C. A. ' 28; Cen- tennial Central Committee ' 29; Advisory Board ' 28; President of Class ' 25. Jo-Jo, our beloved leader! When we, the one hundredth class, chose her for our President we showed how much we think of her. She is certainly capable of her position. Jo-Jo sets a good example for us to follow: she has scaled the Honor Roll and reached the top. She always has the same cheery smile and friendly word for everyone. She can act to perfection, being an honorable member of A. D. S. She is also business manager of the Courant. Quite a combination! XATHERINE HOLT BLUNT Kay Andover, Mass. Massachusetts General Hospital Four Years Armband ' 26; Fidelio ' 26; Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27, ' 2S, ' 29; Treasurer of ( " lass 1930, ' 27; Senior-Mid Play; Secretary of SKNIOIIS 13 Athletic Association ' 29; Philoma- theia ' 28, ' 29; Draper Dramatics ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Honor Roll ' 29. We all expect to see Kay a few years from now in a white cap and dress, nursing the infants at Abbot who eat too much. You know, that ' s a habit of theirs, es- pecially when they go to Inter- vale. Kay took Miss Carpenter ' s advice about posture and is now setting us an example. How she ever manages to stand up straight enough to stay on the Posture Honor Roll for four years is beyond us — but then, it ' s natural for Kay to manage things well. ELIZABETH MONTAGUE BOWSER Bessie Lawrence, Mass. Connecticut College Three Years Entertainment Committee ' 27; Armband ' 27; Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Class Treasurer ' 29; Senior Mid Play ' 28; Clock Golf Team ' 28; Second Tennis Team ' 28; Courant Board ' 28, ' 29; Tennis Team ' 29. Bessie runs our class finances — that job of trying to get us to pay our debts when we are " broke " . She does it, too, which is proof of her ability. Every issue of the Courant is better because it con- tains some of Bessie ' s witty poems or articles. Athletically, tennis and clock golf are her strong points, but don ' t be mistaken, these aren ' t all she can do. She is a willing troubadour and enter- tains us often. One thing more, " Bessie, why do you blush so? " 14 THE ABBOT CIRCLE CATHERINE BOWDEN " Kay ' " Marblehead, Mass. Three Years Armband ' 27; Volleyball Team ' 27, ' 28; Head of Volleyball ' 28; Fidelio ' 27; Athletic Council ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Second Varsity Hockey Team ' 29; Posture Honor Roll ' 28; Class Treasurer ' 28; Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; Secretary- Treasurer Philomatheia ' 28 ; North- field Delegate ' 28; Hiking Leader ' 29; Honor Roll ' 29; Vice-President Student Government ' 29. Kay is the life of the party no matter where she may be. She is one of our best dancers, and may always be counted on for a never- ending stream of " bright remarks ' ' . By the way, Kay, where do you get that slang? Food is one of the chief interests in Kay ' s life, and she does get away with a sur- prisingly large amount of it. Remember the box-lunch, or lunches, she had on the train going to Intervale? Her cheery good nature and sunny spirit have carried us through many a dark day. ALICE JULIET BUTLER " Alish " New Haven, Conn. Vassar Three Years Class President ' 27; C our ant Board ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; President of A. A. A. ' 29; Student Council ' 29; Athletic Council ' 28, ' 29; Head of Track ' 28; Track Team ' 27, ' 28; Second Hockey Team ' 28; Hockey Team ' 29; Numerals ' 28; " A " SENIORS 1.5 Society ' 28, ' 29; Chevrons ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Advisory Board ' 28; Northfield Delegate ' 28; Honor Roll ' 29. First and foremost, " Alish " runs our athletics. She is certainly capable of this task, as she shines in every sport going; and if anyone knows the meaning of the word " sportsmanship " , that person is " Alish " . But the name Alice Butler is honored in other ways, for hasn ' t it a firm position on the Honor Roll? Yes, " Alish " knows a lot about books too. " May " and " Alish " are a great pair of roommates. We often wonder what they ' d be up to if " Alish " weren ' t on " Stu. G. " As it is, there is always a lively time to be had when they are both around. We feel that " Alish " is an indis- pensable member of ' 29. CHARLOTTE SERENA BUTLER Meriden, Conn. Smith Two Years President of class ' 28; Vice- President A. C. A. ' 29; Treasurer A. A. A. ' 29; Advisory Board ' 29; Athletic Council ' 29; Abbot Birth- day Committee ' 29; Hockey Team ' 29; Track Team ' 28; Posture Committee ' 29; Student Council ' 29; Honor Roll ' 28, ' 29; Odeon ' 28, ' 29; Numerals ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28. Charl was famous last year for her " wee, small voice, " but even so she made a very successful president of our senior-mid class. Her voice must have gained strength with age, for she played " Mouth " in the senior play, which was a " rowdy, rackety " part. Charl is also small in stature, yet she made the hockey team over many huskier candidates. When it comes to her brains, however, small is just the wrong word, for Charl is one of these brilliant girls! She passed all her college boards last year and is merely taking this year ' s work for a firmer foundation. 16 THE ABBOT CIRCLE GERTRUDE MAE CAMPION Andover, Mass. Four Years Fidelio ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Aeolian ' 28, ' 29; Secretary and Treasurer of Aeolian ' 29. Gertie is what one might call a frail flower. She seems so delicate that one good puff of wind might blow her completely away, but that doesn ' t mean she can ' t do things. Just hearing her play the piano will more than prove that. She has been in Fidelio for three years and in the Aeolian Society for two and, as you may see above, she is now Secretary-Treasurer of Aeolian. Gertie is -another day- scholar that we boarders have become really acquainted with this year, partly through the Senior Parlor, and partly through Intervale — and we surely are grateful to both. FRANCES CONDIT COBB " Cobb " Boonton, N. J. Pratt Institute Five Years Fidelio ' 23, ' 24; Northfield ' 25, ' 28; Entertainment Committee ' 28; Croquet Team ' 29; Senior Play ' 29. Cobb has been here five years altogether. She left one year and went to another school — only to discover, as all true Abbot girls do, that Abbot is the best school after all — and " the cat came back " . We ' re glad she did. Imagine our class without Cobb ' s SENIORS 17 bright remarks and contagious laugh to keep us going. Our most cherished memory of Cobb, and we have many, is of her swirling- round and round down the hill in a two by four pan up at Intervale — with those two little tassels on her cap bobbing up and down. VIRGINIA ELIZABETH DRAKE " Ginny " Wichita, Kansas Wellesley Two Years C our ant Board ' 28; C our ant Editor-in-Chief ' 29; Senior Mid Play ' 28; Senior Mid Banquet Committee ' 28; Senior Banquet Committee ' 29; Athletic Council ' 29; Gargoyle Croquet Team ' 28; Gargoyle Archery Team ' 28; Head of Archery ' 29; Numerals ' 28; Gargoyle Volley Ball Team ' 28. Ginny is Millie ' s room-mate and she certainly makes an ideal one for the honored President of Student Government. We won- der if she ever has any craving to misbehave. Perhaps she gets away with things — who knows ? ? She can dance beautifully, and the whole school is mighty glad to have her when it comes to stunts of any sort. Of course, we all know her ability on the C our ant board. When it lacks material, she just sits down and writes it off by the yard. We sure take our hats off to you, Ginny! MARY EATON " M ay " Wakefield, Mass. Smith Three Years Q. E. D. ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Second Basketball Team ' 27, ' 28; Basket- ball Team ' 29; Track Team ' 27, ' 28; Head of Riding ' 28; Athletic Council ' 28, ' 29; Posture Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28; Numerals ' 27; Chevrons ' 29; " A " Society ' 28, ' 29; Choir ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; 18 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Captain of Griffins ' 29; Nor th- field Delegate ' 28; German Play ' 29. May has more in common with the musical star, Mary Eaton, than just a name, for she is little, and blonde, and pretty. What more could any girl want? But Mary is not satisfied with that alone; she must have her finger in everything. Her accomplishments are many, ranging from athletics to choir, and finally to Captain of the Griffins. May makes a fine leader and has inspired many a Griffin to trudge forth in a downpour of rain to finish her walks in order to gain points for her club. May has a mischievous twinkle in her eye and a spontaneous laugh which bursts forth at the wrong time. Just ask Mr. Howe. BARBARA ELLIOTT " Barb " " Bobbie " Willimantic, Conn. Connecticut College Two Years A necessary member of our class is Barbara with her ever- lasting good humor and wit. When we ' re blue we go to Barb, for we know her charming naivete will cheer us up. Her merry giggle can always be heard on the third floor wing; no — not always — ' cause often it ' s overwhelmed by more raucous mirth which some " bon mot " of hers has elicited. Barbara is one of our class artists, and we ' re sure she ' ll end up (thanks to Miss Kelsey) doing clever comic strips. SENIORS 19 OLIVE TAYLOR ELSEY Harrisburg, Pa. Two Years Class Book Board ' 29; Ad- visory Board ' 29; Centennial Ex- hibition Committee ' 29; Senior Play ' 29; Les Beaux Arts ' 29; Draper Dramatics ' 29. Olive is our class artist; for proof, just glance at the sketches in this book. Twinkling dimples and a flashing smile are two of her strong points. Ask the photo - graphers — they know. Will we ever forget the " close-ups " taken at Intervale? Of course not. and along side of that in our minds will be the memory of Olive and Gillie going at double-quick time through the intricate steps of the latest dance from Pennsylvania. MARGARET ESTY " Peg " Framingham, Mass. Two Years Advisory Board ' 28; Choir ' 28, ' 29; Fidelio ' 28, ' 29; President of Fidelio ' 28; Aeolian ' 28, ' 29; President of Aeolian ' 29; Draper Dramatics ' 28; Riding Team ' 28; Club Hockey Team ' 28. While laboring through a math test we are pretty sure to be enter- tained either by Peg ' s singing or by her Bach Fugues on the organ. We haven ' t decided yet which is most helpful. Peg is our most pro- minent musician and we certainly 20 THE ABBOT CIRCLE did enjoy her duets with Louise on the Senior Picnic. If you want to hear the heartiest laugh in school we advise you to page Peg Esty. She is, also, the champion page-turner for all musical events of importance. DOROTHY MAY FIELD " Dot " Phillips, Me. Wellesley Two Years Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; Volley Ball Team ' 28; Honor Roll ' 28, ' 29; Posture Committee ' 29. In the long run Dot has us beaten whether in a foot race or mental test. She just can ' t be out-done when it comes to grades, at least not in the college division of the class. Geniuses are, as a rule, melancholy, but not so with Dot. She may be a bit different, but only in that she is always cheerful. We defy anyone to contradict that statement. BARBARA SYLVESTER FOLK " Bab " Andover, Mass. Boston School of Occupational Therapy Five Years Fidelio ' 25, ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Class Treasurer ' 26; Senior Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; Club Hockey Team ' 29; Club Volley Ball ' 27 And who thinks of Polly, with- out Barbara! The picture just isn ' t complete. For five years Bab has helped to sustain ' 29 by her practical suggestions and sensible ideas. She is a faithful stand-by of SENIORS 21 Fidelio, and has shown her fine dramatic ability in both the Senior-Mid play and the Senior play. Bab is the one who likes violets so much. She certainly brings lovely ones — and often we wonder where they go ! MARY KENDRICK FRANCIS " Polly " Andover, Mass. Art School Five Years Fidelio ' 25, ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Armband ' 25; Track Team ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Student Council ' 28, ' 29; Third Vice-President of Student Council ' 29; A. D. S. ' 28, ' 29; A. D. S. Play ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Draper Dramatics ' 27; German Play ' 29; Senior Play ' 29 We call her Polly, but one really can ' t keep track of all her names. She is either Robert Trowbridge, Jakob Zorn, Gioconda, Harry, or best of all, Pierrot! For hours, we sit enthralled, listening to the passionate voice of our ideal man — then, plop! The lights are on and there stands Polly, our hero. Do you think we are disappointed? Not on your life! Boy or girl, on stage or off, we love her just the same. But acting is only one of Polly ' s numerous virtues. Doesn ' t she make those wild and reckless day-scholars toe the line? HESTER DOROTHE GERRISH " Dot " Andover, Mass. Holyoke Five Years Odeon ' 29; Entertainment Com- mittee ' 29. " Dot " may seem quiet in school, but is she that way 22 THE ABBOT CIRCLE outside?? She may be quiet, but she ' s none the less popular (so we hear), with the inmates of our brother school on the hill! Who would doubt the fact, knowing her engaging smile and twinkling blue eyes? " Dot " is quite the rider, as we discovered at Intervale where she so aptly led the skijorers. And that wasn ' t the only thing she did at Intervale — speaking of pipes bursting! Wilson College HARRIET BEATTY GILMORE ' ' Gillie " Chambersburg, Penn. Three Years L. B. A. ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Hiking Leader ' 29; Northfield Delegate ' 28; Track Team ' 28; Student Council ' 29; Numerals ' 28; President A. C. A. ' 29; Advisory Board ' 29; Class Secretary ' 28; Class Treas- urer ' 27; Club Hockey Team ' 29; Gillie has many accom- plishments. Besides keeping us straight as President of A. C. A., she handled the new girls with great skill, and as a staunch mem- ber of L. B. A. has helped decorate many banquets. And did you ever see such a crowded room as Gillie ' s when " the picture " arrived? Why, there wasn ' t elbow room! And some people wonder why Gentlemen Prefer Blondes ! LOIS MELANIE HARDY " Lo " Wellesley Farms, Mass. Wheelock Kindergarten School Five Years Armband ' 25; Vice-President of Class ' 26; Student Council ' 27; Numerals ' 27; Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Fidelio ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Second Hockey team ' 27; Varsity Hockey ' 28, ' 29; Philomathea ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Northfield Delegate ' 28; Draper Dramatics ' 28; Club Riding Team ' 28; " A " Society ' 28, ' 29; Track Team ' 28, SENIORS 23 ' 29; Choir ' 28, ' 29; Class Book Board ' 29; Class Secretary ' 29; Three Chevrons. Lo is one of the busiest girls in the school, and in spite of all her business, she tops the honor roll, smiles continually, and adores athletics. Any day you may see her riding horseback, or training rigorously to heighten her speed for hockey or track. Complaints and frowns are nonentities in Lois ' life, and in years to come we ' ll remember that she could be de- pended upon to get things done, and that her hair was curly and almost golden. MARY JEANETTE HUBBARD " Jean " Pontiac, Mich. University of Michigan Les Beaux Arts ' 28, ' 29; Vice- President and Secretary of L. B. A. ' 29. Jeanette is our " blushing prim- rose " (with all due respects to Jarman). " Jean, Jean, with her cheeks so red; we wonder if she takes them off before she goes to bed. " Jean is a talented member of L. B. A., and helps us out with artistic posters now and then. To a casual observer she may appear quiet, but not so! When she and Jarman get together, they ' re cer- tainly a witty pair! Three Years 24 THE ABBOT CIRCLE ELIZABETH GIGNOUX HULSE " Betty " " Hulse " Munroe, New York Vassar Four Years Armband ' 26; French Play ' 26; Bars ' 26; Baseball Team ' 26, ' 27; Abbot Birthday Committee ' 26, ' 28; Athletic Council, fall of ' 28; Posture Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28; " A " Society ' 27; Varsity Tennis Team ' 27; Numerals ' 27; Chev- rons ' 27; Northfield Delegate ' 28; Draper Dramatics ' 28; Q. E. D. ' 29; Head of tennis, fall of ' 28; Hiking Leader ' 28; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Club Tennis Team ' 28. " Hulse " , as we call her, has the most logical mind in the class, and her frankness is refreshing when we are wearied by too much suavity. We think that her determined jaw and broad shoulders, together with her logic, indicate that she would make a successful lawyer. Betty is a good sport, and plays an exceptionally strong game of tennis. And isn ' t West Point near Vassar? HELEN MERWIN HURLBURT Glastonbury, Conn. Three Years Fidelio ' 27; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; French Play ' 28; Tea Dance Committee ' 28; Entertainment Committee ' 28; Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; President Philomatheia ' 29; Senior-Mid Vice President ' 28. " Sugar ' n spice ' n everything nice, That ' s what little girls are made of! " SENIORS 2.5 Thus runs our train of thought when Helen is mentioned. Now Helen is a very capable and very entertaining little girl as well. We don ' t know what Philomatheia would have done without her. As Doll in " Prunella " , in spite of her " unf eelingness " she won our hearts. Speaking of hearts, won ' t we be proud and thrilled when she graduates and — and — guess we won ' t go into that after all. JOYCE JARMAN " Jcii-man " Scarsdale, New York Barnard Extension Course Three Years Basketball Team ' 27; Advisory Board ' 28; Posture Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28; Class Hockey Team ' 27; Varsity Hockey Team ' 28, ' 29; Second Hockey Team ' 27; Class Numerals ' 28; Griffin Hockey Team ' 28, ' 29. Jarman, carries out our idea of what the well-dressed girl should wear — a virtual echo of Vogue. But this isn ' t her main forte. Her dry English wit is unbeatable, and is particularly enhanced by the non-committal expression with which she utters her telling remarks. Hockey takes on new vigor when Joyce is play- ing steadily in the backfield, and we feel sure that she ' ll always be there to intercept that pass. F. GWENLLIAN JONES " Gwen " Cincinnati, Ohio Wellesley Three Years Fidelio ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Class Volley Ball Team ' 27; Entertain- ment Committee ' 27; Prom Com- mittee ' 27, ' 28; Track Team ' 28; 26 THE ABBOT CIRCLE " Q. E. D. " ' 28, ' 29; Vice-President of Class ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Hiking Leader ' 29; Q. E. D. President ' 29; Head of Clock Golf ' 29; Athletic Council ' 29; Editor-in-Chief of Class Book ' 29. Brown wavy hair, deep brown eyes, a sunny " disposish " — that is Gwen. She upholds the beauty standards of our Class, and maybe our brothers at P. A. haven ' t discovered it too. The long and the short of them appear once a week and Gwen tactfully keeps them both happy. As for her missing a tea dance — that ' s beyond our imagination. However Gwen still has a weakness " for the boy she left behind her " in Cincinnati. We wonder if a snappy new brown Dodge has anything to do with it. But even with all her social activities and many letters Gwen has time to run Q. E. D. and to edit this book, and, as you can see, she has been very successful. Gwen, above all, is loved by everybody for her graciousness, her kind-heartedness and her sweetness. ELEANOR JONES Lebanon, N. H. Three Years A. D. S. ' 28, ' 29; A. D. S. Play ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. We don ' t know Eleanor ' s plans for next year, but we are willing to recommend her as an actress to any theatrical producer. She has proven her dramatic talent here. Eleanor portrays many characters equally well. The Old Lady, an Irish maid, a gossiping neighbor, or a Pierrette. We could also vouch that she would make no show of temperament at rehearsals, but rather help to make things run more smoothly by her even dispo- sition. ROBERTA KENDALL " Bobbie " " Apple Dumpling " Chevy Chase, Md. Two Years Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. SENIORS 27 We were all very glad when Bobbie satisfied her suppressed desire by moving down from her lofty height to take care of Cobb. We understand they ' re an ideal pair. Of course, to most of us, " Apple-Dumpling " , as her de- voted roommate calls her, seems demure, but — " what ' s your idea in bringing that up? " Bobbie is quite an actress and as the little boy in Prunella, her favorite saying is, " Oh, you naughty, naughty birds! " However, we have grave doubts as to her using this little speech outside of Abbot Dramatics. KATHERINE MASON KENNEDY " X " Suffield, Conn. Sarah Lawrence College Four Years Student Council ' 29; Vice-Presi- dent of A. A. A. ' 29; " A " Society ' 28, ' 29; President " A " Society ' 29; Baseball Team ' 26, ' 27, ' 28; Second Basketball Team ' 28; Vars- ity Basketball ' 29; Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27, ' 28; Posture Com- mittee ' 28, ' 29; Merit Committee ' 29; Northfield Delegate ' 27; Arm- band ' 26. " K ' s " blonde hair makes her a shining light of our class. But don ' t get the idea that " K " is merely another " beautiful blonde. " Quite the contrary, for she certainly has shown how capable she can be as " Stu. G " . representative and as Vice-President of A. A. A. She is also our walking Paris fashion model. And as for basketball, well, she showed Bradford how to run up a good score. 