During the Junior year several parties were given which served
to promote broader acquaintance and class spirit. The latter was well
shown on the occasion of the Spread and Dance given in honor of the Class
of 1910 on June Qd.
Numerous appropriate toasts added wit and wisdom to the general
enjoyment, and Guy E. McLean as toastmaster fulfilled the highest

l9lI THE NEUME 6l
The days of June 13, 14 and 15 found us sad and forboding Juniors,
but with their passing a great transformation took place, and we became
light-hearted Seniors. As such we have earned the merited distinction of
having unusual class spirit, and of being loyal, earnest workers for the
good of 1911 and N. E. C.
Nineteen Hundred and Eleven was much in evidence on Class Day,
greatly to tl1e discomliture of the redmen. For awhile it seemed as
though there would be bloodshed, but finally the tomahawks were lowered
and buriedg now the story of the Indians is forgotten histo1'y.
In the fall of 1910 we again met in Recital Hall, this time as full-
Hedged Seniors, with the ,weighty problem before us of the election of
Class oliicers. Our present list of ofiicials was the result of that meeting.
The next big event of tl1e year was tl1e party given by us in honor of
the Juniors, whereby we became better acquainted with them, and they
better acquainted with each other.
'l'hroughout the year we have enjoyed many pleasant evenings to-
gether, our parties being characterized by jolly good-fellowship and
wholesome fun. W'e are now planning a skating party at the Arenag also
getting ready for a big vaudeville performance in Jordan Hall on May 10th.
When June comes, and witl1 it our graduation day, it will be with
sincere regret that we shall go our several ways, for we shall hate to part
from the friends we have made during our stay at N. E. C.
To our Alma Mater we offer many praises, for she has given us the
best possible equipment for our life's work.
We step out into the world, loyal sons and daughters of N. E. C.,
knowing that for whatever success may crown our efforts it is to her we
must render thanks.
VVe bid you 4' Au Revoir."

The junior Class
HE CLASS OF 1912.-To the other students of the Conservatory
nothing but the mere mention of these numerals is necessary to cause
every knee to bow and every tongue to praise. To the Class itself
-how inadequate, to describe the thrill of well-merited pride that
permeates our beings, seem any words that are at our command. No
former Junior Class would dare to challenge our statement,-that in us the
Conservatory has reached the culmination of its ambition,--since in actual
combat we could outnumber any of our predecessors.
Very shortly after that agreeable event called the junior entrance ex-
amination, when each of ns did his best to entertain Mr. Chadwick, and
convince him of our individual talent, we were called together for our first
class meeting. Since our organization class meetings have been conducted
according to slricl parliamentary law, and, with the exception of a few
slight misdemeanors for which our President gently upbraided us, we have
really been very well behaved.
There never was another such Entertainment Committee as that of
1912. If the members of the Class are not well acquainted it is indeed
their own fault. Early in the year we had been entertained by the Seniors,
in order to help us in getting acquainted. A little later we joined the
Seniors at a concert and reception as guests of Sinfonia. The first affair
arranged by the Entertainment Committee was on December 20th. Poor,
overworked Recital Hall patiently listened to the chattering, and looked on
during the dancing. On january 26th it was conclusively proved, by the
quality of molasses candy pulled, that musical people are not necessarily
one-sided. They can be clever in other arts than music. On February
25th a poverty party was held. The invitations were supposed to make
plain that all should come as poorly dressed as possibleg but from tl1e scant
number who accepted, most of the members must have thought a poor
attendance was requested. On March 17th the Seniors and Juniors again
united in an evening's good time. Thus far we surely have had successful
affairs, and we are confident that our clever committee will see that we
have many more before the year is over.
Ilowever, our class spirit is by no means of a wholly social nature.
Neither do we aim merely to pass the examinations before us, and in the
end carry off triumphantly a Conservatory diploma. VVe want more than
to pass the examinationsg we hope to leave tl1e Conservatory such amply
equipped musicians as to reflect credit on our Alma Mater.

HE history of the Class as far as the middle of April of last year has
been recorded in THE NEUMES of the past two years. Since then
the Class has experienced a very strenuous life. One event that will
cause the Class to be long remembered was the Mason 81 Hamlin Prize
Competition. We feel honored to be the first to compete for the Mason Sz
Hamlin grand piano, so generously offered by that company. The six
pianists who played that evening covered themselves with honor and the
Class with glory. That the contest was very close is evident from the fact
that the judges-Mr. Fiedler, Mr. Chadwick and Mr. Loefler-were so long
in deciding to whom the prize should be awarded. Eyes and ears were
open, and hearts beat fast as Mr. Goodrich came on the stage, and an-
nounced the winner, Julius Chaloff.
The Class presented an immense wreath to Mr. Chaloff, which he had
diiliculty in getting home, as the elevated conductor did not appreciate its
About the first of May TPIE NEUME came out. Classes before have
been proud of their NEUMES, and we are proud of ours, particularly because
its publication enabled us to present the Conservatory with fifty dollars for
new books for the library.
Miss Head and her Entertainment Committee worked hard for the
social welfare of the Class, and among other things, arranged a Log Cabin
Party at Mr. Wingate's cabin in Lawrence. At this party we learned that

some were really skillful at quoits, and that certain girls can run a race that
would alarm all world's record holders. The spread in the cabin was not
the least important event of the day. Mr. Wingate has always been
thoughtful of his classmates, and his kindnesses will never be forgotten
About the first of june the Juniors gave a Spread at Shooshan's. They
made the evening pleasant for us, and proved the benefits of the good
feeling that has always existed between the two classes.
Our Commencement festivities began early, when Mr. and Mrs. Chad-
wick received the Class at their home on June 10th. The day was stormy,
but nearly all of the Class attended.
On the following Wednesday evening the Class Concert was given in
Jordan Hall. The program was as follows :-

the Class Day Committee, deserves much credit, as does Mr. Bishop, who
coached the play. This meant many hours of unseliish devotion to the
interests of the Class.

In past years classes have held banquets on the evening of Class Day,
hut Mr. and Mrs. Flanders kindly invited us to a reception at their home
in Brookline, and as all were eager to accept their invitation, the banquet
custom was abandoned.
Of course Tuesday afternoon was the day of all days in 1910 that the
Class will ever cherish. The exercises took place at the Boston Opera

Every member was well received. We are particularly proud of our
pianists, and the playing that day was remarkable.
The Annual Reception and Reunion of the Alumni Association was
held the same evening in Recital Hall. At this time thirty-nine out of a
class of fifty-four joined the Association. We are proud of this large per
cent, for it represents more than twice that of any previous class. It is an
outward sign of the love and respect the Class of 1910 has always had for
its Alma Materg it simply means that we wish to remain devoted to the
great institution for all it has done in the moulding of our own careers, and
even more for all it may do for classes to come.

As the season draws to a close retrospcction reveals a year of continued
success. This year's roll shows the loss of Bros. Doersam, Hewitt, Moss,
Simonds, Scott and Stone, whose presence and efforts we sadly missg but
in their places are infants Boyles, Brown, Cook, Fairfield, Kaiser, Page
and Vogel. Although the loss of a veteran is always felt, young blood
brings vigor and enthusiasm.
The Calendar for the year has been an interesting and varied one.

In addition to these some other successful ventures have been held.
A debate on the tariff question, at which Messrs. Flanders, Hunt and
Fortin acted as judges, was most prontable, the judges being most enthu-
siastic over the breadth of argument of the papers read.
In conjunction with the Pan-Hellenic Society a profitable bazaar was
held in Recital Hall.
About May lst we hope to have our annual theatricals in Jordan Hall,
and indications point to our usual excellent standard.
This year the Convention will be held with Epsilon Chapter at the

Alpha Chi Omega History
LPHA CIII OMEGA was founded October 15, 1885, at De Pauw
University, Greencastle, Ind., by James L. Howe, Dean of the
University. Since that time sixteen chapters have been organized
in schools of collegiate rankg the newest one-Rho Chapter-having been
established in the University of W'ashington, October 14, 1910. The
alumni chapters number six.
While requirements include that fifty per cent of the membership be
musical and fifty per cent literary students, Zeta Chapter, of the New
England Conservatory, enjoys the unique position of being the only one
which has been formed in a school of lllllSiC. I-Ier charter was granted
December 16, 1895.
A new and gratifying honor has come to Zeta, also, in that the present
Grand President, Miss Evangeline Bridge, was formerly of Zeta Chapter.
The spirit of helpfulness which pervades fraternities as a whole was
shown in the Christmas Bazaar, Lecture and Dance, which were given just
before the Christmas vacation by the Fraternity and Sororities of the Con-
servatory, for their individual scholarship funds. Zeta expects to give her
scholarship for the coming school year.
Each year a musicale, dance and luncheon are enjoyed by the girls, to-
gether with lesser and more informal 4' good times." School work seems
to be taken up with greater zest after one of those refreshing little breaks
in the routine.
Zeta girls of Alpha Chi Omega feel that the open motto, f'Together
let us seek the heights," helps them as could no other in the study of their
chosen art, and the aim of each and every Alpha Chi is to go on seeking
and striving to help, not only each other, but all with whom they come in

HE Mu Phi Epsilon Sorority was founded in the Metropolitan Col-
lege of Music, Cincinnati, Ohio, November 13, 1003. At present
we have chapters in eleven ofthe well-known musical institutions of
the country. In the glorious art of Music, which is the corner-
stone of our sisterhood, we aim to perfect ourselves.
Beta Chapter was reorganized and reinstalled March 5,1909. This
year we have accomplished fairly well the work we set for ourselves in the
program arranged. Our study of the Wagnerian operas has proved very
interesting and inspiring, even though we realize many of the operas need
deeper research and study than we have had time to give them. At our
business meetings we have devoted part of the evening to illustrating the
works of the different composers of the earliest time up to those of the

Dormitories, was on. Yells, songs and colors were much in evi-
dence. On that day Kate Wamel of Gardiner and Lesley La Beaume of
Dana played off the first round of tl1e singles, with Dana victorious.
The next day, tl1e 28th, Lesley La Beaume of Dana met Ethel Allen
of Frost and again Dana carried off the honors.
In the succeeding days Kate W'amel and Alice Faunce of Gardiner,
Lesley La Beaume and Charlotte Maxson of Dana, and Ethel Allen and
Marguerite Hinman battled for honors in the doubles. Kate NVamel and
Alice Faunce, after a most diflicult set, defeated the aspirants from Dana,
Frost having been first defeated.
The Dennee Cup was awarded to Miss La Beaume and the Flanders
Cup to Dana, until another Hall should gain supremacy. To Mr. Flanders
and the judges, Messrs. Hunt, Babcock and Fortin, the club wishes to
extend its sincere appreciation and utmost thanks for their great interest
shown in the work of the Association.

