President Emeritus Harry Seymour Ross 1868-1948 The Forty-niner EMERSONIAN Yearbook of Emerson College B O S T O N JUNE, 1949 Chenery House On October 1, 1948 Dr. and Mrs. Boylston Green and son Halcott moved into Chenery House, the official residence of the College President at 3 77 Commonwealth Avenue. Acquisition of the new home was made possible by the benevolence of Dr. and Mrs. William E. Chenery. When properly equipped, the first floor will be reserved for College functions. 4 Foreword " You are young, and have the world before you; Stoop you go through it, and you will miss many hard thumps.” Cotton Mather s advice to Benjamin Franklin Because Because you taught us the glory that is our dramatic heritage: We laughed with Sir Toby , marvelled with Falstaff, sorrowed with Hamlet; and under your expert guidance, slowly we came to know, to appreciate, to love theater. The theater of yesterday; The theater of today. The hope that is theater tomorrow. Because of your ability to understand and transmit the human elements of a play and make them sure within the individual philosophies of your students. Because you inspire the spark deep inside that is called aesthetic. Because you are kindly and gracious, because your humor is gentle and infectious — because we love you — Because we believe you are the embodiment of the Emersonian Ideal we dedicate the forty-niner Emersonian to JRuih axftdh Yearbook Staff Editor-in-Chief Walter Stelkovis Associate Editor Literary Editor Jane Young Robert Conlon Business Manager Lloyd Sherman Advertising Doris Hartley Henry Gilbert Barbara Morse Non-Graduates Ann Skenian Gloria Glagovsky Faculty Advisor Dr. Richard Pierce Drama Terry Shuman T reasurer Leo Nickole Photography Frances Flaherty Helen Chaiken 8 There is particular significance in the year 1949 to William Howland Kenney, as well as to the graduating class. Forty-nine represents the number of years that Mr. Kenney has been a faculty member here. He came to Emerson in May, 1900 and has taught con- tinuously, except for two and a half years during World War I. Physically fit, but over age for the American Army, he joined the American Field Service as a front-line ambulance driver attached to the 120th Division of the French 2d Army. His heroic efforts were rewarded by the presentation of the Croix de Guerre. Before coming to Emerson, Mr. Kenney had studied under leading voice teachers in Boston, New York, London, Paris and Dresden. He had also established a reputation as a professional singer and toured the country in this capacity. His speech work has proved invaluable to countless Emer- sonians. Forty-nine years devoted to improving voices and aid in strengthening individual philosophies merits our sincere thanks to a grand man. 9 Administration Trusten Russell Dean Harold R.

Graduates Senior Class Officers History of the ’4 gers " Show some life, worm!” We were born anew. In motley ribbons, Freshmen F’s and our clothes inside out, we were hazed. Life had been breathed into us by the glorious and most exalted members of the class of 1948. Then we became Emersonians. We learned our schedules and with the aid of Dr. McKinley’s orientation course, things were made easier for us. We had achieved smoothness. We took in stride the Inter-Class Dance, Flour Exams, Christmas vacation and mid-years when suddenly ... 14 The volume of students increases. Over half a hundred joined our ranks as Freshmen. At first, these January newcomers held aloof from us and our peaceful existence, but soon the ele- ments were formed. At the Commencement exercises of the class of forty-six, we sat together, our class of forty-nine. The time slid so quickly. We were sophomores. Our first slide was hazing the freshmen. Admittedly, the best hazing job in many years. Then slide in volume. We instituted a new activity, which we hoped would become traditional at the college and give our successors a living thing, the Sophomore Tea to the faculty. The faculty had now grown from twenty-two to thirty-two members. Our numbers decreased. Weddings, job circumstances, trans- fers, and even death had reduced our numbers. At a second commencement we sat together and thought of many things — even ourselves in caps and gowns! Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? What is our author’s intent and how can we more stead- fastly pursue that intent? Those were the questions which we pondered as juniors. We realize now why Mr. Connor said that Literary Analysis was the second most important step in the Evolution of Expression. We began to major in radio, speech, drama, English, social science, speech theraphy and education. We were juniors and had passed the half way mark. The juniors entertained at the Parker House and the whole college played homage to our lovely Prom Queen, Ruth Roblin. Our vitalized pictures. Rita Kramer being crowned as our charm- ing May Queen, The Junior Melodrama, One-twenty-six a spic and span lecture building instead of a scenery storehouse, The passing of Mr. Shaw and Dean Ross, which gave not disappoint- ment, but courage to those who had known and loved them, and of course the victories of our first in the history of the college, baseball and basketball teams. We paused, the ellipse. Emerson had changed for the better. True there were grumblings from some students and the old alumni but that was really the rumble of growth. We the student body had grown and the college responded and grew with us. Finals again. Another graduation and in the class were six men. In the academic procession were almost fifty faculty mem- bers. The college motto became more coherent, " No evolution 15 without Expression.” We understood the ratio of values and saw the parts fitting together, forming the whole. Our taste was developing to a finer degree. We had dedi- cated our year book to Mrs. Ruth Southwick Maxfield. Physical improvements on the college grounds continued to please us. Finally came the wearing of caps and gowns. The humility and dignity of the traditional student’s garb. Then Commence- ment in the Old South Church. Mr. Kenney calling our names in a low, full tone. Miss Riddell and our beloved " Joe” Connor in the academic procession. We felt magnaminity of atmosphere. We felt the effect of Dr. Emerson and his teachings half a century after his death. Our history is not yet complete. Our period of creation will extend far into the future. Great things will be done by us. Some may even achieve the transitory reward of fame. We will marry and have children, age, and eventually die. We will not leave a part of ourselves at Emerson, instead we will carry with us a part of Emerson as long as we live. We will be obedient to our ideals and to the ideals of the college. " For of the soul the body form doth take. For soul is form and doth the body make.” 16 Most Distinguished Member of the Class of ’49 In 1945 Emerson College greeted a new president. We of the graduating class were then freshmen, proud freshmen, proud because the new president constantly and enthusiastically referred to himself as a member of our infant class. Four years later we are still proud. We look forward with a certain feeling of security, for we know that we leave Emerson in good hands. Students of Emerson, to you the forty-niners leave their Most Distinguished Member — Dr. Boylston P. Green! 17 BARBARA JANE BROWN " Bobbie” A.B., English, was born April 15, 1927, in Corry, Pennsylvania.

Active members now totaled 18 . We inducted such new honoraries as Professor Merlino, Dr. Knickerbocker, Mr. Brotherton, and Larry Brooks, who had starred in " Song of Norway.” Our fourth annual dance and entertainment provided an evening of fun for all who attended. At the Greek Letter Dance we ushered in our own version of Santa Claus with a song called " Here Comes Santa Claus.” Alpha Pi Theta 69 Phi Alpha Tau In keeping with a half-century tradition of presenting the finest in Speech Arts, Phi Alpha Tau opened its season with the annual Halloween Dance. The fraternity was well-represented at the Greek Letter Dance, where they presented an original arrangement of a Christmas song. An excellent production of the farce comedy, Three Men On a Horse , was presented. The Grover C. Shaw Memorial Speech Festival was the high point of the second semester. A successful year was concluded with the third annual " Rancho Pat.” 70 The latest, but not the least of the Emerson fraternal organi- zations. Rho Delta is a professional radio fraternity, the first of its kind here. It has added much to the college and we hope our Spring Dance will become an annual affair. Our 18 members are led by President Warren Wright, Vice- President John Weir, Secretary James Collins and Treasurer Edward Hassett. Rho Delta Omega 71 Kappa Gamma Chi When Kappa Gamma Chi chalked up another musical hit with IPs a Privilege this Spring, it just added to its past suc- cesses, including Past, Present and Perfect and Watch Your Language. To close his year, Father Owl presided over an alumnae tea, thinking how wonderful it was to meet old sisters. Ellen Ades was President; Ruth Rideout, Vice-President; Barbara Morse, Secretary; Mary Jean Birmingham, Treasurer. 72 Phi Mu Gamma " Here Hearts entwine, Here sisterhood shines.” With us, the black, gold and blue always shines true and bright, but this year, our Golden Jubilee has added an extra glow in the heart of each Alpha. With our purpose, " The intelligent advancement of the fine arts,” as an incentive, Alpha marches on, sustaining and upholding the Fiske Foundation. Above all, we have a smile in one hand, and a box of happi- ness in the other . . . 