Yet one of those very traditions is to publish yearly a yearbook of our college annals. College means something different to each one of us. But the program is so varied, that each girl, no matter what her tastes, upon coming here, soon finds herself Htting into the scheme of things, thus maturing her own personality through the four years as well as adding something to the leadership of the college. Nevertheless, it is not to be supposed that social activities monopolize the stage entirely, for from all sides come reports that alumnae are justifying their positions of leadership by the fund of well-founded academic knowledge derived from these halls of learning. It is a well known fact that the standards of scholarship at Elmira are substantially higher than those of the majority of universities and colleges. The doctrine that education should be made interesting is fulfilled by the well-rounded group of allied activities found here. Departmental clubs add enjoyment to knowledge. Thespis affords an opportunity to put into practice the latent talents of students of speech and dramatics. Not among the least of the activities which sustain the interest of a great portion of the student body is the Glee Club, whose membership has reached the limited one hundred. A student government which really functions efficiently adds an element which makes the students feel that they are justly ruled. Through Y. VV. C. A. and E. C. S. A. opportunities for social service are furnished. Those literary bent meet a chance of fulfilling their talent through the many positions open to them on Octagon, the bi-monthly school newspaper, Sibyl, the tri-annual literary magazine, and Ixus. More intangible and yet as fundamental are the traditions which are the background of our college culture. VVe feel that newer colleges do not have these delightful customs and proven conventions which are the very essence of tradition. From the charming May Day of old, which centered about the lake, May Day has spread to its present grandeurg but the lovely custom and method' of choosing the May Queen each year is still a link with the past. Cap and Gown Day is another honored custom which is well-grounded in the past. Class banquets are newer in our annals, but they, too, will become traditions in the years to come. VVe are proud of our college and we are conhdent that such knowledge of it which finds its way into the consciousness of the nation is honorable and worthwhile.

THOMPSON Elmira Executive Committee CHARLES M. THOMS Rochester, New York IU I +33 dl-ll lf- ol X ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION The ideal of the Elmira College Alumnae is that one's allegiance to her col- lege does not end on the day of her graduation. For eighty-two years Elmira grad- uates have carried their ideal of education for service into their post graduation days as teachers, scientists, social workers, missionaries, lawyers, newspaper women, and artists, and specialists in many other capacities. They are the women who have made Elmira known, who have gained for Elmira a fine reputation for leadership and service. Elmira has the distinction of being the Alma Mater of women who have been pioneers in many fields of service. Many of the barriers these women had to overcome no longer exist, but modern society, too, presents its problems. It is our obligation to be as high a credit to our Alma Mater as they were. We are proud of our kinship with this distinguished group of daughters, and we, too, want to be just as truly representative of the spirit and ideals of Elmira. There are at present twenty-nine college clubs from Boston to California which by their financial assistance and encouragement have provided the means for strengthening the physical and scholastic structure of our college. Alumnae are the most vital part of a college. Many of us first heard of Elmira through an alumna. The fact that over fifty percent of this year's freshmen reported alumnae influence in their choice of a college is indicative of the influence of alumnae on prospective students. In a message from Dr. Anna Spiesman Starr, Alumnae President, speaking of alumnae contributions to the college she said: "Whatever we do, let us do it happily, con- fident of our purpose and of ourselves." And it is through their conception of a high purpose that they, who have "traveled before us on the road,'7 have made our way less difficult.

