some Hnve uncunnnen moments
Behind the power of any organization is the guiding, controlling
force of its executives. And just as the quality of its product is deter-
mined by the care taken in its creation, so is the merit of a college
measured by the leadership of its faculty. That National has so ine an
influence on its students may be partly due to the freedom of thought
that allows a stimulating divergence of opinion among the faculty. An-
other reason might be the friendly relationship which makes our interest
in them as persons equal to our appreciation of their intellectual and
professional abilities. And so, as we leave college, we may forget the
facts of their teaching, but we will carry with us the impress of their
personalities and their friendship.
Chief executive, President Baker, has the phenomenal ability to
have at her fingertips' control not only activity in many organizations,
including her work as Chairman of the National Committee for cele-
brating the Kindergarten Centennial, and a great deal of lecturing and
writing, but also finds time for personal contact with the students of
the college she guides. Part of the secret is answered in her secretary,
Mrs. Fehr, who manages National as efficiently as she plays badminton
in her leisure hours.
A true scholar, Miss Staley, once studied French in Paris in order
to meet the language requirements for a degree, and last year became
a Ph. D.
Collecting antiques is a hobby with Mrs. Davis, who finds time to
work them into her new home in Vllilmette, in between lecturing trips
to Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Mrs. Archer also enjoys finding
old pieces of furniture for the apartment she describes so well. Of
another sort are the antiques which attract Mr. lsenbarger, who walked
off with the fossil of an ancient horse from a National park in the
Matriculate, evaluate, certificate, and calculate is the tune that
keeps the registrar's office humming, as Miss McElroy and Miss Davis
try to make our credits add up to that grand finale, graduate!
Travel is a favored occupation with many faculty members. Among
those are Miss Kearns and Mrs. Taylor, who motored west last sum-
mer, and Miss Brecleson, who likes to drive a Plymouth coupe to
Duluth and the beauty spots of Minnesota. Mrs. Merriam makes fre-
quent trips to the East, where she formerly was a social case-worker.
Miss Springstun, on occasion, likes to travel quickly, and was tardy
one morning after encountering one of Evanston's slower-minded police-
men. A compromise solution was reached by Miss Kern, who so loves
Maine for summer vacations and California for winter trips that she
spends the rest of the year in the Middle XVest.
A versatile person, Miss Finger writes poetry and makes charcoal
sketches in addition to conducting a class in choric-speaking at North-
western. Accomplished in another way is Mrs. Morrill, whose inventive
genius creates back-rests of baggage, and bassinets of chairs.
Helping to keep southerners in the majority in the library is Miss
IYheeler, who comes from Georgia. Unlike Mr. Blair, who finds Illinois
a "god-forsaken" country after his native Texas, she makes no public
complaints about the climate. Mr. Graham is also silent, being more
interested in the education of his daughter Lynn, to whom he is
teaching the alphabet, as valuable library training.
Also interested in education is Miss Adams, who does publicity
work for the A. C. B., the Progressive Education Association, and the
Central Council of Childhood Education, teaches at Northwestern.
lectures, and follows her interest in movies for children-the right ones!
A group of unruly eighth-graders makes life interesting for Mrs.
Galvarro, who teaches them Latin in between periods of disciplinary
activity. Miss Clara Belle Baker belongs to many national committees,
lectures, writes, and provides an example of how charmingly a chil-
dren's school may be managed.
The upbringing of her young son Peter is giving Mrs. Clarke an
unexpected education. Now she believes she might possibly say a few
words about children, while formerly she thought herself quite well-
informed. Mrs. Campbell's "children", the class of 1937, came back
to National for the first Homecoming Day of the college.
Taking movies is the new hobby of Miss Learned, who has
photographed the nursery school children in many poses. Pictures of
eye-movements are interesting to Mrs. Black, in the Psychology Clinic
this year. Another promotion was Mrs. VVhitaker's to the Supervision
The world of music claims three members of the faculty. Miss Briel
is active in her own musical circle, and plays the organ for church
service and the choir. Unsuspecting counsellors were amazed by Miss
Risler's playing at Camp Oak Openings last summer-she plays jazz
and swing music with rhythm worthy of Benny Goodman. Cf Miss
VVestervelt's musical repertoire we all know, but we were interested
to hear of her repertoire of jokes, some of which she may have to tell
you behind a hankie.
A lot of dramatic scenes take place in Miss Linnell's office, but
it never looks so theatrical as when piled deep with miscellaneous objects
for the Alumnae bazaar.
In addition to having similar names, Mrs. Luther Carter and Mrs.
Letitia Carter are both politically-minded-the former in Iowa, where
her husband was a Congressman, and the latter in Indiana. XVith Mrs.
Morrill and Mrs. Roberts, the Head, this council of four effectively
govern the dormitory.
A clicking typewriter in the office on Saturday afternoons often
indicates that Miss Maddox is working on her Masters Also writing
a thesis is Miss Brubaker, who is teaching a grade for the first time
this year. One step ahead is Mr. Russell, losing weight working for his
doctorate. In the meantime he is general handy-man around the college,
showing the college-girls how to operate fire-extinguishers and the
junior high how to sell insurance, read tiine-tables, and play Simon-
Teaching Danish folk-dances to the faculty and improving their
badminton, ping-pong, and volley-ball, working with the colored people
of the NV.P.A. and the Emergency Nursery Schools, conferring with
college girls, and reading his book-a-week, Mr. Bo wards off the leisure
The roster of hard workers should also include Miss Howard,
who has guided the Placement Bureau during Miss Linnell's illness.
Her apartment-sharer, Miss Fink, has an insatiable appetite for books,
pamphlets, and articles on childhood, mental hygiene, and parent educa-
tion, and is an inveterate attendant of lectures, meetings, forums, de-
bates, and discussions.
Spring Festival brings out hidden talent in the faculty. Miss Fruit
is a wizard at costume construction, and Thellie's improvisation on
the piano is an inspiration. During the rehearsal period we gain more
appreciation for color and design by dyeing and painting costumes
with Miss MacLennan than in all our art courses. And our admiration
of Miss Mount deepens as we watch the creation of the festival develop
under her skillful imaginative direction.
Fnvied by the college girls are the children of the Demonstration
School, who study French with Mme. Dumas and Mme. Starrs, make
fascinating masks, paintings, and sketches with Mrs. Smith, and have
bottle orchestras and rhythm bands with Mrs. Rumry. At Hull House
we join the children in many activities, under the watchful guidance of
Miss Kenagy and Miss Hatch.
Two faculty members have quite unusual, though little publicised
traits. The first is Miss Ford, whose subtle humor has a delighted fol-
lowing among members of the seventh and eighth grades and the faculty.
The other is Mr. Davis, so sure of his convictions that no argument
or appeal his students can think of has ever been able to make him
change his mind.
Among things we remember are the times the kind-hearted office
staff showed us how to mimeograph, cashed our checks, lent us nickels,
and did many other appreciated favors. To them and to the faculty
our gratitude, our friendship, and our farewell.

