I 58 1 3 Just !% o tori ( A FT EH KIPLING) In the high and far off Times, 0 Rest Beloved (but not so very high or so very far off), there lived in many parts of the United States many nameless Individuals who felt within themselves a longing for Higher Education. And so. () Best Beloved, these nameless In- dividuals besought their dear families to allow t hem to go and seek their Education. So one fine morning in the Procession of the Equinoxes, and I think, 0 Best Beloved, that it was in the year 1912, th( dear families of all these nameless Individuals gave them large amounts of advice and sent them away from Home. Weeping much, the nameless Individuals arrived in the beautiful be- nign bean city of Boston, on the banks of the chilly Charles River, and they looked around for a place to obtain the Best Higher Education. By and by, O Best Beloved, to the Expressive Educa- tional Emerson, and here they decided was the Place they had been looking for. “Here we are,” shouted all the nameless Individuals, in a loud and at that time, ( ) Best Beloved, very unexpressive voice, “we have come to Expressive Educational Emerson to get our Higher Education.” Xow you will know and understand, ) Best Beloved, that up to that very week, day, hour and minute these had been nameless Individuals, but now the other attendants at Educational Expres- sive Emerson attached to them the op- probious epithet of Fond Fanciful Foolish Freshmen. And tin other attendants did scoff at these Fond Fanciful Foolish Freshmen, and caused confusion to come upon them. Which act, () Best Beloved, you understand was exceeding cruel. But the Fond Foolish Fanciful Fresh- men were not easily frightened, and they worked with exceeding great diligence, at Expressive Educational Emerson which is in the beautiful benign bean city of Boston on the banks of the chilly Charles River. Much time did they put in learn- ing to hum a correct M, or buzz a cor- rect Z. or articulate a correct A, and all the time you know and undertsand, O Best Beloved, these Fond Foolish Fanci- ful Freshmen were beginning to lx edu- cated. So well did they evolute, express and expand, that often the Kindly Know- ing Kapable Pedagogues would praise them, thus giving them great Joy. By and by, O Best Beloved, when the Fond Fanciful Foolish Freshmen had struggled sorely through much, and found out how little they knew, then did come in the Procession of the Equinoxes the merry, mystical month of May, and then did all the Fond Foolish Fanciful Fresh- men, weeping copiously, depart from Educational Expressive Emerson, in the beautiful, benign bean city of Boston, on the banks of the chilly Charles River, and go home to all their dear families, in many parts of the United States. All that summer did those Foolish Fond Fanciful Freshmen so orate, hum and expound, that all their dear families in many parts of the United States be- came exceeding worried. “Go again,” said all the dear families in many part- of the United States to the Fond Foolish Fanciful Freshmen, “go again to Educa- tional Expressive Emerson and learn how to do these things better, for of this way are we tired.” So in the fall of the Equinoxes of 1913 did these Fond Foolish Fanciful Fresh- men receive more advice, and return to the beautiful benign bean city of Boston, on the banks of the chilly Charles River, and when they had come again to the Expressive Educational Emerson they said to the other attendants of whom, O Best Beloved, you must understand they were no longer afraid, “Call us no longer Fond Foolish Fanciful Freshmen; we wish now to be called Jolly Jumping Juniors.” And so. O Best Beloved, they were known by that very name. That very fall these Jolly Jumping Juniors made themselves famous in Expressive Educational Emerson by giv- ing a Dance, about which Dance, O Best Beloved, you will know and understand that the less said the better. Many things did these Jolly Jumping Juniors do, under tin leadership of one Jean McDonald, who kept them all busy at sundry tasks. They would sell Sandwiches at the noon hour, and express their well learned pan- tomimic “kid joy” at the money netted thereby. They would learn diligently tin class yells as taught them by one Ruth Southwick, or the class songs as played for them by one Irene Dickson. Madly, O Best Beloved, did they pursue one Albert Smith, imploring him to accept their class dues, which he did reluctantly. Even did these Jolly Jumping Juniors give a Vaudeville Show, to which many of the other admiring attendants of Expressive Educational Emerson did come, and at which much hitherto unsus- pected talent was brought to light. Along in the same Procession of the Equinoxes, O Best Beloved, did come a Junior Week, during which time they did much distinguish themselves. All the other attendants at Expressive Educational Emerson, and even some- times the Kindly Knowing Kapable Pedagogues would say, “What wonderful Jolly Jumping Juniors they are.” Which statement, O Best Beloved, you know to be correct. Thus did the year go by, and the Jolly Jumping Juniors were being more highly educated all the time at the Expressive Educational Emerson in the beautiful benign bean city of Boston on the banks of the chilly Charles River. But whether these Jolly Jumping Juniors ever became Serious Sedentary Studious Seniors I cannot tell. However, you, 0 Best Beloved, will know and understand. Jfumor Alphabet A is for Action, for as you all know The pace that the Juniors set is really not slow. B is for Bradford so stately anti tall, And also for Bradley the smallest of all. C is for Conat and Chandler and Cole, Good Juniors all three, both body and soul. D is for Dickson, from far