Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candle- stick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. " A GIFT TO THE GIVER " Everyone at the meeting was bored, until a gentle-faced little man took the floor. ... No one was paying enough attention to catch his name; but his quiet words suddenly registered like an electri- fying pronouncement. " ' It seems to me, ' he said, ' that the important thing is not raising money, but getting people to give; not what the money does for the institution that gets it, but what it does for the people who give it. What I hope is that you can save the privilege of free-will giving. ' " That was all, and yet the room suddenly came alive. Instead of the usual perfunctory applause when the man sat down, there were several mo- ments of silence. " Perhaps because he is fundamentally a lover of the simple things, and perhaps because we are so close to him, it is difficult to express in just a few words or even in a great many, our feelings toward this humble Psychology professor. The gentleness of his nature, the innate kindliness, and the per- sistent, almost incredible faith in all men make him that rare being, a genuine humanitarian. For these reasons and many more — familiar to those who know him — we dedicate this book to Professor Grover C. Shaw, a gift indeed to the giver.

The occasion was Founder ' s Day and they were all related to it in different ways. Their purpose on the small stage was, of course, to explain this relationship. They seemed like three actors, each about to pit his particular exhibition against the next— and yet they weren ' t and that wasn ' t their aim. The elderly woman sp oke first, and with such fire and spirit that it was impossible to remember her age. There was nothing but the rousing sincerity of her words. They came from the center of her being, and we felt rather than knew that she loved them by the way her tongue lingered over them and sent the words resoundingly forth. She was beloved and even to those " who were not of the generation of Joseph, " there came a realization that here, in truth, was the quintessence of our revered and venerated tradition. The aging man formerly dean and now president emeritus, tried with a fear of the exigency of time to recapture a past glowing with triumphs made sweeter by the conquering of so many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. We listened and endeavoured to imagine — for we were a school of strongly imaginative people — as he enumerated names from the long list of former outstanding lecturers, professors and students who had made up the older glories, but it was hard. He too, was well- loved because of his dearness and foibles as much as for the more academic virtues. And we rose with the unanimous accord that prompt- ed loyal hearts to acclaim a generous and indomitable spirit when he had finished. The younger doctor. of philosophy with his disturbingly enigmatic face slowly drew the robes of his office about him, and in a quiet but powerful manner pointed the way to the new path. Though offering the respect due the Old Guard with one hand, we knew that in the other there were the half-disclosed prospects of the future — the elements of progress needed to bring our college the recognition it merited. As we listened to the fragmentary reports of his conferences with illustrious members of all branches of the arts, and the tentative plans he was already beginning to make a reality, there were few who were not aware that the " Old Order " had begun to change during those moments. Admiration and respect were the sentiments aroused as he brought the convocation to a close. The atmosphere was distinctly portentous and, as it reached each corner of the little theatre, one that could not help but give rise to ques- tion. It was a choice left up to the individual, for we had been given a glimpse of the past and future, and we knew the present. There could be only one decision . . . Page Six BOYLSTON GREEN, PH.D.

As he turned suddenly from the board, she wondered if the letters seemed unsteady because of his humility or because perhaps, he very often did not know. After all, he continually implied a relationship between himself and the statistic, noting that even Einstein was right only two per cent of the time. He was saying something that the girl did not fully hear, so that when his last words were left hanging in the air, she quickly offered an answer, which he with his gentleness accepted. He could easily have made her look ridiculous, b ut her ubiquitous self-confidence did not allow her the necessary objectivity to view and evaluate each momentary reaction. The answer was, of course, completely wrong. " And if you could, class, what most would you like to feel you had accomplished, as a teacher retrospectively considering your life efforts? " There was silence and then one or two responses offering nothing. It was a class like that, not especially alert, the great majority not even remotely interested in education — no worse than any other, certainly no better. " You ' ll probably all be cross with me when you see what I ' m going to put down, " he said. The girl waited with eagerness as he completed the phrase begun on the board. She was considered a bright girl, so that she showed her disappointment and incredulity when she read the words, " Increase a sense of ■ dignity in Man. " The bright girl did not understand, perhaps be cause she was only bright by comparison, or perhaps because this short simple man was offering his gentle wisdom to those who were too youthful, too crass to understand. " As I grow older, class, " he said in a voice that was not at all like his usual tone, " I feel the need more and more of this sense. It becomes absolutely necessary to me to be able to reassure myself that man is essentially good, and working for the rela- tive good of all his fellows. " The girl stared at him, unable to take her attention from the pale green-blue eyes that were fired with an intensity rarely glimpsed in the mild, everyday manner. She was not an intrinsically selfish person, but she did believe with every corner of her mind that