We hither turned our steps and found a place Within the ranks of Nineteen Hundred Eight. And now we write upon these pages fair The names of those who best have helped us here To gain the heights we all too dimly saw And yet with trembling faith desired to reach. Tis they, our teachers, who with guidance true And words of counsel in discouraged hour Have turned our every weakness into strength And led us safely up the arduous path Of Art; our deepest gratitude he theirs. Within this hook we too would chronicle The names and worthy deeds of all our classmates Whom we have learned long since so well to know And much to love. And if in lightsome vein We here expose some cherished, secret faults Which they have dreamed we did not even guess. Then let them know we thus have dared to do. Oh, not because we loved them any less. But just because we loved plain truth the more! Yet not alone their faults are wriften here; Their virtues, too, recorded they will find — The good they have achieved, will yet achieve When soon shall sound life s clarion battle call And they go forth to serve the world s great need. That need they well shall serve, artel true fore er To that which gold and white doth symbolize. Their names may they inscribe on Times fair page.

His boyhood was mainly passed in Lowell, Mass., where he was fitted for college in the High School. He entered Amherst College in 1845, graduating in 1840. He received the honorary degree of A.M. at Harvard in 1859, and the same degree in 1865 at Amherst, where in 1887 he received the fur- ther honor of Doctor of Letters. From 1869 to 1893 he was one of the editors of the Popular Science News (formerly the Boston Journal of Chemistry), and for nearly twenty years had charge of the department of 1 S h ak espearia na ’ ’ in the Literary World and The Critic, being one of the “staff’ contributors” of the latter. In 1865 he published a “Handbook of Latin Poetry” in conjunction with J. H. Hanson, A.M., of Water- ville,Me. In 1867 lie published an edition of Craik’s “English of Shakespeare. ” Between 1867 and 1869, in connection with J. A. Gillett, he brought out the “Cambridge Course in Physics,” in six volumes. In 1870 he edited Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” and followed it up with editions of Julius Caesar, " “The Tempest” and “Henry VIII.” Other plays were called for, both by teachers and the general reading- public, and in 1883 the edition was completed in forty volumes. In 1906 Dr. Rolfe finished a thorough revision of this edition, also in forty volumes. It has long been reckoned one of the standard” critical authorities on Shakespeare, being quoted as such by leading English and German editors. He has been an instructor in the summer sessions of the State University of Illinois, Colorado College, and several other Summer schools. In 1903 lie was elected President of Emerson College of Oratory, a position which he still holds. p- The Emersonia 11 OFFICERS William J.

