ALMA MATER Through the hours of work and pleasure, we have spent together here, Building up the golden treasure of success that's e'er so dear: Struggling straight and ever onward, with our motto strong and bright, We are bound to iight as comrades, for our colors, green and white. Fleeting time will serve to sever ties we've ever held so dear: Others will be bound together close in friendship and good cheerg But there's nothing e'er can shake us from our pledge of loyalty, And the battles will but take us through the joys to victory. Far beyond the dear old school days, looking back on mem'ries dear, They'll be more than golden rule days, seen through reason's vision clear. As we light in 1ife's great battles, striving ever for the right, Then we'll praise our Alma Mater and her colors, green and white.

THE ELLISIAN FIELDS REVISITED by the class of Nineteen Hundred a d F ty S Th Ell Sh 1 To the Graduate of Ellis School, the product of the Ellisian way: To the enthusiasm of her youthful aspiration, the un- swerving loyalty of her spirit, the effective criteria she has shaped for the journeying, and the inspiration of her promising achievements. We, the Class of 1946, dedicate this book. As the living symbol of these Ellisian ideals, we especially remember Anne Wellinger of the Class of l9-45. ANNE WELLINGER 1928 - 1946 MASTERS GF THE In the chart room of the Ellisian Sailing Company, on vigil by day and by night, sits our master of all voyages, Admiral Marjorie L, Tilley. At her side Vice-Admiral Mary C. Hutchinson wields the cat and charts all courses. Collecting and guarding all coin and tribute, Comptroller Margaret Gracey presides over the exchequer. 'Nearby, in charge of all ship's service, sits Officer Elizabeth Burnett. As liaison officers between the home oflice and the various crews, certain seamen meet now and then with the admiral, to forestall insubordination, brawls, and mutiny. HIPS AT SEA On this voyage, commandeered from the ranks, is First Class Seaman Gutsche. She is sturdily reenforced by Master Seamen Stewart and Schuchman, Seaman Taylor and Seaman of good ship Ellis Junior, Friday and Miller of the E S 48, and Burnett of the fresh Water fleet: a goodlie company indeed. CQAST WISE Coastwise trade is under the special care of Chief Officer Martha Wood, Small craft, piloted by Captain Doris Shreve and First Mate McAdams, ply busily hither and yon about the bay. They are a happy crew of artists, musicians, and showmen. Their chief cargo is books, pictures, beads, and puppets. Captain Harvey, a bit in the lead, follows much the same route. Her more experienced squad includes expert store- Left: B. G. Annan, J. Hol- brook, J. Bane, L. Zimmer- man, I. Rea, K. Jameson, C. DeNinno, C. O'Brien, N. Noyes. D. Horning, S. Weaber. Absent: M.

Veltman. keepers and tradesmen. Part of her equipment is a fair supply of adventures by sea and land. Chief Officer Wood commands more hardy seafarers, who venture beyond the bay to neighboring coves and harbors. In preparation for the still farther voyages of the years to come, they spend their watches studying the ways of all sorts of foreign folk. Most skillful of all, under this general command, are the doughty rivermen of Captain Carter's fleet. Ever watchful Second Grade with Miss Wood: L. Fleger, A. Evans. P. Young, V. Carter, N.

Eve HARDY ADVE TURERS This crew of enthusiastic sailors, eager for adventure and exploit, ventured from the middle class shores under the com- mand of Captain D. A. Ludebuehl. Mates Ellis, Montgomery, Pierce, Arnold, and Fell made up the special staff. Officer Arnold, on leave for the second half, was replaced by Mate Sweet in February. At frequent assemblies on board, the entire crew partici- pated in spelling bees, current events, song fests, plays, recita- tions and book reports. Upper seamen planned elaborate I-lallowe'en, Christmas, Valentine and Easter parties. Thursday nature study programs were received in the radio room. Book clubs were organized by Officers Sweet and Montgomery. Clothing and gay, handmade animals were sent to the children of Europe. Soldiers' homes and hospitals were sup- plied with favors fashioned by these clever craftsmen. On shore leave, they visited libraries, radio stations, and flower shows. ' .

