QUT? THEME The subject for the commencement program this year should be one of special interest since it is concerned mainly with the growth and development of the city of Norwich. The Eagle l-lotel has been chosen as the setting because ol its historical background, which should interest every native of Norwich. Most of the incidents are truly historical with the exception of minor fictitious events and people. The product ofthe bool4worms oi the senior class this year is a historical play in four acts. Each act represents a separate period in this work of art portraying the developemnt of Norwich. The First act talces place alter the original Eagle Tavern was constructed by the Steere Family in 'l8O'I. The First marriage in Norwich livens the scene and is per- formed by a justice oi the peace appointed lor the occasion. The burning ol the original Eagle l-lotel occurs during the second act. This happened on the morning of July 4, 1849. During that period many new indus- tries sprang up, such as the Nlaydole l-lammer Factory, l-layes and Rider piano factory and a blast Furnace company. Act three brings the play up to the Civil War period when there was much ac- tivity in Norwich. The Eagle is the center of all recruiting, so business is thriving. CA plot is introduced concerning the drafting of a very young boy and is completed by a short speech.D Theodore Roosevelt enters the picture in act four, which is the period of the gay nineties. This Flowery period brings in a vaudeville show which gives the act a lively color. To carry out this program the art staff of the Archive has devoted its space to illustrations of Norwich life connected with the pageant.
