But first thy aid, oh Friend, who long hast loved Before all subjects else the Latin tongue, I pray: instruct me Cfor thou know'st it allj That I may paint the eternal Girton Girl, And justify the Ways of her to man, Say now how I, GIRTONIAN Board, asleep, Did dream a dream, and in that dream beheld The life of Girton spread out as a map, Most like indeed unto the underworld Of Hades: this Way then I saw my dream.

The path to Girton is a Stream of Tears, A wail of: "Styx, O, mournful, tearful Styx." Comes shuddering o'er its waters from the boat Whereon grim Charon, sometimes miscalled "Brand," To Girton's portal bears the student on, And claims his fee. And yet from o'er the rush Of tears down-splashing, sounds the loud lament Of souls that wander on the farther bank, And wail and gnash their teeth, and cry aloud: "Our names are on your lists-the Applicants Are we that wander ever on these banks, And plead to cross to fair Elysium." And still as to the portals wide we pass We hear afar their cries and tale of woe. But stop-by Pluto's dreaded power, What awful thing is this, that would fright hence The entering girl? A god he seems, in form, But that three heads he has of wondrous kind. The one hangs forth its tongue and for home-cooking Forever cries, another muttering growls: "Thou shalt" or "Thou shalt not," but mostly Knot." VVhile yet the third sheds bitter, silent tears And sometimes moans of friends and home and light. 'Tis Cerberus-he who guards the iron gates The faithful slave of Pluto and his power. But let not his three heads affright you hence From Girton's gate, far iiercer is his bark Than is his bite, press onward, brave of heart, A way there is, but cast this sugared cake To slake his hunger, this the boon they call Their Senior Privileges that they give To those who Elysium's joys and glories know. But now the spacious portal open lies And look: THE GIRTONIAN Freshmen MARION OSBORIXE Vice Presiden EILLEEN ARMSTRONG JULIE CAHN LUCILLE CALISCH MARGARET CLINCH ISABEL GILMORE RUTH JENKS ALICE LEEPER MARGARET IXQAHIN ISHBEL MACLEISH ONA MCEACHRAN ELSIE MEYERS JOSEPHINE NIOORE DOROTIfIY STANHOPE KATHERINE SPIEGEL STELLA TAYLOR CATHER1NE XVIGHTMAN - President and Treasurer - Secretary 1 THE GIRTONIAN The Children's land before me lies, Pale wasted shades Hit past my eyes And Hee away, Their backs they turn me as they go- Sad Children full of grief and woe- Yet once so gay! They tremble if a voice is heard, They shrink and shiver at a word With dropping tear, They try to tell me, whispering soft, How rough the path, and fearful oft- Their words I scarce can hear. "O turn, turn back to light of day! O turn you back while yet you may From bitter toil. For Furies in this desert dwell, Who spur us on with purpose fell With work our hands to soil!" Lo! as I gaze an awful form Swift drives them on like leaves in storm From out my view, They stretch their hands in suppliance wild But onward, weeping, goes each child, I turn to meadows new.

Midst these horrors that surround them On they go toward bright Elysium, E'er cheered by their gallant leader. 22 THE GIRTONIAN juniors KATHRINE BROWN - - President MARGARET BURKETT - - - - Vice President MILDRED GOOD - - Treasurer and Secretary RUTH ARNOLD LEOTA COLLINS ADELE FORBES KATHRYNE GREENE PAULINE LOUDERBACH FRANCES MUELLER ADELAIDE SEEBERGER ESTHER STEVENS HELEN WALKER EDITH WEIL 4 THE GIRTONIAN 2 5 Come! let us go to the Land of the Heroes Where wander the shades of the happier juniors! See how they struggle and strive, overcoming Latin and French, Ancient History and English. Doomed thus to labor through numberless ages Much must they learn, for great things are expected, And so they toil on, ever firm in their purpose. Foes have they conquered, more foes must they conquer, Tired are their faces, and weary their manner, And ever with wailing and loud lamentations Turn they to Elysium, that Land of the Blessed. 26 THE GIRTONIAN Seminar Students HORTENSE KITTLEMAN DOROTHY LENHAII Specials CHARLOTTE CRISMOND ADELINE GALLASCH MARGARET JENKINES VIRGINIA MILNER RUTH KIMBALL More wandering souls within the magic gates?

