Today we are Good Counsel girls. We belong. We are a part of the
activities which make up the spirit of the school-which is Good Counsel.
For a year we have led the undergraduates, as Seniors always do, in all
the clubs and organizations of the school. Now the time has come for us to
leave and for others to take our places. Tomorrow we shall no longer be
Good Counsel girls, but graduates.
We can never hope to recapture the spirit of Good Counsel as we have
had it for the past four years. Though we may often come back to visit our
former teachers and look over the familiar grounds with remembering eyes,
it can never be the same. We shall be on the outside, looking in at the
unfamiliar faces of a new generation of Good Counsel girls. We shall be
like children coming back time and time again to gaze wistfully through the
pane of glass in a store window. The barrier will always be there-we shall
never be able to get inside as we were for tour happy years. Yet there will
be one consolation: we shall be Good Counsel alumnae.
Alumnae-and as such ours will be a special position in regard to the
school. We shall not be strangers: we shall have the memories of the tour
years we have spent here, the ideals which our priceless education has taught
us to cherish always-ideals which will be our standards all through lite,
and the pride which comes from being able to point out the peaceful expanse
of Good Counsel and say, "That's where I went to schoo1."

OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL
We have longed for this graduation day, ,
But as time for parting draws near,
Ours is a feeling of sadness
Awakened by memories dear
Of the peace we found in our Chapel,
The guidance, understanding and love
Of those we have known as our Sisters,
And of all blessings sent from above.
These We will often remember
Though our paths lead far from here,
For they have left an impression
To be treasured year after year.
And if ever our lives are troubled
Or the false is confused with the true,
We can ask, assured of an answer,
"Mother, tell me, what am I to do?"

"I heard from her about a month ago," answered Dotty.
"Her insatiable curiosity got the best of her and she thought
she'd like to go to Russia personally to see what conditions
were. She got on the wrong boat by mistake and finally ended
up in Tibet where she ls now writing a book about the Llamas.
I was thrilled when her novel 'Igloo Escapes' won the Pulitzer
prize last year. 'Dan Cupid-Gone for the Duration' foreshadowed
greater things to come."
At that moment a limousine drew up to the curb. There
was a sudden tension in the room. The very first woman
President of our great country was about to enter.
The door bell rang. Pat quickly took her place at the

grand piano and struck the opening chords of "Hall to the Chlef."
With bated breath the Class of '43 watched the door slowly
open. The long awaited moment had arrived.
"Hello, everyone, l'm so sorry l'm late but I just did my
nails and the polish wouldn't dry."
"Terry Finucane, is that the way for a President to make
her entrance?" exlaimed Pat, banging the piano. "We expected
something like 'My friends,' etc., etc".
"My goodness. it's much too hot for a Fireside Chatl l-low
is everybody? Does anyone have any Iergen's lotion?"
Unnoticed by the excited, chattering qoup, the guardian
angel of the Academy of our Lady of Good Counsel sat happily
on the mantelpiece with a huge blue book under his wing.
He carefully opened it, diligently licked a gold star and pasted
it beside "The Class of '43" with a resounding smack.
"Very, very good," he murmured. "Um-huhl Yes, gratifying
to say the least."
l-le then closed the Record, tucked it aside and sat back
to listen to the chatter that ensued.
"lust like all women," he was heard to say, "trying to
make up for ten years in a few hours. Tskl Tskl"