things were never done properly unless you did them yourself, especially when you were fully convinced that your ability was much superior to that of those around you. Stupidity and slowness were the most abhorrent afflictions imaginable to her, and she felt secure in the knowledge that indecision and intolerance were foreign to her nature. One was always given to understand that her life was planned and there wasn ' t a living soul who could deter her from the course she had decided to follow. She had done some few good things, and perhaps even some outstanding ones; but like the class, she was no better nor worse than any of the rest of them. Actually, she was only a little quicker, getting most ideas by intima- tion rather than explanation, and probably the best that could be said was that she was destined for an orderly and lonely life by some remote seacoast where no one could rouse her ire or disturb her quiet. Therefore, she could only think, " What does he mean? What is he getting at? " As she desperately tried to set her mind in order to follow the turns of his thinking, his voice continued on a gentle though almost min- isterial note. He had said beforehand, in that half apologizing way, that he was going to preach for a while. " It makes me happier than anything I ' ve heard in a long time to know that they ' ve discovered a new element in an undistinguished little house somewhere — something that ' s never been in the world before — something that can be made again and again and won ' t disappear after this first performance. " " What is he saying? " she demanded repeatedly of herself. It was difficult for her to keep up v ith him. Page Fourteen " What would make me even happier now, " he continued, " would be to find that Stewart here, and Woods or Bates, could put the use of this element to the construction, preservation and protection of man, rather than toward his destruction. " The girl ' s neighbor whispered timidly, " 1 don ' t get all this — what has this dignity go to do with the atomic era and the new element and the rest of his talking? " The girl did not hear, she was waiting for what was coming. She sensed it would be the most important thing of all. His voice changed and became deeper and more serious, " The finest and best discovery ever made was that Stewart here had a soul. " The words fell softly on the class — there was not a sound — no one breathed for a full minute. Then he drove hard, " Yes, the fact that Stewart was sitting right in front of me had some small part of her worth saving, restored and increased the dignity of man. " The girl ' s fingers had become white with only tiny threads of red, as she pressed them into the arm of the chair. She reached for his words and the pressure became unbearable for a pulsing had started in her head and every muscle ached with her tenseness. She sat in this rigid position listening to him. " Before, only man had a soul; woman was his reflection and not a very good one. But because he one day looked at her and realized her soul was more them that of an ox, that she too, might have intrinsic good, man became a more worthy crea- ture. " The throbbing increased, she could scarcely see for the pain of threatening tears, her hand hurt and she thought she might be sick. She kept thinking, if only she could run out of the room — get away, not have to listen to any more. She deter- mined she couldn ' t keep looking at him, she wouldn ' t. She was afraid he might see her face — he would know how it was and that was the last thing she wanted. " There must cease man ' s inhumanity to man! Common words, trite words, yes, but someone will go on saying them until life is completely smothered. It ' s impossible to do anything about hope, you ' ll find it ' springing eternal ' in spite of its being old and hackneyed. How can we help? Give each other a leg-up in just the ordinary day to day living. Whenever I want to believe in the goodness, the worth of man, I remind myself of a little man I knew here. His name isn ' t important, but he was a fine professor who came to this college to teach. It was known by many people that he drew in advance against his salary and lived very poorly. His clothes were shabby, he almost never had more than a quarter to his name and no one understood what happened to the money he earned, which was by no means paltry. There were never outward evidences of any spending. One day, he had a heart attack and died imme- diately. It had also been noticed that a few months before his death, his circumstances had begun to improve generally, along with his manner of living. A short while later, I learned the story. It seemed that some years before, this man had interested a number of his friends in buying stock in a corporation which eventually failed. He was not responsible by law, as you well know; however, he took it upon himself within those next years to pay back every cent lost by his friends in the fiasco. It took half his life, but he died a happy man. " It was a simple story, simply told. The girl jerked her head toward the window. He was like the voice of conscience, this humble professor extraordinary — of course, that was it, like the gull that flew serenely across the river, straight and peacefully. She was ashamed, deeply ashamed. He was so good — if it were not true, would it be possible for one unassuming man to pry loose the set mould of a girl who knew v hat she wanted from life? She did not want to leave anymore, but as she came back to the classroom world, she let out a long sigh and said, " God . . . " He was erasing the words from the board. BEATRICE DOWD.

From Kay ' s gentle manner and yet strangely forceful voice, we get the instant impression of a real Emersonian. We regret her too-short time with us, for her quiet dig- nity has helped temper our more rambunc- tious spirits.

We think of her comic lyrics or her sentimental ballads, and the subtle humour and warm sympathy that belong to them. Whether in platform art class or across a table at the Espie, June ' s gift of audience contact never fails her. Page Twenty-Five CONFOUNDS THE ACTUAL AND THE FANCIFUL, LILLIAN THELMA GOUSE, A.B.