THE G1RToN1AN 33 The Trial in Elysium The Tract of Darkness spreads before my eyes, A weary waste, symbolic of the bleak And lonely road that all must traverse e'er They reach the land of Seniors, blissful goal, Elysium, with its fields of Asphodel. But now 'tis pastg I reach again the light. Across the gleaming plain there stands a Hall Most wondrous fairg I pass within its doors And find a countless host of Well-known Shades W'ho ever press about the central place. Lol on the dais high three judges grave Justice dispenseg the Principals are they, Who hear and give their verdict past appeal. To right there stands the Prosecutor stern And grimg his name is Facultyg his face No sign of pity or relenting shows. To left, the Genius of the Senior Class W'ith indignation and hot eloquence Defends each prisoner brought before the court. A stirring trial this-I join the crowd, When lol a clarion call cleaves thro the air: "Amy Larrowe, stand forth and hear the charge The Prosecutor makes." CAmy comes upj. 34 THE GIRTONIAN Amy Bell Larrowe PROSECUTOR-'XNllC1'CHS, firstly, Amy Larrowe has thought fit to place her interest in fiddling rather than in serious application to academic responsibilities, and whereas, secondly, she has absented herself for a long period of time in the third year of the reign of the Principals during the academic session in a manner prejudicial to the best welfare of the aforesaid institu- tion-be it hereby declared, stated and made known that the aforesaid prisoner is unworthy of being the shepherd of the Senior Class. A sudden clamor bursts from out the hall, The surging throng press forward, swift a Shade, The Marshall, with a bell, order restores. Then speaks th' combative Genius, filled with ire: "Oh, Prosecutor, cease your lengthy words, 'Tis worth, not adjectives, that wins this case. For look you, how with skilfulness and care This president has ever led her class, Behold the pitfalls ever near their feet- The by-path's easy, but the straight road's rough. Your Honors, all I crave is justice now." The Judges round them draw their regal robes, And frown in majesty their august brows, At length they speak, and on their words of doom The eager throng hang breathless, these the words: L'Defendant speaks the truth, and who shall cry For Justice in this court and be denied? Because of duties faithfully performed, Because of friendship's ties and wide demands, VVe here decree that you shall pass your days In leading onward in yet higher paths- Of Federated Women's Clubs the Queen." Cl-Exit Amyj w I I THE GIRTONIAN 37 Helen Louise Ball PRosEcU'roR-Next we shall have news of our friend, Helen Ball. If they can spare her a while from the second floor hall. CMuch giggling and laughter from without. Enter Helen Ball. At once the Judges are inspired by her happy-go-lucky way and her smiling countenance, as well as by many books under her arm.J JUDGES-Of you we have heard many things every day, As o'er school books and good times you hold a free sway, Your fate, we foresee, must lie in your Math., And ne'er will you leave the educational path. Louise Otis Now as I gaze, a maiden small Comes running thro the crowded hall, A platter held on high- "We've made some creams, They're perfect dreams, Oh, Judges, please to try." The Judges haste Her sweets to taste, And as those creams they eat, Their ternpers wild Grow very mild For, uml those creams are sweet. And e'en the Prosecutor stern Perforce his frown to smiles must turn And give of praise his meedg "Oh, fair Louise, be thine to cook Forever creams from candy book, And Anti-Suffrage lead!" 38 S THE GIRTONIAN Laura Nichols Scarce have the words of doom forsook his lips To hang portentous on the expectant air, Than forth there strides in dignity profound The Crier, and proclaims to all who list The name of Nichols, thrice he trumpets fourth When timidly a voice breathes from the floor- So hesitant and feeble more a sigh Than speech: "Is't time? Her clock, or e'en forsooth Her car"-"Yea, more than time," the stern reply. "She is not here, but later,"-"Late again F" As thunders deep a waterfall at dawn, Or banging doors reverberate thro halls Before a midnight feast, so swell the words Of Justice o'er the heavy-breathing throng. "Go, Sheriff, with search warrant, and arrest The tardy culprit." Brief is he, as e'er A current topic on a Tuesday morn. Dorothy Lee Bell Bell is the next of names called from without, And with much calmness, dignity and pride Strides forth the lady, head high in the air, And speaks in clear-cut, well-pronounced words: "Your Honor, here!" The Judges quite inspired, Know 'tis this lady, dignity and all, Who for her name has many honors won In "Twelfth Night" and in several other plays- But yea, more oft at musicales has shone. And then 'tis that they all speak forth at once And chant: "You are doomed to play and act Upon the stage-and even more we'd say: Society would be most incomplete Without your grace, your dignity and charm." I L THE GIRTONIAN 41 Jeanette Osborne Clark Jeanette hath paced into the hall And stoppeth hurriedly- "My time is short, my tasks undone, Now wherefore callst thou me ?" They hold her with their eagle glance- Jeanette-she standeth still, And listens Cthough with vacant eyes,-J The judges have their will. "In German, French, and Latin, too, You've passed the single year Which you to Girton have vouchsafed- Your doom you now shall hear. As language tutor you shall dwell In University, And German, F rench-and Latin too, You'll offer students-free." Emily Crane Russell Now slowly moving thro the gathering Shades Stately there steps with palette in right hand And pictured canvas in the other clasped, Fair Emily Russell with disdainful eyes. In awe the crowd shrinks back and leaves a path Unto the daisg calm, serene, and fair, She holds her way, till to the Judges' eyes She lifts her canvas-swiftly, while they gaze With spell-bound eyes and hearts in great amaze, E'er they can speak a word to hold her back, Or accusation make, or judgment give, She passes by and slips into the gloom. THE GIRTONIAN Florence Katherine Rehtmeyer Next: "Florence Rehtmeyer, stand you forth QThe busy Crier spake.D And as she comes applauding shouts From out the concourse break. With lordly stride and