For many it was the first time away from home, but they were determined to adapt themselves to the rigorous routine of " prep school " and some- how, make themselves a part of it. During that long and wonderful year they learned of many things that they never knew existed . . . the glories of a CP paper, the taste of hamburgers at Ford ' s, the nervous tension during the first day of exams, the tediousness of afternoon study hall, the strangeness at having to serve a meal, the beauty of Sunday night vespers. This small class also had some distinctions that were its very own . . . the constant record playing and the phoning to Abbey house every night that drove the Draper faculty insane. The next year many new persons joined the group to make it larger although it was split up among Draper, Abbey, Homestead, and Sherman. During the year the AAYC was born ... an exclusive organization to which only the most important people could belong. Soon the little girls realized that they were grow- ing up, the work becoming harder and harder . . . The third year brought great happiness to the group as it was again en- larged and was at last in unison under the same roof. It was during that year the class learned that responsibility went hand in hand with authority and one could only be gotten through application of the other. The Abbot bazaar was theirs to command and the feeling was wonderful. The year also brought forth many talents which were given recognition in the Senior-Mid Talent Show. With Jane Austen out of the way, the month of June appeared around the corner and the final year became more than a dream to that little group that started out so long ago. The first realization of being seniors swept over them as they found them- selves in the Senior Parlor — their very own. Next came the Senior Picnic, where mingled with sand, seaweed, and cigarette smoke, they received the material symbol of all the work, happiness, distress, defeat, and excitement of life at Abbot. They were nostalgically reminded of the bad times and the glad times as Mrs. Crane called out the names to present the rings. Soon they swung into the routine and forgot to pinch themselves to be sure that the figures on the foreboding platform in the traditional Abbot blue blazers were actually their classmates, the same girls who in the years before had been sitting in the back rows of the chapel listening to the student council lead its opening meeting. All too soon came Intervale and the Senior Prom and finally — graduation. The little group felt strangely quiet as they walked back down the aisle of South Church for the last time, realizing that a very special part of their lives was over and the time had come to leave Abbot, taking with them the wonderful things they had learned. 37 Front row: E.

Oliver. rf-Societcf (fyutdida ' i fe« J f 4 ? tte vate In the midst of a blinding snowstorm the senior class, accompanied by Emmett, arrived at Intervale. On the slopes of Cranmore Mountain the " snow bunnies " learned to stay on their feet and watched with envy the pros " shushing " down from Halfway House. The ice rink and toboggan slope attracted many of the brave outdoor girls. At night sitting lazily around the fire at Russell ' s, the group sang favorite songs and listened to Mrs. Crane read the story of " Richard Brown and the Dragon. " The Inter- vale song became part of their " mountaintop memories " and expressed their feelings about this unforgettable experience as a senior class. 41 e a i ft Our three day Prom was a grand success, thanks to the efforts of Janie Tat- man, the Prom committee, and all involved. The first dates arrived Friday night to see Candida, a play put on by Brooks and Abbot, and to dance afterwards in the new gym. At a picnic lunch Saturday the seniors discovered Baronial, and the senior- mids frequented Ford ' s. The gym was popular during the afternoon and attracted many sports enthusiasts. That night the couples danced to the music of Harry Marshard and were entertained by the Senior Octet and the Andover 8- ' n-l. The musical decorations of the jazz theme lent the finishing touches to a wonderful and melodious evening. Noon Sunday arrived all too soon. Many were the sorrows as the cars left the gates but many the memories gained from this great week-end. :h ii; +w f., J EMMETT , IN YOUR LIFE YOU WILL MEET PEOPLE a o K First Term Officers: K.

Dear Seniors, We find it especially difficult to end such a wonder- ful year, because we realize that next year you will not be here to guide us as you have done in the past. It has been a memorable experience to have our whole class together sharing the many privileges that come with being upperclassmen. The year has been lull of exciting events. In the fall we had fun putting on the variety show and discovering budding talent. It was a thrill to march in with our class sweaters, having the class united by a common color. The three day prom, the bazaar, our play ... all these served to make this year such a successful one. We only hope that we will be able to live up to the high example which you have set for us as a senior class. With love and wishes for success, The Senior Mid Class 47 First Term Officers: P.

Collecting cancelled stamps, swooning over boys, hating to get up in the morning, and finishing our walks . . . The class gathering last fall in a " Parisian Cafe " wit- nessed an overflow of laughter and pure enjoyment, as did corridor and house parties thrown for ever) ' imaginable occasion. " Today we eat, tomorrow we diet! " " Ye gads, long pants! " We were daily customers of Ford ' s and faith- ful subscribers to the " Phillipian " . Our families had their doubts about weekly allowances, with distractions like W. U.S., the snack bar and the Co-op gnawing disastrous holes in our pockets. There were many other interesting activities in our year. The class presentation of Twelfth Night was excellent and great fun for everyone. Other memories include a prom weekend at the big school, the tea dances at Brooks, and the excitement of the first day of skiing. Our remember- ances all vary, but never will the unity we felt as a class be forgotten — - the unity of the class of ' 58. 49 . ii. inn p R E P S First Term Officers: C. Hitch, K. Sides, J.

