Text from Pages 1 - 48 of the 1945 volume:

f The neume 1945 published by the Neume Board for the Senior Class of the New England Conservatory of Music Boston, Massachusetts dedication to ERNST LEVY The graduating class of 1945 dedicates Its yearbook as a symbol of appreciation for his efforts, cooperation, and ever-present sense of humor. We feel that the Conservatory will suffer a great loss at his departure. This year has seen the completion of his 1 0th Symphony; and the per- formance of his 9th Symphony at Carnegie Hall in New York. His pianistic abilities also have not gone unnoticed; and as he leaves the portals of the Conservatory, he goes on to greater and higher achievements. We who have studied with him and have known him shall be grateful always for his kindness, understanding, and genius. Open cJHeltef to llie duSA of 1945 DEAR NEWLY-BAKED MUSICIANS AND FRIENDS! It seems easier to make a symphony than to write that " neumatic " letter you have asked for. . . . Not because I have nothing to say — but rather because I have so many things to say, and because the important things one can say in life and in art, about life and art, are almost too confidential to be put pompously on a front page. For everything important in life, in history, in art, begins in one ' s innermost self — is shrouded in silence and secrecy, long before becoming tangible, visible, audible. War begins in man ' s heart. Peace begins in man ' s heart. Don ' t ever fall for the stupid fallacy called " realism " ! How could you, then, be educators? How could you be artists, musicians? For music, also, begins in man ' s heart, and in silence and secrecy. And from there on goes out to discover — literally: dis-coverl — the endless variations of beauty (beginning, alas, with such things as intervals, scales and so forth — luhum! Let us always listen to the music behind the sounds. That is what I call " originality " : going down to the " origins, " to the sources. That means sincerity in the true sense of the word, and I would say that the greater the genius, the more sincerity there is in his work. So, maybe, the best I can wish for you is genuineness, sincerity. Approach the things from within — then you will be truly original! Affectionately yours To the Class of 1945 We are the fourth class to graduate since Pearl Harbor, and with each year the increasing pressure and urgency of the war have left a deeper impression on us. Under the inevitable conditions of wartime the faculty, the administration, and the entire student body have tried to uphold the standards and spirit of the school of our choice, which some of us have never known in peace time. We will remember with deep appreciation, the interest and helpfulness of the faculty, with gratitude the opportunities for knowledge and skill given us by the Con- servatory, and with fondness the lasting friendships which will always keep us close In spirit to one another. May the class of 1946 graduate in peace! Betty Ruth Smith, President COMMENCEMENT To you my friend, I offer here a thought, A memory that endless knowledge taught. You leave these halls to roam a world untrue To portals of success, that steeper grew As through this false world ' s veil of thin veneer Your guide is gone, and yet the way is clear. Your time is passed, the looking back, the yearning. Those years of friendship, old and golden learning Are far behind, and yet while memory spinning, Remember, forsooth, Commencement is but yet a young beginning.

Ciass Wii( 1946 — We do hereby bequeath to the class of 1946 our electrically heated mittens for practicing purposes in cold rooms. 1947 — We do hereby suggest that an annual Arbor Day be set aside by the ensueing class of ' 47 for the purpose of camouflaging our coal pile campus in the rear. 1948 — To the class of 1948 we leave real, live crockery to replace the cardboard utensils in the cafeteria! 1949 — Our most beloved alarm clock we leave to the class of ' 49 with our best wishes that they make all of their 9 o ' clock classes. (For two bucks, the Back Bay Jewelers will make that alarm work.) 1950 — To the class of 1950 we fondly will our slide rules. Maybe you can read them. We never could! 1 ! 1951 — To the class of ' 5! we leave our Bible, acquired in English Lit. We may not have been stirred religiously by it, but we certainly learned its value and worth as a literary . . . masterpiece. 1952 — To the class of 1952, we leave all left handed rubbers and right footed gloves found by our esteemed Marie in her cloak room. 1953 — To the class of ' 53 we leave a hot house for its budding geniuses in order to protect them from the stark realities of corridor life.