28 THE ABBOT CIRCLE MABEL ESTELLE LEVERING " Stifle " Jenkintown, Penn. Three Years Armband ' 27; Numerals ' 28; Volley Ball Team ' 28; Second Riding Team ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. Some of us have been wonder- ing, these past few years, why Estelle seems to be so preoccupied at times. The answer, we are told, is " q " — and " q " does not stand for " question " . We wonder what Estelle will do next year without Jane. She gave us quite a " kick " in the Senior Plav. JANE ALLEN LINN " Jennie " Zanesville, Ohio Three Years Armband ' 27; Numerals ' 28; " A " Society ' 29; Head of Croquet ' 29; Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; Ad- visory Board ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; Athletic Council ' 29. Jane may be small, but that doesn ' t mean anything. She can be heard, if perhaps not seen, everywhere. She is very smart and conscientious. It certainly is a joy to have people like that around. She is a worthy member of Philomatheia, and her scientific mind combined with her talkative powers keep the meetings alive. Her sparring partner is Estelle Levering, and where she is there Jen will be also. SENIORS 29 ELIZABETH McALLISTER " Betty Mac " Methuen, Mass. Welleslev Five Years Posture Honor Roll ' 25, ' 26; Armband ' 25; Honor Roll ' 26; Second Hockey Team ' 26; Arm- hand ' 26; Numerals ' 26; Abbot Birthday Committee ' 27, ' 28; Prom Committee ' 28; Advisory Board ' 28; Secretary A. C. A. ' 28; Senior-Mid Representative on Student Government ' 28; Gar- goyle Cheer Leader ' 28; Gargoyle Hockey Team ' 28; Varsity Hockey Team ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Draper Dramatics ' 28; Head of Hockey ' 29; President of L. B. A. ' 29; Athletic Council ' 29; Hiking Leader ' 29; Chairman Entertainment Committee ' 29; Head School Cheer Leader ' 29; Fidelio ' 25, ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; L. B. A. ' 25, ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29. Deep-toned laughter, and all the vitality possible are bundled together with sweet seriousness in Betty Mac. Her love of hockey is second only to her dancing, and we can ' t imagine Abbot without her to manage things. At Intervale she took all prizes for her pro- ficiency in skijoring in spite of her skinned knees. And if you ever see a far-away look in her eyes — it ' s Hanover or perhaps Amherst! We might all suggest three cheers for Betty Mac. MARGUERITE NEVILLE -Peg " North Andover, Mass. Cambridge School of Handicrafts Five Years 30 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Armband ' 25; Honor Roll ' 25; Class Vice-President ' 26; Class Vice-President ' 27; Posture Honor Roll ' 27; ' 28, Q. E. D. ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. Green car, bright colors, contagious laugh, and many men! Yes, of course it ' s Peg, and maybe we don ' t envy her dashing around the circle in " Susie " , and her countless stories of " last night we did this, and the night before we did that " . Peg has been here for five years, and Abbot will surely miss her next year. We all agree that Peg is an all-around good sport, and being good-natured is one of her virtues. ELIZABETH OSBORNE " Beth " " Ozzie " Boston, Mass.

Beth is our infant prodigy. During her four years here at Abbot she has shown the rest of us that not age, but brains, are what really count. Indeed, she amuses everyone with her quick wit, and we all admit her superior ability in all lines from literature to athletics. Last year she brought the Andover star to our prom, and can we ever forget her in the pink taffeta with the bustle, and little black velvet ribbons at neck and wrists? ELIZABETH JANE OSBORNE " Betty Jane " Arlington, Mass. Wildcliff Two Years Numerals ' 28; Honor Roll ' 28, ' 29; Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; Stu- dent Council ' 29; Second Vice-President of Student Government SENIORS 31 ' 29; Class Book Board ' 29; Abbot Birthday Committee ' 29; Fidelio ' 28, ' 29; Second Tennis Team ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. Betty Jane is such a darling! Temperament? Charming! Capable? And how! Brilliant? No end! Attractive? What we mean! In the first place cast an eye on those glorious cheveux! No wonder Columbia Military Acade- my thinks there ' s a fire! Betty Jane is an accomplished individual and if she weren ' t so sweet we ' d be terribly envious. She seems to be able to manage anything from horses to the honor roll. CHARLOTTE OSGOOD " Charley " Andover, Mass. Hockey Team ' 29; Club Hockey Team ' 28, ' 29; Senior Play ' 29; Posture Committee ' 29. She ' s the jolly girl! Mrs. Gray certainly knew what she was doing when she picked Charley for that part in the Senior Play. Also Betty Mac chose well when she made Charley the right wing on our famous hockey team. Did you ever see anyone run quite as fast as she did that well-re- membered day at Bradford? An- other one of Charley ' s very special points is her lovely, wavy brown hair. It ' s the kind of hair you see in advertisements but usually seems too good to be true — except on someone as cute as Charley is! 32 THE ABBOT CIRCLE CLEONE DUNHAM PLACE " die " West Newton, Mass. Two Years Hockey Team ' 28, ' 29; Baseball Team ' 28; Numerals ' 28; Class Book Board (Business Manager) ' 29; Gargoyle Captain ' 29; Ath- letic Council ' 29; Entertainment Committee ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; Draper Dramatics ' 28; A. D. S. Play ' 29; A. D. S. Society ' 28, ' 29; Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Northfield Delegate ' 28. " We sing to you, O Cleone " sing the Griffins of the Gargoyle captain, and the Gargoyles grin proudly as well they may. She is a good leader, and she has marked athletic ability. She is also one of the famous members of A. D. S. who can take a man ' s part in a play and make her audience forget she really is a girl. Who can for- get Pompdehile, or Milord Devereaux? But the best thing about Cleone is her everlasting good humor and wit. She can make anyone laugh. We sure do sing to you, Cleone! DESPINA GEORGIA PLAKIAS " Deppy " Brookline, Mass. and Greece Three Years Class Treasurer ' 27; Posture Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28; Posture Repre- sentative ' 28; Fidelio ' 27, ' 28; Librarian of Fidelio ' 28; Athletic Council ' 29; Head of Hiking ' 29; Griffin Cheer Leader ' 29; Class Cheer Leader ' 29; A.

