Jforrtuorb If in the years to come this hook serves to call to the minds of those who go out , the scenes and events , the hopes and fears, the duties and pleasures that have become inspeparably interwoven into the fabric of our student life, and if, to quote Montaigne, it may be said, " You have only made here a collection of other people’s flowers, having provided nothing of your own but the cord to bind them together " — it will have served its purpose.

They were greeted by their Senior sisters and soon they were organized into the Freshman Class of Emerson College. We were a very happy bunch of people and the result was that our happiness bubbled over into the Freshman Stunt, a three act play called “Sunshine.” Incidently it was the first time a play had ever been put on by the Freshman Class. The Sunshine and happiness of that year jumped right over into the next year so that we entertained the new Freshies right royally. Then one morning we invited the whole school to a most extraordinary thing, namely, “A Wedding Breakfast in Eifel Tower.” What a place to have a wedding breakfast and yet as a Sophomore Stunt it was quite “the thing.” Thus we had filled quite eventfullv two pages of our glorious history. One bright day we awoke to find ourselves Juniors in college. So we came dancing back and cheerfully faced the joys and sorrows that ebbed and flowed throughout the year. Of course we claim that our Junior Week was the best ever. It opened with the traditional Song Day, followed by a very successful stunt, “Alice in Faculty-land.” The week closed with the Prom and everyone said it was the best. Ahem! Then one day arrived that is never to be forgotten. It was the day we arrived back for our last year at old E. C. O. How quickly those three years had flown, and how we wished this one would creep ever so slowly, but lo! It too has flown and we are about to end the happiest days of our lives, the hours spent with our dear teachers and friends, but still we can look back upon an eventful year. First there was the Revival Play, “A Woman Killed With Kindness.” Though it was a very difficult play to produce, we are very happy to say it was a fine success. During Junior Week the usual battle in debate took place between the Juniors and Seniors and for the first time, since the idea was instigated by Mr. Connor eight years ago, the Seniors won ! Thanks to the Juniors, Sneak Day was enjoyed by all the Seniors especially since it followed the holiday. It now gives us great pleasure to announce that the Class of Twenty-nine are the founders of the Emerson College Insurance Endowment Fund. Through this fund the hopes and aspirations of Emerson will be fulfilled . Whereupon we discover that our days are numbered and that soon the last page of our history will have been turned, but we hope that when others look upon them in the years to come they will rejoice that such a Class passed through the portals of Emerson College. 35 Cmersion College In Boston town, of great renown, a famous college stands; To those behind it’s portals ’tis the fairest of all lands; Each year it sends some teachers out to carry on it’s work, And those who know this college best know that ’twill never shirk. It’s pupils come from every corner in the U. S. A. And write to all their friends hack home that they are here to stay; And those who come from foreign lands all say the self-same thing, And shout their praises till they make the old assembly ring. To me it seems like wonder-land and can’t be praised too high; Some day we hope it’s spire will reach clear up into the sky, So that it’s golden dome will shine far out across the sea, And mayhap bring some students here from dear old gay Paree! In ’30 we will celebrate our Golden Jubilee, And know our faithful graduates will come by land and sea, To help us make that day of days a wonder to behold To verify the statement that the Emerson heart’s of gold. 36 Eva S.

