Miss Dyde and Miss Fisher, as representatives of the staff, gave an outline of the work attempted by Societies of previous years and many helpful sugges¬ tions to guide initial steps of our procedure. The following capable executive was chosen to carry on the work for the year: President_Miss Katherine Grow Vice-President_Miss ' Margaret Lang Secretary-Treasurer--Winston Cooper Later in the year Miss Grow, finding the work too great a burden along with her other activities, resigned her position as presi¬ dent. For the remainder of the term the position was ably filled by Miss Lang. Mr. Loucks selected several plays, parts of which were read by the students at the next meeting. It was decided that a play en¬ titled “The Ring” should be prepared and presented at the February meeting. The cast consisted of Miss Katherine Grow, Mrs. Cook, Miss Dodd, Messrs. Davison, Winston Cooper, Bert Redding, Dave Smith, Eric Buskins, J. Maxwell, L. Mogridge, S. Weller, 0. Kelley, and all played their parts in a most commendable manner. After the New Year, at a series of meetings held in the Cafe¬ teria, the works of three of the leading modern dramatists were studied. Miss Dyde’s clever and amusing talk on the work of A. A. Milne was enthusiastically received by the students. Miss Fisher presented selections from J. M. Barrie’s plays in such a charming- fashion as to endear the author and his characters to everyone present. Miss Simons gave a paper on Bernard Shaw, which was both ' interest¬ ing and instructive. As a result of these informative and inspiring addresses members of the Society had the desire to study in detail the works of the above mentioned dramatists. The final and most important production for the year was given Friday, April 8th in the Normay School Auditorium,.