Deppy came to us full of that south-country attraction, that inb orn depth of sentiment which charmed us on the spot. Qualities which make us so readily open our hearts to her, combine to make SENIORS :5:5 her our finest actress. As a man she is indeed most exciting, but we like her best of all as the beautiful and vivacious Prudence Van Hay den — great-aunt and niece — in Jazz and Minuet. And she can dance off stage as well as on. As our cheer leader she merrily waves us on with her little stick after a preliminary " Let ' s have a little song! " As for her own singing, there ' s " Half a Moon is Better than No Moon " , " Angela Mia " , and " You Don ' t Like it— Not Much " . No, Deppy dear, we don ' t like you — not much ! BETTINA ROLLINS " Teena " Winchester, Mass., Newport, N. H. Hollins College Two Years Odeon ' 28, ' 29; Secretary of Student Council ' 29; Merit Com- mittee ' 29; Student Council ' 29; Head of Snow Sports ' 29; Fidelio ' 29; Hiking Leader ' 29; North- field ' 28; Tea Dance Committee ' 28; Prom Committee ' 29. What with your marvelous danc- ing, Teena, and that charming smile, which takes such an elegant picture, we wonder how many hearts you have broken. Teena skates very well, and as you see above, she is a stalwart pillar of our worthy student council. She combines a serious steadiness with delightful social ability and powerful leadership. What more could you ask? 34 THE ABBOT CIRCLE MARY KIRKLAND ROYS Aurora, N. Y. Oberlin Four Years Volleyball Team ' 26; Armband ' 26; Numerals ' 27; Fidelio ' 28; Courant ' 27, ' 28; Class Book Board ' 29; Poetry Book for Cen- tennial ' 29. Mary is quite the debater, and it is said that she lends great zest to Miss Chickering ' s classes. Mary is usually deep in a book, so inter- ested that at times even bells are forgotten. That ' s what we call real absorption — especially when they ' re dinner bells! When she ' s not studying, if we listen closely to the strains from the music Bay, we can easily distinguish the quick loud chords of the Arensky waltz or something equally impressive — and we know it ' s Mary and Jean ! RUTH LUELLA SHULZE Andover, Mass. Pratt Institute Four Years Ruth, the musician, is as much at home at the organ as at the piano. And it ' s a real treat when she consents to play for us to dance in the " rec " room. Didn ' t we keep her busy at Intervale? We really got acquainted with her there, and found her to be quite a peppy individual and heaps of fun (even if her midnight call from New York did wake us all up !) Ruth is to be commended for her dress-making ability and her tendencies toward housework, too. She ' ll make some man a nice wife someday (soon). SENIORS 35 Knox College EDITH BLAKE SMITH Torrington, Conn. Two Years Odeon ' 28; Secretary-Treasurer Odeon ' 29. Edith may seem rather quiet to the rest of the school, but the girls on the second floor front know better. Often times the Sabbath peacefulness is destroyed by shrieks and bursts of laughter coming from her " alley " . She and Audrie are at it again. iVt Intervale we all learned what a good sport she can be. She turned out to be quite a snow-shoer, particularly when it meant getting to Conway for a hot dog ! MILLICENT CLARK SMITH " Millie " New Bedford, Mass.

As skipper of our school, Mil- lie has carried us safely through many a bad storm. Though she can be stern and dignified when the occasion demands, we know and love her for her good 36 THE ABBOT CIRCLE fun and enthusiasm. She has that rare combination of brains and humor. Millie is the backbone of many enterprises and we can truthfully say that she has done her very best for Abbot. Millie has one pet aversion, however, and that ' s — cats! GRACE ELIZABETH STEPHENS " Gay " Easthampton, New York Two Years Vice-President of Class ' 29; Philomatheia ' 28, ' 29; Club Volley- ball Team ' 28; Hiking Leader ' 29; Numerals ' 29; Club Basketball Team ' 29; Second Varsity Basket- ball Team ' 29; Student Council ' 29; Chairman Abbot Birthday Committee ' 29. Grace, or " Gay " , as she is generally called, is the girl with the slow smile which, when it does come and her eyes squint, counts for twice as much as others. Slow, deliberate, and " never-in-a-hurry " , seem to characterize her pretty well — but this doesn ' t mean she never gets things done. Grace is a star " math " pupil and a most efficient chairman of the Abbot Birthday Committee and she got her high-heeled evening slippers here in record speed for the Senior Play! She and " Duffy " are almost inseparable; where one is, there is the other also. And what a pair they make! Clever re- partee and silly jokes, no end! JEAN ELIZABETH STEWART Mt. Vernon, New York Columbia University Three Years Aeolian Society ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Varsity Archery Team ' 28; Club Archery Team ' 28, SENIORS 37 Jean is pretty quiet most of the time except in room 60 at nine o ' clock at night. Music and ar- chery are her main interests, and she has appeared in a great many recitals. She goes around a lot with Katrina and Mary, and when all three get together there ' s sure to be excitement. We really do like the way you crinkle up your eyes when you laugh ! ELIZABETH CHILDS TAYLOR " Betty " " Bet " Melrose, Mass. Katherine Gibbs Two Years Abbot Birthday Committee ' 29; Northfield Delegate ' 28; Enter- tainment Committee ' 29; Secre- tary-Treasurer of Griffin Club ' 29; Property-Manager of Senior Play ' 29; Prom Committee ' 29; Dance Committee ' 29. When it comes to laughing Betty nearly equals Cobb. (Com- petition on the third floor front !) Though some of us may not know about it, Betty is music- ally inclined, and intends to con- tinue her study after leaving Abbot. Bet likes to be thought of as a proverbial man-hater; but when it comes to a certain blond, well, it seems ladies prefer them too. And won ' t she have a good time in Boston next year? Well, rather ! 38 THE ABBOT CIRCLE LOUISE TOBEY Manchester, N. H. Two and One-Half Years Aeolian Society ' 28, ' 29; Fidelio ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Choir ' 27, ' 28, ' 29; Advisory Board ' 28; English V Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29. Louise has a lovely, clear so- prano voice which forms an ex- cellent contrast to Peg ' s strong, rich mezzo. She plays the piano and organ, and is the most versa- tile of all our musicians. We shall always remember her " angelic " tones coming down from the organ loft, so high up above our heads. Louise is very friendly and cheerful, and can hardly walk ten steps without three or four little skips and a hop or two thrown in for good measure. Simmons CAROL UPHAM Waban, Mass. Two Years Courant Board ' 28, ' 29; Honor Roll ' 28; Hiking Leader ' 29. Carol ' s wavy blonde hair is the envy of all us dark-haired people; and we are told that she has a clear head underneath it, for keeping the Courant diary is quite a job in itself. She also performs one of the most dangerous feats at Abbot — that of putting up the mail each day. We all take it out on Carol if our correspondence lags, and she takes all our complaints with a smile. But really, Carol dear, we don ' t mean a word of it! SENIORS 39 OLIVE CHRISTIE WARDEN ' ' Polly " Andover, Mass. Wellesley Three Years Honor Roll ' 28; Odeon ' 28, ' 29; President of Odeon ' 29; Senior- Mid Play ' 28; Senior Play ' 29; Abbot Birthday Committee ' 28. Orange knitted cap and sweater, brown leather coat, and brown cloth skirt — whom could these mean but Olive? She enlivens our Eng- lish classes with cute little poems to " Trippie " and articles on Vesuvius ' s latest eruption. Olive ' s dramatic abilities are not the least of her accomplishments, and she makes an excellent president of Odeon. ROSAMOND DEVEREUX WHEELER Andover, Mass. Smith College N Senior-Mid Play ' 