve just been for a ride with Miss Burt! " Yes, we envy you, Jo, but we can ' t all go to Symphony at the same time. On the stage or off Jo is never at a loss for what to say. We remember her as Harry in Miss Civilisation and what would certain stunts have been without her? Jo is not only a talker but also a writer and we are all acquainted with her poetry. Her ambition, we hear, is to be an authoress. Keep it up and you ' ll get there, Jo. MARY OLIVE PIPER " Pipe " Sudbury, Massachusetts Two years Fidelio ' 28 Second Hockey Team ' 27, ' 28 Choir ' 28 Baseball ' 27 Numerals ' 28 Club Hocke y Team, ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 28 Class Secretary ' 28 Senior Play ' 28 Draper Dramatics ' 28 " I ' d like to see anyone try to make me " and every- one in the Senior Parlor is very quiet while Pipe goes on the war-path. But she ' s really very calm and effi- cient when calling the roll in class meetings and she writes beautiful records of the last one. Her pet aversions are being tickled and French. One day one of the faculty found out her views on being tickled. The rashest thing she ' s done yet is to decide to let her hair grow. 20 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 MARION BEECHER QUIN " Marion " New Haven, Connecticut Connecticut College Two years Fidelio ' 27 A. D. S. Play ' 28 A. D. S. ' 27, ' 28 " Oh, you are so bourgeois! " and with a superior air of scorn Mrs. B-rewster reduces poor Mabel to a humble victim of psycho-analysis. Marion was a star all right in " Suppressed Desires. " She will be a second Mrs. Gray yet. With Dottie as a shadow (or is she Dottie ' s? — they are both so slim they hardly cast one anyway), she cannot help but be successful on the stage if she keeps it up. We hope that she will deign to grace the stage in Davis Hall sometimes so that future classes may enjoy her acting as we have. SUSAN BACON RIPLEY " Sue " A.ndover, Massachusetts Five years Honor Roll ' 24, ' 25, ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Arm Band ' 24 Aeolian Society ' 28, President ' 28 Bar ' 26 Secretary of Student Government ' 28 Class President ' 24 Class Treasurer ' 25 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Les Beaux Arts ' 27 Club Hockey Team ' 28 Class Volley Ball Team ' 26 Numerals ' 27 Second Class Hockey Team ' 26 Fidelio ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Tea Dance Committee ' 27 Susan-violin-violin-Susan. We can ' t imagine them separated and we certainly wouldn ' t want them to be. Who can forget the solos at the Senior Picnic? Sue is our only " five-yearer " but this is her first year as a boarder. We don ' t see how we managed without her before. It must be very tempting to be able to see your house from your windows, and she often yields and goes home for a meal. So far she has come back every time. 21 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 KATHERINE ROSS " Kay " Middlebury, Vermont Radcliffe Two years Arm Band ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Fidelio ' 27 Philomatheia ' 27, ' 28 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Athletic Council ' 28 Honor Roll ' 28 Second Basketball Team ' 27, ' 28 Head of Hiking Class Volley Ball Team ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 28 Class Numerals " A " Society ' 28 First Vice-President Student Government ' 28 Merit Committee ' 28 Giggle, giggle, squeak, squeak, hee, haw! Enter Kay. Apparently nothing ever bothers this merry child except a pair of scales. She could find her way home from any spot within a radius of ten miles, one of the advantages of being Head of Hiking. We hope she goes to Radcliffe now after breaking Miss Mason ' s heart by dropping survey of science. Kay really isn ' t at all fearsome, but when she plays basket ball and charges for you with that terrible glasses- guard we always want to drop the ball and run. CONSTANCE WYER RUNDLETT " Connie " Portla nd, Maine Two years Class Secretary ' 27 Spanish Play ' 27 Philomatheia ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Second Basketball Team ' 28 Advisory Board ' 28 President A. C. A. ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Senior Play ' 28 Hiking Leader ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 27 Last year none of us knew Connie very well because the little time that she was in Draper Hall was spent in telling Kay, Helen, and Jane to hurry up. However, this year she appears to be quite an intelligent person inasmuch as she was able to reply correctly to her roommate ' s query as to who wrote Lindbergh ' s " We. " Whether or not Connie will take up social service work is still a matter of doubt; but we can be fairly sure that the " being " who keeps the mailmen all the way from California busy will occupy a good deal of her time. 22 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 ELIZABETH WILLIAMS RYAN " Betty " — " La Petite " Andover, Massachusetts Simmons College Fidelio ' 27, ' 28 French Play ' 28 Secretary-Treasurer of Odeon ' 27 Abbot Birthday Committee Two years Spanish Play ' 27 Odeon ' 27, ' 28 ' 27 Betty is quite a travelled young lady after a summer spent in Europe, but if other people did not tell us we would never know it. She is one of those miracles who don ' t mention it unless asked to and is just the same as she was last year. She does try so hard to look solemn behind those big glasses but she hasn ' t fooled us. Although most of the boarders never see her except in Class that is enough to make us know what a lot Draper Hall has missed in not having her there. ELIZABETH SCHUH " Betty " Southbridge, Massachusetts Wheaton Two years Tennis Team ' 27 Courant Board ' 27, ' 28 Honor Roll ' 27 Secretary-Treas. of Griffins ' 28 Arm Band ' 27 Who is that coming into the dining room late? Mary and (Betty or shall we say Lizzie?) Betty carries five subjects and gets on the Honor Roll besides work- ing on the Courant, playing tennis, taking part in our " Winter " Carnival and extracting quarters from the reluctant Griffins. Anyone might be proud of such a record. Besides all this arduous work she has to keep her roommate in order and that ' s a job in itself. 23 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 EMILY SLOPER " Emmy " New Britain, Connecticut Two years Aeolian Society ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Class Vice-President ' 27 Spanish Play ' 27 Fidelio ' 27 Choir ' 28 Class Book Board ' 28 Senior Play ' 28 Numerals ' 28 " Hi-Emmy! Have another doughnut! " Who can forget that martial call or Emmy herself? Even the long lanky substance recently blessed with that name couldn ' t hold all the doughnuts that came flying through the air — you ' ll have to add another inch or two for future use, that ' s all there is to it. That inch would put you so much further from the wandering mice that often come into our sight. Of course we don ' t believe the story of the bed springs breaking because of a sudden leap — or that the villagers tore out into the night because of the siren shrieks, but it ' s always best to be prepared. MARIAN HEATHMAN SMITH " ' Bozie " Utica, New York Columbia Medical School Second Basketball Team ' 26 Club Hockey Team, ' 28 Track Team ' 27, ' 28 Philomatheia ' 27, ' 28 Head of Track ' 27 Numerals ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 Three years Hockey Team, ' 27, ' 28 Griffin Captain ' 28 Entertainment Com. ' 26 Pres. Philomatheia " A. " Society Fidelio Senior Mid Play 28 28 27 27 Athletic Council ' 27, ' 28 Bozie claims the distinction of being the first Cap- tain of the Griffins and she has succeeded in stirring up as much admiration among the Gargoyles as among the Griffins. She is an all-round athlete; she swings a wicked hockey stick all fall, does fancy skating at the Winter Carnival and breaks track records all spring. Aside from her athletic pursuits she is an admirable President of Philomatheia. Who knows but what at our fiftieth reunion we may have a famous scientist in our midst. 24 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 LAURA PATTERSON SNELL " Patty " Ayer, Massachusetts Connecticut College Two years Honor Roll ' 27 Sec.-Treas. Q. E. D. ' 28 Q. E. D. ' 27, ' 28 Head of Archery ' 28 Numerals ' 27 " A " Society ' 28 Second Hockey Team ' 28 Athletic Council ' 28 Posture Honor Roll ' 28 Patty is another of our number who endorses " Bobby pins. " When she came to school last year from Montana she had no flowing tresses — but how those Bobby-pins have changed her looks! Patty is very seldom without a book in her hand. Pro- bably by the end of the year we will see her putting up the mail while reading. Putting up the mail, by the way, is one of the most dangerous jobs in School but Patty seems to have survived it. Vassar Class Treasurer ' 26 Class Vice-President ' 27 Q. E. D.

