PUBLISHED AT ABBOT THE 1943 CIRCLE She extends a burning torch . . . the. Abbot motto . . . living words in a darkened age. The torch has been passed from the generation of 1829 to ours of 1943; it has survived the chaos of the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War I, and it is now struggling to keep alight in the face of world tragedy for the sake of the future. For us it symbolizes the light of education and of learn- ing, essentials in the building of the better world of which we dream. We of the Yearbook Board have striven to show what this year has brought to our school. The Abbot girl has been called from frivolities and extravagances — a challenge which has not been easy, but the result has been an increase in strength of character and in knowledge. CADEMY, ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS Alice Curtiss Sweeney She takes us in hand when we are frightened new girls and sets our feet upon the way; she guides us through the turbulent days of our in-between years; and when we finally achieve Seniorhood she lightens our hearts with her sparkling wit and gives us courage to meet the new challenges which present themselves. So with loving memories of these gifts which she has so generously given us, we, the Class of 1943, dedicate our Circle with appreciation and grati- tude to MISS SWEENEY Faculty Each of our faculty ignites a spark of learn- ing within us, thus kindling for us the light of liberal thought which shines more clearly throughout our Abbot days and should illuminate our future. 1 1 7311 MARGUERITE CAPEN HEARSEY PRINCIPAL A.B, Hollins; M.A. Radcliffe Ph.D. Yale University enthusiastic energy . . . chapel counsel . . . par- ties and poetry at Sunset . . . cheery smile and friendly spirit. . .

The light increases in value with our growth in knowledge, insight, and wisdom. Prep Class OFFICERS Johnson, Howe, Hogan, Beck Verges, Gorham, H. Bentley, Derby SSl M The Three R ' s Precious, preoccupied Preps! Here ' s to you! You came not knowing which way to turn, but now you seem as fully assured as we, doing your part in sports, and entering into the Rec Room sociability and table setting with wonderful spirit. You came to us in a war year, hearing many of our recollections of the peaceful past, but neverthe- less you have found satisfaction in knowing that you have cooper- ated in helping Abbot face a new life. We will think of you in 1946 when you will be occupying the places we are now leaving ! Pea Green Preps Prom Practice Pie-Bedders [12] Juniors and Junior Mids Commuters H i Srj», OFFICERS D. Wiggin, Burden, Welles, Kurth, Fuller, Madge Twomey, Van Cleve, Hardon Jovial, jiving Juniors and Junior Mids! It hasn ' t taken long for you to know what you came for: study and lots of it! You may be an in- between class, but you have taken hold like real troupers. Your next step will be a new class song, class sweaters, and a pip of a picnic! We know that you have many a trial to face, but there is even more to which you can look forward. The great day is coming and it is worth working for! Drapery Jitters Cottage Cheese [13] Senior Mids OFFICERS Mclvor, M. Stevens, Hitchcock, E. M ' cMwray, Damon, Emerson, A. Garratt. Absent: Hubbard A mblers Animated, able " almosts " —you ' re a wonderful class! You have bridged the gap between Abbey House and the " upper classes " with just the right mixture of dignity and hilarity. When we returned from Intervale to see you in the dining room in your rose sweaters, singing with your typical vigor, we realized what a grand group you are. We saw it again after your picnic when your glowing faces and shining eyes indicated the wonderful time you had had, and the glimpse you have caught of the Senior year which is before you. You had to give up your plays this year and we missed them. But at the Prom you took us all by storm, you and your handsome dates. Affable Antecedents Alluring [14] Angelic Ancients Appetites We realized that night, in the very few seconds we had to think of it, that it would not be long now before you were the Seniors. You still have your best year at Abbot ahead of you beginning with that very small feeling that there is no one left for you to look up to, and that you ' re at the top at last; continuing with the excitement of looking forward to Intervale, the scared feeling between April examinations and the reports from the colleges, suppers at Sunset, your own play, " lights " , Senior Saturday Leaves, the Parlor; and ending with the once-in-a-lifetime sensation of an Abbot graduation. We envy you all these, and we pass them on to you with pride and confidence because we know that you will love and honor them as we have done. The best of luck to all of you! A la Mode Additional Assets [15] Senior Class Class Song Forty-three will stand together And be loyal to the last, For united friends forever Have a standard firm and fast; Our blue and white will lead us on And forever we will sing our song, Ever loyal to thee. No matter what the odds may be We will keep our spirits true to thee, Senior Class of forty-three. OFFICERS Beckman, President; Rutherford, Vice President Richards, Secretary; Sarris, Treasurer The Class of 1943 is the last of a passing procession of one hundred and thirteen classes and will be followed by far more. We have tried to make our mark in a year of change and decision; we have had to make an adjustment from attending a tranquil school to keeping pace in an Abbot which is taking an active part in a world of mechanized war. We face the future with confidence because our lives have been privileged with exposure to the four freedoms led by the light of wisdom. Our part to date has been small, but with the beginnings we have made in self discipline, sacrifice, and comprehension of the permanent values for which our country is fighting, we shall hope to have a part in the continuation of all for which Abbot stands, and in the preservation of the democratic way of life.

