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 expectations.

IlALI'II WILLIAMSON 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."

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. EDITH F. MILLER.

Assistani Treasurer 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 meaning. 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 70 THE NEUME, l9ll 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 by them. 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 :- Prelude in B minor for Organ . , . . . . . Bach MR. JOHN SNYDER, Reading, Penn.

Class spirit was everywhere generously shown in the cheers and songs and in the enthusiasm with which every member did his part for the afternoon. Miss Dyer, the Chairman of 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. 72 THE NEUME l9ll 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 House and the followinv aroffram was fiven 1- 7 D P!

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 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 University of Michigan--a fitting climax for the season.

N. np I tg, 1911 THE NEUME as 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 contact. r l --......,... ., , , l L V ,K , ' , , 4. 4 Q 4 'U V 5 ' 'I A r ' Q. , ' 'il ', , A v 5, E ' 1 t C Y P sf' w - tm " ff -f Phl lVlu Gamma Soronty Founded October I7, l898, at Hollins, Vs.

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 present day. The following is the Beta program for the year:- NovE1v11sER 1, Study, " Lohengrin." NOVEMEER 8, Music: Purcell, Scarlatti, Bach. NOVEMHER 15, Chapter entertains Sinfonia l"raternity.

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.

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 broadly. 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 "App, Appoggiaturag D. App., Double Appoggiaturag F.

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 of music. 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 overwhelming. 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 a listener. 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 education. H 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. 1911 THE NEUME 1 '03 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 104 THE NEUME 1911 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 their worship. 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 say that? 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 neighbors. i 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 peace? 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 study?" 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 HEIIVIWEG o?oo?ao?a 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. Opportunity 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. The Secret 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. THE NEUME 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. THE NEUME l9ll 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. ED E THE NEUME 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. E ED THE NEUME 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. THE NEUME 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! THE NEUME The Cinquefoil 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.

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- standing. 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 true art. A retiring and self-conscious disposition is a serious handicap to success in any art. 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 next time. 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.

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 more point. 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 invisible ink. The line-up was as follows:- N. E. C. Harzard. l.e. Seiler Le, F-It-n l.t. Mercer 1.1, M-K-y l.g.

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 improvised stretcher. 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 of rubber. :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, you know. 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. Q, - 4!

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! .

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 Gilbert. 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- Hallows," in which he thought he saw "A Scene from Pagliacci" in which "Op-o-me-thumb" was being chased by "The Changeling." He was awakened by "Jan and Mina" singing "The Fakir's Song." Half asleep, he cried,-Be Frank, Wat-son of mine is singing when he should be making "Love in a Toy Shop?" l9ll THE NEUME l39 The Harem Skirt o?0o?0o?0 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 fashion :- IMPORTANT MEETING! fDana-Gardiner Parlorj TO DISCUSS IIAREM SKIRT' SHALL WE WEAR TIIEM? com: cms!! com-1 ,ur V' 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 victorious. 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 skirt" is a species of garment now quite it la mode among the women of foreign countries. It resembles the so-called "trousers" of the stronger sex, and has been but lately introduced here. 140 THE NEUME 1911 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.

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 male part. Act I. A youth and maiden have had a quarrel. Youth leaves in rage, singing "Good-by Forever" fvery tragicj. Act II. About one year has elapsed since Act I. Maiden seated in drawing-room trying to study French, but can't. Enter Homestead Company, just Finishing a season on the road. Youth sees maiden, is 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. N. B.-We are very sorry that our limited time made it impossible to write the music, but we will submit the Libretto to the composition class in order that our Alma Mater may have first chance at the glorious plot. There was a young maiden whose hair Was the envy of girls everywhere, Until that sad hour It was caught in a shower- Since then the curls haven't been there. l9lI THE NEUME 143 A Little Doubtful When a pair of red lips are upturned to your own, With no one to gossip about it, Do you pray for endurance to let them alone?

And now again we find ourselves In Jordan Hall once more, Practicing Gilbert's well known bow, Just as wc did before. We really tried though, with all zest, To make that bow just right. But even at its very best It was an awful sight. Remember what the teachers said About acquiring good technique? And how each one in a different way Proved his method the best to seek? The way to get the richest tone The fingers high must go, And bring them strongly on the keys, One teacher says, "Just so." The explanation seems so clear, Yet ere we turn away,- HA word with you I'd like to have,-" Another one will say: "That is a false remark you heard About the richest tone. Have fingers low, close to the keys, That is the way alone." So all explain with equal worth Why their own way is best, Till our poor heads are in a whirl, And we almost think it jest. THE NEUME Oh, yes! and will you e'er forget That dreadful Junior Exam? How all of us did fret and stew, Staying up late to cram?

A-S. -' 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 ceremony. 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 Beaumez- 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, THE NEUME CARL Crepeats ORLEAN Qrepeats Bo'rr1 :- MINISTER :- 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, And And Wilt Wilt .And And Wilt And 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, ' just everything. 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. THE NEUME ISI 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. How to Make a Sentimental Song and Chorus 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 It will do for "Song and Chorus." 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.