' 27 Tennis Team ' 27, ' 28 Croquet Team ' 26 Arm Band ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 27 Class Book Board ' 28 Captain of Tennis ' 28 Northfield Delegate ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 28 Our great big wonderful Jean — what would we do without you? You keep the Seniors on the straight and narrow — you show us how that game of tennis is played — you solve world problems for us in debates in no uncertain manner — you even show us what the well dressed skater is wearing this winter. There ' s no question about it, we take off our hats to you! 25 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 J i THEODORA TALCOTT " Theo " Farmington, Connecticut Vassar Two years Courant Board ' 27, ' 28 Senior Mid Play ' 27 French Play ' 28 Second Hockey Team, 28 Honor Roll ' 27 Northfield Delegate ' 27 " Theo, do hurry up! You ' ll surely be late! " But no, Theo gets there even if she didn ' t get up till the breakfast bell. Even those bangs of hers don ' t hold her long before the mirror. In corridor stunts last fall we all remember her as the " male specimen of humanity. " So superior but so charming. You know that is the way Alex is. What will it be like next year when Madame doesn ' t have Theo to parler francais at her table six weeks at a time. She surely is the life of that table. And she has had practice teaching French I, too. Probably Theo is trying to grow thin — we all do — but only once has she looked like a ghost — not of herself but of Hamlet ' s father.

She certainly deserves to be congratulated on the way she has succeeded with the Gargoyles and the Griffins. Aside from her ability to wield a hockey stick ferociously she is a great actress (actor, we mean) — witness her debut as a hard boiled crook last year. And moreover, we ' ve all come over to her side of the Nicaraguan question due to her convincing arguments on the subject. 28 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 Calenbar for 1927 = 1928 September 21 Opening Day.

" The Comedy of Errors " Characters: Fairly young Preps who show a marked tendency towards bash- fulness. The action of this play took place so many years ago that we are fortunate to have a sole survivor in Susan Ripley. The movement at this stage was somewhat slow and full of difficulties which now must not be treated as tragedy but pure comedy. II. " Much Ado About Nothing " Characters: Somewhat cocky Juniors most efficient in telling others what to do. The action of this play was full of hurry and business but strange to say nothing in the end was seen but wiser children trained by many a patient upper classman. The importance of the moment loomed great in the inexperi- enced eye. III. " Measure for Measure " Characters: Somewhat subdued Junior Middlers who are " feeling their oats on the sly. " Now the action picked up a little and steadily yet slowly gained momentum. This act left you with the premonition that great things are to come and this is but an apprenticeship for the actors. IV. " As You Like It " Characters: Sweet and helpful Senior-Middlers always there when you want them and when you don ' t, too. The spirit in this act was superb — always bobbing up in crises and holding out valiantly to the grand finale. This act walked away with some honors but they must not be mentioned in the light of that which is to come. V. " All ' s Well That Ends Well " Characters: Preoccupied Seniors either always beginning something new or finish- ing something old or in the middle of something awfully important (this tends to irritate those critical members of the audience.) The action in this started quite well and even managed to win some favorable comments but as the play continued it took a strange turn almost tempest-like. As the inevitable end drew near a strong bond of loyalty among the actors was the final impression gained by all the audience. Every last ounce of pep and go was put into this last scene of the fifth act to make the grand climax of the play. 31 T h Abbot C i r c I 1 9 2 X Class Will We, the Class of 1928, of Abbot Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, being of sound mind, despite evidence to the contrary, do hereby give, devise, and bequeath our worldly possessions as follows: First, To the Class of 1929 — 1. The squeaky chair in the Senior Parlor: 2. The ability to translate Miss Chickering ' s assignments: 3- All our surplus cash to spend on Centennial plates: 4. The