You helped us through our sophomore year, and gave us encouragement as juniors. You have entertained us at buffet suppers. We have sat on the floor around your fire- place, discussing all sorts of things. You have listened to our problems, and carefully examined the 'facts. You have given us helpful advice, your sympathy when We needed it, and Your congratulations when We triumphed. You have spoken in chapel, and given us suggestions about our health and our examinations. We like your graciousness, your interest, and kind understanding. We like your qual- ities-poise, charm, and jollity. And so We, the Class of 1946, dedicate our yearbook to you, Miss Lyon. 2746 f .wi EMQSUM' , N. ap- -vm jg iid MZMOZ7 Xl:lfLf6'C.4 ADMINISTRATIO Board 0 f Trustees S. G. H.

We aim to do the best we can In making history. Trying to be sophisticated although a bit ap- prehensive of the newness of a collegiate environment, we were taken in tow by our Big Sisters when we registered in the fall of '42. We learned song upon song-from Back in as S to Abic. We quickly absorbed the tenets of student government and the tradition of paying small courtesies to faculty and upper- classmen. The white and gold banner of '46 was un- furled for the first time at Senior Weekend by Freshman Class President Marie Marsh. The announcement of Mary Margaret McCall as the Patron Saint of '46 and the debut of our class song were a part of that same Senior Weekend. Page fourteen The first of many picnics was the Junior- Freshman picnic on XVest Hill where We were greeted by triumphant Sophomores. With a scroll in hand, Dr. Kahrl, Patron Saint of '44, led our Big Sisters in a skit. Later in the fall we acquired Sophomore buddies after running an obstacle course at a party in the gym. For Tl'tltiiIif01Z mm' Quiet .RL'fil1C'llN?l1lf was our first attempt at song writing for Merry Chanters, but the banner went to our Big Sister class. To crown the faircsf quam of Nfrzjf that spring, the scene shifted from Watkin's Glen to Cowles chapel. XVe chose Joan Moorhead as Queen of the May and honored her in an original tribute. The man shortage did not cause Miss McCall any difficulty and the close of our Freshman days saw her busily preparing for a June wedding. But before her departure we feted our Patron Saint at the class banquet held at the Country Club. Again the Sophomores crashed our party and ate desert with us- chocolate pic instead of the traditional ice- cream. In spite of Contemporary Civilization, an innovation as of September, 1942, and an academic "must" for Freshmen, the Class of '46 looked ahead to a year of sleuthing with Barbara Sweet as Sophomore class president. You were scheming, we were rlreaming and had to be awakened by the Juniors for early morning coffee and rolls at the Junior-Fresh- man picnic at Grove Park. At Convocation ceremonies that fall the Freshmen themselves revealed the identity of their class president, much to our chagrin. We like someone that's frm so at Senior Weeltend we chose Dean Lyon to succeed Mary Margaret McCall Babcock as the Patron Saint of '46. Soon after Senior Weekend we chose our buddies by means of a treasure hunt. Clues laboriously placed in the chapel organ, under gym lockers, and such led the Freshmen to their " treasures"--their Sophomore buddies. Red paper hearts dangled from ceiling lights and showed through window panes at our Valentine Dance in Tompkin's lounge. Dates were V12 and army men, ensigns, and marines. At the Pott's all-college party we shared the prize for the best skit with the faculty. The margin between genius and insanity was very small in the youthful days of our faculty, according to the lyrics of the "Alma Mater" of the Bewildered Offspring Academy-scene of the Sophomore skit. A cherished izleal, soon your heart she'll steal, for she,s your Elmira dream girl-and the Merry Chanters banner was in our possession. It was not only a prize-winner but soon an all-college favorite. After Merry Chanters came the Senior prom, and Dot Strohsall, as the "Spirit of Spring", won distinction for the Sophomores. After detailed and clandestine preparations the Freshmen skipped to Corning for their banquet-a success in spite of our inability to accept their invitations for dessert. Mock hiay Day fApril, 1944j with Aunt Jemima Rossi as the queen, attended by zoot-suited Sophomores, anticipated the real ceremony which was to take place the following day. The worlel assumes its sweetest guise to crown the fairest Queen of May. As the Freshmen sang, Sophomore Queen, Alice Lehmann, was escorted to her throne to receive the crown of flowers. On the morning of May Day we presented gay boutonnieres to each member of the faculty. 'We were the guests of our Big Sisters at the Strawberry Festival, making us aware of the approaching Commencement. At Class Day che Seniors marched into the chapel between chains of laurel which we carried as we sang the Laurel Song-For it's '44 forever, Sister class we'll fail thee never, In praise we'll lift our voices, To the Class ,44. As Big Sisters ourselves we embarked on a busy year. There was more responsibility, and we felt the first tinge of that "after college, what?', feeling. Brenda Woods, Junior Class president, headed the newly-created steering committee which guided the Freshman class until the election of the Freshman president. The picnic at Eldridge Park featured Dr. Agony and the song we dedicated to our "Little Sisters"-'Cause we know college rlays will always he sharerl together. Amid sparkling branches and under a green moon a snow man leaned against a lamp post at our "Moonlight Madnessv prom. Date com- mittees bustled to give everyone on opportunity for lots of fun aml a chance at romarree. Miss Lyon was hostess to the Juniors at a luncheon at the Langwell before the Class of '46 launched into its spring activities. Stage Door was the Junior Thespis presentation with Brenda Woods and Pat Dressler cast in the leading roles. The Senior-Junior banquet came soon after the play closely followed by- the publication of Iris. Witli but a little way to go, we anticipate a Senior year complete with weekend, prom, and voluminous preparations and plans, and we know that- Whevz from El7IZi1'!l,S gates we go To face the coming years, We'll cherish -nzenziories warm aml true Mixed with joy :mel tears.

