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

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,

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
