HOWEVER pressed their time may be between sports and studies, our organizations and socie- ties, nevertheless, exert an influence on our lives often outweighing that of our more formal activity. Filling in our odd moments are the meetings of organizations, which serve to give direction to our life outside the class- room, to keep the wheels running smoothly, to provide outlets for special talents, and to recognize outstanding ability and accomplishment. Our societies, to which we are elected by virtue of demonstrated interest, foster within us a vision of future achievement. Who knows? By 1951 we may be stirring the public as convincing Lady Macbeths, thrilling Marion Andersons, sage and witty Dorothy Thompsons or delightful Willa Cathers. Thus, through the medium of our organized activities, we contribute to our school life and aspire to greater endeavor and usefulness in the years that lie ahead. Back Row.

Student Government Christian Association THE main purpose of Student Govern- ment is to create real interest and spir- it at Abbot. Through this kind of govern- ment the Principal, faculty and students work hand in hand, and in this way we cover wider viewpoints and wishes. The chapel and corridor proctors are appointed by us, and we take care of all elections during the year. The Student Council is made up of the presidents of all the classes, the president and vice-president of the Senior Class, Athletic Association and Christian Association, the Head of Day Scholars and the officers of the Student Government. The four officers of the Stu- dent Government, the president of the Senior Class and the A. A. A. and A.C.A. presidents comprise the Executive Board. With these representatives on the Council it is possible for each class and organiza- tion, through these girls, to contribute to the welfare of Abbot. Emily Mills, President; Betsy Fowler, Secretary; Addie Waterhouse, Vice Presi- dent; Nancy Eccles, Head of Day Scholars. THE notice " A.C.A. tonight " and the sound of the gong remind us every Sunday of the big part A.C.A. plays in our lives at Abbot. For A.C.A., we wrote to New Girls and the Seniors dressed dolls for the children at Hindman. Our pains- taking efforts were well rewarded by the appreciative letter from our Abbot alumna working there. The children ' s party at Christmas was thoroughly enjoyed by the board members as well as by the children who squealed with delight as they re- ceived their presents from Santa Claus (alias Dottie Harvey). Our Sunday night vespers, led by the Seniors, were inspiring to us all, and we will never forget the first talk we gave which caused our knees to shake and our hearts to thump in double time. A.C.A. organized this year three Red Cross groups — beginners and advanced knitters and a sewing group. At Christmas time we proudly presented our finished work to the local chapter. After Christmas we worked not only for the Red Cross but Back Row: Ware, Campbell, M. Hamilton, Shields, Fiske Second Row: Bates, Gorsuch, Rathbone Front Row: Harris, Means, Kelley, Harvey