Chiefly through the instrument of the marriage bureau, the class, which as a Freshman class had been 'sixty strong, now dwindled to thirty- nine. One Senior was prompted to say that "all those who couldn't find someone eligiblen were back as Seniors. But the class took heart from the statement of their Patron Saint, President Pott, who commented that he thought there were a few eligibles left. Yes, the ranks of the class of 1945 looked a bit depleted in those first October days, but second floor Tompkins soon began to reverber- ate with the sound of familiar voices: Cory's vibrant soprano filled the corridors, and WC1DC1',S dull roar broke the peace of early Page seventy-eight morning snoozes-yes, things felt almost normal in a few days. Poochie grasped the gavel firmly in one hand and her dignity in the other, to open the first student chapel, and Mary Nenno took a hasty glance at financial reports and reporter prospects, and quickly plunged into the holo- caust of a weekly OL'fdg07Z publication. Anne Steele suffered a few moments of despair until the delegates to the Student Christian Move- ment Conference had beds to accommodate them during their weekend in Elmira. The "Irishmen" of former Room F still debated who was going to clean the room Qamong other topicsj, and made themselves at home in McKenzie. The Seniors arrayed themselves in academic gowns and black- tasscled hats to take part in Convocation Day ceremonies and felt a little bit out of place in such dignified surroundings. Before Connie Ryan and Millie Rogow could turn around, Senior Wecli- end was upon themg song re- hearsals late at night were the popular vogue. All ended happily with the two chairmen leading the class down the aisle of Cowles in their new green gabardine suits. "Sandy" Lach was named class mascot and proved to be the "hir of the hour". Witli a cast headed by Thespis president, .Ioan Moor- head, the senior play, Susan mul God, caused class members to settle back with pride at its popular reception. Seniors looked on with satis- faction as their Patron Saint, the "Admiral", received the "cap of his command" at the college Christmas party. The highlight of January was thc all-college mas- querade, with the three "Ink Spotsi' displaying their knowledge of rhythm for the Senior Skit. But after-graduation jobs were also topics of discussion, serious coffee shop confabs were a common sight. Yes, even obscuring the glamor of Senior Spring Prom were thoughts of responsibility not far off. The Class of 1945 was a little apprehensive-a little sad to see college days go. But through it all they remembered that the spirit of Sadie Hawkins was Z1 spirit of courage in the face of failure-so they lifted their eyes to the future.

