MOUNT IDA SCHOOL SONG
TUNE : "Fair Harvard"
Mount Ida, we sing of your praises so dear,
You shall ever be first in our hearts,
Theres charm in these school days that in after years
We vainly shall seek for apart.
Dear Alma Mater! We love you so well,
Our loyalty pledge We to you
Not only for school days that quickly are gone
But we promise for all the years through.
Theres a love of these school days that none can replace,
A loyalty stainless as light,
And We'll stand by each other for good or for ill,
As we stand by the green and the White.
Then here's to our school! May it prosper, indeed,
May its joys be each year more and moreg
May its flowers bloom on with each spring that returns,
More fragrant and fair than before.
We have many ideals that We strive to attain,
Many Sinais we fainly would climb:
And if comes disappointment, there's heartache and pain
For the longed-for and distant sublime.
But this be our motto-whatever We do,
We will make new endeavor our ruleg
Be honest and brave, and above all be true
To the honor and love of our school.

The Mount Ida Seal in itself is a thing of beauty,
lt was drawn up by an artist, from plans conceived
by George Franklin Jewett, the founder of the school.
It represents the torch of Wisdom surmounting a
shield in Whose center is the book of knowledge, The
shield is placed on a background of green, one of the
school colors. Green typifies the beautiful verdure
always associated with Mt. lda in Greece. The Word
Ida means Wooded summit. The gold band sur-
rounding the green is a symbol of the golden deeds
to which We hope the students Will aspire. The
White band is to represent the ideals of character We
hope to build in the school,

EAR YE! Hear ye! It is the wish of the graduating class of 1931 to
bestow upon a number of the more fortunate members of the school
such gifts as they possess and deem desirable for donation. Our generosity
is overwhelming and the few who receive our gifts have not been chosen
without great arbitration.
Primarily, our revered and honored President leaves her sensitive nose
for detecting sour edibles to the residents of New Pay, in order that they
may be able to discover the nature of the day's menu and plan their absences
accordingly. May you ever remember it as the beacon light of the class of '3l.
To whomsoever may aspire to the notoriety of a school celebrity, Janet
Beecher leaves her incognito of "Daniel Boone" which she has faithfully
upheld during the past year.
To the incoming freshmen, Georgia Lasley leaves her ample virtuosity.
And, young frosh, be informed that such a sufficiency is not to be sneered at!
To those who may be interested, Shirley Mahl leaves her as yet unrequited
passion for "Poslum" because it is always pleasant to have some sort of a
To those interested in the art of modeling, "Bea" Roe leaves her luxurious
cerise locks, in order that they may pose with perfect ease for natural-color
To the saddest members of our clan-the campused ones, Athena Stavros,
Edith Pinkos, Lois Matthews, Anita Lamb, and Virginia Hatchell leave
their daily lunches down town, in order that those campused weeks may seem
To Barbara Baldwin, 'ALibby" Hurd leaves that athletic appearance, be-
cause somehow, it helps, and it's one thing to be, and another thing to appear.
To Virginia Mason, Eleanor Showalter leaves that sweet Southern drawl.
To the highest bidder, Marion Ehlers leaves her dimples--pride of the
To the future inhabitants of Old Fay, Hazel Harris leaves her resident cat.
To Allen and Harry, Louise MacNaughton leaves her immense capacity
for moving trunks and other light articles of furniture after 9:45 at night,
in order that they may acquire greater efliciency.
To the Science Club, Winifred Peterson leaves her little green car, in order
that their trips may be more extensive.
To future college-prep students, Georganna Clement leaves a vast and
comprehensive knowledge of the maths.
To the winner of the 1932 Mt. Ida Horse Show, Sarah Moss Phillips
leaves one riding habit of the hothouse variety, thus known because it has
solely existed within and rarely ever without.
To those interested in New Hampshire swains, Aurelie Tremaine leaves

er versatile beret. CBecause, just betwen you and me,--we think that's
what did itlj
To those nervous during examinations, lola Silver leaves her fingernails
---food for thought.
To Miss Ramsay, Clara Kent leaves her fourth floor hermitage, as a refuge
from the trials of school.
To the school in general, Nancy Jane Cassaday leaves a large leather-bound
volume of Emily Post, in order that they may learn during their tender
years, the meaning of the expression, 'igive him a hand."
To the library, Meryl Mauch leaves the complete works of Darwin in
order that her name may long be remembered and honored.
To Ruth Eerris, Marion Bacon leaves the presidency of the Cilee Club.
To future musicians, Betty Lewis leaves the red room, in order that their
jaded minds may find some small recompense.
Carolyn Fay is greatly undecided whether to leave the mouse in number
3 or HlVlaurice" to Senior House. The last we heard, the mouse was in the
With deep regret, Eleanor Locke leaves "Ebony" to Charlie, because