[29] Strictly Seniors Our Senior year was such great fun We ' re going to miss it so, Your turn has come, you Senior Mids, For now we all must go. But this year ' s stately Seniors Have had their share of glee, Could we be sad surrounded by Such jovial company? And so, the Class of Forty-three Is leaving this with you : A survey of our Senior year And all we found to do. The day did come, and we did go, ' Twas a jolly sight to see- Pomps Pond, alive with Abbot girls All singing merrily ! [30] The food wc spied, as girls will do, So we ate, and ate, — and ate ! A scavenger hunt and baseball too Made this a joyous date. Once back in school the scene did change When, much to our surprise, The tables turned, we cleared and served, And set, before sunrise! All fall we cheered our favorite team In hopes that it might win, For after school we knew that we Would never " fight " again. A Gargoyle or Griffin, Orange or Green, Would be the winning team; To win the famous plaque award Was our most cherished dream. Then came the Senior picnic A real " Log Cabin " treat, With Stunt Night pranks, plus food for all, The fun was hard to beat. [31] In winter, fall, and spring we took Our " one hour ' s walk " each day, That is, we tried to do our best, Each one in her own way. Sometimes ' round Morton Street we rushed, The sights of the " vill " to see, Spent many a penny at Temple ' s and Lowe ' s, And of course at the A P. Come rainy days — we ' d never fear, Nor fail to make our points, As ducks we ' d splash without a care, It loosened up our joints! We ' d bundle up to meet all odds With boots and " rain hats " too; Bad weather stop us Abbot girls? Why that would never do ! Triumphantly at Christmas time Plum puddings did appear, Each borne aloft to bring to all Some flaming Christmas cheer. -AV -rV [32] Mid-years once over, and worries gone, To Intervale, at last! Where all the world seemed white and clean, Willi snow on mountains massed. With many a tear, and sad farewell, We left the Abbot gate; Three glorious days were ours to have, And we could hardly wait. On Cranmore ski slope, steep and tall, We gazed with many a sigh, For going up was not so bad, But coming down — oh my! Some skied and fell while others — well- They slipped, and floundered too, We found that skiing as a whole Was pretty hard to do. With " Winnie the Pooh " and movies and bridge And food at the Clarendon, We really couldn ' t bear to leave, It was such perfect fun. [33] — . .. .... . To trespass in a certain room Was more than a disgrace. For this the Senior Parlor was, Our special, private place. For there it was, we all would meet Assignment books to see, Or Senior coffee, shall we say, To a limited degree! On Saturday morn the " slip " went up, A dash for all to sign; The lucky ten were counted off The Senior waiting line. " Baronial, " the perfect place For relaxation plus, Will stand out in our memory, For it belonged to us ! On special Senior Saturday Leaves To Boston we did go, Unchaperoned, without a care, We traveled to and fro. 1. ' " -Ill [34] On March the sixth our Prom arrived, Brought boys from far and near, With flowers gay and faces new, Our hearts were full of cheer. The Tea Dance in the afternoon, At night a colorful floor. Army men for the teachers came, And " the one " we ' d waited for. The following morn to chapel we went, Had a buffet lunch at noon, And then, with many a sad farewell, Our Prom ended all too soon. Then eight-fifteen meant chapel time, From there we went our way, Each with a helpful thought in mind To carry through the day. In special rows we Seniors sat, No news for us to give! A Senior ' s days are free from care (?) Oh what a life to live! [35] One Saturday, the fated day, Our futures were at stake, To Davis Hall we all did file Achievement Tests to take. We burned and slaved for six long hours. No pleasures did we see, In hopes that " college " would accept Dumb Bunnies such as we! At nine P.M. some washed, some knit, Some practiced water fights, Our days began with " dawn patrol " And closed with Senior lights. " Mikado " worries filled our lives, Rehearsals night and day, When all the town would flock to hear Fair Abbot with " P.A. " We presented our play, " The Amazons, " Rehearsals were filled with fright, But then our fears were all for nought, ' Twas a very successful night. [36] Fidelio and posture class And