10 " TLhe Mellesles College mews Entered at the Post Offce n Wellesley, Mass., as second-class matter. VOL. XX. WELLESLEY, OCTOBER 5, No. 1 THE TYRANT. F Robert Lawrence had been thnkng at all of hmself as he stepped ofpthe suburban street car at hs home corner, he would have agreed wth Caesar that t was better to be frst n a lttle Tberan vllage than second n Rome. For as he walked unconcernedly by the other passengers, all eyes turned toward hm, and more than one woman went out of her way to speak to hm. Born and bred n the small suburb, he was gven the admraton due ts most successful product. Moreover, hs popularty had stll another foundaton. He possessed now all the power and balance that comes to a former "black-sheep" of a neghborhood after he has toned down and succeeded by proper applcaton of hs energy. Ths fact, that n hs boyhood he had been a lttle wld, served not only to mantan n hm a certan nterest, but also gave hs elders, who had n the past grown accustomed to hs dsconcertng sense of humor, that delghtful chance to say, " I told you n the end he'd come out on top." Thus Robert was an object of unversal respect, held up as a reproach to all lazy chldren, and as an deal by the ambtous. He was now unconscous of the favor he enjoyed, however, for as he started out n the drecton of hs house, he was wonderng why he had not been met at hs car. Yet there was no sgn of dsappontment on hs face, only surprse and, perhaps, even a lttle relef, a lttle pleasure n the curosty aroused. "It's the frst tme," he sad to hmself, "that she's not been there, standng n that dentcal spot watng for me, wth the same smle to welcome me. Thnk of t; the same woman, the same place, the same smle every day for three years! It's even too bg to count," and he sghed over the enormty of the problem. "Why, t's a red-letter day, t's vacaton to-nght!" he concluded. Hs steps became lghter at the thought, and there was vsble an almost youthful joy n the breakng of a custom. As he approached the large stone house that was hs, however, the object of hs thoughts came down to meet hm. She made such a pretty pcture, walkng slowly toward hm through the trees wth her soft dress rpplng just slghtly n the wnd, that, out of pure justce, he was forced to admt, "She s beautful, and the smle really s lovely, only "I'm sorry I ddn't get down to the car," she began, as she joned hm and they entered the house together, "t's the frst tme I haven't, sn't t? But Mrs. Dunlap was telephonng me and I couldn't get away." Hs atttude had changed now from curosty to hs accustomed ar of polte, rather dstant solctude. "It was a surprse, I admt," he repled. "What were you and Mrs. Dunlap so absorbed n?" "Oh, she just wanted me to come over ths evenng. Mr. Dunlap s away and she thought you were." "And you told her?" "That you were home and I wouldn't go." Chrstne uttered the last n a tone of surprse as f, of course, he could not have expected her to do otherwse. But her husband was sufferng from dsappontment and was rrtated. What he thought was to be an rregularty n the day's routne had turned out to be only a further example of t's nevtable, monotonous smoothness, and, wth a slght frown, he broke out mpulsvely, "Chrstne, why must you always be thnkng of me and my wants? You owe somethng to yourself, you know. You stll have an ndvdualty even f you are marred." Hs tone was weary, almost mpatent, and for a moment there was a look of nfnte pan on Chrstne's face. She conquered t mmedately though, and resumng her natural manner, went on,, "You are tred, Robert. Perhaps after dnner you had better go rght to bed, and I wll read to you." "No, I have work to do ths evenng," he answered. "Forgve me for speakng to you as I dd, but I am worred over the pece of busness I have to fnsh. I wsh you would go over to Mrs. Dunlap's. You see I wll be busy, and she probably needs you to-nght." "Very well, I wll. You're certan you can't leave your work tll to-morrow? You look qute worn out." He assured her that he could not, and they went nto the dnng-room together. It was a large, softcolored, restful room wth noseless carpets and doors, and the dnner, as usual, was served wthout the slghtest rub. Robert never had to ask for anythng. Hs every want was antcpated as promptly as those of any of the happy mortals that had ther meals served by wtchcraft. Conversaton also was of a smooth, gentle ven. "I had a splendd letter from Dck ths mornng," Chrstne announced after a pause; "he's dong so well. He sad to-day he was afrad, f nothng came to nterfere, that he'd have

11 . Robert " THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS to get some knd of a laud wth hs dploma." Her husband had taken a new nterest at the menton of Dck's name, and he returned almost eagerly, "Oh, that's rght. He graduates ths sprng, doesn't he? Thnk of t! He certanly has kept hmself well down at hs studes n college. I never expected hm to he always used to lke to play so much n school." Chrstne saw her usual opportunty. "Well, you see, he's so grateful to you for gvng hm the chance," she sad. "I guess he realzed the only course for hm to take. In_every letter he talks so much of hs grattude and respect for you, and what a fne brother-n-law you ndcated hs dspleasure wth ths topc by an mpatent wave of hs hand. "I'm not puttng the boy through college from any benevolent mpulse," he declared. "We've always been good frends too good for hm, I'm afrad, when we were n school. Do you remember the awful pranks I used to get hm to do wth me?" An nfnte change came over Chrstne at ths recallng of the past. It was as though she were suddenly emancpated from all the dutes and responsbltes of the present. "Remember them?" she asked smlng. "Do you thnk I could ever forget those sleepless nghts? Why, you know I used to spend all my tme prayng that you would reform." "Well, I guess f you hadn't, I never should have gotten through the grammar school. But you always used to stand up for me. I remember how the other boys used to wsh they had some ntercessor lke you who would go up to the teacher before she gave out the punshment and plead for them. Even you had to work pretty hard, though, the tme I set the schoolhouse on fre, ddn't you?" Robert, too, had forgotten the present wth ts rrtatng monotony n the exctement of the past, and the two went on remndng each other of further momentous events, forgetful of tme and crcumstances, untl fnally Chrstne, wth a glance at the clock, saw that t was tme for her to start on her vst. The transton was as dsllusonng as that from a happy dream to an unpleasant realty. In another moment her atttude of constant, rreproachable thoughtfulness took possesson of her, and wth a fnal plea, "Please don't work too hard, Robert," she was gone. For a whle her husband remaned leanng back n hs char, absorbed. Thoughts of Chrstne how she used to be and how she was now were runnng through hs head, and he could not rd hmself of them. "I suppose," he mused, "that she s what you would call an deal wfe thoughtful beyond the dctates of any conscence I ever dreamed of absolutely no mnd for anythng but me. Dck, of course she thnks of, but even he s subordnated to me. I suppose I mght feel flattered f I ddn't realze too well how we couldn't help marryng each other. That's the trouble wth thngs that are all mapped out for you from the begnnng." He had become too mpatent now to st stll any longer, so he got up and began to pace the floor heavly, sometmes wrnklng hs forehead over an uncomfortable dea, sometmes talkng aloud to hmself. He had grown n the custom of argung thus audbly, for really one must have some sympathetc lstener, and he found hmself hs only avalable one. "And s t my fault that she rather grates on me that I don't love her?" he asked. "Is t because she has spoled me and made me thnk only of my own feelngs?" Ths was the queston that was always affrontng hm, but now for the frst tme he answered t decsvely. Stoppng n the route he had made for hmself around the room, he declared, wth a tone of fnalty, "No, t s not my How can a man be expected to love a mere fault. servant, a mere tool? For she hasn't the slghtest personalty of her own. The only thng she lves for s to please me and to do what she thnks s her duty by me. Perhaps," he paused a moment, "perhaps f she loved me, t would be dfferent. Then she would have some real ndvdualty that I could love, but I suppose the very nevtableness of our marrage prevented that. And yet she used to and I used to love her, and I stll do when we get to talkng about when we were chldren. Everythng was so natural then, untl people, even our own famles, got to talkng about our marrage as a matter of course, and that klled everythng." Robert had by now worn hmself out wth thnkng and pacng, so he flung hmself helplessly down nto hs char to rest. How long he stayed there wth hs head thrown back, lookng dly about hm, he could not tell, but he was suddenly aroused by the sound of footsteps on the porch, and before he had tme to wonder, the door opened, a sut-case was dropped n the hall, and a loud, boysh voce called, "Robert, where are you?" In another moment he had jumped up and rushed nto the hall. "Dck," he cred, all eagerness, shakng both the boy's hands strenuously, "my, but I'm glad to see you. What lucky chance brngs you home so soon?" So complete was hs joy at seeng hs brother-nlaw that the possble reason for hs comng dd not bother hm. It was not untl the pleasure on Dck's face began to change to a more serous, worred look that t occurred to hm somethng unpleasant mght be the cause. Dck had taken off hs coat and hat n slence, and then, leadng the older man by the arm and usherng hm nto the lbrary, he sad earnestly, "Robert, I've a sad story to tell you sad because I'm afrad when I get through you'll

12 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. thnk I'm one of the most ungrateful asses that ever lved. But now f you wll kndly make yourself comfortable n ths armchar," pushng hm nto t as he spoke, "and lght a new cgar, I wll try to make out my case as favorable as possble, and wll narrate," he concluded dramatcally, "the story of a mserable, human lfe." The other man had allowed hmself to be dctated to, and now found that he was leanng back n the char, lookng up n admraton at the tall, straght fgure n front of hm. Dck hestated a mnute to choose the rght words, and then, lookng drectly at the other, began: "Supposng for awhle that there was a boy, brought up n the strctest knd of a way, and that there had always been somethng n hm that chafed away at the walls and wanted to get out, and whch, I may add, dd get out once or twce. Supposng, further, that hs famly was very ntmate wth one where there was an older boy, whom he, n the manner of most small boys, worshped and followed n everythng he dd." He stopped a moment and then, "Supposng," he contnued, " that after a few years the boy's father and mother ded and he had no one left but one sster, whom ths older boy marred. Well, then, supposng because there was no alternatve for hm and because " Robert started to nterrupt the speaker here, but Dck motoned hm to be quet. "Supposng, out of kndness or benevolence or whatever you want to call t, the older boy, who s a man now, nvted the other to come and lve wth hm and promsed to send hm to college and to do everythng else he could for hm. Then supposng the boy accepted and went off to college wth the best ntentons n the world. He felt just bound down by hs grattude and duty, for, of course, he had to make the most of hs chances. You can well magne that ths feelng was not the most gratfyng one n the world, anyway," Dck's tone became more pleadng here, "for t's not very pleasant to feel that you're beng patronzed, no matter how much you lke your benefactor. But supposng, further, that ths sster of the boy's kept drvng ths feelng deeper and deeper n, wrtng hm letters flled wth nothng but exhortatons to work, and duty and responsblty, for she was, we're magnng, the eptome of conscentousness." Dck wated to see what effect ths bold clmax would have on hs lstener, but Robert had decded to be slent tll the end and, contentedly blowng rngs, offered no crtcsm. Dck was not encouraged. Hs case, after all, dd not seem very favorable now that he presented t n plan, unembellshng words, and, shftng hs poston, he asked abruptly, "Do you want me to go on?" The other nodded. "Well, supposng ths boy we may as well go through to the end now got so plagued tred of havng hs duty and grattude drummed nto hm by hs sster that one day, just a lttle whle before he was to graduate, the last straw came, and he, wth some other fellows, dd well, I won't tell you what he dd but, t was enough to expel hm from college." Dck had closed hs eyes durng these last words, the latter comng out slowly but decsvely, and now, stll wthout lookng at Robert, "What," he concluded, " knowng as you do the hstory of the boy, would you say to hm?" He had scarcely had tme to fnsh and to wonder what effect he had produced, before he was aroused by a tremendous clap on the back, and Robert, contnung to beat hm, was hurlng a whrlwnd of words at hm, such as, "I'd say he was splendd, perfect, a blessng from heaven, that he'd saved my lfe! Oh, Dck, f you knew how you've helped me! Somethng human and unordnary and momentous has happened at last!" He was as excted now as he used to be when nvolved n one of hs schoolday explots, and Dck, though releved, could do nothng but gasp n surprse and snk weakly nto a char. "No, I'm not qute crazy," contradcted the other, "but f you had lved three years wth no one but a mnsterng angel to talk to and then suddenly found a kndred, errng sprt, perhaps t would almost drve you mad." Dck had begun to comprehend now^and rose abruptly n hs char, cryng, "Do you mean to say she's affected you the same way? that you don't care for grattude or duty any more than I do? Oh, say you don't!" "Care for them! Why, man, they're the destroyers of the unverse, the devastators of human nature. I don't see, myself, how you kept from murderng me wth all ths talk about your lvng up to your responsbltes. But I never wanted to patronze you. It was a wholly selfsh mpulse of mne to get you to lve wth us. You ddn't accuse me of beng a slave to duty, dd you? dd you?" repeatng hmself as the greater possblty of t began to occur to hm. "Why, yes, I rather thought so," Dck admtted, ' ' I guess I thought everyone was except me. Then t's just Chrstne," he went on slowly, as the revelaton came to hm, "that's been weavng all ths web of trouble Chrstne, the sant and the prze of the suburb! Why, everyone thnks you're the luckest man on earth because she's always cared for no one but you. What's the matter wth her, Robert?" They had sobered down now, and, takng chars, began to talk serously. "Why, I thnk the trouble wth her, f you can call t trouble," Robert sug-

