T H E EE SON I I 9 3 3! PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF l 9 3 A. EMERSON COLLEGE BOSTON TO THE GREEKS WE OWE MUCK FOR THE MAGNIFICENT DEVELOPMENT OF OUR ARTISTIC TASTES. 1 1 1 1 1 FOREWORD The Greeks have cast a shad- ow of the artistic search for beauty which is enshrined in our civilization. During our four college years we continue this quest for beauty, each with his own hopes and dreams. This book reports, in part, the progress of our search. CONTENTS Jessie Eldridge Southwick DEDICATION To the finest gentle woman whose gracious poise has never wavered ; To the rarest of teachers whose inspirational guidance has awakened our ideals; To the truest of friends whose understanding, sympa- thy, and encouragement has enriched our lives; We affectionately dedicate this book. Henry Lawrence Southwick 3n Minunriant Our Prexy has left us. The kindly smile, the reassuring handclasp and the fatherly word that greeted us so warmly when we came to Emerson will not be waiting to welcome the Freshmen next year. But that same spirit that was his will not die, for we accept Prexy ' s challenge and prom- ise him we’ll “Carry on.” We pay homage to his memory, not with tears, but with a renewed determination to find and seek the best. So may some of Prexy’s fine- ness, reflected through us, be passed on to the Emersonians of the future. The impression made on our lives by the experience of having known and loved Prexy as teacher, guide and friend will live long after the things we have learned from books are forgotten. We say with Hamlet : “He was a man, take him for all in all I shall not look upon his like again.” THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 YEAR BOOK STAFF Editor-in-Chief Assistant Editor Business Manager Edna McGuire Ida Gass Minerva Bugen Sibyl Howe Rebecca Angoff Beatrice Mulcahy Roberta Northrop Mary Walker Eleanor Robinson Art Editor JEANNETTE JACKSON Morwenna Tellier Rose Solomon Business Board Advertising Board Literary Board Photographic Department Humor Department Geraldine LeVeille Rebecca Angoff Gordon Duff Irma Baker Cleda Hallatt Irma Baker Marion O ' Neil Louise Stevens Beatrice Rosenberg Faith Varney Gladys Hanson Zelda Cotton Frances Mills Lorena Mowitz Gladys Freedman Leola Reuter It was not until the year 1933 that this particular family of bees (see Plate 1 above) had evolved certain social and business habits which have recently excited the interest of three other Emersonian species; viz., Seniors, Sophomores and Freshmen. These Juniors, as they arc generally known, have proved themselves wise in choosing a queen who helped them in their work of obtaining plunder for this book which is the culmina- tion of their steady growth. And that’s no " honey. ” This queen bee, it was found, had ter- rific stinging ability, if these, her subjects, did not invade the nests of Seniors, Sophomores and Freshmen at regular intervals.

SENIOR OFFICERS Alene Lincoln, President Gertrude Muldowney, Secretary Natalie Ackerman, Vice President Toba Berman, Treasurer SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Station E. C. O. presents a historical sketch entitled “Four Years With the Class of 1933.” We now turn the microphone over to the principal players and the supporting members of the class. “Hello Everybody! Imagine yourselves back in the year 1929. The scene is in the chapel, and the principal role is taken by Ann Herzog, who, as president, guided the greenest of the green freshman through all the various vicissitudes which confront all freshmen. The high spot of the year was the Freshman Stunt, an original Spanish musical comedy written by one of the members of the class. The plot seems to have slipped our memory, but the songs and dances will be added to that small group of never-to-be-forgotten recollections. The scene jumps to the year 1930. The principal role this time goes to Mr. Stanley Ma- son, the sophomore president. The class worked very diligently to make the Stunt a huge suc- cess, with the result that the most eminent critics acclaimed it to be the best sophomcVre panto- mime ever given at Emerson. Knowing that all work and no play makes Jack and all the little Jills a trifle dull, the sophomores entered into plans for a Hop. The Hop was held at the Cop- ley Plaza, and was one of the big social events of the college year. We shift scenes again, and find ourselves in the Junior class. The year is 1931. Alene Lincoln is president, and under her able and enthusiastic guidance, the class plunges at once into the work that characterizes Junior Year. With perseverance and lots of hard labor, the class ac- complishes several important things. A Year Book is published; Junior-Senior debate is held, with the honors going to the juniors: a unique Song Day and Stunt begin Junior Week; a play “Kismet " is given, the first Junior play to be held at Emerson; and Junior Week ends with the loveliest of Junior Proms held at the Statler Hotel. The Junior year is often the hardest, but we think that without doubt it is most pleasant. And now we are in the present. Alene Lincoln still plays the principal role as president. The first important event of the senior year was the Sneak-day picnic, which the seniors won. There was never a more beautiful autumn, nor more fun had by any class at any time. The Revival play, Thomas Dekker’s “The Shoemaker s Holiday” was the next which required the time and efforts of the Senior Class. Mid-year exams roll around and the seniors spend a hectic- week cramming and burning the midnight oil. so that they may all be graduated. That mile- stone is passed successfully, and all thoughts are turned toward Commencement Week and its many activities. The annual Commencement Recital and Tea, the Debate, the Play, and the Alumni Luncheon are memorable events which take place that week. Finally the great day dawns. The seniors live through it some way or other and find themselves walking up the aisle and climbing the platform to get the cherished diploma. When the last diploma is given, many tearful adieus are said, and four happy and profitable years come to an end. Station E. C. O We have given you a brief resume of the historical sketch entitled “Four Years With the Class of 1933“ and are signing off until the next reunion. “We hope you like it.

The Junior class now appears as rightful leader of Emerson. In their Freshman year, they overwhelmed the school by presenting a Freshman stunt which was acclaimed by all as the greatest, most intense pro- duction ever undertaken. In that same year, the everdauntless class of ' 34 battled the worldly wise sophomores in an unforgetable debate. Time marches cn ! In the fall of 1932, in the ancient halls of Emerson, the class of ' 34 again startled the undergraduates with a stupendous achievement, showing the ver- satility of every member of this talented class. Success again. In spite of odds stacked high against the class, the most successful of all yearbooks was pro- duced, and a Junior Prom was anticipated. Success again!

