Text from Pages 1 - 144 of the 1950 volume:

Charles Wesley Emersc FOUNDER foreword The (’lass of 1950 has seen and has par- ticipated in the significant growth which Emerson College has achieved daring the last four years. . 1.9 the school increased its academic and labora- tory facilities, the students multiplied their extra- curricular activities. Student groups organized athletics, founded a debating society, and estab- lished a tunes paper that serves as an active voice of the students. The Class of 1950 produced many of the leaders of these groups and took the helm in much of the undergraduate organization. In preparing this, our college annual, we have tried to keep this recent Emerson advance in mind. We wanted our book to be, not only a permanent record of the growth of a class, but also a picture of Emerson itself. In photograph and in word we have made every effort to recapture the short segment of Emerson history of which we are a part. It is with these thoughts foremost in mind that we present the 1950 “ Emersonian Dedication The only conclusive evidence of a man s sincerity is that he gives himself for a principle. Words, money, all things else, are comparatively easy to give away: hut when a man makes a gift of his daily life and practice, it is plain that the truth, whatever it may be, has taken possession of him. . . . Lowell. For these reasons, so excellently expressed, and be- cause he has done so much for Emerson College with a cer- tain perfection and a personality embodying the finest in taste and culture, we dedicate the 1950 Emersonian to CHARLES W. DUDLEY, JR. This . . . Js Emerson Four years ago the largest class in the history of the college, to that date, made their entrance. They were the Class of 1950. Now, the four years gone, this class is graduating. During their span, they accomplished many things. And so by looking back into this period, we feel that we can best give you a glimpse of Emerson College. All phases of Emerson life have advanced. Our increased en- rollment necessitated improvements. Our radio department grew. Our faculty increased. Our administration was enlarged. In line with the increase in enrollment, our student activities also increased. The college catalog well details the administrative and academic end of the school, but we feel the real life and backbone of a school lies in the students and what they do. Therefore, we have gone back into four years to show you just what we have done. By reading and viewing this section, we feel that you will be able to say, " This ... is Emerson .” ivry. The foremost student groups in a school are the individual classes. At Emer- son, each year, the various classes try to present some kind of affair. The first event sponsored by the classes, is a co-operative affair called the Interclass Dance. The Student Government sponsors the event, but calls upon representatives of various classes to aid them. During our school years we saw this fete held in several Metro- politan Boston Hotels, including the Statler and the Bradford. The Frosh are the experimentalists of the college. The type of affair which they present, generally during the second semes- ter, varies with the mood of the incoming classes. One radical freshman group, in recent years, sponsored an affair called " The Backwards Dance,’’ in which girls were expected to pay the way for the boys. But this delightful idea, unfortunately, did not result in a tradition. The Sophomores, however, have their work cut out for them by tradition. Theirs is the annual and happy right to serve a faculty tea. Generally a November date is set aside for this. With the Juniors we reach what is regarded as the outstanding social event of the Emerson school year, the Junior Promenade. Held in one of the local hotel ballrooms, and featuring a good area orches- tra, this affair requires the most preparation. For most students, it is the Emerson social must. And finally we reach the Seniors, who lend an annual climax with their Commence- ment Ball, held each year during the final week of school. Hell Week should not be forgotten in recording the activity efforts of classes. The victims of the year before, the Sopho- mores, take over the gentle torture rites of this harrowing week for Freshmen. The punishment during September, 1949, in- cluded the wearing of baby bonnets, and the shortening of skirts for the girls, and the wearing of similar bonnets, a nd hitching up of the trousers for the boys. The " Hell” comes in the form of making speeches, reciting poems, et cetera, and on the final night of the affair, the neo- phytes are taken through the torture cham- bers which the ingenious Sophomore group has set up. Similar feats of " Hell” are duplicated annually by our fraternities and sororities during the weeks they set aside for hazing their new members. On other pages we have discussed the theatre at Emerson. This, as well as radio, is part of our training at the school. But annually a certain bit of initiative is allowed the students. In the theatre, we find it in the form of independent productions which students put on. They are generally sponsored by a sorority or a fraternity, and are, generally, on the lighter side. The school abounds in talent, and so the majority of Emerson stu- dents shows, whether they be a straight stage, or a nightclub type presentation, they are generally good. In the radio department there is a greater opportunity for individual initiative, in the variety of presentations which may be put over the air. In looking back over four years, we see radio programs such as You ' re the Critic. During the time this program was over the airwaves of the stu- dent station, WECB, such guests as Jose Ferrar, Betty Roqdman and John Carradine were interviewed. Quiz programs were originated and presented by students. One of the most successful of these which started on WECB and continued upon our F.M. outlet, WERS, is Who Am I. Our speech students do not get as ample an opportunity as other school mem- bers to show their wares. The major portion of their excellent work is done in the class- room, with their fellow classmates as audi- ence. But under Mr. Joseph Connor’s tutelage and direction, we get a chance to see students do their magnificent speech work in the form of class recitals. They are presented at convocations and are eagerly awaited. During the four year span of the Class of ’50 many groups presented affairs which have promised to become annual events. One of these is the Alpha Pi Theta Courtyard Fair which is held in the spring. Sponsored by the Fraternity, this event is run in the form of a carnival, with minor Contents games of chance present. Quite a bit of fun was had at this affair during our Emerson tenure. The various Greek organizations, in presenting their various enterprises have tried to outdo each other. Thus we have witnessed dances where, in 1947, people were charged a penny a pound for entrance. The Hallowe’en Dance, sponsored annually by Phi Alpha Tau, Emerson’s oldest fra- ternity, generally introduces something new each year in the form of ghoulish entertain- ment. The sororities seem to have main- tained their forte in the presentation of musicals, upon which Bob Guest, Parkers Zellers and Lee Benjamin, in