To have a Weekend you must have a girl and a boy. Our girl is Nancy, as we have explained, and she stands for YOU. Our boy is just a boy, a typical boy, and he stands for your date. Of course vve don't expect you to believe everything we write down here-that's vvhy vve're telling you all about our little plan beforehand. But we do vvant you to be- lieve us when vve say that vve have tried to give you that part of your college career which will always be with you, that part which you will remember when you are "old" and Hseasonedu and "mature", the essence of Elmira.

Avery, associate professor ot euthenics, who was striclcen with a heart attaclt after arriving at her Maine home For the holiday. Miss Avery was graduated from Simmons and received her master's degree from the University ot Chicago. She had been teaching at Elmira since 1930, and while at Elmira she won many Friends among the faculty and student body. l-ler capable teaching, her conscientious attention to every duty en- trusted to her, her devotion to the interests ol her students established for her a position ot high esteem on the campus. DWIGHT... Long beloved by Elmirans, Cornelia Porter Dwight, professor ot mathe- matics from 1886 to 1910, died in March, 1941, at the age of ninety-tive. Miss Dwight had been professor emeritus since her retirement. Atter re- ceiving a master ot arts degree from Elmira in 1909, she taught in this country and abroad with the American Board ot Foreign Missions. While teaching at Elmira, Miss Dwight was a very popular member ot the faculty, was patron saint ot the classes oi1897, 1907, and 191 Q, and the 1902 "ll2lS,' was dedicated to her. l-ler strength of character, high standards of achievement, refinement, and gentle humour will always be remembered by those who lcnew her. GEORGE MORGAN McKNIGHT... George Morgan McKnight, leader of Elmira's Trinity Church choir, better lcnown to Elmirans as the head of the music department from 1894 to 1936, died in April, 1941. Mr. McKnight was awarded the degree of bachelor ot music by Elmira in 1900. Respected and loved by his associates tor many admirable traits, he demanded dependability and set an unparalleled example. Always, he was dignified, courteous, charitable, high prin- cipled. A stained-glass window has been placed in Trinity Church in his memory. 13 SHl Sllllllli HI Slue told him about time lris patlw, and the bridge, and tlwe Fireman's axe under the bell in Cowles, and fAxlumnae's empty elevator slwalt.

SCENE: BQNFHQE, MAY Q3, 1942. The flames rise higher and higher into the dark night . . . sixty-eight pairs of eyes stare hypnotically at the brightness. The surprises of engagements, well-kept secrets, tales of forbidden adventures have all been told. Letters from Lieutenant Hthis," Ensign "that," and "that man from Annapolis" have been consumed by the fire Cand an equal number have been keptj, report cards sans A's, complicated drawings of the nervous system of the frog, statistical graphs, lists of chapel cuts, text books too dog-eared to sell have in turn been offered cere- moniously to the fire. Now the pagan pomp and ritual is over. . . and the Class of '42, their chins in their hands, lie watching the flames licking around their material ties to Elmira . . . all of them thinking much too sentimental thoughts for anyone but the Class of '42 The bonfire dances savagely. . .no one dares speak and break the magical stillness . . . suddenly, the fire roars higher and tapers off into a long, thin, brightly glowing Genie. It is as if she had been expected . . . this elongated fire sprite, who waves and nods quite prettily amidst the flames. Softly and deeply. . . "l am that part of you and Elmira that will never burn . . , You have made me, and in these four years l have grown to such proportions that nothing can de- stroy me, for l am made of laughter and tears, wishes and hopes, trials and tribulations, friendship and love. l came into being even before you had dried your homesick tears freshman year . . .when you noticed a little bird that lived outside of your window in the ivy . . . when you met Dr. and Mrs. Pott who became your friends and idols all at once . . . and found that you were already somebody, for they called you all by name.

Christmas parties, twinkling candles . . . you carrying on a tradition, Freshmen Christmas caroling . . .brownies at Dr. and Mrs, Pottxs and popcorn balls at the Dean's . . . serenading everybody in the wee dark hours oi the morning. You skiied on l-larris l-lill, tobogganed, cut a Figure on the ice 56 on the pond, made snow men and pelted one another with snow balls.

