THE ELLIS SCHOOL
ELLIS SCHOOL SONG
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 fight 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 cheer,
But there's nothing e'er can shake us
From our pledge of loyalty
And the battles will but take us
Through the joys of victory.
Far beyond the dear, old school days,
Looking back on mem'ries dear,
They,ll be more than golden rule days,
Seen thru reason's vision clear,
As we fight in life's great battles,
Striving ever for the right, i
Then we'll praise our Alma lllater,
And her colors green and white.

the Seniors of 19118, cledivutc this yearbook
Graduation day has come, and it is as if we were standing on a bridge
between two worlds. Ahead lies the future with paths leading to destina-
tions yet unknown. Our ambitions and hopes lead us on, bright dreams
of becoming musicians, painters, architects, or scientists.
Up to now we have been intent only upon our little school world,
where we have scurried busily hither and thither, bent on various activities
and pursuits. Although we are ready now to discard our green uniforms
and go forward, it is impossible not to carry some of our past with us.
These things we shall remember: the beautiful new buildings, the spacious
grounds, the stimulating contact with the teachers, Miss Til1ey's under-
standing guidance which has been felt in all our lives, the friendships we
have made, the group activities in which we have engaged, the various
sports accompanied by wild shrieks of laughter and excitement, and Glee
Club which has given us something beyond mere academic learning.
Even though each one follows a different path, we shall not forget
these memories and friendships for they have become an integral part of us.

In welcoming you to our commencement exercises today, we do so with profound
realization that ours, indeed, is a most unusual class, although there were a few
people who had doubts as to whether we could ever ,manage to graduate. When Miss
Pierson viewed us coming into her classroom as freshmen-we were so green that
we thought Social Studies was just the art of making friends. Miss Tilley was the
new Headmistress at Ellis that year, and was the only one that had much confidence
in us, she refused to shake her head the way tl1e rest of the world did. "No," she
said, "this crowd will improve. They'll have to!', And we did. That year we
seemed to be supplied with nothing but questions: "Why can't we go in the front
door F" "Why don't we get invited to the Junior Prom?" "Why does our lunch room
have to be proctored ?" "Why do we take mythology? "Why don't we have a
representative on the Student Council?" It's a wonder that there was any school
left after our freshman year. We rubbed incense over Mademoiselle Mier's floors,
sneaked up to the rodeos at lunch time, and practically killed everyone on the
The next year as sophomores, we lost a few of our members, but gained two
new ones. We were privileged to make biology one of our subjects that yearg but
between the dissecting of frogs and the hilarious trips to the Museum, we're afraid
Miss Hutchinson thought us quite an ordeal. Two of our classmates were chosen
to represent us in Student Council, and we were finally allowed to eat lunch with-
out a proctor. There was no sense in letting a teacher get involved in one of our
fights. This was the first year we were allowed to attend the Junior Prom, and
we really made a night of it! In February, one of our members was chosen to be
initiated into the E.A.A. In May we prepared for the annual Spring Fair, where our
class held an auction. We made quite a profit by being able to auction off cigar-
ettes, nylons, and butter for four and five dollars, This was the year in which we
had to perform many sisterly duties for the seniors. On Class Day we served lunch
to the whole upper school. A few survived! The next morning we got to school about
six o'clock, loaded with flowers, in order to make the traditional arches for the
seniors. We were right proud of ourselves as we held them for the graduating class
to walk beneath, and later as we marched up to present them with our farewell gifts.
Our Junior year began with a luncheon for the new girls at the Athletic Club.
Many new teachers greeted us on the first day of school but it didn't take them long
to learn our names. This was a busy year for us, as we had to plan for the Junior
Prom and work for the Guild. In November two more of our members were hon-
ored by being initiated into the E.A.A., and for two weeks they appeared with black
stockings and straggly pigtails. After Thanksgiving we awaited with anticipation
our Christmas Vacation with all the wonderful parties, including the Ellis Tea
Dance. On our return we settled down to study for the dreaded mid-year exams!
