CLASS DAY PAGEANT
OUR little nymphs in green chiffon joyously proclaimed the arrival of Perse-
phone to the earth. Bringing as she does a trail'of springtime atmosphere
with her, a celebration in her honor is a meet subject for a June day.
The Pageant last Class Day, June 5, 1928, Was put on by Miss Smith With the
assistance of Vivian Vassau and the art department. In immitation of a Greek
festival, its theme was Spring and the joy of the earth, with Persephone and
Ceres Dlaving their svmbolic roles.
Dawn, as danced by a group of girls, showed the morning of Persephones
arrival, with the misty, shadowy world gradually awakening to life. A tumbling
and acrobatic dance portrayed the happiness of peasants and townspeople at the
first signs of spring. A scarf dance and a sacrificial dance with Greek music
and costumes carried out with an atmosphere of consecration the theme of the
pageant. The dancing was ended with an evening prayer, in Sunset.
The conception and staging of a pageant of this nature with its appropriate
theme added much to the beauty and impressiveness of the exercises.

confreres, the hero, Robert Bennett, who undertook to tell nothing but the truth
for twenty-four hours. Walter Pearson played the part of the hero very well.
Jack Davison, Donald Olson, and Robert Smith as the implicated business men
furnished strong support.
Theodore Goble, as the impetuous, not-too-orthodox bishop, gave much of the
comic relief. His individualistic method of gaining contributions for his church
by the display of vocal strength was a clever touch that added interest. Through-
out the action Vivian Vassau, Lillian Clark, and Helen Hughes played their parts
well. Evelyn Sansburn, as the ttpoor, sweet girl" Who couldngt play, and Agnes
McClurg, and Agnes Neppl, as sophisticated sirens out gold-digging, led to a string
of difficulties through prevarication. All-in-all, the play was well conceived and
