4tn The year: a series of records, a collection of memories, gathered to- gether in this record album — our yearbook. PRESENTED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF THE 1 9 5 CIRCLE ABBOT ACADEMY, ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS DEDICATED to MISS ANNA ELIZABETH ROTH Miss Roth will be remembered by the Class of 1950 for her constant and vital influence on our work; for her thought-provoking history classes; for her seldom seen, but rewarding smile; and finally, for the start which she gave us as Seniors toward finer college work. Through all these things she has won our greatest admiration and it is to her that we express our appreciation by dedicating to her this, our record album of Abbot memories. Every record needs backing, and this our sponsors, the faculty, pro- vided. To them, our thanks. We hope that this record album sings to them, as to us, the music of the year. MISS HEARSEY Miss Hearsey ' s advice and encourage- ment is ever present — her prayers in chapel, full of deep truth; private con- ferences, in which we comprehend so little of all she must consider; her friendli- ness and smiling cheerfulness; the homey coziness of Sunset. Many of our memories are linked with thoughts of Miss Hearsey — her sportsmanship, vitality, warmth, and wisdom. MISS SWEENEY So often when burdened with anxiety and problems, we are guided by Miss Sweeney ' s sage hand. Never too busy to listen, to understand, and to aid, she seems to leave with us a greater sense of self-confidence and assurance. Her sin- cerity, foresight, and guidance will always be remembered.

This pie will be all that it should be, in unity, sweetness, and goodness, mixed with flavor and life.

Barry Student Government at Abbot is not abstract and withdrawn from the stu- dent body. On the contrary, from the time a girl enters Abbot until her graduation Stu-G plays an important part in her life. It may be that her contact with it is only in an official capacity, and she may be conscious of the officers as the girls who remind her of the rules that must be obeyed. However, the sense of fair play, sports- manship and honor achieved under Student Government has an indescrib- able effect on the future life of every Abbot girl. The work of the 1949-1950 council included alteration of the citation system, and sponsorship of correspondences between Abbot and young people of other countries. On November 5-6, 1949, representatives of the New England Student Government Association met in Andover. The work of the council regulates and sets a high standard for Abbot students. [50] A. C. A. Together with the efforts of the World Student Service Fund, A.C.A. has contributed to many charities to aid in the fight against suffering. A.C.A. began the year with a lively Old Girl-New Girl party, with games, stunts, refreshments and new friends for everyone. During the fall many of us experienced " second-childhood " while dressing dolls and choosing toys to send to the Hindman Settlement. Saint Nick stopped here at the party A.C.A. gave for Andover children, with presents for each little boy and girl. The Preps and Juniors gave The Birds ' Christmas Carol, and to the tune of " Jingle Bells " the party came to a happy end. A basket of fruit was presented to the Andover Old Folks ' Home for their Christmas. The candle- light Vesper Service, with the reading of two stories, was a delightful part of A.C.A. OFFICERS B. Flather, President; M. Lurton, Vice President; C. Kimberly, Secretary; S. Stevens, Treasurer our unforgettable Christmas at Abbot. Throughout the year A.C.A. con- ducted the Wednesday morning chapel.