That last afternoon at National as mem-
bers of the junior class we decided our last
-our senior year-would be something
pleasant to look back on. XYe gave our new
president a bouquet in honor of her election
and she ardently promised to do her best as
XYe've kept that thought foremost in
all our activities this year. VVe were going to
have fun! This school life we all loved was
going to end all too soon. "Let's get the
most out of it while we can." we said. YVe
started off promptly in September. As
seniors we had the privilege of initiating the
new fireplace which last year's seniors had
helped to give to the College. VVe initiated it
in high style: roasted weiners, buns, potato
chips, and marshmallows. Jeanne Payne and MRS- GALVARR0
Irma Kemp served as our able committee- .S'0111'01' Sfiozisoz'
women for the party. VVe renewed old
acquaintances after the long summer vaca-
tion and also got acquainted with our new class members.
After that first spree we settled down to work. XVe felt it was about time.
Many of the seniors were busy exhibiting their teaching ability in the Demonstra-
tion School at the College. 'Within a few months, however, we felt a need for more
recreation. XVe knew we definitely needed "a well-rounded schedule to insure our
having a well-developed personality". On March fourth an informal radio dance
was held at the dormitory and it proved such a phenomenal success that every one
was continually asking. "XVhen will there be another one
March was a busy month for the seniors. On the seventeenth, St. Patricks
Day, we sponsored an all-day food sale. Gaily decorated tables held delicious foods
which no one could resist. Paper shamrocks, green hair hows. and shamrock
candies and cakes were in evidence throughout the day.
Then came busy, fast-going days kept full with interviews, class work, and
lestival practices. VX'e helped elect a new president for council, realizing that her
work would go on next year while we were no longer there.
The festival was a success as are all the enterprises led by Miss Mount and
Miss Maclsennan. Four years ago we took folk dancing and art from these two
favorites. XVe were just becoming acquainted with them then: now we're old
friends. The festival was climaxed with the appearance of our May Queen. XVhat
excitement! Before us stood a member of our class as the May Queen of National.
Then came the prom! Qui' senior prom! XVeeks were spent in preparation,
for this was to be our last and linest affair. Amid soft lights and summer breezes
we glided across the floor with the lucky men we had chosen as our escorts.
The next day we awoke just in time to get ready for Baccalaureate. Wie donned
our caps and gowns for the first time and felt the dignity of the hour.
Vile helped at the Children's Frolic the next week and saw again the children
from Mary Crane Nursery. XVe remembered "way back when" we had done our
student teaching there. Some of us will teach children of that social standing:
others will teach more fortunate ones. VVherever we go or whatever we do we'll
always remember Vulfrano, Sabatine, Carmen, Rosco, and the others.
VVell, we said we would do things our last year and that's just what we have
done. Above all else we will always treasure the friendship of our sponsor, Mrs.
Galvarro, whose outstanding qualification has always been her ability to be one of