SENSITIVE Page Forty-Eight THE THREE GREAT HONORS THE MAY QUEEN PATRICIA MAXWELL THE PROM QUEEN ELEANOR GREENE Page Forty-Nine THE SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Dexter sat in the smoker, feeling the hard bench at his back and watched the smoke from his cigarette curl its lithe arms about other twisting arms from other cigarettes. There was a definite pattern to this, he thought, the effort to escape from its irrevocable destiny, the unwilling blending and the final great unit — he shook himself — it was only the warm air rising to the ceiling. Strange, he thought, some- where, once before, that same idea occurred to me while I was smoking. Where was it, where — ? And then he remembered — when he was a Freshman . . . Dexter sat in the smoker, feeling the hard bench at his back and watched the smoke from his cigarette curl out, up and away and pondered the problem at hand. Dexter was serious as a freshman and determined to make good. His star had already begun to throw off a few sparks, and because he was sincere, he worried about what might happen to the Freshman Class in 1942 without the help of Morrill and Elmore. The war first began to move close that year and Emerson could not very easily step out of its path. Morrill was our president, very gentle, kind and intelligent. It was not strange that his voice and person were chosen to play God in " Hannele. " Our fears were realized; Morrill and Elmore both went to the Army soon afterwards. We were not all misfortune though — there were days when we were very happy. For example, there were the usual receptions, and Hell Week in a class by itself, and those unforgettable serio-comic anatomy periods. Then too, the Convo. day came when we, under Mr. Shaw ' s direction, gave " The Women, " which if not the most successful venture undertaken at Emerson was certainly one of the most widely dis- cussed. Bobbie Rice and Dottie Thompson, now married, awoke next morning to find themselves famous figures. There was a song, too, that will always recall Freshman Year, a little ditty entitled " Take Me Back To New York, " usually sung by Cherry Baliban and Ian Hall, as we all hastened to have Miss Riddell strengthen our pec- torals. In Mr. Connor ' s classes, two very striking pearls, by no means paired, but each individually precious and valuable, were discovered. Millie Schwartz was one and Stelle Lally the other. Millie, always so calm and reflective outwardly, was unmis- takably passionate and intense within, strange and paradoxical. It was a memorable Saturday when Stelle, who seemed more contained than usual, gave Amy Lowell ' s " Patterns. " The voice that was the extraordinary example of Mr. Kenney ' s command, " Down on the vocal cords! " will always ring in our memories with, " Christ! What are patterns for? " Then it was spring and we knew we soon must lose Paul Haney, our Comp expert, whose criticisms were too good to be missed. As the semester turned, we had already lost our wonderful Dr. Wiley, for whose acquaintance alone it was worth coming to Emerson. She was replaced by our quite winning, loyal and very dear Mrs. Standish. It would be unfair to forget that inimitable pair of creators, who fur- nished us with much merriment on joint topics, such as " Ah Spring! " and " Boh Spring! " — namely Lib Rickards (now Eisenhardt, having just married her Harris) and Ronnie Caulfield, a fascinating girl. The only other event in this first year evolved Page Fifty around the writing of a love letter by a strange, aloof girl named Beatrice Dowd. It was singular in that what she had apparently never tried or wanted to do in the entire year was accomplished within a day following its reading. She became known throughout the school and many realized that this was to be a future literary light. The tragic episode of the Coconut Grove left its mark on all of us, especially with the loss of two Emersonians. It was as though a pall had fallen over the city so completely that any natural levity became smothered in the general unhappiness. Dexter thought, on remembering, that it was odd how much there was to us, even in the beginning . . . We started off on the wrong foot as Sophs, he thought, now that he could laugh at it. Maybe it would be a good thing to abolish hazing and Freshman-Soph night — it certainly would have been better for us. How much Emerson property was ruined that unfortunate evening will probably never be entirely known! At any rate, it ' s past, and we did try to make reparation. We were growing not only mentally, but as a group. 1943 brought us Max, of the green slanting eyes and harlequins. Max, whose vocal husk and clean-cut, sure way of executing her activities made her a worthy opponent and all-round good sport. There was Lulu, too, of the generous, tender nature who gradually headed herself toward the Emerson dramatic goal. Bobby Guest was born, in a manner of speaking (we are fond of saying, as the son of Edgar A.) that year, as was also, the combination Guest-Reynolds, which first achieved prominence in " Turandot. " Dexter laughed as he remembered his rags persistently falling and Bobby ' s sudden decision to end it all by tearing them right off — v hich he proceeded to do. Honey became one of us and if at first we thought her interesting but quiet, it was only because we little imagined the rollicking, side-splitting Dr. Essie Bradley she was later to become in " The Man Who Came To Dinner. " Miss Frees was Soph dramatic director and under her we found " Midsummer Night ' s Dream " a success. Though we had outgrown our foolhardy Freshman days, we had the courage to set a precedent with our Sophomore Hop, held at the Miles Standish. We were proud we had contributed a compensatory offering for our " over-eager " beginning. Com- mencement brought us Phyl and Barney playing " Claudia " and " David, " and every- one wondered how much was acting and how much was real. By this time, Bonnie Jean ' s monologues had become as famous as Mary Russell ' s scream-like sneeze, and so, we were two years on our way. The losses of Mr. Wade and his amazing sets, along with that of Dean Higgins and his magic, made us feel that life was a series of peopled progressions, wherein only those could be retained v ith whose circle we joined and remained. Dexter thought, " Why we were almost Juniors then . . . " Being Juniors brought us many changes, he mused, additions and subtractions. We became restless, searching, and the mental growing pains had begun in earnest. We had a deadline, and