We are indebted To Mates Currier and Manning for our vivid and accu- rate log: To Chief Linguists Vuagniaux, Ellis, and Shreve, who made us feel at home in foreign lands, and to Officer Hogg, who always quite rightly asserted that our patient study of Latin would be rewarded when We reached the Mediterranean lands: To Chief Chronicler Stevenson, whose astute anecdotes have stimulated interest in the ancient ruins along all, shores. To Alchemist Hutchinson, for those musterious intriguing elixirs which filled our hold continually with aromatic odors. THE SEVE EAS To Navigator Pickard, who Watched the glass and diligently charted our course, after Officer Skeath de- serted to the Good Ship Matrimony: To Chief Minstrels Fell and Cook, who emulated the sirens, when they led the crew in loud and lusty sea chanties. To Master Craftsmen Williams and Mantell, whose guiding skill gained an enviable reputation for our Iigurehead, from Iceland to the Orient. Last but not least, to Officer Dickey, in charge of knotted muscles and aching limbs, for our agility in scampering up the rigging. Our heads and hearts beaten but unbowed, we journey forth, singing grateful praises for the sometimes explosive, ever resourceful members of our masters at the helm. Eighth Grade, Left to Right: C.

At the start of this year's grim voyage, darkened by the clouds of knowledge, the officers aboard were Skippers Swan, and First, Second and Third Mates Foster, Carroll, and Chapple. ' The crew of the PT-8 has almost doubled this year. Much to our disappointment, two members deserted to Florida: but the several new members have added greatly to the spirit of the ship's company. Our numbers have always been outstanding for entertain- ment. In the past we have presented "Gareth and Lynette," and "The Violin Maker of Cremonaf' We have featured piano solos and fine recitations. This year Seaman List gave an astonishing speech on the Grenfell Mission. This was on the Ellis Guild program. Her knees shook and her voice quaked, but she pulled through nobly for a noble cause. All hands aboard are now busy either with plans for the Fair or rehearsing for the Dramatic Club plays. "All aboard! All aboard that's going aboard!" "Wait, for the love of Olympus, just a minute. Jupiter, l never thought I'd make it. I can't seem to stand up straight. If I could just lean up against a post-Oh, hello! I haven't seen you since we were freshmen. Seen any of the old crowd around? "Do you mean to say you haven't met the ship's captain? In the name of Apollo you surely recognize Marty Snowdon? She's in high favor with the gods these days. I even saw Old Neptune himself on the pier to see her off. In spite of his long green beard, he looked strangely like Mrs. Hogg. "Well I never thought I'd see any of our fellow-worship- pers of Athena on board this ship, but they do seem to be all about the place. Whatever is that odd shrieking?" "Oh, that must be the sirens. We don't usually ,sail so close, but I suppose this crew just couldn't resist. Bouncing Bacchus, think of the men they must eat: or I should say 'meet.' I've always thought it might be fun .... " At that moment, Zephyrus in anger blew the fair ship on to the very rocks of the sirens. So if you have ever won- dered who what became of this promising crew, they are still perched on a rock in the Aegean Sea, singing strange songs. Foolish mortals! They should have known that only people that behave get to the Isles of the Blest. Freshmen Left to Right: L. Lyndon, N. Austin, J. Barnes, G. Clark, F. Walton, S. Lyddon A Nimick, M. Snowdon, S.

