1935 Cedrus Yearbook

CEDRUS PLAY After a lot of hard work and strenuous practice, the Cedrus Play proved to be a success. Every man, even a bachelor professor, is subject to a lady's charm. Though he stoutly de- clared himself a woman-hater he nevertheless throws over his resolutions to never be bossed by the fair sex on the disturbing interference of a woman's smile. This happened to the three young professors in "Bachelor House.'' Three professors, Robert Harriman, as Larry; Ralph Tindall, as Tommy; and Joseph West, as Darty, will not be forgotten as they were taken in by three lovely ladies, Luella Robe, as Aunt Kate, the would-be housekeeper; Mary Waddle, as Rose, who pretended heart attacks in order to stay near Tommy; and Carma Hostetler, as Edith, who was a former admirer of Darty. The comical side of the play was made hilarious by the antics of the Swedish housekeeper, "HuIda," played by Eleanor Bull, and her grocery boy lover, "Oley," played by Russell Mur- ray. We cannot forget HuIda's little sister, a trifle dumber than HuIda, portrayed by Harriet Ritenour. Let us not overlook the match making Doctor Rumsell, played by Donald Burkert. Many comments were heard about the play after it was given, so those who took part in the play feel well paid for their efforts. COMMENCEMENT 1934 Commencement activities closed the Fortieth Anniversary week for Cedarville College. The exercises were held in the Opera House on Saturday, June 2. The processional started from the Library led by Eleanor Bull and Carl Ferguson. There were eighteen seniors, eight graduates of the two-year course and one graduate in music. The honors conferred were in keeping with the celebration: two summa cum laudes, Lois Cultice and Ruth West; nine magna cum laudes, Glenna Basore, Margaret Berk, Doris Hart- man, Walter Kilpatrick, John Murray, Beatrice Pyles, Regena Smith, Nina Stevenson and Jane West; one cum laude, Paul McLaughlin; five Doctors of Divinity, David J. Brigham; Walter Avis Condon, William Hawthorne, Robert L. Hutchinson, and Philip J. May; one Doctor of Laws, Roy H. Brown. The address was delivered by the President of Tarkio College and one of Cedarville's own graduates—M. Earl Collins. It was both entertaining and educational. The music was furnished by an ensemble f-om Xenia. CEDAR DAY 1934 All friends of Cedarville for miles around gather for the festive occasion of the year, Cedar Day. The Cedar Day celebration held in connection with the Fortieth anniversary week was one of the best in the history of the college. Regina Smith, the lovely May Queen, was crowned by the queen of the preceding year —Doris Swaby. She made a very pretty picture with her attendants grouped about her on a daisy trimmed throne. The orator of the day, Walter Kilpatrick, delivered an oration both entertaining and inspiring, fitting the occasion. There followed a program of dances and music for the entertainment of all. An Eliza- bethan dance, a dance of the Cherry Bloom, Scotch Dance, Minuet, Dutch Dance, Parasol Dance, Cannibal Dance, and the Maypole Dance—were beautiful in their costumes and set- tings.
