S. A. Because we love her and miss her; because she helped us all and was an integral part of our school life; because she worked tirelessly to make the library useful and attractive; because of her love of what was beautiful and true; because of her devotion to her family and friends; because of her complete unselfishness and all the rare tilings she was, we, the Class of 1942, as a small token of our affection and gratitude for her contribution to our lives, dedicate our yearbook to MARGARET SNOW May 6, 1901— January 5, 1942 " The old order changeth, yielding place to new, and God fulfills Himself in many ways lest one good custom should corrupt the world. " Just twenty-five years ago our country entered the last war — the " war to end wars. " The reconstruction period was borne cheerfully because people com- placently thought there would be peace and democ- racy forever. Now in 1942 we are plunged into a war involving the whole world, in which not only our ideals and those privileges which we take to be the fundamentals of democracv are at stake, but our very survival as well. All of this spells change — in our mode of life, in our habits of thinking, in our expec- tations for the future. All of this requires courage, imagination, and steadfastness of purpose. With the thought in mind of the " changes which are sure to come " to us all, but which, nevertheless, " we do not fear to see " because we know that without change there can be no growth, the Yearbook Board of 1942 gives its volume of The Circle into your hands. s PEAKING of changes . . . ! We came to Abbot with long skirts and short hair, and lived on the floor! Many are the fourth wild tales told of that first year! We were organized into a class, but spent most of our time getting used to Abbot and standing in awe of the Seniors. Time passed. Our numbers thinned and new girls came to fill in the ranks. We moved down in Draper, and some of the lucky ones went into Abbey. O Senior Mids at last, and sporting new yellow THE STORY OF THE CLASS sweaters we thought the last w eek of school, with the transfer of the Senior Parlor. would never co me. And as for being Seniors our- selves—that just seemed impos- sible! But finally September, nineteen forty- one, arrived and how important we felt! Humbly we set the pace for our younger sisters, whom we now present, and seriously to the end we took our jobs of being Seniors. OF NINETEEN FORTY-TWO PREP CLASS They came to Abbot in a year when all was in the process of changing, not only in the school, but also in the world at large. However, thev weren ' t aware that thev were the beginning of a new and different day at Abbot. They got off to a good start and soon " belonged " as much as did the Seniors them- selves. Leaders of the Preps: Presidents — Alary Jane Kurth and Madge Twomey; Vice- Presidents — Jean Russell and Sally Leavitt; Secretaries — Josephine Bernardin and Janet Redman; Treasurers — Gretchen Fuller and Nancy Ferns.

[8] JUNIORS AND JUNIOR MIDS They are the " in-betweens " of Abbot, but they hold their own! We sympathize with them for we were in their position once ourselves. They are just getting used to Abbot ways and yet they are not old enough to be an " old timer. " Never mind! Their turn will come soon! Junior and Junior Mid Leaders : Presidents —Frances MacDonald and Molly Hubbard; Vice Presidents — Priscilla Stevens and Mar- garet Travis; Secretaries — Catherine Feeney and Elizabeth Colson; Treasurers — Charlotte Iceland and Betty Bertucio.

We pass on to them all that was ours and wish them success and happiness. Senior Mid Officers: Presidents — Margaret Hill and Ann Bacon; Vice Presidents— Betsy Bennett and Sallv Zimmermann; Sec- retaries — Marjorie Lehmann and Mary Alice Beckman; Treasurers — Anne Pearson and Barbara Ohnick.

We take our leave with regret and yet with a subtle satisfaction, as we join the large band of loyal Abbot alumnae.

For us the mem ' ry of many happy days, Returning after we have gone on our ways, Will make us stronger, keep the purpose clear Which we discovered while we studied here. For us the counsel of those who helped us learn What were our standards, which the way to turn — Untouched by change, whate ' er the future brings, Lies in the circle of our Senior rings. — Frances Flint Not just a tree we leave behind A Spirit leave we too, An upright thought of Abbot born, We hand it on to you. The tree we plant for you to keep. In memory guard it well, Our loyalty is rooted here, The love we cannot tell.

