I hree of the class geniuses set to work and as quick as magic, there were I ' liree masterpieces fresh from the press aching to be acted h the class mimes. ' I ' he songs this time were set to operatic airs as befitted our Superior State. Surel no class e er had a more delightfulK egotistical " w e-didn ' t-mean-to-he-stuck-up " year.

Junior eek opened w ith a song da that bespake the talent of the two who com- posed and coached the songs. I ' hanks to them the were well directed and well sung. Stunt da came w ithout an member taking the life of the Junior w ho donned his most familiar garb and chanted his fa orite teaching phrases. Prom night rolled around.

Tlie Fall was marked h the Senior fashion sho . which if not a financial, was a supreme satisfaction to the irls wlio modeled the fjowns and those of us who were fortunate enough to see the display of feminine apparel. Then came the Senior Ke ival Pla , “The Honourable Histoire of Friar Hacon and Friar Hunga ’.’’ We ill always be proud of the w a in whicli it was recei ed. d ' he request to have it repeated came as the supreme compliment for it is the first time the Revival Pla ' has ever been repeated. With the donning of our caps and gowns during Junior Week we ha e come to the realization that our days at Emerson are numbered. We are marking the hours — and the memories — and associations with which the ' are filled will be carried on after we sign the final page of our Class Histort . A breakfast party is one of the memories and Sneak day will mark atiother — the Jutiiors willing!

" ■12 1928 Rmerso i ia i 1928 Junior Class J istorp The Class of ' 28 makes its final b(j v to Emerson College by the submission of this ear Hook. ' Ehis last and nohle y;esture concludes three years of acti ities of one kind and another. ' Ehe class, having reached that calm that comes after the storm of Junior cr eek, prom, etc., now can settle back peacefullv and review the achievements of their three eventful vears at our nohle institution. ( )ne characteristic seems to mark all their endeavors, a boldness, even to rashness in their attempts. As b reshman the class had the consummate ner e to present a plav instead of the customary stunt. I his rash act came to a happv ending chiefly because the pla ' was coached by our good friend and sponsor. .Mart Winn. ' Ehe class was steered by the firm hand of our President, " irginia Jerguson, who showed her execi ' tive abilitv by being happih ' mar- ried in her Sophomore tear. .As Sophomores thev renewed their activities by gicing a party to the incoming Ereshmen. This was a ery sophisticated affair with an orchestra, dancing and ice cream cones! d ' his year had its climax in the Pantomime, an extremely modernistic affair called h’ews from the Eiffel " Power. " Ehe general effect was rather the same as viewing a futuristic picture for the first time; one was a bit awestruck and breath- less tr ing to decide what it was all about. I ' he cniip de nuiitre was the picture of Harry Davis as the ostrich, feathers and all, climbing out of the camera. .A sight one does not ha e the opportunity of seeing every dav. ■As Juniors the class arri ed full of spirits and carefree jollitv . Ho e er, the were soon sobered dmvn by the solemn warnings and doleful predictions of the Seniors and Faculty concerning debts and the responsibility involved in a Prom, ' f ear Hook, etc. Hut with their usual rashness the ' undertook their duties, and after much strug- gling they produced Junior week, a song da done in .Mi nstrel Show st le with a handsome barker in Miss .Allyn who it is rumored caused sijme feminine hearts to flvitter by her handsome appearance. " Ehe Junior-Senior Debate produced a learned and heated discussion of the Nicaraguan situation. " Ehe Juniors won as per tradition. " Ehe usual hue and cr - of injustice arose also as by tradition in spite of the importation of an expert judge from Jff)ston University, who gave the reasons for his decision. " Ehe Juniors and Seniors patched up their differences enough to enjoy the Stunt and the Prom the next day. .As the music died awa and the last car left the Hotel where the Prom was held the Junior President heaved a huge sigh of relief and pre- pared to be laid out in lavender. " Ehen came the A ear Hook rush and much hounding people for pictures, and cussing and discussing photographers and printers. Now the season is nearly over, and it only remains to be seen vvhether or not the Juniors can catch the Seniors on Sneak Da ' . " Phis would be entireh’ against all tradition, but we are optimistic and predict at least a merrv chase. " Ehe Juniors are always full of surprises. 43 a ri 1 t ' Thelma- Alah - dc ffoc. 1928 Kmersofiidfi 1928 i isitorp of iljE Class of ’30 The good ship of the Class (jf ' 30 started it’s second ’o age r ith Hohbie Har e at the helm, Kay Sulli an as ship’s Bursar, Catherine Grant as the scrihe of the records and a crew (jf enthusiastic, sea-worth shipmates, A bit of the Freshman- green had been rubbed off lier decks and she set sail with the great dignity befitting her position.

