■ THE 1945 CIRCLE yearbook ot Abbot Madefy Mdovev, massac et- Wteno DEDICATION Walter E. Howe Kate Friskin In these years of war and necessity, it has been Miss Friskin and Mr. Howe who have kept ns mindful of our cultural heritage. They have given the best of their work to us in order that we might better enjoy and find in- spiration from our school life. It is through their wisdom and understanding that we have been encouraged to be creative. This encouragement has made us discover a part of ourselves that we never knew existed. YYe have learned to appreciate and, in this way. have become aware of the beautiful, as well as the necessary, things of life. Thus it is that with all humility and deep love, we, the Class of 1945. dedicate our Yearbook to Miss Friskin and Mr. Howe. It is many years since we first came to Abbot, and as time goes by, we recognize in it it ' s full strength and meaning. The roots of our school are buried deep, and we see in them the long history and rich tradition to which we have fallen heir. We could be likened to the young leaves of the mother tree, for were we not privileged to be a part of it for a little while, and to draw upon it for strength and growth? The trunk is perhaps the most important part of a tree, and thus, it could represent our intellectual life. Through guidance and deep love the best in each one of us has been brought out. We have gained in purpose and in steadfastness. We discovered the course we wished to follow and were given every chance to continue in this direction. And then, since our roots and trunk were sound, many branches, repre- senting other interests and activities, came into view. There have been ma- terial things to show for this action. We have created, we have interpreted, and we have produced results worthy of our efforts. We also needed food for growth, and we found a wealth of air, sunshine, and happiness to feed our bodies as well as our minds. And so, Abbot has provided for us all that is necessary for any develop- ment. We came to school uncertain and unsure of ourselves: but now we leave it confident and strengthened. We feel we are better able to meet the great demands which this confused and tragic world must make upon us. PROLOGUE MARGUERITE CAPEN HEARSEY A.B.

(Oh! little did we know!!) And by the time we ' d relayed our- selves to the Inn, we were more than ready for the first of those many divine, enormous meals. Then Cranmore!! All of Miss Carpenter ' s assurances back in the comfortable Claremont flew out of our heads. We were weak! Jaws dropped, goggles were ad- justed, and some frantically bought tickets for the " half-way mark. " But it looked cruel and wicked! They certainly loved us that day — sprawling forms clut- tering up the slope and sitz-marks dotting the trail.

And Thursday morning Miss Hearsey saying that she " ' had meant to ski, but the snow and wind were just too much! " At least the storm was a blessing to somebody! The trip back was hyste rical : bridge again, making and frantic learning of our songs, and the mad rush to get off the train. No, we never will forget Intervale !

BIG THREE ASKS: WILL HERMIT MAKE ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE? The official spokesman for the Big Three announced today that the Conference has placed an appeal in Theater Arts to hermitess Esther Bufferd, requesting her not to forego her annual appearance in civilization. In past years she has abandoned her cave in Lonely Valley only at the spring equinox, leaving a trail of poetry and paintings behind her. The Conference feels that her cul- tural information will prove invaluable. Last March recluse Bufferd was quoted as saying, " Theater Arts is my only communication with the outside world. " FLASHES FROM ABROAD Reported by Correspondent Boynton Today, in Sing Lo, China, history was made as Miss Cynthia Smith, that patient lady from Wellesley, Mas- sachusetts, converted her 1500th Chinese woman. At the ceremony honoring Miss Smith was an Abbot class- mate of hers, Miss Holly Welles, another missionary, whose courageous work in bringing musical and the- atrical art to the Chinese has been hailed from all quarters. FLASH: Miss Elizabeth Dickerman, after digging for fifteen years in Crete, has unearthed the original snake goddess. Wise men from all centers of learning are rush- ing to see this famous wonder. LATEST NEWS FROM THE PEACE CONFERENCE Reported by Boynton President Paterson and Secretary of the Navy Two- mey admit that they are disturbed about the recent revolt staged in Guatemala. The instigator of this revolt is Ami Persson. Heated discussions are being held at the White House. Paterson is setting a new precedent by insisting that she will run for only one term. The soul retainer of Law and Order at the Conference are the hysterical remarks of Robbins the Cabinet jester. THE WORLD OF SPORTS A list of the United States Olympic teams for 1965 was released this morning. Women seem to be in the lead. Two well-known sports women, Mary Taylor and Sally Spear, took the honors in basketball. Barbara Ball is the trainer of these two girls. Both of them got their start at Abbot Academy. The track team is well taken care of, for it consists of Joan Holdsworth, who will be re- membered as the young lady who broke the records at the IT2A Meet. In a furiously played singles match, Andree Luce conquered a jinx and won the U. S. tennis nationals. Miss Luce played a fast, loose game, which might be called the most spectacular of her brilliant career. Yesterday afternoon at Falling Downs Helen Xorris won the annual steeplechase. The race was close, until Miss Xorris, abandoning her mount, cleared the last hedge to come in several hundred yards ahead of her closest competitor. Advertisements Have you lost your ring?