You even sat out on the terrace porch under the giant umbrellas in the May rains to see the lamps along the path reflected through the green of the huge trees . . . the lights dancing in the puddles and on the little sil- vered fountain statue. It was magical to hear the rain whisper and rattle in the trees and breathe in the fresh earthy air. ln June, you bid your big sisters goodbye with a large lump in your throats. "You progressed to your Junior year . . . upperclassmen with little sisters who were darlings. You had a concert with Colgate, the first Midwinter Hop, horseshows, appendectomies galore, your Junior Weekend . . . that year you won the Merry Chanters' Contest with the 'Ballad of Elmira College' That year also, because of the war, you gave up the New York Concert and sent an ambulance to England, and Dr. Pott went to Washing- ton to help the government.

H 59 Q-EH, iHiY lllllili Hi iHlS Saint George really acquired a dragon when the class of 1944 adopted him, for, even as Freshmen, the class showed marked Sophomoric characteristics, and, from present indications, will probably continue to be fiercely Sophomoric until graduation. Experts at rule-breaking, dating, and general destruction, '44 blunders happily on, making out of staid Cowles l'lall a never-ending burlesque show. No previous class ever derived so much childish pleasure out of being able to go to breakfast at 8:Q9M in pinned-up pa- jamas and hair resembling a dust mop with a side part, while the other three classes fought their way through the snow drifts from their respective dormi- tories. Who can forget begging Jeanie to "let me ring the bell' '... a joy almost as triumphant as Bessie's swinging back and forth on the bell rope to prevent the curfew back in Cromwell's day. And what sou- venir of Cowles would be complete without mention of that bird cage on a rope, the elevator, more slan- dered, abused, and accompanied than a roommate. ln spite of their flagrant reputation for disunity, the Sophomores turned out en masse at six in the morning to surprise the planners of the Junior-l:resh- man picnic. That same morning they upheld their repu- tation for love of food by rushing back to the dormi- tory in time to eat a second breakfast. Partly because they were still signing their auto- graphs forthe above mentioned manoeuver and partly because that ole Junior class showed itself to be con- sistently shrewd, the Sophomores were among those who joined in the suspense of unsuccessfully won- dering whom the Freshmen had elected class presi- dent. Up until the last minute, Juniors were kept busy pulling Sophomores out of closets, from under beds, and all of the other obvious hiding places in Alumnae 2 vxfa X Hllllllllliil... l'lall, to protect their little sisters' secret. Embarrassed, the Sophomores appeared in chapel with a question mark painted inside the frame made for the presidents name, unhappily remembering the previous year when the Juniors knew everything they had planned before it had been entered in the class minutes. When Mountain Day rolled around, the Sopho- mores enthusiastically planned a mass picnic at Enfield Park in lthaca, left about noon, dispersed in six cars, and did not meet again until midnight back at the dormitory. All claimed to have been at Enfield . . . but Chi Phi and Kappa Alpha reported having Elmira visitors on the same day. . . quelle coincidencel No one was naive enough to go mountain-climbing, but from the tired faces bending over the sign-out book at midnight, one might have supposed that the Alps had been the picnic site.

Definitely not the dainty lawn-party type, the Sophomores showed their ingenuity with a "Bowery Ball" theme lor the Soph l-lop the Saturday night of Junior Weelcend. After much weighing ol the dignity involved, they had the temerity to install the chaperones in a barber shop, replete with hair tonic and cuspi- dors. 'Round the gym walls hung posters advertising UlVlorpheus' Flophouse-Beds Q5c per night, Q6c with sheets" and "Guisseppe's Barber Shop and Clip Joint." Sophomores were saved the embarrassment ol apologizing for their orchestra, lor the dancers assumed it to be part ol the Bowery theme . . . and not be- cause its members vvore derbysl Alter weel4s of lriendly rivalry with the Freshmen, the Sophomores buried the hatchet with an otlicial "Buddy Party" in the gym, where the Freshmen matched hair bows to Find their Sophomore "buddies" Midvvinter l"lop lound the Sophomores brealcing tradition by arriving at the dance at 'lO:3O, so that their dates could claim various torrid telegrams from the band leader. When Winter Sports Day was announced, the Sophomores stayed in bed until noon, dreaming of the Po- conos, then dressed hurriedly and went rushing down town to the movies before the prices could change. Sev- 62 eral intrepid souls cut Figures on the pond or went skiing, but, for the most part, the class made a gallant attempt at being blase. The Sophomores have many things in common: a mixture of admiration and aHection lor their patron saint, a total lack ol comprehension where rules concerning quiet hours are concerned, a knack for being in the shower during a Fire drill Csix persons to a showerD, a driving desire to wear anyone's clothes but their own, a hatred oi a certain eight o'clock class. There are, however, some individual group peculiarities which might be noted. For example, the Luncheon Club, that group of epicureans who remain at some unfortunate waitress' table, drinking glass alter glass of milk, eating three or four extra desserts per person, and taking everything they can't eat in enormous napkin-wrapped packages for "afternoon snacks." Not to be forgotten is the group of Octagon-chasers, phenomena usually occurring after midnight, accom- panied by shrieks, skidding noises, and heavy breathing. Purpose ofthe chase is still a deep mystery-wit seems to have become a kind of tradition, like the hunt in England.

