DR.1ELI(1 CFOBD FOREWORD On a medieval manor the sun-light glistened over the great castle tower — impenetrable, majes- tic, supreme. The earth itself seemed submissive to the lordly grandeur of height and power. From the height one could smell the fragrant mellow- ness of ripe fields where workers toiled indus- triously on the rich harvest. The tower was their possession. Sweet memories clung to it, unknown to some. Men drew comfort from its very loftiness and dignity. It meant life to them — the flowing vital radiance of truth, beauty, and goodness. We of the twentieth century have our tower of strength. The unchanging, faithful face of our College Tower holds the record of both memor- able and insignificant days. It overlooks the petty distresses of dark hours and smiles on the achievement of weeks of work and happiness. We gather about it each memorable time of the year — with our class on the first Colors ' Day, in our caps and gowns amid the sadness of farewell and the glory of achievement of Commencement Day. To us it will ever be the symbol of our Alma Mater, of the happiness of our Under- graduate days. It will ever be the symbol of Life itself — the tower of strength, youth, beauty, and knowledge, standing " four-square to all the winds that blow. " The Class of 1926 presents to _ -ou this book, the history of a year at M. D. C. centered around Merrill Hall Tower.

As they make the campus fair; Each class knows, As the season goes, That her color ' s shining there. In the spring comes the purple crocus, Yellow in the leaves of fall; The red and the green. On the tower are seen. And the flower beds hold them all. Here the sk ' is brightest. As the whole wide world can see. For the royal hue of our college blue, E " er shines o ' er M. D. C. CLASS SONG From far and near we tra ' el, From cities great and small, To this our chosen college, The best among them all. For her we seek all honors, Against all foes we ' ll stand, V ' ith utmost faith and courage, In all she may demand. Traditions do we cherish, Ideals we hold most dear. For every hall and tower. We give a rousing cheer; For our beloved college We ' ll ever onward strive, And for the royal purple And the class of ' 2 si LUCK ' S HORSE-SHOE— 1925 The sun dial on the tower, Of dear old Merrill hall, Records but sunny hours On ivy-covered wall. The breezes thru the tree tops Waft sounds of laughter bright, And all the world surrounding. Breathes happiness and light. The sun beams in their rovings. Lie here thru all the da}% And with their friendship ' s fairies On luck ' s own horse-shoe play. Here gargoyles smile benignly. The blue bird builds its nest. For happiness and service. Make college dai, ' s the best. COLLEGE!— 1923 College, we raise a cheer for you. College, we bring our love anew. To friend and foe we will praise j-our name, Where e ' er we go we will spread your fame; College, for you we ' ll ever try. Your name to glorif) ' , And we ' ll always be true.

Elizabeth Meyers M E T A INI (3 R P H O S I S Or,ce I was a little worm, My hue was brightest green; I crawled upon the ground so hard, The hardest ever seen. Other creatures big and tall Did tease me all the day; They made my life a misery, And ne -er went away. For one long year I suffered on, To do what I was told, To be polite and never act As if I were so bold. But summer came and I did spin Around my self so small A grey cocoon of silky threads And thus I slept " till fall. Then one bright day I broke my bonds And started forth anew. No longer was I a crawling worm But a winged thing that flew. I slowly moved my colored wings Until they were quite dry. And then away I winged my flight Into the azure sky. Among the moths of yellow and red. And violet so fair, I flew and soared and lit at night On a shamrock waiting there. Grace Geerlings %ii«mm v Wfi m mw f« M OX MIST Moonlight, misty, silvery. Streamed through the slim white birches. Gilded each leaf with silver. Tipped with pale mist the crests Of tiny waves that laughed softly. Broke — and rippled up the stony beach. High up on a white rock, ghostly bright, I sat and watched a fairy Slide gaily down a moonbeam. And float, on white foam, down the stream. Louise Clark THEIR THOUGHTS AND MINE I like to think, When I am outdoors on a spring night. That those at home see what I see; The pale, cool moon. Floating in and out of the clouds; Are they looking, too, and wondering? And do they feel The night air ' s breath upon their faces. Fanning them, and making them weary? Does it seem to them That they are overcome with fragrant odors. And still wildly full of life? Do they shudder When they hear the night bird ' s trill- ing cry? Perhaps if I were home Fd like it; But just now. It makes me think of all the miles that lis between. That mournful sound in this spring night. I wonder, too. If they are thinking thoughts that I am. Thoughts that awake my mind on balmy nights; And I am glad That spring has come to them as softly As it floated in to me. Olga Folda i ' m4 UA : ) i!

For if you should try to glance around, You see those books-on every side. You want to read, and still you can ' t; There are always lessons to which i.ou are tied. Mien a book once calls in its silent way, You can ' t just turn aside and work On the lesson that really must be dons; It ' s better for once to play the shirk. And to turn and take it down from the shelf, And settle down to spend the day. To truly enjoy yourself for a time And to see what the book might have to say. A book has a mighty appeal for us all.