STUMPED IN NEW YORK Expert Sally Drew Leavitt of " Information Please, " known to thousands as S.D.L. , last night failed to answer a question put to her for the first time since she joined the program five years ago. To Miss Ruth Lazarus, Cincinnati schoolmarm, goes the distinction of being the one who asked the unanswerable question. After Shirley Sommer, master of ceremonies, read the famous question, a tense, expectant silence fell on the audience and was broken only by guest expert Andrea Lyons ' appropriate comment, " Whew! " SUICIDE BECAUSE OF THWARTED LOVE This afternoon the body of Miss Ann Bushnell was found lying on the Abbot circle, where she landed after leaping from the second step of Draper Hall, fatally breaking her neck. The direct cause of the suicide is not known, but it is believed that it is because of unfortun- ate love, since recently a malicious young woman, Patty Patton, stole Miss Bushnell ' s man. POWER PLANT EXPLODES AT PIGEON COVE A violent explosion rocked Cape Anne last night when the power plant here was completely destroyed. The cause of the explosion is not yet known, but it is believed that an assistant physicist, Barbara Beecher, might have had something to do with it. She is known as the " mad scientist ' and has been working alone on an experiment with a generator and a voltometer. The only casualties were Judy Gage and Suzanne Leland. The explosion is being thoroughly investigated by super- sleuth Josephine Bernardin.

Although it is not easy to watch the Seniors go off to Intervale and Baronial, your spirit has never wavered, and your patience has been an inspiration to us all. You already took your first steps toward the cherished goal in your Prep and Junior years, but this year has been differ- ent, for you have already begun to feel more like a class. You have received your class sweaters, written your songs and received the Senior Parlor. While we were at Intervale you had your brief moments as leaders of the school, and you exper- ienced a little of what you will have to do next year. We know what it is to be underclassmen and will never forget the thrill which accompanied our slow realization that we no longer had a Senior I t Floor Old Wing: Fryling, Graf, Sonne, P.

We remember Kow we used to wonder if we ' d ever be Seniors. We envied them with their many privileges. Yet we kind of fretted a little at all the Senior duties we would be undertaking. How awe- stricken we were when the Seniors talked over the heavy assignments at dinner time, and daytime would bring them carrying a preposterous number of books around. " Notice in the Senior Parlor " always aroused our curiosity. Don ' t worry, Jun- iors and Junior-Mids, you ' ll be Seniors before you know it, and we envy you, for your best years are yet to come.

We often felt left out of things and looked on enviously at such events as the Senior Prom and the departure for Intervale while we were taking our exams. Draper Hall was somehow overwhelming. Outside of meals and mail, it seemed to mean only the front office where continual typing took place. It was the building where " The Seniors " lived.

