This is meant not in the ordin- ary sense of the word — the merry smile, the cordial word. The true definition of a friend is one who. aware of other people ' s failings, can still offer unbiased friend- ship; one who continues her loyalty and fine attitude toward others in their absence as well as their presence. Criticism from such a friend is sincere, and, if unfayor- able, deseryed. and therefore not resented. Add to this characteristic unfailing sympathy and the ability to make people respect as well as loye you, and there you ha e a friend almost too perfect to be true. As a class we have decided to dedicate this book to you because, to our minds, you represent what we all striye to be — a good friend.

We have noticed that those who try sincerely to express apprecia- tion have been actuated either by gratefulness, by esteem, or by af- fection. We find this to be a most noble custom worthy of our purpose and worth v of you. To you, then, we devote this page of appreciation in gratefulness for daily contact with you; in esteem, because you form a gloriously strong force, yet have continued to maintain feminine tenderness; and in affection, for no reason sufficiently tangible to be expressed, yet for reasons which are of all others the most weighty.

And her personality plus her vitality makes her one of the cutest girls in the class. Dottie is very serious and is forever asking questions which charm the faculty completely, and send us into stitches as the familiar " I don ' t see why? " comes out. Her ambition, we hear, is to become an actress, and from what we have seen of her acting, we would place her in stardom at Hollywood right away. And after all, Dottie, " why not?

How many times have you heard a violin trying its best to compete with one or two pianos and a vocal lesson in the Music Bay? 36 19 3 2 The Abbot Circle Class History The beginning of our famous class started five long years ago with the goodly number of six. Many were the wild tales told of us while we were in Sunset — throwing people into tubs of water was a common occurrence, and water fights were staged at least once a week. How big we felt when we had our first class meeting — a real organ- ized class at last! No longer were we the school babies! We were fortunate enough to be able to take part in the Centennial celebration — and what a celebration it was! The high light of our third year was our debut of the prom — but only as ushers. Of course when we started our Senior-Mid year we were allowed some of the privileges which are granted to the two upper classes. There was our exciting tea dance, the Senior prom, and our own banquet. But what can ever compare with our Senior year? We came back feeling the heavy responsibility of high and mighty Seniors. The year turned out to be filled not only with responsibility, but with unlimited pleasure. First there was the Senior picnic, then right after midyears we traveled North to Intervale — The Intervale of our dreams for four years. Passing over the lameness and bruises which we acquired there, we also found bacon-bats, flapjack parties, sleigh- rides, not to mention hikes into North Conway. The Senior play was a great success, surpassing all expectations, and the prom followed in its turn and was considered by one and all the best dance ever held. Graduation looms up as the great climax of five years ' work. We shall march down the aisle with our " ' little blue books " thinking not of what has passed, but what awaits us out in the wide world.

The very word makes anyone at Abbot who ever has the chance to go there sit up and listen! Going to Intervale for three days after the mid-year exams is the Seniors ' privilege at Abbot each year. Sometimes, just before we leave, some few girls think that perhaps they would rather not go. They usually do go finally (they are unluckv if they don ' t!) and would they have missed it? Just ask them and I can guarantee a very decisive " no " ! From the moment that we get on the train to go, until we get off when we come back to Abbot, excitement reigns everywhere and everybody is supremely happy. This vear we didn ' t think there would be much snow, but when the train drew into the Intervale station we knew that we would have plenty. In one day, in fact, almost six inches fell! As usual we began our fun by driving to the " Bellevue " in a huge sleigh drawn bv four horses. From that moment on we were busy at all times doing many and varied things. The skating, sleighing, skiing, tobogganing, " cuttering " , and trailing were all enjoved by everyone — especially by those who had never before been in a place so well suited to winter sports. We had the annual climb up Mount Surprise, and also the " flapjack " party in which there was a race to see who could eat the greatest number of " flapjacks " . Are we or aren ' t we surprised to find that Helen won the race? But then, it would never do to single poor Helen out! What about all the rest of us who had nothing less than steak and fried potatoes for breakfast? or two or three helpings of pancakes and sausages? We just couldn ' t help being hungry and, as far as I can see, no one so much as thought about calories — they just ate and ate! We were obliged to retire at eleven o ' clock and, after a busy day out in that famously invigorating mountain air, no one objected strenuously to going to bed. There is nothing much more thrilling than was the walk to North Conway after supper for a soda — especially when it was snowing hard and the world was covered by a thick white blanket. This sight, those of us who saw it would say, was one of our " big moments " . Another sight, never to be forgotten bv those who saw it, was the sunrise up over Mount Washington. Miss Bailey brought the attention of all of us to this magnificent picture, and the memory of it will remain with us always. We Seniors want everyone of you under-classmen to be sure and take advantage of these three days full of fun and overflowing with good cheer and surprises next vear. Don ' t miss the experience because it comes only " once in a life time. " 49 The Abbot Circle 19 3 2 A Day at Intervale 7:30 A.M. Someone rings a bell in the corridor. _ 31 A.M. Silence. 7:32 A.M.