But such we were back in 1933. Heterogeneous- until Joss became our first President and we chose Dr. Harris, that incomparable giver of picnics and teas and breakfasts, as our patron saint. Under such adroit leadership, we were able to distinguish our first year at college by giving that amusing Tarkington play Station YYYY, by presenting the exquisite Old English May Day, and by dipping quite successfully into athletics. Sophomore year further helped shape us into the group we have now become. We originated the football tradition for Sophomore Hops. We took time out from heckling the tenderfoot class to smoke the pipe of peace at the grand Indian Pow-Wow which was our Buddy Party. Upon two different occasions, as is usual before the end of first semester, we kept the psychology office open until six o'clock for the last indexed and illustrated notebook. Spring semester was a dramatic season for us: Speech Plays- The Minuet, Riders to the Sea, and Gilt-Edged were all rated excellent performances by our public. A banquet in May marked the half-way line for the class of thirty-seven. After the vacation months, as Juniors we returned with ideas and enthusiasm ready to publish IRIS, inspire Little Sisters, and take a prominent part in that outstanding Inauguration weekend with the play Milestones. A flowery prom and a successful dinner dance further engaged our responsibilities. After an exciting event furnished through the ofhces of that solicitous Junior, the Fire-Chief, we settled down to a routine which was again enlivened after January by the native charm which our newest comer, Lucette, lent to the French Play. When that last summer was over, came the first of a quick succession of last times. Last Cap and Gown Day-marching as Seniors into chapel, holding purple chrysanthe- mums with calm, experienced fingers. Last Mountain Day-long heralded and well- spent. Then, with best efforts combined, we planned a highly successful Senior W7eek- End-Senior breakfast, in luxurious blazers swinging along to the spirit of the new, gay Marching Song-Banner Raising and the untractable black sheep-Never seen him act this way?"-More songs-and tears from Birch and Coop. The end of a full weekend came with the presentation of The Admirable Crichton.. .Over us all hung that ephemeral feeling. As if exams and practice teaching weren't enough to worry about, there set in a series of calls by "Agency" representatives to heckle us. Goldie had her own individual worries, too. Childish ones, perhaps. Then came that last Easter Vacation and that last Spring Formal. We, the class of thirtysseven, leave you for a brand new experience, asking your wishes for our good luck and happy sailing. Y 1 g 4 'if LM!

But certain things we7ll never forget. The night of Sophomore Pop Calls when we plied the intruders with food and played snap-the-whip up and down the corridors. The marshmallow roast in Louise Harderis room. The thrill of going to the President's Reception with our Big Sis- ters. The constant rippling rhythm in the lounge. The fascinating horror of pop quizzes, the dread certainty of announced ones. The propitious appearance of the lighthouse at Bud- dy Party, after a stormy session of Sophomoric persecution. The corporate feeling on Cap and Gown Day when we made Dottie Graeves our president, the added feeling of solidarity on Class Day in owning a patron saint, our beloved Miss Pinter. After Christmas vacation, the wanton squandering of chapel cuts. The delight at Phyllis Barber's, "Do it againI,' in our initial Thespian presentation, The Sleeping Beauty. The welcome arrival of Spring bringing the delightful picnic given us by Miss Pinter in Watkins Glen before May Day, and May Day itself, with a hopping, frislcy bunny. And most especially the importance of witnessing innovations-for our Freshman year brought twelve oacloclcs and the organizing of Glee Club on bigger and better lines. Now Sophomores are only Freshmen 0r1Ce removed, but we liked to forget that as we returned the next autumn to take possession of Cowles. We vainly visited the Junior-Fresh man picnic. We lustily shouted the wrong name for Freshman president. But we went blithely on our way, distinguishing ourselves by an unusual Hop where very realistic pen- guins perched on massed icebergs. After many hysterical rehearsals we presented the Prince and the Pauper. After we had conducted an amateur hour for the amusement of our newly designated buddies, we gilded the lily by giving even another party for the Freshmen, hoping to foster further friendly relations. Of course, we did not neglect our text boolcs, for had we not long ago learned how to underline properly with a six-inch ruler? We pro- duced our best Gestaltg we traced shalcy stars for Dr. Scheclc, and in doing so, could not but remember forget-me-nots. On May Day morning we greeted our Big Sisters with an outdoor breakfast, catching 'LMIRA coutotf P age 75 C L A O P l fTHE193Q mis f 59,0 9 , the spirit of the season in the modernistic corsages of iris and daffodils. We debonairly Nvound up the year with a dainty luncheon, highly amused by the mistake which gave into our hands the corsages which the Freshmen intended for the Junior Banquet. When we journeyed home for the summer, it was in happy contemplation of Little Sisters in Sep- tember. ' Our little' sisters were all we anticipated, we decided, as we started our Junior year buoyed up by more delightful first experiences. There was President's Reception, with the nervous- ness of standing in the waiting line-the fun