many seemed to know it. Had not Mr. Shaw said, in those wonderful Psych classes, that by twenty-one we would have reached the peak of " the period of maturation, " and that we would be thinking as well as we ever could? Page Fifty-One We absorbed from Dr. McKinley and the I. R. C., and Dr. Gray-Smith ' s academic and scholarly course in Philosophy. There was Mr. Kenney who helped us withstand the alternate buffetings of Mrs. Kay and the Drama, by his " Tell me " and " Use the gover- nor, boy! " And there were student highlights too, for though we scarcely suspected it then, Sarah, " our Plex, " was during the year to find herself with the Junior Academy Award, as Emerson ' s most attractive promise to the future. We added Kagy, the engaging Texan, and Gray, another young lady from south of the Mason-Dixon Line. The South claimed us that year, since besides these two, she sent us from her very heart. Tee and Nancy of Florida. " Gloucester by the Sea " offered Shirley Surrette, and her gentleness and intelligence made us accept without hesitation. " Merrily We Roll Along " was the first play of importance in arena style, and because of it, we discovered the element of greatness in Lulu. Dexter thought, with not a few sighs, of the work that had gone into the preparation of that prize of all male roles, " Romeo. " (The success of his performance can only be measured by the fact that he remained our president and most outstanding student for his third suc- cessive year — Ed.) " Romeo and Juliet " brought forth other memorable pieces of acting — Phyl ' s " Potion Scene, " Mai ' s incomparable " Tybalt " and Bob ' s " Queen Mab " speech. " Dinner At Eight " will long be an unforgettable experience, as we remember Porgy Miller ' s soft blonde hair and blue gown in strange contradiction to the hard-faced, raucous-voiced toughie she managed to portray so astonishingly. Noteworthy mention in " Lady Windermere ' s Fan " went to Plex ' s versatility in playing the part of a woman sufficiently old to have been her great-aunt and sufficiently well to have convinced us completely. Max became our May Queen and a more quietly serene or dignified one it would have been difficult to recall. Nor were we overly surprised that Elite Greene was crowned the Queen of our Junior Prom, since her loveliness had long since been taken for granted by us all. Millie and Stelle were members of her court, and they, plus the great amount of pulchritude that we like to think constitutes Emerson, made the Prom and the Parker House an unblemished memory. Constance Emily Glenna, our aesthetic red-head, gave us some of our most breath-taking moments that year, for not unlike Shakespeare, she wrote " laughing prose and lovely poetry. " Bet Costello confounded Dr. Parkhurst with such striking, almost brilliant arguments, in German third year class that the latter could only shake her head in puzzlement. We knew it was more of a smile than an admonition, though, as well as the luck of the Irish. It is impossible to see Lois Thompson ' s large expressive eyes without thinking of her Figaro ,the source of much of our happiest laughter, when the Pantomime class under Mrs. Levillain brought us a new version of the little story " Pinnochio. " The fun of the year is almost always concentrated in the melodrama, and the Juniors ' " Ticket of Leave Man " was no exception. Jack Reilly ' s stammering rogue, Bobby ' s " Cheer Up Cuthbert — You ' ll Soon Be Dead! " and June Glover ' s rendition of " The Doors Swing In And The Doors Swing Qut " kept Emerson in stitches until — again, we lost someone, but this time it was the whole nation ' s loss. President Roosevelt died, and we mourned along with the world . . . Page Fifty-Two Dexter pondered that as Seniors we had understood. The world is a constant succession of losses and gains, sometimes greater and sometimes smaller. We lost a president, and we hoped we had gained a peace. That peace had come while we were all in summer school. We walked through miles of paper V-J night and finally- exhausted, went into a Hayes-Bickford only to find that they had no food but prunes. We were quite hysterical with excitement, as Bobby kept saying, " Do you realize weTl never see another night like this again! " Yes, Dexter muttered to himself, we realized, for we were indeed advancing in wisdom and age, and life had already become as complex as Dr. McKinley had predicted. There were more changes: Presi- dent Ross retired after thirty-eight years at Emerson and the new President Green seemed extremely capable of carrying on successfully the immense job which lay ahead of him. BB Austin became our well-chosen Class President, for life as well as for the year, and Bee Dowd, kno-wn now anywhere from Beer to Bizarre, chiefly because she had surprised everyone by getting the part of " the bundle of rags " in the Broadway revival of " Pygmalion " which starred Gertrude Lawrence, became our Emersonian Editor-in-Chief. Boss, who had always been successful in monetary mat- ters, began her famous " contribute campaigns, " for the Yearbook, Hillel and Sigma Delta Chi. The new school building, 126, was officially opened at our Intra-Class Dance after much scrubbing, brushing and cleaning on the part of all Emerson students. The first ploy scheduled is " Proscenium, " he thought, and inaudibly, Dexter whispered a prayer for its success as well as for the venture once again into Shakespeare — this time, " Twelfth Night. " Somehow, we ' re not as fearful as we used to be, because now there is a certain assurance about us that could only stem from Emerson training. We know that these undertakings will go off well, for we have faith in the past and confi- dence in our abilities. And there are many things remaining before we must lecn e Emerson — the newly formed Literary Club under Bobby ' s guidance. Sneak Day, the Senior Ball and so on . . . Dexter sat in the smoker, feeling the hard bench at his back and watched the smoke from his cigarette follow its irrevocable pattern and mulled over the problem at hand. He was serious once again, though now the status was changed to that of Senior — and not just an ordinary Senior, but — president of Student Government. Dexter sat pondering the problems of tomorrow, while the smoke like lithe arms fell softly about his shoulders . . . Night, Faithful acolyte Of the dark blue cassock. Snuffs out the altar flares Of thought. BEATRICE DOWD Page Fifty-Three " O WAD SOME POW ' R THE GIFTIE GIE US Page Fifty-Four TO SEE OURSELS AS ITHERS SEE US!