The scene was 7th Heaven with St. Peter at the Gate. (In- cidentally, no one got the gate.) Father Time was St. Peter’s assistant, but mixed his time so that our dear teachers could not tell the date they arrived in Heaven. Indeed, it was a serious undertaking to judge these super-people. Now, Mr. Shaw’s references were delayed and who was more fitted to recommend him than his spouse, Mrs. Shaw? For a time it looked rather doubtful whether or not Mr. Kozol would treat Mrs. Kay’s dog, Mitzi Boo-boo, with all due respect. We feared that he would try an experimental research on the dog. Yes, Miss Bailey came to Heaven as quietly as she goes about our halls. Miss Dowling was ordered to give the Emersonian angels a rest from expressive action. Did we hear the student body cheer? Do you remember that separate star Mr. Kenny used to gloat about in L’Envoi? St. Peter realized this, and gave him a whole planet! Miss Riddell’s work was not in vain, for the angels were balanced. Mr. Burnham still thought that “Skidding” was a wonderful play. What have they all come to with Mrs. Puffer noticing Mr. Kenny’s tie; Dean still reading notices, Mrs. Black still admiring Carlyle and Ruskin, and Joe Connor still reciting “Romeo and Juliet”? Oh, men may come and men go, but Emersonians go on forever. JUNIOR SONG DAY Junior Song Day this year took the form of “The Depression Schoole of the Songe.” The musical master was played by Mr. Duff, who, we all agree, wielded a mighty baton. As school opened, the pupils romped in singing (?) “School Days,” and eating the well known apples. The business of the day was to salute our beloved professors, which we did of one accord and whole heartedly. Espe- cially dear to our hearts was “Our Sweetheart Forever,” sung to Mrs. Southwick. The program was arranged and directed by Lorena Mowitz and Gladys Hanson. May we, the juniors, add that it our audience enjoyed the visit to “The Depression Schoole of the Songe,” as much as we did, then with all our hearts; The Juniors Thank You! 1 30 ] THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 SONG HITS FROM JUNIOB WEEK Dean Ross Sung to the tune of " The Moon Song " We came to this college to get a degree. We came just as all freshmen do. Then Dean Ross — We found a true friend in you — We knew you as freshmen, As sophomores, too — And now that we’re juniors we say: — Dear Dean Ross — We ' ll think of you always. Inspiration and such admiration as the jun- iors have for you: Our sorrows ended and the whole world blended When you said you’d see us through. We bring our troubles To you every day — To each one you give council true — Dear Dean Ross — This class will remember you. Mrs. Southwick " Sweethearts Forever ” Our sweetheart forever Forever and ever. We may grow old, dear, But our love for you will ne’er grow cold, dear. We will remember in May or December You’re our sweetheart forever — Forever and ever, dear.

We used to do that. With your instruction we ' ve got it down pat. We work with a smile; We find it worth while. Mrs. Puffer, let us gesture for you. The hand that supports; The hand that reveals, With every gesture we show what we feel. We work with a smile, We find it worth while. Mrs. Puffer, let us gesture for you.

Mr. Burnham Sung to the tune of " Nobody ' s Sweetheart Now’’ When we’re low and we ' re feeling blue, Mr. Burnham, we make up with you. We paint our lips, we paint our eyes. Nobody knows us under this disguise. Then all our spirits are gay, Cause you have such bright things to say. With those painted lips — painted eyes — We feel like a bird from Paradise. So — whenever we’re feeling blue, Mr. Burnham, we make up with you. Mr. Kenny Sung to the tune of " The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea " We sure want you, But we’d hate to lose you, You’ve got us in between the devil and the deep blue sea. We forgive you, But we can ' t forget you. You’ve got us in between The devil and the deep blue sea. You’d like to cross us off your list, But when we come knocking at your door, Our voices give your heart a twist, Then we “ah-ah-ah” some more. Tell us what your choice is. Do you like our voices? You ' ve got us in between The devil and the deep blue sea. Mrs. Rogers Sung to the tune of “Who” Who are we thinking of? Who do the juniors love? Who helps us out every day? Who does things in her quiet way? Who means our happiness? Who would we answer " yes” to? Well, you ought to guess — who? Mrs. Rogers, it’s you. Mrs. Kay Sung to the tune of " How Am I Doin’!’ " There’s a girl named Gertie Kay. She has a sweet and winsome way. Gertie can direct and she can sing; Mrs. Kay’d take a chance at any old thing. The other night at Lincoln House, When the band was playing, Gertie stepped out on the floor, And here’s what she’s saying : She ' s saying — How ' m I doin’? O. K. Twee, twee, twee, twa, twa! How ' m I doin ' ? O. K. Kenny, Connor — oh Shaw ! I only meant to do a little bit, But you made me like it and I just can’t quit. How ' m I doin’? O. K. Twee, twee, twee, twa, twa! Miss Bailey Sung to the tune of " Chloe " When we need a gown. We’ve got to go where you are. Whether it’s black or brown, We ' ve got to go where you are. We dash through the rooms and hallways Searching for you, And if you were lost, dear, What would we do? Before we do a play, We’ve got to go where you are. And no place could be too far Where you are. What would we do without you? We’re just wild about you. Most every night and day We ' ve got to go where you are.

Oh, please, lend a little ear to our plea, Say we won’t get less than a “D " And then please give us all " AT.” Mr. Hall Sung to the tune of ' " You’ve Got Me in the Palm of Your Hand” You never told a soul. But somehow we know You ' ve got us in the palm of your hand. We do just what we’re told; To do naught would be bold. You’ve got us in the palm of your hand. We ' re only students under your control, But you’ve done something to our heart and soul ; We all work hard for you, And just because it’s true; You ' ve got us in the palm of your hand And we love it; You’ve got us in the palm of your hand To the Seniors Sung to the tune of " ' We Just Couldn’t Say Good-bye” It soon will all be over. Your college days all through, We know we ' re going to miss you; We mean it — we sure do, You can all believe us, seniors, When we say to you. We just hate to say “good-bye. " The school will seem so empty, When you all depart. We tell you confidentially, You ' re going to break our heart, We know you ' ve done your duty, And now we ' ll do our part. Just before we say “good-bye” The rooms on five — the rooms on two The hall down here below, If they could talk, they’d say to you. We hate to see you go. So please come back to see us. Some day when you are near. We ll all be here to greet you, With a little word of cheer. For we’ll be at dear Emerson For just another year, And now let us say “good-bye.

As freshman, we produced a play, " Ten Nights in a Bar Room.” This play met with much approval among our classmates. The “Sophomore Hop” was held at Longwood Towers. Several months later a pantomime was given which was as equally successful as the “Hop.” Miss Dowling very graciously acted as coach and Miss Robinson was the direc- tor assisted by Miss McNamee. Next year, as juniors, we shall endeavor to carry on with the high stand- ards which we have set for ourselves. [ 37 ] SOPHOMORE OLA Abel, B.

FRESHMAN OFFICERS Virginia Facklf.r. President Hilda Warner, Secretary Norma Morse, Vice President Katherine Cook, Treasurer GERALDINE DONDERO, Publicity Manager FRESHMAN GLASS HISTORY From the east and from the west, from the north, and from the south, came the lowly freshman. We naturally felt a little strange, but our big sisters came to the rescue, and made us lccl more welcome. To them we extend our thanks. Soon we began to feel more at home and strutted around as though we had always lived at Emerson. The terms, Vocal Tech, English Lit. and Rhetoric flowed freely from our lips. We had a nodding acquaintance with the mighty seniors. If we had been a little reserved with each other at first, the physical exams and our hollow backs did wonders to bind us together, in sympathy. As yet our activities have been scarce, but we are slowly making ourselves known at Emerson. It is our sincere hope that we may find a place in your friendship, and promising that as we lake our places, we will live up to the standards that the upper-classmen have set for us. We hope that the class of 1936 will long be remembered as one of the finest classes that ever came to Emerson. 1 41 ] THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 IF KESH Baldwin, Athalie Bass, Lillian Baurer, Ruth Chernes, Florence Cheyman, Ida Cohen, Beulah Cook, Katherine Couchon, William Des Champs, Jeanette Dilday, Charles Doff, Berta Dondero, Geraldine Fackler, Virginia Fernald, Eilene Goldman, Miriam Green, June Guterl, Bernice Hamilton, Allee Hamilton, Virginia Le Bois, Dorothy Levin, Pearl MacDonald, Helen MacDougall, Anne Matison, Julia Meglin, Albina Moore, Beula Morse, Norma Murch.

