LIBRARY OF ABBOT ACADEMY No. mu My Scsi fUtooA £dUio t OF THE CIRCLE 1946 yeaAbaoJz oj Abbot Academy ANDOVER MASSACHUSETTS ISABEL MAXWELL HANCOCK DEDICATION For her Southern smile and warmheartedness which helped to smooth out many of the wrinkles of our school life; for her never flagging interest and under- standing; for boundless depths of energy and spirit, all of which have so enriched our years at Abbot, we, the Senior Class of 194£ , most fondly dedicate our yearbook to IVliss Hancock FACULTY anc MARGUERITE CAPEN HEARSEY A.B. Hollins: M.A. Radcliffe; Ph.D. Yale Principal In chapel when I would glance at the faculty seated together on the platform during the morning service in which we all took part, it would often occur to me how very much thev « t. added to our dailv life at Abbot. In the class- room where they extended their knowledge to us, on the sports field, and in the offices, I often marveled at their unending patience, genuine interest, and unfailing kindness. Often in the evenings we would go to their rooms where they would listen to our prob- lems and troubles, and in complete friend- liness give us the advice we so much needed. From that very first dav when we came to Abbot as timid Preps until the final great moment when we were ready to leave, as alumnae, the presence of the Abbot faculty filled us with a sense of security. And so as I sat in chapel glancing often at the members of the faculty and at the portraits of their predecessors on the walls around us, it seemed as though these earlier ones smiled down in commendation and in thankfulness that their work was being carried on by strong successors.

If meant a deep, inexpressible thankfulness — a silent happiness that could not have been put into words. . .and it meant too that I among thousands of other school girts was to be a senior in a world struggling to create and maintain the precious peace it had won.... As these thoughts run through my mind, I remember the changes which war brought to school. . . .1 remember the stairway rush when an air-raid warning sounded. . .the bus-less trips to Boston for " Twelfth Night " and " Macbeth " . . .the nights of bandage-rolling .. .and knitting ... .oleo-d and meat- less days. . .and abundance of " free " mail and V-mrw.il. . . wonderful, wonderful " free-days " to make up for the war- restricted Spring vacation when books were put away for twenty-four whole hours! . . .all these things and yet, noiv, they seem unimportant compared to that intangible thing which has made my life here of greater significance . . . .1 have learned so much more than Latin, chemistry or history . . .1 have learned not only to appreciate such things but to appreciate the inherent dignity of life, and of every human being. . . .Somehow, the half -thoughts and visions of the future which had come with me as a prep, have sharpened until they stand out clearly. . . until they have become a high star, a goal. . . . Above all, I have learned how to become a finer, more effective person, and to that person I must never fail to strive to remain true.

It seemed wonderful to go to Bos- ton to see Hamlet and other plays, and it was most impres- sive to take the places of the seniors at the table as they rushed off somewhere to spend the day. We shall never forget what a job it was to organize the ba- zaar but the goal inspired us to do our utmost. Our efforts were matched by the cooperation of the whole school. We still quiver remembering the mornings we sauntered up the aisle in chapel with knees shaking to give " the News. " Nevertheless, it was a member [36] Senior-Mids . . . of our " stunning " class who was chosen to be sculptured by the illustrious Madame Silver- cruvs. ■ The night of the Senior play when we were the guests of the Seniorsand marched into Davis Hall singing our class song, and wearing our lovely blue class sweaters, for the first time, it suddenlv came over us that soon they would be leaving us as graduates, and that made us very sad. As commencement time neared, we were solemnlv in- m itiated into the sacred confines of the Senior Parlor. We knew then that our very happy Senior Mid days were about over.

We helped the Seniors with their Christmas dolls for the Hindman Settlement, demon- strating versatility in the art of dressmaking! Going from dress- making to dramatics we were said to have displayed some skill on Stunt Night and to- gether with that of the Preps furnished laughs for the re- mainder of the school. We con- fess that we were mighty envious on the night of the Prom as we watched from the outside the upper classes having the time of their lives dancing.