BY BE.NJAMlN CUTTER
ARMONIC ANALYSIS-the resolution of a chord compound
into its parts or elementsg in other words, the defining, the nam-
ing of the chords of a piece of music and of the foreign tones
that invest those chords--is a study that only of late years seems to have
received lHllCh attention. A few Harmony text-books have discussed it
briefly. It would, however, appear that only in one text-book devoted
solely to this subject 'i' has an effort been made to lay down comprehensive
principles, to give fairly copious examples, and to discuss the matter
So far as exactitude is concerned Harmonic Analysis is not a study
comparable with certain other studies, as, for instance, with chemistry,
quantitative or qualitative. It has in it elements of indecision. A cer-
tain combination of sounds may not appeal to all ears in the same way:
a certain chord at a certain place may not be perceived by the sense of
hearing in the same unchangeable and inevitable manner that water, to
take an example, is perceived by the sense of touch. Individual interpre-
tations are often possible of one and the same strain. And in this fact-
no doubt a curious one to the amateur-lies possibly one of the reasons
Why this study, so entertaining and so full of profit, and so extremely Wide
in range when one includes the things of this day, has been comparatively
so little considered.
But, if the opinions of those who have taken a course in Harmonic
Analysis could be gathered, it would be easy to collect a wealth of appro-
bative statements, despite the perplexing points that often come up for
discussion. This subject is not one altogether full of contradictions.
Starting from certain fundamentals, a good teacher is able to proceed
logically, and proper guidance soon makes of the novice a master. And,
as a result, the work of the player is lightened by his new knowledge.
He knows the chords he plays. Instead of reading notes, pure and simple,
his eye, when it beholds the signs, transfers the impression to his con-
sciousness, where a certain name is given ,to this combination, another to
that. It is far easier for him to play when he knows that before him is
the G minor sixth chord than when he perceives merely notes in a
4' Harmonic Amzlysziv. By Benjamin Cutter. Oliver Ditson Co., Boston, 1902.
1911 THE NEUME 93
peculiar arrangement. And it is easier for him to memorize when he
knows about this sixth chordg he has something to hold on to, mentally.
For instance, it aids him in performance to know that at a certain point
he modulates up the chromatic scale by a series of dominant six-five
chords. In other words, having studied this subject his attitude toward
music becomes much like that of the composer, the man who makes
musicg he looks at his art from a viewpoint never before taken, his
grasp of it is a greater oneg he plays with a new surenessg he memorizes
more easily, and with a certitude before unknown.
In preparing this article the writer, although limited in his discussion
to the half dozen examples that he might crowd upon a single page of
music, has presented a number of sharply contrasting difficulties, hinting
at the ambiguity suggested above. He has used the signs of his text-book,
to which the curious may referg' also his own definitions, which follow
the lines of the Harmony text-book by G. W. Chadwick.
No. 1. A case of modulations, pure and simple. See the marking.
But notice this: that there are things here, in this every-day phrase, not
easy to account for. If the Fi? in measure 1 followed the Eb it would be
called an appoggiaturag but this Fi? in the left hand, as a melodic ele-
ment, moves from the F of the right hand, hence it is an unaccented
passing tone. Furthermore, if beginning ,with the root Fone builds up
in thirds, a ninth chord is formed-F A C Eb G-the seventh, Eb,
appearing as an appoggiatura before the third of the tonic harmony.
This is then a possible Vg I. In measure 2 an inversion of this occurs,
and in G minor, the I0 leading over into the F12 through its double sig-
niHcance as the Fug. Measure 4 hitches the ear through three keys, this
would be undeniable even were the tempo an Allegrog for no key could
endure such extreme chromatic dislocations, nor can a cultivated ear
escape the compelling force of such a passageg but in measure 5, the
chord marked F110 is often placed by beginners in G minor, to this we
would say: Consider the function of this sixth chordg it moves into the
Fvqg it is not stable and to resolve rightly it needs its complement: C E
G Bbq hence our reading.
No. 2. The identity of a chord depends on what it does. If this big
Bb chord moved into a Bb cadence, it would be a tonic harmony in Bbg
nothing else. Instead, it moves through a six-four chord of no definite

