Death of Francis Marion Arnold
N THE evening of the May Festival, our beloved faculty
member and friend, Francis Marion Arnold, passed away.

and within five minutes was gone. The services were held at
Boydston Funeral Parlors, 4227 Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago,
on Saturday morning, May 25, at ten o'clock. Interment was at
In life he always wanted his friends to be happy and full of
faith in the goodness of the universe and the power of the spirit
of man to overcome every disaster, even death. We will not fail
him now in recognizing the glorious reality which is his today.

O PERIOD of the college history is complete without
some mention of the steadfast loyalty of its alumnae. I
recall a scene described in Bunyan's Pilg1'illZ,S Progress, Where
Christian was shown in the fire upon which Water was constantly
being poured, but Which, nevertheless, diminished not nor de-
creased in heat. On expressing his astonishment at the sight,
Christian Was taken to the other side of the wall, Where he saw
someone feeding the fire with oil. Then he understod Why the
Water would not quench it. The love and inspiration of our
alumnae were at all times the oil which kept burning the ire of
my enthusiasm over life until no indifference or failure, ill health,
lack of funds, or opposition from the outside world, had any
effect so long as I could look each Week into their faces, and
faces such as theirs illuminated with the light that 'never was on
land or sea., " From "Sketches Along Life's Way."

all good friends of David Russell. May his friendships at National hold him

campers of beautiful Oak Openings, the business friends who meet her at

Marguerite Taylor and her mother and son entertain their friends in 11
charming home which she has remodeled and redecorated in Early-American
fashion, and when the friends are envious, Mrs. Taylor is ready to help them
remodel and redecorate until their homes are equally quaint and charming.
The Chicago Council of Childhood Education of which she is an ex-
president, editors of the Presbyterian and Methodist boards for whom she
writes books, Marjorie Hardy of Cbild's Own Way fame, her sister Mary who
teaches in Denver and her young nephew of Boulder, Colorado, are among the
cherished friends of Agnes Adams.
A Friendship Fireplace in O. D. Frank's house at the Dunes is built of

earth. Around this fireplace "Out Dooru Frank and his friends gather on chilly
evenings, smoke their pipes and talk. We suppose they discuss flora and fauna.
As modest as Anne Williams seems to her student and alumnae friends,
she is really very proud of her old home at Cambridge, Massachusetts, of her
brother who is a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and her
two nephews, one a graduate of Harvard entering the field of education, and
the other an honor student there. What more have the Roosevelts to boast of?
The new baby in his home at Wheaton and his growing son and daughter
are no doubt the chief interests of Charles Davis, but other cronies are the
heroes of American history, the old hens on his farm, and the dealers who sell
real estate at auction. May his deals bring wealth to the family!

of Shakespeare, Tolstoy, O'Neill and Bernard Shaw, about whom she knows

Senior C ass Historq
NLY four years, and yet it seems ages since we humbly entered Harrison
Hall as "green Freshmen". How well we remember entrance week,
initiation, the "kid" party which our Senior Sisters gave for us, our first song
contest, and the biggest event of the year-the Freshman summer formal at
the Vista del Lago.
The second year found us a little bolder, a little more self-confident, and
bubbling with enthusiasm. During this year it was our duty to publish Chaff.
We also did our bit to beautify the College Campus at the Fall Festival. We
studied and played until February, when with shivers of excitement, we
ventured forth to meet Superintendents, and have our first taste of teaching
experience. Then came the Sophomore formal at the Wilmette Woman's Club.
We were all thrilled by the surroundings and the soft music furnished by
Barney Richard and his orchestra. At Commencement-the first we had ever
attended-twenty-four of our members carried the Daisy Chain through
which walked the graduating Seniors. How we envied them.
Another year rolled around. We were Juniors, and we had to show our
wisdom by our actions. By this time teaching was an old story, and we met all
of our problems with a smile. We had the privilege of working with the
Seniors in the Annual Children's Play and the Spring Festival. Our annual
formal, held at Skokie Country Club this time, was most successful.
Now we are in the final semester of our College career. We will never
forget the happy times we have had during this last year at National. The
monthly teas, our Class dinners, the Children's Play, and the Song Contest,
in which we won the baton, are events which are firmly stamped on our
memories. We have left to us Senior Week with teas, breakfasts, luncheons,
dinners, the dance, Baccalaureate, and Commencement, to which we are look-
ing forward. After we have each gone our separate ways, we will look back
upon our College life with deeper appreciation and gratitude.
E, THE Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-Five, do give
devise, and bequeath:
Firsf. To our Alma Mater: Our desires that all future classes be larger
and better, such as she deserves after struggling for four years with students
of our inferior mentality.
Sr'00m1'. To the Faculty: All underclassmen with the hope that they may
be educated in a manner at least half as efficient as this Senior class.
Third. To the junior Class: The privilege of parking in the parking lot
adjoining the school building, with the advice that success depends a great deal
upon the speed with which one leaves the car and is swallowed up in the
Fourth. To the Sophomore Class: We reluctantly leave our punctuality,
dignity, and sense of humor.
Fifth. To the Freshman Class: We nobly leave our intelligence and our
Sixth. To the Senior Class of 1939: The most valuable of all our posses-
sions-our loyalty and school spirit.
E, THE Senior Class give, bequeath, and devise in the following manner
and form our last possessions to the student body individually:
Firsf. Susan Ferguson in a valiant attempt to keep the grading curve in
operation wills to Dinky Weil her rather meager literary background.
Second. In realization of the fact that there should be someone in the
dorm to call the girls in the morning for breakfast, Frances Friedman wills
this remarkable ability of hers to Margaret Anderson.
Third. Susan Follansbee reluctantly bequeaths her singing ability to Dot--
Fourth. Jet Black in her eagerness to become a lady regretfully bequeaths
her burping ability to Sally Ann Dewey.
Fiffh. Laura Ebba Lindborg in her usual Girl Scout manner willingly
leaves to Gretchen Collins her unusual ability to write rip snorting term papers,
in hopes that Gretchen Collins will be able to use this talent in one of Miss
Agnes Adamis courses.
Sixih. The excellent habit of always attending classes is the final gift of
Esther Snook Davis to Marg. Jacobson.
Sc'L'e11fh. Ruth McCracken wills her ability as an equestrienne to Delphine
Eighth. Octavia Hurd leaves her willingness to cooperate to Mary Liz
Wildy in hopes that she will know what to do with it.
Niizfh. Priscilla Beals leaves her marvelous memory to Loretta Frick.
Telzfh. Helen Ruth Erickson in realization of the need as it presents itself
to her, leaves her ability to keep the room in order to Priscilla Haymond.
Eiezfmifh. Jane Nadeau is the fortunate recipient of Barbara Sinclair's cor-
respondence course, "How to Play the Piano in Ten Easy Lessonsf, See what
you can do with it, Jane.
Twelfila. Vinita Weston realizing the need for a better "feeling in through
there" bequeaths to Bettie Aylward her excellent posture.
Thirfcenfh. Hazel Mouritson reluctantly bequeaths to Antoinette Nelson
her fluency in baby talk.
F0lll'fC'C'l7l'!J. Betty Reeves is the sole successor to Eleanor Jost's coiffure.
Fiffeezzfh. Lola May Nelson is the joyful recipient of Gertrude Perry's
Sixfeenfh. Eleanor Ohnstad wills her ability to make every dance to
Selfczifecfnfh. In order that Evelyn Green will not feel hurt or lonely next
year, Marjorie Armstrong willingly bequeaths any contagious disease which
she may contract.
Page fblrfy fozu
Eigbfcwzib. June Anda hereby wills her giddiness to Kay Brown.
Nirzefcwzfb. We are confident that Jean Sutcliffe will be next in line for
the research scholarship as Susan Hunt has graciously donated her ability in
this line to her.
Twwzfiefb. Esther McAnulty bequeaths her knack of ringing fire alarms
to Maxine Capper.
Twcrzfy-jirsf. Violet Friedman bequeaths her red nail polish to Nancy