Texas State, She’s known for her music, which surely is great. E is for Evans, a maiden demure, And for Emerson, too, the reason we’re here. F begins Farwell, Flanders, Frazine, And many others, whom I’ve not room to put in. G is for Gildersleeve, her first name is Amy, And also for Greenwald, Margaret A. H is for Heinline, she comes from the West, As well as for Henry, noted for absence. I is for interpretation for which we all strive, We shall keep on st riving while we’re alive. J is for Jette “Georgie” petite (pro- nounced to rhyme with sweet) And for Carolyn Jones, whose smile is so sweet. L begins Lovejoy, Albert Russell in full. He’s “there” with the ladies, who all hope for a “pull.” M stands for McDonald, Miller and Mace, And for others we’d mention if we only had space. N stands for nothing: for the sake of a pun We’ll say it’s for nothing this class hasn’t done. O is for Oratory at Emerson College, We absorb it along with the rest of the knowledge. P is for Beatrice Eleanor Perry, And also for Privett, a southerner cheery. R is for Root, a good friend to each one. She’s always on hand and ready for fun. S stands for Mr., and Miss Smith and Miss Snyder, With the Misses Southwick and Sturde- vant along beside her. U is for Utterance grand and sublime Over which we are waltzing most of the time. V is for Marion whose last name is Vin- cent, Time we’re talking with her is not mis- spent . W is for Williamson from the far western coast, And for other sweet maids of whom we may boast, X is Xcellent training we get, Our good times as Juniors we cannot forget. Y is for You who these verses will read, Please criticize gently, they need it indeed. Z is the last, a very hard letter, As we think of nothing it starts for, to leave it out will be better. [ 61 ] Junior ZKUrcU Tuesday Morning. A pleasant introduction to Junior Week was the hand- painted programs by Miss Waterhouse. The Juniors inarched into Chapel headed by President Jean MacDonald. The girls in white and all the men in blue. The President distributed the class flower, Jack Rose, to every member, after which the class gathered on the platform. Miss MacDonald gave a short speech of welcome to everyone and an invitation to partake of the various entertainments of Junior Week. The class sang some very catchy original songs, and were greeted by some fine cheers by the student body. The week opened with most successful exercises. Wednesday morning. The Physical Culture Drill with Miss Goodrich’s clever poem for the harmonizing movements, was a great success. The work of the girls revealed hard practice and earnest thought on the Emerson Exercises. Miss Far- well led in an easy, graceful manner the Misses MacDonald, Goodrich, W hite, Jette, Fisher, Bigler, Benjamin, Evans and Frazine, who certainly deserve great credit for this exhibition. Thursday Morning. After some excellent vaudeville by Misses Goodrich, Brad- ley. MacGill, Gildersleeve, and Marrinan, the “Emerson Sisters” entertained. With their tall red dunce caps, white gowns and red band boxes they proceeded to assas- sinate ou r sacred rules of expression. The manner in which “the sisters” “let go” and the farcical “turns” pleased the audience. The Post Grads showed their appre- ciation by giving the “actors” a shower of variegated paper ribbons. Under Miss Bradford’s leadership the Misses Sprague, Smith, Southwick, Bradley, Marrinan, Sturdivant, and Waterhouse, made very interesting “Emerson Sisters.” Thursday Evening. — How did the little Junior Class do it! Copley-Plaza ball room, distinguished patronage, fine music, great “eats, " exquisite gowns, good danc- ing, no tango, characterized the very successful Junior “Prom.” The dance was a brilliant affair and a most satisfactory party to students and faculty. Friday Morning. — Second Annual Farce of the Emerson Co-ed Society. “Thirty Minutes for Refreshments,” with an all star cast. The men certainly did justice to a screamingly funny farce. All of the parts were well taken in this most amusing incident of Junior Week. Friday Evening. — The Juniors attended the Phi Mu Gamma Play in a body. The acting of the sorority girls was of a high standard. “A Virginia Courtship” was produced in a manner that showed good training and conscientious work. The Phi Mus are to be congratulated for their excellent production. Saturday Morning. President Southwick brought the exercises of the week to a close with an informal talk to the students. The P. G.s again showered the Juniors with paper ribbons, this time from the recesses of the balcony. Some good songs and hearty cheers brought the week to a close as far as the student body was concerned. The Juniors appreciate the good will and hearty fellowship evidenced by the other classes during the process of Junior Week. Saturday Sight. The Junior Banquet took place at the Hotel Hemenway. President MacDonald presided, with Mr. Kidder as toastmaster. The dinner was prepared with great skill, and the class partook of the feast with no less amount of dexterity. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Mr. Kidder made an ideal toast- master, and indulged in everything from “stump the leader” up to a good story. Speeches were made by Misses MacDonald, Meredith, and Jette, and Messrs. Love- joy. Flanders, and Smith. A most successful banquet finally closed a very success- ful Junior Week. The committee in charge of the week, Misses Meredith, White, Miller, Hainline, and MacDonald, and Air. Lovejoy, deserve great credit for their good work. Miss Meredith is worthy of special praise for her faithful services as chairman of the committee. The Class of 1915 is heart ily congratulated and greatly pleased.