tumbling in the gym, Will linger in our mem ' ry when We sing the Parting Hymn. And so throughout the passing months We ' ve lived and worked and played United in a fellowship Whose ties can never fade. For work accomplished, goals achieved, We won our Senior rings, A trust that we will carry on Whate ' er the future brings. We ' ll not forget in years to come The bond that made us one, And ever mindful of that fact We ' ll say of our class " well done! " And it is true of every girl Who leaves the Abbot gate, She has " a fellowship of hearts To keep and cultivate. " [37] Ring Song Faith is inscribed in this circlet of gold — The faith in our lasting ideals; Truth and integrity, courage foretold In the knowledge each Abbot year seals. Hope is inscribed in this circlet of gold — The hope that each one may share Learning and love that all Abbot girls hold, And the bright torch of knowledge we bear. Love is inscribed in this circlet of gold — The love for our mother and friend, Tho ' mem ' ries may fade, hers never grows old, But sustains us and lives to the end ! — Janet Cooley Honor A, 1942 Mary Louise Bertucio Jane Adams Bishop Louise Clark Elizabeth Jane Fowler Barbara Alford Hill Edith Ninomiya Cum Laude Yvonne Bevier Janet Cooley Amelia Daves Hilton McLain Betty-Lou Monett Sylvia Peters Bettye Rutherford - Katherine Shaughnessy [38] Highlights of a War Year Each candle is an event, each event a part of Abbot life; each life important in form- ing the Abbot spirit. ' You are my Sunshine " " When do we eat? " Names, Novations, News spell opening days at Abbot. Both the sun and the welcoming committee beamed brightly upon the new girls as another wonderful year began. Diamond- shaped tags dangled from every girl bearing names with which it now seems we have always been familiar. The influx of the old girls next day added blue tags to the scene which was enlivened by squeals of delight, mad rushes, and fervent hugs. Draper, Sherman and Abbey were buzzing with activity, but Homestead lay in quiet repose — closed as a war-time measure. It still seems incongruous to see Miss Friskin and Miss Tuttle emerging from Sherman ! The annual new girl-old girl picnic was a gala occasion. Appetites were sharpened by the hike, and the tempt- ing array of food on the long tables quickly disappeared. Gathered to- gether under the great old tree we sang our favorite songs accordion-played by Anne and led by Molly. Some then trailed off " on a scavenger hunt while others hastened to the field for base- ball. It was a strenuous day, and yet by evening we were ready for more Invasion — September 19 2 [40] fun and frolic which were found at the party in Davis Hall to which old girls again escorted new. Not only new faces but also new customs had appeared with the open- ing of a new school year. To meet the shortage of help, each girl was as- signed a task in the dining room- setting the table, serving the meal, or clearing — and all year the duties were rotated according to a clever plan devised by our dextrous Miss Coolidge so that the load was evenly distributed. The " Dawn Patrol " was by far the most popular assignment! Another early morning innovation was the giving of the " News " in chapel on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings instead of on week nights in the dining room. The job fell, as usual, to underclassmen and one-year Seniors. You haven ' t really been at Abbot until you have faced this terror, onlv to find that it ' s fun! Seniors set the pace the first few days and then the regulars took over. To Yvonne and Miss Roth, all that is left of Q.E.D. for the present, goes the credit for the excellent quality of the news this year. Dawn Patrol News Prelude Corridor stunts lighted up several Saturday nights during the fall, and we laughed long and hard at the antics of Abbey, Sherman, and the various wings of Draper. Brains were wracked for ideas and then came the dash four flights up to find the neces- sary costumes. At Hallowe ' en the Day Scholars came through with what is said to have been one of the best entertain- ments ever. And we are not ones to quibble, for the Minstrel Show will not soon be forgotten. After the scramble for cider and doughnuts we relaxed on the floor to watch a skit entitled " A Teacher ' s Life " which was pre- sented by some " strange traveling players " who had just " happened " in. Abbot