we ehitate . . .
Once in a while we encounter some one who leaves a mark on our lives so
profound and penetrating that we are never quite the same afterward. In
our search for solid stability in a tottering, neurotic world, that person often
furnishes the raft to which we cling before we reach our own strength. We,
the Class of 1954, have found encouragement and inspiration from one such
person in our own faculty. Our development in his classroom has tran-
scended the narrow, pedagogical requirements, for he has abandoned conven-
tional methods in his efforts to stimulate active thought and opinion on con-
troversial issues. Governed by a sincere faith in the individual's prerogative
to free expression despite the scorn of popular opinion and guided by a deter-
mination to raise the cultural level beyond that of the intellectual pygmy, he
has strengthened our belief in ideas we might have squelched. By his own
admission he is a rebel-a professional debunker. We, however, can see
beyond this humble self-effacementg for with quickened appreciation we
realize that here is a modern frontiersman, a crusader and fearless critic of the
accepted evils of our times. In the shadowy gloom of the wave of anti-intellec-
tualism and glorification of the low brow he has kindled the beacon of truth
Fully conscious of our obligations and responsibilities as citizens in a free so-
Cletl' and newly Prepared, by his example, to accept them, we gratefully dedi-
cate our Year Book to . .

WE SEN1oRs are prouder than usual in producing our Year Book this year. N013
only does our edition include the regulaf, eXPCC'fed Sets Of PiCfUfCS HHCl Candids,
added an innovation to this annual project by the inclusion of
but we also have . , . , .
this special section devoted entirely to Senior aCt1V1f1CS. Cul' dCS1IC to have
these events, usually lacking in Our OWU CODES, Covered 111 the 1954
Emersonian has led to the delay in our publication date. We hope that you
e our motives and will enjoy this COmIT1CI1CC1'I1GI1U Sefltion as
much as we who have left. Cn the first Wednesday following our spring vaga.
tion, we substituted the Chapel Service with Cap and Crown Day. Dur Class
Advisor, Mrs. Maxfield, led us in our official induction as prospective gradu-
ates. This dramatic ceremony was the first of the several exclusive Senior ac-
tivities, which culminated in our final day of honor.
The last week of classes was inordinately hectic for us. Tradition
ruled the day that Wednesday, when in the company of the juniors we drove
off to the Cape to celebrate Sneak Day at Hyannis and Dennisport. After the
rain of the first part of the month, we particularly enjoyed the clear, warm day.
Hand-Me-Down Day was a combination of solemnity and dignity mixed with
pride and gaiety. We turned over the duties of our offices, dedicated the Year
Book, and received awards. We took time outfor our final examinations along
with the rest of you, and then returned during the last week before Commence-
ment. Our classmates performed in our senior class play "The Lady's Not for
Burning", the production running for three evenings.
On Saturday we participated in the Baccalaureate Service at the
First Church in Boston. This formal occasion was marked by a stimulating
address by Dr. McKinley. In the afternoon several of us entertained the guests
with moving and skilled performances in the Senior Recital. Later that same
evening, our Banquet was a marked contrast to the sober serenity of the
morning. Our parents joined with us in this last festive occasion, at which
time our Class Will and Prophecy were read.
. At last on Sunday, the thirteenth, at 2:30 o'clock, we began our
final Senior activity, .the one toward which we had worked together for four
years. We marched in to our Commencement at the Old South Church, sat
own as a body to hear our own Senior speaker as well as our guest, and then
separately rose to receive our degrees and diplomas
We eameS'flY hope that you, who will soon follow us, will enjoy as
fine a round of event
s in your Senior year as the Class ,of 1954.