Eljc JLobe ong of CHpljctts (ARRANGED FOR HARMONIZING MOVEMENTS) As the last, sweet, lingering note was drawn From the lyre of Orpheus, he impatiently Hung To one side the beautiful thing that lived And throbbed at his touch, and leaning his head On his hand, gazed wearily into the water That ran at his feet. At his side Euridice sat And was sad at the sight of his grief. “What has happened, my Orpheus?” sin questioned at length. And la answered: “The lark will not list to my song! I have sung till the gods themselves have come down From the Mountain Olympus and have sat at my feet, Hut the lark ever sings her own song And will not listen to mine!” But Euridice Laughed, and softly she whispered to him, “Oh, Orpheus, vainest of mortals! The lark Singeth not for the praises of gods or of men — And she smiled in his face; but he understood not What she said, but continued to mourn, because one Of the least of Jove’s children hearkened not to his song. Thus time passed away till at length the silk thread Of Euridice’s life was cut by the Fates And she left him. Then Orpheus knew how he loved Her, and he cried in his heart, “Euridice! Why [ 78 ] Hast thou gone and left me alone in the world? Oh, ye gods, give her back to me now, for 1 need her.” Thus wandered the lonely Orpheus, weeping And sighing with sorrow, till even the beasts Of the forest were moved by his tears and prayed with him. Then the gods were so touched by his grief that they granted His prayer, and Orpheus went down to the kingdom Of Pluto, where dwell the shades of the lost ones. And they brought Euridice to him and told him To lead her away, but not to look into Her face till they had passed the portals of Hades. Then Orpheus, taking her hand, joyfully Guided her footsteps, ever turning away His face, lest he be tempted to look on her. But just at the gates of the world, the injunction Forgotten, he turned and held out his arms To receive her. But she shrank from his clasp and fled from him With a long, low cry of reproach. Then Orpheus Saw his mistake, and attempted to follow, But hideous shapes rose to threaten his progress And drove him back through the gates and closed Them upon him. Thus Orpheus lost his Euridice. All prayers unavailing, day after day He wandered the woods, neither sleeping nor eating. The beasts of the field came, trying to share in his Sorrow, but he regarded them not But wandered or sat, ever silent and speechless. One day as Apollo was guiding his steeds Toward the westward gates of the heavens, Orpheus Fingered his lyre, and memories crowded Upon him. Sweeping the strings he drew strains Of such ravishing sweetness, that even the winds In the trees were hush’d to hear him the better. All of his longing, his love, and his grief he poured Into his song; singing not for the praise Of the gods, who were weeping to hear him, or draw tears From the rocks that lay at his feet, but only To her whom he loved, to tell her of his mourning. And as the last note, like a quivering drop Of celestial sorrow, had faded away, A lark dropped down at his feet anti lay there Panting and sighing. But Orpheus saw not The bird, nor knew of his triumph, for his fingers Relinquished the lyre, and with the song On his lips, he went to her who was waiting. Lorraine Bailey, ’ 14 .

Ask Neighbor Right if she has any new or startling idea for a speech. If she has she will probably keep it, so your next move is to ply the question to Neighbor Left — all the while, of course, taking into consideration that the roll call will soon be completed. Almost without exception, Neighbor Left will be a new girl unfamiliar with startling ideas or otherwise upon the art of speech making. The next stop is a very delicate one. (live your right foot — the left foot can be used, but the right one brings a quicker response — a decided shove for- ward, whereupon, the girl in front will answer your wireless message by saying she never made a speech in her life and is scared pink over the mere thought of ever having to write one. There are but two more chances left now. Gaze wildly in search of a most intimate friend who always has her lesson. You will find that she does not take Original Oratory. Now, by the power of the law of association, of which you have heard so much, endeavor to re- member a speech heard at some previous time. If you succeed in formulating a neat, right-to-the-point speech, you will not be called upon to use it that day. A. B., T3.

