Inseparable from the things We do, the people We see,
are the places We know. In after years our favorite haunts
will mean as much to us, will give us the same excited
twinge at recollection as will the outdated candid camera
shots of college friends. In representing the year in all its
phases We cannot ignore the landmarks. Every stage has
its settings as Well as its characters. Landmarks are some-
times big things, sometimes little things, but always they're
things you will remember.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING
The Sophomore Class, just a group of potential sand-eaters at heart,
started the year with a bang-up beach party Qrainy day of indoor varietyj
which proved such a success that it was repeated in May. One can't
judge the good times and success of the Sophomore Class by these two
beach parties alone, however.
The executive committee: June Zettergren, Vice-president, Roberta
Beaty, Secretaryg Lucille Dodd, Treasurer, and Phyllis Clemenson,
Athletic Chairman was ably headed by Harriet Beyer, President, and
Miss Elizabeth Springston, Class Sponsor. The entire class as listed in
preceding pages for opposite pagej showed through their cooperation
and class spirit that the Sophomore Class is still in the running. Some
of the outstanding activities held by Class members were: Secretary of
College Council, an office faithfully executed by June Zettergreng Town
Girls' Association's Treasurer, another Sophomore, Jeanne Hegbergg
Social Chairman, Mary Lou Hastings, past class president, Assistant
Editor of Chaff, Sylvia Pollock, who was instrumental in the new
policies of the paper, members of the Annual Staff, Kay Hedman and
Marie Arnold, President of the Dramatic Club, Phyllis Clemenson, Presi-
dent of the Qrchestra organization, Phyllis Parks, and the Glee Club
heroically organized by a group of Sophomores under the leadership of
The Sophomore Assembly, culminating with a Daisy Tag day, was
a huge success. Twenty-five dollars was taken in toward the Daisy Chain
fund. Such was the significance of this day that the idea was considered
worthy of being a Sophomore Class tradition. The Thursday food sales
under the supervision of Jean Rickel also helped swell the funds.
Proudly the Sophomores viewed the social and financial success of
the Freshmen-Sophomore formal of April 17 with due regard to the
The Sophomores entered into the spirit of the Song Fest and inter-
preted "The Alarm Begins to Ring" in a manner which signified the
student teaching side of the Sophomore program.
May Day, May 7, claimed many of the sport fans of the Class and
a good showing was made.
On June the ninth, a group of twenty Sophomore girls proudly
carried the Daisy Chain to honor the graduates-a symbol of respect and
good wishes to the Seniors and a symbol of the cooperation and sincerity
of the Sophomore Class of '36-'37. May the Sophomore Class of '37-'38
profit by their success and enjoy a full year of happiness and success in
Sophomores show little of the dignity and wisdom
that is rightly theirs. They, too, prefer frivolity.

Wholehearted and staunch in all they attempt, the
Juniors may expect a truly successful last year.
A GLIMPSE AT THE RECORD
It was late afternoon. The library was almost empty, and so quiet that even the
faint hum of the air conditioner could be heard. An old, old man, evidently the
librarian, was dusting off some books, and placing them on the glass shelves. Suddenly
there was a crash, a bang, a clatter. The door burst open and in staggered Mr. Graham.
"Well!" he ejaculated. The old man tottered over to him. "Tripped again did you
Son?" he murmered sympathetically. "Where's the book I sent you for?" Mr. Graham
brightened considerably. "Here it is, Pop," he beamed. The old man shook his head.
I-Iis assistant was a good worker, but a trifle disrespectful. Why didn't this young man
call him Father Time as the rest of the world did? The old man sighed, and then took
the volume from his assistant.
"I forgot this book when we moved into our new sound-proof, dust-proof, moth-
proof library,', he explained. "And it,s a good book too. All about what those kinder-
garten girls are doing. The ones at National. Now look at this page for example.
Chuck full of interesting doings. This is the page for the Junior Class, the class of '38
that is. They started with a beach party in September, and then here in October I see
they had a dinner with Arline Dreebin as chairman. It's here in the book that they
spent most of November preparing for their prom. And let me see, what's the name of
that little girl who was Social Committee Chairman? Oh yes, here it is, Jane Dodd.