Fifty-live of the new laborers who reported for work on September sixteenth
were placed in the freshman department. These new employees, while of necessity
starting at the bottom, have every intention of working their way upg and already
having proved their merit, are to be advanced to the sophomore department where
more skilled labor is carried on. VVithout doubt, after laboring four years in the
various departments of the organization, most of them will be ready for white-
collar Qwell protected by a smockj jobs.
These additions to the working force of the business decided to form a local
union and chose Betty Sullivan for president and Sylvia VVright, vice-president.
Marjorie Lunoe received the secretarial position and Doris Garnhart was selected
to handle the financial affairs of the group.
VVith the business demands of the department placed in capable hands the
newcomers decided to indulge in a little social life after office hours, so a party was
held in the gymnasium on September twenty-eighth. The employees took advantage
of the opportunity to get acquainted with their co-workers and a number of their
This first venture into the gay life proved so successful that they lost no time
in hunting around for an excuse to hold another party. The novel idea of having
a treasure hunt was soon thought of fa good many other people have also thought
this a novel ideal, so the gala event was given on November eighteenth. As
searchers for treasure nearly always have a preconceived and definite picture in
their minds of that which they hope to find, so these seekers after loot were on the
trail of something eatable and easily findable. The enormous cache of red apples
in a nook on the third floor of the building answered both of these requirements.
The democratic policy of the organization was exemplified when all the mem-
bers of the department were invited to tea with the President, Miss Edna Dean
Baker. This was another of the many examples illustrated day by day of the fel-
lowship and spirit of oneness which typifies the whole organization and which makes
everyone feel that she is an important cog in maintaining the efficiency of the whole
Social inclinations had to be disregarded for a time while the department put
in some overtime work in order to meet the demands of the corporation for pro-
duction by the end of January. After the final auditing and inventory for l937
were completed, three new workers were welcomed into the ranks.
The freshman department held a very successful food sale on Valentines day
and another in May.
On March sixteenth Miss Nellie Maclsennan, sponsor of the group, entertained
at a delightful tea in the Alumnae room. The entire department think themselves
fortunate in having such an interested and understanding person as Miss Mac-
l.ennan for their sponsor. They also feel that they owe a debt of gratitude to their
counselors, Miss Mount, Miss Learned, Mr. Bovbjerg, and Mr. Graham, who did
many nice things for them during the year.
The group laid working clothes aside on April thirtieth and donned gorgeous
gowns for the freshman-sophomore formal at the Evanston Country C lub.
At the general assembly on May seventeenth the program was presented by
the youngest department and enthusiastically received by the other employees.
Practically all the workers showed a liking for sports, either as players or fans.
and departmental teams were organized in basketball, badminton, baseball, and
To climax appropriately the eventful year of the freshman department and
mark a milestone in the workers' progress, a farewell banquet was served in the
cafeteria in June, just before the summer shut-down of the organization. Wlieii the

The Alumnae Association functions as both a national and a local organization.
It has a national board which draws its members from Chicago and its surrounding
suburbs and which meets once a month in a central location in the city of Chicago.
There are twenty-two active chapters in nine states and Hawaii. These chapters
elect their own local officers and plan their annual program in accordance with the
needs and interests of their groups.
The aims of the Alumnae Association are three-fold. They are: first, fostering
National spirit and fellowship among the graduatesg second, acquainting with the
college young women who are interested in teaching and who have suitable qualities 3
third, maintaining two three-hundred-dollar scholarships-the Elizabeth Harrison
Scholarship and the Mrs. John N. Crouse Scholarship. The association also main-
tains the Guidon, which is sent to alumnae everywhere, keeping them informed of
college and alumnae activities.
Alumnae are building an Elizabeth Harrison Endowment Fund which shall in
time maintain one scholarship.
The activities of the National Alumnae Association have included four main
meetings this year: the fall meeting held in a downtown hotel in Chicago, the
holiday tea held in the Alumnae room at the college at Christmas time with a
Christmas story told by Miss Baker, the spring luncheon sponsored by a chapter in
a neighboring territory, and last, Alumnae Day following the May Festival at the

SCHDLIIRSHIP IIUIIIRDS '37-'38
Regardless of the fact that we fervently believe that "all men are created
equal", we must recognize the fact that some of us have more ability than others,
and that this should be honored. National has several scholarships to award to the
girls who they feel deserve this special recognition. They not only have attained
a high level of scholastic achievement. but they also are the girls who enter
wholeheartedly into many school activities. XVe all know them and remember
well the thrill we felt when they received their award on graduation day. Below
is a list of the girls who were honored with scholarships for the year 1937-38.

It is a tradition of National for the sophomores to present a chain of held
daisies each year to the graduating seniors. Twenty sophomores are selected by
their classmates to carry the chain. They are chosen on the basis of scholarship
and service. Equally as lovely as all preceding daisy chain bearers were the girls
selected to carry the contribution of this year's sophomores to the senior class.
The girls bearing the daisy chain of 1937-38 were Ruth Bachofen, Gerry Bell,
Eleanor Berwanger, Margo Coombs, Martha Gene Cunningham, Laura Deerinck,
Peggy Dutton, Sally Eggleson, Wiiiifred Eckroy, Jane Green, jane Hendy, Lillian
Horak, Doris Harpham, Rosemary Irvine, Ruth Kempes, Helen Ljunggren, Bar-
bara Morrow, Clarissa Milligan, Mary Palmer, Betty Pinney, Betty Scherer,
Jean Stott, Dorothy Wliite, and Harriet VVhite.
VV hen Commencement Day dawned this group of human pulchritude adorned
in flimsy white gowns of organdy, muslin de soie, and chiffon, heralded the approach
of the most beautiful part of the commencement exercises. Down the two center
aisles of the auditorium proceeded these twenty sophomores to form a picturesque
setting for the dignified seniors as they entered the auditorium, passed down the
aisles, and took their places on the commencement platform. As the last senior took
her place the four lines of daisy chain bearers moved forward, the two inner lilies
pausing to drape their flowery offering along the edge of the platform and the
two outer lines mounting the staircase on either side of the auditorium and draping
their ropes of daisies over the edge of the railing. The beauty of the processional
added much to the effect of the commencement exercises.
The senior and junior classes presented the Thanksgiving festival. The theme
this year was the fulfillment of the harvest. The setting was that of a field at the
close of day. Stalks of corn were plentiful. At one side was a small shelter made
of straw. Une by one the settlers presented the fruit of their toil. Shoulders laden
with ripe grapes, apples, and grain were bent in reverent joy. The air was filled
with praises to the loving Father who had again fulfilled his promise to his
children. A group of the young people joined together in a gay, colorful maiurka.
Thus thankfulness was expressed by youth in a happy and carefree manner, as
contrasted with the quiet reverence shown by the older people.
As the day came closer to night and deepened into purple, a silence fell upon
the people like a mantle softly covering them. The joyous singing and brilliant
dancing ceased as though at a command. From a distance the angelus clearly rang
out over the abundant fields. Slowly the people turned toward the last glow of
day and bowed their heads in heartfelt worship to Him who cares for His own.
Christmas with its joy and reverence was observed by the faculty and students
at a special assembly preceding the holidays. The choir and audience joined in
singing several Christmas songs.
The culmination Of the program was the traditional portrayal Of "There XVas
One Who Gave a Lamb". The theme of this pageant is true, heartfelt giving.
The wise men who followed the star would not give up their gold. The man
with the grain would not give up his harvest. The little girl with Howers had
not enough love in her heart to give them to the Baby Jesus. The last to seek
the star was the little boy who carried a lamb. In his child heart he had the
love that comes from true giving. He alone saw the Lord Jesus and laid the
lamb at the manger.