[81 ] 3 (Kmc torp It was in July a few years ago and the city was sweltering through a spell of torrid weather. Only those sought the street who were compelled by circum- stance. This condition had existed sev- eral days, so it was not unusual to set ' the broad avenue of the business dis- trict deserted. Hut the appearance pre- sented by the little blind alley directly back of this district, in which most of Boston ' s C ' hinese element lived, was extraordinary. The few days previous had seen this place teeming with long- queued folk. I ' he Boston police had learned that absence of signs of life in this place was of evil portent. So this condition of affairs had a direct con- nection with the fact that in the ward room of Station 7. a detail of eight- een extra policemen lounged, smoked and argued. But their presence was generally unknown, even to the emissaries of the press. About four o’clock passersbv on lower W ashington Street were a little amused at seeing a slim Chinaman clad in silken jacket and queer slippers which threat- ened every minute to desert him, fleeing from the direction of Harrison Avenue and a little later rush up the steps of Station 7. He rushed in, grasped the rail in front of the sergeant ' s desk and in a frightened and breathless voice gasped, “Muchee killee, muehee killer Sarg, " continuing in Chinese. But already the desk bell buzzed. The sergeant reached over tin rail and grasped the Chinaman with one hand, reaching for t he telephone at the same time with the other. A voice came over the wires: “(Jarrett talkin’, sir. It’s breakin ' get ’em here quick! Mack an ' mo ' ll be in the alley.” The riot call was given, the door sud- denly opened and an army of blue-coats rushed out and over t lu same route bv which the Chinaman had come. As they reached Beach Street, a shot was heard. This seemed to be t lu signal and was followed by a rattle of revolvers, shrieks and a panic of traffic in the side streets. At the shock of the first shot, the blue-coats rushed on and into the alley, clubbing their way and searching the mob of Chinamen for strangers, whom they swept before them. Mack was wrestling with a young Chinaman en- deavoring to overpower him. To the young fellow’s wrist was strapped a re- volver. hot from the fray. Mack grabbed him by the collar and dragged him to where he had seen Garrett fall from a shot aimed by the Chinaman. He called to Garrett but there was no response. The bravery of the young officer had carried him into the thickest of the scene and he lay there with a bullet hole in his temple. In the meantime the patrol had ar- rived and a dozen ( ’hinamen were quickly loaded into it. Mack threw the limp body of the Chinaman down on the ground, swung Garrett to his shoulder, and again grabbing the Chinaman by the collar, dragged anti carried them, emerging from the alley just in time to intercept the ambulance as it dashed upon the scene. The police, after a fierce struggle, quelled the riot, but not until several had been killed and wounded. The patrol was hurried to Station 7 and the ambulance to the relief hospital. With a moment’s investigation of Gar- rett, tlu physician pronounced him dead and turned his attention to the young ( ' hinaman, who in spite of a gash on his forehead was smiling amiably and pos- sessed tlu appearance of anything but a murderer. His face was attractive and bright and one could not but be drawn to him as he gazed about him in an interested manner, watching eagerly every movement that went forward. His face was that of a mere boy and more than one expressed sympathy and pity for the young lad who in some way had become the leader of a band of murderers. His name, 1 learned, was Ah Sing. A year later my friend Hughes and I were seated at a table in the club room, smoking and talking. “So you visited the State Prison to- day,” remarked my friend Hughes. “Yes,” I replied, “and sat in the elec- tric chair just to see if ' I could imagine the sensation a poor fellow would have who was about to breathe his last. It’s a harmless looking thing, isn’t it?” “Quite so,” he answered, “but I can tell you an incident connected with that place that may stimulate your imagina- tion somewhat. “You probably remember the Chinese riot which occurred a year or so ago and knew of the three men of the gang who were sentenced to death.” Well, being a member of the press 1 was attendant at the trials and their development. In these trials, for the first time, the organizations known as the Sep Hong Tong and the Ong Lee Tong were brought before the notice of the Boston public. One of the three convicted of murder in the first degree was an interesting chap of about nineteen years whom I could but watch closely as did many at the trials. “In court he presented a somewhat pitiful appearance. His shaven skull displayed long white scars from wounds received in the Tong war. But there was not the vicious look of a murderer upon his face. It was bright and intelligent looking; his eyes and skin were clear and the manner imputed to him was not one of dignity merely, but sanctity. His companions were an opium-de- praved laundryman and a fat merchant. The boy, whose name was Ah Sing, was without relatives it was learned and a member of the Sep Hong Tong, while his companions were of the Ong Lee Tong and should have been, even in their cage, deadly enemies of the boy. “If they were, it seemed to be of little interest to Ah Sing. His keepers declared him to be a model prisoner and even sang his praises to the newspaper men. He wore always a smile at the dull proceed- ings of the court and even when the prosecuting officer called down the bit- terest wrath upon him, he would only smile and shake his head a little eagerly. As he stood before the bar, he seemed interested more as an observer than one accused. Thus it was that this boy won our