C . A Cii mijxx As the year 1924-1925 comes to a close, one realizes that it has been an es- pecially full one for V. ' . C. A. Many forward steps have been taken, and many new and unusual features have been added to the accustomed work of our or- ganization. Tiie first part - of the school year is always given b - liic . . This is an all college affair given for the purpose of getting acquainted. Last fall the Y. W. party was unusually successful. Tiie new girls were entertained by a program of musical and dance numbers and a noxel pantomine. An orchestra from the city then played and everyone danced until " winks " warned us that it was time to " turn in " . Some of the biggest things we do here at college and some of the events for which Milwaukee-Downer is espcciall) ' noted are under the direct supervision of the Y. W " . C. A. The annual Missionary Fair, the proceeds of which go to pay our share of Miss Bo -nton ' s salary, is run under the auspices of Y. W. Miss Boynton is a former member of the Seminary faculty and is now teaching in Pekin College, in China. This year Y. W. again had its own booth, one of the most attracti -e and most profitable ones at the Fair. Fascinating Japanese novelties of all kinds tempted the eye and purse of the " F " air Shopper " . This year we had the unusual experience of meeting Miss Bo ' nton personally as she was the guest of the college for a few days in November. We profited amply by this rare opportunity and gained a feeling of personal contact with our sisters of the Oriental College. Christmas would not be Christmas at Milwaukee-Downer were it not for Y. W. Lantern Night is one of the events which, most of all, imbues us with the " Christmas Spirit " . And again it is Y. W. which helps greatly in making Lantern Night a success. For is it not the candy-filled stocking which delights the small bo}- or girl whom we visit? These stockings are made and filled by the Y. V. C. A. This year has been unusual in that it has meant a closer contact with the In- dustrial Girls of the city Y. W. Our undergraduate representative has gone down once a month to join in discussions of interest to every girl of today. One Sunday a group of our girls joined the Industrial Girls in a jolly trip out to Genessee Lake where, at the Y. V. C. A. cottage, a most interesting afternoon was spent in discussion. The Industrial Girls entertained a group of M. D. C. girls at a cozy Sunday afternoon tea in their club rooms downtown, and later these same girls came out to Milwaukee-Downer to return the visit. Although Y. V. was unable to send representatives to Geneva last summer, the other clubs here at college were urged to do so. The girls who were so fortunate as to attend this conference brought back such enthusiastic reports that Y. W. determined to lay aside a certain sum to send delegates next summer. Tliis has been done, and it is expected that Milwaukee-Downer will send her full quota this year. To tell of all the activities of . . is next to impossible, for it seems the organization has had its " finger in every pie " of an - importance. We must not forget the address books which aided us in remembering our friends at Christmas time; the Student Friendship Fund Dri e; and the Comniuiiiiy l ' ' und Campaign sponsored by the ' ' . W!. C. h.. Last, but of course not least, are the semi-monthly meetings which have been so interesting. At a special meeting of new " Milwaukee-Downerites " , the various traditions were explained. Red letter days were those when Miss West and Miss Shoyer spoke. Miss Shoyer told us about the Y. W. at Mount Holyoke and gave us some ideas which we ha -e stored in our heads for next ■ear. .-JJJ-,, ' 9 5 6 I ' aj r Fifty-inve • flcl ' ' ,Mj ,ii«jiH.Htu.Hiw v ' a uiiUiii ' .W»v ' L »»4ii «i.i .ic4ii«.yi«»WA.i«iv «ifliilaWiUWl ' Ji It JHVj jiu w CITY STUDENTS ' ORGANIZATION Miss Thomas Hazel Thomas AIary Spicuzza Adviser Chairman Seer eta ry- Treas u rer A C H A T I T H THE C S . TABLE Yes, I have been a table for a good man) ' )-ears, but I never thought much about it before. I don ' t mind it, for I have a good many friends, although they are quite unconscious of me. I could tell you a few secrets if you would listen. I know you have heard Betty Heimerl play the piano, but you don ' t know where she practises. The secret is — on me! That ' s it, I am only a table, but she runs her fingers over my top at high speed. I have been used for a great many purposes, but never as a piano until I met Betty. I don ' t mind it; in fact, it tickles me. I guess I am prett) ' useful. Sure, I liked to see Ruth Robinson hang some most violent purple and red (Fresh paint) stockings over the steam pipes along the ceiling before the class basketball games. And although I may not get credit for it, I gave the inspiration to Helen Webster, Lois Kremer, and Spic, who strug- gled for a full hour to balance Jeanette ' s treasury book. You understand that I don ' t mean to be boastful, but I guess the City Students couldn ' t get on very well without me. For all my other uses, don ' t think I am not a banquet table in the truest sense of the word, for I have served many a feast. Feasts indeed! They range from tomato soup, cheese crackers and pickles to the more elaborate menus including salads, cakes, and fancy drinks. Among our frequent guests are Kathleen E -ans, our chief cook, and " Little Windau " who samples the food. At one time last spring we thought we were going to have some luscious baked beans that Mrs. Vebster had baked for us. But unfortunately this was the evening of that famous Iay lotli; the beans were lost in the excitement and we never saw a trace of them. Pu ' r Siuy mtuiwUi i J Iff ' lfHW PW Arii ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' VW ' ' SitU W ' ' " 1 f l ' ' 1lW ' M ' Speaking of last spring rcniituls mc of the reunion of sonic of ilic hat iiuniers when Polly Dewey called on us this winter. We had a regular " Hat-hunting breakfast " — poppy seed rolls, jam and fruit. It was quite complete except for the fact that " Grandpa Webster " didn ' t bring the rolls at 7:30 and the style of clothes was decidedly changed. An outsider would probably not have recognized them as the same people. But they were, I was sure from the stories I heard. To make the occasion complete Helen Webster had to climb out the window, according to tradition. In a most inconsiderate way, the snow had piled up outside the window, but that did not hinder the celebraters, and out the window went " Web " . And oh, did you know that Helen Webster and Henri?tta McNar - are room mates tl ' .is year? Yes sir, they li e in the paint shop in Merrill Hail. ' e have a lot of fun down here when plays are given at the college, for the C. S. room is used for a general dressing room and for stage property. I remember how lo eh ' Florence Felton looked as the Princess in " The Dragon " . As for the Dragon himself, he struggled into his costume. Poor fellow, he was so hot I had to help him. I don ' t suppose -ou know he wore a coat and overshoes under the costume, to make it fit. During the dress rehearsal of the " Kna e of Hearts " some girls came down here and found e ' er ' bod ' " s clothes h ' ing around. Someone had a brilliant idea, and then things happened mighty fast. Shoes were tied to the chandelier, petti- coats were hung over the lamp shades, and dresses thrown over the steam pipes. Of course I wouldn ' t tell who did this, — that wouldn ' t be fair, but I had a lot of fun helping them. The most fun was when the actresses found what had happened, but I kept the secret — I didn ' t even smile. As for dressing, things aren ' t the same since the mirror was broken. He was such a kind fellow, and never seemed to mind being moved from pillar to post, but, alas, he was moved too often — I hope I can still watch Spic comb her hair. I know just how many curls there are and where each one goes. I think if I had had my choice, as to what I would do in this world, I would have been a hair dresser. But I would like to know just how ' era Demand always keeps her hair so perfectly. I have yet to see a hair on her he ad out of place. Sometimes when I need exercise I would like to join in the tennis game at noon, Marion Brenkle and Betty Heimerl pla - the most violent game in the hall where it is so dark you can ' t see a thing, not a thing, yet the ball flies back and forth. I give full warning to anyone coming down the stairs at this time. Your life is in danger. Although I have never seen Dolly " Hutch " play at this game, I could rather imagine she would be ver ' likely to take part. Now I do hope I have revealed no one ' s secrets in telling you this for I should hate to lose any of my charming friends. But I know lots of nice things about a lot of people and I would be very glad to have a personal interview with you if you will come down some time when I am not busy. f92 6 Page Sixty one MOUNTEBANKS OFFICERS Miss Emily Hale Rachel AIcCreight Anne Degen Henrietta McNary Faculty Advisc ' r Presidc ' nt Vice-President Secretary- Treas u rer MEMBERS Suzayne Calligan Anne Degen Helen Ford Irene Pamperin Carolyn Gunderson Rachel McCreight Violet Knutson Marion McBride Elizabeth Ferris Mary Spicuzza Martheen Seabrook Page Si. ly-l:co l ll4WI)WUil »,,,i«Hi )j iiUi»»M..ji- w.» .w+KW ' rt ' ' i ' i ' ii«j 4aftwWA Millie Schilling Jeanette Ross Kathleen Evans Lois Kremer Henrietta McXary Florence Byerly Helen Ryan Eleanor Samuels Margaret Rubens Margaret Windau j ' ;yX ' UwUi4, i «»fe«r«i ' P ' ; rjnr»iwt N«iiB CiiffntiLx T H K M () r X T I-: p. A X K S Tlic Mountebanks is llie official name for the dramatic club of Mihvaukce-Downer College which has as its aim, " to make dramatics a part of Milwaukee-Downer life and to stimulate an appreciation of good drama. " The year 1924-1925 has been an unusualh ' pleasant and profitable one for the club. The tr -outs, both in the fall and in the spring, revealed an unexpected amount of dramatic talent and resulted in the taking in of many new members who have contributed largely to the success of the plays presented this year and who, we are sure, will carr}- the club on to greater achievements next year. . t one meeting, Mrs. Sherry of the Wisconsin Players told us about the plays which she saw in New York and while she was abroad; and at another Otis Skinner, pla ing in Sniicho Panza, was our guest at tea. But the most dcli2;htful e ent of the year was the informal Valentine supper which Miss Hale gave in the faculty parlor of Albert Hall. Contrary to our usual custom, we gave two long plan ' s this } " ear, both of which were er} ' successful. They were Alice Sii-hy-tlir-Firi ' , by J. M. Barri:-, a 11 J The Dragon, by Lady Gregory. We are very proud of the picture of Glenn Hunter which he ga e the club and of the fact that Miss Eva LaGallienne came out to the college as our guest while she was playing in the cit - in The S ' :c:in. The Mountebanks ended the year with a beach pari ' in Ma ' to welcome in the n?w members and speed the departing seniors. |j i.j«iv «L ' 9a 6 ' rt v Si.xly-thrri- ,,.. )i. JlH.H aV W4l ' AtAlU .