They vvept harder than ever when it came their turn to sing-and when they shovved up that same evening to usher at Senior lhespis, they were still llaunting red noses and damp eyes. Beloved by the Seniors, their big sisters, tolerated by the Juniors, loolced upon warily by the Freshmen, and uneasily watched over by the Faculty, the Sophomores led a merry and unsubdued existence in Cowles, hope- fully loolced lorvvard to joining the tolerant Juniors in lompldns the following year. 65 lHll lllllllll Hi lHl lHl3HlllN... The mouse on third floor could tell you a lot about us freshmen, if you should stop to inquire. l-le lcnows how we felt when we first entered Alumnae Lounge. A tall army of Corinthian columns and a carpet as green and wide as the ocean are not too comforting to a Freshman feeling new and strange, gauche and tiny in her insignificance. Since that day we've be- come accustomed to Alumnae and in all probability Alumnae is used to us, but there was a time when we were bewildered, uncertain of our new environ- ment. The mouse on third floor lcnows exactly how we felt, because once he was young, too. After our trunks had arrived and our rooms were settled the mouse was really in his glory, for that meant a happy home life for him. When food came back in our laundry cases he lcnew that there would be jam and craclcercrumbs, so he scuttled along the floor boards to inform his relatives. We never could discover just where he lived, but we lcnew that in the wee small hours when our eyes were glassy with dissipated inspiration, when the watersheds of Bib- lical history were running riot in our brains, from somewhere he was watching with soft little eyes, waiting for us to turn off the lights. We lcnew, too, that after we were tuclced into bed with our dreams close beside us, he would creep forth bravely, very bravely, in the darlc. We could hear the faint swish of a velvety nose on coolcie tins, or the sound of nib- bling. Mountain Day amused him particularly. When we bemoaned the rain and the greyness of the morning, he snickered knowingly. Both he and Dr. Pott were sure that the sun would come out, and of course it did. ln the meantime some of us slept as best we could, 'though if the incessant thuds on the second ww. 5 66 floor and the crealdngs on third meant anything, a football game was in progress in one place and a bit of modern dance in the other. When the sun finally did put in appearance, we scattered to our different destinations, to lthaca, picnicking, painting by the pond. That left the mouse to himself and gave him a full and welcome holiday. So many women must be too much of a muchness, sometimes. Perhaps the earliest hour the mouse ever saw us Freshmen leave our beds was on the morning of the Junior-Freshman picnic. We tried to lceep it a secret from the Sophomores, but they arrived Full of vim and victory and ate brealcfast with us on Harris l'lill.

