T II K K M K K S O N I A N .)( SI.Mnii CLASS HISTORY In l he year ol our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty -one, there came to the portals ol I ' tnerson (College a hand of students, collected Ironi all parts ol the world: deter- mined to show their new faculty and fellow students how magnificently class spirit could become the guiding factor of their lines. ith the help of a gracious senior we organized our group into what was commonly called. The Freshman ( .lass. (•in first public appearance found its being in a class stunt. We do not claim that it was the best stunt ever produced but we modestly assert that it was one of the best, limned up b this achievement we planned a dance. Now in those days a Freshman dance was a thing to be spoken of in hushed tones. It simply wasn’t being done, never- the-less we did it. The ear that followed was strongly uneventful. As Sophomores most of our energies were devoted to training the new freshman class in the way it should grow. I he production of a remarkable pantomime furnished a respite from our arduous duties. s third ear students and high ranking upper classmen we plunged deep into the activities of Junior Week. We played, sang and acted for the entertainment of our facultN and Classmates. Our Junior Prom was an event that n i 1 1 long linger in our Memories. W ith i n i«l visions of what failure w ould mean to our Prom Committee and Class in general Nve went to work as never before. Of course nvc succeeded. Our anxiety " served as a means to tie us closer together. The year book established its own fame, not onL b the material between its two embossed covers, but also by the ayve- inspiring promptness of its publication. Which brings this chronical ol events unto the last year the saddest, gladdest year of all the four saddest because it marks the end ol a -meet joyous lile- gladdest because it marks the beginning of a iicnn existence. We have been “up in recital ; we have struggled and worked with T ri p p n on the Senior Play and Dramatic Art. we have laid glorious schemes for sneak day; it is nn ith a bit of a catch in our throats that we approach our commencement exercises. The ideal that we have worked for is almost within our grasp. In a lew short days yve shall once again play, sing and act for you. We yy i 1 1 smile thru it all, of course we will, no dignified senior could do less. Deep in our hearts yye y i 1 1 be wishing it were not so quickly ended. Next year there yvill be others to lake the places we have held. We hope you yvill not entirely forget us. We shall never forget you though we must bow before the inevitable, for as alyvays.

ALICE WHITESIDE Z $ H Youngstown, Ohio i THE E M ERSON I AN JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Once upon a time — in truth, three years ago Destiny held up his mighty hand. And gathered here and there and all around A most illustrious hand. He then contrived to send them out To prove their worth and name And to the Land of Emerson It happened they all came. A thing called “Custom ' ’ ordered them To plan a show or stunt And so they did — (and thought Twas good) But others were quite blunt And murmured long “Ah, this won t do” And toward the last of May The band returned from whence they came Until another day. Then they returned. But Destiny First warned them, so they say, That they should make this second year Remembered many a day. And so they planned a Pantomime Of Oriental taste; And neither work nor talent Were put to any waste. Now lo! the Land of Emerson Applauded and approved. And thus the first years ' error Forever was removed. Then Destiny spoke yet again And said “In your third trial You must put on a Junior Week And Prom that is worth while!” And so it goes — this goodly band Must strive to keep its name, For now they see that Destiny Has recommended Fame. To those who e ' er have helped them All through their weary climb They now extend with feeling Their thanks in words of rhyme. And to those who leave and go their