HAIG: My friends - As 1 look out over this sea of familiar faces, nostalgic memories of
years gone by come flooding back to me. It seems like only yesterday that we were strolling
through the corridors of what was then Emerson College, before the great fire of '63.
Little did we know on Graduation Day in june of 1954, that in only nine short years our
beloved three buildings would crumble into burning ashes, along with so many other
historic landmarks. But the Emerson tradition to "fight back" was with us. Fortunately
our sagacious board of trustees had had the foresight to heavily insure the college, and
with the 75 million dollars thereby received, we were able to buy up the sites of the for-
mer Harvard and M.1.T. Universities, as well as the Old Sheraton Plaza Hotel, and the
State House. And so, by an ironic act of fate, what was formerly a small specialized col-
lege, has now grown into a big institution of learning, "Emerson University".
Students now enjoy a fifteen mile campus along the Charles, and have accesss to worldf
renowned facilities. Among these are the new national network television channel,
operated solely by the University students, the largest Speech Therapy Clinic in the east,
which aids children from all over the United States, Canada, and South America, and
our Theater Ciuild, situated in the former New England Mutual Hall, which was recently
awarded the Boston Drama Critics award for outstanding performances. Emerson now
offers Schools of Medicine, Law, Music, Physical Education, and Dil Refinery. Our
Athletic Department recently received world acclaim when our football team defeated
Notre Dame, 84-O, in the Boston Bean Bowl. This year we are proud to announce that our
discus team is taking part in the Olympic Tournaments in Denmark.
Every one of us connected with Emerson University takes pride in the prestige and ac-
complishments of our great center of knowledge, made possible by an amazing stroke of
Looking out into the maze of faces before me, I feel compelled to personally acknowledge
several of the many outstanding personalities here this evening. Seated at the head of the
table to my left is Marilyn Walsh, owner of the renowned Walsh Walking Studios for
Young Gentlewomen, whose motto is, "Walk Your Way into Your Man's Heart". Next
to her, is Andy Macmillan, ex-senator from Massachusetts, who's now campaigning for
the governorship. His famous slogan is on the lips of thousands, "Bill in with Mac-
Ar the table to my right is Carole Saslow. She has just returned from a nationwide lecture
tour. Her most popular subject was, "How to be Loved by All". Down a few places is
Eleanor Altmann, the Sophie Tucker of 1984, star of her own television show, "Mime
Mindel and her Manischewitz Mealtime Menus".
At the back table, 1 see Harriet Levinson who was recently awarded the title of "Career
Mother of the Year." She proves to the world that fame and family can mix. Harriet s
the nation's outstanding authority on the Preservation of the Polliwog. Standing at the
back is Art Wenzel, who has just returned from his fifteenth space flight toithe planet
Neptune. When asked for a statement, he rocked the national tourist trade with his pro-
found observation, "It's hard to breathe up there." Seated by the vase of hollihocks 'at
the table to my right is Pat Lovejoy, America's leading female ambassador to Afghanisf
tan, whose successful policy is, "To charm them, be charmingw.

Drawn, signed, and sealed this first day of April in the year of our Lord

Emerson College in Boston, Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

PHI ALPHA TAU
PHI ALPHA TAU, a National Honorary Speech
Arts Fraternity, was founded at Emerson Col-
lege in 1902 with the Alpha Chapter. The ob-
ject of P.A.T. has been to promote the frater-
nal fellowship and mutual helpfulness among
members and the development of true ideals
in the speech arts, within the school. This
was true during the past year when Phi Alpha
Tau sponsored a hayride in the Blue Hills, a
Carol Sing on Beacon Hill, a dinner, an alumni
Homecoming, and the highlight of the year,
thc joseph E. Connor Memorial Award given
to Bill Cunningham, noted radio commenta-
tor. The officers for 1953-54 were: Haig der
Marderosian, Rayisg Marshall Burday, Nayib
Rayisg Robert Moris, Katibg Willard Simmons,
Dabitg and Daniel Gillette, Sgt. of Arms.

bers of the fraternity. Congratulations to new

tor, and Zeta actives contributed to the tele-

year, will continue to uphold the high stand-
ards of speech arts at Emerson College.

