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 [44]

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.

also for the British War Relief. We do- nated to needy charities the money which we saved on Wednesday night candlelight dinners. But aside from its weekly vesper service and the help it tries to give in many directions, there is something less tangible for which A.C.A. stands every day of every week. That something is a Friendly Spirit. The members of Executive Board are: Nancy Kelley, President; Betty Harris, Vice President; Harriet Means, Secretary; Dorothy Harvey, Treasurer. Athletic Association EVERY girl a member and every girl a rival — this is A. A. A. Gus, the Griffin, and Lister, the loyal Gargoyle, lend their humorous touches to our two rival clubs. Laden with books and balanc- ing their Tiffin, the A. A. A. Council are seen scurrying down to the corrective room where they nominate new heads of major and minor sports and hope the weather- man will favor them with suitable weather for our seasonal field days. Our Council this year consisted of Miss Carpenter, the Director of Physical Edu- cation, and Miss Rhodes, her assistant; Julie Nelson, President; Mary Purcell, serving double duty as Vice-President and Captain of the Griffins; Mimi Calder, Secre- tary; Eleanor Knox, Treasurer; and Addie Waterhouse, Captain of the Gargoyles. The heads of major and minor sports were: Lyn Menschik, hockey; Nancy Eccles, tennis; Dorothy Harvey, basketball; Eleanor Cole, ice; Helen Craig, snow; Jane Parrot, riding; Betty Gorsuch, golf; Edna Nutton, baseball; Jane Philbin, hiking; Bonney Wilson, badminton; Margaret McFarlin, croquet; Sue Bates, ping-pong; Jessie Mc- Creery, archery; Ruth Snider, deck tennis.

The " A " Society is an honor- ary society encouraging its members to excel in sports and to inject real spirit into the school athletics. As we flaunt our cherished blue A ' s, we joyfully realize that we are now more than halfway to the blazer — four hundred and fifty points. We had our annual picnic at Ipswich [45]