It was unfurled by aspiring souls with hearts beating faster to the tune of earning, a yearning for what is hne in this world. It was raised into the heavens amidst the mountains of brotherh and sisterly lo e, which reverberated with the youthful but ambitious treble of the Freshman. That imleflnite hut most heartfelt spirit of Emerson soon imbued the reticent Freshmen with an indomitable enthusiasm for their work, class, and college. And that is why the Class of 1931 i out to make history for Emerson! The ' ha e elected the following from their group as leaders: Myriam E. Muirhead, Pa., Samuel Pe zner, ice-president, S l ia Dworsky, Secretary ' , Cl de W. Dow, ’Ereasurer. .A constituticjii committee, con- sisting of the class officers and representati es in the student senate, Laura N e, and Esther Heckley, went to work on a constitution for the class. ’Ehe class has been rolling along the pathway of progress and it will end its first ear triumphantly with the Freshman stunt. It is the sincere desire of the Class of 1931 to carry, for the three remaining ears, their banner high in the clouds for dear old Emerson! 51 1928 F.mcrsoniafi 1928 Confession Scorn IS not wise, and sorrow is not w ise, And bitterness is smallest of the three, et these are cloak and shoe and staff to me.

Our first tea dance of the season was held December 3 in honor of our new pledges; an ficcasion of much happi ness for us as for our guests who seemed in the best humor. Just before we enjoyed the vitalization of the Christmas Holidavs, it was our privilege to invite Mrs. Pote, our house mother, to become an honorary member of Phi Iu Gamma. During the month of Eebruary word came to us that the newly elected ice- President of the Grand Council of Phi Mu Gamma was none other than our own .Alpha sister, and former teacher at Emerson, .Mar Winn, now Mrs. Alyron Bullock. J ' his year, the annual scholarship pla ' was given March 12 at the Fine .Arts Theatre, and was written and directed by Mr. Belford Forrest. “The Growing Up of Margot Prescott” is the title, and it is in three episodes. Wholly modern in its theme and treatment, the play caused much comment and was a great success in all ways. Starr .Allin, President. 5y 1928 Kme?

We wish to here e.xpress our gratitude to Phi Mu Gamma, Zeta Phi Eta, and K.ippa Gamma Chi, for the help they have been to us, for the aid they have rendered in facilitating our organization. We have already secured our chapter house for next year. It is located at 188 Bay State Road. It is our greatest hope that we may live up to the standards set for us by the other three sororities. The privilege is certainly a great one, and our endea ors shall be con- centrated in fulfilling the trust which has been placed in is. outfjern Clui) of Cmersoii College ' I ' he little celestial spark of love for the Southland is kept burning deep within the breast of every Southerner, during the brief yet delightful isit in the North, by means of the Southern Club. This is comprised of twenty-fi e members, wbo meet and lunch together once a month, stri ing to make their College and this life happier and finer for their having been in it. “Dixieland” was staged April tbe thirteentb.

Under the leadership of Rebecca Jaye Kaufman, the organization has doubled its member- ship. The society aims to encourage and strengthen Jewish ideals and principles. It meets twice a month ; one afternoon is for social activities, and an interesting speaker, while the other is purely business. A formal was given at the Hotel Somerset, December 3, for the benefit of the Walter Bradley Tripp Memorial Scholarship, founded in 1927, and given each year to a needy student.

