This year has been different. It is set apart from other years, for it has been a war year in which victory or defeat have hung in the balance. It has also been a year in which we have begun to realize the part we must play in the rapidly changing world in which we are soon to take out- places. Materially we have been comparatively untouched by the war. We still have the neces- sities and manv of the luxuries of life; vet our thinking, our speaking, and our writing have been moulded bv todav ' s events. We face an un- known future the verv mvsterv of which dares us to fashion it into something finer and greater than the world has ever seen. Now is only the beginning. Tomorrow we go forth with a better understanding and a fuller comprehension of the great work which must be ours to do. We go on to the mastery of a forbidding and formidable future with this challenge to guide us: " . . .turn your undying face To where the future, greater than all the past, Is swiftly, surely preparing for you. "

Because she welcomed us and helped us in our first and hardest months at Abbot: because no trouble of ours is too small to lie unnoticed or forgotten by her: because she is never too busy to give us clear advice and good counsel: because she has made a double contribution to our life at Abbot, stimulating the growth of our minds and spirits as well as our bodies: and finally because she has given us sympathy and understanding in abundance, we dedicate the Yearbook of the Class of 1944 to MARY CARPENTER

" £ Ue into- fyHdertitatidUut " Here at Abbot we have been most fortunate to have the opportunity to live and work in peace. Here we can reach for new goals and discover broader horizons. In a world of suffering and misery we are among the favored; we still are free; we still possess " life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. " But if we disregard the responsibilities inherent in these precious rights, if we use these privileges callously or indifferently, we shall pay for our neglect even more dearly than we are now. Here we have begun to understand what our responsibilities must be. The Student Government is one field in which we tentatively exercise these new-found obligations. We are learning self government, how to live with people, how to understand their weaknesses and to sense their potential strength. The Christian Association has shown us a practical way of helping others less fortunate, and the Athletic Association in strengthening us physically is building up reserves which will make us better able to carry out the tasks which lie ahead. Likewise our war service groups, together with the other extra-curriculum activities which we enjoy here are giving us the practical training and the appreciation which we will need if we are to take our places in a democracy which is fighting for its very ex- istence. We have been well-guided along the difficult path to wisdom and maturity, and as we stand now at the threshold of adult life, we are grateful to the faculty for helping us to " enter into understanding.