why, that's where "Dottie" App lives, isn't it?"
And speaking of i'Dottie" App, that reminds us that she's leaving you
underclassmen that business-like air-"Excuse me-the printer's coming." .
To all the undecided Juniors, Amelia Sheldon leaves her ability to cook
as well as write-eemagine being able to do both!
To future-"beginners," "Dot" Cone leaves "Pieface"-"many a weary
hour have I spent!"
if-To "Bee" Menaguale, Leslie Friend bequeaths her charter membership
in the "Pun-of-the-Morning" Club, together with her ten best puns, -
To Rosalind Roulston, Doris Locke leaves the full extent of her dramatic
ability. i'Raulie's" had a lot left for her now-we old Seniors expect big
Then, last of all-but of course, not least, Selene Reiner leaves that studi-
ous aspect to the frivolous Erosh. We put Selene last because we like to have
our memory perpetuated along with Euclid, Socrates, and other great students.
To the entire school, Senior House leaves their tardy permissions for
meals-"We serve meals any hour of the day or night."
Be it know then, this is the last will and testament of the Senior Class of
1931, drawn up and sealed this second day of June, year of our Lord, one
ousand nine hundred thirty-one. Ring out the old-ring in the new'
SHORTLY after I ended my tour for the summer of 1950, appearing
before the crowned heads of Europe as "The Mathematical Wonder," I
became inquisitive as to the whereabouts of some of my old classmates at
Mount Ida. Knowing Janet Beecher to have an establishment in the city,
I looked her up in the classified ads--yes, there it was:
Janet Lulu Beecher
Trunk-moving done successfully between the hours of 5 and 7 A.M.
"You sleep: we move"
COHicial trunk-movers for Jewett Hall, Mount Idaj
I knew Janet would be a success at that-how well I remembered the good
old days when I was recalled to consciousness by a gentle bang! Wham! of
trunks overhead at 5:30 in the morning. Ah, yes-good old Janet. She
must be superb! Excitedly, I 'phoned her. Yes. she would spend the week-
end with me at my hotel and we would be able to talk over old times.
As I left the 'phone booth, I was confronted with a blatant poster, ad-
vertising, HB. C. L. R. Hairdye and Germicidef' picturing a Vermillion-headed
female extending a bottle of the fluid. "Blond Curls Look Red: Be Clean,
Look Right." Oddly enough, it seemed to me I'd seen that face before-
"Bea" Roe-to be sure! Now a famous young woman: we expected great
things from "Bea" after her release from Syracuse.
The next thing of interest was a soap-box orator on the corner, shouting
loudly, i'Bring.the kiddies over here and have their photos snapped on a
pony! Treat the kiddies! Nice little pony! Give the kiddies a treat! Only
takes three minutes!" Why, it was Georgia Lasley. living up to her old
reputation of photographer for the IDLER. Not bad, I thought, and looking
up, a scrolled gilt sign caught my eye:
Sarah Phillips, Charm School
'Send your daughter to my select finishing school. Give her the opportunity
of my extensive experience." My attention was then quickly called to a
woman and man each pushing a go-cart and pulling a coaster-wagon
crammed with children. 'AMarion," I cried, and sure enough, it was Marion
Ehlers and her husband, "Ken," in the city to "see the sights."
As I entered the foyer of the hotel where I was to meet Janet, I read the
announcement that the i'Russian Choir, The Singing Horsemen of the Steppes
will sing at Carnegie Hall, August sixth, conducted by Marion Bacon."
This announcement was accompanied by a picture of her in tunic and
breeches, playing the flute. The next minute I espied Janet and after the
usual greetings were over, she said, "Do you remember Nancy Jane Cassa-
day?" Well, she is appearing in a circus at the XVinter Garden now and if
you'd like to see her, I think we can get tickets." While she was trying to get
the tickets at the desk, I observed a very boisterous party in a corner of the
lounge and discovered it to be Athena Stavros, Edith Pinkos and Lois Mat-
thews loudly discussing their famous subject, since they had recently estab-
lished a club for the abolishment of boarding schools.
As I passed through the hotel with Janet, she called my attention to a
sign announcing, 'fTremaine Beret Association." HThey're holding their
annual meeting," she said, "and I saw Aurelie in the same beret the other
day, that she used to wear at school. Same old Aurelie, same old beret."
This, however, surprised me not at all, for We all rather expected she would
come to this.
K ,- X
In the street, we hailed a cab and whom should the driver be but Winifred
Peterson. She has organized her own cab company and all her chauffeurs
drive little green Fords. Driving to the Winter Garden, we were stopped by
a mounted policeman, intending gruffly to reprove our driver for speeding,
anger turned to delight for our arrester was Eleanor Locke mounted on
Continuing up Fifth Avenue, I saw a sign, 'AlVIauch Monkey Emporium."
How well I remembered lVIeryl's fame at school! A bit further on, I saw
Anita Lamb and Virginia Hatchell hurrying out of an automat, and Janet
informed me that they now owned many of them, a great aid for school-
girls dashing downtown for luncheon.
Finally we arrived at the Winter Garden and we were first met at the door
by Eleanor Showalter, silently taking tickets, and chewing gum. As she
looked very glum and did not seem to notice us, we went on in and came
upon Carolyn Fay selling multi-colored balloons and licking spun candy off
her fingers. She looked very cheerful and seemed to be doing an excellent
business. As we walked toward our seats, wild strains of "Fair Harvard"
came to our ears and looking in the direction whence they came, we dis-
covered Betty Lewis playing the calliope. Great was our surprise when on
reaching our seats, we found UDot" Cone sitting there cheerfully eating
peanuts and scattering the shells for miles about her. She said she spent a
great deal of her time there now, for she liked to be among old friends.
While we were waiting for the circus to start, Janet told me a bit about
our old classmates. Amelia Sheldon is now editor of "Cupid's Diary" and
is doing exceedingly well. Clara Kent is head librarian of the Boston Library
and finds it very interesting. Hazel Harris has married an Argentine, and
now lives in Porto Rico. With a tear in her eye, Janet told me that Georg-
anna Clement was now at the state insane asylum-a hopeless case of math-
mania. While we sat there talking, Doris Locke entered, now a bleached
blonde, surrounded by many sables, three husbands, and seven children. She
was followed by all seven children, different in size, and each carrying a
balloon and a popcorn ball.
Then the parade began and in it was Iola Silver, splendid in purple velvet
and riding on the back of a white elephant. The first act of any interest to
us was that in which Nancy Jane appeared, marvelous to see in pink tights,
and riding bareback around the ring at a terrific pace. We now discovered the
ringmaster to be Louise MacNaughton, wearing a high silk hat and wielding
a long whip. Loudly she announced the sensation of the evening-App and
Wilkins, who had long since replaced Ringling's trained seals, by their mar-
velous nose act. This feat was indeed wonderful to see, for they even
walked on their noses-Lea's a bit red from the proximity of the lemonade.
On our way out we decided to see the side-shows and just outside dis-
covered Shirley Mahl ballyhooing a patent medicine van. She is still an
ardent admirer of Poslum, but deals also in Sloan's liniment and many
splendid tonics. In the side show, we saw the famous Madame Reinero-
wisest woman in the world. By this time a great crowd had gathered over
in one corner, waiting to see the "mermaid" With great curiosity we entered
and saw in a glass tank full of water, "Libby" Hurd gazing mournfully
forth. When we waved at her, she flicked her scale-encased feet and with a
bored yawn glided out of sight.
Calling this a day well spent, Janet and I returned to our hotel, to talk
over, once again, our friends of the Senior Class of '3 l.

