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.

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.
