From the Beginning" Shows
Growth of Social Progress.
The pageant, "Up From the Beginning," which was written by Adele
Slade, was read by her at the meeting
of the Phllosophlan Literary Society
Wednesday evening. This pageant is
considered by the faculty who have
read it as one of the best things ever
written by a student. It is to be published next month In the quarterly
issued by the Education Department
and also in pamphlet form.
The pageant presents In allegorical
form, the rise of social progress, showing the contributions of Greece and
Homo and the movements of other
nations. It contains many theories of
the present day as to what factor contributed most to civilization and the
growth of social progress.