13 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. gested after a pause, "s that she doesn't love or hate or scorn or pty or admre a sngle soul. She smply does what she thnks she ought to. She marred me only because our famles were ntmate and t was her father's last wsh that she should. Then, too, she seems to feel a tremendous amount of grattude to me for puttng up wth your presence, and as a result, she's just ntolerably knd to me. Oh, Dck, you'll forgve me for talkng lke ths you must know how t s, and ths s the frst tme I've ever expressed myself." "Don't you thnk I've acted n a way that shows I understand? But what" Dck became a lttle apprehensve "do you thnk she'll say to my conduct?" "That's just the trouble," answered the other vehemently, almost btterly. "She'll spol t all. She won't show a sgn of any emoton, though probably she wll be nwardly shocked at you; but she'll rse to the occason and try to act as though nothng had happened, except that she'll be, f possble, even more thoughtful to me." Dck's face brghtened at ths dea. "Do you really beleve that? And are you sure?" They both stopped short, lstenng. Then Robert, realzng that Chrstne was comng, whspered hurredly, "Go meet her at the door and take her n the lbrary to tell her. I'll stay here." Dck looked a lttle reluctant, but jumped up and was n the hall the moment she entered. Robert heard the slght exclamaton of surprse, saw Dck lead her nto the lbrary and close the door, and from then on could only hear vaguely and ntermttently the sound of voces. He had no curosty concernng the outcome. Even though ths was the bggest thng that had happened snce ther marrage, he could antcpate ts result perfectly. Thngs would go on much n the same way. Dck would go nto busness, and Chrstne would contnue to meet hm at the car. But, absent as was any great feelng of nterest n the affar, Robert began to realze, by and by, that t was gettng to be a long tme that he had been watng for the others to return. In a lttle whle, long grew nto ntermnable, and he was about to get up to dscover the meanng of t when Dck appeared n the doorway, lookng worred and a lttle frghtened. "Robert," he sad, "we flattered ourselves that we were rather clever dscerners, but somewhere n our calculatng, somethng's wrong. Chrstne's calm exteror s entrely lackng." "What! she's been angry?" "No, not angry; she's lovely, but horrbly dsapponted. She's made me feel lke a crmnal." "Tell me; you don't mean to say that she?" "Yes, she's all broken up. She sad she'd be n n a mnute, but f I were you I'd go n to see her." Robert got up quckly, but then hestated. A varety of new feelngs were comng over hm, and though they were not essentally happy, he found a strange, keen pleasure n them. Watng a moment outsde the lbrary door, he fnally opened t wthout knockng, and Chrstne, who was on the sofa half lyng down, rased her head. Her face was as he had never seen t before. The eyes, a lttle msty, looked up at hm, ashamed, her cheeks were slghtly flushed, and for the frst tme he notced that the curves of her mouth were nfntely senstve. Here was no duty or self-control manfested only utter surrender to the one emoton, sorrow. As Robert walked over to her, feelng strangely transformed, she spoke. "Oh, why dd you come now? I ddn't want to see you tll I was ready." Her voce, too, seemed changed. "Because I wanted to," he answered confdently. "I had a rght to. Please don't mnd so much, Chrstne. Dck wll go nto busness and do splenddly. It really sn't such a bg thng, you know." Hs tone was pleadng, consolng, but she refused to be comforted. "Oh, t's not just that. It's the fact that I've spoled t all myself." "How have you spoled t all?" Robert was nterested to hear her reason. "Don't you see," she went on n a sudden burst of confdence, "that t's been just my eternal emphass on hs duty that has brought ths about? But I dd want hm so much to graduate wth honors lke you and to be well, n every way to be just lke you." "Lke me!" "Yes, exactly lke you," she repeated unscrupulously. "Don't you suppose that I've always realzed how splendd and brllant and altogether perfect you are?" She seemed to be unconscous of her words now, and leanng helplessly back on the sofa, talked on unrestranedly. Now that everythng was over, she mght just as well. Robert was overwhelmed. "How should I know that, Chrstne? You never loved me," and he looked at her curously. She offered no answer for some tme, and then faced hm mpulsvely. "Yes, I do love you," she contradcted; "I suppose t's a somewhat trte, bourgeos thng for a wfe to do, but I do, I do." She was almost defant. "Then why?" "Then why don't I show t?" she antcpated. "Because well, I guess there's no reason for keepng thngs back any more because I knew too well why you marred me. You ddn't really care for me, you know, and at frst I was mserable, absolutely mserable, but then, by and by, I began to

14 ' THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. realze that there was a pleasure I could have that anyone could have, no matter how unhappy and that was the satsfacton that comes from dong your duty." She stopped here, but Robert could do nothng but watch her, astounded, fascnated. "Don't you suppose," she contnued, "that I knew how you despsed me to be always lookng out for you, and don't you thnk t hurt me? And t was the same wth Dck, too. But you see t was the only pleasure I had ths selfsh feelng that I was dong everythng I ought to, and I had to have somethng. And now," she concluded brokenly, "see what t's come to! I can't go on n the same way any more after I've seen what awful thngs t can do, and so there's nothng left." She seemed worn out now, physcally and mentally, and made no further effort to contan herself. But Robert had by ths tme realzed everythng, and, gong over to her, sad, "Nothng left? Why, there's everythng left, dearest. We're just begnnng to understand each other. Oh, why ddn't you tell me all ths before?" She answered, n spte of her prde, "Because I knew you would just pty me, as you do now." "I tell you that I don't pty you," he contradcted vehemently. "I've always adored you when you're yourself. It's only when you're a slave to duty that I don't, and you can't be that any more. Why, Chrstne, t's an awful thng ths duty. It's the most exactng, subjugatng, domneerng tyrant on earth. When t once gets a hold on you t crowds everythng else out, and won't allow you to do anythng but serve t. As you say, t gves you a certan pleasure, but t denes you all other knds of joy. I tell you, t may be barbarsm to follow your own nstncts exclusvely, but t's nothng but pure mechansm to follow your duty exclusvely. Aren't you glad we've overthrown t at last? For my part, I wsh Dck had been expelled a couple of years sooner." Chrstne wnced, but smled as the new dea came to her. "Oh, Robert, oughtn't we to be grateful to hm?" she cred. And together they went out to fnd hm. Mldred Washburn, THE SONG OF THINGS. T was the knd of mornng that seems to sng. The scent of ploughed felds, and, very fantly, of the swollen, tumblng brook came n through the swayng curtans to where I sat by the baby's crb n my mother's room. The baby was frantcally n love wth the lfe he had just begun lvng, so that t was a physcal mpossblty for hs tred lttle body to stop ts playng unless a very quet person forced hm to t. I had been sttng by hm for half an hour, at frst tellng a story, then sngng qute ndustrously and galy, and fnally hummng. Now I knew very well that he was asleep; my hand, restng lghtly on hs lttle blue and whte apron, felt the quck, rythmc breathng of a sleepng chld. I knew, too, that my arthmetc was lyng on the ktchen table so that my mother could hear me say t whle she peeled the potatoes. I knew that my skppng-rope was watng on the back porch untl I could say all the rules about percentage. But stll I sat by the baby and notced how the sunlght, touchng hs lttle tousled head, had turned t nto a shmmer of gold; the only sound was the steady thud of Perre's stck as he beat the parlor carpet down by the brook. Suddenly, a mracle of sound! I slpped to the wndow and closed t, then tptoed hastly out of the room. The house was flled wth the musc of a hurdy-gurdy, and down-stars I heard quck steps and laughter. "Hush, oh, hush!" I cred, and ran nto the ktchen. There my mother, her bg blue apron whrlng about her, was pullng my lttle madcap brother around the room, n a gay abandonment of rythm. "Oh, we musn't wake Dcke, Bob," she laughed softly, as I burst n. "But we won't! Don't ' stop! And breathless lttle Bob jerked out, "Oh, t's rollcky! Lemme pull you, and le's go faster!" My mother gave us our frst dancng lesson then and there. That nght, after I had sad my prayers close by the wndow where the wllow tree reached n, my mother, lookng at the rustlng leaves, sad, "See, daughter! Your tree loves t as well as you dd. Everythng loves to dance and to sng." Snce then I have found that to be truer than guessed. Everythng does love to dance and to sng. There s a prncple of rythm wthn us that made our ancestors n some long-past age dscover the strange secret of makng songs. Probably they had t from men of stll remoter tme; perhaps the wnd and the sea taught t n the frst place. At any rate, songs began to be made roughly, at frst, wth the strange, steady beat that s n the heart of a man, or hs footfall, or the gong down of the sun,

15 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS day after day. Poetry arose, and musc, because of the nnate knowledge that we have of the purposes and laws of nature. They form the bond whch stll untes us wth nature n all the heat and artfcalty of our lvng, and lets us feel agan the beatng of the heart of nature as we used to feel t, ages ago. In the unversal musc of the world we may stll know ourselves to be part of the world-soul, chldren of sky and earth and water. There s a certan rythm about all the nevtable processes, the laws of nature. A necessary rythm, I thnk, and perhaps the very essence of nature. I st n the woods and the leaves are thck and green above me. The odor of dogwood and marsh margolds, the fne tracery of the brch leaves on the mold, the sudden song of a hermt-thrush everythng seems very new and wonderful. And yet I know that the world s made up of the new leaves of last summer and of many summers before that; I know that presently the leaves wll glow burnshed gold n the sun and then float, one by one, to the ground. After that, wnter then sprng agan and summer. So one may see n the forest how the world wags wth full glory and sudden wanng. The days go past lke that too, and the sngng sea; the great world tself on ts axs and n ts orbt, turnng, turnng, and the other worlds about t. If we consder ourselves nstead of what we call external nature we fnd that the same rythm s beatng tself out n our lves. When we thnk a thought n a certan way we are prone to do t agan; happness and sadness, sadness and happness sng ther eternal song n our souls. Each of us, as ndvduals, are phrases n the great worldsong; the race of men wth ts constant successon of youth and age and death and youth agan, s, perhaps, a verse of the poem. I lke to thnk of the world n ths way. It s pleasant to feel that I am part of, and essentally lke the world of wnds and flowers and anmals. s governed by a great law of harmony; so am I. A song should have varyng and contrastng It motfs; troubles that seem lke dscords may be the deepest and rchest chords of all. Ths thought makes of the great nexplcable world a thng frendly and near. Odors of sprngtme, the throbbng sounds of a summer nght, wnds, soft, or wld and stngng, are part of the purpose of whch I am a part for s not a song a unt, and so a somethngto-be-accomplshed, a purposed thng?, Yet the song does not beat on and on unchangngly. It slps away rrevocably nto the past and leaves behnd n my mnd only the shadows of unremembered thngs keen sorrows and keener joys, snatches of old tales, the breath of old hlls, dreams and longngs whch I used to have sweet cadences all of a song whch slps away and s never brought back. Day and nght, wnter and summer, n constant rythmc successon, but never the same day, or the same nght '-never the same wnter and summer. So I st n the woods and wonder at lfe after a fashon of my own, and even whle I lsten the song changes. The wnd that seemed so strong and young has grown slent; the crmson glow of the sunset has shot nto the sky, and the Mystery of the nght walks softly through the trees. Part of the song comes back to me, and I feel my father's strong arms about me, and see the black form of a horse ahead. Beyond s a young moon hoverng above a wooded hll. I hear my lttle brother sayng, very sleeply, "Well, you mght as well do your 'Mene,' dad." And then my father's voce, hushed to sut the slent nght and the load of tred chldren, begns "Mene ade Thea, Peleadeo Achlleos," an old, old song agan! I remember that I started my thnkng by wonderng about the poetry men make, and that I have gotten very far away yet not far, for musc s the heart of nature. Whle I have been rememberng, the pognant beauty of the moment that was, has gone, and I have lost t wthout knowng. Ah, a sad song to flee so hastly! Yet t s n the nature of all songs that the sngng should cease. Murel Bacheler, 1912.