A PLAY IN ONE ACT
TIME: June 4, l93l
PLACE: The Horseblock
CHARACTERS: The Sophomores
As the play opens, the sophomores are discovered perched precariously on
the horseblock, awaiting the arrival of a N. N. 6600. They are about
to depart for summer vacation. Suddenly a shriek goes up-"We have
forgotten Caesar!" One Sophomore detaches herself from the group and
rushes into the building, to return after some moments bearing a dog.
Another shriek-"Where is our memory box?" Marjorie tears off and soon
reappears bearing tenderly an orchid-colored box. On the last step she
stumbles and the box jounces from her arms to the Walk. A profusion of
memories bursts from it. There is "Raulie" at her dramatic best, "Raulie"
interested in the food which is supposed to remain in the kitchen: Marjorie
making announcements in assemblyg "Rags" playing the piano in study
hall: "Rags" being bad: 4'Peggy" Borg in the art room, Evelyn singing
in Glee Club, Jane not eating at table: these and many more come tumbling
out. With amusement and tenderness and some reluctance the girls pack
them back in the orchid box. They resume their positions on the horseblock,
ready to embark upon the adventures of vacation.

At the beginning of the year there is one proetor
chosen from each floor of the dormitory by the
representative of that dormitory.
24. What ho! We're off for another year, Old girls and new get
together for eight Mount Ida months chuck full of fun-and studying.
25. The new girls gaze in wondering awe at the remarkable dramatic
talent displayed by the old girls as they give 'ALochinvar" in the gym.
26. Everyone weeps big glassy tears because we've just had our first
student government meeting and found so many things we're not allowed to
do. Besides, there's a great deal of homesickness floating around.
27. With the help of ginghams and hair ribbons and coy lisps, the new
girls give a very baby party in the gym.
28. Our first church service is heard at the Old North Church in Boston.
We also peek at Paul Revere's young mansion and gasp at the audacity of
the neighborhood gargons,
29. Behold! The wonders of Massachusetts' historical background,
Concord and Lexington claim our attention for the day-when we're not
devouring fudge or cookies,
30. Another student government meeting.
2. Each girl, armed with a soothing coughdrop, ah-ahs and ou-ous in
front of Miss Morse until she becomes either a Hrst or second soprano, an alto.

cameras is focused upon it.

11. Peanuts and shells get together at the peanut party in the gym.
14. A few who are not disturbed by nightmares see "All Quiet on the
Vfestern Front" at the Paramount.
18. A large group sees Walter Huston in "Abraham Lincoln" in Boston.
20. A trip to Salem and Marblehead supplies fun for all. First, nine
million steps of Bunker Hill Monument had to be climbed and then-one
had to come down. The House of Seven Gables was ransacked, likewise
Mt. Ida pocketbooks.
22. Miss Allen starts a class in interpretive dancing. Now, we know the
girls looked-er-queer at Hrst, but please don't laugh because'-he who
laughs last laughs best.
29. Eirst grades. Oh Death, where is thy sting!
30. The old girls start initiating the new girls. lf you don't have too
much eyebrow pencil and lipstick on your face and too many sweaters and
dresses and coats around your own diaphragm, you might laugh at some of
the queer sights which confront you.
31. S-'more initiation. A few lucky girls are released for the evening
to attend the Horse Show.
1. Still the initiation plague rages through the school but finally breaks
up With a formal dinner and a relapse in the gym.
8. Harvard-Michigan football game, Michigan wins.
15. An interesting illustrated lecture on Australia-the Hjumping-off
place of the World." iPerhaps that accounts for the kangaroo's peculiar mode
22, Lantern slides and a lecture on the British Isles.
26. Home to turkey and chestnuts and cranberry sauce-ah! And late
hours, both morning and night-ah!
l. Well, We've all stuH'ed ourselves with turkey and chestnuts and
cranberry sauce, and dulled our brains With late hours both morning and
night, so now-back to earth for a While.
6. Miss Scranton murdered Mr. Shortchange but no one ever suspected
her until, after several other people had been tried in the Green Room, she
up and 'fessed.
12. The Christmas dance, This, to all appearances, took place in
Alaska or thereabouts. The effect, at any rate, was cooling!

18. Mrs. Lovgren's class presents "Prince Chap," a delightful Christmas
19. Christmas carols at five o'clock in the morning and then-home for
the jolly old vacation!
7. Back to school again, with the glitter and frost of the New Year in
our hearts and fond resolutions on our lips.

heavily for their vacation merrymaking with dreadful attacks of ptomaine
poisoning, indigestion, etc.
ll. The Green Room is being "touched up" so Vespers is held in
16. An illustrated lecture on several European countries. Mr. MacGill
announces that we may have the long Week-end after exams. Hurrah!
24. A pajama party in the Green Room. Miss Scranton gives a most
interesting and colorful sermon, y
26. A large group of girls start the operatic season by hearing
27. The entire school has a long, long session in the Green Room with
Mr. McGill, concerning certain Mt. Ida rules. Supper is delayed fifteen
minutes but no one minds except, maybe, the chef.
28. Exams are on in full force,
29. More ditto.
30. They're all over and the girls leave for a refreshing Week-end.

in the gym presided over by Miss Marsh, the social dancing teacher.
1 27. The swimming meet. And Mt. Ida water sprites display their skill
28. An ingenious set of tableaux is given in the gym at the 'AIDLER
l. We are all excused from attending church in the morning so that we
may go to hear Dr. Kinsolving at the Unitarian Church in the evening.
8. A mighty storm is raging, so Mt. Ida hires two busses and goes
down to the sea-and gets all wet and invades poor Ham's. A lovely
vesper service in the chapel is a fitting close to a perfect, though somewhat
9. A few visit the sea again. The weather inland is dryer than yester-
day but the water in the ocean is just as wet. Henceforth many dreadful
clams and starfish are found in unexpected places.
10. Going, going, gone! Miss Scranton auctions off towels, pajamas,
handkerchiefs, and numerous other articles at the annual auction.

