there was a Weekend at Elmira College. lt vvasn't Junior Weekend or Senior Weekend,
it vvas an hypothetical Weekend, a Weekend typical ol Elmira. 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.
But let us return to our story.

Easter vacation in 1941 brought with it an untimely shoclt in the death of
Evelyn C. 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.
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
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. Slwe took lwim clown
tlwe well worn patlws to tlwe lake. l'le laughed when
slwe told lwim we call it passion Puddle . . , tlwey looked
over tlwe amplwitlweater. l-le saw tlwe terraced green
dripping gradually down to a level sward flanked by
trees of darkest green. Slwe saw rows and rows of
chairs Filled witlw people, a colorful stage, and emot-
ing 'll1espians.Sl1e looked again and slwe saw dancing
Figures gracefully tributing a Queen.Sl1e saw brown-
limbed sun maidens stretclwed out getting browner.

We, the class ol 'Forty-Three,
Will try to write our history.
We won't give data we Find shoclcing,
Or tell you how the men came Flocldng.
We'll give you points of truth, give heed-
Read carefully and weigh each deedl
As l:I'ZSl'1iTi2D, QVZCFI, red-cheelcecl, Cl2dI'l-Sl102d,
Missing papa, mama, Food,
Awed by copious rain and snow,
We weathered winter's blasty blow,
ln spring we bloomed and gave surprise,
Turned quite hep and gave our all,
Sang and brolce a precedent:
We won the Merry Chanters' prizel
The classics Qnot out-done by swingD
l-lelped us in our second Fling.
Tschailcowsky bowed with humble grace,
And we, the Freshmen, toolc our place.
Qur May Day pu lied our chests with pride:
With body muscles wealcly flexed,
Our ligaments we gaily tore,
And laws of gravity defied.
Our Sophomore year, a brand-new stage,
With added poundage, knowledge, age,
Began with l-lop, a social Wow.
CWe'd shown our worth right up to nowj
You know in spring a young man's fancy . .
And so Mock May Day we did give,
With "Adolph" Shields, our choice, presiding
ln contrast with our real queen, Nancy.
Hlll iHi lllNlllHS
Our Junior year a Ca burdened oneb
Kept us up from set to sun.
We worlced, we slaved with little sisters,
"ll2lS,', Proms, and writing blisters.
With Furrowed brow, without complaint
We carried through all past traditions,
Guided by the master hand
Cl Dr. l-larris, patron Saint. . .
Though we fthe Class of ,Forty Threeb
Will not go down in history,
Forgotten in the luture, sure . . .
Elmira, we all feel secure
That we'll live on with you, a part
Of building, name, but mostly heart.

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

and break the magical stillness . . . suddenly, the fire

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
"l grew more than you knew, then, freshman week,
though it poured and you wrote tearful letters home.
That week you started your Elmira hellois, and l
thrive on hello's. Ar teas you met your future friends
and the Alumnae 'phone jingled constantly. . . long
distance . . . Cornell calling . . . also future friends.
Cn Sunday, the rain ceased and in bright new suits
you went to Church . . . Elmira, the city of churches.
You saw the town people in their special Sunday
happiness and you got that certain Elmira Sunday feel-
ing. You met the professors . . . and found them an-
other part of Elmira friendliness. Your big sister
jaunted over to see you and, though awed, you
thought she was swell. When she took you to the
secret Junior-freshman picnic . . . you ceased to be
awed . . . and started to adore her.
"You were introduced to Elmira autumn. . .a feel-
ing which can be found nowhere else fwhich only a
super poet can put into words and l'm just an ordi-
nary Genieb. lt isn't just the leaves burning, the blue
of the sky and the keenness of the air. . . or the swirl-
ing leaves. . . it's an indescribable something that you
feel strongest coming back from down-town just
about as you reach the infirmary, as you start up the
slope along the iron fence. You see the hockey team
in front of Science l-lall, hear their shouts and the
crack of hockey-sticks . . .Leaves whirl all about you,
crackling under' your feet, and drift into the pond.
Little children scream their joy from the out-door
theater as they gather horse-chestnuts, and everyone
has that happy Elmira hello wherever you go. Cn

that misty morning Cwhich heralded a sunny Elmira day? when you were awakened with squealing excited

didn't have to think the whole blessed time . . . just one grand picnic. . . hiking, swimming Qin spite of the

ul took on greater proportions on that First Cap and Gown Day. . . when in the formality oi the occasion, you
sang Cior the First time since you had memorized it for the Grey Book examj 'Elmira's l-lonored l-listory' and caught
some oi the importance oi that song and its implications Cwhich you now know so welll Then on Senior Day, you
saw the tears in the Seniors' eyes and were glad that you were Freshmen. That memorable day, you announced
your Patron Saint, Miss Qrbison, who is your dearest tie to Elmira . . . Orbie, who is at home whether the so-
phisticated lady at a Prom, sprawled on the grass in her slacks, or whiling way the time with her problem chil-
dren in front oi the tire at lrvine Place. The upperclassmen coaxed you to get a date and go to youriirstlflmira
Prom . . . you found it thrilling Fun and so-o-o smooth.
"Then, you saw Elmira's winter . . . 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