We begin a long trail home — singing, shouting, telling stories of great adventure in the wilds. 9:00 P.M. One by one we are overcome by the vagrant yawn and retire . . 10:00 P.M. But not to bed! As a fitting close to a day at Intervale — and what a day! — we tell ghost stories. 11 :00 P.M. All lights are out and we talk ourselves to sleep. So ends a tvpical da at Intervale. Wouldn ' t vou like to have been there? 51 3E r t . k 1 9 M The Abbot C i r c I Intervale Songs (Tune: Sleepy time Dunn South ' ) P. ile moon shining on the fields of snow. Abbot girls singing soft and low, Needn ' t tell you so because you know It ' s Intervale we love. Cold winds blowing through the tall pine trees. Even tho ' it ' s cold we don ' t freeze, ' Cause we always do just as we please When we ' re at Intervale. Skiing, skating, sliding, sleighing and such, We love it all so much. Bacon bats, and flapjacks, steak, and the rest — Which do we love the best " Everything we do up here is great And we don ' t have to hesitate — Saying this we all cooperate It ' s Intervale we love! (Tune : Ooh That Kiss) Intervale, what a time we had there Though the ice was bad there In the mountain air Intervale, all the food we ' ve eaten Surely can ' t be beaten Of our weight beware ' Oh those rides when we ' re trailing behind a horse, Oh those slides were lots of fun of course ! Intervale is the big attraction Gives a swell reaction See vou there! 53 The Abbot Circle 19 3 2 Tune : A Little Bit of Heaven ' ) Sure a little bit of heaven Fell from out the sky one day, And it nestled in New Hampshire Not so many miles away; And when the angels found it Sure it looked so sweet and fair Thev said ' " Suppose we leave it For it looks so peaceful there. ' ' So they sprinkled it with sunshine Just to make the pine trees grow. They ' re the finest ones that can be found No matter where you go. And they placed the mountains round it Just to keep away the gale, And when they had it finished Sure thev called it Intervale. Way up north at Intervale We forget P. A. and Yale, That ' s because we ' ve so much else to do! Lots of muscle on the make We lick our chops and eat the steak Let this be a warning unto you! Wrapped in blankets ten feet deep That ' s the way we get our sleep Bedsocks, and hot-water bottles too.

Rolled-up shade to be fastened around forehead in the form of a becoming festoon, (old Gaelic word meaning " first one " — also probably the only one) When home- work is not prepared, subject pulls chain, releasing shade, which falls down and envelops subject. This reveals a large sign, " ABSENT " ; a casual glance by the teacher will satisfy her that we are not there, and probably never were. B. Small square in front of Miss Bailey ' s desk, equipped like a " sinking orchestra " . The floor automatically sinks every fifteen minutes. This is, of course, worked on the non-stagger system — you don ' t stagger out of the office, but merely sink through the floor in the appropriate manner. A green light hung directly above the sub- ject ' s head would provide the required ghastly effect. We suggest carrying your copy of Hamlet with you. C. Bed in the approved roller-towel fashion. Everv Saturday bed rotates. New bed comes into view. Snap opening provided every ten feet. Unsnap, get in, sleep, get out, snap. Due to the continuity of sheets, blankets, etc. bed never has to be made. These last a school year. D. Alphabet soup for Miss Chickering ' s spelling classes. A practical course, not only in spelling, not only in getting people to eat soup, but in actually getting them to notice what was in the soup! Example: Miss Chickering: Phyllis, how do you spell " mediaeval? " Phyllis: There ' s a carrot in the way, Miss Chickering. Thus all the bad spelling in the school could be blamed on Miss Butterfield. E. Dictaphone outside Miss Kelsey ' s office with a small resume of the day ' s little morals and epigrams, to be turned on after lunch to amuse those who are waiting outside. At regular intervals there should also be a still small voice whispering " come, come, come " so that the next in line could enter the office. By the time it came to be our turn to go in, we should all be Perfect Ladies! F. Did you ever think of the only real way to be assured of complete warmth on cold days? The method is so simple as to be positively childish, yet how easy it is for our great and ponderous brains to overlook such Simple Ways Out! Take the contents of one of those dry-hot-water bottles, swallow them (the contents), and then the next time you are cold, quickly run to the fountain and swallow two teaspoons of water, no more, no less; jump up and down twenty times, and there you are! From head to heels you are thoroughly warmed, and this is guaranteed to last at least two days. (N.B. : As we can readily see that this would put several people out of business we hesitate to suggest more than one or two people doing this.)

