1953 Circle Board Editor-in-Chief Nancy Smedlev Business Manager Caroline Benedict Assistant Business Manager Suzanne Martin Associate Editors Beverlv Berkev Martha Schneider Janet Bowden Sallv Swayne Carol Burton Judith Wilcox Timmie Hekma Marv Williams Dunster Pettit Jane Wilson THE 1 9 5 3 CIRCLE Presented by the Senior Class of Abbot Academy, Andover, Massachusetts DEDICATED to MISS ADELE D. BOCKSTEDT Because she entered Abbot with our class and as our advisor has never been too busy to give us clear advice and good counsel; because of her lively spirit and ever-readiness to please us and encourage us; because of the sympathy and understanding with which she has treated all our problems, we, the Class of 1953, proudly dedicate this book to Miss Bockstedt. MISS HEARSEY Miss Hearsey is an important part of our life at Abbot. From our " new-girl " days when we first hear her inspiring prayers and talks in chapel, to the time when we learn that she is the best person to help solve our problems, we love and admire her for her devotion and sincere interest in every one of us. Through poetry classes, Sunday suppers at Sunset and those wonderful days at Intervale, we know her as the special friend of the seniors. Counsellor, guide and, above all, our friend - this is why we sing, ' Miss Hearsey, to you, our hearts belong.

Prayer Almighty God, We pray for the vision and awareness of thy presence and awareness of the presence that may break the chains of fear and misconception which confine our hearts. We know that we must accept that power which is greater than our- selves before we can conquer the things we fear. For there is a mightier force than fear — a mightier power than hate — a thing which is love, hope, understanding - - and is called the Will of God. Help us to open our hearts to thy command- ments - - and we shall acquire that freedom above all freedoms - - that peace beyond ex- pression . Let this lie our challenge: to conquer the tempests within our hearts; to vanquish the motives of wrong; to follow thy path of goodness and truth.

[39] Pages from the Diary " I arrived in Grand Central from Sain City, Iowa, and idled up to the informa- tion booth and asked Marti Schneider where to find a cab. I hailed a shiny, new orange one and a few minutes later walked into the Hotel Astor, where I found Elaine Audi and Dee Bethell standing at the desk trying to persuade the clerk, Tim Cogan, to buy Dee ' s latest novel. Curious, as I always am, I entered the ladies ' room and found Nat Starr in a white uniform, pick- ing up bobby-pins. Getting back into the cab, I asked the driver to turn on the radio. The melodious voice of Janet Bow- den came over the air announcing Rafa ' s Mambo Band playing a special request for the two exotic dancers — Catalina Gomez and Ann Zuill. The program was interrupted to bring a fla sh from Boston - Dee Pettit had been banned — again - for her revealing dances at the Old How- ard. The flash was interrupted to an- nounce that Audie Taylor had just fin- ished cutting up her fiftieth cadaver and found that it had two hearts! The cab stopped for a red light and in a television store window, I saw a new, life-sized set tuned to the twenty-four-hour comedy show, " Life with Betty. " The cab con- tinued uptown and, as we passed Carnegie Hall, I saw Andy Stevenson, violin in place, and Mary Owl, piano under her arm, come sedately out. A large poster was outside announcing Muffle Gross, the famous African explorer and heathen converter giving illustrated lectures on newly-discovered Umbagazuland. From February 17-24, the attraction seemed to be the Talbot Brothers, featuring Ellen Smith as guest trumpet soloist. The post- ers had been hand-painted by Meddle Goodnow, eccentric Bohemian artist who is, at present, starving in a garret in Greenwich Village. Red lights being rather numerous, I had one of My Boys hop out for a news- paper and a couple of magazines. He soon came back and I saw, screaming in the headlines, " WORLD-FAMOUS DOG- TOR, CORNELIA NYCE, INVENTS SUBSTITUTE FOR BLOOD! " Then my attention was drawn to an article on Helen Marvell, headmistress of Choate, who had just been presented with a Caddy-Allard by her appreciative pupils. Turning the page, I saw an announcement of the birth of Ann Kennedy ' s fifth child, whom she had named Em. By this time, we had gotten to Central Park. I saw some familiar figures, so I got out of the cab. There, sitting on an anthill, was Toni Gerald having a serious discussion with Timmie Hekma, who was most consider- ately feeding the birds. They were dis- cussing their old classmates and told me some very interesting bits of gossip. First of all, there was the time when Mary Williams was seen going north on a south- bound subway. I must say I was rather surprised to hear that Carol Hardin just defeated Polly Jackson to win the Wom- en ' s World Wrestling Championship. They also told me that Nancy Bailey is enjoying a very successful career as house- mother at Princeton. I was digesting this news when up popped Sally Swayne wheeling ten baby carriages filled with most of her children. She told us that she had almost been run over by Dottie Giles, who is at present chauffeur for the Secre- tary-General of the U.N. She had just been having tea with Dee Sclioon maker, Mrs. America 1J)68, and Helen Glidden, who was rather tired after having spent 40 of Sam Aritan FEBRUARY % 1968 all morning modeling bathing suits at the Motor Boat Show. I hopped back into the cab and we headed for Radio City. Double attraction at the Music Hall — Maryse Besso as a swan in " Swan Lake " and Ruth Sidon and Mary Scandura, who have com- pletely displaced Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. I passed the skating rink and there was Patty Earhart shoveling off the ice. I turned around and bumped smack into Bev Berkey, who said she was carrying on a thriving business as a street -corner photographer. She had just snapped Julie Gaines, better known as the presi- dent of the Lonely Hearts Club, with her old roommate, Muffie Grant, who has gained renown as a Whiffenpoofess. They told me that they had just seen Ann Clark coming out of Madame Patricia EveletK ' s School for Deportment, having just completed her two-hundred-nine- teenth successful improvement course. I got back in the cab and, as we went whizzing downtown, I picked up a maga- zine. The first thing I saw was an ad for Breck shampoo, posed for by Tish Miller, of all people. On the same page with this ad was an article by Judy Wilcox entitled, " How to Be One of the Ten Best -Dressed Women in the U. S. " and one by Nancy Smedley explaining the reason for her new rocket service between Andover and Exeter. One of My Boys got hungry, so we stopped off for a minute at an Automat. Blocking the entrance was Judy Pinkham collecting money for the Salvation Army. We finally got inside, and there was Pam Bushnell waiting on tables. She was deep in conversation with Bunty Benedict who had spent the last nine months going around the world in a bottle. We were sitting munching on chicken sandwiches when in walked our friend Libby Hollister, chief lense cleaner on Mount Palomar, with Eva Stern, stock-car tester at the Indianapolis Speedway. Over in a corner we noticed Ann Stoddard keeping in training for her job as fat woman in the circus by consuming her fifth double banana split. On the way out we bumped into Barbara Schroedel, star of the current Broadway hit — " Let Your Hair Down. " Trying to get back into the cab, our way was blocked by Connie Weldon, head of Baby Sitters ' Union, Local Number 17, standing on a soap box screaming for better wages. Once safely back in the cab, I was startled by hearing Marta Horsefield in a singing commercial for Grandma ' s Lye Soap. The program was a lecture on hair-styling by Carol Burton. We finally pulled up in front of Macy ' s. There, hold- ing a big basket, was Janie Wilson shout- ing for Bundles for Bermuda. Nancy Edmonds, just returned from installing sun-lamps in igloos in Alaska, was giving Janie the coat off her back. Looking into Macy ' s window, who should I see but Sue Martin testing mattresses. She looked extremely comfortable and, seeing as I had no place to spend the night, I decided to accept her hospitality. I went back to the cab to pay the fare and collect My Boys. The patient cab-driver turned around and took off her sunglasses and cap and, much to my amazement, I saw that it was Ollie who had so kindly taken me on my tour of New York. Well, Boys, it certainly is a small world! " 41 [42] DCUCCS l ILD 43] SENIOR-MID (LASS OFFICERS -2ND TKRM Back Row: .4. Hunt. Vice-President: P. Stillin, Secretary: .1.

