SENIOR CLASS PLAY
“SEljr Syousr £fext Boor”
By J. Hartley Manners
A vital comedy which elucidates without prejudice the meaning of the interacia! feeling existing between Jew and Gentile. The author shows with sincerity of purpose the inevitable surrender of the right thinking aristocrat to the growing spirit of democracy.
Sir John Cotswold has lost his fortune. Everything that is left of the wreck is mortgaged to a recently knighted Jew, Sir Isaac Jacobson, who lives next door. Lady Cotswold and their daughter Ulrica quietly and unknown to him have maintained the Cotswold Park Mansion in London by designing dresses and making translations. 1 he old aristocrat is so bitter towards the Jews, so imbued with a sense of the dignity of birth that even the triumph of his son Cecil as a grand opera singer in a world so plebeian as the stage only serves to irritate and anger him. Cecil returns home in the midst of his triumph to find that Esther Jacobson still loves him as she did in their early youth. He finds his sister Ulrica has come to love Esther’s brother Adrian. After many stormy scenes between Sir John and every one concerned, it all ends well.

One of the greatest losses that the Peru State Normal has ever experienced was the passing away of Mrs. Elizabeth Crawford, August 28, 1916. Little did we realize when we closed the year’s work that when school opened again, she would not he with us. We miss the cheer of her bright, happy face, but her beautiful, helpful spirit will always hover not only about us here, but will be an inspiration in many schoolrooms where her students have gone.
Memorial services held at chapel September 25, 1916, were attended by her many Peru friends in town as well as school. The chapel platform was decorated with delicate ferns and flowers, some of which had been cared for , j by her own hands.
After a beautiful vesper hymn Rev. C. A. Carmen, i' led in the devotions. President Hayes spoke of her
strength of character, her tremendous energy, and her high ideals of life. Miss Perkins’ tribute emphasized her tenderness, sympathy, courage, and patience. “My happiest memory of Mrs. Crawford is the joy that she felt in her work, both with the children ami the students. She was of invaluable help to all members of the training department and she was as tactful and sympathetic as she was helpful. Although her classes required groups of children from every grade and brought her into relationship with every critic, yet there was only mutual interest and good will among us all. Her understanding of conditions was so complete and her willingness to sacrifice her own convenience to the need, so pervading, that nothing but harmony could result. e shall miss her hourly as a friend and a leader among us." Dean Rouse spoke with much feeling and appreciation of her devoted spirit of service and her helpful attitude toward all members of the training department. He closed his remarks with the following tribute. “For years Mrs. Crawford has had the peculiar task of inculcating the underlying principles of instruction and stimulating a desire to be skillful in the teaching act. How well she has ftdfilled that task! Her wide readings, her open-mindedness, for the best in methodology, her careful preparation, her inspiring illustrative recitations made it possible for her to place upon our graduates the stamp of a teacher. To her, I say without doubt, more than to any other person belongs the credit for the peculiar success that has marked the great mass of Peruvians. Y hen inquiring superintendents shall ask teachers, ‘Where gained you your power? they shall gladly say, ‘When in the halls of old Peru we met a consecrated teacher who showed us the great white way of service and taught us to so adjust our teachings that truth should be thrown upon the screen of consciousness in beautiful colors. e shall miss the inspiration of her calm face, the wisdom of her sane counsel, and no one more than 1 and those of us who have toiled with her in this department. Let us think of her this morning sitting at the feet of the Master teacher of the ages.