CLASS PROPHECY '
Gerry Coffin looked carefully around the living-room of her
Washington home cmd decided that everything was in order.
The chairs in place, the tables dusted, she was ready for the
arrival of her guests, her old classmates from G.C.A. It had
been many years since she had seen some of them, for it had
taken the occasion of this memorable presidential inauguration
to bring them all together. But this was indeed an event-the
inauguration of the first woman President of the United States.
"To have the luck of having been a classmate of such a
celebrity," thought Gerry with a sigh, "and to have her here
tonight for dinnerl"
The doorbell rang. In a moment the first guest rushed into
"Why, Sheilal" said her hostess. "You look out of breath."
"I just flew in from Chicago," Sheila gasped. "Gerry, I
won itl I won the round-the-world race in my strato-plane. Oh,
I'm so happyl" '
"Yes, I know. I saw a picture of you in the paper, holding
a gold cup," laughed Gerry. "You were wearing a smile like
a Cheshire cat. That reminds me, how's Daisy-Iune's great-
"She has four klttens," answered Sheila. "By the way, I
parked my helicopter on the back lawn. Will it be in your way?"
"No," said Gerry. "Oh, Sheila, I'm so glad you're here.
I'm afraid I won't recognize some of the others: you'll have to
Footsteps in the hall made them both turn.
"Hello," said a tall, young woman with a deep voice. "I
couldn't help overheating, so let me help you out. I'm-"
"You don't have to tell us that," broke in Sheila. "We
recognize Ioan Reilly when we see her. Your picture is always
on the theatrical page these days. That new play you're in is
quite a hit on Broadway. What is lt the critics call you-the
new Katherine Cornell?"
"Well, that's a blt of exaggeration," Ioan answered, looking
embarrassed. "This is ay beautiful home you have here, Gerry."
"Yes, it's very comfortable, and I'm kept busy running it.
And then, of course, there is my husband-let's sit down and
wait for the others."
"Here comes someone now," said Ioan, and Gerry rose to
greet two young women.
"Why, Carol Metzler and lrisl" she cried. "l haven't heard
from you since we left school. I heard of the beautiful gift you
donated to Good Counsel, Iris, after your marriage to that
millionaire. That was a lovely gesture, having an escalator
installed in the Academy building. But what have you been
"I have an orphanage in Pennsylvania. It's hard work,
looking after the children, but such funl Do you remember how
I wanted to be a dietician? I have a wonderful time planning
all the meals."
"Aren't you going to admire my dress?" asked Iris, and
everyone looked at the light green silk creation which beauti-
fully set off its wearer's red-gold curls. "Everyone does. It was
designed by one of our former classmates, who asked me to
tell you that she couldn't attend. I-Ier clothes-designing business
is so successful that she can't be spared, even for a day. They
say that Mildred Landry is one ofthe prime reasons why New
York is now the fashion center of the world."
"The dress is beautiful, and very becoming," said Ioan with
appreciation. "l must see Mildred when I return to New York.
and ask her to design an outfit for me."
Gerry, who had left the group to greet a new arrival, came
across the room with a smiling girl whom everyone recognized
"Monica Toomeyl" Sheila exclaimed. "I never thought a
celebrity like you could get away from Hollywood to come to
"I just finished a picture," said Mona, blushing a deep
pink, "and now I'm free for a while."
"It must be hard work," Iris remarked, "dancing in front
of a movie camera all day." -
"It is," sighed Mona, "but I love it so I don't mind it. In
my next picture I'll have a change, because besides dancing,
I'm going to sing."
"Speaking of slnglng," Gerry said, "I suppose everybody
knows that Margie is the vocalist with Ilmmy Field's orchestra
"Yes, 'I heard her on the radio, just the other night," said
"She wrote to tell me that she couldn't come today,"
Gerry informed her guests. "The band is playing at the Para-
mount and Margie can't get away: the contract calls for her
to sing at every performance."
"That 'reminds' me," said Mona. "Rody won't be coming
either. She just can't leave her business. Have you heard of
'Aunt Rosaleen's Cakes and Pies'? Rody insists on supervising
the baking herself, and even puts the icing on with her own
hands." X l
"So that's who Aunt Rosaleen tsl" exclaimed Carol. "Why,
'I buy her cakes and pies for my orphanagel"
"I'll tell Rody," Mona laughed. "lt ought to encourage her.
Who's this coming?"
"It's Connie-and Dorothy Harrold, tool" cried Gerry.
Connie looked tired as she walked into the room. "I've been
working on a new discovery at the lab," she said, "and I can't
quite get it right."
"I hope it's as startling and important as that new chemical
you received the Nobel prize for discovering," said Iris. "Were
you with Connie, Dotty?" '
"Yes. Being a reporter, I've been sitting around the lab
with a pencil in hand waiting for the great discovery. Connie
promised me the story for old times' sake, so I can scoop the
other papers. I wish she would hurry up for I'm neglecting
my job as Washington correspondent of the New York Sun."
There was a short silence as the two newest arrivals sat
down on a sofa and sighed apprectatively at the comfort.
"I don't suppose you have heard from Eileen, have you,
Gerry?" asked Dotty, starting the conversation again. As Gerry
shook her head, Dotty .went on. "She is, as some of you may
know, The Sun's most valuable foreign correspondent. About
a year ago she was sent to India to cover the revolution which
had broken out there. We got dispatches from her quite reg-
ularly until a month ago when they suddenly stopped short.
There are rumors that she has stumbled on something big in
India and can't give her location away by sending dispatches.
No one knows where she ls. I don't suppose she even received
your invitation, Gerry."
"Eileen certainly has a gift for getting inside news," re-
marked Connie. "I even took time off from my important work
at the lab to read her timely new book, 'Inside Afghanistanf
It was wonderfull She seems to know all the native chiefs well
enough to call them by their first names."
"Antoinette Sullivan will be a little late," remarked Gerry
a moment later. "As head of the distributing department of pic-
tures of current movie idols she is kept very busy. 'She and
Muriel will arrive together. Muriel is a Mrs. now, you know,
and her baby boy is the cutest thlngl"
The conversation came to an abrupt halt as a voice was
heard in the hall saying, "Oh, my glory-my hair's a messl
That trip-wasn't lt awful?" Ioan Harrigan fluttered breathlessly
into the room. "Hello, everyone. O dear, this business of teach-
ing isn't funnyl"
"We never thought you'd be an English, teacher," chorused
the group laughingly.
"Oh, well, Denise and I will carry on-or didn't you know
that she is un professeur de francais?"
"Not reallyl" interrupted a new voice and Carol Denzler
entered the room.
"Why dIdn't you wear your uniform, Carol?" Connie asked.
"We hear that you rival Florence Nightingale herself."
"You don't run around with a test tube in your hand all
the time, do you?"
"Oh, all right. The youngest nurses' supervisor in the United
States deserves an outing-but we are disappointed," Connie
"Did you all know that Maryjane has founded a hospital
in North Africa? She went there after World War " and she's
really made a success of her life. Catherine Barrett was down
there for a time as an X-ray technician, but right now she is
taking a vacation trip around the world."
"WashIngton is certainly being taken over by G.C.A. grad-
uates," broke in Mona. "I don't feel so bad paying my taxes
now that Kay Delaney is Head of the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
It's just like paying class dues-almost."
During the laughter that followed several sheets of music
fluttered into the room, followed by Pat O'Connor, who made
her well-known, breezy entrance. "I came as soon as I couId,"
she announced, after the welcoming din had subsided, "but my
concert took longer than scheduled. I just couldn't get away."