73 Sigma Delta Chi There is a spirit in Sigma Delta Chi: the spirit of coopera- tion and friendliness, the desire to make the name of Emerson shine. This year we again held our annual hayride. Many Emer- sonians and friends piled into haywagons, sang and laughed, and toasted franks galore. The Sigma 373 Nite Club was also a huge success. Authen- tic atmosphere, good food, and good company made this a high- light on the Emerson social schedule. 74 " When day is done We return To the friends That we all Love so well We are happy to be In Zeta Phi ” Taps Z eta Phi Eta 75 Hillel Courtselorship This year Hillel got a home! Hillel House, 232 Bay State Road, was purchased as a cultural and recreational nucleus of all Boston Hillel Societies. Under our inter-faith lecture program members of all faiths have broadened our understanding of modern religion. A series of classical motion pictures, presented to the entire student body, has traced the development of the cinema from the days of the silent movie. Newman Club In December, one hundred orphans were entertained at a Christmas party in the college buildings. We intend to make this an annual affair and are planning a series of entertainments for under-privileged children. Berkeley Beacon The Berkeley Beacon has had another successful season of publication. Bunny Ades, the editor, aided by a competent staff kept the student newspaper functioning on a high level. The bi-weekly became larger in size and was printed on a slicker type of paper. New sections were added and the student body received them with favor. 78 Emerson Radio Service Our staff this year included 15 announcers and 20 technicians. We were on the air 6 mornings and 5 afternoons per week and on Tuesdays and Thursdays we even broadcast from 12:15 to 12:45 with a program of luncheon music. Organized on the same basis as any professional station, we turned out programs featuring popular and classical music, dramas, both live and recorded, news, sports and variety shows. Our newest addition included studio piano recitals and vocal artists picked from the student body. 79 Student Government Council Largely due to the efforts of the council, Emerson today holds greater educational prestige than was dreamed of a few years ago. Close integration of administration, faculty, and students, and pro- motion of good-will between students have been two major ideals. The results may be seen in the forming of an Athletic Asso- ciation and the coming Honor System. Our work with the UNUSA, begun last year, has continued; the college has been designated as the center of a film-lending plan. We are achieving our main goal: to put Emerson on the map! 80 The Choir The four year old Emerson Choir has come to be one of the outstanding college organizations. We sing at chapel services every Thursday morning. Our presentations at the Founder’s Day Exercises and the Commencement Exercises are becoming annual events. Our outstanding specialty of the year was our Christmas songfest presented over Station WBMS on Christmas morning. 81 The Relapse or Virtue In Danger The Drama Department The Emerson College Drama Workshop, under the direction of Mrs. Gertrude Binley Kay, has become an institution of which the students are justifiably proud. During each term the theatre houses the finest of comparative drama, experimental and arena theatre. In 1946 the department was augmented by Miss Patricia Havens, outstanding young costume designer, and Mr. Francis Mahard, a versatile scenic designer. The combined efforts of these people have resulted in productions of professional calibre in Col- lege Little Theatre. Mr. Albert Cohn joined the Department in 1947 as director of the Freshman and Sophomore Groups. His capable handling has turned out commendable work in arena theatre for the under- classmen. 83 1947-1948 — The Junior Laboratory Group in the annual melodr ama — In Mizzoura In Mizzoura 1947-1948 — A group from the Junior Laboratory arena production of — First Lady 1947-1948 — The Advanced Theatre Group in the rollicking farce — The Inspector General 1948-1949 — The Senior Comparative Drama Group in Shakespeare ' s — The Merry Wives of Windsor 1946-1949 — The Senior Comparative Drama Group in Shakespeare’s — The Merry 1947-1948 — A grouping from the Advanced Theatre production of — A Blot on The ’Scutcheon Rehearsal shot of the Senior Comparative Drama Group 1948-49 Dodie Dodie was a bitch. Everyone said she was. She had too much money, too many brains, and she was too pretty. Aunt Helen, Dodie’s mother, would shake her bleached curls and flutter helplessly at Dodie’s tantrums. " Honestly Lucy,” she would say to my mother, " I don’t know what to do with her. She’s the limit. I ought to marry again. She needs someone who can smack her down.” I first remember my cousin as a fat girl with pimples, Dutch haircut, a red leather jacket, and an evil, toothy grin, sitting on the footstool in our Chicago apartment and spouting Pig Latin. She spelled things out so that my brother and I wouldn’t understand what she was saying. We hated her then. She would call mommy " Sis” and switch candy from one hand to ano ther, holding it up high so we couldn’t get at it. Then she would laugh with all her might and say, " Sis, Sis, Sis,” over and over again to make us cry. Sometimes we liked Dodie because when Mommy wasn’t home she would come and take us for walks and buy us things we weren’t supposed to have and take us places that my mother wouldn’t let us go to. She was always laughing that wild, taunting laugh. The only time I remember Dodie being serious was when Aunt Helen married again. My brother and I were very young and we had to just sit quietly and watch, but Dodie got to be flower girl. She walked slowly with a big pink bow in her hair and the tears stood out in her eyes. Right after the wedding we moved to the country: my Aunt, my new Uncle, Mommy and Daddy, Peter and I, and Dodie. We lived right next door to each other, and every day Mommy would walk next door to comfort " Poor Helen.” Dodie couldn’t stay in one school very long. She snubbed the girls and demoralized the little boys with her dirty jokes. Her inheritance money began to come in, and she had her closets filled with evening dresses she never wore and hobbies which she never kept up. Boys loved Dodie. She was alway gay and her talk made 92 you laugh. Boys, boys, boys. There was Bud Binkly with his maroon convertible and his trips to Europe. Dodie almost married him. Archie Jones was sweet and shy. Dodie hurt him. There were others, too. Summer days she would sit in the yard and talk to " Sis” about how she was going to marry Bob or Archie or Dick or whoever the boy happened to be at the time. Then she would list just what she expected from everyone as a wedding present. I had a doll called " Dopey.” He was the kind you could put your hand in to make him wiggle. Dodie took it from me one day and said, " You aren’t old enough to have fun with this. You don’t really appreciate it.” Then she ran away. Once a month Dodie’s inheritance check would come. We would go to Lake Forest in her red convertible and she would buy me clothes and sodas and introduce me to her friends. I used to sit and eat ice cream while Dodie and her friends talked in low voices and spelled things. I never understood why she liked to have a ten year old girl around when she met her beaus. But there were many things I couldn’t figure out about Dodie. Twice a year she would clean out her closets and over she would come, piled high with dresses, coats, and games, which she had bought, but never used. I would try them all on and pray for the day when I would be big enough to wear them. Then Dodie met Johnny. He was a little fellow, an ex-Golden Glover, shy and quiet. I would go with her to meet him. One day I sipped a chocolate soda, and Johnny and she held hands and talked. Johnny teasingly asked me about Dodie’s other beaus. I told him about Bud Binkly, and that Dodie had planned to marry him. I talked about Archie and the dozens of others. We drove home in silence after leaving Johnny. Dodie left me off at my house and said she never wanted to look at my face again. Then she slapped me. I cried all afternoon, right up to the time of my piano recital. I prayed and prayed, " Help Dodie not to be mad at me, and make me able to get through the last part of ' Wooden Shoes,’ Amen.” Dodie married Johnny. " They act like two kids playing house,” said Daddy. " The only reason she’s marrying him is because she can order him around.” " She’s a damn fool!” said her stepfather. They’re both damn fools!” Everyone got roaring drunk at the wedding, and they teased Dodie unmercifully about her changing to the Catholic religion. 93 Someone gave her a fake rosary with hard candy for beads. She laughed that hard, taunting laugh, but the tears stood out in her eyes, just like I’d seen them before. Dodie and Johnny have two children now. She still sends clothes over, and promises to take me to meet stage celebrities. She still promises to haul me off and tell me the facts of lif e, " the right way.” Dodie doesn’t come over for our Christmases any more though. " Johnny’s family always keep the good old fash- ioned Christmas,” she said, " And that’s what I want my kids to have.” But she does come once in a while to ride the horses, and she still wants the biggest, prettiest one, and two or three people to watch her. She is thinner now, and her eyes are lined, but she still chases people over furniture and flirts with all the young men and tells everyone what she wants for her birthday and anniversary presents and slaps people and smashes cars. She’ll always be a bitch and a gimme, gimme girl, they say. But I always think of Dodie holding up a new dress to see if it was the right color for me, and I’ll remember her on Christ- mas Eve, harmonizing with Daddy on the old carols, her nostrils wide, and quivering, the way they do when she sings, and her eyes looking through the cigraette smoke, faraway.

