The Song of the Class of ' 40 Ring Song With hearts and with voices ringing Along with cheers and laughter gay The Class of ' 40 hails you ' Til its everlasting day; Remembering the happy hours In the long years that have passed, We ' ll cheer for the Class of ' 40 To the very, very last. Tree Song As days give way to months And months to years, This chestnut tree will grow And hold no fear Of losing life, or threat, or food, But persevere Her happy, peaceful life, In Abbot ' s fold While we must face another world And risks untold; The days of work and play Which now are past There was no time to value, They sped so fasti But memories of cherished days, Like trees, will last. -Priscilla Williams Such golden memories, vibrant, deep, Of treasured days, The ties of friendship made along Our carefree ways Acquiring strength to stand the blows Life seems to bring: All this we have forever bound In thee, our ring. Such precious things! the victory o ' er A burdening fear The bits of wisdom gleaned to make Life ' s pathways clear, The true ideals to which we ' ll strive And bravely cling: All this we have forever bound In thee, our ring. Some glistening tears are jewelled there Among them all, So sadly shed o ' er childhood cares Now trifling, small, Yet each another seed is, sown For flowering: All this we have forever bound In thee, our ring. -Elizabeth Travis

You who are about to succeed us, we salute you! All year long you ' ve bought our secondhand books and have made us realize that we soon will be " old stuff. " Soon all our front rooms, parlor, Intervale, lights, and college confusion will be yours. Gleeful shouts of the Senior Mids re-echo in the corridors, and Sherman and Home- stead tremble beneath your din. Complica- tions set in when Chaucer and long Thanksgiving and Christmas verses came upon the scene. You gave plays so impres- sive that we got a slight crimp in our ego, realizing that all would be far from lost with the exodus of the Class of ' 40. En- viously you watched us go off to Intervale, lent us extra ski pants, and had your first experience at pie-cutting and being the " oldies. " You received our madly en- thusiastic postcards and thought with ec- stasy of the Intervale to come. Midyears over and the byword seemed to be " I ' ll never get to be a Senior. " Streams of hopefuls invaded Miss Sweeney ' s office to talk college. Some former pea- green preps became peagreen Senior Mids when your class sweaters were first worn. Oh! such has been your pride in at last possessing these distinguished garments that we fear said garments will be worn to tatters come the year ' 41 ! You must have felt sort of bouncy inside when at long last you marched into Davis Hall for the Senior Play and sported a jubilant new song along with your new sweaters. Prom came along with the forsythia, and many was the snappy Senior Mid who " swang " happily far into the night. Your picnic, amid hamburgers and hilarity, is now behind you; with impres- sive ceremony you have received the Sen- ior Parlor as your own. Final exams and college boards will soon be things of the past. Ivy planting and the Parting Hymn found you deep in reverie. May your Sen- ior year be as joyous as ours has been, and may it come to a safe and successful con- clusion!