She and Jane Rogers certainly helped to make that dance a success. I guess that every-
one knows that Char Brown and Mrs. Galvarro were behind every committee.
In February Mrs. Galvarro had a tea for the Juniors, besides all the other nice
things she'd done for them all year long. Say, son, there were some mighty fine girls
in that Junior class! Jerry Johnson, Marian Check, Frannie Deal and Laura Marsh were
Junior Editors for The Annual. And did I mention that the notes for entries in this
book came from Kay Wilder, class secretary? Marion Burkhardt was Vice President,
and Persida Deegan was Athletic Representative, and Eleanor Ricks was the Treasurer.
All of them will be leaders in their Senior year. And a lot more girls will be coming to
the top as club presidents and committee workers too. Hand me that pen on the top
of the desk, will you son? I want to start their new page. There, Senior Class of '38.
I'll be anxious to see what I'll have to write on this page next year."

Lacking the spontaneity of High School,
college activities entail a thoroughness of ac-
complishment and a spirit of service that
for Weeks supplements all our free hours,
dominates all our conversation. College be-
comes, at these times, a mad compromise
between study as We would not have it at
home, and social life as We Would.
Can you remember the day you entered College? Strange faces greeted you on
every side. Graduation seemed so far away that it was scarcely thought of. Now that
you thave reached this goal, you will automatically become an alumna of National.
just what that means to you will be revealed as the years go by.
What the College would do without the loyal support and interest of its alumnae,
it is diflicult to say. That support may be manifested in many different ways, the chief
of which is holding the standards of National high both personally and professionally.
This may be done wholly by your success as a teacher, or by professional interest if you
are not teaching. Also, it may be accomplished by allying yourself with other alumnae
in one of the chapter organizations scattered from coast to coast and in Honolulu, it
may be by forming a chapter if there is none in your vicinity. The National oflicers
will be glad to assist you.
The Elizabeth Harrison and Mrs. John N. Crouse Scholarships are supported by the
Association, and a goodly contribution is made toward the publication of the Guidon.
This paper will mean much to you when you are no longer in College. The success of
the Christmas Bazaar is also made possible by the alumnae, the proceeds applying on the
scholarships, as do your annual dues.
The annual events for all alumnae are as follows: the Card Party each autumn in
the loop of Chicago, the Bazaar and Christmas Tea during the holidays at the College,
the Spring Luncheon, and last, but not least, the Spring Festival and Home-coming in
Our alumnae president, Mrs. Betty G. Melichar, with the members of the National
Alumnae Board and other alumnae heartily welcome the 1937 graduates to their number.

Democratic in spirit, yet unable to deny the fact that there are always a few who
do deserve special recognition for their splendid service, National gives many Honorary
Scholarships each year. During this past year these girls have so endeared themselves to
us, have served their jobs so well, that we can never forget them. Nor can we ever
forget how quickly they ran down the long staircase last year to receive their prize On
graduation day. More to refresh your memory as to the details of the honor than to
infer that you may have forgotten any one of these girls, we print, below, the import
of the Scholarships as given annually.

DAISY CHAIN OF 1936
Each year the Sophomores bring to a close their second year at
National by contributing the most colorful part of the commencement
. . . . H ld d . . t
exercises. It IS a tradition for them to present a chain of e aisies o
the graduating Seniors.
Twenty Sophomores are chosen, by the class itself, to participate in
the processional. They are selected on the basis of scholarship and serv-
. . . f h
' Gowned in long white dresses, the girls proceed up both sides o t e
two main aisles. The Faculty and Seniors pass between these lines on the
way to their places. The Sophomores turn and, to the strains of some
ma'estic march, they carry the chain down the aisles to drape it across
the platform and up the stairways leading to the balcony.

Equally as lovely as these pictures will be
the 1937 Daisy Chain. Led by Hattie Beyer
the group will bid a beautiful farewell to
The Settlers no longer feared the Indians. Red men they were, yes, but not enemies.
Against a tawny background painted by November, the Pilgrims had gathered to cele-
brate a harvest rich in the gold of corn and the copper of wheat, in the brittle red of
late apples, and the deep wine of grapes. With them, as participants and guests, the
Indians knelt to worship. They had come to praise the White Man's God, the giver of
all good things.