The Emerson system is based on natural laws of mind and body. The underlying principles of this “New Philosophy of Expression " is — from within out . — This develops those qual- ities of mind and heart which lie behind all forms of manifestation and which spontane- ously create the requisite artistic forms of expression. The “Evolution of Expression” is the fundamental work through the study of which the student is trained to apply the “New Philosophy of Expression” to his college work. The Emerson system of Physical Culture is based on physiological and artistic princi- ples and develops not only health and strength but also grace, beauty and responsiveness of body to the mental attitudes. Emerson College was founded, as a private school, in 1880 by Charles Wesley Emerson under the title of the “Boston Conservatory of Oratory.” In Sept. 1886, the school having outgrown its early quarters in Pemberton Square, it was removed to Wesleyan Hall, Brom- -«+ T h e E id e r s o n i a 11 19 + - ■ «» ft «» % O field Streets. Here it was incorporated as the “Monr-oe College of Oratory.” As a result of a petition to Legislature for a change of name, the Institution became known as the “Emerson College of Oratory” on Feb. 14, 1890. By the following year even Wesleyan Hall was inadequate to its growing needs. Ampler space was accordingly sought and found in Odd Fellows’ Hall, corner of Berkley and Tremont Streets. In 1889, Henry L Southwick, present dean of the college — resigned his position as Master of Elocution and Oratory in the William Penn Charter School, Philadelphia, to become Prof, of Oratorio and Dramatic Delivery at Emerson College and also partner and joint proprietor with its former principal and then president, Charles Wesley Emerson. In the following year President Emerson sold his interest and rights to Henry L. Southwick, Jessie L. Southwick and William H. Kenny. President and Mrs. Emerson remained in the College, however, until President Emerson’s failing health compelled his retirement from all teaching and public work. In 1901 the college removed from the south side of the city to its present home in Chickering Hall. From the time the new management undertook the responsibilities of administra- tion, the teaching staff has been increased from eighteen to thirty-two members, the Ora- torio, Dramatic, Pedagogic and Literature Departments have been greatly strengthened. A new department of Platform Art has been established and free private lessons included as a regular part of the curriculum. In 1905 Emerson College sent out 42 teachers; In 1906 46 teachers and many graduates are engaged in successful Lyceum and Platform work. Lender the management of Mrs. Southwick the Emerson College Dormitories were recently established. The social advantages of these college residences add greatly to the enjoy- 20 T he Emersonian .«» «» »- ment of the students sojourn in Boston and do much to bring the student and college into closer touch. Chickering Hall, the home of Emerson College, is located in the beautiful Back Bay district, and is surrounded by every influence that makes for progress in the life of an in- stitution of learning and art. Within a block of the College we find the New England Conservatory of Music, the foremost musical institution in America. Through an alliance with the Conservatory the general courses, the lectures, and valuable reference library are open as freely to Emerson students as to the Conservatory pupils. Symphony Hall, the home of the celebrated Symphony Orchestra, is just across the Avenue from the College. Besides the weekly Symphony productions, many operatic singers and musical societies present programmes here, and an opportunity is thus provided to hear and appreciate the world’s greatest music. The beautiful new Christian Science Church is directly in the rear of the College and the new Horticultural Hall is close at hand. Within five minutes’ walk of the College are the Fens. This Fenway consists of a park way system extending from Back Bay district of Boston to Brookline. Emerson stu- dents appreciate the natural beauty of the Fenway, and almost any day a score or more Emersonians may be seen enjoying long walks in this delightful section of Boston. Look- ing across the Fens, we note the “New Harvard Medical School,” “Tufts Dental Col- lege,” “ New Normal School,” “.Simmons College,” “Museum of Fine Arts” and Mrs. Jack Gardner’s Italian Palace. Taking an eight-minutes’ walk in a northerly direction from the College, we arrive at i i ir — » ir — ir — a r 1 .0 0 i 0 T he E in e r s o n i a n 21 Copley vSquare, with its treasures of literature and art. On our left stands the Boston Pub- lic Library and the “New Old South Church,” and just across the Square the “Boston Museum of Fine Arts” and Trinity Church, the finest ecclesiastical building in New England.

After spending his early years in the free schools, he completed the prescribed course at the Harris School, Dorchester, Mass,, at the age of fourteen. The following year he entered the Dorchester High School, and from here he was graduated in 1880. with high honors and as valedictorian of his class. He obtained a position on the Boston Herald; and for seven years “ Harry ” was a familiar figure about the Herald office; at this time he also attended the Monroe College of Oratory. His graduation in 1887 marked the closing of his journalistic work. The next year Mr. Southwick conducted the class in Oratory at Martha ' s Vineyard Summer Institute; and in the autumn he was made Master of Elocution and Oratory in the William Penn Charter School, Philadelphia. Eighteen hundred and ninety-six ninety-seven was spent with Augustin Daly ' s com- pany. In the fall of ' 98 he was called back to the William Penn Charter School, where for three years he taught as Master of English; but his interests were in Boston, and at the close of the third year he returned to Emerson College of Oratory and, in partnership with Mr. Kenny, purchased the school. Since then he has served as Dean of the institution. With the assistance of the mature judgment of President Rolfe, and the services of a compe- tent corps of teachers, Dean Southwick has succeeded in broadening and strengthening the courses of study, until to-day the College stands for a higher scholarship than ever before. In addition to his duties as Dean of the College, he is kept busy giving recitals during the winter vacations, and through the summer months his services are called for by many Chautauqua and summer school managers. And he is known to the public not only as a reader but as a lecturer. He gives many addresses upon literary and patriotic subjects. His “Orators and Oratory of Shakespeare,” and “Patrick Henry” are perhaps the best known of his lectures. At present Dean .Southwick is residing in Brookline where he and Mrs. Southwick, together with their three children, Ruth, Mildred and Jessie, are always “at home” to Emerson students. Not the least delightful of the many delightful memories which will linger with the alumni in after years will be the recollection of winter evenings spent at the Southwick fireside. 26 T h o K m e r s o 11 i a it CHARLES WINSLOW KIDDER FOSS LAMPRELL WHITNEY SILAS A.

