realize that the moment is fraught
with something Intangible. The preS'

tant features of the program. The
high school is becoming more and
more of a social center. Along the
dramatic lines splendid performances
are being given. Many of them are
impromptu. The El Paso high school

way and it is gratifying to see the

Joan of Arc Is Inspiration
For Girls' School Exercises
SPRING would not be quite com
plete now in El Paso without the
touch of beauty that comes the
last of May with the commencement
pageant of the El Paso School for
Girls, which not only the pupils of
the school and their parents and
friends enjoy, but many people each
year look forward to. Invitations are
going out this week for this com
mencement, which will he held out of
doors, as usual, at the school, on Mon
day evening May 28.
Last year, the tercentennary of the
death of Shakspere, tho pageant was
"An oldc English Maye-daye of the
yeare 1609." Many people still re
member the gayety and grace of the
children in tho delightful old folk
dances and the village sports: and tho
real excellence with which the older
girls resented scenes from "As You
This seventh year of the school,
with the country entering upon a war
whose course and outcome no one can
forsee. it seemed most fitting to turn
the thoughts of the students during
these closing weeks of school life to
toe me ana spirit oi tne gin wno iuu
years ago turned the course of the
Hundred Years' war, and saved the
throne of France. So, for the past
weeks. Joan of Arc "the Maid of Or
leans, has been living again, and In
this far off country of which she nev
er dreamed, girls of the new world
have been following her. from her
quiet girlhood in Domremy. in the
fields now ravaged by a fiercer war
than ever the old world dreamed of:
through her struggles in court and
camp and field; through her triumph
when Charles the Seventh, spite of all
plots against him and the Maid, was
crowned king of France at Rheims
and all the people hailed her as deliv
erer and saint; down to the very edge
of the deepest shadow, wherein, be
trayed and sold by her captors, she
was turned over to the plotters, who.
traitors to their own manhood an to
the church they professed to serve,
burned her at last as a witch., and
knew only too late that they had
burned a saint.
In the play as presented by the girls
there is. of course, no attempt to give
the tragedy at the end, which is only
foreshadowed. Indeed, it is not a play
at all that Is being given, as that
would be far too great an undertak
ing for school girls to attempt. It is
rather, as the program says, "Scenes
from tho life of Jeanne d'Arc set
forth by students of El Paso School
for Girls. In the words of Percy Mac
Kaye. The school is specially fortunate la
being able to make use of parts of the
text chosen. "Jeanne d'Are, a Trag
edy." by Percy MacKaye, is tho play
given some years ago by Marlowe and
Sothern In New York and In a few
eastern cities. It is strictly protect
ed by copyright: but a most cordial
personal letter from Mr. MacKaye to
Miss Slater gives permission for the
school to use such scenes from the
play as they wish. Mr. MacKaye says.
"I am happy to have you do it. . . .
Perhaps you will send me a program
or some photographs. With best
wishes to your girls, and kind regards
to yourself, believe me sincerely
yours, Percy MacKaye."
The play itself is far greater than
any group of scenes taken from it can
adequately present; but even in the
parts chosen, the most Indifferent
must be somewhat aware of the beau
ty of the diction, and the high con
ception of the character of Jeanne.
