itf sw THE CIRCLE 1935 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR ( LASS ABBOT ACADEMY AN DOVER, MASSACHUSETTS To Miss Carpenter Remembering, as rhe parting hour nears, The thousand little things you ' ve said and done Unconsciously to ease and smooth these vears, Spontaneous, but remembered every one, W e long with speaking thoughts but perverse tongue To thank you for them and for everv dav; But most deserved praise is never sung, And everv full heart finds no word to saw We will remember how vou smiled at us On meeting, all vour comforting way, Your gracious manner and — because we must — That lock of hair that alwavs went astray.

Michigan University Tivo Years Brilliant playing in hockey, good looks, enviable wardrobe, to say nothing of such things as good- nature, and general likability! Divested of these, we find Pri is still intangible. Perhaps that ' s a characteristic of Michigan. Anyway, we want some more from the same place.

Two Years There is an expression, " Tis nice to be natural when one is naturally nice. " Example — a girl named Doris who bounces into your pathway with a loud " Hi, " and a laugh that sort of bubbles forth from a smile between two dimples. The " Cheerful Cherub " has never been more truly personified. Senior-Mid Plav ' 34 Q. E. D.

Is it because someone does not appreciate those lovely eyes, Mickey?

Imagine fly away blonde hair, black eyebrows, blue eves, and a cute profile. May we also mention that she has a gorgeous figure and a sunny personality. And there must be something about Griffin captains that makes the lads flock round, even though they never get their fill. Varsity Basketball Team ' 34, ' 35 Numerals ' 34 A.D.S.

She ' s got dimples and a devilish expression; she makes bad puns and also the Honor Roll. You raav have heard her operatic soprano making Studv Hall re- sound as from a steam whistle.

Com el I Two Years " Oh, dear, I just know I flunked that Algebra test! " And Claire, giving us all a gloomv look, collapses feebly on the couch of the senior parlor. All this, my friends, makes us extremelv annoved, because Claire is very rarely known to be defeated in a mathematical boxing bout, or, we might add, in anything else she happens to go after. And put- ting two and two together (apropos of algebra) we wager right now that without benefit of anv or all of those scrumptious cars, Claire of the golden head is going to get somewhere. Day Scholars Entertainment Committee ' 34 ANN CRAWFORD CUTLER " Annie " " The Shining Light " Abbot Street, Andover, Mass. Vassar Five Years If vou hear a shriek of laughter anvwhere around, it ' s probablv the result of one of Annie ' s witty remarks (not so the puns). If vou see someone being enthusiasticallv patted on the back, she ' s probablv just gotten on the honor roll with a 99 average, or starred in a play or written a swell story for Courant. All violent discussions, and libelous nicknames are directlv traceable to the same source. And it ' s also a known fact that she ' s universallv beloved.

Vernon Street, Cambridge, Mass. Wellesley Four Years For one small person, Jane certainly is a pillar of strength. But we shouldn ' t be so literal. Jane is the ideal sort to have backing a class for four years in more ways than one. Her playing at recitals, her prompt attendance at hockey and fun at Fidelio can hardly be easily forgotten. A gifted raconteuse, she has beguiled us with many tales of her near and dear. By the way. Jane, when are we going to meet your brother? Senior Class Treasurer ' 35 Fidelio ' 33. ' 34, ' 35 Q.E.D.

Smith Two Years We have wondered for a long time why Phil doesn ' t provide herself with some Chinese nail-protectors, for no Mandarin of any dynasty could have boasted J J . such long and tapering appendages. In fact, she seems to stress the " unusual " motif — noticeable at times in French. ( " For French of Parys was to here unknowe. " ) And we mustn ' t forget that Phil is likewise an accomplished dancer and a brilliant hockey plaver to boot. What will the Griffin for- ward line do without her next year? We dread to think.

" Impossible! " cries the gentleman on the left. But if said person will kindly come forward, we ' d love to have him meet Bunny, who fits this description to perfection.