This fair maid, modest and unassuming even in her carri- age, is descended from the famous Archibalds who centuries ago settled in Nova Scotia. She is known through the corri- dors as “Archie”; there’s a reason, for she certainly is not bald. She has long been noted for her regular features but irregular habits and knows all the cinch courses through personal contact. Her persistent zeal in cutting classes deserves special mention. Miss Archibald has dreams of some day being Mr. Sothern’s leading lady, but papa and mamma say, “Nay, nay.” The first on our list is Miss Archibald, No doubt there is more than one she’s enthralled By her wiles And her smiles, For the prettiest girl in the class she’s been called. 60 The E m e r s o n i a it •fr» O ' 1 Jessie Arguello, Racine, Wis. “Jess.” “Dreamie.” “ She thinks too much.

Worn out with too much study, she then went to Wisconsin for a much-need- ed rest. Her love of travel and adventure soon brought her back to Massachusetts, where she spent many happy hours “suping” for Julia Marlowe and incidentally absorbing dra- matic principles at Emerson. Her chief dissipation is man- dolin playing and her chief virtue is prompt and regular attendance at chapel. Her unpar- alleled success in the “Bachelor’s Romance” and “Rosemary” give promise of her future triumphs. Her margin will doubtless be spent in golf tournaments. There was once a lass named Arguello, Who never was heard to bellow; She was so well bred.

In class meetings she makes more noise than all the rest put together. She will be famous even yet, particularly after she has been put on the Emerson faculty as teacher of Voice.

Early she surprised her family by her wonderful dramatic ability; and later her instructor pronounced her nothing less than a genius. At Emerson she distinguished herself in male roles, and thi s has tended to add fuel to the fire of her ambition, so that it needs “no ghost come from the grave” to see her finish.

Davison, Boston, Mass. “ Davidson.” “A?i affable and courteous gentleman. " — Shakespeare . The year of grace 1886 first beheld the appearance of Everett H. Davison upon this benighted sphere, in the city of Biddeford, Maine. At the age of one year, he took his parents by the hand and led them into the Great West, where they settled among the savages and allowed Everett to grow up with the country. South Dakota was, however, too narrow an environment for the genius of young Davison, and he soon decided to leave his pleasant home and seek his fortune in the cold world. After experiencing a series of adventures which would make Nick Carter’s exploits seem tame and uninteresting, he finally arrived at the Hub of the Universe, Boston, and went into training to become an orator. He is a very common, every-day sort of an indi- vidual in manner and appearance, and spends most of his time in reading and in playing rag-time upon the piano. He is chiefly characterized for nailing every opportunity that comes his way and in hanging on to it with might and main, for he sincerely believes in Frank- lin ' s maxim, “ Never decline an office, and never resign one,” and he earnestly trusts that this policy will some day put him upon a footing with Teddy Roosevelt. He was very anxious that justice should be done him in writing this biography, so he has written it himself. Gentleman, student, musician too, Earnest, kind, obliging, true; Ready to think, to speak, to do, His virtues are many; and he’s true blue! ,«« i «» .

Sometimes they may, but not in Senior “Hamlet.” There is no shuffling; there the action lies in his true nature, and we ourselves compelled even to the teeth and forehead of our faults to give in evi- dence. 2d S. — Well, even if he doesn’t let them wiggle through, lie’s a mighty nice man. 3d S.