recent years, have aided them. The competition is keen, and we who are spectators reap the benefits as we attend these various affairs. The students have become publicity- wise. In October of 1949, shortly after Shirley May France attempted to swim the Channel, one Ambrose Hock attempted to swim the Charles, but developed a " cramp” and could not complete his effort. This was one student stunt. There are many other affairs which are held annually by the various groups of the school, but space prohibits a complete listing. But what we have detailed are good examples of the whole. The dances, the parties, the teas, the entertainments . . . these, coupled with the academic and labora- tory work of a school, we feel that " This is Emerson.” Faculty and Administration Seniors Undergrads Literature Activities Organizations Sororities and Fraternities Sports Student Index DOCTOR GODFREY DEWEY Elected as Acting President of Emerson College after the resig- nation of Doctor Green, Doctor Dewey in one year’s time has done much toward the cultural and material development of the college. He is a graduate of Harvard College, 1909. He received his Master of Education in 1921 and his Doctor of Education in 1926. His theses, The Relative Frequency of English Speech Sounds and A System of Shorthand for Personal Use, are world reknowned in the educational field. For many years Dr. Dewey’s attention and energy has been di- rected toward developing the Lake Placid Club. Thus, it is with clear appreciation that we are readily assured much growth and future gain from his business and educational background DR. TRUSTEN RUSSELL The Dean of The College, Dr. Russell came to Emerson in Septem- ber of 1948. A graduate of Princeton University, he received both Master and Doctorate degrees in Romance Languages from Columbia University. He studied for one year at Cologne, Germany. He has taught at Columbia University, Brooklyn College, and Princeton, where he refused two grants to do post-doctoral research in France. He has written a book entitled Vol- taire- Dryden and Heroic Tragedy. Dean Russell’s amiable per- sonality and concern of student prob- lems have earned him the respect of our entire student body. Ai i 4 M a a | - 1 DEAN HAROLD R. KELLER Dean of Administration, Har- old Russel] Keller joined Emerson in the Fall of 1947. A graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy in 1911, he re- turned there for post graduate work in Engineering from 1916 until the out- break of the first World War. In 1924 he resigned from active Naval service and assumed important positions in the business world. He was the office manager of Stone and Webster Engi- neering Corporation for a great many years, and from 1936-39 he was Super- intending Marine Engineer of the U. S. Civil Service. From 1939 to 1947 Mr. Keller was the Material Officer of the Boston Navy Yard. Thus with this extensive training and business back- ground Emerson is indeed fortunate to have Mr. Keller as the Dean of its Administrative Staff. {11 WILLIAM HOWLAND KENNEY Professo r of Speech ELSIE RUTHERFORD RIDDELL B.S. in Ed., Professor of Physical Education for Women JOSEPH E.

McDonald Secretary Robert C. Tull Treasurer At the halfway mark of the century we seniors view ourselves in the mirrored face of Time ' s own clock, eager and determined to fulfill our ambitions. We do not expect easy achivement, but we are optimists who know the best in life awaits us if we create our opportunities and use them wisely. Before we leave our college, we pause to reflect that we sh uld cele- brate 1950, both individually and as a class, by showing the world the best the Emerson tradition can offer. There is a subtler quality than technical proficiency. Call it " magnanimity of atmosphere " or what you will. It is ours for the taking, and each of us will absorb it, mold it, until one day our associates may say, " There goes a sincere, an understanding, a kind person, who wears his learning gracefully, without patronage to anyone. " There was once a time when the thir- teen brownstone steps of 130 Beacon Street were new and wonderful. There was a time when the open door, the bright hallway, and the lazy old clock were strange and different. And at this time we were unaccustomed and untried, eager and assured. You hailed us as " Tomorrow.” We answered, " Make it so. " There was once a time when . . . " Oh, Young Lochinvar has come out of the west . . " Drop your lower jaw, boy, and give me a whoa.” Remember the fun of haz- ing? " O.K. you Maggots, give us a song and dance!” The class elections: " WIN With Wilson,” " Moe For Vice.” There were other voices. Listen. " Albeit by way of digression, Suffice it to say, this is a microphone.” " Learn to love the daisy.” " Who likes Saroyan?” " There’s a chill in the air.” Growing pains in the Radio Department. Pains in the Drama Workshop, too, with a little thing called The Golden Falcon. We started the Emerson Col- lege Choir. With Paul Mundt we created the Berkeley Beacon. And didn’t we help launch WECB? All this was only yesterday. There was once a time when we were Sophomores and felt secure as Emersonians. There were new class rooms in 126 Beacon Street. " Does the Espie know about our new Snack Bar?” There was a new History Depart- ment. " What is it with these basketball players? It’s the cheerleaders we came to see.” Then there was the time a German II class was lectured half a period in French. " This out- Herods Herod.” " Tears a passion to tatters, to very rage.” What else are they saying? " Something will be done by sundown today. ' " Muscle in wit McGoon.” And there was a time for sadness with the loss of Mr. Shaw. Even this was only yesterday. There was once a time when the only important thing was a Junior Prom. " Wow! Adele Wentzell, Prom Queen! How about that?” " Now, our first assignment is Henry I V, Part I, which is a play by Shakespeare.” There were new passageways cut between the buildings. Someone wrote a poem in the Berkeley Beacon and circulation jumped tremendously. Somebody at rehearsal kept shouting, " Give me something! I want red meat!” There was our year at the Dance Drama. Rita Dorfman, . . . she is typical of all that is Emerson; she was our queen.” Good job by Student Government getting that con- stitution together. Someone started our flour- ishing Debating Team. This was only yes- terday. Today is a time of changes. Dr. Dewey has replaced Dr. Green, who left us for the University of the South. WERS-FM is on the air. Dodsworth, Othello, Winterset, State of The Union, and Playwright’s Workshop keeping the workshop busy. " So you think you can teach, do you.” " Now, Shakespeare ' s minor plays should not be confused with his others, which are called major plays.” Time to order caps and gowns, invitations, and class rings. Time for the Senior Prom. Time to get out a Yearbook. This is it. " You have had four years to learn. Now go practice, taking from us what you can and leaving to us what we can remember.” All that remains is tomorrow. Once there was a time for us. A time for our laughter and our tears. Once there was a time when we were a part of this. Now we are gone. Tomorrow, who will stand under the lazy clock in the bright hallway and listen for us. Who will remember?