has grown through the periods of tryouts, casting.
and rehearsals, and has culminated in the line per-
formance of May 20th.
Setting the pace for the entire festival, the first
number had all the verve and spirit of youth. Eight
girls in flowing white crossed the stage and in
rhythmic movement showed the dynamic contrac-
tion and release of the modern dance.
As traditionally patterned as the modern dance
was free, the Mazurka, in its dash, color and quick
movement, brought gaiety to the next scene, with
pairs of dancers garbed in the brilliantly-hued cos-
tumes of southern Europe.
Skillful settings and costumes gave the choir
scene the unmistakable air of France at carnival
time. Shops labeled "Confisserie" and "Maison
du Coq D'Or", book-stalls, and inns formed a
background for music both gay and tender. City

the rollicking humor and sly fun-poking of King

Each year one day at National is dedicated to the grand-
est people in the world-our parents. On this day they are
invited to the activities especially prepared for them by their
daughters here at National. Charlotte Brown, the vice-
president of College Council, and her aides planned a fine
program for the parents this year. It was an all-day cele-
bration climaxed by the dinner in the evening. Mothers and
fathers were invited to visit the demonstration school and
classes during the day. In the afternoon, the Y Club pre-
sented a special Easter assembly. Immediately following the
assembly there was a tea in the Alumnae Room for the
mothers. ln the evening a dinner was held in the gymna-
sium, a dinner "as good as Mother makes". Miss Edna
Dean Baker gave a warm and gracious welcome to the
parents. Laura Jane Marsh spoke on how much National has
meant to her, and how much she felt she has gained from
year to year. It seemed as though she were speaking for all
National girls. Mr. Newcomb, Mildred's father, spoke in
behalf of the parents. He told of choosing National as the
college for his daughter, and how much he felt Mid has
gained from coming here. Following the dinner the Dra-
matic Club presented an entertaimnent. It was a comedy.
entitled "Consolation", ending the Parents' Day program on
a hilarious note. This splendid National tradition provides
an excellent opportunity for our parents to become acquainted
with life here at the college. In addition to meeting teachers,
friends. and other parents, they gain an insight into our
activities that our too-meagre letters do not give. Too often
we consider our life at school and our life at home as widely
separated, but this day provides an opportunity for the two
to became more closely knit together. This year Parents'
Day was especially successful for the parents and for their
daughters. The time-worn, but completely adequate phrase-
"a good time was had by all"-seems to describe our feelings
at the close of the glorious day.
One of the events of the year that Nationalites eagerly
look forward to is Play Day. For on this day all cares are
forgotten and the afternoon is dedicated to having an extra-
special good time. May third was the date set for the Play
Day this year. The weather man took note of the date and
gave us a day worthy of such an occasion. At two o'clock
we met in the assembly hall, arrayed in suitable sport clothes.
After a few announcements we adjourned to the playground,
and each class was divided into A and B groups for the
activities. The first event was a chariot race, which started
things in grand style. Next we tested our brawn in a Tug-
o-war. It must have been the sophomores that had their
Munchie-Crunchies for breakfast that morning. Then the
Babe Ruths and the Dizzy Deans had their opportunity in
a game of home run baseball. They were cheered on to
greater achievement by the class cheerleaders-Eleanor
Nevens, Hattie Beyer, Margot Coombs, and Marjorie Lunoe.
The Cubs may have Dizzy Dean, but we have-well pick
any nine. Then we recaptured the days of our youth in a
rope-skipping relay. Our old bones were crying out for rest
at this point, but then followed a potato relay and a peanut
scramble. The the judges-Mrs. Galvarro, Miss Fruit, Miss
Springstun, and Miss MacLennan-added up the scores.
Miss Baker announced a tie between the freshman class and
the sophomore class, and the prizes were awarded-A lolli-
pop for each member of the two classes. Then the faculty
lined up their ball players against the student team for an
exciting game of baseball. Those that weren't too full of the
popcorn, etc. that were sold during the afternoon enjoyed a
delicious steak supper. Mr. Bo was the chef in charge,
and a very able one. too. Then we wended our weary way
homeward, to hit the hay early. The next day, pictures of
the activities appeared in the paper. They were cut out and
added tor memory books as a record of another super day
spent at National.
Although the last few days before commencement are filled with many activ-
ities, the Tuesday before graduation is always set aside for the annual children's
frolic. Shopping trips, dates, and packing are forgotten and all turn out to enter-
tain for the last time some of their young friends from Hull House and other
settlements in Chicago. The bright eyes of the children glowing with anticipation
as they step from the buses which have brought them from the crowded city of
Chicago is enough reward for any girl who has given up an afternoon of her busy
commencement week. The joy of the children is limitless as they View the fresh
greenness and expanse of the college playground where they may run and explore
for several hours with no remonstrations about traffic and other hazards experi-
enced in their home environments. The entertainment committee always has the
afternoon well planned and activities move along at a rapid pace. This year Char
Brown served as the leader in the frolic. Under her direction committees were
organized and the schedule for the afternoon was planned. Games were played
that brought every one together in a spirit of joy and fun. 'Wleeks of worry and
care were dropped from the shoulders of the girls as they entered into the fun of
the occasion. Every one had a place and job-telling stories, dramatizing stories.
singing songs, supervising bathroom procedure, serving ice-cream and cookies, or
finally passing out gayly colored balloons and flowers.
At four o'clock the big buses pulled up again to take away a group of tired
but very happy children. Smiling faces protruded from bus windows, and the
college girls, equally tired and equally happy, waved their farewell as the big buses
lumbered away down the street.
LIIBDRERS IIISPLIW IIIIIQIIE TIILEIITS
Probably the most entertaining and thoroughly original assembly programs
of the year are those planned by the individual classes. The senior class always
sets the pace and sallies forth to present the first class assembly of the year. The
junior, sophomore, and freshman classes follow in the order mentioned. These
programs are inevitably greeted with riotous applause and much to the amaze-
ment of the spectators some erstwhile person, previously considered a very meek
and timid soul, appears to steal the show.
This year the seniors deemed it wise to present an opera, a ballet, and a drama
in one complete performance. Knowing the appreciation of their fellow students
for the esthetic, they did not wish to limit their offering to just an opera, a ballet,
or a drama. A program including all three would certainly be able to meet the
preferences of every one. The "Twinkle-toes Ballet" came first. In sprightly
manner the dancers thudded across the stage, casting shy glances at their adoring
public. "Encore! Encore !" was the cry of the audience as the dancers glided from
the stage. Such acclaim could not be disregarded, and the ballet returned for a
"The Lament of Lighthouse Lill", a heart-breaking drama of the old school,
followed the ballet. The audience gave vent to their emotions and hissed the villain
and cheered the hero. The final moments of the drama held the audience breathless
as they awaited the arrival of the hero, Mary june VVolcott, to save the sweet
little heroine, Marion Burkhardt, from the dastardly arms of the villain, Evelyn
"Carmen" was the operatic production of the day with Alma Martin as the
gay toreador and Peggy Cosner as the lovely senorita. A supporting chorus added
to the musical background. The highlight of the performance was the arrival of
the bull. Bravely the toreador fought him off and finally, just like Ferdinand the
bull, he scented the beautiful flowers and curled up and went to sleep.
The juniors came steaming up the river in the show boat and docked in the
college auditorium to present a variety of entertainment. The flora dora girls were
very much in evidence with their specialty dance. The barber shop quartet with
their hair cut in the latest styles rendered several numbers. Gutstanding displays
of choric dancing followed. This art which is comparatively new to the school was
very enthusiastically received. Sylvia Pollock's interpretation of jack Be Nimble
was thought to be especially powerful and awe-inspiring.
Snow VVhite and the Seven Dwarfs was the presentation of the Sophomore
group, and all those who saw this premiere performance felt that Vtfalt Disney
might well hire some of the star performers for future productions. The sopho-
mores deserve much credit for the time and work which was necessary to present
such a lovely entertainment. Rosemary Irvine as Snow Wliite and Rotha Turner
as Prince Charming contributed much to the musical sequence of the plot. All the
seven dwarfs deserve special mention and as in the original Walt Disney movie,
Dopey in the personage of Barbara Morrow stole the show. All in all the presen-
tation was a huge success and received much praise,
ln May the freshman group presented its program. In a gay French casino
talented members of the group danced, sang, and recited. Mme. Dubonnet's dancers
were a radiant group, dancing with an inspired sense of the beautiful. jane
Stevenson, one of this ethereal group, however, must have had a dark past, for
she frequently deserted the classical-ininded group "to truck on down". The
startling appearance of the class sponsor, Miss Nellie Maclsennan, brought peals
of laughter from the house. The freshman assembly concluded the schedule of
class assemblies for the year, but it has been suggested that room be left next year
for a faculty assembly. Talent displayed in the song assembly by certain members
of the faculty has no doubt caused this request.