Theirs was presumably the first performance of Thomas Dekker’s Elizabethean comedy, “The Shoemaker’s Holiday.” The living Argument, Prologue and the haughty, though silent Queen Elizabeth, witnessing the play from the audience added greatly to the atmo- sphere. Simon Eyre, a shoemaker, would be Lord Mayor of London. We see him superintending his journeymen in the shop; we watch him making mock of his betters. This young knave, Ronald, has had the temerity to waste his uncle ' s wealth, then woo the hand of Sir Roger Cateley’s daughter. The Lord Mayor, being that very gentleman himself, does not like this business at all. He advises Sir Hugh Lacy to send his nephew to the continent; but when under the alias of Hans the fellow, brash and likable as ever, returns to England and his beloved Rose, he succeeds in advancing the desires of Simon Eyre and him- self at one blow. Sardonically, the playwright snares the dupish Cateley in a plot of his own making, for smiling Simon, raised to the post of Lord Mayor, stands ready and willing to support the match of his journeyman to the fair Rose. Perhaps it is fitting irony that “The Shoemaker’s Holiday,” played no doubt in 1597 entirely by men, should in the modern age be brought to the American stage by a cast exclusively feminine. The play was under the most able direction of Gertrude Binley Kay.

The annual teas that are generally given by each sorority and the dormitory were combined this year and held in the college residence. In this way the commuters, faculty and the student body had an opportunity to become acquainted early in the school year. We started activities by having a formal dance October twenty-ninth. The room was filled to capacity, and every one had a jolly time. There was a second dance after Christmas. In November the Juniors and Seniors gave a benefit bridge party. It was a very profitable event socially as well as finan- cially. The new students are congenial and have cooperated in a wondrous spirit with " the powers that be.

We, during this memorable year, have done our utmost to uphold its every ideal. It is our hope that the present “esprit de corps’’ will continue and that the suc- ceeding Student Government Associations will realize what an important factor it is in the life of every Emersonian. t 66 ] THE EMERSONIAN. 1933 INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB President Vice-President Secretary T reasurer . Frances Nagle . Barbara Locke . Helen Palmer William Couchon The International Relations Club, the youngest organization in the school, opened its second year with a very enthusiastic corps of members. A large number of the members attended the Student Peace Conference held in February. The club has been able to carry out the policy, inaugurated last year, of placing periodical literature in the school library. Also, there have been two Chapel speakers obtained through the club: Miss Harriet Whittier, who spoke of “World Peace,” and Mr. Li Kai Ying, who spoke on “China.” We plan to bring more lecturers to Chapel during the second semester. At a mid-semester meeting the constitution and by-laws were formally drawn up. We hope that this will insure an even greater interest in the club and a desire on the part of the younger members to make the club live. FORENSIC UNION President Vice-President Secretary T reasurer . Frances Nagle . Dorothea Thompson Bertha Sigel Angela McLean The Forensic Union of nineteen thirty-three began the year with its elec- tion of a limited number of students into the Union. The students were se- lected for their scholastic and oratorical abilities. The new members were greeted by the Union and presented to the college during the chapel hour. During the political campaign the Union sponsored a stirring rally with speakers representing the Republican, Democratic, and Socialistic Parties. A straw vote was then taken showing a Republican landslide. The Union conducted debates with the University of New Flampshire, the Keene Normal School, the University of Maine, and other colleges. The question debated was the cancellation of Inter-Allied War Debts. The program for the year proved to be a most successful, interesting, and beneficial one. [ 68 ] THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 THE GROUNDLINGS President Vice-President Secretary T reasurer Robert Reifsnider Li Kai Ying John MacLaughlin Wai Nong Quong This year everyone is disagreeing with Mr. Shakespeare, who said that “the groundlings for the most part are capable of nothing more than dumb shows or noise. " Not that the organization is exactly quiet, but any noise they make is a boost for Emerson, for their aim is to draw into the school as many men as possible, so that next year they may be equal in quantity, as well as quality, to their fair sisters. As for the “dumb shows” after hearing their radio play, we are again apt to censure Will. Seldom is it, that a male graduate of Emerson fails to dis- tinguish himself in our particular field — and with our present crop of males the outlook for successful careers is very bright. [ 69 ] THE PKAIKIE PLANTATION OLUB President Vice-President Secretary -Treasurer Daisy Pearce Towill Dorothy Abel Dorothy R.

The club meets once a month to discuss any current subjects of interest, or to talk over any problem an individual member may present. Many speakers of note have been brought to the school platform in previous years. This year the club has given a short skit in assembly. At the end of the year a book was presented to the school library. 1 70 ] THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 CANADIAN CLUB President ........ Cleda Hallatt Vice-President ....... LOUISE F.

We saw Walter Hampden’s admirable performance of “Cyrano De Bergerac.” 1 his event served as a successful beginning for the current year.

The play which we hope to give this year is “To Be Dealt With Accordingly” by Mary Katherine Ruby. 1 72 1 NEWMAN CLUB President .... Rosaria Williams Vice-President Madlyn Leonard Secretary ....

Emerson has been most active in the Federation activities. The members have participated in various charity activities by presenting pantomimes and child dramatizations at the Welfare and Orphanage Homes. The New England Province which consists of representatives from four- teen New England colleges and universities has its annual week-end on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of Ap ril. Miss Williams, President of the Emerson Club, and Secretary of the New England Province, represents Emerson on the Execu- tive Committee. Miss Elsie Taylor is serving on the General Committee. This annual week-end is the culmination of the Province activities. The charity work, however, goes on as long as any club representative is in Boston. The Newman Club through its charity support has brought pleasure to both youngsters and club members; it has brought together students from all parts of the country; and through its many educational lectures, given splendid ideals and formed splendid friendships. Emerson is planning in the Newman Club continued growth and success in the new year! 1 73 ] THE EMERSONIAN, 1933 MENORAH SOCIETY President ......... ANNE SNIDER Vice-President .......