What will we remember about it? First of all, beloved faculty faces were missing and new ones took their places. School opened to the hammering of carpenters and the smell of paint. The new dining room was used for the first time, the new library was still very much under construction and part of the Class of ' 42 returned for two months to the fourth floor where it was born! Because of the war, the outlook and emphasis of the school was somewhat shifted. Societies were pushed into the back- f THE STORY OF THE YEAR m ground to make way for defense courses. Fire drills gave way to air raid drills and blackouts. Sugar was scarce. The soup course was omitted. We conserved paper, cut down on parties, and bought defense stamps. " Hoard- ing ' ' and " priorities ' ' became familiar words. Other words and phrases hitherto unheard of crept into our vocabula- ries. There was an air of alert- ness and of eagerness to help which was evident throughout the year. The fundamental traditions of the school were not altered, but Abbot swung into a wartime tempo. OF NINETEEN FORTY-TWO THE Marguerite Capen Hearsey, Principal Parties at sunset, with Tinker on field day, poetry classes, amusing anecdotes, and gadgets for black-outs and air-raids will ever be reminders of the leader of Abbot, Miss Hearsey. These things, her friendly council, and gay smile have endeared her to the whole school. [36] FACULTY AT ABBOT Getting acquainted with the Griffins ' new mascot In the faculty, too, this has been a year of change, for with the return of familiar faces has come the wel- coming of many new ones. The functions of the front offices and their occupants play an important part in an Abbotite ' s life. This she discovers early in the fall when she joins the Wednesday after lunch queue for a week-end permission from Miss Rath, signs out or sends a telegram through Miss Goodman, or when, in going to buy a ticket from Miss Baynes, she is told by Miss Robinson that she has overdrawn her account and she has no money to finance her trip. Then comes the prom with per- haps an application entered in the blind date department and partici- pation in the pre-prom fashion par- ade, both under the auspices of Miss Humes. To Miss Coolidge our student betakes herself for all requests from pins and a table cloth for a play to peppermint stick ice cream.

Novels, plays, themes, and vocabu- lary constitute a busy year for the English department. In studying lit- erature of today essays even on slang and Hollywood are discussed, at which time Miss Sweeney admits her dilemma over the headlines ' Louis Kayoes Hunter " , and spends a week end reading her first movie magazine from cover to cover ! Miss Wilkinson inspires her classes with a passion for words, and few Mrs. Malaprops are to be found in their ranks. Besides her English classes Miss Baker is the guiding light of the course in home nursing. Tea and the symphony constitute very pleasant Sunday afternoons in her room. Miss Tuttle has many fascinating stories of India at her finger-tips which she tells with gusto. Thursdays and Fridays find Miss Sullivan ' s enviable gray coupe parked outside McKeen. This is conclusive evidence that vocabulary, reading for speed, or achievement tests are in store. Alice Sweeney, A.B. Director of Studies, English 175 Berkeley Street Lawrence, Massachusetts M.

The Abbotite who was has found her op- portunity — dictionaries in almost any modern language and a staff of teach- ers who rearrange the words and idioms into grammatically correct sentences with amazing ease. In fact, Miss McKee so enthuses her class, that when Valentine ' s Day arrived they burst forth in lace, red hearts, and Latin! Although she and Miss Robinson spend most of the morning conducting Caesar ' s Gallic Wars or carrying on Virgil and Cicero ' s ora- tions, second period is their recess and they never fail in their jaunt around the circle. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner bring strange echoes from the various cor- ners of the dining room. Comments on the weather and emphatic " si ' s " or " oui ' s " are the most audible parts of the conversation, although Miss Baynes ' table lays claim to interesting discussions of politics and the news! Miss Rechnitzer ' s guests are even so fortunate as to have a menu each evening.