HEAR ye! Hear ye! Senior House shelters all the Nlount Ida celebrities
for 1931. The following received their coveted titles by popular vote
of the student body:-
Doris Locke is the best looking girl--and no wonder, for anyone possessing
a petite figure and beautiful blond wavy hair will surely become a Hgloriiied
girl" sometime in her life, according to Beatrice Fairfax.
Dorothy App is the most popular and best all around person. She has
the distinction of having gained her poularity overnight. At first glance
none of us were very impressed, but when she sat down at the piano-ah-
we all gathered 'round and fired off requests to which she responded readily
with the exception of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" Cwhich was in
Lesson IX and had been delayed in the mailj. On the hockey field she is
easily recognized by the way in which she wields a stick. No one can give
impersonations so funny as hers, or write so well and quickly Cshe uses
the Gregg systemj.
'ALibby" Hurd is our most athletic student. We don't know just what
it is that has given her so much ability in this line but strongly suspect that
it is because she cares for her feet so tenderly-using Absorbine, Junior.
Lea Wilkins, perhaps better known to her immediate friends as 'AI-Ienny,"
has won the rare honor of being the cutest girl in school. To those of you
who are well versed in the meaning of this word-you will immediately recall
that the word "cute" has a double meaning. One means "kissable" and the
other-bow-legged. 'NuH' sed! All joking aside, though, "Coon really is
just a small-sized package, full of cuteness--and, I ask you, what more could
Nancy Jane Cassaday is perhaps the first "Irish" person at Mount Ida to
be called the most courteous. She is always falling on her knees before
members of the faculty, allowing them to pass. At meals she is very patient
and polite, never speaking or asking for anything that is missing.
.,,L- Next we have a unique combination of the wittiest and most studious
person in one-Leslie Friend, but then isn't she deserving of both? Her
puns have the distinction of having been able to penetrate beneath a few
hard skins here and really cracking them-whereas pages of books invariably
curl up and die whenever they see her coming,
Virginia Worthen is our best dressed girl this year. Her clothes number
many of all types and I feel it my duty to tell all who are envious that
you, too, could have beautiful clothes by writing to "The Woman's Institute"
as she does.

NOW let us turn our attention to that ever-popular battleground-
"Athletics." The year began with the choosing of teams: Sara Moss
Phillips was elected leader of the W'h1'te Team, Elizabeth Hurd of the Green.
As soon as they knew their teams, the sprightlier girls Hed eagerly to the
hockey Held. An excited umpire yells tif one may be permitted the word-
it is most expressivelj "Ground-stick! Ground-stick."' Sticks flash, and
eyes flash, and bare, banged legs flash. Then breathless girls Hing themselves
into their rooms and gently explore their various ecchymoses fl-l'mlj and
staunch the swift-flowing blood with mystic mercurochrome symbols. But
regularly, battle-scarred though they be, they appear on the Held at each
performance. Those hardy souls were:
Nancy Jane Cassaday
Sara Moss Phillips
While this was going on, other hardy souls coaxed little white pellets from
one end of a grassy slope to another-they were playing golf. The kind
instructor, Mr. Blank, disturbed the soft breezes with naughty words-
those girls always looked up just as the club was on the downward swing,
they always swayed their hips like professional hula-dancers, their wrists
were so weak! But "those girls" continued to chase the elusive ball in a
state of blissful unconcern.
On turning to the basketball We find that it has been sadly idle-has
indeed, grown thin and saggy from misuse. 1Oh, well! Blame it on the
2lDLER ppg, ,
So we pass on to the swimming-pool and find in its cool green depths, the
strong-stroked, proud-chested Senior and Junior Life Savers, the boastful
splashing Hin-betweens"' and, always, the various lesser fish who were just
beginning to "flip their fins." The Swimming Meet was the outstanding
water attraction of the year and all enjoyed it in spite of splashed stockings
and dresses. The events and their winners are as follows: sidestroke Qfor
formj-Leslie Friend, first place, Virginia Worthen, second: underwater
race-Eleanor Lydeckerg breast stroke-Betty Lewis and Theodora Leonard,
first place, Edith Angevine and Virginia Worthen, second: relay race Cone

