chose you as our Patron Saint Freshman year...
helped us to solve our silly undergraduate problems . .
were responsible for our much-beloved Covvle Bin . . .
treated us to buffet suppers and teas at your house...
embarrassed us in class, and We loved it . . . you spoke in
Chapel, and We shovved up en masse...We had many a bull
session about your hats, your remarks, your sense of humor.
and after three years of studying and arguing, We agree on
one thing.. . We still choose you . . .and We, the class of
1944, dedicate this, our yearbook, to you, Dr. Kahrl.
"The College world's a stage. . .
And one girl in her time plays many parts,
Her acts being some six ages. First the Sub-freshman,
Clutching her credits and her mothers hand. . .
And then the Freshman, with new dress
And hat and homesick face. . .and then the Sophomore,
Full of strange noises, and oh, so wise. . .
And then the Junior
More mindful now of figure than of food. . .
The fifth stage shifts into black tassel and senior blazer. . .
Last scene of all. . .
Is graduation and fancied but not real oblivion,
Sans teachers, sans tests, sans money, sans everything,
But that priceless possession-a college education."
And we laughed. . .
"Whereas we may be uncertain and perplexed as to
just where our duty lies, let us remember that the
world of tomorrow presents a prospect and promise of
significant careers for educated women such as have
never existed since the dawn of time."
And we listened. . .
"It is your patriotic duty to fit yourselves
morally, intellectually, and physically to do your
part in helping to create and to keep the world free
And we acted. . .
For we know our president, Dr. Port-not only
as the far-seeing executive head of our college, not
only as the patient adviser to an annual crop of
adolescents, not only as the giver of fun-packed
square dances-but rather, we know him best as the one
from whose example we have been challenged to try to
learn how to live, by seeking truth, thinking logically, and

E Watch her meeting important people
graciously, we hear her greeting us with a cheery, "Good
morningf' We listen to her suggesting that we "wear socks
or stockings these cold mornings," we seek her sympathetic
understanding, We respond to her sparkling enthusiasm,
and we know that her simplicity and sincerity are an
integral part of the Elmira College that we love.

Brisk, business-like Miss McCall oversees with special care her
newly acquired duties as Dean of Freshmen. Her eHiciency was
such that her job as mere Admissions Director had to be
expanded to give her a new frontier.

Her grace and poise permeates the party when she acts as hostess
at one of those Sunday night suppets for her adopted class.

For her unfailing interest and unbounded effort in behalf of
Elmira, and for the gift of our "little sisters," we, the class of '44
will always be indebted.

Oh, don't ask me why I saved all this junk! My friends accuse me of being sentimental. I don't deny
it. Take that straw, for instance. Know what that is? Our "coketail" party! We dragged our little
sisters around from one group to another eager for them to meet everybody, ,hoping to impress them
with our newly acquired dignity. CLater they became acquainted with our undignilied side as we
chatted over food at the Cowle Bin.D
No, that snapshot wasn't taken at a farm. Those laughing creatures you sec in the hay are a group
of us on the Junior-Freshman picnic. Our efforts to keep our plans secret were in vain, but it was fun
being discovered hiding in the haystack. I can feel that prickly stuff down my back now. We enjoyed
sharing our hot dogs, chocolate, apples, and big bonfire with the clever Sophomores.