sympathies and we could not but feel that he was somehow a victim of circumstances. “The facts learned from his testimony were not surprising to us in a measure. The two Tongs that waged this war were secret factions, old in the history of the race and terrible in their enmity toward one another. To be a member of one of these societies, a Chinaman must be fear- less, binding himself to the rules with the strictest vows of obedience. He in his ancestry worship believes that the past generations of his household look down upon him and that dire calamity is due, should he fail to uphold his vows. He bows before the shrine of his father and in filial obedience pledges all he has to the cause of the Tong. If he is called upon at any time to give a son to the cause, the sacrifice is made. “Ah Sing had left his home under these conditions, his father having been bound through life to the Sep Hong Tong. The son had been sent to this country to lead his Tong in their attack upon the other. The boy told how his father had explained to him that he was a merchant and was sending him here for the furtherance of his interests, and how he had come eagerly, with bright prospects and an- ticipation for what he might become in the wonderful America about which he had heard so much. “When he discovered the real cause of his coming, true to the promises made to his father, he had entered into the under- taking with a loyalty and bravery worthy of his race, and was now ready to die for the same. He was a murderer, not by choice, but by circumstance. “When the foreman of the jury pro- nounced him guilty and the clerk asked him if he understood he nodded and awarded both a smile. His own sentence seemed to arouse in him no emotion, but a look of unutterable scorn crossed his features when the fat merchant collapsed as his sentence was pronounced. His composure and smile returned, however, as he was led from the room. “As a reporter I was present at the electrocution. A gloomy dank fog had wrapped Boston in its folds and it was a somber company, made up of twelve witnesses of the execution, that filed through the murky dawn, down the narrow cement walk that leads from the prison along the stone wall to the room of execution. The huge lock was turned, the heavy door swung open and we were marshaled into the dead silence of the death chamber. No word was spoken. The warden addressed the witnesses with the formality of the law. " In a trance we passed through the first two executions our thoughts being centered upon the boy and wondering how this puzzling bit of humanity would receive the death which seemed so unjust and terrible for him. " Ah Sing sat in his cell all the while, playing a game of solitaire and still wear- ing his happy and interested smile. When his cell was unlocked, he stepped out bravely, almost eagerly, and glanced about him at tin ' warden, witnesses and apparently at everything in the chamber. There was not a tremor in his body as the death march was begun and when the warden read his final doom, he only nodded as he had so many times before. " He was led to the chair. He stepped into place and sat down as if preparing for some pleasant surprise. He glanced at the walls of the room as if inspecting the workmanship of tin ' building. He looked at the ceiling. He scanned the floor. He smiled as he gazed intently into the corner where the witnesses sat. The room was dark save for the solitary light directly over the chair. He ad- justed his feet and ankles into their place and offered assistance in tin ' fastening of the straps. He placed his arms upon those of the chair and inspected the cla sps closely, much as a child does a new found toy. He broke into a soft laugh when the electricians adjusted the re- maining straps and threw a half dozen clamps into place which were quickly snapped. “These straps and clamps gleaming under the glare of the light like tentacles ready to clasp tin victim, seemed to hold no terror for him. Seated six abreast, tlx witnesses shuffled their feet uneasily. They could not discern each others’ faces. The helmet was dropped over his face which was last lighted with that imperturbable smile. The stillness was terrifying. The warden raised his hand. The electrician saw the sign. He grasped the lever. With an accurate and powerful stroke he shoved it into place. The boy’s body stiffened quickly, causing the straps to creak and the clamps to rattle. But it relaxed in- stantly for the first current had done its work. “And that chair,” concluded Hughes, “is the one in which you sat this after- noon.” " es, " 1 replied, “and I followed the incidents of the trial in the newspapers, being particularly interested in this Ah Sing, but 1 have another chapter to add to this strange coincidence if you will permit.” Hughes watched me with a puzzled expression as 1 drew a letter from my pocket. “Pardon me, " 1 said, “for reading a personal letter, but I am sure a portion of this will interest you deeply. It is a letter I received this week from a young missionary in China, a dear friend of mine and one who is heart and soul in her work at the missions. Her letters are always interesting, some descriptive of the country and others telling of her work in the boys ' school. I will not burden you with all of it. “ ' And what is so rare as a day in June?’ Really I am homesick and but for the exquisite beauty of this place I feel I should literally turn my back on the ‘heathen’ and take the first boat that leaves port. A wonderful picture greets my eye as I sit and gaze out into the court. Dame Nature has decked it with her gayest tints of poppy red and yel- low and on every bamboo trellis, or screen, age old and prolific ramblers twine in profusion, their color lending striking contrast to the delicate hues of the poppy beds. A continuous bank of flags about the four walls gives the least impression of substantiality to the color- ing of the court. The air is fragrantly balmy, and the sun, a few hours risen, has dispelled the chill of a dewy dawn. In fact all life is gay and I would be, but for the fact that tins day brings back all too vividly the likeness of another almost two years ago, whose events I can never recall without an intangible sadness. “ ‘You would hardly remember my writing to you of it, and the departure of one of my dear boys for New York. 1 had thought sometimes to ask you to hunt him up during one of your visits down there. For I grew so fond of this boy with his sunny disposition and win- ning ways. He was a great help to me [ 84 ] in my work — although he was not wholly a convert. I was a frequent visitor at his home for his parents liked me. Ah Sing told me many times that if I could interest his father in the missions he would come too. I worked long and earnestly with both, and they were just on the point of accepting our faith. Then came that day — that took my little Ah Sing. As I sit in my court now writing this, the balmy air and faint odor of poppy beds recalls vividly the events of that summer’s day. “ ‘First Ah Sing came himself to tell me that he must leave that day for the wonderful America to take charge of his father’s interests as a merchant. I went with him to his home. The father seemed very sad, as he explained that his interests in America depended upon the speedy arrival of his son. Though I questioned him closely, I could get no further information from him. There seemed some mystery, which I could not even guess at. As I sat talking to the sad little mother, I could see in the little court the youth, who was kneeling reverently before the shrine of his fore- fathers. When he finished this exercise of veneration, he arose and waited. The father entered, and spoke to his son in solemn and subdued tones. “ “Lesser son of the house of Poh Yang, in the West continent forget not that thou art a holy man. Sao Tze, celestial prince of the Strong Principle, long gone before, has given the lesson to our illustrious house, Ize Moh gave the demonstration. Heaven and Earth ex- hibit no benevolence; to them ten thousand things are as straw dogs. The name that can lie named is not the eternal name; the reason that can be reasoned is not the eternal reason. The unnamable is of Heaven and Earth, the beginning. Wherefore, the holy man is like to an unfathomable vessel into which flows all the namable, the vessel remaining empty. He who sustains and disciplines his soul, embraces Reason, the Unnamable, and cannot be deranged.” “ ‘When he had finished Ah Sing stood awhile in meditation, thinking no doubt of the spirit of Gze Moh, who four hun- dred years before had opened both arteries before the Empress, when he had failed to check the advance of the Manchus, bearing down upon the capitol. “ ‘He bade me farewell, left the court and entered his ricksha which was waiting in the highway. This was the last time I saw little Ah Sing. A day later he was sailing on the steamer Empress, to make his home in Boston. “ ‘I have told you this much, thinking that since you are interested in the mis- sion work there, that you might find him in one of the schools. Our parting was sudden, and I have always felt the presence of some mystery — especially as I can get no news of him from his parents. He is such a bright, happy boy and an earnest worker — and could help you in the mission work. Will you write me if you know anything of him?’ “Ell not read further, but tell me, Hughes — - how am I to answer that?” E. M. G., ’14. Commencement program baccalaureate Sermon Kkv.

Then take a deep bowl wherein all the neces- sary ingredients may be mixed. It must be endowed with a large amount of receptiveness. Be sure that it is per- fectly clean. If there are any hard, gloomy pieces clinging to the corners and edges, they are apt to give a bitter flavor, and spoil the entire affair. Use some boiling hot water and a little Dutch Cleanser, which will quickly dissolve them into insignificance. Dry thoroughly and let no drop remain which in any way resembles a tear, for that may prove suggestive. Have ready a big spoon, the handle of which should be made of backbone because it is less apt to bend and go to pieces under the process of stirring. You must have in mind a great purpose. Then put in a pound of the funniest events that ever happened in your life. This will surely draw laughter and produce a sweet forgetfulness of all imaginary troubles. This will also create a pleasant and companionable atmos- phere for the parts which follow. Then add several pounds of work and use the spoon with energy, then add a cupful of hope which tends to make it light and flaky. Stir well. Add a little grit, in order to keep a certain firmness of pur- pose with which you started out. Add another pound of work. If it is getting too heavy to stir, put in an ounce of enthusiasm. This will have a wonderful effect, but it must be stirred in only one direction. Put in a spoonful of persist- ence, as this will make it very smooth, then a cupful of tears for others’ woes. Beware that they are not for your own, or they will give a briny taste. This must be followed by a quart of neigh- borly acts, and real smiley -smiles. The latter are very inexpensive. A tea- spoon of large-heart edness will have an expanding effect. Season with plenty of common sense, and hustle it into the sunshine to bake. Serve with gra- ciousness. (Dpportunitp I strolled along a thoroughfare, Opportunity was there, I heeded not her bawling. Later I strolled in solitude, Opportunity afar viewed My failure, it was galling. Later in years I took a chance, Opportunity from my trance Had wakened me to my calling. Now I’m happiest in the land, Opportunity took my hand, And we gave Sloth a mauling. G. F. P„ ’17.