key to an assertive Vg. What does the Bb chord do? The question is
readily answered: it belongs to a chord succession in the key of this Vg.
And yet this sort of thing-an emphasized and prolonged chromatic chord
-often disturbs the beginner greatly. Let him play the whole progression
and then try the key of Bb and he will learn his error.
No. 3. This excellent s11are for an examination paper looks innocent
enough. It is, however, difficult unless one conceivcs it in its true 116111130
-Presto. Taken slowly, the first measure yields to the ear, as it in all
tempi yields to the eye, G B D and E G B, the second measure, A C
E G and D Fi? A C5 plainly a sequence of seventh chords. Possibly
some listeners might detect this peculiar dissonant progression in an
Allegro moderato. VVe have seen examination papers so marked. But
the word Presto gives the key to the riddleg it defines the problem abso-
lutely. The bass notes G A B C support a very plain structure of prin-
cipal chords-I1 Vg IG 116-and those tones that to the eye would seem to
belong to other chords, as the E in the first measure, become merged into,
melt into, the sweep of the stronger tones composing these more vigorous
fundamental harmonies, and this despite the ZIPPGZIFHIICC, illusive to many,
of sequential construction.
It may be said here that not modern lUllSiC alone is difiicult of analysis.
Bach, Mozart, Hummel, to go no farther, present at times the most deli-
cate problems, a phrase from a sonata of the latter causing a master
harmonist to exclaim lately: "What is it? You can make three things
out of it, easily." In examples of this sort the rate of movement must be
considered and an appeal to the ear may be necessary.
In rega1'd to the progression on Di? E in the bass, measures 5 and 6.
This is no modulation. Let no one think it is. The E chord is a sub-
mediant in G3 it strives on, pushes on, into the cadence. Were it fol-
lowed by other progressions of the same sort, apparent dominant six-fives
and tonics, higher or lower, up or down, then, regardless of their brevity
and of rapid rate, these successions would make on the ear key impressions
as was done, in a slow tempo, in No. 1, measures 4 and 5. The two
examples, 1 and 3, were chosen in part to illustrate these two points and
are sharply typical of thousands of cases. In enrichment of the key
content through chromatic alterations, modern 1nusic is remarkably full.
Seemingly, modulations are producedg but, actually, only the effect of the
key as a whole is heightened by this intensification of the triads other
than the tonic. Wherever one turns one finds this-Wagner, Grieg, Verdi,
Glazounoff, SCl1llITl2ll1I'l, Chopin, Brahms, Elgar-and to impart judgment
96 THE NEUME l9lI
in distinguishing between modulations and altered chords is one of the
teacher's most serious tasks with beginners in Harmonic Analysis.
No. 4. This example we have not marked because more than one
solution is possible and because of the constricted space on the paper.
We can, however, here discuss this ingenious bit of chromatics. Measures
3 and 4 are a sequential transposition of measures 1 and 2, easily understood
if these measures have been un1'iddled. If the two opening measures be
examined closely, three chords may be found-E G Bb Db, A C Eb Gb,
B D F Ab. The notation is purely arbitrary. These tones might
have been notated: E G Db Db, Di? Fi? A C, D FAb Cb, each bass
note being then a root. As there is here no especial key, since it is pos-
sible to turn from the third and end chord of the group in eight different
directions, that is, to eight different keys, by the use of enharmonics and
varied resolutions-almost any interpretation would seem to be satisfactory.
But, if we employ the method in general use and mark according to the
.F 013' OC
composer's notation, we gain this: minor, VII7, b minor, viii,
minor, vuii. If now we say that the middle chord is a passing chord not
requiring 'Any marking, the problem is simplihed. Again, the theory
that the first two measures are in F minor, are in the key of their first and
opening chord, may be maintained with perfect plausibility, the two suc-
ceeding chords being altered harmonies in this keyg each sequential
repetition, either rising or falling, will then take its own key from the
notation of its own first chord, and notation of this first chord is a wholly
arbitrary matter. But however one may name these ambiguous and
shifting diminished seventh chords, whose aesthetic purpose is probably
that of enkindling and exciting the harmonic sense, at all events the second
Db in measure 1 is a suspension-play C in its place as proof-and the
C in measure 2 is an accented passing tone, two chords filling the first
measure and one chord the second.
1Vo. 5. Before the reader attempts to find the reason for our figurings,
or indeed concerns himself with them, let him play this passage several
times, observing it closely. He will find two organ points. He will find
in the left hand a constant figure in quarter notes- Gi? E F33 he will
find that at times all of these tones fit the chords-they consonateg and
that at times some one tone may not fit-it dissonates. This bell figure
of three notes is one of the several factors in the complex whole. The
two organ points form anothe1'. Beginning again he finds in the right
hand pa1't, and then, on to the end, in the left hand part, another factor-
a tone, CG, on the third beat of each measure, a tone that rarely con-
l9Il THE NEUME 97
sonates, for he cannot make it fit. Let him disregard it until he has
established a fair and rational structure, of strong chords. Ile finds,
measure after measure, still another factor, E Gi? B D on the accentsg
plainly, incontestably, the dominant seventh chord in A major. This is
something that rulesg it prevails. It is offset on the third beat by com-
binations that yield on examination either the supertonic seventh or the
subdominant, in some form. The matter is now clear enough. The ever
recurring, intrusive, and doubtful CG, as it comes from and returns to the
tone B, is an embellishmentg nothing moreg it is not a chord tone,
though undoubtedly a complication puzzling enough to the uninitiated.
The return to E major, in which key the complete movement begins and
ends, is made by a powerful and compelling supertonic six-five. The
whole difiiculty is cleared up on eliminating that disturbing C33 or, to
put it in another way, on finding first the principal chords. And this,
we may say here, is the foremost thing in nearly all analyses. Given the
fundament, the harmonic framework, the matter of naming the foreign
tones is a question merely of applying the definitions regarding them.
No. 6. It was our plan to introduce here a longer and more important
extract, but space permitted only this two measure phrase. Of itself
simple enough, the student who cares to investigate will find on consult-
ing the first act of Tristan and Isolde that remarkable use has been made
of this Leilmotf That its use is so excessive as to possibly warrant the
epithet "stencil music," does not concern the student. Ile will find
enough to learn in following out its transformations.
We have reached the end of our examples. We have only opened a
way into our subject. The writer hopes that some who read these lines,
and chance to hear of this branch of musical knowledge for the first time,
may be incited to go farther. We can assure them that what they learn,
partaking as it does of the special knowledge of the composer, will not
be without a demonstrable value in their musical experiences.
98 THE NEUME 1911
The Correlation of Music with General Studies
BY ELIZABETH C. NORTHUP, A.lVl.
ATURE is often prodigal of her gifts and bestows varied talents
upon her children. When such a bestowal is made in families
that cherish university traditions or aspirations, a serious problem
is likely to arise as to the course of study that will most completely meet
the needs of a talented son or daughter. If the gift is a musical one, its
possessor is often compelled to raise the query: "Shall I devote myself to
music or shall I take a college course?" Theoretically the two lines of
study should not be mutually exclusive. Practically, under present edu-
cational conditions, one must be taken and the other left, save in excep-
tional instances, and on the decision hangs the fate of the precious talent
that nature has bestowed.
The reasons for the attitude of our colleges toward music are not far to
seek. Our older institutions of learning were founded upon Puritan ideals
and these, while wholly admirable in many respects, tended decidedly to
the exclusion of the arts. Our technical schools, it is hardly necessary to
point out, have tended in the same direction. Moreover, until within a
generation or two, music in this country has been pursued chiefly as an
accomplishment and as such it has been looked upon by educators as
unworthy of serious consideration. The thoroughly trained musician has
also held himself somewhat proudly aloof, knowing only too well the dis-
cipline necessary to the mastery of his art, and the ignorance of even the
alphabet of music on the part of most of those who have condemned it as
superficial. Hence musician and educator have eyed each other askance,
and between the two there has been a great gulf fixed.
During the last decade, however, there has been gradually effected a
change of front on the part of the colleges. The iniiuences that have
brought this about make an interesting chapter in the history of the devel-
opment of music in the United States. Chief among them has been the
appearance of musicians who to the cultivation of their special gift have
added a liberal education in other lines, although possibly outside acad-
emic grooves. Musicians of this calibre have been a force to be reckoned
with,'ancl they have not only commanded for music the recognition that is
its due, but they have also conveyed to educators the more subtle but no
less certain implication that a culture without music as one of its elements
fails to that extent of being liberal.
l9ll THE NEUME 99
The colleges have necessarily felt the effect of the stir and develop-
ment in musical matters and have realized to some extent the need of
creating and sustaining an artistic atmosphere within their walls. Begin-
ning, as was to be expected, with the historical approach to the subject,
there have followed courses in the scientific aspects of the art, and in
some instances theoretical studies and, more rarely, technical work, have
been added. In some of the colleges these courses have been given an
honorable place in the curriculum and allowed to count for a degree.
Whether a complete correlation with the other studies of the curricu-
lum has yet been effected is a question on which the musical educator
might still Find occasion for debate. It may be well, therefore, to con-
sider the claims of music to full membership in the academic family.
The most obvious connection seems to be that between music and poetry,
yet curiously enough this appears to have been all but lost sight of. An
interesting illustration of this may be cited in passing. The emphasis
laid upon college English requirements has resulted in a sheaf of text-
books designed to help pupils to appreciate, in the largest sense of the
term, the glories of our literary inheritance. In treating poetry, however,
the authors have either passed over its connection with music, or at best
have touched upon it warily, as if conscious of being on unfamiliar
ground. Yet could author and reader know as much of the laws of music
as of the laws of rhetoric, how each subject might be made to enhance the
other, to the attainment of far wider vision. This would be a true appli-
cation of the comparative method, a true correlation. We are fallen upon
barren days in poetry. Perhaps it needs only a college generation or two
of such teaching to produce another "mighty-mouthed inventor of harmo-
nies" like Milton, who probably would not to-day be esteemed England's
greatest artist "in the collocation of words" had it not been for his mastery
Indeed it seems to be a not untenable proposition that music can at
some point meet the test of most if not all of the educational shibboleths
of the present day. Great stress is now laid upon the scientific method in
education. Side by side with this, as a necessary consequence of the law
of action and reaction, is the claim that the scientific method, with its
p1'eoccupation with purely intellectual training, is being over-emphasized,
and that the true secret of education is the healthy cultivation of the
emotions. Without discussing the psychological bearing of these claims,
it is sufhcient to concede that ce1'tain lines of study make their appeal
primarily to the intellect and others to the emotions. It has been assumed
loo THE NEUME l9II
in the past that music-the most direct in its emotional appeal of all the
arts-was exclusively a matter of feeling, whereas a more accurate con-
tention would be that it appeals to both intellect and emotions with nearly
equal force, and is amenable to study by the strictest scientific method.
The emotional heights and depths of a Beethoven symphony not only
make an appreciative listener kindle and thrill, but its structure also puts
his mental processes to a severe test. If we were to add the giant intellect
necessary to produce such a marvelous creation, the argument would be
Another marked tendency in the educational life ofito-day is in the
direction of the practical and utilita1'ian. Here music has a strong
claim, for an appeal to experience shows most favorable conditions at the
present time for the trained, all-round musician to secure a competence.
If the humanitarian spirit that has swept with such beneficent effect over
our modern collegiate life, be taken into account, music must certainly be
included in its scope, for it is the art of all others that may be used to
benefit the neighbor, and for its complete consummation it pre-supposes
The culture ideal is the most pervasive, and the one whi'ch, amid the
flux of varying tendencies, will, it is to be hoped, survive them all.
Culture studies are those that refine and elevate the student, and, by
helping him to the personal realization of his highest possibilities,
prepare him for a life-work. Music takes high rank as a culture study,
not only for the student with special gifts but for the one of average
capacity. Perhaps the strongest claim of all could be made for music as
a personal resource, as a bringer of joy into the life.
Having glanced at the claims of music to full recognition in our
colleges, it now 1'emains to consider its adjustment at a special point, and
this brings the discussion back to the student in the preparatory school,
upon whom, or upon whose parents or guardians, rests the burden of
choosing the next step to be taken. The concessions that have already
been made by the colleges have to a certain extent helped the musical
student who desires a college course, but they have not quite reached the
root of the difficulty. This difliculty is found in the entrance requirements
of the colleges. Until credit shall be allowed at this point not only for
theoretical studies, as at Harvard, but for applied music as well, by
which is meant the study of instrument or voice, the pupil is hardly better
off, so far as his college course is concerned, than he was before music
was allowed in the curriculum.
l9ll THE NEUME l0l
Brief allusion has been made to the work of the schools of music.
The quality and comprehensiveness of this work, and its constant raising
of standards, have been effected so quietly that the outside world has
hardly been aware of what has been taking place. The musical student,
however, is entirely cognizant of this, and he Ends himself confronted
with the old problem under a somewhat altered aspect: namely, that of
trying to keep both his musical and his college preparatory work up to
the requirements of two schools, both of which have inexorably raised
their standards. This double demand is indeed so exacting that only an
exceptionally well poised student can hope to meet it. Yet in this very
rigor on the part of both schools lies the hope of solving the problem and
bringing about an adjustment, for it gives a platform of mutual respect
from which to treat on equal terms.
Experience has shown the double necessity of developing the ntusical
gifts and providing for general education at the same time, and during
the period, too, when the pupil is most impressible and can most easily
acquire technical skill. It has often happened that musical pupils have
fallen short of doing their best work in spite of good gifts, because of
their lack of that wider culture, without which, whether it be gained in
a college or in the larger school of life, there can be no adequate
comprehension of artistic values.
When a music student awakes at the eleventh hour to a sense of his
deficiencies in other lines, it is not easy to make good the lack. It can
be done in a measure, however, although at a disadvantage. But his case
is not nearly so hopeless as is that of the college student who has dropped
music for collegiate work and who, although he may have availed himself
of the general musical courses offered in some of the colleges, has been
unable to continue his work in applied music. The loss in technical
efliciency during these important years is irreparable. For music, unlike
other professional studies, cannot be relegated to the completion of the
college course with any hope of a successful issue. It must be studied
from youth up, with no cessation, and with due adjustment to the general
It is one of the imperative demands of to-day that there shall be a
greater saving of time in our educational courses. To bring this about
the college preparatory work is being pushed farther and farther back into
the secondary schools and the First year of professional training is being
crowded into the final year of the collegiate course. The same demand is
felt by the schools of music, and here it has been found that the most
loz THE NEUME l9lI
important factor, outside of absolute genius, in reducing the time element,
is the mental development of the student. To this end the adjustment of
musical courses as an integral part of the higher education is not only
desirable but imperative.
The point at which there is the greatest need of such an adjustment
at present is at the college entrance requirements. If in the lists as now
arranged certain musical studies shall be substituted, for both required
and optional work, and full credit allowed, the problem under considera-
tion will have approached solution. That the standards of requirement
could easily be met in a musical school whose instruction in' elementary
theoretical and applied music courses is on quite as high a level as that in
elementary science and literature in the college preparatory schools, is
unquestionable. Equally incontestable is the claim that such studies as
harmony, solfeggio, and a properly regulated course in applied music are
from the standpoint of mental discipline fully entitled to a place in a well
developed scheme of college entrance requirements. It remains simply
for the colleges to take the step for which the time 'seems to be ripe, and
accord recognition to the musical work of well qualified students. Such
action will relieve the student at a point at which there is now undue
pressure and tension, and give him an opportunity to make good use of
the elective courses now offered in the colleges.
The path of our educational endeavors is strewn with blunders
because of failure to adjust various lines of study in their proper rela-
tions, and many have suffered from these blunders,-for which they were
in no wise responsible. To some it has been possible partially to make
good the loss in later life. To others the loss has been absolute,-the
cause of a life-long regret, made all the keener because of a haunting
,sense that it might have been avoided if only someone had had the wisdom
to plan aright. The world is not blessed with so many good gifts, or so
many children of genius, that we can afford to run the risk of losing
either by remediable defects in our educational system.

John l-lopkins's Surrender
BY ELIZABETH l. SAMUEL. A.B.
190 090 090
"It's of no use, Maria, I won't do it, and that's the end of it."
"I didn't say anything, John," responded his wife, who had been
sitting in silence by his side for the last half hour, as old Nancy, the
horse, jogged slowly along.
"But I tell you, Maria, it's of no sort of use," said John Hopkins
again, and he leaned forward to strike Nancy with his worn-out whip.
Maria Hopkins said no more, neither did John, until they came in
sight of the' story-and-a-half cottage that had meant home to them for
twenty years, then he said, "Don't you say one word to Ruth, for it's of
no sort of use."
Maria Hopkins was a small, thin woman. She had been pretty once,
and there was still a suggestion of her former prettiness in her gentle
brown eyes and the chestnut-red ti11t of her hair. She was always plainly
dressed. The one brown dress, that she had worn for ten years, was care-
fully kept, and she never appeared in public in any other garb. Her
shawl was one that had done duty for her mother before her, and her
bonnet had been dyed and pressed several times. You would not have
believed, had you seen her, that Maria Hopkins was philosophical, or
that she was ambitious.
John Hopkins was entirely ignorant that his wife was a philosopher,
but he had a suspicion of her ambition. He had not lived with her twenty
years without learning that, though she was very quiet and gentle, she
sometimes clung to her opinions: she had not lived with him twenty years
without learning that the only thing for her to do with her opinions was
silently to cling to them, and wait. Maria's waiting powers were great.
John had a suspicion of that, toog and that was the reason that he had
made these seemingly irrelevant remarks.
Years ago, when Maria was young, she had sung in the choir, and
John had thought that she had a beautiful voice. The people in the little
church said that she really had a wonderful voice, and once her father,
who was a well-to-do farmer, had been so moved by the praise of his
daughter's voice that he had bought her a melodeon. Such a small
affair! Yet it marked an event in Maria's history.
So Maria had practised and sung, and, by and by, John who really
loved her, and who praised her voice, though he had not the slightest