son s quiet ways and timidity

cups for dancing Lota Jacobey has decided to leave those cherished treasures
to Ruth Long.
Twwzfy-fifth. We are assured ean Brashears will present a strikingly
different appearance next year if the property Margaret Halverson has be-
queathed her goes into effect. Incidently the latter leaves to the former her
stature and curly hair
Twwziy-sixfla. Due to her inability to go on a diet Ida Worcestor wills
to Ruth Mills the privilege of trying to do so with the hope that she will be
Tuerzty-sezmtlo. Betty Torrison wills her shadow ability to Mary Hazu-
cha hoping to return next year and Hnd her just a shadow of her former self

for Cheese Souffle and Grape Egg Lemonade with the desire that she propagate
their fame forever

Junior C ass Historq
HREF years ago we entered these mighty portals, green as the grass, and
bubbling with enthusiasm. Throughout the three years we have main-
tained our enthusiasm and are now eagerly looking forward to our senior year.
The Senior Class of '33 entertained us first with a clever cabaret party
which introduced us to faculty and students alike. The next great event in
our Freshman year was the class dance in December at the Orrington Hotel.
At the time of the Song Contest the mighty group of H57 greenies' turned into
Four and Twenty Blackbirds and received honorable mention for their efforts.
As Sophomores we numbered fifty-four. We became acquainted with our
new ,members through a treasure hunt. Hallowe'en was celebrated by a hayloft
party. In order to give an impressive winter Formal, the Freshmen, Sophomores
and Junior classes together, gave a dance at the Evanston Country Club in
December. The class was well represented during the Christmas month, for it
also sponsored an animal booth, "Noah's Ark,', ar the annual Faculty Bazaar.
The profits were used to help finance the Daisy Chain.
Under the able direction of Mrs. Dorothy Whitcombe Clarke, class spon-
sor, Gretchen Collins, editor, and her cooperative staff upheld the pride of the
class through the publication of "ChaFf."
Our pride was not lessened as we gave our peppy contributions of skit and
songs at the Song Contest.
Commencement was a great thrill to the Sophomore Class as twenty-four
of their members carried the Daisy Chain for the graduating class.
Speaking of thrills! The Sophomores just lived on excitement for weeks
after the announcement of the marriage of their beloved sponsor, Dorothy
Whircombe, who is now Mrs. Clarke.
And now we are Juniors in a body of sixty-seven, still doing big things.
Our first activity was a class dinner at the college as a welcome party for our
twenty-Hve new members. We then began to work on our Junior pep assembly.
which was a huge success.
After much fretting and worrying, the junior Prom was given at the
Chicago Womanis Club, and will always be remembered as one of the most
enjoyable affairs of the year.
Since the Juniors have always been good sports, it was only fitting and
proper that they should take the honors in the May Day Fete.
Perhaps we don't appear very angelic, but we proved that angels can be
both good and bad in our Junior Song contest skit. The class has been taking
active part in the festivals and other school activities and are looking forward
to the same next year. We are also eagerly waiting for the assistant teaching
in the Demonstration School as a result of the presentation of the scholarships