Hodges The Student Coun- cil, made up of repre- sentatives of each class, of the Athletic Association, the Chris- tian Association, and the Student Government officers, meets every Wednesday to discuss any changes that might be made and any questions that have been brought up. It superin- tends Sunday night suppers, chooses corridor proctors, helps with nomina- tions for class officers, and is an im- portant part of the Rating Committee. By working with the faculty in many matters, the students and faculty are brought closer together and are able more purposefully to understand each other. As a result of these weekly meetings we were allowed to wear lipstick to the An- dover-Exeter game! We certainly felt wonderful when our football heroes stood gazing at us with their mouths hanging open while we proudly climbed to our seats in the grandstand. [40] A.C.A., as always, holds its important position as one of the main organizations of Abbot. It has done an excellent job this year with Holly Welles as its competent president. The Vesper Services, headed by the students, have been most enlightening. During one of them all the Xorthfield girls gave us a clear and concise picture of the conferences held in June. According to custom, each Senior dressed a doll for the Hindman Settlement, and they were packed up with other presents in time for Christmas. The Christmas Party turned out a grand success with full attendance. Each child present, with great enthusi- asm, received his qj her gifts from Biz Marsh who made a wonderful Santa Claus. The A.C.A. meetings after Sunday night supper were abolished this year. To replace them, members of the board have taken charge of the week-day chapel ser- vice on such days as Columbus Day and Lincoln ' s Birthday. A.C.A. sponsored the Red Cross War Fund Campaign and we can say with pride that Abbot contributed 100%. . Journalism at Abbot has been flourish- ing this year, as never before. One was first aware of the change when a huge sign appeared on the bulletin board ad- vertising THE NEW BLUE COURANT. Sally had a particularly harassed look about her, and one could hear her mumbl- ing about deadlines, going to press and all the other jargon of the literary world. Then the day arrived when Courant ap- peared in our mailboxes, and Sally ' s harassed look was replaced by one of pride as she lovingly fondled her product. And Courant has changed. There are more stories, and better ones, with wonderful illustrations, as well as an enlarged staff. We, of the Yearbook board, were equally busy, trying to produce what we hope will be one of the best yearbooks that Abbot has ever had. We have had difficulties getting our materials and films, and there is always the problem of finding extra time. But it has all been worth the effort, and it is with great pride that we say that we were on the Board of the Circle for 19-45. COURANT BOARD Paterson, Fuller, .V. Thomas, Leavitt, C.