w ' ay At the close of this present year, They hid “good luck” to follow them With wishes most sincere. The page is spent — the ink is drv There’s no rhyme left — except “Good-bye!” Edna Cass I ' II I I M K [{SON I A N JUNIOR WEEK Pile Junior Week of 1925 opened Puesrlay. February 24. at 9:00 A. M., with scene laid at some time in the future. Two members of the class of 1926. now old Emer- sonians. sat drinking tea in a lea garden. Their conversation brought out the fact that they had met at a convention, and that there were a number of other Emersonians in tow n. t this point the rest of t lie old class of 1920 came in. singing a song to Emerson. Margaret Kelly, chairman of the song committee, led the singing as the old Emer- sonians celebrated the fame of Emerson faculty and traditions. When finally the last encore had been giv en, the farewell song to the Seniors was sung. After their response, the two classes marched out with the time-honored laurel-spray ceremony. On Wednesday the scene was very much in the present, and the school witnessed the beginning negotiations for the Forty -Twoth Revival of “Six Bits.’ This (lever sketch on Emerson faculty was written and directed by Virginia Robards. and the characters out-facultied the faculty ver successfully. One might say that the |da was w ritten along English lines, in that there was no star part. Each was given opportunity to do his own particular line. Thursday was given over to a Junior Recital. Cynthia Altshuler. Phyllis Rivard, Mary Kate Ford. Alabel Marshall, and Dora Mitnick were the readers and presented a very charming program. The Juni or Week address on Friday was given by Agnes Knox Black. She spoke very interestingly on the women in Shakespeare ' s plays. The staff has endeavored to procure a copy of the lecture for those pages, hut unfortunately Mrs. Black has it only in note form thus far. Saturday morning the Junior ( lass presented its annual original pla . This year’s production was Hrloi.sc and Abelard , a romantic tragedy of 12th Century Paris, taken Irom the old historic love stor of Heloise and Abelard. Miss Alice Pearl Whiteside, ol the playwriting class, made the dramatization and with the help of a well-known Boylston Street antique dealer, devised a ' triking pictorial effect in the staging. Mis Whiteside appeared in the role Heloise: Rudolph Friedrick. Abelard: Edna ( lass. Canon l ulhert: Edith fitzgerald. a Priest: and Doris Finman and Esther Baldwin, two students in the prologue. After the pi ay, members of the Junior Class with lighted candles in formation to ' pell out E. ( . ().. knelt before the stage and sang the farewell song to the Seniors. Mler the song, the Juniors stood on either side of the aisle while the Seniors marched out under the soft glow of the candles. Junior Week terminated Saturday night in a Prom at the lintel Somerset. Plans had been made far ahead b Edith fitzgerald. Helen riiompson. and Zara Culp, and the success ol the function well merited their efforts. The music was irresistible, the ballroom delightful, and the favors lovelv. Each girl received two silver bangles joined with an Emerson seal, and her escort was given a silver pen-knife adorned with the seal also. Patrons and Patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E. Connor. Mr. tnd Mrs. W. H. Kenney, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles W. Kidder. ' the la t note ol the Home Sweet Home number died awa . Junior Week of 1925 passed into history. T II E E M E R S 0 N I A IN THE PROM The prom is the rhythm of youth; The prom is a colorful song. As the countless brocaded toes Go winding and gliding along To the silvery moan Of a saxophone — Whoo-wacka whoo-wacka whoo. The shimmer of silk gleams out; The soft, clinging velvets entrance. A cloud of chiffon floats free, As girls smile by in the dance To the silvery moan Of a saxophone — Whoo-wacka whoo-wacka whoo. Oh spirit of youth, you are here In the color, the music, the light. You glow from the eager eyes That are shining joyously bright To the silvery tone Of a saxophone — Whoo-wacka whoo-wacka whoo. T II K K MERSIIN I A N APRIL 29. 