We ' ve seen her in the music rooms with Willa, and other places. She can ' t fool us. Also, what a cheery person she always is. She never complains, even though sometimes she has cause to. And what would A. D. S. do without her 5 Wasn ' t she stun- ning in " Overtones " ? A true blue New Englander turned into a typical society-woman.

She bears the brunt of the Christmas party, the teas, and discussion groups. What would we do without her? And we don ' t envy your frequent tasks of collecting money, Ruth, but we take our hats ofF to you for the fine results you achieve. 10 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 ELIZABETH BREWER " Pat " Larchmont, New York Smith Two years Choir ' 29 Senior-Mid Play ' 29 Fidelio ' 29 Draper Dramatics ' 29 A. D. S. ' 30 A. D. S. Play ' 30 Senior Play ' 30 Will you ever forget Pat as Kate in " The Taming of the Shrew " ? She displayed a temper quite equal to her red hair. Indeed, Pat is destined to be a second Ethel Barrymore or perhaps another Mrs. Fiske. Pat and Miriam sometimes seem very quiet, but we are told that room 63 often resounds with shouts of laughter. DONNA BRACE Pelham Manor, New York Five vears Fidelio ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Les Beaux Arts ' 30 Secretary-Treasurer of Griffins ' 30 Class Treasurer ' 28 Volley Ball Team ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29 Numerals ' 27 Abbot Birthday Committee ' 28 Entertainment Committee ' 28 First Griffin Basketball Team ' 29 Donna is tall and distinguished looking and always looks like a model from Worth ' s. She spends most of her time listening to the radio or vyriting to Jack. Yes, we think she will look very well in white. Any time you walk into the Food Shop you are almost sure to find Donna there, eating a sandwich and reading the Saturday Evening Post. 11 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 ELIZABETH BROWN " Berrf Nyack, New York Smith College Two years Odeon ' 29, ' 30 Hiking Leader ' 30 Gargoyle Basketball Team ' 30 This young lady is a close rival of the Prince of Wales in riding or shall we sav falling ability. She has a very subtle humor and it is constantly bursting out in her clever repartee. Betty can write in a marvelous fashion and her literary talents are constantly seen gracing the pages of the Courant. Because of this abilitv she is a valued member of Odeon. ELAINE BURTT " Op " Andover, Massachusetts Mount Holvoke Four vears Aeolian ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Fidelio ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Class Book ' 30 Posture Committee ' 30 Posture Honor Roll ' 28, ' 29 Numerals ' 28 Abbot Birthdav Committee ' 29 Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Club Basketball Team ' 29, ' 30 Senior Play ' 30 Class Treasurer ' 28 Elaine is one of the versatile members of our class. She is a musician, ask Aeolian and the day scholars; an artist, any underclassman who has bought some of her used books will agree with that; a writer, many things in this book and in the Couranr will testify to this, and in addition, she is a strong supporter of the Honor Roll. 12 The Abbot Circle 19 3 ROSAMOND CASTLE Posy Smith Secretary of Class ' 30 Advisory Board ' 29 Posture Honor Roll ' 28 Quincy, Illinois Three vears L. B. A. ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Fidelio ' 28, ' 29 Abbot Birthdav Committee ' 28 Posy, the girl with the contagious laugh can be called upon at any time to add pep to a crowd. One of her greatest accomplishments is to be able to read a book during a bridge game and think nothing of nnking a grand slam at various intervals. She keeps the records of our class and also shows her artistic abilitv as an able member of Les Beaux Arts. CHARLOTTE GAY CHAMBERLAIN Sharon, Connecticut Vassar Courant Board ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Business Manager of Courant Honor Roll ' 27, ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Draper Dramatics ' 28, ' 29 Senior Mid Play ' 29 Four years Senior Play 30 Class Treasurer ' 27 Treasurer A. C. A. ' 30 Advisory Board ' 30 Numerals ' 29 Form Riding Team ' 28, ' 29 As we look back over our school years we feel that Gay is one of the most indispensable members of our class. Her readiness to accept, and her ability to carry through any and all of the tasks which require time, patience, and headwork have earned for Gay the admiration and gratitude of us all. If it hasn ' t been the Class Treasury or the A. C. A. Treasury, it has been the business end of the Courant; and never a com- plaint from Gay. To top it all she is a perennial member of the honor roll and carries off honors in dramatics and sports. And it isn ' t everyone that can win a Bradford Day Cup for form riding! 13 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 Vassar ELENITA COWEE " Nita " Brookline, Massachusetts Two years Elenita is one of the few members of our class who has a legible and at the same time stylish hand-writing. Then, too, she has show-n musical ability, and can swing a mean hockey stick. But what hidden knowledge is betrayed by that mysterious little smile of yours, Elenita? Can it in any way concern a friend of that handsome double of yours sometimes seen about the streets of Andover? ELIZABETH C. DEAN " Betty " Brookline, Massachusetts Smith Three and one half vears Fidelio ' 27, ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Choir ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Second Varsitv Hockev Team ' 28, ' 29 Numerals ' 27 Varsity Hockey Team ' 30 Volley Ball Team ' 27, ' 28, ' 29 " A " Society ' 29, ' 30 Five Chevrons Aeolian ' 29, ' 30 President of Aeolian ' 30 Abbot Birthdav Committee ' 29 Senior Mid Play ' 29 Senior Play ' 30 Northfield Delegate ' 28 Head of Skating ' 30 Betty is our class bird. She can fly over ice or hockey field with equal speed and grace. And needless to say how she can warble! Furthermore she has kept her flock of Aeolian chirpers in good order, one more feather in her cap. She has winged her way over many a dance floor, and Betty, whence that far away look? Are you thinking of migrating so soon? 14 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 HORTENSE DUNBAR ■Doll " Lynn, Massachusetts Smith Abbot Birthday Committee ' 29 Advisory Board ' 30 Two years Fideii ' o ' 29 Doll we call her, and the name fits her well, for she has light wavy hair and beautiful eyes. She is one of our " cutest " . We have memories, Doll, of an orange and russet evening gown you wore the night of the Phillips prom. She almost rivals Helen Kane for " boop boop pa dooping " honors. And she can certainly drive even the most stubborn horses — " Giddyup Tri xie " . KATHRYN B. DLTTOX " Kay " Wakefield, Massachusetts Katharine Gibbs Two vears Numerals ' 29 Honor Roll ' 29, ' 30 Q.