The Association is officered by a presi- dent, a vice-president, secretary-treas- urer, and the students’ council. This council consists of three officers of the Association as officer ex-officio, and twelve other members — three from each class. Regular monthly meetings are held by the council and here plans are discussed and recommended that help the student body as a whole, and also the Alma Mater. This year the council has been busily engaged in paying off old debts of the Association, amounting to nearly three hundred dollars. This work, however, is near completion. The Emerson College Magazine, which is published once a month throughout the year, is under the control of the Association which has also had charge of the College Year Book, The Emer- sonian, during the last four years. It is the great unifying element of all the student body. I 96 ] MAGAZINE HOARD (Emerson College jflflagajme E ditori i Belle McMichael . Virginia Beraud Docia Dodd Jean West Edith Goodrich ....

It im- bibes the Emerson atmosphere and sends it to all parts of the country to the alumni and colleges interested in oratory. The magazine serves as a connecting link between the graduates and their Alma Mater. It is the medium by which they may keep in touch with the college and the college may keep in touch with them. Within its pages are found articles pertaining to the technique of the work, contributed by persons of professional note and experience; cuttings appro- priate for platform readings chosen from worthy literature; selected poems; and college and alumni news.

SOCIAL SERVICE Many think that the splendid ideals received by the students at Emerson radiate only within the four walls of Huntington Chambers, but they extend far beyond. One ray shines particularly bright in the social work of the students at the Civic Service House. The Emerson training espe- cially fits the student to organize and direct classes in social work. On every Friday and Sunday evening at the Civic Service House classes in Debate, Articulation, Dramatics, Public Speaking, and Psychology are held under the direction of Emerson students. It is a joy to watch the growing appreciation and satisfactory results in the classes. On the last Sunday evening of each month the Emersonians give their time and talent for an entertainment which is enjoyed by all. May more students come to realize that the doors of the Civic Service House are doors of oppor- tunity for them. The watchword of Walt Whitman will apply in this work: “The gift is to the giver and comes back most to him.” Mattie Riseley, Chairman Extension Committee F. IF. C. .4.

Gore Helen Bartel Remembering that Loyalty to a Cause is the fire by which an individual or an organization is strengthened, Zeta Phi Eta has endeavored always to hold the greater cause of Emerson as the object of her loyalty. The Sorority has striven, by upholding a high standard of scholar- ship, by promoting a greater interest and ex- cellence in Dramatic Art, and by exemplifying in all places the true spirit of Emerson, to strengthen each individual within her number and thereby fulfill her cause of greater loyalty. As a permanent step toward this goal Zeta Phi Eta has given each year to the support of a special case in the Emerson College Library, in 1913 nine valuable books were added to this collection, chosen with great care and wis- dom by Professor Walter B. Tripp of the Col- lege faculty. Zeta Phi Eta takes pleasure and pride in this work for her Alma Mater.

