19 3 2 The Abbot Circle The Senior Play THE CRADLE SONG " By G. 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

1 Q 3 2 The Abbot Circle Abbot Dramatic Society Plays DUST OF THE ROAD Bv Kenneth Sawyer GooDNf.vx On December 8, 1931, the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two plays. 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 ....