We ' d all love to come right up to keep you company but — well, for some reason or other we don ' t do it. Kay seems quiet to outsiders but when she and Lucile get together the result is more than sufficient to counteract the previous statement, especially when it ' s a question of sending cards at Intervale. Isn ' t that right, Kay? 15 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 ALICE MARY ECKMAX Grosse He, Michigan; Forest Hills, Long Island Wellesley Two years Odeon Society ' 29, ' 30 Secretary-Treasurer of Odeon ' 30 Griffin Riding Team ' 29, ' 30 Spanish Tableaux ' 29 Second Varsity Riding Team ' 30 Numerals ' 30 Centennial Pageant ' 29 Alice is another of our members with great literary abilitv. We may be wrong but from all predictions it seems certain that her roommate and she will some day edit a successful magazine. Her greatest worry seems to be concerning the location of her next abode. Anyway we are awfully glad Alice that vou stayed right here with us for two years because we couldn ' t have done without you and your constant good humor. KATHIE FELLOW " S Salem, Massachusetts Four years President of the Senior Class ' 30 Student Council ' 30 Class Book Board ' 30 Discussion Group Leader ' 30 Senior Plav ' 30 Choir ' 30 ' Fidelio ' 29, ' 30 Head of Vollev Ball ' 29 Senior Mid Plav ' 29 Vollev Ball Team ' 28, ' 29 Advisorv Board ' 30 Aeolian ' 29, ' 30 President of the Class ' 29 Athletic Council ' 29 Numerals ' 29 Vice-President of Class ' 28 What would the class of ' 30 have been like without Kathie? Certainly no one could have made a better " Madame Presi- dent " or could have led class meetings, engineered the picnic, Intervale, the play and a whole list of other things with greater success. You have done more for Abbot than we can fully realize, Kathie, for we know there were a hundred little thankless jobs that you have done cheerfully and well. That white satin costume lined with delicate green was certainly stunning on you, Lucentio, and you have no idea how gracefully that snowy ostrich plume curved under your chin. The way you wooed the gentle Bianca, at re- hearsals particularly, was quite startling too, dashing Lucentio. Our love to you Kathie. We will remember you, and your smile. 16 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 Fidelio ' 27, ' 28 Gargoyle Track Team ' 28 Second Varsity Riding Team ' 28 Manager of Ice Sports ' 29 Spanish Entertainment ' 29 L.

