COWLES Firsf Presidenf of Elmira College "Elmira's honored hisTory we sing in songs OT praise," and in so doing, Teel a liTTle selT- conscious. Perhaps we're TooTing our own horn. Though our own immediaTe hisTory is sTill in The making, we Teel ThaT The "honored hisTory" is also ours. The old. days belong To us, and we, To Them. To be sure, we do noT have among us a single dusT ruTTle, pornpadour, eighTeen-inch waisT, hair loraceleT, or Twelve-buTTon parTy shoe. We have noT masTered The arT OT peTiT-poinT or moTTo embroidery. We do noT marvel aT our daring To leave lighTs on aTTer Ten-ThirTy, enTerTain wiTh a midnighT "spread", or advenTure TarTher downTown Than The Triangle wiThouT chaperonage. Nor did They, who made ThaT "honored hisTory" Truclg, or shag, or swing. BUT They were alTernaTely baTTled and sTimulaTed by college work. They did have "bull" sessions, Though The name and The conversaTion were more poliTe. They had Their high hopes Tor The TuTure. They were young and impeTuous and, perhaps, a liTTle cocky. --And so are we. They were, as we are, Elmira College women, wiTh all The honors, ololigaTions, and good Tun which The name implies. So iT seems parTicularly TiTTing ThaT in This Iris, we should presenT her . . .as she came Then . .. as she comes now. DR. WILLIAM S. A.

T251 JENNIE AYRES LUNDY DR. ANNA SPIESMAN STARR 1859 President Alumnae Flirt Alumnae Preridenl ALUMNAE Elmira's active Alumnae . . . organized in clubs all the way from Massachusetts to California . . . stopping by the way for Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Wash- ington, D. C., and New Jersey . . . twenty-five clubs in all . . . busily engaged in giving Elmira a "build-up' '... each group with its own pet scheme for promoting interest in Elmira . . . inculcating those of the prep school age with the gloves of their future Alma Mater . . . all these schemes equally good and exceedingly novel . . . the individual groups united in the im- pressive Elmira College Alumnae Association . . . under the guid- ance of its capable oH:1cers . . . including its distinguished president, Dr. Anna Spiesman Starr, and its hardworking executive secre- tary, Miss French . .'. even the honorable secretary's irrepressible poodle becomes the epitome of deference-and silence-in his admiration for the Alumnae. E261 iijuf O32 Stand Coqeflzern The Alumnae do not leave us in doubt as to where we stand with them. They have given many evidences of their interest and affection. They provide endowments, loan funds, gifts, the ben- efits of which we enjoy. Invariably they are eager to meet, to entertain, and to help us. It seems high time that we, ualumnae- to-be," should show how proud we are of them. We wonder if they lcnow how much we lcnow about them. We can rattle off several individual histories. Charlotte Blake Brown, '66, distinguished surgeon and child specialist, establishing the first training school for nurses on the Pacific Coast. Another physician, Mary Niles, '75, was a medical missionary to China for forty years, and there established that country's first school for the blind. The second woman to be elected to the United States Congress was an Elmira alumna, Alice Robertson, '76. More recently Anna Spiesman Starr, '13, has .won unusual dis- tinction in the field of psychology, while Sylvia Chatfield Bates, ,05, has heard the pleasant ring of critical commendation for her novel, "The Long Way Home." Admittedly we are impressed by these individual accomplishments, but no more than by the attitude of all Elmira Alumnae. Career women and homemalcers alike, despite the crowding hours of their busy lives, find time to stand together in the preservation of old loyalties and in service to their College.