Our first social event of the year was a tea given at the Club Vincent when a cordial welcome was extended to our new members. The organization at that time was addressed by Sara Sobiloff, honorary president. Again our annual Menorah Scholarship Dance, given at the Copley-Plaza, December third, nineteen hundred thirty-two. was a brilliant social event. Those who gave their tireless efforts, acting under the chairmanship of Miss Natalie Ackerman, were proud to report that it is again possible for us to present the Walter Bradley Tripp Scholarship to some worthy individual. Various mem- bers have volunteered to hold benefit bridges at their homes in order to further augment the scholarship fund. The organization takes additional pride in announcing that a three-act play is to be presented this year, namely, “The Beautiful Sabine Women,” by Andriev. Miss Clara Wagner will coach. Now that our Menorah Society is a part of the Inter-Collegiate organiza- tion, additional interest in our affairs is shown by all neighboring colleges. 1 74 ] RECREATION CLUB President Vice-President Secretary- T reasurer Daisy Pearce Towill . Helen Palmer . Dorothy LeBois Emerson has gone athletic! The Recreation Club has begun its activities hoping to make this year the banner year. For the first time in the history of the college, letters will be awarded for athletics. Inter-class volley ball teams arc being formed, and the members of the winning team will be given a blocked letter “E.” Miss Elsie Riddell, director of physical training, will supervise the games and award the letters. Another activity of the Recreation Club is a series of monthly hikes, which include sightseeing tours of Boston and vicinity, ending with refreshments at some attractive tea-room.

Junior Class Meetings [ 76 ] THE BOOTLEGGER The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, The moon was ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, The road was a ribbon of moonlight across the purple moor, And the bootlegger came riding, speeding, riding, The bootlegger came speeding up to the road-house door. He’d a white panama on his forehead, a purple tie at his chin, Trousers of whitest flannel and gauntlets of brown doeskin; They fitted with never a wrinkle, his socks matched well his tie, And he rode with a jewelled twinkle, his pistol butts atwinkle, His diamond rings atwinkle under the jewelled sky. Over the road he speeded and came to the road-house door. His horn let forth four mellowy sounds but all was locked and barred. He yelled at an open window, and who should be waiting there But the road-house keeper ' s daughter, Tess, the keeper ' s daughter, Heating a curling iron while she curled her bright red hair. And down in the dark old back yard, some empty bottles creaked, Where the head waiter, Jim. was listening; his face was white and peaked. His eyes were hollows of madness, he tore his hair as he lay. For he loved the keeper ' s daughter, the keeper’s red-haired daughter. And dumb as a dog he listened, while he heard the bootlegger say: " Kiss me quick. My sweetheart, I’m off for a load tonight. And I’ll be back with the beer and rum before the morning light. Yet, if the cops get wise, dear, and harry me through the day — Then look for me by moonlight. I ' ll come to you by moonlight, I’ll get here with the moonshine though the Senate should bar the way. " He jumped on the seat of the roadster, he scarce could reach her lips. But she leaned to him in the moonlight, and he grasped her fingertips, Then he held her close in the moonlight. And one sweet swift kiss in the moonlight, He stepped on the gas in the moonlight and sped away to the West. He did not come at morning, he did not come at noon, And out of the tawny sunset before the rise of the moon, When the road was a gypsy ' s ribbon looping the purple moor, A blue coat troop came marching, marching, marching. The revenue force came marching up to the road-house door. They said no word to the keeper, they searched his cellar instead. And his red-haired daughter ran to her room and watched from the foot of her bed. Two of them watched at each window with a pistol by their side. There were men at every window, and Tess at one dark window, Watching the road from her window that she knew her lover would ride. " Toot-toot, " his horn, had they heard it? That cute sound ringing clear? " Toot-toot, ” his horn, in the distance. Were they deaf that they did not hear? Down the ribbon of moonlight and over the brow of the hill, The bootlegger came riding, speeding, riding, The bootlegger came speeding up to the road-house door. " Toot-toot " in the frosty silence, " toot-toot " in the echoing night, Nearer he came and nearer, and now she saw his light. Her eyes grew wide for a moment, a great deep breath she drew, Then her figure moved in the moonlight. She jumped from the sill in the moonlight, She landed by him in the moonlight, and yelled, “They ' re on to you. " He turned, he sped to the West, and looked at the girl he knew Would in the future make for him a wife both kind and true. And now their children’s children laugh with glee to hear, How Tess, the keeper ' s daughter, The keeper’s red-haired daughter, Saved her lover from getting pinched for selling rum and beer. - — Geraldine Dondero. — With apology to Alfred Noyes, the author of " The Highwayman.