Then, too, the way she plays tennis makes the Griffins sit up and take notice and they are still sitting up when she begins to skate. It ' s too bad, Kay, that the one time you fell down should be the time to crack vour knee, and we certainly missed you at Intervale. FLORENCE L. GARDNER New London, Connecticut Hollins College Three years Abbot Birthday Committee ' 28 Numerals ' 29 Club Volley Ball Team ' 29 Posture Honor Roll ' 29 Senior Play ' 30 No matter how gray the day is Florence always greets us with a cheery " hello " and a winning smile. She and M.irv are inseparable, even the wall between their rooms does not prevent their conversing. Florence must have a suppressed ambition for grand opera because she is always singing. The crowds that assemble in her room speak for her magnetic personality. 17 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 CORNELIA GOULD " Sis " Burkeville, Virginia Secretary of the Class ' 27 Fidelio ' ' 28, ' 29 " A " Society ' 29, ' 30 Tea Dance Committee ' 28 Athletic Council ' 29, ' 30 Numerals ' 29 Manager of Baseball ' 29 Varsity Basketball ' 29, ' 30 Captain of Basketball ' 30 Hiking Leader ' 30 A.

In addition to this she participates in them and shows her prowess in basketball and baseball. Her talents are also shown in the dramatic line. Her winning personality and pep have made her an indis- pensable member of our class. Don ' t ever try to argue with Sis against Virginia and Yale ' cause you can never convince her.

" " I don ' t know, but I just saw Ruthie on the way to the music room with a pile of music. Perhaps she is there. " O yes, of course Hammie ' s there. She just thrives on music, and we have memories of the way her nimble fingers can fly over the piano keys. We appreciate her help at A. C. A., too.

She was very good in the Senior play, and as for basketball she was always away from her guard when you wanted to throw the ball to her. Manv a time we have seen Jeanne in the Ford tearing around Andover and she is always willing to do something for ' you. We have heard a lot about the wonderful time the " A " Society had on their picnic at Rye, too. 19 The Abbot Circle 19 3 BARBARA HEALEY " hubby " North Andover, Massachusetts Brvn Mawr Five vears Fidelio ' 26, ' 27, ' 28, ' 29, ' 30 Q.

Simmons Odeon ALMA HILL Lowell, Massachusetts Two vears A quiet girL Well, yes, in some places, but what radical views she airs in English Class. We wonder if she confines them to school life. By the way, Alma, can you help us analvze those startling thumps which have frequently re- sounded through the Senior parlor?

She has any number of accomplishments. She is artistic, she can sing and write lovely poetry. Besides these talents, she has a habit of being most absent-minded, but that is the privilege of genius. Marianne also has the distinction of having black curly hair and of coming from Korea. CHRISTINE HOLLANDS Hornell, New York Wellesley A. D. S.

