and third teams had played their games and the results were: Second Team — Griffins 3, Gargoyles 1; Third Team — Griffins 6, Gargoyles 1; and contrary to some expectations the Gargoyles defeated the Griffins in the First Team game! Amid loud cheering and wishful sighing from the sidelines the final score of 2-0 was announced. Members of the Abbot Athletic Associa- tion Board were hostesses at a school tea when the day ended. Then we gathered in the Rec Room, Griffins at one end and Gargoyles at the other, to hear Miss Hearsey announce the awards for fall sports. The varsity hockey team was: Honora Hayes, Marjorie Lehmann, Betsy Lytle, Lyn Menschik, Em Mills, Julie Nelson, Ruth Rathbone, Edie White, Elsie Williams and Ann Zeitung. There were also tennis, riding and " A " Society awards. We left the meeting quite clapped and sung out, but very happy over every- thing. After Thanksgiving we hibernated tem- porarily for modern dance and basketball, but soon snow fell and we jumped into ski boots, to the ski room, and then toChapin ' s Hill, Prospect and Miss Hearsey ' s slope, according to our various degrees of skill. Sometimes we went downhill backwards as fast as we went forwards (because of an excess of silver lacquer, of course!) Then just as we thought our ankles were per-

Jt I I  Sports DURING the first weeks of school one often heard the question, " When are we going to know whether we ' re Griffins or Gargoyles? " Finally, after a " huddle " during which strange shapes were cut from green and orange felt, the great day arrived, each girl ' s fate was an- nounced, and she was welcomed by the old members of her team. Both teams serenaded their potential stars. Soon the struggle began in earnest, and when Fall Field Day arrived the competi- tion was close. The day began with a serenade to the faculty, after which we marched to the tennis courts and, sitting in the crackling fall leaves, watched Mary Bertucio against Nanny Eccles for a Grif- fin tennis singles victory. Weesy Clark and B. J. England found Griffins Skip Fiske and Joan Waugh too much for them, and Lister was shaking her Gargoyle head, but Nanny Gerrish and Mimi Shields won the doubles from Dotty Harvey and Ruth Snider which cheered Lister considerably but cast a momentary shadow over the cheerful face of Gus Griffin. On the hockey field there was great tension, for the Griffins had been predomi- nantly victorious in the preliminary games. ' During the first of the week the second ¥

manently crooked from the herring bone, skiing conditions were ruined, and back we went indoors. In the First Group basketball games the Griffins edged out the Gargoyles, and in the next game the Gargoyles staged a comeback and the Griffins struggled in vain. The playing of Knoxie, Honora and Gretchen called forth " Ohs " and " Ahs " from the cheering sections. The Gargoyles were the conquering heroines in Group II, and in Group III the game was deadlocked and ended in a tie. This seesaw state of affairs continued in the second set of bas- ketball battles, Griffins treading Gar- goyles under foot or Gargoyles getting " up and at ' em " and leaving the Griffins far behind. The teams were more than polite! After winning a game each stepped back and let the other have a turn. The games played after spring vacation, pro- mise d to be interesting. They were! Scores were as follows: Group II — Griffins 24, Gargoyles 12; Group III — Griffins 24, Gargoyles 15- The Griffins beamed and the Gargoyles despaired. Then on the day before Easter the Final First and Second Group games were played. Gargoyle faces brightened when the scorekeeper reported the Second Team score a 12-12 tie, and the First Team game an 18-12 victory for the wearers of the green! The basketball season was over for an-
