Working for a Better Future War Service classes have taken on a greater importance this year. They were undertaken willingly, for there is the prevailing urge to " do something. " In First Aid victims were bandaged enthusiastically and thor- oughly, slings were slung neatly and square knots tied. Week-end themes developed from the wide range of possibilities in Miss Elvedt ' s problems. Meanwhile surgical dressings overflowed the infirmary basement, and the knitters seemed to be outfitting a regiment. Members of the Child Care group gladly returned to their not-too- distant childhood, becoming regular hellions between the ages of two and six. Vitamins in our diets were carefully checked and rechecked by the members of the Nutrition Class. We expect them to announce the discovery of a new vitamin c 2 3 which is contained in carrots, cabbages, and cod-liver oil. In sewing, needles were threaded with great energy and willingness. Some learned how to " sew a fine seam " and adorable outfits for children were turned out. There is still a stampede and then, after a moment of silence filled with sheer delight, the cries of " P-48 " or " No, B- ' -24 " rise to the Sewing Child (arc Knitting First Aid [14

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.

through War Service Groups heavens. These avid aircraft spotters wait all day long for the sweet throb of airplane motors. The Mechanical Drawing Class, looking quite professional with T-squares, drawing boards, and triangles, floundered through the interpretation of orthographic drawing. Columbus made no discovery as exciting as our own triumphant discovery of a " hidden line " ! We worked hard at these classes, knowing that through them we were helping or shall help the war effort in some way. Although our achievement now seems small and insignificant, it was a starting point. Discussion Groups were a source of much enlightenment. Our knowledge of the facts of the war were strung into a comprehensive pattern. Meeting in small groups as we did, we were privileged to ask more questions than we could ask of lecturers on the platform. In these discussions the ideas presented by outside speakers became clarified, in some cases, or when they conflicted a definite reason for this clash of opinion was understood. The discussions, we feel, were an important and necessary part of our school life, for we must understand the world in which we live in order to work for a better future.