[ 79 ] QJESS THE UQRD EMERSON AND MY COUNTRY SCHOOL By Wai Nong Quong Several years ago when I was in a country school in China I learned to re- cite passage after passage of the Confucian Classics and my memory gradually developed until I could recite book after book. Although I did not wholly understand the hidden meanings in the Classics at first, I soon began to realize some of the significance. The following is the translation of the first unforget- able lines that I learned: " Men at their birth are by nature radically good; Though alike in this, in practice they widely diverge. If not educated, the natural character grows worse — ” Recitation was a kind of game to me because it was highly competitive in nature. I found the classics easy to commit to memory and I usually spent very little time in memorizing even the long passages. So I was always among the first few of the school to recite. Besides the desire to " get it off the chest " there was the feeling of pride and honor for being on the top rank. The competition was very keen for this honor. But I enjoyed it tremendously and to make the enjoyment complete there was always some sort of punishment for the back- ward ones. In Emerson I find recital class quite similar to what I had. So at one time during the first few weeks of my Freshman year unconsciously I said to myself: " At last I have found a school that has something similar to that of my old school in China. I shall feel at home once more! " But to my surprise and perhaps amazement too, I found myself spending hours in memorizing even short selections. My hardship, however, may be mainly due to the difficulty of the English language. So naturally I do not enjoy recital as much as I used to when I was using my mother tongue. Yet I do believe that it is an excellent way to master a language, whether it is native or foreign. To be sure, the methods employed are different and so are the purposes, but the incidental by-products are the same in both cases. The method I am using now is to memorize silently and practice aloud for a few times and then call myself ready to recite. In China, however, I used to read aloud time and again until I got the feeling, spirit and rhythm of the selection. The memorizing part seemed to come as a by-product. Of course recitation in China is not, as it seems to be the case here, for the purpose of interpreting literature upon the plat- form but rather for the student’s own educational advancement. But in both cases the result is the same. Both students eventually become saturated with great literature, a cultural accomplishment that cannot be brought about by merely taking fleeting glances upon great writings. Therefore the more I think of this form of training the more I realize its value as an agent in the field of education and for personal advancement. Anyway this is one sure way of living intimately with great minds. I 81 I FAMOUS PHRASES A student was once heard to explain her dislike for Shakespearean perform- ances by saying that the plays were too full of quotations. There are many quotations in his plays. Many of us, though may pride ourselves upon our great abundance of knowledge, probably do not know the origin of half the common phrases which we are inclined to use as often or almost as often as verbs in our daily conversation. No less a person than Cicero first made use of the expression “While there’s life there ' s hope,” in a letter to Atticus. “We are in the same boat” is not mod- ern slang, but occurs in a letter written by Clement I, Bishop of Rome, to the church of Corinth, in the first century. This letter, we are told, is still extant, and is one of the prized documents of the early church. Lord Chesterfield, of Samuel Johnson fame, is responsible for the expres- sion, “I never put off till tomorrow what I can do today.” This was his ex- planation of how he managed to do so much work. In writing a letter to his son, he said, " What is worth doing is worth doing well.” It was Diogenes, the cynic, who declared that “Habit is second nature.” The phrase “Circumstances over which I have no control” was used by Welling- ton in a letter concerning some affairs in which his son was mixed up and with which he declined to interfere. Dickens also used the expression a few years later when he had Micawbcr write to David Copperfield, “Circumstances beyond my indiv idual control.” " Nothing is certain but death and taxes,” wrote Benjamin Franklin, stat- ing that the Constitution of the United States was in operation and to all ap- pearances would last. “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones” was said by James I of England when his favorite, the Duke of Buck- ingham. complained that a mob had broken his glass window, which was at that time a luxury. “A tempest in a tea-pot” was an old Roman proverb made use of by Cicero. “It is raining cats and dogs,” like a great many other sayings, is a perversion of the word “catadupe” (a waterfall). It is raining catadupes, or waterfalls is the exact meaning. To be in the seventh heaven means to be extremely happy. The Cabbalists maintained that there were seven heavens, each rising in happi- ness above the other, the seventh being the abode of God and the highest class of angels. “He cannot hold a candle to him,” suggests inferiority. The allu- sion is to boys who held candles in theaters and other places of entertainment. The French say “Le jeu ne vaut pas la chandelle,” (the game is not worth the candle). Swift writes: “Others say that Mr. Handel to Buccini can ' t hold a candle.” When members of the British House of Commons and other debaters call out “Spoke,” they mean that the person who gets up to address the assembly has spoken already, and cannot speak again except in explanation of something imperfectly understood. " I have put my spoke in his wheel,” means I have shut him up. The allusion is to a pin or spoke used to lock wheels in machinery. When solid wheels were used, the driver was provided with a spoke or pin, which he thrust into one of the three holes made to receive it, in order to skid the cart when it went down hill. The carts used by railway navvies, and tram- wagons used in some collieries still have a wheel “spoked” to skid it. It may be added that much pleasure and satisfaction may be obtained from the study of the origin and development of phrases. SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY TIME — The future. PLACE — The imperial study of the Czarina of Russia ' s Palace. Alene Lincoln is seated at a massive, ornamented desk. She is the modern Rasputin to the unsuspecting Czarina. She presses one of the many buttons and Grace Brooks, the ever dauntless major-domo, enters. Alene: — Has Madame Waldeen Mills, the omnipotent seeress, come? Grace : — (Loud voice) She awaits without. Alene:- — Without what? Grace: — Without her southern accent, but with her subsidiary accent, Daisy Pearce-Towell. Alene:- — Bid them enter. Exit Grace Brooks. Enter Madame Mills and Daisy Pearce-Towell carrying crystal ball. Alene: — Greetings my former classmates. What news from ye olde United States? Waldeen: — I am simply bursting with efficacious news. You know that Sylvia Kupin- sky, Rosario Williams and Bernice Shafmaster are members of the Imperial Ballet. They per- form such cute aesthetic dances. Alene: — I must give them a ring. (Presses another button.) Enter. Edna Coon, who stands awaiting orders. Alene: — My faithful secretary, make a note in journalistic style to call the Imperial dan- ceuses at the Fine Arts. Edna Coon:- — I — er — is — er — Is that all, your sub-highness? Alene: — No! Bid my hairdresser, Dolores deCosta, discover a new idea for my bangs. Exit. Edna Coon. Daisy : The crystal is getting cold and Bruce is all waitin ' , Madame Mi lls. Can you hurry, please? Waldeen: — Oh yes. I see that Angela McLean is starring on Broadway in “The Forty- Pound Look’’ while Ruth Campbell is her understudy. There are two usherettes, Dorothy Fox and Helen Palmer. Dorothy seems afraid she’ll lose her job. for she can ' t remember to bring her flashlight. Camilla Ciampa is the head check-girl. Alene: — Poor Dorothy! She always was afraid of the dark. You might think she ' d remember. Waldeen: — I see Margaret Schmavonian is publishing six books a month and still has time to direct the news editor, Belle Sylvester, who is editor of fourteen dailies. Alene yawns and presses a button. Alene: — Let us have some amusement from the court jester. Enter breathlessly Helen Bartley. Helen: — Boy, oh boy! I just made a face at a woman traffic cop, Eleanor Pusey Copp. And she thought I was flirting with her. I asked her how the twins were and she smiled and forgave me. That was some close call. Alene: — You may go now and rest up, if we need you we shall send for you. Exit Helen. T H E E M E SONIAN, 1 9 3! 3 Waldeen: — To continue, I see Rosamund Crosbie in a cell reading " In a Prison. " She makes the amazing discovery that Judge Anne Snider of the Inferior Court has written the book with neither the permission of her publisher, Natalie Ackerman, nor her financial backer, Toba Berman, former treasurer of Director Maizie Weisman ' s " Bank on the River.” Daisy: — Wal, I declare — Waldeen, look over in this corner. Do you all see what I see? Frances Hathaway is commanding the " Leviathan " in the absence of Clara Cushman, who was unavoidably detained at Selma Jacobs ' tea room on the water-front , better known as " Happy Sels,” together with her partner, Dorothy Bloomberg. Wal, I never! Waldeen: — That ' s nothing. Vera Dealy is superintendent of a Sunday School in Cuba. She is telling the children never to trust tall, dark, handsome men who have gleaming white teeth. Daisy: — Look here! Mah heavens! Helen Simpson just swam the English channel. She just broke Velma Hall’s record. Mary Lonergan and Ruth Burnham are Helen ' s trainers. Bertha Siegel, Ambassador to France, greeted her while the German Prime Minister, Dorothy Ris- sien, held the loving cup molded by the famous Christine Smith Jewelry Co. Alene: — Speaking of England, Ruth Eton played, " Thus spoke Zarathustra " before the King and Queen of England. Waldeen: — Well, look here! Barbara Locke is director of athletics at the University of Southern California. Celia Cohen coaches the tackling end of the football team. Gladys Ruben- stein and Ruth Fine are giving a benefit performance under the auspices of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Thelma Flinn has been directing 1,400 college students in an evolutionary play entitled " Our Forefathers. " Daisy : — Ejaculation! Say! Claire Safier has supplanted the most famous of beauty specialists, Helena Rubenstein, and travels from continent to continent. Gladys King is her business manager and demonstrates all sorts of beauty restorations. Juliana Jerones is her rival. She demonstrates the correct way to breathe, and claims that true breathing gives beauty. Alene: — What has become of Ruth Stephens? Waldeen: — Oh, didn ' t you know Ruth is one of the leading actresses for the famous Cath- erine Carpenter Filenes par excellence! Pat McKeen takes Mrs. Monteith ' s place and man- ages the dorm !