This is not just a piece of cotton. Don't you recognize it?Junior Weekend wouldn't have been com-
plete without a snowball for a souvenir. It was a wonderful "Prelude to Winter!" For the first time
Prom was held off campus and was strictly successful. The thrill we sensed as we glided over the floor
was one of accomplishment. Everyone had a grand time.
Here's a newspaper clipping-the one in the middle is supposed to be me. It's a scene from Tom
.S'o1oyer. We had a worthwhile experience playing in the big Keeney Theater for those hundreds of
children-probably the closest we'll ever come to the professional stage! Tom and I-luck, joe and Sid
were perfect "boys"-real ones couldn't have been better. When we presented it again at college as
Junior Thespis, we wondered who enjoyed it most. The pantaloons we wore.. . .
Oh, please, handle that botanical specimen carefully, will you? It represents an important clay in
my life--my first cap and gown day. I gave my yellow chrysanthemums to my little sisters, but I kept
the fern spray for myself. l think that was the day we actually cast aside out dreadful Sophomoric be-
havior and stepped into our new roles as Juniors. We were never more serious as We marched into
Chapel from the terrace, singing our class song, too conscious of those white tassels bobbing about in
I suppose I should throw this wish-bone away, but I hate to .... It's from our turkey dinner at
Thanksgiving time. We couldn't go home, but everything was made so pleasant for us that we really
didn't mind. The Kahrls graciously invited us to their home for Thanksgiving supper. We sang and
talked, and didn't feel the least bit homesick .... I think I'll keep it.
That gay colored napkin? Oh, I saved it from our hayride-the one we had for Dr. Kahrl after
Christmas vacation. We piled merrily onto the wagon in slacks and snowsuits and started out. It was
cold but we warmed ourselves singing any gay tune that came into our heads. The steady pace of the
horses was broken only when we stopped to pick up "Birchie" CKahrls' dogl Although we jumped
down from the wagon reluctantly after it was over, we ran eagerly into Tompkins for the hot dogs,
cocoa and doughnuts which awaited us. The ride served to invigorate us-to say nothing of what it
did to our appetites.
Don't laugh at my lock of hair. It was a memorable occasion when I walked into one of the barber
sessions for which we juniors are famous. Many of us became tired of looking at the same old face in
the mirror every day-and when that happened Mary E1len's scissors were dragged out and the follow-
ing morning strange faces appeared on campus.
I'm quite attached to the handkerchief you are holding. The stands for Eddie, I guess, but it is
Ensign to me. He was awfully nice. I spilled coke on my dress and he gave me his handkerchief to clean
it off. Do you think I was rude not to return it? I don't really need anything to remind me of our pa-
triotic gesture of entertaining the ensigns, however. We proudly accompanied them to dinner, to the
play, and then to the vic dance. The letters of thanks we received spoke for the good time they had.
I had almost forgotten that hair ribbon-it was part of the outfit which I wore to our Kiddie Party
after spring vacation. Short dresses, pigtails, dolls, and teddy bears-we all looked so silly and some of
us looked screamingly funny playing London Bridge, Drop-the-handkerchief and the Farmer in the
Dell. Could all these "children" skipping about be the Juniors? the teachers and business women of

It seems like a long time, now, since those days when everything was new and exciting and wonder-
fully "grown-up," the tea-drinking days, the homesick days, the growing-pain days when we tried to
tell everybody how collegiate we were. lt seems like a long time since our first .Merry Chanters victory,
since that first May Day with Tschaikowsky and the green grass at Watkins Glen, since the first
steak-roasts with Dr. Harris, since we stayed up all night planning what we would do during our an-
ticipated eight-weeks' campus for smoking in Alumnae, since our school-girl hearts beat a little faster
when we knew that Dr. Pott had remembered our name.
Sometimes it's even a little hard to remember just what Cowles was like, just how the stairs creaked
and the windows stuck and the wind howled in the trees outside at night. That was the year the

Cornell boys came in droves, the year we really got to know each other, the year we planned our mid-
year cramming so as to leave fifteen minutes out of every study hour for a cigarette on the cold, cold
terrace C"to keep the mind cleai-"D, fifteen minutes for horseplay that never got stale in the halls,
fifteen minutes to see what Janie was doing to her Psych., or what Psych. was doing to Janie.
Junior year was the yearbook year, the closest but somehow hardest-to-remember year. For the
first time in our lives we began to feel adult, and we weren't quite sure whether the sensations were
pleasant or not. On December 7th War was declared, and that night some of us realized that there were
a lot of things we didn't know anything about. That year we had to think a little about what was
going to happen to us "after We got out"-the cold, cruel world seemed colder and crueller than it
ever had before. And we began to love Elmira in a way that was entirely new.
We chose our little sisters and thought they were the smoothest things we had ever seen, we chased
monkeys in the treetops, we played bridge in the early-morning hours, ate too many cheese crackers,
watched the babies in the nursery and hoped the little brats would choke on their junket Calthough
they were cuteb, took our studies more seriously and nobody flunked anything.
They told us the last mile would be the hardest, but by the time we were Seniors the educational
process didn't seem so tough. Things had changed a lot since that day we first unloaded our shiny new
lamps and out flowered chintzes and waved goodbye to Poppa from Alumnae steps: the War had begun
to affect the college routine and the governments calisthenics to affect our musculatureg some drastic
changes had been made in the faculty, in the set-up of our coursesg the men no longer flocked, in fact,
there just weren't any meng the bridge games were longer and the knitting needles clicked faster and the
movies seemed more entertainingg we spent Thanksgiving on campus and passed our mid-years before
Christmasg we dreamed of the days when we could drive to Hilltop and cheerfully walked all over the
city of Elmira. We grumhled about desserts for the lack of theml and adjourned to the Cowle Bin for
an ice cream suckerg we saved butter and coffee and sugar and deposited our scrap metal in boxes that
never were emptied.
But enough of the Old Order remained to keep us reasonably blissful. We went to Prom in long
skirts and tried not to notice how many uniforms were present. We went through all the old arguments
about Freshman door-holding, let the faculty beat us at volleyball, went to the movies on Mountain
Day in good order, sang our sentimental songs and wept copiously in our blue and white Senior suits on
Senior Day. The telephone calls on second floor Tompkins came from farther and farther away but they
still came through, and the post oflice was just as jammed after Wednesday Chapels. Other faculty
members pinch-hit for Dr. and Mrs. Harris and made us feel almost as much at home. We got just as
tired of studying and were just as glad to get back to the old grind after Christmas vacation. No, things
really hadn't changed so much.
And that last spring when the cherry tree in front of Tompkins was pinker than it had been any
spring before, when the trees were greener and the Elmira hills were bluer, we couldn't help wishing
we weren't quite so old and responsible and mature. . .

