You, the Seniors, are eager for
the wider experience toward
which you move next year. That
spirit is right and good, You
have made a fine contribution
during your years of training at
Columbia and it is with confi-
dence that I see you go your
ways to college years.
I know of no better advice to
you at your Commencement
time than to recommend that you
read, and act upon, the following
quotation from Samuel johnson:
"Life affords no higher plea-
sure than that of surmounting
difiiculties, passing from one step
of success to another, forming
new wishes, and seeing them
gratified. He that lalmors in any
great or laudable undertaking
has his fatigues first supported
hy hope, and afterwards reward-
ed hy joy . . .
To strive with difliculties, and
to conquer them, is the highest

E IIEIIICATE THIS BUUIQ
To our "Mademoiselle" and "Senorita" we dedieute this hook
with affection. VVe shall never forget your unfailing sense of humor
and merry spirit which have so brightened our days here at Columbia.
Through your teaching you have given to us 11 better understanding of other
people, and their ways of life.
ln lenyinu, we your "little Yeesesu don't want to say "good-bye" to you, hut "nu reyoir,"

He touched the rim of the glass before him
with strong tanned fingers. It was the only cool
object in the dark room of hot music, hot argu-
ments and smoke. He knew his eyes were staring
but he made no move to correct them. He thought
"T. Peck Rockwell . . . Telson Peck Rockwell
. . . Rocky." After a minute he got out his pen
and wrote it on a napkin as he had often written
it on a check. HT. Peck Rockwell III." It looked

It was hot, the way jazz was meant to be. It was
his kind of music, the way Chopin and Rodgers'
waltzes were his kind of music.
"Hey," said Mark, "There's old Bill Worth,
must go say hello to him."
Rocky looked into his empty glass. He had
decided definitely that he was not a snob. He
was glad to be friends with anyone who interested

him. Of course there were those who did not

"Well," Otis said, "I just think I'll have another

The boys who did not interest Rocky were the
Harry High-School boys, the ones who wore
corduroy jackets and blatant ties. He would
give them a chance though, certainly. But more
than likely he would then deny them a place in

The boys who did interest Rocky were with
him now. None of them were snobs. They had
come from good families, not necessarily wealthy
ones. Across from Rocky were john and Otis,
the first short, deep-voiced and kind, the second
handsome, sensitive and friendly. Next to Rocky
sat Mark, lucky, humorous, willing to please.
They were good friends, these four. They con-
sulted and gave advice. They discussed intellec-
tually, they had a heck of a good time. At present
they were disappointed.
" . . . those Basin, Basin, Basin street Blues."
Otis beat his hands on the table. They were good
thin hands. There was nothing wrong with those
hands of Otis'.
They were good men. From good prep schools
and good towns. They were above the average
mentally, socially. They were good men. Not one
of them had been accepted in Hasty Pudding.
They spoke of everything but this phenom-
enon. The dance at Westport they had so suc-
cessfully crashed. The coup of getting to know
Debbie Reynolds. They had never made fools
of themselves. They were not making fools of
themselves now. They were pleasantly and cheer-
They decided that Anne Lowell was the great-
est girl any one of them knew. They concluded
that the boys who said they fiunked out because
of the war scare were liars, and that if they
fiunked out it was because they were lazy. They
were lazy. But they had worked hard on this
Hasty Pudding thing, and they had not been
"Therels a Harry High-School" said john.
In misery they took apart the Harry High-
School. They criticized his dress, his hair cut, his
walk. They ordered four more scotch and sodas
and drank them miserably. Then they walked
back to their rooms, pausing once to watch a
freshmen rally in the square. They went on to
their fireplaces, letter writing, night caps, and
double decker beds. There T. Peck Rockwell
silently cried himself to sleep.