of introducing and meeting others' Little Sisters -the chuckles occasioned by the quick pick-up on prizes offered by President Pott for puns. There was Cap and Gown Day-starched white collars and the fumbling over long-stemmed yellow chrysanthemums. Junior Thespis brought The Swan-hussars and lackeys in tight breeches-royal evening clothes-the tutor-Sympharosa-Cxsar-a cough that rose in a delicate crescendo. We were charmingly feted at dinner by our patron saint, and then Junior Weekend was upon us-corridors lined with sheets of black-painted musical notes-the octagon Hlled with piles of cardboard cartons soon to be magically transformed into metropolitan sky- scrapers-Hoating balloons--the problem of men-glamorous new formals-corsages. Before the last souvenir balloon had shrunken to a withered sack, we made the space between Thanksgiving and Christmas memorable by a sprightly holiday dance, where the trees dripped tinsel under blue lights and the Santa Claus wore silver boots. Past-Christmas reunion witnessed an epidemic of new radios, and a deep interest in aerials and that mysterious source of static in Tompkins. Soon our attention became fixed upon Petitions-for-Changes-in-Schedule and trying to find out when our exams came without looking them up on the bulletin board. Midyear recess brought Pat's and Midge's relaxing Valentine Tea, for which they reconnoitered systematically weeks ahead of time seeking cups and saucers of symmetrical blend. Second semester settled down upon us. A last breathless rush to get TRIS to press. The Country Fair-fortune telling-the Cabbage Patch-punch and cookies-the Chinese Laun- dry. A Big-Sisterly interest in May Day. And now, as summer approaches and only one more year to go-our heart strings tighten. 77 faoarioi sy.. ol itll SEQ PF 1938 Class Song Our loyalty and devotion we bring as offerings.

We were all po- tentially superstitious anyway, so we fell vigorously to discovering new phenomena about our- selves. Fate seemed to have taken a hand and marked us for the unusual-was not nineteen thirty-nine a multiple of thirteen? We watched for further signs, meanwhile setting about to adjust ourselves to this college situation. Pending the first gym classes, we acquired our ex- ercise by sliding downstairs on pillows. Properly adaptive, we entered with delight into the spirit of vesper services on West Hill with our Big Sisters. And we looked with suspicion on our enemy class in typical Freshman fashion. Whilst we were furnishing the rest of the college with material for amusement and curios- ity, we were concerned with matters of more importance-such as, how many pages made the best quota for History fall Dr. Gilbert's statements asidej and how to announce our patron saint fwe had already realized the Pott-entialities of the situationj . This problem we solved with resourcefulness, we thought, as shrewd as our choice of the individual when we introduced Dr. Port with triumphant song. Lady Luck was again with us, but we had to give some credit to-er-intelligent selection. New things kept presenting themselves for our attention until Thanksgiving and Dr. Pott's gentle, yet htm, setting aside of precedent in prolonging the holiday recess. Wild was our joy at this opportunity to be so long at home, yet great was the satisfaction at returning and feel- ing for the hrst time really a part of the college. We wondered how we could have thought ourselves really acquainted that first week. Now that Thanksgiving and then Christmas were over, it was conceivable that any Freshman should worry about the brevity of reading days and the potential severity of exams. But not we. Worry? Freshmen had fainted before and lived. . It was a feeling of relief to start the new semester with a clean slate-and a new allotment of Cuts. Scholastically the semester felt no different from the first, although it did become a frequent source of anxiety to devise new color combinations for History maps. Studies became altogether irksome anyway with Spring in the air and May Day. Since Spring was in the air, it was no wonder that Freshman Banquet revealed the fact that we, as a class, had poetry in our souls. We returned after summer vacation with a light in our eyes and a Mission in our minds. We tried to make history by that memorable chapel which announced our intention of raising Elmira to that level of consciousness in the great outside world which the Reformatory now possesses. Followed there an interval highlighted by royal entertainment at the country club as the guests of our munificent patron saint. Then we seized upon the opportunity the Buddy Party presented to have a sensational superstition party on Friday, the thirteenth. After that, making four hundred college banners took all our time until Sophomore Hop, that memorable occa- sion upon which Dr. Pott walked triumphantly away with a goal post. Psychology notebooks loomed large, blotting out all else just before Christmas vacation, until there was a thirteenth of one month, at least, when we all wished ourselves into the mid- dle of next week. After vacation a jumble of original tap dances and exam schedules merged into mid-semester plans. All at once there was a new semester and a breathing space again- a chance to plan for that spring socializing, our St. Patrick's dance given of course on the thirteenth of March. Certainly without this dance we would not be sufiiciently matured to wear the prestige which will be ours next year when we become juniors. If you can believe in signs we have started out well!