conception of what music meant to her, took her and her melodeon to his
home after his mother's death. There we1'e two things in the world that
Maria Hopkins really loved: one was her daughter Ruth and the other
was hcr melodeon, and she loved them with all her heart. The melodeon
had been hers before Ruth cameg and the thing in her that made her love
her melodeon made her love Ruth. She loved her husband, too, but he
had not in him the quality that made it possible for her to love him as she
did Ruth and the melodeon.
Ruth had been the light of the little house for seventeen years. The
furnishings of the house were very simple, there was little besides Ruth
and the melodeong but it was like living in sunshine to live with Ruth,
and none of them thought about furniture. Then, too, Ruth could singg
Maria had taught her all that she knew, and Ruth had a sort of musical
instinct that guided her until she sang in the choir, as her mother had
done long years before.
There was something in Ruth's voice that moved peopleg and once,
when a cousin of Maria's came from the city to visit her, she had said
that by and by they must send Ruth away to study. Ma1'ia had spoken to
John about it, and had asked if he did not think that, now that the farm
was doing so well, they might begin to plan about sending Ruth away to
study. john had said that he could not see any sense in wasting money
on musicg and, when Maria told him that Cousin Jane said Ruth had a
fortune in her voice, John answered, "It's of no use, Maria, and that's
the end of it."
Three years later Maria had spoken to John again. She had dared
to hope that he would change his mind about Ruth. John was rarely
harsh in speaking to his wife, but this time he answered, "It's no use,
Maria, I don't believe in it, and I won't do it, and that's the end of it."
Maria said not another word.
Ruth sang because she loved to sing, and because others seemed to
enjoy it. She was so unconscious of her gift that she took the praise
that came to her as a matter of course. She was made sog it was no
special credit to her. Maria had recognized all this in her daughter, and
had never spoken to Ruth of her desire to send her away. She felt that
to suggest to Ruth any possibilities would hinder rather than help herg
while her loyalty to her husband was such that she did not wish Ruth to
feel that her father was not 1'eady to do anything in his power for his
child. So Maria had waited patiently for these three y6Zl1'S. She had
no apparent ground for hope, but she had faith that sometime the desire
1911 THE NEUME los
of her heart would come in answer to her prayers, and she had waited so
long that she had developed her waiting powers to a remarkable extent.
On the dull afternoon, when old Nancy faithfully jogging along had
been surprised by the sudden stroke of her master's whip, John and
Maria had been to church. Ruth was rarely absent from the choir, but
she was not well, and Maria had insisted that she stay at home. The
saintly old minister that had married John and Maria and had baptized
Ruth, had gone to his reward one beautiful day in Juneg and, in his
place, had come a wide-awake young minister with an energetic young
wife. The change had been so great that the older members of the
church could hardly adjust themselves to it. John Hopkins, though he
cherished a secret admiration for the young man who was so cordial in his
own whole-hearted fashion, would not admit that he liked the changeg
while Maria wondered if some help might not come to Ruth through
these new friends. The minister and his wife both sangg neither of them
had a remarkable voiceybut they sang, as they did everything else, with
great earnestness, and there were not a few in that small congregation
that had been helped and strengthened by the service of song. To-day a
new factor in the problem had appeared. There had been a stranger in
the pulpit, and he had talked to the people about singing, as a part of
What he said about music was a revelation to those who heard him,
for they had thought of it only as a pleasant part of the service. But for
a man to say that the power of a song might be equal to that of the min-
ister's preaching, could that be true-could it be even right for him to
On the way home Maria was thinking about the talk of the afternoon,
and trying to decide whether or not it was best that Ruth had not heard
the talk. She thought that she was sorry, that it 'was unfortunate, but
her experimental philosophy had taught her that one could not decide a
question of that kind so soong and her faith led her to believe that good
might come even of seeming mistakes. John Hopkins was thinking,
too, and he was not at peace with himself, some things the man had said
came home to him. He supposed that Maria was wondering how she
could induce him to send Ruth away, and irritated by her silence, he had
made these seemingly irrelevant remarks. Maria had answered him
quietlyg but there was a throb of joy in her heart, when he burst out
with this determined speech. It gave her courage. She knew John
Hopkins well enough to know that now his mind was not wholly at ease
los THE NEUME l9ll
about Ruth. All her magnanimity came to the front, and she carefully
aided him in his endeavors not to arouse any special interest in Ruth
about the talk that they had listened to. So Ruth heard only that a
stranger had preached about music, and that they had enjoyed hearing
him, and then Maria told her some news that she had heard from the
But as the days passed, John Hopkins was by no means a happy man.
Somehow what the stranger had said haunted him. A large portion of
the conscience of his Puritan ancestors had come down to him. He could
run contrary to what he considered a whim of Maria'sg but if it were
really true, what the man .said that music was a gift, that it might do
people almost as much good as preaching, if it were used in God's ser-
vice,-if that were true-
There had been another child in John Hopkins's home, a beautiful
baby boy, who had stayed with them a little while, and then had gone
away, leaving to them a new and strange possession, a tiny mound in the
churchyard. No one knew how dear to John Hopkins the child had
been. He had loved him more than anyone suspected, and he had
cherished a desire that the boy might grow up to be a minister. John's
mother had told him about one of. her brothers that had been a preacher
of promise, but had died in the Hush of his youthg and this uncle had
been to Iohn an ideal. his hero, and he had somehow always missed him,
whom he had never seen. This was strange but true, and because it was
so strange and so true, John had never talked about it to anyone, but
when the baby came he was Hlled with an intense desire that this child
might grow up to be what his uncle for whom he was named had been.
But the dream was over when he laid the baby in his grave.
, All this had come back to him that gray Sunday afternoon, and ever
since he had been wondering if he ought to do for Ruth what he had
planned to do for Philip. If his grasp upon the things of the world had
not tightened, and his desire to add to his savings had not increased with
his years, John Hopkins might have capitulated at this point, but it is
hard for a middle-aged man to yield even to his convictions, the process
takes time. John had lived in comparative ease for so long that he
resented this upheaval of his nature. He tried to persuade himself that
he could not afford to send Ruth away to school. He was not a rich man,
all that he had saved had come slowly, and he was growing old, and had
no son to depend upon. He would drop the whole matter. Why should
he think that that one man was right, and all his established notions
wrong, and was it, after all, anything more than pride on Maria's part?
I9ll THE NEUME IO7
It seemed to Maria that her husband was in an obstinate mood. She
hardly knew what to make of him. But the truth is, that John was waked
up, and when a man awakes at fifty the outward evidence of the awaken-
ing is as likely to be called obstinacy as anything else. But circumstances
conspired against John Hopkins. One day a man came to him and asked
if he would lend him some money. The man was a good enough sort of
a fellow, but he had not the faculty of saving money, so people said.
John was a prudent man, and his judgment led him to say, "No," but
he thought he would see if the man were really in need: so he asked him
some questions about his family.
After a little, the man said: "Well, you see, the fact is I'm thinking
of sending my daughter away to a music school. The minister says she
has a good voice, and he thinks it'l1 pay to send her even if I have to
borrow the money."
John Hopkins drew himself slowly up to his full height. He looked
at the man a moment, then he said: "I have no money to lend you."
He might have said more, but for his astonishment.
That man's daughter-she could not begin to sing like Ruth! That
man's daughter! John would not even call him by name. The accum-
ulated pride of his whole life seemed to burst out in his heart. He would
see, he said to himself, but in the midst of this torrent of pride he
thought of Maria. How could he tell Maria? Was he never to have any
No one can say to what unworthy act obstinate pride may drive a
man, but it drove John Hopkins to this. He went to see the minister.
He asked about the school that the stranger had spoken of, then he said:
"You come up to tea and talk it over with my wife, but don't mention it
to anybody else."
The minister and his wife started for John I'Iopkins's, but on the
way the horse tumbled and broke a thill, and it was late before they
reached the little house. They were at the tea table when the minister
said: "Mr, Hopkins, have you decided about sending Ruth away to
Maria was pouring tea, she thought she had learned self-possession,
but she never could decide what would have happened had it not been
for that tea-pot. As it was, she asked how much sugar she should put in
the minister's tea. Then she poured out another cup, and measured the
sugar for the minister's wife, and, by the time that all the tea was
poured, the pride of her ancestors welled up in Maria's heart, and she
los THE NEUME l9ll
was a match for her husband, but, for the first time in her life, she won-
dered if she really loved him.
Ruth went to school. The pride that had led John Hopkins to send
her kept her there, until she was ready to receive her diploma. Maria
Hopkins lived quietly on. Obstinate pride is not a desirable quality in a
husband, but Maria Hopkins could bear it, if any woman could.
Commencement was coming, and Ruth was to sing. They must
come to hear her, so Ruth wroteg and they went.
The great church was filled with people. The exercises began.
J'ohn's eyes wandered over the beautiful church. He cared very little for
the music, and so fell to thinking what if Philip had lived, would he
have preached in a church like that? He was roused from his reverie by
Ruth's strong, sweet voice, as she began to sing a solo from Handel's
4'Messiah." John noticed that the audience grew very still. Ruth sang
on. Where was he, what did it mean? John Hopkins rubbed his eyes.
Surely that was Ruthg but the dead baby's face-what did it all mean?
Then John Hopkins's soul conquered John Hopkins. He saw the
pride of his own heart, and all his unkindncss to Maria and to Ruth: he
came to himself. And, when he did, he realized that it was his daughter
Ruth's voice that had brought him to the truth concerning himself.
What might not her voice do for others? The tears ran down his cheeks,
though he did not know it. The music ceased. He turned to Maria, he
would tell her how sorry he was. "Maria," he begang but Maria, tak-
ing his hand, said gently, "Yes, John, here comes Ruth."
In youth I longed to play a tragic part,
To show upon the stage life's glooms and fears,
Or else portray life's sorrows with such art
That hearts would ache and eyes o'erflow with tears.
But now such tragedies in life I see,
That with the jester's role would I beguile,
Content if, by my trivial mimicry,
I bring to some sad face a Heeting smile.
I9lI THE NEUME 109
T is a dreary November day. The wind howls around the corners,
and wails among the leailess trees. Low-hanging gray clouds drive
across the dark sky, while the fields, shorn of their summer glory, lie
yellow and soddcn beneath the drizzle. At the little railway station all
is activity and bustle, for it is train time. Baggagemen are wheeling
the groaning trucks into place, cabs and drays are driving up, men are
shouting, and people are hurrying.
Amid all the commotion an old man stands quietly beside a pillar.
The years have left their marks upon face, hair, and beard, but his figure
is erect, his shoulders are broad, and his cheek glows with health.
Strength and vigor are his, in spite of the passing of threcscore years.
Ilis gaze rests absently upon the distant hills. Wrapped in thought, he
is unconscious of the activity around him.
Now the Hrst distant note of the whistle is heard, and there is a
rush from the waiting room. Nearer and nearer comes the train, till,
roaring and panting, it sweeps into the station. The 'old man watches
the passengers as they descend. A young woman, plump and dark-haired,
brown-eyed and rosy-cheeked, emerges from the car, and as she steps
down, looks eagerly toward the old man. Isle sees her, but gives no
sign. She comes toward him with beseeching eyes, and outstretched
hands. He searchingly looks at herg his manner is cold, and his lips
move but a curt greeting. The girl's face falls, her eyes fill. The
smile, the eager, beseeching look, fade into dismay and disappointment.
The wind wails among the trees, and the rain falls dismally.
- . - . n .
It is spring. The woods and fields are green, the warm breeze is
laden with the fragrance of Howersg radiant white clouds glow in the
intense blueg the birds twitter joyously, while the sunshine gilds everything
with its glory.
Again, amid the hurry and bustle of the station the old man awaits
the arrival of the train. But now he wears an air of suppressed impa-
tience. He paces up and down the platform, greeting, here and there an
acquaintance, or pausing to speak with a friend. Now a wreath of
smoke is seen in the distance, the whistle is heard. Nearer and nearer,
no THE NEUME 1911
louder and louder, sounds the train, until, with roar of ponderous wheels,
and clang of bells, it rolls into the station. '
The old man goes close to the step. Soon comes she of the rosy
cheeks and dark hair, her eyes beaming. The man steps forward, his
arms outstretched, his eyes full of yearning. With heartfelt reproach he
bends tenderly over her, while her face glows with joy and thankfulness.
For there has dawned anew day, a clearer light, and life is richer for
the night outlived. In the joy of reunion there abides peace and hope
in their minds, and humility and thankfulness in their hearts. The trees
toss their green boughs in the breeze, the birds burst into song afresh
and on all rests the glorious golden sunshine. G. N.
He waited on the sandy shore,
And boasted what he'd do
On that great day he hoped for, when
His ship should come in view.
At length he more impatient grewg
He tired of waiting there,
And wandered careless up the sand,
Where all seemed far more fair.
But while he went the ship sailed by,
It passed him on the shore.
"You were not ready," cried the mate,-
"We shall return no more."
L. I.. B.
There grew a lovely lily once,
More pure than all the rest,
Who kept a secret, sweet and glad,
Deep hidden in her breast.
And when alone bright dreams shc'd dream,
A lovely song she'd singg
All joy unto her life there came
From thoughts of this one thing.
But once she sang it to her matesg
It seemed sweet, as before-
Yet, when alone, she searched her heart,
Alas! 'twas there no more!
L. L. n.
l-lear the drip, drip, dripping of the rain!
Sit within, and listen, all alone!
Hear the wind's low sobbing o'er the plain!
Hark !-was that the wind, or was't a human moan?
See that dim, wet branch bend low its head!
Watch, and know thou art in all the place
The only human thing that is not dead!
Look!-was that a branch, or was't a human face?
Ah! who am I that with the enchanting splendor
Which nature spreads with lavish hand for me,
Whose neither word nor Herculean labor
Could cause the simplest one of them to be,-
The crystal lake, a massive rippling wonder,
A counterfeited ocean at my feet,
The stately pines and birchcs of the forest,
The perfume of the wood so rare and sweet,
The singing birds that wake me every morning,
The whir of locusts from the distant fields, '
The tinkle of each cowbell in the meadow,
And all the wondrous charm that nature yields,
The living softness of the shades of evening,
That with its many myriad insect band,
In sweet nocturnal symphonies of heaven,
Unhindered, woo my spirit to yon land.
Yet pardon if in this I seem to murmur
And be 'mid such surroundings so depressed,
When peaceful, quiet calm should thus attend me
And steal away all thoughts of sad unrest.
But by my side no loving, true companion,
No soft and tender hand I hold in mine,
No hazel eyes that brightly play and sparkle
Beneath the wayward locks that golden shine.
But if perchance some watchful, kindly planet,
Would, by the help of its fantastic charm,
Bring her to me, my lovely absent maiden,
We'd tread in paths Elysian arm in arm.
I would to-night I were a wind,
A gentle little summer wind
That blows in soft and soothing zephyrs,
A happy boon to all mankind.
I'd seek a certain pleasant dale,
A shady, sweet, sequestered vale,
Beside a shallow ilowing river
That sparkles in the moonbeams pale.
I'd waft me oler its verdant lea,
A tideless, waving, grassy sea,
To where, amid a bed of clover,
She idly waits and dreams of me.
In wild fantastic glee I'd dare
Caress her cheeks and wave her hair,
And soften her aerial visions
With kisses on her forehead bare.
Far, far away,
My thoughts are ever stealing,
To where my love
Of me is ever dreaming.
No crystal dew
Falls from her eyes with crying,
For well she knows
For her alone I'm pining.
Yet lonely sits
Where oft of yore together
We whiled away
So many hours of pleasure.
But courage, love,
No night howe'er enduring
But soon was cleft
NVith the bright rays of dawning.
Then when at last
Our separation over,
lIeaven"s blessing sweet
Will round about us hover.
Night and Man
The glorious splendor of a day that's done
Ilad paused a moment ere it turned to night
To scatter 'round its beams of rare delight,
And with one longing look at last had gone.
The sable gray to inky black now turns,
And in its iron grasp the earth doth hold
Till morning paints the east in brightest gold
And nature from her rest again returns.
This is the picture of thy life, O man,
"With trailing clouds of glory art thou born,"
Thy sable gray young manhood's brow adorns,
And inky blackness thickeus with lifc's span.
Yet to thc end if faithful thou wilt be,
A wondrous crown shall wear through all eternity.
Therc's a tender spirit hovering
Like the gentle dew at evening,
Or a filmy cloudlet lowering
O'er my raptured breast.
And about me casts a covering,
Which into my inner being
Like a soothing balm is stealing,
Wooing me to rcst.
While upon its love I'm dwelling,
Warm and full my heart is swelling,
From its crimson tide distilling
Gems exceeding rare.
These I'll take and in a twinkling
Shape into a necklace dazzling,
In a circlet bright and sparkling,
For my darling fair.
Round her neck as soft as dawning,
Will they rest from night till morning,
With its rising and its falling
Live in paradise.
Then thcy'lI tell the heart that"s beating,
Of the love for her I'm keeping,
And they'll win, by their entreating,
Me a paradise.
The Rose and the Violet
I chanced, while on lifc's rugged way,
Upon a garden fairg
Flowers and blooms of every hue
In beauty reigned there.
I wandered through its perfumed paths,
A dew bejeweled maze,
Each step a new, more beauteous flower
Was opened to my gaze.
And here in grand and regal pomp,
Stood a massive rose,
Resplendent on her glorious throne,
A queen in her repose.
Amazed, I stood transfixed withal,
In blissful ecstasy,
While love's divine consuming tire
Crept slowly over me.
The loving look she then returned,
I grasped the chance and cried,
"Thou goddess fair with form divine
And wilt thou be my bride?"
I plucked the Hower in jealous haste
My bosom to adorn.
One moment's bliss, then gaspcdin pain
It had a hidden thorn.
In haste I left the garden that
I once had thought soqgrand,
With bleeding heart and aching mind,
A wanderer in the land.
With lagging step and fevered brow,
Scourged by ailiiction's rod,
At last my feet still faint and sad,
A gentle meadow trod.
Beneath a sheltering trce I sank,
Nor cared what now befell,
Though pillowed was my head upon
The grass of the sweet dell.
Awhile I lay exhausted thus,
When softly on my ear
Fell words of tender sympathy,
A message of good cheer.
I raised my head to see whence came
These words of sweet relief,
But modestly the giver had
Withdrawn behind a leaf.
The leaf removed, there stood revealed,
With grief that was sincere,
A shy retiring violet face g
That held a dewy tear.
No empty pomp of royal court
Or princely throne was there.
No hidden thorn to hurt and wound
Or heart's soft strings to tear.
A maiden pure as nature formed,
Unshackled by the things
That harden hearts and make the change
That cultivation brings.
Again I plucked the bloom in haste
My bosom to adorn,
Its lone sad tear fell to the earth,
And then in both was born
A mutual love so true and deep
That angels, looking down,
Desired to see and bless the bond
That thus had made ns one.
Ah yes, 'tis not in look or form
Alone where bliss residesg
'Tis honest heart and soul sincere
Where mutual love abides.
Success cannot approach defeat
When sympathy makes failure sweet.
Such joy comes not from laurels wearing,
As comes from some one's really caring!
On grassy plot or shaded bank
A little Rower creeps,
Its roots in lilliputian grasp
In mother earth it keeps.
At hide and seek amid the grass
Its silvery tendrils play,
And here and there a set of leaves
Peeps out to see the day.
A fairy eye now opens up
With gentle, loving gaze,
And sweetly does to nature lift
Its modest head in praise.
Yes, hail to thee, thou blossom fair,
What though demure thy size,
Thy loyal tribute brightly shines
In thy Crcator's eyes.