Betsy stirred the coffee slowly with her spoon
and watched his thin hands carefully light a
match. They shook so very little, she thought,
without meaning to notice if they shook at all.
She had been going to be so careful not to notice
things like that. It had been explained countless
times. Don't expect too much. She had waited a
long time to be able to smile into his eyes with
her own, now she dared only watch his white
fingers lighting a match.
Don't expect too much at first. W'ar is difficult
ro live tlfrrouglv. Coming home is a second battle.
Try not to expect . . . change is inevitable. . .
Had Nick changed? She looked up from his
hands slowly, white shirt, red and blue tie, collar,
throat. Suddenly she could wait no longer. She
looked gently, yet searchingly into her brotheris
face. The clear eyes met hers for an instant, then
fell to the cup of coffee before her on the table.
He grinned a little. Her heart stumbled in its
"Strong enough for you?"
"Yes. Where did you ever learn to make good
"I learned to make bad coffee on a snow bank
over there. This was easy."
She laughed. And it was hard for her to laugh
at that. She saw him bending down to light an
impossible fire, watching his pot of coffee anx-
iously, waiting to be warm again. She saw the
blue fingers of his friends taking it eagerly, hold-
ing it to their cracked lips.
"Coffee hour was the happiest time of day,"
he said, remembering, "or coffee minute, if there
was any excitement." She wanted him to tell her,
but that was as much as he offered. She looked
past him at the piano by the doors and wondered
if he would play again. Here, Button-nose, this's
for you! The songs were there as he had left
them almost two years before. Sing Iohnny One
Note, Sing out with gusto!
If he had changed, how? He was thinner,
needed a hair cut. He looked older, but he had
been through a great deal. Almost shyly she be-
gan telling him about his old friends and what
they were doing. Would he hate it that they had
not gone to war? Would he hate George for his
job on the newspaper, Phil St. john for being
able to finish school? As she talked she silently
begged him to tell her how he felt. Oh Nick. Nick.
Let me help. Only give me something to go on.
lust something that will mean "I ha'ven't changed,
not since we listened to 'Tom Mix' together at
supper, not since we tumbled laughing into the
house after skiing, not since we won the club
tennis tournament. Not since the times we sat
with Cynthia and Bud listening to Louis Aim-
strong, or sailed with them that night at the cot-
tage. I hafoen't changed. I hafuen't changed since
New Y ork when you said goodhy that last time.
I ha'uen't changed. Pm always Nick."
She drank her coffee, put it down and smiled
into his eyes. She had wanted him to be the
same so terribly that, within her at least, he was
the same. He smiled back.
"I'm glad you haven't changed, Bets," he said.
So he had worried, too! He had expected her to
be different! Perhaps he, too, had been told, Don't
expect too much. He had expected her to change
and he, too, had been grateful. His eyes followed
hers to the end of the table, went further to the
piano. He stood up.
"This one's for you, Button . . . " It was quiet,
tender. It was Laertes to Ophelia, William
NVordsworth to Dorothy. It was the epitome of
Patricia Goodwin, '52
As I float down through the still, starless night,
flake upon Hake, whiteness against whiteness, I
begin to wonder where I shall settle to spend the
last few seconds, minutes, or hours of my life.
In what part of the world shall I drift down?
Who will see me as I sink to earth?
fl ll i if
I may be the snow that conceals the white clad
patrol as it skims down the mountain in search
of the enemy.
if li if it
Perhaps I shall fall, unnoticed through the roar
and sulfuric stench of guns, to melt in some dying
young soldier's blood. Before the peaceful blanket
of death completely shrouds him, he may gaze at
me with fever-laden eyes, remembering his home,
his girl, and the fun he had as a boy in the snow.
Y if i i
Maybe I shall not bring sadness or memories
which will soon be forgotten. I may fall past a
lace-curtained window where gay African violets
bloom. Above these plants an old Frenchwoman
may stare at me, remembering the fun and popu-
larity that came in her youth when the snow fell.

