Back Row: fitting, M. Dean, Finneran, Rathbone Front Row: Davey, Beach, Stuart, Tuttle JUNIOR-MID CLASS You find yourselves in the " neither hay nor grass " state, don ' t you? Neither babes nor hags, you seem to be in a divine realm of ' ' in-between " with lots of fun and little to worry about. Your tea dance went off amid hair-bows and heartbeats, and everyone seemed " happy about the whole thing. " You study American literature and puzzle over parallelograms. And between your social and your academic obligations you have time throughout the year for contemplations of whom to take to Prom next year and of how becoming yellow sweaters are apt to be. Five years you plan to spend in learning to be either delightfully domestic or leisurely learned. Soon — all t oo soon — you will have College Boards and decisions about " the next step " on your hands, so be happy and carefree while you may! Who ' s Who among the Junior Mids: Presidents— Jane Davey and Harriet Beach; Vice Presidents — Margaret Stuart and Ann Zeitung; Secretaries — Mary Ellen Finneran and Marjorie Dean; Treasurers — Lucia Tuttle and Ruth Rathbone. Back Row: eitung, Craig, England, M. Dean, Bolton, Beach, Davey, Lacey, Finneran, Stuart, Tuttle Front Row: B. Hill, Gorsuch, Smithers, Winslow, B. Wilson, Gourley, Rathbone, Jamieson [46]

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! Back Row: McClellan, McCreery, Harvey, Scammon, Shields, Poynter, Grieco, Little, Eccles, Gerrish, Packard Front Row: Mills, Fiske, Rafton, Bondy, Moody, Stott, Harris, Philbin, D. White, E. White, Margery Martin, Maytag [45]

Hail to our " little sisters! " We don ' t know you so well, but we know where to find you! We like your new Abbey House and think you are mighty lucky, but we don ' t like having absolutely no authority there ourselves! You certainly did a smooth job decorating your rooms, though of course Venetian blinds set off drapes better than our ancient shades, but we can ' t help ad- miring your glamor-girl suites . . . And we have to hand it to you for the way you have polished up your dancing since Christmas. We were sick with despair when you first visited the Rec Room and could only glide to three-quarter time. By now our best jitterbug gives the ad- dress of Abbey House! You are to go down in history as the famed first inhabitants of Abbey. If only we had been born a few years later! Leaders of the Juniors and Preps are: Joan Wyatt and Betsy Lytle, Presidents; Marilyn Menschik and Sue Bates, Vice- Presidents; Natty Curran and Betty Hardy, Secretaries; and Louise Clark and Diantha Hamilton, Treasurers. Back Row: Clark, Hardy, Bates, D. Hamilton Front Row: Menschik, Wyatt, Lytle JUNIOR-PREP CLASS Back Row: Wieting, R. Wind, E. Cole, Johnson, Hardy, Bates, Menschik, Wyatt, Lytle, D. Hamilton, Todd, Barss, Caldarone, Snider, Nutton, Eaton Middle Row: Duncan, Barlow, D. Dean, P. White, Goodall, Lehmann, Ware, E. Brooks, Beckman Front Row: Clark, McFarlin, Curran, E. Williams, Strater [47]