Sophomore C ass Historq
GENERAL hubbub of voices: "How did you enjoy the vacation?" "Did you ever see-
chatter, chatter-chatter!" Then, a clear voice, "Will the meeting please come to or-
der?" September 19, 1934, was the date of the sophomores' first class meeting, in which a grand
picture for the coming year was presented. Would it be possible to complete? Well, the class,
now in the second semester, have just about completed it.
The first brilliant colors showing on the canvas were the result of the very effective work
done on "chaff" by the Sophs. They had a successful start with Mary Grace James, and Hnished
in the same sweeping strokes with Helen Regan,
With an excellent eye for balance, the Social Committee, headed by Charlotte Bassler,
added dashes of action beginning with the tea in October for the freshmen girls. It was a suc-
cess because of its charming informal atmosphere. Then followed, in November, a class dinner,
done along the lines of the spirit of Thanksgiving. This was indeed a merry evening. Another
dinner, held on January tenth, had the purpose of uniting the girls for a jolly time.
The second semester will long be remembered because of the first attempt to use to advan-
tage all of the many theories previously learned. These girls never before knew what real fun
it could be to have charge of a group of enthusiastic children. A bold, yet wavering line, con-
necting a multitude of ideas.
This semester found the sophomores low in funds. "Nothing attempted, nothing earned."
Thus, with vigorous energy, they tackled a Valentine sale of cake, tea, cookies, and National
College of Education made marmalade. The funds swelled, and on the canvas may be seen a
glimpse of valiant scarlet.
The song contest added a vivid color and memory of voices lifted in good humor. The dance
Cgiven in cooperation with the freshman classj added a pleasant tone, and the Daisy chain added
the border to our picture.
The mind, so to speak, behind the organization of the picture, was the President, Ellen
Bennett, the guiding hands, Mrs. Campbell, Miss MacI.ennan, Mrs. Geiger, and Miss Kearns.
The fact should not be overlooked that every girl in the sophomore class did her part to create
the picture of "Cooj1erafi0n, Ioy, and Success."

Freshman C ass Historia
ORTY enthusiastic freshman girls joined Miss Baker,s assembly of new
students at National on Friday, September 14. After our first week of
examinations and initiations we were entertained at tea by Miss Baker. y
The first meeting of the Class of '38 was held September 19. The first
social event of the class was to be a beach party held Wednesday, September 26.
The day brought rain, nevertheless thirty-three happy girls had a beach supper
in the College cafeteria.
A spirited election of oiiicers was held at the second meeting of the class
on Thursday, October 4. After several ballots, those selected to fill the posi-
tions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treisurer, and Social Chairman
were respectively, Elizabeth Hopkins, Marion Burkhardt, Laura Jane Marsh,
Frances Conde, and Peggy Bigler. Later in the week Mary Devereux, the
Athletic Chairman, was chosen.
Thursday, October 18, the sophomores served cider and doughnuts in the
Alumnae Room for the freshmen.
Our Athletic Chairman organized a badminton tournament which con-
tinued for several weeks. The victors in this contest were Eleanor Ricks and
The freshmen entertained the sophomores at a Hallowe,en party on
Wednesday, October 31, in the gym. Stems were pinned on the pumpkin and
other games were played. After the games the girls crunched popcorn balls.
A good old-fashioned taffy pull was held in the home economics room
on December 14.
The class was well represented at the Armour Glee Club concert dance on
January 18 with twenty-nine girls present.
With the beginning of the new semester eight names were added to the
roll. Mrs. Galvarro, our class sponsor,'entertained all of us at tea, Wednesday,
February 6, in honor of our new members. Our counselors are Miss Billings,
Miss Fruit, Miss DeBlois and Miss Weiler.
Songs were presented to the judges and assembly on March 12 in an
amateur radio program, with the quintuplets, the male octet, a sextette, and
a choir taking part.
Friday, March 15, shamrock-bedecked freshmen were seen in the corridors
vending delicacies from trays.
The pep assembly in charge of the freshman class on Tuesday, March 26,
was marked by keen interest and whole-hearted participation.
The biggest event of the year, the freshman-sophomore dance, took place
"Freshmen green but not forever,
Freshmen happy as the day,
We will learn and play together,
Cherish N. C. E. for aye."

OMMENCEMENT without the Daisy Chain just wouldnt seem like
graduation at National. It is an annual custom for the Sophomores to
carry the beautiful, large rope of field daisies into the aud1tor1um for the 1m
pressive graduation exercises. The Sophomores choose twenty four of their
most representative girls to carry this chain for the Seniors When the time
arrives, the girls wait breathlessly for the rhythm of the music, and then,
slowly they start the processional by forming a line along each side of the
main aisles. The rest of the procession passes between these attractive chains
of girls and daisies. Then the girls move slowly forward with their graceful
scallops of daisies and drape the chain on the stage and staircases The ceremony
is one which will be a lasting memory.