College Council is Nationals student-faculty governing board and is under
the supervision ot President Edna Dean Baker and Dean Wren Staley. It is
composed of faculty members representing classes and certain organizations, and
student representatives. The student list includes the president and vice-president
of council, who are elected by all students from the senior class each spring, the
presidents and vice-presidents of each class, representatives from the dormitory
and town girls' associations, Chaff editor, National editor, and the presidents of
This year's group of council members discussed many vital school problems.
To keep the college better informed of the council's activities an account of each
meeting was written up in Chaff. As usual the council sponsored the annual drive
to raise funds to send delegates to the A. C. E. convention. The proximity of the
convention in Cincinnati enabled this year's council to send two representatives,
Charlotte Brown and Mildred Newcomb.

This year has found the important publication, Chaff, very enthusiastically
received by the National students as well as the faculty. No wonder this state of
affairs has been found, for under the efficient guidance of its editor-in-chief, Peg
Bigler and its assistant editor, Madaline T rastek, a good paper would be inevitable.
The policy of the paper has been to report all news and happenings of interest
that are shared by all,-and every two weeks the paper has lived up to this goal.
Some of the columns that had proved most interesting last year have been retained
this year, such as "Maudie", "Around the Town", "Alumnae News", and "Sports".
These articles are continued each week along with reviews of current books and
exceptional editorials. As often as possible Chaff has been made even more attrac-
tive to the eye by cartoons. Following the custom of several years the last issue
of Chaff came out immediately following the graduation ceremony. This issue is
always looked for with even more anticipation than usual since it contains pictures
of the girls in the junior class who receive scholarships for the next year, not to
mention a detailed account of the various and sundry happenings during the last
few days of rushing before graduation.
The staff of Chaff, including some seventeen members, is to be complimented
on its promptness in getting news and incorporating it into spicy articles.
At the beginning of the fall term the annual staff was confronted with two
major problems, the iirst being a means ot increasing the financial status of the
year book and the second being the creation of a deiinite theme for the book.
Financial matters soon became a minor issue, for Ruth Huson possessed an
uncanny ability for securing money. If a prospect was mentioned it was sate to
wager that Ruth knew the technique that would loosen the strings ot his purse.
The evolution of the theme was a much slower process, however, and it was not
until December that it hnally materialized. The art and photography departments
were equally busy during all this time. All through the year camera shutters
clicked, photographing memorable occasions.
XVith all work completed the staff spent the remaining days of the year pray-
ing that nothing would happen to cause the destruction of the establishments oi
the engravers and printers in whose hands now rested the fate of a year's work.
The statt sincerely hopes that their many sleepless nights have not been in vain
and that this year's book will provide a lasting picture of a grand N. C. E. year.
The Town Girls' Association has enjoyed a very eventful year. On September
29, l9.37, the new girls were officially welcomed into the association after a very
few hectic days of initiation. No one will ever forget how queer the girls looked
attending classes and even a field trip one day in their house coats. Remember,
they had their hair in curlers, wore no make-up. and had cold cream on their noses?
The next important event was the Halloween Dance held in the college gym-
nasium, which had been transformed into a most intriguing penthouse. Christmas
with a dinner party followed with Mr. Davis as Santa Claus and Mr. Russell as
chief carver of the roast pig. In February the association welcomed several new
members and in their honor held a Colonial Dinner. Then on March 31, at five
o'clock, was the long-tallied-of carnival with the dormitory girls as special guests.
There was free entertainment and food for all those who attended. The year ended
with the most important event of the year-the dinner in honor of the graduating
town girls, a fitting tribute to a splendid group of seniors, to whom were extended
heartfelt wishes for a successful and happy future.
Marienthal and Company is organized as a housing project for National
students. The purpose of the company is to provide the stock-holders with
increasing dividends of health and happiness.
The recreational program of the industry began with a formal Qpen House.
October fifteenth: and to the strains of a good orchestra, the stock-holders became
acquainted with young men of Northwestern and other colleges near by. :X
delicious Thanksgiving dinner with faculty members as guests was enjoyed in
November. This was followed by the exciting Christmas season with it party for
the little colored children, formal Christmas dinner, and early morning stories
told by Miss Baker. March sixteenth was the annual Hoot-Nanny Night Club
with floor shows, refreshments, and fortune-telling. The proceeds from this under-
taking went to the company Udate room". Prospective stock-holders, who were
entertained for a week-end in March, were very enthusiastic about the company and
many plan to join its ranks next fall. Late in spring Marienthal and Company
planned a tea for the Town Girls' Qrganization and had the pleasure of serving
tea to many of their friends on that association.
The beginning ot the year saw the athletic commission busily involved in
promoting a series of heated hockey games. Wlhen the days grew too cold tor
outdoor activity, we adjourned to the gymnasium tor badminton. Every Tuesday