privilege of falling out of Chapel every morning: 5- The brain-power to play " I doubt it: " 6. Tripods for the new Hymn Books. Second, To Individuals — 1. Peg Graham ' s dignity to Peg Esty: 2. Kay Adams ' s musical reputation to her sister: 3- Sis Bartlett ' s scowl to Mary Eaton: 4. All our men ' s calling cards to Gwen and Marge: 5. A dancing partner to Mac: 6. Fran Gould ' s medicines to Eleanor Thompson: 7. All our clever games to Miss Baker: 8. A little awe and admiration for the mighty to Helen Thornburg: 9. J. Paret ' s retiring nature to Dorothy Dunn: 10. All our mock sherry and fermented cider to Miss Moses: 11. Our old rubbers to Miss Hopkins to be vulcanized and made into a rug for the Library floor. Third, To the School — 1 . A carload of Vacuum cleaners : 2. All our points — good, bad, and athletic: 3. Our trite remarks, to be used exclusively by the next Class Book Board. 33 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Clagg Jkopfjecp ' Twas a perfect graduation day with the cloudless sky of June, And I thought of all the class apart and where we ' d be so soon, When suddenly there opened wide the senior parlor door, And the girls of twenty years from now came trooping ' cross the floor. And first of all Kay Adams came and she told me, with a laugh, That she was selling fancy soaps at a dollar and a half. Fran Anderson, or Francie, she still so liked her name, Was now a wealthy architect of no uncertain fame. Our Sis, gymnastic teacher, had turned out at least a score Of strong Olympic champions, with promises of more. And Bunny said she was preparing books for publication, And that Clarissa Harlowe was her very best creation. Kay Bornemann lived in Europe and had quite forgot her scales Since she had gone to England and had met the Prince of Wales. Then Cushie came serenely with a smile upon her face, As our Alumnae treasurer she found her destined place Then Dotty Dow, an actress, married to her leading man, And Lois teaching Virgil — Oh, you ought to hear her scan. Jean Frederick was a writer of the very " nth degree " , And Gee-Gee had a husband just as rich as he could be. And Fran, a charming matron now, still had the Stu-G. habit, While all her seven daughters reeled off Shakespeare up at Abbot. Peg Graham still wrote debates on Scott and Barrie for the papers, And Dizzie on the stage was being paid for cutting capers. Louise had become a minister and worked one day a week. And Betty Jack was coaching the part of Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Dot Jennings now was married to a Duke (who liked the girls) And when he first saw Dotty he just couldn ' t resist those curls. Bea Lane and Helen Leavitt had a Bachelor ' s Apartment, And both were teaching college in the Musical Department. Miss Leech came next, so proud to be her father ' s secretary And Nivi had married an Irishman, just to be a bit contrary. And then our Pie, the same old Pie, adorable and funny, Right out for anything at all, but ' specially out for money. And next as social hostess was our charming Marion Quin And Susan doing wonders with a haunted violin. 34 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Kay Ross was there with bells on; not a thing could her dishearten, For she had to be optimistic as a teacher of Kindergarten. Our Connie was a reformer now in many a Portland street And Betty Ryan taught French IV as " Mademoiselle Petite. " Still Betty Schuh wrote essays that were never known to fail. And Emmy had a Winter Resort at good old Intervale. And Patty was a famous preacher out in her Montana, And made a dollar at every word and called it all just " manna. " Jean Swihart had kept up her work and also all her care, The first of women presidents, she occupied the chair. Oh, Theo, what an awful thing such dire distraction does, Forever absent-minded, she ' d forgotten what she was. Babs Vail was quite a lady in the King of England ' s palace. Bob Wentworth had a special feature dance with Mary Alice. Bet Whitney kept her husband ' s house in quite a perfect state. And Kay Willauer wrote many a Senatorial debate. And I? Well, I was there, and still endeavoring to write, With Shakespeare, Burns, or Chaucer as an ever present light, And now to tell a secret that is just between us two, I never saw a bit of this — it really isn ' t true. But wouldn ' t it be funny if the future course of Fate Should prove a little bit of this to dear old " Twenty-Eight? " Josephine G.