16 ' THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS THE SILVER T was evenng Arzona evenng and the I forester was tred; he leaned aganst the «fe cabn door and looked across the canyon at the mountans. The forester was thnkng, vaguely at frst, of the new road for whch the men were runnng the lne, of the trees to be felled, the mles he must walk and rde the next day, and then, because he was lookng at them, of the mountans among whch he lved. Hs eyes followed the outlne of the one under whose shadow hs cabn had crept for protecton. Scarred t was, roughened n a hundred places by the jagged, outcroppng ledges, but so bg and brown and knd that one was awed at the thought of ts everlastngness. "Who eveh made t must a-loved what he was don', don't you all thnk so too?" A forester s not easly startled, but t was surprsng to have the very thought n one's mnd unexpectedly put nto words, especally when one had magned hmself absolutely alone and the nearest human beng at the mne three mles down the tral. "Yes, I thnk whoever made t dd," he answered softly, lookng down to see who had spoken wth just the fantest, softest trace of the "ole Vrgna" accent. Standng before hm was a chld, a lttle, brown boy n faded blue overalls, begnnng wth a bb under a small, determned chn, and endng just above two stubbed-out, dusty shoes. "Howdy, sonny. Whose boy are you, and where do you come from? ' " I'm not a boy, I'm a grl, and I belong to Jmmy Gardner. We all lve over yondah at the Benjamn mne." "What's your name?" "Jm." "Oh, named after daddy?" "Yes, suh." "Well, Jm, what^can I do for you?" The forester felt rather than knew that somewhere there was a wrong, that ths boysh lttle grl had come to hm for what help? She had answered hs questons very quetly, yet a note an nsstent somethng n her voce made hm feel a strength of wll, a relentlessness of purpose that almost shamed hm, a man. The chld spoke at last qute slowly, her plan, brown face as expressve as an Indan's. "I have come," she sad, "to tell you that you must not cut down my mother." "What! Look at me and tell me agan." "I have come to tell you that you must not cut down my mother." She was not lookng at hm, but up on the mountan at a soltary, slver spruce. " I don't know what you mean, my chld." "Are you gon' to cut down the the," she SPRUCE. hestated just a moment, "the bg slver tree up theah?" "Yes, I am," he repled, feelng, as she looked at hm, lke a gulty thng who had hurt someone she loved. "Well, you can't." The determnaton n the words made hm realze that a man hs own age mght have sad them. "Why not?" "Because, because oh, come, please come up on the mountan wth me. Come up to the slver spruce; theah I can tell you, so you'll know why you cannot cut down my mother. Come." She ddn't even look toward hm as she started up the tral, and, wthout a thought of hs uncooked supper or the report due the next mornng, the forester slently followed. Hgh up they went over the slppery, needlecovered ground among the trunks of the frendly pnes. The afterglow n the southwest was yellow, and across the mesa on the other sde, the warm June wnd brought the manzanta fragrance. They stood, at last, near the crest of the mountan n the shadow of the soltary spruce, at the base of whch was a new stake. Together, man and chld looked, marvelng at the splendd strength of t, ts glorous straghtness and the beauty of the slver- tpped branches. "Jmmy, chld," sad the forester awkwardly, "I suppose t does seem wcked to you, but t s drectly n the road lne and, and won't you tell me over agan about not cuttng t, and why you call ths tree your mother?" "Oh, don't you see, can't you understand?" Her voce wavered, and the small, brown hands fluttered lke detached thngs. All self-conscousness, due to fear of rdcule, all of the stern selfrepresson of eght years was swept away. The sprt that made her father's father fght tll the grass was blood-darkened when the odds were one hundred to one, flckered n the gray, Irsh eyes set so wdely apart. The chld was fghtng wth one hundred chances to one that she would be msunderstood and laughed at; the fght was good. " I haven't any mother, any really one, 'cause she ded eveh so long ago. I haven't anybody but Daddy Jm and Martza; he stays down n the mne all day, and Martza's only an Indan. I wanted a mother, all my lfe I've wanted one, not to take care of me, 'cause Martza can do that; anybody can dress you or gve you baths and put you to bed; and not to tell stores or love me, 'cause Daddy Jm tells beautful ones; he's kssed me 'leven tmes snce I can remember, and taught me to rde an' shoot, an' always called me 'sonny boy.' Mothers are to tell

Don't you s'pose f I had one a really one she'd always lsten, always, and not laugh or read the paper whle I was a-telln' her? I wanted a mother to tell thngs to, an' when I wanted her most of all I found the slver spruce. I was only four, so lttle I couldn't even say mother plan. The branches are low and strong and knd, lke arms; I've slpped nto them so many tmes. At frst I only told her about my playthngs the sand-ple wheah I had my mne, about rdn' on the ore buckets and clmbn' down sx hundred feet on the laddahs, and then I wasn't a baby any more; I grew up, and truly told her thngs. "My mother knows when the clouds behnd the grante peaks all turn shadow-colored, when the foothlls look lke streaks of smoke all cuddln' closer to the mountans 'cause the sun has gone away an' left the west all shnn' brght; my mother knows, then, that somethn' comes an' hurts me heah. She knows 'cause I have told her, an' she understands why t makes me happy jus' to le on the ground and. and lve. Every yeah I've brought her the very frst marposas; she jus' loves the desert lly flowers an' mescal, and mother's told me the reason why my heart beats fast and trees an' sky an'oakbrush seems all blurred, when I carry to her n my hands a branch of manzanta. When I le n her arms the lonesomeness all goes away; I heah the branches whspern' and the yucca bells a-rngn' all for me. My mother beleves that shadows all have colors, f Daddy Jm dd laugh at me for sayn' t. "We play wth the wnd that makes the pne trees sng, and wondah together about so many thngs: f the Vrgna hlls among whch my truly mother lved were any greener than the wld grapevnes n the canyon, and why our Daddy Jm cuts down the trees an' makes great, ugly poles to prop up the hollow mountans, wheah he fnds the rocks of gold, when all the gold he could eveh want les n the poppy cups f he just cared to look for t. "Sometmes n the evenn' before Daddy Jm comes home from the mne, after Martza has patched my ovahalls, se,wed the soles on my shoes an' gone away, the fre thngs come a-creepn' closer an' closer to my bed, then 'way up on the mountan I can heah the cheeta n the tree tops an' my mother calln' to me. The fre thngs run across my face, an' I hde t n the pllow 'cause the fre s burnn' trees, great, beautful, strong trees lke my slver spruce, trees that have held n ther leaves the frst lttle baby sunbeam, trees that 1 have known the wnd's secrets, and kssed the clouds, and then, oh, how I want my tree mother's arms, the strong, bg branches; she has held me so many tmes. Daddy Jm thnks I'm bg; some days he says 'boy' now nstead of 'sonny,' an' I lke t; but she holds me tght an' says 'mother's mountan baby' that I love. I come ovah ever' evenn' 'cause I'm watn' an' a- watn' to see f the wnd n the branches won't tell me how a truly mother says good-nght. Oh, mother, my tree mother, you all must know what I ray.

The forester bent down, wrenched the stake from the ground and threw t far nto the gorge below. The chld's cheeks flamed n the half lght. Almost reverently he took from hs head the whte, soft hat. "Tell the tree mother good-jvght, mountan baby," he sad, "and I'll carry you back over the tral to Daddy Jm." James Maryfrank Gardner,

18 , ; THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS IN '61. SLIP Early n '61 the Ffty-fourth Massachusetts dsembarked at Charleston. Rumors of ther approach had reached the cty before them, so that ther progress up the man street to the Ctadel Green was not unwatched. The door of an mposng resdence opened slowly to let an aged black form, resplendent n whte apron and red bandanna, out on to the pazza. She tottered down the walk, every now and then castng a half-frghtened glance back at the house. The gate slammed after her decrept fgure. Ths called forth a fnal glance to the house. Then nto the road she went, rght nto the path of the approachng solders, and took her stand. Tremblng wth age and emoton, she showed no fear of the approachng horse, whom the rder rened n wth dffculty. "Is yo' Mas' Yankee?" "Yes," somewhat rrtated at ths delay. "Is yo' Mas' Yankee?" Then rememberng that he had come to fght for the Unon and for such of hs race as ths old woman, he answered wth a break n hs voce: "Yes, we're the colored Yankees." And wth tears streamng down her face, the old woman repled: "Tanky Jesus! Tanky Jesus!" E. C. D., MARY. A tall, quet grl came nto the dnng-room and sat down besde me. She was dressed n pnk, whch was matched by the delcate color n her cheeks and the rbbon around her har. As she took her seat next to me, I was conscous of a slght feelng of awe and admraton for her absolute pose SHEETS. and lack of self-conscousness. Her deep-set, grey eyes looked around the table casually, and fnally rested on me. Very serously they gazed at me, and very serous and condescendng was her voce, as she sad, "Well, do I have to st next to you all ths year?" I faced her nstantly. Never before had a frendshp been begun wth such a remark. "I rather thnk I am as badly off as you are," I remarked hotheadedly. Then the ce was broken. I admt that we fought durng the remander of the meal, but we dd t good-naturedly, as two chums wll fght about nothng at all. At the end of dnner, she poked me n a haughty manner, looked at me wth her serous eyes, remarked coldly, "I am so releved to thnk that I can now get rd of you," put her arm on my shoulder and led me nto the parlor as she would an old comrade.

19 O THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. "The Long Roll," by Mary Johnston. Houghton Mffln Co., A sngle thread of romance n a great cable of hstory s Mss Johnston's book, "The Long Roll." Ths fact takes the work out of the class of vvd but artfcal wrtngs and puts t among the great narratves of the race. The love-makng of Rchard Cleave tarres just as courtng tarred n those warworn days, and the fgure of Stonewall Jackson domnates all other characters just as t dd n lfe n Vrgna, ffty years ago. The men of the South held passon subservent to the plans of ther mltary cheftans or to the needs of ther state, so a romance of those days must of truth go lmpngly. Mss Johnston's story, then, wll not please the novel readers they say the story s a falure but t wll please the hstoran and the truth-lover to the end of tme. Mss Johnston's work s Homerc n ts vtalty, ts battle sprt, ts sweep and rush of heroes; t s as partcular and mnute as De Foe, and the dramatc power of t s not surpassed by Hugo. "The Long Roll" s a contrbuton to Amercan hstory of the greatest value. If t could be used n schools and colleges as a supplementary text-book, there would be an enthusasm aroused that would make ardent hstorcal scholars of the next generatons. As an appeal for peace, "The Long Roll" surpasses Olve Schrener's last book, and puts before us the true front of bloody battle n words that can never be forgotten. The genus of Mss Johnston has gven to Amercan letters a work of prceless moral and hstorcal value. I need not tell the solder-lovng reader that the ttle, "The Long Roll," does not sgnfy a lst of heroes as long as Homer's lst of shps, but refers rather to the alarm the drums gve when the foe attacks or the men are to be assembled. Ths alarm s, under the stcks of a drummer, a contnuous throbbng thunder to whch men almost nstnctvely rally. Mss Johnston shows that the "lost cause" was a summons to the South to whch t responded wth ntrepd gallantry. Not only s the ttle of the battle-feld, but the crtc does not fnd the wrter errng n the descrpton of the weapons used and ther proper employment; her "manual of arms" also s of the battle-feld. You see the solder tearng hs cartrdge wth blackened lps, sendng t home wth swft ramrod, puttng the cap, wth quck fngers, on the np pe, then rasng the weapon and frng nto the 01 comng ranks of blue. Mss Johnston's artllery technque s just as correct; the spongng, the rammng, the "thumbng of the vent," the use of the prmer. It may be urged that these are secondary matters, but many novels of the Cvl War have been wrtten n whch the vrasemblance suffered because of error n these detals. It s good to fnd accuracy n every partcular. It mght be urged that weapons used n warfare are so unknown to these peaceful tmes that some sort of a glossary should be added so that such statements as that the fuses of the shells were cut too long, that the smooth-bores could not stand up to the rfled guns, and that the Parrotts were powerful, mght be understood. Perhaps the book s best understood by those who read t wth many an upward glance at belt and saber hangng over the mantel-pece. Judth Cary s beloved by two men, Rchard Cleave and Maury Stafford. It s a surprse to Rchard Cleave to fnd hmself preferred, but when t s clear to Stafford that Judth Cary's choce has fallen on hs rval, he wshes to run hm. Ths he accomplshes at Whte Oak Swamp, where he gves the courer a garbled order desgned to deceve Cleave, colonel of the Sxty-ffth Vrgna. "Rchard Cleave consdered the order he had receved. He found an ambguty n the wordng, a choce of constructons. He half turned to send the courer agan to Wnder to make absolutely sure that the constructon he preferred was correct." At ths crtcal moment Cleave hears other troops apparently makng ready to follow any advance on the part of hs regment, so he "steps n front of hs colour company. "Attenton! Into column! Forward!" In consequence of ths move, the Sxty-ffth s cut to peces and Cleave s dsmssed from the army. He re-enlsts n the artl- (Contnued on page 25)

