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 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.