But don ' t be misled; there are delightful quirks of originality beneath that imposing braid. And music! It will be no surprise to us to hear that Zette is giving concerts all over the world about six years from now. Her singing has charmed us in the few recitals when we have been privileged to hear it and we predict a successful future in the years to come.

Five Years " Sugar ' n spice, ' N everything nice, That ' s what little irls are made of. " We hate to borrow from Mother Goose, but the verse is just right, even to " little girl. " Something the verse doesn ' t tell you about Fran is the regu- larity with which her stories appear in the Cottrant, and that kitten smile. Evervone at Abbot, not to mention P.

There are those who claim that laughing gas is less effective.) She ' s the perfect all-round girl with the art of dispelling all kinds of gloom — just the sort of person to whom we wish all kinds of luck (not that it ' s necessarv!) and to whom we are awfully sorry to say good-bye.

Who will ever forget those grins of hysteri- cal joy on Claire ' s face at the latest sally of Dossy, her aide-de-camp? Or that original(??) dance step, executed in the senior parlor to the slight detriment of floor and carpet 3 Claire also has a sly, oh most sly sense of humor all her own, that various of us who are on the " inside " have come to appreciate.

We ' re certainly going to miss Jean next year, but the question is will Jean miss us?

But even if, mv friends, such se- crets are not for us, it would not require the powers of a Sherlock Holmes to realize that blond curls, lovely coloring, and a bubbling laugh are the stuff that popularity is made of. even when not seasoned, as thev are in Ruthie ' s case, by a liberal sprinkling of intelligence.

We also have great admiration for Alice ' s cleverness at the piano, and we would rather hear her play a Brahms waltz than almost anvbodv we know.

We all look upon Intervale as the great exposition of Dossy ' s quaint humor and musical ability, just in case you didn ' t happen to know that she plays everything from Beethoven ' s Moonlight Sonata to Gershwin ' s Rhapsody in Blue. Yes, indeed we venture to say that in this respect Dossy will continue to make a " play " for attention.

She ' s noted for the queerest mixture of things, such as athletics (some javelin thrower), brains (no comment nec- essary), obstinacy (just try and argue with her), and plenty of pestiferousness (watch your hat).

She has the most delightful whimsi- cality, and a Puckish sense of humor that surprises you at every turn. No dull moments with Margit! She has a way, too, of making people feel like potential geniuses, which is reallv one of the finer arts of life.

For this, it happened, was the night The faculty ' d decided To talk of seniors and their ways And what girls should be chided. It was Miss Bailey who arrived To ope the judgment hall. And after her each teacher came, Assembling one and all. Miss Comegys came loping in, And Madame in her booties, Miss B. with l ' Illustration, And Duncie from her duties. Miss Bean was there with H. Belloc ' s Life of King Charlie One. Miss Grimes and good Miss Carpenter, Her daily dozen done. Then came the Misses Chickering From Van der Stucken ' s lecture, And all wore faces graye and sad, As you can well conjecture. " I think that alphabetically We ' ll bring up each girl ' s case. You all agree? " Miss Bailey said, And glanced at every face. " Miss Abbot is the foremost then. W hat are her misdemeanors? Now speak up every teacher plea c e W ho in some class has seen her. " Most every one swore Pri was fine, And there was small contention. But Chickie shook her winged hat, " She doesn ' t pay attention! " 36 " This must be fixed, " Miss Bailey cried, Bur passed on to another. And Mick and Dossy Anderson Were found to be no bother. The same was true of Phyllis Brown, ho shone in mathematics, And stood the foremost of the group Of Algebra fanatics. " And what of Katie Burns? " was asked, And up spoke good Miss Baker. " She asks so many questions that Sometimes I ' d like to shake her. " " Well Helen Cary is the next. " Miss Baker beamed her pleasure. " Her German accent is a joy I cannot hope to measure! " When Tubbv C. and good ol ' Coop And Claire had all had praise, " Now what, " Miss Bailey said, " of Ann? Let ' s hear what each one savs. " Then Chickie smirked, Miss Baker beamed, Miss Comegys grinned her pleasure, And all agreed with one accord That Annie was a treasure. " And what of Jane? " Miss Bailey cried. Miss Baker took the floor. " If she would learn Tl est ' and ' C ' est, ' I ' d ask for nothing more. " Of ' Laine and Jerry, Sue and Bun They spoke with approbation, But fought on whom El would perform Her first great operation. Next Lizzie K. and Frannie Mac And Doris More and Pat Were warmly praised by everyone, And that was all of that. " But Lucia, " Chickie said, " has used Such great big words just lately, I find to my embarrassment My Webster helps me greatly. " 37 Claire Oppenheim and Jean and Ruth Were voted swell dav scholars, And everybody spoke with awe Of Ellen ' s many callers. They all agreed that Alice ' s love Of music was just sweet, And Dossv ' s everlasting doze Was certainly a feat. Then Scudder ' s laugh was criticized, And Shirley ' s niceness praised, But, when our Margit was brought up, The very roof was raised. " She drew us all, " they wailed aloud, " In rompers childishly, And put us in the class book thus, Alas for dignity! " They all praised Towse ' s sportmanship, And couldn ' t help but feel It would be swell to spend their lives In Araby with Cile. And, when at last the Court broke up, ' Twas voted that they would Give every girl her ring, and thus Get rid of her for good. 38 The Awful Truth for Seniors Name P. Abbot D. Anderson M. Barlow P.