1925 Listen. m children and von shall hear — No. not the ride of Paul Revere But of a happening that won renown In city and hamlet and neighboring town: How the Juniors barred the Senior’s way From cutting a class on the Senior Sneak l)a . The Seniors challenged — the Juniors took heed Discovered the chairman with mysterious speed. But feeling that Seniors needed recreation. The Juniors allowed them a little vacation. And the Seniors enjoyed the day But thev like good sports have promised to pay The Juniors, and now all is fine. But who will ever forget the date of April 29. President .... OFFICERS Carolyn Stanley Vice-President . . Frances Brinkerhoff Secretary-Treasurer . Claudia DuBois Student Council . . . Maude Bean Every year innumerable histories are being written oi this thing 01 that and in one respect they are all similar. Each history has a timid, fearful beginning— like the Sun trying to burst forth from behind a cloudy sky. We, too, were filled with an undefinahle dread as we entered Emerson College a? ' freshmen last year. This feeling soon passed thru the various stages ot wonder, despaii and encouragement to the stunt when we made our first public appearance. J he com- mendations received after this, heartened us up considerably and made us hope that w had climbed perhaps a rung higher on the ladder to success. Then this fall w f e returned to Emerson with a great eagerness to do something. So we gave the freshmen a party and tried to make them feel as welcome as we had been made to feel. After that we enlisted our time and hearts in an effort to make the min- strel show a success. Now we are awaiting the time when we can prove in pantomime that we have been working to make the school proud of us. And so as great oaks from little acorns grow, as the tiny bud blooms into a half blown rose, so may we, the class of 1927. grow to be worthy of the school we represent. Marian Beckley SOPHOMORE MINSTREL On Saturday evening March 7, the Sophomore Class staged a minstrel show in Huntington Chambers Hall with a ‘‘Hodge Podge” of vaudeville numbers comprising the customary “Second Part.” The proceeds went to defray the expenses of the annual Sophomore stunt. Carolyn Standley, president of the class, was the interlocutor. The six end men were, Esther Flanagan, Laura Shepard, Eleanor Mulligan, Lucile Ferrell. Martha Allen, and Marion Beckley. There was a chorus of twenty-four voices. Other Sophomores who participated are: Dorothy Morris, Celia Dlott, Hilda Whiting, Elizabeth Blouke, Frances Cooladge. Lucile Evidge, Esther Peterson, Rachel Sampson, Madeline Chaffee, Mary Frances Brady. Veronica Boyle, Aileen Willenar.

It was at this time we learned who our mates were in the " Green Bark ' of the Freshman ( lass. Elizabeth C. Humes was elected president of the baby class: Rachel Batson, vice-president; Esther Cantor, secretary; and Margaret Andrews, treasurer. We were now plowing the deep quite smoothly, when our dangerous harbor, as we were told, was seen ahead of us. This was the Freshman Stunt, which harbor, every class has to enter. Our making sure and safe course to the dock, would establish our name and record for the class of 1928, Juliet Ph i Mips was appointed chairman and so steered our bark safely through this passage. She had the happy thought of turning our stunt into an animated cross-word puzzle, which was a travesty on f reshman subjects. Alter our stunt, we all met together at the Hotel Westminster to eat a delicious luncheon and make merry with our classmates. Now it is nearing May 23, and we are approaching Port Sophomore. The Green Bark has taken us as tar as it can. and we must disembark, for it must go back for the newcomers, the Glass of 1929. However, we shall never forget the hist quarter ol our voyage on the Green Bark. Elizabeth C. Hi mes. T II E E MERSDNI IS ()•’ FRESHMAN STUNT HI NTINGTON CH MRERS II LL Tm rsdav.