relay race Ctwo lengths of poolj-Elizabeth Hurd, Margaret Huyck, Theo-
dora Leonard, Kathryn Parshall: candle race-Aurelie Tremainel obstacle
race-Betty Lewis, Florence Lucas and Marjorie Wills.
With winter came winter sports-the toboggan slide was put up in back
of Jewett Hall and was, at times, quite usable: skiis, likewise became quite
popular: and long treks to the distant skating rink, with short intervals of
skating in between, were undertaken by those fortunate ones who possessed
skates and the price of a hot dog.
Much credit is due Miss Early for the excellent training which she gave
our enthusiastic equestriansg with persuading and leading they ventured
forth upon the road-the fearsome road-and once some even went as far as
the Charles River Country Club where they met Miss Allen with a group of
hikers, and all had tea. Towards the end of the year the girls, and like-
wise the horses, showed their skill and versatility in our proud exhibition-
the Horse Show.
A class in tap-dancing was begun this year and the girls took to it like
ducks to water. Then, to develop the butterfly instinct in young woman-
hood, Miss Allen established an interpretive dancing classg on certain Thurs-
day afternoons one might see coy danseuses in close-fitting pink and green
and blue fleshings, Hitting hither and yon, chasing bubbles, or being chased by
waves, or rocking dolly byelowl
Tennis and archery received but little attention and no Helen Willses or
Robin Hoodses were produced: however, both sports survived, though they
gasped for breath in doing so.
Must I mention gym--violent "jerks"-as the English call them-with
Miss Allen torturing our bones to the utmost, and stretching our muscles
till We were sure We were being put to a horrible, slow, medieval death!
All the rolling and bouncing and pounding would have dismayed many a
heartier soul than ours.
And, of course, there Were long, invigorating tramps through the hills
and dales of the innumerable Newtons, always with hats and gloves!
I still insist that the most vigorous, and, incidently, most nerve-wracking,
exercise which any of us indulged in, was the thrice-daily sprint to the dining
hall--an excellent and eflicient appetizer!
But in spite of bent bones and hockey-Wounds and Water-clogged ears,
ouldn't be school without athletics, and athletics wouldn't have

Gyrations are made by the notable few
Who wish for diversion, exercise new,
Yearning for stiff necks, dislocations and much
Cracking of bones, sore muscles, and such.
Miles quickly are covered by those who would walk,
And 'lathlete's foot" is the topic of talk,
No gym today is a sentence unheard of
Rain or shine we are present and move at the word of
All manner of orders and shouted command
That rings in our ears: wrecks the peace of our land.
Swimming has interested those who are braver:
The three stages: pollywog, splasher, Life-saver.
If anyone's skill is to blaze on the court
Let her start early for her days are short:
Unless, too, she may be a devotee of track
For she will acquire a pain in the back
Mainly from climbing the hill after a gamer
Advice from experience: she will ne'er be the same.
Aesthetic dancing! Such a joy to the eye
To see butterflies flit, to see lovely swans die.
Many the colors: many the dances:
Many the people this fair class entrances.
Qh the joys of May and spring are many!
'Tis the time of the pageant-and warm days tif anyj
Now out on the lawn on the new-mown grass
Trip the feet of many a light-hearted lass.
Great is the rejoicing in the spring of the year
And glad are our hearts: pageant-practice draws near!
Unless you are fond of a bruise and a nick
Take not in your hand, the fatal hockey stick.
Still if you would sacrifice knees or a shin
Take up your weapon: barbarously begin.
Golf is the game many would play
Would you could see some, many a day.
If the weather is cold, or the weather is warm
We will always endeavor to improve our form,
Riding! The apex! The goal of us all!
The lure of the frightenedg the home of the fall!
Let me say finally in behalf of our throng
lf you would play baseball, your days are not long.
Still, they all have their good points, both outdoors and in . . .

By J. J. Henner
THE painting is not one of Henner's best known works, However, it
has qualities which, in a collection of pictures, make it stand out as
individual. The History of Art Class of l93l, in choosing a favorite
painting, chose The Reader, knowing nothing of the artist's ability. It
has an interesting spotting of light and dark: only the essentials are used
and minor details avoided, all of which tends toward the making of an
excellent composition. The girl may have been an individual known by
the painter, yet she is a fine symbol of girlhood. Absolute concentration
and deep interest in a serious episode in the book are revealed on the sweet
Jean Jacques Henner, H829-19055, son of a peasant, was a French
painter. He studied at Altkirch and in 1846 he entered Ecole des Beaux
Arts in Paris. In l855 he returned to Bernweiler lAlsacej, his native place,
for two years to paint portraits, a collection of which is in the museum at
Altkirch. Later he joined the studio of Picot in Paris and took the Prix
de Rome 118585 with a painting of "Adam and Eve finding the Body of
Abel." He first exhibited at Salon in l863, 'ABather Asleep," and sub-
sequently contributed more or less regularly until 1903. He died in Paris
on July 23, 1905.
The artist is best known for his paintings of nude figures posed in ideal
landscapes. He also painted a number of portraits. There is a self portrait
in the Umzi at Florence. In l924 the Henner museum, comprising about
two hundred paintings, drawings, and lithographs bequeathed by the artist's
nephew, was inaugurated in the Avenue de Villiers in Paris.

OWN the receiving line, composed of Mrs. Jewett, Mrs. MacGill, Miss
Ramsay and Dorothy App, trailed young girls on the arms of their
escorts. The smell of pine was enough to make the dancing couples realize
the nearness of Christmas. Reindeer and penguins-blue lights and rose,
reflected a coldness unfelt by the laughing, dancing crowd.
In between dances, the girls and their escorts were seen hastily consulting
their programs, and with new selections, girls were seen dancing off, partners
After the Grand March, a chance for everyone to see everyone else, supper
was served in the Green Room. Mrs. Lovgren and Miss Wachter were
hostesses, receiving in the livingroom and pouring the after-dinner coffee.
Crumbled pieces of white tissue paper could be seen at intervals over the
dance floor marking the place where a favor had been unwrapped. These
favors were black leather cigarette cases with hammered silver tops, set off
by the Mount Ida seal. Each one would hold a package of cigarettes and
on opening a spring raised the package above the top of the case.
The applause after the last dance made extra dances a necessity. The last
minute conversation was lengthened to such proportions, inexpressible in
minutes, that bells were heard ringing an unwanted message of good-bye,
much to the amusement of everyone.
Half an hour later a babble of voices could be heard on every corridor,
discussing the dance. Out of the babble, one phrase could be heard very dis-
tinctly, "Such a peachy dance for a girl's school. I had a simply glorious
time I "