Instantly a joyous crowd of Abbot Seniors burst forth, for they had reached their destination, Intervale. A sleigh and two pairs of impatient horses awaited them around the corner, and jumping in they were soon off over the ice and snow. And what fun proved to be in store for them! For not only was there skiing, sliding, skating, snowshoveling, and tobogganing, but also Bacon Bats, mountain climbing, trailing, and numerous other exciting events. No wonder they were a happy crew! At Intervale, far away from the rest of the world, they stayed three whole days with Miss Bailey as a loving companion. In the early morning they watched the mountain peaks turn crimson with the rising sun. In the evening they wandered over the paths of snow guided by the moon. They were happy there, but why not — for isn ' t Intervale just the best place in the world ? 42 ; ytervm£ The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Chorus: Chorus: interfcmle ongg (Tune — " I ' m coming Virginia " } We ' re coming back Abbot, we ' re coming to stay, Don ' t hold it against us for running away; We ' re glad to be back here although we ' ve had fun. With all those winter sports of different sorts That kept us on the run. We ' re coming back, Abbot, we don ' t want to roam Again from your shelter, our Andover home. (Tune — " Bonny Dundee " } To the Seniors of Abbot, dear, B. B. did speak Saying: Intervale that is the place you should seek. And if you ' ll pass all your exams with an " A " Why maybe I ' ll take you there some winter ' s day. So we all worked so hard that we passed with an " A " At least so we hoped on that glorious day. And we boarded the train and we left you behind And we told you we ' d send you a post-card in time. Then we used all our Math to count steaks that we ate, And we figured is must be at least ninety-eight. And we toasted marshmallows far into the night, And no Mr. Scannell could turn out the light. So we ' re telling you now that you ' d better be good, If you want to go up to the mountains and wood. And we ' ll everyone say it ' s some place to go, And then we ' re not telling you all that we know. (Tune — Diane ' ' ) It was heaven where we went to play; Intervale we love you. You ' re a spot which is dear through the years Rolling on, Intervale. We were glad we could go there to learn What the others have known, And to build up our friensdhips so firm Once again, Intervale. 43 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Sntertmle ongg (Tune — " Billy Boy " ) Did you have a lot of fun? Asked the Preps and Junior Class, Did you have a lot of fun O, you Seniors? Yes, we had a lot of fun Look how fat we have become But you ' re young things and could not leave your teachers. Did you go to see a show? Asked the little Junior-mids. Did you go to see a show O, you Seniors. Yes, we went to see a show It was Diz-Ike and the snow But you ' re young things and could not leave your teachers. Did you have a chance to skate? Asked the eager Senior-mids. Did you have a chance to skate, O, you Seniors? Yes we had a chance to skate, In the moonlight very late, But you ' re young things and could not leave your teachers. Did you all enjoy the view, Asked the Faculty so dear Did you all enjoy the view Honored Seniors? Yes, we all enjoyed the view, For we had no work to do, We are grown ups and we can leave our teachers. 44 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Hfaterbale ongs (Tune — " A Capital Ship for an Ocean Trip " } O, the place to go for a jaunt in the snow is up at Intervale For a speedy ride on a toboggan slide or a hike up a Mountain Trail. But we say that for a Bacon Bat where doughnuts fly in the air so high-i-i It can ' t be beat for a Senior treat you ' ll get there bye and bye. O over the icy snow a trailing we did go We slide down the hill with many a spill and into the brook below-o-o O here ' s to the mountains high that tower to the sky A climb to the peak a view to seek A rollicking crowd we go. (Tnne — " A Li tie Bit of Heaven " } Sure a little bit of heaven fell from out the sky one day And it nestled in New Hampshire, not so many miles away; And when the angels found it, sure it looked so sweet and fair, They said, " Suppose we keep it for it is so peaceful there. " So they sprinkled it with sunshine just to make the pine trees grow, They ' re the finest ones that can be found, no matter where you go. And they placed the mountains ' round it, just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished, sure they called it Intervale. 45 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 QTree i£ ong Dear ruddy oak, so young and strong, Kindred we are to thee; We in our lives like thee aspire Noble and great to be. Lend us thy strength, O stalwart oak, Lend us thy valiant power; Give us a vision of thee to keep Fair as thou art this hour. Symbol of strength that Abbot leaves Deep in our hearts to dwell, Great is the courage thou dost give Now as we say farewell. Jean Frederick, ' 28 46 The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 parting ffivmn Father, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me; The changes that are sure to come : I do not fear to see; : But I ask Thee, for a present mind Intent on pleasing Thee. I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles, : And to wipe the weeping eyes : And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am, In whatsoe ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts, : To keep and cultivate; : And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life : While keeping at Thy side; : Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified. 47 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 AIN ' T IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELIff -rUw,B ;, v Fc( THt DAT - - AMP M 155 MpSf 5 cflLlS ONTHF GIRL R m D0tt N THEN SHF C ULS 0N.