Stone 41] Abbot is trying to contribute her share to the war effort, as she has been for the past three years. In- stead of the airplane spotting and Red Cross and nutrition classes given last year, we have knitting and sewing classes on Wednesday evening from eight to nine. At the present time there is an urgent need for knitted cloth- ing. These classes are for different coun- tries such as Czechoslovakia, France, Great Britain, Russia and Holland. The most interesting class seems to be that called " The World Today, " which makes a point of studying various sub- jects of national interest. Each month, this group of girls, helped by Miss Hear- sey, Miss Roth, and other members of the faculty, holds an open forum in Davis Hall. The subjects that have been dis- cussed are the election this fall, the race problem, and Germany after the war. These forums have been popular and there are lively discussions after the talks. The Saturday evening programs have often supplemented these forums, so a very clear knowledge of world affairs is gained. Cynthia Smith has done a wonderful job with the news, having taken almost complete charge. Three times a week in chapel a Senior-Mid gives us a brief ac- count of the world news of the day. On April 28 nine representatives of this group went to Boston to take part in a discussion on Trade Relationships in the Post War World. This meeting was spon- sored by the United Nations Association, and eighteen prep schools around Boston took part. Through these war service groups, we have come to feel that we are making an important contribution to the war effort. " But it doesn ' t phase me. Where ' s Primpy ' s knitting? [42] ' Now that ire ' re settled the problems of the world. ' But the firsts- haven ' t been served yet! " In this past year, we at Abbot have been most fortunate in having many gifted men and women help us shape our thoughts and opinions. Vespers on Sunday evenings have been nothing less than in- spiring. We shall always remember men such as Dr. Cleland, Dr. Calkins and Mr. Baldwin, not only for their keen humor and presentations, but also for their in- sight into the deep problems of life and their clear interpretations of a number of Biblical passages. Our Saturday evening programs have brought many speakers and artists to Abbot. We have obtained a better knowl- edge of the arts through such programs as Spanish dancing, Chinese and English theater, dramatic interpretations, and concerts by distinguished musicians. And, of course, we will never forget Miss Friskin ' s recital, one of the most eagerly awaited events of the whole year. Our comprehension of the world events has been increased by such excellent speakers as Mrs. Paul Robeson, Mrs. F. M. Taylor, and Mr. William Averitt. We were particularly fortunate in hearing Miss Margaret Walker read us some pas- sages from her own poetry, which brought us greater understanding of the Negro and his problems. All of these people have contributed greatly to our prospective, and we feel indebted to each one of them. They have provided us with many searching thoughts and have given us a wider appreciation of our world and its opportunities. With their experience and ability to guide us we feel ourselves better equipped to meet the demands of the future. [ 43 CHOIR Back Row: .V. Kay, Lyons, Kurth, Redman, Milne, Fuller, Stegner Front Row: N, Barnard, Lewis, Ross, Power, Roynton, Wright, M. Sommer Absent: Welles, Rodgers We shook when we had our voices tested for Fidelio by Miss Friskin and Mr. Howe. Then we waited for the list to appear on the bulletin board, and there were the usual exclamations, " Oh, I can ' t bear it. How did she get in? " But we really began to feel at home after the 1 first rehearsal, especially when Mr. Howe enforced his deadline ultima- tum. We chose Barbara Ball as our presi- dent, and Mary Jane Kurth proved to be an excellent accompanist. Instead of the Gilbert and Sullivan opera with Phillips we had concerts with Governor Dummer and Exeter. After the rehearsals for Christmas carols were over, we really set to work. The corridors of Draper re- echoed all winter long to strains of " Braid the Raven Hair " and the " Merry Widow Waltz. " Our concert with Governor Dum- mer was a great success, any way you want to look at it. The boys entertained us royally, and we all had a good time. We let Exeter do the travelling for the next concert, and they arrived to set up a particularly high standard for future con- certs. We wouldn ' t have missed this year of Fidelio for anything, although we don ' t think it will miss us too much next year, judging by the sounds coming across the circle from New Fidelio. FIDELIO Barbara Ball, President: Mary Jane Kurth, Accompanist; Martha Ann Boynton, Librarian [44] " And just what would you like? " The neighborly spirit One of our most interesting Saturday night programs this year was the presen- tation of three one-act plays by some up and coming actresses in the Junior and Junior-Mid classes. A.D.S. had their eyes open and undoubtedly were framing ideas about the future. Miss Strickland, as director, receives special merit for her work and very favorable results. In order of appearance the plays were Courtin ' ( ' hristina, The Neighbors and The Clod. We will never forget the agony we endured when we were praying the Union soldiers would not discover the Confederate hero; or the final tense moment just before the gun went off! Courtin " Christina provided some won- derful comedy, and the surprising Irish brogue impressed us all. The Neighbors was equally enjoyed. Great was the curiosity of the rest of the school when during the preceding weeks we would walk by the Tiffin or Rec Room and hear strange noises issuing forth. However, we were soon able to put two and two together, because every so often there was written on the blackboard in conspicuous letters, " Neighbors. ..Tiffin Room at 2:30, " or the like. The fact that every so often someone was not at sports because of play rehearsal also gave us a clue. At any rate the final productions were a great success and were highly appreciated by the many onlookers in Davis Hall. " What ' s your trouble, mister? " [45 ABBOT DRAMATIC SOCIETY Bushiull, Graf, Marsh, Esther Bufferd, President: Hogun, Van Clere, Bentley, Welles Bush continually putting up her hair: Holly getting Biz out of the mess she ' s made of her knitting; over in the corner Bee learning to knit on bobby pins; Hap- py so absorbed in her book that she for- gets her cues; Barbie Graf concentrating on her four lines (and we mustn ' t forget her dog ' s bark); and Pete and Esther in- tently listening to Mrs. Gray give them a few pointers on their scene together. . . yes, out of this conglomeration came Moorborn, one of the finest plays that has ever been produced by A.D.S. None of it could have been done without the skill and patience of Mrs. Gray, and to her we owe our thanks. Of course artists tem- peraments will clash, and there have been many times during the year that we could have quietly wrung each other ' s necks. But somehow we managed to get over the crucial points without any drastic hap- penings. Yes. A.D.S. has put up with a lot of shenanigans from us this year, but after all is said and done, it has all been loads of fun. It is the general opinion that after a play the club just dissolves, but that is not so. Meetings are held on every other Fri- day, and of course there is a gala party whenever the occasion calls for it. The spirit that exists in this small society and the companionship it fosters are enough for three or four societies, and we hope that it shall always be that way. Morbidness and old maids The " Bio Three ' [46] Before the wood " But I need to be loved! " A strange now-you-see-it, now-you- don ' t wood; an impish, unpredictable old man; a cast ranging from a bored socialite to a matronly old woman; put it all to- gether, mix it up and you ' ve almost got the plot of the Senior play, Dear Brutus. Of course, a plot wouldn ' t be a good plot without a point, and the point of this one was — a second chance. The rehearsals were lots of fun. Besides learning lines and watching for cues, there was the usual knitting, gossiping, writing letters, and an occasional would-be-critic intently listening and voicing opinions about the progress, backward or forward, of the play. It didn ' t seem possible on March 17 that the day was really here. The panic of missing cues and forgetting lines was evi- dent — but need I go on? The play was a great success under the wonderful leader- ship of Mrs. Gray. It was she who led the cast (and audience) victoriously through, managing to keep her wits about her in spite of the mysterious wood and it ' s odd occupants. Art has been thriving this year under the able guidance of Miss Gay and Mrs. Morgan. Mrs. Morgan holds forth on Saturday morning with her " abandoned pupils. " There have also been many in- teresting exhibits at the John Esther Art Gallery. Do you see four hands? [47] ABBOT ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION COUNCIL Back Row: . .