The Emersonian 135 T h e E in e r s o n i a n »- ► - ► »- .«» »r Echoes From th Rais ; s When Naughty-seven was bo rn at Emerson College, away back in the dark ages, it was found by the faculty to be a very enterprising and decidedly original offspring. Nor were their laurels taken from them, for through the ensuing years they continued to de- velop genius and spontaneity. As Freshmen, under Captain Garber, they were launched out bravely on the Sea of Difficulty, and with their flying pennants of corn and green set sail for the shores of Art. As Juniors with Captain Langdell, they stuck manfully to the ship, though the storms of criticism thundered around them. As Seniors, with Captains Johnson and Garber at the helm, they caught a few far away glimpses of the Promised Land, and sailed on strong, hopeful and fearless. Finally as graduates, with Captains Hastings and Shaw as leaders, they find the land of their dreams near at hand and will anchor with staunch hearts and true, ready for their life among the new peoples. P. G. year is great! Try it. Nineteen hundred and seven has been conceded by the faculty to be the best graduate class Emerson has known. Why? Take heed those that are to follow! Because it is so well organized; because there are no “odds and ends,” as might be expected, but all good workers; again, because their work as teachers has been exemplary and they have stood for something in the college life. And, last but not least, because there has been decidedly no lack of class spirit all through the year. If any doubt this last, notice when we yell. We are few in numbers, but — Oh, my! We are still proud of the distinction of having been the first class to introduce caps and The Emersonian 137 + - gowns into Emerson. Also it was through the Class of ’07 that the scholarship fund, already started by the P H 2 sorority, became popular in the various college organizations. By our starting the ball rolling the sum has swelled to $2500.00. They tell us it is better not to toot your own horn, but if we voice just praise we only say what others would say for us if we were’nt too quick for them. As graduates we are expected to stand for at least two of the many things taught here — that is grace and rhythm. Now here comes the toot. In our last stunt, presented Nov. 22, 1907, we stood for those two things, and more; and we are sure all admiring friends — and otherwise — will say this, the last of our four stunts was the best of all. A few of the chosen danced, a few of the other chosen donned a ghostly mantle and haunted the platform of Chickering Hall, con- vulsing the audience, not with fear but with laughter. Then we all yelled. You see we believed in doing as the Romans do, for as our audience had set the tune, we but joined heartily in the chorus. N. C. C. Cl S s With Apologies to Our class is small, but true and tried, Our yells are strong and bold ; The faculty they tremble When our stunts they do behold. Our fortress is the back row seats. We cry, “O, hark! O, see We know our voice vibrations From A straight through to Z. Well know the gentle Freshmen Our tender, fostering care; P o 1 M ‘Marian ' s Men.” We teach them grace and rhythm, And find out how they fare. ' Tis joy to be at Emerson And cry, Ma-za-ska-ah ! ’Tis joy to be at Emerson, But soon we’ll go afar. A short, short stay at Emerson, And then away, away ! The wide, wide world is calling.