We tried out a new plan for entertainment this year. Instead of Bradford ' s spending a whole day at Abbot, the girls arrived at four o ' clock in the afternoon to stay until seven. Upon their arrival, we exchanged greetings as usual by songs, and then followed the rush for " our group " . Both Bradford and Abbot were divided into separate groups, each group having a certain color. The corresponding groups of the two schools at last found each other, were taken through the receiving line by Abbot group-leaders, and then up to the Seniors ' rooms. An orchestra which had been engaged for the afternoon was an unusual treat, so after much talking and showing the Bradford girls around the school, we all danced in the " rec " room until time for supper. Supper was served in McKeen Memorial and the orchestra supplied music between courses. At about seven we were very reluctant to have to say goodbye to our Bradford friends, but we hope that they enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did and will want to come again. Fall Field Day It was the day of the Harvard-Yale football game so most of the players were absent, but thev made up for it by sending telepathic messages of sympathy and good wishes! The Gargoyles and Griffins marched around the circle and around Draper Hall to the basketball field where we froze our extremities, although we were warmed in- wardly by excitement and anticipation. The Gargoyles won the first team game after an exciting contest between very well matched players. The Griffins retaliated by the winning the second team game. In fact, they won the hockey and everything else but a couple of the minor sports such as clock-golf and driving. The final score for the after- noon was 55-20 in favor of the Griffins. The Gargoyles, however, are teeming with hidden talent, which is bound to appear in spring sports if not in the fall ones! 66 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 2 ABBOT CHRISTIAN " ASSOCIATION " C.

Martinez Sierra On March 15, 1932, the Senior class presented the Cradle Song, a two-act plav bv G. Martinez Sierra. It is a very unusual play giving a pleasing glimpse into the life in the Convent. The first act opens on the nuns seated near the grille. It is the birthday of the Mother Prioress, and she has been receiving many presents. One of these presents turns out to be a baby. After much controversy, the old doctor who has been attending the nuns for years, decides to adopt the child if they will take care of it. The second act is 18 years later. The child has grown up and is leaving the Con- vent to be married. The young man she is to marry comes to the convent and is pre- sented to the nuns, who approve of him highly. The parting is sad because Teresa, the girl, is leaving, and, in doing so, is taking away with her all the joyousness with which her presence filled the convent. This play shows the great sense of mother-love felt even by the nuns who h.iw taken vows to renounce all earthly things. It is both touching and charming. 85 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 2 CHARACTERS Sister Joanna of the Cross Teresa The Prioress The icaress Mistress of the Novice: Sister Marcella Sister Maria Jesus Sister Sagrario Sister Inez Sister Tornera Antonio The Poet .

The first of these, " Dust of the Road " by Kenneth Sawyer Goodman, was a one act play based on one man ' s desire for money. Peter Steele has been entrusted with a certain amount of money for the son of an old friend. He has kept the money instead of giving it to the boy when he should have done so. It is Christmas Eve, and his conscience bothers him a great deal. A tramp enters who shows him how wrong he is. At the end Peter and his wife, Prudence, are quite ready and willing to give up the money, and lead a happy life after that because of it. Peter Steele Eunice Randall Prudence Steele Mary Elizabeth Moore An Old M n Mercedes Clos The Tramp Katharine Cook THURSDAY EVENING By Christopher Morley This is a delightful comedy with its setting in the kitchen at the home of Gordon and Laura Johns. It is the maid ' s night out and both the mothers-in-law are there for dinner. An argument ensues which is settled by the mothers-in-law. It is a sprightly play and in pleasant contrast to the " Dust of the Road. " CHARACTERS Gordon Johns Ann Dudiev Laura Dorothv Reinhart Mrs. Sheffield .... Margaret Morrill Mrs. Johns Dorothv Richardson 87 The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 2 Senior -Middle Plays HEARTS TO MEND By Harry A. Everstreet On January 19, 1932 the Senior-Mid class presented three plavs. The first of the series was " Hearts to Mend " , a Pierrot and Pierrette Comedy. The love of Pierrot and Pierrette had lessened and their hitherto happy life is endangered. However, a tinker, skilled in the art of mending hearts as well as pots and pans, made them happv once again. This plav was greatly dependent on the pantomime which was executed in a most pleasing manner. Pierrot Pierrette Tins-to-Mend-Man Ann Cole Alice Shultz Mariatta Tower THE VALIANT By Holsworthy Hall and Robert Middlemass The second play, " The Valiant, " is a story which everyone knows. It is just one more poignant proof of the power of filial love. The acting in this play was highly commendable and surpassed our highest expectations. We were all convinced that, in truth, the valiant taste of death but once. Warden Holt. Father Daly James Dyke Josephine Paris Dan ....