MAY DAY PAGEANT
DONE all in delightful pantomime, this is a very sweet story, whose chief
character is an enchanted sun-dial, supposed to bring everlasting truth
to lovers who "plight their troth" over its disk. The persons concerned are
the Princess Johana, Count Raymond, and his heir and nephew, Prince
Robin, who are both in love with her, the Fool and the Harper.
When the Count discovered Prince Robin's love for Johana, he banished
him and had Johana, his ward, brought to his chateau. He dared not marry
her immediately, however, on account of the Harper's opposition: and when
he decided to banish him, Robin had returned.
But all this has happened before the curtain rises. The action we see takes
place on three Spring days, first, second and third. On the first day, the
Harper hears of his banishment. All his goods, except his harp, have been
sold and he must leave the country forever. Left alone for a minute by the
sun-dial, he plays his swan-song while many little Fees come from the wood
and dance about him. Soon the harp falls from him and he lies, overcome,
on the ground. The Fees disappear, except the Queen, who, with her wand,
brings him back to consciousness and leads him offg
On the second day we ind Robin and Johana making love over the Dial,
while the Fool, leading the "Hours of the Day" dances about them. Pres-
ently the Pool spies someone else coming. The "Hours" glide out and the
Fool, after trying in vain to warn the lovers, hides behind the bushes. The
Count and many nobles enter. The Count, furious, orders the lovers away
and they are roughly dragged out by attendants. Hired woodchoppers are
about to demolish the Dial when Raymond is seized by a brilliant idea,
why not be married to the Princess over that Dial? The Pool, appearing,
pretends to approve: and they rehearse the wedding with him as Bride.
The next day is that of the wedding. With usual ceremony the Count
and Bride are married over the Dial. But when, after both have kissed the
enchanted disk, the Bride lifts her veil, instead of Johana's face we see the
scarlet leering face of the Devil. The Count swoons dramatically and is
carried off by attendants, the Devil following and jeering.
's opportune moment Johana and Robin, both bound, enter from
' ns, With the Harper's aid they are freed and instantly
t scarcely accomplished when news comes of Count
ns out for the best and the lovers, we hope
married, which act is bu
Raymond's death. Thus all tur
live happily ever after.

AT FOUR o'clock We all assemble in some remote corner of the building
and wait, noisily hushing each other so that the guests may get a favor-

half an hour of concentrated marching, half a step at a time, we reach the
chapel, exhausted by the nervous strain.
It is not until at night when we lie awake in bed that the thrilling, digni-
fied voice of the organ comes back to us: and with its help we recall the beauty
and Wisdom of the sermon and appreciate it. ln many, many years, when our
youth seems but a dim haze somewhere in the background, that music and
advice will still come back strongly as we heard it on that remembered

URING the last eleven years I have encountered various types of students:
D obnoxious, intensely interested, and heavenly. A school, it seems, in-
variably brings out the best or worst points in an individual's character.
. . , . t toy
Take, for example, the obnoxious student. She, let us imagine, sits nex
he makes herself annoying by re-
peatedly borrowing paper, pens, pencils, erasers and everything that you have
that she hasn't. She never hears or remembers an assignment and expects
you to be her private secretary. Commenting on your recltations seems to
opposite, in back of, or in front of you. S
be her favorite pastime.
The intensely interested student is slightly better than our first type. She,
also, may sit in any position in your immediate vicinity. She invariably
ears lasses a strained look and scuffed shoes. Her pathetic ambition to
W g , ,
glean every speck of knowledge from her text book, at first astonishes you,
then interests you-and finally after your own humble scholastic efforts
have been the target for a few sarcastic remarks, disgusts you. She never
' ' - h l d-
borrows, but makes up for that by sympathetically offering after sc oo a
vice and assistance when you flunk your monthly exam. She reads Shake-
speare and Keats and glances with disdain at the novel you've been success
fully concealing under cover of your history book.

The heavenly pupi
never asks the assignment-rather, you ask her. She never borrows-but
lends cheerfully. She doesn't rate A or D, but B. She washes her neck, and
does not eat onion sandwiches. Now and then she flunks an exam. She
does not write original English themes to be read aloud to the intense bore-
dom of the rest of the class, She is, in fact, perfect, However, she is not
conscious of her virtues and does not wear a saintly look. Her nose is never
shiny and she does not comb her hair in class. She makes a good appearance
and is always friendly and jolly.

IN THE GARDEN
N THE garden
Among the flowers, purple and magenta,
Lie cigarette stubs,
Hurled by dreaming lovers
Like pale forget-me-nots they spatter the ground:
The ashes of burning questions and answers
Thought but unsaid.
Soon the rain will beat them into oblivion-
Roots in the garden will twine around them,
And their flowers will be stained Vermillion
From the dreams left unsmoked.
I HAVE WALKED OUT IN MIST
I HAVE walked out in mist,
Under a misty moon,
Breathing White moonflowers
Seeking the silver too soon.
I have had cool leaves
Wet with warm rain
Lie close to my face:
Heard a small Wind complain.
Rising out of a clinging mist.-
I have seen cold town light:
And the shadows that rose above,
Lingering and White.
I have seen houses then,
With gardens faded, gone,
I have felt night's breath
Cool on my cheek.
I have walked back in mist
No Words to speak.