The first semester was spent mostly in preparing ourselves for the big activities during the second. And did we have ac- tivities? — Whoopee!! meaning Zounds! Egad! or what have you. — Of course, the minute we returned everyone was aware of the Juniors, but the first thing in which we shone was Junior Recitals, and we think we did pretty well there. Then came Junior week and what a week! We tried to make it the best Junior week ever, and we hope everyone liked the Stunt, and Song Day, the Debate and Prom. Every Junior who had anything to do with it worked to make it a success, and loved it! Right after Junior Week we started work on the Year Book and will any of us ever forget Kay selling subscriptions and Lou, Helen, and Kay selling tickets for the dance. That’s one new thing the Juniors did this year, the Year Book Dance, and we hope that the other classes will want to make it a precedent at Emerson. As this goes to the staff fifteen Juniors have already pledged themselves for endowment policies. We, the Juniors, love Emerson and have enjoyed this and our first two years and are looking forward to next year and its activities. 44 opijomore Class With vim, vigor, vitality and much whoopie we wide awake and wise Sophomores opened the doors of dear old Huntington Chambers Hall to a social for the new green Freshmen. Entertainment, food, music, hops, and laughter made the afternoon more than just fun. Thus we started off our year with a real boom!! It was indeed a great loss to the class to have to lose our splendid leader, President Sylvia Dworskv who was forced to leave because of the death of her father. How- ever spured onward by her influence Vice-President Louise Maguire took over the ruins and is now steering the class onward with great success. The planning of the best Sophomore pantomime ever is now under way and will no doubt be something “just a little different,” our slogan — We also have another mrprise in store for you in the form of a Sophomore dance which will probably take place the latter part of April. If w r e can have such a successful Sohpomore year, just think what’ll happen when we’re Seniors, ’cause the class of ’31 just can’t be beat. Esther Beckley, Secretary . 46 Jftfsfjman Class October with its variegated colors and its anticipation of cold, drab winter brought to Emerson a breath of Spring, a touch of fresh youthful green in the advent of the Freshman class. Guilelessly we attempted to conform with or even to surpass records formed by those who had previously acted as constituents of the lowest animal life at this great institution of learning. Incited by “Jo” Connor’s admiration which was made apparent by his statement to the effect that we were the best freshmen he had taught since the war, we daily strove to make the Colossal period a mere memory. Our chagrin was over-whelming when we were informed by the exalted upper classmen that Mr. Connor had declared the same opinion concerning every “frosh” class since 1918. Quaking with the customary fear, awe, and desire to please Mr. Kenney, we elled “whoa” with the proverbial fervor and perseverance attributed to those in our menial position. With what pride and elation we cherished the slightest en- couragement. “You’ll come along, little girl! You’ll come along!” At length we organized into an authorized class and elected “Andy” Mundy to iead us with “Gertie” Williams assisting as vice-president; “Fely” Strickland as treasurer; and “Mr.” Gardner Handy as secretary. Definitely established, we co- operated in order to produce an entertainment which would satisfy the faculty and other members of the school, and which would also prove worthy of our skill. To Esther Nighbert is given the credit of the authorship of the musical comedy, “A Scottish Tale” which was accepted with a great deal of applause. Eager to uphold the reputation which our predecessors have gained for us, we continue diligently to plod along, hoping that when we receive our hard-earned diplomas “Jo” Connor may sincerely say, “Here was a class!

A continuous stream of traffic. Rumbles over and back ; Nothing of joyous spirit does this Old bridge seem to lack. But at dusk when the shadows lengthen, And the people have all gone home, The bridge stretches over the waters deep — Serene and calm — alone. The lamps that span it’s arch so wide, Dull the whole day long, Now burst into radiant light, That trembles as if in song. — B. J. H.

The little drops of rain just patter all night long, And play upon the roofs and trees Their merry, joyous song; But in the heart of one who listens All the long night through, The song is not so joyful — ’Cause the heart is very blue. The heart is missing someone Who is dearest of the dear, And the song, however joyful Cannot bring him near.

Snterlube Away from the life and lights of town I turn to cross the twilit common, The old wide spreading common : It is as if I walked out of the world Into a great gray quiet. All is a soft dim gray ness Etched about with still old trees. Willows over the hushed gray pond, Bent oaks, gracious dignity of English Elms Waiting, patient, in the soft dim grayness, The dear dim grayness. Even the lights on the little bridge ahead Are strangely dim, pale golden globes In grayness faintly luminous. Above, the gray clouds merge and vaguely pass Over the waiting trees, over the ashen pond ; These pass, and I, now as I reach the gate Pausing a moment more here in this pensive place, until Out of a great gray quiet I walk — Into the noise of town. 54 $oc tEempore M y soul is barren of a song, Gray rains fall in my heart, A dull ache ieats for need of that Wherein 1 have no part — W orship of every lonely thing Within me now is dearth, And lost the old responsive stir For miracles of earth. Yet may these autumn fires alight Flame o ' er my spirit’s cold And wake the leaping ecstasy That has been mine of old ; Scarlet, and crimson, leafless tree, Wonders