' 30 Christine holds the unique place of being our champion teaser (If you don ' t believe us, ask Janice) but in spite of her pranks we just cannot get cross with her — probably because of her contagious laugh and the merry, " isn ' t this-fun " ex- pression in her twinkling eyes. Christine is always on the go, from two minutes before the breakfast bell (when she gets up, breaking all records for speedy dressing) until lights our at night; no wonder she stays so thin to the envy of us all. 21 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 ALICE HOYT " Jackie " Salem, Massachusetts Three years Entertainment Committee ' 28 Advisory Board ' 28 Abbot Birthday Committee ' 28 Fidelio ; 28, ' 29, ' 30 Senior-Mid Banquet Committee ' 29 Draper Dramatics ' 29 Club Basketball Team ' 28 Head of Basketball ' 30 Second Basketball Team ' 30 Club Volley Ball Team ' 28, ' 29 Northfield Delegate ' 29 Athletic Council ' 30 Numerals ' 29 Posture Honor Roll ' 28 Posture Committee ' 30 Hiking Leader ' 30 Discussion Group Leader ' 30 Senior Play ' 30 Jackie, our notorious blonde! Almost any fall day we could see her out among the autumn leaves surrounded by a circle of aspiring athletes. As head of basketball she certainly did shine. As censor of records nothing need be said, and we all envy her, in that she can grin before the camera and not be afraid of having the picture look like a laughing hyena. (Whatever that looks like.)

Whether she is an old recluse or a dashing Petruchio, she is perfect. Her pep and personality are outstanding wherever she goes. The crowds that assemble in room 58 speak for themselves. Barbs is a fine athlete and excels in riding. She certainly can keep the mailman very busy. How about it Barbs? 22 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 LUCILE F. R.

If anvone wants to know about inseparables, just ask Kay or Lucile. They ought to be able to tell you. There is a certain Intervale snapshot of you, at full length on the ice, with Kay sitting on top of you. My, my, my, such an undignified position for Baptista to be in! Was Kay acting shrewish? Perhaps you wished " to sound the depths of this Knavery " , but decided not to when you considered your position on skates. There is another thing that we have noticed about Lucile, and that is that for some strange reason she is often very interested in the sports section of the Boston Herald. BARBARA V.

Her merry tunes are well known on the third floor front as is the familiar Wednesday evening query from various proctors, " Is Janice around? I have a proctor slip for her. " — Don ' t you dream of proctor slips Janice? However we don ' t think of you primarily as the head of proctors but as one of our ablest and most popular A. D. S. actresses. MARY McCASLIN " Mac " Pottstown, Pennsylvania The 111 man School Three years Numerals ' 29 Fidelio Society ' 29, ' 30 Aeolian Society ' 30 Mary, Mary, how did you manage to conceal those hidden talents for so long? If it hadn ' t been for Intervale we probably never would have known we had a second Gershwin in our midst. And wasn ' t her performance at the Students ' Recital one to make us all sit up and take notice? It certainly was. You ' ll be famous someday soon, Mary, and 1930 will be proud of you. And Mary, where do you go in certain classes when you have that heavenly, serene expression on your face? No doubt it ' s miles away but just where is it? And how do you do it? Tell us your secret! We want to go with you. 24 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 M RY JANE OWSLEY " iu " Youngstown, Ohio Smith Two years Vice-President of Class ' 30 Student Council ' 30 Odeon ' 29, ' 30 Gargoyle Volley Ball Team " 29 Centennial Pageant ' 29 Prom Decoration Committee ' 29 Usher in Centennial Parade How did it feel, Nini, to see yourself walking with Kathie in the Abbot movies of the Centennial Procession? We all think you looked mighty sweet, but then there seems to be an idea in the class that Nini is about the most even tempered, and one of the sweetest girls among us. What would we have done at Intervale without you to " Turn on That Intervale Moon " , for us? Then Inters ale snap- shots without you would certainly have been incomplete.

It ' s all right, Perry, we lo e you just the same.