It is fair sailing ahead with merry Fido aboard to sing, whistle, or spin yarns to the crew's hearty delight. With a mind for figures she startles her mates and masters by her amaz- ing geometric calculations on call. Straggles aboard late, as usual, just as "Anchors Aweigh" is called. There she is now, clutching her blue and gray lunch box, her sun- bleached hair flying in the breeze. Batten down the hatches, for here comes the celebrated galley scavenger. The ship vibrates with her boisterous laugh, as the crew gathers round to hear her tall tales. Tolli is known as the ship's confidential agent. She sees all, knows all, and tells all, with equal glee. Hear her contagious laugh? Hold on to your pockets, men, and watch your pay, for here comes our vigilant treasurer with ready figures in her head and a grasping hand for any tardy payments, Dodie is our golden haired Council member. Her sunny disposition and merry smile, as she throws you in the gig, would bring tears to your eyes. Our silent partner chuckles quietly to herself in obvious amusement at all our silly antics. She may say little, but we have learned that she never misses a trick Where fun is concerned. Friday, L. Hardie, S. Sam- As the good ship Ellis Junior set sail last September her skipper, Joan Seaman, took a good grip on the wheel, with Michael Taylor and Nancy Carter standing by as Mates. Seven of the crew had overstayed their leave and missed the ship, but four new voyagers have helped make up for the loss. The crew now numbers fifteen, a hardy company of various talents and interests. At two every Tuesday afternoon the seven representatives of the Singing Sailors scurry to rehearsal. N From time to time Peggy Wilson presides over emergency meetings ofkthe Ellis Guild on the main deck. On clear days, three members of the'Art Squad may be seen in the crows' nest-just painting. Recently terrified screams and pistol shots have been heard coming from the open companionway. At first it sounded like mutiny, but it has turned out to be our eight ham actors, practicing their parts for some dramatic didos. Joan Reed, vice-president of the Actors' Squad, has put a stop to the noise. Sometimes a light may be seen in the cabin late at night. It is probably the two Council members, conferring with the Admiral of the flagship, "Spirit of Ellis." Or maybe the four members of E.A.A. are planning some relay races to get the decks swabbed. After a quick checkup at mid-voyage, the crew started to work on plans for a deck prom. It turned out to be a grand affair and the ship was crowded with visitors. Senior crewmen were our special guests. With the help of our good ship "Faculty" we hope to pull safely into port in June. Then we shall receive a thorough inspection and be in readiness for next year's bon Voyage. Juniors, Left to Right: S. i McGranahan, J. Lappe, 3 M. Oliver, M. Walker, J. Seaman, P. Wilson, E. M.