I in their midst. SOCIETY SECTION — RICHMOND. VA.. " BLAH " 1955 Professor JEAN ELLERSON. " 45 N. E. C. of Music, recently held an amazing class reunion on the palatial grounds of her southern plantation — " Ellersonian Insti- tute " ? ? ? Mint juleps and gossip were passed from hand to mouth. Lounging comfortably In the rock garden. SONA ARZOMANIAN was seen dis- cussing plans for the opening of her new music and photography shoppe! TAKOUHI CHORBAJIAN is to provide the musical atmosphere, creating the mood for Sona ' s portrait specialties. Among their clients will be FUNG YUEN FUNG recently re- turned from China where she has been engaged in rehabilitation work. MARGARET BROMLEY. BARBARA FOSS. and MARIAN JAQUES, travelled stupendous distances from their respective positions as " Supe ' s of Music " to be on hand for this momentous occasion. FRANCISCO DA COSTA and TONI ROFFO now appearing with the New World Civic Symphony were spotted strolling among the magnificent Ellerson nas- turtium bushes. We were fortunate in having with us ALICE FARNSWORTH and NANCY TRICKEY of the Metropolitan Opera Co. VINNIE PEPE who still retains her candid camera enthusiasm was seen taking action snaps of MURIEL ROBINSON ' S " pride and joy. " and PHYLISS KNOX ' S latest addition. BESSIE ROUVALIS flew in from Gloucester where she has been serving as super- visor of music and has attained great fame because of her success in teaching rote songs In Greek! BETTY RUTH SMITH, who has been spending her time since graduation on Bridge research, assured us that the publication of her latest book " How to win at Bridge and lose your money " or " You can ' t Hurt Anyone with a Grand Slam, " is just around the corner. Speaking of literary notables. Prof. ALICE DUCKWORTH. (B of Mus, A, C. G. Z, X, Y and Q) better known as " Ducky, " was caught auctioning off her most recently published book. " Practice Teaching Made Easy " or " Murder Is not Encouraged in the State. " BARBARA WEINSTEIN and JACK BASCO were her first customers. ASENATH PEARTH and HELENE DAVIS motored down as the guests of LIZ LAMBERT and STAN KIRTON who are now on the music faculty of Canada Lee ' s " College of Shakespearean Knowledge. " In the evening after a sumptuous repast of corn bread and southern fried har- mony, the entire party adjourned to the music room where a few of our now famous colleagues performed. Among them were GEORGETTE BERUBE of the N. Y. Philharmonic Orchestra; ROSE PALMERIE and MARJORIE DUVAL both of the Chicago Opera Co. and BETTY WOOD of the Minneapolis Symphony. As a climax to the evening ' s festivities MERIE HAGGANS, currently starring In Hollywood sang an aria written by TONI CIRELLA and accompanied by the famous St. Paul ' s organist. DOT ROBINSON. Such a marvelous time was held by all that plans are already In progress for a similar reunion to be held in 1975 at our old stamping grounds — the N. E. C. cafeteria. " Divinity that shapes our ends Rough hew them how we will " — 20 — WHO CARES — WE ' RE THROUGH By Alice Duckworth (Dedicated to our long suffering seniors) We came to school at dawn ' s early light With faces befogged and eyes not too bright We ' d been cramming and bulling and creating a stew. But who cares — my dears — As seniors — we ' re through. We stopped at the Gainsy for a cig and a colie That is — If pater had sent us a check and we all weren ' t too broke. Then off to our 9 o ' clock ' s at half past the hour To thrill our dear profs with our lack of mental power. We practiced here and we practiced there We heard seniors curse and juniors swear The underclass groaned, they felt so blue But who cares — my dears As seniors — we ' re through. We felt the long arm of World War II In our heatless rooms and our fingers so blue We crusaded for heat — so they turned out the light And our coal pile in the rear was the new campus site. We sincerely tried to do our best But the hours were long and there was no rest So now that it ' s over We ' re happy and yet blue But who cares? Why no one does As seniors — we ' re through! AFTER WILLIE S. Friends, Teachers, Classmates lend me your ears; I come to bury the past, not to praise it. The evil class does lives after it. The good is oft Intured with their bills So let It be with us. Our noble profs Have said we seemed ambitious If it were so, It was a splendid gift And splendidly today we are rewarded. Is this a degree which i see before me? It ' s ribbon In my hand. Come let me clutch thee I have thee not and yet I know I will. Art thou not, lovely vision sent to me To be my own today? Or art thou but That ideal of my mind, that fair creation Long cherished in my study (?) worked brain? Class notes, sweet friends, let me stir you not To any sudden show of sympathy! They that have signed our rank cards were generous And so were they all — wise and generous And now our hour has come — our parting hour For every thought of the future, that should move The least of us to greater, stronger effort! Classmates, this Is goodbye! Take each what course thou wilt! BALLAD TO THE SEA I heard the mighty ocean roar. While standing on the lonely shore. The eternal sound of Neptune ' s child. Restless, boundless, mighty, wild. As there I gazed with magic wonder, I felt a presence with a voice like thunder. The very spirit of the sea, Had left its home to walk with me. And now when in my heart I hear, That roaring echo strong and clear. My heart is still with wonder filled. Like waves which never can be stilled.