ROBERT GUEST . NATALIE FISHER VIRGINIA DEMPSEY NANCY COPELAND Guest climbed upon the table in Room 15. crossed his legs before him Moslem fashion, ran his fingers absent-mindedly through his hair, and grinned upon us slyly. The Freshman Class had come into its own. We were probably very young that year — I don ' t remember. We were the dreamers of dreams; we were confident, we were sure, we were not well salted down. They hazed us, they helped us, they trimmed our sail, and gave us the sextant to plot our course We had our Intra-Class Dance at the Sheraton, and we gave a tea for the outgoing seniors that year — we set a precedent. Guest climbed again upon the table and hailed us for his friends. He was sly, he was witty, he was clever, and we unde rstood. If he were our navigator, v e were his crew. We had sailed well. Though the reefs had been many, we had not run aground. Our sophomore productions showed our progress. We had felt our way, we had grasped the technique. The Christmas party was crowned with spirit and fun. Thrice Guest has ascended the table. " What ' s it like? " , we ask him. " It ' s a head- ache, " he says, grinning and waving his hand. He means that as juniors we ' re well on the way. He means that our dreams are bigger and more numerous and that we know now how to work on making them come true.

Before, " tempus fugit " was only an empty phrase signifying the fears of our eiders. Now that we are beginning to grasp the actual meaning, we hope our honest effort to make every minute count will not be lost. Emerson ' s confidence in us will do much to speed us to our goal. It has bee n wonderful to hove become even a small segment in the life of Emerson, for in so doing, Emerson has grown to be an all-important part of our own lives. From the very beginning of Freshman Theatre Productions, right through to the much feared final exams, it has been wonderful. This year, too, has already hit a new high in our conducting of the Freshman hazing, and the plans we have made for the solving of the ever-present problem, the smoker. Since the beginning has been made well, our good faith established, and a sense of over-all unity achieved, we shall hope the faith of the upperclassmen and those expecting us to carry on will be justified. We will do all we can, for we believe firmly at last, that " tempus fugit " !

RUTH RIDEOUT Standing in the doorway of a new era in our lives, we, the Freshman Class, are proud to salute Emerson as our Alma Mater. To all other Emersonians we give our word that we shall try to make you equally as proud of our endeavors and accom- plishments. The new class of ' 49 got under way with the passing of " Hell Week, " proving that we were sporting enough to be considered on an equal footing with the upper- classmen. During our first class meeting, Freshman officers were elected to lead us in our coming activities. We were right in keeping with the times too, for Navy Veteran James Griffin became our earnest and sincere president. Our history lies in the future, and for the future we turn to you, Emerson, with all the hopes and aspirations in our hearts. Page Sixty PROSE AND POETRY " I shall never forget you; never escape your memory woven about the beautiful things of life.” IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS AN APPLE TREE The house where I was born stood on a hill, and from my bedroom window you could look off across the city to other hills — the foothills of the Berkshires. It was my grandfather ' s house, and at first I think I must have imagined that they were my grandfather ' s hills, but of course, they weren ' t, except for the little one in the back yard where the apple tree grew. The bedroom that 1 speak of faced the north and the street. It was a large room with high walls and dark panelling, and on the walls was the paper that had been sent for from France just before I was born. The paper was for me, but it was really my grandfather ' s paper, covered with huge aristocratic red and blue peacocks, much too stiff and pompous for a child. I am sure my grand- father loved me — looking back 1 can remember the little things, the ways he tried to show me, but it was different then. At first I was only afraid of him. He was a brusque and busy man, distinguished-looking , and a little foreboding, too stubborn and too arrogant to ever have many friends. 1 remember Wednesdays very clearly in those days-— the Rotary Club met, and my grandfather didn ' t come home to lunch. It meant that 1 could talk at table, and later, play some very noisy game like " Ollie, Ollie Infree " with the little girl who lived at the bottom of the hill. On other days. Grandfather served, and 1 sat very quietly, not eating very much because I was never hungry, and listening very hard to everything Grandfather said, because he liked to have people listen. Once he had excused himself from the table to go upstairs for his afternoon nap in the library, Grandma would give me a red and white striped peppermint, and I would go out to suck on it under the apple tree, where I could sail leaves in the bird bath. Grand- father and I were very proud of the apple tree. Grandfather particularly — he had planted it there when the house was first built — a fine, strong McIntosh tree, that threw a lot of shade. Towards early fall, I used to like to reach up and pick an apple while I sat there in the afternoon, though not at any other time, because Grandfather v ould hove seen me, and he never let me pick the apples. I think he was afraid that I might pull a branch down too far, and strain the limb. The apples were good, juicy, smooth and cool and they tasted tart with the tong of the peppermint still in my mouth. Later on in the year after the leaves had fallen, and Grandfather had raked them up into a pile for burning, I liked to jump in them, to go diving down into the red and gold and brown, and then listen to t hem crackle as I squirmed my way up and shook them off. I used to let out a long piercing squeal with every