' haps she can not aspire to the choir, but there is always Fidelio or Choral under Mr. Howe ' s supervision, and she certainly doesn ' t have to be an artist to enjoy the art studio. If an inhabitant of the third floor misses her bed animals or hears blasts of music from above, she will, upon applying to Miss Hatch and her art class, find the cause of her grievances on the fourth floor. It is, however, in Miss Gay ' s classes that the history of the art practiced in the studio is studied, slight though the resemblance may be ! Under the direction of Miss Friskin and Mr. Howe the music studio is kept active with piano lessons and practicing, while Miss Tingley coaches her singers over in the John-Esther Gallery. It is at the Sunday concerts that the fruits of these efforts are enjoyed. The girls who think " the play ' s the thing " see Mrs. Gray, the director of Abbot ' s dramatics. Those not born actresses join the company to work on properties. Although the dress rehearsal is invariably reported " aw- ful, " the performance never fails to surpass all expectations. The call of the sports world is an- swered every afternoon as the Gar- goyles and Griffins, coached by Miss Carpenter and Miss Elvedt, get in training for the final tests of skill on field day.

On the side, Miss Elvedt is the conductor of the not quite so popular foot class and the author of the current " posture marks due Saturday " notice on the hall board. Fire and air raid drills and explana- tions are Miss Carpenter ' s specialty. Out of a maze of stairways, entrances, and exits she has evolved a system which works without a hitch. Ski room, posture classes, a merry twinkle, and a brown tweed coat are also associated with her name. Have you a cold? Do you need some cough drops or a box of Kleenex? Thus Miss Duff and Mrs. Coon are kept busy by the ceaseless comings and goings at the infirmary. It is with regret that students have had to say good-bye to Mr. Gibbons as he leaves for his new parish in the west. The interesting discussion in his Bible classes will be missed.

HANNAH RICHMOND DUNCAN October 23, 1886-August 6, 1941 She was our friend and helped us all in many ways. To her we went, not only when we were sick but also when we needed advice and help. She made the infirmary a haven where we found peace and comfort. Even though she had serious worries of her own, she was always cheerful and brisk, ready with a kind word or a helping hand. We shall always remember Mrs. Duncan as a bright and shining light in our life at Abbot. [43] FALL TERM " But they went in easily! " " Where is Abbey House? " a timid voice asked in the lobby of Draper. Immediately a welcoming horde of A.C.A. and Student Government rep- resentatives rushed to the rescue, and one more frightened newcomer was made to feel at home on her first day at Abbot. The Abbot Christian Association is indeed an integral part of the school life, for through it the desire to be of help to others, which is in the heart of every girl here, is ex- pressed and fulfilled. This year es- pecially the organization, led by Bah Hill, gave its never failing aid and encouragement, from throwing bean bags with the Andover children at the Christmas Party to dressing dolls and packing toys for Hindman.

All feel indebted to the Council members for their help in Digging in Miss Hearsey and Tinker chaperoning Resting after fun maintaining the high standards of Abbot. The first Saturday back at school was brightened considerably by the traditional Old Girl-New Girl Picnic at Pomp ' s, when group singing, girls falling into the pond, and baseball, with Miss Hearsey pitching, were the highlights of the day. That night " bluejeans " escorted " skirts " to the A.C.A. party for new girls. The school was divided into groups, and each group asked to depict, with the aid of newspapers and pins, a nation- ally known figure. Admiral Byrd, complete with snowshoes and hood, I ' mm! Food! was easily the winner. A floor show by old-girl talent, doughnuts, cider and " Good Night Ladies " completed the evening. [46] After this happy day of getting acquainted, new and old settled down to a more routine life, interspersed with helping Miss Woolley with tulip bulbs in the new garden, Senior breakfasts at Kirkshire, and Saturday luncheon rides, canoe trips and nose- bag walks. Then on one of the last sizzling days before fall set in the Seniors were off for Ipswich and their long anticipated picnic. They walked barefooted on the sand, saw the bus drivers go wading, watched the full moon rise over the water, ate divine food around the fire, and as the embers died away they sang -...,■. Come spring — come tulips all the best loved songs. Then back to school and corridor stunts in their honor in Davis Hall. Very early in the year the Abbot Stuffed with a Kirkshire breakfast Careful! Picnics are more fun with food! [47] Athletic Association takes up its duties in the field of sport. It was masterfully headed this year by Mary Bertucio, who presided at the first meeting (when the new girls became Gargoyles or Griffins) with such grace and poise that everyone knew it would be an extra special year for athletics — and so it was! Two important members of the A. A. A. were Betsey Fowler and Mari- lyn Menschik, who made fine captains of the Griffins and Gargoyles respec- tively, and led their teams with out- standing sportsmanship throughout the year. Lynn ' s team started out Betsey Fowler and " The Goat " , Lynn Menschik and Lister way ahead, but no one can be certain of anything until the year is over when the shield will tell the whole story.