Skeleton Grants Interview; Tells Secret Thoughts After years of characteristic reti- cence, the skeleton of Emerson Col- lege has finally granted an inter- view. Whether it was the persist- ent journalism student’s words fashioned after those of Henry Longfellow — " Speak! speak! thou fearful guest Whom we. staring, opprest Our eloquence do test With voice impress me. or the pressing economic situation that provoked utterance, the worthy did not deign to say. The subject of age appeared to touch the dignitary, causing a slight spasm of the floating ribs, of which there are more than Adam confessed to possess. We have it on authority, however, that Its Worship is almost prehistoric. Its Excellence apologized for not replying in meter in accordance with the precedent established by the Poet ' s armored fellow. It begged to infer that its habitation was not conducive to flights of poetic fancy. As will readily be seen Our Elder, though he has spoken little, has thought much. With a few rat- tlings certain would-be parts fell into place and The Ancient paused for effect (being well grounded in the Evolution) and began in the words of Hamlet ' s daddy ' s ghost, whom it has often heard quoted — " I could a tale unfold whose light- est word Would harrow up thy soul and freeze thy young blood But this eternal blazon must not be To ears of flesh and blood. " Having created the proper atmo- sphere of awe the sage continued: " My name has been the sport of succeeding classes. The most apt guess, perhaps, though not the most kind, was ' Bonesapart. ' Through the years I have been on exhibition here the students have increased in number, precocity, ill manners, and lipstick. The impudent glances and comments of gum-chewing in- dividuals have always been painful to me but when they have left this amorphous substance clinging to anyone of my parts I have found it difficult to mask my feeling un- der my usual jovial grin.

Students Travel 3 1 8,000 Miles in One School Year Emerson College students travel thirteen times around the world in one school year. In passage, by airplane, steamship, train, or bus, they spend $10,500. Yet the average student spends no more than twenty-five hours in touring or exploring. Few have visited the Capitol at Washington. None have kissed the Blarney Stone. When the school closes for a week ' s or four months’ vacation, the one destination in the minds of most students is Home. Journey- ing between home and college six times a year, the 25 0 students at Emerson cover a distance of 318,000 miles or thirteen times the circumference of the earth at the equator ! Moves Adoption Of Old Chinese Custom It is an old Chinese custom that the students bring to their teachers presents, such as chickens, ducks or, better still, roast pigs. The stu- dents are supposed to bring these presents to recompense their teach- ers for the trouble caused in class- rooms. The bigger the trouble- maker the student is, the bigger the present. This might be a good custom for Emerson, yet it might prove most impracticable — roast elephants might be brought in! NUMBER I. First Manless Class Ever To Be Graduated! The Class of ' 33 is the first manRss class to be graduated from Emerson College. In the Senior Class there have been no less than two men any year since the school became a college with the privilege of granting the degree in 1920. Boasting five masculine represen- tatives, the Class of ' 29 breaks the record with the Class of ' 31 a close second having four men on its roll call. Although this year’s class as Freshmen included one man, now as Seniors the fifty-one members must receive their diplomas without even his presence. Hates, Hobbies— Confessions Of Faculty Folks! From boats to cribs and houses to books, all Emerson teachers have their retreats. The perfect pastime for Mr. Connor is to sit with pipe in mouth in one end of a boat with Mr. Chipman in the other. Now one of these two catch fish by de bait — or is it the line ! For most of the past year Mr. Kozol ' s attention has centered on one " Babsy Lou, " the most per- fect baby living! Who could blame him after seeing those pictures he carries with him?

A storm will break over the school on or about the twenty-fifth of May. This will be quite the worst storm of the year. During this week conditions will be dull with fog and mist. The following week the weather will be bright and clear. EXTRA, MAY, 1933 THE EXTRA ESTABLISHED IN TIME The First Year Book Newspaper Ever Perpetrated Vol. 1. No. 1.

IDIOTORIAL COLYUM Background Originally George and Everett came to 30 Huntington to operate elevators. However, they did not fully comprehend the situation. It was their lot to become informa- tion bureaus for the neighborhood. After having been here a week they acquired an incredible back- ground. They became familiar with the sixteen steps, they knew just how the hand impresses, they pos- sessed a super- knowledge of cook- ing, and they were anything but ig- norant when it came to the tech- nique of piano. Therefore, should we not cease asking such trite ques- tions as, “What ' s the time?” “Has the last bell rung?” or “Where’s Mary? Have you seen Jane?” Rather let us discuss the evolution with them, let us find out about the tasty recipes and a little more of Beethoven. Consider the amount of time absolutely wasted riding up and down when we might be en- gaged in more sagacious subjects. A Chinese Anti -Dry BY Li (699-762 A. D.) What is life after all but a dream? And why should such pother be made? Better far to be tipsy, I deem, And doze all day in the shade. When I wake and look out on the lawn, I hear midst the flowers a bird sing; I ask, " Is it evening or dawn?” The mango-bird whistles, “ ' Tis spring.” T wo Emerson girls commute 116 miles daily to and from studies. OUR DAILY BEDTIME STORY “Yes, sir! They say his name is Julius! But that ' s not all. His last name ' s Caesar!” “What ' s this? What are you talking about?” I demanded as I joined the group. “Haven ' t you heard? There’s a freshman enter- ing this school by the name of Julius Caesar!” Well, here was something to break the monotony. Our first class was Shakespeare and it happened that we were study- ing the play of Julius Caesar. Sud- denly, the door was opened and in walked a perfect stranger. We im- mediately began to sum him up. Decidedly good-looking, even hand- some. His straight Roman nose, firm chin and mouth, steady eye appealed to every co-ed. The “freshie” sat down and we tried to continue the lesson. Julius was called upon to recite. We wilted in amazement and awe at his wonderful powers. Even the teacher was astounded. Our second class was American Literature. At last we were able to outshine him. He seemed to know nothing whatever about Longfellow, Lowell, Hawthorne, or Whitman — had never even heard of “The Raven. " We wanted to continue that class but we had Children ' s Theatre. Mrs. Kay seemed to know him quite well — she called him “darl- ing.” We were to try out for parts and Caesar was given the lead immediately. He became a water-fairy and we were amazed at the success with which he tripped across the stage. He made the most graceful of Miss Riddell’s dancers envious. But crash ! He tripped over a rock, which had been placed beside what was later to be the course of a brook, under Mr. Hall’s careful supervision. With the crash, I blinked and rubbed my eyes. I yawned. I realized that my alarm clock had fallen to the floor. I saw it was so very late that I would have to cab to Thirty Huntington in order to be on time for that quiz Mrs. Southwick was to give us on “Julius Caesar” ! A new traffic light system is to be installed on the dorm fire es- capes. Rough Stuff At Huntington Hall Frights Freshie If any young man came to Em- erson with the idea that the girls played games that were the rage in the days of crinoline and hoop- skirts, he must have received rath- er a rude jolt when he went in to see volley ball in Huntington Hall. It would be amusing to note his reaction as he watched our muscu- lar Amazons drive that sizzling ball over the net. Such unseemly con- duct most certainly would have driven his grandmother to her smelling salts. And — the unmaidenly exhibi- tions he might witness during a gymnasium class! He would gasp at the extraordinary garb. When he saw the zip with which a young lady could toss a bean-bag, he would make hasty exit with a “Tish, tish and a tosh, tosh,” un- til he found an evolution class — and what seemed nearer his refined and old-fashioned sense of young womanhood. But it’s a cinch of a “serve” to a step of the evolution that it wouldn’t be long before that young frosh would be lingering at an Emerson Volley Ball Game, shout- ing, “Atta girl, Rosemary” when he should have been reciting, “I come from haunts of coot and hern — ” LIL CLARA’S NOTEBOOK Yesstiday me an’ Rooth Cam- bell wuz sittin on the steps down in the frunt hawl. we wuz rackin our branes tryin to think uv sum- pin xsiting to do. we coodent so we went for a wawk downstares an who shood we see but bell Silves- tur comin our way. we sez, come on fur a wawk so she quick sed she wood. we went past the check- room and wat shood wee see but statuz. there wuz oodles of em all standin rownd in the hawl.