After these trials, there was a free day for all the good students who had earned
enough merits-the Junior Class attended school as usual! March found us scurry-
ing about like mad in preparation for our Junior Prom. It turned out to be 'a great
success and everyone had a marvelous time. Then, right before Spring Vacation, we
had our annual joint concert with the Shady Side and Ellis Glee Clubs. After vaca-
tion we heard the wonderful news that first, the school was going to have a maga-
zine, and second, that Miss Cook was going to take twenty girls from the Glee Club
to sing with some other schools in Connecticut. The school .magazine board was
picked and four members of our class were selected, including the editor. Four girls
in our class were also chosen to go to Connecticut. When they returned, they were
full of exciting news about it.
Our Senior year started most auspiciously with a picnic and swimming party
two days before school opened. When classes began this year, we were not sorry,
because we were in a new school! We were most impressed by the mahogany
woodwork and crystal chandeliers, and thought ourselves extremely lucky to be
the first class to graduate from it. As Seniors, we were given new privileges,
some of which we lost before Christmas! We alone were permitted to use the
front door, study in the library, use the front stairs and have uuniformless Fri-
days." We were given a large room of our own on the ground floor. Here, we
ate our lunches, lounged around, played the victrola and had all our special meet-
ings. By the first of November, all the yearbook pictures had been taken, and soon
after there was a chorus of shrieks from the library, where the girls clustered around
their Senior pictures which had just arrived. Our class changed the style of the
school rings this year, and we think they are most attractive. As usual, the Seniors
and the Glee Club took charge of the Thanksgiving Assembly. Early in December,
our "bunny suits" and green and white stocking caps for gym arrived. It was hilar-
ious to watch everyone running about looking like little "Harveys." On December
7, Ellis had its big "Open House." The whole school looked marvelous that Sun-
day with its oriental rugs and beautiful flowers in every room. The Juniors and
Seniors were posted about the building to act as guides, and each Senior was pre-
sented with a gardenia by the trustees. Then came Christmas Vacation, more ap-
preciated this year than everl Everyone piled as much fun as she could into two and
one-half weeks, and by January 5, everyone again returned to the old regime, per-
haps a little dazed from the holiday season. The frantic studying and last minute
cramming began for mid-years! The thought of them added ten years to each
Senior's life but we managed to live through them. Early in February, we made
plans for the Senior play and practiced for the concert with Shady Side. In March,
we were honored at the "Junior Prom" where we all had a wonderful time. Spring
brought for us, a much needed vacation of ten days, College Board Examinations,
and an epidemic of Hay Fever. We were in a tizzy getting ready for the Connecti-
cut Trip and decorating for the Fair. At last came the Final Exams, Prize Day-
and then, lo and behold,-Commencement.
So now you see why we, the class of '48 most earnestly hope you will enjoy our
exercises today knowing our past pleasures and accomplishments. As for our-
selves, we're afraid we will be able to enjoy the.m only through tears because now
that it is our turn to leave Ellis-we don't want to go.

Fifteen fruitful years have passed since that pride of Ellis, the Class of '48,
left her cloistered precincts to face "fortune's dizzy dance." Time has made but
a slight impression upon this group, their bonds of friendship are entwined forever
with the hallowed memory of the hallowed years passed together in the wild days of
One sunny morning in June, some of the aforementioned damsels left their
respective walks of life to take a peek into the "private lives" of their former class-
mates. In the course of their travels they unearthed some choice bits concerning
them, about which they had to confess a certain curiosity. The first stop they made
was in a lonely rural district of the Alps, where they came upon a brood of six child-
ren, romping in the yard of a rambling shack of forty rooms. Inquiry revealed this
to be the humble abode of the former Miss Anne Allen, wife of the brilliant archaeol-
ogist, Baron Von Cruncher. Amid the din of her various babbling offspring, they
discovered that the Baroness herself was a renowned archeologist. They found her
face streaked with dirt and her hair in wild disarray, and were unable to distract
her attention from the all engrossing work of digging. Finally, from the unintelli-
gible mumbling of her offspring, it was understood that she was excavating the bones
of her long lost lover, Roberto Bakero, from beneath the stones of the mountainside.