Q92 jbizze what She Joined Chen Thirty-seven years of efiicient and practical government among its students is a record of which Elmira College can be proudl Student Government will soon be eligible fif not alreadyj for an honorary place among our college traditions. Records provide the year 1901 as its cradle year with a certain Mary Lay as the first president. From the beginning Student "Gov" has prospered, gaining popularity as a fair "check" on students early in its life. Equally as praiseworthy, and with almost twice as many years to its credit, is RY. XV." First known as Young Ladies' Christian Association, it was formed in the year 1866. This early organization of Elmira College was forerunner of the Y. W. C. A. in the city of Elmira. In 1884, its name was changed to Young Women's Christian Associa- tion. The primary purpose of the original association does not diifer greatly from its present purpose. 1'The promotion of mutual cooperation in all suitable methods of doing good," was the original endeavor. In 1892 Elmira College organized its chapter of the College Settlement Association. We read that in the year 1896 the Association Ufurnished, with the help of the alumnae, a room for a resident worker at the Boston Settlement. At Christmas we sent a box of dainty gifts to Rivingston Street, and we are now making diminutive aprons for the children at the Summer House." In 1929, the name became Intercollegiate Community Service, then later the name we know today. The English Bard was our first guest on our chapel stage. The play was The Taming of tfve Shrew. The year was 1901. The occasion was the first play to be pre- sented by Thespis. Dean Harris was mainly instrumental in the organization of Thespis. Its first president was Florence Griifes, '02, who is now Mrs. James Aitken, of Ridge- wood, New Jersey. In '71 six scribbling seniors conceived the idea of a college magazine. Though the senior class sponsored the publication, its profits were divided between two literary socie- ties popular on campus at the time: Callisophea and Philomathea. Elmira College had no weekly at this time, so Sibyl combined news articles with its literary gems. Poems, essays, fairy stories, and a column of interesting geological items graced the first publi- cation. What is a college without a year book? That's what the young ladies of Elmira asked themselves in the year 1896. Their decision resulted in a book of pictorial mem- ories and journalistic achievements popularly known as IRIS, and designed to offer "an expression of the life and spirit of our Alma Materf' The year 1917 saw an important division of the literary publications of Elmira College. Chiefly responsible was the Elmira College Weekly, better known today as Octagon. This paper was first organized in that year under the management of Sibyl. The double responsibility of two publications proved too much, however, and the Weekly became a separate paper with its own staff. With the basic purpose of encouraging an interest in journalism, Octagon keeps us informed in all matters concerning "doings" on campus. 1841 DOROTHY GRAEVES ' President STUDENT GOVERNMENT Respectfully we view .... faculty and student members of Joint Council, making "recommendations for the betterment of conditions of college life" .... House Repre- sentatives, reporting violations to Senate .... Executive Council members, directing organization life. Impudently we suspect that these reputedly dignified meetings some- times lapse into gay informality. We know a little more about the affairs of our Senators. Every Week We hear the minutes of their last night's meeting. We hear them . . . speak of twelve o'clocks, incomplete registrations, and two minute accumulatives .... prescribe the "do's,' and "dont,s" of conduct .... record our good deeds and our misdeeds .... and temper their justice with mercy. We know all about Student Association meetings. Candy from the bookstore .... letters from home .... absurd skits .... pertinent and impertinent questionnaires . . . . friendly raillery-those are the little, gay things. A leader to respect . . . . a covenant to keep .... a consciousness of "individual and community responsibility for the conduct of students in our college lifei'-these are the big, solemn things. Wednes- days at eleven belong to us. E851 IM' GUM ,il 4"'l50 - ' f:,LJf'W' , -Q 'Af' TJ f 'GQMPH ,NELU IZ- rn M QL' W. WWW SENATE PosT, BEATTY, M.

In the year-'s course, we've acquired some very bad habits. You'll have to make allowances for that wrinkle in the Editorial brow-it came from planning, devising, checking every detail, supervising the whole. For the determined set of the Managerial mouth-it came from arguments with ads, finances, and subscriptions. For our "impressionable" writers-they're still scribbling .... for our cocked headed artists-theyire still angle hunting .... for our diplomatic, now belligerent business women-they're still selling. No one of us seems to realize that We need no longer play at being properly professional, harried, and hardworking. We suppose it's because we liked doing it and because, being conceited mortals, We like what we've done. We hope you will, too. E961 E D I T O S R T I A A F L F JANE GILL .....,... ........

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 everywhere have suffered from loss of enrollment. At Elmira College there has been a steady increase of the past three years. This year with an enrollment of 379, there is a 7.4 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- 1. 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 Reg- istrar or the President giving their names and ad- dresses. 3. By writing the President, for the benefit of the Administration of the College and the Trustees, any- thing you know that will help make the College better. We thank you for your past cooperation.
