Class Play Sophomore (Hass lay— A.s $?ou Hike Ut WILLI AM SI IAKKSPEARE The Sophomore Class chose “As You Like It” for their class play because of its fittingness in dedicating the new Auditorium. The play was presented according to the William Warren edition. It is very delightful and is just like a summer vacation. There is an open air feeling about this play and one hears the waving forest boughs and the forest streams of Arden, where “They fleet the time carelessly, as they did in the Golden World". "Sweet are the uses of adversity”, moralizes the banished Duke, and external material adversity has come to him, to Rosalind, and to Orlando; but if fortune is harsh, nature—both external nature and human character—is sound and sweet, and of real suffering there is none in the play. All that is evil remains in the society which the denizens of the forests have left behind; and both seriously, in the characters of the usurping Duke and Oliver, and playfully, through Touchstone’s mockery of court follies, a criticism on what is evil and artificial in society is suggested in contrast with the woodland life; yet Shakespeare never falls into the conventional pastoral manner. Orlando is an ideal of youthful strength, beauty, and noble innocence of heart; and Rosalind’s bright, tender womanhood seems but to grow more exquisitely feminine in the male attire which she has assumed in self-defense. Possessed of a delighted consciousness of power to confer happiness, she can dally with disguises, and make what is most serious to her at the same time possess the charm of an exquisite frolic. 'I'hc melancholy Jaqucs is charged by the Duke with having been a libertine; he has certainly tasted all manner of experiences, but not very earnestly pursued either good or evil. He is a sentimentalist, and in some degree a superficial cynic. Yet the duke loves his company, and at the last can ill part with him, when to try one newer experience Jaqucs will join the Duke’s brother, who has put on a religious life. Jaqucs is not a bad hearted egoist, but he is a perfect idol seeker for new sensations and an observer of his own feelings; he is weary of all that he has found, and especially professes to despise the artificial society which yet he never really escapes from, as the others do. His wisdom is half foolery, as Touchstone's foolery is half wisdom. Because the characters arc of different types, the entrance of each gets the attention of the audience. In the end everything happens "as you like it". THE CAST Rosalind ....... Celia .......... 1‘hoclic ....... Audrey ......... Orlando ........ Touchstonc ... Oliver .........

Society Ot)£ Jfrestjmari-Sopbomore banquet Friday, April 13, 1923, has passed, and with it has gone one of the most happy and successful evenings spent in Peru. This was the day of the Freshman-Sophomore Banquet. It may he that there were sighs of relief from the Freshmen, but there were undoubtedly many more sighs of contentment and exclamations of admiration. 'Flic Freshmen first assembled their guests in the kindergarten room, which by the use of rugs, furniture, and ferns, had been transformed into an inviting reception room. Then Mr. Boren, Master of Ceremonies, formed the line of march, and to the strains of sweet music we were led into a phantom of delight. It was a fairy-land garden in far-away Japan. The roof was made of wisteria vines and moss, and beyond the lattice work were rows of blossoming cherry trees. And then a touch of real Japan was added. At the entrance into the garden was a pagoda, covered by vines of wisteria. The tables were illumed by tall amber candles, and favors of slant eyed Japanese Maidens stood at each plate. The Menu prepared and served by the Domestic Science Department was a typical example of their efficiency and skill. The courses were served by fair maidens of Japan, dressed in their native costume. They did their work to music in an orderly and rhythmic manner, thus making it a pleasurable task. The following courses were served: Amber Cocktail Roast Chicken Oyster Dressing Mashed Potatoes French Peas Olives Buttered Rolls 1923 Salad Wafers Maple Nut Ice Cream Cake Coffee Mints The first number of the evening, given immediately after the guests were seated, was a “Butterfiy Dance” by Mary Shirley Holch and Opal Cowell, performed in a true butterfly fashion. Music was furnished throughout the evening by the Faculty Orchestra. In addition to these numbers were two vocal solos by Miss Esther Blankenship, and two violin solos bv Mr. Vladimir Jisa, appreciated and enjoyed by all. Finally after the coffee and mints had been served the Jinrikisha Man from the land of the rising sun, introduced the speakers of the evening. He was none other than Mark Delzell, the Toastmaster. Skillfully he guided us through the evening and acquainted us with his followers, who addressed us thus: "Okaeri” ......................................................Mr. M. Bell, ’24 "Odenasi” .....................................................Mr. C. Clark, ’23 “Omedato” ..................................................................Pres. Cavincss “Irrashi” .....................................................Miss D. Pettit, ’23 “Chon Chon”....................................................Miss M. Miller, ’24 “Sagonara” ..........................................................Miss G. Tear “Naruhodo”, which was to have been given by Colonel Majors, was left untold because of his absence. The evening was brought to a happy and successful close, and left the tic of friendship between these classes more firm and true. One Hundred Thirty-seven