Here were five more issues to add to the row on the shelf in the librar}-; the October, Christmas, March Hare, Rally, and iMaj-- play numbers. As the editor drew them from the file and turned their pages, she wondered whether these numbers liad in an ' wa} ' fulfilled the plans that had been made for them at the beginning of the -ear. One of the aims of the present staff has been to systemize the business depart- ment. The method of distribution has been the most obvious change, but Helen Webster has adopted se eral other policies that have put the Kodak on a more business-like basis. In the matter of composition, the work of the art-editor, Helen Ford, has added the distincti e cover designs and the pen-and-ink sketches which are a feature of this year ' s Kodak. In each number have appeared pictures of some college events which have added interest to the printed material. And then there has been a larger hum or department, in charge of Martheen Seabrook. An attempt has been made to break up the pages into numerous short write-ups instead of classifying the various events under one heading, for the staff felt that separate items add interest to the pages and facilitate reading. As she looked at the familiar pages, the editor realized that she knew some parts almost by heart. She could locate all the mistakes, her own and the printers. And no wonder, for people have a way of announcing that on page four of the October number Hawthorn was spelled with an e on the end, or that in one of the editoiials the Inphtn in Milwaukee-Downer was omitted. Here was the place that the printer changed Endowment Fund Campaign to Endowment Fun Cam- paign, but not all his errors were as happy as that one. Here was the page that in galley-proof had announced that President Briggs spoke at Vespers on Gamblers and Grumbling. And the editor chuckled as she turned to the page where, in read- ing proof, punctuation marks and all, she had happened on " Miss McPheeters in parentheses ' " . There were other errors that were not so amusing, and the editor felt that she agreed that printers had an incorrigible way of making mistakes that looked as though the proof-readers were frightfulh ' illiterate. But there were some features that seemed to her to be really worth while: Helen Ford ' s beautiful Christmas cover, featuring her quaint folk-play, and the article on academic costume, by Miss Tomson, Florence Byerly ' s mock-rally " with comments by the author " , Suzayne Calligan ' s cat story (a catastrophe only in name), and the May-play by Jeanette Ross. There they were, five slender issues, to a casual outsider scarce!)- worth the paper on which they were printed; but to the staff of the Kodak the)- meant hours of work. They represented speakers to be written up when the writer wanted to be out in the spring weather, jokes to be jotted down at every conceivable moment, class work unprepared because the assignment was due the next day, typing to be done, ads to be collected, mistakes to be apologized for, and a never-ending job. But would the staff feel that it had been all work? As the editor put the copies back into the file, she knew that these five issues of the Kodak would mean ' more to the staff because each one had been responsible for bringing them into being; and she hoped that other girls would contribute that the)- too might feel that it was thfir Kodak. fSi 6 Page Si.tty-five 4 ;.t.,.. ,4. .lL4ii ,.lJig«.Htn.» „ «Vi,i|lllUl liyi|,ll ini ; M »ii wiw wi w iffrtWWW W f Vw»W GLEE CLUB OFFICERS Esther Strassburger Joyce Kobe Jeanette Westergaard Aleene Hufford Alice Patrie Director Accovipanist President Secretary Treasurer MEMBERS First Sopranos Martha Atwood Ruth Campbell ' lRGINL EnDEBROCK Clair Foote Katherixe Hubbard Aleene Hufford Pauline Jackson Avis Kvello Alice Patrie Martheen Seabrook Florence Sumner Jeanette Westergaard Second Sopranos Murrie Denman Madeline Eichorst Evangeline Fisher Harriet Jackson Lucille Thomas Marie Urbanek Catherine Waters Alto Dorothy Bucklin Ruth Church Dorothy Hastings Marion Luce L RANiA Schuster Page Sixty-six ' Wji)l)W ,|j,.y)|,,, «,(,J l|l|j!,,l4,J|,;,l.||,;ijl ,,,,J„),,,|, ,t j;0.!U .ai,Li ii! f C{ m uix i C L K K ( ' L r B K f " II () i: s " Music, when soft voices die, ibrates in the niemorv. " -Slu-lln In years to come wiien vc look back to this } ' ear of college life, the memory will be sweeter and nearer to our hearts because in that memory echo soft strains of music, girls ' voices filling the heart with tenderness. There will come the tunes of the hymns the Glee Club sang every Sunday evening in Vespers, when each and every member was eager to sing and endeavor to make the service lovelier. Ever ' day in chapel, the Cjlee Club girls sat in front and did their best to make the singing better. Then, as the remembrance of college events unfolds, the echo of soft music will grow louder and there will break forth in the heart a sound of joyous V ' oices singing sweet carols into the cold night, voices happy with the spirit of Christmas which sparkled and sang as did the fairy lights from the cheery lanterns — such was Lantern Night. Christmas came next and was preceded by the Revels. It was there that little red-capped ginls fresh from boarding school, sang their nursery rhymes to the delight of all those assembled there. There were, of course, the traditional carols from the gallery which have lingered in the memory all these years. The French play — it seemed as if there was a weird sound in the midst of the strains of the " Pavane " — the " baa " of the tiny goat who sang his wa - into the hearts of the whole cast. The May Play found the Sophomore members of the Glee Club eager to raise their voices in praise of Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee, and, as hale and hearty Knglish folk and bonny Scotchmen, they drank the health of all the good people for miles around and toasted handsome Rob-Roy and his queenly bride. There is a sad but sweet memory of the Commencement singing — stately hymns, poignant in their meaning. But that isn ' t all. There will crowd together the many echoes from the four corners of Milwaukee — the strains of " The Song of the Volga Boatmen " , and " We Are from Milwaukee-Downer " waft from the Soldiers ' Home; there comes the sound of singing from the Athenaeum where the Glee Club sang for the Wis- consin Women ' s Club one afternoon in February; then there is the concert at the First Reformed Church; later on comes the " at home " Nature Concert given with Miss McPheeters in place of the Audobon Concert; fainter and farther awa}- comes a tune — " The Bells of St. Marys " — it comes from Sheboygan. Sweet are the echoes which will make sweeter the memories in days to come and there is one voice which has made them so — the lovely voice of Esther Strass- burger. The fame and honor which have come to the Glee Club this -ear ha -e come because of her patience and her tireless efforts to make it a thing of worth. The echo of her voice v ill never grow tlim but will li e in our hearts forever. fS2G Page Sixty-ir. ' eii . M-lJ HtU. :M l ' MtllUdJl ' , yr• ' ■» •VMM.l ' |.

Such was the program outside of the annual making of Christmas cards and lanterns for Lantern Night. There was a great deal of competition for the Christmas card designs this year, and many were submitted, making it hard to choose. The painting of them was great fun, but it took the faithful ones to stay to the last and put on the finishing touches. But we felt repaid for all our labor when we had such a host of bright cards to sell and bring in money for the Endowment Fund. And with the money earned from the sale of lanterns we were able to contribute something to the Helen Keller Fund. The making of lanterns is another busy and strenuous season — strenuous be- cause of punching holes in the stiff cardboard. But it is a merry time with all the bright paper and chatter of the girls. And how lovely they looked at night, bobbing on the ends of the poles! It is one of the most pleasant traditions of this school. It makes one happy because one is making others happy. Our meetings are very enjoyable affairs where we talk matters over in general and keep in touch with outside Art activities. We make plans while drinking piping hot tea — and I don ' t know whether or not to lay the success of them to the tea, (tea is supposed to have a mysterious effect on the female mind and tongue) — anyw ay the}- are always successful. One especially delightful tea was given for Miss Partridge. We initiated the new tea set — the gift to the Studio this year. The all-day sketching trips when the warm da s arrive are events to look forward to, and one gets inspiration from the lo -cIiness around about, and from the companionship. These are the outstanding features of the work and play of a club which affords many delights. Each event has its own memories and significance, and it is trul - a jo ' to belong to a club which deals with the beautiful as well as the useful.

The regular monthly meeting of the club have given splendid opportunity for practice along these lines. The fertile brains of Mile. Serafon and Dorothy Goodman have provided some novel pastime for each meeting. There have been weird tales told in turn by the mem- bers; there have been clever charades and songs. Aluch dramatic talent was discovered in some of the stunts performed by the new members. The food, always supplied by Milwaukee ' s finest cuisines, provided the final note of sociability and comradeship. Over the coffee cups were discussed, in French, the most complicated political situations as well as the length of skirts in Paris. If the latter type of conversation was a bit more popular it may be attributed to the French atmosphere. The meetings were usually ended by the singing of the " Marseillaise " in a spirited French manner, accompanied by the piano and victrola. We have frequently heard members of the Club say that it was alwaj ' s a blow to them, after one of these delightful afternoons, to find themselves in Milwaukee instead of in Paris. On March twenty-seventh the French Play was given. It took the form of a series of three tableaux in commemoration of the fourth century of the death of the great French poet Ronsard. Each member of the club co-operated in mak- ing this play a success, therefore the production was fine in every way. The acting was good and the costumes and setting were exquisite. This play, which is more fully described on another page, was the climax of an interesting and worth-while year in the history of the Club. It was successful both artistically and financially so that Mile. Serafon declared it well worth the time and effort that it cost. Before closing we must state that a large measure of the credit for the success of the Club year is due to Mile. Serafon who has put a great deal of herself into the interest of the meetings and also to Dorothy Goodman who has made a very capable and pleasant president. " Vive Le Cercle Francais!

A list of the most famous women was made, from which each member selected one to study. One group of women has been presented at each meeting throughout the year, those of early Rome at the first meet- ing and so on to the women of the late Empire. The final meeting in the Houseboat on the Styx will sum up the results of the year ' s study. The Mother of the Gracchi, the bride of Manlius, and Sulplicia, the poetess, will all be there, telling of the days they spent in Rome, walking about its streets and watching the sacrifices in the temples around the Forum. Members of the club will then be as familiar with the Roman women as they are with all the great Roman orators and generals. Page Scventy-lwo WillliJIMJl||af»||,,,|rtH )l ll!

The pages record an eventful and successful year. The club this year, comprising only about eighteen members, enthusiastically undertook everything from the simple, traditional one-act Christ- mas play to extensive landscape gardening, — but more of that later. The purpose of the ' erein has always been to further in the members the interest in the German language, life, and literature, and with this end in view the club has conducted its monthly meetings. Especially interesting was the October meeting in which the new members of the club by way of initiation pre- sented German proverbs and riddles in the form of pantomimes. The panto- mimes were presented informally, the old members solving the charades if they could. The annual Christmas playlet took the form this year of an Altdeutsches Weih- nachtsspiel. The beautiful stories of the shepherds watching their flocks by night, of their visit to the manger, and of the adoration of the wise men were presented with dear touches of whimsicality on the part of the shepherds, and with real spiritual quality in the manger scene. The remark made previously regarding landscape gardening was not a jest, but a reality. Through the suggestion and inspiration of Miss Rossberg, to whom the club feels deeply grateful, the ' erein presented Mrs. Hagen-Leissner, a noted- singer, who gave us a delightful concert of Lieder and Balladen. With the pro- ceeds from this concert, the club intends to start the planting of a real garden immediately west of McLaren Hall. Besides endeavoring to accomplish its aim through its own initiative, the club has been thoughtfully aided by a friend, Mrs. Grace Norton Kicckhefer. Mrs. Kieckhefer invited the club to her home where she had arranged a delightful concert of German music rendered by two artists. It is with a sincere warmth of feeling that the members regard the Marie Wollpert Verein for they feel that the club has indeed led them on towards fuller appreciation of German ideals.