Well, tomorrow school begins again. It seems
that summer vacation has just begun when here I
am going back to school. Strange as it seems,
I am a little anxious to get back to see everyone,
the only dark spot on the horizon being the un-
pleasant prospect of homework.
The Peg-O tryouts for membership were
held and some of the future Katherine
Cornells of the Sophomores were ad-
mitted to the exclusive ranks. I won-

After such a wonderful Christmas sea-

seemed to mean much more than when
we were Freshmen. Maybe it's because

Tomorrow our graduation day will bring to a
close four years spent under the motherly care of
Our Lady of Good Counsel. There is, therefore, the
pain of parting mixed with the sincere cordiality
with which we welcome all our friends today.
These years have been happy ones and it is hard
to turn from a place we have grown to love so well.
Yet the familiar scenes of our campus, where we
have had so many good times, will form only a very
small part of the pleasant memories we shall carry
away with us. We shall recall more clearly the
kind, ever-patient guidance of our Sisters, their
willingness to help us and listen to our plans.
Through their labors we have received knowledge
and strength' of character: they have given us a
firm foundation on which to build a good Catholic
life, one in which we hope to do them honor and
thereby show our gratitude. From their fine example
we have grown closer to Our Lady, our patron and
ever-present source of consolation. We have come
to realize more adequately our need of her frequent
intercession and the guidance of her Divine Son.
Thus it is that we leave our Alma Mater sorrow-
fully, but with an overwhelming sense of gratitude:
hesitantly, but with eager eyes turned toward the

minute studying are making us realize
that it isn't possible to "burn the candle
at both ends," so, for the New Year, our
resolution is: "No more cramming."
Hm, wonder if we'1l keep it ....
By our sacrifice of a 1943 ALOYSIAN
issue and our united efforts to make

with the help of God and
