basketball one of the chief excite- ments of the fall. 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.

Sports at Abbot During the hockey season the teams worked hard to learn new pointers. 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. Even though they shivered and shook the players made GARGOYLE HOCKEY TEAM Dimmit, Sears-, Graf, Barrell, Whitiomb, Hoc an, Wallis, Gillen, Mills, Bourne, E.

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!