' The Year of Sports Hockey this year broke in a new teach- er, Miss Macdonald, who proved to be a great success. Dressed like us in dainty feminine costume of longs and jacket, she was taken for another girl more than a hundred times. But she was not the only thing hockey broke in. Sally Allen ' s teeth and entire visage suffered losses at the furious onslaught of the Gargoyles. How- ever, it was one of the best hockev seasons in years, and there was great speculation as to who was going to win on Field day. After a feverish game and much roaring from the sidelines, the Griffins captured the final honors. The Gargoyles however have won steadily throughout the year and are nothing daunted by one defeat. Next year will find them fresh and flushed with new aspirations against the Griffins. GARGOYLE HOCKEY TEAM Lyons, Kurth, F. Broun, Fisher, Sears, Graf, Briimback, Mills, Leuvitt, Bonne, J. Mitchell, Lazarus Basketball ' ' carried on as usual " with only the average number of casualties. We find that it takes a few brains, too, to play this game called basketball. What " The sun is a-shining! ' GARGOYLE BASKETBALL TEAM Malotf, hunt, Norris, Mitamura, M. J. Hodges, M. BarreU Taylor, 50] GRIFFIN HOCKEY TEAM Derby, Finney, Helhreg, M.

GRIFFIN BASKETBALL TEAM Karelitz, Ball, Dorsel, Goddard Marsh, Spear, Jackson with pivoting to the left, and throwing to the right, underhand not overhand, left hand not right hand, and backwards not forwards, the ball was lucky if it landed within thirty yards of its intended destina- tion. But with a little practice and a few simple exercises, we soon became quite proficient at making baskets, and looking one way and throwing the other. This is a very tricky game and thrilling to watch. One would never realize the long hard hours of practice that have gone into per- fecting the ease and speed with which the plays were executed. Tennis this year featured quite a few up-and-coming stars. Our professionals practiced feverishly, perhaps too energeti- cally, for when Field Day came around, they seemed to be incapacitated, so the singles match was postponed. The excel- lent doubles matches, however, made up for that lack. The war has hit the tennis people hard in the guise of the Victory Ball. It looks like a tennis ball, feels like a baseball, and acts like a hunk of lead. However the champs did very well, even with this handicap. Sports At long last a pathetic little snowflake ventured into the neighborhood of Miss Carpenter, and we all dashed to the ski- room, slapped a little wax on the old boards, and were out on " Suicide Slope " before that flake ever reached the ground . But we didn ' t have to wait long for some real snow, and when it came it really did. Th ere were afternoons when we had to shovel to the ski-room before we could get our skis, and there were also times when we would vainly try to do a stem turn with the snow around our waists. A Gar- goyle-Griffin competition was held on the hockey field, the most spectacular fea- tures of which were the potato race and the backward race. It was obvious that the yogi certainly had nothing on us at Abbot. Strive as they will they could never have equalled the peculiar positions that we attained that afternoon. It is odd how quickly one can completely entangle himself in skis and poles and snow, but how long it takes to get out. However, we finally found ourselves skiing over and across tufts of green grass, so we turned to gym and dance. We thought we were in condition, but Mary Taylor, Captain of the Gargoyles Phyllis Hardon, Captain of the Griffins [52] Holly Welles, Griffin Song Leader Mary Jane Kurth, School Song Leader Nancy Stone, Gargoyle Song Leader our aching. muscles soon told us otherwise. Many a groan was heard before we could again sit down in peace. But soon we were shinnying up the ropes and leaping grace- fully (?) in dance with the greatest of ease. The Spring Demonstration came all too soon, and the audience hardly recognized their Suzy doing all those impossible things. " Why my Suzy couldn ' t be doing that — but it certainly looks like her. " Baseball in the spring could have helped out the Dodgers with the experts it produced. Speed balls and curves and long home runs could be seen every after- noon. Many a sore finger and sore head were suffered before we could finally stand up to bat without quaking and in the field without dreaming. The tennis professionals once more took to the courts. Our track stars closely resembled the Olympics with their jumps, their runs, and their flying disci. We were all amazed to watch the latter sailing through the air with apparent disregard for the laws of gravity. Yes, this year we have had fun, and without knowing it we have contributed vitally to the great future of a strong, healthy nation living in a world of peace.
