Members of Wyvern, junior honor
society, were entertained at a din-
ner Thursday night in the League
building. Miss Grace Richards, Ad-
visor of Womer, and Mrs. Myra B.
Jordan, Dean Emeritus, were
After dinner Mrs. Jordan talked
informally about the beginnings of
Wyvern. A group of juniors used to
participate in Freshman week ac-
tivities, and they did not want to

means, "protecting dragon." Fol-

Malaprop. Trunks swirling about
one's head are mere trifiles. This is
backstage and things like that hap-,
The impression that she had
given on the stage was of extreme
energy and vitality. Her age must
be nearing the seventy mark, but
she has looked as triumphant on
the last curtain call of "The Rivals"
as a young girl. I wanted to heap
her strong voice say that the the-
atre is worth everything one can
give it.
As a light slanted across the
darkness from her dressing room
door, she appeared, a diminutive
figure hidden under a brown coat.
Mrs. Fiske, at last. Her first words
were not revealing "I'm delighted to
meet you, my dear," and she gave
me her hand. It was strange that'
the look of triumph was gone com-
pletely. Instead she looked very
tired and very old.

Her face is little. Underneath her
eyes the black pencil lines still
showed. She seemed so small and
weary looking that I wondered how
I ever imagined any other picture
of her. Her voice was so soft that I'
had to listen attentively to hear
My first question, it occurred to
me must seem quite inane to her.
Is a stock company more valuable
for theatre training than college?
But in a sweetly tolerant manner
she only said, "How can I tell you
that, my dear? Each one must work
out his own salvation. You see, the
priceless part about giving advicer
is that you know nobody will fol-
low it." A know or a hope, I ques-
tioned. 'Both, my dear", and the
look in her eyes was one of infinite
The obvious weariness surround-
ing Mrs. Fiske led me to say, "It is
worth it all, isn't it?" Her answer
was characteristic, "Ah, if I were to
answer that I should have to write;
'three volumes."
Such an interview leaves one
confused and perplexed. Where was
the forceful voice; where was the
aliveness and the laughter? Whore
was the success in her eyes? But I
forget! She is an actress.

As I write this column, I can't l
help thinking of ,the dizzy blonde!
I double dated with last night. We!
called her the Pathe Review Girl'
because she told the News of the
Day and had the Eyes of the World.
I don't know what the professors
think about it. but I think it is a
lot of foolishness. I mean this prac-
tice of going to classes in hot
weather. They. mustthink it's ano
endurance contest to see how many
minutes out of forty a person can
stay awake.
Ever since last Sunday, one mightI
think that Michigan was a college
for disabled veterans, or maybe the
campus has suddenly gone Eng-
lish. The way these Seniors swing
their canes! Well, it just isn't safe
to be about. The only use I can see,
for the canes, is as an aid in getting
up the theatre aisles on Sunday
I am fully conyinced that when
worse movies are made, Ann Arbors
will still show them. Having seen
"Dulcy" and her "best of well-ven-
tilated families" and Fairbanks at
the Maj. a'cting like the college
sophomore, it was with great relief
that we spent the evening with
Mrs. Fiske and heard her, as Mrs.
Malaprop, chatter about "pine-1
apples" of good breeding and "alle-
gories" of 4he Nile.
And now, gentle readers, I will
let you stop and think how far you
would have been through the Daily
if you had not stopped to read this
