Here Did We Consecrate Life to the Best i Draper

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!

LIFE is activity, movement, growth, change; at its best it blends them all and fires us with its own contagious spark. The spark may be the wisdom of our speakers, the skillful strokes of a painter, the catching lines of a play; or it may burst from within, kindled by fearful anticipation in a student recital, the exhilaration of canoe trips, rides or walks. It smolders, presently glows, flickers feebly, and soon burns brightly, and as it burns we are affected by its light. We change and grow as a result of that tiny spark planted within or caught from without. The Abbot year, with all its inspiration, sup- plies the spark for those who seek it; they may then look back and know that here they consecrated life to the best. Homestead Sherman Abbey