The one is smooth, a dappled lawn. The buildings stand around— White-pillared Abbot, long McKeen, And Draper, ivy-gowned. The other circle, larger still, Is one of friends so dear, Who, warm and true, will closer grow With every passing year. Lucia Nunez Tree Song Poets sing of loveliness, Forests greenly cool, Why has vet no poet come Abbot to extol? Charm of sylvan grove have we, Lofty aisles of pine. Sun-enchanted meadows ours, Glad hearts to enshrine. Where our hearts must e ' er remain We will plant our tree. Ever thoughts of it will wake Tender memorv. Ann Cutler 45 Intervale CAVIAR TO THE GENERAL But look, the morn, in russet flannels clad, Peeps out the side of yonder Johnny door. Wake we our neighbors up; but by my advice Let us impart what we have seen tonight To no one. But for this, I could a tale Unfold, whose slightest word would freeze thv young Blood. For sleeping in mine comfy bed, Mv custom always in the night, upon Mv slumbrous hour mv roommate stole, With juice of cursed ice within a glass, And in the gapings of my night-shirt poured This leperous distilment. Something too much Of this! Let us to breakfast. Thrift, thrift, Horatio, is forgotten, since steak and fried Pancakes do warmly furnish forth The breakfast table. And later, " Oh, That this too, too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into the perfect Figure. " Then under this most excellent Canopy, the air, look vou, this brave o ' erhanging Firmament we shall ski. We pause upon Yon sterile promontorv and ponder. " To ski or not to ski; that is the question. Whether ' tis nobler in a snowdrift to suffer The chills and drippings of outrageous icicles, Or to take weight upon our ski-poles And m arising break them. Ah! this is The very ecstasv of love of skiing, Whose violent properties upsets itself And us, and leads the legs to desperate 46 Undertakings. Oh, my prophetic soul! I ' m down again! ' ' The air bites shrewdly. It Is a nipping and an eager air. What hour now? I think it lacks of twelve. Indeed it now Draws nigh the season wherein the stomach Is wont to warble unmelodiouslv. Less art, more matter! . . . After dinner soliloquy: " What is man (or Abbot girl for that matter) That his chief good and market of his time Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more! Now whether it be natural otiosity or some Craven scruple of thinking too precisely On the two-mile walk to North Conway, A thought which quartered hath but one part Healthv exercise and three parts aching muscles, I know not. Shall we expose what is mortal And unsure to all that skates, and ice, and Other perils dare, even for a Viennese Waltz? " And still we go. (Fell down her snowy trophies And herself onto the heartless ice.) The night Draws on apace. My neighbors ' spirit in arms, I doubt some foul play. There ' s beds awry, And my two school-fellows, whom I will trust As adders fanged, thev wear suspicious mien. Let it work, for ' tis sport to have The piebedmaker hoist with his own petar. An ' t shall go hard, but I will delve one yard Below their blankets and there deposit Midst the snowy sheets an icy lump, that Swift as quicksilver it courses through the natural Gates and alleys of the sheet. Pandemonium reigns, And in its midst, the clock then beating one, " Rest, rest, perturbed spirits! " quoth Miss Bailev. The rest is silence. 47 Intervale Song (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, They said, " Suppose we leave it, For it looks so peaceful there. ' ' So thev 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 thev had it finished, Sure thev called it Intervale. 49 Intervale Songs Intervale where everyone is gay, Lots of fun throughout the live-long day, Skiing, skating, sleighs, toboggans, too, Lots of food to eat, lots of things to do, We broke a trail up over Mount Surprise, We ' ve had our share of heavy exercise, We ' ll always cherish happy memories Of dear old Intervale. (Tune: Walking in a Winter Wonderland) We have skied, we have skated, We ' ve acquired lots of muscle, We ' re spotted black and blue, But we ' re here to say to you Just wait until you get to Intervale. We bumped into the trees upon the mountains, We fell into the snow drifts down below, We froze our feet and then we froze our noses, But still we sav to you we ' re fond of snow. Repeat Chorus: We have skied, we have skated . . . 51 The Senior Middle Class Song Onward still and upward Thirtv-six will aim, Striving for the highest Led bv Abbot ' s name. Higher ever higher Will our banners rise, Till our crimson colors Mount up to the skies, And we ' ve kept the standards Abbot glorifies. 54 Senior Middle Class Colors — Red and White OFFICERS— First Half President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Miriam Adam-, Sally Burns Charlotte Dane Anne-Laurenci: Donci Mary Dooley Mildred Eastlack Georgeanna Gabler Miriam Hamilton Priscilla Hartman Lucy Hawkes Clara Holland OFFICERS— Second Half Martha Howl- Frances Mahoney Priscilla Mailey Marion Mooney Helen Marie O ' Brien Martha Elizabeth R wsom Ros Mil R appoport Barbara Reinhart Jane Rk i I i inor Robinson Caroline Rockwi i i Anne-Laurence Dodge Georgeanna Gabeler Elinor Robinson Eleanor Wells Barbara Reinhart Lucy Hawkes Mary Dooley Elizabeth Sargent Anne Russell Elizabeth Sargent Sally Scates Patricia Smith Pauline Spear ( ROL StII.IAYI I I Mary Swan Mary Trafton Eleanor Wells Ruth Wi inc.