We wonder if Barb carries an Encyclopedia with her. :- The Abbot Circle 19 3 Smith Courant Board ' 30 Senior-Mid Plav ' 29 MIRIAM RAND New York City Two years Advisory Board ' 30 Senior Plav ' 30 Who would ever suspect Miriam of having a suppressed desire to sew? We hear that she sews beautifully too, but probably while her fingers are busy she is thinking up some very exciting story to startle the English class the next Saturday.

As for basketball, the Gargoyles begin to feel sick when the ball gets down at her end of the field. Oh, yes, we have heard that " H " has become an ardent dog fancier.

She signed the contracts for the Class Book, and her help on the class book board was in- valuable. The Honor Roll would not have looked quite right without her name there. How could Q. E.

Then, if you should just happen to have heard gales of laughter on the third floor front some time, you can be pretty sure that Eleanor was somewhere around. 28 The Abbot Circle 19 3 DORIS SEILER " Dot " South Orange, New Jersey Vice-President of Class ' 26 L.

Perhaps since we have returned from our four-day trip to the White Mountains, the underclassmen have wondered just what is the charming significance of a word which can bring forth from every Senior, a smile and a rapturous look. To tell you of the snow-capped hills, of unsur- passed New Hampshire pines, of " rosy-fingered " sunrises, and golden sunsets; to tell you of flapjack-bats, of sleigh-rides, trailing parties, and skating by moonlight; to tell you of the wonderful meals, of the hospitality of the Bellevue, of the joy of perfect comradeship, and of a million other miscellaneous things, is to give but an inadequate explanation. We must excuse our insufficient powers of description and ask you, oh underclassmen, to wait and learn for yourself how the magical word, " Intervale " , acquired its powers. We are not the first Senior Class to sound your praises, Beautiful Intervale, but wt- aspire to sound those praises loudest of all. 53 The Abbot Circle 19 3 Intervale Songs (Tune: 0, hou I bate to get up in the morning) O. how we hated to leave New Hampshire, O, what a marvelous time we had. Though we were happy, gay and glad There was one thing which was sad, — We wished that you, too Our dear Faculty Could be with us up in the mountains, O. how vou would have enjoyed those sleigh-rides O, how vou would have loved the views. Up there where cold north winds do blow x nd gorgeous, stately pine-trees grow. Wed like to spend the rest of our lives in the snow (Tune : Am I blue) Am I stiff, am I lame, Will I ever again be the same? Am I bruised, am I sore, Yet I long to go back more and more. One cold day I took a trailing ride, Then tried my luck on the toboggan slide Nearly died . Am I stiff, am I lame, Will I ever again be the same? Turn on that Intervale moon Any old night, You ' ll find us riding Along in its pale yellow light. Bright stars will gleam in Its pale yellow beam, If it will shine, So, clouds, be gone, Fair weather, come on, Won ' t vou turn on that Intervale moon. 54 The Abbot Circle 19 3 Intervale Songs Tune: (I ' ve got the blues} I was a big girl at Abbot Thought I could do anything, Skating never bothered me And that ' s the reason I sing. I ' ve got the blues, black and blues, Those Intervale, winter-sports blues. I ' m stiff, I ' m sore, I wish I ' d practised more, I guess I got my dues. So, honey, take your exercise every day, Cause if you don ' t, you ' ll wish you had, I ' ll say I ' ve got the blues, black and blues, Those Intervale, winter-sports blues. Tune : (Sure 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, Thev 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, thev called it Intervale. 56 5 enwr Mid. • .• -1 U a Q Q si C Z w The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 Senior Middle Class OFFICERS FOR THE FIRST SEMESTER President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Margaret O ' Leary Audrie Griffiths Florence Norton Mary Jane Manny OFFICERS FOR THE SECOND SEMESTER President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Frances Scudder Faith Chipman Abby Castle Harriet Gregory SENIOR MIDDLER CLASS SONG Sing out, O Class of ' 31, Class of the royal blue, Sing to our Alma Mater Ever so loyal and true, Bound by the bonds of friendship, Our class we ' ll love and praise, Mem ' ries we ' ll cherish of Abbot, And of those happy days. 58 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 Class of J 931 Doris Allen Kathlrine Allen Mary Angus Mary Bacon Miriam Bass Ann Berry Metta Bettels Dorothy Bolton Katharine Brace Cora Budgell Emily Bullock Ruth Cann Nancy Carr Abby Castle Constance Chamberlin Elizabeth Chapin Faith Chipman Flora Collins Katharine Cook Clement Cruce Mary Elizabeth Dix Helen Dodge Frances Flory Katherine Flory Evelyn Folk Jane Goodell Barbara Graham Harriet Gregory Audrie Griffiths Carol Grosvenor Dorothy Hunt Kathryn Ingram Catherine Ireland Monica Keith Edith Kelliir Sylvia Larsen Virginia Lillard Mary Jane Manny Charlotte Marland Lisette Micoleau Elizabeth Moser Florence Norton Margaret O ' Leary Mary Owen Katharine Phelps Carol Pike Linda Rollins Eleanor Royce Marcia Rudd Gretchen Sawyer Frances Scudder Janet Simon Mary Smead Dorothy Stevenson Gertrud Van Peursem Dorothy Welsh Nanine Wheeler Marie Whitehill 59 The Abbot Circle 19 3 Carol O hush, ' tis the brush Of the cherubim winging, Tis the ecstacy Of the angels ' soft singing, That Mary hears; As with tender fears She kneels by the manger low.