The A umm-lc Association
OW we are alumnae of the National College of Education. Our four
wonderful years of college days are over. But that does not mean weare
breaking ties-no, we are bound tighter than ever to our college.
There is a group of National girls many times larger than the student
body waiting to greet us, to make us one of them. We have a greater op-
portunity to show our love for and loyalty to our Alma Mater. More than
ever we realize that our education has not been just a pile of books leading
to a diploma but rather the attainment of true knowledge, the capacity to
enjoy the beauties of life, and that spiritual joy reaching out to all mankind.
We are to find the Alumnae Association teeming with fun and activity.
Many groups are organized all over the country, Ending a great sense of pleas-
ure and worthwhileness in doing for their college. The National organization
is ever active with its luncheon meetings, its musicale tea, and new this year,
a dinner dance in our own college. Then those two very important functions
at which we all love to meet one another again-the Holiday Tea at Christmas,
and the Home Coming in the spring.
By becoming a member of the National Alumnae Association through
paying our dues of one dollar, we will be helping toward the Elizabeth Har-
rison and the Mrs. John N. Crouse Scholarships, and contributing toward the
Guidon. These are the three major obligations we assume when becoming
If there is an Alumnae Chapter in our city, we shall want to become mem-
bers, or if not, perhaps we shall want to organize one with the assistance of
Miss Florence Linnell. Yes, it is a privilege to be a member of the National

Than sqivinq Festival
OW gaily the leaves danced here and there in the fields, but soon they
settled down quietly. The south wind and north wind vied with each
other in playing with these leaves. One could feel the effect of the warm,
gentle soft wind as she blew over the leaves, and the rustling coldness of the
north wind as she whirled from one to the other. It wasn't long before the
leaves were quickly stirred and blown from sight.
Following this colorful and spirited opening of the Thanksgiving Festival,
a picturesque frieze slowly took place on the stage. Peasants of the country,
bringing in their fruits of labor, came from all sides. Each had some symbol
which showed his thankfulness-such as fruits and grains or the implements
with which he was able to produce these necessities. One felt the strength
of character and personality in these persons. As these sturdy figures posed,
small groups of contrasting shades of purple and lavender appeared. Graceful,
light, and cheery clusters of grapes were being swayed in rhythmic movement
by animated grapevines. The circling, turning, and interchanging of the
vines, as they danced round and round, added another touch of spirited feeling
for life. The whole festival encouraged a much more thoughtful but joyful
attitude toward future living.
The world, in general, is inclined to have but one thought at Thanks-
giving time-that a self-centered one. But with the coming of each yearly
celebration at this time, Mary Crane Nursery School has been most generously
thought of by the college students. Attractively decorated boxes received the
multitude of foodstuffs that were sent down to this center for the purpose
of making their Thanksgiving as cheerful and pleasant as that of the donors.
The C tistm.-1s Festival
HE Christmas Festival this year was of a traditional nature. The girls
brought gifts for the children of Marcy Center and Mary Crane. We
marched in according to classes--in dignihed rhythm to Miss Rissleris accom-
paniment on the piano. After several songs were sung by the choir and assem-
bly, we all sat-in thrilling expectation-waiting for the curtains to roll back
and share a lovely spectacle with us.
The story, which the girls so well portrayed for us, was There Was Om'
Who Gam' 61 Lamb. In the background were twelve choir girls dressed to repre-
sent angels. They were placed against a background of pine trees which gave
the scene an etheral quality.
One angel was leading the other angels in a search for a person who held
true charity in his heart. We saw peasants who brought grain over their
shoulders, a couple of children bringing flowers, the miser, even, bringing a
bag of gold, and still again, a king who offered his crown. But when the
angel searched their hearts deeply, she found not one of them had real charity
behind their offerings. After searching almost in vain, a little boy crept near
the heavenly sight with an awesome fear expressed in his entire being. In the
boy's arms was a lamb which he loved very dearly. He willingly gave his
lamb to comfort the Christ Child as his offering. Whereupon, the angels burst
into radiant song which expressed the end of a long successful search.
This whole scene produced a spirit which must have prevailed at the very
first Christmas, that of Peace on Eurfb Good Will fo Men.
C ildren's P au
O0Pla-Hoopla-if it isn't my dear Granddaddy and Grandmamma!
They've come to help their grandbaby put on the show!" Poor little
Peter and Lotta didn't know just what to do, because here was a big, big
clown, whose hat almost reached the sky, pulling them right towards a big
bear, and shouting to the children that they had come to join the show. How-
ever, it was only another of "The Adventures of Peter and Lotta". The fair
really proved to be the most fun of all. It was a jolly play that the college
girls gave on Saturday, February 16, and everybody who came to see it,
both big and little folks, agreed that they had never laughed so hard before.
Miss Clara Belle Baker adapted the charming story of Peter and Lotta,
written by Elsa Beskow and we found enough clever people to make up a cast
of most amusing characters. The story was about two children who lived with
their three fussy aunts and their sedate, stern uncle. Aunt Brown made them
good ginger cookies, Aunt Green fed them pears from her garden, and Aunt
Lavendar treated them to her lovely purple grape juice when they were good
children. One day the three aunts and Uncle Blue left for the Fair. Peter and
Lotta decided that this would be a good time to take one of their new, little
kittens to cross Christine, the washwoman. She appreciated it very much, and
they were made happy. The children took the wrong road, though, and the
jolly chimney sweep that they met, only teased them and confused them more
with new directions. Soon they were lost in the woods, and because they were
so hot and tired, they threw off their clothes and waded in the cool spring.
Along came an old rag picker and gathered up the little boy's suit and the
girl's pretty dress, and put them away in her bag. Lotta was very frightened
when she found they were gone, but soon a kindly woodchopper came along
to save them. It was getting quite cold. His good wife gave the children
some funny clothes that were much too big, and the children set off for the
Fair with the woodcutter and his wheelbarrow of vegetables. That,s when
they met the clown and danced with the bear. It was such fun! Soon the
three Aunts and Uncle Blue came in. Right away Aunt Lavender fainted
because she was so shocked to see the children at the Fair. However, they
soon felt very sorry for the poor dears, and brought popcorn balls and balloons
and horns for them. Pet, the real live dog, came to the Fair, too. Uncle Blue
bought them good strong canes. With these canes they set out for home with
the promise that they would come again the next day and all ride on the

