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 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 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