The celebration took the form of a Rally on the night of November Third. Competition ran high between the parties. The College was di ided among the four political groups: Republicans, Democrats, Progressive-Republicans, and Laborites. With the help of brass bands, torch light processions, and overalls the girls had the pleasure of taking part in an " honest-to-goodness " political round-up, or something very much like it. Who could help but be converted to the Labor Party with Spic so forcefully presenting its platform? Phyllis Irvine gave a very suave political speech, and we are sure that Bob would ha ' e been proud of his under-study. Jeanette Ross and Mar- garet indau represented the less spectacular Republican and Democratic Parties. Helen L ' nseth presided over the meeting with a becoming dignity, but she had some difficulty in keeping the overly enthusiastic crowd in check. Even the alarm clocks that the LaFoUettites wore around their necks entered into the spirit of the evening and went off at intervals. The decisive moment came when Aliss Ford and Miss Brown changed their political convictions and went over to the Labor Party through the force of Spic ' s eloquence. The prestige of these two eminent members of our College group naturalh ' drew a large number of followers. After the program in chapel, every one went to the voting booths and pledged her support to her particular favorite. The Rally is uppermost in our minds, and we speak of it first, but the League has held other profitable meetings. Miss Chase invited us to her home on se eral occasions. The girls enjo ed planning the Rail} ' , and listening to Miss F ' ord ' s entertaining talks on current events over the tea cups, or, to be exact, the coffee cups. The Inauguration and policies of our new Congress at Washington occupied our interest during the Spring. ISli, Ln.i«t Page Seventy-five iitSl! ' V X iww««««wW(Wflwwiiitj»im!iii»5i msr i .

Only those students recommended by the musical faculty may become members. The Liebling Club received its name several years ago at the time of the death of Mr. Emil Liebling, a musician of international reputation as composer, pianist and music critic, who was a non-resident director of the Music Department of the College. After his death the club changed its name from the Euterpe Club to the Liebling Club as a memorial to him.

" — Cushman Dramatic work forms a large part of the life at Milwaukee-Downer; through- out the school year plays of diversified character are presented to us on our own chapel stage or in our natural theater, Ha wthornden. More than providing unique and profitable entertainment, they have discovered to us talent unknown to the majority, from those who have been the principal ' s in our productions to those who have taken minor roles. Both spring and winter bring plays resplendent in costumes and scenery. Those presented out-of-doors are intensified in their loveliness by the season of the year, but who will ever forget the warmth and cheer of our Christmas pag- eants? In May, the Sophomores present their Ma - Play, written and directed by a member of their class; there is the picturesque May Pole dance and the stately Queen about whom a clever drama is staged. Soon comes Commencement week with its dignified atmosphere — here we find the Class Play, written by a mem- ber of the Senior Class, which is in a way a history of the achievements of the class; and also the Coriimencement Play, which has of ten been one of Shakes- peare ' s immortal dramas or some more modern piece. Back at school again in the fall, we also return to our dramatic eff ' orts. Our first production is usually the City Students ' Play which, for a number of years, has taken the form of a fantasy with rather elaborate staging; this year, however, it took the form of " Something New " — a collection of acts, different in char- acter, but each good in its own way. Our Dramatic Club, the Mountebanks, brings two programs to us annually; one in the fall and one in the spring, pre- senting new members each year. To say that these plays are enjoyed to the fullest extent would be to voice the opinions of all those in the Mountebanks ' audiences. The French Play, usually given in March, delights not only those who are students of French, but all those who enjoy pantomime and lovely spec- tacles. Then, too, we have the Athletic Association vaudeville every two years, dramatic in its own manner. Perhaps the culmination of the dramatic events of the j-ear comes with the Christmas Play. Which one of us could help remembering the boar ' s head in the great Hall, the holly and the mistletoe, the cheer of the fireside, the call- ing of the night-watchman, and the singing of the carols; all of which precedes the unfolding of a festival, either in the home of the Fezziwigs or in the lovely Old English Manor-house. Thus through the year we are entertained by the talent and work of those dramatically inclined; although their work could be called play since it is en- joyed so much. And we, in turn, term each production, " A hit, a very palpable hit " .

The author, Jeanette Ross, 1927, produced what proved to be a convincing account of the possible origin of this expression. Is there not on the Scotch border a river Tweed? And were not the Scotch on the North guilty of Jacobite sympathi3s that would inflame the loyal subjects of Queen Anne on the South? And is it not a fact that in 1706, an attempt was made to overcome these differences in the royal proclam- ation of the Union of these two countries, — a Union perpetuated in the name and character of the Union Jack? From these historical data and bits of ancient folk-lore have been assembled materials for a very original and plausible play. On this particular May Day, in 1706, the old feud between the Scotch hamlet of Tweedledum and the English hamlet of Tweedledee is at its height. Squire Featherstone has refused to let his daughter, Elinore, accept the honor of being May Queen, if she persists in her perverse devotion to her supposedly Jacobite lover, Allan McAlpine. True to form, however, Elinore has not the slightest intention of rejecting the lover for a lifetime, only to be queen for a day. The lovers, however, are not without their loyal sympathizers: Morella Knight- ly, a gypsy; and a Brownie, Pillicock, by name, an imp serving in the household of the Squire of Tweedledee. In telling the fortunes of the lovers, the gypsy fore- tells six strange unions about to be consummated. Firm in the hope that Love will find out a way, Elinore posts a letter on the Hawthorn tree, announcing her decision to run away and renouncing her position as May Queen in favor of her cousin, Patricia Montjoy, an orphan, who has been brought up by her side. But with the trysting and the exit of the lovers, the shadow on the sundial is moving forward, until it marks the time for the rousing of the mayers. Pillicock emerges to perform this yeoman ' s service to the sleeping inhabitants of both Dee and Dum. But what is this that we hear? No May Queen? Where is she? This brings her father, the squire, promptly upon the scene. His wrath descends upon the head of poor Pillicock, the discoverer of Elinore ' s letter. Him the angry squire banishes from Tweedledee, not however, without protest from the boy, whose in- stinct tells him that help is near. And so it is! A courier from London arrives, big with momentous news: the royal proclamation of the Lnion between England and Scotland, — a Union already symbolized in the Union Jack which he proudly bears. Disclosures follow. The courier proves to be none other than George Featherstone, Elinor ' s brother and suitor for the hand of Patricia, his cousin. She had sent him away months ago when a ne ' er do weel, promising her hand to him only on condition that he mend his ways and prove his worth. Moreover, the suspect Allen is no Jacobite at all, but a loyal supporter of Queen Anne. Fortunately for all, Allen and Elinore had not ridden very far, before being overtaken by her brother, the courier, at the Green Goose Inn. Thence the squire, repenting of his haste, summons the pair, bidding them don gay apparel, in readiness for the Crowning. But one thing now remains: the solution of the mystery prophesied by the Romany that morning concerning six unions. It seems that in the border warfare between the two hamlets, Pillicock ' s father had fallen, fighting bravely for the Tweedledums; his son was banished with a price on his head should he ever show his face in Tweedledum. The gypsy, his foster nurse, knowing this, had guarded the secret and worked meanwhile for the union that would nullif)- his doom. Thus they who were " at sixes and sevens " are now only " six of one and half a dozen of the other.