How many there are that possibly have never really listened to a
recital, but who, perhaps even unconsciously, sit in judgment, using as a
standard their own narrow ideas and preconceived notions, assuming at
the start a defensive rather than a receptive position.
First let us define the meaning and object of listening, in order to
have at least a common starting point. Webster describes it as attending
closely with the view of assimilationg that is, a mental perception.
It is not the purpose of this article to enter into psychological pro-
cesses, but merely to call attention to a function the abuse of which
deprives us of many moments of artistic enjoyment, even though they
sometimes seem to bein a crude setting. From the definition, it will
readily be seen that there must be a receptive condition on the part of
the listener, and this is where the most common mistake occurs.
What is the object of listening? Is it a limited idea of measuring to
an already completed and finished value? By no means. The object of
listening is to convey to the brain the ideas and viewpoint of the per-
former, in order that another's outlook and possibly entirely new line of
thought may lead the mind to a broader and more comprehensive under-
Perhaps the student is the most consistent offender, and it is not at
all strange that this should be the case, for it is while a student that ideas
come fast, opinions and prejudices form quickly and our attention is so
engrossed in the operation that we forget the real object of research. It
is like trying to view a grand mountain from the midst of the tall forest
that covers its sides, when the real view can only be seen from the broad,
distant plain. Let us the1'efore get out of the forest of biased opinions
and hasty condemnation to the broader plain of honest search for sincerity
in both composition and performer, which alone measures the value of