WILSON MARIJANE WOODBURY YLIE 4 Iii i8Q5Qo X FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY c'We are the class of forty-itesv-and this distinction of starting a new decade is going to call for a lot of originality. But for the moment we, too, Nteaedv and sported purple beribboned name cards in traditional freshman fashion and turned temporary interior decorators and kept our oranges and reds discreetly at a distance. But Freshman Week, its campus tours and hard chapel seats, was soon over. Trips to Rossi's and Tompkins fthat room under the archj became a round of college life. With the return of the upper classman we had our first opportunity for originality. We shared our Big Sisters in a 2 : l ratio. Despite disheartening warnings we imme- diately 'qtookv to the Sophomores. Proof-their hearty welcome to the Junior-Freshman picnic. Royal treatment at a Senior tea proved we were right in considering the Seniors a happy complement to the Class of Thirty-nine. Believe it or not, Mountain Day did actually arrive. We, the poor class of forty, who could not know from experience that this event would really materialize, had almost concluded that it was a myth after all, until the obliging Sophomores took it upon them- selves to uphold the tradition in our eyes and awakened Dr. Pott in time to announce it before breakfast. Not merely picnics for us-bicycling, sliding down hay mows, inves- tigating the interior of the Dixie Barbecue were all in order for the clay. Senior step sing, candle-light, outings with Big Sisters all followed in quick succes- sion, but we were merely working up to the climax-Cap and Gown day. Freshman Chairman announced Freshman President. But the chairman was the president! The astounded silence of the Sophomores was all we needed to complete our happiness on "our day of daysf, Come Senior weekend we showed ourselves both credible and cleanly by taking the lake skimming tradition seriously. Later with greetings, our own class song, banner raising, and best of all our Patron Saint, Senior weekend for us became complete. Whence did the autumn vanish so quickly? Winter arrived. Then Thanksgiving recess, after which we were guests at tea of the gracious President and his wife. And will we ever forget French Christmas party with angels floating hither and yon, and shepherds draped in their Big Sisters' couch covers? What did it matter whether shepherds wore green plaid or hand blocked Indian print? The gay night before Christmas vacation-toasted cheese sandwiches, hair-drying at two A.M., the radio piping away a little wearily, yet courageously trying to keep up with us. Our phenomenal turnout for Choral-singing in the early morning-packing-hours like years-then taxis and noon trains. Somewhat subdued we returned to the prospect of Investigatives, trailing clouds of Wf7o's Wfvos, encyclopedias, and card catalogues. After serious conclave wih the Dean, all sheet music disappeared from the piano-and all was quiet. Noise, notices, and nights out had worked their havoc. Anyway, life became a grim, stark reality. Could we project ourselves back into those watersheds? Had we lost our ability to cram? Surprisingly we have recovered from our attack of serious thinking and are pondering how to use this new semester to best advantage. We've heard rumors of a dance and a new and different May Day. Three years lie ahead. We have only begun. But can you doubt our ability to deal with any and all demands made upon our originality? J tftmiwicotttotf Pg M fTHE193STRlS if 5 l f HELEN JOSLIN Prefidenl STUDENT GOVERNMENT An organization honored and esteemed by all. Ten students elected from the three upper classes make up Senate, that impressive group of lawmakers who gather behind closed doors every Tuesday night to render decisions regarding cases of student miscon- duct, to discuss schemes for the advancement of students, and to encourage informal judgment on important projects. We are likewise proud of our House of Representa- tives, presided over by the Vice-president of Student Government and consisting of the dormitory presidents who weekly to-il over the sign out books and decipher our hieroglyphics as to when and where we went. In the hands of Student Government lies the control of Student Chapel-doors closed-freedom from the faculty and the formality of planned Chapel programs. Here the carefully made decisions are read and good-naturedly ac- cepted. Amendments to the constitution of Student Government are discussed and every student has the opportunity of voicing her own opinion. This year we amended our Constitution by a modification in the regulations governing elections. This amend- ment was the answer to a deep felt need for change on the part of students. To us, every amendment represents a forward step in our Student Government annals. Thus, we daily strive to keep abreast of the times, so that our government may be as just and adequate as possible. +'fl9Tl'iQ3 .L'sQ?'2ljJSU5FlATE -X J ,Xgjj JI f'fFI1JyCl-IER, JOSLIN, VUKLLIAMS, P ES 1: S TE GRAEVES, MACNAM1'xRA, MANNING BRU N fr cw 3 ' . sc O' Cv al -3' Lx 5' BQ Q7 ,as br? 5.-L? fl' 1 C' ' .hc IM' 1' X? f x if ,jf A if 6 . 4 TJ Ji my J' .

