K 7 e Se Uo @tcte %i4to ut On September 23, 1952, several young and very brave girls entered the gates of Abbot Academy. 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
