Class History The class of 1936 has always had to struggle to make itself heard, especially in the line of Christmas verses. There are only four of the people in the class who started it off on its course at Abbot. Now in the Senior year, our numbers have grown but we are still a small and, let ' s say, select group. The class ' s Prep, Junior and Junior-Mid years, chief characteristic was, of course, to impress people that we weren ' t the babies we were supposed to be. It was in the Senior-Mid year that we began to come into our element. Besides such major incidents as the Tea Dance, and being able to go to the Prom, it was full of nice little things like getting our class sweaters. You can ' t quite describe the Senior year. It is rather satisfying, though, to be told that you are responsible for setting good standards for the rest of the school. It gives one an important feeling. Things that we had waited for so long, like Intervale, really came and were not disappoint- ing. The happiness of Intervale and the time when Senior rings are gained come only once in our life. Our class has not done anything startingly different from other classes, but it is the people in the class, who each and everyone will make it different from the many other classes. There will be only one Annie Dodge, with her side-splitting stories of her family, although there will be many Stu. G. heads. There will only by one Anne Russell with her bubbling laugh although many Senior presidents. Last but not least, we are Miss Bailey ' s last Senior class, although she will not be here to send us out from Abbot. I believe everyone of us feels that Miss Bailey has not gone, but is still proud of us when we try to carry out her ideals for ourselves and for Abbot. We, who have heard so many of her beautiful morning chapel programs, praying for those who are in need, doubt, or sorrow, praying for peace, and praying to God to guide the rulers of our country, cannot help feeling this. I can see, without half trying, Miss Bailey stand- ing in chapel perhaps putting a spark of humor into an announcement by the tone of her voice or by the expression of her face. I think the thought that has guided many of us this year is, " Would Miss Bailey have wished it? " and perhaps that is a good thought to take out into the world with us. 36
