Chaffee Martha Allen Dorothy Burke President ■ I ice-President Secretary and Treasurer " File Student Government Association comprises every student officially enrolled in the college. Because a large body is unwieldly and impractical as an acting organ- ization, there is of necessity a Student Senate — the working unit of the entire Student Government Association. Every member of the college has the right of appeal at any time to the Senate, which is the official channel between the student body and the college administration. The Senate is made up of the officers of the Student Government Association. — the four class presidents, two representatives from each class, and house presidents. 1 hus every phase of student activity is represented and student affairs are regulated through this body. In matters of house concern, there is a Dormitory Council, made up of the Senate plus the respective house matrons. 14 EVELYN A. McCLUNG Z I H Butler, Pennsylvania " Remember lliee?

If the Lord’s got anything bigger to give you, He’ll see to it.” » 37 Mentone ibpll O NCE upon a time there were four boys who were called for the name of their father Peterson, Richardson, Johnson an d M ichelson. The four Sons owned two birds, one a baby Robin who, like themselves, they called Robin-son. The other bird was a Parrot who one day said to Robin-son, “Du Bois Chaf-ee?” Robin-son sighed and said, “You don’t know how I’m Akin! They feed me only Branz and one Bean a day.” So Parrot called his friend Shepard and said, “Mac, take Robin-son and give him a good coat of Whiting, so Du Bois won’t recognize him.” But the Shepard said, “What Fol-ev!!” And seeing his friend the Ranger they Strutton together. Along the Ald-ridge they walked till they came to the Brink-er- “Hoff,” as the local Brooks were called. Here Mac the Shepard saw his girl coming so made haste to Lynch the Ranger. Then Mac hurried after her calling. “Stand- Lee.” She called back coquettishly, “Trust man to say that,” but being a woman, she stopped. He sidled up to her and said, “I’m Willen ’• — ar you?” She looked away and sighed, “W-Ish-er-wood.” Mac rapturously cried, “No Morr-is needed.” Mac Clung. The course of true love never did run smooth for at this moment appeared Peter- son, Richardson, Johnson and Michelson, chasing three black Katz. Lee begged Mac to release her, as round and round them went the Sons and the Katz. Every other time Mac turned to kiss Lee back they came, till he cried in disgust, “What Carr-uthers? Off again, On again, Gone again, Flanagin.” Then cried Lee, “Me Brady my hair, which you, Mac Don-al’ pullie. " With which She-tuck up all her curls, which gave Mac the chance to put over this Frank- lin-e, “Why Lee, you most Devine of creatures!” E’er long he made a picnic fire for her. Then they had a feast of “Mulligan,” the stew which made Campbell famous. As they were eating, they saw’ approaching thru the Forest, the Porter, Young Edward Hirsch, who was Mac’s rival. Angerly Mac uprose and gave Lee a resounding smack. The infuriated Ed Hirsch rushed on Mac, crying ,“Of nerve, you have got vun D lott! Inow’ gif you some El-vidge you neffer vill forget.” “Zee-man,” cried Lee, “Bur-ke up, Mac. Me for you. ' ' With which encouragement Mac rushed at Ed. A terrible combat ensued in which Ed fell back into the midst of the blazing em- bers, and they had a hard time to get the Fire-off-Ed. The Sons, their Katz, and their Parrott came running at the sound of the great commotion. At once the Par- 38 rot got into the fight but almost immediately, Ed cried, “Vait! Dod-Gast it! She’s broken ‘Er-ving.” So he called for Jones, the Black-Smith, to come and repair it. This angered the four Sons, so Peterson, Richardson, Johnson and Michelson were All-in the fight before one could sneeze. Finally Mac remembered that Ed Hirsch had a Boyle on his neck from eating over-Dun-ham. He decided to see How-’ard he he could injure it. He knew that his two-bladed knife, “Calder” wood make a wound that couldn’t be Heald. So he thru it with all his might. Thus of Ed Hirsch it was said that he had Gon-dek-hand on a boat sailing over the river Jordan straight to the Styx. The fight ended, as Mac cried gladly, “Now, I’m a Fried-man.” Lee felt she must get for MacLull-an’ rest, so she told him, “In the West, more land, more free air is. I have Cousins there and also my friend Anne. Let’s go West.” Mac, how- ever, would not be persuaded. Thus ran the dialogue: Lee (pleadingly) Mac! Mac (disgustedly) Fad! Lee (determinedly) “See-An.” So Lee hastened to Kram-er possessions into their covered wagon, in which she placed Mac and the Parrot with the broken pinion, and tied her Gord-on behind. But when she tried to crank the covered wagon, she found car-Bon-hard caked on each spark plug. This she removed with Rogers Dutch Cleanser. Immediately the lizzie started, and Lee set off in the direction of Gold-Berg, while the Gas Flung High. Thus Lee became the Shepard’s Shepard. If you can write a bigger one than this, you are a Good-’en. 39 Ct)c Senior Lctutial -pap MESSENGER God Dethe Everyman F BLOWS HYP Cousin Kyndrede Goodes Good Dides Knowledge Confess yon Beaute Strength e Dyscrecyon Five Wyttes Aungell Aungells Doctor EVERYMAN Dramatis Personae MADELINE A.

