Time: Second Period Place: The Circle Were you ever inspired to the point of wishing to be a polyglot? 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. Senorita ' s Spanish table may not have a menu, but the games which they play teach them everything on and around the table. Poor Mile. Trouve is being introduced to Ameri- can food, and is still trying to acquire a taste for that delicacy, the hotdog! Word problems, algebraic equa- tions, and hexagons are the complex Hilda R.

tites with " foodless parties " ! Palates are satisfied bv Ellerv Queen and the Hit Parade instead! 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.

In her absence Miss Roth did a wonderful job in carrying on discussions on governmental devel- opment, and the storing up of dates! [38]

issues presented to students by Miss Hancock, Mrs. Fischer, Miss Tucker, and Mrs. Poland. Under their guid- ance the answers turn up as they should and A is proved equal to B. Miss Hancock also conducts excur- sions to the observatory for star gaz- ing. With her interest in stars, her superstition concerning rabbits seems quite incompatible! Besides algebra, Miss Tucker teach- es a class of would be chemists, to whose antics in the laboratory the other occupants of the building can testify by the smell! Miss Tucker is also renowned for her stride and her jokes posted on the first floor bulletin board. Mrs. Poland ' s class in biology chill the blood of the rest of the school with their discussion of dissecting. On Friday night, however, nature is set aside and Mrs. Poland conducts the dissecting of an engine in motor mechanics. For the future career girl Miss Dooley ' s classes fill the periods with dictations, speed tests, and numbers. For those who would be housewives, Miss Dodge ' s homemaking class is designed. There un even seams are contended with and overcome. A student doesn ' t have to be talent- ed to enjoy " the Arts " at Abbot. Per- Isabel M. Hancock, A.B.
