|0W ISTHE TIME! .. H 1 1 Courant We don ' t see our names in lights, but we do see them in print! 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! " an- nounces our weekly meetings where new material is read, criticized and, if it passes the " thumbs-up " test, it is on its way. 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! Nora, Business Manager; Miss Sweeney, Advisor; Mandy, Editor Jane, Lee and Skippy Polly, Kimmy and Nancy Bobbi and Gette

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.

Yearbook Well named, this yearbook! Yes, Yes, the Abbot Circle, that keeps the staff running in circles day and night. " Yearbook Meeting— 1 A5 ' . " glared from the blackboard count- less times, and we ' d assemble to see what new brainstorms had hit the unpredictable Tore. Usually the group would buzz and scream with inspirations; occ asionally we were dead silent. Behind these pages lie hours of frantic writing; cutting and creat- ing; innumerable ideas, some good, some bad; constant changes; mad organizing, proofreading, and past- ing; Dottie scribbling fantastic notes. . .Ann and Cynnie racking their brains for ads; and miracu- lously successful . . . Miicki, quiet but effective . . . Mickey and Peggy wailing, " But there ' s nothing more to sav, " vet they wrote a thousand words. . .Pattv and Connie, our energetic camera bugs, shouting, " Cheeze, girls, cheeze ! " , the echoes of which were heard all over the campus . . . Libby and Betsy good- natured and willing. . .Peggy and Tove, mad artists, furiously inking in their creations — at last, with an exhausted and satisfied sigh the master work was finished! Tove, Editor-in-Chief; Mrs. Reeves, Advisor; Ann Iliggins, Business Manager Peggy, Cynnie, Assistant Business Manager; Miicki and ■ Libby M ickey, Betsy, Pat, Dottie, and and Peg Connie
