0f Girton life as seen by mindful eyes
Of Faculty and students, gay alumns,
Winnetka women, and o'er-fond mamas,
I sing: this verse to Ignorance is due.
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 GIRTONIAN I3
Oh Traveller, in whose breast stirs deep desire
To gaze upon these regions of the School,
To share their joy or hear their sad laments,
A scene of woe at first before thee lies.
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
MARION OSBORIXE Vice Presiden
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.
- - - President
- - - - Vice President
- Treasurer and Secretary
Next there come Fields of Ambition,
Fields wherein are toiling Sophomores
Striving always upward, upward,
Up the steep heights of Ambition,
But as often as they near them
Down they fall into that black gorge,
The abyss of dismal failure.
ln this world of gloom and darkness
All are struggling with some terror,
Some are fighting hard with Caesar,
In his Gallic wars with Caesar,
Others struggling o'er quadratics,
Surds, binomials, and equations,
Dues, more dues, are all about them,-
NVith perspiring brow their treasurer
Pleads, exhorts them on to payment.
Midst these horrors that surround them
On they go toward bright Elysium,
E'er cheered by their gallant leader.

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
More wandering souls within the magic gates?
Yea, these are those-the Specials-roaming here
Who know not where to go nor whom to seek.
Alas, existence cold, forlorn, and drearl

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."
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
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
Your fate, we foresee, must lie in your Math.,
And ne'er will you leave the educational path.
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
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."
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
So now but say, your Honors, pray, what shall she do
An inspiration strikes a Judge, he gives a wise decree:
"She shall go forth, from South to North, a Nursing
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:
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
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
"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."
"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."
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
Coming up the narrow pathway to the dais moves then
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
'4Welcome here, O, best-loved Rhodaf,
Then she tells unto the Judges how her head is full of
How she plays upon the banjo, how she does with skill
Much astounded at her wisdom, overcome by joyous
Faculty withdraws his charges.
Speak the Judges all together, 'mid a burst of eager
Like unto the noisy tumult when vacation day an-
Verdict give: "O, worthy Rhoda, yours to hasten with
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.
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."
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.
THE GIRTONIAN 61
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."
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.

64 THE GIRTONIAN
A great clamor breaks out, all talking at once, until
their shouts re-echo under the vaulted roof of the Judg-
ment Hall. 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
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,
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 o1RToN1AN 77
STUDY hour was over with and from West Hall
all the girls came walking hurriedly toward the
basket-ball field, talking excitedly and calling to
those who walked leisurely to hurry up or they would
miss the first of the game. 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
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

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

it eagerly and slowly these memories come back to me.

In four years, time I'll be so old
I know I shall be gray.
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.

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-
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!

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.

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!

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
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
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.

SPREADING NEWS AT GIRTON
"My dear," cried my roommate from the window-
seat, "there goes my pillow. 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

"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
"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-

dow!" said Elsie indignantly.

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."

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
ADELINE GALLASCH Cdoubtfullyj-"Scotland"

realizing a certain inadequacy, "That is-um-I m-m-

painfully patient tone from Miss Richardson elicits the
following triumphant answer, "I mean the perfect."
Literal-JEANETTE CLARK in Virgil-"A star slipped
carrying a tail."
The expressman asked Lucile if she wanted to place
a value on her trunk.
LUCILE-"Why, yes, I guess so."
EXPRESSMAN-CCHOW much ?"

Miss FELLoWs,working a problem in Algebra T. B-

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.