Upon arriving in Vienna two days later, they found that the famous 'cellist,
Madame Feodor Mikhailovitch Dostoievsky III, formerly Miss Joanne Fisher of
Pittsburgh, was making a tour through Austria, and was giving her first concert
there that night. When they finally saw her, she confessed that she was going to
play the difficult "Till Eulenspiegelu by Strauss, and would be the only performer
ever to play it as a 'cello solo, instead of the customary violin solo. Her husband,
Mikhailovitch, in the meantime, was back in Russia trying to write a sequel to
The Brothefs Karamazov just to please his darling Joanne.
Soon after that, they spent a week end with the Marquesa de la Suanque
O'Halligan-better known as Miss Caroline Browne, in her charming villa on the
Riviera. The Marquesa, who is now spending the winter with her fifth husband,
is starting work on her memoirs about the preceding four, which, from all accounts
should prove interesting. At the same time, she busies herself by dabbling a bit at
painting, and running a French Oldsmobile agency.
While on board a ship on their way back to America, they received the start-
ling news that the scientific girl with the bangs, Miss Joan Carson, has just out-
maneuvered Einstein. Upon arriving in Mt. Lebanon, she revealed to them in a
private interview how she had discovered that the "missing linkn doesnit equal X
at all, it equals Y. Which, if statistics don't lie, is going to shake the fundamentals
of algebra throughout the world! And poor Miss Soule, what will she do?
Their next stop was made at "Rolling Hills" in Lexington, Kentucky. On these
sunny acres they found Mrs. Casper Milquetoast purring sweet nothings in honeyed
tones into the ear of her favori-te thoroughbred. Mrs. Milquetoast is the former,
dashing, Miss Joanne Cherrington of Sewickley. She, her husband Casper, and
their two children, Pall and Mall, have the largest stables in the country, and are
the South's foremost authorities on horse breeding and tobacco raising.
Later, as they were having tea on the patio of a charming countryside inn, they
suddenly heard a whirring sound from above, and the next thing they knew, there
was a terrific crash in the middle of their table. As they looked, astounded, they
saw a weather-beaten gondola of a stratosphere balloon on the ground. The port-
hole slowly opened and out climbed the famous "Zoom Zoom," whom everybody prob-
ably remembers as Miss Tolli Reed. You see, she had broken into the headlines a
few years ago, by announcing her intention of making a non-stop flight around the
world. She took only a small black poodle with her, as a mascot, and became so en-
grossed in her flight that she had been going 'round and 'round ever since.
They next proceeded to the nation's capital, in order to visit the more illus-
trious daughters of Ellis. First in the House of Representatives, they heard a
spirited proposal for a "Suffrage for Dogs," eloquently presented by Miss Dorothy
Miller. "Dodie," as she was always called, is really Mrs. Collins Van Snort, of
the famous Washington Snorts. Though she professionally goes by her maiden
name, she has ten beautiful young Snorts, one for every year of her marriage,
since her graduation from Wheaton. She is known as a ''Congresswoman-at-large"
from the state of Indiana. She is one of the best spoken members of Congress and is
famous for her Latin ad-libbing, all of which she learned from her faithful prodder,
Then, Mrs. Lester de Pester, formerly Miss Molly Burgwin of Pittsburgh, the
first woman Speaker of the House, silenced Miss Miller on the issue! Mrs. de
Pester has worked steadily upward in the field of politics, and wields a great power
in the House of Representatives. After graduating from Radcliffe, she was known
to all of us, as the young social arbiter and leader of Washington society, but she
turned her back upon such trivial matters as those gala dinner parties for which
Washington is noted in order to champion the rights of the common people. At the
present time, she ardently desires to further the American female's learning, with
her newly launched campaign cry, "Let us have co-education at Yale !"