So, in solemnity, the Settlers planned this first Thanksgiving. They saw in it a
festival of joy, of praise, of brotherhood. And they found in it a reverence worthy of
the God whose praises they sang. Upon a table groaning with food the Pilgrim Fathers
placed bowls brimming with tawny fruits. One brought in a fowl, brilliantly feathered.
The maids, too, with a grace born of simplicity, brought in steaming, sweet smelling
dishes. Children carried golden pumpkins and royal purple gourds. Indians, quiet as
bronze, belied their dignity with blankets, gay as the autumn leaves.
And against the riot of warm, gay color, the Puritan Father entered, hand out-
stretched, severe and simple in his bearing. His unspoken benediction spread like a quiet
wind across the gathering, touching all hope, all courage, all praise. Even the Indians,
savage and bewildered, bowed their heads before the strength of the Father's praise.

Christmas activities reached a climax on the Thursday afternoon preceeding vaca-
tion. All of the reverence, respect, solemnity, and joy which accompanies the true
signihcance of Christmas became a part of the audience as well as the participants in
the season,s festival.
The assembly and choir sang several selections before the curtains parted for the
inspirational pageant which is given each year at this time. The choir and a selected
group of girls portrayed 'tThere Was One Who Gave a Lambn. A setting of pine trees
was lovely for the story. The theme of the pageant was the true spirit of Christmas,
sincere giving. The giving which means most to the giver.
As the curtains swung together and the students, faculty and guests turned their
thoughts toward home, and the strains of Christmas Carols were heard through the
halls. All were deeply moved by the occasion which was so truly lovely.

In strong contrast to last year's historical pageant was this year's festival, con-
sisting of five individual acts, each with its own motif. The opening number was a
group of eight girls taking the steps of the minuet as a pattern and expressing the
pattern in many different rhythms. The second act treated with the favorite subject of
psychology, dreams. The dreamy, elusive quality of dreams was broken only by the short
appearance of some fantastic, unreal figure, who moved through the dream not dis-
turbing its elusive quality. The second part of this act dealt with the dreams of fear
and horror, even to despair. As light and humorous as the dreams were dark and
tragic, the third act presented an attic come to life. All the relics and knick-knacks
that find refuge in an attic became animated and lively to notes of syncopated music.
Miss Westervelt added a great deal to the festival with her choir number. Against a
vivid background the choir members sang parts from Prince Igor and the Nutcracker
Suite. As always, the last act opened with the audience tense with the wonder of the
unknown May Queen. Her setting was a toy shop filled with the newest, most novel
toys imaginable. They prolonged the suspense with their antics until the moment
when a doll wrapped in cellophane and tied round with many concealing ribbons, was
unwrapped and revealed as the May Queen.

There's never a dull moment at National! One of the
proofs of this statement is the yearly May Day and its excit-
ing events. This year, as always, it was a noisy and welcome
break, during which time inhibitions were thrown to the
winds and everyone, yes faculty too, played together just for
the fun of it. Play Day planned a strict boycott on classes
from one-thirty on through the afternoon. We were led from
class or the library by a jubilant group of "snake-dance en-
thusiasts" out to che field to meet in class groups under class
The day's events included dodge-ball, re-
lays of the most amusing varieties, individual
arm bands as telltale brand of the class to
which we belonged, and the usual soda-pop
and candy. The party grew just a bit rough
during the dressing and undressing relays,
but recovered sufficiently to put on a rous-
ing fine baseball game under the expert um-
pire-ship of Mr. Davis. The scavenger hunt
was a new note and proved a lot of fun and
more than enough exercise. Faculty mem-
bers took quite a beating between signing
tin cans and submitting to hair ribbons,
but they were grand sports and we have a
great many faculty members and students
to thank for one glorious afternoon.

It's news that makes the world go round, and that's what Chaff does for National.
News of social events, sports events, school chatter, faculty affairs, and news around
our school and about many other schools as well. Not to mention ripe and rib-tickling
jokes. Peggy Cosner led the Chaff Staff in ,36 and '37 and she deserves a big hand for
the grand job she has done.

Each year is verbally and pictorially summed up, printed and bound between the
Covers of The National. Each Staff strives hard to be very different, very much better.