We arrived-92 Freshmen strong. Ninety-two pairs of feet explored strange buildings, ran across
green campus, and ached with the excitement of it all. Will we ever forget those three busy and con-
fusing days of Freshman week! Our heads whirled with dinners, teas, a Big Sister coke party, I.Q. test,
and angel robes! Despite our rather morbid outlook as we splashed through puddles from Alumnae to
Cowles, we felt a certain degree of assurance. Even that was shattered, however, when the upperclass-
men began to arrive. We learned later that they really worried about us because there were no cars at
Cornelli. We appreciated their concern, but even though men were on the priority list, we didn't do
too ba ly.
It didn't take us long to get the hang of things. We soon learned to ignore the Sophomores when it
came to anything pertaining to class matters. We sought comfort from the Juniors, who took our
little problems to heart and gave consolation and guidance. We stood in awe of the Seniors, who
smiled reminiscently at us as we held open doors.
Our Social Calendar gradually began to take shape. Every day for about a week we were sure was
going to be Mountain Day. The days dawned clear and bright-still it wasn't announced. Then, on a
foggy and chilly morning we awoke to find it was at last the day. Gasoline rationing prevented any
lengthy excursions, but some of us went to Hilltop, and others on long hikes to interesting spots,
returning to the dorm tired but completely contented.
Cap and Gown Day was the next big event. We were properly impressed by the dignified procession
of faculty and upperclassmen. We cheered proudly when the Sophs crowned our President, even though
our secret had been discovered.
Studies, meanwhile, occupied most of our time. We sat up until the wee hours of the morning ab-
sorbing Keats. With a hazy idea about the writings of Machiavelli and Voltaire, we sleepwalked into
C. C. at what seemed to be the middle of the night.
Then Junior Weekend came! The night of the hayride was our night, because Daisy Mae was a
Freshman. We initiated the Terrace Room, and it really was a Winter Wonderland. Following the
dance, we drifted around the dorm on air-with soft voices, dreamy eyes, gentle sighs, and small
appetites. Cupid had scored many bull's eyes. Keats, Machiavelli, and Voltaire were shamefully
Before long it was Thanksgiving. Most of us couldn't go home, but there was little chance of being
homesick with our delicious Thanksgiving dinner and the cordial open houses.
Time fairly flew-Christmas vacation grew nearer. Though it was rather early in December, we
had no diiiiculty in creating a true Christmas spirit at the Sunday supper served in the dining room. We
had real English plum pudding, and later, in the lounge at Tompkins, there was a Yule log and Christ-
Second semester saw us swinging our partners at Dr. Pott's square dance, applauding enthusiasti-
cally at Mid-Winter Thespis, laughing gaily with the Ensigns, practicing wholeheartedly for Merry
Chanters contest, limping pitifully after gym classes.
And now we are tenderfeet no longer. We are a part of Elmira-full-fledged College Freshmen-our
92 pairs of feet this time eager to explore the three years to come. . .