28; Enter- tainment Committee ' 29; Numer- als ' 29. Shiny black curls, twinkling blue eyes, shy smiles? Right you are, it ' s Rosamond. Not many of us knew Rosamond last year but it didn ' t take us more than one or two visits in the Senior Parlor for us all to find out how much we like her and what a lot we missed last year. She may be quiet but, oh, what mischief hides behind those twinkling eyes ! Two Years 40 THE ABBOT CIRCLE PRISCILLA WHITTEMORE Andover, Mass. Five Years Odeon ' 28, ' 29; English V Plays. We can never forget Priscilla ' s English V play: " Fishermen ' s Wives " . Not only did she write this moving sketch, but also played to perfection the part of Olga ' s mother. We know her love of natural history, and if you wish to know anything about bird or beast, ask Priscilla. Her great talent for art enables her to make excellent scientific drawings. We understand she may take up veterinary work at the University of Maine. Perhaps she will end up at Cornell. Hail to P. Whitte- more, our future representative in the scientists ' hall of fame! EMELYN WRIGHT " Em " " Emmy " Andover, Mass. Five Years Fidelio ' 27; Aeolian ' 28, ' 20; Accompanist for Fidelio ' 29. " Em " is a day scholar, and we surely wish she lived here at school because she is great fun. We got to know her very well at Intervale. She and Ruth furnished the music for our dancing. And can she play ! They also wrote one of our songs, which was just another of Em ' s musical achieve- ments. She is one of Mr. Howe ' s talented organ pupils, and someday probably she ' ll be the organist at the " Met " . Senior Class Song Tune: " Ph. Marching Song " A loyal class — fair ' 29, We march on down the line, Keeping all our standards high and fine. With purpose steady and aim so true Our love for Abbot blue Spurs us on, Our very best to do. So we give three cheers for the Green and White, And ever our friendships plight To Abbot our guiding light. Forever more may that star shine, Ever brightened by the Class of ' 29.

And as she rocked she knitted, And as she knitted, she thought Of the school she had just founded And built on the Abbot Street lot, With the thought and the labor of years A true, great work of love With a purpose fine and steadfast And the help of God above. She dreamed of a lovely campus, And many buildings more, And as her thoughts went roaming, A knock came at the door. 46 THE ABBOT CIRCLE A dark-eyed gypsy entered And begged to be allowed To tell Dame Abbot ' s future As she saw it in a cloud. She crossed her palm with silver And watched the gypsy wise Revealing future stories Which were written in the skies. " A hundred years from now, " she said, " Your school will have a class Of forty-nine fair debutantes Who cannot be surpassed. In work they ' ll be proficient And in society too But some as housewives will prefer Their homely tasks to do. " The gypsy told each member And what each one would do And since it all applies to us I ' ll pass it on to you. Jo-Jo, our lovely president Goes flying through the air — Her aviator husband Takes her winging everywhere. At taking care of sick folks Kay Blunt will quite succeed : She ' s bright and quick and cheerful That ' s what all patients need. As it were Kay B. will learn to care For a Marblehead yachtsman bold With Kay at the helm of his Hereshoff He ' ll win trophies of solid gold. THE PROPHECY OF 1929 47 Money, money, money, Is all our Bessie wants; She ' ll beg for it forever And all our dreams she ' ll haunt. ' Lish in love has fallen. Cupid couldn ' t fail To bring to her a hubby Who ' s a " grad " of dear old Yale. Richard Halliburton Chose Serena for his wife Climbing in the Andes Is their true idea of life. Gertrude Campion will plan To be a great musician But I can see her married To an Andover physician. Cobb is living blithely In a wee snug bungalow Abbot household science Made a cook of her, we know. Ginny now lives in Hayti — That wonderful " Magic Isle " — She married an officer down there, They ' ll be back to the States in a while. May Eaton soon will marry And have at least four boys, They ' ll live out in the country On account of all their noise. Her portrait of Lady Lindbergh Will win the Nobel Prize, And thus in the world of painting Miss Elliot will rise. 48 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Art was Olive ' s weakness, But she won ' t design for long. A love bird soon will warble His most fascinating song. Margaret will be in opera And will sing to queens and kings. Her arias are most heavenly And every note just rings. Diggin ' away in far Egypt — Archaeology is her line — Dot Field will uncover " Tut ' s " brother So her fame will never decline. The Manse is run by Barbara Folk Her meals are quite a treat. She caters just to Phillips boys And other such elite. Julia Marlowe passed away But Polly takes her part. For when it comes to acting, Miss Francis knows her art. Dot Gerrish will run the Polly Prim And make the girls look sweet. At waves and facials she ' ll excel And " coif " the town ' s elite. Gilly dressed in ivory white A lovely bride of June, With Ned goes marching down the aisle Their wedding takes place soon. A Phi Beta Kappa is Lois The head of all honor rolls She knows everything in existence And her praise ' 29 now extolls. THE PROPHECY OF 1929 V.) Jeanette will run a stylish shop Competing well with Jay ' s. Her clothes are quite the latest thing But what a price one pays! " There always will be quarrels " So Betty Hulse will say; Law will be her business And my, how it will pay. Mrs. Lee Whittles, nee Hurlburt, As his charming and pretty wife, Will find that it ' s not so easy To lead a doctor ' s life. Jarman went to England And married some great Lord. Joyce, a high-bred Lady, Will never drive a Ford. Jones is a very common name It ' s Eleanor ' s regret. But I just know she ' ll change it For a Greek name better yet. " Gwen " rhymes with men — how appropriate They flock wherever she goes; But the one she ' ll choose to marry Is a secret no man knows. Cobb ' s dear " apple dumpling " Is Bobby Kendall ' s name, And as a D. C. debutante She soon will win her fame. Kay Kennedy will marry Her name, you know, was Love, And she will be successful As a cooing turtle-dove. 50 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Estelle sits in the Senate A politician keen; And helps to make this nation Keep its business clean, Jane Linn will buy a soap box, And keep on talking ' til The Day of Judgment happens; Then, perhaps, she will keep still. Betty Mac with five blonde sons Is quite a busy wife, But she just laughs and quite believes That marriage is the life. She still speeds round in Susie, But Peg, a married dame, Has a car just full of kiddies To help keep the family name. Beth will compete with Berlin Writing songs both sad and gay She brightens the lives of many In this happy, musical way. " E. J. " will not marry Deane She ' ll meet another sheik, And she and he will marry Having loved for just one week. A policewoman of Andover Charlotte Osgood will be; And if you break a single law She ' ll soon be after ye. Our Cleone will not lack a Place In history ' s pages great. She ' ll practice law, and thus will win In every hot debate. THE PROPHECY OF 1929 .51 Deppy interprets any tongue For ministers of state. One day she ' ll marry one of them And live a life sedate. Bettina will run a nursery With the wealth she will receive. That she ' s wonderful with children We can very well believe. Mary Roys will vie with Shakespeare For her literary fame Genius will spur her onward And the world will know her name. Swishing skirt of grasses, A winsome hula girl, Ruth Shulze in Ziegfeld ' s chorus Does a never-ending twirl. Edith Smith seems quiet to some, But really she ' s no saint. Her life will be a lively one — The details I won ' t paint. A school for high-class children — Miss Stephens at the prow Will coach the wealthy kiddies For their future social bow. Rachmaninoff, he will soon pass — And Paderewski, too. But if we have Jean Stewart We won ' t miss the other two. Betty Taylor will make costumes For all Flo Ziegfeld ' s shows. Getting properties for Seniors She ' s learned that line, one knows. 