Yet school is necessarily bound by many traditions and the year's events seem always
to boil down to the same old story handled just a bit differently. For all of this, what
would We do in years to come Without The National?
TOWN GIRLS BOARD
Marienthal Hall is justly proud of the privilege
of student government. Congeniality and free-
dom, with only necessary rules, prevail among the
board members, who govern the girls. The board,
a chairman, secretary, treasurer, and two social
chairmen, is elected by popular ballot. The board
officiates in the making and breaking of regula-
tions, and in planning the year's social events. All
action is supervised by the Dormitory Hostess.
The girls agree that this way of living is a happy
and successful one.
Beginning with an initiation dinner in October
for the little sisters who joined our ranks, T. G. A.
has had a pleasant and profitable year. November
saw us in calico and overalls dancing amid the
hay and saddles at the stable stomp. The Christ-
mas party was complete from Santa Claus to
Miss Baker's story. The second semester, though
perhaps short of parties, helped materially in
balancing the budgetg and We were able to make
gifts to the Annual, the A. C. E. convention,
and the children's frolic. All honor to Miss
Weller and to Carolyn Burnett, who have helped
to make it fun to be a Town girl.
A constitution for the "Y" Club was drawn up in the january meeting. Out of
this constitution came these objectives: that the club is to render social service and to
further the spirit of friendliness.
December proved a busy month with a Christmas Candlelight Tea, and a Christmas
party for some Evanston children. Every child received a gift and the party was a
success. At the Valentine Tea we served candy hearts and cookies. It was at this time
that plans were made for the Barn Dance.
This dance was the biggest event of the year. Headed by Amy Topic and four
committee chairmen, it was a big success, both socially and financially.
Our social work included sewing for the Presbyterian Hospital, helping Saturdays
at St. Vincents' and taking Easter baskets to crippled children. We hope to give what
we have in the treasury to the tennis court. All in all Miss Weiler and Marion Burkhart
are to be thanked for our great success again this year.
Glee Club has had a most successful year
due to the combined efforts of Miss Risler and
Mary Fort, to say nothing of a fine group of
members. They managed weekly meetings until
late spring, practicing sufliciently to present
several college programs. Their energies turned,
then, toward making instruments to accompany
them during further meetings and in their
Under the leadership of Bei-Sih Dzang and Kyih Tsung Kiang, co-presidents be-
cause no one can separate the two, the International Club had a truly international year.
Our ranks were further strengthened by the arrival of new foreign members, one from
Hawaii and one from Korea, and by the visits of Miss Colony on furlough from teach-
ing in India, and Miss Gray on furlough from teaching in Japan.
A trip to a Polish movie, preceded by a delicious Polish dinner, a visit to a Negro
church, and a Chinese meal prepared by the presidents were all part of the Club,s pro-
gram. We helped to send a delegate to the Grinnell Student Conference. A highlight
of the year was the Christmas Candlelight Tea, given for associate members of the club.
Having the best group of voices ever to be at National during any one season, the
choir scored several really musical triumphs. Miss Westervelt led the group through the
year, and made possible the fine choral assist to Festivals, Baccalaureate, Graduation
and an entire Assembly program at Easter time. The balance of voices of the group as
a whole was splendid, and the few trained voices added a great deal to the finished
effect. The choir was duly proud of an invitation to give a program in Chicago which
they were unable to present.
The orchestra may be small, but its loyal members are worth their weight in gold.
We all agree that the orchestra contributed a great deal to rhe gaiety of the Governing
Board dinner, and the Christmas festivities. Mrs. Rumry proves her versatility as a
group leader in providing many different musical experiences each meeting. And, too,
these girls aren't too musical minded to have a purely social meeting every now and
Graduate club offers a social hour once a
month for all graduate students. Some of
the meetings bring members together for a
cup of tea and a good chat in the Alumnae
Room. Quite as enjoyable are the party
meetings that come as a surprise to all but
Miss Frances Kern, club sponsor, has
made possible several enjoyable excursions.
One Saturday in January the members
gathered at the Cordon Club for a luncheon
and a tour through the Art Galleries and
lounges of the club.
A Valentine party and a St. Patrick's Day
tea welcomed the ten new members after
second semester. Then just for fun the
club had a party in March. They had dinner
at the college and spent the evening playing
Colleges from all over the country are
represented in the club, headed by Dorothey
Oakes, with Catherine Freeman as treasurer.
