The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 What ' s in a Name In a sparselv populated corner of IRELAND was an old CASTLE. 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.