Mot er's Dag
E ALL greeted April fourth with much enthusiasm because it was the
date of the traditional Mother's Day at National. And what a full and
charming day it was! The Committee, consisting of Miss Kearns, chairman,
Miss Staley, Miss Agnes Adams, Esther Stoddard, Ellen Bennett, Elizabeth
Hopkins and Gretchen Collins, planned a fascinating program, it began with
the mother's visiting student teaching or college classes in the morning, and
ending with the grand Hnale of a tea in the Alumnae Room, to which the
mothers, the teachers, and the girls were all invited for a jolly round of intro-
ductions, conversations and refreshments. Following the morning sessions, .1
luncheon was served for the mothers at twelve-thirty in the dormitory, pre--
ceded by half an hour of orchestra music, and eaten to the tune of our grand
college songs. The program concluded with a talk by Miss Edna Dean Baker.
The mothers came over to school to visit the two o'clock classes, and then
remained to be entertained by the Glee Club, and with a play, which was pre-
sented in the auditorium at three o'clock by the Dramatic Club. "Travelers,"
by Booth Tarkington, was selected for presentation on this occasion, and with
its well chosen cast, and elaborate preparations, the play was a great success.
The cast of the principal characters was: '

Miss Robertstttr tttt ttt,,.. J ane Thrall Mrs. Slidell. ........t... .Carolyn Shepherd

It proved to be an interesting and delightful day for everyone, and all
the mothers who joined us enjoyed all the activities immensely. It was a grand
opportunity for the mothers, the faculty, and the girls to become better
acquainted, and the mothers to learn about life at National.
Dancesl an Aqain? Danccsl
LL National looked forward to the Town Girls' Christmas Dance which
was held at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in the Michigan Room on Satur-
day, December eighth. Eddie Simonds and his orchestra played the latest song
hits for our special enjoyment.
Under a ceiling of multicolored balloons there danced the happy couples
attending the Junior Prom of February sixteenth. The intoxicating music of
Bob Orton's Orchestra set many pairs of peppy feet into rhythmic movement
at the Chicago Woman's Club.
The Freshmen and Sophomores had their annual dance at the Orrington
Hotel Roof Garden on May eleventh. Bob Orton's Orchestra again furnished
more of his very excellent music.
And last, but hardly least, the Seniors had their gala dance-the most out-
standing dance of National's social season. Why? Everyone turned out! The
dance was held at Skokie Country Club with syncopation supplied by Jimmy
Catlin's Orchestra. The dinners were served with the most graceful ease, and
they were delicious.
T c Hoiidaq Bazaar
HREE days of entertainment and Christmas shopping-the Bazaar. This
project which was inaugurated several years ago by the faculty, has,
through the years, developed into a real community event with not only
faculty but also students, parents and alumnae participating. Never was the
Bazaar so gala as this year. A group of real American Indians-young and old-
displayed their crafts and entertained us with their dancing and folklore. The
Negro Little Theatre of Evanston presented very delightfully a play called
"Numbers" There was special interest in this play due to the fact that the
leading character is in our own employ. And surely there was never a lovelier
program for children-and grownups-than that given by Pamahasika's pets,
the trained birds, dogs and monkeys who had attracted audiences on the En-
chanted Island for two years. It was such-a thrill to have them right here on
our own stage. There were toys, books, Japanese Woodblock prints, Hull House
pottery, Florentine leather, dresses, jewelry, men's neckties and mufflers, white
elephants, and what not. The alumni booth contained many varieties of hand
work of their own making, and these articles, which were all contributed, were
among the "best sellers." And the food-such delicious cake and candy-was
contributed and sold by the Parents' Council of the Children's School. The
sophomore class sold soft drinks under a lovely arbor. Dinners were served in
our typical home-like way in the college cafeteria. The Bazaar was both work
and fun and also remunerative.
HE freshmen presented an amateur radio broadcast. The male octet from
National opened the program, followed by the Dionne quintuplets, who
rendered their own unique version of a peppy song. A famous sextet contrib-
uted, also. The entire class participated nobly despite the lack of previous
The sophomores thought the Song Contest of 1935 was dynamic, stupend-
ous, and colossal! Three of the class asked advice from a crystal gazer. The
other members of the class gave their mystic answers in peppy songs. The
unanimous decision was that fortunate girls always go to National because of
its numerous attractions.
"Are the Juniors ready?" "Yes!" responded a lively choir of white-clad
angels, indiscriminately bad and good.
Mere blackbirds as freshmen, they proceeded up the ladder until they
became sophomore football fans. So rapid was their reformation from this state
that the present year found them invading the realms of heaven. However,
even Junior angels were not proof against the wiles of Satan, who found his
way past the vigilant St. Peter, for he soon had them tapping and singing his
peppy National songs. St. Peter,s arrival with a host of good angels routed
Satan and converted the bad angels to real junior behavior.
The senior class pulled up anchor and set sail for their final victory of
this-their last voyage. Crowds lined the rails of the S. S. '35 as that gallant
ship started off. The strains of We'Ve on the Senior Ship provided a little local
color. Several times their voices rose in songs of their college days. As the
ship sank slowly out of sight beyond the horizon, a farewell melody floated
back to those under-classmen who were left behind.