Zlass af 1947 Sophomores--We could hardly believe it. But there we were, in Grove Park, giving a Weenie-roast for fl'1C'F1'CSl11T1CI'1, with hot dogs and cokes, plaid shirts, and singing. Soon we began our careers of sleuthing-those long Watches in the Cowles' smokers, listening for a stray clue which would send us off in a hurry, hoping to arrive as 'zguestsv of Juniors and Freshmen before they could get to their picnic themselves-the mad dash out to Eldridge Park-Lucy Rossi in a Frosh-filled truck-cookies and apples and Mr. Agony. Wfe were Sophomores. NVe could sing Get zz lViggle On, and walk through doors first. And then came Mountain Day-much better late than never. Picnics at Hilltop, picnics with Mark Twain--falling leaves and blue skies. Convocation and purple chrysanthemums. We got a new name. The "destroyer class", the "Admiral', called us. Page eighty-two Presidential Election Day, 1944. Buttons and posters on parade. Heated discussions, and "my father says-". The all-night vigil in the smoker-chewed nails and cheer-up letters-smug grins and congratulations. Next time Weill vote. Senior Weelcend. Tears and laughter. Big Sisters, lovely in green suits+Baby "Sandy" -Joan Moorhead with "Barrie" McGrath heading the cast of Susan- ami Goff-yesterday's memories, but new ones to dream about, too. Thanksgiving in Elmira. Those turkeys Mom couldn't get, with Junior Prom coming up for dessert. Moonlight Madness-belh bottoms and blue-lighted snowman. Sunday at Hatt's-all this, and steak, too! Came our Freshman Buddies-a treasure hunt ending at the Library or Rossi's or a Tompkins closet, where We, the "treasures", waited eagerly, thrilled, yet worried that they wouldn,t like us as much as we liked them. cl H'ld b d Bon Durant Collins Protheroe, Graham, Gor- Third Row-Gregory, Boots, Blaekfor , 1 e ran , , , . don, Bussey.

Despair, desperation--and success! The unfor- gettable moment for revelation, when we opened our mouths to shout triumphantly, and emitted a hoarse croak. Home and Christmas trees. New Ycar's Eve and back again. Short Weeks for studying, exams, vacation. A new semester, with Merry Chanters, the Freshman banquet, Senior Prom, and a dance of our own. A much-too-short SCHICSECK. The end of the year-almost Big Sisters our- selves, with our own Big Sisters going soon, but never to be forgotten. Soon our days as "destroyers" would be over, but those that re- mained, we packed full to the brim. Our Sophomore year' at Elmira. Did we like it? We loved it.

There just wasn,t time to be bewildered or frightened. Wfe deposited our bags in our rooms in Cowles and Tompkins, and from then on life seemed to be just a series of parties and How-do-you-d0's. How quickly we became acquainted! Our Big Sisters introduced us to The Elmira Dlfcfmz Girl and the 1'CSt of Elmira's songsg we played charades with the Seniors, the Sophs enter- tained us at a weenie-roast. One afternoon, with our Big Sisters, we stealthily emigrated to Eldridge Park for a picnic. The Sophomores finally located us, but we were there in plenty of time to "hearty welcome" them. Aristole, election discussions, A Room of 011955 Own, the Attainment test-but we Page e'igl1.t'y-sion weren't unhappy because Junior Prom came along-long dresses and uniforms, dancing. The "Moonlight Madnessl' was over too soon, but couples met again Sunday over a capon dinner at the Mark Twain. At Christmastime we fledglings launched on a dance of our own. The combination of Vic music, Navy blues, and Christmas greens added something to Tompkins' Lounge we,d never seen before. Freshman Day we hailed Ruth Casler as our president fhow .did the Sophomores guess?j and, not deterred by C. C., we chose Dr. Swearingen our Patron Saint. From then on, time waited for none of us. Swiftly we sailed along through Merry Chanters, through our banquet, through May Day-through to the end of our first year at Elmira.