It is through this or- ganization that we begin to learn the art of self-government. Student Gov- ernment collaborating with Miss Hearsev and a facultv committee has charge of the Rating System. The system encourages and rewards special effort in good citizenship. Through the able leadership of " Ginny " Finney, helpful improve- ments have been incorporated into our school life. It might well be said that the smooth running of the school is partly due to the success with which Student Government ex- ecutes its own program. Student Government prides itself in that it works with the adminis- tration. [■ ■ ] Abbot Christian Association The Abbot Christian Association is one of the best loved organiza- tions at Abbot. Its first program of the year is the festive fun-making Old Girl-New Girl party. During the year this group of students held three vesper services — conducted two morning chapel services — spon- sored the gift of the Christinas dolls for the Hindman Settlement. A Mer- rie Christmas party was given for a group of Andover Children — Santa Claus . . . shining tree . . . and gifts for all... The Red Cross Drive was carried out under the direction of A.C.A. with notable success. Baskets of fruit went to the Andover Old Folks Home. The Abbot Christian Association quietly binds together our efforts to help others. A.C.A.

They are seated around the big ma- hogany table listening either to Mrs. Reeves, their faculty advisor, or to Mr. Valz, their representative from the engraver who helped them lay out their vearbook. Later on, there appears Mr. Cole at their meetings who soon takes over the printing. Sometimes the table is littered with drawing paper, paste and scis- sors as the dummv vearbook grows from a dream to a reality. From all that material spread out on the table, an all inclusive year- book of life at Abbot was produced. [47] Abbot ' s " IOLANTHE PRINCIPALS " Sommer, Mastrangelo. Sullivan, Hogan, Power, G. Wright The choir is indeed devoted to its work which is under the direction of Miss Friskin. Two beautiful songs are sung each Sunday at vespers. They do not seem to mind the prac- tice time, for when the finished pro- duct is called for. the choir is readv to give a good imitation of angel voices blended together in harmony. The whole school appreciates the music the choir brings to us. Fidelio seems to be a lot of fun. especially this year, for instead of giving the two concerts with Exeter and Governor Dummer. exciting though these events may be. they joined up with Phillips Academy and presented a Gilbert and Sullivan " Tolanthe. " Every Yednesdav and Saturday the Abbot " chorus " would go tripping off to Phillips to rehearse with the men ' s chorus. Once Abbot had become used to the much louder noise the boys made in their singing, the girls let go, and gave plenty of competition. Fidelio was engaged in several other projects during the year; for example, the songs for the Christmas service which came the Sunday be- fore the holidays began. We shall never forget the lovely ' Shepherd Song " as sung by Helen Mastrange- lo, the only Prep member of Fidelio. Then, too. Fidelio took part in the commencement recital. These activi- ties served to ease the strain of the CHOIR Back Row: Broun, Sulliran, North, Goddard, Power, Hogan, Ross, Hughes Front Row: G. Wright, N, Barnard, L. (hirers.

" Whatever success Fidelio has achieved is gratefully ascribed to Mr. Howe, the director. Not every school chorus can boast so distin- guished a director as is Mr. Howe, who directs the great chorus of the famous Worcester Festival. The organizational duties which are involved in running Fidelio are taken care of by the student officers, Hope " Whitcomb, the president, and Mary Howe, the librarian. Dorothy King and Martha Morse are the accompanists.

Flowers, Potter, Hogan, President; Graf, (hirers, Kolins Abbot Dramatic Society has had a wonderful year. Who could ever for- get the wonderful parties in Mrs. Gray ' s apartment, and the gay cele- brations in the studio; long, hilari- ous, grim, inspired, depressed re- hearsals of Oscar Yilde ' s " The Im- portance of Being Earnest, " when everyone tried to become a profes- sional amateur. The play was lots of fun with manv memorable incidents connected to it by much laughter — enough so that it was an amusing play from the stand-point of both the cast and the audience. In everyone ' s opinion, " Friend Hannah " was one of the most suc- cessful Senior plays we have witness- ed. Remember how bewitching Luty was in her bonnet, and how utterly [50] heartbreaking was her performance as wife of the newly made King whom she renounced all claim upon in exchange for a lonely life. Laurie enacted a splendid King for Luty to renounce! The supporting players more than filled all requirements — Patty, Micky, Frannie, Louise, Pol- ly, Nancy, and all the others who took their parts so well. But what would we have done without our un- matchable, indefatigable Mrs. Gray to make us into what we were that night. The real success is Mrs. Gray ' s. At commencement - time Draper Dramatics presented " The Taming of the Shrew. " The gay comedy fitted in well with the festive mood of final ceremonies of the closing of school when we would all be leaving for the summer holiday. Royal Question A toast to Hannah [51] A.A.A.