Elmira's sports have gone ''all-out-for-the-war-effort''g gymnastics is the only course offered in the
department of athletics-in fact, it is required. Following the suggestions of the New York State War
Council, the department is emphasizing a strenuous program of physical fitness.
At first we felt like rookies taking their first two weeks of basic training in the army. We marched
and drilled and fmally mastered, "To the rear, march!" We went through the list of exercises eight
times, 12 times, 16 times, with fond lingering over those preceded by the command "Lying on the
floor!" Then we came back from the gym and fell on our beds exhausted. We limped around the campus
for daysg just as the pain began to disappear, another gym period came around and the trouble started
all over again. We complained, yes, but in good spirit. We were actually intrigued by the novelty of
this activity and the thought of the powerful muscles we must be acquiring.
It did not take us long to adjust to these body building exercises. We soon accepted them, and with
no ill effects. Jumping over the buck, tumbling, trying the duck walk, crawling under tables, doing
the obstacle run, high-jumping, walking a balance beam. . .all these, and more too, are included in the

Commando course. Authorities tell us that this project is on a small scale, but it certainly offers us
plenty of challenges.
Despite the fact that competitive sports are not offered as courses, the students have participated in
them on their own initiative-as extra-curricular activities under the direction of the Athletic Associa-
The council, made up of the managers of various sports, plans and directs our recreation throughout
the year. To them we owed the program of entertainment that made Thanksgiving Day complete. At

envied White Blazer Girl, the personification of our ideals of fair play.

formed as a trial, it proved popular enough to be continued this year. Badminton is not the slow,
monotonous sport some people think it is! For proof, witness the players scurry about the court,
smashing out wicked drives, skillfully returning trick shots.
The wheel goes round and round. . .it's a long, long way to Sullivan's monument Cwhen you're
hoohn' itlj. It seemed a shame to break so many traditions so A. A. formed a new one-organized hikes
and cycling. lt all started on Mountain Day, Miss Oakley and Miss Finter led a group on a long hike.
Other girls gaily mounted bicycles, and with a "I-leigh-ho," away they went. They all had such a
grand time that they decided to form clubs and get together on foot and on Wheels for frequent hikes
and cycle trips. By the time they had covered three or four miles their appetites had reached their
limits, so the girls took lunches along and had picnics. Fun, eh what?

side out and the volleyball game is under way. We have had some very exciting games this year be-
tween the classes, but, of course, the highlight of the season was, as usual, the faculty-student game,
and, as usual, the faculty team Won! But someday perhaps.. . .
Dribbles down the floor. . .foul, free shot. . .a pass, a jump, and a basket! Through the enthusiastic
efforts of Ruthie Stevens, basketball has remained one of the most popular sports. After extensive
practice games, the players met a team from the Heights and proved to be victorious. A trip out to the
Heights for another game gave the palms again to our team.
Crossed sticks-take it down the side, right wing-Moorhead leading down the field-watch it,

the exceptional freshman team who dared to challenge the upperclassmen to battle it out.

"I HAVE THE FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENTS TO MAKE"
"Executive Council meets in Cowles Parlors tomorrow"-the presidents of organizations to har-
monize the activities of all-skillful managing and efficient blending.
"There will be a meeting of French Circle, Wednesday night"-has kept the spirit of France in our
minds with meeting once a month-games, discussions, bridge played enfr-ufzcair-an impressive Christ-
mas party with lovely carols-a farcical evening with Tovuriteb.
"Compulsory Glee Club rehearsals every night this week' '-furnished the choir for Friday chapel-
supported the W. S. S. F. drive with a part in the concert-occasional broadcasts over WENY-Five
o'clock practice, with Gwynn directing and worrying.
"Could I see the House Presidents after chapel in front of chapel ?"-the House of Representatives,
right-hand men of Senate-noise penalties and the complicated signout books.
"International Relations Club will hold an informal discussion in the 'Rec.' Room"-now an in-
stitution-world affairs over tea cups and accompanied with maps, heated discourse, and cookies.
"Pi Gamma Mu meets tonight for election of oHicers"-honorary society of scholars in social
sciences-quarterly meetings with discussions and papers.
"The topic for the meeting of Debate Council will be 'The Effects of the War on Education' "-to
further the art of elevated argument-the pro's and con's of topics of the times.
"The regular Monday Senate meeting was held"-representatives of the classes, under June's direc-
tion, make decisions, state policies-detailed reports from the house presidents-this year, a new ad-
dition of two freshmen senators-Wednesday chapels: "the following penalties were given."
"Petitions to Social Committee must be in. . .nhfinal decisions on the date for any affair-keepers
of the important and crowded social calendar.
" 'Y' Cabinet meets Wednesday night in Cowles"-directors of an all-campus organization-Big
and Little Sisters paired off under its direction!-the little purple book of Freshman Helps and Presi-
dent's Reception gave the year a good start-Christmas Bazaar was an exotic Oriental fair that sold for
the Near East Relief-Chapel once a month and Vespers, our spiritual side-the W. S. S. F. drive in
February and Silver Bay.
"Important meeting of the Forum of the War Activities Committee"-a new organization this
year, a student and faculty council to co-ordinate all war efforts-the ''two-baby-cokes-for-a-baby-
bond-a-week drive' '-Red Cross bandage-rolling afternoons and evenings-impressive chapel programs
and a Cornet of War Information to keep us war-conscious.
"The following girls have Octagon assignments in the phone room"-news on and off campus-the
new "Letters to the Editor" column fought many a battle and won some-Beezie's bustling for last
"Material for Sybil should be handed to Shields on or before"-outlet for the creative urge-literary
efforts in poetry, short story and essay-entertainment for the appreciatives.
"Press Club picnic will be held Tuesday night"-to keep the world in touch with us-releases to
local newspapers about our Big Women on Campus-
"Math Club will meet this evening"-topics and discussions of interest to the mathematics scholar
-a play about the conventional Mr. X and Mr. Y.
"Classical Club announces compulsory rehearsals of Christmas carols at five today"-songs in
Greek and Latin-a resurrection of ancient history-Greek women masked with beards of stockings.
"There will be a meeting of the members of the Art Club"-form and line-for the talented only-
aesthetics expressed in pigments.