Leavitt, Gordon, Thevenet, Hint, Moorhead, Shcppman, Cory, XVeiner, A. Leavitt ' Student Government at Elmira is made up of all members of the student body. In the hands of Senate, a body comprised of repre- sentatives from each of the four classes, lie the reins of the government. At the head of the whole organization stands the President- for the academic year 1944-1945, Marilyn Leavitt. As president she is the highest repre- sentative of the student body, acting in this capacity to work with the Administration of the college. The Executive Council acts as the "clear- ing house" for campus activities. Composed of heads of all organizations, its purpose is to promote closer cooperation among campus groups. Early in the fall the Council members gathered at Dean Lyon's house to work with the Social Committee in setting up a social calendar for the year. Two or three Weekends were left free as hopeful students considered possibilities of a carnival, a barn dance, or a movie party. Although the most difficult job was over with the completion of the social calendar, Executive Council remained active. Repre- senting all college groups, members of the Council brought in new suggestions for the betterment of campus activities, discussed pertinent college problems, and worked toward a coordination of all campus groups. Belonging to Executive Council has been fun, too. It has meant sitting around the fire- place at the Dean's house munching pop corn, talking, and laughing. It has been a feeling of everyone Working in a sincere attempt to make the most of life on Elmira's campus. Page ninety-three Student gellrfwshzp Student Fellowship, a new organization, made its entrance into Elmira College-life in November, including in its membership students of all faiths and creeds. It was organized for the purpose of encouraging wholesome religious and social life on campus by planning and supporting services of worshipg by conducting in monthly meetings group discussions on appropriate and timely subjects, by affording opportunities for social service, and by directing certain college social activities. In weekly meetings the Cabinet, consisting of the officers and the committee chairmen, made plans for the activities of the organization. Miss Orbison, Miss Greene, and Dr. Kahrl, the faculty advisory board for the year, helped club members execute these plans. S. F. assisted in the Sunday evening Vesper services, and sponsored Religious Emphasis Days. It held exam teas, a Christmas Bazaar, and helped Student Government plan the all-college Christmas party. Some members of the Fellow- ship directed their energies toward social ser- vice word at the Neighborhood House. Student Fellowship is connected with the Student Christian Movement of New York State, and with the World Student Christian Federation. In the fall it was hostess to the Student Christian Movement conference, and later in the year S. F. members attended conferences held at other colleges.

Representatives of each class, a student chairman, and four faculty members comprise the committee which plans the various war activities of the college. Vfhile materials were available we folded bandages for the Red Cross. We helped collect money during the Red Cross drive at local movie houses. Last year, as the high point of the Com- mittee's activity, we sponsored five L.C.I.'s at Pier 42 in New York. Following the launch- ing we taxied over to the Biltmore Hotel for a dance with the officers and men of the ships. We "adopted" those L.C.I.'s, and since then have continued to send to the men a flow of letters, packages of games, books, candy, and N-2 tobacco. Answering letters come to the girls from all parts of the globe. For two years the Wai' Activities Committee has co-operated with the Student Fellowship in holding a Campus 'Wai' Chest. The proceeds of this drive have gone to the National War Fund Organizations, to the Red Cross, and to the World Student Service Fund. Each student has been asked to contribute. The grand total this year reached s2,2S0. Also in cooperation with the Student Fellowship, War Activities promoted a drive for books which were distributed to students all over the world by the World Student Service. Wfar Activities has tried to coordinate its activities with the various organizations on campus so that every student may help in the war effort of the college.