rolled in the aisles at the faculty ' s annual presentation; no more need be said. Doing Defense Deeds Diligently, we dedicated half of our Wednesday night study period to this form of war aid, and in little and big things the war claimed time which in other years has been spent in other ways. [41] Immobilized Besides being waitresses, buying war stamps, and wearing rayon stockings, we have had rigorous training in air raid drills with lieutenants, door holders, and special routes to our shelters. There we have sat surround- ed by black-out devices while our lieutenants checked up on shoes and coats. But our most important defense activities have come on Wednesday night when we studiously attended regular defense courses of our own choosing. In First Aid we learned how to treat injuries and to take care of victims of accident before the arrival of the doctor. This included knowl- edge and use of pressure points, arti- ficial respiration, treatment of shock, poisons, bandaging, splints, and the transportation of injured persons. The infirmary was the scene all fall of experimentation in Home Nursing. Abbot should produce many candi- dates for the Nurses Aid this summer with the expert bed making, tempera- ture taking, and general care of pa- tients which have been mastered. With the Red Cross drive in the new year for surgical dressings, the Home Nurs- Vim, Vigor and Victim ' Even edges! " [42] " It flapped its wings! " ' Alto Stratvs or Cirrus? " ing group turned to this very practi- cal and direct form of war aid. Motor Mechanics was a course in which we learned how to be grease monkeys. The mysteries of flat tires, Many hands, light icorh battery troubles, and automobile en- gines were unfolded before us and no longer loomed as unsolvable prob- lems. Our Airplane Spotting group learned to distinguish between P40, P39, Fly- ing Fortresses, Liberators, and other planes, and they put their knowledge to practical use by doing actual spot- ting for the town of Andover. On Saturday mornings during the spring they covered the spotting center for three hours, and once they enjoyed the thrill of spotting twenty-seven planes in half an hour ' s time. The Weather Class solved the mys- teries of the sky, clouds, and winds. They learned which clouds are nim- bus, which cumulus. They were taught to recognize favorable winds and to forecast thunderstorms. As weather predictors they should be invaluable aids to the airplane spotters. The " Protection-Production " Plant was conducted for the girls below the Senior-Mid Class. They [43] Rivals: " Rowley " and " Dick- " were taught the basic duties of air raid wardens and the rudiments of plane spotting. They made dolls and dressed them for children of coun- tries where toys are no longer made; they knit garments of all kinds and produced hand-sewn moccasins. A very complete and useful course in Nutrition was also given, in which some of the townsfolk also took part. In the present food emergency some knowledge of vitamins and energy foods was found to come in most help- fully. In still one more way did the Abbot family contribute to the war effort. Our blissful spring vacation was omitted, Christmas vacation was ex- tended, and Commencement moved up one week. Transportation prob- lems brought about the change since soldiers, sailors and marines had to reach their destinations first. Thus vacation days were forgotten, and we turned our eyes to books and learning. Then came a surprise! Free days were announced with no studies, no required sports, but just play all day. Faculty and students both benefited and " a good time was had by all. " Each Exercise Encourages En- durance was our pass word in sports this year. The annual Field Day on November 7 was the first important event in the athletic program, with contests between the Gargoyles and the Griffins in basketball, tennis, and hockey. The Griffins, with Dick Rich- ards as their captain and faithful G us once again backing the team, were one jump ahead of the Gargoyles in hockey. The Varsity claimed Mary Bentley, Honora Haynes, Janet Hitch- cock, Neder McMurray, Mary Jane Kurth, Hilary Paterson, Pat Petten- gill, Betty Reid, Bette Rowley, Pris- cilla Stevens and Joan Sweeney. ' Come out arid play, " Clark, Pearson, Peterson In basketball too the Griffins were the victors, Varsity here being Elinor Cahill, Ruth Goodall, Marjorie