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. BARBARA VAIL " Bobs " Michigan City, Indiana Wellesley Two years Aeolian Society ' 27, ' 28 Advisory Board ' 28 Honor Roll ' 28 Fidelio ' 27 Class Volley Ball Team ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 28 Club Basketball Team ' 28 Bab ' s nose is so cute we can ' t keep commenting on it a dozen times a day. But she doesn ' t mind and we could stand it too if we had one. Babs performs very creditablv in our famous violin quartet but don ' t try to make a date with her for Tuesday afternoon. She has a chronic one with Miss Nichols. Turn to the ad section and notice Hartigan ' s full page contribution. Babs is partly responsible for it because of the amount of trade she gives them. We thank you, Babs. 26

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. ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27, ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Bible Group Leader ' 27 Numerals ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 27 Athletic Council ' 28 Honor Roll ' 28 Hiking Leader ' 28 JEAN REID SWIHART " Jean " Ridgewood, New Jersey Three years President Senior Class ' 28 Arm Band ' 26 President 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 C i r c I 19 2 8 BARBARA WENTWORTH " Bobbie, Barb " Winchester, Massachusetts Two years Class hockey Team, ' 27 Gargoyle Hockey Team ' 28 Hockey Team ' 28 Entertainment Committee ' 27, ' 28 Choir ' 27, ' 28 Assistant Club Song Leader ' 28 Nominating Committee ' 27 Senior Play ' 28 Advisory Board ' 27 Chairman Prom. Committee ' 28 What would Bobbie do, if she couldn ' t dance morn- ing, noon, and night? She is another of the " insepa- rables " : if you see her, Pipe is sure to be looming in the background with Jarman, Jeannette and Milly not far behind. Although Bobbie looks like a rather frail young lady she can swing a wicked hockey stick. She ' s talented for she plays jazz to perfection and acts in the Senior Play. ELIZABETH WURTS WHITNEY " Betty " White Plains, New York Three years Senior Mid Play ' 26 Fidelio ' 26 Arm Band ' 26, ' 27 No.rthfield Delegate ' 26, ' 27 Tea Dance Committee ' 27 Odeon ' 27, ' 28 President of Odeon ' 28 Bible Group Leader ' 27 Class Secretary ' 27 Vice-Fresident A. C. A. ' 28 Advisory Board ' 28 Student Council ' 28 Chairman Abbot Birthday Committee ' 28 Senior Play ' 28 Here comes our book agent with all the latest. Nay, ' tis but young Betty after a carefree morning spent in McKeen. Honestly, how many muscles do you exercise, each day carrying all those books? Did one hear squeals of laughter of the juvenile sort from aroung the corner? It ' s Betty frolicking with someone, probably Sis. But Bettv certainly keeps Odeon up to the mark— witness the Courant articles delicately but noticeably inscribed " written for Odeon. " 27
