and developing ideals of fair play Griffins, the Gargoyles won the competitive gymnastics. Tumbling too was included in the winter sports. Somer- saults over one, two, three, four, and five ( ?) people, merry- go-rounds, and headstands amazed us. We all have a very soft spot in our hearts for those on the bottom of the pyra- mids. Spring sports went too swiftly. We seemed hardly to have begun them when they were finished. The baseball teams looked like professionals with their hits into th e far field and their long slides home. Each team played hard for its side, encouraged by the enthusiasm of the two captains. With the invaluable aid of Lister and Gus Jr. respectively, the Gargoyle and Griffin leaders saw their teams safely to the end of the year and the final award of the Shield. Work- ing with them, the cheer-leaders gave us songs with vigor and vitality to help the teams along. The " A " Society is made up of girls who have worked long and steadily at sports and walks, and have reached the goal of two hundred and fifty points. Those who are privi- leged to wear the " A " have a real sense of achievement. Sports this year have taken on a new seriousness, and a new purpose. More than ever before we recognize the need for strong bodies well-equipped to answer to our bidding. Baseball G,p, Tumbling [ 20 ]

" Qo. QvOU to. A a Ue Jtututf " We feel that we have truly " entered into understanding " here at Abbot. We shall need all of this understanding when we leave the familiar ways and faces, the planned and well-ordered life we have found here. It is hard to break from the smooth, well-worn paths, and it is even harder to break out new trails. This is the first real step we have taken alone into the complicated business of living. It is a moment of hesitation, perhaps of doubt, but it is pregnant with the promise of fulfillment. Now we are more self-reliant than we have ever been before. The training which we have received here is ours to draw upon, according to our individual needs. W T e have received a set of high standards; we have had given us ideals of courage and endurance; we know how to face difficulties, to see the unpleasant as well as the pleasant with clear, steady eyes. All these we have to help us live better and more nobly. We go forth to conquer, with an eagerness to plunge into the struggle. We go forth with a buoyant step and high hopes. But we leave with a feeling of poignant regret. We know others will follow us. We know that more and more will come. But we wonder if it will be the same. We wonder if they will experience in their last year all that we have felt and we hope that at the end of their Abbot days they too will find the same gateway to " nobler living " which we have found.