night saw eager and enthusiastic girls playing badminton with the result that as
we became more proficient in the art of the game, we challenged the faculty. To
assist students in keeping the school-girl iigure, the athletic board next promoted
Monday night swimming at the Norshore Athletic Club. This mermaid activity
has been a very popular activity throughout the year. Basketball tournaments on
Thursday afternoons were next in order and these games proved equally enter-
taining to both spectators and actual participants. May we add, however, that
those girls in the game had the advantage as far as the distribution of the fun ot
the game was concerned. ln spring attention was turned to those two well-known
sports, baseball and tennis.
The athletic program was climaxed with the annual Play Day, which was
held Tuesday, May third. Interclass competition reigned on this day with a
variety of contests and relays between the classes. The highlights of the day were
the traditional tug-of-war between the classes and the faculty-student baseball
game. Such strenuous activity led to thoughts of food. so the day was concluded
with a delicious steak supper held at the new fireplace on the college grounds.
This splendid athletic program for the year 1937-38 was carried on through the
combined efforts of athletic chairmen Mary Fort, junior, Ruth Kempes, sophomore.
and Grace Robertson. freshman, under the leadership of "Perry" McCabe, senior.
Under the able leadership of two sponsors and twelve directors and with full
cooperation from the one hundred and fifty members of the company, the Y Club
closed its 1937-38 books with an unusually line report on its output of social
service and spirit of friendliness-the objectives of this organization.
Un the board of directors Dorothy White presided as president. Mary Palmer
served as vice-president, and Virginia Lecey served as secretary and Helen Ford
as treasurer. Committee chairmen for the club were Lillian Horak, Martha Gen
Cunningham, Ruth Bachofen, Harriet Beyer, Eleanor Berwanger, june Zettegran,
Harriet VVhite, and Ruth Kempes.
Since social service is one of the main objectives of the club the members were
extremely busy in the field. They began by welcoming the new students in the fall
and assisting them in registering. At Thanksgiving they furnished a needy family
with a basket, and at Christmas time they entertained the children of the Evanston
Family Welfare at a gala party. Candy dolls were sent to the Illinois Children's
Home and Society, and scrapbooks were compiled and given to the Cook County
hospital. At Easter time an Easter egg hunt was enjoyed by many underprivileged
Numerous teas, a reception, and refreshments for meetings were just a part
of the general routine of the social committee. The gala social event of the year
was the famous Y club barn dance. Farmers and farmerettes "trucked" to real
"hill billyw music in the gym, which had been converted into a typical barn.
The first thing in the way of singing this year was the rendition by the choir
at the Thanksgiving Festival. As usual the audience thought the selection of songs
appropriate and the program beautifully performed under the able direction of
Louise St. John VVestervelt.
New Trier High School requested the choir's presence in December, and after
much discussion about what date it was to be, the members turned out "en masse"
one cold night to present a "fine piece of work" Qwords of Miss VVesterveltj.
Then came the college's favorite, the Christmas Festival, bringing with it the
choir of angels on stage and the additional voices behind the curtains. How truly
heavenly were the voices as they sang the beautiful seasonal songs. It was a lovely
performance as evidenced by the tears of the audience. That in itself is the finest
tribute that can be paid to any group of singers.
For a taste of relaxation and lots of fun the choir had a Saint Valentines
dinner at the college. At this time the choir discussed ways and means of earning
money to purchase choir robes to further enhance the appearance of the choir. The
fund was started by Miss VVestervelt herself. She placed a crisp dollar bill on the
table and asked those at the dinner to cover it with change.
The May Festival was the next opportunity for the choir to display their
talent. Amid the streets of Paris they sang the bright and lilting songs "The
Country" and "Caranaval" by Fourdrain.
Songs for Baccalaureate and Commencement concluded the work of the choir
for the year, and it couldn't be helped if the voices of the senior members were a
little choked on the last phrase or two of the songs.
International Club this year as in past years has been striving to maintain
its goal of promoting good will and friendship between nations. The club tries
to study the conditions-political, educational, social, and cultural of other coun-
tries, so that better understandings and closer relationships may be established.
This year two new students from Bulgaria increased the number of foreign
members of the club. Various other countries were represented by students either
who came directly from foreign countries or whose parents came from abroad.
Some of the countries represented were Bulgaria, Korea, Russia, Finland, Polan-.l.
Sweden. Hawaii, India, and others.
One of the outstanding events of the year was the Bulgarian Christmas Eve
celebration in honor of the Associate Members of the Club. At this time the mem-
bers learned about the Bulgarian Christmas customs and traditions. The refresh-
ments which were served were as close to the real Bulgarian food as could be pre-
pared here, and members of the club sang Christmas carols in Bulgarian.
Throughout the year trips were taken to various places of interest in and
about Chicago, and several lectures concerning other countries were given by
friends and members of International Club.
Because of the intense feeling in the Far East, the Club emphasized a Japanese
as well as a Chinese friendship, and close contact was kept with former members
of the club in both Japan and China.

