"lt all seemed most majestic and mysterious when they sat down in their own circle." Frances Hodgson Burnett Most of us came to Abbot for better and for worse, willing in spirit if not in flesh, and if we grinned a lot it was merely because our braces had not yet taken the desired effect. No natural beauties we. Naivete flourished. Blase meant only that someone had mispronounced the ignominious blue blazer, which our mothers had bought for us in hopes that we might some day be class officers. Our housemother was Mrs. Levo, renowned for her red slip- pers and a bookie-like fetish for time and numbers. "Five minutes to go, girls." It was to no avail that we said "grakup" after lights, for the wrath of both Gertrudes descended upon us in the forms of fire drills and bells. By the end of the year, however, most of us had been enlightened by Kathi's weekends, Miss Smith's tales of ancient Greece, and the 'prep'. Oh days of blissful in- nocence and watermelon rinds. Supytalpes terram superabunt. Junior year divided our forces into two distinct camps, to be brought to- gether only by Crusades and the Merchant of Venice on a prune pit studded stage. French House and Abbey were the scenes of our microscopic journeys into awareness. It was there that most of us learned the effects of cigars, cigarettes, and jello, inhaling into shoe-filled closets and steam-filled bath- rooms which all but defeated the purpose by extinguishing the cigarettes in the moisture. The Black Pig reigned on a scalding French House roof, home of the best-tanned girls at Abbot. It was here that Mrs. Van Note first dis- covered the potency of Ex-Lax and boiling bras, while Abbey held revivalist meetings with burning wastebaskets. The junior dance was something to get USED to, but at least most of the braces had come off. lt was a year when no one really thought, but everybody enjoyed themselves immensely. lt culminated in a final Abbey-French underwear party on the French House roof while watermelon lagainj shone in the moonlight. wg in MRT 0' l 1