clanking sword In gallant court array, The mighty Duke Orsino comes Adown the narrow way. Then swift uprise the Judges three, With eager hands to greet The mighty actress as she comes Unto the Judgment seat. Then, "Welcome, welcome, Florence famed, Unto the trial here, Now stand you there, the while the charge Against you shall appear." And up then speaks the Accuser "The charge I here withdraw, But let your Honors judge her case With justice by the law." Then hesitation is there none, "Oh, Florence, go you forth- A brilliant actress shall you sway The world from South to Northf' THE GIRTONIAN 45 Ruth Marie Johanson With her head in a whirl, for she's much in demand, In comes busy Ruth, before Judges to stand. Prosecutor: "What are you, who are you, and what are your ways, And, pray, may we ask, have you any free days ?" Ruth: "Why, really, you know, I am Ruth, yes, just Ruth, And now that you ask, I must tell you the truth. As for school, why really that's out of my line, But they say that in breaking the rules here I shine." Judges: "You're doomed for your deeds for society grand, At cotillons and teas you'll be much in demand." Virginia Hopkins Sullivan CThere are heard exclamations of greeting at the door, and a girl enters attired in a new gown. The Judges look her over, especially the gown, and one murmurs, "Cunning Bunny," then protests sternly-J 3rd Judgwl do not recognize this girl, her face is strangely familiar, yet I cannot place it. Now what do you think?" 2nd Judge-My dear fellow-four years of inter- mittent acquaintance have so familiarized me with this countenance that I can now recognize it at a glance. Forsooth, it is Virginia Sullivan. CThe 3rd Judge examines her registration books and table lists and seems satisfiedj Ist Judge Cwith an introductory cough and a con- ciliatory mannerj-I should think then, as it is under- stood Miss Sullivan is an exception in her position as social representative in the outside world, that she might be made an ambassador's wife to intercede for our country in foreign lands. CThe Judges nod solemnly and Virginia retires.l 46 THE GIRTONIAN Grace Agnes Martin juncrzsz Away from your happy school days Where you always were merry and glad, Where your friendship, love and kindness Made us happy and never sad, Go, Grace, and as at Girton, Give your friendship so close and so dear To all that you meet in future times, And share it as you did here. Wilna Soverhill Then speaks a still small voice from out the hall And answers to the name of Soverhill, And Wilna, whom we all do love, comes forth, A wee brown maiden, with a friendly smile, She softly greets her judges and Accuser. "The fatal charge of which you stand accused, Unhappy Wilna, is dislike for rules- For Rules-the guiding star of Girton School." Thus speaks the stern accusing Faculty. But swiftly, fired with burning eloquence The Genius speaks: "Oh, Judges, have you heard The prisoner touch her charmed violin With magic fingers, drawing from its soul Such strains as bear aloft our burdened hearts To lap them in the wondrous air of heaven ?" He ceases, Wilna draws her magic bow Across the strings, such rapture fills the air As when afar one hears the heavenly choir. The judges bow their heads and speak with eyes In which bright dew-drops glisten: "Go thou forth, Oh, Wilna, with the enchanted violin, And woo the world to laughter and to tears l" Harriet Cuddaback Chapin CThere is a loud shout without the doors, which are suddenly flung wide, and a figure in jester's cap and bells skips lightly up the hall, singing at the top of her voice.D F THE GIRTONIAN 49 "O, heigho! A jester am I, And always I laugh or I cry With a heigho, O heigho, O hi! I shout and I dance with a spring And a somersault backwards I fling, While O heigho, O heigho I sing!" CShe turns a handspring on the edge of the dais, and as she sings, the faces of the Judges slowly relax until they are smiling broadlyj JUDGES-Hof all the defenses we've heard, Yours is clearly by far most absurd, Your behavior exceedingly queer, Yet, however, with tact and with wit On this suitable sentence we've hit: 'A hair-dresser's be your career'!" Marian Ruth Smith Now scarce these words have left their lips, when thro the pressing throng A maiden with a gentle frown the straight aisle moves along. The Prosecutor glares at her and speaks in angry tone: "And now, pray tell, O Marian, the cause, if it is known, Why you do always look so sad! Has your last friend been lost? For pity's sake be kind to us, and smile at any cost!', Then forth there breaks upon her face a smile that lights the hall, It seems as tho a thousand lamps do shine upon the wall. The Prosecutor's troubled face grows mellow in its glow, The Judges' gleam and ever seem more friendly yet to grow. The Genius speaks Cand rubs his handsj "Her smile is her defense! So now but say, your Honors, pray, what shall she do from hence?', An inspiration strikes a Judge, he gives a wise decree: "She shall go forth, from South to North, a Nursing Sister she." SO THE GIRTONIAN Abigail Von Schlegell PROSECUTOR-It seems 'twere but a month ago That Abby joined our class, So happy has she made us all, That merry, littleC?D lass, Her laughter, cleverness and Wit Add much to Girton School, And tho not good, yet she's not bad, And ne'er would break a rule. She really does not study much- She likes good times the best, And as for teas and balls and such She there can stand the test. And so along the old North Shore Good times she,ll make complete, And add to parties and to balls By her own presence sweet. Dorcus Orme Hoge The PRosEcUToR says: The When Dorcas had scarce passed her third glad year And her young artless words began to How, Her parents gave the child a mem'ry book, Her own, wherein she might go paste and show By note or trophy all her daily life. She pasted each hour's deeds-old fancies fond, And laughed and prattled o'er her memlry Book. And when she turned her steady learned eye To Girton-then she raised a joyous cry- For here were trophies new for those who seek, And so she purchased Girton lVlem'ry Books, And showed them to her friends who came to call JUDGE replies: Since you to memlry sacred vows have made, And nevermore your past life would forget, THIS GIRTONIAN 53 You