" It was quite the most hilarious bit of acting we have seen here in a long time. One will always remember its wit, dialect, and flying feathers.

The sky was covered with stars — some shining brightly, others seeming to twinkle in and out in the distance. The mast-head lights of many boats swayed silently back and forth, as they were rocked by the incoming tide. From the club-house on the nearby shore the faint music of an orchestra drifted to me over the water. I imagined myself dancing to that orchestra, and yet was glad that I was not. Lying on my back on the forward deck of the " Wanakah " , I was superbly happy; I was contented; I forgot my worries, and I lazily took notice of a beautiful night on the water. In the city it would be unbearably hot, but out here where I was a cool breeze fanned me at intervals — just enough to keep me cool. The moon was full — a very beautiful sight and, as I watched it, it seemed to sway back and forth in the heavens, when, in reality, it was the boat which rocked. The tide was almost full. I could hear the waves lapping up against the rocks on the shore, although where I was the water seemed almost still. A few ripples here and there were the only evidences that the tide was really coming in. I could hear voices — ex- cited and happy, I supposed — mingling with the distant music. There is nothing in the world like a silent evening on the water to carry distant sounds distinctly for long distances. I could almost understand what they were saying, but I soon tired of trying to listen and turned my attention to a small sailboat, a cat boat, which had suddenly loomed up beside me out of the darkness. I could hear only the ripple of the water as the waves lapped upon the bow, as the little boat glided silently through the water. A beautiful sail — so graceful and so silent ! Suddenly in the distance, around the cove, came the rhythmic chug-chug of an outboard motor. Nearer and nearer it came, until finally it scooted past me and as quickly passed into the darkness as the chug-chug became softer and softer. Finally I could hear it no more. Soon a large rather bulky looking rowboat came toward me. In it were three old grey-haired fishermen who were coming home after a whole day out in the cove. They were singing, although rather off-tune, to themselves. I think they were singing something about " Sweet Adeline " , although I could not dis- tinguish the words. I wondered how many fish they had caught, and how much patience they must have had to stay in the cove all day. They disappeared, and the plop-plop of the oars grew fainter. I lay dreaming for a while, thinking of nothing but my contented state of mind, of my complete isolation from a hurrying world, and of the wonderful though simple happenings about me. My attention was roused for a minute. From the boat next to mine came the plop-plop-gurgle of bottles being thrown into the water. I concluded that the crew on the " Mabe II " were enjoying themselves. At different times during 90 19 3 2 The Abbot Circle the evening I heard the same thing happen again. I hoped that they were enjoying themselves as much as I was, but I doubted it. I heard a distant fog horn which meant that the early morning would be foggy. A whiff of air brought me a delicious odor of tobacco smoke, and I remembered my father. He was happy, too, and I got up to join him before slipping under my white sheet to go to sleep on my bunk and dream yet more of the water and its silent boats. Elizabeth Palmer Two Loves QA Sonnet) Two loves have I and both are passing fair; And both I love with all my strength and heart. And yet I do not know how I can share Such force of love, and from them be apart. The one has eyes of ever-changing blue; Her hair is gently ruffled by the breeze; The moonlight tints her face with silver hue, As joyfullv she stands among the trees. My second love is almost always sad. Her voice so clear I love to hear her sing. But at the times when she is very glad, New hopes and inspirations she can bring. The first of these a shaded pool is she. My other love the e ' er inspiring sea. Georgia Thomson 91 Our Own Advertisement Section RACKETS All Kinds (TENXIS, ETC.)
