The Abbot Circle 19 3 If Seniors Were to T un Loose " It is a serious thought of mine, " Miss Bailey said one day, " To let you seniors all run loose Yet still at Abbot stay. To eat your meals or not to eat, This I would leave to you, To wear high heels at all events Would be your own taboo. If you should choose to take a walk At midnight or at noon To welcome callers any time ' Good luck to you! ' I ' d croon. In case some kind-hearted soul Bequeathed you a victrola I should not at all object To occasional strains of " Nola " . And then a radio, my girls, Might bring you peace of mind Might cause you bigger and better marks I think this you would find. But Alack! Alas! I have not thought That by this great addition To the welfare of vour class We would oppose tradition. " 101