As a result of our interpretation of these standards of conduct based on the desired qualities of character, the Citation and Honor systems have been revised.

Yet it is your magazine because it is put together for you and with your help. This is essentially Courant.

During these meetings, brains were racked, and hair was torn; but under Mrs. Reeves ' constant but patient guidance, all our problems were solved. Dee and Timmie aided by Meddie and Helen spent their time doodling while Bunty and Sue attempted to balance the budget. Throughout the year Bev and Granny furiously snapped pictures.

Gaines [56] Abbot Athletics In order to become a member of a team this year, each girl was expected to write a song or cheer, later to be used by her team. The cheers were worked out with ori- ginal motions, led by the cheer- leaders and used by the teams on our spirited field days. Besides our regular sports there were innum- erable walks that could be taken at leisure, which, along with pos- ture awards, built up individual points towards class numerals, the Athletic " A " , chevrons, and fin- allv the white blazer.

He wore a white shirt stamped, " Ma- rine Corps. " One day while bravely fighting a herd of giraffes, he fell — down, down through space. As he fell he became immortal, changed to cotton, rags, but his spirit, burst the strange cloth prison, and scattered Gnomedust around the world, enshrining a chosen few. And although some never knew ' til years later — Gus had dubbed them Griffins. His heart his mind to like magic. [59 Sports at After our teams were chosen and the anticipated day of initiation had passed, we all joined together for a wonderful year of sports. Our hockey season proved to be ex- tremely exciting with the spirit high between the Gargoyles and Griffins. Each game was fought to the end by the players spurred on by their faithful teammates. Bas- ketball and tennis proved equally thrilling, and the season was cli- maxed by an energetic fall Field Day. Too soon winter came, forcing us inside for a different kind of exercise. Many of us made like 160 a Glance monkeys on the gym bars, while others tried to curb their waist- lines bv strenuous exercises with Miss Peddle. Unfortunately, ex- cept for a few snow flurries, our skiis remained in their racks all winter. With warm days, along came opportunities to run off our excess energy on the lacrosse fields, tennis courts, or baseball diamond. And then, all too soon, came final Field Day and the long-awaited chapel where we learned which team was victorious. As we now think back, this vear has been full of enthus- iasm and fun for each and everv one of us.