A pink slipper may be a contrast to my white-
ness as a tiny foot is daintily placed on me. I may
even be picked up and held in the billowing folds
of pink net and swept into the ballroom, only to
melt in the gaiety.
Il K if 'U
Then again I may delight some small boy or
girl who has never seen me before. I can almost
see the surprised looks on their faces when they
feel me and find that I am cold. Then there will
be the tender looks on their parents' faces as
their children ask, "Daddy and Mummy, what is
it? Where does it come from? How is it made?"
1 il ll IK
Perhaps I shall be the snowball that will break
the school principal's window, and cause five boys
with chagrined faces to enter the office and
render an abject apology.
K i ll It
A dog may use me to bury his newly received
bone, concealing it within my depths, confident
it will be in the same place when Spring comes.
Sli 11 if ik
I may be the snow that makes the slalom race
a thing of adventure and courage. Two shining
skis may spray me, like a thousand tiny diamonds,
into the air, as the skis twist and turn between
the red and white striped poles.
I may be the long awaited snow that puts the
final coating on the Olympic Ski jump.
QF ll? fl if
Perhaps I shall be the snow that answers all the
prayers for a white Christmas, and makes Santa
Claus seem more real than ever.
I am destined to drift slowly down to some
place, whether famous or unknown. I am destined
to bring joy, sorrow, or old memories. I am
destined to die, as all things must, somewhere--
but where and how? That is the question.

WAITING . . . DISAPPOINTMENT
The atmosphere of the cafe is almost unbear-
able . . . Smoke rises and drifts restlessly above
the heads of the excited Frenchmen on all sides
of me. Funny thing about the French, they are
always excited-even in the heat they will come
up to me and gesture wildly to make me under-
stand what they are saying. If only they would
slow down, then it would be easy. This heat . . .
The door opens and the tendrils of blue smoke
swirl out into the seething darkness. Maybe she
is coming . . . but no . . . just another stroller
from the Seine. She promised . . . she won't let
me down . . . the smoke fascinates me . . . the
way it spirals up from the countless cigarettes
drooping from unconcerned fingers. Each cigar-
ette has its own wreath of smoke which rises to
the dim ceiling and mingles with the smoke of
other cigarettes in one hazy cloud. The cigarettes
before me in the cracked tray . . . their smoke
must be hidden in the smoke above . . . strange . . .
The door, swinging inward again . . . surely it
must be she . . . She said she would meet me here,
here at this table. What other table could it be?
Is this not the table where we sat when I took
her hands and told her that she was my very life?
This has always been our table . . . our very own.
All alone in this corner where we could sit and
watch the noisy Frenchmen around us. The door
closes . . . a huge burly man staggers down the
steps to the bar . . . Oh, why doesn't she come?
The door again . . . maybe? . . . no, just another
man for a glass of wine. The promises we made,
are they forgotten? . . . surely the hours of hap-
piness we spent here in this very corner must be
dear to her as they are to me . . . Spring . . .
Summer . . . Fall . . . YVinter . . . Spring . . .
Summer . . . she must remember. Everytime I
think of the walks in the park . . . Paris in the
Spring . . . My heart pounds madly.
Its hot in here, unbearably so. People every-
where . . . old men . . . young men . . . young
women . . . old women. People . . . heat . . . men,
perspiring, drinking . . . smoke. Women . . .
warm perfume, suffocating perfume, perfume
that makes your head spin . . . She wore perfume
. . . sweet and warm. The heat . . . smoke, swirling
toward the ceiling.
Ten o'clock, that's the time when she usually
meets me. She may have been held up . . . she
will come! The door . . . no . . . smoke . . . I can
barely see the door, when it opens it brings no
cooling draft, only more humid air pushing its
way into the stifiing room.
K K if 'lf
It's cooler now . . . The smoke seems to dis-
appear as I watch it . . . where? It's funny the
things you think about when you have all the
time in the world . . . She said she would come
. . . The tables, with chairs upside down on top
of them make grotesque shapes, but stand harm-
less and lonely in the shadows . . . Why didn't
"Monsieur, you must leave now. It is almost
"Yes, Antoine, I'm leaving . . . but if she should

f'Sure, Antoine . . . Maybe tomorrow . . . "