And it came to pass that in the ninth month of the year of our Lord nineteen hun- dred and six a multitude of babies journied from the wildernesses into the City of Culture, which is called Boston. 2. And they assembled together in the Chapel of the Emerson College of Oratory where there were many others who had journied from the far countries to abide for a time in this great city of schools. 3. And a certain man, whose round smiling countenance completely charmed the babies, divided them all into three groups. 4. The Host of Children he placed upon the right hand, and the Host of Grown-ups he placed upon the left hand, but the Host of babies he placed between them. 5. And it came to pass that the Captains of the Hosts entered into their midst, and forthwith there was cheering and much making of noise. 6. And presently the Governor arose and spake unto them words of wisdom. And all bore him witness and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. 7. And in the days that followed the babies thrived and waxed graceful, and grew to be the pride of all the Hosts. 8. And as was the custom in that place, they prepared a “stunt.” Great was the originality thereof, and their talents were the envy of their fellows. 9. And the Governor, weeping, spake unto them words of congratulation and praise. And they (which were the babies) were astonished at his sayings, for his word was with The Emersonian 143 + - - - i- - -»+ truth and understanding. And the Children and Grown-ups glanced sideways at the ba- bies, and marvelled among themselves. And they all were filled with wonder at the amaz- ing meekness of these precocious BABIES. io. They grew rapidly in the knowledge of Evolution and of Bones until great fatigue seized hold on them. And, as the season of Hot Weather was approaching, they returned unto their homes for a period of rest. PART II. 1. The BABIES grew strong in mind and body during this time, and when they returned to their adopted city in the ninth month of the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and seven they were promoted to Children’s estate. And there were others who came that were then the Infants. 2. The child REN began to wax ambitious, and they agreed among themselves to amaze all by reason of their great enthusiasm. 3. Just before the great Feast of Yule-tide the long-heralded Calendar made its tri- umphant appearance. 4. And great was the pride of the children in their achievement. 5. And now a certain one of the Captains began to teach them her doctrine which was, “Satan is Hate! " 6. And another of the Captains taught them, saying, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, PetrucJiio is Love! Whoever shall seek to save his life (by being passive) shall lose it (when I get after him).” And great was the fear and trembling of the children. For a confu- sion of passions which passeth all understanding was upon them. 7. Oh, my children! In patience possess ye your souls, and avoid foolish conten- tions, for they are vain. If ye are led by the Spirit (of Impulse) ye are not under the Law (of Technique), and learn ye to choose with which of the Captains ye shall be led by the Spirit and with which of the Captains ye shall be led by the Law; for woe is he who chanceth to err in his choosing. 144 The Emersonian It O %■+ 4 8. And it also came to pass that the CHILDREN discovered that those whom they saw tearing their hair and shouting in a loud voice and breaking the furniture were not necessa- rily possessed of devils. These were striving to hear the much-coveted, “That’s right! You’ve got it!” And these, when they had heard those words from the Captain, returned them to their seats rejoicing. 9. And before many moons had passed, a group of the children consulted among themselves, and they banded themselves together for the purpose of Debate. And great was the growth in the Power of Speech among these few. 10. Now it happened in those days that every fourth year, having an extra day, was set aside as a time when the maidens might propose matrimony to the young men. 1 1. The children seized upon this established custom, and great was their zeal in the preparing of a “stunt” which was to be a Revelation of Genius unto all the other Hosts. 12. .So, according to their plan, on the eventful added day of that year (which was the twenty-ninth day of the second month) the Host of children made merry, with music and dancing, before the assembled Hosts and the Captains and Governor thereof. 13. And straightway all those that had witnessed the performance broke into excla- mations of delight, and with one accord proclaimed the children to be victors in the Bat- tle of Stunts. 14. And after these things they all marched into the outer court of the Chapel where there was great excitement as Host cheered Host until their throats became dry and swollen therefrom. 15. And never in the history of Emerson had such an array of Shining Lights been in the ranks of one Host as was gathered together in this Host. 16. Let all these sayings sink down into your minds; for, verily, they abound in wis- dom and in truth. And thus endeth the chronicles. Amen. H. M.

