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 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 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