XCITED freshmen and sophomores, parents and friends packing the
auditorium. On the stage and behind the scenes agitated seniors and
juniors all ready for the annual Spring Festival.
First a formation of girls bearing lanterns. In this scene a dance executed
by five girls with chromium hoops contributes an added bit of loveliness. Then
fantastic shadows appear on a darkened stage.
In the following scene, the audience is transported to Spain. In a colorful
Spanish setting, the choir appear as a vivid group of senoritas who delight
with their song and dances.
A humorous number fwritten by Miss Clara Belle Baker in her charming,
inimitable wayj then takes the limelight. All types of gossips are depicted:
children, wisely and felinely discussing their elders, society women who really
interrupt their chatter to play bridge, men in a country village settling national
affairs as they sit around on the village store packing boxes, shanty Irish women
talking funerals over the back fence, and to complete the picture, a group of
virtuous women who disapprove of everything including life and death.
The 1935 Spring Festival comes to a thrilling climax in a romantic French
garden. Groups of dancers in attractive period costumes are followed by the
May Queen's attendants, then in pink comes the Maid of I-Ionor, Jet Black,
and in an exquisite yellow and silver gown the May Queen herself, Betty
Pageantry under the direction of Miss Mount grows lovelier each year.
She was assisted by Miss MacLennan, Miss Billings, Miss Fruit, costumes, Miss
Middleton, make-up, Mrs. Taylor, stage-scenery, and Miss Kearns, lighting.

were made for the immediate election of officers.
Formal installation of the newly elected officers took place in assembly,
October 23, when the crimson robe of president came to rest on the capable
shoulders of Betty Lawrence, and the record books of Vice-President, Secre-
tary and Treasurer were presented to Winifred Jackson, Margaret Clymer, and
Gertrude Perry, respectively.
The most important point for discussion in Council throughout the year
has been the adoption of a temporary system for the election of all ofhcers,
which will be tried out this year. Elections will be held in the spring and
officers will be elected in the order of their importance, that is, the College
Council officers Hrst, then Town and Dormitory Boards, Editors of Thr'
National and Cbajyr, class officers, and club officers. The purpose of this is to
avoid conflicts with the point system, and to eliminate the need for a girl
giving up one office to accept another.
A second temporary amendment to the constitution of College Council
was that the President and Vice-President of College Council shall be nomin-
ated and elected by the entire student body in order to form a closer relation-
ship between the Council and the students.
It is the custom for College Council to sponsor certain social events
throughout the year for everyone,s enjoyment. The lovely traditional festivals
have been inspiring and beautiful under the able leadership of the Activities
Chairman, Winifred Jackson. On January 18th, the college was the scene
of a concert-dance with Armour institute, planned to renew an old friendship
started with Armour when National was on the South side of Chicago.
The mid-year graduates were honored in a February Assembly and at a
lovely tea following. For May lst the Council planned an all-school May Day
as a means of bringing all the students together and of stimulating interest
in many kinds of out-door sports.
As Commencement came in sight, the members of College Council looked
back on a year of successful administration interspersed with many happy
occasions for the whole school.

another eventful year has been completed.
The Town Girls' Association was organized to promote friendship and
cooperation between the students of the college. This year we have carried out
this aim of the Association through our social activities and our representatives
Q of College Council.
I The first social affair of the year was the lI'11lI18.f1OI'1 dinner. This came as
l a climax to two days of initiation stunts. Everyone met in the gymnasium,

A teria for dinner.
l The next social success of the year was the Town Girls' informal dance.
This was held at the Edgewater Beach Hotel, considered a favorite place by
Town Qir s
many, and where a most enjoyable evening was spent dancing to tantalizing
The Christmas dinner was a very much looked forward to and enjoyed
occasion. Before dinner, songs were sung and pieces spoken in front of a
roaring fire in the Alumnae Room's spacious fireplace. Miss Baker, in her big
chair by the firelight, told Christmas stories to the girls who were seated at her
feet. Everyone felt the spirit of Christmas-especially since there was a large
tree in the corner of the room which aided greatly to the air of gay festivity.
The cafeteria, where dinner was served, was decorated with Santa Clauses and
Christmas trees in regular traditional style. After dinner we went back to the
Alumnae Room where Santa Claus distributed candy canes, verses, and plenty
of free advice. The annual gift of fifty dollars was presented to Miss Baker
at this time. The evening, which finally had to come to a close, was pro-
nounced one of the outstanding successes of the year.
The concluding social affair, however, was perhaps the most outstanding
in many ways. For one, it brought to close a very happy year with the promise
of more next fall to those who are returning, but to those who were fortunate
to be graduating, it meant a goodbye dinner-sort of a bon voyage greeting.
Naturally, this was a little saddening to many of us who will miss our friends
of long standing and trust they will miss us, too, still, we did congratulate their
perseverance and wished them the best of sailing in the years to come. We
exacted, too their promise to return to us to visit and we are already looking
ahead to the tales of experience they will bring back to us.