In order to understand how the editions we have come down to us, we must consider the condi- tions of publishing in Shakespeare s day and the relations of the play-houses with the publishers. He wrote for the stage, not for the press, and in no volume containing his works is there evidence that he saw it through the press. How then, did they come to be printed? That is our story. The editions of Shake speare s plays may be divided into two groups: separate plays printed in quarto volumes (books the size of a quarter sheet of printed paper I before 162 d, and the First folio (volume the size of a half sheet of printing paper), a collected edition of all the plays except " Pericles. Our texts trace their lineage back to one of these two sources. Early in the history ol English printing there was little supervision over the pub- lishing of books, and competition was unscrupulous. Philip and Mary granted to a guild of publishers, The Stationers Company, a charter under which no one but a member of said company could legally possess a printing press. Throughout the Elizabethan period the press was controlled directly by the company; wardens of the company acted as licensers in ordinary cases, and in doubtful ones, the Archbishop of Gantebury, the bishop of London, or some other dignitary. When the license was gi anted, the permission to print was entered upon the Register and it was from these records that dates were obtained, and the authenticity of texts established. It was a safeguaul to an author to get a good text before the public, and indicates that good copies were obtained in a legal manner, purchased directly from the theatres, either from the copy possessed by the prompter, or from some transcript of the play. Authors wrote their plays solely for use upon the stage and sold them directly to managers. The managers in general believed that the printing of a play lessened its success upon the stage. But in some cases which were very rare, some unscrupulous person attended the play and took it down in shorthand and sold his copy to the printers, which, we readily see, gave a very poor copy. More frequently however, copies were sold by the players themselves, or b r the manager or prompter. 06 T II K E M E RSON I AN Main authors at that time were paid by printers for the privilege of using their manuscripts, but it was not the proper thing for a gentleman to be paid for literary work. Robert Greene, playwright and novelist, wrote regularly in the employ ol printers. Francis Bacon published his essays only to prevent the appearance of an unauthorized edition. It was possible for an author to stop a publication by prosecu- tion. but it entailed such legal difficulties that is was hardly wise to do so. During the vears before 1.623, seventeen of Shakespeare ' s plays were published in ipiarlo lorm. the first class of which contained good texts, but the second class was composed of distinctly bad copies. Two were pure piracies, not registered at all; two were registered by one firm, but printed by another: another was entered and trans- ferred the same day. These were carelessly copied at performances, or pirated, and were bad I y bungled, shortened, and very different from the original. In the light of these facts, it is not at all surprising that so much criticism of what is Shakespeare ' s own work and what is not has accrued, (ionsidering the changes that were made by managers, copyists, and printers (w ho. because there was so much inter- lining ol remarks hr the managers and such a confusion of stage business, had to rely upon their own judgment in determining what to include), and the number of plays that were w ritten by someone else but accredited to Shakespeare in order to gain recog- nition for them, the marvel is that today we have as clear an understanding as we do. despite the quibbling over whether Shakespeare used a certain word or phrase, or whether someone else changed it. In 1619. Th omas I’avier and William .laggard, two London printers, decided to get out a collected quarto edition of Shakespeare ' s plays, but gave up the idea, and issued onl nine pla s in a uniform size, which were later bound as a single volume, “The W hole ( ' intention Between the I wo famous Houses of Lancaster and ork. And four cai- later. Edward Blount and Issue laggard entered for their copy in the Stationer ' s Register a number ol other plays, the rights of which were owned by various printers who. together, were able to get out an apparently complete edition. The editors must ha e secured the manuscripts from members of Shakespeare’s Company, for two of ihem. John Heminge and Henry Condell. affixed their names to the “Address to the Keadci. in which they said their aim was " so to have publish d them as where before ou were abused with divers stolne and surreptitious copies, maimed and deformed, l lie slea 1 1 lies ol Injurious copyists, we expos’d them; even those are now offer’d to your n " . ciude and bereft ol their limbos, and the rest absolutely in their parts as con- Muw d them who a he was a liappie imitator of nature was a most gentle expresser of it ”, I hen in 1 