The players gave a real interpretation of the piece — of the keen wit and the searching humor in it, the swiftly changing moods, the sense of mystery, the trusting belief of a simple people who " see only ever-living laws " . Skepticism is disarmed by the delight in watching the cook turn prince; the tailor masquerade as a king; and most of all in seeing the scaly green dragon vanquished by magic, Traged}- is imminent. The stars have been read by the astrologer, and the pro- phecy given that the sweet princess must die — not in a twelve-month, as her ease-loving father, the king, believes, but this day! For mortals have erred in the birth-hour of the princess; and the prophet vindicates the eternal laws of the stars, and his own gift of prophec) ' , as faithful and as ancient as they. Thebrave young prince comes, and saves the princess. To change the temper of the scah " young dragon is not easy; and the bold prince puts into the beast the heart of a squirrel! The monster who so lately raged for blood is appeased by the milk of a cocoanut. Not less brave is the handsome " prince of the marshes " , who, in spite of the handicap of having two over-solicitous aunts, proves himself worthy when there is real need, and uses right well the great spear of the King, in helping to vanquish the dragon. The nurse shows the charm, the whims}-, the loyalt}- and keen wit of the Irish, and Dall Glic, the blind wise man, their faith in mystery and magic. Sibby, the mother of Taig, the tailor, adds a touch of the comic as she upbraids her runaway son for playing King. And then there are the servants who produce food so miraculously, and the grave gate-keeper. And the dragon — but we must remember that before he appears on the stage he has been trained and bridled! All, from king to serv ants, are under the spell of magic except the Queen, who to the last remains outside the charmed circle, and believes she has controlled the moods of the gods, and the motions of the stars, and " has everything brought about very well in the finish " . Background and costumes were a considerable triumph. The action took place against a tapestr) ' heavy with gold; strong chairs and rugs of skins; walls hung with the rough shields and spears of the King which told their own story of old conquests, before he who used them had " grown to be bulky and wishful for sleep " . The whole presentation was most effective. Harmony of color, accuracy and fidelity in setting and costumes, just interpretation of values in dialogue con- tributed to make this one of the most interesting events of the year. ALIC E-SIT-BY-THE-FIRE Tears and laughter all in two brief hours — a breath of In dia, and the pervading atmosphere of merry England! Of course, we mean the Mountebanks ' performance of " Alice-Sit-by-the-Fire. " How we laughed at the children, how we sympathized with their philosophy of life, and how impatient we became when we saw them unappreciative of Alice, the " mother-who-would-not-grow-old " . Alice, the beautiful mother, who has lost her sense of time, comes home from a stay in India, to discover that her family is sufficient unto itself. Alice would rather not grow old, but her children resent her attentions. " They would manage their own af- fairs, thank you. " It is only when the great trial comes, when Alice is forced to action to protect her little daughter, that the two, mother and daughter, achieve the great understanding. Once this understanding has been reached, Alice de- cides to grow old gracefully, and watch the years pass by, out of sight while her children ' s love and confidence completely fill the new horizon. The play is charm- ing, and the Mountebanks ' performance of it was one of the most finished of productions. Page Eighty-two iii;u,.J,.i.-i Ll f, ;,J " K- ' ;i|!

There was a handsome young poet in Elizabethan costume who wrote sonnets to a skylark. The unseen skylark returned a song. There were pretty shepherdesses who sang and danced. There was a three-weeks-old goat to add to the picturesque- ness of the scene. Then there was a court scene containing many handsomeh- dressed royal people. Here, too, there was singing and dancing, but of a different sort. The lovely old French pavane was danced by four children and a difficult song was performed by a beautiful lady dressed in gold. If you knew your French history, you could easily have distinguished Catherine de Medici, and maybe Mary Stuart, as a young girl. A bit later in the evening you would have seen a darkened stage held by four graceful nymphs in bas-relief. At the center was a fifth nymph devoting herself to the adoration of a large medallion on which was carved the bust of a man. These are but a few of the delights which entertained those who attended the annual French play. The play took the form of a tribute to Ronsard on the fourth centenary of his birth. Any poet of any age or tongue might well have been proud of such a eulogy. It is truly a beautiful thing, this devotion to a compatriot who lived four hundred years ago. Mademoiselle Serafon selected from the combined works of Ronsard some of the most beautiful poems, and with exquisite art created three tableaux. Not only were the lines arranged beautifully, but also the stage sets and the costumes. In the first tableau, " The Pleiade " , the curtain was drawn to disclose Ronsard with one of his poet-companions, writing and reading sonnets. The setting for this scene was a forest and the costumes of the shepherdesses were dainty, simple, and pretty. Soon there entered other poets to join in the worship of Bacchus. When pretty shepherdesses entered with the goat, the scene became even more beautiful. After singing an old French song, they joined with the poets in a country dance. The scene ended with the picture of each of the poets tossing off a final goblet of wine. The second tableau disclosed Ronsard at court, helping to celebrate the four- teenth birthday of Mary Stuart. Here was seen the entire family of Catherine de Aledici. Here, too, was the beautiful Cassandre, the beloved of Ronsard who delightfully sang one of the sonnets which Ronsard wrote to her. The four royal children danced the stately old pavane, and, after having been applauded by Mary Stuart, they recited charming verses. The setting this time was royal blue and fleurs de lis. There was a lovely atmosphere of family devotion and courtliness which brought the days of the old regime very near. The third tableau represented the glorification of Ronsard. The dark stage at the drawing of the curtains symbolized the years when Ronsard remained in obscurity, almost entirely unappreciated. The flooding of lights represented his rise to the position of glory which he now holds. Nymphs and muses offered their tribute to the poet: a basket of flowers from the wood nymph, a sonnet from Helene, a golden diadem from Astree and a song from Cassandre. A final tribute from the modern muse brought the story of Ronsard to the present time. No detail was omitted in making the production one of artistic perfection. Mile. Serafon was the ever resourceful and versatile wizard, whose deft touch could reanimate the scenes of so long ago. The audience left the chapel with feelings of respect and admiration for both the poet of four hundred years ago and the artist who was responsible for this rehabilitation of by-gone days.

Songs and cheers rang out from both sides. The game started with a goal for the Seminar}- followed in the second quarter by one for the College, when Frances Nagel sent the ball skimming between the posts. Breathless excitement held the crowds from that moment, making them forget the chill in the air and the numbness of fingers and toes. Again and again the ball traveled toward the College goal but was stopped there and sent back by the strong sure strokes of Boothby and McBride. Down the field it traveled, sped on its way by the swift College team, to be sent over the line by Spicuzza, Niederman, and Nagel.

" — such was the parade from the College to the Sem on the morning of March 28. Cheering and singing, the College en- tered the Seminary gym and marched around to the tunes of the clown band, then lined up behind the rope ready for the game to begin. From the first blow of the whistle, the game proved to be more than usually exciting. For a time, it seemed as if the Sem team held some charm over the ball as it dropped again and again into the basket. Then it sped to the College forwards to be caught and sent straight through the ring, only to be returned to center and then back and through the basket once more. So close was the race that neither side was very sure as to which was ahead when the end of the half came. The moment of suspense while the score was being added, the false alarm of a one point advantage for the Sem, only served to increase the intensity of the excitement which broke forth in cheers from both sides when a tie was finally announced. The highly original and unexpectedly successful basket practice of two of the blue and white clowns between halves, afforded much entertainment and a wel- come relaxation to both players and onlookers. At the end of the intermission the two teams returned to the floor with new determination to fight a good fight and win if possible. Again the ball traveled from one end of the floor to the other in swift sure passes. Then the Sem in a grand spurt made basket after basket, increasing their score by leaps and bounds. With only a few minutes to play, the College team bent every energy to make up that fatal difference, — point by point they added to their score, — but it was too late. The whistle blew, and one of the best College- Seminary games in years was over, with a score of 37-30 in favor of the Sem.

The house was at the end of a winding road which led through the black forest, dotted with white mushrooms, through the green meadow with its peaceful cows to the village where Pierrette and Columbine had their business. Here, in a pretty painted store, these two worth} ' ladies had a flourishing trade in cakes. They did not sell bread or rolls — these were for others — but just buns and cakes with colored frosting. Of course they could not serve everyone, but only those who best appreciated the artistry of their handiwork. Among these were the little twins, Jinnie and Jennie, who daily bought six of the gooseberry tarts trimmed with forget-me-nots. They would lay their shiny sixpenny piece on the white counter, would receive their pink package, tied with yellow string, would run up the street into the black forest where a certain spot testified that each of the gooseberry tarts trimmed with forget-me-nots had been eagerh ' de- voured. Then there was Mandello, the painter, who said that he could do no work which was worth} ' until he had eaten two of the chocolate cakes, filled with straw- berry, which Pierrette and Columbine had named after him, " Mandellos " . There were others: the dainty bride, for example, who came every Friday for a hot- cross bun with currants, because her John liked to eat them with the fish; there was the mail man, who received a tart for every letter which he brought to Pierrette and a bun for each of Columbine ' s letters. And still others: the beautiful lad} ' , who bought only pink cakes, which she fed to her white poodle, for an} ' other kind made him ill — and the fat little girl who was not particular about the color of her cakes, and who, Pierette and Columbine often thought, enjoved them most of all. At the end of a long warm day Pierrette and Columbine looked with pleasure at their empty counter. Everything had been bought, save those very fat choco- late " Othellos " which would make a loveh ' dinner for them. The} ' kissed each other, as they always did at the end of a successful da} ' , and prepared to close the shop for the night. They were locking the door, — the three " Othellos " safe in a blue bag under Columbine ' s arm, when they were startled by a man, whistling like a strange bird, who came swinging up the street. Pierrette and Columbine thought that he was beautifully dressed in his suit of purple and green. He stopped before them, saluted gravel} ' , and then his face broke into a most dazzling smile. " What heavenh ' teeth " , thought Columbine. " What delightful crinkly golden-brown hair, " mused Pierrette. Both of them were surprised at the pounding in the vicinity of their respective hearts and both of them looked slu ' ly awa} ' . " Good evening, fair damsels, " said the handsome, green and purple figure. " May I take you home to dinner? " " Yes, yes, " cried Pierrette, jumping up and down and clapping her hands. " Thank you very much, " said Columbine, more sedate!} ' . " It would be a great pleasure. " The man walked around the corner whence he had come and returned im- mediately with a beautiful green and purple wheelbarrow. " Here is my chariot, ladies, " and with that both of them hopped in, and he swung along the road. Through the green meadow with its peaceful cows to the tiny house of sandstone perched on the edge of the long white clifi ' which overlooked the sapphire lake edged by the smooth, yellow beach. Out scrambled Pierrette and Columbine and into the house, where the} ' placed the three fat " Othellos " on the kitchen table. " Supper is ready, " called Pierrette, and Pierrot, for that was his name, walked into the house. They had a merry meal, for this Pierrot was a jolh ' fellow and told many tales. He would smile at Pierrette, till the pounding in her heart became almost P«g,- Oil,- Hundrrd 9 5 6 . ,iJ..U.