A NIBBLE OF CHEESE
HEN I think of the school days that now are all past,
And of the girls who lived over here,
When I think of Commencement that's faded long since,-
Goshl it seemed such a short, short year.
Those girls sure were great and packed full of fun,
I never a dull moment had-
I was racing around, crawling here-crawling there-
Gee! to think of it makes me feel bad!
There were always some girls making some kind of noise,
But now it's so quiet and still-
It seems sort of funny-not pleasant at all-
Get used to it? Don't think I will.
They'd come over at nine, chuck full o' delight,
Laughing and talking, fithey talked most all nightj
They went in their rooms, but were soon out again-
You might just as well try to keep chicks in a pen.
At 9 :3O sharp, a huge bell would clang.
Much shuffle of "vic's" shut off with a bang.
"Come, chilluns, to bed-now hurry, my dears."
They'd all laugh at that, their cheeks wet with tears.
"Now, where is Jane Rayburn? Is Aurelie in here?
Has Leslie come over yet?- She'1l be late again, I fear. -an
I,et's see now-that's Nancy and Shirley and Bea.
I must look for the others-I wonder-dear me!"
Much visiting of rooms and calling of names
Were indulged in from then on by this Senior "coxswain
At 9:45 the bell clanged once more.
At 9:55 each girl shut her door.
At 9:56 one creaked open again.
And out into the hall came Aurelie Tremainel
The upstairs was quiet 'cept for three girls I know.
They carried on turrible till I'd like to have told them so
lVlacNaughton and Bacon were both out of bed:
Lou teaching Bacon to stand on her head!
Noiselessly-quietly-like a large ton of bricks,
Aurelie creaked across the hall, Qthat sly little minxj
Much laughing and singing went on in Room 3,
E D L E Q .ss
Hurd and Fay were both yelling, "My little doggie-whoopeeI"
The girls in Dot Locke's room were trying to sleep-and study in the
closet, Ca most difficult featj.
Slowly and cautiously, like a fat kewpie doll,
Leslie Friend crawled from her room, grumbling over many a fall. -
This kept up for an hour, some came and some went.
And sometimes some of them back to their own rooms were sent.
They would gather, maybe ten of them, in a room meant for two,

Jane Rayburn didn't quite know how to disappear when caught, and
One night saw her climbing chimneys-but let her tell the tale of woe.
There were times when Aurelie'd growl awful-
And when Nancy Jane just couldn't grin.
And when everything seemed all terrible and the blues began to set in.
There'd be crabbing-and much fighting, till I really was afraid,
To venture forth from my cubby-hole lest I come back a tailless maid.
Some of them would study from 9:00 'till the bell-
Some would write letters-while others slept well.
But whenever you ventured to stay up late at night-
A tap on the door-then-"Please-PUT OUT THAT LIGHT!"
I once heard someone growling about a residence standing grade.
"This is a gross injustice," said the innocent little maid.
So down the stairs she wandered-and asked the teacher dear.
"What made my mark come down so, and make me quake in fear?"
The teacher took a blue book and paged it through and through,

These girls were most accomplished-they could sew and type and
They could wave your hair in no time-and could make you laugh
Gee-s'cuse me while I wipe a tear-these things make me feel sad-
Sometimes I wish they hadn't come a'tall-then I wouldn't feel so
But I hope, some day, tho' they're far away,
And thinking of Senior House,
They'll remember me, tho' I'm not much to see-
'Cause I'm just another mouse!
NEW YORK! Dazzling lights like rhinestones, smokestacks with long
inky forefingers trace their names across the sky. Bridges spanning the
water like bracelets on milady's wrist. Buildings with tall spires, needles
stuck in a pinicushion. Noise rising to shrill shrieks and lowering to a con-
stant hum-the song of Manhattan. People walking restlessly as caged
animals. Taxis like bees swarming to an unknown destination. A cobweb
of streets .... walled in with no chance for freedom. Deep gorges-with
traffic pouring through them. Canyons-holding the sharp melody of
heavy traffic. Harsh notes from the motor horns as they raise their voices
above the roar. New Yorkl, . . where premiers are made or closed. M311
owning all at night and in the morning taking alms from society. Night
clubs .... a blare of brassy noise .... a laugh .... liquor ,... women in
bright colored formals, men tottering ..... Dissipation ..,. Subways . . .

Night .... a wonderful panoramic view from above. Heights and depths.
Water like shiny black snakes curling around. Buildings built like giant
staircases etched against the sky and, from the top of the tower a glance
over the edge into eternity .... on all the lights .... a thousand times more
numerous than the stars-on the vast black cobweb of streets. .... Fragile
lights on the Jersey shore tremble like drops of wind-stirred dew. Ferries
crossing through the dark weave a golden thread into the night. The lights
robbing the sky of the stars that should be hers.
City of heart-break, broken promises. A city teaching the burden of soli-

Night is upon me like a black-gloved hand her lingers
pointing ever cityward I hear persistent noises from the town but
I do not listen because to me there is only one great deep
hush boats come and go tugs liners and ever
an occasional dory. The sea the smell of her ' the many
feelings in her are strong upon me like a fresh spring wind
the bitter waves roughly caress the wharves' great bodies
suddenly I am afraid of something that is waiting for
me how quiet it is some wakeful gull swoops wearily
before me and now I live again
and boats boats boats boats with queer names that
are an embodiment of all some buccaneering sailor wished
for, The "Mystic" a dirty old black tug perhaps was
meant to skim across the seven seas the moon is just
careening down the sky into that smooth gold sea of dawn a sailor goes
by singing "my bonnie lies over the ocean" and this is
no more real.

Song to be sung by Gareth during the period of
his kitchen uassalage.
Ay, a kitchen knave am Ile
While making brewis for the king
A merry song I sing.
I hew the wood,
Turn the broach
And eye the kettle on the fire,
Talk of knighthood and our king:
A merry, merry song I sing.
Ay, a kitchen knave am I!
In my own mind a knight am I:
Though for a loved one's sake
A kitchen knave I seem,
Smelling of kitchen grease:
And spending time in a place
That does not suit my pace.
But in some future day
My merry song Will say:
No longer a kitchen knave am I,
But a knight, a knight am II
Song to be sung by
A gleam of light, a vessel guled beholdg
The cup of Christ with holy emblem scrolled,
The cup of Christ more precious, yea, than gold,
My guide and guidance to innnity.
To cleanse my soul and reach the holy height,
And onward, upward, to the blinding light,-
And onward, upward, till I have in sight
The Holy Grail-the sign of purity:
So, go I forth upon this knightly quest.
And till I find it never take I rest:
And till I find it never cease the test,
But ever strive this miracle to see!
Perciuale who sought the Holy Grail.

