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.

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.

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.

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. CHARACTERS Bob Gordon Dot Gordon James Dixon Mariette Whittemore Dorothy Stevenson Metta Bettclx 91

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. CHARACTERS The Princess Virginia Brown The Attendant The Shepherd Tut Wazir The Vizir . Ghurri-Wurri The Goat The Nubian Atossa Welles Anne Dudley Mariette Whittemore Mary Hyde Louise Wallburg Dorothy Moore Elizabeth Lathrop The Maker of Sounds Louise Porter Slaves of the Princess .