02.). the I - i rst folio was brought out by Heminge and Condel 1, consisting ol tliiity -six plays, twenty ol which were printed for the first time, being taken prob- ■d ' E- directly from cop ies in the possession of Shakespeare’s Company, and which, ll l ,on 1 1 ' • whole, were excellent texts as the editors themselves had done some work on THE EMERSONIAN 67 the prompt books and their work was more true. In place of some of the other plays already in print in quarto form, they substituted independent texts from better manu- scripts. Many of the quartos were used with additions and corrections, and in nearly every case the quarto was corrected from a later theatrical copy. This tedious work demanded much painstaking care and diligent effort, and it is to them that we are greatly indebted for our present day texts. The rights and titles to the plays passed through different hands and were printed with changes and alterations to make them more correct in the Second Folio, the Third Folio, and the Fourth Folio. Since th e time of the last folio, many men — men either famous or obscure, men of letters, and trained specialists, have made careful studies of Shakespeare’s works, of other Elizabethan writers, of the usage and meaning of words, and the conditions of printing in that time, and have given us editions which are a very marked improvement upon the old text. Nicholas Rowe produced the first edition in the modern sense. He modernized the spelling, repunctuated, corrected, made out lists of dramatic person®, added entrances and exits, and completed the division of the pla s into acts and scenes. Alexander Pope published his famous edition, with its laughable explanations of the meaning of w ' ords, the dropping or altering of the phrases that appeared vulgar or unpoetical and the rearranging of lines to give them the rational, studied smoothness so characteristic of the eighteenth century- — in fact he made them as nearly like his own poetry as possible. Other editions, with changes, of one kind and another, followed in quick succes- sion, and we can trace them through Lewis Theobald, Thomas Hanmer, Warburton, Samuel Johnson, Edward Capell (who compared the readings of the quartos and the iolios, and initiated the tendency to get back to the earliest form of text, and not to try to present what he author thought Shakespeare should have said), Edmund Malone, James Boswell, and J. 0. Halliwell. The first good American edition was that by R. G. bite, and following it came the one by ( lark and Wright, known as the Cambridge edition, which was printed with a few changes as the Globe edition, and the chief latest work is the Varilorum edition by Dr. H. H. Furness and his son. Fiom this we see how the plays of Shakespeare have come down to us from their first presentation, through the various editions taken either from the quartos, the folios, or from a combination of the tw o, or a compromise between preceeding editions to the one with which we are now so familiar, that of William J. Rolfe. To this collec- tion of editions, we look forward with much interest to the addition of that by Dr. E. Charleton Black. Virginia Robards I II I ]■ M K R S () N I N ( )o HSSA ON DRF.AMS AND DRI AM MAKING The quantity and (|ualit of vour dreams depends entirely on how much fairy ancestrv you have. The life ol a fair depends on such stuff as dreams are made of. so with fairies numbered in your ancestry you are sure to have coursing through your veins that Mab-given gift of making a living happiness from a revery horn of a nothingness. A tld ng once said or done passes from our control. It stands forever. What a load of responsibility to assume for just plain honorable living! But with dreams there is a difference. our dreams are your own. forever in your possession. They stand side In side w ith your soul and thoughts as the trio of vour immortality. As your dreams are: so are you. Dreams make vour destiny — Not what you do! What a wealth ol possibilities the possession of a dream presents: A ou may wrap it around some one like a skillfullv designed gown which hides imperfections and reveals only good points; you mav even go so far as to make the wearer, too, of ( I re arris. Or von mav take the silken thread of your dream to make a cocoon, as a guard from the ' ' winter of our discontent " : or make a magic circle of protection wherein to stand — that none may pass to w reck your temple. — W it h dr earns you can make a new heaven and a new earth. lo dream is to stand on the edge of a fathomless abvss, gulleyed out by the cease- ' c-- flow ol Imagination into the sea of Fancy. What does it matter if you dizzy with blaring down. , It is better to be lost in a dream than to be swamped in realities. Realities are circumstances created bv other people as a quicksand to suck you under. It is ordv bv the faith in your dreams that you can be lead across safely r on dry land. I here will always be talk that " lacing the realities of life is one s duty but is it any more of a duty to face realities than to make dreams? fter all. how few realities are worth living for! Dreams are anticipations: realities