( With sincere apologies to Miss Smith, whose lectures on the Evolution of Expression were a light to lighten our darkness.) Let us consider, in their logical order, the four fundamental steps of mental evolution and the corresponding outward expression. Considered from the impressive side, these four stages of evolution are assurance, con- fidence, doubt, humility. Let it be understood, class, that this is the order of evolution in the normal freshman mind. There may be exceptional students, in fact, I believe I could point out one or two in the class of 1910, who do not begin with the primary stage of assurance. To such, of course, this theory of evolution is not applicable, but these cases are so rare that we are safe in accepting this order as natural. Assurance is the crudest state, and the shorter its duration the luckier the student. You will find many fine illustrations of the expressive side of this stage on registration day: a freshman showing the Dean a cutting from the “Homeville Enterprise” speaking in terms of highest praise of her interpretation of the title role in “ Pearl, the Pet of the Pemmican Camp”; a freshman assuring a patient senior that her recitation of the “ Polish Boy,” and other dramatic selections, has produced so many enthusiastic comments that the folks at home decided that she must study “elocution.” The second stage, confidence, is so closely related to the first that the end of one and the beginning of the other cannot be clearly defined. This stage is seen best expressed in The K in e r s o n i a n 151 the first recital. The “Genius Who Presides” asks all those who have read in public to stand. After some hesitation, there is a general uprising. The Genius’s smile is one of deep meaning. “Then you will all be ready to read from the platform next week.” In many cases, doubt begins at this point. It, you remember, is our third stage, and is the first of what we may call the destructive steps. Two weeks in the class-room does much to develop the doubtful stage. The student learns that she does not understand the use of her vocal organs; she cannot even be sure that she is “ready.” The highest ex- pression of this stage is, paradoxically, the agonized silence and inaction of the class when names are called on the next recital day. The duration of this third stage is variable and not at all definite. Indeed, we are not sure that it has passed into the fourth stage until, at the Easter holidays, we overhear the farewell remarks and troubled voices saying: “ They’ll expect me to be able to read some- thing. What shall I do? Do you think I could do ‘The Laughing Chorus’ and ‘Out to Old Aunt Mary’s?’ I know all the stanzas.” This leads us to safely conclude that the stage of humility has been reached. Was that the second gong? Then we shall have to continue the lesson next week. L. H. P. 152 The Emersonian The Emersonian 158 +»- -0 -» - r + SPECIAL STUDENTS 3 ! Agnes E.

POWERS, The Emersonian 155 156 The Emersonian THE HISTORY OF EMERSON COLLEGE MAGAZINE -Any school or college is incomplete without a paper or magazine, not only to represent the current ideas and relate the current events of the institution, but also to keep the alumni in touch with one another. So thought the alumni of Emerson College of Oratory, away back at the time when the last decade of the nineteenth century had just turned the corner. Plans for the establishment of a magazine were discussed, but it was not until December, 1892 that the first issue of the Emerson College Magazine was published, un- der the editorship of Mr. Cecil Harper. The primary aim of the magazine was faithfully to represent the methods and princi- ples of Emerson College, and to better obtain the end in view, the magazine was published under the direct supervision of the Faculty. This continued for two years, during which time by reports of lectures, original essays, etc., the paper was a true exponent of Emer- sonian ideas and methods. In 1894 the management of the magazine passed over to the student body. Although this change in policy was made, the contents of the magazine were not affected, except that to the contributions of the teachers, an article by a student was occasionally added. During the next ten years the magazine grew and expanded under such able editors as Miss Tourtelloh, Miss Phillips, Miss Dithridge, Miss Tobey and Miss Richardson with equally competent business managers. The articles on technique and art increased and the maga- zine faithfully portrayed the marked progression and evolution of the college itself. In 1904,3 radical change both in form and contents of the magazine was made. The teachers con- tributed very few articles, which dearth was made up by contributions by the pupils. Each «fr» «»- 1 «»- The Emersonian 157 + - ►0 1 0 4 0 number contained a special article on Voice, Physical Culture or some other department of the college work. In 1906, Miss Eva Johnson was given the responsibilities of editing the magazine and a department of Magazine Reviews, particularly valuable to the readers, was introduced. This current year, 1907-1908, Miss Agnes Smith has been editor of the maga- zine and Mr. J. A. Garber, business manager. The literary value has increased, the Fac- ulty biographical sketches have been most interesting, and the alumni and college news’ de- partments have had an unprecedented growth. The following poems have been selected from the Emerson College Magazine as be- ing representative of the many choice bits of verse scattered throughout its pages. LOVE AND LIFE. Love and Life and the summer slowing-. Love sing ' s low and the skies are fair; Love and Life, while the June rose blowing Fills with fragrance the dewy air. Love and Life, and the sunlight streaming Over river and field and glen Laughs with joy, and the glad rays beaming Waken the earth and it laughs again. Life is strength and Love is sweetness. Love and Life, and the world is gay! Love my heart and in true completeness Life and Love are your own for aye. Love my heart and with trust confiding Give your all, for to perfect faith Love brings Life, and in peace abiding Conquers sorrow and fear and death. — X. IN THE EVENING. When the lights are low, old comrade. And the hush of night steals on, Linger with me by the embers Till the last dim spark is gone. When the lights are low, old comrade, Closer draw your chair by me; Let no word offend the silence, As on memory ' s wings we flee. As the lights burn lower, comrade. Brighter grows our yearning sight; Now we know what is was not. What was is not; — out, dim light! J. A. Garuek. 0 «»- 158 1’ h e Emersonia n t» «» »» «» j “1 LAY UPON THE LONELY HEIGHT.” I.

