STATE CAMPAIGNS BRING SUFFRAGE
Mrs. Funk Tells of Success in Chicago
The first suffrage address of the year
was delivered by Mrs. Antoinette Funk,
Friday night, in Taylor Hall. Mrs. Funk
spoke of the advancement of woman suf-
frage in the last few years, and urged
the necessity of breaking down the bar-
rier of States rights. Her address was
particularly interesting in that it was
practical rather than theoretical. She
based her statements and arguments on
her own personal experience, on facts
which she had learned while working for
suffrage with Congress and with various
State legislatures, |
Although she ‘dealt partly with legisla-
tive questions which she herself apolo-
gised for as being “dry and technical”,
she held the interest of her audience
throughout the whole lecture. She in-
terspersed her “dry and technical facts”
with amusing accounts such as her en-
counter with a certain Senator who told
her that the women of New Jersey were
“household pets” and did not want the
vote, and descriptions of scenes in Chi-
cago during the women’s fight for en-
franchisement there two years ago.
“T think,” she said, “that far-seeing peo-
ple see suffrage approaching very close,
and through the State route”. First,
however, she said, “you must break down
that awful barrier which is constitutional
and political, which is built up in almost
every State against suffrage and against
progress in general. You’re not going to
be able to get the State nearest your
heart into the suffrage column until you
break this wall’.
As an example of the efficiency of State
campaign she spoke of Illinois, and the
success of the women there. In Chicago
now, she said, 73 per cent of the women
vote to 72 per cent of the men. She told
of the great changes the women had
made already in the two years since they
have had the vote, in the improvement
of the jails and sanitary conditions and
the abolition of the dance halls. This
change, she said, stands out as one of
the best arguments for the enfranchise-
ment of women.
COLLEGE WOMEN AND SETTLEMENT
Hilda W. Smith to Speak
Miss Hilda W. Smith, 1910, will speak
at an open meeting of the College Settle-
ment Chapter in the C. A. Library on
Friday night. She will describe some
phase of College women’s relation to set-
tlement work. ;
Two years ago Miss Smith led one of
the most profitable and well-attended
Bible Mission Study Classes of recent
years, in which social problems were
studied. Since she graduated in 1910, she
has done much practical social work and
has studied two years at the School of
Philanthropy. A pageant, which she man-
aged in a small town in New York State,
brought the people together as a com-
munity and gave some of them the first
opportunity for good amusement. She
has had charge of several clubs in New
York and is at present doing village work,
awakening the people to their civic re-
sponstbilities and organizing clubs.
GOOD-BYE, HOCKEY SEASON
Captain Branson Gives Report
This year Varsity won from Lansdowne,
New York, the Alumne, and Baltimore,
and lost to Germantown, Philadelphia,
and All-Philadelphia. M, Branson, Var-
sity captain, says: “The result of the All-
Philadelphia game was a great disap-
pointment, for the hockey season has
otherwise been successful and hopes were
Ligh this year that Varsity might win
against their invincible opponents. Be-
ginning with the fall of 1908 Varsity
has played the All-Philadelphia team
every year except 1911. Last year and
two years before that the score was a
tie. During the entire series of games
All-Philadelphia has scored 35 goals and
Bryn Mawr 19.
“Although the game this year ended
with the score 6-3, it was not from lack
of good playing or good spirit. The best
work which Varsity has done this season
was done during the first half,
Varsity slackened in the second half it
made a splendid come-back in the end,
and finished honorably if not victori-
Miss Branson says that the early part
of the season was promising for the big
game. “Varsity won the first game
against Lansdowne. After the loss of the
next two games, the Varsity committee
bent all its energies toward preparations
for the All-Philadelphia game. Special
practices were started and Mr. Newhall,
who played on the Oxford Varsity, Eng-
land, saw the last practise and gave us
some valuable advice”.
“Eleven players received white notes,
and seven subs received blue notes, The
back field was composed of the same
steady players who made Varsity last
year, except that M. Bacon took the place
of V.-Litehfield, who was moved to the
forward line. She, with L. Brown, P. Turle,
and two Freshmen, J. Hearne and M. Ty-
ler, made a fast and sure forward line. Of
the subs, C. Fiske and A. Stiles distin-
guished themselves in the All-Philadelphia
game. Everyone who has been posted to
play has shown splendid spirit in the
games, practises, and training. The in-
terest in hockey has been strengthened
by the teas and luncheons given for the
visiting teams, after which Varsity dis-
cussed the points of the game and made
suggestions for plays’”’.
The Varsity committee for this year
was: M. Branson, F. Kellogg, M. Thomp-
son, M. Bacon and Miss Applebee.
Those who made B.M.’s as Varsity were
L. Brown, G. Hearne, V. Litchfield, M.
Tyler, P. Turle, H. Harris, M. Branson,
M. Bacon, M. Thompson, J. Pauling, A.
Werner. Those who made B.M.’s as first
subs were F. Kellogg, M. Willard, A.
Stiles, M. Peacock, M. Russell, C. Fiske.
COLLEGES IN KHAKI
At a recent meeting the Harvard Stu-
dent Council expressed itself in favor of
military preparedness and of military
training for all members of ‘the Univer-
sity. Four hundred students have al-
ready volunteered. The question is such
a burning one throughout the country
that it seems probable that all men’s col-
leges, who have not already done so, will
soon declare themselves on one side or
the other. Cornell bas had required mili-
tary training for several years and it is
practically assured that Dartmouth is
about to institute it. The University of
Michigan senate recommended military
training this fall and the University re
gents will consider the matter in January.
SIDE LIGHTS ON PLAYWRITING
Dr. Savage Explains Baker Courses at
Radcliffe and Harvard
Most Bryn Mawr students think of the
courses in drama at Harvard and Rad-
cliffe as something remotely wonderful or
else do not think of them at all, but Dr.
Savage, who has taught at Radcliffe and
has worked with Professor Baker at Har-
vard, really knows. In the following arti-
cle, written for “The News”, Dr. Savage
shows the remarkable scope of the work
and emphasizes the fact that its stand-
ards are not purely academic, but ap-
proach closely those of the professional
stage. Dr. Savage writes:
“More than any other one agency, Pro-
fessor Baker’s English 47 and English
47a at Harvard and Radcliffe have helped
to break down the supposed barrier be-
tween the professional stage and aca-
demic work, Reform of the American
drama is not their purpose; Professor
Baker would be the last person to urge
that such a thing were either possible or
desirable. Their object is to provide
training in playwriting for those under-
graduates and graduate students who
show sufficient aptitude.
The Baker’s Dozen
“The conducting of such classes is not
‘the task of the novice at teaching. Eng-
| lish 47, say at Radcliffe, is an elementary
course limited to a dozen students. For
admission the consent of the instructor
is necessary, and it must
through a competition, in
plays form the basis udging the fit-
ness of the can es. Many feel them-
selves called to write plays, but few are
chosen. Once having gained entrance,
the student listens to lectures on dra-
matic technique and writes scenarios,
adaptations, and original one-act and
three-act plays. If she passes the course
‘with distinction’,.a-term-—which permits-