Gay voices often join in singing hearty sea chanties. Seaman McNulty has begged and bullied her men, under the direction of Officers Cook and Fell, for a good showing ashore. The first such performance was at Thanksgiving services in a small port of call. Farther along, a detail from S.S. Shadyside joined ours for another Thanksgiving service at the Shadyside Presbyterian Church. After some in- subordination, which Admiral Tilley settled in short order, the humbler choris- ters proceeded with the orders of the day. A Christmas party was held on board, before going ashore. Christmas carols were sung with joyful promise of long leave, where friends and family would soon be seeing too much of us all. The year's work of the choral detail culminated in one more get-together with the Shadyside group. This was a joint c.oncert of great success, socially and musically. Incidentally our treasury is bulging and our hearts are light. PICTURES Our able young artists aboard have banded together in a working organiza- tion deftly guided by Captain Williams. Taking advantage of eagerness for action, the Dramatic Club, the E.A.A., and the Guild have ordered and received imaginative and beautiful posters for all occasions. In the competitive field certain Work done aboard ship Was placed on exhibition in the Port of Pittsburgh. Great was the celebration on board when . -PENN ORE LEA Seamen Burns, Burnett and Reed were decorated and duly congratulated. At the Ellis Fair Art clubbers were invaluable for their advice and ready co-operation. Throughout the voyage our main cabin has been made lovely with travel posters, furniture and costume designs, stained glass artistry, and charming prints. DRAMA Before Christmas the Senior class called for expert help in the production of J. M. Barrie's "Mary Rose." Immediately the Dramatic Club volunteered and gave its professional QU assistance. Later in the voyage the officers, Nancy Schuchman, president, Joan Reed, secretary, and Anne Eisaman, treasurer, scoured the shelves of the ship's library for plays worthy of the club's own outstanding talent. After sleepless nights over lines not learned, sharp battles for a corner on deck for rehearsals, and various sorts of absen- teeism, at last three one-act plays were given in separate as- sembly periods: "The Trysting Place," by Booth Tarkington: "Riders to the Sea," by Synge: and "Two Crooks and a Lady," by Eugene Pillot. At the helm were Commanders Currier, Hutchinson, Pickard and Williams. SPORTS Excess energy aboard ship is always an obstacle to be leaped over With no little agility. Captain Lecollier took over for the early weeks, swinging into action the hardy crewmen who just "must have something to do." That something was hockey between Green and White teams. Players and fans were enthusiastic and fairly skillful. Basketball was coached later by Commander Dickey. The good old baseball came out in the spring, and some of our more elated souls took to aesthetic dancing. Honorable ofhcers in charge were Charlotte McNulty and Barbara Cruciger. They slipped in a skating party for the Red Cross While we were roaming the Arstic Seas. All welfare matters of the ship were in the hands of the Ellis Guild, its members elected from the various classes. Leaders were chosen by the entire crew. Chiefs Wilson, Betty Reed, and Walker have been advised, and wisely by Chief Stevenson. The Junior and Senior Red Cross, The Seeing Eye, The Save-a-Child fund, Frontier Nursing and The Grenfell Mis- sion have all received generous contributions from our ship. These charities were financed by the Guild Fair held ashore on a long Week-end in May. Families and friends of the crew kept all sideshows busy, the grab bag empty, and food counters swept clean. was R W g - bf X C W , S2 , ' -f s 3 2 Q, aw wwf? 3 5.035 ,ALM N. sf 1 , . ., i r 5 E 9 I I ! i E i 2 2 Q Z nw :"1www1wfw'f 1, wg ,,.-QwamwS8!3EN32 51WYw6 THE CLASS SUNG PINLANDIA With thankful hearts we praise thee, Alma Mater: We raise our Voices now in grateful song.