"Eek!" cried a voice from below, and Poio
leaned his head over a thread of his web and
looked scornfully downward. There, seated be-
low, were the three Smiths and a guest. It was
the guest who had shrieked. Poio was disgusted
with the girl. What was harmful about himself,
a poor, innocent little spider, who had made his
home with the Smiths for a number of months
now? He was just beginning to feel at home be-
cause he'd had time enough to establish a head-
quarters in every corner of the living room, so
that he didn't have to go very far when he wanted
new food and a clean bed. Since the atmosphere
was just beginning to get so homelike, Pojo hated
to have somebody come along who didn't think
that spiders were a legitimate part of every
In his former residences, there had always been
people with such notions, usually officious
women, who came around with cloth-covered
brooms and brushed away his homes. When
people intentionally destroy one's home, it gives
one the feeling that one is unwanted. Well, Pojo
refuses to be pushed around, but he doesn't like
to inconvenience people, either, if he can help
itg so Pojo eventually left these residences, and
after a good deal of gallivanting, he finally found
the Smith house. That was three months ago, how-
ever, and by now Pojo was beginning to look
like a satisfied bachelor. He was a little plump-
er, his black and white stripes had begun to
stand out more distinctly, and all in all he looked
like the perfect "catch" for any desiring young
spider belle. All the young lady spiders used to
turn up their noses at him because he had been
so thin and shrunken from having moved so
much. He had looked gray and dingy. But now
Pojo wasn't gray, but beautifully black and white.
And since he had settled down, he had time to
clip all the fingernails on each of his six legs, and
not just on one leg every night as he used to do.
Yes, Pojo was really thriving.
But it did disturb him when his presence ex-
cited the Smiths' company. The Smiths, Mrs.
Smith especially, had been very kind to him in
his need. Please don't misunderstand me, though.
It wasn't that Mrs. Smith didn't keep the house
clean, or anything like that. She was a very metic-
ulous person. But she did belong to the Humane
Society, and she included spiders in her concep-
tion of animals, and thought therefore that it was
necessary to be kind to them. This was very
much to Pojo's advantage, and, believe me, he
reveled in his comfort. And because his bene-
factors had been so kind to him, he thought that
it was his duty to repay them in every way pos-
sible, so whenever the Smiths had company he
tried to be thoughtful and hide under or behind
something. He always remembers with glee and
also contrition the time that he hid at the base
of a flower pot, and a rather large woman picked
up the pot, saying, "My, what a lov- eek!-a
spider!" and staggered backwards in alarm, drop-
ping the pot with a crash.
VVell, on this particular night, Pojo was feeling
facetious, so, instead of hiding, as usual, he
crawled along the edge of the ceiling to one of
his homes which was located chummily over the
dining table. Once there, he stationed himself con-
tentedly, and smiled a wicked smile. The little girl
guest, who was surveying the room from her
seat, glanced up at the ceiling and uttered the cry
previously recorded. Pojo, after looking down-
ward, started to get up and methodically began
to spin a thread down toward the table. Lower
and lower he swung until he was within about
two feet of the table. Here he hung by his toes
and stared at the little girl, who by now was at
the other end of the room, biting her fingers and
screaming. Then, receiving an angry look from
Mr. Smith, he scrambled back up the thread and
sauntered awav along the edge of the ceiling, his
While idly resting with his eyes closed, the
next day, Pojo was rudely disturbed by some
bristles prodding at his back. Presently he found
himself being uncontrollably carried on the end
of a broom toward the open door. Once outside
he was abruptly deposited on the cold lawn.
"Well," he said huffily, "There's just no love in
this world!" and haughtily departed.