" To comply Is partially to die.” Structurally we compound The tenets native to the common ground, " No time at all to wait. Too late.” Each convolute extension Choking the avenues of comprehension. " This act Unites the word and fact.” Decline condemns forced blooming; The outcast weeds grow grateful, all- consuming. Less known than at the start We part. Alary Hill First prize winner Snow White dewdrops caress The windowpane softly, Drawn silently through The clutching of night. For all things Born singly in the womb The quiet white knows Before the gongs begin. Anita Caroline Travaglia Second prize winner Velvet Vermilion With shaven hair like the convicts wear, She sat in her flowing robes, Holding verses of prayers, citing metrical prose. Her archaic eyes, simple and wide, Would glance from her Simian face, Through muslin drapes, transparent pane, To leave’s pattern, laced. Her ebony folds did stir and trail, As the pointed shoe’s parade, On the chestnut floor, reflections made. The ochre sun commenced to run Within the liquid sky, Till all the heavens turned milky grey, And the angora moon hung high. The nun did stop and muse and long For woodlands, meadows, and trees, And the gentle moss and the waving song Of the golden honey bees. But the chant of the walls engulfed her. Her clenched hand opened, and fell A rectangular inch of velvet vermilion, Shaped in the form of a bell. She stooped to the floor and the Bible through, With fumbling fingers did search For the inch of velvet vermilion, lost, she knew, Lost in the maze of myriads of ebony folds, Lost, in shadow melted in shadow. All is vain. All is lost. Hirondelle. Anne Helene Bailly Third prize winner Tides Not far out from shore The sea is serenely quiet; Hardly a ripple disturbs Its satin surface. Then slowly, and with Fast increasing motion, And endless ridge of water Rises in convulsive shudder From its parent sea. It grows, and reaching At last the peak of its vain endeavor, Tumbles in white foaming spray And crawls quickly up the beach. Its path is short, For with a slow, relentless force The mother se a slides up and back, Gathering her wayward brood Again into the depths Of a trackless, endless world. Born from an unending Depth of mystery, Racing through time and space To utter destruction And ultimate return To infinite darkness, How insignificant is man And his petty wars of death. Death itself a culmination Of his highest thought Or lowest vice. George Burgess Fourth prize winner Stars Rain As I was out alone tonight, I gazed upon a wonderous sight. The heaven was full of twinkling stars Which seemed so close and yet so far. They laughed and danced and sang to me, And talked of things that they could see. They talked to me of things to be, Of hopes and dreams which made me free. Free of all reality’s ways Of smashing dreams that live today. And free from all those little men Who claim to be what’s known as friends. I saw many things up in the sky We made pictures together, the stars and I. They told me things that are known to few, Of how they shine, and the things they do. I saw my star, the brightest of all, I saw her laugh and heard her call. She is my Holy Grail at night, Who tells me wrong things from the right. Many stars have stars of their own But each little star has seeds to be sown. And these seeds shall be scattered throughout space, They will travel awhile then take their place. Some night, my friend, when you’ve time to spare, Look up in the sky if you have a care. You may find happiness from afar, Given to you by a little star. Beh Silence The water sweeps over the stone Through nite and the old, the grey dawn, In heat of the long leering day, And lapping in time’s chilly night. Then slowly the stones will turn green As slime gathers there. Nothing quick — Not even the hollow, the grave. When silence is old, words depart. Anita Caroline Travaglia Great wet city — Tonight I see you at one glance Caught in a single raindrop Hovering for a fleeting moment On the window pane. Tonight I see your Shining tears, Hear your raucous Haunting laughter, See you melt into The blue fog Which nurses you Within its voluminous arms And finally, reluctantly Surrenders you to morning. Lisa Goldstein Tears Amidst a pool of blue and green Swim the tears from my dream They rise and fall with each new thought They come from things that I have fought. The pool fills to the brim with the tears Spilling my happiness and my fears When I have no tears that gleam I have lost all my dreams. Beh Loneliness Who sent me you, immortal Loneliness? Phantom brother ever at my side. Were you sent to teach me the humbleness Of men and ships cast up by the tide? Who sent you to my barren room To show me your power at its best? The lesson of a heart so sunk in gloom It felt the friendship of a wing’d pest. But who sent you, told you to return? When we had said our last good-byes. For what reason did I have to learn You even could haunt my loved one’s eyes? Stewart W. Mayne INCIDENT " We ' re going to America,” said my mother and she looked very happy. I stared at her. America was the other end of the earth. Why America? Why leave Germany at all? " Darling,” mother said gently. " Do you remember the day last week when you were coming home from the birthday party and those children .” She stopped, but I remembered. Ursel, Hansi and I were running across the Hansa Platz and into the Lessingstrasse when three or four girls from our class at school appeared from behind a house. They began to shout unfriendly things at us and a moment later some big boys joined them. They shouted too, and threw stones. We three were terribly afraid and ran home quickly. Mother was there, and in the familiar pattern of the apartment I soon forgot. But now I remembered. I nodded slowly. " You see,” continued mother. " We’re going to America because those things won’t happen there. Everyone can believe and wo r- ship and live as they please. There will be no need for you to come home crying because ignorant boys and girls say unfriendly things.” I didn’t want to go. Leaving Ursel and Hanni and my grandparents. . . I cried then. Mother continued softly, " Lisa, in America you may attend any school you like. The director will never make a speech like Herr Lowe did last week.” I thought about the way Herr Director Lowe’s small moustache wiggled up and down as he had announced that from Lebruary 1st on, the Jewish girls were no longer required to