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 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.

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!
