SENIOR CLASS PLAY.
Tennyson’s “The Foresters” was given on Saturday evening. May 30. by tiie Class of 08. 'This beautiful Robin Hood tale with its touch of love and romance was given in Sherwood Glade, a natural stage on the hillside, with a beautiful background of moss-grown ledges and verdant foliage.
This play is essentially a romantic comedy. It has a forest setting with hardy outlaws, beggars, friars, knights, witches, and fairies, living out their lives in keeping with the time of Richard I.
The lovers. Marian Lea and Robin Hood. Earl of Huntington, plighted faith on the evening of Robin’s banishment.

It is a story of love sacrificing itself to duty, of courage and honor in a corrupt age. It charms by its freshness, sweetness, cleanliness, and by its strong wholesome humanity: it entertains by its merrymaking in the wildwood. by its spirit, its repartee, its song, its fairy spell. Its atmosphere is most contagious— its smiles and tears are ours.

The Charge of the Thesis Brigade.
Second semester’s come, Commencement draws near,
Down in the theory room The Seniors appear.
“Forward the Thesis Brigade!
Choose now your themes,” she said. Into the library
Marched the brave Seniors.
Books to the right of them,
Books to the left of them.
Books piled in front of them.
Outlines they’ve written.
Then at last, one by one,
Back thru the files they come,
Back thru the files, but not—
Xot the same outlines.
Red ink at top of page.
Red ink at side of page,
Red ink all o’er the page,
Marked all their blunders.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do or die.
Back to the library
Marched the poor Seniors.
“Forward the Thesis Brigade!”
Was there a one dismayed ?
Xot though the Seniors knew Some would have grumbled,
Yet none their zeal could quell.
Boldly they wrote, and well,
Xe’er on this earth did dwell More noble Seniors.
When can their glory fade?
C), the orations they made!
All the school wondered.
Honor the record they made,
Honor the Thesis Brigade,
Xoblc, brave Seniors.

manding, gives us an attractive type of true womanhood. Set in its outdoor stage the play is unusually fascinating. It is one of the most unique class plays ever given at the Normal.
Miss Amelia F. Lucas, head of the department of reading and expression, had entire charge of the rendition of the play and much thanks and praise are due her for her tireless efforts in training the members who took part in this, one of the most unique and attractive of Tennyson’s productions.