attend public school. More specifically, he had added, classes would not be open to them. I had not understood why, and I still did not understand. In Germany, in 1936, one did not readily discuss Nazi tactics. However, leaving Germany meant a lot to my mother and father, and I was young enough to forget tears and to become quite happy in my curious anticipation. We packed everything and shipped furniture. There was excitement in leaving. People came to visit and told us how fortunate we were. Then there was a train trip, an air- plane ride, and a long ocean voyage, during which mother and daddy smiled often and were very gay. When we docked in New York Harbor, they stood at the rail, hand in hand without saying a word for a long time. Then daddy smiled at me with a wonderful smile. Lisamaus, take a deep breath. The air is sweet and fresh.” America was wonderful. New places, friendly new people, the laughter in learning a new language. And the school was nice. Mother and daddy were happy all the time and I was happy with them. One afternoon, a little girl who lived in the apartment house next to ours on Common- wealth Avenue had a birthday party. I wasn’t invited and I wondered why until the next day. I met her on the way to school and she said, " Gee, I’m sorry, Lisa, that I couldn’t ask you to my birthday party. My mother wouldn’t let me — because you’re Jewish.” We walked on toward the school and the sun shone in the new land. And I decided I wouldn’t tell mother about the party. It meant so much to her to be in America and I didn’ t want her to be disappointed. Lisa Goldstein THE PLAN No, he thought, jubilantly, there would- n’t be any mistakes. He had been much too careful. This wasn’t a thing done on impulse, it was carefully planned — oh so very carefully and cleverly. It was so simple, really, to arrange a perfect crime, when certain elements were taken into consideration, and you had certain properties already at hand to work with. All you had to do was to plan carefully, like producing a play or a radio show — everything was taken care of in advance, nothing left to chance. There couldn’t be any slip-up even as far as chance was concerned, because there was an alternate step for every plan in case some- thing went wrong — the little slip that always seemed to catch the criminal, and which was always the thing not counted upon. Chance — well, let chance step in if it dared — he was ready for it, he was prepared for any twist, almost hoped for one to come up to prove the efficiency of his work. He was really quite satisfied and felt entirely at ease with himself, and not a little proud of his creative genius. He sat in the big leather chair and waited. This was going to be the hardest thing, he decided as he lighted a cigarette, the waiting. Inhaling deeply, he thought over the whole plan again, and with the mind of a professional criminologist, or a trained lawyer, he craftily searched for the tiniest loophole. There just weren’t any. He smiled exultantly when he thought of the suicide note written T 88 } in her own handwriting. He had saved it for almost a year, and there wouldn ' t be anyone who would remember it. No one. He thought that was the best prop in the whole scheme. In fact, it had been the note which had first given him the idea. The note. He remem- bered the night she wrote it in Marj’s apart- ment, where they had gone that night to play bridge. Another couple had dropped in, and after a while someone had suggested a new game, called " Suicide.” Part of it was the writing out of notes by each contestant, tell- ing why he planned to kill himself. He had helped her with it, phrasing it so that it appeared the cause for her death was that she wanted to be with her secret lover, who had likewise committed suicide, rather than go on living away from her. He had no idea then, of course, that she really had a secret lover. That hadn’t come to light until he had been discharged from the army, and they had come back east to live and she had told him about Fred. He had been furious, and had refused her a di- vorce, and so they had lived together, yet apart — two almost strangers under the same roof, each living his own life, hardly speaking to each other. He had met Jean three months ago, and had fallen deeply in love with her. When he offered to grant Irene the divorce she had once asked for, she had refused, and laughingly told him she would go on living in the house, and would continue to flaunt Fred in his face and added that she could see no reason why he should care now that he no longer loved her, or she him. Of course, she didn’t know about Jean. She would never have thought him cap- able of such an affair. He smiled again to him- self, as he realized how very little she really did know about him. Jean had helped him plan it. Besides the house and freedom, there was the insurance policy that Irene had, which would pay him ten thousand dollars in the event of her death. Weeks of careful planning together would soon pay off, for tonight it would happen. He slid the tiny 25 caliber automatic out of his pocket and looked at it. He had bought it for her when they were living in Florida, and she had been alone in the bungalow so much when he was away flying. She had always laughed at the idea, and had never shot the gun, even for practice. But she had kept it anyway, and tonight he had taken it from her drawer for the last time. He had checked it, and oiled it and had even fired a few practice rounds into the sand bank down by the river last Sunday. It was in perfect shape. And it was her gun, registered in her name, just as the house and car were in her name, he thought, grimly. He looked at the note which was lying on the table beside the window, and picking it up, read it again. It was perfect. " Dear George,” it said, " I can’t go on like this any longer. You know how much I love him, and as long as we are alive we are apart, and the only real freedom we can ever have is this way I have decided to take. Please don’t feel too badly, I know you never really loved me.” And it was signed, " Irene.” It was perfect, though he had to admit it was also corny. Like the kind of notes you see in movies, and hear on the radio. But he also knew that per- haps just because it was corny, it might add just enough of a note of sincerity to completely cinch it with the police. He looked at his watch. Ten-twenty. About a half-hour longer to wait. Then he would be