Next, they decided to take a run out to Oregon on the west coast, to see their
famous friend, Miss Margieann Bingler. Margieann has been much too busy the
last few years to bother her head about marriage, although she has had many op-
portunities. She's hit the headlines several times for she has become America's
biggest shipbuilder. Back in 1958, she ruthlessly put Henry J. Kaiser out of busi-
nessg now in 1963, she is building boats that are putting the old "Queen Elizabeth"
to shame! These ships can carry 5000 passengers around the world at once, and are
equipped with wings so they can take to the air in case of a bad storm. Of course,
every one of Miss Bingler's boats is run with a high-powered Ford motor. They al-
ways said back in '418 that there was a "Ford in her future."
The last stop of these curious damsels was the great metropolis of New York.
As they landed on Times Square in their new rocket ship, they headed straight for
Broadway! After walking for a few minutes they came upon the theater which dis-
played the name of a former classmate in glittering lights. This was Miss Nancy
Patton of Glenshaw, who was starring in the new Broadway hit, "The Importance
of Being Punctualf' After a stirring performance, she greeted the girls with open
arms and invited them to her apartment for cocktails. In private life she is Mrs.
Barrymore Von Virgil, one of New York's most fascinating young widows, and
known to everyone for her lavish entertaining. Besides this, she has been writing,
directing and acting in her own plays for several years-with none other than John
Dall as her co-star. From the garden of her twenty-fifth story penthouse, they
listened avidly to her tales of adventure in the big city. She told them how her
husband Barrymore, had worked for years to split an atom he had isolated. After
splitting it, he died of shock when he found that it was only a molecule.
And so, after this enlightening trip to many distant spots of the world, the
inquisitive damsels returned to their own "private lives," satisfied as to the fate,
happy and unhappy, of the members of the old Class of '4'8.

The Ellis Athletic- Association. better known as the l'l.A.A.. is an organization
to which every girl in the school from fourth grade through the twelfth belongs.
The l'I.A.A. board consists of the olfieers, and representatives chosen from each class.
This year's representatives are .lane Garrison. tenth grade: Ross Nlelslldowney.
ninthg Margot Copeland. eighthg Margot Bell, seventhg .ludy Murray. sixthg Louise
Bell, fifthg and Jean Davis, fourth. Throughout the year. each girl works for
points obtained by being on a Varsity. Green or Vllhite. or a class team. Points
are also given to score-keepers, time-keepers. and girls in charge of equipment.
At the end of the year the E.A.A. awards letters to the girls with the greatest num-
ber of points. The highest award is the E.A.A. bracelet which is given to the few
selected Seniors who have accumulated the most points throughout their years at
Ellis. The E.A.A. also awards a hockey, basketball, volleyball, and softball cup
to the best class team of the season. The dues of the club are one dollar, and they
are used to pay for the buses when the Varsity team visits another school. and
refreshments when the other schools visit us. They are also used to defray the
expenses of parties given by the E.A.A. This year we had a Halloween party for
the middle school, and an evening party for the upper school.

The Glee Club
Tolli Reed ........ fllrznager
The Ellis Glee Club this year is small in quantity but large in quality. Forty
girls, who are not professional but willing to exert effort, were chosen from the
upperlclasses. Under Miss Cook and Miss Fell, our leaders, we are taught the
fundamentals needed for successful group singing. All year we looked forward to
our second trip to Connecticut. Everyone kept her marks on an even keel in order
to go, for this was a most important event. In spite of all the excitement, we gave
our usual opening performance at Tllanksgiving. At Christmas we sang carols
and a few small groups sang diiferent numbers. Then, of eourse, we had our con-
cert with Shady Side. Throughout the year each sehool had bragged of his own
club and how much better his was than the other. Everyone being at his best that
night, it was hard to tell which was the better. All in all, this year meant hard
work, but it was full of fun and success.

The lfreneh Cluh is a new organization this year, hut under the guidance of
Mlle. Vnagnianx. it is already well established. VVe attend French lectures and
movies, and listen to French records in order to enlarge our vocabularies. Parties
are given several times a year, in the manner of those in France, with French food
and QJIHIUS. Our first attempt at a French party was a picnie held in Mellon Park.
liefreshinents consisted of cider and French pastry. It was a little disconcerting
when people on the street car turned and stared. hearing us chattering in French.
The rnost important thing we do is to send food and clothing to France. Packages
are sent every three months.