need not bathe in Lethels lulling stream VVhose thought-obliterating wave would pain,- Pass forth, remembering all that has occurred, Into the outer world, with books on arm, Gleaned from your college days, tour ofer our land As salesman for a wondrous Mem'ry Book XVhose volume is as boundless as the seal fApologies to Turner., Isabel Burr Case I "Isabel Case, next comes your fate!" The Judges all cry in one breath, "A student you are both early and late, And will be so until death." II. "And also a leader of women we'll see Spreading knowledge both far and near, A writer of books and papers you'll be, And a critic too-that is clear." Eloise Taylor CRIER:-Eloise Taylor, stand forth! Cliloise mounts the platformj FACULTY1ThC fault of which we now accuse you Is this Cnor Justice we refuse youlz The Latin tongue is your infatuation, You love too well the learning of that nation. GENIUSLYOU do forget her popularity, Her friends are legion, her admirers everywhere, Her heart is full of gay hilarity, Her speech is golden and her frowns are rare. JUDGES-SOl her defense outweighs the Accuser's charge Our motto's Ujusticef' and our pity's large. Hundreds shall be her friends and proud her station, "Belle of the South" shall be her designation." S4 THE GIRTONIAN Rhoda Hecht Coming up the narrow pathway to the dais moves then Rhoda, Small is she with eyes that ever shine with brown lights on her comrades, Speaks the Genius at her coming with a smile of friendly greeting: '4Welcome here, O, best-loved Rhodaf, Then she tells unto the Judges how her head is full of learning, How she plays upon the banjo, how she does with skill her hemmingg- Much astounded at her wisdom, overcome by joyous wonder, Faculty withdraws his charges. Speak the Judges all together, 'mid a burst of eager cheering, Like unto the noisy tumult when vacation day an- nounced is, Verdict give: "O, worthy Rhoda, yours to hasten with your efforts, And your husband, Woman Suffrage!" Julie Murray Forrest Now thro the crowding Shadows There comes a stalwart form, A thrilling whisper runs before Like waves before a storm. "Hist, Julie, Captain Forrest, The girl who won the game! But keep it low, for don't you know, She's awfully shy of fame." And now the Judges from their seats VVith eager faces rise, They grasp her hand, while tears of joy Rain forth from out their eyes. I THE GIRTONIAN 57 "And are you then that julie Who led the senior team? If this be so, then swiftly go To drink of Lethe's stream. For all who drink of Lethe To Girton shall return, We need you sad, be our Post-Grad. And yet more knowledge learn." Marie Louise Carns Then 'mid laughter and great shouting Comes hdarie, another athlete, She the winner of all matches Played in tennis and in baseball, She the winner of the prize cup And of honors gained in sport plays. "She shall some day wear blue ribbons For the races in the roadsters Vlfon by her own sports-like manner," Speak the Judges to the people. Ruth Barbara jeffris Then forth there steps at sounding of her name, Ruth Jelfris, red-haired, fiery, with a tongue That rolls off reams of Greek, and round her neck A placard huge with "Votes for Women" writ, She tarries not for Accuser nor for Judge, But cries aloud: "You'd better pass me throg My head's chock-full of learning, you can bet! But now I'm busy, in a frightful stew, just let me out and watch to see me get!" The judges, gasping, smile and labor set: "Go thou to Greece and be a Suffragettef' 58 THE GIRTONIAN Elizabeth Harlow Beckler A ripple sweeps over the audience, A giggle is heard very near- A swirling of skirts and a clicking of heels, And Dolly appears in the rear. "Who are you P" the Judges all gasp in one breath "Who am I? I'm Dolly, you know, And though I'm not good, still l'm not very bad- And l'm not very old, but Illl growf' "We see," say the Judges profoundly impressed, "lt7s you who have warbled so long That merely from habit Cas well as good scnsej Your name is connected with song, "And so to the stage we would doom you for life, To warble by night and by day, To satisfy all of your cravings for fame There seems to be no other way." Marie Sarnmons The JUDGES speak: Slowly, gently, always smiling, Down the paths of radiant sunshine, Thro the groves of love and friendship, Gathering happiness and kindness, Has hlarie her whole life wandered. And to all her friends and school-mates Happiness and love has given, And so bright and glad has made them That we Judges send her onward To give love and her dear friendship To the homeless, needy children, To watch o'er with her sweet kindness All the sad and sickly children. E THE GIRTONIAN 61 Laura Nichols CThe speech is interrupted by an increasingly trouble- some tumult near the door, cries are heard of "Laura, Laurai'-the crowd parts, and an extremely well-dressed young lady advances to the front, bowing graciously and apologetically to her clamoring comradesj LAURA-I'm sorry,Judge-but moving-shall I sign? "Miss Nichols, thine the sin of tardiness In all thy deeds-in entering Girton late, In coming late each day to morning prayer- In themes-but since thy entrance tactful is, Thy hair and person decked in latest style, We doom thee to eternally late hours- QThe day's work of hair-dresser finishedj As social belle." He speaks, the mob takes up The words and bandies them about, and tells The tale Cwith variationsl later on, After the way of girls. Beatrice Ward King QA jaunty figure swings up to the stage with a golf- club over her shoulder, singing gailyj "Oh, I'm the golfing shark, You just ought to come for a lark! And of all information 'Bout school or the nation l'm full to the high water mark." FACULTY! Oh, Beatrice King, if I tried, I could find lots of facts for my side, On the whole I prefer To go where you were, Here, from envy, I just canit abide. Beatrice and the Faculty go out arm in arm. 1 - ff 'NT UDGME M., J I- X My , ll , f 9:1 E ,f1:5,1L, ..,f:-.sw 1 fix , 0 ,rfngiiffii A! ..-5 J! .:?g:I-ii: V . ... f f f ff '.f-f'M-:':!'fS- ff , -.: -. . , f ' --.U ' I -tgp: :,,?iS""e f . . ff f f : ": 4 fi ?'f'f':""::'f -T21 . ff f I f 1. -3-.: ff , I I 01 . ,QQFZ-225 I, - f f ll ' ' f 'f -zz-.-11-1'.-bSli?fi:2 4 ,I f fu, ----...-gL J., fzrzzzfzgfifsv-M ' fl X f I ,..::fQ.u----' K , 5.ZZIllO!