Paul LaBossiere The recent slight miscalculations of the poll takers were soon forgotten by the majority of the American public. Emersonians, being forgiving souls, decided to give them just one more chance. An inquisitive individual began to cull the campus minds and came up with the following incomplete information: Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink Alka Seltzer 29% Bromo Seltzer 29% None 41% Nepenthe 1% Favorite Food Any 97% B1 Vitamins 1% Spam 2% 97 Favorite Indoor Sport Football 1% Eating 18% Inspecting drawings 81% Hypnotism 81% Easiest Course Nuclear Physics (held in the Science Building, just north of the athletic held) . It was also found that 98% of the Emersonians’ most har- rowing experience was drawing books out of the BPL; The other 2% felt that it was reading books. It would be well to explain here why the poll is incomplete. It seems that our poll taker was being shown the intricate workings of a weapon used by the Rifle Team. I’m not sure just what did happen, but I picked up some scraps of paper from a crater and when I pieced them together, the foregoing resulted.

Darkness With quick, sure st eps, unusual for his twisted form, he entered the church through the vestry door, but as his searching eyes found the altar in the blended blue-gray of dawn, he faltered, and stopped. The vibrant, living richness that had always made him shield his eyes and then reaccustom them to the sight, was muted, and the altar appeared covered with a mysterious shroud. Collecting himself, he walked slowly down the center aisle, de- vouring all he saw with his eyes as one painting an indelible picture on his mind. " I’ll never forget it as it is now. So beauti- ful, a haven for everyone. My haven . . . my altar . . . my church . . . my church . . . my church,” his sobs broke the silence, and he fell to his knees before the image of Christ. In the mist inside the church, Joseph’s shaking form was hardly visible. For some minutes, his sobs broken only by inaudi- ble mutterings, he knelt, his mind as racked with thoughts as his body was with sobs. " I must leave . . . there is no place here for 98 me now. Dear God, why has my life been haunted by those words? No place for me here . . . no place for me here. Where is my place? I’m so tired.” He lifted his head and his eyes wandered. " Three years I loved my home here. Three years I really be- longed somewhere and felt needed. Father Darrow said much of the beauty of the church comes from my work.” And, ironically, in the midst of his heartbreak, a smile lighted his face for a moment as he recalled the reaction Father Darrow had had to his strange habit. " Joseph, I’ve been finding these notes, written in your hand, a t odd places on the grounds and in the church. What are they for?” " I beg your pardon, Father, if I’ve done wrong. They’re just my reminders. I’m not so young, as you can see, and my memory ain’t so sharp. When things need fixing, they need it right away, not after there’s trouble because of them. The notes keep me on my toes for repairs.” Joseph remembered a smile had crossed the Priest’s face and he had felt reassured. Through his mind were flashing cherished memories. The blooming magnificence of the first Easter garden he had planted. The sincere appreciation of his work by all made his heart sing with pride. Joseph had been proud because only effort was, when an effort had been made and he had worked hard for his church, his priest and his congregation. Were they unusual? the Church, only in the sense that it had a massive chandelier, a masterpiece of crystal and grill-work, in which Joseph took particular pride. In his years of service he developed quite an art in having it glisten when only a famt glimmer of light shone through the windows. Joseph now looked up at it as he thought. It was barely visible with the mist swirling around. Was Father Darrow unusual? No. Just a man of wis- dom, faith and understanding that made him part of the life around him. An unusual congregation? Perhaps, perhaps the constant increase of its size and its amazing generosity made it unusual. They belonged to the church, and so did Joseph, and they re- spected him. Involuntarily a shiver passed down his back and his eyes clouded.. He remembered the ugliness that had shattered his world. Father Darrow’s young assistant! 