Ham- ilton, Louise Honnen, Ann Richards and Sally Spear. And the Griffins won one match of tennis doubles. However, the Gargoyles, led by Bette Rowley and Lister, won the tennis singles and one match of doubles. Molly Hubbard was again the champ- [44] ion, playing a beautiful game against Jean Replogle. In the minor sports Esther Smith won the archery and Molly the ping pong, both of them Gargoyles. How- ever, the victories of the Griffins in croquet by Ellie Cahill, in badminton by Joan Sweeney, and in deck tennis by Jo Bernardin. more than balanced these, and the day ended in a sweep- ing Griffin victory. One could hardly believe that the winter term was suddenly upon us, and when the snow offered opportuni- ties we had skiing classes and a Snow Field Day when potato races, fifty- yard dashes, both forward and back- ward, and an obstacle race were featured. The score came out a tie. But the emphases of the winter were gym and modern dance. The gym work was new to this generation of Abbotites, given to increase physical endurance. Exercises, military drill, and apparatus work kept us in good condition after the first few painful aftereffects had passed, and dance classes proved to be excellent " build- er-uppers " as well. Dance helped us too to be as graceful as and if possible ! If by means of dance, gym, and brisk walks each day, a girl was able to get in ten hours of exercise a week, she won forty points for her team and two " free " days during the s pring term. Eight hours a week offered twenty points. After this winter term of en- durance building we found we could do much more than we ever thought possible at the start of the season. This fact was brought home to us most forcibly at our Gym Demon- stration on April 9. Guests and fellow participants were amazed at the grace and skill which were exhibited, and we began to realize how much long, hard work had been going on behind closed doors. When the judges, imported for the occasion from Boston and Andover, announced their de- HOCKEY Griffins: Hardon, Reid, Peterson, Howard, E. McMurray, Haynes, Welles, M.

Almost the moment school opens a stream of girls heads for the music studios. No one escapes " voice testing. " From Miss Frisian ' s studio come weird sounds and sweet ones occasionally. Soon the Choir and Fidelio lists are posted and rehearsals begin. Strains of " Land of Hope and Glory " are heard between 4:40 and 5: 25 on Mondays and Fridays when Choral meets, followed by the more " experienced " voices of Fidelio. This year Fidelio decided it wanted an elected rather than an appointed president, and Jean Craig was chosen. The next excitement came with the announcement that Abbot was going to give " The Mikado " with 1 A. in the spring. The leads were chosen; we sang over the Finale of the First Act, and went on to our Christmas music. If we do say so ourselves we sang well at Christmas time when the organ went off pitch just before the Christmas service and we had to sing a cappella. After vacation we settled down to " The Mikado " and got it under con- THE FIDELIO SOCIETY President: Jean Craig Accompanist: Elinor Cahill !i fc ' fciite [48] trol, but not too rapidly by any means, for we had the Exeter concert in the offing as well. To our great dis- appointment that had to be can- celled because of transportation prob- lems. Rehearsals were much the same. Mr. Howe never could remem- ber Ellie Cahill ' s name on the first try : ' ' Lib — ah — Fran — ah — Elinor, ' ' and we never could find the place in the music, but we worked harder under pressure and got results. But April 16 was drawing danger- ously near, and we were measured for our Mikado costumes and wigs, had our joint rehearsals at Abbot and at P.A., dress rehearsal, and finally the two great nights of actual perform- ance. We were very proud of our leads: Alva Houston as Yum Yum, Anne Pearson as Pitti Sing, Betty Colson as Peep Bo, and Themis Sarris as Katisha. Then came the sad day when the Seniors retired from active member- ship in Fidelio and left their places for " New Fidelio. " We continued to practice once a week for the Com- mencement Concert and Rally Night, but how we envied those lucky under- classmen who had another year of Fidelio before them ! But Fidelio and Choral by no means constituted all of our musical activities. Sixteen members of Choir met regularly every Sunday morning and