20 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS 11 ALUMNA DEPARTMENT. Dear Fellow Alumna: Our edtor has kndly gven me an opportunty to send a greetng n ths, the frst ssue of the Alumn.e Magazne edton of College News. It s good to feel that the muchtalked-of Alumna Magazne s at last launched. We bespeak for t the hearty and loyal support of all alumnae. Ths s all that s needed to make t ultmately a dgnfed publcaton devoted to ntellgent dscusson of educatonal questons. Here are wshes that t may have a long lfe and. a prosperous one. Ellen F. Pendleton. Ths number of the College News marks a venture on the part of those alumnae who feel that ther knowledge of each other and of the vared nterests whch they represent has heretofore been nsuffcent as presented n the columns of College News and Magazne. That ths meagerness of materal has been chefly due to the dffcultes of extractng full reports of alumnae actvtes, whether from clubs, commttees or ndvduals, no one who has served her term as Alumnae Edtor wll deny; and that only by the hearty co-operaton of every alumna can an adequate, nterestng and dgnfed account of alumnae dongs be presented s equally certan. It wll be recalled by each alumnae reader that the queston as to the advsablty of attemptng an ndependent alumnae publcaton to be ssued quarterly, or of contnung for the present wth the undergraduate publcatons, was put before her last sprng. In the lght of the answers receved from some seven hundred out of thrty-seven hundred and ffty alumnae, together wth the presentaton at the Alumnaa Assocaton last June of the practcal problems nvolved, t was voted by the Assocaton to try the proposed combnaton wth the undergraduates for one year. Snce the undergraduate edtoral boards had already decded to unte forces for the comng year, ssung ther publcatons under one management and a sngle subscrpton, t was also understood that the form whch the alumnae matter should take be that of an Alumnae Secton of ten or twelve pages n the ten monthly ssues of the Magazne, whle space for nformaton n condensed form be retaned n the weekly News as usual. It s the hope of the new Alumnae Edtor and of the Commttee on Alumnae Publcatons who are thus venturng, that every alumna who, by her vote or by her slence, expressed her confdence n ths plan of combnaton, wll feel herself responsble for ts success both n sprt and n purse. Josephne Batchelder, For the Commttee. What shall ths Alumnae Department of College News mean to us who have left Wellesley? I put on my prophetc glasses and look eagerly down the path whch we are about to enter. Wll not each one of you take a look wth me and antcpate me n answerng ths queston? For my part, I feel sure that t wll brng us all n touch wth each other more effectually than anythng we have done. Madame Edtor, may we have a free press? If ths s possble, and we are courteous and broadmnded, topcs of real value and nterest can be dscussed. By means of ths Department we may know about the achevements of some other class than our own and become acquanted wth the wrters and thnkers among our number; we wll hear, at once, of the problems before the alumnae, and can have an authentc verson of the many matters of nterest before the college; some of us hear only garbled newspaper reports.

The appontment of Ellen Ftz Pendleton as presdent of Wellesley College s an event sgnfcant not only n the hstory of the college but n that of contemporary Amercan educaton. It s possble that Wellesley alumna? who have known Mss Pendleton chefly as mpartal executor of the Academc Councl's legslaton do not realze, so fully as her colleagues at Wellesley and the members of other college facultes, the full mport of the appontment. In electng a presdent, college trustees are often compelled to choose between two sorts of qualfcaton for the offce, experence or ntatve; and to sacrfce one of two advantages, novelty or tradton. In ths dlemma they ether appont the tred and sure executve, or they elect the presdent from outsde the college, allowng hm, as certan trustees recently observed, three or four years n whch to do lttle save to learn to know hs college. The Wellesley trustees have not needed to face ths alternatve, but they have acted on the convcton that loyal and effcent servce n the nternal admnstraton of a college, when supplemented by the capacty successfully to conduct ts external affars, merts the hghest honor n ts gft. Mss Pendleton untes a detaled and thorough knowledge of the hstory, the specfc excellences, and the defnte needs of Wellesley College wth openness of mnd, breadth of outlook and the endowment for constructve leadershp. No college procedure seems to her to be justfed by precedent merely; no currculum or legslaton s, n her vew, too sacred to be subject to revson. Her wde acquantance wth the polces of other colleges and wth modern tendences n educaton prompts her to constant enlargement and modfcaton, whle her accurate knowledge of Wellesley condtons and her large patence are a check on the too exuberant sprt of nnovaton. Wth Mss Pendleton as presdent, the college s sure to advance wth dgnty and wth safety. She wll do better than "buld up" the college, for she wll qucken and gude ts growth from wthn. Fundamental to the professonal s the personal equpment for offce. Mss Pendleton s unswervngly just, unstntedly generous, and completely devoted to the college. Not every one realzes that her reserve hdes a sympathy as keen as t s deep, though no one doubts ths who has ever appealed to her for help. Fnally, all those who really know her are well aware that she s utterly self-forgetful, or rather, that t does not occur to her to consder any decson n ts bearng on her own poston or popularty. Ths nablty to take the narrowly personal pont of vew s, perhaps, her most dstngushng characterstc. There has been some dscusson of the wsdom of appontng a woman as college presdent. I may frankly avow myself as one of those who have been lttle concerned for the appontment of a woman as such. On general prncples, I would welcome the appontment of a man as the next presdent of Bryn Mawr or of Wellesley; and, smlarly, I would as soon see a woman at the head of Vassar or of Smth. But f our trustees, when lookng last year for a successor to Mss Hazard n her emnently successful admnstraton, had rejected the deallyendowed canddate, solely because she was a woman, they would have ndcated ther belef that a woman s unftted for hgh admnstratve work. The recent hstory of our colleges s a refutaton of ths concluson. The responsble corporaton of a women's college cannot possbly take the ground that "any man" s to be preferred to the rghtlyequpped woman. To quote from The Naton, n ts ssue of June 22: "If Wellesley, after ts long tradton of women presdents, and able women presdents, had turned from the appontment of a woman, especally when a hghly-capable successor was at hand, the decson would have meant... the adopton of the prncple of the nelgblty of women for the college presdency.... It s an anomaly that women should be permtted to enter upon an ntellectual career and should not be permtted to look forward to the natural rewards of successful labor." Ths s not the place n whch to make menton of Presdent Pendleton's steady loyalty to the college deals ol honest work and wholesome communty lfe; her naugural address wll gve her the opportunty to formulate for herself the ams of her admnstraton. But t may not be amss to accentuate the fact that Mss Pendleton unquestonably conceves the offce of college presdent not as that of absolute monarch but as that of consttutonal ruler; not as that of master, but as that of leader. Readers of the Dean's report for the Sabbatcal year of Mss Hazard's absence, n whch Mss Pendleton was actng presdent, wll not have faled to notce the spontaneous expresson of ths sense of comradeshp n Mss Pendleton's reference to the Faculty. And the students who lstened last fall to the words whch she spoke at the openng chapel servce were thrlled wth the feelng whch now moves us all. Students, alumnae and Faculty, we realze, as never before, how closely we are bound together n our common loyalty to the college; and

22 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS 13 we promse to our leader, Presdent Pendleton, our full confdence and our fathful co-operaton. Mary Whton Calkns. COMMENCEMENT WEEK. Never were Wellesley skes farer or the barometer knder than durng last Commencement, when the openng event was the Senors' presentaton of Hauptmann's "The Sunken Bell." On Saturday by three o'clock even the spacous campus seemed thronged wth students and guests; n fact, all Boston and New York seemed bdden to the Garden Party. The great event that afternoon was, perhaps, the unvelng of the bronze doors presented to the Lbrary by the Class of '86. The presentaton speech was made by Mrs. Davdson, presdent of that class. Then followed a repetton of the Senor Tree Day dances on College Hall Hll. A pretty story was danced out, and now and agan came applause from the throngs crowded on the embankment, whch seemed transformed nto a vast garden of color and flowers by the gay hats and pretty gowns that everyone was wearng. Where all of the guests dned that evenng at Wellesley, or whence a second large audence could have come for the outdoor Glee Club concert that evenng would be dffcult to tell. The grls of the Muscal Clubs sang or played from the top of the porte cochere of College Hall, whle ther eager audence down n the crcle, lghted by merry lttle lanterns and a full moon, were vastly more comfortable than n former years, when they were crowded together n College Hall Chapel. On Sunday mornng at quarter past ten came the alumnae prayer meetng n College Hall Chapel, whch abounds n memores dear to all alumnae. At the Memoral Chapel the baccalaureate sermon was gven by the Rev. Henry S. Coffn, D. D., of New York. In the afternoon came socety vespers at the dfferent socety houses and at the Observatory Professor Whtng welcomed alumnae. That evenng, n the twlght peace of a Wellesley Baccalaureate Sunday, were the vespers, whch seemed to crown the day. Scattered through Saturday, Monday and Tuesday were reunon luncheons, dnners and teas. On Monday evenng Wellesley extended her hosptalty yet agan to the alumnae and to Senors and the Senors' frends. Followng a tme-honored custom of ths annual recepton, Presdent Pendleton receved n the Brownng Room, and she was asssted by Mrs. Durant, Mrs. Whtn and Mrs. Frances Scudder Wllams, presdent of the Alumnae Assocaton. On Commencement Day mornng, the chef marshal, Mrs. Ada Wng Mead, '86, arranged the places of meetng for all alumnae, and the processon to the Houghton Memoral Chapel from College Hall was led by her and by the offcers of the Alumnae Assocaton. The whole retnue was n academc attre, brghtened by the brllant lnngs of the hoods of many of the trustees and of the Faculty and of the alumnae. Never has there been, however, a more mpressve sght at Wellesley than the large class of Senors who marched through an asle of alumnae as they went on ther way to the chapel, whch they entered as undergraduates and from whch they returned as alumnae. After the address by John F. Moors came the conferrng of certfcates and degrees, and then followed the address of Presdent Pendleton, who was receved wth prolonged applause. On Alumnae Day the busness meetng and the luncheon flled the day and closed the festvtes of Commencement week. F. S. M. C. ALUMNA COMMENCEMENT GIFTS.