Htnvexer when lie smiled at Pierrette, Columbine did not smile, and when he smiled at Columbine, Pierrette looked almost cross. When nine o ' clock came, Pierrette yawned and Columbine ' s head bej an to nod. Pierrot, who was a very observing fellow, jumped up and look his preen and purple cap. He walked gravely over to Pierrette, bowed and thanked her for the delicious supper and for the evening. Then he walked gravcl - over to Columbine, bowed and thanked her for the de- licious supper and for the charming exening. A minute later they could hear him whistling and the creaking of his wheelbarrow — both growing softer. As they prepared for bed, neither of them spoke very much. Columbine looked with pity at the freckle on Pierrette ' s nose and Pierrette could not under- stand why she had ever thought Columbine ' s hair pretty. As they went to sleep, each of them was sure that she had met her affinity and that the morrow would bring great things. On the next day the shop seemed dull. Jinnie and Jennie did not smile as prettily as usual, and Mandeilo did not come. The mail man had no letters and the beautiful lady with the white poodle decided that she wanted yellow cakes instead of pink ones. hen Columbine was busy, Pierrette would steal to the window and look down the road. When Pierrette was busy, Columbine would run out of the door and look up and down the road. When the day was over, Pierrette and Columbine looked in dismay at the collection of tarts, pink cakes and " Mandellos " that they had not sold. They did not kiss each other, but gathered the cakes into a basket and locked the door. Just then they were startled by the deep singing of a man. As he came swinging up the street, Columbine and Pierrette thought that he was beautifully dressed in his suit of red and yellow. He stopped before them, bowed deeply and smiled sweetly. " What heavenly blue eyes, " thought Columbine. " What delightful smooth, black hair, " mused Pierrette. Again they both felt a peculiar pounding near their hearts, and ' they both turned shyly away. " Good evening, pretty ladies, " said the nice red and yellow man. " May I take you home to dinner? " " Yes, yes, " cried Pierrette, and jumping up and down, she clapped her hands. " Thank you very much, " said Columbine, more sedately. " It would be a great pleasure indeed. " The man walked around the corner whence he had come and returned im- mediately h a beautiful red and yellow wheelbarrow. " Here is the omnibus, ladies, " and with that both of them hopped in, and he trotted along the road. Through the green meadow with its peaceful cows, through the black forest dotted with white mushrooms, up the road to the tiny house of sandstone perched on the edge of the long white cliff, which overlooked the sapphire lake edged by the smooth, yellow beach. Out scrambled Pierrette and Columbine with the basket of cakes, and into the house where they placed the basket of cakes on the kitchen table. " Supper is ready " , called Columbine, and Harlequin, for that was his name, walked into the house. They had a lovely meal, for this Harlequin was a charming fellow and told beautiful stories. He would smile at Pierrette, and how her heart would pound! He would smile at Columbine, and how she would blush and turn away! But when he smiled at Columbine, Pierrette sulked, and when he smiled at Pierrette, Columbine was nearly in tears. When nine o ' clock came, Columbine ' s head began to nod and Pierrette yawned. Harlequin, a very thoughtful lad, arose and took leave, as all gentlemen do in such a situation, by bowing himself out of the door. They could hear him go singing down the road, accompanied b - the creak of his wheelbarrow. As they prepared for bed, neither of them spoke at all. Columbine felt sorr for Pierrette whose nose turned up at the end and Pierrette pitied Columbine because her eyes were not iolet like her own. As they went to sleep, each of then f93. 6 •agf One- Ilur.drfd 0,u- , y „, , L f (:■ iil l)i t ,tr ' » • ' ■•i ■» ' lil | ' ' ' » M» »i) i wiow ii «wtf ) a » iW ' t i " iwwff ' twiiiwi w r ' i f«» t was sure that now she had really met her affinit} ' and that the morrow would bring great things. On the next day the shop was unbearably dull. Jinnie and Jennie thought that Pierrette and Columbine were dreadfully cross and left the shop weeping instead of taking their gooseberry tarts trimmed with forget-me-nots. Mandello was still ill, and the lady with the poodle decided to transfer her trade to the other shop. All day Pierrette and Columbine gazed out of the window. When evening finally came, they gathered up the cakes and locked the door. Just as they were leaving, they were startled by a man wlastling like a strange bird, as he came swinging up the street, and by the deep singing of another who came just behind. One wore green and purple — and he was Pierrot; and the other wore red and yellow — and he was Harlequin. Pierrot bowed and flashed his teeth. " Good evening, fair damsels, " he said. Harlequin bowed and smiled. " Good evening, pretty ladies, " he said. " May I walk home with you, Pierrette? " said Pierrot. " May I walk home with you. Columbine? " said Harlequin. They both accepted the invitations and in some way managed to take different paths home. When they arrived — and it was long after nine o ' clock — Pierrette and Columbine met on the threshold of the tiny house of sandstone perched on the edge of a long white cliff which overlooked a sapphire lake edged by a smooth, yellow beach. They stood arm in arm watching the green and purple figure of Pierrot and the red and yellow figure of Harlequin disappear down the road. As they prepared for bed, they talked gaily. " I have never noticed before how beautiful Columbine is, " thought Pierrette. " I wish that m}- hair were as prett} ' as Pierrette ' s " mused Columbine. M.-iRGARET Rubens, 1927. AX IDEAL R O M M ATE First of all, let me say that I have no roommate and I have never had a room- mate. But if I did have one, here is the type I should like. She must not be good looking for then I would be jealous of her. But yet she must not be worse looking than I am for in that case she might become jealous of me. She must not be taller than I am for then we could not exchange clothes; and she must not be shorter because I would appear too tall when in her company. She must not be too fat, for if she were she would attempt to reduce; however, I do not want her to be thinner than I am for then she might attempt to reduce me. So much for her appearance. The character of my ideal roommate is even more important than her looks. First of all she must not be careless or messy, but neither must she be too neat and prim, for I abhor premature old maids. She must not be too frivolous, for I am sometimes quite serious; but neither must she be too intellectual to enjoy a great deal of foolishness. She must not study all the time for then I would have to study too, and she must not constanth- be idling her time away, for the other girls might consider her laziness to be my fault. She must not be disagreeable and always ready to contradict others, for then our room might resemble a battle ground. Above all, she must not be con- ceited. Conceited people constantly talk about " me " and " mine " , and, if only to vary the monotony, I might also become conceited and start talking onh ' of myself. Though I suppose if she did not have enough self-confidence, she would constantly be praising me and I should become conceited anyhow. She must be a good tennis player, for I need someone with whom to practice. She must enjoy swimming because I hate to go to the swimming pool alone, and besides, one can ' t ask a stranger if the form of that last di ' e was right. Yes, if my roommate possessed all these qualities, I think I should like her. M.VRION Groesbeck, 192S.