H. P., Columbia Jester). Generally speaking men may be divided into three classes, husbands, bachelors and widowers. An eligible bachelor is a mass of obstinacy entirely surrounded by suspicion; husbands are of three classes : prizes, surprizes and consolation prizes. Making a husband out of any man is one of the highest plastic arts known to civilization. It requires science, the skill of sculpturing, common sense, faith, hope and charity. Perhaps travel makes one cynical; at any rate, I write this having come to the conclusion that man is too inconsistent to be pleased in any way. Lest anyone should take exception to this, I should like to present some of the dilemmas in which woman finds herself. If you flatter a man you frighten him to death, and if you don ' t you bore him; and if you permit him to make love to you he gets tired of you in the end and if you don ' t he gets tired of you in the beginning. If you believe him in everything you soon cease to interest him, and if you argue with him in everything you soon cease to charm him; if you believe all he tells you he thinks you are a fool, and if you don ' t he thinks you are a cynic. If you wear gay clothes, rouge and a startling hat he hesi- tates to take you out, and if you wear a little brown cloche and a tailor-made suit he takes you out and stares all evening at a woman in gay colours, rouge and a startling hat. If you join him in his gaieties and approve him in his smoking he says you have no interest in his welfare, and if you don ' t he vows you are making his life unbearab le. If you are a clinging vine type, he doubts whether you have a heart at all, if you are silly he begs for a bright mate, and if you are brilliant and intellectual he longs for a playmate. If you are popular with other men he is jealous, and if you are not he hesitates to marry a wall flower. Such inconsistency cannot be pleased! Miss Mason: " What is the word from Ann?

Wednesday, November 9th, was a cold, gray day but the orange of the Griffins and the green of the Gargoyles made the scene a cheerful one. Jean Swihart won the tennis singles for the Gargoyles after an unusually close and inter- esting match. After the tennis the Griffins came forward to win croquet and clock golf while the Gargoyles finished up the morning with a victory in archery. Lunch was a welcome thought and after an hour ' s rest we fared forth again to the Basketball field. The Gargoyle second team brought home a victory over the Griffin seconds and the Griffin first team won from the Gargoyle firsts. Both games were marked by fine spirit and good playing. The last event of the day, hockey, proved a victory for both Griffin teams but they had to work for it. The day was a complete success and seems to augur well for the future Gargoyle and Griffin teams. 73 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 Honor " S " 1927 MIRIAM HOUDLETTE PAULINE HUMESTON LUCY SANBORN 74 IB ORGANIZATIONS The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 L.

The discussion was very interesting and the scenes from the comedy extremely amusing. On Saturday afternoon, April 14th, the Aeolian Society gave us a review of the life and works of Schubert. The selections for voice, piano and organ were pleasing and expertly rendered. The last number was the Toy Symphony by the whole orches- tra which called forth encore after encore. Thursday evening, May 24th, gave us a chance to compare Alfred Emmanuel Smith and Herbert Clarke Hoover in their qualifications for the Presidency as pre- sented by four members of Q. E. D. Their lives and positions on National and Inter- national questions were taken up in detail and we felt much better prepared for the coming election. A. D. S. has been interested this year in modern, one-act plays. Their work was shown by The Ghost Story and Suppressed Desires given in January. Since then a play has been read at each meeting. Les Beaux Arts has been busy educating our artistic tastes this winter. They have displayed pictures from their collection on the bulletin board by the package room and have changed it every week. The pictures chosen show discrimination and artistic taste. Philomatheia gave us a very interesting and instructive talk on Thursday, May 31st, on the development of transportation. We never knew before from what small beginnings our mighty railroad trains came. 80 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 O. Warden M.Smith E. Hollis E. Leech E. Ryan, Treasurer E.