free. Irene had gone to her club, and would be back promptly at eleven. He knew she would be because he had heard her tell Fred over the phone to meet her at eleven at the house. As for himself, he was supposed to be in New York. Irene had driven him to the station at eight o’clock, and had seen him off on the train. What she hadn’t seen was him jumping off the rear platform and running back to within a block of the station, and getting into a cab. She hadn’t heard him climb the trellis up to his open room window, and she hadn’t heard him lift the receiver off the hook when she had called Fred. For five weeks in a row he had done this same thing, but she had never called Fred until tonight. She had never even known he was in the house. He had climbed out the same way, and had spent the night at Jean’s apartment in Oldton, eleven miles away, and had caught the train from there to get back to town on schedule. It had finally paid off. According to plan. He could even count on witnesses who had seen him board the train, and who knew of his weekly trip to New York. He smiled again as he put the note back on the table. Two hours from now, he actually would be in New York, and they would finally reach him at his hotel to tell him about the — tragedy. There wouldn’t be any question about him not checking in at the hotel until late. He often did that on purpose, to establish that fact. The time in between? He had spent it at Louis’ Bar and Grill, ' ' having a couple of drinks.” He had paid the bartender just enough to be faithful to him, but not enough to be curious. The alibi — perfect. Check. Fred would be here at a quarter of eleven. J89 He had fixed that, too. J ean was a pretty good mimic, and had listened to a record of Irene ' s voice that she had made once at an amusement park, and Jean had it down perfectly. The telephone conversation was the finishing touch and he had told J ean — from the telephone booth of a faraway drugstore — just what Irene had said to Fred and how Fred had answered. The rest was easy. Jean had called Fred shortly after Irene had talked to him, and had asked him to come at a quarter of eleven, instead of at eleven, to " sort of get things ready for me dear, I’d so like to have a drink waiting for me when I come home.” And Fred had swallowed it beautifully, and had jumped at the chance to " get things ready” for Irene. Here again, timing was important. Irene would be prompt, and so would Fred, and there would be only five minutes between their respective deaths — close enough to make it look like a perfect double suicide. By the next morning when they found the bodies, no coroner could tell fifteen minutes difference in their deaths, or ten or five. It would be so much nicer to kill them separately, he wouldn’t have to hurry — he could take his time, carefully, according to plan. The bodies had to be found just so. It had to look real. He could almost see the expression on Irene’s face when she saw Fred lying there. And himself, waiting for her. He wondered if she would plead for her life, if she would cry, or throw herself at his feet, or would she tell him he could never get away with it? He smiled. He was going to get away with it. He had planned it that way. This was the perfect crime. Chance could do its damndest. He was ready. The door was opening in the front hall, and he leaped up from the chair suddenly breathing hard. It was Fred. He could see his face through the crack in the door. Fred went directly out to the kitchen and returned presently with two bottles in his hands. He certainly knew his way around the house, George thought. Now he was at the living room door and was turning on the light by the divan. George crept softly from the den across the hall, gripping the miniature gun tightly in his hand. Suddenly Fred wheeled around and saw George creeping toward him. George straightened and smiled. " Surprised?” he said. Fred grew suddenly very white and just stood there. His lips moved twice before any words came out. " But I-I thought you . . .” " Yeah, but I’m not. I’m really sorry it has to be this way, Fred. I got nothing against you. You can blame it all on my sweet little wife — when you see her again.” He let him have it three times in the chest, and Fred crashed to the floor. He rolled over, tried once to get up, and then lay still. George went over to the body and looked at it for a minute. Then slowly he put the gun back in his pocket and dragged Fred ' s body over to the divan and propped it up against the edge. He looked back along the floor. No blood stains yet. They would form just where he wanted them to. Irene would be sitting in the chair, with one little hole in the side of her head when they found them. He would get her as she came in the door. It would be quick and clean that w ' ay. It was five minutes to eleven when he looked at his watch. Five more minutes and he would be all clear. J ean would call at exact- ly eleven-ten, to check. Later they would be on their way to New York, and freedom. He checked Fred’s body again. Perfect. He went to stand by the door. Any second now. Five long minutes dragged by. He puffed nervously on a cigarette, then suddenly ran to the den and frantically dumped the ashtray he had used into his pocket. Cold sweat broke out on his forehead as he thought how ' near he had come to making a mistake. God! That was close. Where the hell was she? Ten after eleven. Five more minutes pounded past, and he butted out a third cigarette in his pocket. The telephone rang suddenly, shattering the silence like a bomb. His heart pounding, he raced into the den. It was Jean. At last! He jerked the receiver off the hook, and paused for a moment to get himself under control. " Hello,” he said. It was a man’s voice. It said, " Is this Mister Pierce?” Before he could stop it, instinctively, he let it out. " Yes,” he gasped. It was done. The slip, the one chance he couldn’t have counted on, his own weakness. But maybe it would be all right . . . Maybe . . . The voice was talking on. " Your wife . . . in an accident . . . crashed into a truck on a curve . . . I’m sorry, Mr. Pierce, she’s dead.” He dropped the phone, and half turned, the sweat rolling off his forehead, and making little damp spots on his shirt front. Across the hall he could see Fred’s feet sticking grotes- quely out onto the rug. He could still hear the voice. . . . " Hello? Hello?” it was saying. George E. Burgess, Jr. Speech and " The