O 47 Junior Class history ii RESHMEN we came, timid and tame.” But then, we must all be Freshmen, and since the timidity and tameness always seem to accompany ones premiere appearance at college, we’ll not profess to be any different from any one else. However, with the upper classes setting a high example for us to follow and attempt to rise over and above, we soon realized that we must put our noses to the grindstone, too, and show what we could do. Thus our class was organized, our committee for the stunt was chosen, and our stunt was put on for the approval of our superiors. It was a clever stunt (ask any member of any of the upper classes and they ' ll say so, too,) and our songs were everything that songs should be. Then came our Sophomore year, and again we were called upon to give proof of what we could do. According to an old Emerson custom we showed our skill in pantomime, three pantomimes, to be exact, original and entertaining. And our repu- tation was further established. Now we are Juniors and in a year which holds both joy and sorrow, joy be- cause of many joys of Junior week, sadness because our farewells are directed toward the Seniors, and next year we too must say farewell. Fhe Junior week of the class of 1928 started with a bang. We enjoyed our own song day and, conceitedly, think everyone else did, too, and we offer many a heartfelt cheer to Pinky and Juliet. Then came our stunt, a travesty on the faculty, arranged and compiled by Thelma Boltin and Esther Bookheim. On Thursday we listened breathles sly to the Junior-Senior debate, and a glorious debate it was, more glorious because the Juniors won, thus saving the Junior class a trip to the back alley with Mr. Co nnor. Friday night came our Prom, which needs no comment because of the memories it will bring to the hearts and minds of each and everyone of us. We closed our Junior week with a play written by one of our Junior playwrights, Mabel Gillman, and ably acted out by Dorothy Atwill, Mathilda Robertshaw and Gene Poole. The three years have been all too short, and we realize that our Senior year will seem shorter, but we are quite sure that it will hold just as much happiness for all of us, and will draw the ties of the friendships we have made even closer. Astrid Suxdelof 5DFHQMDRE5 President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Class (ZDfftctrs H. Marzette Gardner Madeline Miller Mae Brown Leo Carroll j% apf)omorcs onaUt E ARLY in the year the Sophomores showed that they were wide awake, and right away began “to go places, see people, and do things.” As would bespeak Sopho- more dignity and understanding, they gave a party for the “little tots” who had just made their appearance in Emerson. Because of their age, figuratively speaking, and their seeming inferiority, suitable refreshments consisting of animal crackers, lolly pops and ice cream cones were allowed them. They all wore extremely becoming hats of many shapes, sizes and colors. All this happened on October 23rd, 1926 and was successful both in getting the freshmen generally acquainted with the members of their own class and with their superiors, the Sophomores. This year the Sophomores took advantage of numerous requests made for Christ- mas cards bearing the Emerson College seal. The result was that a plain, orthodox card bearing the desired seal, went on sale the latter part of November. Everyone was generally pleased, and many have suggested that it become a permanent institution. But now comes what made the Sophomores famous: “The Sophomore Panto- mime!” Everyone has heard of it! (We hope no one will want to take that in more than one way.) Most assuredly it was a novel presentation for Emerson College; such a thing as a “Wedding Breakfast on the Eiffel Tower” seldom makes its ap- pearance here. Because of the super-abundance of talent in the class, there was neces- sarily a large cast, twenty-five in number, ranging in character from an ostrich to a baby, to say nothing of the startling apparition of the lion. The farce was successful in accomplishing what it set out to do, namely, to keep the house in an uproar. It hardly seems that the audience could have enjoyed it any more than the cast did in presenting it. Since the Sophomores were so prominent in the public eye in the early and middle part of the year, they are willing now to relinquish the limelight to the Juniors and Seniors, who show promising signs of a big season. H. M. G. 51 diougljt Have you ever seen the dawn come up Peeping o’er some tree filled hill side And thought of the mystery in it all That is covering this world wide? Have you tho’t of how the flowers bloom With their colors all in fine array And the blue tinted sky — and the moon — I’ve tho’t of them at night — and at day. There must be a God who guides our way Who gives us these beautiful charms, I know there is, for I saw today His greatest work, a wee babe in arms. The red of the Robin on his cheek And the blue of the sky in his eye, Yet that little body is oh so weak That the least little thing makes him cry. But I can see in that throbbing breast The glory of God’s work on high Why the trees forever bloom — and then rest Always changing — yet never die Ralph L. Shattuck. 