The society is made up of girls who have won the " A ' s " by having at least 250 athletic points. These points are won by making the various athletic teams and by taking a required number of walks and rides. In addition to the athletic points, scholarship, school-spirit, general conduct, and posture are considered in the awarding of " A ' s " .

We all wore gym suits and it was a play day in every sense of the word. Instead of the two schools competing we were divided, irrespective of school, into color teams. In the morning we scattered to various fields and courts to participate in games and earn victory for our respective teams. After lunch we held a sing. After that there were the riding drill and relay races. Then the Rose team was announced the winner of the day. At the end of the day we sang farewell songs, and everyone agreed that our first plav day with Bradford had been a great success. Gargoyle -Griffin Day Next in importance to Bradford Dav is Gargoyle-Griffin Day. This year, because of the lack of competition on Bradford Plav Dav, it was especially anticipated, for we had stored up a great deal of keen competition spirit. The day started off in fine shape with the usual parade around the circle, culminating at the tennis courts. There we separated and watched either the tennis, croquet, clock-golf or archery tournament, all of which were plaved off simultaneously. Later a hockey game was staged. After lunch came the basketball for both the first and second teams, followed by the riding games. The dav ended with an informal tea in Davis Hall. It was really the very best Gargoyle-Griffin Dav we have ever had. 68 Organizations The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 Abbot Christian Association L 1 M. O ' Learv, Secretary D. Seller, Vice-President R.

Have we not all read this famous comedy of Shakespeare? There is Katherina, the curst, who is not to be subdued until the clever Petruchio woos and weds her in a week. He carries her off to his country home and there by scolding and fuming at the servants, scaring and giving Kate no rest, he thoroughly subdues her. Their last argument is on the road to her father ' s home when there is an argument as to whether the sun or moon is shining brightly and here Petruchio permanently fixes his superiority over Kate. At the banquet scene he shows how he has turned her into an obedient and loving wife. " A lusty wench, " said Petruchio when he laid eyes on the red-headed, fiery-eyed, bad-tempered Kate, who was so well personified by Pat Brewer. Barbara Lamson as Petruchio made a gallant, smiling but rough tamer. When these two burning fires met, they consumed and formed one. Lucile Leavitt played the part of Baptista, a dignified, all-commanding father, unable to manage his own daughter, Katherina. Bianca, his other daughter, was as gentle and sweet as the other was proud and cross. Bianca was apparently the more approachable of the two sisters, but her father would not let her marry until Kate had a husband. Among Bianca ' s suitors were: Kathie as Lucentio, who finally won her hand, Janice as Tranio, Lucentio ' s servant who changed clothes with his master and put on all the airs and graces and Connie as Hortensio and Gay as Gremio were both very humorous characters. The servants ran around in a bewildered fashion, adding color and life to the play. Occasionally there was music which likewise helped the atmosphere. The Senior Class is to be congratulated on its splendid interpretation of " The Taming of the Shrew " . We feel sure that they did justice to it under the steady, whole- hearted coaching which Mrs. Gray gave them. 89 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 ' THE TAMING OF THE SHREW " CAST OF CHARACTERS Ba-ptista, a Rich Gentleman of Padua Vincentio, a Gentleman of Pisa Lucentio, Son of Vincentio, in love with Bianca ....