The key-note for all alumnae durng last Commencement was struck n advance by the quotaton on the outsde page of the notces ssued by the Executve Board last May: "Let us lay asde for the tme all worldly cares and come back prepared to renew old frendshps, to sng agan the old songs and to talk over college days 'neath ' the oaks of our dear old Wellesley.'" It was even several days before the luncheon that alumnae showed, by radant faces, that they too beleved what Mss Olve Davs told them on that occason, that "youth s of the sprt." In fact, youth and sprt both lodged wth alumnae durng those blssful days, when ther voces dd jon and

23 14 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. sng "Through all the wealth of woods and waters;" and they reached ther culmnaton n the splendd, new adaptaton of the cheer, "P-e-nd-l-e-t-o-n, Wellesley!" It seems that ths s the frst year n the annals of Wellesley that alumnae headquarters have been really quarters. But last June, No. 117 College Hall was large and ary, and attractve wth ferns and fuchsas, so that when an alumna was drnkng tea at the nformal at-homes held most afternoons by the Executve Board n one end of the room, she mght forget (but of course she never dd!) that at the other end, small exchanges of courtesy could be made, lke the payment of annual dues or the purchase of luncheon tckets. And, lest she and the rest should forget to present those luncheon tckets to the guard at the rope's end, notces of remnder greeted her and ther eyes as well, f good luck would happen to turn them to that most useful pece of any college furnture durng Commencement the house bulletn board! Oh, could but the alumna greet her long-separated college roommate wth one hand, wthout lettng the other hand nnocently drop nto an unnotced spot, a useful thng lke a trunk-check or a luncheon tcket just purchased! On the whole, she rather enjoys even the "lost and found" type of exctement, for that, too, remnds her that "youth s of the sprt." And there s no better sght than that of a group of alumnae "each greetng each," so that the on-lookng undergraduate qute longs for the tme to come when she can jon also n the refran: "Ours are the future days! Ours for the stronger strfe, Ours for the larger lfe, Helpng the world. "O'er whte felds lookng out, Joyous the song we rase; Hope overmasters doubt, Welcome, brght days!" ALUMNA LUNCHEON. Wth the joy that meetng brngs after long separaton, every Wellesley alumna who attends the annual luncheon of the Alumnae Assocaton feels there, more perhaps than at any other festvty, that "There s rght merry cheer, There are frends true and dear." Ths year the processon to the dnng-room was led by the head marshal, Mrs. Ada Wng Mead, '86, who conducted the guests of honor nto the College Hall dnng-room. College Hall dnng-room has been the scene of so many alumnae luncheons that t s hard to pcture the luncheon as beng gven elsewhere. Ths year ts appearance had been transformed, not wholly by the more artstc hangng of the class pennants; not wholly by the usual bankng of palms at the end, nor by the ferns n the wndows; nor wholly by the vases of glorous red peones on that long stretch of tables on the west sde of the room gven over to our new alumnae the Class of 191 1; but more, perhaps, by the enclosure of the center tables by the placng of hghhandled baskets at the end of each table. These baskets, flled wth the class flowers of the reunon at the table, gave a desred, artstc touch. As each reunonng class had been asked to wear ts emblem or costume to the luncheon, an nnovaton was made by havng the guests of honor seated frst. Each class then entered by tself, marchng to musc or sngng ts reunon song, and was revewed and admred by all prevously seated. The Class of '81 made the trumphal entry, and was followed by '86, whose faces were more radant than the class dasy each wore, for such honor as had come to '86 never came to a class before or snce. Then " '91 came sngng, lmpng on ther stalwart crooks, And wearng cap and kerchef such as one sees n books." '91, oh, blessed be '91, for your nventve skll n song or speech or cheer or rhyme! But '96 came trppng on, sngng a new and approprate song, " '96 would lke to say She wll honor and obey Wth true gladness and content Her beloved Presdent. "'96 has always been Secretary to the Dean; What to Pendleton Comes then nearer than her very pen?" wth graceful, slken scarfs of whte and crmson. And n jngle or n toast Had much that the} 7 can justly boast. Then 1901, mndful, resourceful 1901, entered wth the Englsh gatherng-baskets flled to the brm wth scarlet carnatons, her class flower. These were a glorous settng for ther loyal song, dedcated to our beloved Mrs. Durant. After 1901 came the bluebrds of 1906, and, as they sat n the bow wndow, ther blue wngs now and agan seemed to flutter out between the palms. Searchng for happness are the bluebrds of 1906? But one of ther flock has certanly found that the bluebrd dwells wth her, for her toast scntllated wth wnged words; and, n fact, at her own reunon she told of "The Fndng of the Bluebrd." 1908, that valant band, n red felt hats, were next, and Betsy Bard was there wth all the rest. And 1910, next

24 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS 15 to our youngest alumnae, entered then, and at ths begnnng of ther alumnae career qute approprately wore mornng caps of volet tulle. But even though at the mornng of ther alumnae lfe one of ther number, who talked later of servce, showed an nsght nto lfe ganed more from ntuton, maybe but that s sweeter far than that ganed by long experence. The Class of needed no embellshment. She served well as an undergraduate,. and her loyalty to her honorary member, Mss Edth Souther Tufts, was ndcated by deafenng applause before the afternoon was at an end. To "wrte up" a spontaneous occason, lke our last alumnae luncheon, accordng to an outlne, s to leave the spontanety out. And spontanety was the general sprt of the afternoon. Nearly every reunonng class had responded, n greater or less degree, to the suggeston, made n Aprl by the Executve Board, to furnsh a jngle or jolly reunon song, and to wear ether class emblems or reunon costumes to the luncheon. Reference has already been made to the clever way n whch reunonng alumnae responded to these suggestons. As toast-mstress, the presdent of the Alumnae Assocaton, Mrs. Frances Scudder Wllams, '85, herself the exponent of Wellesley's "sed mnstrare," was unconscously the ntroducton to the frst toast "WeUesley Women." Agan the alumnae were pad the honor of lstenng, frst of all, to Mrs. Durant, whose theme, "Wellesley Women," expressed unendng love for her grls as well as her hgh deals and Mr. Durant 's great ambtons for them, as they take ther place n the world. The prolonged applause whch greeted Mrs. Durant, both before and after her toast, was an ndcaton of the ever-ncreasng loyalty wth whch she s enshrned n the hearts of the alumnae. As the toastmstress was tellng of the honorary degree of Ltt. D., conferred that mornng by Brown Unversty on her who was to be the second speaker, the alumnae burst nto deafenng applause, whch lasted long after Presdent Pendleton rose to speak on the subject of "Essentals." But the essental n the alumnae mnd was to pay our new Presdent the trbute that hearty applause always conveys. The two great "essentals" emphaszed by Presdent Pendleton concerned the two, most vtal n all collegate admnstraton loyalty and scholarshp. The new adaptaton of the cheer nto " P-e-nd-l-e-t-O-n Wellesley!" seemed the culmnaton of rhymes and jngles whch followed from varous parts of the room to celebrate the begnnng of the new admnstraton. The thrd toast "Lookng Ahead Student- Alumnae Buldng," was dvded between Betsy Coe Bard, '08. and Katherne Terry, '11. Whether an alumna s dealng wth the frst dea and the frst dollar rased, as was Betsy Bard's honor, or wth the latest dea and the last dollar rased among undergraduates, as was Katherne Terry's prvlege, the crystallzed message of them both to the alumnae may be stated thus: Work hard and work fast; Save much and beg last, 'tll the fnshng brck of the Student-Alumnae Buldng s pad for! After "Locatng a Vocaton," wth the faclty ganed by ten years' experence, Margaret Callahan Mlls, '01, closed by sayng, "One of our class has expressed our love for Alma Mater n the hymn whch she has wrtten and whch she begs the prvlege of dedcatng to our honored survvng founder n the earnest hope that t may express to her the grattude we feel for Wellesley her lfe, her frendshps, her deals, her nsprng power." Copes of ths hymn, wrtten by Mary Leavens to the ar of Madstone, whch appeared also on the leaflet, had been prevously dstrbuted. Mrs. Durant acknowledged ths hymn n feelng words. Mary Emogene Hazeltne, '91, agreed wth her subject, "Evoluton of the Modern Grl," for she sad, "Of course grls have changed wthn the last generaton, and the modern grl has evolved from the type of her predecessors because she has '91 and '81 and '86 and Presdent Pendleton wth all the rest of you to make her less self-conscous, less conventonal, less dependent."... The loyal note of the motto, "Sed Mnstrare," began wth '81 and then passed through the scale of thrty years to Mrs. Sarah Woodman Paul responded for the Class of '81 that class whch so abounds n the Wellesley sprt. She referred to the return of Mss Margaret P. Waterman from her msson feld n the Phlppnes. Of the eghteen lvng members of the class, fourteen were present at ther reunon luncheon, when the class gft of $175 was announced. For 1910's share n ths toast, Mss Carolne E. Vose stood sponsor. She emphaszed clearly that "the fundamental fact about 'mnsterng' s the fact that t must be reduced to the pont where t ceases to be conscous mnsterng and becomes, practcally, dong what we want to do." Mss Vose spoke also of the "duty of gladness," whch seems a duty easly forgotten; but "the gladness of a sprt s an ndex of ts power." "Loyalty to Old and New" was the toast for '96, when Cornela Park Knaebel pad trbute to the old and to the new and especally to Wellesley's new Presdent. Jesse Gdley Carter, '06, wondered why 1906 should have been asked to respond to such a subject as the "Elmnaton of the Moral Impera-

25 16 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS tve." Her words, provng the contrary as true of 1906, were so succnctly and clearly stated that 1906 rses lke truth and, far from elmnatng, t establshes the moral mperatve! The closng toast, "Youth s of the Sprt," found sweet, loyal expresson n the words of the Reunon Charman of the Class of '86, Mss Olve Davs. Agan a, member of '86 stood on the das. Just below her, on the front row, sat her class, wth radant, expectant faces, whle they lstened to the clever words of ther classmate, who s ther second member connected wth the admnstraton. The toast lst was arranged so that the ntal letters spelled Wellesley, and was as follows: Wellesley Women, Mrs. Paulne Adelne Durant Essentals, Presdent Ellen Ftz' Pendleton, '86 Lookng Ahead Student-Alumnse Buldng, Betsy Coe Bard, '08 Katherne Terry, '11 Locatng a Vocaton, Margaret Callahan Mlls, '01 Evoluton of the Modern Grl, Mary Emogene Hazeltne, '91 Sed Mnstrare. After Thrty Years, Sarah Woodman Paul, '81 After One Year, Carolne Elza Vose, '10 Loyalty to Old and New, Cornela Park Knsebel, '96 Elmnaton of the Moral Imperatve, Jesse Gdley Carter, '06 Youth s of the Sprt, Olve Davs, '86 After sngng the Alumnae Song, each alumna left the famlar dnng-room sngng n her heart: "Swft though the years may fly, Clouds on a stormy blast, Safe as the far blue sky Bdeth our Past!" F. S. M. C. All who responded to toasts were nvted to furnsh them for publcaton n ths ssue. But, owng to the fact that some were extemporaneous, and that the authors of others dd not reply, only the followng are here to publsh: From the Class of Youth s '86. of the Sprt. Lfe has advanced twenty-fve years snce '86 left Wellesley, but these twenty-fve years are wth us, so far as our youth s concerned, a mere matter of almanac and sun. Our honorable grey hars and teadfast wrnkles wtness, t s true, to the passage of the years, but these are honestly-won nsgna of experence, rchness of understandng, achevement, wsdom and vctory. We would not, f we could, smooth out the wrnkles, nor would we part wth a sngle grey har. They are ours, nseparable from our achevements. She who translates them as a sgn of age makes a mstake. For t s wth years, dear Mrs. Durant, as t s wth you; there s no old, there s no new; lfe s at eghty as at twenty, when the sprt regns n the heart. The characterstcs of youth are a joyous responsveness, a spontaneous generosty, an audacty of purpose that knows no rebuff, a democracy that s unchallenged, and a vson that makes the unattanable a realty. These are the characterstcs of youth, and these are of the sprt. These are yours, dear Mrs. Durant, and ours. These are the characterstcs whch Wellesley must possess f she s to keep the sprt of youth. At ths, our slver annversary, we gve to you alumnae a young presdent, and we take the responsblty of standng by her. Mss Pendleton, we know that you wll help Wellesley to hold the sprt of youth. Do not be afrad of the Mrs. Grundys of the educatonal world you have courage; moreover, '86 s behnd you. You are our contrbuton to the educaton of the twenteth century. Wth the buoyancy of youth, launch nto undscovered seas. We wll go wth you to dscover new lands beyond the realm of strct academc precedents. The fronter s always before us, and each generaton needs poneers to conquer t. In the days of '86, under the leadershp of Alce Freeman, Wellesley was a poneer n woman's educaton, dd the thng thought mpossble, feared no rdcule, yelded to no opposton. To-day, f Wellesley s to keep the sprt of youth, she must stll be a poneer n the educaton of the twenteth century. We send you, our Presdent, a poneer beloved and trusted, nto the new land lyng before us, and n these new paths there are no ruts. The hgher educaton of women was wld radcalsm a generaton ago, to-day t s a plattude; but the broadenng of educaton, ts co-ordnaton wth lfe, ts unchanng from academc tradtons s the radcalsm of to-day. The ambton of '86 s that our Presdent put Wellesley n the van, a leader among leaders n the new educaton. We call you, than, alumnae, grow young wth '86! The best s yet to be, the whole for whch the frst was planned. Take afresh of the sprt of youth and conquest under our frst alumna presdent! Olve Davs, '86. Locatng a Vocaton. "The Wdder Douglas always told me the earth was round lke a ball, but I never took any stock n a lot o' them supersttons o' hers and, of course, I pad no attenton to that one, because I could see myself that the world was the shape of a plate and flat. But I had to gve n now, that the wdder was rght that s she was rght as to the rest of the world, but she warn't rght about the part our vllage s on; that part s the shape of a plate and flat I take my oath." Huckleberry Fnn, after hs trp n a balloon, had a changed pont of vew, and now that we've made