52 RESInMEN ®fje history of ttje Class of 1930 I N the fall of the year 1926, Emerson College of Oratory in “Ye Dere Olde Bean- towne” became suddenly aware that something had landed in its midst, and that if it couldn’t gain recognition any other way, it could at least make a lot of noise. Can you guess? Right the first time. This “something” was the class of 1930. At our first chapel we listened meekly ( ?) while the upper-classmen sang “Fresh- men we came, timid and tame,” and wondered if they referred to us. If we were in that condition, we at least believed in the old adage, “Safety in numbers.” At least, we followed the traditions of the college by running around with a lost-dog expres- sion on our poor innocent young faces, blushing with embarrassment whenever an upper classman deigned to cast a scornful glance in our direction. There are Life-savers labeled wintergreen, peppermint, etc. We found a new brand and labelled it “Sophomores.” They surely did save our lives with a party down in the hall one afternoon. After that, we considered ourselves quite an im- portant part of the institution (I trust we weren’t alone in that happy thought.) The rest of the year passed quite uneventfully for us, and when we left in May, with all our acquired “poise” and knowledge, we fully realized how sincerely the upper- classmen had been when they sang that song in our first chapel — “learning to love and honor thy name.” Eleanor Harvey, ’30. 55 l£ ong of a bailor The wind is blowing free today, The ocean’s blue and wide ; For foreign ports we’re off today, At highest point o’ tide. The morning mists have fled away, There’s sunlight on the sand ; And now adown the bay we slip ; Again we’re free from land. The blue sea rolls beneath us now, A gull screams through the air; Last point of land fades fast away, Our voyage has started fair. We carry the life of a hungry world, Of a merry world as well, Of a world that cries and a world that laughs, That lives to buy and sell. Bright jewels we bring for men to buy, To place in women’s hair, At the cost of life and soul mayhap, That other men may stare. Rich silks are stored within the hold, For a princess’ wedding gown, That her state may smile though her heart be sad, For love without renown. Colors we find for the artist’s brush, That will catch the flush of dawn, Or the rippled silver of a lake, And the peace of a country lawn. We sail ‘neath the stars on a southern sea, Where the water’s smooth and black ; And the breeze is like a woman’s kiss, And there’s moonlight in our track. The days are like soft golden notes, With flowers bright and rare, And swaying trees like dancing girls, And spices in the air. But soon we sail for other lands, Where life is at its height, Where cities work throughout the day And play throughout the night. The glitter of ten million lights Youth’s careless laugh and gay; These make bright through all the night The city’s shining way. And now for the north we set our sail. For the land of the midnight sun, Where the world is blue and white and gray, And the work of men is done. We’ve run the world, we’re laden now, From ports both far and near; And homeward now we turn the bow, For we’ve been gone a year. We long to be on land again, From duty to be free; But soon our hearts will sing again The song of the rolling sea. God make me what I think I am Save me from that sin called sham — Help me to walk along Thy way Flinging Thy banner high each day, — And at night may I be content For having consolation lent To some poor soul who spurns the light, Whom with my aid is led aright. Keep me from shirking any task That any child of Yours may ask, — Make me love creation, and then — Just one of this world’s striving men. M. G Ralph L. Shattuck 59 ®tmlicjl)t pnpljonp A LL day long he is a man, hut at twilight, when alone on his balcony overlooking the quiet lake blended in vivid sunset colors, — he is a spirit. Tall, slender, with hlack hair setting off a white, poet-like face, he gazes with soft eyes into the ever deep- ening dusk before him. With wine velvet hangings behind him and the balcony rail covered with sleepy, white roses before him, he seems a picture barred from the common world. He moves — slowly up and down, quietly pacing, as if trying to bring some hidden thought to surface, and suddenly, as though granted his wish, he pauses before the ever awaiting cello. Resting on the balcony rail he strums the strings as if coaxing them to awake, and tightens the bow. With head thrown back and eyes alight, he waits a moment, — and then with a full, resounding chord he puts into play the bow . If life could be like this — always! Quickly his thin fingers run up and down the strings — faster his bow 1 It seems each fern and flower dances to the bright and happy tune. But Life cannot be always a dance — he knows — and so with head lowered and eyes softer, he plays a melody of love, fairly enhanced with exquisite beauty, — while the sun sinks ever lower. With head resting on that of the instrument, eyes closed and lips formed into a half-wistful smile, he makes a lullaby, sweet, soft, tender, and as the last ray of sun dies away, he awakens the night-lamps, the stars, and softly croons the last rose and bird to sleep .