In the confusion of meetings and new experiences our class of fifteen board- ers and fifteen day scholars became part of Abbot. Facing the new work, we eventually learned how to take it and eventually learned how to do it. We became acquainted with the walk system and the school on the hill, and especially enjoyed the " Mixer " with P. A. in the fall. At Christmas we put on the traditional play " Saint George and the Dragon " , breaking tradition by pre- senting it " in the round. " Many were the good times that we had on the corridors of Abbey; new fun combined with new work to make this a wonderful year. We ho pe, in the coming years as we grow in size and age, that the class of ' 59 will break all records. Front row: M. Bernstein, L. Onthank, H. Hein, S. Calnan, S. Wholey, C. Jones, J. Galipeau, F.

We, the Student Government Council, have felt and deeply appreciated the cooperation of the whole school this year. Student Government is an important part of every girl ' s life from the time she enters Abbot until she leaves. We value highly the sense of honor achieved under Stu-G and recognize it as a lasting quality which will guide us through life. We extend our thanks to Mrs. Crane, and to every member of the Student body for their continued support. To them does the Student Government belong, and its success is their gain. Back row: M.

Every doll for the Hindman Settle- ment looked spectacularly original, and the many donations to worthy charities were greatly appreciated. At Christmas time A. C.A. gave a party for the underprivileged children of Andover, each child receiving his own gift. The year of A.C.A. activities at Abbot itself began with a bang-up Old Girl-New Girl party; both the Wednesday morning chapel services and the Sunday night vesper service conducted by the officers of the A.C. A. proved to be truly inspirational. In every way, every day, the Abbot Christian Associ- ation has played an important part in our lives here at school. A.C.A. Representatives: Front row: N.

Another year of music and fun has begun. A repertoire for winter and spring projects must be prepared, and there are concerts and dances with Brooks, Ex- eter, and Andover. Flat notes must be changed. Success comes as a result of the splendid instruction and remarkable pa- tience of Miss Kate Friskin. As commence- ment approaches and finally arrives, each girl becomes aware of a rewarding exper- ience and recognizes individual growth in music appreciation, directed by her par- ticipation in Fidelio activities.

With the enthusiasm of Miss Baker and the emphasis that our book must be a " tremendous " one, with Emmett prompting us, we made the dummy. We have memories of those Wednesday afternoons in Homestead and those extra meetings called because of " mucho work to be done, kiddies! " There have been those many frantic moments when we were sure we would never get everything arranged, fitted, and in order in time to send to the publisher. Our task was spurred on by Emmett ' s and Cemmy ' s spirit and personalities. The yearbook has been an adventure for all of us — an exciting and marvelous one! Back row: E. MacKinnon, G. Titcomb, B.

Armed with pencils and determi- nation, we discussed the qualities and demerits of the week ' s contri- butions. With the valuable help and suggestions from our advisor Mrs. Stockly and with Miss Sweeney ' s constant support, we collected material to send to the press. After seemingly endless proof-reading, relief and pride were echoed by all when we presented our final result. It was truly a choice anthology of the best literary efforts of the student body.

Our object is to raise money which will be used in foreign countries to better education and health programs. The Abbot girls join together to raise this money by doing table jobs and by collecting articles left in the recreation rooms which the owner can get back for a small fee. Through this organization we help others to obtain the things which we are so lucky to have at Abbot. 58 g D%€UPt€L @late The Drama Class consists of the girls who do not necessarily have great talent but who do have a real interest in and an enthusiasm for acting. For the Commencement play the class chose The Admirable Crichton by James Barrie which was a great success according to the response of the audience. In December they presented a superb interpretation of scenes from Victoria Regina. It was a difficult choice, but everyone did an excellent job. With the patience and understanding help of Miss Hale, all had fun and learned something about the theater during rehearsals and exciting performances. No one will ever forget her dramatic experiences at Abbot. 59 Emmett, you have to de PHYSICALLY FIT N Miss Judd, Mrs. Nagler, Mrs. Jensen Miss Ritchie S. Prial, P. Oliver, A. Tripp, S.

As each student enters Abbot, she is given the privilege of membership in the association. Along with the privilege, however, goes the responsibility of every member to uphold the standards of the Association at all times. By doing this, every girl can be a sport without being an athlete, and the purpose of the Abbot Athletic Association is attained. 62 TEAM CAPTAINS Caesar, L. Johnson, Lister, W.

Everyone has worked hard to gain points and honor for her team, green or orange. On the athletic fields the first and fourth teams alike, spurred on by the cheering sidelines, demonstrated sportsmanship and skill to the ut- most. Under the able leadership of Winnie and Lindsay, the teams showed equal talent and enthusiasm although only one team could win. SONG LEADERS J. Warren, D. Holbrook, P. Estes GRIFFIN CHEERLEADERS K.

Those days when the orange and green teams met on the athletic fields were days when every girl donated her share to the spirit of the whole team, whether she participated in the game or sat on the sidelines and cheered.

We then turned to the new gym, which held in store a new and thrilling prospect for everyone. The roller skating parties were popular with all, as were basketball, fencing, and modern dance. Regretfully we left the gym, but with the anticipation of spring ' s athletics. We ran out to the fields, courts, track, and range.