If you want to read C0110 with H10 lVi11d, T110 Citczdcl, Of Min' and Man, or
come for just a good social "gab-fest", you will iind Book Club meeting once a
month. Wie have been ultra-sophisticated chatting over the tea cups. VVe have
been continental in learning how to master spaghetti in the right manner. VVe
have been just plain American girls at our Weiner roast and roller-skating party.
Many laughs were enjoyed along with Glee and Grchestra Clubs over the
dramatization of T110 Swiss Family .lllfllllldffllll for our assembly. VVith the brilliant
suggestion that the program be presented in rehearsal form, the members adjourned
to the auditorium for a short practice. On the day of presentation the assembly
looked startled and then gazed sympathetically toward the members of the cast
when Mrs. Galvarro started to prompt the participants from the audience. The
assembly soon relaxed, however, when they realized that the cast had been pre-
pared in advance for the corrections. The "walking rehearsal" proved a novel
idea and added much to the merriment of the program.
Our Friday night meetings at the homes of various members have been an
outstanding feature of our club. Throughout the year our programs have been
unusual and varied, and all members have cooperated fully. Many of us have
attended book reviews, and most important of all we have added many new books
to our circulating library. As in all organizations we need a financial program and
our weekly food sales have added dollars to our treasury and pounds to our weight.
All in all we think we have had a most successful year with our increased
membership and the wise guidance of Gene Burgeson, president: Mrs. Galvarro,
sponsorg Persida Degan, vice-president and librarian: Jeanne Payne, secretaryg
and Evelyn Curto, treasurer.
VVith great gusto we started off the year 1937-38, our membership swelled
by an impressive number of new girls. Lucille Kramp, just returned from European
shores, gave us a glowing account of her summer spent in Fontainebleau, France.
At our first dinner we were the guests of our sponsor, Mrs. Campbell.
january brought graduation for some of us, in whose honor a farewell luncheon
at Piccolo's was arranged. We met next to enjoy an account of Europe as seen
through an artist's eyes-made all the more vivid by a display of water colors
portraying many beautiful old world scenes. On a blustery, snowy day in February
we gathered for a luncheon arranged by Edna Pearl Meyer at a "Little Bit of
Sweden," and in the warmth and color of this atmosphere we soon forgot the
cold, wintry blasts outside.
At this point, having in mind future vacations, we were more than anxious to
hear about actual prices and possible itineraries for foreign travel. In March
Frances Phelps contacted one of the well-known travel agencies in Chicago:
and after a meeting with its representative, we felt ourselves initiated into the
mysteries of travel abroad. Traveling vicariously has made us want the real thing
-so here's hoping.
"Yarn, a Russian restaurant and a favorite of last year, was our next rendez-
vous for luncheon. Once again we found the soft lights, music, and intriguing
food a la Russe very delightful. Spring and cherry blossom time found us wending
our way to "Futaba", where we sat on cushions and wielded our chopsticks in true
japanese fashion. And so we came to the end of the year, and not having the time
nor the wherewithal to do any extensive traveling, we decided one day in May
to answer the call of the wanderlust and set out for an all-day adventure, our
destination-an attractive spot where we could have luncheon and enjoy the great
The Glee Club has been a National union of great strength in numbers as
well as in vocal capacity. VVith the motto "If you enjoy singing, join the Glee
Club" the membership of the club has contimied to grow, for there are always
many girls wishing to express their happiness through song. The repertoire has
been varied, including classical music to please those who prefer the everlasting
beauty of the classics and popular songs to please those who are "swing-minded''.
XVhatevei' the selection, however, Miss Risler has been able to meet the require-
ments as an accompanist.
Several weekly meetings were used to prepare for college programs in which
the Glee Club participated. The most outstanding undertalzing was the presenta-
tion of songs under the leadership of Sally Taber at the Song Festival in April.
The success of the organization for the year was the result of the combined efforts
of Mary Vey, president, Miss Risler, sponsor, and the entire membership of the
XV ith former members of colleges and universities throughout the country the
graduate group experienced little difficulty in finding a wealth of experiences on
which to build their meetings. Meetings of the club are primarily social, and this
no doubt accounts for the friendly atmosphere which permeates all meetings from
the very beginning of the year. Monthly teas and parties soon filled this year's
schedule. Being "grads", the members have had the Alumnae Room at their dis-
posal and often have felt envious glances being cast in their direction by other
organizations in the college. At Christmas time the club entered into the spirit of
the season by providing an easel and several playthings for the VV.P.A. nursery
school. St. Patricks Day saw the graduate club at the very peak of party life.
Festive table decorations added to the holiday spirit at the dinner and lack of Irish
ancestors did not limit the activity of the occasion. After dinner the graduates
adjourned to the gym for a few turns at that popular game of badminton. Can
any one doubt the fun the club has had, with fun-loving Catherine Freeman as
president and amiable Miss Kern as sponsor?

