The two Aliens — Skip and Kay — make a great pair at dancing, and especially at tight rope walking. They never fail to fall off and let us laugh!

When she and her roommate get together something funny is bound to happen. Have you ever heard Kit speak Spanish?

She is ah ays willing to work, which perhaps is the secret of her success with the Gargovles. Whether her ability as a hockey plaver ; her persuasion as a debater, or her powers as ringmaster, Mary ' s success is undisputed. 13 T I D e Abbot Circle 19 3 1 MIRIAM BASS " Bni: r.

Any one who takes Senior Lit knows Bunny ' s abilitv to write. This quality has made her a valuable member of the Class Book Board. Have you ever been in the Senior parlor when Bunnv is in a teasing mood? METTA LOUISE BETTELS 3284 Main St., Bridgeport, Conn. Skidmore Two Years Chairman of Entertainment Committe ' 31 A.D.S. ' 31 A.D.S. Plays ' 31 Bible Recitations ' 30 Metta has been splendid as head of our Entertainment Com- mittee! She just seems to have an inexhaustible supply of original ideas for parties and dances. We know Metta loves dancing and we wish her great success if she chooses a dancing career. 14 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 CORA BUDGELL " Budge 1 1 " 4 Aldcn St., Danvers, Mass Garland School Two Years Advisory Board ' 31 Choir ' 31 Fidelio ' 31 Volley Ball Team ' 30 Spanish Play ' 31 Here comes the star pupil oi the Spanish Department. We wonder if in the future we shall hear of Cora in Spanish Opera or as Ambassadress to Spain. There is one thing, Cora — you are too quiet. Don ' t you think that you ought to explode more — a la psychology class. Cora, how tall was the narcissus sprout when you cut it off ' EMILY BULLOCK " Em " 340 South Main St., Andover, Mass.

Don ' t you know who that is? That is Em Bullock. Isn ' t she a corking actress? Wish you weren ' t college prep, Em, so that you could have starred in our Senior Play for us. We feel sure that sometime in the near future we shall hear of Em as the leading society ladv of the elite four hundred. 15 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 MURIEL RUTH CANN ' Rut bit " 268 Locust Ave., Freeport, L.I .

If you want someone to sing in a recital, in A.C.A., in Choir, or anywhere else just ask Ruth and she will certainly do it well. Why shouldn ' t she? She is President of Fidelio. Besides her beautiful voice Ruth has an engagement ring, another thing no one of us has. Here ' s good luck to you Ruth Remember us to Sewie. will VOU ' NANCY CARR " Nance " 63 Main St.. Bridgewater. Ma Smith Griffin Track Team ' 28. 2 Senior-Mid Plav ' 30 Draper Dramatics ' 30 Nancv made a successful stage debut in the Senior-Mid plavs as the querulous Italian woman, Mrs. Bonelli. In fact Nancv is quite a linguist, as Madame Craig can assure you. Nancv has long been an important member of our class and if she has a weakness — perhaps it is her faith in beauty creams.

Abbv will brighten your downcast spirits. Many a time have we looked over in the dining room and seen the whole table laughing uproariously while Abbv tells about some wild escapade. The good old days are gone for ever. Before, she used to help her sisters get ready for parries. Now it is Abbv who gives the latest information about night clubs here in the East ' And — we are quite sure that you didn ' t get your person- ality from a correspondence course!

Any time you want an art editor or a member of an ensemble, ask her. Besides that, she is Madame Craig ' s pride and joy as the most fluent French speaker. She can swing a hockey stick and a baseball bat effectively, too. Her good disposition is a saving factor in many an argument. FLORA COLLINS F Volcott Ave.. Andover. Mr Five Years ADS.

Or perhaps we should say as an actor, for it certainly is as a handsome young man — priest, squire, or professor — that we remember her best. Clem has an excusable weakness though — the honor ro! I !

She is also one of the two taking the music course, and has a very pretty voice, as we learned at the Day Scholars ' Enter- tainment. 19 The Abb o t C t r c 19 3 1 EVELYN FOLK " Ev " 75 Chestnut St., Andover, Mass.