11s THE NEUME 1911
In music a certain confidence in self is essential :-
Of the pupils who fail to make a good showing in school or in pub-
lic, the greater number are introspective and lacking in aggression rather
than over conceited or egotistical.
In class room, in recitals, during examinations, everywhere there is
a lack of faith in self.
- It is not crime to make a mistake, to strike a wrong note, or to blur
a scale. Of course, we aspire to perfect results, but if something goes
wrong, let it go. Don't worry about it. Profit by it and make up for it
Believe in yourself, have courage, and-pass it on.
How few people there are in the world who really appreciate good
music! The percentage of musicians is very small, and even among these
there are many who are studying only to be able to dash off a little rag-
time for their own amusement and that of their friends. The question
of educating the public to enjoy the best in music has long puzzled the
brains of musical educators, and they have already done much toward the
solving of that problem. They have instituted series of orchestral con-
certs. musical lecture courses, etc. Right here in Boston, Louis C. Elson
is doing a great deal toward the furtherance of this cause by his course
of City Lectures. However, there remains much to be done, and many
earnest workers are needed.
We, as graduates of the New England Conservatory of Music, are
going forth with high hopes and ambitions for our musical careers. We
will go into many parts of the country, and can make our influence felt in
a great many ways, whether they be great or small. Let it be one of our
highest and best aspirations to help, as much as lies within our power,
the advancement of the cause of making good music appreciated and
enjoyed by the general public.
The Normal Department in this school is invaluable. Many of us
intend to make teaching a profession, and we obtain through the Normal
the best possible apprenticeship. We should appreciate this, and instead
of being negligent or indifferent we should be enthusiastic and eager to
seize upon every point that will be of future help.
The responsibility of a teacher's position should be sufficient safe-
guard against carelessness in instruction. We all know how much more
l9ll THE NEUME 119
easily pupils properly and carefully taught from the beginning advance
along the diflicult highway of musicianshipg and how hard it is for a
good teacher to undo the harm done by a poor one. If we only realized
that by faulty teaching we may be instilling into the mind of a youthful
pupil bad habits, of which it may take him years to be rid, we would
surely put the very best of ourselves into our teaching and exert every
faculty for the good of our pupils.
It is negligence more often than ignorance, with us, which is the
cause of unsuccessful teaching. So let us realize that carelessness and
indifference are not negative qualities, with influence neither for good
nor evil, but positive forces for harm in their effect upon our pupils.
And let us do our own most thorough best to substitute for these char-
acteristics the fine enthusiasm and love of detail which are indispensable
to the successful teacher.
Just what the Modern Orchest1'a is growing to be is hard to say.
Why have such large orchestras and such terribly complex scores, such as
Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and Gustave Mahler's last Symphony.
The people are not advancing as fast as the orchestra' is growing,--
they are not yet appreciative of the fine effects of these orchestrations.
Why use such a complicated mass when there are inexhaustible but
simpler effects, and just as powerful, too? For instance, the diminuendo
of drum beats in the Scherzo of Beethoven's last Symphony is extremely
simple but powerful enough in effect to make one's heart almost stop.
An examination of the score of "Zarathustra" shows twenty-three
melodies used simultaneously. 4 Such a complicated mass is not only
harsh but unintelligible.
With the improvements of the different instruments, especially the
wind choirs, has come an advance in technique, but fine as this is, it has
been overtaxed by some w1'iters, witness Strauss, Mahler and Max Reger.
The effects are those of a mass rather than a subtle nature. The material
used in these days is responsible for the elaborate orchestrations. The
material of Saint Saens is such that his effects are delicate but powerful,
too. For this reason his opera, Samson and Delilah, is one of the finest
masterpieces of opera in existence. I might fill page after page telling
of the beauty of this score.
The maintenance of a large orchestra requires large halls and audi-
ences, and consequently much of the delicate is lost. So why not the
smaller orchestra in a smaller hall, heard to a better advantage and sub-
sequcntly purer music?
:zo THE NEUME l9Il
Most of those who go out from the New England Conservatory, take
up positions in small communities, or return to their home towns to teach.
The majority continue to build on foundations already laidg some will
be called upon to lay the foundationsg few will begin their professional
labors in musical centers where already the cause of music is advanced.
The place of the musician in the small community, especially that of the
teacher, is an important one. Often the tastes of its public and the qual-
ities of its musical activities can be largely influenced by the ideals and
standards of the teacher.
During our days of study here we have been surrounded by musical
influences of superior excellence. We have come into contact with the
highest standards in both student and professional life. Now it is to be
in our own power similarly to influence others. Most of us, doubtless,
can look back upon early days of study in our home towns, or at boarding
school. We remember how through those early teachers came our first
knowledge of the musical world, and how from them, perhaps, we gained
ideals and caught inspiration. NVhatever this influence was, its existence
cannot be denied.
These are to be our responsibilities. Whether we hold an important
position, or remain quietly at home, we have it in our power, by reason
of the prestige which is given by study in one of the best schools in the
country, to influence in some degree the musical life about us.
For each there is important work to do. It behooves us to keep con-
stantly before us the high standards to which we have been trained during
our student days. This will not always be easy. There will be many
discouragements. We may be called upon at times to lay aside the plans
which seem to us made to meet real needs. We are sure to find unfavor-
able conditions, and to overcome them we shall need our most careful
judgment. Often we will make mistakes, but by earnest and aggressive
efforts, and sincere loyalty to the cause of music, we can do much to
maintain high standards of art life, to develop in others these latent
idealsg to inspire in them the same enthusiasm, and to help in our small
way the work of building up a truly musical nation.
l wonder how many of us really appreciate the advantages offered by
being in and around the city of Boston. There is hardly a week but some
musician of fame performs in Jordan Hall. The1'e is also the Symphony
Orchestra, which is one of the best in the world, and at both public
rehearsals and concerts is assisted by the most noted soloists. Then there
l9lI THE NEUME 121
is the Opera House, where already a few of our pupils have been placed
and where the performances of the best have been enjoyed by us. Many
of the churches which have the largest and best toned organs give recitals
during the winter which it is a special privilege to hear. Besides these,
there is the Public Library, well supplied with musical books of all kinds:
and we certainly must not forget our own school library which is so well
stocked and where anyone may spend his spare moments.
But the musical atmosphere is a most essential and very valuable
condition to the studentg and here is where our school stands head and
shoulders above all other musical institutions. Both within its own walls
and the many institutions above mentioned, the atmosphere is of the best
possible type, and the chance of imbibing its benefits is offered to all. In
the years to come, when teaching will be occupying our attention, the
true value of this opportunity will be revealed and too often will bring
memories of possibilities not realized,-musical treats that we "passed by
on the other side."
Never cross the bridge until you come to it. This is an old, old
proverb, yet how few of us heed its teachings. When we have a task
before us we begin to fret and worry, trying to imagine how dreadful it
is all going to beg but when the time comes for the performance of this
duty, we find it is nothing as we have pictured, and the dreadful things
we imagined have vanished, leaving clear our road to success. It is
then we wonder why we had been so foolish as to worry, for it did not
better things one mite and only caused ourselves a lot of nenedless axiety.
I-Iow much wiser it would be if we would think only of the To-days
and let the To-morrows take care of themselves. So in our future work
let us try to remember this and with the poet say, "PII not confer with
Sorrow till to-morrow, but Joy shall have her way this very day."

-Q 1, i
an N. E. C. 23-HARZARD 0
fClipping from the Bosting Bugle, November 18, 1910.j
HE Conservatory Eleven showed its usual form and speed this
afternoon by taking the Harzard boys into camp to the tune of
23-0. The Musical Mob displayed extraordinary enthusiasm by
its howling of Conservatory yells and songs. Also the Conservatory
Brass Band, led by Carl Peirce, did its durndest.
Williamson started the game by driving a 30-yd. kick-off to F1'-th-
-ngh-mg but Seiler was right there with one of those fiying tackles for
which he is noted all around the region of the Dormitorics. After the
Collegians had failed three times to advance the pigskin, it became Con-
servatory's ball on the 22-yd. line, and full-back Currie, in the first rush
of the game, advanced the ball to Harvard's 10-yd. line. The Cambridge
Chappies were powerless before the terrible onslaught of this husky
young giant. In two more line-bucking plunges, Pattison, the former
Rutland Sanitarium star, pushed the spheroid over Harzardis line, mak-
ing the first touchdown for the Bean-town aggregation.
Grant kicked the goal, but as the goal post was harder than his foot,
he 'put his toe out of joint and, incidentally, himself out of the game.
C-rb-tt kicked off to Williamson-BUT -just as he was going to
make a 75-yd. run for another touchdown, the time whistle blew and the
first quarter was over. Score, N. E. C. 6-Harzard 0. '
191: THE NEUME 125
fAt this point cheer-leader Besserer fainted from physical over-
strenuosity and had to be carried from the scene of encounter by a host
of his female admirers.j
L-sl-e fof Harzard, not Dana, kicked off to Venner, playing in Grant's
position, who deftly caught the ball, crossed his fingers, and said in a
sweet talcum-powder voice, "Time, while I tie my shoe lace."-Then
resuming his usual scrappy attitude, he started to rush down the field at
ten miles per hour, but unfortunately tripped on the aforesaid shoe lace
Qmaking a graceful in la Gilbert stage fall on the 10-yd. linej, which, being
so short, immediately snapped. Referee McLean then penalized the Con-
servatory 10 yds. for Currie slugging M-n-t.
Vogel next made a forward pass to Seiler, who thought it was to be
passed on to M-K-yg but M-K-y passed him one back, and as a result
the ball was fumbled but recovered by Weed behind the line, making the
second score. Pattison kicked the goal gently but firmly, having been
previously warned of his predecessor's fate. Vogel kicked off to C-rb-tt,
who was immediately downed with great violence on the 15-yd. line by
the trusty Gillespie. Harzard then tried a mass play through tackle, but
Mercer was there strong and held the whole Harzard back-field to a gain
of 52 in. In this play, however, he tore a small hole in his football
trousers, which of course, was a great loss to the team-work of the Back
Bay School. This ended the first half, and the Conservatory boys went
in to get their usual bath and application of Heinz's Honey Almond
Cream. While the team were receiving their instructions for the second
half from Coach Jeffrey, the Conservatory rooters, headed by assistant
cheer-leader Elson, did a snake march around the field, singing the Pil-
grim Chorus from Tannhauser-Busch and other appropriate melodies.
Reggie Cu1'rie started the second half by kicking to F-sh-r, who was
immediately pinned to the 25-yd. fclothesj line by Williamson. Harzard
then tried to punt, but both the Conservatory tackles broke through and
blocked it. In the scrimmage that ensued, eight Harzard men and Currie
were more or less injured, the latter receiving a large puncture in his
"think-tank." At this moment the attention of both players and spec-
tators was attracted by a fine solo on the bass drum, skillfully executed by
Herbert jenny, who has had wide experience in the Conservatory
Orchestra, the Milwaukee Rubber Band, and other notorious combinations.
The Harzard Chappies, weakened by the loss of so many men, were
easily pushed back by the mass plays of Pattison, Venner, and the
redoubtable Currie, who still remained in the game in spite of a great
loss of "think." Then Grant made a fake punt, which he performed
126 THE NEUME I9Il
quite naturally fbeing the star fakir of the Conservatoryj and advanced
the pigskin 12 yds. A milk-curdling yell rent the Stadium as Pattison
staggered over the line making the third touchdown. The dear boy was
completely exhausted and the services of Elisha Perry and a large keg of
Adam's Ale were required to revive his drooping spirits. By reaching
up a little, Safford easily drooped the ball over the goal, making one
Nobly and calmly had Harzard taken this unexpected defeat and not
until now did they complain of the rough play of Williamson and Barnes.
Referee McLean, having looked it up in Elson's Dictionary, declared
that Williamson and Barnes should be suspended from the line-of scrim-
mage. Their places were taken by Sub. Doersam and Sub. Tyler, who
had received excellent practice in Trainer Elson's Sub. Classes.
With renewed vigor and great gusto, however, the last period was
started by a kick-off to Reggie Currie, who being so used to rushing fthe
growlerj started down the field at a hobble-skirt paceg and although
several Harzard men were in his way, he gave them all the straight arm,
which he had practiced to perfection at Filene's-Monday-Morning-
Marked-Down-Sales. Making a 75-yd. run, he scored the fourth and
last touchdown. Gillespie tried to kick the goal but failed by the nar1'ow
margin of 14 yds. This circumstance enraged him greatly, to the extent
of coloring the surrounding atmosphere with his native German. The
time whistle then blew, leaving the final score N. E. C. 23-Harzard 0.
The surprising feature of the game was the Conservatory kicking,
because no one ever expected to find any kickers in the Conservatory.
Without the slightest doubt, Currie was the star of the game and was
carried from the Held in the arms of a sympathetic Cambridge policeman.
His name will go down on the unwritten pages of Football History with