II k The Senior Play " DEAR BRUTUS " By Sir James Matthew Barrie Everyone is probablv more or less fond of Barrie, but the witchery and charm of his " Dear Brutus, " must surelv linger in our memories as one of the most delightful events of the year. The acting, the dialogue, the entire atmosphere caught and en- chanted us. The idea of midsummer ' s eve with its strange traditions and mvsterious happenings; the odd little man, the last of Merrie England, is irresistible. Secretly we should rather like to venture into the Enchanted Wood, if only to see what we Might Have Been. 80 DEAR BRUTUS A Comedy in Three Acts ' The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings. " — Shakespeare CHARACTERS Mr. Dearth Mrs. Dearth Mr. Purdie Mrs. Purdie Mr. Coade Mrs. Coade Lob Matey . Joanna Trout Lady Caroline Margaret Ann Cutler Anne Hurlburt Elizabeth Murphy Margie Thony Helen Tower Alice Cooper Jean Palmer Katharine Scudder . Patricia Noonan Ruth Pratt Frances McTernen synopsis of scenes Act I. Lob ' s House Act II. The Wood Act III. Same as Act I Somewhere in the north of England there is a legend that once every year on Midsummer Night, a strange forest appears, and that those who go into it will have, for a few hours, the life they might have lived, if, at some crucial time in their past, they had chosen the other turning instead of the one they did. A queer old Puck of a man who lives in this region conceives the idea of inviting some guests to his house at just this time of year, and seeing what happens when this second chance is given to them in the enchanted wood. And not only does this old man Lob gratify his whimsical curiosity, but those who witness the play are per- mitted to look on as well, and to see each character as he MIGHT HAVE BEEN, and then to see his return to what he reallv is.