We think of Chubby especially as Gargoyle song leader, or racing down the hockev field. But sometimes she has made us envious, too, with her fascinating tales of Exeter. 20 The Abbot C i r c I 19 11 HARRIET GREGORY " Harry " 224 Forest St., Winchester, Mass.

Two Years Fidelio ' 31 Q.E.D. " 31 Carol ' s one of the best sports of our class, as anyone can tell you. She is always ready for anything, even if there is danger of a joint falling out. Wherever Carol is you will hear shouts of laughter. That " haw-haw " of hers is enough to put anyone into hysterics. How will Q.E.D. ever get along without its " left-hand pounder " ' DOROTHY HUNT ' Dot ' 25 Pearl St., Whitman, Mass. Pembroke Two Years 1st Vice-President Student Government ' 31 Q.E.D. ' 31 Xorthrield ' 30 Fidelio ' 30, ' 31 Choir ' 31 Head of Proctors ' 31 Hiking Leader ' 31 Volley Ball Team ' 30 Abbot Birthday Committee ' 30 Dot is one of our musicians. She sings in Choir and Fidelio: and what would AC. A. do without her as an accompanist " - ' She also uses her mighty powers of persuasion, gained through Q.E.D., to instruct the proctors. How is it, Dot, that you have callers on the nights when the bovs on the hill are not allowed to come down? Dot is so good-natured and amusing that Room 36 is always a favorite meeting place. 22 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 CATHERINE IRELAND " C.itbie " 400 South Melcher St., Johnstown, N.

She certainly is a fine pianist and organist. Now we know wh he makes such an able President of Aeolian. No matter what the odd job — ushering, selling Xmas Tuberculosis seals, or collecting money — Cathie is always w illing to help. Too bad we didn ' t have more ice this winter.

She has enough school spirit and pep to supply the entire school. As President of A. C. A. Ginny has many painstaking duties, but she exe- cutes them all without complaint. She is an invaluable mem- ber of the hockev team and Abbot certainly will miss her next year. We have heard that Room 56 is interested in turtles. How about it?

She has held numerous positions testifying to her sense of responsibility. But when Mary Jane and Harriet get together, as they frequently do, we have discerned a gayer side to Mary Jane ' s nature. 24 r k Y) e Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Chester St Jackson College Fidelio ' 27, ' 29, ' 30 Senior-Mid Play ' 30 Spanish Play ' 31 Winter Sports Teams 31 CHARLOTTE MARLAND " Chare " Ballard Vale, Mass.

Everything she does- fr om English themes to math problems — is done carefully and neatly. Perhaps that explains Charlotte ' s beautiful play- ing on the violin.

A. A. She is one of the few people who can combine dream and reality success- fully. A long time ago I used to think Flo a quiet soul, but now I know differently. I am afraid it is Aud again who is upset- ting the laughing box. Have you ever noticed Flo ' s hair? No, is isn ' t a wig. It ' s really real, natural ringlets.

Why, it is just the natural result of a sunnv disposition and cheery sense of humor. That is why Peggy has fulfilled her position as President of Stu G so ablv. Her charms have not gone unrecognized by our friends on the hill either, as you know if you have been in the " rec " room on Friday night. 26 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 CAROL PIKE Care Mrs. May C.

And she even made song practices pleasant with that smile of hers. Hawaii sent a wonderful representative to Abbot when Carol came. I wonder what a certain little, vet effective, person will do when Carol is no longer around to make her life miserable. LINDA ROLLINS " Lin " 75 Church St., Winchester, Mass.

The muscle acquired in drumming must prove useful in tennis, too, as anyone knows who has seen her play. Marcia is one of our five-vear girls, too. Will you feel very lost next year?

And that ' s not the only thing, for she certainly sets us a good example. Besides Stu G, Courant, and playing hockey, her name frequently appears on the Honor Roll.