are realization. It it not true that anticipation uis a perfectness of detail, a glamor of beauty, and a smooth coursed action with a happv ending that realization seldom, if ever, combines in its fulfillment. I he dreams of a child for its doll, of a bride for her husband, of a mother for her -on of a teacher for the pupil, of a young man for his life work how beautiful they all are in anticipation and vet how far short of the mark falls the realization. T II K E M E II S O N I AN 60 Disillusion in someone or something from which you expected only the best in your anticipatory dream is truly a tragedy; but though the dream fulfilled may be disillusion; the vision is eternal. One can never lose the moments or hours of dream- making; that precious time when nothing matters, when a law into yourself you “Grasp this sorry scheme of Things entire To shatter it to hits and then— Re-mould it nearer to the heart ' s desire! Oh the power of a dream! Think how the dream of one man has swayed a whole world; Alexander. Napoleon, the Kaiser — with their dreams of power and possession, our religious dreamers — Christ, Luther, Dante; our dramatist dreamer — Shakespeare; our scientist dreamers — Galileo, Bacon, Franklin, Edison, our philosophy dreamers— Aristotle, Socrates, Plato. — every century can name its great men. and every great man can be named a dreamer. It is only the great dreamer who was. is and shall 1)6 the great doer of the world. I hough it does not follow that the dreamer is a great man. it is a fact th at every great man is a dreamer. It is true that there are dreams too perfect, — so beautiful that they can never be more than just dreams. These become as angels that fly from the heart heavenward: for alter all, Heaven is only the place where all good dreams are fulfilled in perfection. Dream-making is the only one of the arts that can be accomplished at any time and in any place. In a hot and dirty railway station, one needs only to make a dream to he whisked on the strength of it as on a magic carpet, away to a silver afternoon in Spring where once stretched out on the ground surrounded by the frowziness of new grass blades you can watch the peta ' s that filter through the warm air from the richness ol the blossoms high above you. and find there quiet happiness. In a crowded office, at a stiff, dull tea. in a cabbage-scented kitchen, or in a greasy grimy mill, you can dream of whatever you will. No barrier can shut your dreams from you. There are dreams of pleasure, of service, of selfishness, of triumph, of love: your dreams can be just what you will them to be. “Dream true” for your dreams will have far more to do with your eternal salvation than your petty job on earth. There is nothing in the world that can equal the the emotion that sways the dreamer. ho can define it? It is a sort of quiet rhapsody, with the ecstacy of antici- pation as an ever recurring note. It is a song-without-words that sings its haunting melody in the heart. Someone is saying that dreams and dream-making belong to the young, and that somehow the fairiness in the veins becomes hardened with the arteries. Perhaps you you being older are right. Being young. I only listen and dream on. Alice Pearl Whiteside " 26 Til T II h E M K KSONI N EMERSONIAN MOODS NI TENSES “There was a little girl. And she had a little curl Right in the middle ol her forehead. And when she w as good She was very, very good. But when he was had. she was horrid. Because I am w riting for Emerson, and Emerson is in Boston, and Longfellow was eminently Bostonian, I am leading of! with him. If Emerson were in (Chicago, I would have started off. " Hog butcher of the World — . However, the (lowers that bloom in the Spring, tra la. have nothing to do with the case. So pardon the digression, and I will proceed with the subject at hand. For in the above-mentioned poem, we have a little girl in the throes of emotion. In short, she is having a mood. Emersonians need no explanation of moods; Emerson is rile with them. Almost am stranger entering the halls of Emerson would he struck b the moods going on all about him. I here are moods and moods, and some girls at Emerson are true mood-artists. They pass from one mood to another without the slightest inconvenience- save perhaps to the onlookers. Some canons of their creed are the following, " I can ' t. I m not in the mood. " I m just in the mood for that. " Oh. il i could put my hands on the mood. To see a school girl in a mood is like seeing a pomengranate in a glass of butter- milk: it moves strong men to laughter or to tears. No girl w ith a true sense of humor indulges in moods, that is. she does not go in for them with the true fervor of the typical Emersonian. I lie outward symbols and symptoms of moods, are these: a wildly rolling eye, a number of shrugs with either the right or lei t shoulder or both, a wildly fluttering hand which is occasionally clutched above the upper torso, and above all. the sweet melancholic assertion. " I cant 1 m not in the mood. I m in the most difficult mood today. Oh moods, moods, moods this is as much as to say they are fools who have moods.