Miss Friskin, Directress Choir The Abbot Chapel Choir, a group of about sixteen voices, for the most part Seniors, sings each Sunday at vespers. Under the direction of Miss Kate Friskin, we aspire to master the difficult passages in many of the classical four-part an- thems. It is work, and fun, and we love it. Fidelio Early in the fall, the lucky chosen fifty hurry to the first meeting of Fidelio. The program would include a concert at Abbot with the Exeter boys as our sing- ing guests, and then another at Governor Dummer where we would be the visitors. Both events meant dinner parties before and dancing after the programs. AVe would also sing a vesper service in the Phillips Academy chapel with the choir. Under the baton of our gifted director, Miss Kate Friskin, we worked out of the flats into some too sharps until we finally became natural, or so we hoped, especially on the big occasion. Fidelio enriches our years at Abbot, for as underclassmen we listen to the beauti- ful choral concerts, and as upperclassmen we take pride in either achieving mem- bership, or else seeing our classmates participate in the traditional success of this time-honored organization. FIDELIO [52] Dramatics Tryouts; Miss Hale ' s scribbled notices; rehearsals; playbooks dog-eared from study; rehearsals; butterflies; curtain time. Yes, " The play ' s the thing. " December brought the seniors ' presen- tation of Fanny and the Servant Problem. Never shall we forget the dashing picture of Fanny and her lover, or the Bennett family ' s rendition of " Soldiers of Christ Arise " as it echoed and re-echoed through Bantock Hall. From the enthusiastic cheers of the underclassmen, the seniors knew their comedy had been a success. The Abbot Dramatic Society includes some of the more talented actresses of the school. The membership, on a competitive basis, was increased from ten to sixteen this year, so that more girls might share its opportunities. Another new feature was the holding of monthly meetings, the purpose of which was to give the members a wider knowledge of the theatre. The climax of the year ' s work came in April when A.D.S. put on Dear Brutus, the NORA AND PEGGY " Lady and Lord Bantock " well-beloved play of James Barrie. With Sonny ' s battle cry, " Let ' s clear the stage, " school girls adopted varied and complex characters. After these two entertaining plays, Abbot turned her eyes towards Draper Dramatics, the play which would high- light the graduation activities. A. D. S. Back Row, left to right: M. Whittall, R.

Of course, not only our names appear in print, but our literary aspira- tions as well, and these, in their final presentation, make up Cour- ant. Courant is the school maga- zine, open to all for contributions, but assembled and organized by the board which consists of ten members of the two upper classes. Mandy ' s " Courant, 4:45!

Twice a year our meetings are tinged with an especially animated atmosphere as they include frantic typing of material, chiseling block-cuts, pro- ducing an artistic frontispiece, and never-ending proofreading, all done for the goal— " ready for press. " When Courant actually is ready for press, we hand it over to the printer, and after passing judg- ment on the galley and page proof, Courant again appears — Now a bound, complete magazine!

[38] " A " Society j The " A " Society is composed of the girls who have gained 500 per- sonal athletic points. Points may be gotten in a number of ways; by making a varsity team (oh! those athletes!), taking those well- loved " bird-walks " (Salem Street, here we come), by standing up straight, whenever Miss Judd or TEAM CAPTAINS Mickey, Gargoyles; Peggy, Griffins Miss Elroy wander in, by pass- ing those wicked tests each season ; and last but not least, bv the ath- letic citation. One can also win class numerals which are proudly worn on blazers by gaining 300 points; and the most sought-after award comes after 750 points, the Abbot blazer. This last award goes to the girls who have steadily participated in all the athletics and AAA " Janie " have shown outstanding work in athletics and, incidentally, who are worshipfully admired by those less athletic ones. But whether one gets a set of numerals or a blazer, every one is a loval member of the Athletic Association and together strive to uphold the standards created and carried on from vear to vear. SONG LEADERS Betsy, Libby and Sterie [59] Year of Sports When you became a student of Abbot Academy vou became a member of her Athletic Associa- tion, and belonging to this society has meant a great deal to you. It was not so very long ago, and you ' ll never forget that day, for vour face was white as vou marched out of the tower door to