MARUON AND WHITE THE GRAND BALL With the first chord of the resounding music, the triumphant march started its glittering way down through the center of the ball-room. Alt was a glorious sight. The intelligentsia sparkled and glimmered. and the poor shone all the more radiantly in their poverty. A light seemed to shine above their heads, a mighty blinding light-a magnificent halo-so strong, so bright, that it was difficult to see them clearly. But one recognized them as they passed, for their words had been constantly quoted: their deeds had been flashed throughout the world. King Arthur and Guinevere led the pro- cession. Arthur's armor brightly shone. His stature, his poise. his regal bearing made him different, more powerful, more wonderful than all the rest. He was a fitting figure to lead that march. the march of ages, the authors' fancies and the poet's dreams come true. Next came Robinson Crusoe and that prominent Swiss gentleman, Mr. Robin- son. The martyrs of maroondom, the idols of most children, they certainly de- served their position of importance. Dressed in clothes of bark and vegetarian matter. they exhibited their skill and craftiness, their appearance alone hinting of their wonderful feats. their super-human accom- plishments, their thrilling experiences. In their party was also Mr. R.obinson's closest of kin, the head of the other well-known Swiss family, which has been so well de- scribed by Christopher Morley. Just then the bugles trumpeted more loudly, the curtains at the end of the ball- room parted, and a fair-haired lass named appeared, drawing a golden this rode three black bears: a Goldilocks wagon. In mama bear, a papa bear, and a little baby bear. How appropriate was their entrance best-known characters of all among the the book world. "Once upon a time there were three bears." How often have we told their story, how many times have we thrilled to their experiences! They are the veritable saviors of all nurses, parents. and would-be sandmen. Without them no chronicle of book characters could be com- plete. Paqe One Hundred and Thirty Next came the Clemens tribe: the prince and the pauper walking arm in arm. Which is which no one knows. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn follows. How empty the annals of youth would be without themf Puddin'head Wilson and the Connecticut Yankee. innocents and tramps: grandly do they march. proudly do they strut, a humorist's con- tribution to the world, a genius's charac- ters amassed. Mrs. Leigh and Sir Amyas, who had just returned from a voyage to the Vkfest. slowly paced across the hall. How proudly she watched her son. how she revelled in the rare delight of having him near her. There they go. he fresh from hazy sand hills and the wide western sea: she the lady of Burroughsg both subjects of her most glorious majesty, Queen Elizabeth. How time flies, how memories come and go. David Balfour and Alen Break have just passed. Captain Kid and John Silver. Paul de Kruif's microbe hunters and hunger fighters all have passed by. Peg and her Jerry, Silas Marner, Abby Deal-the March of Time, they lived and died: the clock ticks on. Here comes George Babbitt. the Amer- ican man. A true example of our desultory life, his story is a wonderful biography of the ordinary American, the regular man. Elmer Gantry follows him. What a splendid picture of manhood, what a noble-looking man! Ah--well, looks can deceive. Carmela, the singer: the Abbess and her maid, once more alive, radiant, droop- ing, gone.-James Stephens two philoso- Dhers, the Grey Woman. the Thin Woman. there they are. pallid, old. and wise.-Ben Hur, Helen of Troy, and on they go.- Thousands of them pass by, millions of them trudge on, the writers' indivi- duals, our bookfolk. And so the night deepens. But before the first grey streak of dawn silvers the eastern sky, they have vanished,-A passing fancy, a world ever old:-ever new! SEYMOUR ARoNsoN. Class of 1934.