Jenny, who has reigned in the check room for sixteen years, claims they no long- er receive the proper amount of re- spect becoming their advanced sta- tion. Time was when awestruck un- derclassmen let their betters pass before them, making the way to their hats and coats smooth and easy. Without hesitation or em- barrassment, Freshmen now step on Seniors’ toes. Sophomores knock their elders’ hats on the floor and Juniors would just as soon shove a Senior aside any time of the day. Manners left with prosperity, if not before. Oh, for the good old days when Seniors were all they should be and underclassmen were merely something under foot! Seekers after wraps who have forgotten their numbers no longer approach with fear and trembling. No wonder Jenny is pessimistic. Coats that reek of smoke are Jenny’s chief abomination. After she has stowed away a sufficient number of such garments there is only one more degrading step, one more straw to break her back. That is the request for “my cigarettes from my pocket, Jenny, please!” In private life Jenny, who is Mrs. Leftwich, likes to dance, play whist and have " general fun all around.” Of the screen stars she says that Adolphe Menjou. her ideal, far surpasses Clark Gable. Lewis Stone and Colleen Moore are among her favorites but Greta Gar- bo excels them all because " nobody knows where she’s at.” POSITIONS WANTED WANTED — Fifty-one positions as teachers of speech in secondary schools in attractive parts of the United States ; the pupils to be pre-disciplined, literary-minded, and dramatically in- clined with a capacity for mastering the Evolution of Expression ; the work- ing facilities to include a gymnasium with floor mats, a Little Theatre with approved lighting system, elaborate scenery, willing stage hands, enormous costume rooms and abundant make-up kits of a fastidious, odorless brand ; the ascending salary to begin at $2000 per annum, the boardin g houses to be completely equipped with modern con- veniences such as private radios, self- working windows, and automatic mid- night lunches ; the young male society to be handsome and sociable ; the work easy and appreciated ; the play heavy and continuous.