that were, and are, Renew and lead me back again For I have wandered far. Slone The rain heats down on the pavement ; The street lamps cast their murky light Into the shadowy corners. All over, the Gloomy night is casting it’s blanket of despondency and gloom. Tis past the hour of the hustle And bustle that enlivens the streets all day; Everything is still, save for the occasional rumble of a passing car, — and the M onotonous drip, drip, drip of the rain On the pane of my window. It seems to be telling me a story; A taunting storv, just to make me feel M ore oppressed and down-hearted than before. This life 1 am leading is so dreary and Prosaic; the same old thing day after day; No one to share my troubles, or to allay the Pain of my aching heart. My soul cries forth — - My cries are all in vain — For all the world Is dear to me. 55 Cmersion College iAesibence Approaching its Golden Jubilee, now only a year away, Emerson took what is regarded as its Htst definite step toward an endowed institution “in a home of its own” when the College purchased the Hotel Ericson, a fine six-story apartment hotel at 373 Commonwealth Avenue, directly opposite the Harvard Club. 1 he building is equipped with a large dining room and kitchen, elevator service, a switchboard with room telephone service, electric lighting, bathrooms in both wings on each floor and other modern conveniences. The dining room, on the street floor, is 37 x 40 feet with two spacious alcoves. It will seat 125 persons comfortably. It has a handsome fireplace and leaded glass windows, serving room, pantry and kitchens are adjacent. At the right of the main entrance is a large reception room and at the left an equally spacious parlor. The elevator rises from the street lobby directly opposite the office. Living rooms and bedrooms on the upper floors are large, light and airy, with cheery fireplaces in the living rooms. The new College residence, Emerson Hall was informally dedicated shortly after the opening of the college year when alumni and friends of the College were invited to a housewarming, reception and inspection of the fine student home. Faculty and undergraduates were also guests of the occasion and joined in celebrating the acquisition of the first building in “a still greater Emerson’s home of :1s own.” Hope was many times expressed that 1929-30, Emerson ' s Golden Jubilee year, may bring definite steps toward a new College building to contain classrooms, executive offices, auditorium, theatre, laboratory workshops and other equipment in keeping with the new College residence and in step with Emerson’s growth in student enroll- ment and expansion in curriculum. In the receiving line at the housewarming were: Mrs. Annie T. Monteith, hostess and director of College residences; Miss Beatrice I. Pray, house superintendent; President and Mrs. Southwick, Dean Ross, Miss Lillian Born ; house president, and Miss Marjoire Manning ; president of the Student Government Association. 57 Class of ’29 pledges $14,000 of Endowment Insurance to Help Perpetuate Emerson and Erect New Building History was made for the Emerson College Endownment M ovement when over 75 per- cent of the members of the Senior Class, at a rousing student rally, gave individual pledges to take out $14,000 worth of Endowment insurance to help perpetuate “a still greater Emerson in a home of its own.” Not to be outdone, the under- classmen rose in a body to signify their promise to match the Seniors in this unexampled display of loyalty to Alma Mater. The Junior, Sophomore and Freshman classes aim to quadruple the sum pledged be- fore Commencement — a goal of more than $50,000 for the pres- ent student body this Spring! The members of Phi Alpha Tau, Emerson’s one active fra- ternity, was the first student organization to sign up 100 per cent. The Kappa Gamma Chi Sorority has pledged a $1,000 policy with Miss Lois Teal, registrar of the College, as the insured. Miss Teal herself already had subscribed for a $250 policy. The Menorah Society, one of tile first student organizations to respond, pledged a $250 policy. And so the movement grows. 58 kXV -W l 60 llappa (gamma Clji Founded: 1890 at Ohio Weslyan Established at Emerson College of Oratory 1902 Alpha — Emerson. College of Oratory, Boston, Mass.

Phi Mu Gamma started her social year with an At Home on November 4. December 8 found the chapter house decorated for a tea dance, in honor of our new pledges. The day after the Junior Prom, Phi Mu gave an open tea dance, and needless to say, the sixteenth of February did not find the house empty. 1 his year, our annual scholarship play was “Hay Fever,” by Noel Coward, and we had as our director, Mrs. Christina Davidson, a professional coach of Radcliffe and Harvard. Our second semester pledges were feted at a tea on March 24 at the Brick Oven. The most important event of our year is the National Convention of Phi Mu Gamma, which is to be held in Boston for the first time in several years, May 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Zeta Phi Eta opened her new chapter house at 919 Beacon Street on November 11 with the Annual Colonial Tea. After the Christmas holidays a house dance was given in honor of the pledges. On April the 17th and 18th three one act plays were presented by the Zeta Toy Theatre. These plays were directed by Jeanette Dowling of the Junior Class, with Mr. Forrest acting as advisory director. The plays given were, The High Hill by Jeanette Dowling, The Angel Intrudes by Floyd Dell, and Boccaccio’s Untold Tale by Harry Kemp. Both performances were well attended by the faculty, students and friends. Plans are now underway for the Annual Endowment Zamboree which this year will take the form of a Modernistic Dance. Arline Connery 73 ®o § ou— iflp Jfrienb As 1 wandered along down Life’s merry path, I searched for a friend with whom 1 could laugh ; For a friend who would always be cheerful and gay.