It is a magic word with a magic world behind it, one that we had heard of but never imagined as the white and perfect land we found. We began the moment we arrived with a sleigh ride to the " Bellevue " where we were given a, welcome. It didn ' t take us long to change into our ski-suits but it was a long time before we had exclaimed enough over our own and each other ' s novel out- fits. There was enough snowshoeing, skating, skiing, " cuttering " , trailing and what we called " tinpanning " to last us our whole three days. At night some of the more venturesome went to North Conway for a soda and a look around while others of us went skating, and one night there was a " flap-jack " partv! Our morning began with the never to be forgotten sight of the sun coming up over the mountains, throwing a pink glow over Mount Washington. Miss Bailey it was who introduced us to this novel sport of sun gazing and never before had we seen anything so inspiring. Then the most exciting climb up Mount Surprise on snow shoes with a bacon bat at the end of it in the " Wyehut " up in the woods. We couldn ' t get enough to eat or sing enough songs we were so happy. And the moon — Oh that moon! It was a full one and seemed, against the deep snow, a kind of special secret to be divulged only to the lucky Seniors of Abbot. Our last glimpse was of Mount Washington, glistening pure white with the sun just coming up as if to say, " Good morning, so sorry you are leaving " . But not our last glimpse, no, for Carol has it all, yards and yards of it in her mov- ing picture camera, from our train ride up, to the bus that got stuck in the snow by Abbot gate, and we all have it under the heading " Wonderful Memories of 1931 ' ' - 47 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Intervale Songs (Tune: I ' ve Got Rhythm) We went skating, We went skiing, We had great fun, Who could ask for anything more? We had pancakes, And had lots of aches. We had great fun, Who could ask for anything morer Trains and horses, Gains and losses, Black and blue marks, Lots of gav larks; We had moonlight And played at night; We had great fun, Who could ask for anything more? (Tune: Nobody ' s Sweetheart Now) Oh the Seniors went away For three days of play. What we did, where we went You ought to know bv the cards we sent. Snowshoed and skied and ate, You should have seen us skate! Private car, whole hotel; - Of all our joys we can not tell. No callers, still less mail And vet we adored Intervale! 48 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 (Tune: I ' m Yours ) Do you like to ski, And do you like to skate? If vou really do, Whv then, don ' t hesitate, You will find a place right near vou, Go to Intervale. Anyone can see Just why we loved it so. At night the moon looked down And bathed us in its glow. Everything was simply perfect, Up at Intervale. And if we look a little tired and weary, Please don ' t ask us whv. Memories will always linger And perhaps make us sigh— For we never can forget the fun we had; Thoughts of what we did Will make us very glad, And we ' ll always love our days back In old Intervale. (Tune : Blue Again) Blue again, ' cause we ' re home again, And we ' re oh so blue now we ' re home again, Got to buckle down to work again. Sad again, school again, After play we ' ve got to work again, That ' s why we ' re blue again, So blue. 49 o ' The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Impressions of Intervale A jagged line on the ice glistening in the soft light like a frozen, forgotten steel rail. Thick, impressive, lonelv pines almost panting in their effort to he upward; straining upward. The hauteur of a lofty mountain so far away as to seem mist, - startling in its very whiteness; a mirage. Echoes of raw, brilliant )azz sung to an orange colored moon and left on a stiffening wind to die.

The cloud changed shape and the ship was gone; It faded away with the wind. I pondered, " Was that the way of life? Was that to be my end? " Then another cloud went floating by, And as I watched it, more and more It took the shape of another ship, Far lovelier than that before. My heart leapt up; yes, that was the end Of all our earthly strife. The first ship signified Life and Death, The second, Eternal Life.