"LET THERE BE LIFE"
It is spring. Everywhere green is budding forth
in hundreds of different shades. The whole world
seems to be garbed in a new robe, all fresh and
full of life. Everywhere life is going on with a
Everywhere? No, not quite. In a small hospital
room high on the fourth floor lies a little girl. For
her there is hardly life itself, yet she has courage,
and with courage a great will to fight, to live, to
The door to her room opens and admits a
nurse and two orderlies. The girl is only semi-
conscious. She has been given drugs to make her
drowsy in preparation for the anesthetic and-
the operation. She is gently lifted to the stretcher
and covered with a sheet, then wheeled out. The
nurse walks noiselessly beside the stretcher as it
rolls down the corridor. Inside the operating
room, the little girl is again lifted-this time to
the operating table. She stirs and murniurs some-
thing softly. The nurse takes her hand, while the
doctor speaks to her in a reassuring voice.
Now the little girl is conscious of figures mov-
ing about and bending over her. She is once more
inhaling "that peppermint-smelling stuff." fThis
is not her first operation.j The figures seem to be
dancing weirdly, now on the floor, now upside
down on the ceiling. She can hear faintly the
hushed whispers of the doctors and attending
nurses, but it is as though they are speaking a
foreign language that she cannot understand.
She feels herself falling, yet she is strapped
firmly to the table. She is standing on the edge of
a high cliff. The cliff gradually gives way and
she is falling . . . down . . . down . . . into the
dark abyss of unconsciousness . . .
The operation has begun.
Marilyn Pucci '53
There's only one boy in my life. His name is
jonnie. I see him everyday. Almost always he
is very sweet. He is a good conversationalist and
also good at acrobatics. He isn't a very fastidious
dresser-but then who wants the boy in your
life to be "just sol"
He is very tactful and clever. One day he came
up to me and said, "Know something, I like you!"
I would've done anything for him then. As a
matter of fact, I did. He wanted somthing Nfvery
important" done that instant.
Quite often he eats supper with us. I remember
one night in particular. We were having Haasen-
pfeffer for dinner. He couldn't pronounce it
even though he tried again and again. Maybe, if
he had been just any boy it would have seemed
queer-but with jonnie, it just added to his
jonnie has the ability to flirt with a girl without
making her or anybody else angry, as some boys
might have the bad fortune to do. No one can
resist him at these times.
Sometimes he comes up to me and says all sorts
of fiattering things, with a devilish glint in his eye.
I used to be taken in by that, but now I know that
he only does it when he wants something or has
a guilty conscience. Then is my time to watch
out. Nevertheless, I always do what he wants or
help him out of his embarrassing situation. I don't
think I'll ever learn!
Some days I look out the window and see
jonnie sauntering across the backyard with his
hands in his pockets-and inevitably a dirty old
shirt on, and dungarees worn thin at the seat and
knees. His hair at these times is never combed-
come to think of it, it very seldom is. His hat, the
one with the dog-eared felt muifs, is set at a
ridiculous angle. His shoes are thick with dust or
mud, as the case may be. All in all, he makes a
very appealing picture, as I think, "There goes
my little brother, jonnief'

SO MUCH FOR A DOG
A small chubby face pressed itself against the
window of the Pet Shop and stared wistfully at
the sad-eyed little puppy dog inside. "I just know
he wants to come home with me," the small boy
told himself. "No little dog wants to be kept in
that big, awful old pet shop all the time." The
child played his finger up and down the glass,
watching the dog's tail Wag back and forth with
the pleasure of having someone pay attention to
him. Then remembering his mother home alone,
waiting for his return, the boy said aloud, "I have
to go now, little puppy dog, but don't you worry,
cuz someday I'll take you home with me forever
and then you won't never have to come back
here again." Giving the dog one last look, the
child turned and ran in the direction of home.
His mother was putting what little food there
was for supper on the table when he reached the
flat. The boy noticed immediately that she was
very tired, as she always was at night. Though
she was still young, her steps were heavy and the
lines across her forehead were deep. Years of
supporting herself and a small son had not been
easy for her. She looked up at the sound of the
"Come here, Bobby," she said. "There's an-
other button off your coat. My goodness, but it's
hard to keep you looking decent!"
The boy ran toward his mother. "Oh, Mom,
you got to let me have him. He wants me to have
"What, Bobby?" She pulled his shabby coat
from him and counted the missing buttons.
"The dog, Mom," Bobby said excitedly. "I got
to have him. You'd love him, Mom. I-Ie's so sad
looking. I just know you'd love him."
"What dog, Bobby?" she asked, laughing.
"You're going so fast I can't keep up with you.
Now start over . . . slowly."
"Well," he began, "you know that pet shop
down on the corner, Mom . . . Well . . . "
"Pet shop," she interrupted him. "Pets cost
"I know, Mom, but it's not much. I asked the
man in there yesterday and he said it was only
five dollars, that's all . . . Aw . . . please, Mom."
There was a long silence. The mother of the
small boy looked slowly around their meager
flat. She took in every detail-the old wooden
furniture, the pot under the place where the
roof leaked, the dime store dishes on the table.
There was so much to spend her small supply of
money on besides a dog. To her, five dollars
meant eight hours of hard and grinding labor. If
only she could explain to the eager child beside
her that she simply couldn't afford to buy him a
dog. If only she could show him all the things,
so much more important, that she must save every
penny for. If only she could tell him, and make
him understand, that food and clothing had to
come first. Her eyes rested on his patched shirt
and his out-grown shoes, but then, meeting his
happy, expectant eyes, she knew her answer. She
would never he able to say no to this excited
little boy, waiting for her to speak. Her new coat
and the curtains would have to wait till next
year-after all, she didn't need them, anyway.