Four people are on the stage of which only two are real; the other two are their inner selves who show the real attitudes of the two women towards each other. The two real selves always act politely and sweetly towards each other; while their inner selves, unnoticed by the real selves, say sharp words and light con- tinually. Each woman is jealous of the other. Margaret came for Hettie ' s gold but Hettie wants to win Margaret ' s husband. The play was very funny and immensely enjoyed. CAST OF CHARACTERS Harriet, a cultured woman Audrie Griffiths Hettie, her primitive self Elizabeth Brewer Margaret, a cultured woman Louise Atkinson Maggie, her primitive self Christine Hollands Scene: Harriet ' s Living Room Time: The Present " FIAT LUX " (LET THERE BE LIGHT) The other production, " Fiat Lux " was entirely different from " Overtones " and a difficult play to put over, although the actors did put it over. Azariah has lost all faith, because he believes that God has purposely taken away his children. He refused admittance to the carol singers. Nothing his friend, Father Ambrose, says can bring back his faith. Then he imagines that he sees his son, the soldier, and later his little, lame daughter enter, speak to him and leave happily for the help and shelter he has given to them. His old faith returns and he calls in the carol singers and they make merry on Christmas day. CAST OF CHARACTERS Azari ' m Barbara Lamson Father Ambrose ....

He does not be- lieve such a thing is possible, until a timid, loving couple come to his home to demand the bacon. After trying very hard he finally makes them quarrel, but he discovers that it is better to have quarreled and made up than never to have quarreled at all. The dialect and the costumes were both very quaint and pretty. CAST OF CHARACTERS A Country Squire .

All the customers demand something which is not in sight; but Peter sends each one away content by handing over the screen to Emma just what thev ask for. After the screen itself has been taken, Peter comes forth wrapped in a blanket. The play is indeed very funny and of course Emma accepts Peter. CAST OF CHARACTERS Emma .... Kitty .... Peter ....

As the satirist sees her: — Her hair is only a peroxide hue, Her painted smile, too, is a part; She ' s like a puppet in a show For she has a sawdust heart! Cologne Cathedral A silent drizzle fell from a soft black sky, smiled as it passed through the ray of a street lamp, and softly caressed each blade and flower in the cathedral park which lay half concealed in blue shadows. Beyond, veiled in rain-mist, like a dream or a vision rose the towers and spire of Cologne ' s great cathedral. The grace of the flutings and tall pointed arches, the deli- cate curve of each misty rose-window was faintly revealed by the city ' s dim light. The high-flung spires soared through the darkness, like a spirit ethereal, uplifting, unreal, or like supplicating arms reached upward in prayer. In such peace and beauty rare, The Infinite seemed hovering there.