An interested group of girls turned out
for the Dramatic Club and elected as their
officers this year Phyllis Clemenson, Presi-
dent, and Peggy Dutton, Secretary-Treas-
Feeling that they would like to give a
play for assembly, the club offered "Sauce
for the Goslingsf' a short one act farce.
The cast did Well with few practices, under
the direction of Sylvia Pollock. The cast
consisted of Lois Cooley, jane Rogers, Alma
Martin, Phyllis Clemenson, Kay Hedman,
and Ruth Campbell. During the year Miss
Middleton and Miss Ford, sponsors of the
club, gave informal talks and demonstra-
tions on various subjects.
As a Hnal performance, the Club pre-
sented "Thursdays At Home". The cast in-
cluded Jean Rickel, Pearl Rogman, Sally
Eggleson, Madaline Trastek, Peggy Dutton,
Winifred Eckroy, Mary Palmer, Harriett
Beyer, and Rosemary Irvine. The farce
concerned a woman who, believing more
kindness should be shown agents, set aside
Thursday to receive them,-with hilarious
XVe've had splendid times this year, with our greatly increased
membership and our grand group of officers. We met twice monthly,
once at the college and once at the home of various members. Some
of our most enjoyable meetings were at Mrs. Galvarro's home in the
Our programs have been varied. We tried to have each member
take part in at least one meeting. The best way to do this seemed to
have committees of three girls each time. They took charge of the
reports and entertainment for us.
During the year the Book Club has tried to become acquainted
with the latest good reading about many subjects. A number of new
books were added to our circulating library. A few of the social events
we have had were a I-Iallowe'en party, a spaghetti dinner, a roller-
skating party, and a beach party.
We've sailed the seven seas, we,ve seen a Russian Cossack in a
tall black hat, we've listened to the French and watched the Chineseg
we've even had the king,s tea and slaughtered the kingis English.
Because We're travelers.
Mrs. Campbell entertained us in October with a French dinner
while Mrs. Taylor told us of her experiences in France. Alice Hoski
talked about her life in Russia and we had a luncheon at Yar. In
April there was a grand Mexican program, given by jean Dunlap and
Catherine Freeman. We had a grand time at the Hindu "Shalimar
Tea Gardensn and climaxed the year with a final spree at "The Little
Travelerv in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Mrs. Campbell was a wonderful sponsor and Bernice Vaughn an
equally eiiicient and jolly president. Marian Merrill was the vice presi-
dent, Jean Dunlap and Marjorie Winterbothem the secretary and
treasurer respectively. But more important Was Mary Jane Rood.
For she dispensed the Bismarcks!
Have you noticed a change in about fifteen girls' attitudes the last few months?
XVell, those are the girls who stayed every Tuesday night for an hour or so of basketball,
badminton, volley ball, etc. But the faculty! There you have a real group of athletes.
just ask them how they trimmed the girls at badminton one Wednesday evening.
With the combined enthusiasm of Mr. Bo and Miss Mount, and the athletic repre-
sentatives, athletics boomed this spring. There were tournaments in the six most popu-
lar girls' sports, and on a special assembly program there was an exhibition program of
basketball to decide the winners in athletics for 1937. An honest-to-goodness cup was
awarded the Winners to hold till next year.
Having successfully completed the
first three semesters of college, we are
ushered, with due solemnity, into the
mysteries of teaching. With the warn-
ings and good wishes of the supervision
department still ringing in our ears, we
set off very early the first morning.
Slowly the awkwardness of our situation
fades away and we really take hold,
managing periods, then whole mornings,
with Hne skill.
We are no longer just students. We
now play an important roll in the well-
being of hundreds of children along the
North Shore and in the city. With stu-
dent teaching comes more fun, yet more
knotty problems than we have ever faced.
Anticipated until we can feel our blood
pressure rise at the thought of it, then ex-
perienced with due fear and timidity. That's
Student Teaching. There is more emotion
attached to Student Teaching than to any
other single thing at National. Student
Teaching is all of life for at least two semes-
ters. From whatever angle we think of our
school life, Student Teaching manages to
creep in somewhere.