Concert . . .a sensation which only those who have known can lully appreciate. . . the hours ol rehearsing, the
'Special' Elmira train, the Hoboken lerry together, Gwynn's words ol encouragement and iaith Cwhich you've
all tucked away in your heartsj, 'on the air,' the formal concert to a grand glittering audience. . .the best singing
you'd ever done. . .all becoming one. . . hypnotized by Gwynn's baton. Miss Finter took you into the secret ol
Modern Dance and you 'Flitted' until your muscles ached . . . but you kept on practicing diligently lor May Day
. . .and in no time at all, you were dancing on the sloping green ol Watkins Glen to Moussorsky's Pictures at an
Exhibition . . . you could see the May Queen and her procession wind down the woodsy path to the royal
pavilion, near the hundreds of laces which were the audience. You could see the gay people rellectecl in the
pond at the loot ol the knoll and they could see you . . . sprites in bright colors . . . a part ol the music that
thundered and whispered from somewhere in the trees.
"When vacation came, you raced otl promising to write olten . . . and then were glad to come back in Sep-
tember again . . . to Find a class who held doors lor you and actually stood up lor you. It was great being Sopho-
mores . . . having you own special buddies from the Freshman class, giving your own l'lop C0lcl hleidelburg ,. .

stay in South America, came back with colorful stories and you liked her individualized hello's as she hurried to
her otlice of problems. Members of the faculty and you produced .labberwacky which packed and brought
down the house. . . it was a picnic working with your professors and you admired them even more than before.
You wished that Sophomore year would never end. . .you loved Cowles . . . even to its bats in the spring . . .

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. Knitting needles clicked and the R. A. F. received Elmira-knit sweaters and helmets.
"At last you became Seniors . . . you felt awfully old and yet awfully young at the same time. You found
yourself saying, 'this is our last Mountain Day, our last Convocation, our last hockey season, our last Christmas
party, our last fall . . . ' and you took on those wistful Senior attitudes. On Senior Weekend, you marched into
breakfast. . . a green army of singers . . . parents beaming and everyone yielding you the day for feeling Se-
niorly. Everything was perfect . . . and in the afternoon, there you were in the chapel grouped around Qrbie . . .

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
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.

Brought bacl4 to civilization by Dr. Kahrlls formal dinner parties, to which the Sophomores vvere invited
in small groups Cah, wise patron saintlj, the Sophs returned to Cowles with satisfied appetites, hair cor-
sages, and repartee considerably sharpened from trying to compete in conversation with the two younger Kahrls.
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-
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.

height ot inetficiency being reached one evening when four, playing a Ufew hands" alter dinner, left the "rec"

The class boasts a few domestically-inclined individuals, one ot whom found her domestictendencies
frowned upon when she hung blanlcets, afghan, Flannel pajamas out on the Front Fire escape to air-and found
herselt explaining, red-laced, to Miss Foorcl, in order to recover them. 1 '
A reverential mention goes to those long-distance uoperatorsu-those gals who casually lift the receiver and
hear "Texas calling," "Hello, Elmira, this is New Haven," or "Hello, Desperate, this is lthacaf'
Smooth individuals when it comes to handing out a line to the housemother or stealing a roomie's clothes tor
a Saturday night date, the bold Sophs have one fear in common-that ol mice. The bolclest Sophomore would
rather lace a psychology mid-semester than loolc a Cowles mouse in the eye. And the mice in Cowles are not the
timid pink-eyed type-they are lull-blooded, lusty little animals, who really have awe-inspiring eyes, especially

if they happen to be building a nest in an evening slipper or having a party in a lull bag ol coolcies. One member
oi the class was actually seen attaclcing a small, pin-headed mouse with a dust mop.
l-lard, tough, and noisy little rascals, these same Sophomores were observed to weep heartily during the
Senior Weekend program-not the slovv, drip type of Weep, but rather a convulsive uhonlc-honlcn which re-
echoed throughout the chapel. 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.
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-
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
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.
The only thing to compensate for our first defeat
was the announcement of our class president and

So 'deanneru was crowned and Dr. Pott was welcomed into our midst with cheers and many wavings of
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.
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. Qpjc