52 THE ABBOT CIRCLE The governor ' s sweet daughter, Louise, is famous in our land, Cuz Allan Hoover now is seeking To possess her fair young hand. Carol Upham ' s editor Of New York ' s famous " Times " . For such a well-known person One should not concoct rhymes. A minister ' s wife is Miss Wheeler She runs all his social affairs, And finds that the life of the clergy Is weighed down with very great cares. After she leaves fair Wellesley She ' ll teach for a year or two; But with winsome eyes like Polly ' s Teaching will never do. The playwright of the Senior class, Priscilla Whittemore, Will have five plays on Broadway, And still go on writing more. At Loew ' s State or some such theatre Emelyn will play each night. With her calm and haunting love tunes Any show will go off right. Her life ' s not worth a nickel After all this awful verse. The best thing left for Millie Is to ride off in a hearse. Dear Madame Abbot has gone from us The gypsy strolls no more, But you and I will live to see The great truths of her lore. Class Will We, the Class of 1929 of Abbot Academy, being of sound and sane mind and memory (generally speaking), do make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament. To the school we leave: 1. Maxim silencers for all the bells. 2. Fund for an orchestra to play during dinner. 3. Shutters for Homestead. 4. A century plant for the class of 2029. 5.

We ' ve been hoping and longing and waiting For this time in our Abbot days, When at last we ' ve gained a symbol Of the work we ' ve accomplished here, A ring of this golden metal Tiny, but to our hearts how dear. When we have left Abbot days behind And are out on our own in the world, Each bearing her own banner of life Which for her Abbot has unfurled, Then our rings will bring back dearest memories Though our roads may be far apart, And we ' ll cherish always for our mother school That great love which lies deep in our heart.

Mary Roys Parting Hymn 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. INTpRW£ Intervale Softness — of dusty, olive-green, scrub pines and lavender-mauve birch twigs against the dark sombreness of cedar and hemlock. Softness — of pale-green lichen-moss on the smooth, mottled-gray, masculine-sinewed bark of blue beeches. Softness — of powdered-snow baby-pillows tucked in the gnarled elbows of old oak trees ; and fluffy cloud-reflections in the polished-blue steel of a stream. Softness — of a lazy faintly-whimsical curl of train-smoke against periwinkle-gray dawn-touched Mt. Washington. Mary Roys Intervale On February fourth of this year, a beautiful new world was opened up to us Seniors. We came to know truly what previously had been a mere vague impression. We began on that day to dis- cover the magic behind the word " Intervale " . We felt the atmosphere immediately upon arrival. A huge sleigh drawn by four horses conveyed us to the " Belle vue " . The sign " Welcome, Abbot " which first met our eyes made us feel at home at once. Within an hour we were all arrayed in our sport togs, and ready for anything. Thus began four days in which we tried every imaginable type of winter sport. It was wonderful having the toboggan slide and skating rink right outside the door. In the wee, small hours of the morning we watched the sun color the mountains with a crimson hue. It was our loving com- panion, Miss Bailey, who divulged this early morning secret. At night our main amusement was a walk in the pitch black to North Conway. Will we ever forget Betty Mac ' s wild tele- phone call? We were so surprised to find we had a Sue Carroll in our midst. One of our chief pastimes was posing in front of numerous cameras. One of the photographers called Jo-Jo the " Abbess of Abbot. " What could he have meant?? Speaking of pastimes, we can ' t afford to leave out the food. Kay Bowden and Jarman took prizes in that line, ' though we all were close on their heels. The last night we were there, snow began to fall lazily. We all made our way through the " Cathedral " woods to " Wyehut " where we sat around four crackling fires. There we ate delicious flapjacks and sang every song we could think of. The next morning the snow was still falling. This time the Merriman Woods was the scene of our activities. We snowshoed and snowshoed with Miss Bailey, who later took more pictures of our wet, bedraggled selves. A strange sadness came over us all when the time for departure drew near. It was hard to leave the place we had grown to love, the place that had bound us more firmly together, not only as a class, but as a group of true friends. We will cherish forever the memory of those four marvelous days. Songs of Intervale (Tune — " Happy Days and Lonely Nights " ) Riding in our private car We ' ve been journeying forth afar To lovely Intervale. Many jolly things we ' ve done There out in the snow and sun At merry Intervale. But while we winter-sported We thought, oh faculty, How dear you are to seniors, As dear as dear can be. Last night beneath the pine tree spires We sat round the blazing fires, Wishing that you were there. As we ate countless flapjacks Hot our faces, cold our backs, We wished you had your share. (Tune — " There ' s a Rainbow ' Round My Shoulder " ) There were mountains all around us And skies of blue above, So we ' re happy now as we can be ' Cause we had fun. There was skiing and tobogganing, Skating, trailing, coasting, too. We tripped and fell, we ' re black and blue, But we had fun. So don ' t look at us with such a stare, For some day you too will all be there To enjoy the sports and view so rare, And oh, what food! Oh, gee. There were mountains all around us And skies of blue above, So we ' re happy now as we can be, ' Cause we had fun. : " ■. ■■■ ■■■■■■■..■■■■■•■..■.■■■■■..■.■■■■,..■.■■.■..■■. . r " Wrf:« SONGS OF INTERVALE 71 (Tune — " We Faw Down and Go Boom " ) We went up to Intervale, Intervale, Intervale, We went trailing down the vale We faw down and go boom ! We went skating on the ice, on the ice, on the ice, We were going along so nice We faw down and go boom ! We climbed, we dined, we went tobogganing, We skiied, we sleighed, and how that certain place was hurtin ' , We had moving pictures taken, pictures taken, pictures taken, We had fancy skating taken We faw down and go boom ! (Tune — " Doing the Raccoon " ) Oh, the football games at Princeton, and the hockey games at Yale Haven ' t got an edge on Abbot, when we go to Intervale. We skated in the moonlight, and we snowshoed in the twilight, We stayed up ' most the whole night, And not doing our Virgil or Psych. A gayer crowd of girls you ' 11 never find, We didn ' t miss the old scholastic grind, For we skated in the moonlight, and we snowshoed in the twilight, We stayed up ' most the whole night, And not doing our Virgil or Psych. (Tune— " A Little 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 leave 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. Snowstorm The slanting stitches of snow embroider heavy, wool-white, masses of softness on the down-hanging branches of fir-trees. There is pale-lemon and gray-lavender on the snow-covered paper birches; and the rough, scaly, bark of white pines is shaded in dark rose-tan. The little bushes are deep-sea coral with delicate, intricate, branches of pure-alabaster white; and all the old stumps and posts are capped and mantled with cotton-soft, clinging, snow- dampness.