Twelfth Night is enchanting and one of the finest cures of the ages for a melancholy heart, at least so thinks the Class of ' 28. Shipwrecked Viola, who as a page in Duke Orsino ' s court delivered love messages of the Duke to Olivia, the charming niece of Sir Toby Belch, was such an unusual lad that Olivia, instead of yielding to the Duke ' s entreaties, fell in love with the mes- senger. Her uncle, Sir Toby, was more content with his friend, Sir Andrew, his clown, Feste, and servant Maria, than he was interested in his niece ' s marriage, so he found great delight in making a laughing stock of the staid Malvolio. Viola was deeply in trouble, since Olivia claimed her as husband; Sir Toby and Sir Andrew wanted vengeance for their defeat; and the Duke condemned her for being false; wandering Sebastian appeared on the spur of the moment to set matters right while Feste left a jolly song jingling in our ears. Dorothea Dow, as Viola and Cesario, showed her skill by keeping " love-sweet " Viola ever steady at her task, and she made Shakespeare ' s lines ring with their true poetry and expression. She made Cesario a mighty charming lad. Maria, played by Katherine Adams, was clever and alert. We felt her keen sense of fun and loved her craftiness in tricking Malvolio and in managing matters the way she wanted them. Stately Olivia too, played by Marian Smith, deserves praise for her dignified and noble impersonation of that famous lover. We never knew there were so many fine men in Abbot. Sir Toby Belch! We certainly do congratulate Mary Piper on making Sir Toby live in such a natural and likeable manner. Very fine work, Mary! Sir Andrew Aguecheeck, Sir Toby ' s bosom companion, played by Elizabeth Jackson, won our hearts with his effeminate actions and his clever capers. He added a nice jolly touch to the play. Malvolio we loved haughty and smiling. His dramatic reading of the letter, his cross-garters, yellow stockings and " Smile, ho, ho " were lovely. You make a fine Malvolio, Gee-Gee. Eleanor Leech as Duke Orsino dramatically paved the way for a thrilling drama. Sebastian was so much like his sister that it kept us busy remembering which person was Sebastian and which Viola. With his fine work he helped to solve an ever increasing mystery. Nicely done Connie! Antonio, played by Katherine Borne- mann relieved tense moments by always appearing to explain matters. Jean Freder- ick, as Fabian, in a most natural way made us feel his keen desire to trick Malvolio. The Lords, Ladies, Priest, Sea Captain, officers and gentlemen in waiting ' all added a brilliant natural touch which made every part more interesting. And Barbara Wentworth as Feste created a happy-go-lucky feeling which was most sooth- ing for an interested audience. We all feel that Mrs. Gray, after many weeks of intense, unfailing work, has added another very brilliant touch to her long list of successful productions. 87 The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 " Square $egsf The evening of the Senior-Mid Plays was opened by a delightful piece by Lois Hardy and Polly Francis. Lois typified a charming modern girl with real twentieth century manners while Polly hypnotized us with her beautiful gown and the quaint customs of fifteen century Venice. The climax came when each discovered that her own times were the best. The play was artistically portrayed and very enjoyable. Cast A Modern Girl A 15th Century Venetian Lois Hardy Polly Francis Ufa 0lh Habp g fjoto fter Jfflebate Any play by Barrie would receive a favorable reception but this one was so well done that we considered it quite a masterpiece. Every girl played her part with the ease and finish of a professional. The three old ladies were essentially alike and yet different and they added a clever touch of humor. We loved the way Mrs. Dowey took her chance for happiness and were equally fond of the rough, crude soldier who became as a son to her. The actors are to be congratulated!

The first, Suppressed Desires, showed the trials of a young married man whose wife was obsessed by Psycho-analysis. Marion Quin, as Henrietta, the wife, was excellent. Katherine Adams took the part of Mabel, Henrietta ' s sister, who also becomes interested in Psycho-analysis, to perfection. Margaret Graham as the poor harassed husband, Stephen Brewster, was extremely good also. Stephen Brewster finally convinces his wife that Psycho-analysis isn ' t as great as she thought. The Cast: Henrietta Brewster Stephen Brewster Mabel Marion Quin Margaret Graham Katherine Adams The second offering, The Ghost Story, was very different but quite as well done. It concerned the troubles of a shy young man — Mary Alice Mcintosh — in screwing up his courage to propose to Anna — Dorothea Dow. He finally did it with the help of a crowd of friends, but what agonies he endured before the fatal words were spoken! The Cast Anna George Lennie Grace Mary .

They presented a variety of subjects and settings. Each one showed hard work and real achievement. Sing a Neiv Song by Katherine Taber Fox was an incident in the early history of Christianity in a Roman province. Fishermen s Wives by Priscilla Whittemore gave us a bit of tragic realism of modern Norway. The Home Tie by Virginia Gay cheered us with its love story of a boy and girl in a Maine seaport town. Jean Frederick ' s When We Were Very Young had special interest for us for it showed Abbot in 1842.
