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.

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.

Forward to classes-. ' 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.