Stevens Leslie, Gorsuch Fall Field Day came on November 15 before anyone realized that it was time to welcome in the winter sports season. In traditional style the Gar- goyles, with Lister in the lead, and the Griffins with their goat (which no one got, in spite of everything), marched to the middle of the circle, serenaded the faculty gathered on Draper Hall steps, and continued to the athletic fields. Very important on Field Day, as well as on all other school occasions during the year, were the Abbot song leaders: Jeanne Bowersox for the school, Bunny Shaw for the Gar- goyles, and Rhody Wind for the Griffins. The fact that they had good voices as well as leading ability made them unusually well fitted for their Shaw, Bowersox, Wind [49] jobs. For years to come Jeanne ' s name will probably be blessed at Ab- bot because with the help of her com- mittee she revised and brought up-to- date the Abbot Song Book. The Gargoyles came out ahead in the final hockey games. It was a hard struggle from the very beginning, and the contest was so close throughout the season that rules and even safety were disregarded for the first few weeks. Poor Miss Elvedt had to start her first year at Abbot by trying to recall to the Abbot Amazons impor- tant points which they had apparently forgotten during the summer. She Molly Hubbard, Gargoyle Bert Bertucio, Griffin was frankly appalled at first, but she succeeded in bringing order out of chaos, and the season eventually produced some fine games. Members of the varsity were: Anne Corkran, Betsey Fowler, Bette Gorsuch, Hon- ora Haynes, Peggy Howard, Louise Leslie, Betsv Lvtle, Marilvn Men- " Come along schik, Barbara Ohnick, Pat Petten- gill and Joan Sweeney. The tennis singles match was not so quickly or so conclusively decided as was the hockey. The school was tense and excited as it watched the incomparable game between Bert i ™ i and Molly, saw Bert take the first set and lose the second 12 to 10, and finally as it heard that the entire match would have to be postponed until another day because there was no time for the third set on Field Day. and march! " Two days later Molly, the Gargoyle, won in a beautifully played match. This was a terrific upset, for the Griffins had won the tennis singles every year for several years. The Gargoyles were also successful in the tennis doubles. Another sport which is rapidly be- coming more and more popular is Straight shooter archery, which was one of the con- tests on Field Day. A number of Abbot girls won national archery awards during the fall term, among them Marilyn Barlow and Diantha Hamilton. Marilyn, together with Esther Smith, brought additional glory to the Gargoyles by winning the archery. Edna Nutton, Gargoyle, won the badminton. The Griffins won only the croquet, ping-pong, and deck ten- nis. Elinor Cahill, Ruth Goodall and Josephine Bernardin were the winners respectively. Needless to say, the Gargoyles went wild over their successes, and the 51 Gargoyle: England, M. Stevens Griffin: Snider, Taylor Griffins, in spite of their initial set- backs, quietly remembered that the year was only one-third over, and that much could happen in the six months still remaining. Members of the athletic council were hostesses at the tea which followed the Field Day events, and in the midst of many reciprocal serenades and team songs awards were presented by Miss Hear- say after dinner in Davis Hall. And while the fall program was pro- gressing, work on the new wing and the Library was quietly (?) and slow- ly, but surely proceeding. Before the underclassmen knew what was hap- pening twenty-four Seniors had de- scended from the fourth floor and were comfortably settled in their spacious and attractive new rooms, with pink tiled bathrooms included! And from then on there were two stairways to the dining-room instead of one, and the faculty began finding it hard to get to meals on time ! The Library was the last of the new wing to be completed. The second week in December, under Miss Snow ' s careful direction, the books were moved to their spacious new home with a loss to the students of only two periods of study time. Gargoyle: Clark, Estin Griffin: A. Garratt, Replogle [52] " Gammer Gurtons Needle " The Abbot Dramatic Society pro- duced two novel plays — the famous " Gammer Gurton ' s Needle, " starring Virginia Gourley as Gammer, and " They ' re None of them Perfect, " starring the whole society. No one will ever forget Jeanne standing on one leg, swaying dangerously, and talking on and on. The fist fight be- tween Gammer and her neighbor, played by Sally Zimmermann, was likewise memorable. The A.D.S. chap- el " Jepthah ' s Daughter, " which was based on an Old Testament story, was one of the most moving produc- tions which Mrs. Gray has ever directed, despite the fact that it was played without costume. Special men- tion should be made of the perform- Jeanie intent on evil! [53] ance of Betty Jean England, who played the title role. Other chapel programs were pre- sented by C our ant, Aeolian and Philo- matheia. Courant discussed " The Psy- chological Effect of Radio in Modern Warfare " which sounded alarming but which turned out to be highly illuminating. Philomatheia presented ' The Place of Science in Defense, " from the point of view of conserva- tion, nutrition, search, invention, etc. which proved to be full of valuable information. Aeolian gave a Christ- mas program of various Yuletide customs in different countries, and of ' ' They ' re None of Them Perfect " A.D.S.: Menschik, Rathone, Pettengill, Caldarone, Ziinmermann, Gorsuch, England (Gourley, Hill, Bowersox) carols played by the members on hand bells.

