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- [58]

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- [57]

other year. The varsity basketball team was: Mary Bertucio, Jo Hartwell, Honora Haynes, Eleanor Knox, Gretchen Roemer, Addie Waterhouse. While all this was going on we got s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d beyond belief in modern dance. During the winter we did some dance studies and an original composition on " Play " which gave everyone in the class a chance for creative expression. Warm weather took us then to the green tennis courts for many types of play. When the number of girls who had walked and " winter sported " for points was announced in chapel, the Griffins were out of sight they were so far ahead! Mean- while the Gargoyles at once renewed many mental resolutions. On Monday afternoon in April the tennis courts were suddenly stricken with a case of blue polka dots. Yes, spring sports had begun, so tennis, golf, riding and baseball filled out afternoons with new interest. English country dance rehearsals were also begun for presentation on the Circle for Abbot ' s birthday celebration. The grand finale, the awarding of the silver shield to the victorious team for the year 1940- ' 41, came on a certain June morning when the last chapel was held and the school waited breathlessly for the announcement. The outcome? Go and consult the shield itself! [59]