26 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 17 our ten-years' flght away from Wellesley, we fnd our pont of vew somewhat shfted, too; but we're just as convnced as he was that some of our deas are n the rght place. We've known all along that "If all the year were playng holdays, To sport would be as tedous as to work." We've not been as contented as the solemn rustc who asserted that the Englsh language was good enough for hm, "'T'was what the Bble was wrt n.' We've wanted somethng more, work, somethng to do, to do t well, better than anyone else for each of us can do some one thng better than anyone else n the world can do t. And that s one of the mportant thngs that we learn rght here just what we can do. We know pretty well at the end of our four years whether our talents le along academc, admnstratve, executve or socal lnes. And, moreover, we beleve wth Bshop Lawrence, that "although we go out to feed and clothe the poor, to nvestgate and to mprove, unless we nspre, a whole cty can lve and stll be dull and stupd." And ths nspraton that we strve to put nto our work-a-day world, we have found n Wellesley. We come back from year to year wth hearts burstng wth prde and love and thankfulness to you who have nspred us. One of our class has expressed our love for Alma Mater n the hymn whch she has wrtten, and whch she begs the prvlege of dedcatng to our honored survvng founder, n the earnest hope that t may express to her the grattude we feel for Wellesley her lfe, her frendshps, her deals, her nsprng power. Margaret Callahan Mlls, From the Class of '97: Evolutons of the Modern Grl. 'o. Of course grls have changed wthn the last generaton, and the modern grl has evolved from the type of her predecessors because she has had '91 and '81, '86 and Presdent Pendleton wth all the rest of you to help make her less self-conscous, less conventonal, less dependent. In the good old days, whch we are so prone to eulogze, she was domestc and nce, unnterestng and prggsh. How far back would you be wllng to go and how long would you wsh to reman f the Fary Berylune offered you the green cap and the damond buckle? and how many would take your daughters wth you? Yes, the shy, sweet, home-keepng lasses of our grandmothers' youth are lovely to rhapsodze over; the courteous, gentle text-book madenhood of our mothers s to be remembered wth sghs for the days that are no more. The able poneer women, loyal and brave, who evolved from lasses to be our grandmothers, the self-sacrfcng, capable women, who evolved from madens to be our mothers, wth the ntellgence and foresght to send us to college, and wth the courage to meet the crtcsm of the publc opnon of ther world for so emancpatng us, are lnks n the chan of the growth of ths modern grl, who so appals us because she does not revert to type. The daughters of to-day, wth ther broader educaton, ther knowledge of the world, ther ntellgently-drected effort, ther systematc use of tme, ther ablty to deal wth practcal problems, stand ndependently shoulder to shoulder wth ther brothers and ther brothers' chums, and wth them are workng out a new socal order. They have none of the self-conscousness of the grl of our own tme but n ts place have ganed a greater socal conscousness. The awakenng of ths socal conscousness s strrng the grl of to-day to the very depths of her beng. In answerng ts call, n feelng the thrll of ths new power, ths workng on the constructve sde of world problems, n ths passng from the home nto the outsde world, the modern grl has left behnd her as part of her hertage of culture, courtesy, gentleness, madenly charm, and domestcty; but we are not wllng to grant that she has surrendered these qualtes for all tme. They are only latent, whle she s absorbed n the great dscovery of her knd. The causes that make these dfferences n grls are They are the same so obvous as to be self-evdent. causes that are changng the order of our own world. Her very educaton s- founded on words that are acqured vocabulary for us, nvestgaton, research, specalst, educaton for effcency (but she can't spell any of them). Educaton s no longer educaton for ts own sake.

Can and wll she do t? The great coeducatonal state nsttutons of the West, equalzng opportunty as they do, are, and of necessty must be the very center of the growth of socal conscousness. In servng the state, ndvdual culture s, to a certan extent, lost sght of n the materal advancement of the commonwealth. The more carefully educated Wellesley student, wth her tradtons of culture, her fnely-traned taste, her sense of the ftness of thngs, her emphass upon thngs of the sprt, has somewhat of her relaton to the communty as a whole to learn from her Western sster. But n attanng socal effcency let us hope she wll not lose the fner graces that gve dstncton to a Wellesley grl. Those of us who have lved at a long dstance from Wellesley, meetng only an occasonal graduate of these newer years, can hardly be expected to make a just comparson between the grl of to-day and the one of our own tme.

After One Year. After Mrs. Paul's toast I feel I must ask you to be lenent wth me, and say tolerantly of me as the Red Queen dd of the Whte Queen n "Alce n Wonderland," "She means well, but she can't help sayng foolsh thngs as a general rule." The subject, "Sed Mnstrare, After One Year," has fallen to When we left college last June we had, perhaps, an "oppressve sense of personal responsblty." There was no danger of our not lvng up to the Wellesley motto rather there was the danger of our over lvng up to t. We hated to leave college because we wondered how t would get along wthout us. We feared the departure of 1910 mght be a serous detrment to ts future progress. Stll we heard the world callng to us to come and rght ts wrongs, and serous, earnest, determned, we obeyed the call. Now, a year has gone by, and we have come back home to tell you all about t. Incdentally we have come back to fnd that the college has borne our loss remarkably well. In fact, t has attaned one of ts greatest achevements n securng Mss Ellen F'tz Pendleton for ts presdent. Our deas of servce, though just as exalted as ever, have nevertheless changed somewhat. Molly Make-Beleve says, you remember, "And now abdeth fath, hope, charty, these three, but the greatest of these s a sense of humor." Ths one year has taught us that though "ths s a bg world, and t s a serous busness to lve n t," yet a sense of humor s a great help.... Ths does not mean an unknd sense of humor, whch makes fun of everybody and everythng, but t means that sense of humor whch saves many a stuaton, and whch often ads where nothng else would. Such a sense of humor s not to be underestmated. Mr. Crothers wrtes, "If the unverse had a place for everythng and everythng was n ts place, there would be lttle demand for humor." As a matter of fact, the world s full of all sorts of people, and they are not all n ther proper places. That a thng s not to be taken serously does not mply that t s ether unreal or unmportant. It has taken us a year, too, to grasp one fundamental fact about "mnsterng" whch, doubtless, you all knew long ago, that s, the fact that t must be reduced to the pont where t ceases to be conscous mnsterng and becomes practcally dong what we want to do. The world seems to be lookng not so much for grave, earnest, professed "doers of good" as t does for gay, happy people, who have no declared notons of phlanthropy. May I quote Mr. Crothers agan, who says wth truth, "that we detest heartly the person who confers a beneft upon us wth an ar that says, ' I have come to do you good. I have no selfsh gratfcaton n what I am dong for you, but a sense of duty has trumphed over my personal nclnaton.'" We agree also wth ths wrter n belevng that we must not try to monopolze the kndness! We must be knd to our neghbors n such a way as not to nterfere wth ther plans for beng knd to us! Ths last dea s not so easy to work out, though t sounds smple enough. Our wde experence n the world has taught us another duty whch s, perhaps, the most mportant of all, the duty of gayety, of gladness. Somehow ths seems a duty easly forgotten, or at any rate, neglected.... Stevenson expressed hs apprecaton of happy people n the words, "There s no duty we so much underrate as the duty of beng

28 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 19 happy. By beng happy we sow anonymous benefts upon the world, whch reman unknown even to ourselves, or when they are dsclosed, surprse nobody so much as the benefactor. A happy man or woman s a better thng to fnd than a fve-pound note. He or she s a radatng power of good wll, and ther entrance nto a room s as though another candle had been lghted." These are the thoughts brngs to you after her one year out of college, the thoughts " Sed mnstrare" call to her mnd, that n her humble judgment the world needs more humor, humor of the best and gentlest knd; that t wants to be served by people who do t joyously, and n such a way that they themselves are hardly aware that they are servng at all, and that t needs people who are wllng to gve the other person a chance to be knd, too, but that, above all, the world needs glad, happy people, people who remember that "the gladness of a sprt s an ndex of ts power."

She was always ready to sng, or, wth equal enthusasm, to wrte musc for the rhymes of class frolcs, or to arrange and harmonze an old German melody for our Tree Day song, Alma Mater. As the years have passed, we have learned to know her as a tender, fathful daughter, an nsprng teacher, a devoted wfe, a wonderful mother, a steadfast frend, and as one whose lfe, by common testmony, was a benedcton to hundreds n the communty n whch she lved. Durng the long months of battle aganst dsease, her cheerful courage never faltered. She seemed to thnk only of reganng her strength for the sake of those she loved, and by her ndomtable wll she sustaned not only herself, but those about her. Her lfe was strong and joyous.

Durng the fve years snce ts last reunon, the Class of 1886 has lost but one member, our beloved Flora Smealle Ward.

Her superb THE STUDENT-ALUMNA BUILDING. Is t old or new, the story of ths eager endeavor to rase the money necessary for Wellesley's Student- Alumnae Buldng? To the more recent alumnae, who have straned ther undergraduate allowances to meet the relentless demands of an nsatable commttee, t s all famlar hstory; to the earler alumnae t s, perhaps, stll new. It was durng the year that the presdent of Student Government frst brought the matter of a Student-Alumnse Buldng to the attenton of the college. A hearty response was mmedate. The need for such a buldng had been keenly felt among many of the larger eastern colleges; some had already secured ther buldngs, others were stll workng toward that end. Smth was the frst college for women to provde such a buldng. Mount Holyoke s now busly rasng funds, and the end of ther campagn s already n sght. All the causes promptng ths endeavor n other nsttutons were found to be exstent at Wellesley, and, n addton, many condtons pecular to Wellesley were partcularly urgent n ther demand for correcton. All of these condtons stll preval, becomng ntensfed each year as the college grows steadly larger. College Hall Chapel and the Barn are hopelessly nadequate for the requrements of the college n ts present proportons, and the serous overcrowdng and the resultng duplcaton of socal