jump, until Grandfather came out himself one day to stop it. I didn ' t go to the apple tree again until early the next spring. Sometimes in the evening, I was allowed to sit in the living room for an hour before I was sent to bed. It was then, that Grandfather told about the place in England where he had lived v hen he was a boy, and once when I went to his chair to kiss him goodnight, he told me to dream about butterflies and daisies, but it was such a strange thing for him to say, that it frightened me a little. The year I turned ten. Grandfather began to graft other apples onto the tree; it was also the year that he and my father quarreled. I don ' t think that I was afraid of him after that. I remember waking up one night when they had forgotten to close my door. I could hear their voices, low and sharp, and I crept to the top of the stairs to hear what they were saying. It was something about money, and my grand- father was very angry. He kept using the word " in-laws, " and in some vague way, I realized that he was blaming my mother. I didn ' t stay to hear the rest of it, I knew Page Sixty-Two I had already heard something that I was never intended to hear. Alter I had crawled back into bed a big lump whelmed up slowly in my throat. Grandfather didn ' t like us — he didn ' t like Mommie, and Mornmie was part of us, the gay, gentle part. And then, ever so little at first, 1 began to hate him. Nothing was ever said to me about that night, but things changed after that. Grandma looked unhappy, and once when she found me sitting under the apple tree, she told me that my grandfather was a very headstrong man, and I knew it must be hard for her, because she loved him. Then, the rest of the family stopped coming to my grandfather ' s house on weekends, and he went to bed early, and didn ' t talk very much. The apples went sour on the tree that year, and my grandfather went sour too. It seemed as if neither of them could stand the grafting. With the tree, it was a different kind of apple, with my grandfather, it was a different sort of person. We moved away from my grandfather ' s house that year, and 1 think that he was glad to have us go. This summer we went back again. Grandfather has been sick, and Grandma isn ' t there to take care of him anymore. No one said they were sorry — we just went back. I don ' t think that Grandfather cares about things much. The apple tree blew down in the storm the other night, and when I told him about it the next morning, he just lifted one eyebrow slightly and nodded his head. JOANNE BLACK, Junior MY CREATION I ' d love to be an actress. To be behind the scenes To laugh and love and live a life Of which one only dreams. To know the great excitement Of, " Curtain Going Up! " The work, the practice, and the play — Would be the honey in my cup. Oh, to go upon the stage. If only to pretend To live the life I ' ll never have — Would be a thousand lives again! RUTH RIDEOUT, Freshman Page Sixty-Three BEST SELLER Once there was a young writer who sat on a bench in the park and said, " Now, I will see life. " A woman walked by and looked at him. Her eyes were dark ana her face heavily rouged. She was a prostitute. " This is a part of it, " he said. " I will put it in my book. " Soon a soldier walked by with his wife and child. They were Negroes. The soldier was singing. " This is a part of it, " the writer said. " I will put it in my book. " A drunk reeled by, uncertainly, and stopped to ask a passer-by for a dime. This, too, is a part of it, " the writer said. And there were many others who passed that day — a young mechanic with soiled overalls and grease on his face, a tall woman with furs who looked neither to the left nor right. The young writer rose. " Now I have seen life, " he said. " I will put it all in my book. I will write a great novel. " And so the book was written; it was published; and it was sold. The people bought the book. The people who lived shut up in their square brownstone worlds bought the book. They read it, but they did not understand. They were too far away from it to understand. The people bought the book. The people in the smoke-covered dirty houses bought the book — the drunk, the prostitute. They read it, but they did not understand. They were too close to it to understand. And years later the writer read his book again. " It was not good, " he said. " Now I am not sure that even I can understand. " And he tore the pages from the book and threw them into the gutter. The little rivers of rain sopped into them, and the print faded. The sun shone on them and made them brown and stiff. The people walked on them. And they became a part of the street. LAMENT THE STORY OF A DAISY In a field, beneath a tree, I was sad and so alone. They were all in bloom but me. And I was still half-grown. At last, I was a daisy grown. This made me lurn quite bold. My blossoms were the fairest; I was lovely to behold. All day long I wailed and sighed. And I was sad indeed, ' Till suddenly I had a thought — " It ' s vitamins I need! " I was very proud of me, I held my head up high, I ignored my relatives. And spoke only with the sky. So I started taking sunshine pills And drops of sparkling dew. I guess this diet agreed with me For heavens, how I grew! But alas, my pride is at an end. For soon I ' ll be quite dead. A yellow cow just wandeied by — And nibbled off my head! RACHEL KEYES, Sophomore Page Sixty-Four FILAGREE Tendrils of the wild grape, strange, searching fingers; Pale network on petals of the v hite iris; Bright tracery of ice crystals on gray flagstones; Melody of slender oboes woven through high flute-notes; Colour of the moon on little ruffled waves; O wordless prayer of a sylph incarnate in firm silver; Filagree, in my hand! DEPARTURE Awareness of your going fell Like silence, difficult to tell; And like the slight yet certain shock One feels wit h the stopping of a clock, 1 realized the sudden loosing of your touch Then say 1 should not grieve so much, But here at the last is more than pain. For