Man ' generations of young womanhood have passed to and fro before it and have laughed and sung, and joked and whispered words of con- fidence or hope beneath its lop-sided visage, and yet it remains inscrutable, the " time keeper of the sunshine " . I love to watch the shadows flit across it when a vagrant cloud caresses the sun and keeps it to itself for a fleeting second. With some surprise does the sun-dial stop in its recording, to pause and ruminate, to speculate on such facetious action. It is like an old professor who, only for a wa -ering moment, finds himself doubting natural phenomena. The Sun Dial records only sunny hours. I wonder how much of my life has been recorded. PKAKS High abo -e earthh ' things stand Youth ' s Aspirations — serene and invulnL-rablc, white-lopped ir.ountains so firm and strong; in the clouds, to be sure, but above the storm clouds, and out of reach of the hurricane. Temperaments rise to peaks and then fall, dependent upon things of the earth, painfully dragging at its bonds, and never wholly realizing desires. Beauty reaches heights, and delights unknown to mortals await the " immortelles " , but time reaps its harvest and Beauty is ulnerable, fleeting. Peaks of delight and content rise only to fall, undulating permanently like mid-ocean heavings. Happiness reaches its heights and as readily sinks into the mire of despair. Only Youth ' s Aspirations stand; the stern reminder of age ' s fallibility, only Youth ' s Aspirations rise to a peak of permanence. GRADUATION ' (The Other Side of the Door) A great philosopher has told us that the opening and closing of doors are among the most important of life ' s little pageants. How many fortunes have been made and lost because only one side of the door was known. The other side? Four years of approach, treading upon the carefully laid carpet of college, and finally the collegienne has come to the threshold — the culmination of hopes and desires. Is graduation the culmination, the end? She slowly turns the knob; and the door swings open, the iron hinges creak, for countless generations have crossed that threshold. On the other side is Commencement — the world; for graduation is only the beginning. Claire Rosenbloom, 1925. BABY BROTHER OF MINE Just a little, warm, wriggling bit of humanit % swathed in comforters of " pinky ' softness, in a cradle of ivory and laces, — that was my baby brother. He had been with us for just a little while, yet he was already the king of the household, the all important element in the life of the family. Just like any other baby, I suppose, except for his blue, blue eyes, his smile, that made your heart miss a beat when you saw it, and — the back of his neck! Other babies may have had hair as golden as his, but not hair that curled in soft, moist little ringlets on his forehead, or fluffed out as light as smoke rings with sunbeams dancing through them. They may have even had toes that twisted and pushed at the enveloping covers, but not such little fat pink toes that beckoned ) ' ou to come and kiss them. Dimples, too, I believe, are as a rule, rather profuscl}- distributed among tin ' folk, but tlicy are not all such alluring, mischievous dimples as his! When you played with him, his whole chubby little body quivered with ex- citement. He could not talk the ordinary language of grown-ups, but how much more expressive were his gurgles of happiness or his sweet, sobby little sounds of distress! When he dreamed, faint little ghosts of smiles chased each other o e|f ' ' | his lips! Just like any other baby? Well, " Maybe he was, but I doubt it. " Kathleen Kvans, 1927.

' " mi THE WORLD IX A GRAIN OF SAND The lights were a cliain of golden gems, some of them had slipped off and sparkled alone in the flowing of the dusk. Sheila gazed at it all from the top of the bus, and experienced an unusual happy rush of feeling for the acute beauty. She sat passively in the jolting bus, thinking of the people she had seen on the rushing street, of the things in the shops, as she thrilled with the spirit of the rest- less, pulsating world of humankind which moves and throbs in a cit ' . " And I was becoming dull in mind and emotion, I thought! How ridiculous. I must have forgotten about down town! " And so after that. Sheila went down town more often, and each time she found something more to think about in the shrieking, rumbling, varied, complex pa geant of this fundamentally human city. She felt herself an outsider, a master of the detached attitude, because she pushed her way through the crowds or walked down the less dense streets without knowing a person. Yet, thinking of Hazlitt ' s On Going on a Journey, she felt the tinge of glamour touching her own little journeys into the midst of this town. Today, swaying in the omnibus. Sheila started with a sudden remembrance of a school girl dream that had filled her mind during those days when young girls live so vividly in the future as to make their present life seem unspeakably commonplace and unbearably usual, except for the haze of dreams which drape it with purple and gold mist. Sheila saw, in a flash, the truth of the whole matter. She was living her ideal life and was wholly uncon- scious of the fact! " Why, how I used to long for independence, and now — I really can do just what I like. It ' s lonely, somehow, not to have anyone tell me what to do, but I used to hate to mind! " She stared out of the bus window; the bus had stopped, so she had time to note in detail the castle-like stone houses with lighted windows, which stood perpetually and unchanging on Prospect Avenue. " And I had gotten used to seeing these lovely, romantic homes and liveriad chauffeurs and mole wrapped ladies — why, I ' ve simply become hardened to all that I used to yearn to see. Tall lighted buildings and the moon on the lake and — 3 ' es, I always did want to go to college, and now I ' ve taken it all for granted. " Her mind was cramped in uncomfortable grooves now, for Sheila began to realize the true extent of her selfishness and narrowness. " I ' ve never liked my- self, but now I ' m despicable. I ' ve shut my eyes to the hardness and reality of the world; one reason why I ' ve been bored, I suppose. But oh, I ' m glad, I ' m thankful that I can be in this town where I can see these foreign poor people, with their ears pierced and their shawls — if I could help them, that ' s the real thing to think about — not myself — " It was a real struggle — Sheila ' s egoism against her sympathy and common sense. The broader feeling conquered — " I know I ' m fortunate, I should onl - be thankful. " W ithin the next Spring-scented, winged-footed week, Sheila found her cup brimming with jo) " , for the needed revelation had come. Not only was she in tune with the hum and shout of the city, but she had fitted into her life the other girlish desire, the realization of a country estate just within reach of civilization, yet remote enough for an atmosphere of elemental Nature, unhampered b - the ugliness of man ' s works; she had wanted wooded places, and security. She had wanted, along with the advantages for the life of an Indian athlete, books, and leisure in which to write down what she wished. (She intended to write novels.) And all this, which had seemed so far off in the illimitable stretches of the future was hers now! This realization came to Sheila one star studded, coolly dark blue evening, when Spring had charmingly decided to make room for herself in the mind and heart of the busy universe. " Sheila had walked half way about the enclosed campus, fore her weary mind began to make thoughts out of the impressions it had taken Page On,- Ilundr.-d Four !:(.! ' iii Cij m jJo in. ' Papan bcaut - was in tlic i-lmin- lace fans which were tlu- tree brandies; poldcn ficces of the wonder and j;lor - that makes up the civilized world were the sus- pended necklaces of street lipiits; the trolley cars roared by, the wind sanj;. Sheila felt very alive, and er - much a part of the bij;, bustling business of the universe. She saw, with a feeling ' of affection, the black buildings of the college, with their innumerable brilliant windows against the dusk. " I ' m getting somewhere, and enjoying the steep climb, " said the girl thinking of her work. Then, " Oh, how good the lights in the kids ' rooms look, and I ' m starved — " Jf., n ' ii.i-i. ms, 1927. Ut Mt A T K I P I. 1-: M I S A L L I A X C E " Ouch! " I exclaimed, and put niv finger quickly iiitu ni nmuth. 1 laid the curling iron down in disgust. " The - fiught to i. ' i c an instruction book with a dresser like this! " I thought. For five minutes I had been trying to curl my hair before my newly-acquired triple mirror. So far, I had succeeded in making one scraggly-looking curl in my hair, and two other very successful ones in my ear and finger, respectively. I thought of the Scottish king who had learned the lesson of perseverance by watch- ing a spider spin his web. Like him, I needed to win a battle, for I had to have my hair curled to go to church! I adjusted the two side mirrors again, and tried to see myself in the left one. I moved forward, so as to see more of me than my nose — and I saw only the re- flected wall. I moved backward, — and there was my face, moving forward in the mirror! I lifted up m - curling iron to apply it. Instead of grabbing my hair with it, as I had intended, and hoped I was doing, I found myself wa ing my iron aimlessly in the air, off to the left somewhere. In my exasperation I lost track of mv image in the mirror, and had to hunt for it all over again. I made an ad- ditional discovery. If it seemed as if I could see myself better by moving nearer to the mirror I was looking into, the desired effect could be produced by moving toward the other one. The reason for this puzzled me at first, until it daw ned on me that I was moving nearer to the mirror which was being reflected in the one into which I was looking. ' hy hadn ' t I studied physics? I sighed, and made another attempt, this time trying to keep firmh ' in m}- mind the principle I had discovered. I found myself flourishing my iron danger- ously near my nose. I concentrated. " Now I must make my iron go to the right in the mirror, which means I must make it go to the left. " I made an extreme mental effort, and was at last rewarded with success. I rolled up the iron — back- wards, — sat patiently the necessar)- length of time, pulled out my iron in the opposite from the logical direction, and found I had made a curl! hat an exhausting process! I remembered the sociological law I had learned last year, " Each individual seeks the greatest reward for the least sacrifice. " I decided I was making too great a sacrifice for the little reward I was petting. Why bother with the two little side mirrors when there was one big one in front of me? I applied my iron for the next curl by watching myself in the middle mirror, and there did everything backwards, as I looked into the one on the left. In due time, another successful curl! So that was the method. Some day before I am old and gray, I shall write a complete instruction book on the varied uses of triple mirrors, and my chief point will be this, " decide what you think you ought to do, then do the opposite. " It is an infallible truth. Suz.vYNE M. Cai.i.ican, 1925. Paf t " Ofif llundri-ci Five .l,JiXk. ' •l-i tM ni i i »niimit it rii ' f i mi i W ' i ' mW!i EARTH ' S THE RICiHT PLACE FOR L V E It had been a hot day, hot and dr}-. Out of doors the fields had baked hard. Indoors the air had been steamed by the hot vapor that issued in Httle puffs from kettles of preserves on the stove. Now evening had come and the work was finished. The house was neat again, the chairs in their old, accustomed places, the kettles all set away in the cupboard. But it was still warm indoors. The mother and the little boy went out into the garden. It was a beautiful spot. There was a stone pathway up the middle — the little boy loved the coolness of it under his bare feet — and on either side of the path grew tall elms. At the end of the garden stood a grape arbor. B)- da} ' the leaves shut out the sun from the benches within; by night they allowed the wind to rustle through, softly, coolly. The little boy and his mother sat here now and talked. The mother had pushed her hair back from her warm face and had turned her collar down so that she might feel the breeze. The little boy had curled up beside her on the bench. The mother ran her fingers over the little head, through the moist dark curls, over the smooth forehead. The}- sat there thus, now talking low to each other, now listening to the night. Katydids chirped all around them in the cool grass. The little boy and his mother wondered where they were. One seemed to be hidden in the leaves abo e them. An endless chorus of frogs throbbed contentedl}- up from the creek a short distance off. From a neighboring farm, dogs barked. They could hear a man calling to them to be quiet and they could see his lantern glowing as he came out of the barn, crossed his yard, and then disappeared into the house. Even the sound of the door, as he closed it, carried across the intervening fields. The little boy sensed the life of the summer night in everything. The trees were alive; their branches swa}-ed when the wind passed through. Dimly he could see the thin stalks of flowers and shrubs bending backward and forward in the breeze. The grass under his feet was alive; it rubbed softh ' against his ankles. His mother was alive — he was alive. He put out his hand and rubbed it over the bench. Once upon a time this, too, had been alive. He turned his face up to the sky and then cried softly, " Mother, look. " The heavens, intensely blue and deep were filled with stars, millions of them, glowing and blinking away. The}- completely covered the earth in a roof that stretched upward from the hills, high, high up to the top of the dome and then down again. The little boy and his mother sat and looked at them. He wondered how far away they were. There was one star in the south, a big glowing one with a fine stream of light that pointed upward to heaven and with another that pointed downward to the earth. The little boy wondered how high it was. Unconsciously he stretched his hand out towards it, but he stopped before the motion was com- plete. " Alother, " he asked, " are the stars ver} ' far away? " " ' es, laddie, they ' re far, far off. They ' re millions and millions of miles away. " " Aren ' t any of them close to us? " " Ko, they ' re all far away. " " Where do the stars stop. Mother? " " They don ' t stop anywhere. There are stars as far, and as far as } ' ou can think. " " But isn ' t there some place where everything stops, mother, some place where there isn ' t an} ' thing, where it ' s the end of everything? " " Sonny mine, there is no end to space. It goes on and on, forever and e er. But }-ou mustn ' t bother your poor little head with such things. " The little boy sat quietly then, gazing up at the stars. He moved not the Pa ' f One Hundred Six ;JMiilYy),i,, Ht j liU,«w..Ji. i.«.» .-j+)Si.i ' ' i« Wi w:t ' - ' JN ' -4J ' iyliJLIkU. ' Ui j i " ' .