Carolyn hurried into the door, her arms laden
with packages, topped by a branch of holly. She
plumped them down on the cheap, stuffed daven-
port and took off her coat. Quickly she began
to undo the packages, one by one. Most of them
contained food, bought with money that had
been saved for weeks. She unwrapped the small
turkey proudly and carried it into her tiny kitch-
en. Placing it in the icebox and piling the rest of
her packages on the counter, she returned to the
Carolyn's eyes turned toward the mantel.
Propped up on the top of it was a piece of yellow
"Will arrive ll A.M. Christmas morning," it
read. "Love, Jack."
It was what she had been looking for for weeks.
Anything to let her know that her husband would
be home for Christmas. Yesterday, it had come.
Carolyn sighed and sat down on the daven-
port. "ll A.M. Christmas morning." Tomorrow
was Christmas. And today, she had gone to the
store and bought everything her pocketbook
would allow-things she knew jack would like.
First, holly with lots of berries, then turkey,
dressing, good vegetables, squash pie. It was all
here. All she was waiting for was her husband
to complete her picture. She leaned back against
the cushions and, exhausted from her shopping.
The next morning dawned clear, crisp and cold.
She straightened the tiny apartment and put the
turkey in the oven. The table was set, everything
else was ready, and she was too nervous to do
anything but pace the Hoot and comb her hair.
She made quick trips to the kitchen to look at the
turkey and to assure herself that everything else
was ready and waiting-waiting for him.
As the clock was striking eleven, Carolyn ran
to the window. A taxi was drawing up in the
street below. A tall man in an army uniform got
out, paid the driver and came into the building.
She had not been able to see his face.
She waited breathlessly for the door to the
room to open. After a minute or two, she heard
a knock. She frowned. It was funny that jack
should knock. Slowly, she opened the door and
found herself face to face with a tall man in the
khaki-colored uniform of the army.
"Yes," she replied.
"I'm Captain Downing, your husband's com-
"Yes," she repeated, slowly.
"I have to tell you- . . . " he began, looking
away from her.
Carolyn closed her eyes and listened to him.
Soon his words were just a muffled sound to her
ears and she could catch only fragments of the
horrible story he was relating.
"Coming around a corner-the car swerved-
unavoidable-died on the way to the hospital."
Captain Downing raised his tired eyes to hers.
He could catch nothing in her dead stare. He
cleared his throat.
"Here's something he wanted me to give to
you. He wrote it right before he . . . "
She held out her hand and took the crumpled
note. Without looking at it, she smiled.
"Thank you, Captain," she said dully.
"I'm sorry, Mrs. Wakefield," he replied and
started for the door. He opened it and before
going out, turned and looked at her.
"lt's funny how a man can go through a war
without a scratch, then come home and . . . "
he gestured hopelessly.
I-Ie nodded his head and went out.
Carolyn stood motionless, staring ahead of her.
Slowly, she lowered her head and looked at the
"Always remember that I love you, darling.
She repeated it several times, as if trying to
find some hidden meaning in it. The note Hnally
fluttered to the floor.
Carolyn turned and started for the kitchen.

Water is nice.
It can be steam, or ice.
The best water is cold-except, of course, a hot
NVater can be deep or shallow.
The sun determines its temperature.
VVater is good.
It can quench your thirst.
VVater can be used for swimming in summer
Or skating in winter.
Water can save homes from fire,
Or destroy homes by flood.
But water as we know it is our friend.

The stones are cold through my woolen skirt
A million tiny shivers tingle my flesh
I wait . . .
A leaf dances dejectedly from its barren home
Slowly circling, then swooping softly to the earth
I watch . . .
A dingy little cat stretches its thin paws
Towards its own small fleeting shadow
I listen . .
The wailing wind plays with the wild autumn
It grows dark.