So 'deanneru was crowned and Dr. Pott was welcomed into our midst with cheers and many wavings of golden chrysanthemums. Prom weelcend was fun for him Cthough he can't stand the smell of gardeniasll. It amused him to see us dreamy and star-eyed. l-le even audited our hash sessions afterwards, 'though we didn't lmow it at the time. l'le still thinlcs that women are fools and that gardenias have a hideous odor. Maybe he's right. The weelcend of December 8th completely baffled the mouse on third floor. Qn Sunday morning we were all so glum that he must have thought we'd had a bit too much of Saturday night at l'lilltop. This time he was wrong. There were two important crises we had to face, that cheerless morning, and for us it was hard to determine which was worse. The Japs were at Pearl l-larbour and somebody had found out that we'd broken the fire es- cape regulation. We had long, serious conversations, the world had no top or bottom, something inside us was shattered. ln Chapel the following Monday we heard the decision of the President of the country. Cn the night of the same day we went before Student Government to hear its decision. With both ultimatums ringing in our ears like the sound of little bells, we sat on the bench in baclc and had much to thinlc about. 68 Christmas vacation came, eventually, but ended much too soon. We came baclc to college with snowilalces in our eyes and memories ol eggnogs and pine needles. We lcnew all too well that long hours oi study and concentration were ahead ol us. We retired to our rooms with profound boolqs and lettuce sandwiches, morose but determined. Second semester was just as important as the lirst, to us. Ii we had asl4ed the mouse about what was to come he could have put considerable light on the situation, for we weren't the lirst class oi Freshmen to leave its dent in the walls ol Alumnae . . . yes, the mouse had seen many Freshmen come and go. But one just doesnit approach a mouse about such matters. Winter Sports, Day was proclaimed. It was a wonderful surprise, and we seized the opportunity to follow our own whims lor a day. As on Mountain Day that fall, we quit the dorm and made a bee-line lor the hills and the wind and the sunshine. Some ol us went skiing, others picnicked or hilced, most of us ate too much and be- came so beautifully tired that the day was a huge success. When the last strealcs of daylight had lelt the slcy there was nothing to do but roll happily into our beds.

We had smolcing privi- leges and wonderful punch . . . a wonderful time. Spring came to Elmira-eventually. The slush didn't last forever. The weather made up its mind and the sun shone consistently. The straggly stallcs along the path to Cowles blossomed into iris, grass sprouted up, the trees bore leaves, lrogs croaclced from the muddy pond. The mouse was lelt to lend lor himself during Easter vacation. We worried about him while we were home, when we had a free minute. But most of the time we were too busy making the most oi our shortened holiday to give much thought to lriend mouse. l'le greeted us on our return to Alumnae with a cheerful flourish of his tail- he couldn't have fared too badly during our absence. May Day was our next big venture. The mouse recognized the appraising glint in our eyes as we loolced at the Sophomore, the one we had chosen as our May Queen. l'le had sutlered with us, sympathetically, as we groaned and bumped through Flit classes, he was proud when he heard that our bruises had not been in vain. As heroines, scene shiiters, or mascara-dabbers, we threw ourselves with a will into Freshman speech plays. We were told that the results were gratifying. We sailed through Senior Weekend, party rutlles trailing. We 70 made elaborate plans to hide our banquet from the clever Sophomores-they seemed to have an unusual knack for poking their noses into other peoples secrets. We tried to keep our minds on our books through those gay May Days. Suddenly exams were upon us, and it was over . . . Toward the last, we saw little ol the mouse on third Floor. ln the very beginning, it is true, he had frightened us. Those were the days when we were shy ol him, when we clutched our skirts, shrieked, jumped on radiators, piled pyramids ol chairs against our doors-the days when we didn't quite accept him. But as time wore on things were cliiferent. We outgrew our wariness and he became part of the family. We actually enjoyed his com- pany when he was with us and missed him when he was not. Toward the last, he seemed to be leading an inconspicuous and quietly reserved life, and with good reason. It seems that Alumae was invaded by a tiger cat with great yellow eyes-a great threat to any normal mouse, and even more of a menace to a carefree mouse like ours. We called the cat Cbehind his back, ol courseD everything from "Blouzelinda" Csome oi us had been reading John Gayb to just plain "l'lepcat.,' Much as we admired the feline race, we couldn't help but feel a certain loyalty to the mouse on third Floor. l-le was extremely clever and we knew that he would come to no harm. But we still worry about him, now and then . . . 9b'7y,a , JW I . wr. MJ 3, 0.0! NZJQMWQW. Mr f 'I1 SHl SIENHI llll.. l-le said, "Why?"

Nancy decided that he needed im- pressing and the one vvho was best fitted to brag about our lhespians was Rosie Kane, president of Thespis, and the most versatile actress on campus. Rosie needed no urging and immediately a run- ning narrative vvas on its vvay. We'll give you a brief outline.