" 101 The Abbot Circle 19 3 An Abbot Tragedy Once upon a time there dwelt in a Castle in the country of Flanders a very rich Lord. He was very Stout and a great Kidder for which he was much beloved bv all his Fellows. One morning he arose very early since he was going to Hunt on a nearbv H;ll. After a scanty breakfast of Bacon and a Cann of Rice, he ordered his chauffeur to bring out his Broun Dodge. However, he was told that that Can was out of commission; so he would have to go in the Rolls Royce. At last he set out with one of the Folk from a neighboring White Hill. At last thev came to the Place where they were going to Hunt. Thev had poor luck, and a young Bullock was the only game caught. Not long after thev met a Piper, who played so well that the Lord asked him to come to his Castle. Upon their arrival home, the Cook prepared a huge repast of Bass and Pike, and the Brewer brought on some Berry wine to drink with the cakes that the Baker had made. While sitting before the Cole fire, the Page, who was onlv a Child told the Lord that the Piper had fallen out of the Toner and landed with a great deal of Force. The Gardner discovered the Piper, who fell unto a barrel of Tarr and he was so weak that he had to be bound up with a Brace. The poor man did not survive the shock long and died while he was making his Will. Life Is Lil e That! I opened mv mouth to speak. What was the matter? Not a sound came — Had I lost rav voice? Oh ! If thev would wait just one minute and I could be of so much assistance ! I was afraid to speak out what I reallv thought. Why, oh why, couldn ' t I take the easv way out of a situation like this? But I couldn ' t — just couldn ' t — because it wasn ' t being done. Oh dear! the breakfast table did look so neat too! I made a desperate effort to say what I wanted to, but above the noise of the dining room my voice was so faint that not a soul turned to listen — even I could hardly hear it. In another minute it would be all over. Franticallv I jabbed the girl beside me and tried to point out what I meant. Too late — ! Her arm came down to her side and at the same time there was a very loud ringing sound as the tumbler tipped over spilling the water all over the neatly-laid table. All over! It was no use. I just couldn ' t remember how to say, " Look out " in Spanish. Life is like that! 102 The Abbot C i r c I 1 9 3 Song Hits from Abbot Bigger and Better than Ever I ' m a Dreamer Carry Me Back to Ole Virginie Moanin Low Ain ' t Misbehaving Piccolo Pete ....

However, the bell with which we are concerned is the Abbot bell. This bell wakes us up with its br-rr-r — tells us to dress, go to breakfast, clean our rooms, and depart for chapel. It guides our classes, study hours, silent times, recrea- tion periods and even our supposed to be peaceful sleeping hours. We are constantly reminded of our next dutv bv that never ceasing br-r-r ! What can be done to rid us from this torment? Some of the town loafers might well be emploved to stand in the various corridors of the school and quietly announce the hour. An instrument might be invented which would play a different tune for the various daily tasks; a lively rising song, a hymn for Chapel, a march for meal time, and a jazz-tune for recreation. Either of these two methods or many more might be used, but something must be done to save the youthful Abbot girls from its torment, and also so that in later life thev will be able to do different things without being reminded by the br-br-br-br-br-r of the Abbot Bell. 104 The Abbot Circle 19 3 Sturtevant Chamberlain h Itehill PErry MaNny Tarr SImon CaStle (A.) LawTon BasS Neither Borrower Nor Lender Be There is nothing like the gentle art of borrowing to add spice and variety to the usual monotony of boarding school life. When your roommate buys a new dress, never fail to borrow it from her at the earliest possible moment. She will profit by this in that you will show her dress off to the best possible advantage and she will be able to blame you for any spots which may result from unhappy circumstance. If you ' ve spent your entire allowance ahead of time and just don ' t know what to do — surelv someone will lend you a dollar — because everyone is anxious to help a poor girl in need. Perhaps you want to put your Friday evening caller in his place by suddenly becoming engaged to someone else. Who is that girl down the hall with the diamond solitaire? Then, of course, in the case of cold weather, a fur coat is an indispensable article of clothing. This you can doubtless obtain from your neighbor across the hall. If your galoshes don ' t match your roommate ' s probably will. In pursuing this quaint custom, you will gain the hearty goodwill and favor of evervone because of your open, unaffected manner.

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. 106 Advertisements Chalmers Murray Te C RAFTSMAN Studio 91 Newbury Street BOSTON Telephone Kejimore 4810 Our Official Photographer X IME proves institutions and products The manufacturers of Walk-Over Shoes have been in business since 1874.