A National honorary fraternity for social science majors where meet idealism and realism, sympathetic toler- ance, and critical evaluation. The goal-a freedom that is not license. And this with- out all the fanfare that seeks only for the glorihcation of its members, the parading of their honors and achievements, the awe are the chosen fewv attitude. On the campus at Elmira College, Pi Gamma Mu stands for the recognition of potential leadership among students trained in the scientific approach and understanding of social problems. Periodic discussion meetings give opportunity for an exchange of ideas among students, faculty members, and local alumnae members of the Elmira Chapter, and encourages the more intensive pursuit of these interests. Information sheets of each stuclent,s interests and capabilities are kept at the ofiice of the National Executive Secretary and each is ex- pected to render to the Society such assistance as she finds time and opportunity to give. The Society's magazine, Social Science, keeps the student in touch with the activities of the society and gives to them many articles of wide social interest. Begun in 1924 at Southwestern College, Winheld, Kansas, through the efforts of Leroy Allen, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and a few promising students, Pi Gamma Mu now has one hundred and forty-three chapters. Each year these chapters are attempting to send out from our colleges and universities young men and women imbued with social idealism, trained in scientinc thought, and encouraged to help others to be scientific in their think- ing on social problems.

Hard work- maybe, but it,s worth it according to its one hundred members. Need we ask why? The Binghamton concert marked the beginning of the most eventful season of its three-year existence-December 13th-a special train chartered for the occasion-a full house. December 14th followed with our Elmira concert in conjunction with the symphony orchestra. Did we 'say something about a full house-this time we had standing room only . . . The success of the concerts-couldn't you tell by the actions of certain faculty members? Building up to a climax, our New York concert marked the suspension of two days of school, a special train to New York, rooms at the Waldorf, our broadcast over the NBC network, our special dinner at Radio City. But best of all the concert in the Starlight Room with the Union College Glee Club. Remember "Parsifal" . . . Was there ever a piece of music comparable to "Glorious Forevern? . . .

I fffhlter ls Said and Done!! It's over-but not forgotten. The long, arduous days of pictures, write-ups, campaigns-and the Iris Country Fair have joined the realm of has-beens. The worry, the mistakes, the last minute rush, the thrill of watching a mere scrap of an idea burst into being are now but memories in the sport of uputting out the yearbook." Since our principal intent was to paint our campus as we really find it, we have not permitted any theme, other than the cuts of sports which we associate with our patron saint, to dominate. In form of presentation we have not varied far from the usual, but we have instituted a few changes and introduced some new features which we feel merit a place in our book of college life. We are greatly indebted to Mr. W. A. Daniels of the Ben- son Printing Company for his guidance and generous assistance in formulating plans for our book. Likewise, we extend our appreciation to Mr. C. Jay Smith of Jahn and Ollier Engraving Company for his aid in crystallizing our hazy ideas for the snapshot page. Also we are exceedingly grateful to Mr. Fred Loomis, our photographer, for his wholehearted cooperation and counsel in making the pictures just what we wished. We hope that our book may in every way be worthy of the trust bestowed upon us by the Junior class, and that our delight and enjoyment in preparing our IRIS will be reflected in your approval of this 1938 edition. The Trustees whose names appear on page 19 send greetings to Elmira College,s daughters everywhere. An educational institution is the lengthened shadow of its alumnae. Without their feelings of loyalty and their active cooperation and support it cannot very well exist. During the depression, colleges and universities every- where have suffered from loss of enrollment. Last year, in the case of Elmira College, the trend was reversed. This year with an enrollment of 352, there is a 4.2 per cent increase over last year. But we still need more students of the proper kind, students who are qualified in every way for entrance to Elmira. There has been no relaxation of standards and there will be no compromise in quality. To every alumna who reads this page, the Trustees urge that you help during the coming year- I. By telling your acquaintances of the good points of the College. 2. By finding good students in your community, telling them about Elmira College, and writing the Registrar or the President giving their names and addresses. 3. By writing the President, for the benefit of the Administration of the College and the Trustees, any- thing you lcnow that will help make the College better. We thanlg you for your past cooperation.