J. H. 74 % Commuters Club After a short interval, the Commuters of Emerson College have again felt the need of organization both for mutual benefit and more efficient service to the school. With the cooperation of Dean Ross, the Commuters Club has been organized, it’s officers elected, room five hundred and sixteen secured as a rest room and meeting place, and committees appointed to carry out the year’s activities. 1 he officers elected at the first meeting held in Jan. 1929 are President, Eva Ramee ; vice-president, Freda Lyon ; treasurer, Ethel Strange ; secretary, Leon Ricker. Among the first practical tasks of the club was the furnishing and decorating of the new Commuter’s room. By a system of contributions and mutual interest under the guidance of Miss Dorothy Kennison, plans are in progress for making room five sixteen an extremely attractive rendezvous. The old emblem of the former Commuters Club had been retained and a com- mittee is getting a new supply of the attractive little pins to he worn by active members. Just being a commuting Emersonian does not automatically make one a member of the Commuters Club. It is necessary to be officially enrolled, pay the dollar decided upon as dues, and attend a reasonable number of meetings, showing interest in the activities of the organization. All commuters who wish to observe these conditions are cordially invited to become members. The outstanding activity of the Commuter’s Club this year has been an informal dance held in Huntington Chambers Hall on March twenty-second. As the first social appearance of the club, it was pleasantly successful although due to the season, and other school activities it was not financially the success the staff might have wished for to increase the treasury fund. The present quota of active members are full of enthusiasm for their new undertaking, hope that many more of their fellow commuters will join them, and plan a pleasant and successful year for nineteen twenty-nine to thirty. 76 jflenorafj Society President Bessie Hochberg Vice-President Ida Mae Furshman Secretary Edna B. Smith Treasurer Sarah Baker Chairman of Executive Com Edith Belin The Menorah Society, organized in 1913, had the most successful year known in i ts history at Emerson. In its essence, the Menorah Society symbolizes Judaism, standing for the strengthening and furthering of Jewish ideals and principles. Its programs are of both a cultural and social value. The society opened its season with an acquaintance tea to all the Jewish Fresh- men. It was held at Nan’s Kitchen, and the members and future members met and had a merry time. From that time on, the organization met bi-monthly. In consistence with the precedent formal of ’28, a similar dance was given at the Copley Plaza Flotel, the receipts of which went to the scholarship fund, given each year to a needy student. This proved a phenomenal success and was heretofore referred to as the “Miniature Junior Prom! " The society did much along cultural lines: perhaps the high light of the tear in the eyes of the members was the great pleasure derived from bringing to a Thursday morning chapel, Rabbi Irving Miller of Chelsea. His message was so appreciably received that the society hopes to repeat the invitation. Along with its work, the society organized an entertainment group, answering the calls of various religious and charitable institutions in Greater Boston. Included among these was the program given the Fellowship Society, directed by Rev. Jump, the group which met our girls at Temple Israel. The nurses and internes at the new Beth Israel Hospital were likewise entertained. The society furnished a playlet at the Hadassah Carnival at the Hotel Statler, the receipts of which were for charitable purposes. The final event of the season was a “get-to-gether” of all the members at Emerson Hall. 77 Jletoman Cluti OFFICERS President Isobel Collins Treasurer Margaret Brean Secretary Jane Holland The year of nineteen hundred and twenty-eight and nineteen hundred and twenty-nine has been a successful and interesting one for the Newman Club. The first notable event took place on January the eighteenth, when the Louis Pasteur Club of Tufts College, combined with our club, held a very successful in- formal dance at the University Club. Two weeks later an event of an entirely different nature took place in the form of a retreat for college girls at the Cenacle. This proved of great intellectual as well as spiritual value to those who attended. ' I ' lie following Sunday Miss Alice Lang read three of Dennis McCarthy’s poems in honor of him at a tea in the Catholic League House at which Mr. McCarthy was present. The greatest success of the year was on the second week-end in April when the Federation of Catholic College Clubs held its convention in Boston. ' The convention opened with a formal dance in the Crystal Room of the Hotel Kenmore on Friday night. It was followed on Saturday by a Business Meeting and Tea Dance at the University Club. Miss Isobel Collins attended the National Convention at Toronto, Canada, last July and cast a vote for the Emerson Club in the election of national officers. We hope to be able to send a delegate to the convention this year which is to be held at Cincinnati, Ohio. 78 Respectfully submitted, Jane Holland, Secretary. outf)ern Clutj OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary- T reasurer Betty Lou Moore .