ADVICE to the LOVELORN This column is conducted foe the faculty and the students of Em- erson College by the Senior Class who feel their college career in books and roadsters, classes and “frat” houses, enables them to an- swer all queries on these vital mat- ters. Q. Dear SENIOR SAGE: I hope you can help me in this, my time of deep despair. For many years I have showered my affections on a clean-li ving, upright young citizen and I think he loves me. I have hesi- tated to lead him on because he is suffering from a psycho-iliac distor- tion and his left foot is pronated. Do you think these defects will mar our happiness? PUZZLED. A. My poor dear PUZZLED: Your reticence is refreshing but has endured long enough. Fear no un- happiness because of physical draw- backs since in the words of a well- known friend and writer. " Love is not elevated lust.” Q. Darling SENIOR SAGE: Now, I ' ve never been disappointed in love. Of course, the one great love of my life has been work, work ! But to be perfectly frank, darling, I have a hidden and secret passion to be a great director. I ' ve seen a great many of them at work, the greatest in the world — Meyer- hold, Clyde Fitch, Stanislavsky ' . That man — charming, not a bit good looking, but fascinating, and absolutely bound up in his work! Which brings me to this — I have a dog and wear ankle socks — what shall I do to enlarge the size of my hats? Sentimental (but never saccharine) DIRECTOR. A. DARLING. Remember to press upward with the crown of your head and practice the Physical Culture exercises daily. No equip- ment is necessary except free, loose clothing and an absence of any en- cumbering jewelry. Q. Dear SENIOR SAGE: I, for the first time in my life, am forced to seek advice from others. My wife refuses to give the baby spin- ach! I am astounded! What shall I do? Is it possible that she is projecting? ANXIOUS. A. Dear ANXIOUS: No, we don’t think your wife hates you and is taking it out on the baby. Are you sure you aren’t suffering from delusions of persecution? Did you ever try to wash spinach? Study Credits Not Good For Bank Holidays The elevator-boy and the acting- president of the college were in much the same financial condition during the bank holiday. A kind of good-natured spirit pervaded the corridors as students cheerfully dis- cussed where they would lunch and how long the remains of last week ' s allowances would last. As stragglers to early classes at the sorority houses and dorm started out late, they looked forward to half-cuts for tardiness instead of sharing a precious nickel in a cab- fare to avert the outcome. Nearby restaurants and beauty parlors cheerfully offered credit, adding a kind of spirit to the catastrophe that failed to daunt the students and faculty. One teacher was actually heard to say he felt happier than he had for two years since the crisis would necessitate a change in the economic situation. The depression with all its dis- tressing details proved to be a sort of drama to Emcrsonians in which they must play with animation and attention to the rest of the sixteen steps of the evolution, not forget- ting the all-important sense of hu- mor. Memories Student days at Emerson are, for Seniors, crammed with mem- ories of varied interesting events. Few colleges, as students transfer- ring elsewhere admit, furnish the interest and excitement crowded in- to one Emerson day. The very na- ture of our study course is, in a sense, responsible. Events of our days here come tenderly to our minds as we. the Seniors, prepare to leave. Memories of the big events — stunts, recitals, plays — will always remain. It will be harder still to forget that “Young Lochinvar has come out of the west, " that " I am ready: I am content, " that Chekov is superb and never saccharine, that we didn’t work in vain on just " two notes.” Neither can we forget mutilated frogs, lost cloak checks and a seem- ingly angry face, and a host of other things. As parting Seniors " we sigh for what is not” as we recall, how fondly, so many steps in the climb. Now, in the words of one to whom we are indebted for priceless mem- ories of Room 524, " What ho. Seniors! Voila!” EXTRA. MAY. 1933 Hates, Hobbies Confessions Of Faculty Folks’ (Continued from Page 1) books of travel and England. " Every nook and corner, every cottage and country lane of Eng- land. " he knows and loves. There is a lake named for Mrs. Black in Canada. Her interest in- clines toward houses and architec- ture but she likes to go away by herself into unexplored places, where she can be alone with Nature — and Browning. Mrs. Puffer feeds the birds every morning. Perhaps we will have to take up this hobby to get the right gestural response for " Hail to thee, Blithe Spirit.” Mr. Kenney keeps bees, grows roses, does the repairs to his own home, does gardening in the sum- mer — and still claims to have no hobby. Mr. Hall is interested in pho- tography, moving pictures especial- ly. Mr Hall, how dare you be interested in moving pictures in a school of the drama? Oh. well, that’s only a hobby! Whoever would have guessed that Mr. Connor’s pet aversion was academicians? Neither has he any affection for the Barrymores whom, no doubt, he has judged by the Evolution of Expression and found wanting. As he has tried to tell us. Mr. Kozol greatly admires Emersonians as individuals but loathes Emerson as a whole This would not be if it weren’t for that inevitable back- row ! The shadow of Mr. Scammell’s life is cast by modern American recipes in the “Ladies ' Home Jour- nal.” " Delineator,” and “Good Housekeeping” — particularly those appertaining to pineapple which he deems “awful”! Mrs. Kay has a pronounced aver- sion to grape-nuts and shredded wheat, loves the color purple, en- ioys Sunday more than any other day of the week, adores orchids, is devoted to French cooking — all of it — en masse! LOST AND FOUND LOST -A chord, during Vocal Tech- nique class. Finder please return to Miss Marie Robinson. LOST — A strip of child ' s subway tick- ets, serial No. 010936. Finder please return to Bobby Reifsnider at the book- store. FOUND — A pair of glasses believed to be owned by Selma Harrison. They are in perfect working order. Noted Chemist Discovers New High Explosive Before coming to Emerson, Mr. Li. a talented chemist of Tech, dis- covered a mysterious new element — Woman. Enrolled at this col- lege, he was able to pursue his study of the phenomenon further. Out of his extensive research he gives us this analysis: Woman — A member of the hu- man family. Symbol — Wo. Occurrence — Can be found wherever man exists. Physical properties — All colors and sizes — always appears in a dis- guised condition. Surface invari- ably protected by coating of paint or film of powder (composition immaterial) . Boils at nothing and may freeze any moment: melts, however, when properly treated. Very bitter when not used correct- ly- Chemical properties — Extremely active. Possesses an affinity for gold, silver, platinum and precious stones. Violent reaction if left alone. Able to absorb all sorts of expensive foods at any time. Turns green when placed near a better looking example. Ages rapidly. Caution — Highly expensive at all seasons. Must be kept away from bargain counters, beauty shops and jewelry stores. Class Cutters The Senior Class triumphed on Sneak Day. and enjoyed their one-day vacation from classes in merrymaking at the Orchard House. Holliston. One thing was discovered by the Juniors — that was the date the Sen- iors planned for the “sneak” (which shows that the Juniors are very intelligent — but, of course, the Seniors are one more year that wav) . The day at Holliston was indeed happy and unforgetable. It was fall — the Seniors saw " nature in the raw” — “they walked a mile” and “they were satisfied.” They re- gained that " school girl complex- ion. " They drank the drink which " quenched their thirst” — (oh pro- hibition, quite ) — and — they all re- cited poetry on the way home! They ' re trained that way. The sophomore class nearly died of boredom — and peace — one day when Margaret Just failed to at- tend her usual classes. Skeleton Grants Interview; Tells Secret Thoughts (Continued from Page 1) “Only one person has been my friend throughout. Her gentle and ever scientific regard have warranted my affection. Any expression of my feeling has appeared grotesque to the students, I fear. When I had hoped to be an artist in the realms of expression it is hard to still find myself in the role of an entertainer. “I have watched the Evolution working here for some time and it certainly is a fine system. How oft has manifested inability to appre- ciate it nearly compelled me to burst from my dim recess to cry down the traitor! Of course, students are very busy. At least one would think so to hear the excuses used in classes. Their repetition from year to year is one of my chief sources of amusement. “You have noticed that after the most serious of my accidents my arms were replaced incorrectly. This sad detail caused me no little trouble and annoyance until I was able to master the mental concept and manipulate them again in harmony with the rules of the Physical Cul- ture. It has been exceedingly diffi- cult to keep myself in any kind of order hanging in this unnatural po- sition : but in my day, I would have made a dangerous candidate for the Posture Ribbon.” After such prolonged silence Bonesapart found speech slow, but constant connection with a college of oratory had had its effect and presently It proceeded with some feeling — " There has been considerable de- lay over one all important matter. If you would bring it before the Board of Trustees I should appre- ciate it. I am sure the students, who I know sympathize with me in their hearts, would support you with a petition. As an attendant of long standing (I should say hang- ing) of classes at Emerson College I make request to be granted the degree of B.L.I. — Bachelor of Long-suffering Inspiration. “When I finally disintegrate, even as the ‘Deacon’s Wonderful One Hoss Shay,’ I do earnestly beseech that only an Emerson graduate be allowed to take my place.” The sophomores have been walking gingerly of late. Apparent- ly “the measure of our unmade graves” is somewhat varied — also the bruises on our too prominent points. THE EM EES ON I AN, 1933 JOKES Getting out a paper is no picnic. If we print jokes, folks say we are silly. If we don’t, they say we are too serious. If we publish things from other papers we are too lazy to write. If we are rustling news we are not attending to news in our own department. If we don’t print contributions, we don’t show proper appreciation. If we do print them the paper is filled with junk. Like as not some fellow will say we purloined this from another paper. We did — and we thank him. Eleanor — “I think Gordon recites very well, don’t you?” Leola — “All he needs is a short course in electrocution — to finish him off as you might say.” Mrs. Kay — “Well, Jeanette dear, why don ' t you answer me?” Jeanette — -‘‘I did, Mrs. Kay, I shook my head.” Mrs. Kay- — ‘‘Darling, how did you expect me to hear it rattle all the way up here?” Roberta Northrup — ‘‘Oh. this morning my dog chewed up my Macbeth. What shall I do?” Louise Stevens — ‘‘I have a Literary Digest, if you want it.” Mr. Kozol — ‘‘Can you give me a definition of an orator?” Bright Student — ‘‘He’s a person who is always ready to lay down Your life for His country.’” Rosaria Williams — ‘‘I’m the goat of that class every time.” Rosamund Crosbie — ‘‘Serves you right, you shouldn’t butt in so much ” Thelma Flinn — ‘‘Oh, hello, did you get your hair cut?” Vera Dealey (sarcastically)- — “No, I merely washed it and it shrank.” Junior — ‘‘I guess I’ll give a pantomime for my next recital.” Freshman — ‘‘Oh, yes, wasn’t that written by Barrie?” Frosh — “Must get some sleep because I am getting up at five in the morn- ing” Junior — ‘What for? It is your first day at school.” Frosh — “I know, but I have got to study my evolution.” One Freshman became quite indignant when Miss Riddell questioned her as to her parentage. That Freshman finally retorted: ‘‘My ancestors came over on the Mayflower, and I am seven times a Daughter of the Revolution.” Mr. Connor — That play you have selected is very beneficial to a person contemplating marriage.” Love-lorn Junior — “That is why I chose it.” I 89 ] THE EMERSONIAN. 1933 Abel, Dorothy Ackerman, Natalie Adelson, Alice Allen.