The stories were appealing, and the poetry — why Abbot is running over with Keatses and Shelleys ! L.B.A., Odeon, and Q.E.D. dis- continued their meetings after Christ- mas in order to take an active part in the defense courses. Society members thereafter joined the rest of the school on Friday evenings when they lay stretched out on the floor being tied into knots by eager first aiders, Philomatheia: McFarlin, Dean, McKay, Ware, Q.E.D. : D. Hamilton, Manning, Wind, Sime, Fowler, Haynes Snider, Bevier, Sands [55] or under " Lily Belle, " the 1930 model Buick, where they showed up as very unskilled mechanics! All of this certainly represented a change from the quiet room with someone reading a play by Shaw, for instance, typical of former society meetings. Hardest of all, parties became things of the past. And speaking of defense, five regu- lar courses were offered at Abbot in response to a general wish on the part of the students to prepare them- selves for greater usefulness in the national emergency. These were First Aid, Home Nursing, Motor Mechan- ics, Canteen, and a current events group — " The World Today. " They turned out to be real work, and it Underclassmen make scrapbooks for hospitals Not slumber time Home Nursing Scene [56] Motor Mechs make sparks fly Canteen cookers Choir: Top: Robillard, Pearson, Bowersox, Leslie Middle: Shaic, Todd, H.