Our chief activity of the year was a stunt ; “A Dixie Birthday,” written and directed by our own dear Elsie. As a gift to the college we gave another book to add to the southern library which we hope to see grow year by year. 79 president’s Club A President’s Club composed of the presiding officers of all the active student groups at Emerson, was organized recently with Harry Davis, head of the Forensic Union, as president; Warren Goddard, president of Phi Alpha Tau, as vice-president, and Anne Soforenko, president of Sigma Delta Chi, as secretary-treasurer. The object of the new club is to secure greater co-operation among the student organizations, which now number nineteen, by bringing together the leaders of the various groups. These nineteen active student organizations at Emerson reflect not only the lemarkable growth of the student body in recent years, but the advance which has been made in providing a wholesome college life. The organizations now active include six clubs, four sororities, one fraternity, and four other organizations besides the four classes. The clubs are: President’s, Southern, Canadian, Commuters, Newman and Men’s Clubs. The sororities are: Kappa Gamma Chi, Phi Mu Gamma, Zeta Phi Eta and Sigma Delta Chi. The fraternity is Phi Alpha Tau. Then there are the Emerson V. W. C. A., the Menorah Society, the Forensic Union, and the Student Government Association. The four classes bring the total to nineteen. President Southwick, as head of the College, is a member of the new President’s Club, Dean Ross taking his place in his absence. The house president of Emerson Hall, the new College Residence, is also included in the membership. 80 §?. 3H. C. !H. (Greetings As a perennial flower breaks through the ground after a long winter’s rest, so the Emerson Y. W. C. A. was revived after an extended period of inactivity. The entire year has been Spring time for the association since its whole attempt has been to push up shoots that would break down a rugged wall of prejudice and indifference; to spread out in an effort to reach as many people as possible and to grow definitely toward a goal, an ideal. Progress has been achieved but slowly and as the year draws to a close we look back a bit wistfully and wish that, as an association we could have done more, have meant a great deal more to every one. et there comes at the same time a glow of satisfaction when we consider that the seed is now well planted and with the care- ful nurture which it will receive, the Y. W. C. A. of Emerson will blossom into a lovely meaningful thing. The officers of the association were elected about the middle of the first semester at a delightful tea held in the Parish House of the Old South Church. With the officers elected and a cabinet of able girls chosen, plans were started to revive an organization which had become only a name in the college. These girls hoped to found the association on stronger, broader principles that it might have vision enough to meet the needs of the students and to make its threefold purpose a concrete thing in each member’s life. The opening of the new student rooms at 140 Clarendon Street gave a fresh and lovely impetus to our growth. Here are all students welcomed at any time. Girls are urged to come for fun, fellowship, quiet, rest, to read, play, study or talk. In these beautifully appointed rooms, which the hard work of certain splendid women has made possible for students of greater Boston, is the opportunity to make friend- ships, have interesting contacts with all types of people, to find solutions to many troublesome problems and to rekindle or strengthen a somewhat latent faith. It is the earnest hope of the present leader of the association that Emerson students will make these rooms their own, will learn to love and cherish them because of the mem- ories or contacts which they hold. Behind the entire Y. W. C. A. movement lies that spirit of seeking truth and beauty, which we are trying to inculcate into Emerson students. It atempts to broaden vision and outlook, to give new life interests and purposes, and to create and instill a new spirit of understanding and sympathy. In our efforts to truly follow the purpose which is “to live a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God, to have a part in making this life possible for all people and to seek to understand Jesus and follow him,” we cannot but grasp a new and significant grip on life. It is this which the association hopes to bring to all our students and we feel sure it will “Carry On” through the succeeding years. Life? and worth living? Yes, with each part of us — Hurt of us, help of us, hope of us, heart of us, Life is worth living Ah ! with the whole of us, Will of us, brain of us, senses and soul of us Is Life worth living? Aye, with the best of us , Heights of us, depths of us Life is the test of us! 81 tubent (government Association President Marjorie Manning Vice-President Elsie Shelfer Secretary- Treasurer Anne R. Soforenko The Student Government Association consists of the associating officers and the senate. The Student Senate consists of the Associating officers, the house presidents, the class presidents, and two representatives from each class. During this scholastic r ear of 1928 to 1929 the Student Government Association under the able leadership of Miss Marjorie Manning, has splendidly fulfilled its obligations. After a great deal of earnest effort on the part of the association and the entire student body the Proctor Honor System was installed and proved most successfu l. It is with great confidence that we place the reins in the hands of the Junior Class for we know they will “carry on”. 82 CmerSontan jfetaff Editor-in-chief Picture Editor Literary Editor Art Editor Business Manager Advertising Manager Assistant Advertising Manager . .