" " Bui didn ' t it ever start? " " No, it always has been. " " But when is it going to stop? " " Never. " The little boy was quiet again. Soon he crept up to his mother and snuggled under her arm. " .Mother, " he whispered, " everything is so big. }iold me. " His mother palled his arm. " Don ' t be afraid, sonny, the good (Jod will take care of us. ' ou won ' t fall off into ail thai space.

" But the little boy was trying to untangle himself from an infinit - of time and space. aguel)-, but most distressingly, he felt that he was out there somewhere in endless space, wandering about among the stars. Always there had been time, and before that there had been some more time, and before that, still more, and there always would be time! A choking sensation came over him, a feeling of being engulfed. It reminded him of the time that he had almost drowned in the creek, and of his struggles to reach the surface of the water. It was dark now. The wind was moving through the garden quietly. Every- thing was hidden in the darkness, everything but the tree tops that swayed rhyth- rnicall)- against the stars. The stars were far away, but the garden was close. The little boy and his mother were a part of the garden. Soon they got up and went towards the house. The little boy brushed against the bushes on the way. He loved to feel the homely rustle of the leaves against his skin. The stones of the pathway under his feet were very near. Even the air around him had a familiar, sheltering feeling. The earth was holding him close in its good old arms. Irene Grlhn, 1928. A BUBBLE I saw a fairy land, ethereal and colorful; Castles high on their rocky foundations. Elusive, angel-like creatures bowed before a throne, Creatures robed in delicate ombre fabrics; Fabrics fading from palest lavender to the royal, rich purple of the violet, Shell pink to the brilliant red of the hawthorn berr -. P ' rom pale green of tendrils to the cool blue green of Kentuck} ' grass. Bowed before a throne of gold — Gold as the dandelion that flaunts her saucy head in spring, Gold as an autumn sunset, — Then suddenly the bubble burst. Alph. McKellar. 1928. 9a Himmmmmir twrrniiiifS!im»f ' . REMINISCENCE I passed an old brown house the other day, Shaded by trees that lined a quiet street. On either side, prim houses, smugly neat, Kept them aloof by fence or hedge, but it. Careless of sagging roof and swaying sill Seemed quietly to brood on other days — Sitting in faded dignity where once it stood The proud and stately home of high-born folk. Its shingles moss-grown, weathered. And its ells Covered protectingh ' by sheltering vines. The lily-of-the-valley bed beneath the hemlock tree Had spread and spread each spring unheeded. Until it nearly filled the small front yard. The plots of sweet, old-fashioned flowers — Daisies and bachelor ' s button, phlox, and mignonette — Here somewhat weed-grown and unkempt, They, too, held memories of happy days, And dreamed — Caring as little for the weeds and grass As did the house for gradual decay. A-down the sloping lawn a moldering summer house Showed through a clump of lilacs growing there. And here some grey-eyed girl might sit and dream Forgetting the open book, the patchwork still to do. Tall blue delphiminum and plumes of fern Showed where her garden once had bloomed And where — Coming from out the house at eventime To watch the moon slip up between the trees,. She must have met her lover. And the scent Of lilac evermore reminded her of him. Helen Ford, 1925 P -. LOVE They do not know — who say that love is blind, That those who love see only what is fair; Who else would have the pow ' r or will to find Those flaws which only keenest sight can bare. How wrong to say that love will dim the sight Or dull the taste, and make us but her slave! hen it transforms, as much as day does night, A lowly mind into a spirit brave. Though love can see with watchful, ardent eyes, The faults about which no one else would care. Its wish is not to mock or criticize. Instead to make more consummate and fair. Gertrude Runge, 1928.

" THE STORY OF HEDDA HARE There comes a time in the life of every one when fate Diehls the cards in such a way that we leave our homestead with its A orru chairs, Loztr foot-stools and .R; mj ' music, and set Foote into the waiting world. This time had come for Hedda Hare. She was going away to College. She did not like to leave her safe. Sure home at the top of Tuthill and make such a Suddard change into the cold, Grimm world, (for so she had heard it called) but her Berends thought it would be Fein for her, and her brother, a typical Boyd, Demanded that she go, — or he would go. I have said — note, — that he was a typical boy; he loved Graham crackers, his name was Dick but folks usually called him Fritz and his hair was Brown; all in all he was a Kuehn boy when not covered by his Kapp: in speaking of his sister he invariably said she " gave him a Paine, and wasn ' t as nice as Shuster be. " But this is digression. To return to Hedda — Let us skip mercifully over the interval of her preparation for departure to the ultimate morning. She asked her father and brother to help her pack but Niederman would help her so Samuels the chauffeur packed the impedimenta belonging to the Young daughter of the house into the good old Packard and fixed the Boltz of the car. After a fit of Cofrin which was finalh relieved by ff ' ater Hedda had finished Bucklin her galoshes; and there remained only the good-byes to be gotten through with. She knew her leaving would Grueber mother, and in truth her own heart was sadly Pearsed, but she drew upon her Iron will, kissed her Hull family fondly, and hearing the Home as a signal from Samuels that it was growing late, skipped Coyely from the house Whitcomb in hand and set her face toward college to become another Gapping freshman.
