Buxton, a Trustee of the Conservatory) Sterling integrity, abiding fairness, unselfishness, a deep sjinpathy for all sorts and conditions of men and a modesty which amounted to self-effacement were a natural part of the late Edwin P. Brown . . . In spite of crowded days and intricate problems he retained his warm feeling for humanity, and he exercised it in a manner which was as admirable as it was unostentatious. He did not care who sat on the stage or in the front seats. He merely desired that good things should make good progress. He was perhaps the most beloved of the graduates of the English High school . . . Boys ' clubs were dear to him. Struggling young men and women had an easy approach to him. Like his father, he was an intense lover of music. As president of the trustees of the New England Conservatory of Music, he gave his time and money most generously. 3n ilemoriam ALFRED DE VOTO October 2, 187 " )— November 24, 1933 An honor graduate of New England Conservatory and for thirty-five years a member of the Faculty in pianoforte. A man who will be remembered with respect by his artist associates and fel- low teachers; and with gratitude for his kindly and beneficent influence, by his many pupils.

Our experience of today is not unique. It is only one of the natural shocks that flesh is heir to. A similar readjustment of comparatively recent date was the upheaval in Eng- land in the .seventeenth century. The outstanding mind of that day was the poet, John Milton. His grasp of practical affairs demonstrates the wi.sdom of the old Greeks. From them we have borrowed the word " poet, " which means literally " the doer " or " the maker " — the one who can " make good. " Milton alone attained perspective in reviewing the catastrophic developments of his day. Not only could he .see his way clear to " assert eternal Providence " in the face of difficulties as puzzling as ours, but he left as his moment ' s monument the wise conclusion: " They also serve who only stand and wait. " It will .stand you in better .stead to hold firmly to this idea and realize it in practice, than to flaunt before the world all the diplomas and degrees that you could amass in .several lifetimes! If that particular position which you know that you are fitted for does not materialize as soon as you feel it should, remember Milton ' s admonition. If life now makes heavy demands upon you in the way of yeoman ser- vice, while you yearn with hope toward the stars, perfect yourself in these lesser things that you may eventually be made accountable for greater. If the opportuni- ties to employ your " higher learning " appear beneath your worth, be willing to .serve even in the position of bus-boy or chamber-maid with mental poise and con- secration to higher ends, continuing to advance yourself in your own chosen .study so that, while you " only stand, " you will not be shifting backward. The law of averages must cast you toward the top in fullness of time. And above all, while you " wait, " wait with the dignity of nature ' s noblemen. Soon you will find, then, that you have " served " indeed, both yourself and others, to the fullest measure.

This organization has as its object the promotion, through cooperation and affiliation, of closer friendship among the members of all Greek-letter societies in the school; the fostering of a spirit of mutual helpfulness; the advancement of graduate and under-graduate interests, and the furthering of fraternity scholarships. In a word, the Inter-Fraternity Council aims to be of the greatest possible aid to Alma Mater. 49 THE N E M E 19 3 4 Kappa Gamma Psi Back Roll): A. Griffen, M. Rylander, K. Bell, E. Stuntzner, S.

Starting from a single chapter, it has gradually grown to be a national fraternity, with chapters in all sections of the country. Alpha Chapter, still one of the most progressive, has always stood for high ideals. Its aims are to aid its members in a moral and material way; to encourage sincere and earnest music study; to promote and dignify the musical profession; to establish closer relationship between musicians and music schools; and to work for the development of music in America. One of the many advantages the fraternity offers its members is the annual award of a scholarship. This scholarship is taken from a fund known as the Pader- ewski Scholarship Fund; Mr. Paderewski, a national honorary member, being the sponsor of it. In addition to Mr. Paderewski, Kappa Gamma Psi has among its honorary members such world renowned artists as Fritz Kreisler, Ossip Gabrilowitch, Pablo Casals, and Harold Bauer. 50 1 9 .

Incorporated in 1901 as the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity of America, it has since expanded to include fifty-two chapters. Having as its purpose the advancement of music in America, Sinfonia has striven to encourage its members to greater efforts by the awarding of scholarships and prizes. To increase the familiarity of its members with American music each chapter offers an annual concert of American compositions. In addition to this there are presented each year informal concerts of various works, and members are urged to contribute to the public concerts and recitals of the school. The fraternity also affords an opportunity for recreation by its numerous social events. There are smokers, impromptu gatherings, and dances run in collaboration with other fraterni- ties. One of the most popular of t hese functions is the weekly luncheon, to which are invited the men students of the Conservatory. 52 19 3 4 THE N E U M E Mu Phi Epsilon Back Row: E. Ellis, P.

" This society is e.stablished to provide an organization dedicated to the furtherance of musical education — Its prime object is the encouragement of eminent achievement in performance or orig- inal composition. To that end, special emphasis is placed upon the maintenance of a curriculum so designed as to insure the utmost development in the applied branches of the art.