Mr. Tyler 81 THREE PILLS IN A BOTTLE By Rachel Lyman Field Tony in " Three Pills in a Bottle " is just the sort of charming, imaginative, old- fashioned child whom everyone is fond of, and we all experienced with him a real pleasure in meeting the souls of those everyday people. The fine acting of the entire cast made the fanciful but brief experience realistic for the audience. CHARACTERS Tony Sims .... The Widow Sims, his Mother A Middle-Aged Gentleman His Soul A Scissors Grinder His Soul A Scrub Woman Her Soul Carol Stillwell Barbara Reinhart Priscilla Mailey Frances Mahoney Priscilla Hartman Sally Scates Ruth Wittig Jane Rice CATHERINE PARR or Alexander s Horse By Maurice Baring From the minute the curtains drew apart to show Henry VIII, English monarch, posing a knife on his egg, the breakfast room was electrically charged. Rich argument " Alexander ' s horse was white — no, black! " reached a crisis when the lovely blond page took execution orders. How Catherine escaped we don ' t quite know — a splendid glimpse of sovereigns on high domestic seas — and lavender tights. CHARACTERS King Henry VIII Catherine Parr A Page Anne Dodge Rosalie Rappoport Elinor Robinson 82 ROSALIND By J. M. Barrie " Rosalind " is one of those engrossing plays of mistaken identity, though it holds no element of mvstery for the audience. The smallness of its cast made every character necessarily outstanding, and the three principals rose to the occasion with excellent performances. CHARACTERS Dame Quickly Mrs. Page . Charles Anne Russell Georgeanna Gabeler Caroline Rockwell SPREADING THE NEWS By Lady Gregory Lady Gregory ' s " Spreading the News " proved to be a jolly Irish comedy with all the brogue and action and gay costumes that such a setting should have. The vil- lage folk were made very vivid by several bits of fine character acting.

