DEDICATION We you you you you 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. 7 ff 'Y I VG' X f- ' x l 0 He Said- He Said- He Said- "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 civilized." 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 acting courageously. 8 TN' J, J'-T fr F .!"""'z -,, ,5 14' X .

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. Adriana Par1navi.r, Prexidentf Barbara Swirls, Vite-Pre.ride11r,' Marilyn Bowne, .S'ecrermjf,' Berg' jane Hood, Treamrer. 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.. . . 18 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 our faces. 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 next year?

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 Dari: Fuller, Pre.ridw1t.' Cynthia Zimmerman, Vice - Prefideurx Alire Mellgard, .S'ecretmy.' Sarah Eick, Treamrer. I 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. 78 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. . . 79 SENICDRS FRONT Row: Lillian Raven, Mary Malcolm, jean Batchelor, SxscoND Row: Nfurglnzrite Cieri, Mf1rgaf'et Sbieldx, janet Cmig, Maf'ie Bailey, Nfargarut Bmznar, Marlgaf Ham.

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 neglected.. 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- mas carols. 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. . . 84 Fnom' Row: foyco Colburn, Marion Niotlvr, joan fojrzgy, foyco .S'n1itb, Exrello Srarano, Virginia Radloy, Borg' Lu Wboat, Lara Fixk, Hope Woolloy.

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 90 VfC6'PI'0.ffdUlIl,' Mi,rJ Cnrlzcrirm Fin- lerf Mi,r.r Mildred Oakley: Extber .SlfdfI', Fre.fi:leur,' Mfllj Millzfe, Trem- 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- tion Council. 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 the spring banquet A. A. awarded numerals and to the truly athletic and announced the much- envied White Blazer Girl, the personification of our ideals of fair play.

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 91 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?

Through the enthusiastic efforts of Ruthie Stevens, basketball has remained one of the most popular sports.

Crossed sticks-take it down the side, right wing-Moorhead leading down the field-watch it, goalie-On wet ground or dry the hockey players followed the little White ball. Special credits go to the exceptional freshman team who dared to challenge the upperclassmen to battle it out.

Slide, slide, lift-falls in rondo-the pendulum swing and a long stretch upward-and down and up-for those with, or desiring, extra grace of movement there was a modern dance class twice a week. We admit flit may be a workout but one with beautiful results. Hold your bow up-pull back to your cheek-aim for the top of the target-and a line of erect archers under fall sunshine sent their arrows to the targets. Bulls-eyes? You bet. Bring your quarter and your bathing suit and go swimming at the Who can forget the joy of swimming in mid-winter, the bitter chlorine taste and coming back with wet hair freezing in the cold? Thirty all. . .a racket capably swung. . .tennis doubles spring and fall decided the champions and an occasional exhibition match added to our interest in this sport. With new and improved physical prowess we have participated in a full round of sports this year.

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.

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. 110 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 least. ,,g," ..

A FRIEND H. A. PETERSON, D.D.S. H. H. PETERSON, D.D.S. 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 College. 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 addresses. 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. i' We Thank You for Your Part Cooperation ik , TRUSTEES OF ELMIRA COLLEGE 133 F w M -x V , H 4 . 4 4 u 1 i I 1 .