29 20 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS events are most undesrable. Socal nequaltes, caused n part by the socetes, even yet narrowly restrcted n membershp, demand a socal center open equally to all. The relatve solaton of the Freshmen, makng t dffcult and at tmes mpossble for them to understand or apprecate the relatonshps, prncples and deals of the college, call strongly for opportuntes for nformal, natural daly assocaton of all the students. To the alumnae, the establshment of a permanent offce devoted to matters of alumnae nterest, the provdng of parlors and dnng-rooms where all alumnae returnng to Wellesley may fnd hosptalty watng partcularly for them, the adequate resources of the banquet hall for the accommodaton of the alumnae luncheon, the closer assocaton of undergraduates and alumnae, undoubtedly of mutual advantage all these benefts furnsh ample ncentve for effort to secure ths buldng. Durng the frst two years the efforts to rase money were under the drecton of an undergraduate commttee, whose chef sources of revenue were the undergraduates themselves, and the most recent alumnae, who had known the plan as undergraduates. In June, 1910, a commttee of alumnae was apponted by the Alumnae Assocaton to cooperate wth the undergraduate commttee for the purpose of securng a broader range for the work, and of assumng drecton of certan of ts phases whch the undergraduates were not n a poston to undertake. Both commttees are workng eagerly for the early fulfllment of the plan. The undergraduates are, as always, lmted n tme and resources. They had, however, succeeded n rasng by June, 1910, $12, Ther methods of rasng money are vared and nterestng; they sell ce-cream at college partes and plays, they collect and sell tnfol and cream jars, they make frequent collectons of stray pennes among the grls of the varous houses, ndvduals devote the money earned by some partcular form of labor to the ncrease of the fund, and socetes and other organzatons contrbute generously. Such methods add constantly, though n modest amounts, to the fund. Ths fall comes the great undergraduate effort of the last two years a huge far at Thanksgvng tme, the profts from whch wll, t s hoped, add conspcuously to the fund. It s evdent that the chef actvty n behalf of ths fund must be among the alumnae. Durng the wnter just past, appeals have been sent to the varous Wellesley clubs throughout the country, askng for ther help n the work. The responses have been generous. The Boston Wellesley Club gave two performances of "The Spansh Gypsy," whch netted $1, The Worcester Club produced "A Mdsummer Nght's Dream," clearng $400. The Phladelpha Club gave a muscale and rased $165. The Mnneapols Club sent $84, and the Cleveland Club $75. A new Wellesley club was organzed n Kansas Cty, whch mmedately contrbuted to the fund ts ntaton fees, $60. Other clubs have repled cordally to the appeal, and wll be heard from ths fall, no doubt. Menton should be made also of several earler gfts, $3, from the Chcago Club, $ from the New York Club and $ from the Phladelpha Club. Requests were sent also to the varous classes havng reunons last June, and the responses ncluded $50 from 1881, $175 from 1891, $100 from 1906, $170 from 1908 and $800 from A number of reunon gfts were also devoted to ths purpose pror to the appontment of the alumnae commttee, notably $300 from 1906, $2,001 from 1908 and $1,000 from There have been some large gfts from ndvduals, ncludng $500 from a member of 1906, $500 from a member of 1908, and $1,000 from a member of A sum has also been rased through the sale of "Gold and Blue" cards at Chrstmas tme, n whch the alumnae and undergraduates joned. At the last report the total amount credted to the fund was $22, A large part of ths money s on depost wth the Natonal Shawmut Bank of Boston, and a smaller amount wth the Wellesley Natonal Bank, all accounts drawng nterest. In May the alumnae commttee sent to all alumnae of the college a crcular contanng two suggested plans for the buldng, drawn by Mss Elza Newkrk, 'oo. Both plans are smlar n man outlnes, provdng for an audtorum wth a stage, a dancng and banquet hall, parlors for alumnae and students, small dnng-rooms and ktchens, and offces for several college organzatons. Wth these plans as a bass of dscusson, t s thought that alumnae, through local clubs, or ndvdually, and students stll n college, may furnsh valuable and muchneeded suggestons as to the necessary rooms to be ncluded n the buldng and the most desrable arrangement for them. The buldng s to belong pecularly to the students and alumnae, and should represent, as far as possble, ther wshes and deas n regard to ts constructon. As a result of the consderaton of these tentatve plans, there has come an nterestng new feature n the announcement of gfts. At ther thrd reunon n 191 1, 1908 set asde $170 to be used for the corner-stone of the buldng. The class further undertook to rase a defnte sum for ts ffth reunon gft to the fund, votng that ths sum, together wth the money prevously contrbuted by the class, should be used n payment for the large loungng room, undoubtedly to be ncluded n the buldng. The,

30 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS 21 class s dervng ncreased enthusasm from the knowledge that ts work s for a partcular porton of the buldng. Other organzatons wll, no doubt, be nterested to make defnte dspostons of ther gfts. The amount of money necessary for a buldng such as Wellesley requres s large, from $100,000 to $150,000. We have made only a begnnng, yet a good one. The contrbutonsw, hch are beng receved steadly, ndcate a gratfyng enthusasm among the alumnae. When the alumnae commttee has developed a more comprehensve plan of appeal, progress should be stll more rapd. The alumnae commttee begs for expressons of nterest and suggestons for the work from all the alumnae. May not each and every alumna contrbute to the fund some amount, no matter how small, ths very year? If that s not possble, contrbute advce and deas. Any one of the commttee wll receve gladly any suggestons. Help us to make the dream a realty n a very few years. Alce Crary Brown.

A tendency toward greater unty of organzaton n alumn bodes s becomng the salent feature n the evoluton of alumn assocatons of the leadng colleges and unverstes. Only a small proporton of the alumn of, for example, any eastern college resde n the East; but the alumn are west and north and south. The problem of untng alumn of such vared actvtes becomes the problem of securng greater alumn effcency a factor equally desred by alumn and alma maters. Datng back to the early ncorporaton of Wellesley, t s true that the college owes much of her present lberalty to the dversty of characterstcs brought her by students from all parts of the country. When those students become alumnae they return to all parts of the country. Ther alumnae nterests n the Board of Trustees are meanwhle fathfully conserved by ther three alumnae representatves n that body. Ther connecton, on the other hand, as ndvduals, wth ther Alma Mater s through one general organzaton, wth but one general meetng each year the annual busness meetng of the Alumnae Assocaton. The attendance on that occason s largely by members of reunonng classes. Ths does not nsure geographcal representaton. At that one meetng, moreover, there must be massed the busness of the assocaton for the prevous twelve months, and reports of eleven commttees heard, and recommendatons dscussed and adopted. As has been found true n other alumn assocatons, the largest power ever gven Wellesley's graduate body was the prerogatve to elect from ts membershp three representatves on the Board of Trustees. There s ths mportant fact, however, to be held constantly n mnd, that that drectorate, n ts capacty as the Board of Trustees of Wellesley College, must consder fnancal and academc questons and educatonal polces of great scope. It mght often happen, therefore, that matters of great educatonal weght would have to be neglected were alumnae affars to clam an unfar proporton of ts delberatons. Justce on both sdes would naturally suggest the advsablty of establshng what Dartmouth alumn have most approprately called an Alumn Clearng House. There s stll a thrd factor to be taken nto consderaton, that of the Wellesley clubs. Throughout the country there are but twenty-two regstered Wellesley Clubs, only fourteen of whch compled last May wth the request of the Executve Board to send ther annual reports to the assocaton. There are, therefore, almost seventy-fve per cent, of the alumnae who are not members of Wellesley clubs. There s, n consequence, a large proporton of alumnae who are not cognzant of what the actve alumnae are dong and what they themselves mght do to promote the nterests of the college, from ether the undergraduate or alumnae vew-pont. Ther nactvty need, by no means, ndcate lack of loyalty, ablty or generosty. But ths has been due to lack of opportunty offered them for defnte acton or system. Ths lack of system shows n so many detrmental results that to counteract the one and obvate the other the Executve Board of the Alumnae Assocaton presented at the recent busness meetng of that organzaton the plan for a Graduate Councl. From the tme snce the Executve Board came nto offce, t has felt that there was need for a bond between the alumnae and the college admnstraton; and t beleves that ths need wll be met by a small representatve (. e., geographcal) defntely chosen graduate body, whch shall act as a clearng-house for the larger Alumnae Assocaton. The Executve Board recognzed also as an addtonal reason for organzng such a graduate body, that t was necessary to do

31 22 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS so f the Wellesley Alumnae Assocaton s to keep abreast of the actvtes n smlar organzatons. The plan, therefore, of organzng such a body, to be known as the Graduate Councl, was therefore presented as one of the recommendatons of the Executve Board for the consderaton of the alumnae, and voted upon by them at the annual busness meetng of the assocaton on June twenty-frst. The purpose of ths councl s defntely stated n that plan as follows: "That, as our alumnae are ncreasng n large numbers and are scattered more and more wdely, t wll be of advantage to them and to the college that an organzed, accredted group of alumnae shall be chosen from dfferent parts of the country to confer wth the college authortes on matters affectng both alumnae and undergraduate nterests, as well as to furnsh the college by ths group the means of testng the sentment of Wellesley women throughout the country on any matter." The rest of the plan wll be later quoted n full. The value of co-operaton between a college and her alumn s a recognzed fact that has taken defnte shape n many of the leadng unverstes and colleges, as, for example, at Prnceton, under the name of "The Graduate Councl." At Yale a smlar body s known as the "Alumn Advsory Board;" at Smth as the "Alumnae Councl," and at Dartmouth a smlar organzaton s proposed under the name of the "Auxlary Commttee of the Dartmouth Alumn." Wthout excepton, these smaller graduate bodes, known as councls, wth ther subdvson, n some cases, nto actve commttees, have become agents, as t were, for the larger alumn assocatons. Each of the councls above mentoned, Dartmouth excepted, has already been establshed for fve years; and the effcacy of each one can be readly seen even n a bref record of ther admnstraton. The Graduate Councl of Prnceton was the frst of ts knd n the country, and snce ts ncepton the secretary, Mr. H. G. Murray, has asssted n organzng graduate councls at sx other unverstes. Durng ts exstence at Prnceton, ths Graduate Councl has collected about three mllon dollars for runnng expenses and general endowment; t has brought the unversty and schools nto closer contact, soldfed the alumn, and brought them nto closer touch wth the admnstraton, and proved tself of great value n many ways. The work of the Graduate Councl of Prnceton Unversty s easly recognzed to be of great scope; and t consders that the secret of the success of any councl depends upon the qualty of the membershp. In the case of that at Prnceton tself, the rule of droppng any member who fals to attend two consecutve meetngs excludes the drones. At Yale Unversty the dea of an Alumn Advsory Board was frst offcally endorsed by Presdent Hadley n hs report of June, After referrng to the loyalty and generosty of Yale alumn, t was the opnon of Presdent Hadley that t s Yale's "duty not only to lay specal stress on those parts of her work, where the co-operaton of a large and loyal student body s necessary, but also to seek by every possble means the advce of her graduates and to admt them to the largest measure of control of her affars whch the condtons wll allow." 1904, Yale's need seemed very great for a body of alumn who should come from all sectons of the country and meet less frequently than the Yale corporaton. Ths problem was eventually solved by Presdent Hadley's proposton for an Alumn Councl "truly natonal n ts representaton and gvng to the alumn of the varous parts of the country that voce n the councls of the nsttuton to whch they are so well enttled." Ths plan, orgnated and developed by the secretary of the unversty, Mr. Stokes, became what s now known as the "Yale Alumn Advsory Board." The proceedngs of ths body are now of such mportance that n the mnutes of the corporaton there s ths statement: "Any communcatons from ths board shall be regarded by the corporaton as prvleged busness, to be consdered wthout delay." Matters referred to ths board have been of the followng nature: Regardng the advsablty of ncreasng tuton charges, unversty representaton at alumn meetngs, ways of preventng the Sunday exodus and methods of stmulatng undergraduate ntellectual ambton. Harvard alumn have no graduate or alumn councl so-called. The nearest approach s afforded by the board of twelve drectors of the Alumn Assocaton, and also by the Board of Overseers, chosen by the alumn. Ths board conssts of thrty men elected n groups of fve for terms of sx years. The Harvard Corporaton conssts of seven men, usually resdng near Boston. But as the Board of Overseers meets less frequently, ts members can and have come from as far west as Seattle. Although these bodes at Harvard are not graduate or alumn councls per se, yet they were mentoned to show that the famous Massachusetts unversty values geographcal representaton also. Fve years ago the Smth alumnae establshed an Alumnae Councl. Its need was expressed by the presdent of the Alumnae Assocaton as follows: "As our alumnae grew n numbers, we found t more and more dffcult to keep them n touch wth the college and wth each other, though ndvdually most loyal. Our alumnae trustees wanted a smaller body to go to or to refer to." In All of these objects

32 . THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS are acknowledged to have been realzed by the Smth Alumnae Councl. Dartmouth alumn have expressed ther need for a councl n these pertnent words: "The remedy for ths stuaton les n some acton analogous to that already taken by many of the other colleges and unverstes, the creaton of a new alumn organzaton to act as a clearng-house for alumn affars and as spokesman for alumn sentment." The effectve work of graduate councls, such as those brefly descrbed, seemed to justfy the proposton that Wellesley alumnae also should have ther Graduate Councl. Through ts agency there s predcted a practcal means for the college to approach ts alumnae on a workng busness bass; and through ts co-operaton Wellesley alumnae, even n dstant sectons, wll be gven the opportunty to evnce ther loyalty to ther Alma Mater by actve support of old and enthusastc organzaton of new Wellesley clubs. Whle the plan for the councl allows for fve members-at-large from scattered localtes where there are no Wellesley clubs, yet these would by no means be representatve of the large body of alumnae the almost seventy-fve per cent, who are not members of a Wellesley club. In order for Wellesley, therefore, to secure n proporton to the number of her graduates, as just a geographcal representaton n her new Graduate Councl, as s true of the unverstes and colleges that have been heren consdered, a large number of new Wellesley Clubs must be organzed. Ther rato of representaton n the councl s stated n the second secton of the plan, whch follows: Plan for the Graduate Councl.* *Presented by the Executve Board and voted upon 1 at the alumnce busness meetng, June 21, Object. 2.