Every year Dean thinks he has been successful in keeping his birthday a deep, dark secret, but love never forgets, and on each anniversary he is presented with some token of regard. Year before last a Wee Bit o Scotch program celebrated the momentous day. Last year multitudinous bows of purple and gold accompanied a goodly sum of Dowment Dollars in a prett song ceremony. This year the big day came on Sunday, and Dean thought he had escaped, but at the end of chapel on the following Tuesday the students returned to him the time they have wasted for him. This bit of “time was a gold watch which Miss Helena ( ook, President of the Students Association, presented to Dean.

Winn and business management of Professor J. E. Connor. Again this year the policy of alternating plays in the theatre with road shows every other Saturday was in effect. Plays produced by “Boston’s largest stock company during this season were: Little Women The Three Rears Treasure Island The Gift of the Fairies A Christmas Carol Little Men The Princess in the Fairy Tale Mrs. Murray’s Dinner Party The Gardener’s Cap Alice in Wonderland Little Lord Fauntlerov As we go to press, plans are being made to produce “Cinderella in Flowerland” May 2 with a cast of the children who attend the Childrens’ Theatre performances. This experiment is designed to give the young playgoers a bit of dramatic experience and to increase their interest in the theatre. Miss Winn believes that in this way their taste for good drama will be deepened, thus fulfilling one of the main purposes of the Childrens’ Theatre. T H E E M E R S 0 N I N 115 ENTERTAINMENT SERVICE BUREAU The past year has seen the Entertainment Service Bureau in great prominence. Individual entertainers as well as group entertainers have been sent by the Emerson bureau to fill engagements in Boston and vicinity. One group, the Eco Trio filled an engagement in Maine during the Christmas holidays. Other groups are the (dionion Trio, The You and I Players, The Kerwin Group. The Culp Trio, and the Kappa Concert Company. Individual entertainers who have filled numerous engagements this season are Helen Brown. Mary Elizabeth MefTert. Florence Day. Lillian MacLeod. Zara Culp, Elizabeth Buchanan, Marion Steeve. and Ruth Day. T H K E M E R S O N I A N FRENCH DEPARTMENT PLAY On March 29, the French Department, under the direction of Prof. Joseph Palamontain, Helena Cook and Phyllis Rivard, gave its second annual performance of French plays.

THE PESSIMIST ' S DEPARTMENT Never vet did I hie me to the Fenway Theatre to revel in the handsome features of Rudy Valentino that a corpulent female of advancing years did not seat herself beside me and devote herself to communing with Mr. Wright ' s noisesome product. Once in a D. T. scene I knew my lines, and Trippy wasn ' t there. My vacations usually coincide with Harvard and Tech exams. On mornings I have earlv classes, the mail man never appears until 1 have left. Late-class days he shows up promptly at eight. Whenever an orchestra plays my favorite symphony, some one always feels called upon to assist b wav of humming or whistling; invariably off key. When I was a Sophomore, Dean called the roll every time I cut Rhetoric. If I eat an onion-flavored salad, some man invariably drops in unexpectedly to see me. f. very time 1 cut chapel. I miss something snappy. Note hooks are always called at tin most inconvenient lime for me. ££ He: “What do you study at Emerson? She: “Rhetoric, Vocal Tech, Evolution-- He: “Evolution!