ORMERLY the student body in the dormitory was governed by a formal
board of oiiicers. In 1934, the Student Government Association was re-
organized. There is now an informal government, in which the dormitory
students are represented by a committee of three girls. The students have
been able, in most instances, to work out in a very satisfactory manner, their
own solution to their own problems. With the aid of the Social Chairman,
the committee forms a welcoming group, and sponsors the activities of the

hundred dollars now!" pleads Betty Torrison.

Betty Reeves and Virginia Bennett, weakening. "Why don't those modest
Nationalites sign up on the charts?', Marion and Gretchen wail. "The Annual
must be out on time and be the best book everlv shout the staff in unison.
The Annual staff chose as the theme of this ye-ar,s book "school activities."
The National incorporates all the activities of classes, clubs, and other organiza-
tions into one record which you will cherish in years to come. The Annual
Staff was guided, encouraged, and inspired by Miss Kearns and Mrs. Taylor.
The Staff appreciate their invaluable assistance.
We believe that the success of our Annual depends, to a great extent,
on the selection, organization, and number of snapshots. Our motto, "Snap
Into It,', was very effective, and with your cooperation, we have been able to
make this edition an artistic one.
At the beginning of the year the Staff was forced to decide whether they
should give the student body an average Annual within the limits of the
budget, or whether they should put forth a great effort to raise several hundred
dollars in advertising, subscriptions, and gifts, in order to give the College an
outstanding and unusually splendid year-book. We have endeavored to achieve
the latter. We have tried to give you a book you will always keep among
your "National,' souvenirs.

HAFF has had a successful season in spite of the handicaps that have been
difficult to overcome. Mary Graces James, who was the editor until
February, withdrew from the college at that time because of ill health. Helen
Regan continued as editor until the end of the year. This change was made
without any break in the smoothness of the functioning of the organization
vouching for the good work of both girls. The financial condition has been a
handicap. In spite of the reduced exchequer, Chaff has published thirteen
Chaff is composed of articles on major school events, a column of personal
news, club news, jokes, class articles, essays, poems, and short original articles.
Poetry and articles are contributed by all four classes, and questionnaires on
topics of school interest are answered by many of the student body.
It is one of the greatest privileges of the Sophomore Class to be responsible
for its publication, and it is with a feeling of reluctancy that this staff hands
Chaff on to the class of 1938 in spite of the promise they already exhibit.

HE Y Club experienced one of its rushing moments this fall, only the
moments lengthened into a full year. At the first of the year, several of
us visited the ChiIdren's Memorial Hospital, Illinois ChiIdren's Home, and
Chase House on Saturday mornings. In the evenings, or any time during the
day, one could see "YH club girls sewing, knitting, or making scrap books.
The dish towels, chiIdren's clothes, and picture books we turned out from this
"busy been went to the four corners of the world. In between times we gave
teas and went to teas given by the other branches of the "YH clubs in the
Chicago district. At Christmas times we gave a party for some of the poor
children in Evanston. At Easter time we presented an Easter pageant in
assembly which expressed the idea of new birth and new life. Throughout the
year Miss Weiler backed us with her enthusiasm, spurring us on in our activities.
The members of the "Y" club come and go, each carrying the "Y" club
spirit just a little further.

HERE East joins West and North meets South, there National becomes
international. Our club this year consists of twenty-five members, with
Estonia, Mexico, Siam, India, China, Korea, Japan, England and Canada, all
represented, and for each Uforeignn member, we had an American sister.
Nor can we forget Miss Williams, our ever faithful sponsor and friend.
Our club by no means confined itself to the regular monthly meetings.
We had supper at Chinatown, and attended the Community Negro Church,
Harvest Festival. Several teas and receptions were given, and there were
a number of parties in conjunction with Northwestern International Club, as
well as several parties at the homes of various club friends. But most out-
standing of all in our memories, are International House supper, the Indian
Supper, and the Danish dinner.
And We are not yet finished, for We are anticipating many more good
times. Meanwhile, the weekly lunch hour has developed, or degenerated, into
a smaller daily gathering, where various and unique forms of intelligence
tests have become the order, or disorder, of the day. And as they partake of
physical and mental nourishment, these eager students may be seen-

HERE were long faces in the choir last September when it was learned
that only eight of the old members were back, but with the addition of
the excellent voice of the new girls, the choir rapidly regained its former
strength. It performed most creditably at the Thanksgiving and Christmas
Festivals-adding a spiritual quality that matched the solemn and beautiful
pageantry to perfection. Miss Louise St. John Westervelt was the inspiring
leader, with Miss Jeanette Rissler as the accompanist. At the Spring Festival
the choir gave a very beautiful interpretation of a Spanish scene-costumes,
scenery, and songs being most spirited and suggestive of colorful Spanish life.
A small group of ten selected girls had the honor of singing for the Governing
Board Dinner and on other occasions, too. But the most eagerly looked for
roles are the important ones which the choir is to play in both Baccalaureate
and Commencement, when it will cooperate with the entire school chorus to
present the most effective program of the year. This will conclude a happy and