Kane, completely out of breath, leaned against Cowles' pillars, exhausted. She had told her story well, and in rapid teletype manner which is distinctly the Kane style. Nan explained to the boy, aiter they had thanked Rosie and seated themselves for the sec- ond act, that Thespis is one of our major organiza- tions. Every one in the college belongs, and the entire student body votes for its president. Many of the other organizations are run on the same basis. When we pay our blanket tax we are en- titled to membership. Each oi the organizations in this plan receives money from the blanket tax Fund. Qther clubs, such as the French Circle, are inde- pendent oi blanket tax. They are iinanced by means oi periodic dues. "QM clubs are our very own," Nan explained. "We conduct the elections ourselves and do all the voting. They are just another example of the democracy oi Elmira."

HILLTOP GOODNIGHT ...11 ,pf -1 BREAKFAST AT MOS!-IER'S Morning came early to Nan and the boy. Mo- sher's Drug Store, a 'lmustu For every Elmira visitor, was their First destination. There the boy met l-larold and John and heard about Art. l"le began to feel the vvell vvorn charm oi the place, to Fit it in with Hill- top as a Favorite haunt oi Elmirans. As Nan vvrangled a slug for the juice box out oi John, the boy toolc in the shiny soda bar littered with punch boards and ash trays, the magazine racl4 with everything from "Mademoiselle" to "True Detective," the gaudy boxes of candy, and the rest of the hete- rogenious collection that malces fVlosher's just a little bit diiierent from any other drug store. After having their brealciast, a true Moshefs brealciast of coifee, toast, and jam, they ambled baclc to the campus. Nan told the boy about Uncle Dudley, our campus cop, with his cheery greetings and his shiny-buttoned uniform and his oft-embarrassing Flashlight. Baci: on campus he caught glimpses oi the people vvho lceep the mechanical part oi the college running smoothly, oi the blue-and-white uniformed maids, oi the busy little men with their tireless ralces, oi Bert and his endless chores. l-le didnit know any- thing about most oi the things they did, just as you and l have no conception of the immensity of their job-oi the number of things that can happen to lights and wires and drain-pipes. "UNCLE DUD" 91 "BERT" MISS HAPEMAN It wasn't long, then, before they heard the Qcta- gon bell ring three times, and Nan explained to him that that meant food. OF course, the boyis entrance into the dining room caused something akin to a young riot-men in the dining room are a phenome- the terrace, where they could see and talk to everyone. Someone told Nan that she had a tel- egram, and on their way to collect it, she told him about Miss l-lapeman, the cheery autocrat of the telephone room, and the indispensable an- nouncer ol specials,telegrams,and express pack- ages. Miss l-lapeman greeted them with her usual, "You Nancy Jackson? Telegram. Butl haven't censored it yet." They wandered back through chapel, by the bookstore, and the post otlice, three times a day the most popular place on campus. Nan showed him the bursar's otlice where etticient Miss porter presides when she isn't running from the bookstore to the post otlice. On the way across the hockey Field to the inlirmary Nan told him how one line March weekend we be- gan to notice odd red dots on each others' laces and to feel queer little bumps behind our ears- .Q sa, - fx .2 non, except lor Danny and Jimmy, the white-jacketed bus boys, who nonchalantly push their little carts around every night.

They ski on every slope they Find- vvhether it be the gentle incline from Cowles downto the hockey Field or whether it be the Pocono mountains in Pennsylvania, The slciing season isn't very long and many oi us exaggerate, with dis- asterous results, the hali-squat- ting position favored by the ex- perts . . . but vve love it.