As they filed solemnly into the inner sanctum, they saw her quietly slipping a great, voluminous, black gown over her powder blue toga, fthat's a cloak, son!D. She whirled about and stared at their dumbfounded faces for several moments before she spoke. Her words seemed to come from some distant place, as though she had left it behind the curtain. "Pray be seated while I embark upon my flight to the Never-Never Land." They squatted on the hooked rugs scattered over the rough-hewn floor, while their new friend closed her eyes, twirled in the air and mumbled a line or two from Conchita Banana. As silence enveloped the room, her eyes opened and she seemed entirely changed. She had the ap- pearance of one who has just had a dip in the Arctic Ocean, clad in a dotted swiss sun suit. Her dark eyes flashed as the little figure near the brass foot-warmer shivered and edged closer. "Young lady, your future will be very different from that which you have planned." Barbara Cruciger cleared her throat and quietly rasped, "You mean I shall never con- coct the Elixir of Life" She half shut her eyes and wrinkled her chin prettily. This confused the oracle and she hurried to amend the prediction. "Well, now, not exactly. You will receive ample assistance from one who is near to you. In fact, she is sitting behind you, with her hair twined around her nose. How very odd!" We all turned to see Charlottee who loosened her hair and nervously rubbed at her newly acquired sunburn. "I see an artists's life, consisting of hunger, privation and grueling work for you." Anne Eisaman left her Krunchy Karamel Kovered Pop Corn Ball fall into her lap, as she realized that the seeress was addressing her. Her thoughts skipped over the diet of thin tea and Zwiebach as the words, "grueling work," imprinted themselves on her brain. Then. shrugging her shoulders with resignation, she downed another popcorn ball. At that moment Divvens looked perturbed. "Are any of us going to marry?" "The total will not be high for the class, but YOU can rest assured, provided you can steer clear of hockey pucks and other flying missiles." Divvie blushed and Kitty replaced her ice pack. A small boy dressed in a goatskin tunic of a shepherd, stole into the chamber behind the oracle. He carried a tray of entrails which he placed on a small table at the oracle's feet. Taken back slightly, she turned to thank the child. Seeing this opportunity, Ellen Gutsche rose from her position and began to examine the con- tents of the tray. "Sure enough, it is the alimentary canal of an ovis muttonus, quite well organized and still pretty fresh . . . " At that moment, the priestess turned and glowered at Ellen. Ellen beat a hasty retreat as the oracle looked closely at the entrails, winced slightly, and choked. "You are going to tamper with nature once too often, O Curious One, and your me- thod of controlling genes in reproduction will bring a race of giants destined to destroy your very civilization." Ellen's chum, Peggy Stewart, edged quietly away from her side. This movement brought her to the attention of the wily prophetess who thereupon chanted in her usual dreary monotone, "The atmosphere will be your career." c "Oh grand! That means that I will be an airlines hostess after all!" "Not quite: you are destined to become the predictor in charge of balloons at the weather bureau." A tear ran its quiet course down Peggy's disappointed face, as she tightened her teeth braces and smiled her brave little smile. Ruby, who had up to this time been putting her bangs up in curl papers, rose and caught the oracle's eye. "Designers of the capitols of the world will clamor to have you model their creations." "Isn't that wonderful, girls? Can't you see me now, modeling plastic bathing suits fitted with jet engines?" The seeress continued coldly, "You will demonstrate farm implements at state fairs throughout the country, and your greatest triumph will come when you are chosen Miss Chill- ed Steel Plow of the Wheat and Potato Belt," Calling a halt to proceedings, the oracle bent down and shoveled some coal into the sacred fire, just as Nancy Schuchman snapped her camera. A bit startled by the occurrence, the prophetess stiffened and looked icily at her as she spoke. "Someday in trying to take a picture using twenty ultra-violet Hash bulbs, you will be consumed by the glare and never seen again." Beads of honest perspiration poured off Nancy's forehead as she sheepishly deposited the used bulb into a nearby incense pot. At this point, the little boy entered to announce the arrival of a person named Croesus, who sought a Hve-dollar prediction on one of his wars. The priestess prepared to leave. Kitty ran along beside her, tugging at her robes until, in desperation, the seeress consulted the spirits in charge of Burns. You will join the Elves', C1nomes', Leprochons' and Little Mens' Chowder and March- ing Society after West Point closes down. There you will stay as Chowder Committee Chair- man for life." Following these words, a great gong was sounded and the little boy passed among them with a size seven and one-eighth derby. The girls threw in their car checks, Willkie but- tons and World's Fair souvenirs and made for the door. On the remainder of the vovage, many a night was spent discussing the authenticity of the odd predictions and many a fingernail was lost in worry over them. For the outcome of it all, we must wait, but no one can stop our guessing.

IN LIFE'S GARDEN Count your garden by the flowers Never by the leaves that fall- Count your days by golden hours, Don't remember clouds at all- Count your nights by stars--not shadows. Count your life with smiles, not tears. And with joy through all your lifetime, Count your age by friends, not years! SARAH FRAZER ELLIS WHAT'S IN A NAME Thirty years ago, Miss Sarah E. Ellis opened The Ellis School on Ellsworth Avenue, and since she retired, a few years ago, The Ellis School has continued not only to bear Miss Ellis' name, but to realize and deserve the high reputation Miss Ellis made for it. Its name has come to stand for the intelligence, dignity and gentility inherent in the character of its founder. It has given me special pleasure to make the photographs of the Senior Class, the Eaculty, and other school pictures, which over a period of many years have appeared in this school annual.

IT gives her an independent income, and a principal sum which she can someday bequeath in her will as she sees lit. Meanwhile it protects her heritage from loss through misinvestment on the one hand, or emotional spending on the other. All through her life, whenever she is puz- zled by Hgures, accounts, and finance, she will have a Hnancial adviser to turn to for experienced and kindly counsel. So Trust Protection watches over a daughter whose father is thoughtful enough to appoint this permanent Institution as Trustee. FIDELITYT RUST COMPANY 341-343 FOURTH Ava.