It is impossible to hear oneself think. Slowly the crowd passes out thro the doors by which I entered and I am left alone in the deserted hall. I turn to the farther doors, and hastening out, see in the distance the dim figures of those who have just received sentence. THE GIRTONIAN 65 As I pass along the dim highway, pressing forward, eager to overtake these distant Shades in their journey onward, a voice calls me from behind. I turn and see a figure hastily approaching, intent, as she comes, upon a large scroll which she holds in her hand. She greets me with a warm, friendly smile, and eyes that twinkle behind her glasses. At once I feel an almost irresistible desire to confide to her all the history of my journey through the Other NVorld, certain that she will share my sorrows as well as my joys. But as I seek for words to begin, she holds out to me the scroll saying: MFor- sooth, O Pilgrim, lo and behold!" And thus I read: 66 THE GIRTONIAN The Girton Alumnae Association, Old and New THE Girton Alumnae Association, which began so enthusiastically five years ago, came to a quiet and peaceful end last spring. The reasons for the unexpected result-deplored chiefiy by the faithful few who were struggling to hold the association to- gether-were apparently many, but in the mind of the writer of this article they were really one. Inevitably when a girl leaves school a multiplicity of interests demands her attention, each one more or less signifi- cant and vital in itself. Her life may be lived in college or at home, but if she is a true daughter of Girton she will have more opportunities for self-expression than possibilities of fulfilling the manifold demands made upon her time and strength. She must choose those activities which seem to her most worth while, and to them give of her time. The fate of the Girton Associa- tion was then the common fate of most Alumnae Asso- ciations-it did not offer a vital enough reason for its existence. The members who were in and near Chi- cago met once a year for luncheon during Christmas week-the busiest Week of all the year-for social pur- poses only. At this meeting officers for the ensuing year were elected, dues were solicited, and the meeting adjourned. It is not surprising that those members who live near Chicago could not kindle much enthusi- asm, first in themselves, and then in those at a distance, merely by trying to keep alive a sentiment for Girton School. Therefore the decision was made by those few who could be prevailed upon to -state an opinion, that by its own act the Girton Alumnae ,Association should cease to exist, and thus make way for the for- mation of another association which should be able to cope with the acknowledged difficulties of the situation, with a liberal enough constitution to make it possible THE GIRTGNIAN 67 for the association to develop along new lines. Mem- bers of the old association were to be asked to become members of this new one, and, profiting by the experi- ence of the past, would help to make this organization a stronger one. Enlarged activities would, it was hoped, serve to give permanence to the happy friend- ships of Girton school days, and to enhance, not to detract from, the pleasure of the social gatherings that characterized the old association. And so the new Girton Alumnae Association was formed. The time was opportune, for the class best fitted to carry Gir- ton's standard was ready and willing to be the nucleus of the new society-the class of 1911. This class was the largest Girton had ever graduated, and its members were most loyal and devoted to each other and to the school. Through their aid as charter members of this association, Girton expects much from its alumnae. Although both organizations were formed solely at the instance of Girton Alumnae, they have had from the Hrst the hearty approval of the school authorities, and this for several reasons. A school or college can have no greater asset than a group of loyal graduates. You, who are our graduates, represent us in the eyes of the world. By the honor which comes to you, we are honored. VVith time and with distance you have gained a clear perspective of the school and its value. You who know us best can help us best to make Girton into the school you and we wish it to be. Upon your counsel given collectively through the medium of the Alumnae Association, we at Girton feel that we have a right to rely. We are trying to make Girton a factor in the larger education of the girls who come to us. We look to you, Girton girls and women, for most helpful and practical advice. "You have borne the burden"- you "have earned the honor." 4, MARY MEYLERT RICHARDSON. The following letter was sent by the chairman of the Alumnae Committee, Katherine Mclvlullen, to the class of 1912. The first regular meeting of the Asso- ciation will probably be held during Commencement 68 THE GIRTON IAN week at Girton. At that time the new constitution will be voted upon and ofiicers elected for the next year. VASSAR COLLEGE, POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y., MARCH 21, 1912. To THE CLASS or 1912 or GIRTON SCHOOL, FROM THE CLASS or 191 1- As chairman of the committee appointed for the re- organizing of the Girton Alumnae Association, I wish to invite you all to become members of our new asso- ciation. This is of course your right as graduates of Girton, and we certainly want you to join with us in our endeavor to retain, even after leaving, some con- nection with our school, and to make our interest in Girton of some real aid and benefit. To those of you who do not intend to continue your school life this will be especially interesting, yet the girls who go on to college will, I know, want to keep in touch with their preparatory school. There is another side which will appeal to you all very much, and that is the splendid opportunity you will have through the medium of this association, to keep in touch with the girls whom you have learned