your expected doom. It was then that vou were initiated onto one of Abbot ' s teams — the Gargoyles or the Griffins. And when you received the orange or the green, there was a look of pride in your eyes! You knew the good times ahead! You were really a part of Abbot then, and your sportsmanship and spirits soared high. Lister and Gus looked at you all and whispered to each other, " Never have the teams been so finer ' And so your life here began, with you very much a part of Abbot and Abbot a part of you. All through the fall months you were out there plugging away — Whew! You were exhausted from GRIFFIN BASKETBALL TEAM R. Reifsnyder, J. Pope, G. Y ' offa, C. Cha.se, E. Moss, Captain; M. Teasdale, M. Ariz, C. Corey playing that hockey game! Or maybe there was a " basketball finger " to remind you of the rip- roaring competition the other team offered. And pounds literally fell off on the tennis court as vou struggled to win your tournament. Then, when the big day arrived and the orange and green became reallv friendlv enemies, vou all GARGOYLE HOCKEY TEAM T. Dithmer, .1 . Beard, G. Dams, E. Chaplin, J. Holt, C. lluberth, M. Greenwald, Captain; R. Euller, S. Kimball, P. Paradise, M, Howes, II. VanDusen, R. Wheeler GRIFFIN HOCKEY TEAM M. Kimherly, J. Russell, M. M . Wheeler, M. Edson, F. Russell, P. Burke, P. lhishnell, M. Warner, P. Kitchell, Captains B. Goodspeed, A. Lyons, J. Aldrich [60 ll I % JL TENNIS rriuefher, P. WhittaH, A. Lindamood, A. Dunsford, B. Flather plaved vour hardest and lovallv gave your voices to " the cause. " You all played and yelled profes- sional that dav, and Lister and Gus were proud as Punch. The fall season ended and the GARGOYLE BASKETBALL TEAM Left to right: A. Emmert, A . Penwell, T. Wood, T. Lange and D. Redfield, Co-Captains, A. BisseU, P. Smith, A . Mercer B. Wood, L. Eccles, C. Sippey, A. Moser, S. Mason winter began. Some of you slipped into slinky leotards and flitted off to modern dance while others be- gan to climb the walls and twist themselves up in knots — you guessed it — gymnastics. Hail Miss Judd and Miss Elroy for keeping their eardrums in shape. (We do apologize for sounding like ele- phants, but we did mean well.) When that first snow arrived you donned your glamorous ski clothes, put on the brand-new pair of skis and felt terribly professional. Bang! Crash! Better luck next time down. It takes a few to get in practice. But what fun vou had when you could reallv ski — vou know, make it down vertically and land at the bottom in the same position. Or mavbe ice-skating was vour special sport. Many a happy hour was spent skimming over the shiny [61] surfaces. Skimming did I sav? Yes! skimming. But when spring arrived you were more than happy to welcome it. For it was lacrosse season and that was something extra special. " How in the world can you cradle a ball? " you wondered, hut you caught onand before long the Green and the Orange were competing again. Track season brought out the Amazon in you! You leaped across the broad-jump pit or hurled the javelin with a mighty heave. Your Injun instincts came out when like Chief Fleet -as-an-Arrow you ran the dash, or participated in the relav. Tennis season arrived once more and vou were out there pounding the backboard as well as vour brain if determination was vour motto. And then, of course, GRIFFIN CHEERLEADERS Left to right: A. Dunsford, S. Sicenson, M. M. Wheel- er, M. Bowman, M. Crane, . . Nielsen, S, Seaman Front: H. Somers, Captain [62] GARGOYLE CHEERLEADERS Left to right: C. Hall, A. Emmons, L. Eccles, F. White, S. Stevens, C. Huberth, Captain; C. Hummel, S. Westhaver, J. Gafill, V. Hoyt there was baseball. No slouching in that area. Swat — we were good! Many a spring walk gave you spring fever. And who could do home work after a canoe picnic on the lazy river? The year was draw- ing to an end. Spring Field Day brought more " Suntimes. " " When the day of " last chapel " arrived amid a mass of guests and excitement, joy and sadness, you all sat in chapel and held your breath — you were all on edge, hoping, praying for your team. Then suddenlv it was announced — « a mighty shout echoed throughout the room and re-echoed over the campus! The year was officially over! It had been a great one for all and especially for A. A. A.! The shield is placed high — symbolic of the meaning it has for all of us. [63] -5 Of all the records in our album only one is long-playing — the record of our year. All the gaiety and gloom, fun and failures, events and aspira- tions are recorded all too briefly, but a tune is created — the melody of 1950! September September twenty-first, nineteen forty-nine. The new girls arrived, fit n fine! A stream of ears, milling crowds