power of oral expression transcends any practical use to which it may be put and contributes as a vitality to the development of the whole per- sonality.” This principle, as stated in the Bulletin, is the very heart of Emerson College. From this ideal has developed the central department of the curriculum. Concentrating on the importance and the ex- pression of that which is individual, the Speech Department creates the ' " Emersonian.” Our Speech Therapy Department is one of the oldest in this part of the country. Since the first course was taught by Professor Robbins, we have advanced with the science of speech correction until { 92 } Speech Zherapy today we have a program of courses that increases with the passing of each semester. This year also found the largest enrollment of Speech Therapy majors in the school ' s history. In addition to our regular clinical work through the Division of Mental Hygiene for the State of Massachusetts, the facilities of the Lynn Public School Speech Therapy Department were added this year, affording our students invaluable experience in public school methods, simultaneously with the State Clinic approach. With science showing us the strong link between speech and hearing, we kept abreast of the times by introducing a new course in audiometry under the very capable instruction of Miss Perry. As supervisors at our clinics this year we were fortunate in having Miriam Towart, Mary Muir, and Joan Lehner at the West End Clinic on Wednesdays. At the Monday Quincy Clinic we had Guy Aylward. The Thursday Quincy Clinic saw a record number of ob- servers and practice teachers this year under the supervision of Louis Stoia and Pola Chasman. At the public schools of Lynn we had Robert Behrens supervising on Thursdays. With the inspiration of having studied under one of the fathers of Speech Therapy in America, we look forward with greatest confi- dence and anticipation to our future endeavors.

Radio Department — WERS Progressive change has been the keynote of activitiy in the Radio Department during the past year. Adding to the already substantial accomplishments of the previous three years, the department has now arrived at a point of development that ranks it alongside the best college and university radio departments in the entire country. Advancement has been most noticeable in the areas of curriculum development and physical expansion. The radio curriculum now represents a comprehensive and sensibly pro- portioned treatment of the entire broadcasting field. And with the increasing importance of television, curriculum modifications are already being made to make possible the offering of a comprehensive and thoroughly adequate program of training for this important, new aspect of the broadcasting field. Physically, the radio department has made great strides. The studio layout and technical facilities are on a par with many medium and large commercial radio stations and are far better than many small stations. Undoubtedly the greatest single achievement of the past year was the inauguration of regular broadcasting service over the college’s own radio outlet, FM radio station WERS. This non-commercial, educational station, operating on an FM frequency of 88.1 megacycles, is on the air seven hours a day, five days a week with a varied pro- gramming schedule of the best in entertainment, information, and education, including pro- grams of classical and semi-classical music, news, drama, forums, and special events. Enabling it better to carry out such an enriched programming, WERS is a regular subscriber to the news printer service of the International News Service and to the transcribed music library of the Associated Program Service. In the plan of organization and operation it is significant to note that the station is staffed and run by students majoring in radio, thus offering them the kind of practical experience that will be of inestimable value in their later professional careers. r First Row: J.

Its prime objective is to supplement the class work of the par- ticipating students by practical experience in the announcing, technical, programming and other departments of a radio station. The station operates from four to six o’clock Monday through Friday, and programs a variety of shows including popular and classical music, drama, (both live and recorded), news, sports, special events and amateur talent. This year WECB has on its staff ten announcers, nine technicians and forty-three others working in various essential departments. To further their professional training, students from WECB are advanced to work on Emerson’s new FM station WERS. Emerson College is especially proud of one of its prominent groups . . . The Emerson Choir. This year thirty members met under the direction of Grover J. Oberle, who is primarily responsible for its formal organization. In September of 1946, eighteen students, who realized the necessity of a choral club to represent the school, organized an informal group who sang for their own enjoyment and also for Emerson social affairs. Their music was fairly limited, being an embryonic organization. In 1947, with the introduction of Mr. Oberle as a member of the faculty and with the recommendation of ex-President Green, some of these original members joined the assembly singing class. They sang at the Chapel services under Mr. Oberle’s direction. Since that time, the choir has participated regularly in the Chapel services at the Edward Everett Hale Memorial Chapel of The First Church in Boston. It was not until the fall of 1948, however, that the choir became a separate group of voluntary members. Definite hours for rehearsals were scheduled by the school and the first officers were elected — Duane Fitts, president, and Bill Wente, secretary. This year, the Emerson Choir is more strongly organized than ever, receiving funds for their music from Students’ Activities fees. Performing both sacred and secular music, their principle activitiy has been in assisting at the Chapel services. However, they also plan on continued participation in the radio department broadcasts, and on future performances in co-operation with the drama department, as well as at special functions of the school and with outside organizations. With the assistance of the administration, the student government and the individual classes, choir robes of the school color were secured. We wish this progressive group success in the future.

