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

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. "

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! "