But the Glee Club had a very im- portant job to do in spite of the war. This year a chorus of' eighty-five Voices sang for evening vespers every Sunday. Along about 5:30 of a Monday or 'Wednesday afternoon, a chorus of voices could be heard raised in song- the Glee Club rehearsing for its weekly job. It wasn't all work and no play. Black-gowned and grave, the girls gave a program of ballads and religious songs for the State Federation of Women's Clubs at the Mark Twain Hotel. f The Club, not being able to travel for out-of- town concerts, invited the Sampson Glec Club to come to sing at Elmira. Entertaining the Navy was fun. They can really sing, and the girls enjoyed sitting back to listen for-once while someone else made the music. Mr. Bement, Gwynne to everyone, worked tirelessly to arrange a series of radio programs to be broadcast from station NWENY in the Mark Twain Hotel. Several invitations to sing elsewhere brought out the black robes again, bringing the Glee Club often before the public. .

Club members listened to such international experts as Louis Fischer, Thomas Ybarra, and Konrad Heiden, and realized the responsibility We hold as a nation and as individuals. They sat in Cowles' parlors, reinforced by food and cigarettes, listened to the election returns, and expressed their opinions readily enough. They Page 'niazeiy-eight . 5 directed lively bull sessions with faculty mem- bers, and held open forums with college and guest speakers. They aimed to encourage individrual ex- pression of views on World affairs, and to obtain an adequate picture of recent events of international scope.

Leavitt Page one hundred to publish a weekly newspaper with an attempt at complete coverage, to allow more students a chance to participate in its operationg to keep a complete and accurate record of college affairs, to provide expression for intercollegiate exchange of news and national political questions, to encourage the existence of active campus organizations, and to foster a feeling of usefulness for a student's life. The Octagon sponsored an all--campus straw vote of the national presidential election. Through the use of intercollegiate press associ- ation bulletins, news of other colleges was made available. Records of current college activities and an almost complete file of the Ocfugon, since the founding of the newspaper in 1917, were accumulated. Feature articles in the form of character sketches of members of the faculty and administration, and articles on the members and aims of campus organizations served to make readers better acquainted with the "inside" of college activities. Second semester the Administration sent the Oclfagon to parents of all college students, thus keeping families in closer touch with the college. Letters flying back and forth all summer with new ideas, staff meetings in the fall to decide on a central theme for our 1946 Iris, and we found out that it takes an awful lot of material to fill a volume. A rough draft of our ideas came back from the engravers in the form of a 'tdummy" layout and we saw the book begin to take on a definite form. Wfrite- ups were assigned, class and group pictures scheduled, Junior portraits taken, snap shots appealed for. We tried hard to make some- thing out of the chaos. The business staff, hard at work gathering ads, ran amuck of Christmas business rushes in local stores. Being the peristent type, they haunted retail emporium and business office alike and finally came through with the re- quired amount of advertising space. And so here we present to you our yearbook, the 1946 Iris. , U15 1946 Iris' EDITORIAL STAFF First Row: Colburn, Jefferson, Lehmann Second Row: Hughes, Sweet, Reichhard, Crane, Woods BUSINESS STAFF First Row: Hopstein, Northrop Second Row: Meeker, Beemer, Zimmermann, Vakiener Third Row: Waddell, Verduin, Hoffman Page one, hzmdrecl one Sibyl I Woods, Logan, A.

You've read everything from poems in the classical style to humorous essays on leg-winders and suchg no line is drawn as to the type of material which may be contributed. Some would-be Margaret Mitchells and Daphne du Mauriers wait until a few hours before the dead-line before inspiration comes. Then all else is abandoned in favor of some allegro typing and a quick clash to one of the editors with the finished product. The long hours of selection, proofreading, and cutting and pasting a galley begin for the editorial staff. No sooner has the job been completed than it is again time to urge contri- butors to renew their efforts. It is a never- ending cycle which keeps the staff on its toes.

