Tr aining for a Better Future with Student STl ' DEXT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL Hack Row: Travis, Hinrichsen, Nicholas, Hitchcock, Hamilton, Hon ncii. Spear. Second Row: Berlucio, Hubbard, Damon, Van Cleve, Col son. Front Row: Bentley, Finney, . . Brown, Pierce The Student Government Council has played a very active part in our school life. It has been an invaluable link be- tween the faculty and the students. With quiet efficiency it has instituted new ideas and changes. The bulletin board where notices, formerly made at school meetings, are placed, has been a time saver and a very helpful reminder each day. And other changes have been made. No longer do we listen to symphony concerts in Boston with wan and pallidly artistic faces. Now there is the bright bloom of Helena Rubinstein or Elizabeth Arden on our lips, and our morale has soared. In early fall and late spring we wander without stockings the ways of Andover. Seniors may lunch at the Andover Inn on Saturdays if they have the ready cash. Faculty and student tables have been used at Sunday meals. As a group of our own representatives the Student Govern- ment has made these changes. The Council is our executive body — the center around which revolves our school life. The Christian Association has also been busy. The services on Sunday night have been changed to include more music. The Christmas Party was again very successful and very strenuous. Any girl who has ever attended it has perfected to a high degree the art of catching two beanbags and a basketball at the same moment. At Christmas the Old Rec Room blossomed into a toy shop with all shapes, sizes and descriptions of dolls. There was everything from bouncing, [12]

Government, A.C.A. and A.A.A. blond, blue-eyed babies in pink and white to startling rag dolls in plaid suits. The A.C.A. Board was kept busy wrap- ping and tying up packages until almost the hour of depart- ure for vacation. This spring the Red Cross Campaign was very successful, and Abbot helped to send the Andover quota over the top. Spring housecleaning uncovered old books or new and unneeded books for Greek Relief or the U.S.O. Most important of all, this year the A.C.A. chapel services have left a deep and profound impression which we shall never forget. The talks about Northfield interested us intensely, and Northfield will certainly have a large Abbot delegation this year as a result. Some unusually good speakers at vespers have added variety and stimulated our interest in hitherto unexplored fields. One of the most out- standing occasions was that on which a discussion was held between a priest, a rabbi, and a Protestant minister. Repre- sentatives from Germany, Belgium, and China were note- worthy among our vesper service speakers. The squad walks decided on by the A.A.A. have left us with hardened muscles and the beginnings of a star track team. Because of the number of girls filled with ambition and the love of walking, the points have had to be rearranged. The cherished shield now hangs in the New Rec Room, tantalizing Gargoyles and Griffins alike. The Athletic Asso- ciation has given us this year new enthusiasm and spirit for sports.