Prolong your vowels.” Professor ' s collar wilted down Th while he paced the room around And urged her with his ow-oon-ow-oon Prolong her vowels. Twas interesting quite; With open throats and O’s He led them toward the “light” And overcame their woes In Vocal Tech. So throughout the years to come We will hear their voices hum And remember all the fun I n ocal l ech. H ' enboi When earth’s last tax is collected, And the land is rolling in gold, And the last collector has perished, And the richest home has been sold, We shall curse, and faith we shall mean it, Perhaps shed a sad tear or two, For the master who levies taxes Has set on our income too. And only the poor shall be happy, They shall sit back and gloat for a while; They shall come up with glee to three thousand And then sit back with a smile. For they are exempt from taxation, They are ranked with the poor, that is all; They work for a year for three thousand And never grow tired at all. And only the wealthy can curse them, And only the wealthy can blame; The rich shall maintain creation Since they have won in life’s game. They moan in sheer desperation, But each in his separate star Pays over the fee which is taxed him, For the God of Things as They Are. Cfje JfreSfjtnan’s oltloqup (with APOLOGIES TO SHAKESPEARE) To work or not to work: that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to rest In peace on withered laurels, Or to take a chance against a sea of studies, Or by the venture fail them; to fail; to flunk No more: And in the flunking we say we end the battle And the thousand natural shocks that we are heir to. ’Tis an ending greatly to be feared, to fail, to flunk; To flunk: perchance get bounced: aye there’s the rub; For in that bounce what jolts may come After we have struggled from these learned halls, Must give us pause: There’s the outcome That makes the exit of so rough a path, For who would bear the whips and taunts of time, The scholar’s jeers; the proud man’s criticism, The pangs of bygone joys, the law displayed, The insolence of friends, the grating scorn Which the unworthy take, when we ourselves might our own laurels make With but a struggle? Who would insults bear, To moan and wait under a heavy stress, But for the fear of something later on, The undiscovered future whose realm no palmist can read, Puzzles the will and makes us win our laurels now Than fight for others that we know not of. Thus conscience doth make cowards of us all And thus the native love of resolution Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought, And misfortunes of great pitch and moment In this regard their currents turn away And lose the name of action. Soft you now, The Dean appears! Sir, in thy orisons be all our sins remembered. [ 115 ] £f)e Hast ZDap (APOLOGIES TO KIPLING) " What arc the Seniors bawling for?” Said Freshie-all-Dismayed : " They’re leaving school, they’re leaving school” The Knowing Teacher said. " What makes you roll your eyes so wild?” Said Freshie-all- Dismayed; “I’m dreading what I’ve got to watch” The Knowing Teacher said. They are drooping in the class rooms — I can hardly pass them by — ■ And they ' re hanging out the windows and weep- ing fit to die. They’ve taken all their suit cases and sent their trunks away, And they ' re leaving poor old Boston in the morning. ‘‘What makes them all rush into Hood’s?” Said Freshie-all-Dismayed ; " To get a cruller for keepsakes” The Knowing Teacher said. " What makes the front rank girl fall down?’ Said Freshie-all-Dismayed ; " She ' s bitten one, she’s bitten one” The Watching Teacher said. 1 hey re leaving good old Boston, but before they go away fhey’re visiting their favorite haunts all (he blessed day; I he ve visited the Art Museum, and stolen bits of clay, -Mai they 11 be tearing for the station in the morning.” ■ ' 1 hey ve always seemed so dignified,” Said Freshie-all-Dismayed ; “Ah! those were happy days for me” The Pensive Teacher said. " 1 ve heard them read a score of times,” Said Freshie-all-Dismayed ; “They’re speeding far away to-night” The Knowing Teacher said. For they re done with dear old Boston you can hear the faintest sav, And ding-dong from the engines are calling them away. Ho! the bravest one is quaking and they’ll feel no cheer to-day, But E. C. O. will get them in the Autumn. Cfjop ticp Evie took a walk one day, Evie who? — Evie Lution.) And she met upon her way Mee-miself — (now the solution). Mee-miself to her did say, For glory to our nation) “Pray share with me a single ray From your store of Animation.” But stuborn Evie merely smiled, (Alas, she is more kind than clever!) And fluttered over hills away; So all that Mee-miself could say Was, “Land o’ (lohsen! Well, 1 never!” There once was a Senior named Sadie W ho apparently was a nice lady. Her voice, it was sound And were you around, She’d hollar, “A dollar!” would Sadie. Girls visiting cooking classes should wear diamond rings on left hand to show they are in earnest. See Bennet and Tanner for partic- ulars. “Actions speak louder than words” — See McDonough and Stokes on Gym floor when silence has been ordered. There was a man named Xewton And he was high faintin’. " Votes for Women” to him Was a rash, silly whim; So he told this in class And each maiden, alas! Rose up and most " finished” poor Xewton. There was a young maiden named Dot, Who was so exceedingly short When she reached for a strap She instead found the lap ( )f a smart college chap! Oh, shame on you, Dorothy Dot! Chappie took first prize in the loud waist contest — Scribner was close second. Mrs. Henderson — champion of Normal Class. Fxpcrienee speaks: — When ordered off Gym floor, go at once, nor make further mention of the fact.

It teaches oratory as an art resting upon absolute laws of nature, explained and il- lustrated by exact rules of science, and gives a thorough training in all the principles upon which this art is based. The complete course qualifies students to become professors and teachers of elocution and oratory in institutions of learning, as well as to become public readers. Seventy graduates w T ere placed last year in colleges, normal and high schools , academies and seminaries, and more than fifty were working under various enter- tainment and platform bureaus. A complete system of Physical Training and Voice Culture, a new method of Analysis, Natural Rendering, Gesture, and the principles of the new r Philosophy of Expression are thoroughly taught.

Those things called dear are, when justly estimated, the cheapest. They are attended with much less profit to the artist than those which every- body calls cheaj3.
