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

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
