HOWE Just try to visualize any one of your acquaintances, male or female, occupying Mr. Howes very special niche in our school life: or rather, don ' t try — nobodv could. Endowing a large and refractory group of girls with musical intelligence and interest is a task requiring faith, hope and charity. Mr. Howe has all three and a very nice sense of humor to boot. He ' s not just someone to teach us hymns and school songs. There are a thousand-and-one occasions for which he is indispen- sable: Christmas, Easter, at Graduation time. . . .but why go on? Those who are part of the school realize how very much he means to us. Those who aren ' t can ' t begin to understand. The Class of 1933 in dedi- cating this book to him want to express some small measure of appreciation for the part he has played in our life at Abbot.

She ' s not too good or too beautiful but she certa ' nly is lovely to look at and of the variety that couldn ' t make an enemy even if she wanted to — which Bee doesn ' t. Also at the risk of embarrassing the afore- said, we will add that she ' s about one of the best sports in captivity. There, Bee! How does that make you feel?

However, in spite of the annoyance this may arouse in our sage elders we insist that it fits. Bucket never says an awful lot. but she ' s terrib ' y good-natured, which is ever so much more important. Being attractive and agreeable all in one person is an unbeatable combination! 17 The Abbot Circle 1933 CATHARINE SEBRING CAMPBELL " Katrine " " Kay " 32 Glen Ave.. Mt. Vernon. N. Y.

But we love her in spite of it all. Here ' s luck. Katrine! LOIS TARBELL CHAPMAN 67 Chester St.. Newton Highlands. Mass.

Who says she can ' t tear in from one of those divine picnics, at 5:58. put up the mail, and appear intact, if perturbed, at dinner? She also obliges the school by keeping the Choir and Fidelio altos on pitch. In a few years all mentally ailing or just declining friends and relatives can be candidates for Peg ' s psychiatric intentions. And wouldn ' t we all love having our morbid thoughts remedied by Peg ' s cheer- fulness? ROZILLA SNOW CHASE 15 Chamberlain Terrace, Waltham, Mass.

But these accomplishments by no means sum up her achievements, for none of us will forget her in the French and Senior plays, and, somehow, we are never surprised when she makes the Honor Roll.

One: brains (and not the hor- rible horn-rimmed, superior kind, either!) two: good looks, (don ' t you like curly blonde hair and brown eyes?) three: acting ability, (the Senior and Se- nior-Mid plays) four: popularity, (just ask anyone in Abbot or P. A.) and five: skill in athletics, (dem- onstrated on our pond and at Intervale). We can go on like this forever, but everyone — except Ann herself — knows all these things anyway. 20 1933 The Abbot Circle OLIVE MAE FRENCH " Punch " 125 Woodside Ave., Waterbury, Conn.

It belongs to Alice, the girl of the Honor Roll, who put the atmosphere of the sea and ships just as it appeals to her in her work for the Courant. And by the way, have you ever heard Jean, Peg, and Alice discuss at length the merits of Shakespeare from beneath the disguise of oranges, apples, and puns? (The awful word is out.) Well, let ' s drop that in say- ing — good luck at Swarthmore, Alice! 22 1933 The Abbot Circle LOUISE PICKETT McCLARY 17 Prospect Terr.. Malone, N. Y.

We leave Betty Weaver ' s wish-bones to Mary Flaherty just in case he doesn ' t come. We leave Margo Walker ' s monocle to Ann Place with which to watch for callers Friday night. We bequeath all our Intervale mufflers to Beverly Sutherland with which to quell her unseemly boisterousness. We leave our contract bridge scores to the new girls as intelligence tests. We leave all our letterless days to Evelyn Kleven. We leave our collective adipose tissues to Charles in hopes that they will be fondly cherished. We leave a pulley to Miss Moses with which to obtain her glasses from the fourth floor. We leave Alice Hill ' s appetite to Miss Friskin. We leave all our dangling participles, split infinitives, and mixed metaphors to Mr. T. S. Eliot in hope that Miss Chickering will thus come indirectly to appre- ciate us. We leave our eyebrow pluckers to Miss Bailey with which to root out vicious crime from our midst. We leave Star the bird. We leave Rosie Chase ' s gum with which to stick Star out of the dining room. We leave to Star our fancy collection of assorted mothballs. We leave Miitzi as a one-man entertainment committee. We leave all our heather for new dining-room centerpieces. We leave our finished jig-saw puzzles to beautify the day-scholars ' rooms. We leave all our cold cream to calm the troubled waters. We leave our class-book to the Faculty for arm rests during chapel. Lastly, we leave our dialect behind and we leave a great deal to your imagina- tions.