If I might look into your eyes — deep, with no thought of masking, Straight to the dear, true heart of you, Knowing the joy of you, and the hurt, If I might look into your eyes — deep, with no thought of masking — I would feel the grey surge of the ocean, leaping with foam and with spray I would feel the still peace of the ocean, vibrant, at end of day, I would feel the wind in our faces, the steady pull at the sheet, I would see a dim sail in the sunset — know the glow of your soul, complete. 1 think perhaps we’d like the same things, you and I, If you might look at me without my masking; The pull of my heart, dear — someday will it open ? I think perhaps we’d like the same things, you and I. Madeline A. Chaffee. ©it jioatiS I like a boat. Do you? A boat of sturdy timbers A weather-beaten boat Bearing the marks of tempests Swept clean with wind and sea. I like a boat — A boat tied to a landing With sail neatly furled With rudder a-wash A boat settled down to her mooring. I like a mooring A white bob on the face of the harbor A harbor dotted with white bobs A bow will nose in closely A boat will settle for sleep. I like a boat Wi th sails full Rushing the seas and the sky Flaunting the flag of the vagabond — I like a boat. Do you ? Madeline A.

A lover, I, aye humble too; For you are beauty, wondrous rare, And I, a humble being, who Can only give you mortal ' s care. Oh, sweet, sweet, violet, blue, Would I were a violet too, And grew beside you in your hue, And bloomed your lover; ever true! 1 bought an apple tree beside a brook. Three stones were there that made a cooling nook; And there I sat in peace with full content, With millions gained, a paltry hundred spent. I smiled to think how far 1 was from heat, How happy there on my three cornered seat, And laughed, because I’d always thought That happiness could not be bought. Starr Allyn 62 introspection Perhaps in deep disguise He’ll come ; Down the broad highway, Down a blatant city street, Or a dusty village path, If he comes. With a breezy, lilting swing, An arrogant, fearless stare, Or a quiet salutation, And a shy, friendly smile, When he comes. At dawn, noon, or evening, In mist, rain or sun, He’ll come. He’ll laugh, he’ll tease, he’ll banter So inimitably, When he comes. With mockery, he will question, He’ll ask, he’ll plead, implore; Then he’ll swear In deep despair, When he comes. He’ll love, loving love, Paying court with warm, wild fervor. When he comes. Down the broad highway, Down a blatant city street Or a dusty village path (If he comes.) With a breezy, lilting song, That I’ve wanted, oh, so long! He will sing it, My love song, When he comes. Thelma Ann Boltin. paradox The wailing cry of a violin seems to tear my heart in two And yet I needs must listen till the last sad note is thru; The deep full notes of an organ throb in my swimming head, But I must listen and hearken till its faintest echo is dead ; The thunder of surf on a rocky shore has a weird spell all its own, I try to escape, but it draws me down close to the sea and its moan ; I’ve even felt a throb of pain at a waxen lily afloat, And the rarest sunset that paints the sky brings a smothered sob to my throat. I he richest gifts of God to man are those that give him pain, I he things he prizes highest their leavening touch retain. Do you think that you can hurt me? Heart o’ mine, you only prove I he richest gfit of God to man — tho’ it hurt him shall be love Martha Allen. 63 JfireSibe pictures Sept., 1937 As 1 sit and gaze in the open grate At the burning embers remaining, Slowly their flame seems to merge into ne Dull glow — and a pageant passes before me. First come young girls, light of heart, With a youth here and there among them Bearing a banner, green as the Spring, Symbol of Youth overflaming. Only once they stop on their way For a frolic, or stunt as they call it And are gone again, quickly forever. A second group now is before me Plunging steadily onward As if sure of the path they will follow — Jubilant thev, and they show it By a M instrel and Hodge-Podge of humor. And et they are serious, too, in their journey And turn to Expression in Pantomime. But see — the Pageant is moving And they too have vanished in darkness. And now there appear the Juniors, Hard working, careworn, and weary. No time have they for a frolic One week only for Playtime, And that as much work as frolic. Eagerly seek they the finish The “end of all their endeavor” And so they are gone on their pilgrimage. m 64 A last group, smaller, yet stronger Worried, uncertain, yet steadfast. Facing the future with spirit untamed. Feeling the joy of the journey and sorry it is to be ended. Again a Minstrel and Hodge-Podge and Then Everyman, a Revival. Now, on their way, they are wait ' ng And thinking of days still before them — Few in number, yet full — Crowned by the rites of Commencement. The pageant is passed, and before me, Is merely the grate with the embers. The embers are grey now and lifeless With only a glow here and there Tremulous, faint, just a M emory. M. A.