THE GARDEN OF A LIFE
If I could write the song a life can tell, '
If I could sing the secret every poor heart knows,
l'd laugh the freckled laughter of the tiger-lily bell,
I'd hum the strange sweet softness of a rose.
The pearly dreaming of a lily's life,
I'd croon, and lilt the purple pansy's wide-eyed hope,
I'd not omit the droning that the bluet knows of strife
Nor give the passion flower too much rope.
l'd simply broadcast all the ugly ones
That people will condemn as weeds on any lawn
And sing them side by side with all the lovely ones
For each poor human soul to tune in on.
And then we'd have a symphony of dream buds
All found within the garden of a life.
My heart is a sail boat
Drifting on a sea of endless questions . . .
Answering Willows on the shore
My mind is the rnainsail,
The Waters might be too rough, but
Keeping a steady hand-a straight course . , .
I know a path through a woodland way,
Deep-lined with silver birch and pineg
' moss, small wood-folk play,
agrance's like wine. V

And there's one by the e
.Wher.e purple shadows lie as
Across the grass when dim grows the
And twilight silences are deep.
Wind song Whistling in the trees,
Making limbs blow in a soft breeze:
Rain song beating to the earth,
Making one cry a

Moon song filtering to the heart
Of man who loves and has to part:
Swan song droning into our ear,
As death, the inevitable, stalks near.

By the knowledge of her students you can always tell
That Miss Hall teaches science and she does it very well.
Good cooking, so 'tis said, wins the heart of every man:
And the girls are learning quickly with the aid of Miss Sherman.
In dramatics we have actresses and even actors, too.
But instructors like Mrs. Lovgren are very, very few.
A great many students take Latin from Miss Chase.
And there is no other teacher who could ever take her place.
Miss Blanchard is the lady who knows her United States
And her history classes are famous for making girls learn dates.
Miss Early has charge of riding Cbut everyone knows that of coursej.
When some of us take riding, don't you pity the horse?
Miss Wurl deals with the cubes and squares that go along with math.
Who will forget those examples that often started your wrath?
Mrs. Johnson and Miss Kendrick teach English, most of the time.
And it's their good instruction that helps me make this rhyme.
Miss Morse trains voices above the par,
Sometime her students willbe operatic stars,
For limber muscles and slender forms
Miss Allen strives, and often mourns.
Miss Welton teaches sewing, and when we make our clothes
They look so much like Chanel, their difference no one knows.
Miss Torres, our Spanish senorita, tries to teach us Spanish too.
So far she's been successful and her pupils are not few.
Secretarial subjects are not the easiest things to teach,
Yet Miss Smith gets by with honors fiShe surely is a peachj .
Giving rapid dictation for shorthand students fair
ls the job of Miss Cote, and how we progress under her care.
If you wish to be a pianist and be famous far and near,
Miss Nye and Dr. Loud will teach you, and you'll learn, never fear.
French and Italian are subjects we all like?
When taught by the Misses Wachter and Ambrose, they're more a delight
When you're in an artistic mood just go to Miss Corey:
You'll become famous artists and never be sorry.
Mt. lda is renowned for its principals: we hope she always will
Keep up that tradition set this year with Mr. MacGill.
Miss Ramsay, our dean, we shall always keep in mind
For the guidance that she gave us many a trying time.

THE three of us were staying in a little clock-village in the Black Forest.
One day, when wandering idly about its quaint streets, we fell into
conversation with a magnificent German oflicer, by whose face and bearing
he could at once be distinguished as a descendant of Apollo and Nero, with
perhaps such ancestors as Jeanne d'Arc, Caesar, Helen of Troy, and Henry
VIII hovering in the background. After a few minutes he relaxed his proud
shoulders a bit and asked to be allowed to show us the ancient palace of
the Queen of Wurttemberg.
Being at heart thoroughbred tourists, however much we denied it to our-
selves, we readily consented, saying we didn't in the least mind a five-mile
walk through the forest, CAh, we little knew what we were in forlj
For about a mile all went well, but then it started to rain--to pour, and
we were ready to turn back. Our oflicer, however. wouldn't hear of it: so
we trudged on, The deeper we got into the wood, the muddier became the
ground, and we found ourselves clinging alternately to each other and the
trees, as we slithered and slid about. The fine rain came down in a sheet.
plastering, with decisive sweeps, our hair to our faces and our clothes to our
shivering bodies: while large, heavy, definite drops from the trees thumped
us on the head or back with the force of a blacksmith striking an anvil.
Then, as if our misery weren't already great enough, snails-millions of
great, scarlet, shell-less snails-came galloping from the leaves and moss with
the unanimous idea of a bath while the bathing was good. What a fix we
were in! Why had we ever consented to accompany this mad officer on his
mad excursion? We were sure that the palace, ancient though it might be,
was not worth this misery. But such is the attraction of officers! and we
Suddenly we saw our officer, who had gone ahead to ind a short-cut,
sprawling full-length in the mud. Very undignified. I was the next to fall,
and my fate was worse than his, for I sat on a snail and heard him squeal--
surely he must have, when so rudely disturbed.
After what seemed like days and days of heroic floundering, we approached
the palace, looking less like three respectable Americans and a haughty
German officer than a group of half-drowned rats. Our oflicer would give
us no peace, but insistently dragged us from room to room through the
We were shown stained-glass windows of the fifteenth century and ex-
pected to go into ecstasies. We murmured "Beautiful," without enthusiasm,
thinking, "there are far more cheerful ones in America."
Mural paintings-Hat, dead faces were pointed out. "They look "
thought, Has we feel."

we each privately sighed.
At last, when we were absolutely exhausted, and stiff and sticky from
the mud and rain that was drying on us, we were permitted to sit for a
few minutes in some very hard, wooden chairs Cso that We wouldn't go to
Was it for this We had suffered so much?