We feel that being a member of the h ' ederation of Catholic College Clubs has tended to broaden the interest of the club in so much as it affiliates us with the Catholic Clubs of other colleges. e have had many interesting and inspiring meetings this year and several social events. At the first of the school tear our president met all those in the club and spoke to them of the value and meaning of the club. From the splendid talk we gained cooperation and mant loyal supporters. Later our very interested friend, Professor Joseph E. Connor, gave the club a very inspirational talk and it was hoped that tve might put on a Lenten Drama this tear, but after careful searching the play committee, tvhich consisted of Alice Teed, chairman, tvith able assistants Betty Leonard, Anna Peterson and Leo Carroll, re- ported that suitable material could not be found so this plan tvas abandoned. The members of the club spent a most enjoyable tveek-end beginning October 21. d ' hev attended the Federation Formal Dance on Friday evening at the Repertory Hall. Saturday afternoon a tea was held at the League House on Arlington Street and the girls had the pleasure of meeting Vm. Cardinal ()’Connell, Archbishop of Boston; and on Sundat’ morning a communion breakfast served at the Hotel Lenf)x completed the week-end. ( n the evening of November 10, Miss Isobel Collins opened her home in Waverlet ' to all the members of the club, gi ing a party in the form of an initia- tion and welcome to the new members and tvhicb proved a grand success. In closing the social program for the tear the club is planning a dance to be held late in April to which all the members are looking forward with great enthus- iasm. The club has taken definite steps fonvard this t ear and we hope that next year the girls will endeavor to further the ideals of the club i hich have not been reached as et. in this way making the club a credit to themsehes and the school from both a religious and a social standpoint.

Although the association was not as prominent as in other years, we feel that it will be next ear. No matter what happens, there will always be a spark of Y.

Little did one think when the curtains parted on that day that it was to be the most successful season in the liistory of the tlieatre. Helievinjj; that still greater aims might be obta ned, it as decided that the Chil- dren’s ’Theatre should be organized, and this plan inaugurated: that the Children’s ’Theatre Companv be composed of members of the Sophomore Dramatic Training class, and should be under super ision of Mr. Helford Forrest, and an executive staff, composed of Mr. Helford Forrest, Director; Miss Ethel ’. Hailey, Associate Director: Mr. Daniel (). Hrewster, Art Director; Mr. Robert H. Hiirnham, Director of Make- up; Miss Juliet Phillips, Musical Director; and Miss Catheriii " Siillisan, Husiness Manager. Some delightful plats were presented during the season. On ( fetober 27 the Children ' s Theatre Company irresented “Alice In .Movieland,” a delightful modern fantasy for young folks, written expresslv for the theatre bv .Mr. Helford P ' orrest. In November “Cinderella,” a fairy tale in four scenes b Jielford Forrest, was given. Hoth of these plavs met with such great approval by their audience that the “doings” of Children’s ’Theatre soon spread, and it was then that it was decided that in order to supph the demands for seats, it would be necessary to gi e two irerformances of the plavs to follow. In December, a Christmas pla , “Friar .Angelico,” by Daniel O. Hrewster, as presented in our theatre and later in Framingham, .Mass., when it as given before the Woman ' s Club of that cit . Perhaps one of the most interesting plats of the season tvas “Robin Hood,” by Lura .Monier. ’This play was taken to Milton and presented there. Then in February came the delightful performance (jf “’The J ' hree Hears,” a musical play directed by Ida .May Rosenhain, assisted b Juliett Phillips. ’The wee ones enjoyed this particularly, so much that man of the same faces were seen at the second performance of this play. W ithout doubt, the most beautiful play of the season was that of “The Pied Piper,” written and directed by .Miss Jeanette Dowling. .A set had been made b Mr. .McFadden of the .Art Department, and the atmosphere created by the pla was one not soon to be forgotten. W’ith the “Knave of Hearts” b ILdford Forrest, a perfectly delightful play adapted from the old Mother Goose rhyme, th.e seascjn was brought to a close. ’The reputation of Children’s ’Theatre has been established. ’The movement has gained the recognition of the heads of the dramatic departments (jf main of the larger colleges, who have congratulated us for the fine work done by this theatre. To .Mr. I elford Forrest and to .Miss Ethel Haile ' e owe much, for it has been through their unending help and aid that Children’s ’Theatre has become what it is today. May the season of 1P28-1P2P be e en more successful than 1 727-1 28, and ma those who join the company enjo and receive as much aid as ve of the present companv have enjoved and received from it. C.