to know so well, and who, because they live in some distant city, will be separated from you after this year. The fact that the old association had been given up came as a surprise to all of us last year, when we were asked to reorganize, and to become charter members of the new association. As this request came just in the midst of graduation week we could take no immediate step for organization, and our action has been long delayed, but now that there is once more a Girton Alumnae Association we do hope that you will all be- come members of it. Membership is attained by reading and signing the constitution. Some time during graduation week there will be an opportunity for you all to do this. Hoping that you will feel the interest in the endeavor for a closer cooperation with Girton after student days are past, which we feel, believe me, KATHERINE IVICIVIULLEN. THE GIRTONIAN 69 just as l finish reading, a voice calls her away, and I go forward thoughtfully, on my journey. Suddenly from a by-path at my right comes a small, compact form, with a sweet smile, soft voice, and a "Bonjour ma chere amid" Then lapsing into English she begins to read aloud to me the following words: W'hen the Knollslea halls are stacked with great hampers of swords, wigs, riding-boots, court robes, and cassocks, we know that "the play's the thing" at Gir- ton-and rather more "the thingi' this moonlight night of earlyjune, than when the conning of the lines began in gloomy February. Every member of every cast will tell you that there are special feelings these play nights, which come from the blackness of behind-the- scenes, the silence of the deserted halls, and the con- fusion of the make-up room. Viola is sure that her friends have missed the train. Maria is rummaging through everyone's bureau drawers looking for the bonnet she asked Sir Toby to put away. All the court ladies are wondering at the magic touch which transformed last yea1"s friar into this year's duke. The shadow of a Beatrice is crying out for a Benedick who should be there "for just those first lines Where we come in together, please." And can that whisking sprite be little Puck? Or is it Hero practising her swoon? Heigh hol She's gone! But here is Malvolio, who strides and struts and wonders if any- one has just one more hairpin to lend him. But once out in the starlight, under the canopy of leaves and vines, the girls know that no night of all their Girton schooldays has more of joy and satisfaction than this night of the Shakespere play. They sup- press their excitement in their eagerness to achieve the purpose of the masterful lines. Each girl endeavors to make her friends know the personality of the character she is portraying. And afterwards, when the guests have gone, when the Chinese lanterns have burned out, when Knollslea is fragrant with the breath of flowers which the Juniors 70 THE GIRTONIAN in endless procession, bring to the hallg when the last tired courtier has trailed in from the blackness of the hollow her unaccustomed sword and cloak, forget- ting not a moment the traditional morning wrath of the mistress of the costume hamper-then comes this last sort of feeling: perfect compensation for days of work and application, a mild relief that the play is done, and a strong desire to do it right over again.

The field soon became crowded with girls and teachers who walked impatiently around in twos and threes or called to the girls gathered around the upstairs windows of Knollslea. Soon the girls who were to be the heroines of the day, rushed out from the building bundled up in sweaters, and very much excited over the important parts they were to play. lt was the last day of the basket-ball tournament and the struggle between the two strongest teams, the Senior and Sophomore, was to be a hard one. The referee blew the shrill whistle which meant the beginning of the end, and the excitement became intense. The ball was thrown up between the centers, and first one side had it and then the other. The first basket was made by the Seniors amid loud cheering. When the first half Was finished, the girls, upstairs in the windows, leaned eagerly out and congratulated the Hushed players. When the second half started not a sound could be heard from anyone but the girls who were playing, as they ran and fell in their efforts to make the ball drop into the little round nets, and after each vain attempt the fans gave advice as to how it should be done, and encouraged them for the next time. Finally the end came, too soon for the excited spec- tators, but welcomed by the breathless and tired ten who had fought so valiantly for the honor of their classes. The score was announced, six to two, in favor of the Seniors, and then the class yells on all sides showed no lack of class spirit. The victors were very proud of their victory, but admitted not regretfully that it had been won only after a hard battle. M. S. ,I2 78 THE GIRTONIAN just as I hnish, a bell rings loudly and the crowd vanishes, leaving me utterly alone. After a time I turn from the broad, straight highway into the narrow, shadowy Path of Memory. As I go, musing, suddenly in a dark spot I stumble and lind my Way obstructed by a great book. VVhen with much labor I have drag- ged it out into the light, I see that it is the "Student Life at Girtonn that has caused my downfall. I open it eagerly and slowly these memories come back to me.

In four years, time I'll be so wise That every one with eager eyes Wvill hark to what I say. In four years' time-how long it seems, And yet how swift it goes- I'll be grown up with skirts let down With spectacles and thoughtful frown Upon my learned nose. In four years' time, when I'm eighteen Oh, venerable age! A stately senior then I'll be, Departed then my infancy, A scholar and a sage. ln four years' time, in cap and gown, I'll be a graduate, XVith Hsheep-skin" armed, in life I'll start With vast conceit and hopeful heart, To learn my unknown fate.