First. We bequeath to the Senior Class of 1930, the ingenuity, the rectitude and idealism, which we have fostered. Be it theirs to put these into practice! Second. To the aforesaid class, we leave also these designated gifts: the privilege of addressing intimately the members of the faculty, when such members are not present; our unprecedented attendance-record in Browning class; the treasured alibi of the Senior Class of 1929, “I keep inviolate and hold tenderly, the classic, emerald curtains of Huntington Chambers; and the unalterable privilege of assuming a dignity on all state occasions. I hese gifts to be passed on unsullied from over-use to succeeding Senior Classes. Third. To the Sophomores, we leave the sole right to criticize and correct the incoming Senior Class. This power to be wielded on every occasion, providing the aforesaid class fails to eulogize and exalt their intellectual and altogether praiseworthy predecessors — the class of 1929. Fourth. To the Freshman, realizing their worth and ability, we leave our standards to uphold and carry on. To the joys and sorrows (Popularly called con- structive and destructive criticism) of four years spent in these classrooms and corridors. Fifth. We leave to the faculty the privilege of recalling our virtues and for- getting our vices. We leave also our heart-felt gratitude in payment for the annoy- ance and perplexity we have given them. Sixth. We name Mr. Batchelor as executor of this our will. We realize his sterling worth and know f him to be capable of carrying out our w ill. In testimony whereof, we here subscribe our name, and affix our seal, this the twenty-ninth day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-nine. Senior Class of Emerson College of Oratory, Attorney , Lillian Born. Witnesses : — Senior Class 84 (HP 86 87 Senior ivftnlial |3lap Again one of Emerson’s annual revivals of Old English drama has won the commendation of public and press. A large and discriminating audience applauded and the dramatic critics highly praised the Senior class’ rivival of Thomas Heywood’s domestic tragedy, “A Woman Killed with Kindness,” under the direction of Mr. Belford Forrest of the faculty. The Transcript’ s dramatic critic said of the performance: “As it progressed it became fresh and vital. In part this was due to a skilled and scholarly direction, in part to a performance by young actors who sought to interpret Hevwood rather than themselves and who, without the effort being obvious, gave readings which brought out the exact meaning of the lines enhanced by an ability, at the same time, to give full value to the rhythm of the Elizabethan verse and the Elizabethan prose. Certainly Hevwood had as competent interpretation as can be given him in these new days of naturalistic acting, which unfits so many pro- fessional players for acting in ‘the grand manner’. “The performance was excellent in its essentials: quick paced but not unduly hurried, the speeches projected with discretion and the technical ability to be expected by an institution which stresses expression. The students were largely responsible for the scenery and costuming, both adequate, the scenery being especially well designed for quick changes on a small stage.” 88 Community ©tama Community Drama Students Serve Forty Neighborhood Centers Students in the Community Drama Course at Emerson are receiving practical training at forty-two of the neighborhood houses and other community centers of Greater Boston to supplement their classroom study. This is an increase over last year of ten centers and Mrs. Gertrude Binley Kay, who conducts the course expects that Emerson girls will be serving more than fifty centers before the year is up. One neighborhood has as many as eight girls; another has six. The course for Juniors embraces: Functions of clubs, for young and old; story telling; oral dramatization; production of children’s plays, pantomimes and operettas, and production of plays for young and older people. The Senior Class has been doing more advanced work this year, taking up Civic Theatre production, Greek drama, festivals and pageants. 89 Sctibities; November November November November November November December December December December December December January January January January January 13 — Emerson College Club of Boston, program by club members. 14 — Artists Recital Course, “Coriolanus,” Rollo A.