This course of fundamental technique is a stepping-stone to participation in the annual May Day Dance Drama. On May Day, under the direction of the Department of Physical Education for Women, advanced students of the dance presented the dance drama, " Cinderella,” immediately preceding the coronation of the May Queen. •{ 100 I ' Drama Summer School and Emerson 1949-50, saw fifteen productions pace the boards of the college theatre. The students, directed in their various groups by Mrs. Gertrude Binley Kay, Mr. Albert Cohn and Mr. Harry Coble, presented plays which ranged from the Shakespearean tragedy, Othello , to the Thomas melodrama, Arizona. Under situations and conditions similar to those in professional stock theatres, the Summer group presented three productions, John Loves Mary, For Love or Money, and Parlor Story. Then came fall, and our Advanced Theatre group presented the Emerson audience with a play of character study, Dodsworth. During November we received a look at some of the excellent ma- terial which is slowly ascending the stairs to Ad- vanced Drama, when Mr. Albert Cohn and his Sophomore Bandbox Group presented an arena production of The Joyous Season. On November 30, the tradition is to present a play by William Shakespeare. This year we came forth with Othello. To a four year observer, the growth of the Emerson seniors in this production from their initial 1947 play, Skin of Our Teeth , was marked. Some of the visiting Emersonians on that Founders’ Day were heard to remark that the Othello presentation was one of the finest that they have ever seen at Emerson. i 102 In December the Junior Lab Group tackled a very difficult play when they presented Maxwell Anderson’s Winter set. Following the Christmas vacation, we gained our first look at our first year students. They presented a series of scenes, doing an excellent job. Emerson drama took another huge step for- ward just prior to the end of the first semester. A series of one-act plays, all written by Emerson students, were presented in our theatre. They ranged from sheer farce to tense melodrama, and showed that some of our Emerson students have a very definite play-writing talent. During our second semester, we were served up an equal measure of fine drama. The opening play in February was Malquerida, or The Passion Flower. The play supplied excellent working material for our drama majors. Following the Spanish folk play was the tense war drama, Idiot’s Delight. The political play State of the Union, was the final advanced production of the year. The Sophomores tackled difficult work, when they presented Luigi Pirandello’s Right You Are, (If You Think So). The J umor group seemed to have fun galore when they presented the annual melodrama, Arizona, in May. For a fine production, we say to those leaving the title of their commencement play, " Bravo,” for work well done. { 103 You Were Lucky, Andrew Marvell Now she totters across the stage, Hesitant step, and bent with age. Tender arms, of a loving pair, Escort her to a cushioned chair. Now she relaxes with weary sign, Like one who looks Death in the eye, Yet unafraid he’ll command the Fates, But only wonders why he waits. I sit and marvel at this sight That makeup men can have such might To transform Beauty into an old crone, Honey bittered by a paint and powder drone. Costumes designed by Madame LeFrench.

Last year, the main project of the SGG was to draw up a permanent Student Govern- ment Constitution which would prove satisfactory to the student body, the faculty, and the administration of our college. We believe this goal certainly was accomplished because of the diligence and hard work of the past year ' s SGG. It has been the main purpose of the SGG of 1949-50, to maintain the objectives set forth in this constitution. One of the chief projects during the past year has been the assembling of material for a Freshman Handbook, which will be sent to each new student, telling him about our school, its objectives, and its activities. The Freshman Handbook will become a specific function of the SGG. Also during the past year, a close relationship between the SGG and the student body has been established through frequent student body meetings. Other activities of this body, during the first semester, included E-Night, the organiza- tion of the Freshman Class, the Interclass Dance held at the Bradford Roof, and the placement of a television set in the smoker for the World Series. By working more closely with the student body and by allowing our new constitu- tion to be our guiding light, we feel the SGG has made great strides in the evolution of a stronger and better Emerson College. In October the first meeting of the Student Activities Co-ordinating Committee of 1949 and 1950 was held. This committee was established approximately three years ago by the president of the college with the aid of the Student Government Group. The members of this committee include the president and the secretary of Student Government, a representative from each student organization, and the heads of the various departments wdthin the college. During the meetings of this group, the college calendar of extra-curricular activities is drawn up. Whenever conflicts arise over the dates chosen by various organizations for their activities, it is the duty of this group to determine a suitable arrangement for all concerned. Meetings of this committee are held at least twice a year, at the beginning of each semester, to establish the dates of the extra-curricular activities for each term. { 109 1 First Row: F. Rich, E.

