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.

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

Working for a Better Future These five organizations have provided outlets for further ventures into the fields of art, literature, and drama which will rise to greater prominence in the years to come. Courant has presented its material vividly and well; alive, swift sketches have increased interest and amusement. This is one of the bi-annual miracles of the school year. A.D.S. presented scenes from Victoria Regina when we were swiftly projected into the atmosphere of plush and marble-topped tables. We felt it was one of the best per- formances A.D.S. has ever given. The Choir has earned our respect and gratitude for their wonderful singing at vespers. And each year we marvel at their courage and endurance, when they arise at 5:00 to sing Christmas carols in the cold, cold morning of the day we depart for vacation. Fidelio sang long and hard, practicing for the concert with Governor Dummer Academy. After that snatches of Gilbert and Sullivan permeated the air as the two per- formances of ' The Pirates of Penzance " came nearer and nearer. Members of Fidelio became real " slaves to duty. " Last of all, the Yearbook Board has struggled with people, places and events. We hope that we have presented this Abbot year as fully as priorities would allow!