Two printer’s errors were made in the
Library Report published in the last issue.
The total number of volumes in the
Library on October 1, 1915, was 77,221,
not 1722, and the amount given by the
alumnzw was $30.00, not $39.99.
Suppose that a class should go through
three years of College without seeing
Seniors set apart in caps and gowns, and
led away to their Orals as though to an
ordeal. Suppose that they had sent no
flowers to express their sympathy for
those whose sufferings they were told
Suppose they had never
been warned, “Beware of your Fate, you'll
find that Orals are: flunked while you
wait”, and had never heard of the “tri-
umvirs”. In short, suppose they came to
Senior year without having worked up
terror of what every Senior class must
experience. It would be safe to say that
that class would have at least ten per
cent fewer failures in the first Orals than
are usual now.
Undoubtedly Orals are a very serious
matter. As long as they require so much
extra work and as long as chances to pass
them are limited, they will be dreaded.
But if we could only get rid of these arti-
ficial methods of encouraging nervous-
ness beforehand, the stock phrase that
“Orals are nothing but a test of nerve”
would lose much of its applicability.
The article on play-writing printed in
this issue, is a revelation as to what we
are not getting at Bryn Mawr. Not only
do we lack a Professor Baker, a “Work-
shop” and a John Craig who offers pro-
fessional production as a prize,—these
things perhaps are supplied to Radcliffe
more by fortune than by good manage-
ment,—but we have not even a co in
play-writing, nor have we a single course
in modern drama. . Shaw, Galsworthy,
Pinero, Yeats, and the other dramatists
of to-day are touched upon at the end of a
two years’ course that begins with the
origin of language. Of Livingston Platt,
the scenery painter, of William Archer,
the critic, and of countless others who are
vitally influencing plays and play making,
we hear nothing. Why have we not seen
this opportunity that lies in the many fas-
cinating phases of the present-day drama?
It is an opportunity for real work, work
that counts, and it has been neglected so
far because of the persistent barrier
which, in so much of our work, stands be-
‘tween academic standards and anything
ap to date.

New Magazine Recommended
To the Editor of “The College News’:
I am wondering if the students have
seen the “World Outlook” for December.
This magazine, which is just celebrating
its first anniversary, is recognized by all
who know it as one of the most brilliantly
edited in the world. For wide and au-
thentic news of the work of extending the
kingdom of Jesus, from the leading work-
ers in every department of life’s activity;
for wonderful photographic illuminations,
made possible by skilful camera “click-
ers” in all the nooks and corners of the
earth, and for fresh, vigorous treatment
of every topic presented, it has no su-
A world outlook it gives indeed, for its
interests encircle the whole world. The
students will find it on the table of the
Christian Association Library. I hope
they will read it and call the attention of
their friends to it, for their own profit
and that of their friends.