1911 THE NEUME l27
Seeing the Conservatory "Through a
FEW days ago, while walking up Huntington Avenue, it was my
great surprise and pleasure to meet Coach l of Harvard.
Knowing him to be interested in all branches of sport, especially
when connected with music, I volunteered to show him around the
Conservatory. Over there across the Avenue, said I, is Symphony
Hall, where many of our students practice their mass plays in the "rush"
section Friday afternoons. This is Children's Hospital, very conveniently
situated near the Conservatory, and very often, in case of accidents, one
can see a limp form being carried across from the Conservatory on an
I-Iere is Trainer Putnam's Health Cafe, where the students are care-
fully trained to tackle the most ferocious Welsh Rarebits and Lobster a
la Newberg ever raised in the wilds of East Africa. Simultaneously,
their pocketbooks are equally well fsj trained. Ah! This is none other
than the Conservatory building itself. The gold bricks and marble slabs
of which it is mainly composed were imported from Germany,'thus giv-
ing it a very musical appearance. The tennis courts are on the other
side and the baseball field is between the back of the building and St.
Botolph Street. The golf links are on the roof and the football gridiron
is just being taken out of the incubator in the basement. Let us enter the
noble edifice. This fine bronze statue of Hadley, 'the Father-in-Law of
Baseball, was presented by the NEUME Board of 1911, being purchased
with the surplus money they made on the NEUME. '
This is the Rapid-Transit Elevator where our track team and crew
have many pounds of extra flesh taken off by the Boston Elevated method
Of HThere's always room for one more." We'll take a ride in it as far
as the basement. fFive minutes have elapsed.j At last we have arrived.
This is the Sinfonia Room. Notice how well the walls and ceiling have
been padded. This insures perfect safety to the inmates even in their
wildest atllictions. Notice also that all the furniture is screwed to the
floor, because some nights, you know, they have imitation air-ship shows,
balloon ascensions, etc., and only a few of the patients have their lives
insured. The paddles and other implements of torture are not made
:ze THE NEUME 1911
These are the Conservatory practice rooms. In them is carried on
every kind of practice from normal hand culture to advanced violin
torture, including all the fifty-seven varieties of ivory tickling and the
untangling of vocal knots and chords.
This is the far-famed Conservatory gymnasium, the best equipped
and most modern gymnasium on this side of the Nile River. As this is
Saturday afternoon, we will have a chance to see some of the classes at
their drill. This is one of the third year classes. Notice the great
precision, etc., with which they go through their exercises. See also
how well trained, competent and interested their teachers seem to be.
Those students running around on the circular track are practicing for the
Dual Athletic Meet with Yale on April Fool's Day. These a1'e the
shower baths and dressing rooms connected with the gymnasium. They
are the generous donation of the Class of 1919.
We will now take an ascension of one Hight to Recital Hall. This
is where the students practice the gentle art of Concert Deportment and
Pantomime. The latter is becoming very popular lately, its motto being,
"Think before you speak and then say it to yourself."
We are now in the corridor again. This is positively the quietest
corner in the building fper order C. F. D.j, no sounds ever being heard
except the tinkle of a piano and the melodious QFD intonations of some
irate professor's voice. This is the main entrance to Jordan Hall, one
of the six entrances where thestudents practice all their trick plays slip-
ping into concerts, shows, etc. I'm afraid we'll have to walk upstairs,
as the elevator is having its much-needed afternoon nap.
This is the second Hoor. This is the Libra1'y, more correctly called
the stable, because the students have access to the full line of ponies,
horses, trots, etc. On each side of the Library, as a bit of artistic land-
scape, is a Girls' Sorority Room. These two rooms are noted for the
continuous and steady flow of hilarity which they emit. We are now
passing along "Shriekers' Row"-there a1'e some wads of cotton for your
ears and be sure your wig is on tight.j If noise counts for anything, we
have here a continuous performance of Grand Uproar.
This is the A to L Organ Department, named after Pierpont Atol,
the gentleman who donated it. In this corner is the Solfeggio Room. It
is well known to many of the students as the Conservatory Fruit and
Vegetable Garden, as they are accustomed to finding many to-ma-toes,
plums, lemons, etc. there. All these rooms are devoted to various kinds
of gymnastics, each teacher having his peculiar brand.
1911 THE NEUME 129
This is the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority Room. Notice the iron
grating outside the window. It was presented by the Society for Preven-
tion of Cruelty to Wild Beasts-Qit's two fiights to the ground, you know,
and the sidewalk is not very softj. We'll take another ride in the
elevator now. That noise you hear like a phonograph is the Violin
Sight Playing Class in Jordan Hall.
Maybe you would like to see some of the dormitory buildingsg we'll
take a walk over there. This is Hotel Bartol, the swellest hotel in the
city. The students are not allowed to loiter around there very much,
because it is inhabited by such a fast UQ crowd, the smart set, you know.
Yes, we're on the Campus, now! This is called the Gainsborough
Promenade. Isn't it pretty with the green grass growing all around the
benches? Yes, I think it isn't, too. Notice the lovely shade trees on
each side. They were transplanted from Italy by the Mayor in com-
memoration of the 1911 NEUME Joke Department, which departed this
life April 37, 1911.
Oh no, not an insane asylum! It's just the N. E. C. Dormitory. That
female shrieking you hear is merely the vocal students practicing. Notice
what a decorative appearance the front has-the back is even more so.
Those heavy smokestacks and other weighty-looking objects were put up
there on the roof to keep it in its right place when the rousing times
occur beneath it. A very familiar figure around this locality is Mr. I-larry
Boyles, director and trainer of the Girls' athletic department. His spe-
ciality is "team work" in teams of two or three, as the occasion may
demand, and needless to say, he is a great success at it. But this is only
his first year here, so we still have hopes of his reforming.
Almost any night about 12 o'elock, one can see Hemcnway Street and
the surrounding windows filled with enchanted mortals, so enthralled by
the subtle power of sweet music that they scarcely dare to voice their
applause No, I reckon we had better not go ing the Preceptresses
might not happen to be out. We'll take a walk in the Fenway and get a
Bach view ofthe building. Oh yes, certainlyg one of the girls' favorite
pastimes is walking in the Fenway, but that never happens after dark,
It was while walking through the Fenway one evening after 10
o'clock that Shakespeare was inspired to say, "And every casement hath
its sparkling little candle, etc." These are the dormitory tennis courts,
so called because in this region every kind of a game, from tennis to
courting, is played. This is the Water System of the Fenway. It affords
iso THE NEUME l9ll
fine bathing, fishing, canoeing, and practice for the Crew in the summerg
also skating and hockey matches in the winter. It is so clear and green
that it has often been mistaken for the Campbell Soup reservoir, whence
the Dormitories draw their supply in sterilized iron pipes.
I wonder what that fellow and girl over on the bench are studying,
they seem extremely interested in it, so it is probably their Solfeggio.
Yes, that is the new Art Museum. What we've just been examining is
the Heart Museum-don't get them mixed. This is where you take a car
down town. I advise you to go to the Grand Uproar House and see the
latest comical hit, The Girl of the Silvery South. Yes, it's a shame that
we have to leave such pleasant neighbors and surroundings, but as William
Wordsworth Barnes said, '4The best of friends must part." Good-by,
Mr. --, I hope you've enjoyed your trip.

For the benefit of the many hard-working students who, on account
of their practice, are never able to spend the time to go to the theatre, we
review some passing plays.
This does not need a review, as it was given in Recital Hall, and of
course everybody was there. The poultry was imported for the occasion
from Gardiner Hall. On account of Mr. Dennee's experience in chicken-
brooding, the management of the show was entrusted to him. fSee cut
of the Stage Manager giving instructions to Leading Lady.j
THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS
This is a Southern play, the main WEBB of the plot being woven
around Nashville, Tenn. Deals with a young man's trip to Nashville
during the Christmas holidays. F. Otis Drayton in leading role.

Rural play, at times boisterous. Sounds fishy, but name is mislead-

THE FOLLIES OF 1910
Ziegfeld's Revue of the history of last year's Class.
Entertaining comedy. Cast contains such names as Messrs. Trow-
bridge, Leach, Browne, Simonds, Grant, Misses Brown, Howe, Wood-
Plot is laid in Jordan Hall. A noted Thespian Light attempts to
play Shakespeare. A Legal Round-up makes it realistic.
This play is a story of a wolf famong lambsj in the gold-brick busi-
ness. Chester Cook takes the leading part. Notice that new spring suit.
You will all be surprised to learn that the sca1'ecrow is a hat and it's a
horrible one, too, but Seiler is a martyr and Wears it just as if he likes to.
A THE GIRL IN THE TRAIN
This is a story of Commencement. The title is misleading, as trains
are out of style now, and even hobbies are in the balance. Last year,
Aline Tarbell was leading lady in a very tight it la mode hobble. Miss
Tarbell is in the leading role again this season and a horrible sinking
feeling creeps o'er us as we think of this year's performance on Com-
mencement Day. O you Harem Skirt!

We would not advise any Conservatory pupils to see this play, as
most of them have that habit of doing Harmony, Solfeggio, etc. We
tried it in a Harmony Exam. and it didn't workg result, FLUNK.

