PREFACE nr HE day after the Wellesley fire, an eager young A-reporter on a Boston paper came out to the college by appointment - to interview a group of Wellesley women, alumnae and teachers, grief stricken by the catastrophe which had befallen them. He came impetuously, with that light-hearted breathlessness so characteristic of young reporters in the plays of Bernard Shaw and Arnold Bennett. He was charmingly in character, and he sent his voice out on the run to meet the smallest alumna in the group Now tell me some pranks he cried, with pencil poised. What she did tell him need not be recorded here. Neither was it set down in the courteous and sym pathetic report which he afterwards wrote for his paper. And readers who come to this story of Welles ley for pranks will be disappointed likewise. Not vii PREFACE that the lighter side of the Wellesley life is omitted play-days and pageants, all the bright revelry of the college year, belong to the story. Wellesley would not be Wellesley if they were left out. But her alumnse, her faculty, and her undergraduates all agree thatthe college was not founded primarily for the sake of Tree Day, and that the Senior Play is not the goal of the years endeavor.