Things started well with singing and the usual rush to find " our girl. " Atter a few minutes in the girls ' rooms, wewent out for the various games. There were all sorts of things to do and every one did something. Fate must have been against us as it soon began to rain, making it necessarv to cut short the sports scheduled for the morning and to call off the afternoon events entirely. Lunch whic h was to be a barbe- que out of doors had to be eaten in the dining room in shifts. It tasted just as good ! We spent the afternoon in the gvm dancing, plaving bridge, and singing. In spite of the sudden change of plans evervone enjoyed herself and had a good time doing the unex- pected. Fall Field Day The spirit was keen on Gargoyle-Griffin Dav and a close score kept it so to the end. The Gargovles met the Griffins and paraded out to the tennis courts where a lively game was started. At the same time finals in the minor sports tournaments, croquet, golf, archery, deck tennis and ping pong were played off. We used the new driving net in golf. First and second teams in basketball showed their skill in good games. Both plavers and spectators were whole-heartedly enthusiastic. By this time the total score was a tie and each hockey team went out determined to settle the score in its own favor. The result was a cleanlv contested game in which the extra practices of the season made themselves evident. The final score of the day was 45-35 in favor of the Gargovles. In the afternoon the faculty met the teams at tea in the " rec " -room, and the same room was in the evening the scene of the awarding of numerals, " A ' s " , and chevrons, a fitting conclusion for a happy day. 64 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 1 Abbot Christian Association 1 F B wi 1 1 M Kf ) ■ I 1 il w 1 1 [ 7 J 1 1 C.

Its purpose is to bring to- gether those students who are interested in music. It is customary for the members to give a program in the Spring term before the entire school. During the past year the Society has studied the opera, the lives and works of some of the great composers, and has also practised ensemble playing. Miss Beatrice Ward, the faculty adviser, has done a great deal to help the Society in its work.

Society, founded in 1920, is chiefly a debating societv with the purpose of promoting interest in the study of current events. The societv judges the evening news which is given by the girls of English III, English IV, College English I and the One Year Girls. This year with Miss Rebekah Chickering as our very kind and helpful advisor, we have had several interesting debates. At our open meeting the question was " Whether the United States should join the League of Nations " and is one I ' m sure we shall never forget and which will also be a help to us in later life.

Barrie This love story was made unusually interesting by our two great actresses Miss Clement Cruce, who played the part of Professor Tom Goodwillie, and Miss Audrie Griffiths, who played the part of Lucy White, his secretary. Flora Collins played the part of Dr. Cousens and deserves honorable mention. Being the professor ' s friend and realizing that the professor is in love with Miss White, the doctor advises Goodwillie to leave his work and visit his sister at Tullochmaines. Contrary to all expectations, the professor leaves — with Miss White at his side. Many serious and amusing situa- tions follow before the professor finally realizes his love for Lucy. The second act opens in the picturesque wheat-fields at Tullochmaines. Evelvn Folk plaved the part of Miss Goodwillie who has been disappointed in love, and therefore tries to keep her brother from realizing his love. The Dowager, played by Harriet Gregory, imparts to Lucy a brilliant idea of hers to make the professor fall in love with her. Up to this point Lucy has not tried to make the professor declare his love for her, but now she decides to take the dowager ' s idea. The humorous side of the play was brought out bv Dorothy Stevenson, who was Effie, the professor ' s competent maid. Abby Castle as Pete, and Faith Chipman as Henders were Effie ' s two lovers. Marie Whitehill as Sir George, the Dowager ' s stepson, and Dorothy Welch as Lady Gilding, his wife, were also amusing characters. 89 The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 CHARACTERS Professor Tom Goodwillie Clement Cruce Loci White Audrie Griffiths Effie Dorothy Stevenson Miss Goodwillie Evelyn Folk Dr. Cosens Flora Collins Lady Gilding Dorothy Welch Sir George Gilding Marie Whitehill Dowager Lady Gilding Harriet Gregory Henders Faith Chipman Pete Abby Castle Maid Linda Rollins Dr. Yellowlees Katherine Allen Scenes Act I Professor ' s study in London Act II Wheat fields at Tullochmaines Act III Outside professor ' s home at Tullochmaines Coach Mrs. Bertha Morgan Gray Stage Manager Katherine Allen Scenery Mr. Scannell 9: The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Abbot Dramatic Society Plays THE BOY COMES HOME On December tenth the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two plays. " The Boy Comes Home " by A. A. Milne was a delightful comedy. Philip, the boy, returns from the war and immediately the action begins. He put the maid and red-haired, fiery- tempered cook right in their places by a few sharp words tinged with humor. He loves his sweet gentle aunt but fears his uncle with whom he must soon discuss his plans for the future. The uncle, after repeated pleadings from his wife not to be too harsh on the boy who may have a will of his own, falls asleep and dreams that his nephew comes in, listens to his plans and refuses to obey them. Uncle James tries to scare him into obey- ing but is finally made to submit to Philip at the point of a revolver. Still shaking and white from his nearness to death James wakes up only to find that it was a dream and that Philip is just entering the room after breakfasting and is quite meek and delighted to enter business with him. The play was well acted and contained many humorous situations. CHARACTERS Uncle James Aunt Emily Philip Mary (Parlour Maid) Mrs. Higgins (Cook) Flora Collins Audrie Griffiths Clement Cruce Linda Rollins Mary Angus THE WEDDING PRESENT By William Carson Bob Gordon, and his wife, Dot, have very recently returned from their honeymoon and when the scene opens they are trying to decide what Jim Dixon, a friend who is coming for dinner, gave them as a Wedding Present. Dot has lost the list on which she had written the people ' s names. She insists that he gave them a Corot that she has taken a fancy to and Bob is sure he gave them the fireless cooker. Many complications occur which are extremely funny and in the end Jim confesses that he got his sister to buy the present and so doesn ' t know himself what he gave them. It turns out to be an ugly cut glass dish which they all dislike.