And then one day, 1 chanced on a lay, In a book of old poems and carols gay ; — I came on the careless lilt of a song, — -Phrased of words that just seemed to belong, Which cleverly told what I wanted to know — An atheist here of “art” also; And yet — I was hurt — 1 shouldn’t have been — Yet I hated to think he’d seen what I’d seen — If you know what 1 mean. n. i). EI)f Catneo In an ancient city long ago W as etched a face on cameo A face whose loveliness to see Made man’s heart leap in ecstacy. But now that cameo is gone There is a memory lives on Ne’er has there been one quite so fair Since that beauty imprisoned there. And yet I think 1 saw today A face as fair with laughter ga; Blue eyes with such a happy glow They put to shame that cameo. Ralph L.

P HI Mu Gamma’s first affair in its new home was a small tea dance to test the proportions of the house. As usual we presented our scholarship play on March 4. This year, under the direction of Mr. Belford Forrest, the play was, “Not So Long Ago,” hy Arthur Rich- man. It was well received and has been heralded as most successful. As this marks the twenty-fifth scholarship which Phi Mu Gamma has given the college through the annual play, it is truly an anniversary year. At the close of our year we should like to give just a thought to Walter Bradley Tripp. Although he is not here with us in body, we feel that his spirit has been with us through the years, and will be ever near. 77 i£ tgiiia 3 ljo ©elta Founded October 11, 1926 Alpha — Emerson College of Oratory, Colors — White and Gold.