evening for rehearsals with Miss Friskin for our Vesper Service pro- grams. We had superior training and a wonderful time as well, although we nearly drove Miss Friskin to retire- ment because in spite of all her efforts we would not enunciate clearly! Abbot Activity Advisers Aid Ab- bot administration, these being the Student Government Association, bet- ter known as " Stu-G " , the Abbot Christian Association, and the Abbot Athletic Association. All are composed of students with one or two of the faculty as advisers. The Stu-G, under the guidance of " Pett " and the Student Council, dis- cussed at weekly meetings general citizenship problems and suggestions Mikado Three Little Maids [49] STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL Rutherford, Beckman, Bennett, Lindsay, Pearson, McLain, Jean Craig, Hogan, Hitchcock, Welles, Hour, Pettengill Absent: Hay ties, Hubbard, Kurth, Lchmann having to do with the betterment of the school, and results were reported at regular school meetings held in the chapel. Stu-G also appointed corridor and cottage proctors, assisted with citizenship ratings, took care of chapel absences and supervised morning study hall. Through the Council student thought and opinion could be reported officially to the faculty, and in this way the standards of our A.C.A. OFFICERS Hansen, Bennett, Peterson, Humphrey school life were kept high and under constant examination. The Christian Association consti- tutes another important part of our Abbot life. Through it are many worthy causes given financial assist- ance, such as the Hindman School in Kentucky, the American Red Cross, the Boston Community Chest, the Greater Lawrence Community Chest, the Lawrence Clinic, and the Golden Rule Foundation. Some of the high spots of the Christmas season are the frantic dressing of dolls, buying a " useful gift and a toy, " packing boxes and wrapping presents for Hindman and also for the Christmas Party for Andover children. There is a repre- sentative from each corridor on the A.C.A. Board, so that the Associa- tion ' s spirit of service is brought to everyone. There is also a group of girls who have attended the Northfield Confer- ence held during June each year at Northfield Seminary. The ideals of the Conference tie in very definitely with those of the A.C.A., and there- [50] fore the delegates to Northfield are a great help to the work of the Associa- tion during the school year. There are informal Northfield meetings in the rooms of different students on occa- sional Sundays at which all students are welcome. At the suggestion of Miss Tuttle and Themy, this year a room was designated as a place where anyone might go at any time for quiet and meditation. Another phase of our school life is presided over by the Abbot Ath- letic Association, with Honora as its leader. This year especially the A.A. A. has had a big job, for it has cooperated closely with the Department of Physi- cal Education in a greater physical fitness program brought about by the needs of the country in its war effort. The acceleration program, with its call for increased activity in the form of more strenuous walks, longer hours out-of-doors, and conditioning exer- cises, was greeted at first with groans and misgivings, but in good time everyone began to feel the benefits. An offspring of the A. A. A. is the " A " Society, composed of girls who MM " A " SOCIETY Sweeney, Pettengill, Howard, Damon, Hamilton Absent: Haynes, Hubbard, Lehmann have won two hundred and fifty athletic points and are entitled to wear the blue " A " .

The only visible indi- cation of the survival of the group was the production of " Artichokes for Dinner " and an occasional " A.D. S. tonight at 8:15 in Mrs. Gray ' s Studio " written on the black-board. Because of program pressure the meetings were infrequent and the annual A.D.S. chapel presentation was omitted. But in spite of this seem- ing lethargy, A.D.S. will long be re- membered by every member as a living organization. Couranters all know the lump-in- throat feeling when they are waiting for the fatal moment when Miss Sweeney says " Shall we vote on it? " and the thumbs up or down vote is fearfully cast. We remember the wonderful discussions we wandered into, the frantic two weeks before the deadline, and at last those lovely days in February and May when our product finally appeared in the mail- boxes.