Take books out of the library and tear as much as possible, or perhaps Write in them. It will make it more interesting for the next girl. Borrow books at all times: the students do not use them. Their return is not neeessary. Talk as mueh as you like in the Study Hall. The teacher is there to prevent any lull in the conversation. Stull' paper in the desks or drop it on the Hoof, as we desire to keep the waste-paper baskets empty and elezm. V. M. 82 THE GIRTONIAN CONFESSIONS OF THE BULLETIN BOARD Vlfhat would the school do without me, even tho I am one of the later institutions and understand I have a rival on the door-jamb of the assembly upstairs? lXfIy post is in an advantageous position and affords me the most varied interest each day, for right next to me is the Principal's oHice. VVhat sardonic chuckl- ing I sometimes hear during Faculty Conference in that room, and again, with what dejected looks do some victims come forth from the same place! I've heard rumors that the Heads are mighty hard to per- suade! lVIy poor face is generally so plastered with inter- esting notices that I have great difficulty in seeing all that goes on. For instance, once a year there is a lively tennis tournament, due reports of which are always posted. Then, usually on cold days, when a list for ball practice is put up, how the monotony of age-old, dust-gathering notices is varied, for the loud bewailing of each new reader draws me from my ennui! Once a month, too, some worried persons viciously stick up "Dues must be in by the I5th," and I smile knowingly, for before long some maiden will come gaily up, and it will be, "Again! I can't save a cent!" Late in the year I hear much talk of a GQGIRTONIAN7, and "Board lVIeeting,' and then I look down with pity on the "Knocks Box" below meg there it hangs so for- lornly, pleading for just one joke to keep up its former prestige and the custom, in accordance with the strong feeling I hear of ''We've-always-done-so-ness''at Girton. But it's growing late, for the Busy Man across the hall, with all the books and papers, is going home. "Mon Dieu," how the draught from the door has chilled me till I'm numb! B. K., '12, Y' i 'Y .vrv THE GIRTONIAN 83 SPRING FEVER Spring Fever is a contageous disease. School chil- dren from the age of six to eighteen years may be subject to said disease. It is caused by sudden changes of climate, and it produces strange effects in various individuals. The most common effect on the average person is a cheery countenance, the inability to do his work, lack of vitality, a sudden love for sunshine and the out-door world, and an inconquerable insomnia. Leicester Hall is affected in a strange manner. The beds are moved to different positions in the rooms, blanket pennants are removed from the Walls, clean curtains are put up, books are forsaken for tennis, baseball, and long Walks, and the thoughts of exami- nations are banished from the minds of all for a time in order to enjoy properly the weather. The only cure for this malignant disease is a vaca- tion of several weeks from all work. This has been agreed upon by the most prominent physicians as having the most permanent effect on all people suffer- ing with Spring Fever. W. S., ,I2. THE GIRTONIAN THE MIDNIGHT FEAST My little watch told 'twas twelve o'clock, The appointed hour had come, I reached the door and turned the lock- But oh! what a noise it made, it made, But oh! what a noise it made! The stairs made more noise that awful night Than they ever had before, I stepped so lightly, but try as I might- Oh, what a noise I did make, did make! Oh, what a noise I did make! At last I reached my destiny And ate 'till I thought I'd burst! Then all said "goodnight," and left stealthily- But oh! what a noise we had made, had made, But oh! what a noise we had made! I slipped in descending the stairs so steep, And lit, with a very loud thump, At the foot of the stairs, in a tumbled heap- But oh! what a noise I had made, had made, But oh! what a noise I had made! It was over now for best or for worst, I had reached my downy pillow, It was over-that feast, which had been my first But oh! what a noise I had made, had made, But oh! what a noise I had made! I. MCL., ,I4 ' THE GIRTONIAN 85 A SUNDAY Saturday had been a busy day-of course they were all tired. A week of such strenuous work was enough to tire anyone, so the Virgil students told us, after they'd struggled heroically over their usual fifty lines. But to awaken on a rainy Sunday morning and to be informed by a few breakfast-faithfuls that unless it cleared off-awful thought-there would be no church -whose spirits wouldn't rise? For this would mean another nice morning chat in bed with roommates or visiting neighbors. Fate and the sun were against them. Word came around that there should be full church attendance that morning, so the girls grumblingly tumbled out of bed, or were pulled out by obliging friends, after waiting about fifteen minutes to become thoroughly awakened. For it was ten o'clock and who could expect these hard- worked victims of overstudy to be awake at that un- heard of hour? Wonders! What is this brilliant plan? Now that we have to go, we might at least have a little excite- ment out of it. Busy minds get together, little by little the threads of the plot are woven. One wild scream, followed by laughing, too loud to be exactly proper, brings the rest of the hall, tripping the light fantastic over laundry bags and trays carelessly set outside the doors, to the scene of action. More laughter and mysterious moving around, stifled giggles and hurryings up and down steps, enough to astonish any one ignorant of the future. And when the bell rang, such a sight-words fail to describe it-as greeted the eyes of the long-suffering teacher, as this body of inspired Muses presented them- selves! Tall girls in small girls' coats, and a display of vivid color such as would blind the eye, jaunty rib- 86 THE GIRTONIAN bons pinned coquettishly on queer shaped hats--who said these girls had an eye for color? "My dear-of all rare mortals! Did you ever see anyone like it? Will you just look here? I hope we look cute!" said one to another as she splashed through a small lake of water, regardless of consequences and a pair of watchful eyes following closely. Is it necessary to say that one 'Umongst this madding crowd" did not approve of this garb and such unseemly conduct? An accusing glance met all eyes turned in her direction. I would not like to state here how much good was received from the sermon. But this I know: From all reports I have heard, it was one of those times which make school girls feel that life is worth living even on a rainy Sunday. H. B. 712. THE GIRTONIAN 87 LATIN I.