Thespis is not just the dramatic organization of Elmira College. It's tryouts and breathless hours,
frantic searches for talented men, rehearsals and weary bones, scenes done over. . .it's grease paint and
old cream, bearded ladies, "Miss Quinlan, are my wrinkles on right?". . .it's trunks full of armor and
helmets and pantaloons. . .it's cans of paint and streaked smocks, nails and hammers, wallpaper and
thrones, Dayton's never exhausted patience. . .it's spears and shields, an apple for Joe, a grape for
Heroica, and a haggard property manager. . .it's Miss Morrow's ice cream session in the "Rec" room
.. .it's "The Night" with programs and flowers, packed Chapels, stage manager's signal, "You're
or1!". . .it's curtain calls and congratulations.
And somehow it's probably the
bashful glances and bubbling giggles
in Tom Sawyer, the different dialects
and dramatic suspense in Letter: to
Lucerne, the Amazon women and
Greek men in The Wnrriwfr Husband
that you'll never forget. But it's the
sleepy eyes in early morning at the
Keeney Theater, the hours of strug-
gling with a Polish accent, and the
tedious drilling of a feminine army
that you may never know about.
It's all these things-the fun, the
glory, the hard work-that makes
our Thespis what it is.

May Hrst, long before the crowning ceremony, we gathered in the Garden Theater to make a few
last guesses as to who would be queen. The Freshmen bustled around in their new class jackets, worn
for the first time in honor of this occasion. The Sophomores buzzed excitedly among themselves. The
Juniors sat back and wondered. And the Seniors, their curiosity completely under control, remembered
sadly that this was their last May Day.
Wild enthusiasm greeted the announce-
ment of Anne Peters as queen. But tradition
had to be broken, for Anne had been told the
secret. She had planned to go home that
week-end, and, of course, we couldn't have
a coronation without a queen. An eager
throng followed our graceful queen to the
newly-erected flag pole where we proudly
watched her raise the flag.
Two weeks later the Freshmen presented
their May Day dances with a patriotic theme.
Beginning with a colorful Stnry and Stripe:
number,' America was effectively interpreted.
Music for the succeeding dances was taken
from the Grand Canyon Suite.
Transportation dilhculties had prevented
our going to Watkins Glen for our May Day
exercises as in former years, but our spirit and
expectancy had not been dampened in the

HE Trustees whose names appear on page 12 send greet-
ings 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. 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 com-
promise in quality. To every alumna who reads this page,
the Trustees urge that you help during the coming year-
1. By telling your acquaintances ofthe good points ofthe
2. By finding good students in your community, telling
them about Elmira College, and writing the Director
of Admissions or the President giving their names and
3. By writing the President, for the benefit of the Admin-
istration of the College and the Trustees, anything you
know that will help make the College better.
We Thank You for Your Part Cooperation