The play, " The Piper " , by Josephine Preston Peabody, is one of our favorite childhood stories come to life, and how we all enjoyed it! Everyone knows how the Piper charmed all the rats out of Hamelin. and then didn ' t get paid for it. Many have sympathized with him when he. for revenge, charmed all the children away by his fascinating music, even little Jan. the lame boy. In the play Barbara, a Hamelin girl, is in love with Michael, the Pipers friend. When she is being taken to a nunnery the Piper arrives just in time to save her by playing a tune which makes all the townspeople become a trifle demented. How- ever, everything ends happily: the children are all returned to their parents, and the only thing that is regretted is the disappearance of the Piper, who was com- missioned bv the " Lonelv Man " to be a wanderer over the earth. 83 The Abbot C i r c I 1 933 The Piper Michael-the-Sword-Eater Cheat-the-Devil Strolling Players .

" The Artist " , was artistic in every sense and it was very amusing to think a mump was at the bottom of it all. Mumps can be very uncomfortable, but these were all in fun. CHARACTERS He Mabel Savage She Anne Hurlburt WHEN THE WHIRLWIND BLOWS By Essex Dank Soon the curtain rose again, and we were in the midst of chaotic Russia.

A. D. S. knew just the play with which to turn u- back to normal. It was based on th° ridiculously true situation of the insulted " man about town " who has left his silk hat in the possession of the inciter and finds himself in the street with spats, cane — and no hat. He urges the passing tramp to get it for him. then the poet, and so forth. Alas, he is so misunderstood! CHARACTERS Caller .... atherine McDonald Laborer Margaret Walk,. Clerk .

So all the Neighbors scurry around to collect clothes and odds and ends for a surprise shower to be held that night when the boy was to arrive. Even grouchy Ezra forgot his corded wood long enough to produce a little chair (of whose or- iginal purpose we were a bit suspicious). Well, all was in readiness after many humorous incidents, when who should walk in but Mis ' Elsworth herself! Some other relative had taken the boy. Poor Mis ' Elsworth, she really had wanted him.

The new dialogue in our old fairy tale, reminiscent of A. A. Milne, was delightful, giving a livelier aspect to the story. Who knows? Was it merely after the drowsv after-lunch period when the Prince, stamping in. awoke the cabinet meeting which returned to its discussion of the installation of pumps, or was it the traditional one hundred year spell cast by the witch?

At first there was no hope of a moon pene- trating the thick, billowy, silver and grey-lined clouds that seemed hesitantly to threaten to kiss their shadows, which were making the almost-too-peaceful watei darker still. From the edging of these clouds we knew that there was a moon wait- ing behind them for an opportunitv to burst forth in her quiescent glorv. for the semi-halos trimming their fleecv vet compact masses shone with a pellucid, golden light. W e seemed to be watching one of natures quiet struggles, and the sea too appeared to be watching, reflecting faithfully, yet as if it were a dark mirror, the slow changes of the skv. For now the horizon grew darker, while the center of the celestial arc. almost directly over us. grew ever more shining while its gorgeous nebular mass seemed to part as if to make way for a queen. And a queen the moon was indeed, when she finallv presented her entire face to us. after having coquetted in a graceful and statelv manner from behind her screen. The now double rank of clouds receded about two steps more, leaving Her splendid, golden Majesty scintillating and bowing in a blue-black hall that set off her beautv to perfection. She seemed peacefullv and regallv to accept her triumph over the cruel clouds that had been depriving her of her just admiration, and to reward our waiting for her with even more splendor than it is her wont to bestow upon us. And while she was thus presiding over her court, we left her and her approaching shadowy host, before we should witness the sad yet beautiful eclipse of her smiling countenance. Catharine S. Campbell The Symphony A crash, and when its echoes died, a pause. A clear, high note rang through the quiet hall. And then a lilting harmony was heard. The sound grew greater, and new notes now filled The crowded hall of breathless listeners. A piquant, haunting melody made all Feel strongly, to the very depths of them. That life has mingled joys and sorrows too. The symphonv went on. It grew in tone And suddenly it stopped. A second ' s still. Then came applause, and then the spell was lost. Mary Elizabeth Birnham 88 19 33 The Abbot Circle Parting Hymn Father, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me; The changes that are sure to come : I do not fear to see; : But I ask Thee for a present mind Intent on pleasing Thee. I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles, : And to wipe the weeping eyes; : And a heart at leisure from itself, To sooth and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am, In whatso ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts : To keep and Cultivate; : And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life : While keeping at Thy side; : Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified.