Around the Circle, heads in the clouds. Some blase and oh, so at ease. Others trying so hard to please: But all confused, bewildered and lost. Clothes, drapes, and books on beds are tossed; And Senior Council through the shambles appears As welcome committee to dry away tears. " Hev. Mabel! " ' " How are vou? " " Hi, Joan! " " Short hair too? " The next day such wild greetings Old girls screeched at hysterical meetings. " Breathe deeply! Exhale! " the doctors were howling: At flat feet and sway-backs they all were scowling. " Physicals " over and such rigamarole Into the nut-house we were ready to go! With Miss Hearsey ' s " send-off " we all began classes, And thus we became the struggling masses. Friday brought homework and first P. A. callers: " He sure is a cutie, if he only were taller! " On Saturday to Ipswich under bright sunny skies : Hot-dogs and milk and sand in our eyes. That night the A.C.A. party with games That always involve learning more names ! The first week, teachers and girls got ac- quainted; And into routine the Abbot girls fainted. That week flew by on little winged feet; We knew what it meant to be thoroughly beat. October The Seniors on Saturday filled buses again. Bound for the beach where we never com- plain: With ciggies and sand and huge appetites W e stuffed and relaxed and laughed with de- light. October the eighth: the first football game, P. A. tea dance and underclass fame. Soon, the Shrew to be Tamed, Senior poems to write, Hamlet ' s soliloquy, and Senior lights! Halloween came and to celebrate A big U.N. Party — better early than late! A visit from witches and of course the Big Five, Ghosts and goblins kept the big throw alive. November With November came the Stu-G pow-wow Lectures and square dance and plenty of chow; Meeting new people and mutual friends But (let us face it !) it came to an end! Miss Hopkins ' farewell and Senior photos taken : Hockey and bells and liver with bacon. The blue of P. A. ' gainst the red of P.E. Andover victors at Abbot made whoopee ! Field Day on Monday — the Gargoyles win. The Seniors on Wednesday their Chaucer begin. Saturday leaves, and si, si, ze Mexico talk. Miss Friskin ' s recital and many bird walks. What about marks? Don ' t be ridic. We got them and felt oh, so utterly sick! But Thanksgiving arrived with our chapel devotions On the evening before the holiday commo- tions. We hurried at dawn so not a minute to miss Of turkey and firesides and family bliss. At eight — back to Abbot — to the In- firmary run! We ate far too much, so we paid for our fun. When Christmas tables began on Friday St. Nick, we all knew was not far away. Then on with the stockings and " long under- wear " ; We saw Old Man Winter with a cold blast was there. December The month of icicles arrived in full force December brings holly and mistletoe, of course Abbot ' s own " night club " was quite a hot spot, It was pretty good for what Abbot ' s got. Our Senior Play came the night of the tenth But Seniors had even more excitement : The parlor bulging with every last one P «■ (As if winning a race that we all had run). And after ' ring ceremony ' and Miss Hear- sey ' s wise talk We with our class rings on pink clouds did walk. Before the curtain rose, marching up the aisle The Senior-Mids came singing " Onward! " with a big smile. With " servants " and " Fanny " and each one concerned The flame of success through Davis Hall burned. The A.C.A. gave their Yuletide service. The girls looked nice, but were oh, so nervous. Lee told a story, ' neath the candlelight glow, And outside, our Circle was spread with new snow. Our last week sped by, filled with anticipa- tion; Each day brought us closer to Christmas vacation ! Our last yummy dinner came to a song-filled ending And so to MeKeen rooms our way we were wending To sing Yuletide carols of the season ' s good cheer And wind up shouting " Happy New Year! " We awoke in the morn to the clear carol- singing Of choir girls, by candlelight, Christmas joy bringing. We hastened to leave still rubbing our eyes For dawn ' s-early trains at five we did rise. Bags and trunks clogging up the front hall We called " Adios " and " Greetings, you all! " January From merry Christmases and grand celebra- tion, We returned to school ready for another vacation ! Patty and Mile. Baratte with bad colds and fever Were late to return, as were Sonny and Eva. We quickly got back into the old swing Hearing the breakfast and lights-out bell ring! Sculptor Silvercruys talked, not turning this or that way And when she was through she had sculped Nancy Gray. Should it be Elmer, or Zeke, or my Louie? With prom partner problems we went ca- flooie! At Abbot, Exeter concert-ed and Exeter danced — Gee! It was great to see a pair of pants! By dim flashlights in closets we crammed Nervously studying for on-coming exams. Chaotic exam week — " What if I fail? " Then with a roar — Seniors to Intervale! " Cheerio, here I go, " relaxation, sports and cigs, too! In North Conway tradition we heard " Winnie the Pooh " . February From that " little bit of heaven " we returned in sad array Reading " True Love " or sleeping in sloppy display. Miss Hale and Miss Goodwin involved in psychiatry With their unusual maids gave a great show of riotry. To the great height of " Suicide " we avid skiiers climbed For the first spree of skiing for which we had pined. With hair-curlers, blue-jeans and creamed faces a mess The prom decorators made posters in frantic distress. But Saturday dawned a beautiful day ; Tea dancing, promenading — all so gay, That sad were the farewells of dates on Sun- day. A million Valentines frilly and pretty Arrived on the fourteenth — each with a ditty. " Get to the source of your poet ' s themes! " By the time papers were due, we said verse in our dreams. Baronial now open — the meals how delish! Food, fire, and vie — what more could you wish? March " Eet vas vunderful! " we screamed, " How rich! " With Lee, Eva, and Dottie in " Tovarich. " More talent was shown — you ' d think it was vital, The way that they squirmed at the student recital. We thought with Scholatic Apts. it was bad, But with College Boards we really went mad! The Juniors had their parties, while the March winds blew W egot spring-fever and longed to bethrough. A Y alk Through the Woods with wee Mr. Boyd Of the birds and their habits one night we hoid. " We have here a fine dilemma, " cried in terrible fury The vigorous chorus of " Trial by Jury. " Sunday church at P. A. and spring was in bloom, But next day snow again, and Monday gloom. No history homework? Don ' t be silly! Cartoons for the weekend — " Mine was a dilly! " Wid de Preacher Russell, and the Boogie Baby on the down beat Miss Bockstedt and chorus gave us a Satur- day night treat. Now! Swing from that bar! Hang from your feet! Rock your horse higher at the Gym Meet. Next morn at dawn there is no delay To rise and shine for vacation — away ! April On vacation, friend March went out like a lamb. On April eleventh we returned to exams And bells and books — and of course, a good rest (With blue-circled eyes we were not at our best!). Wednesday, sleepily, we started our classes In hand were not cocktail, but horn-rimmed glasses! With tennis, lacrosse, riding, and baseball. Feeling " younger than springtime ' to sports we would crawl. The artists. Friskin, Arosa, and Coon Entertained us ' neath a Saturday moon. Our Easter finery a mere week old We paraded to church in mode a la bold. The days become longer and then we all knew Just a mere seven weeks until we were through! " Dear Brutus " the product of A.D.S. players With scenery, costumes, make-up in layers: Every last detail what a beautiful job, And we sure got acquainted with the friends of Lob. Sunday the French horn, piano and violin Caused a hush o ' er the crowd such as there ' s seldom been. Now let us speak of the true Abbot scholar Cum Laude, no less, was the next thing to follow. Mincing on tippey-toes came the swift dancers. Next Saturday night we saw pirouettes and prancers ! May and — We can ' t include May, the month so merry Because our good printer is in a big hurry To call in our dummy and put it to bed, But we ' ll jot down a list of what is ahead . . . " Come and buv, one and all! " Mav sixth, the Bazaar; Our one hundred and twenty-first birth- day — we go back that far! The circle resembling a huge birthday cake: Crepe paper, booths, and put in to bake! X earing the end : Mikado and Speech speech- es; Sunshine and packing; whipped cream and peaches. Griffins and Gargoyles at the last Field Day battles. Fighting and scoring ' til every bone rattles! Exams, yes, exams it ' s all over now And at the " last chapel " our winners take a bow. Parents arrive and cars are soon full . . . We shove, stuff, and cram; push and pull! Commencement week-end is a wonderful thrill, Some joy and some sadness each Senior ' s heart fills. We bid our farewells to such familar sights As Maple Walk, books, and of course Senior lights. Our foolishness and failures, joys and sor- rows Will be but memories in the approaching tomorrow. But pitying ever Columbus and Cabot We leave shouting lustilv, " Long life to Abbot! " J f 7rrr v The album closes, but the melody lingers on. The commercials, our advertisers and contributors, have been marvelous. With- out their wonderful aid, this record album would not have been possible. CO MP LI M E N T S F Mr. and Mrs. S. E.