T HE girls of Alpha Chapter opened the doors of their new home to the faculty and students on the occasion of their annual Colonial Tea on November 14th. The curtains were parted on the well established Zeta Toy Theatre on Novem- ber 22nd and 23rd tin’s year in the rose and white theatre at the Chapter House. The plays presented were “My Lady’s I . ace” by Edward Knobleck and “When the Whirl- wind Blows” by Essex Dane. Both plays were acted and coached by Zeta Phi Eta members with the kind assistance of Mr. Connor and Mr. F orrest. The last of Zeta’s activities for this year was the “Zeta Carnival,” the proceeds of which went to the En- dowment Fund.

We feel that the Commuters Club is laying the foundation for one of the largest and finest organiza- tions at Emerson College. Preparations are now in progress for the Production of the play “The Man in the Bowler Hat.” The cast is as follows: John Mary H ero Heroine Chief Villain Bad Man- Man Leonard Joll Betty White Martha Goldberg “Pat” Boyle Mabel Gillman Alice Teed Edward Moss 82 Jflenoratj s©oneti T HE Menorah Society of Emerson College aims to promulgate the study and ad- vancement of Jewish culture and ideals. Toward this end it provides speakers at its meetings who can direct the girls in their study of Jewish Literature and the current Jewish problems. To further inter-collegiate activities the Menorah Society joined with the Meno- rah Societies of Boston University and M assachusetts Institute of Technology to form the Intercollegiate Menorah Society of Greater Boston. The social aims of the society are taken care of by bridges and dances. This year the Menorah Society has established the Walter Bradley Tripp Me- morial Scholarship, which is to be given to some worthy student.

Mildred Jones, our new president, did not return to school in the fall. Dorothy Atwill, our vice-president, stepped in and took her place. It was not an easy task and we owe a great deal to Miss Atwill for “carrying on” as she did. Two hikes were planned by Carolyn Standley in the fall, for the purpose of get- ting the new girls acquainted and incidentally to have a “wee bit of fun.

Willennar 99 ®tje ©ebatc T HE Debate Department at E. C. O., headed by Joseph Edward Connor, has done some very fine work this year. On March 7, the Emerson College Debating team, consisting of Jess Larson, Chickaska, Oklahoma; Dorothy Burke, Heightstown, N. J., and Norma Gooden, Des Moines, Iowa, met the Boston University team, consisting of Lois Mandell, Worcester, Mass., Irvin M. Davis, Pittsburg, Pa., and Beatrice M. Hancock, Bowenville, Mass. The question was as follows : Resolved- — That the time has come to grant the Philippines independence. The annual Junior-Senior Debate was held in Junior week this year. I he Judge gave the decision to the Juniors, but we feel inclined to say that notable work was done by both sides. The Debate Council is composed of four Seniors and four Juniors — Dorothy V. Burke, Chairman. Martha Allen, Madeline Chaffee and Esther Flanagan, Seniors; Alice Teed, Russell Harris, Dorothy Atwill and Agnes McPhillips, Juniors Bean’s JSirtljbap T HERE is one day in every Spring that Emersonians never forget. Can you guess? It is Dean’s Birthday. As this goes to press the entire student body is diligently probing to find out what lies nearest to Dean’s wish this year. Of course, there is this consolation that, if all other ideas fade, the book question is always a favorable one as far as Dean is concerned. We Emersonians believe we have the Champion “book worm’’ of the universe and what is more we are willing to challenge any one. Dear Dean, whatever the gift this year, we know it will be welcome and will help to keep us in your heart forever. I (J 1 “NOT SO LONG AGO” Author ...... Arthur Richman Director .....

OUR PROFESSOR As seen by “Himself — Much overworked and underpaid, intellectual giant who is greatly retarded in his researches by the necessity of delivering lectures several times during the week to a roomful of sleeping, moronic half-wits. As seen by the “Students — An octopus, ever ready to reach out and grab the student who cuts his classes or is behind in the work. As seen by “Us:“ — An eccentric oddity whose one redeeming virtue is absent- mindedness. As seen by the “Wife:’’ — Very childish and completely irresponsible. Doesn’t get on very well in social swim because as he says, he feels cramped by the Materialism and hustle and bustle of this sordid world. M rs. Cobra: How do you like Mrs. Constrictor? M rs.