Stage Manager Scenery Bertha Morgan Gray Mary Swan Mr. Tyler 83 Hamlet and Eggs A hush lav over all the class; No breathing stirred the air, And then the calm was broken by The creaking of a chair. We sat and looked with hollow eves Where Chickie kept her station. " Yes, girls, " she said, " I ' m sure ' twill be A nice examination. Tomorrow vou will come at five — The C. P. Senior Classes — Prepared to take an oral test, I hope that each one passes. We will recite respectivelv — Priscilla, pay attention — Upon the works we ' ve read this vear, But what I need not mention. " What awful visions filled our minds, And made us cringe and cower! For sure on " Hamlet " and the " Ag " We ' d spent full manv an hour. But when the bell had tolled the hour When we were meant to meet, Both crammed and empty, bright and dumb, Each girl was in her seat. And Chickie prancing to her desk Could smack her lips with pleasure. " We ' ll start on ' Hamlet ' first, " she said, " He ' s really such a treasure! Now, will you tell me, Eleanor, Why Hamlet acted mad? " " Oh, ves, " said Ellie, bright with pride, " The truth is that he had A common ailment of the mind, Cyclothvmia — the same. It is a form of psychosis. The svmptoms I can name. " " Oh, pray don ' t bother, " Chickie said; " This class is as a rule Conducted to teach literature; ' Tis not a doctor ' s school. 86 But let ' s return to where we stopped, And Ann, I ' m sure, can sav Why Hamlet jumped into the grave On ' Phelia ' s burial day. " " I ' ve often wondered why myself, " Said Annie, deep in thought. " He might have hurt an arm or leg, Or got his doublet caught. But if he ' d onlv used his head, I ' m sure it ' s safe to say He would have used a glider, and Gone down an easv way. " " You disappoint me, Ann, indeed! " Poor baffled Chickie cried, " But, Lucia, tell me how the king, The queen, and Hamlet died. " But Lucia, simpering, demurred, And, maiden coy, replied, " The Andover mother ' s darling girl Knows not life ' s sordid side. " So Chickie, puzzled, turned to Scud, And asked her pleadingly, But heartless Scudder onlv cried, " HAW! HAW! HAW! Don ' t ask me! " " Why then perhaps, " said Chickie now, " Cathleen will try and say Whv Hamlet spurned Ophelia ' s love Within the hall that day. " " I ' m sure I cannot answer why, " Said Kate contemptuously, " Love is a lot of rot, I think, And men especiallv. " " Then, Cecile, will you tell me now, — And tell me quickly please — Where Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Took Hamlet overseas? " And Cecile, dozing there, did not So much as raise her head, But yawned and mumbled ' neath her breath, " Arabia, " she said. Poor Chickie, swooning in her chair, Was limp with indignation, " This will not do at all, " she said, " I ' ll ask just one more question. 87 " So, Doris, will vou tell me why Upon that fatal night Our Hamlet met the ghost, and got Himself in such a plight? " And Dossv, wakened from a nap, Spoke with a drowsv head, " Because he hadn ' t sense enough To be at home in bed. " " Ker-plunk! " reechoed thu the room The noise of Chickie ' s fall. And Ellie rushed out hurriedly An ambulance to call. But Chickie, ere they bore her off, Revived enough to saw " What would mv friend, T. S., have said, Had he been here todav? " A Write -up to End Write-ups PATTY POLLYANNA PARAGON " Precious " Foul Feathers Corners, Idaho At Home Seven Years (Four to Six on Friday ) So much could be said about Pattv that we hardlv know where to begin. Pattv is one of those restful people who bubbles her way through life. Besides being an ardent athlete, she is a faithful friend. W ho is it whose sweet smile, winning ways, dancing dimple, and pleasing personality will linger fondly in our memories? Our Patty of course! And her daintv dresses and ethereal bonnets are the envy of us all. Here ' s bushels of love and kisses to one of our number who will go far. (Away, we hope.) P. S.

A DARLING girl stands on the steps of the CHAPPELL. The Villain named Gill HAWKES his horn, and the imPRUDDEN girl PLUNKETT herself beside him. With the GAGE reading sixty, they THONYs out of the circle while Miss Bailey cries, " No MORE of that, NEVINS DUNCAN my DAWES again. ' ' With only a GALLON of gas left, the villain sees the SARGENT and gets COLE feet. So he CARYs the girl off to some BROWN BARNES like a PECK of potatoes. " DOUCET down while I FITCH you some RICE, " he says. " WAITE, I ' ll MCTERNEN JOOST a minute. " " Get thee hence, BAIN of my existence, I disDANE it, I ' ve just EATON, " quoth she. " Do not MADDEN me, PRATT, " he says, taking a.PAGE for the RANSOM note. She was DOOLEY impres- sed, and pleaded, " Have a HARTMAN, SPEAR me, SPEAR me! " Then he HEALD her close, saying, " TOOHEY or don ' t we? " as he GABELER a HOTCHKISS. " That BURNS me up, " says she, WARDing him off. There is a RUSSELL at the window. " I SAWYER PETTENGILL, " cries HENRY, the hero, and he shoots the villain WRIGHT away. " LEE me have a LOOK at you, MAHONEY, are you STILLWELL? " says he. " HuRAE, come INMAN, " she exclaims, " I ' ve been enJORDAN myself. So off they SWINT together to SCATES on the EASTLACK.
