English and History AFTER delving into literary realms from Chaucer to contemporaries, we engaged in lively class discussions and were inspired to produce masterpieces. History took on new significance this year in view of the whirlwind of passing events from the presidential election to the Nazi expansion. Yet we toiled over charts, increase and decrease of Royal Authority, tariffs and embargoes, and we still continued to get our dates hopelessly mixed. Alice Sweeney, A.B.

Dorothea Wilkinson English What the well-dressed woman wears, love of the English poets, brown eyes and low voice, Odeon ' s intellectual. LUCILE BURDETTE TuTTLE, A.B.

Administrative Staff MORNING periods are routine. " Of- fice Hours " after lunch create a continual dither of " week-end permis- sions " signing in, signing out, telephone, telegraph and " rec " room music. Genial groups crowding for sitting space on the radiator, mail followed by feminine shrieks " At last, I got one, " or, " Hand me the cloth; dust is gathering in my box... " Why were you absent from Choral? " — all these activities and words are part of the administrative offices and of Abbot life.

I ¥ Math and Science HILARIOUS classes in which Miss Tucker brought to life molecules and their little playfellows, the atoms, consumed two periods a day. Scientific theories as well as brand new nylon stock- ings were unraveled before our very eyes. Physics class, with Mrs. Poland in com- mand, wrangled theories and laws. The mysteries of plants, stars and electricity were revealed. Hyperbolas, parabolas, tri- angles and polygons formed a maze of math, but guided by Miss Hancock, all found their proper places which we hope they will keep. Wf ' %■ ft Isabel Maxwell Hancock, A.B. Mathematics Striking ensembles, Southern drawl, a twinkle and a wink, crowning glory, " sweet dreams. " Mrs. Roberta Gilmore Poland, A.B., M.A. Physics, General Science, Mathematics Mentor through Math maze or Physics haze, the eternal case of the window-stick, inexhaustible pa- tience, clad in beige polo coat. Art and Bible Eleanor Morin Tucker, A.B., M.A. Chemistry, Mathematics Test tubes and formulas, Chem gen- ius, two-period exams, friendliness and likabilitv, jackets and skirts. DOWNSTAIRS, Tuesdays and Thurs- days, a number of students sat around two long tables, learning the fun- damentals of art and architecture. Upstairs in spick and span studio, many young artists sketched while Miss Hatch kept busy running to John-Esther and back. Or- chids to her for the grand exhibits this year. Mr. Gibbons held interesting discus- sions along with stacks of thought books.