The new strange anticipation of our first
day. The jumpy, queer feelings. Will we
be able to cope with situations? Will we
understand? Will we be good? We try. We
clean up diligently. We open and close win-
dows, feed the rabbits, try not to look at
the clock as noon approaches. We speak
gently, a bit timidly to the children. We
paste pictures on the bulletin board, and
plan activities to go with them. We tremble
at the thought of our first twenty minut-e
presentation, even though we've rehearsed
before the mirror at home. We ask the
director to lunch, quickly, before she asks
That's the first term. We improve though.
We even get a bit callous to the cute sayings
of the children. No longer afraid before
our subjects, we hope they aren,t afraid of
us. We manage to keep order, answer any
surprising thing that creeps up.
But oh, the funny feeling when it dawns
on us all of a sudden that our Student
Teaching days are almost over. Quickly we
try to remember everything. Suddenly we
realize what grand fun it's been, what mar-
velous experience. Our last day is a sad one.
We hate to leave. Actually, we get senti-
mental about it. It,s been a new life, a
private life. The very words Student Teach-
ing will hold a special, intense, glamorous
Introductory adjustments over,
we settle down and take stock
of the situation. In every case
we can easily find cause for
complaint. Also, in every case,
we find ourselves surrounded by
the grandest youngsters We have
yet encountered. And, although
teaching should be highly im-
personal in the emotional sense,
we cannot help but remember
some children longer than others.
There are some children whose
personalities seem reflective of all
childhood, for whose acquaint-
ance we are grateful simply be-
cause they are true and earnest
and because their inquisitive in-
nocence helps to make both
teaching and learning worth the
Of our required teaching, no
place is more desirable than Mary
Crane Nursery. For, although
the North Shore Schools are
world renowned for their advan-
tages and luxuries, Mary Crane
is famous as a part of Hull
House. Down there we feel
closer to realities of life, stronger
in our influence.
Mary Crane is maintained as
a demonstration center for Na-
tional and is supported by the
Mary Crane League. National
sends two scholarship girls there
and many more clamor for the
privilege each semester. Contact
with Mary Crane is not soon
forgotten by the children or the
Bridging the gap between school days and
life ahead. A day that slips fleetingly by, a
day to which we look forward longingly,
backward lovingly. A day of medieval caps
and gowns, of joyous marching, of light-
hearted choral singing. We leave with red
satin hoods over black gowns, red carna-
tions and glistening diplomas.
It's a long time since we sat primly, a bit too self consciously,
at Miss Baker's introductory tea. Though out of the original "de-
pression Freshmen" of 1934 only sixteen remained, those sixteen still
hold fond remembrances of the good times that year: the splash
parties at Shawnee, the dinner at Cooley's fdid that instigate our
daily noontime trek to the Cupboard?j, the riotous humor Miss Mac-
Lennan put into the Faculty skit at our Cafeteria dinner, the Senior-
Freshman Bohemian party, the closing party at Basslers' flong since
an annual institutionj, the general opinion that Mary Grace James
made a wonderful president, Helen Regan a competent secretary,
Ginny Gregg a treasurer supreme, and Ellen Bennett a vice-president
worthy of Sophomore presidency.
And so our second year started under Ellen's direction. We were
acquainted with all the intricacies of college life and felt very much
in the limelight what with Mary Grace and Helen editing The Chaif,
Margie Clymer writing a Daisy Chain song we still remember, and the
entire class helping immeasurably to put over the St. Valentines Day
sale, then the gay formal dance at The Orrington in May, topped only
by the thrill of being a part of the Daisy Chainis glorious sentimen-
tality in June.
By now we had lost the sophistication assumed some years before,
for we felt important in the daily scheme of things and we could
afford to get fun out of our lofty positions. Char Bassler led us
capably, assisted by Mary Gardner and backed, naturally, by all of us.
Again we headed Chaff, that is Nancy Hubbard did, and we were well
represented in plays, festivals and social events all year. Olga Gay
was the cause for our successful winter prom, while Martha Kate
filled the treasury again on the fourteenth of February. But for all
our serious responsibilities and teaching problems we were just an
excited bunch of children when we heard who won the scholarships
for Senior year.