The Student Christian Association, newly formed this year at Emerson, has the purpose of furthering the cause of Christian fellowship on the campus by making real and practical the ideals of Christianity to the college student. Meetings are held once a month, with smaller study groups meeting weekly to discuss such fields as Christian Faith and Heritage, Social Responsi- bility, World Relatedness, Publicity, Finance, and Membership. This year, the SCA sponsored a successful tea, to which all Emerson was invited. Plans were made for a Spring dance, special Fenten worship services, a series of public discussions on Christian Faith, A Religious Embassy week, and a freshman " Bible.” The Emerson Counselorship of the Hillel Foundation completed a very active program during 1950. Early in October, a reception was held at Hillel House. This was followed by a bowling party in December and then a tour of Brandeis University in February. There, along with other Hillel groups from various univerisites and colleges, they enjoyed a delicious luncheon, short speeches by prominent speakers, and a dance. The foremost event of the group’s activities was the second annual " Hillel April Shower Dance,” held in the school theatre on the evening of April 29 th. During the year, Hillel’s Inter-Faith Commit- tee supported, in co-operation with the S.C.A., the Newman Club’s " Christmas Orphan Party.” Hillel First Row: V. Epstein, C. Zanditon, A. Goldman, J.

Newman Club With the aim of furthering the development of students spiritually, culturally, and socially, the Newman Club began its activities this year with a formal initiation ceremony which has been incorporated in the charter. At the Christmas party for orphans, an annual affair and a highlight of the first semester, through the help and co-operation of the Inter-Faith Council, which was established this year, this club entertained and cared for over one hundred fifty children. The officers have placed various kinds of functions on the agenda for the coming year. Among them are meetings, under the guidance of our Chaplain, Father McDonnell, with the Newman Clubs of neighboring colleges. First Row (Standing): J. Brigati, (Seated): A. DelNunzio, E. Hessett, R.

The 1949-50 year began auspiciously for Sig- ma with a traditional pledge dinner. Our guests were faculty advisors Albert Cohn, and Rev. and Mrs. Camille Bedard. In accordance with the clause in the constitu- tion, citing as our aims the advancement of drama and the speech arts, Sigma this year inaugurated the precedent of an annual play to be produced by sorority members. Our first effort was the rollicking Torchbearers by George Kelly. This, the best of satires on " the Little Theat-uh Movement,” was ably directed by James Nolan.

To our growing list of honorary members, we added the following men: Mr. Cledge Roberts, Television Producer and Director at TV station WPIX in New York; Mr. Gene Rousseau, Program Director of radio station WWON in Woon- socket, Rhode Island; Mr. Paul Perrault, General Manager of radio station WTAO in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Mr. Gus Saunders, of radio station WNAC and a member of the faculty. We unwrapped The Courtyard Fair, to the great delight of the College. This featured the " Dunking Stool” and a barn dance with unusual surprise prizes! Also we continued in the tradition of informal dances with our Dungaree-Drag. To conclude the year, our intrepid athletes outlasted Rho Delta Omega in a slugfast softball game: Final score— CENSORED. Rho Delta Omega, founded last year with Warren Wright acting as president of the charter group, went into its second year with Willard Smith at the helm. The prospects of its second year found this radio fraternity contemplating an annual theatre production. They also attempted to establish their physical prowess by the challenging of other fra- ternities to Spring softball games. Several honorary members were brought into the young frat. They were Dr. Lipp, Mr. Rinker, Dr. Stoodley, artist Bud Wheelan, Mr. Zorn, and Mr. Anderson. Emersonians may look forward to seeing more from Rho Delta Omega. The group, already one of the largest fraternities in body, is attempting to become affiliated with a national group, and all indications point toward success in this endeavor. First Row: FI.

Cheerleaders When the Emerson " Panthers” took the court this year, they were well supported by the student body. The returning veterans of the cheerleading squad, along with the new members, led the students’ vocal support of the team. " Cheering the team on” is a well known phrase, and the ’4$ -’50 season saw it carried out. When the team was ahead the crowd yelled in approval, and when it was behind it yelled louder to give them that added ' ’lift. " It was this " lift,” directed by the cheerleaders, that helped the " Panthers” complete a successful season. Marcell ( " Shorty”) Langenhahn headed the cheering squad as he did last year. His able assistants were Pat Young, Connie La Torre, Joan Brenner, all members of last year’s squad, and the new members: Vivian Epstein, Carol Weiss, and Marjorie Glou. M. Langenhahn, V. Fpstein, E. Weiss, C. LaToore, J. Brenner, M. Glou, P. Young. Basketball The 1949-1950 Basketball season at Emerson College was the most successful in the history of the college. Mr. Dick Thomas of Boston Latin High School and M.I.T., was engaged as head basketball coach. The combined efforts of Coach Thomas and Co-Captains Andy Hock and Jack Weir produced a well co-ordinated Varsity team. Along with a Varsity squad of fourteen members, Emerson had a very successful J unior Varsity team. The highlight of the basketball campaign was the trip to Waterbury, Connecticut, to play the University of Connecti- cut. Many double-headers were scheduled throughout the season. Support by the student body reached a new high, due to the work of the Athletic Association. With the enrollment of many new G.I. male students, Emerson can look to the future with optimism in respect to Athletics. The 1949-50 Basketball season was a fine example. { 121 First Row: J.

The team was coached by " Red” Moon, who was hired early in the season, and coach Moon was ably assisted by captain Tom Quain. The season’s record was four wins and five losses. Two of these losses came at the hands of two of the better small college teams in New England, Suffolk University and Wentworth Institute, by the scores of 7-6 and 5-3 respectively. With a new coach, Dick Thomas, and twelve of the fifteen lettermen of last year returning, the Emerson nine looks forward to a much more successful season in 1950. First Row: W. Williams, S. Main, J.