The rest of the cast will love you for this. However if you are sure that no one’s key fits your make-up box, bring the box. leaving the key at home. Borrow a stick of grease paint, any color. Step on the hand of your neighbor who is sitting on the floor trying to put on a pair of shoes. Now you are ready to begin. Let your conscience, if any, be your guide. After a few smudges have landed hither and yon over your wide open countenance, some one will yell, ‘‘Cast on stage.” If you are taking the part of a woman, don’t stop to beautify yourself: the audience might think you have made an effort to look nice if you appear pretty. Even if you are taking the part of the ingenue, don’t worry about looks. It will give you an opportunity to demonstrate the value of the power of mind over matter. If you are taking the part of a man, fall downstairs on your face. This will give you a hard look. Moustaches are absolutely necessary. If no crepe hair is at hand, a wisp of broom straw or a few strands from a dustless mop will give a coy appear- ance on the upper lip. After the performance hang around and converse gushingly with a friend until the rest of the members of the cast have dispersed taking with them their cold cream and other cleansing agents. Discover that you have nothing with which to remove your make-up. Tear your hair. ou can swear, too. if you like. Then jam your hat down over your face and depart tor home and tub. Fill the tub, if possible. Get in; submerge. Don’t bother to come up. UNREQUITED LOVE ( Modern) I really ought to grieve for you I feel that it ' s my duty.

It is 12:30 i M. There ' s nothin " in the room hut several hundred folding camp chairs, a desk, a blackboard, a piano, a senior, and a sandwich. There is a grey film of dust over everything, including the senior and the sandwich. The senior chews the sandwich and mutters imprecations under her breath. The hands of the clock move round. Minutes pass; nothing is heard hut the mastication ol the senior; the whirring of the clock ' s hands; the dust silenth accumulates over all. Finally the Senior looks up to mutter — " I am a woman of blood and iron but I cannot stand this much longer. When they come ah. when they come. G ' r’rrr! ! his speech indicates that the senior is the captain of a scene, and that she has called a meeting for 12:30. In short, this is a rehearsuL mark the word. Filter another senior yvith her hat over her eve. At sight of her the Captain utters a strangled cry and dashes at her. The newcomer breaks ayvay exclaiming: Stop! I m sorry but I have to get my lunch. What made you call a rehearsal at this time anvway ? I have to go. I m sorry . " Exit newcomer. Choking sobs from Captain. Also mumbled acrimony . The clock whirrs, the dust drifts. The Captain sneezes. Enter tyvo other Seniors. They are met by a lusilade of folding camp chairs flung at their heads. The Captain shrieks. " I am a hand of iron in a velvet glove but I m at the end of my patience. This rehearsal yvas called for 12:30. In short -off comes the velvet, first newcomer. " We had another meeting.’ Second newcomer. " I forgot all about it until a minute ago. " Roth newcomers. " Why did you have it at 12:30?

She speaks: " Why in the name of sense did you call this rehearsal now? For the love of Mike. I have lo go. I can t wait. I don’t knoyy my lines, anyway. I’m hungry. " She subsides lo a chair muttering. The clock ticks, die captain yvalks violently over to die piano up left and chews a piano leg to give vent to her emotion. Enter another Senior. She sets foot inside the door sill and --peaks. I m hungry. I don’t knoyv my cue. What time is it? It’s almost time for ' lass. I ve lost my play book. I he Captain starts unsteadily for her. when all four actors cry simultaneously: " Why did you call rehearsal at this time?” I am a woman of blood and sand, begins the Captain but breaks off yvith a gasping sob. Three minutes til class time! Start rehearsing quickly .” I lie four actors walk around in circles shouting conf usedly : " W hat s my cue?’’ " hi ■res my book?” • I, at s mv exit?” " When do you enter?” " I m hungry?’’ " W hat s y our cue?” T II E E M E R S O M A N A Sophomore thrusts her head in at the door and bleats plaintively : “We’re supposed to have this room for a Pantomime practice now. Youd better leave. " Three Seniors heave three chairs at the offending Sophomore and then dump die body over the stair rail. They return to the grim captain and all shout in ihiison : “ Why did you call this rehearsal for 12:30?” The Captain opens her mouth to speak. The bell rings: the Seniors rush out all crying: “My class — I must hurry! — I can ' t stay!” The Senior drops to the floor lifeless. The Sophomore pantomime group swarms in. disposes of corpse. 1 he shade of Ur.