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
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 . . .

imposed rules and the honor system, about the Grey boolc and the "approved list," about
student Chapels, and freedom ol ideas. She told him too about our other organizations

l'le made some tongue-in-the cheelf remarl4s
about our dramatic productions, our musical ex-
travaganzas. 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-

Marden, by stating that Mrs. Marden's first hus-
band, believed dead years ago, is still alive. Sev-

Kane, completely out of breath, leaned against

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."

ln case you've forgotten, Nan and her man went
to a play Friday night. Now Nan is just lilce the rest
ol you, and she just couldn't go baclc to the dorm
without showing him around the town just a little
bit. Naturally, they went to l-lilltop. He wasn't there
very long before he got into the swing ol things and
When she Finally said good night to him
under long-suffering Tompkins Arch and
climbed the stairs to bed she saw a lot of
things that he could never lcnow . . . the
post-date hash sessions and the midnight
crammings lor a Saturday-morning class, the
teeth brushings and the hair curlings andthe
weary little sighs . . .
he learned to ignore the smoke and the noise and the
shiny green paint on the walls . . . he realized that
this was the place where Nan could see her friends
at their sophisticated best and, more important, be
seen by them.
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.
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-
non, except lor Danny and Jimmy, the white-jacketed
bus boys, who nonchalantly push their little carts
around every night. Nan had to initiate the boy into
cigarettes-on-the-terrace-alter-lunch, just as much
a umustn as breakfast at Moshers. They wandered out
through the chapel and leaned against the railing ol

the dean said a sixth columnist had descended

at his own arms, but he saw no symptoms. They
laughed, and walked on. Morning had become

November, 1941, was the headline month for polls, Gallup, and Fortune. We caught the craze. The Juniors

AND TALKED. As they swung along Nan told him
about our Athletic Association, that efficient organi-
zation headed by Miss Finter and Miss Galcley
and made up of the managers ofthe various sports
which raised enough money to buy a new water
cooler for the gymnasium, was made real to
him. l'le saw each slcit in turn, the checkered
end men, the interlocutor in his white satin suit,
and the blaclc laced chorus with its red and
green ties. l-le learned that Elmira has a healthy
bunch of athletes who do much more than wallc
and tallc of a Saturday afternoon. l'le heard
about our tight-bowed Amazons who send ar-
rows winging into the large colored targets.
Somtimes the arrows fall short, of course, and
sometimes they go 'way beyond their marle-
but he heard about bulls-eyes-arrows in the
glittering gold center of the target.
She told him about Elmira's equestriennes.
l'le could smell saddle soap and horse Flesh and
see clean-limbed young women astride strong-
limbed young mares. l-le could hear pounding
hoois and urgent voices calling commands.

Weekly treks to the swimming pool at the downtown "Y" are a part of Elmirals sporting life. l.ife-
saving certificates . . . bandannas covering wet hair . . . the feel of water closing over one's head . . . all
mean a lot to Elmira's swimmers. We also play badminton. A badminton club is organized every winter
and a heated tournament never fails to wind up the season. Basketball is Elmira's favorite winter sport.
Whether in class or in class competition
almost every girl gets her hands on the
swiftly-moving ball at some time or other.
Crowds turn out for the games and a
cheering section is very often present.
ln the Winter of 'l94'l-42 all-class
teams replaced class teams and the arrange-
ment proved satisfactory. The friendly but
spirited competition that marks our tourn-
aments was as keen as ever.

Qur Faculty are a bunch oi active sportsmen, too, and they give us a good battle in the volley ball season.
We Elmirans talce our volley ball fairly seriously but vve lose with a smile when the faculty "trim" us.
Winter sports at Elmira are not limited to the indoors, by any means. We slcate on our tiny pond in
gay costumes, vve toboggan on nearby hillsf we slci. Harris l-lill has become very popular with Elmira's slciers
but they don't stop there. They
ski on every slope they Find-
vvhether it be the gentle incline
from Cowles downto the hockey

ting position favored by the ex-
perts . . . but vve love it.

They swayed and tvvirled to the tunes ol a

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-

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

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
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.

Thls IS a Plstul
when! Today it is as out-moded as many fine old printing presses. Today's college
annual staffs know that modern yearbooks require streamlined machinery, pro-
gressive thinking, and plenty of it. Editorial and business staffs, alike, find in the
Leo Hart Company a printing organization with unlimited resources for new
ideas, progressive plans, the latest type faces, dynamic layouts, and modern
machinery. No museum of out-moded ideas or printing equipment is this fine
printing plant. It is as modern as the United States' sleek new Garand rifle.