I wonder why clouds in the sky Are always ' way, ’way up so high? And stars at night shine out so white They sometimes put me in a fright. And then the spring ' s a funny thing, With all the flowers it does bring And winter, too, when winds go whoo! Also puzzles me, through and through. I guess the clouds are little shrouds That angels use to wrap the crowds Of babies in, so white and thin, Who ' d rather die than live and sin. And then — the stars — Venus and Mars, And Saturn with the funny bars— What can they be, unless maybe Each is a lamp to light a baby?

Oh give me a night when drifts of white Go swirling through the gloom, And the poplars tall by the crumbling wall Like shrouded sentinels loom; When the pine tree lone makes shuddering moan As the shrieking wind goes by. And the moon grown pale is a shadowy sail Adrift on the cloud-swept sky. Eor on such a night when the logs burn bright In the fireplace old and high, And the shutters shake and the rafters quake To the wild wind ' s shivering cry, A mystical spell that I love full well Stealing out of the firelight glow. Bids me bury the past in the song of the blast For dreams that the past could not know. A. G. S. +»- TO RICHARD MANSFIELD (At the Time of His Death.) Good night! Fair dreams! The Master Prompter calls — Soft winds attend thee to the blessed isles; Our prayers are with thee on the lonely miles; Sleep till the oarsman sights the jasper walls. The house is dark: a brooding silence falls Where late thy spirit made thy art a shrine; We shall not hear thee speak the opening line Beyond, who sit below in earthly stalls: Cyrano ' s plume still waves above thy brow; The unsheathed sword shines as the morning star, Though Peer goes home, the victor of his quest, “The rest is silence.” Go, what waits thee now We know not, thou hast found thy stage afar. The King has summoned. Answer his behest. F. Allen. The Emersonian t r t r — ir — rr — rr — rr — r » r a — rr — ri e rr — » ri a r ■ r ■ a r ■ The Emerson College of Oratory ever since its organization in 1880, has occupied build- ings, not its own. These buildings, lacking in proper equipment, have always been un- satisfactory. The problem is, therefore, one of facilities, a problem that has been slow and difficult of solution. On the other hand, the school and its functions have been greatly enlarged. The faculty, beginning with three, now number thirty-two; students have increased in numbers from a mere handful to a present enrollment of nearly four hundred; and, from the single department of Oratory, there have developed four main departments, each larger than the original: Oratory, Dramatic Art, Physical Training and Pedagogy. The school has thus be- come the largest of its kind in existence. But this enlarged and rapidly growing school is without funds; a well equipped college building is needed; dormitories are needed; gymna- sium, library, endowed chairs and scholarships are all needed. How can these needs be met ? This is the same question that confronted the students fifteen years ago; and at that time a definite movement was put on foot, which resulted during the next few years, in subscriptions to the amount of three thousand dollars. Following a number of years of quiet, the students have again aroused themselves to action. ( The IntorsMt College Kndowmont Movement I — i The Emersonian 161 +»- To discuss the needs of the College and ways of meeting them, the student-body, together with the faculty and a small number of the alumni, assembled in Chickering Hall, April 8, 1908. After a short deliberation, it was decided to start an endowment for the college thru individual donations. An appeal was immediately made to the assembly, which responded with great enthusiasm, donating over thirty-six hundred dollars; twenty- eight hundred of which came from the students alone. Plans were then set on foot to make a direct appeal by circular letter to the alumni, and to all others who might be interested. It is worth while to note here, with reference to the endowment, the position taken by Dean Southwick, who is joint owner of the College. Whatever interest he has, profes- sional or financial, he is willing to give up, when a board of trustees has been appointed and sufficient donations made to place the College on a safe running basis. In order to form and execute to better advantage the plans of the endowment, some form of a students’ organization was proposed. Without debate and without one dissenting vote, the proposition was accepted. Miss Alice Daly was elected president; Miss Kathe- rine Kelly, vice-president; Mr. Nathaniel Rieed, secretary, and Mr. William Harrington, treasurer. It was early foreseen that this organization might comprehend functions other than those connected with the endowment. Anything touching the student-body as a whole — discipline, the Magazine and Year-Book, College Entertainment, and the College Book-store — may be put under its control. Just when these things shall go into students’ hands will depend upon conditions in each individual case. But the constitution and by- 162 T h e K in e r s o n i a n +»- 0 «» rl» „Q It laws, which are yet to be adopted, are expected to make provision for them; and thus the organization will start with a broad base. Hence, at this meeting, which must ever be memorable in Emerson history, two de- finite things were accomplished: A college endowment movement was revived and a stu- dents’ organization formed — two things fundamental in value and far-reaching in effect. How well they shall be blessed, we cannot here surmise, but certain it is that Emerson College is nearer the realization of her hopes than ever before. And if these hopes are realized, we shall pay back in our lives the multiplied tribute of those who helped us; but if they be not realized, we shall not fail, but only fall, and then rise and struggle again — - and then again and again.