The scene is laid in Mrs. Orcutt,s Footlights Club, a boarding house Where all the hopes of sixteen girls are revealed. The central plot concerns dynamic and courageous Terry Randall who overcomes dis- couragement and poverty to attain a position in the theater Where we're sure she will conquer. One of the fellow aspirants, Louise, gets marriedg another, Kaye, finds the com- petitive life of the theater too strong for herg a third, Jean, goes into pictures, but Terry, with the help of idealistic David Kingsley sticks to her guns.

Wfhen she is finally persuaded to give up her crusade for a short time to be a Wife and mother, Susan opens up their Long Island home and Blossom stays there all summer instead of going to a camp as in previous years. The valiant attempt nearly falls through but her husband and daughter succeed in making Susan understand that they need her and the curtain falls on a scene of "happiness ever after".

As they had shared everything else during their four years of college, they now shared the honor of being Elmirzfs White Blazer Girls. A. fl. Erfurzeil Mud and rain early in the year shattered our hopes for a tennis tournament. Hockey began with lots of enthusiasm andthe girls waded through leaves and more mud to sock the ball around the field. About forty of us hiked up to Rorick's Glen in the crisp autumn air. Hamburgers and onions that night with plenty of songs and lots of fun. Thanksgiving found us all in Elmira, so A.A. planned an all-day program. In an exciting volleyball game the Faculty-Senior team bested a Junior-Sophomore-Freshman combination. Then faculty, students, and guests moved over to Fassett Commons for a delicious turkey dinner complete with all the trimmings, fol- lowed by coffee in the Rec room. In early December, we took advantage of Old Man Wi11ter's snow and cold to go on a hayride. Songs and chatter kept us warm as we rolled out to the Dixie Barbeque for food. At the first of the year A.A. launched an enthusiastic calendar sale to provide Elmirans with handy little engagement reminders. Winter months were busy months with basketball, volleyball, badminton, bowling at Rossi's, and swimming in the Y.M.C.A. pool. At the A.A.-War Activities Carnival, side shows, games, and food were the main at- tractions, profits going toward the Elmira College Bond. In the spring we were busy with a program of tennis tournaments, baseball games, an Archery Telegraphic meet, and overnight hikes out to Stanley Woods. First Row: Rossi, MacMillan, M. B.

The most surprised and happy of all was Alice Lehmann as two questing pages stole her from the audience as the Freshman choice for Elmira's May Queen of 1944. The crowd waited impatiently while, behind scenes, admiring Freshmen arrayed the Queen in traditional royal robes. Appreciative oh's and ah's greeted the Queen and her aides as the procession appeared in the doorway and slowly moved toward the throne. A crown of white flowers was placed on her head while the fresh- men, wearing their new green jackets, hummed the May Day Song. The simple ceremony closed with the Freshmen singing a medley of songs in tribute to their May Queen-"a pretty girl is like a melody . . ." Gordon, May Queen Alice Lehmann, Thevenet :1 Moak may Day As Sophomores the class of '46 came to dinner decked out in jewels and bows, gaudy artificial flowers and bangles, red bandannas, and Zooty slacks. Wliite teeth gleamed in blackened faces as we stood around the tables singing our "revised" version of the May Day Song. Then to the gym to crown our Mock May Queen. Chanting "A-menu we slowly snaked around the gym in a long line, leading our Queen, Aunt Jemima Rossi, to her throne. The hero came rowing across the gym on a human boat to win his black-faced queen. They were united in holy wedlock and as he rowed away again to the wars, Queen Jemima was ceremoniously crowned-in a shower of pancake flour.

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 compromise in quality. To every alumna who reads this page, the Trustees urge that you help during the coming year- 1. By telling your acquaintances of the good points of the College. 2. By finding good students in your community, telling them about Elmira College, and writing the 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. l We Tlumlc You for Your Past Cooperation TRUSTEES OF ELMIRA COLLEGE unnuulnlnnnu ummm Page one hunclrecl twenty-six A Portraits b ' ' y your off1c1al year book photographer. a specialist in taking natural, true-to-life portraits.