Former orchestra members started off the year by delving into dark corners
and hidden recesses of the college to seek out new talent for their organization.
Any one seen entering the college with an elongated package was at once considered
a musical genius and was waylaid by a member of the orchestra. Delightful
melodies were soon Hoating from the music room on Thursday afternoons as time
and practice began to lessen the symphonic difficulties of the new group of members.
Harmony has been the key-note in the social as well as in the musical life of
the orchestra Therefore, they have spent many evenings at the homes of various
club members. Instruments were always in evidence, and these evenings were
spent in both a sociable and a musical way. Particularly delightful was the eve-
ning spent with Mrs. Rumry, the sponsor, who yielded to the entreaties of the
girls for several organ selections. In April the orchestra added a great deal to
the assembly period by contributing in a musical way to the program planned
jointly by the Book, Glee, and Orchestra clubs. The year's activities have been
led by the president, Laura Jane Detrich, and the sponsor, Mrs. Rumry.
At the first meeting of the Dramatic Club the members elected the following
girls as their officers for the year 1937-38: Rosemary Irvine, president, Josephine
Reeves, secretary, and Edel Bovbjerg, treasurer.
011 the second of December the club members sponsored a series of VValt
Disney movies to increase the depleted funds of the club. Children from Evanston
and the North Shore suburbs attended the movies, giving vent to loud cheers.
whistles, and applause. There was no doubt about the professional quality of the
performance, if the reaction of the audience was the criterion. In all respects it
resembled a Saturday matinee at the neighborhood show house.
A one-act comedy entitled "Consolation" was presented by the club as after-
dinner entertainment for the parents on Parents' Day, Tuesday, April twelfth.
The cast included 'lean Rickel, Betty Sullivan, Phyllis Clemenson, Charlotte
Randolph, and Lois Cooley. The Parents' Day program as usual was the main
event on the Dramatic Club calendar, and all the members were anxious to exhibit
their talents, for true talent is never more appreciated than by a group of mothers
and fathers gazing proudly at the performance of their offspring.
Talks on stage make-up, children's plays, and other phases of stage work were
presented throughout the year by the club sponsor, Miss Elizabeth Middleton,
and Miss Edith Ford and Mr. Arthur Blair, instructors in the college.

of our gentler friends, she's not getting her
quota of experience. Rabbits, guinea pigs,

Not a small part of student teaching are
the conferences with supervisors and di-
rectors. In these intimate talks things are
revealed and discussed that even one's best
friend would tremble to tell one. Psychology-
wise supervisors reinflate one's ego by tell-
ing what good techniques and methods one
is using. This makes for a happy balance
and the student teacher grows like a pam-

schoolj is so small as to be negligible. And
"experienced" is the word for it-having
truly "learned by doing".

the dance to be held at the Evanston Country Club on Saturday, April thirtieth.
The outstanding publicity stunt of the year was the Hit Parade. The entire student
body was given the opportunity to choose the dance music for the formal. The
ballroom was artistically decorated and the music supplied by Russ Kobow's
orchestra added to the enjoyment of the event. The originality of the freshmen and
sophomores was again in evidence when the music of an electric organ pealed
forth during the intermission. The success of the affair was reward enough for the
strenuous efforts of the two classes in putting across their spring formal.
The college remained dance-conscious after the dance at the Evanston Country
Club, for the seniors now came forth with the announcement of their dinner dance.
This was the dance which every one had been anticipating as the gala event of
the year. A gala event was exactly what it proved to be. For days the seniors
watched overhead skies, trying to predict the weather for june fourth, for it was
rumored that a clear night would mean dancing under the stars at the Skokie
Country Club. Sodas and col-:es were given up as the girls began to hoard their
money for the dance of the year. The dinner was delicious and very well served
and if the statement is true that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach,
surely many a man at the senior formal must have lost his heart completely.
Dancing followed the dinner. For manv it was the last college dance, so they
25 - ti .
counted the hours precious ones and enjoyed them to the full.