one may start a clock again. BEATRICE DOWD JIGSAW PUZZLE To those quick, jumpy, nearsighted eyes, the picture seemed a masterpiece of perfection. It couldn ' t be an easy task picking, choosing, placing those pieces of every credible size, every incredible shape. There was a child-like eagerness, though, to see a pretty coloured picture, so it had been accomplished swiftly. It didn ' t matter that the sun was black, and the earth was red and the little purple people were standing on their heads. Tomorrow v ould see it ready to be built again, and if the next hands were as reckless, there would at last come eyes not blind. For time was endless and the pieces were made of steel. MILDRED SCHWARTZ Page Sixty-Five SUMMER RAIN The crowded clothesline cast a slanted shadow on the ground. It was late after- noon, and the wind had given up its argument v ith the clothes long ago, leaving them motionless like a string of paper cut-outs. Apparently, the law of gravity was working overtime, for the air weighed down upon the earth, and the world moved, if it moved at all, with great effort. Slamming doors cracked noisily in the heat, and tired voices calling to children turned to moans as they drifted in an arc toward the ground. Occasionally, the squeak of bicycle tires from over the hill announced the return home of a hungry boy. The rubber tires almost stuck to the macadam which was slowly trickling away into the ditch. The grass wilted, and flowers drooped in pain. No spund, no breath broke the stillness. High overhead, dirty clouds massed, waiting for the signal to blot out the sun. The sun was fighting desperately to control the earth until it had to seek new lands to shine upon. Then, there was a sudden burst of activity in the streets Red buses labored to a stop to expel weary business men who scattered on the sweltering roads. Each set his own pace, created his own breeze, and kept within his space. Most carried smudgy newspapers. Their hats were balanced on the backs of their heads like sailors ' , and there was a slight give-way to their whole appearance. They van ished into the solid houses without leaving so much as an echo on the air. As the earth ' s silence increased, the sky ' s activity also grew. The clouds raced across the heavens in orderly confusion. A serene wind brushed the treetops, but was afraid to come nearer the static objects on the ground. A great shadow fell over the earth. Time stopped for a moment, just a moment. And it began to rain. SUMMER NIGHTS Summer nights are sad. All nature shrinks in cowardice before The melancholy summons of the dusk, Paving the way for night To send high spirits Rocketing earthward. From the distant fields The sobbing songs of crickets warn all souls To venture not abroad, while from the ground Frightening waves of cold Stab at warm bodies And melt into tears. The world pretends indifference. Seeks sleep, and prays for morning. PATRICIA MAXWELL Page Sixty-Six THE UNBROKEN CYCLE The brook was only a stream, a tiny stream flowing down a mossy embankment to a distant pond. Every day I saw it us I passed in the commuting train above the slope. The first time was in winter — one of those winter days when spring seems to be pressing against her tomb and begs to be remembered and released. 1 could hear spring that day, in the voice of the stream as it played upon the ice. It was that day I met Michael, Michael with such a strange life behind him and so much to give, more than anyone I had ever known. We gave of each other unrestrainedly, gave of our thoughts, our time, our ideas, our companionship. The mornents we thought of the future and the restrictions which time would only increase, were few, and those few times were fraught with a rosy-eyed idealism which was an inherent part of our relationship. Spring pressed the earth more strongly one day and found herself free. The brook turmoiled itself into a waterfall and broke into pinwheels of silver. With the summer, came the realization that " forsaking all others " was a phrase which called for more than mutual agreement. It was a phrase which in our circum- stances must become rigid reality. Much of the brook v as buried by summer green, and occasional fog threw its wistfulness over the scene and gave it all a chilling sense of unreality. The brook had become a symbol now. It had appeared to me only on the day I had met Michael. The stream had been for me an awakening, a rebirth, which encompassed many forms and many changes, but an awakening whose life would be constant, for the beginning was the stream and the stream was the incarnation of spring. The fall passed and the late fall. Winter came. Michael and I were waiting for my train when the snow began to fall, softly and murmuringly. We had both realized the futility of continuing our companionship. We were both seeking what we termed " complete happiness, " a vague but perhaps, nonetheless, a possible thing. This was the day we had chosen as an ending. As the whirr of the train came to our ears, I think each of us knew it was not only an ending, but another beginning. I left him there with the snow falling white against his faintly greying hair . . . As I passed the stream I could hear spring calling for another awakening from her depths within the earth. As I listened to the train wheels I remembered another year when spring had pressed at the heart of the earth, and called to me from the voice of the stream. CONSTANCE WHITE Tumult A leaf On the tree rustled and the crystal silence Was shattered. BEATRICE DOWD Page Sixty-Seven BLUE Somewhere a clock strikes five, ushering in my blue hour. Like the intimate- voiced girls, molded into gowns that are as dazzling as the world through rain- sprinkled glass, who whisper over and over, " low-down, good for nothin ' , blue. " Like those singers, hedged in by confusion, yet withdrawn, is this hour. It doesn ' t belong to me, personally, because I have come to recognize its bewitching qualities on others and look upon them as Conrad did his Secret Sharer. I suspect it in the single lighted window at the top of a brownstone house. 