A Titled Romance
"In Bygone Days" George Chadwick, "The Sea King," met "The
Lovely Rosabelle," "The Miller's Daughter," from whom he had stolen
"A Bonny Curl." They wandered "In Mead where Roses Bloom" and
"Green Grows the Willow." Taking her hand, he said "Art Thou
Weary," "My Sweetheart?" If so, yonder "There is a River" where
"The Rose Leans Over the Pool." Wilt thou come and hear "The
Autumn Winds" "Serenade" "The Lily?" She answered, Yes, my
"Lochinvar,"'but let us hasten, for "The Northern Days arc Short."
"Before the Dawn," seated beneath the tree from whence "Sings the
Nightingale to the Rose," he whispered "Thou Art so Like a Flower."
Ah! thought "Rosabelle," "He Loves Me," and turning to him, she
said, "Please Do" grant my "Request," and sing me a "Song from the
Persian" about "The Maiden and the Butterfly." Without "A Warn-
ing" they were interrupted by "Larry O'Toole," who introduced Clayton
The latter told many "Secrets of the Heart." Through him they
learned of "Mrs. Bardell's Proposal" to "Pabolo, the Bull-fighter," who
lived "In the Village" "By the Ganges," and also of "Washington's
First Defeat" at "Gretna Green."
Clayton took them to the "Bcau's Christmas" party, where "Ninette
and Ninon" were anxiously waiting to see "Whether or No" "Julia"
"The Nautch Girl" would accept "The Fan" from '4The Violin Maker
of Cremona' who sang to her "The Samouri Love Song" and called her
'iMy Blossom Maid."
After the party Clayton fell asleep and had "A Dream of All-

which "Op-o-me-thumb" was being chased by "The Changeling." He

The Harem Skirt
PHASE of dormitory life not widely known, but none the less of
supreme importance, manifests itself occasionally in colossal
efforts for the public good. A body of women thus unified has an
immense opportunity for raising world standards, seizing advanced ideas,
and wringing the last drop of the crystal water of truth from the well of
subtle thinking. VVe have a striking instance of this at hand. It was
left to the keen-minded, far-seeing maids of our central dormitory to
discover the utmost necessity of taking a stand in regard to that social
evil, or virtue-the harem skirt. Tripping gaily to breakfast one
morning recently, their bright young faces became instantly serious at the
discovery of a sign prominently posted at the desk. It read in this

Much difficulty was experienced in appointing a chairman, as each
girl nominated herself, and discoursed in glowing terms upon her ability
as a presiding 0H'lC61'. The question was Hnally decided according to
size, the largest girl taking the chair and holding it by sheer physical
prowess against all smaller contestants. Miss Charlotte Maxson was
A doortender was next appointed, as it was deemed necessary to
exclude the public at large until some decision had been reached. Miss
Luta Grimes was accorded this honor. Under the weight of so great a
responsibility, however, she collapsed utterly, and was deposed by the
chair. Her pleas for forgiveness and a second trial were so pitiful and
heartrending as to be irresistible, and she was reinstated, whereupon she
" For the enlightenment of male readers, we would explain that the "harem

showed marked improvement, and kept the howling mob beyond the
curtains at bay in a truly masterly manner.
Miss Gladys Pitcher was appointed secretary pro lem. An
extremely interesting debate took place. The fact that everyone talked
at once made it rather difficult to get the finer points of the argument,
but now and then a well-turned ph1'ase, or a bit of clever gesticulation at
la Gilbert, reached respectively the ear and eye of any orator pausing for
breath, and betrayed wonderful logic and penetrating insight into the
subject at hand. A chair was used as a platform, the table being some-
what frail, and too highly polished for this purpose. In all the eloquent
e1'owd of female Demosthenes there was but one dissenting voice, that of
Miss Lesley La Beaume. All others were rabidly in favor of adopting
the new costume. The effort of the dissenter, it must be said, was noble
in the extreme.
Live models were introduced and all the grace and freedom of the
Hjupe-eulotte" was displayed to the greatest advantage. That the
garment would prove invaluable to the athletic girl, particularly in her
field events, i. e., pole-vaulting, the high and running broad jump, shot-
putting and hurdling, was well demonstrated.
Hereupon the dissenter was forcibly ejected, so that the following
resolution might be unanimously carried. It was resolved: That the
ha1'em skirt engenders grace and freedom of movementg is both artistic
and comfortable, and furthers perceptibly the ascent of the Mt. McKinley
of all true women,-the emancipation of the sexg and that after serious
and careful consideration, we, the girls of Dana Hall, do herewith set the
seal of our approval upon said garment.
The meeting the11 adjourned, and the harem-skirtists disbanded
'midst rousing cheers, after a remarkable procession, wherein many
makeshift harem skirts figured t1'iumphantly.

Suggestions for a New Opera in English
We We M
The NEUME Board, in their editorial research, have discovered the
following remarkable plot for a Grand Opera in English, for the uplift-
ing of mankind in general and the glory of our Alma Mater.
Of course, there had to be a heroine, and Mr. Gilbert suggested Miss
Lilly, because she has a good voice. As yet, of course, the thread of the
story was but startedg what would we do for a plot?
By the merest coincidence we received a letter from Lloyd Kerr,
saying he would be in Boston soon for a short visit. Then the inspiration
struck us fin the facej and the full glory of its possibilities was realized.
A good title would be "The Prodigal Son," with Lloyd Kerr in leading

overcome with remorse, seeks a reconciliation. Quick curtain.
Act III. The restoration to Eden. Everything is cleared up and
preparations are being made for the banquet for the prodigal. Here a
great difiiculty arises. Where shall we get the fattcd calf? This
predicament kept us back until March 15th, when Charles Doersam
arrived and that settled it. The Fatted Calf, however, refused to be
killed, but a compromise was effected, and he agreed to drink a toast to
the happy pair.

to write the music, but we will submit the Libretto to the composition

Extract from the "Danaville Trumpetern
ova we isa
One of the prettiest weddings of the season took place at Dana Hall last
evening, when Miss Orlean Evans and Mr. Carl Maxson were united in marriage
by the Rev. Lesley La Beaume, D.D. The bride was attended by Miss Gladys
Pitcher as bridesmaid, and the groom by his best man, Mr. John Waite. Miss
Sybil Mitchell acted as tiower girl, and Miss Vesta Dewey was ring bearer.
The bride was attired in a Parisian creation of white satin, and wore a
beautiful old lace veil, which had been in the family for years. It was tastefully
arranged, and was caught with a dainty spray of orange blossoms. The bridesmaid
wore a gown of tiimsy white, made in the latest hobblc fashion. Miss Dewey was
beautiful in a fairy creation, and Miss Mitchell looked as though she had literally
been plucked from a fiower garden.
The bride was given away by her mother, Mrs. Bertha St. john Graves, who
looked most artistic in a harem creation of pink. Mr. Louis Williams very
skillfully played the wedding march, and also sang the wedding song in heart-
rcnding tones. The groomls gift to the bride was a lovely amethyst necklace,
l9ll THE NEUME 149
while the bridesmaid, flower girl, and ring bearer each received dainty heart-shaped
pins of Venetian mosaic. After the ceremony, a bounteous and delicious wedding
luncheon was served in an adjoining room. The decorations were very elaborate
and artistic. The couple stood beneath a canopy of white, from the top of which
was suspended a floral wedding bell. Flowers in profusion were everywhere.
One of the most dramatic incidents of the wedding occurred when Miss Leila
Snyder rushed in and attempted to stop the ceremony. She proposed to the groom
last leap year, and he accepted, but upon meeting Miss Evans he changed his
mind, and jilted Miss Snyder in a most cruel fashion. However, Rev. La Beaume
saw no reason whv the happy couple should not wed, and so continued the solemn
Both bride and groom are popular with the occupants of Dana Hall, and all
join in wishing them much happiness and success.
Following is the wedding ceremony, originated for the occasion by Rev. La
This man, this maid, who stand here now
Have come to take the marriage vow.
And when their sacred oaths they've sworn,
Apart they never can be torn.
So ere these solemn things are done,
I charge you answer, every one,
If any just cause you can show,
Or any reason you may know,
Why they united cannot be,
Speak now, and speak most truthfully-
Speak ere they quaff the marriage cup,
Or else hereafter just shut up.
When man and woman would be one,
Some solemn things must first be doneg
Some sacred vows must first be made
And must be kept,-are you afraid?
Or, can you ever faithful be,
Both her to him and he to she?
Carl,-wilt thou take Orlean to wife,
To love and cherish all your life?
And on the days when she's not well,
And doesn't hear the breakfast bell,
Will you your orange give to her
And fiddle scraping please defer
Until she shall be well, and then
You can begin to play again?
And all the wealth that you may own
Wilt thou not keep it for thine own,
But wilt thou share it with thy wife,
Not only now but throughout life?
And when she has an awful cold,
At her hoarse cough will you not scold,
But ever feed her soothing syrup
And gently bid her try to cheer up?
And when she has grown old and gray,
Dim eyes scarce seeing light of day,
So thin she scarcely can be seen,
Wilt thou still love thy wife Orlean?
Lean,-wilt thou take this man to wed,
Sundays wilt thou make his bed?
when he comes home late at night,
thou leave for him the light?
love him sick and love him well,
all thy secrets to him tell?
if he must go out to play,
fix the room on cleaning day?
wilt thou promise surely this,
No other man thou'lt ever kiss?
And if you've coffee roll so sweet,
Wilt thou give half to him to eat?
And when he has grown old and fat,
With whitened hair, and the like of that,
Wilt love him still whate'er betides
And not laugh at his wobbling sides?
Who is it gives Orlean away
To marry Carl upon this day?
after ministerj :-
I take thee, Orlean, for my wife,
To love and honor all my life.
I swear that you Illl never curse,
But love for better or for worse.
after ministerj :-
For husband, Carl, I take thee now,
To love as much as I know how.
No matter what that's wrong you do,
Illl never throw whisk brooms at you.
With this ring
I thee bring
All I have, '
Those who have been joined together
Can't be unjoined, no not ever.
Let no man put apart these two,
Wedded fast and wedded true.
They've given each to each a ringg
They've given their hearts, their everything.
So now I say they're man and wife,
United firm for all their life.
Their union I do gladly bless,
And wish them joy, peace, happiness.

Take a young boy who is dying,
Dying to a mushy tune,
Plant him where the birdlings Hying
Warble in the month of june.
Lay him by his brother Willie,
Beg his mother "to weep o'er us,"
Though it sounds a trifie silly

Send the music upward swooping
At the end of every line,
Make the mother sad and drooping
In a picturesque decline.
Put an angel on the cover,
Also sketch a cemetery,
With a rainbow bending over.

A hopeless strife with Fate.

But the grind he worked like a regular shark
QEven as you and lj.
They say the fool expected an H A "

Or perhaps at least a hard earned U B"

He laughed, of course, at a possible ff C,"
So it jolted him hard when he got a "D"

That heat the time just so,
And every way the ticker went
Our Mary had to go.
NVhen does a violin sound best?
VVhen it has a mellow D.

The Stieff Petite
enjoys the unique distinction of
being the phenomenal 5 ft. grand.
It is not what others claim and propound -that which can
not be done. ln the Stieff Petite Grand Piano the means has
been accomplished of blending and harmonizing piano science
with acoustics, creating a 5 ft. grand of which it can be right-
fully claimed that the Stieff Petite Grand Piano stands out pre-
eminently as a satisfactory 5 ft. grand, destroying the worn-out
theory " that a grand can not be a grand under 6 ft. in length."
The STIEFF PETITE GRAND PIANO is the connoisseur's grand.