Illsley On January the twentieth the Senior-Mid class presented three plays. " The Feast of the Holy Innocents " gives the audience a peep into the lives of two very pious middle-aged sisters. They want to go to the city to enjoy themselves but are afraid to tell each other so. Therefore they say that thev would like to attend the " Feast of the Holy Innocents " to be held at the citv church. They really can ' t make up their minds for thev can ' t afford it, when Mrs. Oberlv comes in, a typical country woman, and lends them the money. Even then they are in doubt but the sudden arrival of Mrs. Oman their citv friend, who insists that thev go back with her, puts an end to their worries and off they go. The parts were well acted and the play was very interesting. CHARACTERS Cornelia Milk Electa Milk . Mrs. Oman Mrs. Oberly Jenny. Helen Allen Dorothy Reinhart Ruth Tyler Dorothy Richardson Hilda L nde " THE LONDONDERRY AIR " Bv Rachel Field " The Londonderry Air " is a simple love story of a little country hired-out girl and a traveling peddler who plays the fiddle very well. The maiden, Rose-Martha, is betrothed to a slow, easy-going farmer boy, Hiram, who takes her very much for granted. She is working for the widow Boggs, Hiram ' s mother. She and her son have gone to a funeral and during their absence the peddler comes to the door, begs some of the cookies from Rose-Martha that she ' s cooking, and a pretty and sweet love scene follows which is interrupted by the widow and Hiram. Rose-Martha is to join the peddler when she hears his fiddle in the fields that night if she has decided to marry him. She tries to forget but her young heart craves love and she can ' t resist when she finally hears his fiddle so, casting cares to the wind she goes out into the twilight to him. CHARACTERS Rose-Martha The Peddler Widow Boggs Hiram 92 Katherine Cook Virginia Arnold Virginia Lawton Eunice Randall The Abbot Circle 1931 THE SHEPHERD IN THE DISTANCE " By Holland Hudson This play was entirely different from the others for it was all pantomime. The Princess sees, through a telescope, a shepherd and his goat dancing in the distance. She- decides to go to him and so hides her time until her guardians, the Vizar and Wazir, are asleep. Then she makes her escape. On the road she passes Ghurri-Wurri, a beggar, to whom she gives but a small gold piece. He seeks revenge by telling her guardians and leading them to her. Alight with the shepherd follows while she escapes on the goat. The shepherd is taken to the castle and put in chains. The princess and goat finally free hi m by a little scheme of the faithful old goat. The princess fascinates the guardians by her dancing and then poisons them while the goat frees her lover. And as in all fairy stories they were married and lived happily ever after. Every movement in the panto- mime was accompanied by the cymbals of the Maker of Sounds which added very much to the fairy-like atmosphere.

