Students and faculty members interested in the development of poetry and the reading of contemporary verse formed a permanent organization which met once a month to study. Gradually, the reading of poetry became the main activity. Realizing that the name was too long, the group changed it to the Robinson Club. At first Carrie Belle Parks Norton acted as sponsor, but for several years Ruth Knowles assumed the responsibilities until work called her away from this posi- tion. When Marjorie Gullan of London visited in the spring of 1937, a group interested in choral reading organized the present Robinson Reading Choir. The interest of this new group was at first a private one devoted to enjoying and appreciating poetry by reading it chorally, but as the choir became popular, public appearances were demanded. This year the choir per- formed at a vesper service and a junior high-school assembly. At the weekly meetings the choir studied, under the direction of Mrs. Norton, poems and ballads taken primarily from Miss Gullan ' s book, " The Speech Choir " ; however, it prepared special selections: W. H. Davies ' " Leisure " and John Mase- field ' s " West Wind, " two excellent poems for lengthy vowel sounds, and Markham ' s " The Man With the Hoe, " chosen purposely for the vesper program because of its religious and social significance. Usually the choir started rehearsals with counting-out rhvmes, nursery rhymes, and vowel vocalizations. Although William Rose Benet ' s " Jesse James " was not per- formed, it was the choir ' s favorite selection for relaxation and humor. Perhaps the greatest advancement of the choir was the addi- tion of male voices. Not only did these voices add power, but they helped break down the prejudice felt by many who con- sider poetry choirs absurd. 102

New students and facult members were welcomed to the Home Economics Department at the September outing at the School Lodge. To facilitate the getting-acquainted process each upperclassman brought her little sister. Here Miss Helen Rose and Mrs. Thclma E. Lappen, new staff members, were intro- duced. The following month freshmen were initiated into the club with the impressive candlelight service. The Home Economics Conference, held during the morning of Homecominii Dav, was lartielv attended bv alumnae and friends of the college. Home economists from manv schools at this conference heard Mrs. Anna G. Green, Chief of Home Economics Education in Pennsylvania. The annual Freshman-Sophomore Banquet was held at the Indiana Country Club. The favors, centerpiece, and dance pro- grams were in keeping with the Thanksgiving season. That evening Dr. Sanders spoke to the girls on the subject " Where Arc We Going in Home Economics? " At the Christmas season the club dressed dolls and packed baskets for needy people. At the club ' s Christmas party an amusing scene from " The Birds ' Christmas Carol " was pre- sented by members directed by Sylva Wixson. Tempting odors of the May Day Breakfast brought members to this annual morning meeting. With the spring social activi- ties also came Junior-Senior Merry-Go. At the State Convention of Home Economists, at Phila- delphia in Mav, Indiana was represented bv several faculty members and students. Marion Wills of this facultv was a co- chairman of the Student Clubs Committee.

It is not honorary; to retain mem- bership each person must contribute original work. To main- tain a balance between inexperience and maturity, each college group has active faculty members. Quill is non-secret and non-fraternal. Its nomenclature and ritual are based upon Anglo-Saxon culture. Admission is by original manuscript submitted anonymously. Ger Rune, the local chapter, was admitted to membership in 1930. Since then Ger has been one of the most active runes. Annuallv Ger publishes Scroll which voices the outpourings and protests of youth; this publication is widelv distributed on the Indiana campus. The national organ of Quill is Parchment which publishes manuscripts submitted by the fourteen runes. This opportunity is open to all undergraduates as well as to members of Quill. The magazine is intended to be truly representative of under- graduate writers throughout the nation. Last summer Reba N. Perkins, National High Scribe, and three members of Ger attended the national convocation held at Kansas State College, Manhattan, Kansas. Ur Rune, as hosts, presented several speakers, one of whom was Kirk Mechem, author of the play " John Brown. " Hamlin Garland, an honor- ary member, expressed his regret at being unable to attend. Dr. Perkins entertained the group at ther house this fall, at which time reports from the convocation were given. The founder of Quill, Dr. Hopkins of Kansas University, was present at the lirst initiation cf this year. A ritual, dignified and impressive, recently prepared by Dr. Hopkins, was used by him in conducting the ceremony held at Mrs. Macdonald ' s house. Officers for the vear were Paul Glebovich, Chancellor; Mrs. Helen F. Egleston, Vice-Chancellor; Charlotte Stidham, Scribe and Keeper-of-the-Parchments; and Evelvn Aten, Warden of the Purse.