The club has prospered in every way. Last year they showed their good feeling and loyalty by presenting a Canadian silk flag to Dean Southwick and by a golden contribution to the scholarship fund. They are planning even greater things for the future. - - +- .0 • j 170 The Emersonian T he E m e r s o n i a 11 171 -«» «« n »» «» 1 «» «»- DELTA. DELTA PHI Founded at Emerson, 1001.

Phi Eta Sigma, realizing the increasing necessity of a complete Reference Library in connection with Emerson College of Oratory, and wishing to leave there each year a memento of their love for Alma Mater, has this Com- mencement formulated the plan of establishing a Phi Eta Sigma library as a gift to the college. Naturally the Em- erson student turns first to the great dramatist, Shakes- peare, and next year will find a substantial addition to this branch of the library. It is their purpose that this gift shall be but a nucleus to which they will add each successive year until a complete Shakesperian library is formed, and when that object is attained to follow the same plan with some other author.

Good-byes mean partings; then divergent paths. Three years, three very little years they seem! As we look back what mem’ries cluster round ! What friendships and what ties do they em- brace ! Have not these years been worth the while to us ? Our schoolmates, as we give this book to you, Please judge our faults and failings leniently. We do but blaze the trail for those who come; To them we wish unparalleled success. We hope, fair reader, when you close this book jiC ilff tit jiC (% 43Sr ■ ' 4®» ' Tis not because you can no longer stand Odor of roasted senior that doth rise From out these pages ; We did not mean to scorch a single one. And if we ' ve hit someone a little hard, We tried to be impartial and go canny. Imperfectly at best, have we but held The glass to nature, and exposed some foibles, And all is writ with feelings of good will. Now, as we give Emersonian to you, Our chief regret is, ' tis not better. But if it bind each closer to the other By ties of love and ideals striven after, Our task is done. ' Twas but a pleasure, This book, expression of our evolution. P j : P ( P I P jj frt u J. 7?

We suggest these points as material to work from: First — We were the originators who retailed shoes up one flight, instead of the ground floor store, this saving a large rental. Second — We handle only samples from the best makers in America, contracting with them by the year, and saving from 20 to 40 per cent, off wholesale price. This saving is an important one. Third — Our policy is to sell our goods at the lowest average profit possible, knowing that if we save you from $1.00 to $2 50 a pair on your footwear. You can have one-third more shoes than the regular shoe dealer can give you for the same amount invested. We want to call our customers’ attention to the fact that we have only two stores in Boston, one at 74 Boylston Street, corner Tremont Street, Rooms 21 and 22, and the other 493 Washington Street, three doors from Temple Place, Room 2. Our reason for this article is to call your attention to the fact that a number of sample shoe stores have opened up of late claiming to be branches from our stores.