It stood on the edge of a MOORE, not far from the turn-PIKE. In days gone by a KING had lived there but now it was deserted. Children often came to the PLACE to HUNT for the ghost which they were sure must be CLOSE by. After a long HUNT they gathered in the big HALL to talk things over. One dav thev heard a CARR drive up and a voice sav, " TURNER in here. " A man in a BROWN suit knocked on the door which had a verv heavy BOLTON it. The frightened children let him in. He asked, " ' CANN vou tell me just where I am and HOWE I can find the nearest town? " They started to direct him but he interrupted them, " I have been lost all day with nothing to eat and I am very hungry. I am sure one of vou must be a good COOK. Couldn ' t you fix me up something? " The children were able to GRANT his request as they had caught some BASS which thev served with strips of BACON. While he ate he told them about himself. He was a WELCHman and a WEAVER by trade. He had come to IRELAND for a vacation. When his hosts told him about their ghost he took them up in the TOWER and pointing out a WHITEHILL in the distance said, " I have been told that there is a ghost in an old COLE mine over there. Why don ' t vou FOLK try to find it? " Thev agreed so readily that he could not help laughing. He added, " Will you WRIGHT me what luck you have? " Thev promised and he drove awav but not before he had distributed several NICHOLS. As soon as he was out of hearing the children began to talk about him. " Wasn ' t he a HOWELL? " exclaimed one. " Yes, " answered a second. " Who could he have been? " " Oh never mind that, do you think it WORTHwhile to visit the mine? " said the first. Thev decided that it was. Mary Bacox Breakfast First a bell, and then a scurry. Next a bath and then more hurrv. Here ' s one shoe, but where ' s the other? Hair won ' t do. Oh, what a bother! Down the hall with quickening feet, Heavens! They ' ve begun to eat. Harriet Gregory 96 The Abbot Circle I ' ) 3 I Tale of a Tub Always ask somebody to start your tub for you — never do it yourself, it ' s )ust not done; just call to anyone at the opposite end of the corridor, the corridor teachers en- joy hearing the girls having a good time. Now that vour tub is started, you have time to do a few of the little things that you have been putting off: write a letter, or file vour nails, or go visiting perhaps; you have plentv of time. Finally you decide to go up to see if the tub is anywhere near running over -it is ! Just sliding over the side is a thin stream of water. You stand in the middle of the room in glee. What fun! When Miss Butterfield arrives ask her to go play with the sail boats with you which you have made out of paper towels. Do anything to prevent her asking who did it and how much it is going to be. Don ' t bother to mop up the wet, just let it soak through down below; the faculty especially enjoy it down below on the first floor. Linda Rolling How to Act When Receiving Callers When you first hear the voices and foot steps of your callers on Friday nights outside of Draper Hall, it is then time to put on your evening gown and high heeled shoes. Of course there is little to be done as far as make-up goes, as vou have spent study hour in carefully applying powder, rouge, lipstick, and most important of all — eye-brow pencil! After your caller has been announced, go immediatelv to the drawing room and greet him. It is now up to your guest to decide the next step; that is, if he had rather sit in the McKeen Rooms and smoke than go dancing in the ball room where there is always a good orchestra. You should agree with his choice. In the course of the evening there are various things to do. For instance, during intermission one is sure to be highly entertained by the Abbot chorus girls who are exceptionally well trained in specialty dances. Also elaborate refreshments are served in the faculty parlor throughout the evening. Sometimes between dances it is pleasant to go out on the senior porch which has recently been refurnished and glassed in. If, however, you decide to go dancing or to one of the main Lawrence theatres, it is absolutely necessarv that everyone be back by one o ' clock. The facultv have con- sidered the strictness of this rule, and, although perhaps it is a bit old fashioned sounding, they think it best for the regulation to be strictly observed.
