the roaring voices indoors. Those who could made plans for Northfield after an absorbing vesper service devoted to pic- tures and information concerning the con- ference. The last week end before spring vaca- tion brought us the Senior Play, " The Cradle Song, " and the last vesper service was marked by the return of Mr. Richard- son. It seemed like old times again in the chapel, and many of us enjoyed a good discussion with him when the service was over. On March 20 we again embarked, bag and baggage, for our spring vacation amid joyous shouts, wild gestures, and beaming countenances. April 2nd brought us back laden with Easter bonnets and suffering from spring fever. Our first Saturday we were treated to a brilliant two-piano recital by Miss Friskin and her brother, Mr. James Friskin. The following week we were amazed to hear that work was to begin on the new wing of Draper Hall. We watched with interest as strings and stakes ap- peared on our beloved croquet grounds, and we tried our best to concentrate as " Lorraine, " the steam shovel, trans- formed our quiet campus into a rival for a teeming city. Dr. George Roemmert gave us a fascinating lecture with his microvivarium, and we were suspicious of Above: Chap Walk Below: Station Wagon — Our Pride and Joy Amidst Andoi Camera!

Above: Curtain Call on " Infanta Below: " Rebecca " Makes Up dogs and cocoa. In sharp but pleasing con- trast were the cozy Wednesday afternoons in the McKeen Rooms where we chatted and sipped our tea, carefully watching our figures as the brownies came and went. Before we knew it the Senior Mid plays were on! They were: " The Birthday of the Infanta " and " Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. " The first left us with lumps in our throats as the hapless hunchback died and the heartless Infanta scoffed. Rebecca, however, lifted our spirits as she pranced mischievously about, much to her irate aunt ' s distress. We were deeply impressed by the excellent acting of the Senior Mid class. The days slipped by and again there was a large departure for our " free week end. " Those who stayed had a restful few days, some enjoying a performance of the Ballet Russe in Boston. Phyllis Bentley lectured on the dilemma of a story writer and so interested us that we immediately set about to read some of her works. At a student recital we were amazed and very proud of the talent of our schoolmates. It hardly seemed possible that the strange sounds which wafted from the third floor all year could culminate in such extra- ordinarily entertaining results. Next came a joint concert of our Fidelio with the Governor Dummer Glee Club when the roaring blizzard outdoors all but rivaled Off to Work Yippee! Vacation Special! 67]

On Easter we blossomed forth in gay finery and many corsages, and in the evening had our impressive service with a sermon by our good friend Dr. Pomeroy, of Milton. Spring was really here now, with a temperature of 90° in the shade, and we roller-skated, basked in the sun, kept in " Good Humors, " went off on jaunts in the country, and ate sandwiches prepared by our hard-working committee for the British War Relief.. Mrs. Gray ' s special speech pupils, and the music students again, performed excellently in their re- citals on succeeding evenings. And finally the long-anticipated Senior Prom week end brought the month of April to a close, and Abbot ' s 112th birthday was celebrated on May 10th with bagpipes, country dancing on the circle, an entertainment in Davis Hall, and a bazaar for the benefit of the B.W.R. The regional Cmn Laude meeting was held at Abbot and brought streams of members, mostly boys, to our midst for a day. The last Field Day of the year came and went, and before we knew it we were busily involved in final examin- ations. The last full Commencement week end with all its mixed emotions wound up the year ' s activities, and Abbot 1940-41 moved on into history. [69]