1 see it in the dreamy eyes of a boy crouched before a fireplace. The young woman posed in the corner of a cocktail lounge knows of it, and the salesman, impatiently waiting for his last slow customers to leave, senses the time. It comes every day precisely at five, although the spell it casts varies in intensity. Perhaps it comes at five A. M., too, but I ' ve been too sleepy to notice the few times I ' ve been abroad that early. The blueness softens reality, until the events of the hour are one degree out of focus. The traffic goes swirling by. Maybe I rush, too, but inside me, the steady, pulsing rhythm of the blues begins, and I fall into its beat. Although five o ' clock may be gray in autumn and gold in spring, still it is always blue. And it is lonely. It is as far away from the pavement as a street light and as self-contained as the pale splash of the bulb. To voluntarily approach its sphere is the only way to come under its influence. It spins its magic undisturbed. I find the remoteness of its glow warm enough to take the chill off whining voices, brittle noises, and agitated music. It is a b lue interlude between the outspoken green of afternoon and the smothering purple of evening, fading imperceptibly from one to the other. Somewhere a clock strikes six, and my blue hour is gone. PATRICIA MAXWELL Resignation Today I looked on love And wondered why — It had to die. I saw life ' s etching Written on my face — Time leaves its trace. And life to me seemed Suddenly so strange — But all things change. I looked upon the world. Fully aware — It was not fair. Today I said, " All this I now accept. " Wretched, I wept. BEATRICE DOWD Page Sixty-Eight Time, is it only time, Or love caught through the fingers of a tiny year. Or a lifetime lived within a minute. Or glances holding hours of meaning memory? A chime, is it just a chime. Or dreams of pixies swinging on the clappers Or sound that weaves a silver scale to heaven From the soaring steeple spire? A gull, is it just a gull. Or loneliness that calls and calls to loneliness And greyness at the false dawn of the morn. Or thoughts that wheel and wheel and never come to rest? I wish 1 were a poet to see the unseen, A poet to hear the unheard A poet to bring the unseen and the unheard to the world. CONSTANCE WHITE I Dead? No, not as final as that — Not as final as his death. Only dead to laughter. Dead to the caress of a warm spring breeze. Dead to the tender passion of a kiss. And dead to the strength of knowing another soul. Living? If breath means life — I live. II A hollow shell, with faint lingering echo Of what once possessed it; cold surface Wherein lies no hope, just hardness. The bravado of the lost.

Grouped about the round table, the class representatives laid plans for the first venture of the year. They hoped it would turn out all right, this traditional welcome tea for the freshmen and ' 45 ' s added attraction. Dr. Green. The president’s gavel came down with a slight hesitancy, and the meeting was adjourned so that the people at the table might swing into action. At the next meeting there was a more confident thud to the bang of the gavel. The tea had been a success, and the new Emersonians were well on their way to a congenial integration with the old crowd. The business at hand required a different technique from that of the tea. This time. Student Government had decided to remodel 126 Beacon Street. After three hectic weeks spent in the company of paint brushes, stepladders, floormops, and draperies, the college could point proudly to its own ballroom. Never was an Intra-Class Dance more enthusiastically received. The gavel now fits the hand of the president well. This year, smoothly begun, shows promise of rising steadily to an enviable climax under the leadership of Student Government.

Archbishop Cushing was there to bless the building and to speak to us about Cardinal Newman, after which we were able to meet and talk with the former bishop. Refreshments v ere served and dancing followed in the recreation room. Since the grand opening of the Centre, regular meetings have been held and plans for the future have been made. January 6th, 7th, and 8th are the next events on our calendar. A gala weekend at the Eastern Slope Inn, North Conv ay, is in store for us then, and will be sponsored by the New England Province of Catholic Clubs. The Federal Convention is to be held on the 25th, 27th, and 28th of April, and it promises to be one of the biggest undertakings of the season. The Club Centre is open at all times and is a place where Catholics from any of the neighboring Boston schools can gather for lectures by the Paulist Fathers, who maintain the Centre for general discussions, dancing, and an all-around good time.

Dungarees, and Thorne Smith, rolled beef sandwiches, and cigarette smoke. I thought about a book called " This Is My Beloved, " and Kiki, Libby, Betty Ann, Evie, and Cuyler — those who understood. I thought about proctoring exams, and leaning out of the window to hiss Curley ' s Build Boston Band-Wagon careening by. I thought about weekends in upper New York State, dinner parties at the Fox and Hounds, and lying in front of a blazing fire in the Sheehan ' s library overlooking the Charles, stuffed full of turkey and listening to Chopin. I thought about Toy Theatre — stepladders, foot- lights, blood, sweat and tears. I thought about Christmas and our socks hanging in a row. " We are sisters, " I said. " Golden We Are!

Freedman. The principal objective, of the foundation is to perpetuate Jewish fraternity, such a broad declaration being expanded locally into committees furthering culture, Zion- ism, social contacts, journalism, and the like, toward which end Emerson is playing an increasingly greater role. With not a little trepidation, we too now set out on the new roads laid down by the high Hillel ideals, hoping to bypass the detours which threaten our ultimate success.