The spirit of leadership and excited cooperation carried us through
the many events of Senior year, giving to all of us energy which we
can never duplicate. A class luncheon meeting in the fall was quickly
forgotten in the hasty preparation for our Assembly stunt. Parties,
club events, teas for new students, vigorous athletic events, all these
and many more claimed our attention from the start, growing more
vital and important as the year wore on and the Midyear graduates
left. We began to realize how empty life would be in June, and we
busied ourselves with ever more tasks.
The Sing-a-song was fun this year and we helped to put across a
good athletic program, the festival promised to be the best ever, and
the tingling thrill of choosing our May Queen nearly climaxed the
year's events. Nearly, but not quite. For nothing can ever surpass
in our minds the enveloping excitement of joyful marching, the
beautiful sadness of last good-byes, the hopeful fears of starting anew
after four of the best years we have ever known.

TUESDAYS AT 2:00
The fact that "Nationa1ites" are really kids at heart
was proved by their reactions to the Freshies' "Circus
Assembly". There were thrills galore when the man-eating
animals jumped through the hoops, and when that strong
man lifted up no less than one thousand pounds, the
crowd went wild. So many fell in love with Addis Ababa
that he could easily have tripled his harem in no time at
all. Silence reigned when the hay shakers QI-Iula-Hulers
to youj were informed than National was a college, not
a South Sea Island. Incidentally, some of the Einsteins in
the upper classes still don't realize that it was a put-up
joke. All in all it was a real assembly. Very progressive,
to say the least.
Won't you buy a daisy?
Everyone proudly exhibiting a little daisy tag ....
Sophomores energetically carrying small green cans for
money and bunches of daisy tags to sell .... The whole
Sophomore class working together to present an assembly
on the story of the Daisy Chain .... The stage showing
a backdrop of a huge daisy with a center that talked ....
The Sophomore class singing a toast song to the Seniors.
. . . Smiles on Sophomores faces as Daisy Chain Day drew
to a close.
Did you buy a daisy?
Tuesday, January 12, 1937, the Morace I-Iann kinder-
garten entertained its P.T.A. organization. Qln other
words, the junior class presented its assembly.J The pro-
gram was opened and announced by the P.T.A. president,
Peggy Cosner. The director, Laura Jane Marsh, and her
two student teachers, Mary Ruth Allis and Jeanne Payne,
had quite a time keeping order among the pesky young-
sters, and flnally gave up trying.
The first on the program was little Clarence Graham,
QFrancis Dealj who gave a clever but hesitant recitation.
Next, little Charlie Davis and Louise Farwell QMartha
Conn and Virginia Kleinj played a piano duet. Then
Viggo Bovbjerg QEleanor Ricksj sang a song. Little Agnes
Adams CPauline Waechj also said a poem. Then one of
the mothers QMadge Zimmermanj gave an illustrated
"health talk" to the group.
Although several of the "proud papas" were bored and
would have left except for the watchful eyes of their re-
spective wives, the program was enjoyed by all-including
college students and faculty.
A bird,s eye view, just a glimpse of the traditional
events that take place in the social calendar. And it was
a lot of fun to take part in reminiscing over last year's
peaks of excitement. Such hilarity and hustle-bustle for
those in the children's play on Saturday afternoon and the
glorious Junior Prom that same night! The last minute
suspense until we saw the May Queen's face! The thrilling,
somewhat sad recalling of the friends who graduated last
June. Yes, all these events keep us stepping fast. But who
would want the year to drag along with no traditions to
THE SONG CONTEST
The auditorium lights were off, music was playing, a
hilarious stream of girls in mother goose costumes, even
a pair of big feet moved across the stage, a large Mother
Goose book opened and out ran Miss Muffett and then out
tumbled Jack and Jill. Who were these peculiar creatures?
None other than the freshmen dramatizing the good old
song "If Old Mother Goose Had Only made use of Na-
tional,s Wisdom and Lore!"
They certainly had started the song contest with much
gusto. Yes, we did guess their song. Next, the sophomores
brought forth the laughs with their mad dashes across the
stage, as they grabbed a piece of toast, fed the ish and
birds and dashed for the "Lug and it all began as the song
-"When the alarm begins to ring!,' X
The Juniors were unique in presenting a new song of
school memories. Their theme was more serious and as
they sang, girls crossed the stage dressed in costumes of