I thought the screen was in, and nearly fell out myself. How shall I get it? I'll get caught if I get out and I'm not crazy about walking around in the mud with my new bedroom slippers on." "Go down and climb out Elsie's window,"I suggested. "Bright idea, come on," and we both ran downstairs and went into Elsie's room. She was studying-which was something of a phenomenon-and informed us that her roommate had wearied of her company, and gone in search of adventure. Dot climbed out the window, rescued the pillow, and started to get back in, when she slipped in the mud and sat right down, and in her best kimona too! "Ouch, I've scratched my arm," she wailed from the mud puddle. "Well, hurry up, and don't stop to talk about it," observed Elsie, "there goes the bell now." We hurried upstairs and Dorothy, with a melan- choly air, took off her ruined kimona, laid the muddy pillow on the window seat, and we both went to bed. We had no sooner reached the study hall next morn- ing, than a girl came tearing up to Dot and burst upon us with an avalanche of words. "IVIy dear, I've just heard about it! I think it's perfectly miraculous! I should think you'd have been killed! I suppose you landed on the pillow, tho. Why, my dear, I heard of a boy who fell out of a window and wasn,t hurt at all, but I never believed it until now. Oh my dear! Did you scratch your arm? What a shame! Peg, oh Peg," she cried to a day girl who had just come, "Have you heard about Dot? My dear, she fell out the second story window over at Lei- cester last night and Wasn,t hurt at all except a scratch on her arm. Isnit that the rarest thing you ever heard P' "No, did you, Dot? You're stufiing us!" exclaimed the day girl with an incredulous gasp. THE GIRTONIAN 89 "What did I hear about Dorothy Parker?" cried a voice from the other side of the room. But just then the bell rang and everyone became quiet for a While. We heard of nothing else except Dot's fall, all morning. Notes flew back and forth during study hour and by recess everyone in school knew a good deal more about the affair than Dot and I. Needless to say we said nothing to spoil the story. Dot exhibited her scratched arm and muddy kimona to any curious girl who couldn't quite believe the story without proofs, and I described the variety of feelings with which I saw my roommate disappear into the darkness. Elsie told how she had heard a dull thud outside the window and how, upon her looking out, this white robed figure sat up exclaiming, "Ouch, I scratched my arm." The second night after the "fall," Miss Prescott sent for Dorothy and me to go down to her room. "Dorothy," she began severely, when we had gone in trembling, "what is this absurd story about your falling from the window?" Dot began to giggle and couldn't stop, so Miss Prescott turned disgustedly to me. "May," she said sternly, "can you tell me the meaning of this ?" Finallyl managed to explain the facts and when I had finished she gave us a stern lecture on deceit and hypocrisy. "I shall inform the girls in the morning of this," she concluded, "I have no sympathy with prac- tical joking." As soon as we were dismissed we Went to Elsie's room. "Elsie Smith," cried Dot, "what do you mean by get- ting that story all over school? I guess Illl stay in bed tomorrow morning." t "Why,I didn't tell anybody you fell out the Win- dow!" said Elsie indignantly. "lN'Iarjorie, will you tell me just what I said that night?" "Why, you said, Dotls pillow fell out the window and she went after it. My dear, oh no, my dear, you weren't stufling me? My dear! E.

Q2 THE GIRTONIAN At this particularly vivid memory I close the book with a bang and look up. Before me I see a steady stream of Shadows entering a door at the end of the Path of Nlemory. I follow them and find myself in a theater with the curtain just rising inscribed with the words: "Miss MILLER-A COMEDY."

Tulliver's lawsuit in the "Nlill on the Floss"-"Mr. Tulliver lost his suit and could not come downstairs until January." LOUISE Woon in English-"Poe's mother and father were actresses." Miss NIILLER, explaining the difference between a suffragist and a suifragette, said-c'You know, girls, sulfragettes are those women who are very narrow- minded in regard to women's rights, they often cause riots in the streets, lire stones thro windows, and forget that they are ladies, while sullragists are very broad- minded and never behave themselves in an unladylike wayfl-Silence.

Q4 THE GIRTONIAN When I come out of the theater dazed by the won- drous things I have just heard, and with my head in a whirl, I am in the midst of a great wood. In the distance I hear blows and loud shouts and peals of laughter. I hurry on, and enter a very busy scene. Familiar faces Hit past my eyes, my ears are full of familiar voices. These are some ofthe snatches I catch of laugh-interrupted conversation: Miss DAY-"What land did the English still have in France?" ADELINE GALLASCH Cdoubtfullyj-"Scotland" KATHERINE SPIEGELQ-ICOHC characteristic of the Tudor kings is that they could marry as many times as they wanted to."

ISABEL CASE, chaperoning the Seniors home from Miss Richardson's, handing the conductor a ten-ride ticket,-"Eleven young ladies, please." Miss FELLoWs,working a problem in Algebra T. B- ciGlFlS, how much is nine times six ?" THE GIRTONIAN 97 More dazed than ever I slip quietly out of the wood by a Well-worn path. Before me is a great wall reach- ing up almost as far as eye can see, but directly in front of me there stands wide open a broad golden gate that gleams in some bright light beyond, and thro which passes a long stream of Shades that reaches back ap- parently endlessly. As each goes forth thro the great gate in the golden light, she is handed a scroll. I slip into the line and receive a scroll also and when I have passed out the gate I read it as I go. 98 THE GIRTONIAN September 21-School begins. Everybody "fresh."