99 " Do not refer to this glorious house of God as your Church. It is greedy and revolting. You are only the janitor, nothing more!” The priest, with the callousness of youth had despoiled Joseph of his sense of belonging, the only thing on earth that mattered to him. At the sound of these words Joseph had had the urge to flee as he had done in the past. He sought the refuge of his room, his garden . . . and in prayer. Nothing suf- ficed. Would the picture of a dinner satisfy a hungry man? He must run away. It would be harder this time than before. Joseph moved, realizing where he was, disturbed by those thoughts. He had wandered all night through the city and he made his decision, Why should he endure scorn that would be hurled at him? His body quivered with cold, and he rose to his feet. Stiff- ness made his limbs ache as he walked onto the altar unaware Father Darrow was watching from the vestry door unconscious of anything unusual. Joseph saw that the sun was now pouring through the windows and whatever its beams caught become alive with color. " I will take something with me . . . Why not? If this is God’s house surely he can replace whatever I take. I’ll hide in the city, they’ll never find me!” Wild thoughts, wild eyes! Not a sound in the ghostly stillness of the church. His hand caught a golden chalice. He stood in utter silence, frightened, guilty, feeling eyes riveted upon him and felt as if those cold, unseen eyes were looking straight through him. " Joseph, stop!” Who was it? In turmoil his mind said, " Run.” With the chalice he ran, chancing to notice a curious light following it as he fled in terror down the center aisle. " Look out, Joseph!” He hesitated a split second, and with the terrifying crack of plaster and metal mingled with the weird tinkle of glass the majestic chandelier fell, pinning him beneath it. Father Darrow noticed, in the waning light of afternoon, the workmen were almost through clearing away the debris. He held the unharmed chalice in his hand. Rousing himself from fathom- less thought, he gazed around. The candles flickered in a friendly way, heralding evening. Then he spied a glimmer in a 100 corner of the church. A beam of light from the dome caught its gleam. He crossed picking it up, recognized a crystal from the fallen chandelier.. Attached to it was a piece of paper, and on it, in neat letters, " Repair chandelier, Joseph” Helen Chaiken Intelligentsia As I sit home alone, Every quiz pro gram known, Comes on the radio.

Mr. T. Melden Wenner of Belmont had a job of improving on last year’s seven and twelve record. With almost all of last year’s team to work with, and a few new candidates, things looked well for Emerson basketball enthu- siasts. The Brighton High School basketball court was obtained for home games and a court in South Boston for practice. With full support from the Administration and an increase in student interest, the season progressed. Considering this is only the second year of organized basketball at Emerson, the team has made wonderful progress. Junior Varsity and Freshman squads were added near the end of the season. With more and more male students enrolling at Emerson, basketball is developing into the major sport at the college. A very successful 1949-1950 season is predicted by Coach Wenner. 100 Under the able guidance of Tom Quain, the Panthers took the field in 1948 for the first time in the history of Emerson College. A ten game schedule was arranged, but due to a late Spring and poor weather, only five games were played. After dropping the first three in a row, the Panthers came to life and won the next two, 14-6, and 7-2. For the 1949 season a field is being sought where the team may practice and possibly play home games. With the help of faculty member Mr. William Brotherton, much is being accomplished. Working hand in hand with the newly formed Athletic Asso- ciation the baseball team is preparing a schedule and readying itself for the Spring grind.