They swayed and tvvirled to the tunes ol a name band, or was it a local orchestra? They didn't notice-they were more moved by the at- mosphere-the sparkling, festive, gay mood that pervades all Elmira dances. l-le savv us at ourscintil- lating best and smiled his approval. She, too, savv us at our best and marveled. The shining eyes and hair, gorgeous gowns and immaculate grooming vvere a lar cry from weekday slacks and polo coats, bandannas and shiny noses, she thought. l-le knevv nothing ol our weekday lives, but that was really his loss. l-le clidn't know about pa- jamas at breakfast, shorts at midnight. Pigtails hang- ing over bent shoulders at the libe, scarlet-rimmed glasses pushed up onto pencil streaked ioreheads he had never seen. But he knevv that under the glamorous exteriors he savv on the dance Floor 104 were earnest, seeking minds, bent on education, Nan told him about our other weekends. She explained the crisp excitement oi Junior vveekend, in the Fall, vvhen leaves crackle underioot and the sky is a clear cold blue. She told him about the Saturday ot Junior Weekend-or picnics at l-larris Hill or par- ties at Sullivan's or a football game at Cor- nell. As she talked she thought oi her three Junior vveekends, ol hovv much more the Weekend meant to her when she finally be- came a Junior. She remembered our Junior dinner dance at the Elmira country club. She remembered an orchestra hiding behind potted palms, gala evening Wraps hung in the powder room, corsage boxes, and that glorious "arrived" Feeling. She told him about Senior weekend in the spring when new life trembles in the air and pink clouds scud across an ultramarine sky. She told him about Saturday picnics at lau- ghannock, or on the shores ol Seneca, or Keuka, or Cayuga. Thoughts of gay cotton dresses, Cornell blazers, tin loving cups, pretzels and mustard came to her. When he asked more about dances at El- mira, Nan told him about Uvicl' dances. Theres something informal even about the title of a "Vic" dance. The abbreviated name suggests that corners will be cut as well as rugs. lhere's something nice about being able to pick out your favorite recorcls, there's something novel about being able to smoke in the Student Gov. room, if the dance is in Tompkins, or in the date rooms, il the dance is in Alumnae. The boy heard about the "Vic" dance that the Seniors gave the Freshmen in the fall . . . to get them Hstartedn at Cornell . . .a successful venture. l'le heard about the Uvicn dance that the Freshmen gave in Alumnae, about the l-'larvard Glee Club Hvicn dance, about the Sophomore 'xvicn dance with its hand picked imports. Nan also told him about the youngest of El- mirais annual dances, Mid-Winter l'lop. The boy listened dreamily as they danced . . . 'lm pretty lucky to be at an Elmira dance," he said with a teasing chuckle after Nan Finished her long harangue. , M Jr 'N xt. 1 . I 1 . law HNH lHlN Il WHS Hllll. Qver just as things got started, so it seemed. Sun- day morning dawned just like any Sunday you can re- memberacrisp and cold, or warm and tingling, or damp and bleak. l'le and she had breakfast together, and mixed with the aroma ol cotlee was the anticipa- tion ol parting. They talked it all over-their weekend, VCUR weekend. They talked ol Elmira. And as they talked, Nancy's mind wandered to the heritage of Elmira. She thought ofthe long years behind and the many ahead for her college. She thought ol the women, Fine, gracious women with the stamp ol the place upon them, who have been leaving June alter June . . .women who have never Forgotten Elmira. She thought ol the time, not so lar oil, when she, too, would have to leave. She knew that she would go regretlully, thankfully-regretlul at having to give up her wonderlul college days, thankful that she was so well equipped to leave the shelter of its halls. The boy's mind wandered, too. l-le thought less ot the heritage of Elmira, more ol its spirit. l'le had been struck by the friendliness that marks all Elmirans, l'le wondered at the number of Friends he had made in three short days. l-le wanted to come back some time, a sincere welcome would await him again, he knew. They made breakfast last as long as possible, mak- ing excuses for "just one more cigarette." 'lhey said the things you always say when it's over. They said they wished it were Friday again and the weekend just starting. They thanked each other tor a good time..-lhey smiled tired smiles and smoked one more. Finally the parting could be put otl no longer. They murmured quick goodbyes and he was ott. Nan waved as the station wagon pulled out of sight and then he was gone. Weary and happy she trudged up the stairs, back to a weekday Elmira, stripped ol some of its weekend glamor but retaining the line essentials that make the college what it is. As she sat gazing at his picture Cyou have to dream a while before you start to work, you knowl, Nan decided that her weekend, our weekend, VQUR weekend, had been just about perfect. We think it was pretty wonderful, too, and we hope you en- joyed it as much as we. 1511 T13-?5'.1' Aa, f 1' ,ni ' P' F ' 1 2 ,PP ' Y'-Eg: ' .T g: L.