The Depravity of the Umbrella Borrower
To the Editor of “‘The College News’’:
Two girls were standing by the de-
pleted umbrella stand in Taylor, looking
ruefully at the torrents of rain outside.
“Let’s write a letter to ‘The News‘
“Oh, they’d think we cared about losing
the’silly umbrellas, and it’s just the prin-
ciple of the thing”.
Now I have never lost an umbrella (I
never had one), and I feel that I can write
on behalf of those who care only for “the
principle of the thing’, but must refrain
from expressing their rage because of
personal loss. An umbrella has, of
course, an impersonal appearance, but it
is not community property. However, I
am not wishing to attack those who “ac-
quire” an umbrella, and, forgetting in the
course of time that theirs was one with
a knobby brown handle, continue placidly
to use one with a straight black handle.
That implies carelessness, of course, and
perhaps a failing mind, but it does not in-
volve any moral delinquency. And the
“loss” of an umbrella, once for all,
arouses only mild indignation and regret
on the part of the original owner.
But there is a righteous indignation
which can hardly be excessive at the de-
pravity and temerity of the “borrower”
who can take an umbrella from the stand
in Taylor in the midst of the downpour,
and return it to the exact spot the next
day, for the owner to find, when, as she
opens Taylor door, the umbrella stand is
bathed in a flood of sunshine!

True Sport in Question
To the Editor of “‘The College News’’:
While people are busy complaining
of the lack of college spirit here at Bryn
Mawr in proportion to the abundance of
class-spirit, I wonder if it has ever oc-
curred to them how unnecessary and
even harmful much of this so-called class-
spirit is. Far be it from anyone, espect-
ally an undergraduate, to criticize true
class-spirit, that indefinable something
that holds seventy or more girls together
with a common purpose, that puts the
germ of success in a class play, or that
gives the punch in the final rally to win
a hockey game. But when class-spirit
has gone so far, and instances are all too
many, that the opposing teams actually
hate each other, and one’s nerves are
stretched to the breaking point in terror
lest the rival class banner will hang

M. de Montoliu, at the piano, played the
necessary improvisitation and explained
the purpose of each exercise.
In an interview after the performance
M. de Montoliu explained that the pur-
pose of Eurythmics was to bring the body
into complete co-operation with the music.
and, in more advanced work, to reproduce
“the inner feelings and atmosphere as
well”. During the lesson the teacher im-
provises the music and the student is
compelled to feel the rhythm and inter-
pret it without knowing before what it is
to be. Great stress is laid on this inter-
pretation as, besides learning grace of
movement, “the student is always kept on
the alert, he learns to concentrate rapidly,
acquires a high degree of self-control, de-
velopes the faculty of quick response, and
finally establishes so perfect a connection
between mind and body that the last be-

A class in eurythmics is to be started
in College. It will meet on Wednesday
and will count as drill for Juniors and
Seniors and as a third period of exer-

from now until the end of the Gymnasium
POST SEASON HOCKEY GAME
Varsity Defeats Baltimore, 13 to 4
Varsity defeated Baltimore on Satur-
day, 13 to 4." From the start of the game
it was clear that the Baltimore team was
no match for Varsity. V. Litchfield and
P. Turle each shot a goal within the first
three minutes of the game. The Balti-
more forwards attempted long passes in-
stead of dribbling, except for the left
wing, who made several fast runs. The
first goal for Baltimore was made by the
centre forward after the left wing had
rushed the ball down; the second was
made by the left wing after a long run.
Varsity forward line did good passing,
but had no organized backfield to inter-
fere with their plays. Six more goals
were shot in the first half for Varsity,
making the score 8-2.
The second half started with a goal for
Baltimore. The Varsity defense did in-
dividual work rather than team play, but
succeeded in keeping Baltimore from
shooting till after Varsity had gained five
more goals. L. Heisler, who was playing
Varsity goal for the first time, made two
very good clean stops. A. Chambers,
Bryn Mawr, ex-’11, who played right in-
side, shot the last goal for Baltimore,
making the final score 13 to 4.

Prizes for the Plays
“The success of these courses would
be less were it not for the stimuli which
Professor Baker has carefully organized
and fostered. They consist in, roughly,
the possibility of production by the Har-
vard Dramatic Club, which often per-
forms long and short plays by students or
former students; the MacDowell Fellow-
ship, which provides a foundation for
students of promise; the Craig Prize, the
annual gift of Mr. John Craig, manager
of the Castle Square Theatre, Boston,
which is awarded for the best play sub-
mitted by a student in these courses, and
which embraces a purchase of books on
the drama for the library, a cash sum for
the recipient, and the privilege of pro-
duction on the professional stage; and
“Workshop” Is Laboratory of Drama
“Of these the Workshop needs a spe-
cial word. The organization, a company
of accomplished amateurs connected with
Radcliffe and Harvard, is exactly what
its name implies, a medium for trying out
plays. Each year some half-dozen per-
formances are given before specially in-
vited audiences, whose frankest criti-
cism in writing is strongly solicited. At
present, plays are performed in the thea-
tre at Agassiz House, Radcliffe, and, in
spite of difficulties of staging, experi-
mentation is successfully carried on not
only in production, but in lighting and
scenic effects as well. The value of such
laboratory practice for both student and
teacher cannot be overestimated and the
Workshop has contributed much to the
success of the courses in dramatic com-