That the famous Irsh Players at the Plymouth Theater, Boston, have scored a phenomenal success s evdenced at every performance when the seatng capacty of ths beautful playhouse s severely tested. Not only has the theater-gong publc raved over the remarkable genus dsplayed by ths wonderfully clever organzaton, but the conservatve crtcs of the entre Boston press unanmously declared them to be the one great dramatc novelty of the decade. For example, the Boston Post sad: "The Irsh Players scored a tremendous success when the fnal curtan ended the wonderfully-realstc clmax of Brthrght;' the audence were carred ' away by ther enthusasm for the artstc smplcty of the Irsh Players, and applauded for more than fve mnutes." The Boston Herald sad: "These plays were acted wth a smplcty, a regard for the effect of the ensemble and a desre to serve the dramatst, that are rarely found on the stage to-day;, these actors remnd one of the best tradtons of the French school." The Boston Amercan sad: "The genus of true actng was seen last nght at the Plymouth Theater when the Irsh Players thrlled a great audence by ther splendd producton of three of ther plays; t was the naugural presentaton n Amerca of a stage style whch, n many of ts fea- THE ARCHWAY BOOKSTORE.

It could not exst f we could not clam the good gft of sympathy f we could not fnd our keenest gladness n standng shoulder to shoulder wth other people. That s a bg thng to be sayng, but t s true. Not the fneness of selfcontrol, nor the tranng n responsblty, nor the good enthusasm and devoton to an deal, s what makes the mnds of alumnae turn back to Student Government n memory and desre.

Moreover, they are the ones who do not care to thnk clearly and to feel deeply, who have not found out the proud meanng of "communty" and "control." Truly, Student Government s a thng for enthusasm, for cheerng and for prde. It s a thng for more than that for thnkng, for determnaton, for splendd advance.

On the frst Sunday of the college year, September 24, n accordance wth the custom of the college, an address was delvered at the vesper servce, n memory of Mr. Durant. Ths year the speaker was Mss Louse Mannng Hodgkns, Professor of Englsh Lterature from 1877 to Mss Hodgkns frst emphaszed the value of a good start. More s ganed by a good vew at the outset, she sad, than by much actvty afterward and, because of the too great mportance of the place whch thngs are apt to take n the mnd, the necessty of takng stock early of the great and good sprtual nhertance left us by our founders. Because tongues cease, and knowledge vanshes away, because the beautful thngs whch surround us are ours n materal form for four bref years only, our nhertance, whch s somethng that we can take away and have for our own forever, s the most permanent and valuable gft of our college. Ths nhertance brngs wth t dutes, responsbltes; all nhertances are to be preserved, well used and handed down. When they are very great they bear taxes, as ours bears ts tax of loyalty. But our nhertance s unque, nasmuch as to understand t clearly we must know somethng of the nature of ts gver. Yet, Mss Hodgkns sad, she dd not wsh to descrbe and characterze Mr Durant, as t s part of our prvlege to make up for ourselves a portrat of hm, from the many thngs we hear about hm; she wshed only to let us see hm n her pcture of memory, so that we could see wth our sprtual eyes that beneath every beautful thng of nature or art n Wellesley are wrtten the words: years."

Mr. Durant was a slght man, always dressed mmaculately n black, wth eyes keen as a lawyer's should be, but gentle as a wse, good man's are, and wth a halo of wavy slver har. Hs step was alert; hs whole form llumnate wth lfe. Always he was gudng, plannng, encouragng, gvng ndvdual help to ndvdual students. The keynote of hs earnest advce n chapel or to ndvduals was often "Make frst thngs frst." Once Mss Hodgkns stood lookng at the mornng world from College Hall Hll, when College Hall was the only buldng of the college. Mr. Durant, comng up, asked f she saw what he dd. And when she asked what that mght be, he ponted out the hlls round about. "On that hll a Scence Buldng, on that an Art Buldng, over there a Gymnasum, and there an Observatory." Such was the man who left us our great nhertance -wse, farsghted, wholly consecrated to the purpose that was n hm. The frst great treasure of the hertage he left s self-sacrfce. Mr. Durant beleved wth John Strlng that the best educaton s worse than the worst f self-sacrfce s left out. Belevng so, he founded hs college on sacrfce. The second treasure s the love of beauty, a "soul nstnct wth beauty;" the thrd s lke t the -love of books. For these two purposes Mr. Durant flled the college wth beautful thngs, and then gave t hs own personal lbrary. A fourth treasure s the love of frends, and the ffth and greatest, Chrst frst n the lfe, so that the lvng may be safe and sane and wholesome. And the whole nhertance, wth all ts treasures, makes up our vson, our deals, whch are to become our judges.

The program ths year was an unusually nterestng one. The department had been so fortunate as to secure the servces of the remarkable chld volnst, Irma Seydel. Lttle Mss Seydel s the daughter of a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and a pupl of Loemer. She s only fourteen years of age, and one of the very few real muscal prodges. In August, 1 910, she had the great honor of playng wth the Cologne Symphony Orchestra under the drecton of Stenbach. Her performance on Monday nght gave a stll greater assurance of her power. Mr. A. F. Denghausen, a bartone who has gven a great deal of pleasure to Wellesley audences n tmes past, gave a very delghtful rendton of some of Schubert's and Schumann's songs, and a group of charmng Englsh songs as well. Assocate Professor Hamlton of the Musc Department played four panoforte compostons wth hs usual brllancy and fnsh of technque, a Prelude n C by Swnstead, a Prelude n A by Paul Corder, the Ffth Barcarolle by Rubnsten, and the Rgoletto Fantase by Lszt.

40 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 31 WOMEN WORKERS' WAGES. Apropos of the Englsh strke, an edtoral prnted n the London and Manchester Daly News for August 22, gves ncdentally an nterestng account of the work of Maron Bosworth, , and prmarly a valuable comparson of Englsh and Amercan women workers: "Mss L. Maron Bosworth has drawn up a report on the wages of women workers n Boston that wll doubtless command attenton n ths country, as well as n the Unted States. The nvestgaton that led to ts preparaton was carred out under the drecton of the Department of Research of the Women's Educatonal and Industral Unon of Boston, and the result s n many respects startlng. As quoted by the Mornng Post yesterday, n a specal artcle from Washngton, Mss Bosworth, after studyng the ncome and expendture of four hundred and ffty women workers, has come to the concluson that those workers cannot support themselves n Boston under two pounds a week, countng fve dollars to the pound. But the nqury has shown that the average woman's wage n Boston s from sx to seven dollars, or twenty-four to twenty-eght shllngs per week, whle 'a great many grls and young women are employed at much smaller wages.' Employers are sad to justfy the starvaton payment on the ground that the grls lve wth ther parents, and that the earnngs smply supplement the famly ncome. But the fact remans that there must be a large proporton of women and grl workers who have no home n ths sense, who have to fght the battle of lfe on ther own account, and who must, whether n respect of food, clothng or lodgng, support themselves. Applyng that test to the women workers of Boston, the dsclosures are very dsquetng. Mss Bosworth, analyzng the poston of dfferent grades of workers, concludes that a woman must spend at least thrty pounds a year upon food. The grl clerk pays over sxteen pounds a year for rent, and the factory grl does not get off, on an average, under eleven pounds. Dress, agan, s n Boston a bg tem, runnng nto thrteen or fourteen pounds a year. How workers exst on the wage pad s a mystery. The wrter n the Mornng Post says that the mpresson left by the report s that ' the lot of the average woman wage worker s pretty dreary, and that her lfe must necessarly be one of tol and prvaton.' These are grm facts, and the pont for Brtsh readers s that n the Unted States, where women are supposed to enjoy a better poston than n ths country, the condtons of daly workng lfe appear to be harder than they are here. Tarff agtators would have us beleve that the worker n the Unted States s well off. Mss Bosworth's report s one of a legon of proofs that that s far from the truth." AMONG OTHER COLLEGES. Columba Unversty s to become the possessor of a model of the Fortune Theater whch was bult n London n about 1600, and n whch Shakespeare s beleved to have acted.

Wllam Butler Yeats, Irsh poet and dramatst, who s n Boston as managng drector of the Irsh players who are presentng modern Irsh plays n the new Plymouth Theater, gave an nterestng talk to a reporter of the Boston Transcrpt n explanaton of the partcular Irsh drama that he shows n Boston. "You may or may not know," he sad, as quoted n the Transcrpt, "that partcularly n the drama, there has been a great ntellectual revval n recent years. Formerly the sprt of Ireland was expressed n songs. Irsh wrters are now turnng to the drama as ther vehcle of expresson, and there they are meetng wth a success that compares very favorably wth the efforts of dramatsts elsewhere. Perhaps t s because they strve frst to please themselves, to be fathful to ther artstc deals. We are ntensely n earnest. We have a theater n London seatng fve hundred, where we have gven the larger number of our presentatons, and on the whole, although we have deferred to nobody, not even the government, we have ganed decded support, artstcally and otherwse. We have constantly encouraged Irsh dramatsts whether ther plays were lkely to prove popular or not. "There s so much n the Irsh sprt that offers materal for the dramatst that t seems to me t s mpossble for us to fal to make an appeal. And n presentng that sprt we go to the real sources for our materal, to the fundamental lfe of Ireland, that of the country folks. Ours s thus folk-drama, so to speak. "Our players are recruted almost entrely from amateurs. All the professonal tranng that they have receved has been obtaned n our lttle theater. How good that has been you may perhaps judge when I tell you that out of season they have been n demand even among Beerbohm Tree's companes. But then, the groundwork of ther art s sncerty, just as the groundwork of our Irsh drama s sncerty. "Such a movement as ours belongs to the awakenng ntellectual movement n Ireland. Everywhere n the country has come of late a new nterest n the arts. The study of Gaelc n partcular s a wonderful move, and t s makng marvelous headway. One of the greatest results from the study of Gaelc I beleve to be already notceable n a marked degree, the unty of the Irsh people. Gaelc s breakng down barrers everywhere, brngng the rch and poor together n a common nterest, and, what s the fne thng about t, n a better understandng. For the study of Gaelc has taken rch and poor alke nto the realms of the Irsh folk sprt. And that s precsely, too, what we are tryng to do n ths revval of Irsh drama." FREE PRESS. I. In one of the leadng magaznes the other day, occurred an artcle n the form of a letter to a daughter "On Enterng College." One of the thngs the father hoped hs daughter would lose n college was the dreadful "vox Amercana." And a nght or two ago one of the professors of modern languages, dnng n College Hall, exclamed, "Ah, the nose! In my country t would not be so. There one's country s always hushed, gentle."

But a professor of Englsh here once sad, " It seems to take grls a very long tme to get the true sprt of loyalty." Does t? Are we gong to wax dscontented, cyncal, even rebellous over the regulaton of student actvtes, whch chosen students and Faculty have found wse, and whch were read to us at the Student Government meetng on Frday?