To win this A two hundred and fifty points must be gained. This may be done by making different athletic teams and by taking the required number of walks and rides. When the " A ' s " are awarded, scholarship, spirit, general attitude, and discipline are all considered.

The Gargoyles and Griffins were inaugurated here in the fall of 1927 to promote enthusiasm in our athletic contests. The school was divided, and old girls chosen for each club so that the athletic ability in one might equal that in the other as closely as possible. Try-outs were held last fall in order to determine the new girls ' membership, and we feel that the division is well-nigh perfect. The clubs have played the game fairly in every sport, and the captains have maintained wonderful spirit both years. The Gargoyles were the victors the first year, but the Griffins may inscribe their name on the shield of honor this year just to even things up.

Anthony Abbot Dramatic Society The Abbot Dramatic Society was inaugurated in 1924 by a group of competent young girls who wished to further their dramatic interests and ability. The enthusiasm with which the society was begun has never dwindled and the organization has now grown to be one of importance. Since its establishment it has presented an annual play in which the ability and energy of the members are shown. During the months, meetings are held for the purpose of reading and dis- cussing plays. The Dramatic Society has been very devoted to its interests and is increasing its already high prestige.

Its aim is to bring together girls who have a common interest in music and who are willing to give up a part of their time to entertainment as well as to research along lines agreed upon by the society. The lives of com- posers have been studied and papers read with illustrations either vocal or instrumental. During the spring term a program upon which the members have been working during the past year, is given to the whole school. Both fun and education are derived from this society which we consider truly worth while.

She is very innocent because she has been sheltered from all contact with the outside world. Pierrot, the leader of a troupe of mummers which has just come to town, sees Prunella one day and falls in love with her. He woos her and finally persuades her to elope with him. She becomes his Pierrette. Not long after their marriage, Pierrette, who really loves Pierrot, finds that he considers her just an episode in his life and that he is too self -centered for true love. He leaves her for a short time, and upon his return discovers that she has left him. Crestfallen, because he realizes that she is not a passing fancy but a true love, he decides to go back to the little Dutch garden where he had first found her. In the meantime, Prunella, who is Pierrette no longer, goes home hoping to find her aunts, but everything has changed and the house is in the hands of a new owner. Homeless, Prunella goes to sleep in the garden underneath the statue of Love. Here, Pierrot, who is the new owner of the Dutch garden, finds her and finally forgets himself in his great love for her.

Miss Wells Mr. Jackson Elizabeth Brewer Helen Simpson Charlotte Gay Chamberlain Barbara Lamson Katharine Foster DRAMATICS 109 Martha ' s Mourning Martha s Mourning by Phoebe Hoffman was a difficult play whose scene was laid in the poor home of a miserly woman and her niece. The lines offered very little relief in humor, but the parts were so well taken that the intensity of the action, subtle as it was, carried it through successfully. " Aunty " was particularly well characterized, and the play never seemed to go beyond her scope as it might have with so many amateurs.. We felt that this more serious piece was a very acceptable prelude to the following play. F D S PLAY CAST Martha Audrie Griffiths Aunty Janice Lovell Neighbor Eleanor Jones Jazz and Minuet A. D. S. chose Jazz and Minuet by Ruth Giorlof f with the audience in mind, as the play offered just the right proportions of modern and old comedy to appeal to us all. The story is of a modern girl ' s rebellious attitude toward her business-bound fiance, and her dream after reading a great aunt ' s diary. The lines fairly dance along with quick wit and feeling, and are a true expression of the modern young woman. The contrast between the old and new costume adds a bit of color and a duel in a modern play pre- sents quite a novelty.

Now and one hundred and fifty years ago 110 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Einer Muss Heirathen We have all seen comedies in English, and some of us in French, but very few of us had enjoyed a real German " Lustspiel " before last fall. Through the efforts of Miss Baker and the German department we were able to follow the trials and tribulations of Jakob and Wilhelm Zorn in Einer Muss Heirathen by Alexander Wilhelmi. The aunt of these two brothers insists that one of them carry out their dead father ' s wish and marry, so that she will have someone to help her about the house. This order sends the con- firmed bachelors into a frenzy. When they are somewhat calmed it naturally follows that the only fair way to decide the issue is to draw lots. Jakob is the victim and with the aid of Wilhelm starts to court his cousin Luise. However, Wilhelm, in demonstrating the art of love to his brother, succumbs to the charm of Luise. This releases Jakob and makes everyone happy. Even those who were not familiar with the German language were able to enjoy the many amusing scenes of this comedy. The German songs also lent atmosphere to the evening.

To change one ' s shape; To fast; perchance to starve; aye there ' s the rub; For to that starving soul temptations come, When we have shuffled off desire for sweet, To give us pause : there ' s the respect That makes calamity of such a diet; For who would bear against the smell of apple dumplings, The teacher ' s threat, the senior ' s contumely, The pangs of empty stomach, ham and eggs, The insolence of rules, and the spurns The patient fat one of the skinny takes, When she herself might eat a house down In one great mouthful? Who exerts herself, To grunt and sweat under weary exercise, But that the dread of giving up some food, An undiscovered pleasure, which temptation No one refuses, puzzles the will, And makes us rather bear the pound we have Than be uncomfortable for a single moment? Thus hunger does make cowards of us all And thus the noble point of resolution Is sicklied o ' er with the pale cast of thought, And calories of great power and value With this regard are tempted to our stomachs, And use the name of action. 118 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Complex Cures Check questions in each group either " yes " or " no " .
