The Dramatic Club, one of the most exclusive organizations in the Normal School, owing to the fact that but sixty persons may be elected to membership during a semester, is recognized as an important factor in school life. This Club was organized by Mrs. Xettlcton at the beginning of the school + year 1908-09 and for four years, under her efficient management, has made
its influences widely felt and has done much toward creating a higher appreciation of dramatic art. The fact that she found it necessary to give up her position as instructor in the Department of Expression and as adviser of this, dub was deplored by faculty and students alike, but the stamp of her personality and her ambitions and ideals will be a source of inspiration to all those who were so fortunate as to be her friend.
Soon after her withdrawal, Miss Ruby Ferguson came to take up the work of that Department, and is our present adviser. Miss Ferguson has shown her ability in this capacity by her intense earnestness in the work. Although she has been with us only a short time, she has won the esteem of her pupils and friends, and we feel assured that club interest will not be lacking so long as she remains at its head.
On Hallowe’en eve, the first play, "The Burglars,” was given; after which a social time was enjoyed. Other plays presented during the year were scenes from “Romeo and Juliet,” and the little comedies, “When Greek Meets Greek,” "The Kleptomaniac,” "A Blind Attachment,” and “The Open Gate.”
In addition to the plays given, the club was fortunate in securing a prominent reader, Miss Evelyn Thomas, of Oxford University, who entertained us with her superb rendition of "Elcctra.” One of the greatest dramatic productions of the year occurred in April, when Mr. DcMille’s football drama, "Strong ■Heart,” was presented in the Normal Chapel. The cast was particularly strong and the interpretation a triumph of dramatic art.

I he German Club is made up of German students and friends of the department. It affords an opportunity for acquiring conversational “Deutsch,” since no English is spoken at the meetings. On account of the increased imi-gration from the "Vatcrland" into this country, greater interest is being taken in tlic study of German, hence the gradual growth of the Club from year to year.
I'vice each month this "Vercin" spends an evening in complete relaxation from work. Real German friendliness and good feeling prevail among its members. Interesting programs, which acquaint those in attendance with the best German writers and composers, are given. As often as seems advisable special social features add to the enjoyment of these meetings. Chief among these is the observance of the “Weilmachts Test." Though of shorter duration than in Germany, it is none the less imbued with the same spirit.
“Den glucklichen- Erfolg unseres Vereins Jcrdankcn wir unserem Hcrrn Professor Whitcnack, dessen Milfe und holier Einfluss Vie! Achtung fur das Deutsche bringt.”