" Come on Griffins ! " .... These are familiar cries that echo .hack from outdoor days at Abbot. Athletics are an important part of Abbot life. It is the goal of the Abbot Athletic Association to encourage interest in sports, and to uphold a standard of fine sportsmanship. For competition, the school is divided into two teams, the Gar- goyles and the Griffins. These teams engage in friendly rivalry all the year round from the first hockey game in October until the last base- ball is tossed out for the last game in June. On Field Day — in November and in May — the teams play hard to roll up points for their side. " Somebody has to win! " So we all enjoy the victory . . .

Throughout, there were very close games between the two teams. " When Field Day arrived the Griffins came out victorious but onlv after a hard fight was staged by the Gargoyles. After Field Day. the varsity team experienced a thrill when they went off in their snappy blazers to play in a hockey conference in Boston. This was " a first time " event in the historv of the Abbot Athletic Asso- ciation. The intricate techniques and skills of basketball were this fall demonstrated by a capable returnee. " Butch " Stevens, ' 44, who carried on until Miss Hunt, our regu- lar instructor, had recovered from an illness. With hard work both teams became proficient enough to give the rival cheering sections a lot to make a noise about. The season lasted on into the cold of earlv November.

On the afternoon of Field Dav in November there was a battle roval on the tennis courts. Miss Humes, perched high up in the referee ' s box, witnessed a match between " Mouse " Morse, Gargovle, and Marv Emerv, Griffin. It was a superb exhibition! Marv Emerv, Griffin, won the match. When the cold weather forced us indoors, the school was divided into two groups — modern dance and gym. Modern dance meant to some that thev were destined to become Martha i. Grahams, but to the realists the whole thing was confused with the matter of one ' s " figger. " For our winter ' s gym, we were in- troduced to " tumbling. " We did astonishing things such as we had 0-O-O-ed at when encountered un- der the Big Top. And there was preci- sion marching. We liked that too. During the war years riding was given up. But this session the nearby stables of the Rocky Hill Riding Academv were fitted out with some good mounts, and we enjoyed them. Brightly colored fall days found us on the trails, and as soon as spring was in the air and the " sign here for riding " slips appeared on the bulletin board, we were oft ' again into the flowering countryside. When the snow came we rushed to the ski room to prepare our skis for hard usage. The beginners were in- itiated to the sport on " suicide slope " in front of Sunset while the experienced ones dared Chapin ' s hill [55] and the more daring. Prospect hill. In the meantime the Seniors worked up their technique for Intervale when the moment should at last come. And we skated. The tennis courts would be flooded for us when the tem- perature was just right for smooth freezing. Sometimes for variety we went over to Rabbit Pond. Archery has been resumed now as a major sport. Many girls partici- pated in this new activity so that by Field Day. it was thrilling to watch the shooting, and wait to know whether the bull ' s-eves were scored for Gargoyle or Griffin!

The girls got into form pretty quickly once the daily practice be- gan, and they amazed the spectators by their speed, accuracy, and general prowess. It was a good show. When Spring came the rabid base- ball fans trotted out for " warming up " so as to be ready for the first practice. They would get very " tough " for the occasion and yell ' That ' s a-looking ' urn over " and " bat ' er up, kid, " for realism. Any- way, " Dem Bums " couldn ' t have received a more loyal welcome than the Griffins and the Gargoyles gave our teams when the games got goin ' .