Broken arms, flat tires, or feeding five hundred people at a moment ' s notice no longer seemed unsolvable problems. Suddenly, just as the fall program was settling nicely into a regular routine, everyone began dressing dolls or practicing songs for Christ- mas. As always, the choir did a great deal to make the exciting days preced- ing Christmas vacation a favorite time of the Abbot year. Everyone will long remember how inspiringly they sang the Magnificat at the Christmas Service, and all went home on December 19 in holiday mood. [57] for Intervale . Can ' t you tell: First glimpse of Utopia WINTER TERM A dismal three weeks set in when the school returned on January 6th. completely exhausted as usual. But Smiling in spite of bad luck mid-years were soon over and the great day arrived when the Seniors took off for Intervale. The first inno- vation was the mad dash for lip- sticks, with both Miss Hearsev and Miss Carpenter joining in! The second was headquarters at Kearsarge — but near enough to Intervale to make no difference at all. The days were a wonderful jumble of skiing, skating to music, eating far beyond normal capacities, trying hard to snatch some sleep, and discovering new friend-. " Aunty " Pam ' s unending special-, telegrams and phone calls served as the only link with the out- side world. A broken ankle was the [58 Monett and Zimmermann in " The Maker of Dreams " only casualty, but poor Gretch was confined to crutches for weeks after a very sad group of Seniors returned for another semester of work. The Senior Mids ' annual presenta- tion of plays in honor of the Seniors brought a welcome escape from toil. Bunny Shaw as " Pompey dear, " and Betsy Bennett as the sweet Lady Violetta were outstanding in " The Knave of Hearts. " The other plays, " Cottage for Sale " and " The Maker of Dreams " completed an excellent program which the Seniors and every- one else thoroughly enjoyed. One definite innovation in this year of change was the prom, lengthened into a whole week end instead of end- ing most sadly at twelve o ' clock Sat- urday night as before, and coming on March 8th instead of late in April in order to fit in with the new speed-up schedules of many boys ' colleges — an important factor! There seemed to be a great scarcity of dates this year, but by the time the day arrived, the boys arrived too. Tea and dancing in the new recreation room were en- joyed in the afternoon, and after a quick supper of hamburgers in the basement of Draper — strictly a hen party — the formal dance was held in Such a serious receiving line! [59 Bewitched, bothered and bewildered! the beautiful new dining room. Es- corts at church and at Sunday dinner caused quite a commotion, and then, alas, at two o ' clock curfew sounded and many dejected girls found them- selves either hopelessly in love or hopelessly out of it, but deserted in either case. On the Saturday before spring vacation the Seniors presented " The Barretts " —a complete triumph. Bette Gorsuch as Elizabeth not only played her part; she lived it. Jeanne Bower- sox as Browning portrayed the daring unconventionality of that character splendidly. The supporting cast was equally fine. Every year Abbot sends delegates to the Northfield Conference and their reports stimulate interest among the students for the following year. Their " Good Night " meetings and their occasional vesper services keep " The Barretts, " presented by the Class of ' 4 2 l«o] the group very close throughout the year. Contrary to all expectations, bas- ketball, not skiing, was the sport of the winter season, especially among the Griffins who began to take their turn at success. Members of varsity basketball were: Mary Bertucio, Hon- ora Haynes, Marjorie Hamilton, Mol- ly Hubbard, Edith Ninomiya and Ruth Snider. The other major sport during the winter term was modern dance and, languid as it sounds, there was nothing in the physical education program more strenuous ! At the end of each season of sport one of the most exciting announce- ments is the winners of the two hun- dred and fifty points required for membership in the " A " Society. " A " Society — Top: Zeitung, Williams, Lytle, Leh- mann Bottom: Haynes, McFarlin, Menschik, Folwer Northfield " Goodnight " Meeting Gargoyle Basketball Team: Zei- Griffin Basketball Team: Bertucio, tung, Lytle, Estin, Ohnick, Men- Snider, Hamilton, Richards, schik, Hubbard Haynes, Ninomiya [01] SPRING TERM All winter prospective skiers looked in vain for snow. As soon as they gave up hope and packed their skis away for the summer the snows came! Yes, spring arrived robed in white, but before long the golf, tennis, riding and baseball majors were well launched on their spring sports pro- gram. There was a strange new interest in Fidelio this year! Could it have been caused by the presentation of " H.M.S. Pinafore " with the masterful aid of Phillips Academy? At any rate Dance for Victory! the show was a great success and was repeated by request for the benefit of Andover ' s defense efforts. And now before this story draws to a close, the Yearbook Board Spring at last! .bring out equestriennes! [OS] Fidelio: Betsy Lytle, President; Frances Flint, Accompanist would pause to present itself. Its one goal has been to produce a good record of 1941-42. Betty Hardy, its most efficient Editor, even succeeded in getting the rest of the Board to working the night before spring vaca- tion ! Happy was the day on which the final copy went to press. " Three loving pairs on the same day unitedV Yearbook Board: Craig, Wind, Leslie, Douglas, Hardy, Ninomiya, Lytic, Clark, Bishop, McFarlin Finally Abbot ' s Birthday, Field Day, final examinations, Rally Night, the Garden Party, Draper Dramatics, the last student recital and Bacca- laureate Sunday passed in too rapid succession. Commencement Day ar- rived at last, and fifty-seven proud Seniors in blue gowns joined in their Cum Laude: Flint, Bowersox, Douglas, Bishop, Lytic, Roemer (Goodman Farewell to Abbot [64] last ceremony together. Sorrow and joy were so mingled that no one knew whether to laugh or to cry. For it is a serious time, when youth goes forth to face the world for the first time, especially when that world is at war. No matter where they find them- selves next year, all will feel the war, and all will remember with happiness and gratitude their years at Abbot. . . . on our heels a fresh perfection treads, A power more strong in beauty, born of us, And fated to excel us. . . .