THE EMERSON debating team proved themselves to he capable,
alert, and skillful speakers during the past year, winning honors
for themselves as individuals and for the college. Through our
Forensic Council, the name and fame of Emerson have been made
known in many sections ofthe country.
THROUGH HARD WORK and careful. planning of the Student Qeaders most in- B
terested, Scribe became a reaQity in December of l953. College spirit cer-
tainly contributed to this project. It provides a good outlet for the writing
talent in the college, and adds to the advantages of an Emerson education.
The student body and faculty have now accepted Scribe as a welcome addi-
tion to the other various organizations within the College. Scribe looks
forward to continued success on the firm foundation established during this

HEADED BY RONALD HALL, Znd semester Program Director, and
john McDuff, formerly Program Director and current Student
Advisor, the closed-circuit campus station of Emerson College
served once again as a training operation for underclassmen
broadcasting students, and as a source of listening pleasure for the
entire student hody. The highlights of the W E C B year were the
W E C B Benefit Party, which raised money for the purchase of
records, and the March of Dimes Marathon conducted by Ken
Lindenhaum and Russ Blood, earning a letter of commendation
from the lnfantile Paralysis Foundation. "This is W E C B-
Hrst in training and service."
w E R s
COMPARATIVELY LITTLE can be added here to what has already been
said about the progress achieved during the course of the last year,
progress which has increased the transmitting facilities of W E R S,
and.increased the presdge of due coHege. Tlne peopde pkxured
below are only some of those whose efforts and interests were
exerted in behalf of the station. And the full significance of our
remarkable achievements both here and in our television studio
development is yet to come. Thus the entire Emerson family
can look back with pride and ahead with bright anticipation to
greater, more effective communication.
THE VALUE TO therapy students and the gain in reputation for the
college can scarcely be overfestimated by the addition of our
speech clinic, fittingly named for Dr. Samuel Robbins. The efforts
of the Women's Committee to aid this most worthy of all enter-
prises can only be measured in the help and improvement which
the many patients of Boston and vicinity found here. Perhaps in
no other department within the school are the students so thor-
oughly prepared to meet the demands ofthe world beyond college
life. Students majoring in every field at Emerson have adopted a
family pride in this project ofthe speech department, the clinic.

CFFICERS or THE Junior Class for the year 1953-54 were: Dan Gil-
lette, Presidentg Vice-President, Ken Crannellg Claire Brown,
Secretaryg and Carlene Rogers, Treasurer. The main social event
of the college year was the annual Junior Prom held at the Parker
l-louse. This year the class instituted a new tradition at Emerson
in the form of a white gold tiara to be worn by the Prom Queen at
each succeeding junior Prom. Their fund-raising project, the sale
of Christmas cards, was a great success.
THE SoPHoMoREs, under the direction of john Nadeau, Presidentg
Lawrence Borzumato, Vice-Presidentg Secretary, Nan Whelplev,
and Mimi Cozzens, Treasurer, perpetuated the annual Sophomore
Dance which was started last year. Emerson can look forward to
a banner year ahead with these energetic classmates.

Cindy Crane, Secretary, and Alex Wolfson, Treasurer, led the
newest additions to the Emerson family during the past year. The
l d ' bl b their efforts in
freshmen distinguished themse ves a mira y y

5 Compliments of the
CLASS OF 1956
from Canto XIV
And the betrayers of language
. . .r and the press gang
And those who had lied for hire,
the perverts, the perverters of language,
the perverts, who have set money-lust
Before the pleasures of the senses,
howling, as of a hen-yard in a printing
the clatter of presses,
the blowing of dry dust and stray paper,
factor, sweat, the stench of stale oranges,
dung, last ass-pod of the universe,
mysterium, acid of sulphur,
the pusillanimous, raging,
plunging jewels in mud,
and howling to find them unstainedg
sadic mothers driving their daughters to
bed with decrepitude,
sows eating their litters,
here the placard
and here: THE PERSONNEL