AM running down the necks of unfortunate victimsg laughter from the old
girls as those on the "death walku step on an egg, plebes struggling to
eat their dessert with a knifeg these are some of the signs that the Glee Club
is holding its annual initiation party.
Winter programs, in which the club makes personal appearances, are
l the annual Christmas carol concerts for the League of Hard of Hearing and
the Faculty Bazaar at the College. Both of these are very peppy, colorful
affairs, and a source of enjoyment to all the club members.
Games, a good dinner, a Christmas tree in the Alumni room, carols, the
jingle of bells, and Santa Claus appears bringing gifts to all good Glee Club
members who have stayed on pitch during the past year. How Santa
' chuckles as he gives out his packages of every size and shape! He is es-
j pecially enjoying himself, because he knows that all of the gifts come from
With the spring comes Mother's Day on which the club sings every year.
There is much excitement, and all of the members tremble a little, fearing
that they might hit a "sour" note on this day of days, when they want to
show off before their mothers.
Summer comes again and brings to us beach parties and picnics. We
toast wienies over the fire, swap stories, and sing. Some of us go for a swim.
Then we pile in cars and another adventure is over.
With the culmination of 1934-1935 activities, we will never forget the
good times we have had in Glee Club.

HE Book Club of 1934-1935 was characterized by a marked increase
in membership. The club met each fortnight for a period of stimulating
change from the regular routine of the school curriculum.
The social activities ran the gamut from the partaking of juicy picnic
steaks of Evanston bovines, and the mad quest of long hairs from tails of
Evanstonian equinines, to delightful dinners.
Other meetings were spent in reading bits from new books purchased
by the club. Ranked the most popular books Were: witty Alexander Wool-
cott's "While Rome Burnsf' Booth Tarkington's entertaining "Little Orvief'
Romola Nijinsky's fascinating narrative of the Russian Ballet, and James
I-Iilton's amusing "Goodbye Mr Chips."

membership over last year. The club is made up of girls who are interested
in make-up work as Well as acting and the study of play production.
At each meeting something special was presented to the club, such as re-
views of plays and short skits. At several meetings refreshments were served
and a social time was enjoyed.
In November, a group of the members attended Max Reinhardt,s pro-
duction of "Midsummer Night's Dream." This was a very enjoyable and
According to the annual custom, the club presented a play for the

"All aboard! We are all ready to start our yearls trip to Gaspe Peninsula,

This is the call which comes from the heart of the Travel Club. This
club is made up of those girls who are interested in travel and in studying
different countries of the world.
The year of 1934-1935 was started off by a trip around Gaspe Peninsula
with Miss Billings as the captain. Following that, the club took many inter-
esting trips to the above-mentioned places.
Around Christmas time a very delicious dinner was prepared by the
members of the club, served in the Home Economics Room, and enjoyed by all.
Real New England style "baked beans and brown bread" were served to the
hungry travelers one evening at the home of Evelyn Thompson. Yes-
scrumptious! March 16 is also important as the members recall themselves
seated around a large table in the Rocco Club eating Swedish food. Yes-

RE you a graduate?" was the first call from the Graduate Club in
The Graduate Club is an organization at National, in which the members
should have one prerequisite, supposedly, they should be graduates of a four-
year college. Due to the small number of graduates this year, the club added
many new members by inviting new girls at National, who had previously
attended a junior college or another college for three years, to become members.
The meetings are monthly and hold the interest of all the girls. Since we are
graduates we are allowed to meet in the Alumnae Room where delicious food
is served. Could this be a reason for the large attendance?
The first Saturday in March we met with our faculty advisor, Miss Kern,
at the Cordon Club, in the Fine Arts Building, for luncheon, which was
enjoyed by all.
Among the colleges represented are some of the state universities: Uni-
versity of Toronto, Smith, Wellesley, Mount Holyoke, Oberlin, Washington
University, Chicago Teachers College, Reed, and Boston University.
Our guide and staunch advisor, Miss Frances Kern, throughout the year,
has been an inspiration not only to those in the Graduate Club, but also to
those who have been fortunate in having her as a teacher,iEn-othereclasses.

HE faculty have shown more interest in athletics this year than ever before
in the history of National. Many of the faculty have become experts
before in the history of National. Many of the faculty have become experts
in playing badminton. They were challenged to a badminton tournament by
the students on a certain Thursday at the four o'clock game hour, Mrs.
Galvarro, Mr. Bo, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Russell as the faculty representatives,
and Ruth Long, Rosie Russo, Evelyn Thompson, and Dorothy Wegg as the
student representatives played some very exciting games which ended in a tie.
Two tournaments, with the Winnetka Community House players, were
held at National. The first tournament was held at the beginning of the
semester with Eva Chaiser, Ruth Long, Muriel Meyers, Rosie Russo, Evelyn
Thompson, and Dorothy Wegg as the players who won the tournament for
National. The second tournament was held on Thursday, March 28, with the
same girls playing and winning for National.
The committee in charge of Athletics has tried to make the Thursday
game hour of four o'clock a successful one. It can be done if the students
cooperate in making it so. Such sports as badminton, ping pong, tennis,
archery, baseball, basketball and volley ball were enjoyed.
Many outside sport activities such as horse-back riding, and tennis at the
Northwestern courts, golf at the Evanston Golf course, and swimming at the
School of Physical Education on Central Street, have been offered this year.
Does it not pay to take advantage of these opportunities which help make
a well-rounded woman and teacher?
The Athletic Committee for this year, under the guidance of Miss
Weiler and Mr. Bo, was composed of the following girls: Octavia Hurd,
Treasurer, Senior representativeg Eva Chaiser, Chairman, Junior representa-
tive, Mary Gardner, Sophomore representative, Mary Deveraux, Freshman
representative, and Rosie Russo, "Y" Club representative.
